Layouts, Scrapbooking

Fresh & Clean Layouts with the [Gossamer Blue] February Kits.

(This post should have gone live yesterday already but for some reason it didn’t and since I’ve spent the whole day at the PaperWorld/CreativeWorld exhibition in Frankfurt, I couldn’t get it up until now)

How can it be February already?! I mean, where has January gone?

I’m not too sad that it is February already though. I mean, it’s the month of S. and my birthday, we get to travel to Barcelona again (finally!!!) and it marks the beginning of a new stage of my life!! As you might know, I’ve been doing my teacher training to get my Second State Examination (2. Staatsexamen) and on January 31st I finally finished it!

You might think that I’ll now be working as a “normal” teacher and you are absolutely… WRONG! Without going into too much detail and summing it up quickly: I and therefore also my dreams/goals/expectations for what I want my life to look like have changed and now I don’t want to work as a teacher anymore. It didn’t have anything to do with the students or that I didn’t enjoy teaching them, I really liked my classes (Hey there if anyone of you is reading 😉 ) and it was also a bit of a sad goodbye, it’s just that things have changed and I want to go a different path now.

Wow.. the Gossamer Blue February kit reveal just got really serious 😀

(I will write a bit more about my dreams, goals and plans for the next year(s) in a week-ish here. I will take some time on my birthday to reflect on all of that because in the past almost two years I didn’t really have time for any of that)

But now on to something else: the Gossamer Blue February kits!

Today I’ll just show you two layouts I’ve made with them. I also started doing Project Life (again..) and this time I feel that I’ve finally found the right format for me which makes me quite excited!! Especially because now I’ll have a good use for all of the pretty Life Pages cards from my Gossamer Blue kits – and this month’s might just be my favourite EVER! It’s the first month that I liked the Life Pages kit and add-ons even more that the Scrapbooking kit!

But I haven’t had time to print my photos for January yet, so I’ll make sure to show you my LP pages once they are complete 🙂

There isn’t much to tell about the photo/layout above. I took the photo in a really pretty store in Berlin and just really liked it so I had to scrap it 😉

And here’s the second one, about one of my favourite things in the world:

I was a bit impatient with doing the stitching on this LO so the mist (Heidi Swapp Color Shine – black) hadn’t fully dried.. But oh well, I guess there are worse things in life than a few paint smudges on a LO 😉

    Wow, ich habe mir schon soooo lange vorgenommen, endlich wieder mein Scrapbook weiterzuführen. Immer wenn ich deine Bilder sehe, denke ich wieder daran. Jetzt schalte ich den Laptop dann gleich aus und mache mich an die Arbeit!:)
    Ich finde spannend, was du über deine Ausbildung geschrieben hast. Mir geht es nämlich auch ein bisschen so. Nicht dass ich etwas ganz anderes machen möchte – dafür mag ich den Job zu sehr – aber ich möchte etwas anderes zur Abwechslung machen. Mich würde sehr interessieren, was deine neuen Pläne sind. Aber ich nehme an, wenn du mehr verraten möchtest, hättest du das schon im Post geschrieben.:)
