an autumn palette

Hiya! Yesterday we published a little colour challenge on Freckled Fawn blog. It was hard for me to express myself in this palette, but I think the final effect is not very bad. I think it depends on picture I chose… my beautiful Katrin.

I {lowe} SCRAP ‚Tis The Season’, ‚Summer Dreamer’ & ‚Marine’ papers, Lily Bee ‚Autumn Spice’ Tiny Tablet 6×6, Chic Tags labels, Freckled Fawn washi tapes

I also would like to send my warm thoughts to my friends from United Stated, specially for Gosia and others living in NYC. I hope that the worst weather is behind you :*



‚Rondelle’ summer memories…

Today I have something rather ‚old’ for you. My mini-album made in… June (?!) I create this mini especially for Prima Marketing summer CHA 2o12. The whole album is made with my favourite Prima’s line: ‚Rondelle’.

It’s far different than my ‚Hey girl’ album. Colours are pale, there is a lot of pink inside… but you can also find some mixed-media actions near prima’s flowers 🙂 I think it’s rather interesting and strongly opposed to previous post :)))

If you are interested in every page and the list of materials I used here, you have to click >>> HERE <<< and move to Prima Marketing blog. You can also foind there two of my ‚Rondelle’ layouts! Thank you!


my addiction

This is a time for my confession… I am addicted… I am addicted to many things, but my greatest addiction is…

Ryan Gosling.

If you don’t know who is Ryan Gosling during this post, you will have an opportunity to know him a little bit (but I think everybody should watch his movies – because all of them are outstanding or very good). If any of you are interested in the titles of his movies I will give you some ‚the best of…’

Whatever – I feel like a teenager when I am watching Ryan Gosling, he is one of my greatest inspirations ever! Today I have a pleasure to show you my ‚Hey girl!’ mini album made especially for my classes in Austria (love you girls!).

I used SODAlicious ‚This is it‚  6×6 collection and ILS ‚LET it GO‚ line.

… and now some close-ups of the project…

Maybe you know Ryan Gosling? Try to recognize some of his roles 🙂

Stay, Drive, Blue Valentine, The notebook, Stupid Crazy Love, The Ides of March, Believer, Half Nelson, All Good Things, Lars and the Real Girl, Fracture, The United States of Leland…


alone with myself…

… the trees bend to caress me, the shade hugs my heart…

No 🙂 I’m not so depressing right now… it’s only a temporary autumn mood. I miss Barcelona’s sunshine and the sea… But there are some positives – I start scrapping again! And I am happy about that. Tonight I would like to show you my latest layout made with the latest ILS line the POPs OF.

I used also a beautiful birch-mask which I got from my amazing student from Austria – my sweetest Ela (thank you once again dear!)


I wish a beautiful sunny weekend. I will not publish any posts at Saturday and Sunday because I am going to teaching classes in Cracow! Wow I am so excited that I finally meet my Polish scrappy girls!

We have only two places at our December Daily classes, if you are interested just e-mail us at:


I’m back…

… for good 🙂 almost… because I am going to teaching classes in Cracow, but it will be a short trip. I wrote that I’m back because I made a layout. This is my first layout after a whole month! I was so scared, but I am still full of Barcelona’s sun and I gave a little bit of it into my work. I used an instax picture of our crazy foursome: Nula, Jaszmurka, Gunia and I. The colours are coming from beautiful October’s palette published on ILS blog.
