Lappeteknikk - to vesker

I tillegg til scrapping har jeg de siste par årene også sydd en del lappeteknikk.

I våres sydde jeg to vesker etter et mønster på YouTube hos Missouri Star Quilt Co, kalt Tumbler Bag.

Jeg hadde en pakke med charms (5 x 5 inch firkanter) og fant ut at jeg ville prøve å lage en slik. Siden jeg ikke hadde vatt med lim på så brukte jeg det jeg hadde og det var platevatt. Valgte å bruke det bare på utsiden av veska og ikke på foret. Quiltet langs de rette sømmene, og litt ekstra oppe på toppen.
Resultatet ble denne veska:

Siden be det en til, men jeg hadde ikke flere charms pakker, så da brukte jeg noen stoffer jeg hadde og skar til bitene selv. Litt mer jobb, men helt greit.

Her er den:

I've used the the image "My Sweet Rose", and colored it with Prisma color pencils. This time I choose to make a card in fall colors.

In the place of the buttons on the sketch I used three rosebuds and placed them on some leaves. I also scattered some bling around it.

Sunset over Grand Canyon

It's time for the reveal from the double page team at Stick it Down.

I have made a layout with photos taken in the sunset at Grand Canyon. It was great to see, but it's hard to catch with the camera. 
Here is my page:

As you can see I used square photos instead of the circle ones in the sketch. I did it because I think it was better for my photos this time.
The sketch indicates two layers on top of the background paper and under the splash. I used only one and used washitape and a faux stiching to mark the other layer.

Here you can see the washi and the faux stich:

The sketch had very little embelishments, so I added in some more. On the photo over you can see a sentiment and an arrow that I put down on the left side.
I used some diecuts of trees in some places.

I used a Colorwash spray on the background and dripped some other mists too.

For my title I used thickers which I colored with gold Inka Gold.

The patterned papers are from Authenthique.

You have until October 31 to participate in the challenge at Stick it Down. And don't forget that we also have monthly sketches for cards and one-page layouts too.

Feeling Sketchy - sketch #177

It's time for a new sketch at Feeling Sketchy today.

I've made another Christmas card with a digistamp from our sponsor this month, Fred She Said.
I found old Christmas papers among my scraps for this card.

Here is the sketch:

The digistamps that I've used can you find at Fred She Said,

it's called Christmas Poinsetta Lantern Set, here.

I used an old sentiment stamp with the text "A star is shining tonight", and cut it in three pieces. In Norwegian poinsettas are called "Christmas star", so the text is here a kind of a wordplay.

Here are some closeups:

A great day

I made this layout some days ago. The photo is of my DH, taken in Grand Canyon last fall, when we walked the South Kaibab Trail.
We really had a great day and that's what my title says.

I colored the wood veneer blue so it would stand out from the background.

The grass chipboard are colored with embossing powders.

I used the September 1 sketch from  Let's Get Sketchy:

Last Christmas our two grandchildren visited us for a couple of days. On Christmas Day morning the two sat in there chairs for breakfast.

I have used this sketch from Stuck?!

Papers and embellishments are from the July kit from Swirlydoos. Papers from Scrapberry and chipboards from Creative Embellishments.
Some old thickers from my stash.

Here are some closeups:
