:: Scrapping Ideas ::

I keep coming up with all these great new
ideas for scrap projects and other smart and
fun little things to create, but I keep forgetting
them just as fast. So I thought I would blog this
one, so I can always go back and find it later :)
And maybe give you all some ideas on something
to create.

Okay so first, I want to create a book of ideas,
where I write down all these ideas ;)
I'll cut out great little tricks and tips from
magazines, and ideas for scrap pages, and
recipes etc.

Apple/Cinnamon Cupcakes for my friend,
so she won't have to search no more.
I feel the pressure for them to turn out great
though, so I'll have to think about that one :)

Banana/Chocolate Cupcakes,
sounds yummy!

Well, I think that's it for now :)

:: Go Vintage ::

I've always been inspired by the 50's and
60's fashion. The other day I came across this
really cute website, Mod Cloth, with loads
of cute clothes. Check it out at modcloth.com


:: You're My Cupcake! ::

Decided to bake some more cupcakes
this evening. Apple Cinnamon this time.
Turned out I was out of apples.
And cinnamon.
So instead I baked Strawberry Chocolate.
They turned out quite nice :)


:: So True! ::

My baby got a gift from one of our
friends yesterday. And well, read yourself.
So True! :) Thank you for the cool shirt! :)

:: Thought Of The Day - Birthdays ::

When I was growing up I always hated my
birthday came last of all the members of my
family. I always had to wait for, what seemed
like forever for the big day to finally arrive.
Today I realised, now that I've started
a family of my own, my birthday is
actually first in line! :)

:: I got my baby to sleep!! ::

I know, I know there's really nothing special about
it, but still it is. Every night I feel like a winner when
I at last manage to get him to sleep.
You can tell he's so so tired but he refuses
to sleep anyways :)
I feel like I won the lottery :)

:: Finally! ::

I've been searching forever and today I
finally found them! Easy Mounters by 3L.
They've been out of stock since forever at
my local scrapping store and they don't sell
them at my fave scrap online store.
But today they were finally back in stock!
Woot! :)


:: After Eight Cupcakes ::

Here's the result of the cupcakes I
bakes last night. They turned out quite
yummy. Next I'm gonna bake... hmm..
Chocolate/banana?


:: My Wonderful Boyfriend Got Me... ::

..A little scrapping gift the other day!
It doesn't get better than that.
Really, sc*ew flowers and chocolate!
These wonderful flowers and leaves
by Prima Marketing.They are
simply gorgeous and highquality too!
Thank you baby! <3

:: Pagemaps ::

I often feel the lack of ideas when
I sit down to do paper scrapping.
It's easier for me to feel inspiration whenI scrap digitally.
Probably because it's thatmuch faster and easier.
And if you messup there is always
the undo optionto rely on.

I came up with the ideato try and do some
pagemaps inphotoshop, print em out and then
domy paper scrapping. So while I was at itI
thought I might as well share em with ya'll.
Click on the images for a larger view.
Then simply click save as.
The pagemaps are in the size 8x8 butyou
can always use them 12x12 scrappingas well
since I almost always scrap with smaller photos.

I hope you'll find em useful, more to come!

:: Ma Baker ::

Tonight I finally got around to baking
the cupcakes I've been planning on making
for a while now. I decided to make some
after eight cupcakes (my own recipe)
I hate my oven though, the heat is way
off even though it's brand new.

So it took forever for the cupcakes
to bake. Really annoying!
I made the chocolate cupcakes
and the frosting is cream cheese,
powdered sugar, and white chocolate.
And to top it off, peppermint oil.

I'll keep you posted on how they turn out :)

:: Is it Christmas Already? ::

WOW!
A huge huge wow.
Today I got my order from lifetime moments,
and it's the best one so far.
I didn't really remember what I had ordered since
it takes a while for the order to ship.

Well except forthe scrapbook magazine
Memory Makers, that was the reason
why I ordered in the first place.
I'll post more pics of all the fab things
later when I get around to take
photos of everything.


:: Toys! ::

Yesterday my baby discovered toys.
Now he can't get enough of his baby gym :)
He keeps banging the little toys like
crazy, it looks painful really for his tiny
little hands, but he doesn't seem to mind.
Anyways we're super proud :)

:: Get Inspired ::

I picked up a copy of Elle today.
A really big 600+ pages isssue.
Woot! :) Lots of fashion and inspiration
for scrapping. I love to look at all the different
color combinations etc and get inspiration
for various scrap projects.

The trends I'm seeing in this issue is
a lot of black and white with only a few
details in color. Red seems to be extra
popular with the b&w.

I'm already working on a card copying
one of the ads in the magazine.
The truth is the fashion magazines
are so much more than just the articles.

I have a confession;
I mainly buy Elle for the ads.
I actually framed a few of them a few
years ago, they made great
contemporary art.


:: It's Cupcake Time! ::

Got so inspired by all the cupcakes I see
everywhere that I decided that I wanted
to make some myself. I went to the
supermarket today and bought some
heartshaped sprinkles and some silver
as well. Well that was the easy part.
Now for the baking part..
I'll keep you update ;)


:: Scraptime ::

Since I got my iPhone I've been browsing the
itunes store for podcasts and different apps
to pimp my phone with.

I came across this one podcast called Scraptime.
It's basically short little instruction videos
showing you different techniques you can
scrap with.

And the best thing is you don't
need to buy an iphone or ipod, you can simply
browse to the Scraptime website and watch
the videos there!



:: 15% off at lifetime moments! ::

So what's a girl to do?
Obviously I just had to place an order!
I mean 15% off, come on :)
Too bad my boyfriend is reading my blog
though, oh and that he accidentally just
sneaked a peek over my shoulder and read
that. Oh well now he's free to spend like 30
bucks however he pleases ;)

I got really inspired by that
cupcake mini book class they were
holding over at the LM message board
so I decided to buy my own chipboard
mini album and try it.

That also got me in the baking mood,
especially since I found this really
cool blog called Dear Martha yesterday
with all sorts of wonderful cupcake recipes.
I didn't bake anything since I was pregnant
though with the exception of an apple
pie so I don't know if I'll just focus on
the cupcake album instead :)

I also got me some Christmas stickers,
some great 4 yard ribbons by american crafts,
I'm a big fan of their high quality products,
and they were all really cheap, $1/4 yards.
Minus the 15% of course ;)

Can't wait for the postman to bring
me…

:: The Dollarstore ::

I love going to the dollarstore.
Not just for the bargains but also for
all the funny, weird, ugly and
awesome things you can find there.


:: My Scrapping Candy ::

Found these awesome little various
goodiesat the dollarstore today.
I'm gonna use the pinkrhinestones
for a new years layoutI'm working on at the moment.
It's funny I was just thinking yesterdaythat I
needed to go buy something for that finishing touch.
I didn't think I'dfind it at the dollarstore though :)

I'm gonna be using the letter cubesfor baby
themed layouts and cards.
My sister had a little girl a few weeksago and
I'm gonna start scrapping some layouts with
the photos she sentme. So the pink boxes are perfect!

All these goodies for as little as$7,44.
Pretty okay pricetag.

:: When The Weather Turns Cold ::

When the weather turns cold the leaves turn gold.
Found that little saying on my sons
Winnie the Poohjackets and I think it's just lovely :)
Went for a little walk today and here are somepics
I shot with my iPhone.They're quite good concidering
it's only a2 megapixel camera.
