Big Girl

Happy Monday everyone! :-) Personally, I can't believe it's Monday again. Can someone please slow down this crazy time? I can't keep up!

Anyhow, I wanted to share one of my new personal favorites. I made it for DESIGN in PAPERS, using the Lemonlush collection from Studio Calico.


I've been making these sketched titles for some time now and I am so happy to see that people out there have started to do the same. Every time I manage to inspire someone, I feel like the happiest girl in the world :-) This time, I wanted to try something new and fill it with pattern too. I love how it turned out!


I have always had hard time with purple when it comes to scrapbooking. But this collection has started to change me! Ha! Who could have known? I love that big, purple butterfly!


That would be all for this time. Thanks for stopping by!

October Afternoon: My Hero

Hi guys! Stopping by to share a layout I had on the October Afternoon blog last week. It's about my mom, my hero, and it is made using the Daily Flash Girl Talk line.


I am loving the chipboard additions to the Daily Flash collections. Especially these cute chipboard hearts ♥



I have a sketch behind this layout too, so head over to the OA blog to check it out if you are interested. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Paper Issues: Pocket Full of Sunshine

Who's ready for some sunshine? That's what the new issue over at Paper Issues is all about: "Pocket Full of Sunshine". Our amazing (or should I say beyond amazing???) sponsor this time is Panda Eight Designs. Martha Bonneau is designing some pretty awesome flair and you can win 5 sets of your own choice. So head over to the PI blog and start linking up!



Martha was so generous to send custom designed flair to all of us who are on this issue, but unfortunately my package didn't arrive on time :-( I will make something as soon as I get it! In the meantime, here is my own little Miss (umm...) sunshine?


I have used the Flea Market collection from Crate Paper.


She got her hair done this day. To be able to cut it straight, the hairdresser had to flatten her curls. She loved the look, but she was not so happy about me pulling out my camera :-) 


She looks so much older this way. Way too much older...


Did you know that you can get all the new Crate from the Paper Issues store? How about Styleboard? 


Or Boys Rule?


Or why not Oh, Darling? 


Seriously, it is impossible to pick a favorite!! I am getting them all! :-) Eeeeek! Can't wait to play! You can get yours with 20% off by using ALEX20 at checkout.


Now, head over to the linky party and start sharing your "Pocket Full of Sunshine" projects! I can't wait to see them!

Thanks for stopping by!

Paper Issues: Count Your Lucky Stars

Hi everyone! Ready for a new issue from Paper Issues? This time, it is all about Lucky Stars.

I made this layout for Roree Rumph's sketch challenge over at the October Afternoon blog last week, but it is perfect for this issue too. Here it is, a layout full of stars!


If you (like me) can't live without your Cameo, you are going to love our sponsor! One of my favorite cut-file designers Lori Whitlock is giving away a $25 GC to her store! Wooooot! 

Speaking about Cameo, I've used it to cut all the stars on my layout. All besides the three small, red ones which are heat embossed. The star stamp is from the Daily Flash Homemade stamp set by October Afternoon.


I have used the fun and beautiful Daily Flash All Boy collection.


For my title, I mixed three different kinds of alphas, chipboard Grey Flannel and stickers Snap Peas and Dandelions.


You can find all October Afternoon Daily Flash products HERE in the Paper Issues store. They can be yours for 20% off the price if you use ALEX20 at checkout.


Now head off to the PI blog and start linking up your projects for a chance to win a $25 GC to the Lori Whitlock store!


Thanks so much for stopping by!

Design in Papers: Kick-Off Blog Hop

Hi everyone! I am finally able to share some happy, scrappy news! I am joining the DESIGN in PAPERS design team. DESIGN in PAPERS is an awesome, Swedish wholesaler carrying some of my favorite brands. I am so excited and proud to be a part of this team. This is our big kick-off blog hop!  

Since DiP is a Swedish store, I am going to write my posts for them mainly in Swedish. I hope my English speaking friends can forgive me ;-)


Hej och välkommen till DESIGN in PAPERS stora kick-off tävling och blogg-hopp!

Jag är så otroligt glad att du är här och vill fira med oss! Genom att delta i den här blogg-hoppen och/eller i LIFT-tävlingen har du chansen att vinna fina priser från DESIGN in PAPERS. Du kan läsa mer om tävlingen på DESIGN in PAPERS blog.

Jag är först ut i blogg-hoppen, så du borde ha kommit hit direkt från DESIGN in PAPERS.

För er som inte känner mig, så heter jag Alex och bor i Järfälla utanför Stockholm. Jag är 30-nånting, gift och har två små, söta krulltroll till barn. Dem kommer ni att se mycket av på mina layouter. Jag är en nördig mjukvaruingenjör, som just nu tyvärr inte hinner med så mycket mer än att jobba, vara mamma och leka med fina papper. Det gör jag gärna med en bra ljudbok i öronen. 

När Cicci frågade mig om jag ville vara en del av hennes design team, blev jag utom mig av lycka. DESIGN in PAPERS har många av mina favoritmärken och jag längtar efter att få dela med mig och försöka inspirera er där ute. Så, nu kör vi igång!! Yay!! :-)

I mitt första DT-paket fick jag den fantastiska Lemonlush serien från Studio Calico. Jag är upp över öronen kär i den! Här är mitt första DiP layout.


Material: SC Lemonlush 12x12 Paper Pad (pp In A Hurry, pp Wordsmith), SC Lemonlush Ephemera, SC Lemonlush Solid & Newsprint Hearts, SC Lemonlush Round Epoxy Top Clips, SC Lemonlush Die-Cut Butterflies, SC Lemonlush Printed Fabric Tags.

Här kommer några närbilder på allt det fina :-)





Förutom de stora priserna som man kan vinna borta hos DESIGN in PAPERS, så har du också en chans att vinna en fin liten RAK här inne hos mig. Det enda du behöver göra för att vara med i utlottningen är att lämna en kommentar till det här inlägget. 

Du kan också få två extra lotter om du:
1. Följer min blogg.
2. Följer mig på Instagram (@agadji). 

Inga måsten. Gör det bara om du gillar det jag gör :-) 

Nu är det dags att hoppa vidare till Birgitta för mer inspiration och fler chanser att vinna fina priser!

Tusen tack för titten! Hoppas att vi ses snart igen!
