Christmas Flair Buttons

So I finally finished some new sets of Christmas flair buttons. They are on sale at Etsy, but you can also order by sending me a message on Facebook from the Brandt-Lassen Design page if you are not a member of the Etsy community. I am really looking forward to hopefully using these myself this holiday season! Gotta love flair buttons :-)

Christmas Stamps (Brandt-Lassen Design)

So this is really exciting new. For me at least! This is my second stamp release (Yes, I know the blog readers missed the first one. I'll catch up on that someday) and I'm so happy to share the new Christmas stamps with you.

It is crazy un-believeable to have my very own stamps for sale at scrapbooking stores.  And totally out of this world SUPER COOL to see projects show up on blogs and Instagram using my stamps (and flair buttons).

I'm am beyond thankful for the support of the Danish scrapbooking community. You have made this humble girl very happy!

These stamps are for sale at my Etsy shop for 72 Dkr. They measure 9.5x9.5 cm. 
Right now you get free shipping and these matching flair buttons if you buy all 6 stamp sets. 

The stamps will also be for sale at your local Danish Scrapbooking stores. How exciting is that??!!

Halloween Flair Buttons (and an update)

Hallo, is there anybody in here? Wow. It's been so long since I last visited my blog that I actually forgot the url (and typed, which is not exactly me. For a second I though someone hijacked my blog. hi hi). So what happened? Life happened. Both the good life but also the bad life.  My Buddhist mind does not like to talk about fighting and struggles, but rather to talk about challenges. It's no secret that my health has been a challenge for many many years, but this year it developed into a struggle. I will not dwell on the details, but just mention that I have been forces to make brave decisions towards a better, brighter future. I need to get to the other side before revealing my plans, but I firmly believe my life and health will be better in the future.

This year I went from creating over a 100 yearly layouts, to lets just say way fewer than that! I've been so stressed that for the first time ever my creative mind just stopped working. Actually, everything stop working, it feels like. I have not been able to sit down and enjoy the process of scrapbooking for a long time. I have forces myself to do so because of my Design Team obligations, and was in the process reminded how much I miss creating beautiful stuff.

I found out that designing at the computer was a creative outlet I could actually manage. I could just turn off the computer and the room would not be a mess like with scrapbooking (well, it is a mess, but that's because I don't have the time nor energy to tidy my space. But that's a different story! I have been able to spend 10 minutes here and there, and the result has been more flair buttons and stamps. But still no scrapbooking and definitely no blogging. Instagram has been my friend, though. Love that App and it's ability to connect me to wonderful people all over the world. And I love the instant feedback. I've needed that, since my blog doesn't get many comments. Comments motivate, but it's just so much easier with Instagram and Facebook. So that's why I started a Facebook page. Not to add another media to update, but to have a media where I would actually be active and connect with people.

I'd be happy if you'd like Brandt-Lassen Design on Facebook or follow me on Instagram @brandtlassen, as I am more likely to actually show signs of life over there.

So without further ado, I'll introduce my new Halloween flair buttons (the Christmas release will be in a separate post), so this post actualy contain pictures! It is October after all, and being a big fan of everything that was to do with decorations and dressing up, I couldn't pass up the chance of creating a little something for this spooky event.

Danish Flair Buttons (danske badges til scrapbooking)

So it took me long enough...but I finally got around to list some of my Danish Flair Buttons on Etsy. I have been designing these little cuties for the past year, but with a baby in the house the button machine was pretty much just sitting there unused. I finally put the machine to use these past months and have been designing like crazy until I came up with some sets I really liked. I do hope you like them, too!

You can visit my little Etsy store here.

And below are a handfull of the 20+ sets I have listed. There are many more camera-related sets including some specifically for Instax and Instagram (just because I am a huge fan of all things camera related and think they always look great on layouts, since they tend to include a photos shot with some sort of camera, right?), more baby flairs and flair for Project Life or everyday layouts. All sets are mostly with Danish text, but I'm happy to change the language to e.g. English.

More sets will be listed soon (hopefully within the next month, but no promise). If you follow me in Instagram you are sure not to miss a shop update! I'm brandtlassen ( If you are not on Instagram, go join!!! I am addicted beyond measures. Oh, and do follow me on Etsy as well.

I'd love to hear what you think, so please leave a comment!

Flying high (in Legoland)

A colorful boy-layout using Echo Park All about a Boy collection and lots of airplanes including a cute wood veneer airplane. We visited Legoland a few weeks ago, and I was inspired to finally use these photos I had printed after a visit years ago. The Lego-colors work perfectly with the bright EP collections, and it's a fun challenge for me to use bold colors...

Island hopping

A few months ago I went on a weekend crop with some very talented ladies. We challenged each other all weekend and one of the challenges was to use a very special "kit": We had each bought supplies for about 50 Dkr., so we each got a pile of pretty random scrapbooking supplies to use... The only rule was to use a part of E.V.E.R.Y S.I.N.G.L.E item on the page.

Here is the page I created. I love how it turned out:

And here is a picture of the items we were to use on our project. Not exactly the ideal kit, but a fun challenge:  

And finally some deatil shots of my layout. Even used an Anchor roller stamp... 

And finally a picture of all the layouts using the exact same products. Amazing how diffrent they turned out. 

Thanks ladies, I had a fantastic weekend!

Chicago Bean

My absolute favorite city is Chicago. Besides Paris, it's the city I have visited the most outside of Denmark. I love love Chicago, and have since my first visit back in 1996! So happy my husband also fell in love with the city 10 years ago, so we can go there as a family. So much to do with children as well. Crossing my fingers to return for a 7th visit next summer!

This layout was made a year ago (and updated with more stamps in the fall) and features photos from a January-trip to Chicago some years back. SAS had an incredible bonus-points deal and the trip was a spur of the moment that cost us only 500 Dkr in airport taxes!! Loved seeing the city with snow and huge ice flakes in the river. 

I created my background using different kinds of stamps, mist, inks and gesso over a star-mask.

Project Life (week 20+21)

Here are the last two weeks of May 2013. The baby isn't mine, but gosh I feel lucky to be able to photograph these precious little newborns. The first week we once again went to the Medieval Market at Valby. Such an awesome Pinse-tradition. 

Oh, and Denmark won the European Song Contest! hooray!

That little white tube-thing I'm holding in my hand is my life-saver. It's a shunt that regulates the flow of my spinal fluid as my body cannot absorb it the normal way. I have a condition called Hydrocephalus, and this week the Danish Hydrocephalus Association met in Jylland.

Birthday cards with Hero Arts Stamps

Last week I blogged these cards on the I used some birthday stamps fra Hero Arts to create some easy cards. The possibilities with this stamp set is almost endless.

For the first card I revisited a layering technique I haven't done in a long time.

The second card got a feminine touch with a red heart on top of the cupcake. 

And finally the last card I kept very neutral, so it would work perfectly for a man.
