“My older girl making her first cairn (rock pile) at
Laufskálavarda with the help of her grandma.When passing
Laufskálavarda for the first time, legend has it that if you add to a
rock pile then you are blessed with luck on the journey.
And some details about the techniques from Anna,
“Core’diantions cardstock is one of my favesand I absolutely
love the embossed CS. You can really make a layout pop using those
beautiful patterns – and the sanding part is kinda fun. (We totally agree!)
I wanted to be able to transfer the texture of the lave rocks onto the
layout without losing that pink flowery feel. And the Basic Grey
Core’dinations cardstock was just perfect. I sanded the CS lightly
with my sanding block and voila – my background was perfectly pretty!”
And next up we have a layout from Anna-Karin Evaldsson.
Here are a few details that Anna-Karin shared with us about the techniques on this layout,
“A sheet of Core’dinations cardstock was cut into squares, embossed with patterns that worked well with the theme of the layout and sanded. They were adhered to black cardstock and then stitched together. I really like the tone on tone and textured effect. Two of the flowers were also dry embossed and then inked. The flower, alphabet and quote were white embossed on vellum. I had some fun with shrink plastic and stamped the little man, the telephone and the number strip on white shrink plastic. I also used a normal sized impression of the phone (symbolising that he can talk to his Godparents any time). The title was stamped with Distress Ink on sticky back canvas. The journaling is on the tag behind the photo and is about my sister and her DH being godparents to our little boy, and what that means, for instance that they will always listen and try to help. The Dymo text translates: ‘Always there for you’.
