This template includes room for up to four photos and plenty of space for you to add your journaling. The template features a subtle background brush, a beautiful ribbon element, and a screwed tag. The Quick Page features papers from the Mandarin Breeze Paper Pack.

Remember that there is a sale going on so if you get the template now you get 20% off!

Then, I am über excited about Friday! OK, so Fridays are usually pretty awesome as it is, but this coming Friday I will have a project for Hybrid Project Friday and I am totally smitten with this project. Do stop back by the end of the week to find out what it is! Woot!
 
Until then, I might be a little scarse around here. The end of the year is always quite intense at my day job and so I have a lot of business trips due to it. This week is no different. So if I don't stop by during the week, don't worry too much about me. :)
 
Love to you all!

New in store - Frostbite

I have winter on my brain. So much so that I have created a new paper pack  inspired by icy and frosty weather. With icy blue hues and a combination of subtle classic patterns and snowflake patterns these papers will be perfect for those snow day layouts.

Diaper cake yumminess

I made a diaper cake for my sister and BIL and brought it to the hospital when we went to see little Wilmer. Gosh it was heavy to log around, lol!

It was surprisingly easy to make, just a little time consuming rolling all those diapers. I really like how it turned out. Now I kind of just want more kidlets to come along so I can do more of them! Hee!





For those of you who don't know, a diaper cake is made of rolled up diapers and is covered by baby blankets. I used fleece ones that were so soft and had cute little animals printed on them. I also wrapped each tier in a ribbon; for prettiness and for holding the blankets in place.

The great thing about the diaper cake is that it's 100% usable. The diapers are obvious, lol, and the blankets can be used for both naptimes and playtime for the baby. There is also a small treat for the parents in the middle once all the diapers are gone!

Cuteness overload on P52

It's been a pretty eventful week; Lady Gaga in concert yesterday (no camera though, boo hoo), anniversary on Wednesday, and a new family member arrived early Wednesday morning. My sister gave birth to a baby boy called Wilmer.

We got the chance to see him briefly on Thursday in the corridor of the hospital and we all fell instantly in love with the little guy. I mean how could you not? Just look!

I will be back tomorrow with pics of a little something I made for the new parents!

A celebratory P52

It's been exactly one week since the team of my heart became Swedish champions. I was there and what a party it was! Those of you who have followed the P52 series this year know that I've done a few football related weeks already. But how can you pass up the winning week? So with that in mind, I've got two more!

#44, 2010
After the game a lot of the supporters stormed the pitch to be close to the boys as they recieved the trophy. We were too high up to be among them but it meant I got some pretty good pics of the storming and the crowds. The team is at the bottom left in blue shirts and golden helmets with the captain swinging the trophy.


#45,2010
The day after our city hosted a public celebration at a square in town and we were right up at the front by the stage. The guys were still as extatic as the day before when they won. I love the expression in this one! Go Guillermo!

Myself, I've spent the major part of last nigth and today working on a project that is a little different than what I've released before over at JessicaSprague.com. My hope is that I can have it finished very soon. I'm very excited about this project!

New in store - Sassy Season

It's drawing closer to what is according to me the high point of the year; Christmas! And what better way to get in gear than to bring in some delish winter themed papers and elements? Right, so my two new items in the shop over at JessicaSprague.com is just that. Woohoo!

I wanted to do something different with my winter kit this time round. I wanted to stay away from the reds and greens which are so frequently used but still have a festive and fun feel. I really like the finished products.

Sassy Season Paper Pack
Sassy Season

In this paper pack you get 24 papers; five solids, three multi colour patterned, and 16 patterened papers in the four colours of the scheme.
