My final LLC DT post- January challenge

Happy New Year my dear friends and followers!
I hope you had a wonderful celebration last night, and that you welcome the new year with all its possibilities! 

I have had to make some changes recently, and one of them, sadly, is that I'm leaving the LLC DT. I love  the sweet and talented Sandra and her wonderful team of lovely ladies, and I had so much fun being on her crew! So thank you Becky, Tina, Elin, Karita and my dear sweet Sandra! Now that I'm stepping down the Sandra has included two new, very talented team-members, Tracy and Louise. I love their work as well ass the rest of the team's gorgeous creations, so I am looking forward to following the blog and indulging in the LLC store in the future!
Thank you so much for having me!

Now on to the first  LLC challenge of the year:


A perfect theme for a vintage- lover like me! I made this calender as a gift for one of my sisters for Christmas. Real "old" style all the way. I hope you like it!

I used Pion Design Papers from two different collections: Children from the Grandmas Schoolbook collection and Blue Pansy 6x6 from the For Mother collection. The image is also from Pion Design's Grandmas schoolbook collection: Little sweeties. The punch I used around the edges is from Martha Steward, The calendar sheets are from Papirdesign. The clips are from my stash- bought them years ago. I used a paper doily, some corrugated cardboard, and a sheet from an old book. All edges are distressed with Tim Holtz distress ink- vintage photo. I used my sewing machine along the edges of the design papers. The flowers are WOC roses and Kort og Godt rolled roses- cream with a pearl in the middle.

 I used the gorgeous Shabby seam binding, storm clouds and the vanilla cream, the heart is one of the newbies in the LLC store: Bark hearts- beautiful aren't they?! I used the 

Pop over to the LLC blog to see the gorgeous creations of the brand new DT, and our talented guest designers, they will give you lots of inspiration to create something old for this months fab challenge!

See you ladies!

Hej Vännen,
Fantastiskt vacker kreation med ljuvliga detaljer i underbar “Elizabeth-vintage stil”. Det var roligt att du valde att avsluta just med en vintage bild efter alla dessa Magnolia projekt, men som du vet så tycker jag att allt du gör är underbart vackert, och jag saknar dig redan trots att det gått mindre än en vecka sedan du officiellt lämnade FB gruppen. :-( Men det ska bli roligt att följa dig under detta nya år, och jag kommer att försöka titta in hos dig så ofta det bara går.

Ha det gott!

Många kramar,
