My name is Monika Martinson and I live in Sweden, just outside of Stockholm with my daughter, who is now 6, and her father. I have been scrapping since 2004, when my DD was born.
Up till a few months ago I would have said that my scrap style is shabby- chic-romantic, with lots of layers, torn paper and flowers. However all of the sudden I got bored of myself and I started experimenting with a different style and a different size. Nikki Sivils papers would not have been my first choice for my previous style but now… Well, it was love at first sight when I got my guest dt-kit.
This layout would probably best represent my older scrap style. It was so much fun to play with all the cute embellishments that I almost couldn´t stop. The layout is about how difficult I find it to buy clothes now that my body doesn´t look as it ought to. I guess I`m the only one around here with that problem?
On this layout I used so many patterns I could. The flower pattern was downloaded from the internet and I also added a few flowers. I printed the title on one of the PP:s. To make them look like chipboard, I glued layers of CS together. This layout is about how much my DD loves her hats, very much unlike her mother.
I am totally in love with these patterns and they are so perfect for cards. My cards are “Good Luck” cards for colleagues that are quitting their jobs. On two of the cards I made my own rose, really easy and a lot of fun. A warning though – if you start, you might spend a lot of hours doing them, they are definitely addictive.
