A layout, a new tool and a GIVE-AWAY!

20 Jul

Hey all!

There won’t be a wordless Wednesday from me this week, because I have so much new stuff to write about! Firstly, we got our new washer yesterday. I posted a photo of it on Instagram. Maybe you’re following me and got the news then? It’s really great to have a reliable washer again!

We, or I, got something else yesterday as well. This post by Amy Tan pushed me over the edge this weekend and made me order my very own Silhouette. It arrived yesterday and I got a chance to play with it today, making a new layout. This layout is based on this week’s Skissedilla. It’s a true clean’n simple layout, using one cardstock, one patterned paper, one mist and two tags. My order from Elle’s Studio arrived today, with just what I needed for this layout.

This is the story: My husband is very much hooked on George R. R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire series, after waiting for the next book for 5 years, he was looking forward to it arriving in the mail last week. It had been shipped from England on Friday July 8th. Long story short, we ended up getting it twice due to our (my) impatience.

Also, I thought I’d make a give-away. I’ve got lots of paper flower. Paper flowers I do not use. Link this give-away on your blog and comment here with a link to your blog for a chance to win! I’ll be sending the flowers pictured in the slide show above, and any else I can find, for free all over the world!

Thank you for reading!

    I love reading your posts Margrethe – you remind me of me sometimes – I’d totally have done the same thing with the book. In fact, I have a few double copies in hardcover, paperback, AND kindle versions.
    Exciting that the washer showed up, but even better about the Silhouette! I’m dying to buy one but I have a Cricut so probably not for a bit! Can’t wait to see what you create with it 🙂

      Haha! I’m glad I’m not the only one. We got to return the one we got in town, though 🙂

      Thank you for commenting! I used the Silhouette to make the title on this 🙂

    It’s nice to see someone excited about books. And you managed to translate this into a scrapbook page incredible I love the picture too very artistic.

    I couldn’t wait til my birthday and now I have two 🙂

    For et kult bilde! Digger oppsettet ditt 🙂 Synes selv det er vanskelig med C&S, men du fikser det lett!

    Takk for bidraget til Skissedilla

      Takk! Denne siden bare kom sammen helt på egen hånd, eller, slik føltes det iallefall 🙂
