Lycka

Spread your wings and soar

This is a happy photo of my dear son. It's very important for me that my children are happy. I really want them to spread their wings and soar.

Sol

Summer is my favourite season. Not only because of the sun and the warmth, but most of all because I get to spend so much time with my family and friends. This layout is made for this month's challenge at Once Upon A Sketch.




Theme: Season (Summer, Autumn, Winter, Spring)
We would like you to create a layout and interpret the theme "Season" however you like based on the following sketch. You can journal as little or as much as you like, but your layout must incorporate this theme and the sketch below. Please make sure that we see some sort of journalling on your layouts and please tell us where your journalling is . Hidden journalling is perfectly fine.

Ideas for journalling: current season in your part of the world, favourite season, seasonal traditions on your part of the word, a childhood memory, a summer romance, what summer/autumn/winter/spring brings for you, baby it's cold outside, summer loving, spring is in the air, autumn breeze, summer holidays, seasonal changes, etc etc. Anything goes ..

I love playing with Prima products. Here is another layout I made as their guest designer in August.

Almanac Collection: Composition #844097

For Glitz in August

Hi all! Camilla here today with two layouts made for the Glitz blog. The first one is made with the Happy Travels collection, perfect for soft boyish layouts - the blue and beige looks awesome together. The title "I carry your heart with me" is from one of the cardstock stickers. I cut the edges to make it a banner. I dabbed a bit of gesso on the papers to make them a bit white washed.



"I carry your heart with me" by Camilla Ekman:
Happy Travels papers: Floral, Stripe, Planes
Happy Travels Cardstock Stickers Titles
Happy Travels Glitzers
Other: flowers and bling (Prima), lace, ribbon, pin

The next layout is made with the Pretty in Pink collection - soft pink papers but a bit edgy with the black. I made a girlish page for my daughter. A bit of paper tearing and a bit of gesso added.



"You look lovely today" by Camilla Ekman:
Pretty in Pink papers: Ledger, Polka
Pretty in Pink Paper Layers
Pretty in Pink Peek-A-Boo
Other: Doily, mask, gesso, flowers, vine, floss, rhinestones

Guest Designing for Prima Part 1

I am so excited to be Prima's Guest Designer in August. My first project is this one:

The August sketch was a bit different to how I usually scrap, but I tried to make it my style. Some people think you cannot use flowers on boy's layouts. I say you can, otherwise my boy wouldn't have any pages in his scrapbook albums. LOL I combined the soft colours in the Nature Garden papers with more colourful flowers, but kept the center flower earthly to match the colour of the alphabet.


Supplies:
Papers:
Nature Garden Collection "Pixie" #950026
Nature Garden Collection "Midsummer's Eve" #950064
Shabby Chic Treasures Metal #890865
Alphabet Stickers #544249
Say It In Pearls #554163
Flowers:
Tuscany #543952

Other: border punches, paper clips, gesso
