Malin aka Lillpiga

Good morning!

June is passing by in a really fast pace and it’s this weekend it was the best holiday in Sweden: Midsummer! I LOVE the summer with all the flowers, sun, vacation and baths! And since Sweden is the most beautiful country in the world, it’s even more to love about the summer. :)

In Sweden is it broad daylight 24 hours a day in summertime, pretty cool. :) In the northern part, the sun never sets so you can lay on the beach in the middle of the night and take a sunbath.

I have eaten a lot of herring and strawberries, having  cold vodka shots, enjoyed the young potatoes, making our selfs a maypole and had the best company!

Before I show you a layout with yours truly on it, I will show you a traditional maypole from Sweden. We make it out of birch branches and a lot of flowers. The kids dance around it and we girls like to have matching wreath of flowers in our hair. :)

All the material is to find at lovely Wild Orchid Crafts

Dont forget to check out the WOC-blog and the Challenge-blog with new challenges every second monday! :)

Have a really nice day!

Sweet Sparkle

Hi everybody,

Today I want to show you a project with a whole new image by Wee Stamps, Sweet Sparkle (available as a digital image and a rubber stamp). This project would actually be perfectly suitable to enter in our current challenge which is to add pins and/or brads, aren't these gorgeous pins a musthave?
Isn't she just gorgeous? This is actually a notepad and not a card. The sentiment is part of the Friendship Notables 2 set by Raindrop Echo Designs, it was cut with the matching die and then attached to the also matching "Simple" chipboard Frame that I painted with a picket fence paint dabber and then also with a little bit of picket fence crackle paint. I used the crackle paint on the papers as well together with frantage, Stickles and Viva Eiskristall. The amazing butterfly border (Joy! Stencil rand vlinders 6002/0251) is all new from Noor! Design, available through Joy! Crafts and it will be in stores in just a few days, I believe the releasedate is the 25th of June. The pretty papers that I used are by Pion Design.

The gorgeous products that I used from Wild Orchid Crafts are:

A close up of gorgeous Sweet Sparkle, as always colored with Copic Markers and completely 3D paper pieced. The lantern was a challenge but I love how it turned out :).

I hope I have given you some inspiration. Have a great day everybody!!!

All of the flowers, pearls, and pins are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I have used Small Gardenias, Cosmos Daisies, Chrysanthemum, and Sweetheart Blossoms. You can see that I also used some Heart Pins and some Decorative Crown Pins, finishing the front of the card with Self-Adhesive Pearls.
