Old and new layout

Made this page for my FIL. He already had a framed layout on his wall which I made when I just started scrapping. Thought it was time to make him a new one with his favorite colors.
The gorgeous mailbox is one of the new releases from Dusty Attic.

Isn't it fun to see the old page?!!
When I first started scrapping, I always used a patterned paper for my background and kept it simple.
Now I always scrap on a white page and love to use glimmermist, paint, gesso or stamps on the background. With all the gorgeous embellies on the market, I find myself adding more and more!!LOL!
Here you can see the old page from 2007. The girls with their grandfather and a photo of hubby and me.

And here are the details from the new family page:

Have a great and scrappy day!

Hi all!
Today I want to share a layout made with one of the new releases from Dusty Attic. 
Just love this dress form!
Photo is of Tessa, my 'little' angel. 

Misted the background and stitched the little circles. 
The lace for the dress form was cut out of a legging.
The word 'angelic' is also from DA.
Had a lot of fun making this page!

And some details:

Just love to add some metal charms on my pages!
I have a box to store my metal embellishments and it really is my little treasure box!

Isn't that little clothing hanger the cutest?!!!! 

Punched the butterflies out of the Prima papers.

I only added some glitter to the DA dress form.

And finally: no angel without her wings.
Didn't have real wings, but these Prima corners also works for me!

Also another card:

I'm trying to make at least one card when I finished a page.
I found it very handy to keep up my stock of cards. 
For this one I used the new mini scrolls from Dusty Attic.
The metal 'get well soon' was found at a local home decor store.

That's it for today.
Wishing you all a wonderful and scrappy weekend!!

Blog award!

How nice to start the day with an award...thank you so much Misty who gave me the Liebster blog award today!

"Liebster” is a German word meaning dearest, beloved or favorite, and the Liebster Award is sort of a chain letter among bloggers that’s intended to showcase exceptional up-and-coming blogs (typically, those with 200 or fewer followers). There’s no evaluation committee or formal award process for the Liebster, but in a way it’s even nicer – it’s recognition that a peer has noticed and appreciated your hard work.

Here are the rules:

Choose 5 up and coming blogs of fewer than 200 followers to award the Liebster to.

Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.

Post the award on your blog. Link back to the blogs you have given the Liebster to so everyone else can pay them a visit.

And, now I am sharing and passing on the award to five wonderful blogs that I'm sure you will want to stop by for a visit...

Astrid                   http://bearfamilysscraps.blogspot.com/
Corina                  http://cvanholstein.blogspot.com/
Carla                    http://carliesscraplife.blogspot.com/                     
Susan                   http://sussipoppins.blogspot.com/

There are many many more fantastic scrapbooking blogs I follow that deserve an award, but alas, I must follow the rules!

And now I shall go shopping for a sparkly gown and tiara....to wear at the Liebster Award Ceremony :)  Look out red carpet...here I COME!

Today a layout from my oldest daughter Tessa who recently turned 21.
 Oh my....21 already..I'm getting old!LOL!!! Tomorrow is the big party!

And some details:

For the background I used some gesso, mixed with some embossing powder. 
This created a lovely sandy effect.
The gesso and powder dries very quickly so no need to wait very long to begin with the page.

Crocheted the flowers. For the little ones I used baker's twine from Seweasy.
The scroll is from Dusty attic.
Papers are from Pion ( just love these papers!).
Corners, shutter and the tulle flowers are from Prima.

This detail actually inspired me to make these two cards:

That's it for today.
Have a lot to do before tomorrow!
Party time!!!!!!

Have a super weekend!
Hugs, Ingrid
