The weather here is really HOT in Sweden which is +31C (87.8F), and that means going to the lake MANY times!
Today DH and I went to Hjo for some sunbathing and since it´s so hot we had a go for some bathing in lake Vättern which was freezing cold! For you not living in Sweden, Vättern is Sweden´s second largest lake, very deep and well-knowned to be very cold. I swear I couldn´t feel my feet after just a few seconds! It was probably no more than 15-16 degrees (59 degrees F) in the water….
Luckily it´s getting a little cloudy and cooler now in the evening and the plants wouldn´t say no to a little rain….
Now on to the scrapping stuff!!!
I got a new gorgeous kit from Graham Like the Cracker to work with called Drift Away + some extra stuff:
I made these two:
As you might have read before I´m guest hybrid ct at ScrapMatters this month and when I saw this awesome kit from Jennifer Barrette I knew exactly what I wanted to do:
So what did I do? A little mini-book about my 5 fav authors!
Here´s my little guide to this project:
First off I needed some cardboard as a base for the pages so I decided to reuse a box we had at home – love the idea of reuse & recycle…..
For you living in Sweden I think you can all see what this is (and probably others too)… ;) So save your boxes!!!!
I took one of the sides and cut it into squares sized 8x9 cm (3.14x3.54 inch) and punched holes in one side:
Then I covered one side with a brown cardstock paper from Bazzill.
Next step was to create the pages in my computer using the Summer Reading kit. I print on matte photo paper for my writer which is a Canon.
This is what I got now:
Now comes the fun part which is getting it all together! So out with scissors, glue, stamps,distress ink and embies…..
Here are all the pages + front when they´re finished:
All I had to do now was to assemble the album with some nice ribbons et voilá:
So don´t discart your old stuff – reuse and recycle!
Now I have two NEW kits waiting for me from Erica Zane and Mari Koegelenberg – lovely!!!!
I´m leaving you all with a pic of my chocolate chip muffins I made the other day….
