Carpe Diem!

Hello lovelies and happy Monday! Today I´m stopping by to share another card done with some new paper goods from STAMPlorations and combined with Studio Tekturek papers. Oh, and I also managed to sneak in some old border stickers from my stash.

So this is another win-win card where I managed to combine very old with new and make it work. Also, these tiny tiles from STAMPlorations are perfect focal points to card projects. You get several different ones in a set and can just cut one out that fits your project on that particular moment.

I again used some of my old favorite techniques too: lots of white space, some droplets, some stamping and a cluster as a focal point. It´s sometimes so good to return to old fave ideas, isn´t it? Do you do this often? There used to be a time when not a single project left my table without droplets and now they keep re-appearing again. I think there is always a time for certain kind of projects. I´ve also noticed that in summer I use lighter or brighter & happier colours and depending on the season my color choices change quite a bit. So for me choosing colours probably has to do with my seasonal moods/feelings?

By the way, there is also now a papergoods subscription avaiable at STAMPlorations, so do check it out. Here you can find the link there. And if you want to go and shop, remember to use my discount code to get 20% off your order.

Happy crafting,

Happy Birthday!, Vol 2.0

Hello and happy Monday! Here is another card, created using some old bits, combined with newer product :). I love the Studio Tekturek papers so much and they work so well together with my older Sassafras stickers! Eek! Two faves together :)!

On the background I have some stamping going on done with black ink. There are again from Stampin´Up!.

And I again managed to sneak in a button from my huge button collection. Gosh, I have so many… And those glass beads, I think I have like a thousand of those too. But they look really pretty on that blue patterned paper.

This is really close to the card style I used to do back in 2009ish. And it´s fun to do cards in that particular style again.

Have a great week! xxx, Sanna

Happy Birthday!

Hello everyone and happy Friday! Today I´m sharing another clean and simple card, but this time combined with products from Studio Tekturek and STAMPlorations.

For the background I again used the newer Studio Tekturek papers and for decor I added the new paper goods by STAMPlorations from their new paper goods line. And in between I´ve added some stamping with black stamp ink.

I also managed to sneak in a few older products *LOL*. See the tiny cloud sticker? It´s by Sassafrass and the button is from my never-ending-button-stash :).

I had fun creating this card. Wishing you a fabulous weekend!!!

Alles Gute!

Hello and happy Wednesday! I used to to this type of cards ALOT when I still did plenty of scrapbook layouts. I loved using graphic patterned paper on the card backgrounds and then adding tiny bits on top with some pattern stamping in black.

So this feels really good again to do this type of cards. And it comes together so naturally still. I´ve used plenty of Studio Tekturek papers and REALLY old glass drops to decorate the card.

The stamping is done using some of my older Stampin´Up! stamp stash. So I managed to sneak in some older product too. The rest is very new Studio Tekturek product :). I just love this type of papers so, so much!

Wishing you all a great mid week!

Travel more – Studio Tekturek

Hello everyone and happy Friday! Today it´s time to share my January Studio Tekturek design team project with you all. I am still totally in love with the Strawberry Shake summer 2020 collection and did a travel themed layout – and a video – with it.

I just love these colours and patterns so much! If you haven´t already, do check out their website for more and support a small, family owned company. Times like these are not easy on any of use – imagine building a business during a pandemic!! Here is the website link and here you can do some direct shopping (or ask your trusted store to order some of their papers).

I´ve used a white cardstock as my starting point and added some spray ink to the background (yellow and blue tones). Next I added a stamped pattern with a map and a light grey stamp ink tone for more interest. After that I drew and fussy cut the alphas and the hearts from the Strawberry Shake collection papers.

So you don´t even need a Cameo/Cricut or similar machine to create this layout. Just simple tool work! After that I fussy cut one journaling card (it had a nice sun on it) and cut the rays „loose“ from the background to make them stand out from the paper. After that I outlined the alphas and hearts with a black pen to give them a little more contrast. Then I just arranged everything and adhered them on place. For additional decor there are some Spiegelmom Scraps sequins as well as a Bramblefox acrylic decor piece on the page. And plenty of Studio Tekturek stickers from the summer collection. I finished the page off with a few black ink splatters and hand written journaling. That´s it!

Here is the step-by-step video – hope you like it, I´m sorry if it´s not perfect, but I just changed the version of my video editing programm and it´s a bit of a learning curve again…Next video will be better again.. sigh!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!!
