Vacation!

Wohoo, I'll be leaving for a vacation tomorrow for a week! :) I'll be going to the city of Gdansk in Poland with a friend of mine and it'll be great! It's a beautiful old city with lots to see and cuz it's quite cheap there we'll also be doing some shopping. The city is located by the Baltic Sea so if the weather is good we'll also be able to enjoy the long white beaches there. Yay, can't wait! Anyway, I've just got to show you these cute cotton pad alphas that I re-released on Thursday before I'll leave. (The images are clickable.)





They are quite funky and really fun to use as you can see from these fab LOs by Jacque and Daniela. They're also available as a bundle for a lower price if you'd like to have them all.





I also finished scrapping a LO I started already weeks ago. Credits here.



And, still one more fun thing.. I got tagged for the first time by a fellow Finnish scrapper, JohannaL. I think she's the third Finnish digiscrapper I've come across since I started digiscrapping so there really isn't that many of us.

Anyway, here's the rules:
  1. Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
  2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
  3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blog.
  4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
And here's my 7 random facts
  1. My family had to move a lot when I was a kid and so I lived in 15 different cities and places before I turned seven.
  2. I know how to milk a cow.
  3. I LOVE ice cream and I can eat half a liter of it any time. 
  4. I hate washing dishes. Sometimes the dirty dishes can lie in the sink for a week before I wash them..
  5. I love all different types of music from British pop to traditional African music and even some heavy metal.
  6. I have a university degree in Maths even though I hardly understood anything that was taught.. ;)
  7. I LOVE travelling and I've travelled to 17 countries (will be 18 next week). I've also lived in Norway, England and Swaziland in addition to living in Finland.
I'm not going to tag anybody as I think pretty much all the people I would tag have done this already. But, if you're reading this and haven't done this yet, concider yourself as tagged.. ;) Ok, I'm off to sleep and then for a holiday! Have a nice time while I'm gone and see ya when I get back!

Boyish Charm for Father's Day

Yay, I've got a new kit for you, especially those of you who've got boys.. And I didn't even realize it's Father's Day in June in most of the world when I created this kit cuz in my part of the word we celebrate Father's Day in November. But, I guess the timing couldn't have been better for this kit as it's great for masculine layouts. And, as you can see from my CT LOs a bit further down, it suits scrapping girls as well. :)

So, here's the kit, Boyish Charm, available at TDC.



I also created this great acrylic alpha to go with it. It's my first ever acrylic alpha but I think it turned out pretty good. At least I like it and I think I'm going to be using it quite a lot in the future.. ;)



Here's some beautiful LOs by my awesome CT members, Daniela, Re, Britt and Kris, using the kit.



And here's my take on the kit. This LO was even chosen for Gallery Standouts yesterday. It was the first time ever my LO has been featured there and I think I'm still a bit in a shock.. ;) Credits here.



Hmm, and cuz I didn't post my new products last week, I'm going to show them to you now before you scroll to the end of this post and maybe find a little surprise.. ;)

These fun Transparent Bracket Mats are great for matting your photos and adding something extra to your LOs.



This Basic Black Alpha has a beautiful folded texture and can be used on lots of different LOs. It's easy to recolor as well.



And these Ring Ribbons are great for fastening things or hanging embellishments from them. They have a very realistic look so I'm sure you'll like them.



Ok, here's a little something for you as a thank you for coming to my poor blog! ;) It's and add-on for the Boyish Charm kit. Hope you like it and I'd love to see what you come up with it!

Sorry, the link is gone. Thanks to everyone for your interest in the freebie! :)
