My mother is very important to me and we are very close. We currently live very far apart but speak on the phone at least once a day, which we have since I moved out. I am very happy with how this photo turned out. I took it last Christmas and wanted to do something special with it that symbolize mum. I’ve chosen colors for the layout that fit her. When I saw that pink-purple paper I knew right away what I wanted to do with it.

I chose to do the layout clean and simple with few decorations. The decoration in the close-up is the stamp scallop journaling small and buttons with tulle attached.

Already a new month and time for another challenge!

This is what you’re gonna do:

- Create something inspired by the sketch
- Use at least one stamp from Tingtura (no other material limits)
- Send your contribution (one per person) to challenge@tingtura.se latest 30 of April

The winner gets a gift voucher worth 100 SEK!

Here are two interpretations of the sketch:

For this layout I made my own background using Dots several times with a watermark stamp pad and then embossed with clear powder. The journaling spot is Scallop Small and I stamped it with StazOn on a piece of clear plastic. The red hearts will soon appear in the webshop too.

For the card I used one of our big sellers Girl hugging Heart and she is colored with distress ink. On the big flower I stamped Bubbel wrap Medium and on the small flower its Dotted circle small. Then I sprayed them with a few different mists. Stamping and spraying flowers is such a simple technique and it gives them so much more life! We have lots of texture stamps you should try this with.

Today I made a LO with some older photos, usually when I scrap I tend to use the most recent photos. But sometimes you have to dig a bit further in your photo stack. I found these photos from 2 years ago, and I still remeber how much fun we had blowing bubbles. And if I still remeber an every dag happening from 2 years ago it meens that I have to scrap them! :D

For this LO Dots fitted perfectly, and so did Star swirl long wich I used on the edge and one of those must have journaling stamps Circle lined

It’s monday again and time for a new sketch! Hope it will inspire you :)

I’ve made a layout and a card inspired by the sketch

On the layout I’ve used Lined Rectangle Spot och fish from Maja’s Friends.

For the card I used Bunny buddies from Filiona and some of our swedish text stamps (du är söt = you are cute). The bunnies are colored with ProMarkers. The blue bunny is a little embarassed by what the pink bunny is saying so it got a little pink dry chalk on it’s cheak. :)

Last week Sofie was one of many who was inspired by our sketch and sent a photo of her creation to us. Isn’t it a beautiful card?

If you make something inspired by the sketch please send it to us at sketch@tingtura.se or show it on our message board.

This weeks stamp on sale is the entire set Urban Texture Dots. You’ll find it at a really nice price in the webshop!

Here is some inspiration to show how much fun you can have with these stamps. I’ve only used monochrome paper and stamps to create my own patterned paper. It’s more fun to make your own papers! :)

The gold stars and the butterfly is also found in the webshop.

Here is the cute butterfly again together with a ribbon from the web shop.

Sometimes I get tired of my work and it feels like I’m doing the same thing over and over. So I try to do something different but usually it still looks the same, so this time I took a couple of steps back. When I started with scrapbooking I often got comments like simple and stylistically pure and I always thought that people found my layouts boring. But now I tried to do a simple page and I really like the result. But it’s hard to learn an old dog new tricks ;) so don’t be suprised if next week I’m showing you a page with lots of decos framing the photo :D

I used Urban Sky Flower and one of my favourite Journaling Lined Rectangle

Last summer one of my boys found these cool straws tucked away in the kitchen. Of course he had to try them and of course I had to take a photo ;) On this layout I used cool from Scrapwords and the beautiful Swirl long I also used it to stamp on the flowers next to the photo.

Here is a small taste of what you can do with a few Urban stamps, some mists/washes and acrylic paint. It is so much fun to play with these Urban stamps!

I have used the following stamps: Flying star small straight, Star swirl long, Flygande stjärna medium, Striped scallop journaling spot and Topplistan (swedish word stamp).

Since our son loves the movie Wall-E at the moment I wanted a space themed lay-out and the different star stamps from the Urban collection was perfect.
