Sketch #31 and an announcement

Hello & happy Wednesday!
This is my 31's sketch for this blog, and this week it's been interpreted by Leonie and Jenny H - who both won a guest designer spot when I did the sketch challenge a while back.
Didn't they do a WONDERFUL job?! :D

Now - for the less fun news.
This will be the last sketch for a little while. The blog will be pretty silent for the rest of the year, most likely. I have stepped down from both my DT's temporarily and I felt that I have to give this a rest too. Nothing serious - I just have to take a vacation from all the scrappy responsibilities for a while.

I might sneak in a sketch or two somewhere, but if I do. it'll be a lot less scheduled.
See you when I get back!

Sketch #30

It's Wednesday again - and you aaall know what that means by now, right?
This week, the interpretation of my sketch is made bythe wickedly sweet & talented Anna.
Isn't it just soooooo cute?!

Visit her blog & leave some love, why don't you?
I promise - you're in for a treat!

Sketch #29

It's Wednesday again and the winter is nagging at our toes. Or at least mine.
I thought I'd have this week's chosen LO fit the theme of winter, cosiness and indoor warmth, by showing you this pretty interpretation by Johanna.
Doesn't it just make you wanna curl up in a blanket and light some candles?
Yes? Thought so. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Sketch #28

Another Wednesday - another SKETCH!
This week, I have got no less than three beautiful LOs from two amazing ladies: Maja (the first LO) and Lynlee (the two following)!
Lynlee said I could choose. She was way wrong. How could I ever?!
So I added both her LOs.

These ladies were both in my challenge a while back, and I asked if they'd like to make an LO for me.
They did - which made me VERY happy.

Thank you, gals!

Sketch #27

Happy hump day to you all!
Especially happy for me, because I have the honour of presenting a new designer for the blog! :) Her name is Anna and she's known in Sweden for being the queen of journaling, and for her amazing photos.
As you can see - she's an awesome scrapper!

Leave her some ♥ in her blog, won't ya?

Look here:

Sketch 19 is updated with another piece of art.
Isn't it great?!

Sketch #26

I know it's Thursday, buuuut - since I happened to get Tammy Tutterow to do not only one but TWO sketches for me, I decided to put them both up pretty immediately.
(Can you blame me?! *grins*)
That woman is wicked talented - just look how different this LO is from the former - and how it still has that elegant flow to it!
Tammy - you seriously ROCK!

Sketch #25

I'd like to start this Wednesday early (it's just past midnight in Sweden, but I'm too jittery about this to wait any longer!...) by welcoming a fantastic guest artist onto the blog.
You see - I've managed to get none other than one of my biggest idols, the great Tammy Tutterow to design from my sketches!
Imagine my surprise and pride, when my mail came back with a positive reply!

With a heartfelt THANK YOU to the wonderful Tammy, I give you all this week's sketch and the beautiful LO based on it.

Sketch #24

This week, I have fun news. My team of talented scrappers who design for me, has gotten an addition - and I'd like to present to you:

Isn't she amazingly talented?!
Leave her some ♥ on her blog, why don't you?

Ps. All my sketches are adaptable, and I encourage that. As you can see below, Johanna took my 12x12-sketch and made a lettersize LO. Brilliant!

måndag 29 september 2008


You know about that saying, that even the sun has its spots?
I'm not claining radiance and necessity like the sun, but I'm definitely having some spots.

You see - I accidentally scanned the same paper twice, giving the same sketches two different names. Way to go me, ey...? *blushes*

Now - I sent Amanda and Wendy a sketch each. Number 27 and 29.
Only... it was the same one.
Yep. I TOLD you I'm a clutz...!
So now, I've finally updated that post with Wendy's awesome LO too.

So sorry to keep you waiting, Wendy, dear!!

Ps. By the way, guys - since you're reading my blog, I am guessing you like sketches. How about doubles? And how about contests...? Check out the Papermaze blog (where Wendy designs - which is why I made the connection) for a contest you just miiiight enjoy... ;)

Sketch #23 - and the interpretations

First of all - I'd like to say THANK YOU to everyone who participated and who sent me kind notes regarding both this and my other (less fun) post, the other day.
You guys are the reason why I do this.

Second of all. I couldn't choose. No way! You're all so amazingly talented and each and every interpretation had it's own charm and personal touches that made the unique, special and oh so beautiful!

...so I decided to showcase them ALL!

You guys ROCK!
Thanks so much for playing along!

Ps. I'm sorry your names don't show up, but I didn't want to ruin your pictures with watermarks. If you click on a photo, you'll get to it's page, and the name of it's maker will be visible for you. Thanks!

Important message!

Unfortunately, it has been brought to my attention that people are still using my sketches for what they are not intended for.

Let me remind you:
My sketches are NOT to be used for DT-work, challenges, contests, applications or anything but your own pleasure and/or for this blog.
That is all, unless I have specifically given permission.
I also ask that you please give me credit when possible. It's really not that hard.

This includes, but is not limited to, the sketches on this blog. I still own the copyright to all of my sketches, even the ones that are older and/or have been used elsewhere.

Please, don't make me have to stop doing this.
I love sharing my sketches and I looooove seeing all the wonderful things that you make from them - but I don't appreciate seeing LOs that are distinctively and apparantly made from my sketches in places where they don't belong.

Thanks for reading.

Sketch #23 and a challenge

So, I've caught the flu and I'm too tired to organize this post.
Therefore, I am instead gonna let YOU do the job.

Here's what you do:
Use the following sketch.
Make a card, something altered or an LO with it.
When you save your picture, make sure you name it 50. yourname_LO/cardname.
For example, I'd name one 50. Zarah_Light of my Life.

MAIL your entry to me at inspirascrap[@]gmail.com before Sunday 11:59am PST (remove the brackets) and hold off posting it until I have gotten back to you.

Not only will I showcase some of the entries - I will also pick one (or more) people to be my guest designers.

Sound fun? Goodie!
Start creating!

Sketch #22

This week, the sketch is a bit more freestyle - or clean if you will. There's a lot of room for personal interpretation (which I absolutely love and encourage!) as you can also see from the lovely LOs - made by my dear, wickedly talented friends Annika (the first one) and Sofie (the second one - and by the way, Fiffi, I'm still not sure it's legal, being as beautiful as you are!!... *smiles*).

Hope you love the LOs as much as I do - and don't hesitate to leave the artists behind them some love!

Thanks for popping by!

A special sketch (#21)

A little while ago, I got this very sweet email from a super kind lady over at the Aussie shop & forum Country Papercraft. She asked me if they could use one of my sketches for their newsletter - and of course they could!
I actually thought they deserved a bit better than that - so I made a sketch for them, exclusively.

The newsletter (hey - start subbing - it's filled to the BRIM with awesome inspiration!! And check out that forum too, while you're at it!) is out now and I asked if I could show you all their amazing takes on the sketch on the blog, and they agreed!

So - this week's very special guest artists are the awesome Country Papercraft's Crew:
Michelle, Deb, Leonie and Lynlee!

Thanks for scrapping my sketch! I am honoured!

Sketch #20

Number twenty... Already! WOW!

This time, the guest designer, who made the beautiful LO Nocturne, is the sweet & talented Evelina/Wih.
Leave her some love! :D

LO #2 is my own.

Sketch #19

Wednesday - and the sketch is here!

This week, the talented designer guesting the blog is the very talented AnnaG - you can see her gorgeous card below. Drop into her blog and be amazed - she rocks!
I've also have the honour of presenting an LO by the wickedly great scrapper Vicki. Her LO is below too.
Thanks a bunch, girls - for helping me with this sketch! :D

I'd also like to thank everybody who leaves kind comments and supports this blog, my sketches and the designers' work. You're the ones that make this fun. Thanks!

Sketch #18

We're back on track - Wednesday's sketchiness has arrived!

This week, the interpretations of the sketch is a super cute card made by the lovely Amanda and a super pretty LO by sweet Wendy!
Don't forget to check the blogs of the wonderful contributors and leave them some well deserved love!

lördag 9 augusti 2008


As of this week, I will no longer have time to update this blog twice a week - and just because I never wanted to be of the convenient sort (who'd update in the weekends, like every normal person) I've decided to stick with Wednesdays!

Therefore, there's no new sketch coming up today - sorry about that, I should have informed earlier, but time escaped in a very tricky way.

Hope y'all love me anyways?! ;)

Sketch #17

Think I'm a day too early?
I'm not, really. It's past midnight in Sweden and I went to bed 3 hours ago.
At least that was my intention. Somehow, I ended up on an extended bloghop instead and, well... I might just spoil you with this Wednesday's sketch being a bit ahead of time!

The LO, this time, is made by the very talented Monique! TFS! :D

lördag 2 augusti 2008

Sketch #16

Saturday - and lots of time to scrap. I guarantee that you'll be inspired and amazed by this great LO, provided by Pam!
Hopefully you'll like the sketch too.
Have a good day!

Sketch #15

Today, we're celebrating the fact that we're halfway to the weekend with this awesome LO by Amanda - and my sketch that it's based on.

Hope you love it as much as I do - and leave Amanda some love, why don't you?

Ps. Check out the added LOs on sketch 3 and sketch 9 too!

Feel free to share what you've made from my sketches - don't forget to tell WHICH sketch it was, and please link back here.

Also - for my pending designers - please don't upload anything that hasn't yet been shown here.

Sketch #14

Finally weekend...!
I hope you've all had a happy scrappy week - and that you're now back with loaded batteries and lots of mojo - because I have a new sketch to show you.

This time, there are two interpretations.
The LO is made by the insanely talented, wonderful Fiffi - and the card is made by me.
(The stamp is drawn by Nina. Isn't she aswesome?)

Hope you like them!
