First Aid Kit Band...

This blog-post has nothing to do with scrapbooking but I just wanted to celebrate that my favourite band "First Aid Kit" (two young Swedish sisters) got their first gold record in Sweden, three weeks after "The Lion's Roar" was released! So happy for them:) Their genre is folk/country/indie-pop I guess.

Making Quick Cards for Valentine's Day...

I realized the other day that it's soon Valentine´s Day (or All Hearts Day as we call it in Sweden). So what to do when you're in a hurry and can't find any suitable stamps? Well, luckily I happened to read a recent blog-post by pro card-maker Jennifer McGuire, she had made the cutest hybrid cards with a pair of owls AND she's got a link to a free PDF-file that you just can print out on white card-stock. Makes it all super easy! You can find her blog-post here.

Here's my version of the card, not especially original as it's rather similar to Jennifer's card, but a really quick card:)

I've stamped the Kraft card-base with a background stamp from Hero Arts; Designer Woodgrain, pink paper from Echo Park.
