Fun with a phonebook

I just wanted to stop by and share this little Christmas tag
I made using an old phone book. I look up all my numbers
online so I don't really need it but it seemed like such a
waste to just throw it away.

Here you have the result ♥


Paper Christmas Wreath

I needed something to spice up my door with
and came up with the idea of making a wreath
myself out of my scrapbook supplies.

After a quick google search I found this lovely
tutorial at the blog The Read Thread

And here is the finishes result :)
This would also make a lovely gift for friends
and family around the holidays.

Getting ready for the holidays

Today I started decorating my home for the holidays,
I even dressed the tree but only to realize I don't
want it to be white and silver this year!

This was after hours of work..
Oh well, I better get some shopping done this
weekend because what I'm dreaming of is a
gold tree, really stunning and very American.
You guys really do have the most beautiful
Christmas trees! What's the secret? :)

I also wanted to share this little video I made
to show you holiday preparations from the last
two years. This is what Christmas in Sweden looks
like, at least for me and my family :)

More free printables on their way!

Hi all!
Are you getting ready for the holidays?
Have you started decorating your home yet?
It's still a bit too early for me, instead I've been
keeping myself busy listening to Christmas
tunes while designing some more printable
Christmas tickets!

I will be sharing these with you all tomorrow,
Friday, for free of course, so feel free to
stop by then, I'll be here waiting :)
XOXO

Edit. Sorry I didn't get these up last night I had
to go to work and didn't get home until late.
But soon real soon I will post these :)
Sorry to keep you waiting!

4 free for personal use jpg papers packed in a zip

I can't get enough of these lovely old vintage images found
at Graphics Fairy, just stunning. Be sure to pay her a visit!

If you like the freebies you find at this blog please tell your
friends, I love to share my work, and the more the merrier :)

And a closer look at the papers included in the pack
I really wanted a sort of rough, torn feeling to the papers, but
also keep the very glamorous feel of how I imagine a vintage
traditional Christmas. Red and gold, warm vibrant colors,
but I also added a brown/ice blue paper for your winter
projects and layouts.



Thanks for stopping by!
♥XoXo♥

Printable vintage style christmas tickets

These tickets were inspired by old vintage photos,
Christmas cards and all around Christmas spirit.



They are ready to be printed (in a high photo quality for the
best result) cut and used on your paper scrap layouts,
Christmas cards, gifts and altered projects.

All I ask in return is that you link back to this blog
if you post your finished projects online.
This way more people can find their way here and
download the tickets :)

Oh and when you're done downloading you must take
a look at the wonderful blog Graphics fairy where I
found the vintage images used in this project.

To make your tickets more personal use the edge of your
scissors to distress the edges and for an aged look use a
bit of fluid chalk around the edges.













I would love to see what you come up with so please if you
use the tickets leave me a little comment or send me an
e-mail at the80sme@gmail.com

Sjuk blogg

Ja det är visst vad miss cutiepie gått och blivit :P Jo du gissade
rätt, jag är fortfarande sjuk. Varit hos farbror doktorn idag och
gjort en ordentlig undersökning, usch usch!
Är satt på röstvila och sjukskriven resten av veckan. Min influensa
har visst förvandlats till en stämbandsinflamation. Hur som helst
hoppas att ni lyckas hålla er friska. Bestämt om ni ska vaccinera er
mot influensan?Skickat från min iPhone
