Good Cheer

This layout was a challenge to myself: To use a huge bold title (this one is from some old OA Christmas paper) and bold colors and papers. It is very different from my other projects, but I love it. Also love the photo of my sons: Melvin resting on Asbjørns lap, while he is playing a game on my phone. The do make me happy when skies are grey!

What bring you good cheer today?

Project Life (week 14+15)

Didn't realize before I took these pictures, that I almost kept both weeks in the same color scheme. Guess I like those colors right now!

Not much happening, just documenting everyday life, which makes me happy. Oh, we did get a new computer! I still haven't used it yet, as most of the software I use is just for Windows. Someday...I will love editing pics on the huge screen for my photography business.

And week 15: The week Melvin started daycare (we found out on Thursday that he got accepted to begin alreday on Monday):

Chapter 1 - the beginning

I am taking a layering class at Studio Calico this month. I have become a huge fan of layering, and am still trying to incorporate it into my CAS (clean and simple) style. The first challenge was to lift a layout in the class pdf. I liftet the talented Marcy Penner, as she had done a grid design. I am forever a big fan of grid designs!

I have been too lazy to pull ouyt my sewing machine for months, but did it for this project. And got to stich on a bunch of other projects too, while it was on the table.

I cannot deny I love brown and tone on tone.

All About a boy

I created these layouts for using Echo Park's All About a Boy collection. Two very simple and super fast layouts, just the way I like it!

Project Life (week 13)

So this was the week of Melvins first birthday. As I have showed in a previous blogpost we had a rubber duck theme party for him.

I used a lot of goodies from Echo Park All About a Boy collection for this spread, since it was made as inspiration for the blog.

I added an insert with photos from the birthday party. The cakes, our family and the guests.

Layouts with Core'dinations

I created these two layouts at the yearly Scrap-a-mania crop while demonstrating Core'dinations cardstock for

Both layouts use the Jillibean/Core'dinations pre-embossed cardstock, ready to sand to reveal the color core. So much fun!

One (super) Happy Day

For NSD (National Scrapbooking Day) last weekend Studio Calico had a challenge to "use a mask and no mist". I used modelling paste. Totally the easy solution!
I colored the try modelling paste with grey Promakers and added a little gold splatter.

Project LIfe (week 11 + 12) - and Bloglovin'

More Project Life pages to share. The first week was made for Love2scrap using the new Dear Lizzy and Amy Tangerine collections. I used the 4x4 page protector on the right side which is great for Instagram photos. And I have so many of those!

You can follow me on Instagram @brandtlassen. I love connecting with others (especially scrappers) on this incredible app. It's a great community! Love love Instagram.

I am posting my pages on Instagram way faster than on this blog. Tried to upload them yesterday using photo-pics, but the quality was so poor, I had to removed the entry. Would have been so nice if I had worked, as it would have help me to update this blog more often... oh well, here are week 11 and 12:

Did I mention I love Instagram?

By the way, are you familiar with Bloglovin'? My life has gotten so busy now with two children, family, work and everything in between. I need to still add a lot of my favorite blogs to my feed, but every morning I get a daily feed in my e-mail inbox with all new entried on the blogs I love. If I have the time I click on an entry (and leave a comment. Don't you just love when people say "hi', I stopped by"?. Sure makes my day!). Bloglovin also has an app for iphone making it even more easy to keep track of the favorite blogs. This way I don't spend my limited sparetime clicking on blogs to check if there's any new entries.

You can follow me on Bloglovin here.
