Lasting Memories GDT: Kälbchen füttern

Wooho! I was asked, to be a guest designer at Lasting memories in august -  and I happily agreed! Thank you Lori,  for inviting me to join in, again!
This month, the theme is : "All About Animals" - include an animal somewhere on your layout - it can be in the photos, a sticker/embellishment, patterned paper, etc.

And the first challenge is:  On The Farm (cow, horse, sheep, pig, chicken, etc)

I decided to scrap these pictures from our holiday in France / Elsass last year. The kids loved the little calves! 
As background for my double-paged layout, I used some older patterned papers from my stash. The one white with black scripture and the other black with white scripture. I both grounded with white gesso. Then I splattered some pink and turquoise colors on it. With my cameo, I cut out a funny circle-background and backed some of the circles with colorful papers. The words (smoothie shoppe) are cut out with my cameo and boarded with a black fineliner.

Some close ups from the pages:

thanks for your visit today!

Happy time

Hello scrappy friends! Today, I'm sharing a layout, I did for the 123-challenge:

I used the words "happy time" as inspiration for my background design. I stamped the words on blue cardstock and colored some words with pink and silver. I splodged some pink and blue shimmer spray from Heidi Swapp on my white cardstock. First, I wanted to stitch two circles on the left and right, but then, I found a stencil from scrapmats, that I won in april with the csi-challenges. I used silver shimmer paste to create these rays with the stencil. For decoration, I stamped some Hibiskus from SF-Stamps, colored them with liquid pearls (Ranger) and fuzzy cut them out.

thank you for your visit today!

8x8 Schoko-Pudding

This month, I am a guest designer at Lasting Memories and for the last challenge, I did an 8x8-layout and I had really much fun with it. So I decided, to create a second one and take part at the challenge ;-)

I took some old papers from my stash and a cut file from just nick. I love the flowers, cause they are looking like child's drawing. I backed them with papers from the same paper pack and added some alpha-stickers to create my title.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hallo! Heute gibt es ein Layout, das ich für Scrapbook Forever und die aktuelle Challenge von CSI- color stories inspiration gemacht habe. 
Es ist wirklich schlimm, aber ich brauche inzwischen diese challenges, um eine Idee zu bekommen, wie ich mein Layout gestalte! Es ist sooo viel einfacher, wenn einem gesagt wird, welche Farbe oder Technik oder Verzierung man verwenden soll. Dann muss man selbst nicht mehr so viel denken ;-)

Today, I share a Layout, that I created for Scrapbook Forever and for the actual challenge of CSI - color stories inspiration.
I really need these challenges to get my ideas! And this assignment this month really challenges me, cause orange and yellow are not my favourite colors ;-) But I like how it turns out! 

Auf den weißen Cardstock habe ich mit den Distress inks und einem blending Tool orange, gelbe und blaue Flecken gewischt. Die Klekse in der passenden Farbe habe ich mit Wasserfarbe und Twinklings H2O gespritzt. Als Dekoration habe ich verschiedene Stempel verwendet (sie Sonne ist von Tim Holtz, die Schnörkel sind SF-Stamps, das Blumenbouquet auch - ich habe es mit Distress crayons coloriert und dann ausgeschnitten). 

I issued distress inks in orange, yellow, blue and turquoise with a blending tool onto my white background. Than I splatted some similar colors with watercolor and twinklings H2O. The stamps I used for my decoration are from Tim Holtz and SF-Stamps (swirls and flowers).
From the evidence, I used: flowers - sun - stamps 
From the testimony, I used: make your story meander around (I wrote with a yellow pen, you can hardly see it on the photo...)

Thank your for stopping by!

lasting memories GDT : Schuhe putzen

Today, the last july-challenge of Lasting Memories goes online!

The challenge is:
Go on a scrappy adventure - document a layout in a size outside your normal use. Show us your mini-album, traveler's notebook, custom pocket page, or if you normally scrap 12x12 you can make an 8.5x11, etc.

I did an 8x8 layout! It's a long time ago, I did my last 8x8 layout. And it was really fun, to use such a small size of paper! The title means: cleaning shoes for Santa Claus. On 6th of December, we put some shoes in front of the door, that Santa Claus fills with sweets and small presents. 

Thanks for stopping by today!

CUYL - Yummy rosa Donuts

Es ist Samstag und es ist wieder Zeit für eine neue Aufgabe bei Challenge up your life
Heute geht es um das Thema: # 71: Essen und Lebensmittel 

Ich dachte sofort an die Fotos aus unserem letzten Urlaub, als es zum Frühstück mal wieder die heiß begehrten rosa Donuts gab. Den Hintergrund habe ich aus weißem Carstock und einem breiten Streifen pink-gestreiftem Papier gestaltet. Die Donuts sind eine gratis-print&cut- Datei aus dem Silhouette-Store. Ich habe sie in verschiedenen Größen ausgedruckt und ausgeschnitten. Die Donut-Bordüre und die Aufkleber sind aus dem Set "happy life". 
Und jetzt lass uns sehen, was du aus dem Thema machst!

yeah, it's saturday and time for a new challenge at challenge up your life
The theme is: #71 Food  

I scrapped some pictures from our last vacation. There we had sometimes yummy pink donuts - the kids loved them! I created my background with white cardstock and a big stripe of pink-striped paper. The donuts are a free-print&cut-file from the silhouette-store. I printed them in different sizes and cut them out. The donut-border and the stickers are from the set "happy life".  
And now: let us see, what you create!

Danke für deinen Besuch!

Hello scrappy friends! It's sunday again and its time for the new challenge at Lasting Memories!

This is the new assignment:

Use a BIG title to document your BIG adventure!

I choosed a black cardstock as my background. I really love big titles and cut files from the cut shoppe. So, I decided to use this beautiful file and a woodgrain paper to cut it out. The letters are backed with colorful patterned paper from my stash. For the decoration, I used framelits and my big shot, stamps, twine, wooden embellishments and some selfmade embellishments, that I did with my cameo.

Scrapbook Forever: Augenblicke

Heute zeige ich euch mal wieder ein Layout, das ich für Scrapbook Forever gestaltet habe:
Als Hintergrund habe ich cremefarbenen Cardstock verwendet. Die Fotos haben einen dunkelbraunen Rahmen erhalten. Nachdem ich die Fotos aufgeklebt hatte, habe ich um die Fotos die Worte aus dem Set "die Seele baumeln lassen" gestempelt. Die Palme habe ich auf weiteren cremefarbenen Cardstock gestempelt (braun und dunkelgrün) mit der Schere ausgeschnitten und aufgeklebt. Dahinter habe ich die "Sonne" aus dem Set "schön, dass es dich gibt" gestempelt. Die Hibiskusblüten habe ich mit distress crayons coloriert und ebenfalls ausgeschnitten. 

Noch ein Blick ins Detail. Hier sieht man auch, dass ich die Mitte der Blume noch mit Stickels zum Glitzern gebracht habe.

Danke für deinen Besuch!

Today, I wanted to try an other style. A little bit more shabby and with more stamps.
In addition to this, I was inspired by the challenge of csi - color stories inspiration. I love these challenges! First, I thought, they are too difficult, but now, I really love them!

I used these items: book pages - flowers - cursive font - watercolor

I was inspired by the words: hello, happiness, relax: I choosed sightseeing pictures from our trip to Sirmione. It was a happy and relaxing journey.

Thanks for stopping by today!

lasting memories GDT: Go see do

Hello scrappy friends! This month, I dare to be a guest designer at Lasting memories. Today, the challenge is:  

Show us your 4th of July adventure! If you didn't have an adventurous American holiday, or are not American, then show some red, white, and blue ,or add  some sparkle to your layout!

I'm not American, so I used the colors red, blue and white and did a vacation layout. The cut files are from just nick (the background and the words). I backed the letters with vellum, that I half coloured with red watercolour. I love, how the words are coming out!

Thanks for stopping by!

challenge up your life: mer

Hallo zusammen! Heute gibt es wieder eine neue Aufgabe bei Challenge up your life
Ein total cooles Moodboard! So schöne Farben!

Hi scrappy friends! Today, there is a new challenge at challenge up your life -blog! 
It's a really cool moodboard with such pretty colors!

 Ich hatte natürlich sofort Lust, ein Strandlayout zu kreieren! Die Basis ist ein weißer Cardstock und als Hintergrund habe ich Cardstocks in verschiedenen Blautönen ausgewählt, die ich unten abgerissen habe. Sieht ein bisschen aus wie Wellen, findet ihr nicht? Für die Muscheln habe ich mal wieder meine Lieblingsstempel von Scrapbook Forever verwendet.... und als kleiner Gimmik habe ich einen Seestern rot gestempelt ;-).
Die weiteren Embellis sind aus dem Set "vue sur mer" von toga.

When I saw this moodboard, I couldn't stand to create a beachy layout! It based on a white background and several blue cardstock, that I teared. It looks a little bit like waves, doesn't it? The seashells are my favourite stamps from Scrapbook Forever, again... and as a little joke, I stamped one of the starfishes red ;-). The other embellishments are from the set "vue sur mer" from toga.

Danke für deinen Besuch!
Thank you for your visit!

exotischer Besuch II

Today I was inspired by the challenge of off the rail scrapbooking. The assignment this month is this moodboard:
I have never been in Africa but last year in denmark, we met an elephant at our parking lot. Certainly I had to take some pictures and now they are perfect for this challenge!

In addition to this, I used the actual sketch from creative scrappers:

And this is my layout. I love the orange splotches and the feathers!

Thank you for your visit today!

 This month, I found an inspiring challenge at more than words

I think it matched very well with the sketch!
