A perfect day for discovering

Here is a layout for you today with Tailgate Marked. I have also used my favourite chipboard swirl from Wycinanka and a variety of white ink-it flowers, only I chose not to ink them but to keep them white and add some mica flakes.
 Here's a close-up of the flowers and the chipboard, which I have painted with distress paint in the shade "Pumice Stone", which is such a great match to the Tailgate collection.

Happy scrapping!

The pink castle of Steyr - Austria part 2

Here is the second layout from my Austria travel album. The layout is an 8X8' one, and lucky for me, the Tailgate collection has one paper in it that is of a somewhat different color scheme than the others. It has got purple in it, which made it a perfect match for the photos from the castle wall of Lamberg castle in Steyr. I think the first week of april was early even for the lilacs of Austria, but in the sun just by the castle wall they blossomed, filling the air with their scent.
I have decorated this layout with pink cherry blossoms, tiny little roses and then I've added some mica flakes for a sparkling effect. The little cut out from the Tailgate cut-out sheet says "what a day", and it surely was a perfect day with old and new friends discovering a beautiful town.
 Even the little chipboard birdies got some sparkle. Aren't they cute?
 Happy Scrapping!

Happy birthday *Kort*


Jeg har brugt julepapir til dette fødselsdagskort, jeps julepapir :) A christmas story er en lækker serien hele året rundt :)

Blomsten er en Ink-it blomst og jeg har fjernet støvdragerne og sværtet midten med Distress stain i sølv.  Efter blomsten er tør, har jeg limet en lille plast blomst på og viklet hvid sytråd rund om.

Billedecollage i svæveramme Tailgate Marked

Ann fra Patchworkhuset gav mig en udfordring, hvor jeg skulle bruge Tim Holtz træalfabet
som hun synes var svært at anvende.
Det blev til et "billede" af mig STI, (som man aner i hjørnet)
og med Tailgate som bagrund
Det står nu i butikken på Brøndby Øster Torv og hun forhandler også den flotte serie

På selve lærredet har jeg sværte en stencil
Har brug flere af de fine små tag og citater fra tidligere serie
og de lækre og meget anvendelige Ink It blomster, dog uden ink :)

Som pynt har jeg også anvendt en af de helt 

Ha en dejlig sommerdag

Just around the corner

I live on the countryside near the coast, and there are so many pretty places just around the corner. Here's one just by the sea, and with the coastal feel of Tailgate I'm sure glad I have a bunch of photos like this snapped on my many walks in the neighbourhood.
The netting is a piece of rustic jute ribbon, from which I have pulled a few strands, just to make it look more like a piece of fishing net. I really love how it turned out!
Have a great day!

Austria part 1

I recently went to Austria to visit colleagues at an Austrian school. Of course, the journey was mostly about work, but we still had our fair opportunities to see quite a bit of the surroundings in gorgeous Upper Austria, with a bit of hiking, sightseeing and driving around. We tried the local food (didn't like the sauerkraut very much, the rest I loved!) at the local gasthaus and the local schnaps as well ;-). I dragged my camera along, of course, and I decided to make an 8X8' travel album with some of the photos.

My first layout is of the view I woke up to the first morning, with the morning mist rising from the river Enns deep down in the valley. Can you imagine waking up to this every morning? It's breathtaking, and I spent most of my time there in awe of the mountains.
I've again used the corner swirl from Wycinanka, but I have divided it here to frame the photo a bit differently. I kept the layout fairly simple to keep focus on the photo.
I'll be back later with more layouts for my album.

Happy scrapping!

The sea

Hi guys! It's Summer and holidays, and as I am lucky enough to live very close to the sea (ten minutes walk, close enough to hear the waves on a quiet night) Summer for me means spending a lot of time by the sea. It's not only in this time of year I turn to the sea though.

Sometimes, my life and carreer can be very stressful, just as it is for most people now and then I guess. For me, there is no better way to sort out my mind at those times than just go sit by the shore somewhere, looking out over the sea, gazing at the horizon, letting my mind go blank and just remembering what really matters. I also love taking photos of the coastal surroundings, and since there are such beautiful coastal elements to Tailgate, it's perfect for those photos.
This one is from one of my favourite locations nearby - a little island you can reach via a tiny little bridge. There are a couple of houses on the island, but most of it is just plain wilderness - wind-beaten trees, bushes and rocks. If you are lucky, you get to spot the white-tailed eagle who is supposedly nesting out there somewhere.
I have used some really fabulous chipboard swirls from Wycinanka. I just left them plain, doing nothing with them. Most of the time, that's how I like chipboards the best.

Happy crafting!
