Things Tuva says...

Created for the March Designer's challenge at Cocoa Daisy -  this is a layout about things Tuva says. 
I used the March kit from Cocoa Daisy for my layout. If you want to play along you have until April 5th and you can use any supplies you like - it doesn't have to be a CD kit. 

The journaling is one of Tuva's long monologues. Or, it’s kind of a dialogue, but I mostly say things like “wow”, “yes”, “ok”, “oh no” etc… and she talks and talks and talks… :) 
It’s not really possible to translate, but I gave it a try. Perhaps it’s only funny to me.
“If you die you don’t start living again. Unless it’s a game/play. Sometimes when we are playing and someone dies, and then live again, we pretend that you turn into a lion or a tiger or another dangerous animal. I don’t like that because I can only say “wooooaaaa” and no other animal. I can’t sound like a bear, only a tiger or a lion.
The only thing I know about rabbits is that they leap and that they eat carrots.
The tiger family – I think the tiger family eat humans. Do they?
Do tiger families even exist? “

Fluttering by to say hi...

I've almost forgotten how to post to this blog. ;) But today it is happening - yay! 

I think many of us have periods where we are crazy about a certain technique or supply or style etc...? The past few weeks I've been making nothing but cards. And being me, that's pretty strange. :) I went to a crop about a month ago and I was sooo inspired by the fabulous card makers there, and I guess that's why I've rediscovered the card making and also my Copics. It's been a looong time since I used them! 

I also stumbled upon a challenge over at Tiddly Inks and wanted to give it a try. The colours made me think of some of the papers that I still have from my early days as a scrapbooker. Good thing I saved them for more than 10 years since I suddenly needed them today, right? =) 

Colouring is difficult, but relaxing. I totally understand why adult colouring books are such a big hit. The cute digital stamp I used can be found at Tiddly Inks and is called "Fluttering by to say hi". 

Perhaps I'll surprise myself by posting some of the other cards too... to this poor blog of mine...? :)

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
