Pop Fizz

Yaaaay, some scrapping has been happening - and some pocket page scrapping too! I really enjoyed the February kit from Cocoa Daisy - Pop Fizz. Often when it's been a while since I've been scrapping, I find it really hard to get started. It's like I need to 'warm up' before I remember how to do it. But this time it felt so easy!

I haven't been taking a lot of photos and I decided to do just one page for each week, for weeks 2 and 3. My DITL goal isn't to cover every week during the year, but instead I love creating a page every now and then and I don't stress about it.

I added splatters of acrylic ink and mist to the "welcome to" card and the stickers are from the main kit.

The stamp set in the DITL kit includes this fab "a day in the life" stamp!

And here is week 3...

The tiny doilies in the DITL kit are so cute! 

I combined the heart journaling spot from the DITL kit with the feather die cut from the main kit.

Some more stamping... the hearts are included in the DITL stamp set. The cute blue stars are from the BYOAO. 

I mostly used the main kit for this layout, but the stamping was done using stamps from the DITL kit. I also used some gesso and mist to create the background. 

We had snow, we build a snowman that kept us company for a few weeks, and then suddenly we had warmer weather and rain... I LOVE the "like" and the "dislike" stamps from the DITL kit and I used them direcly on my photos here. 

I also made a couple of "thank you - tags", using the main kit and the DITL.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Gathering - the November Cocoa Daisy kit

The November kit from Cocoa Daisy is called Gathering. Since I'm studying and working a bit too much right now, it's not as easy to find time to scrap as before. But opening a new Cocoa Daisy box and digging into a new kit is pure joy! Making time for scrapbooking is so important to me!

Here I combined some pretty paper circles with gesso and splatters of mist. Writing around the edges of elements - here circles - is a favourite of mine when it comes to journaling.

Again, some gesso and mist and a photo of my girls from this past summer. I love the contrast that the black thickers from the "build your own add ons" provides.

I wanted to take a pretty autumn photo of my girls and they ended up kind of grumpy, and refusing to stand next to each other... I love them so much - grumpy or not! 

I also created two cards using the super cute cat stamps from the Planner kit.

The September Cocoa Daisy kit is called Daydream!

I love this pretty kit and I am so glad that I also got the DITL kit, because I believe it's one of my favourites so far. I used the DITL cards and embellisments on two layouts and one pocket page spread.

Look at this "be amazing" card for example! Perfect for scrapping about my amazing Tuva... I don't know how many turns she took down that slide, truly enjoying herself. :)

Also this was created using the DITL kit + some gesso, acrylic paint and mist. The stamping in the backgorund was made using the set included in the DITL kit.

The background paper I used on my next layout is included in the patterned paper add on. First day of school! 

And here's the DITL spread... keeping it simple because the cards are so pretty in themselves. 

On my final layout I used the main kit, the September printables and the cloud stamp from the DITL kit. I also used the OA roller stamp included in the main kit for my background, together with some gesso. 

The kit is already on sale for subscribers and the general public will be able to place orders on Sept 1st. Check it all out at the Cocoa Daisy site

August Sketch Challenge

The Cocoa Daisy August Sketch Challenge is up!

Here is my take on the fun sketch, using the August 'Hemingway' kit. The kids were climbing and having fun earlier this summer, when visiting Höganäs.

A whole lot of scrapping...

The August kit from Cocoa Daisy is called Hemingway and it's a fab mix of things related to travelling, adventures and reading books.

We've mostly stayed at home or made shorter excursions this summer, but we did a tiny bit of travelling last week and this photo was taken on one of our little trips - to a small island on the eastern coast of Sweden. I was inspired by the pattern on Tuva's dress and cut squares out of a few of the patterned papers from the main kit. I added some gesso to the papers and to the background and also some stitching and fun details.

I also used the super cute Little birds stamp set - love them so much! - and the Elle's studio wood veneers.

The photo on the layout below was taken at the same trip and I created the background using gesso, a stencil + mist in green and blue to match the papers. I used the main kit + the Crate paper cork stickers and the enamel dots from Simple Stories.

We travelled by boat twice during our vacation and these photos are from those two short rides. The first trip took us from Sweden to Denmark and the second ride was to get to the island on the east coast. Both rides felt like an adventure for sure. :)

I used parts of a page protector to create the pockets for the sequins and I mostly used the DITL kit for this layout + the cork stickers and wood veneers mentioned above.

I also used the DITL kit to create this spread for week 29. I don't think I'll ever be creating pocket pages for every week of the year, but I do love the little glimpses of our everyday life that I manage to document like this!

I used the Little birds stamp set as well as the bird stamps from the September Planner kit and painted them with watercolours. 

The Hemingway kits are on sale for subscribers now and they go on sale for the general public on Aug 1st!
