Another year has passed and it’s time for me to present some of my favourites from 2014. As usual I divide them into three different categories… Layouts, cards and then all the other projects. So here are my five favourite layouts from 2014…
Joel was very sick during his first months. We spent countless hours in hospital and he was just fading away. He was so thin I could barely touch him, feeling every bone in his tiny body. Still he remained so happy and continued smiling. This photo was shot when he was at his worst, still so brave and strong.
I used the wonderful blue colours of Vintage Spring Basics and really liked working on this layout. It kind of created itself. I used this layout to present him on the Maja blog as the new crew member.From Paris with love
The Nyhavn collection was recently released and I fell in love with all the strong colours at once. (More creations of mine are coming up regarding Nyhavn.) Still it remains vintage and romantic. And what could be more romantic then a trip to Paris. I shot this photo in Montmartre when we celebrated our anniversary there a couple of years ago.
I used my favourite flowers and embellies and I like that the warmth of the hot summerday shines through.
Who can sail without the wind
This layout was created for the March Mood Board at Maja. Marie had chosen the ultradepressing song Who Can Sail Without The Wind for the Mood Board and I guess it kind of freaked some of the girls out when they got the text translated. Ha ha! But I hope I nailed it with this layout. Beautiful, but thoughtful…
If I had to pick one favourite from 2014, this one would be it. I loved to work with the PanPastels on the background, all the stamps and details. I shot this photo by the castle of Läckö three years ago. I wasn’t really in the mood that day and thought that the trip would cheer me up. It didn’t. But I had a really good creative flow when I did this layout years later on and it felt pretty much like therapy.
My cup of tea
Ok, so this layout probably share the first place among my favs. I’m a blue girl and I jumped up and down when Coffee In The Arbour was released. It fitted me perfectly. Suddenly there were cupcakes all over the house and I drank even more coffee, like that would be possible. This layout was also very easily made. The creative flow was so good and I think I pretty much did the whole thing in an hour or two.
I had the honour of meeting my lovely scrap friend Elena Olinevich in August. When she returned home she created the most fantastic layout inspired by my white house and Joel. I just loved that one the minute she showed it to me. I didn’t even know she was inspired by my house, but maybe that’s why I loved it so much.
Anyways. She got me inspired to do something similar and this is what I came up with.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my little trip down memory lane. Next time I will show you my 2014 card favourites. I think I had a pretty good card year so it will not be easy to pick favourites this time.
