It’s not that layouts and cards are the boring stuff… but I’ve always been a sucker for altered projects and stuff. I haven’t done that many this year, still I thought it impossible to just pick three. So here are… four.
Altered wine holder
I altered this wine holder for my sister’s 10th anniversary. It was SOOO much fun to make. We had just released the very limited Sofiero collection and we were still not aware of the massive positive response we got from it. It turned out to be a huge hit and for the first time I found myself running out of papers with no possibility to get more! I was just as panicked as everybody else, I can assure you that.
I was so anxious to get my hands on Vintage Autumn Basics when it was released it was unbelievable. I drove to the office Friday night just to get some sheets that were picked up just to satisfy my greedy hands.
They were so fresh I had a heavy stink of paint in my livingroom that evening. I had promised Marie to let them dry, but 7 AM Saturday morning I was already out of five different papers, even though I had grabbed three of each.
This hot air balloon was my first creation.
I created this baby album for Joel. It includes his first months with journaling and photos. Since he is an autumn boy it’s all made with autumn colours. If you read the posting you can see the pages within. I’m still using it and documenting his life.
I’ve had this ATC tray for years. I bought it with our wedding in mind, but I just couldn’t find any suitable papers for it. When Vintage Autumn Basics was released I knew what papers to use. So my wedding tray turned out to be… pink! Mark my words, I was shocked myself. 😉 But I actually like how it turned out.
So. This concludes this year. I am so grateful and proud that my very faithful readers have stayed with me this year. I know I haven’t been around as much as I usually am due to several hospital treatments and a painful pregnancy. I am very touched that you, and many newcomers, have chosen to stick around and shared this year with me. I wish you all the best and a very happy new year.
