I’m interrupting the silence on this blog to share some exciting news with you!! Those of you who follow me on Instagram might already know it, but I thought I’d share here too..
I’m joining (or rather have joined, by now :D) the Felicity Jane creative media team! This really is a design team dream come true for me! (I really did do a happy dance when I got Jeana’s mail in my inbox, haha)
For those who don’t know Felicity Jane*, you’ve been missing out! Jeana, the genius behind FJ, creates absolutely gorgeous kits every month that are filled with exclusive papers, embellishments, stickers etc. They are usually a mix of black and white patterns (one can never have enough of those!!) and beautiful feminine, floral elements! And this month’s kit “Zoey” is no exception, but have a look for yourself here.
Aren’t those colours just scrumptuous?? Oh how I love the mix of black and white and those fun, bright colours – perfect for summer! (Although it doesn’t really feel like summer at all around here at the moment..) Here’s also a peek at what’s inside the kit. The paper pack is already sold out, but the kit is still available (but probably not for long because these go quick), so make sure to grab yours here 🙂
Or, if you want to see it “live”, you can watch the unboxing video here (I always love watching these kinds of videos – makes you feel like you are unpacking a box of happy mail yourself, haha 😀 )
I really can’t wait to finally get creating with this kit (it’s still on its way to me) and show you what I created! Hope you are excited, too!
Just wanted to pop in really quickly to share some exciting news with you all! A while ago Danielle from Creative Retreat had a design team call and I actually almost missed it! Just a few hours before the deadline I saw her post on IG (not sure how I could miss it before) and decided to give it a try since I’ve always loved seeing the kits she put together in the past.
Well, it actually took less than 24 hours until I heard back from Danielle saying that I had made it into the design team, yayy!! I’m really very excited and can’t wait for my first kit (the April kit) to arrive! I’ve already seen a photo of it but of course I can’t tell you what’s in it, yet 😉 The only thing I can actually tell you is that the colour scheme is perfect for spring!
And here is a picture of the DT announcement where you can see all the other talented girls that I’m on the team with.
The Creative Retreat kits are embellishment kits (so no paper – but that’s okay, I have plenty of that 😀 ) for traditional and pocket style scrapbooking. They always include some pieces from current collections, an exclusive clear stamp set and some exclusive die cuts and/or stickers that coordinate with the rest of the kit – so you get a nice mix of products.
Today the world’s biggest trade fair for the creative sector [that’s at least what their website claims] opens its doors in Frankfurt am Main and I will be there from today until Monday. The lovely Kimberly from HeroArts invited me to do a Make & Take at their booth to show what you can create with their pretty products and I couldn’t be more excited!!
To prepare the Make & Take, I already received some of their beautiful new stamps (and dies!) before and if you look closely, you can see the HeroArts products pile on my desk below.
So, if you should be at the CreativeWorld in Frankfurt on Saturday, Sunday and/or Monday, be sure to stop by the HeroArts booth at 4.2 E46 (Hall 4, 2nd floor, booth E46 – we are in the USA Pavillon) to say hi and craft with me 🙂
I really hope I can meet some of you in person there!!
Hey there! I’m happy you’ve found your way to my brand spanking new website! As I’ve already mentioned on Instagram, yesterday afternoon I decided that I’ve had enough of my Blogger hosted blog and that I was ready for something new. I’ve thought about migrating/changing to WordPress (the self-hosted WordPress.org, not to be confused with WordPress.com) for quite a while now but either just never had enough time or didn’t feel confident enough to do it (I really dreaded the whole importing my blogposts, comments and everything from Blogger to WordPress issue). Well, yesterday was THE day. So I’ve got myself a domain, registered with a webhost, set up a WordPress site and spent the whole night and today “designing” and tweeking it.
(The photo above actually shows what my desk looked like this morning: lots of coffee cups on the table and some more coffee in our new, bigger Chemex.)
Hey there! 🙂 Just quickly wanted to let you know that I’m finally having my scrapbooking flea market sale on Instagram.
You’ll find all the items, as well as the shipping info and how it all works over on the IG account that I set up for the sale. There are lots of papers, paper pads, stamps, etc. and some awesome mystery bags that are chock full!
If you have any questions, let me know in the comments here or on IG.
Hallo ihr Lieben! Ich wollte nur schnell Bescheid sagen, dass ich es nun endlich geschafft habe meinen kleinen Instagram Flohmarkt online zu stellen. Auf meinem IG account, den ich extra für den Sale habe (um nicht alle mit den Bildern vollzuspammen), findet ihr alles mögliche von Papieren, Paper Pads, Stempeln usw. bis hin zu randvoll gepackten Mystery Bags! 🙂 Solltet ihr Fragen haben, könnt ihr mir die gerne hier in den Kommentaren oder auf IG stellen 🙂
In my last post yesterday I already told you about a big secret I’ve been keeping for a while that I could finally share with you all today!
I am very excited to announce that I’m part of the new Gossamer Blue Design Team! This means that for the coming year I will be able to not only work with their beautiful kits and products, but also be part of such a wonderful team with so many inspiring and creative ladies!!
I was really really excited when I saw so many familiar faces on the new team – people I’ve already met in “real” life and also many others whose work I admire and follow on IG and through their blogs!
And here’s the incredible line-up (from top to bottom, left to right):
The Handmade Happy Mag is a free online magazine, where Claire features lots of projects from crafters all around the world and from various crafty fields (sewing, crocheting, paper crafts, etc.). This is the second edition of the summer mag, and there has also been a winter themed magazine.
Go check them all out here and be sure to leave some nice words on Claire’s blog 🙂
I made two new layouts and a little gift bag tutorial for the magazine, with the colour scheme in mind that Claire had sent me beforehand. But there are also a few of my “older” pages in there 🙂
So, grab a cup of coffee (or a glass of cold, fresh lemonade 😉 ) and get inspired!
Great news! The beautiful (and free!) online magazine called “Jot” just released issue #10 and they are celebrating their second birthday!!
Since there aren’t really many scrapbooking related paper magazines (none in Germany, at least – and I think the ones in the US are also slowly dying away..), I think it’s awesome that there is an online magazine dedicated completely to this beautiful hobby.
The new issue is full of inspiring projects of the Jot Girls, but also features layouts from scrapbookers around the world – including me (insert happy dance here)!
I am honoured that Kim picked two of my layouts to include them in this new issue, this one and that one. But of course you should go and have a look at the whole magazine! I mean, it’s for free, so why shouldn’t you? 😉
Psst.. there are even more great news that I’ll be able to share soon. Can’t wait!!
Welcome, to my new-ish and improved blogspace. I have been thinking about transitioning my blog from Blogger to WordPress for a while now, but just never had enough time to inform myself about all the pros and cons and how it works etc. I still haven’t, but I was craving some change. I wanted a fresh breath of air in my little corner of the internet.
It all started yesterday evening when I was just searching online for some WordPress templates to show S. what I had in mind for the new space.. and then one thing led to another and I ended up purchasing a really nice, minimal and clean Blogger template on Etsy. I know transitioning everything to WordPress and getting myself accustomed to it will take some time. Time I don’t have right now, so I thought it would be a good idea to compromise and kinda revamp the Blogger site a bit 🙂
I am by no means an expert on all of this (I guess many of you might have been able to change everything without buying a pre-made template, but I’m just not 😉 ) and there are still a few things that don’t look exactly like I want it, but for now I’m okay with that 🙂
So, what’s new/different?
Well, first of all I added this dropdown menu in the header section – where you can find my projects by project type. I also changed the header graphic a bit (it’s still not what I want it to be, but I’m no Photoshop Pro and still learning.. so that will have to do for now).
I also changed a few things in the sidebar. I added the Google+ button that leads you to my profile, cleaned up and rearranged the Design Team button section and added the “Search” section. Besides, you can also find the three most popular posts from the past 30 days a bit further down – so maybe you’ll see something that you missed? 😉
And finally I also moved the tag cloud down to the bottom of the whole blog. It’s sorted alphabetically, so you can find what you are looking for more easily.
I hope you like it as much as I do 🙂 Let me know if you encounter any broken links or anything else that doesn’t work the way it’s supposed to!
Hallo ihr Lieben, zuerst einmal wünsche ich euch einen schönen Sonntag und allen Müttern alles Liebe zum Muttertag 🙂 Passend zu diesem Tag, an dem ja meist vor allem Blumen verschenkt werden, gibt es heute auch eine blumige Ankündigung:
Die gesamte nächste Woche (außer Do.) wird bei Marjan aka The Scrappy Mermaid unter dem Thema “Flower Power” stehen. Und dazu hat sie sich vier Gastdesignerinnen auf ihren Blog eingeladen, die euch rund um dieses Thema inspirieren werden. Und, wer hätte es gedacht, wenn ich hier schon so eine Ankündigung mache: Ich bin eine davon 😉 Meinen Gastpost findet ihr schon morgen auf Marjan’s Blog.
Und hier gibt es auch schon ein paar Sneaks zu sehen, für das, was euch in der kommenden Woche erwartet 🙂 (vielleicht habt ihr ja auch schon eine Ahnung, was davon von mir ist? 😉 )
Hey y’all 🙂 First of all, let me wish you a nice Sunday and to all the mothers out there: Happy Mother’s Day! Today I wanted to share a small announcement. For the following week Marjan, aka The Scrappy Mermaid, invited four guest designers to her blog to inspire you all with projects for the topic “Flower Power”. I think this fits very well since now is THE season for beautiful flowers everywhere (and peony season just started – yes!!!). Tomorrow it’s already my turn to share my projects with you and above you can see a collage of some sneaks of the projects we all made for you! (maybe you can already guess which one(s) are from me? 😉 ) So, I hope you will check back tomorrow for my guest post on Marjan’s blog 🙂 (the post will be in German, but you can use a translator tool or just have a look at the pictures – most of the time that’s all you need to be inspired)
On this week’s Workspace Wednesday I’m not gonna share my actual current workspace with you (because honestly, it’s quite boring at the moment since I didn’t have much time to create anything in the past few days and the only thing you can see are just piles and piles of purged products).
But what I can show you today is something infinitely more exciting anyways!!
It’s an announcement that I had been waiting to be able to share for so long already!!
A few months ago the lovely Ana from Scrapddictes asked me if I wanted to contribute to an online workshop with the inspiring and incredibly talented Rut from Lovely Corner and I didn’t even have to think about it for a second! Of course I wanted to!
I’m very very grateful for the opportunity that they gave me and I enjoyed it quite a lot! I really hope that I’ll be able to do something like this again!
The workshop is available for purchase in the Scrapaddictes shop now and starts on May, 15th.The announcement photo already shows the colour scheme the projects we made were inspired by. Isn’t it absolutely lovely?
You can expect a variety of different projects, from mini albums to layouts etc. with lots of different techniques and tutorials! 🙂
I’m so so excited and I really hope that lots of you will be inspired to take the class 🙂
