:: Reasons to love hybrid.. ::

I am a hybrid scrapper as most of
you already know, and I just love how
easy it is to make new embellishments
when you run out.

You simply drag and
drop the digital goodies you want on to
an empty printer sized document,
crop, change colors, resize etc etc
and print! Could not be easier
and you save tons on money
when you only need to buy
the embellishments once.

The best thing for me is that I get
to use my favorite things over and over
and over again ♥♥♥

Remember that even if you see
yourself simply as a paper artist
you can always have a sneek peak at
the huge amount of free and pay for
goodies that are available online,
you might be surprised!

A great way to get started is to check
out the best digi free finds site there is
Scrapping with IKEA Goddess,
she has a way of tracking down the best
free kits available on the web!

:: Summer is here! ::

quality time with my family ♥

:: Template - 4 photo split ::

Hi all!
Today I want to share this fun
4 photo template.


You could use the photo space to fill it
in with paper if you want to use less than 4 photos,
OR you could fill the left big paper space with
an extra photo and make it a 5 photo
layout. Experiment and have fun,
and as always I would love to see
the results!

You can e-mail me
at the80sme@gmail.com if you
like to show me your work or
talk to me about something else.

:: Welcome to my new blog! ::

If you read my previous post you know I'm

The new blog is in swedish but my
foreign readers can simply click on
the translate button in the top left

:: I'm so Excited! ::

And I just can't hide it!
That's why I'm sharing these news now :)
I'm working on a new blog, a sister blog
to this one. I miss writing in Swedish,
but at the same time I'm loving all the
foreign visitors I get to this blog.

The new blog is going to focus more on
my paper scrap, my everyday life,
yummy recipes and hopefully some
clever ideas. It will be in swedish but
I will add a translate gadget to make
it easy for the foreign readers.

I can't wait to get everything set up :)
This blog will continue as usual,
the new blog is simply a fun addition
where I can share ALL my ideas ♥

Talk to you soon!

♥ XOXO ♥

:: Template - My blog favorite as 12x12 template ::

As you may have noticed I'm loving
the 6 things heart blog template I created
some time ago. I keep finding new ways
to use it for blog posts and I thought why
not make a 12x12 300 pixels template
as well to use for digital scrapbooking?


Said and done, here it is,
I hope you will find as much use for
it as have :)

:: A little something ::

I've been doing a "lot" of paper scrapping
lately, or at least more than usual.
I shot these with my iPhone so the quality
isn't the best but I'm just super excited
about it working a bit better since the
latest update by apple ^^




:: I can not live without.. ::

We all have out own personal scrapbook must
haves, and I thought it would be fun to share mine.



First are my fiskars scissors, love love love them.

My Easy Mounter by 3L, I can not live without
it, I panic when my local scrapbook store run out
of it, and I can't seem to find it online.

My new Bamboo tablet, perfect for digital
scrapbooking, designing, and photo editing.

My printer is the best thing I ever bought,
it really helped me turn my scrapbook dreams
in to reality. I print tons of photos, and digital
kits to use for hybrid projects.

Stickles! Love them, they add that extra
something to my layouts. I want them in
every single color, working on it..

This are my paper scrap
faves right now, these lovely lovely
die cuts by October Afternoon ♥
Love at first sight!

I would love to hear your top faves,
add a comment below and promote
the scrapbook tools you can not live without :)

:: Template - 4 photo Love ::

Hiya Friends!
I thought I would give you a little freebie today
since it's Midsummer's Eve and all here in Sweden :)

This template fits 1 - 4 photos depending
on how many you feel like scrapping.
You can fill out the empty photo spaces
with patterned paper, or add some extra
journaling or embellishments if you're
working with less than 4 photos.


I hope you will find use for it.
Thanks a bunch to those of you
who leave comments, I read and
love them all, you're the best!

It is in 90 pixels/inch to fit the blogs,

:: Template - 1 Photo layered papers ::

I'm feeling generous today, and what
better way to show it than to share
yet another template with you all?

It is a clean one photo layout.
You can easilly add your own touch by adding
embellishments of your choice.

I think it would look wonderful with some
buttons in the top left corner!
I haven't had time to try it out yet, but I'm feeling
really inspired to, so hopefully I'll get to share
my layout with you soon!
Hope you like the template!

:: Template - 356 - 7 Photo Cluster ::

Finally, finally I've got time to bring you
the template of the day :)


Today I want to share this 7 photo
cluster layout. It's perfect for scrapping
your 365 layouts, but is also ideal for
all those multi photos of basically the
same thing (parents you know what I'm
talking about) where you can't really pick
just one photo to work with :)

It would also be nice to scrapbook photos
from a special event or family get together.
I would love to see what you come up with!

We did it!

Phew, the big day is over and we can all
just sit down and relax. I cooked a buffet
for about 25 people, baked 60 cupcakes,
and made tons of decorations :)
I hope to share some photos with you soon!

For those of you who missed me talking
about it earlier, it was my baby's first
birthday and christening all in one day!
Busy times!

Running around with a (soon to be)

Wish me luck!

wedding decorations?

:: Baka Goda Örtbaguetter ::

Because I find it kinda tricky to translate
recipes I won't even try with this one because
I might end up messing up your whole batch :)
If you like you can use the translate button to the
left, pick your language and google will translate
this blog for you. Pretty neat huh!

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Igår pratade jag om att jag skulle baka bröd.
Här har ni resultatet enormt goda!

För dig som vill testa själv kommer receptet här:

Recept Örtbaguetter
25 g jäst, ½ pkt
6 dl vatten
2 tsk salt
1 dl färska örtkryddor, t ex
basilika timjan, eller rosmarin,
hårt packade, fint hackade
(Jag använde basilika och persilja)
13-14 dl vetemjöl
10 örtkvistar, till garnering
Grov eller fling salt

Tillagning


Dela jästen på mitten.

Tips!
Dela från hörn till hörn så blir delarna lika stora!

Smula jästen i en bunke.
Värm vattnet tills det är fingervarmt,
37 grader. Häll lite av vattnet i bunken och rör
tills all jäst har lösts upp. Tillsätt resten av
vattnet och salt. Blanda ner kryddorna i degspadet.


Rör i nä…
