Veckans skiss #209

Hej hopp!
Det var länge sedan jag gjorde ett blogginlägg på svenska, så nu var det dags!
Jag har länge sneglat på "Veckans skiss", men inte riktigt kommit till skott - men nu kom jag ihåg det!
Denna vecka ser den ut såhär:

Den skulle vara utmärkt till ett kort tror jag, men jag valde att göra en LO (vilken surprise va?):

Precis som många andra har vi fått otroligt mycket äpplen i år så jag ville ha en sida med fokus på våra fina äpplen. De är perfekta till äppelpaj, mos och bullbak - mums! 

För att göra min LO använde jag det här digitala kitet av Ooh La La Designs, Gingerscraps:

Det finns massor med fina bilder i kitet som jag funderar på att skriva ut och använda i mitt vanliga papperscrappande. Dessutom finns det jättefina journaling cards till PL eller liknande:

Ha det gott allesammans!
Kram, Carina

CSI Casefile #262

It´s time for the mid monthly challenge over at CSI and I am late with posting here. I've got the flu and a bad cold at the same time so my apologies for being late here.

This is the casefile:

As always you can either do your free interpretation OR you can use the clues provided at the CSI posting. I made my own and came up with this layout:

This casefile immediately got me thinking about our kitty that passed away at the beginning of this year. We had her for a little more than 13 years so she sure got a big place in all our hearts. I also picked up some of the colors from the inspiration picture - and flowers of course! Who doesn't love flowers?

To make my layout I used some gorgeous stuff from Aimee Harrison Designs over at Gingerscraps:

So RUN over to CSI and solve this case too - love to see what you make!

Hugs, Carina

CSI Casefile No.261

Hi everyone!
I am back with a new post about the new challenge over at CSI:

I was a bit in a hurry to make it this time and totally forgot to mention how I solved the case over at CSI main page so I am gonna do it here instead:

It was almost like the inspiration picture was a copy of my workspace in my craft room so it was a no brainer when it comes to inspiration. It also reminded me how long it has been that I actually MADE anything down there - shame on me! 

I actually have a gorgeous craft room but somehow I never make it that far during the weeks (or weekends either btw).  I need to change that - lucky autumn is coming, right?

The kit I used was designed by Dawn Inskip over at The Lily-pad, but it is not available any longer. Her store is closed now, since she passed away two months ago. I will really miss her wonderful designs and she was such a sweet person in the Lily-Pad community. 

But you can still join the fun challenge over at CSI! Just click HERE to find all the details - and good luck!

Hugs, Carina

....another one opens - Part II

So I am back again with my part II of this crazy, wonderful whirlwind of things that happened after The Digichick closed. And guess what? I found a new place to call home again! Or actually it chose me - I cannot believe that I was offered a spot at.....

So now I am officially a GingerBread Girl and it feels awesome!!! Now I just have to settle in and learn the ropes but I already done some work for them. Let's start with "The Monthly Mix":

I would absolutely love to visit a real American diner someday - but this kit works perfect with other photos too. Here's my layout using this wonderful collab:

Next up is a layout made with two items from August 2018 Buffet:

...and my layout:

Can you believe my luck to be able to create with so much gorgeous stuff???

There are also a ton of fun and inspiring challenges going on at Gingerscraps and I only made one this far. The signature challenge was calling my name since I really needed one and the challenge had a fun twist. You had to pic one of the "holidays" from this calendar:

I gotta admit that I was tempted to go for the Frankenstein Day or Dog Day, but I ended up with Book Lover´s Day - I just love to read!

I used some wonderful stuff that I already have from Aimee Harrison:

Thinking about it, I am still tempted to do a Frankenstein signature....Wouldn´t it be fun?

That's it folks! All cats are out of the bag, I have spilled the beans...I feel so overwhelmed and HAPPY about ALL of this!!!

Wishing you all a very nice Friday and weekend! Can't promise I won't be back earlier though...

Hugs, Carina
