Baby album

I made an album for my niece and her parents to put pictures in. It was supposed to be a christening/name giving gift but they got it a bit earlier since I didn’t want them to forget to take pictures and write down memories each month. It’s my first big album, with 20 12×12 pages. I mostly used the collection Let’s polka, mon amie by Lawnfawn and some other pieces that matched the colors in the collection.

New born baby girl card

Another card where I combined two Promarker challenges, I love promarkers #155 and Passion for promarkers #185.  The layout is from this week’s sweet stop sketch but I forgot that I had to have birds and or bees, so I will have to make another card for that!
I must admit that I’m getting more and more in love with the Flexmarkers, the tip is just lovely to color with.  Today I also tried to use the fine liner tips for Promarker pens, too bad it messed up my normal tip, otherwise it was super neat! I used it to add dashes on the text piece. Next time I might try it on the wide tip instead as I almost never use them and I think they are slightly harder.


Any preggers out there that I know and who is expecting a baby girl? No?


Lukas 2 years

My cousin Lukas turns two years today so I’m heading to a birthday party in a few hours and of course, I made a card for him. I only used paper from my scrap stash this time and I got to use some of my washi tapes and alphabet stickers/thickers.
As always when I have a card to make I take a look at the ongoing challenges, this is the layout from Mojo Monday #276.


A Christening card for Jasmina

One of my cousins has got two lovely girls and the youngest of them, Jasmina, had her Christening ceremony today and I made a card with the present on, just like I did for her sister Emilia a few years ago. I even happened to find the same necklace for her.

The card says “for Jasmina on your Christening day”. I also added “from your dad’s cousins Therese and Robert” later on as it was a gift from both of us.

The patterned paper is from my Dreamcatcher paper pad by First edition paper.  I did some stamping and simple decorations and I also used my new favorite, stickles, to add some sparkles.
