Nostalgic Collage

Here are two collaged booklets, nostalgic style.
They are about the size of an ATC and each
page is a tiny bit bigger than the one on top of
it, so you get a nice layered look.

The first one i made with stamps by Rivercity Rubberworks.

The second on with stamps by Stampers Anonymous.

ATC's : Dream Big and For-Your-Eyes-Only with T!m stamps

I like to experiment with colours when it comes
to ATC's. I like to see how they look very much
the same yet so different. These ATC's i made
earlier, using some really nice stamps from amongst
others Tim Holtz. I hope to do more stamping with
these stamps, because i really like them.

ATC's : Paris

Some more Old-School ATC's, this time with
my favorite theme, Paris. Used the Casablanca
sheet from Oxford Impressions for these, and
a stamp from Inkadinkado.

vrijdag 24 juni 2011


Today is midsummer and in Norway that is celebrated on
the evening before midsummersday. Everyone is meeting
outside to grill and attend the bonfire.

There are bonfires everywhere and we were able to see
bonfires all round "our" lake. Sadly, the weather was not
optimal, to say the least. It was cold and windy and by
the time whe lit the bonfire it started to rain cats and dogs.

But, we had a lovely time anyway.
