Soon there!

Good morning!
It is Friday! Yesterday evening I took care of the pile of finished layouts on the shelf, dated them and put them in page protectors. I wish I could say that I put them in my album but I can't since my albums are full! I wil buy new ones when I'm at that particular store. Until then I'll store my layouts in page protectors in my cabinet.

When I was done with that I sat for a long time staring at a set of green Thickers with very few letters left. I liked the color and I hoped to find enough numbers to be able tp write a date but I had no 2's! This is why I really hate Thickers and alphastickers. It isn't that I don't like to use them, I just wish I could use them all and don't get random ones left. It pains me to see them go to waste. I don't buy alot of Thickers because of this, it is almost impossible to find them here below 48 SEK (approx. US$ 6.75) and that is too expensive in my book.

When I had been meditating for a long time I decided to go creative with the Thickers and spell my daughter's name. I added my journaling on one of those sheers that I had in my stash, they looked really cool when they were new but I seldom use them and they aren't very cool... but hey, you need to use what you've bought - at least some of it...

After I added my titel, my journaling and some embellishments (pearls & pins) and now I have this empty space above the "j" and it is ALL I see when I look at the page. I'll have to get rid of that before I can say I'm completly done.

Then I made a journaling page about a song we've been singing here at home for quite some time. I love these photos! My daughter has her gingerbread dress & cap on and I thought that fitted perfectly with the title!   


I had one more layout planned in my cabinet and I took out the papers and photos and started experimenting. I adore this background paper from the Postale collection from 7 Gypsies. I used some oooold grunge board hearts which I colored with fluid chalk and I layered a couple of other papers behind the photos. I will work some more with this one and add some clusters.


Btw, have you seen the new stamps from Evalicious!?! I LOVE them!!

Have a lovely day! Hugs!

  1. Love the lace on your first layout and the stitching on the second. Truly all great inspiration! And yes, I have most of the Evalicious stamps. LOVE them and I use them a lot even to make my own flair buttons. :) Have a blessed day!

  2. Beautiful layouts and I love Evalicious :-)

  3. Oh, your family is beautiful! I feel the same way about Thickers - I love the way they look but I never have the right color or type. I have a Cameo so I frequently cut my own. You've been very prolific, I wish I could scrap so much!
