Busy bee

That's me. I can't believe how fast the weeks are flying by. Only 5 more before me and Tova goes to Sweden! Outrageous!

So, thank you all for your advise on my Dymo refills. I'd already tried the NZ shops you suggested, with no luck. So I might have to take up 
Anna's offer to get me some and send over. (She's married to a kiwi, so I trust her!:))

Anyway - what have I been doing? Apart from the usual stuff? Apart from my dear girl never getting over the flu? Well, wer'e selling the house, so that takes up most of my time. Mentally and physically... Lucky me for working in a scrapbooking shop, so that I can play while working! This is my LO for Scrapbooker's Delight's latest challenge. Get over to the blog to check the challenge out! You can win cool stuff!!!

I've used BG's "sugared" range on this LO. (Megan - please notice the photo corners!!!)


And here's another PINK LO that I did for a challenge over at Scrap With V. I can show you more stuff that I have done for them - tomorrow... :) That's when the new kits go up on the site! So exciting!!


Hmmm. Seems I'm in a PINK period...


My bed is calling my name now, but I'll try to post some more tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by!!!

Dymo problem

So I've looked EVERYWHERE for refills to my old fashion dymo, with no luck... Where in Gods name do you get them??? At the shop Spotlight they looked at me funny and said - Dymo? What's that?


So - help please! In whatever country you are in, can you tell me where I get refills for my dymo?


W as in Wicked Wednesday

Don't know what to say about my title. It's just a title I guess...

My brain is on vacation I think!

Anyway, the new challenge is up on the
Scrapbooker's Delight blog. JOIN US!!! This is my example:


Hmmm... What else have I done... It's amazing that I have had time to scrap actually, but I guess that is what keeps me sane in my chaotic life! :)



(title says "Tova loves books")

That's about it for now. Thanks for telling me you've been here for a visit!!!

I should really be in bed...

I have a fever and can feel a migrain coming, so I should really go to bed... I just know that the next couple of days are going to be frantic, so I wanted to finish off some LO's and post them. So here they are... :)

always on the run



Is it really Wednesday again?

So this is how all you REAL grown ups live your lives... :) Work, daycare, sick kids, doctors visits, swim school, selling and buying houses, renovating, dishes, washing, cleaning, and then... scrapping! Socialising? NO WAY!!!

Yep. I'm quite busy at the moment!


But anyway...

I have been scrapping from time to time, but not much I can show you - yet. Patience please... I would be VERY happy though, if you clicked over to
Scrapbooker's Delight's blog and checked out my new challenge. There is nice stuff to win, so tag along!!!

This is my LO for this weeks challenge, with the new GORGEOUS Prima Marketing range:


Bye for now! Thank you for leaving a comment before you leave!                                              

It's Monday!

What more can I say? Almost Wednesday - but you've still got time to get your contribution in for the challenge over at Scrapbooker's Delight!


Remember that if your name get's drawn we will send you some scrapping goodies - wherever you live in the world!!

OK, so I've done some scrapping the last few days. Nothing unusual for me... :) But, the unusual thing for me is that I don't feel happy with what I have created. I am happy that I have got another LO done, but not necessarily about how the end result looks. Don't have a clue why...

Well, these are my latest creations anyway:

This title says "It's lucky we've got grandma"


The next two was created for the "Technique Monday" post on Scrap With V's blog. I've done a 3D effect with the photos. Pop over to the blog and read more if you'r einterested in how I did it! :)


so serious

Thats it for today. See you soon!!!!!!

Wednesday fun!

I am very excited about what's going on @ the Scrapbooker's Delight blog tonight... :) It doesn't matter where you live in the world - pop in and have a look. It would make me veeeeeeery happy!!!


Oh - you're back?! Cool, isn't it?


Well, I can't leave you without pics, so here's one of my latest LO (morfar means granddad), and also a few CARDS! I know - it's been a while since I sat down and made cards! But one of my lovely sisters ordered some, so that was a great reason to make some!


Bad day

I had a bad day at work today. One of my customers was really rude, and made ME feel bad. That just ruined my whole day.

I got to play around with new products from Heidi Swapp, but not even that made me feel better.

Stupid lady...

Anyway. Time to get over it!

I'd like to show you the LO's I've been making for
Scrapbooker's Delight. It's a challenge scrapping someone else's photos - that's for sure, or scrapping without photos even!!! But using new products helps of course...

The first two LO's can sit together or seperately in an album. Everything comes from Fancy Pants new YUMMY range - (apart from the bazill photomat, and the kindy glitz on the clear letters on the second LO). The papers are JUST gorgeous, there is a massive range of clear stamps, clear letters and clear "chipboard", there are overlays, ribbons, die-cuts and felt and... It's just amazing!!!



Details (click to enlarge)


And - TADAAAAAAAA - my first ever BOY layout!!!  :) This is also from the new Fancy Pants range. Aren't the papers just fabulous??


Today I got to play with the new Heidi Swapp papers and overlays. I made a double LO, but didn't get a photo of both sides together. Just imagine the biiiiiiiig butterfly will ya... :)



The extra's on these are BG rub-ons and letter stickers, bazill CS and Bo Bunny rub-ons.

I am such a lucky girl getting to play at my work!!!

Make sure to pop into Scrapbooker's Delight's blog tommorrow. Exciting stuff happening...

CC LO's and more

I'm feeling terrible at the moment, the flu has hit me hard. But I'm sure I'll survive like all the other times the flu has come for a visit!!!


The CC over at
SWV was a success as usual, and I got all challenges but one done. Am happy with that, considering I wasn't feeling the best. These are the LO's I created for the CC:

For the sketch challenge;

Jul 2007

(the title say's "Christmas 2007")

For a challenge called "I love to..." with the criteria to use at least 2 patterned pp's. The LO had to be about something apart from scrapping that you love to do;

I love to discover NZ

For the DT only challenge. It had to be a 6x12 LO (this is my first!!!), there had to be stamping on it, and the subject was "My dream holiday destination";

let's go around the world on a bike

And today I have posted a new challenge in the SWV forum, a scraplift challenge. You are to scraplift this fantastic LO from the amazing Swedish lady AnnaB:


(the title says "focus")

This is my take:


(the title says "beautiful")

Would be great to see your take on Anna's LO, you have 'til April 30th to post it in the SWV gallery!

I've actually got a lot more to share, but this is already a very long post, so I'll wait 'til tomorrow!

Have a great Monday!

We have a winner!

You ladies have made me laugh these last few days, some WILD guesses going on! I know I've been pretty active the last few months, but... No. I have not done nearly 500 12x12 LO's the last two years. Up to the date my competition was posted I had done.....
248 12x12 LO's!

The person who came closest guessed 241, and that person is my dutch "name twin"

I will email you to sort out what kind of goodies worth 40NZD (20EUR) from Scrapbookers Delight you would like!!!

Thanks to everyone else for participating! Keep your eyes open for more chances to win stuff very soon...

Cyber crop have started

Well, we have just started the CC over at Scrap with V. I have set the first challenge, and here are my examples:

I also want to share with you that I did my VERY FIRST BOY LO today! I was lucky enough to SCRAP ALL DAY at work. Will possibly put that up later on tonight!



A short post tonight, my head is spinning from all the stocktaking I've been doing at my new job @ Scrapbookers Delight!


Just wanted to let you all know that this weekend it's time for a cyber crop over at Scrap With V again! Join us for some fun, with cool prizes to win!!! I've been busy creating LO's for MY challenge. Come and play with me - please!



Also, there are things happening at Scrapbookers Delight. Check out the blog for what's happening over there. I can tell you that from Wednesday next week - I'll be putting something very cool up on the blog. Come on over and have a look! This goes for EVERYONE, wherever you live in the world. Too good to be true maybe, but IT IS TRUE!!!


And you still have time to enter my competition. The winner will be announced on Saturday night - when the Friday will be over in most countries...

Goodness me I'm soooooooo international...

See ya!

Blog breakdown

It's not an April fool's day prank - the blog service have been shut down for a few days. But now we're back!


So - I hope that the visitors who came for my  competition - who couldn't comment' - will come back and try again! I will let the competition go for another couple of days ('til Friday) so that more people have a chance to grab the price!


Thanks to all of you who have already participated. There's quite a difference in your guesses... Anneli from the Netherlands has even gone back and counted my LO's on the blog!!!! The question is though - have I published them all...?


Today is the day when the April Class Kits have gone up on the
Scrap With V site! Very exciting! This is one of mine that you can purchase!

Beach memories

Beach memories open

I've also taken part in a few of the monthly challenges over at SWV, but I did them without my otherwise so present mojo. The first one is for a black/white and green challenge, the second one for a challenge where you could only "spend" $5 on your LO.



I think my mojo might be back now though... After spending a couple of days at my new job at Scrapbookers Delight, I feel inspired!!!

See you again Friday!!
