Coffee Lover

You know what the best smell in the world is? The smell of freshly ground coffee. That's exactly how my house smells every Saturday and Sunday morning. Little things like that make me happy :-)

Alex Gadji - #lovethesmell

I feel honored to be one of the girls who got a chance to design with the lovely flair from Toni From Designs. The Coffee Lover set was perfect for me! I am so happy that I got to know Toni on the Paper Issues team. I love her designs!

Alex Gadji - #lovethesmell closeup3

I have used the lovely Sycamore Lane collection from Elle's Studio. Sooooo pretty!

Alex Gadji - #lovethesmell closeup2

The flair above is my favorite! Ha! So true! LOL. I can't even imagine my life without coffee! I would probably still do stupid things, only slower and with constant migraines.

Do you, like I do, love flair? In that case, you have to visit Toni! Here is the set I got to work with. You'll find it and much, much more in her Etsy shop!

Alex Gadji - Rain, rain go away

I don't think I've blogged this one before, so here are a couple of close-ups.

I have used the Hello Sunshine collection from Pink Paislee.

I love this photo of my kids, watching the rain. This collection felt perfect here...

My Monkey

No, I don't have a cute, little pat from the jungle. By "my monkey", I mean my daughter. Sometimes, I don't even dare to watch her climb! She is fierce! (and she did not get that from me...)

Alex Gadji - My monkey 

I have used the South of Market collection from Studio Calico.

Alex Gadji - My monkey closeup4 

I punched out the circles from one of the patterned papers and placed them a little random over a simple, white cardstock. I also used the "negative strips" that were left over.

Alex Gadji - My monkey closeup3 

Acrylic, clear stars!!! Sigh!! So lovely!!

Alex Gadji - My monkey closeup2 

I placed small wooden sequins on top of the clear stars so I could hide 3d-dots under them.

Yep, that's my girl, my little monkey! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Shine Today

Hi there! Here comes a quick post about two cute, little cousins.

Alex Gadji - Shine Today 

I have used the Hello Today collection from Heidi Swapp. Love those acrylic hearts!

Alex Gadji - Shine Today closeup2 

Love anything acrylic, actually... Don't you? :-)

Acrylic and glitter... Sigh... Heidi Swapp knows how to make a girl happy!

Thanks for stopping by!

This is Us

The photos of all the four of us are so rare that they definitely deserve a layout.

Alex Gadji - This is us 2014

This one was taken a couple of months ago, on our vacation in beautiful Norway. I wish the kids were standing straight, smiling to the camera... but, no. That wouldn't be my kids :-) Our family portraits don't get better than this... lol

Alex Gadji - This is us 2014 closeup3

I have used the Hello Today collection by Heidi Swapp.

Alex Gadji - This is us 2014 closeup2

I suppose that these hearts were made to spray with Color Shine, but I love them just as they are: white, elegant, simple.

Alex Gadji - This is us 2014 closeup1

Every time I use these clear, plastic alphabets, I wish I knew how to use my sewing machine. They look so nice when sewed down. Glossy accent works fine though...

Thanks for stopping by!
