It that time of the week.... to show you my example for http://www.practicalscrappers.com/ this week it´s about stamping, and I made this lo using Heidi Swapp´s Masking and stamping technique. I´ve used several of my favorite stamps to make the frame to the photo.
I love this charming photo of ds#2, he´s on the way to a birthday party and I asked him to smile at me to take a photo before he left... I adore this kid! He´s the cutest!
Thanks for stopping by! /Pia

BTW!! Next week, the NEW format of Practical Scrappers will be released! Hope to see you there!!


Jag är lycklig!!

Den här serien damp ner i min brevlåda idag... eller förresten jag hämtade den på Ica, men ändå!! :)))))
Jag hoppas jag får mycket tid i helgen att göra nya lo´s med denna serie. Kom tillbaka imorgon, då kommer mitt exempel för PracticalScrappers.com som i veckan har tema "Stämplar".


Ribbon-time at PS!

This week I made a lo of our trip to Legoland in 2009. I used the VERY girly pp´s "Sugarrush" from Basic Grey and added a shark picture! LOL! I think it really works! :)
The ribbon is adhered with double sided tape and pleated when I attached it to the layout! A lot of handdrawn doodles again, of course!

Thanks for stopping by! And if you make a lo or another project with ribbons this week - link it HERE!!


Friday Sketch - a little bit late!

Here´s my take on PS Friday sketch, made by me this week! I´ve altered the sketch a bit and used clouds instead of flowers. But that´s the fun with sketches, to make your own intepretation of it! Thanks for looking!! XXX Pia


Practical Scrappers challenge - Buttons!

It´s time for this week´s challenge at Practical Scrappers - and you can dig through your button stash and make something wonderful!! Link it up HERE!!

I made this birthday card for my Brother in Law. The background is stamped, distressed with gesso and then stamped with 3 different stamps traditionally. The buttons are from Autumn Leaves "Bag-O´Buttons" clear buttons and I´ve added some doodles in the background too!

I hope to see your beautiful work featured on http://www.practicalscrappers.com/
