I mixed a lot of textures here.... cheesecloth, moss, molding paste, corrugated, metal...

From Prima: the flowers, mask, dot stamp, junkyard(bulb). From Glitz - stamp. Shimmerz Sprintz- Tuscan Sun and Princess colors.

My title is a sticker from Close to My Heart and the small butterflies are from the 8th of March paper- Vintage Spring Basics collection.

I have this photo of my lovely niece Sabrina that I took years ago and I think it goes perfect with these beautiful papers.  This kit is full of Prima flowers, buttons, wood pieces, will love it!!!

I painted the sheer ribbon from the kit with shimmerz sprintz.

I added texture with molding paste and a Heidi Swap stencil.

Lots of beautiful embellishments in this kit, my tittle is one of the chipboard pieces from Prima.

Romance ....& Maja May Mood Board

Happy Monday!!! I hope you had a great Mother's Day with your loved ones. Today I share with you my latest Maja Design work, this time I made a fantastic combination with Crochet + Mix Media + Crea Diem = a Romance...take a look..
This page is about my son Alexander and his girlfriend Monique and the story behind this photo...I tell you later...
I chose Crea Diem collection: the Sin lyckas smed paper as my base, then I added these two pieces of crochet that I bought at Michaels.  I used the 13Arts gel medium(transparent) like adhesive for the crochet and lace. Next, I painted with Shimmerz in different colors, glimmer mist and 13 arts inks. I was inspired in the OUAS May sketch for this page and in the 13 Art challenge-Vintage Memories. 

I painted a piece of lace with glimmer mist and put it between the two crochet pieces.

To create a variety of textures I added a metal key and hearts...

I cut out the big clock and used like mat for my photo also I added the jute with the pearls vine like a frame.

The journaling is on the backside..."Never forget that day we went to Jorgito's wedding, it was the time of some wedding traditions and the newly couple called all the singles for the tossing of the bridal bouquet and the garter. First Monique caught the bouquet and then Alexander caught the garter, lol..and everybody started joking about it, when the wedding was, that I had to do the wedding, etc... all night long. It was fun and unforgettable day" 

My tittle is a Scrapmatt chipboard and the stencil that I used in the background is from Heidi Swap. 

Supplies: Crea Diem collection: Sin lyckas smed, Skapa Dagen and Den Oersattliga Tiden papers, Shimmerz paints, Glimmer paint, 13Arts inks, 13Arts gel medium, Ranger Distress Inks, Heidi Swap-stencil, Scrapmatts- chipboard, Pink Paislee-butterflies

Epic Anniversary Event- Scrap Around The World!!!

Hello! It's time to celebrate the first anniversary ...Happy Birthday SATW!!!!  and this month we have an epic event and huge prizes!!!!  WE started this month with a new design team and I'm so happy to stay another term!

This is a fun,beautiful and happy moodboard designed by the lovely Helen Tilbury {South Africa} and owner of SATW.

Here's my take......

I made a page about my daughter 15th  birthday... here are my hubby and my dd..

I worked with 7Dots Studio- Dreamer Collection and Prima flowers.

I used different stamps from: Glitz, Prima and CTMH.

I added a metal book ring to hold the draped paper, the key and the heart....

Now I can't wait to see a project from you....and check the awesome prizes!!! but please read the rules.....




This month things are going to work a little differently BECAUSE it's competition time! 
 Yes I know that EVERY month we host a challenge here but this month it is EPIC!!

We are looking for our 2014 EPIC WINNERS - ie the TOP TEN PLAYERS for our
first year (May 2013 - April 2014) SO we will be choosing 10 WINNERS as per usual
(plus ONE RANDOM WINNER as always!) BUT here is the difference...

1.  We have TEN HUGE prizes (each valued at approximately $100 US!!) 
for TEN WINNERS!  We will not be grading your entries from 1 to 10 this month.
Rather, we have invited TEN GUEST JUDGES to each select one winner,
based on the entry that they find the most suitable, relevant & appealing.
They will be sending their selected winner's name to me, along with a few
 sentences explaining what they really loved about their winning entry.

2.  9 out of 10 of our prizes will be awarded to PAST WOFFERS!  
Woffers are Winners, Features & Finalists, in other words our
 TOP TEN ENTRIES  from the last 12 months!!  This is so that
we are able to determine who are true TOP 10 PLAYERS
 for our First Year are!! So this is like THE FINALS!!

3.  ONE prize will be open to a NEW winner - someone NEVER
featured on our Wall of Fame {WOF} in the past - so there is still
incentive for EVERYONE to enter as one prize is open to anyone
who wins on MERIT & one prize (of $50 value) is open to one
random winner.{as usual but this month even the random
prize is a big one - woot!!}

4.  For your entry to be eligible you need to write 
WOF or NEW after your name WHEN YOU LINK UP - ie:-



(if you've been featured at SATW before & forget
to write WOF, or don't state WOF or NEW you will
automatically be put into the NEW category, for 
which there is only one prize, as opposed to nine!

Instead of writing - Julia Roberts - USA
you should now write - Julia Roberts - USA - WOF
 (if you have been a winner, feature or finalist before 
& have therefore featured in our Wall of Fame in the past)

OR - if you have never been a winner, feature or finalist before,
you need to write - Julia Roberts - USA - NEW {for example!}

Got it?!  If you forget & cannot delete your entry then please
load it again.  Only entries with WOF or NEW after the name
& country will be eligible for any prizes - THANK YOU!!
