CSI challenge #259

Hi and time for a new CSI challenge, no 259 (see link):

Here is my LO :

And here is the mood board with colors and elements:
I chosed the traditional way to follow the CSI challenge, and at the same time I did a challenge from the Ali Edwards craft the story- community : to use emballishment I didn't use before. I chosed the speech bubbles and that was perfect in this CSI case.

Because one of the testimony was: put journaling in speech bubbles (from Ali Edwards). And another testimony was to write about a trip. My journaling was about how we took a train trip to Alicante to celebrate my husbands birthday 5 July. I also wrote about my son that felt lonely (as his brothers with friends just went home to Sweden). 

Solid white background, map pattern, speech bubbles, transportation, travel-themed elements, food elements, stamping, cursive font, design your layout as a map

Some closer views: 
travel-themed element, cursive font, map pattern, layout as a map: you see the map sign for railway track : the black line crossed with a lot of small, horizontal lines that goes through all my photos.

food element (Ali Edwards)

stamping, a part of the map symbol for the rail way track

Colors: I used all colors.

Above: My testimony on stripes and here are the translation:

"I'm so happy when I manage to collect my 4 boys, 
yes Billy is also counted in as well! (a dog)
It's not so easy to attract the sons to come
to summer house, but ONE thing attract them: the boat!
I mean Joel's own renovated boat. So surprised we became
when suddenly Joel, Raheb and Markus appeared
an early morning by car - the were going to take a boat trip!"

CSI #257

Swedish summer - I love it (if it's not too cold)!
I scrapped a LO in the form of PL as the CSI 257 had this design in the mood board. See link:

Here is my ”PL-LO” :

I chosed to follow the traditional way of CSI.

The sheme: almost all colors are included, but the pink is more cerise

Evidence: Floral pattern, stripes, wood, flowers, leaves, pineapple, lemon, banner, clouds, glasses, quadrant design, black & white pattern, string, tiny brads

Testimony: documenting summer (see end of blog)

Some closer looks of my evidence and testimony (in the end):

Above you see: cloud, banner, lime

Above you see: string, cloud, wood,  flower, tiny brads (in the middle of the black & white flowers) black & white pattern, flower

Above you see: wood, leaves, flowers, banner, string

Above you see: pineapple, leave, part of my quadrant layout of my photos and journaling.

Finally the testimony:
My testimony was written on lemon- paper with more pineapples, wood and string in the top left corner + stripes on a paper behind.

The journaling translated from Swedish to English says:

A sucessful Swedish summer includes both sun and rain, as this weekend. But also small, spontaneous excursions and the summer house, boat fix, nature, be together with family. Thanks to the boat we have, our sons visited us. Water skiing was attracting them to come. But, we missed the visit to my parents summer house in middle of Sweden (Jämtland), I didn't have anyone who wanted to join me. "

CSI challenge #253

The lovely weather in cold Sweden has made me be outside more than inside, scrapping. But of course I wanted to participate in CSI challenge 253 (see link)  because I wanted to write the story about howI started to do scrapbooking.

So here is my LO:

And I chosed to follow the traditional way of CSI challenge. 
Here is the inspiration picture:

Colors: I used all
Evidence: Solid cardstock, die cuts, handcutting (turquose flowers), washi tape, leaves, paint, cirkles, metal
Testimony: Documented about my creative hobby, handwriting, word: beginnings

And som closer views with clues.
Evidence: Handcutted flowers, leaves, washi tape, 

Evidence: Paint, circles, metal, 

I like to do layers.

The testimony was handwritten and was about how I started scrapbooking. I first met a girl on a smaller stamp exhibition who invited me and a friend to a scrap meeting. I was creating cards by that time 2003, but really liked the scrap album idea and started after that. The same girl that invited me, I met later when I started to join scrap training for this girl (Therese). And I have participated in many! The only thing I found less good was that I could just use ONE photo per page, I wanted more. So when the Project Life came to my knowledge, I felt really "home" so I combine that with scrap book layouts. And nowadays I write more stories around the photo/photos. 
I also love scrap meetings, and these photos are from a scrap meeting where we made mini albums at "Sirap-i-Paris", that unfortunately had to close their webshop/business just recently (in May 2018). The best event every year is the biggest scrap meeting in Sweden (1-2000 participants) that also includes exhibition of scrap booking, planner, knitting, pearls. This is what I look forward to every year. 

Thanks for watching!

Veckans skiss #194

Jag är med i CSI challenge för att dokumentera mitt hem, och passade på att följa skissen från "Veckans Skiss" se länk. 

Så här blev min LO till slut (och i förra inlägget har jag skrivit om CSI challenge som jag tävlar i, mest för att få inspiration). Det är en perfekt kombo med CSI challenge och Veckans skiss!

Jag har satsat på mycket dokumentation, för jag ska fylla på med fler hem-historier i ett album. 

Här är skissen som jag följt:

Två närbilder:

Tack för titten!

CSI no 252

What a perfect timing! I have just started to document the history of my different homes, and then this challenge from CSI came in with the perfect inspiration for me. See the link. 
Here is my LO:

and here is the inspiration picture:

I followed the old style challenge with the different "glues".

The colors: almost all colors.
Evidence: stripes, dots, text pattern, washi tape, metal, hearts
Testimony: doocumentation about my home

Some closer views:

Washi tape, metal, heart, dots (I love the metal "tape thing")

heart, text pattern, dots, stripes

Finally the testimony about my home I grow up in:

The documentation is about what I feel most as my home, and that's where I grew up from 4 years age until I was19 years old , where my mother and father still lives. I told about the reason why I feel this as my home, the security feeling because our parents allways took care of us, and helped us when we had problems. I also told about that we came back to our home also when we moved away to new homes like the student apartment, how nice it was to come home in the weekends and feel safe and eat good food. And then when I got children I came back with them to my old home so they could get the same feeling that I grew up with.

CSI challenge #251

Hi, here is a LO about when my son got his driving license and bought his dream car (not new, but really nice). I thought that all clouds could represent his dream about a white BMW and the driving license.  I was inspirated from CSI challenge nr 251 (see link).

And here is the inspiration picture.

I love to follow the traditional way of CSI challenge, so this is the clues: 

All colors
Evidence: clouds, other animals, flower, fabric, word stamp
Testimony: text on LO and answer a random question

Here some closer views of my evidences:

Animal, cloud, fabric, flower

Animals, cloud, text directly on the LO (testimony).

Love the letters that is almost transparant, "KÖRKORT" is the same as "DRIVING LICENSE".

My favorite: a cute cloud in plastic that I got as a gift from the webshop "Sirap-i-Paris".

More fabric (flower) below.
Testimony:Text directly on the LO, handwritten: I have answered the question 81 from the "Prompt idea" to choose a random question: "Which car do you have" and I have documented by hand: "The dream of a white BMW got true!"

Thanks for watching!

Veckans Skiss #190

Hej, här är en LO till PL-albumet där jag fick hjälp med fantasin tack vare "Veckans Skiss" (se länk). Jag ville dokumentera killarnas födelsedagar i april, förra året, när de blev uppvaktade på sängen. (Skönt att få scrappa igen efter en veckas influensa.)

Så här ser skissen ut från Ciza:

Och här är lite närbilder på pyntet. 

Die-cuts pyntet är från ICA-maxi (köpte förra året tror jag). 

Älskar washitejpen från "Sirap i Paris"

Älskar även PL-korten och pappren från "Sirap i Paris"!

Tack för titten! Gunilla (gunilla_pysslar på instagram)
