Layout "Better than..." for the Prima-Ingvild Bolme Blog Hop

Hi there,

today I want to show you a layout I made for the Prima - Ingvild Bolme Blog Hop. You remember, every month the DT of Ingvild Bolme is showing projects with products from Ingvild on their blogs.

Today we want to show you some inspirations with Shabby Chic Treasures Metals from her new collection.

It's a layout about our summer holiday at the sea. The girls had a lot of fun at the beach and they made some mud-holes. You can imagine that these were "better than a bath tub"?! I used the Antique Tub on my layout, perfect to complement the title. The Shabby Chic Treasures Sea elements are so cute and I also added a Jeans Plate and Water Pipe Part to interpret the theme.

Layouts for Ingvild Bolme DT

Hi there,

I want to show you two layouts I made with beautiful things and embellishments designed by Ingvild Bolme.

First Layout "Moments" is a fantasy scene. The photo of my girls is from Autumn last year but the scene is a place we found in our summer vacation in italy. I sketched it and integrated the photo and embellishments from Ingvild. 

The little shabby chic mushroom became a fountain. And I added a shabby chic clock face and hands and a little junkyard finding as a doorknob.

My second layout "L is for Love" is a mixed media layout where I used structure paste and stamps on the patterned paper.

I used a beautiful shabby chic treasure flag from Ingvild on which I added a sentiment. You can also see a Junkyard Finding, a little metal trinket I added on the red heart.

I love the little bird houses and also the zipper and bulbs are versatile to use on projects.
The little paper rose is made from a Die from Sizzix.

Supplies from Ingvild I used:

Shabby Chic Resin Treasures Mushrooms - Item: 890766
Junkyard Findings Clock Faces - Item: 891596
Junkyard Findings Clock Hands - Item: 891589

Junkyard Findings Metal Trinket - Item: 891626

Hi my dear Blog Reader,

I want to show you the smallest ever mini album that I've ever created.
It's a Leporello from watercolor paper. I made it because I had incorrectly printed photos with a too small size. And since I am reluctant to put away anything, I made this little something.

I used watercolor paint and stamps from Wycinanka for the background. I decorated it with sticker and cut outs from Pink Paislee collection "Cottage Farms".

As Adhesive I used my fav E-Z Dots® Permanent - Refillable.

Have a nice day!

Card with Heart

Hi there,
I want to show you a card I made for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®

Actually I love to work with old vintage book pages. O love the grip and smell. For this card I also use old book pages and scraps, leftovers from pattern scrapbook paper. I added a bit vintage feeling with distress ink at the edges of the paper.

To adhere the scraps I used the pink E-Z Squares® Refillable.

My sewing machine created a little frame on the top paper.

Then I added my text (just a word sticker) and a handmade wire heart. Ready!

Thanks for visiting and have a nice day!

Material I used:
Adhesives from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®

E-Z Squares® Refillable 
Paper from Pink Paislee "Cottage Farms" and Prima Marketing "Delight Collection"
Old book pages
sewing machine
word sticker from Authentique "Celebrate"

Hallo Zusammen!

My dear english speaking friends, please use the translator today. Thank you! :-)

Heute gibt es mal einen Text auf Deutsch und ich freue mich darüber.
Meine knappe Zeit lässt es nicht zu auf Deutsch und Englisch zu schreiben und da ich englischsprachige Leser habe und dies die "Weltsprache" ist bleibt es meist beim Englischen. Und dies dann auch noch kurz und knapp.

Nun, heute ist es mal anders ;-) Heute ist Deutsch dran und ich laber etwas mehr ;-)!

Ich bekam vor 2 Tagen einen wunderschönen mail art - Brief von Anne Rehorn gefüllt mit wunderbaren Schnipseln aus ihrer Reste-Kiste. In diese greift sie ab und an, um kreativ zu sein und genau solche Kisten habe ich auch. Das nennt man wohl Seelen-Kreativ-Verwandtschaft? Was für eine Freude, ich liebe diese solche Überraschungen und konnte es kaum abwarten etwas mit ihnen zu machen.

Das bedeutete, dass ich mich noch am selben Abend, spät an den Tisch setzte und in nicht mal einer halben Stunde diese Ergebisse hatte. Ohne Plan, ganz intuitiv und selbstvergessen entstanden diese zwei Collagen.

Für diese collage habe ich nur Papiere und Reste von Anne verwendet.

 Bei dieser collage kamen ein paar kleinere Details und Schnipsel aus meiner Restekiste hinzu.

Ich weiss noch nicht genau wie ich diese weiter verwenden werde. Vielleicht wird es ein Minialbum oder aber ich rahme sie ein und sie ergeben eine neue Wanddeko für das Kinderzimmer...? Hm, mal überlegen...

Ich habe wirklich eine längere Liste an kreativen To Do's zum Abarbeiten und ich liebe jede einzelne Aufgabe. Aber es sind diese unvorhergesehenen Dinge, diese, die spontan inspirieren, die mich wirklich tief innen lächeln lassen und zu sofortigem Flow führen, die ich am allermeisten liebe! Anne lieben Dank nochmals!

Vielen Dank für's Lesen und ich wünsch Euch was!

Workshops at Version-Scrap Paris

Hi girls,

this is just a reminder of my classes at Version Scrap Paris at the 4-5th of April.And I will show you more sneaks about the Minialbums we will create there.

1) The first workshop is called "Romantic Flair" because of the loveliest paper collection I know. It's the "Cottage Farms" collection from Pink Paislee and we will create a Minialbum. The kit is so romantic and is filled with beautiful paper, sticker, cards, frames, Rub-ons...  Two hours full of fun!
Here you can book your class "Romantic Flair". 
More info on my blog.

2) The second workshop "Moments" is a mixed media mini album will be created based on a romantic chipboard-album from Wycinanka with different fabulous products from Faber Castell and stamps from Whiff of Joy. Three hours with mix and match.
Here you can book your class "Moments". 
More about this workshop.


3) The third workshop is called "Treasures" and we want to create something like this, a mixed media Minialbum in a sweet handy form. This workshop consists of two parts: a mixed media part (mixed media cover with handmade embellishments) and a scrapbooking part (combine the Minialbum and filling the pages). Two and a half hour to creat a little treasure.
Here you can book your class "Treasures".
