    Mix & Match it Up with Crate Paper’s Gather Collection [Vacation Edition].

    After a bit of a scrapbooking hiatus, I finally felt inspired and sat down to make some layouts again two weeks ago. And I have to be honest: I’m really, really happy with the results 🙂

    Working with the gorgeous Gather collection by Maggie Holmes/Crate Paper and some bits and pieces from other recent collections made it a lot easier. I really like the soft colours and the patterns in this collection and I have almost used up all of the papers I have of it, so I think that really is a success! While until not too long ago I still had some things in my stash that I used to hoard, waiting for the “right” project to come along to use them on, I have finally overcome this thinking and just use what I have and love!

    But I don’t want to talk too much since this post will be quite picture-heavy. So without further ado, here are (some of) the projects that I made recently. I would love to hear how you like them!

    (I’ve also divided it up into several posts because there are just too many to share in one go – so I call this one the “vacation edition” 🙂 and looking at all of these summer-y layouts, makes me really wish it was warmer outside!)

    BCN by ScatteredConfetti BCN by ScatteredConfetti

    Of course this first layout is one of my favourites – it includes a photo of one of my absolute favourite corners in my favourite city in the whole wide world + lots of white space + florals + black and white patterned paper + gold details. Not sure how I could now love that 😀 For the title I just cut up this patterned paper from the Gather collection by Maggie Holmes/Crate Paper <3

    This second layout is a perfect example (in my opinion) for how mixing and matching different collections (even from different brands) can work out perfectly! The papers are from the Gather collection, the wood veneer pieces from the Gossamer Blue October kits, the white thickers word from American Crafts/Amy Tangerine’s “Oh Happy Life”, the floral and chipboard stickers from Dear Lizzy’s “Saturday” and the golden rub-ons from the Pebbles/Jen Hadfield’s “Warm & Cozy” collection. Each collection taken on its own has a very different look and feel to it than the others, but single bits of them combined can work together beautifully!

    The next two layouts are also an example of mixing and matching collections (actually the same ones as I’ve just mentioned + Shimelle’s “Go Now Go”):

    Beautiful by ScatteredConfetti Beautiful by ScatteredConfetti Adventure by ScatteredConfetti

    On the first and last layout I also tried to incorporate some mixed media elements (okay, just one – gesso) and I’m really liking the look of it. I really want to do more of that on my future projects!

    Alright, that’s it for today! I hope you like the layouts and maybe feel inspired to mix and match some of the collections in your stash!

    Have a nice weekend! 🙂

    Trying Something Different with the [Gossamer Blue October Kits].

    Hey there 🙂 Today is the first of October and this means today is also reveal day over at Gossamer Blue!! The October kits are filled with pretty products, lots of florals and gorgeous colours. I especially love all of the pieces from the Crate Paper “Gather” collection (by Maggie Holmes) in there!

    To be honest, when I unpacked my kits, I wasn’t all too excited about the pieces from the new Amy Tangerine “Oh Happy Life” collection, however. It’s not that this collection isn’t good, it’s just that it’s not very “me”. The colours are a bit too bright and bold for my taste and I’m not very into the colour combos and the patterns. So I was a bit hesitant about using those papers and embellishments and first stuck to all the pretty things from the “Gather” collection 😀

    Although when I was finished with my projects for the October kits (9 layouts and 1 gift set with two boxes, a card and an envelope. let me repeat, NINE layouts! I haven’t done this many with one kit in a very long time, so this shows that the kits are really good!) and looked through them again, I realised that actually half of the layouts were made almost entirely with stuff from the Amy Tangerine line!! And the interesting thing is that they still feel “me”. Maybe not as much as the other ones (I mean I’m still not really convinced by one or two of them) but I still managed to make something with it that I do like. And it pushed me to try out something different. Nothing revolutionary or super exciting, just little things like using clear stickers layered beneath my patterned paper or a new (for me) colour combo like green + yellow..

    Home. Home.

    I’m always really inspired by Suse Fish (one of my all-time favourite scrappers. everything she touches is just pure gorgeousness #fangirl). I love when she incorporates some mixed media touches into her layouts and they still feel really soft and light, like this one here. So I wanted to try my hand at making a layout like this, too.. well, the result is the above layout. I’m still not really sure what to think about it. I’m a bit torn. I like the texture but I’m not convinced of the yellow watercolour.. but maybe it’s just because there are quite a lot of “non-me” elements, like the colour combo.. I don’t know. What do you think?

    Although the colour combo itself really does work when I look at this layout:

    Moments. Moments.

    I’m a bit in love with this cute little dear epoxy sticker <3 and that leaf wood veneer piece!

    Anyways, I’ll stop rambling now and just show you the rest of my layouts so you can make up your own mind about how much “me” they feel to you 😉

    Beautiful Day.

    I’m really really happy that I finally have some new photos I can use for my layouts and even more so that quite a lot of them are actually good photos of me! S. really has stepped up his photography game (after enough whining and complaining from my side 😀 )

    The one I used on the layout below is one of my absolute favourite photos he took. It’s not posed, just a genuine shot (and my hair looks good, haha).

    Remember.

    And here’s the last layout of the “trying something different” group 😉  ..I’m still not too sure about this layout. However, when I flipped through my album to show S. the layouts I made with the kits, he said that this was one of his favourites. So yeah, I guess beauty really is in the eye of the beholder 😉

    Sweet Things. Sweet Things.

    I’d love to know what you think about these layouts and which one is your favourite. I’d say mine is the second one, but probably because it feels most typically me.

    I’ll show you more of my projects in the next few days (and I’m almost certain that I will make even more with these kits. Maybe until I have nothing left but scraps 😉 ) and I am really excited about those that I haven’t shown you yet 😉

    Have a great weekend, guys! 🙂

    Interrupting the Silence for Some Gossamer Blue [September kits] projects.

    Chirp, chirp, chirp… yeah, sorry. That’s the only thing that you could “hear” around here in the past few weeks.. Things just got a bit too much. While almost everyone at work was on vacation somewhere nice, I stayed where I was and held the line 😉

    But now things are finally getting back to normal and I’m about to head out to the Costa Brava for a week with S. to relax and regenerate a bit. But before I leave, I want to show you some of the projects that I’ve made with the super pretty (and jam-packed) Gossamer Blue September kits.

    The kits contain a lot of Crate Paper’s “Cute Girl” collection, the We R Memory Keepers “Urban Chic” line and “Take Me Away” by Paige Evans for Pink Paislee. Especially the Scrapbooking kits and add-ons have a very girly, cutesy vibe – which I like but which made it a little difficult for me to make some projects since I don’t have any kids and the colours/patterns don’t fit most of my photos too well.

    Enzo Layout - ScatteredConfetti

    This one of Enzo, a friend’s golden retriever that I dog-sitted for almost two weeks in July, was perfect for the papers since the photo contains some pink as well. I’m really happy with how the layout turned out although I couldn’t add any sewing machine stitching because it broke down on me while I was working on these projects ..Buh!!

    Enzo Layout - ScatteredConfetti

    This next layout was made with the Life Pages main kit which has more fall-ish colours and I am absolutely in love with them!

    Everyday Layout - ScatteredConfettiEveryday Layout - ScatteredConfetti
    Instead of patterned paper I used two of the Life Pages cards behind the photo. Because I didn’t want to mess up the clean and simple look of the page (and because I don’t like my handwriting), I added some journaling on one of the cards and tucked it behind the photo and the other card.

    So that’s it for now. I have quite a few more projects to share with you and I’m quite excited about them because they are “different” from my other projects and you will see why 😉

    Psst, if you follow me on Instagram, you might be able to guess what the difference could be 😉

    Three Very Different Layouts with the [Gossamer Blue] June Kits.

    Hey there 🙂 It’s the first of June (WHAT?!) and that means today is reveal day over at Gossamer Blue. And let me tell you this: the June kits are really fun! I loved playing with them because they are full of bright, cheerful colours and patterns that make you excited for summer to come!

     

    So, here are just a few of the projects I’ve made with them 🙂 The following three layouts are actually quite different from each other (at least in my mind 😉 )

     

    This first one is my favourite of all three:

    Favourite Café Layout by ScatteredConfetti. For this layout I handcut the flowers from this patterned paper by Simple Stories and I really love how it turned out! I’m actually quite proud of myself for finishing it (eventhough it’s not that big of a piece of paper) because when it comes to tedious things like that, I’m really not the most patient person on earth 😉

    To make the flowers really pop, I didn’t add any other patterned paper. Just some embellishments here and there and a tag behind the photo with some hidden journaling.

    Favourite Café Layout by ScatteredConfetti.

    This second layout is a bit of the opposite of the first one because this didn’t really turn out the way I had envisioned it.. I pushed those little squares around for what seemed like an eternity but was never really happy with it. Until I decided to just finally glue them down and finish it.. Maybe it will grow on me, who knows 😉

    Good Life Layout by ScatteredConfetti.

    fw gggGood Life Layout by ScatteredConfetti.

    This last layout might look familiar to you because I’ve already made two that are quite similar (here and here). In the Life Pages Main Kit there is always a card with the name of the month on it and I like to use that together with some others to make a layout to document that month. Of course the journaling is still missing because I don’t know (everything) that is going to happen in June, yet 😉

    June Layout by ScatteredConfetti.

    I also used lots of the stamps from the Life Pages Main Kit on that layout. I stamped, heat embossed (with white embossing powder) and then handcut the “Hello” phrase and also added some stamping on the lower right journaling card. They just fit perfectly 🙂

    June Layout by ScatteredConfetti.

    What I especially like about this last layout is the colour scheme. I don’t often use navy blue in my projects and definitely not together with yellow and light pink but I’ve got to admit: they look great together! What do you think?

    I’d love to know which of these layouts you like the most! My favourite is definitely the first one 🙂

    A Layout for [LoraBailora]’s ColorCombo Challenge.

    Hey there! 🙂 Today I have a treat for you! LoraBailora is hosting another scrapbooking challenge, and this time it is a Color Combo challenge which means you can create anything you want (card, layout, mini album, …) as long as it is inspired by the following mood board:

    lorabailora_colorcombo_reto_scrapbooking_challenge

    I think the colours look absolutely fantastic and are perfect for spring! And I think the bright and cheerful pink and orange fit the LoraBailora products just perfectly – so it was no surprise that I found some products to make my layout with in no time 🙂

    And here it is:

     

    Awesome by ScatteredConfetti.

    It is a little bit different from my usual style (although I feel that it has changed quite a bit in the past few months) because there is no patterned paper (I used washi tape instead) and actually quite a lot of embellishments (I went a bit crazy with the enamel shapes 😀 ) ..but there is style my typical white cardstock as basis and the paint splatters 😉

    Awesome by ScatteredConfetti. Awesome by ScatteredConfetti. Awesome by ScatteredConfetti.

    [SBW Bloghop] Alles neu macht der Mai – Inspiration mit Moodboard.

    Bloghop_ScrapbookWerkstatt_Moodboard_Scrapbooking_ScatteredConfetti_1

    Hallo und willkommen zum Bloghop der Scrapbook Werkstatt! 🙂 Wenn ihr von Anfang an durchgehüpft seid, müsstet ihr jetzt von Sandra zu mir gekommen sein.

    (am Ende des Posts findet ihr aber auch noch einmal die gesamte Liste der Blogs)

    Genau wie im letzten Jahr (siehe hier) haben wir uns auch dieses Mal ein Moodboard zusammen gestellt das als Inspiration für uns (und natürlich auch euch!) dienen sollte. Oh, und psst: Unter allen Teilnehmern, die bis zum 08. Mai 2016 mitmachen, verlost die Scrapbook Werkstatt einen Einkaufsgutschein im Wert von sagenhaften 20 €. Um im Lostopf zu landen, müsst ihr nur einen kleinen Kommentar auf jedem der teilnehmenden Blogs hinterlassen! Das war´s auch schon; nicht schwierig, oder?

    Moodboard

    1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13

    Ich muss sagen, ich bin total verknallt in die Farben dieses Moodboards (okay, ich bin vielleicht auch etwas voreingenommen, schließlich habe ich es zusammengestellt 😀 – Ich hoffe euch gefällt es auch!). Und hätte ich umzugsbedingt nicht so wenig Zeit gehabt, hätte ich definitiv mehr als nur ein Layout bzw. Projekt damit gemacht! Sobald hier allerdings wieder ein bisschen Normalität und Ordnung eingekehrt ist, werde ich mir das Moodboard definitiv noch mal vornehmen 🙂

    Hier nun aber mein Layout:

    Paradise_Scrapbooking_Layout_ScatteredConfetti_ScrapbookWerkstatt_Bloghop_7Paper_1

    Leider kann man es auf dem Foto nur schlecht erkennen, aber unter dem “Paradise” Schriftzug ist so ein netzartiger Tüllstoff – die Zuckerwatte vom Moodboard hat mich dazu inspiriert dieses Stoffstückchen nun endlich mal zu nutzen. Auch sonst finden sich einige Elemente aus dem Moodboard auf meinem Layout wieder: ein schräg gestreifter mint-weißer Streifen Washi, die Pünktchen/Kleckse, die abstrakten Muster und natürlich insgesamt die Farben 🙂

    Paradise_Scrapbooking_Layout_ScatteredConfetti_ScrapbookWerkstatt_Bloghop_7Paper_0

    Für dieses Projekt habe ich auch einfach mal durch meinen ganzen Fundus gewühlt und mir immer hier und da etwas rausgepickt, was zu dem Moodboard gepasst hat. Es hat richtig Spaß gemacht mal nicht nur mit einer bestimmten Kollektion zu arbeiten, sondern einfach alles wild durcheinander zu würfeln 🙂 Es sind Sachen aus der Goldie Kollektion von 7Paper dabei, die Thickers sind aus einer Amy Tangerine Serie, das Korkherzchen ist aus der C’est la vie Kollektion von Pink Paislee, usw.

    Paradise_Scrapbooking_Layout_ScatteredConfetti_ScrapbookWerkstatt_Bloghop_7Paper_4 Paradise_Scrapbooking_Layout_ScatteredConfetti_ScrapbookWerkstatt_Bloghop_7Paper_3

    Ich hoffe euch gefällt mein Projekt zu diesem Bloghop! Und jetzt wünsche ich euch noch viel Spaß beim Weiterhüpfen! Die nächste ist Julia.

    Und hier ist noch einmal die gesamte Liste, falls ihr mal verloren gehen solltet 😉
