Dream Layout - Special Guest Designer - Anna-Karin Evaldsson

Hello Everyone

We have a super duper Special Guest Designer today and she is an amazingly talented lady and super nice lady too...a warm welcome to Anna-Karin Evaldsson.

Hello! I am Anna-Karin and I live in Stockholm, Sweden. I have two boys who often join me in my studio, although the little one is still too small to stamp. I have been doing arts and crafts my whole life. After starting to make cards in 2002, I began to scrapbook two years later. I had found my home among paper, stamps, ink, paint, dies, photographs and embellishments. My hands are ink stained almost daily and I enjoy switching between different projects: cards, tags, mini-books, art journaling, layouts, canvases and 3-D/home décor. 

I love trying out new and old techniques and many of my projects have mixed-media elements. Building scenes, playing with texture and colour are some of my favourite things. It is wonderful to think about everything you can create with just paint and a white sheet of paper. Every project is a creative adventure and the possibilities are truly endless.  You can find me at my blog:, and there you will also find links to my YouTube channel and other social media.

Anna-Karin created this gorgeous page for this challenge.

I am so happy to be a guest designer at Berry71Bleu today and I loved the gorgeous March mood board, perfect for spring. It has been some time since I scrapped older photos, and for this layout I used a school photo of myself. At the time, I really disliked this particular photo, although now, I can’t even remember why. Because of that reason, I thought it fit well together with the great sentiment on the mood board, which I stamped as my journaling next to the photo. 

I took some step photos when I made my layout, you can find them on my blog, if you want to read more about it: 

This page is absolutely delightful and beautiful, thanks ever so much Anna-Karin for creating it for this challenge at Berry71Bleu.

Please pop over to Anna-Karin's blog to see more of her beautiful and inspiring work! ;-)

Here's a reminder of the soft and gorgeous mood board.
