    My Top 10 Favourite Projects in 2017 – Blog Hop

    Hey there and welcome to the “Top Ten Blog Hop 2017” – a blog hop where some papercrafters and scrapbookers share their personal favourite projects from this year. When Christine invited fellow crafters to join in on this blog hop, I immediately jumped on this chance because a) it’s so much fun to do a recap like this, and b) blog hops are always great – not only because there might be a giveaway or two along the road (although that certainly is a nice treat đŸ˜‰ ), but also because you can discover new (to you) bloggers and crafters this way!

    I decided to make a Top 10 “hitlist” (some people will share more, some less) of my personal favourites and tried to rank them but the ranking isn’t really “fixed” – it’s hard to do when there are so many different projects involved đŸ˜‰ So, are you ready?

    1. This Accordion Summer Mini Album was without a doubt my No. 1 favourite project of this year! It still gives me so much joy flipping through the album and rediscovering all the details đŸ™‚ You can also watch a quick flip-through (or a more detailed walk-through) video here.

    2. A close second were the projects I made for my “Use your Scraps” class over at Big Picture Classes; the class as a whole project was a lot of fun (and work!) to put together and I’m excited to see how you like it! I may or may not already be working on my next classes đŸ˜‰

    3. Coffee and Crate Paper (especially the “Gather” collection) are two of my favourite things, so a layout that combines both of them must make it into my Top 10, right?! đŸ˜€

    4. Another mini album! My (not yet finished) December Daily album for this Christmas season. It’s the first time I didn’t give up after only three days and I’m very determined to get it finished in the first week of January (I will do my DD until Dec, 31st) because even in its unfinished state it already makes me so ridiculously happy to look through! (You can watch a quick flip-through video with my foundation pages and the first few finished ones here)

    5. This layout was my first project as part of the Pinkfresh Studio Design Team using the “Escape the Ordinary” collection and it still is one of my favourite layouts from this year. I just love the colour scheme and the photo I used đŸ™‚

    6. This layout that I made with the Felicity Jane Heidi kit is also one of my favourites, which doesn’t surprise because the Heidi kit was also my absolute favourite FJ kit to work with this year (although it is really difficult to pick a favourite!)

    7. I think it’s always good to venture out of your comfort zone and sometimes the result might even end up being one of your favourite projects đŸ˜‰ That’s what happened to me with this “Bloom” layout that is a bit more dimensional and, uh, die cutty (yeah, totally a word…) than my usual layouts đŸ˜‰

    8. Same goes for this “You Rock” banner that I made with the Boy’s Fort collection by Pinkfresh Studio – much more masculine than any of my projects but it was just SO much fun to make!

    9. The “Wild at Heart” collection by Cocoa Vanilla was also one of my absolute favourite scrapbooking collections this year, so it’s no surprise that one of the layouts I made with it made it into my Top 10

    10. This Crop Packing List was not a scrapbooking project as such, but it is connected to scrapbooking and it definitely is one of my favourite things that I made this year! I’ve had the idea for making a Crop Packing List for quite a while, but never got around to doing it. When it was time to pack for a crop though, I knew I now had to make it happen đŸ˜‰ You can download your free printable Crop Packing List here (it’s available in English, German and Spanish!) – hope you like it and get some use out of it!

    Whew – what a year! It was a year full of trying new things (uploading my first videos to my YouTube channel, my first “own” online scrapbooking workshop, joining some amazing DTs (Felicity Jane, Pinkfresh Studio, Citrus Twist Kits), making my first free printable, …) and more), meeting new people, planning, making, creating… and it sometimes felt like everything was happening at the same time (and it sure was a lot of work!) but I feel so happy and grateful for all the chances and opportunities I was given this past year! I can’t wait to see what the new year brings (lots of exciting things are already in the planning/making!)

    I hope you can all look back on the past year and find some favourite memories/projects/events/… and I would love to hear (or even better, see!) what your favourite project in 2017 was! Thanks so much for stopping by!

    Accordion Mini Album Summer 2016 + a Giveaway.

    Summer Mini Album

    Hey there đŸ™‚ Summer is in full swing around here, so I thought it’s the perfect time to share a mini album that I made about my favourite events and moments from Summer 2016. The base of the album was inspired by Stephanie Bryan’s “Summer Bucket List” mini album class at Big Picture Classes. I did change it a bit though, to make it a little sturdier.

    With this mini album I also tried a few things for the first time, like the accordion binding and adding my journaling with my new We R Memory Keepers typewriter that I got from my former colleagues as a farewell gift. And: I can already tell that this will be a game changer for my scrapbooking projects! Lots of my layouts and mini albums lack a bit of journaling and the reason usually is that I don’t want to mess it up with my handwriting.. I try to add hidden journaling whenever I can, but I think having some “open” journaling does add a lot to a project.

    Because the basic structure of the album is so simple, I actually managed to start and finish this one in one evening! I’m notorious for starting the next mini album before I finished the last one, but this time I was determined to get it done before I moved onto the next one – and I did it!  Cue happy dance đŸ˜€ I’m really happy with how it turned out and that I now have a record of some of my Summer 2016 highlights. Flipping through this album makes me really happy đŸ™‚ So, be prepared for a whole truckload of photos. Oh, and at the end of this post I also linked the two videos I made for this album: one short(er) flip-through and one detailed walk-through with some explanations and babbling from me đŸ˜‰

    Each page of this album is a pocket page which I used to tuck in one photo on which I sow a piece of vellum. To add some journaling to the vellum I used my We R Memory Keepers Typecast typewriter and also embellished them with some sequins, stamps or the like. On this first page I listed some of my favourite memories from that summer, like the Adele concert we’ve been to in Barcelona or the fact that this was the first summer in our new apartment and I could go full on crazy plantlady on our big balcony đŸ˜€

    On this page (above & below) I added a little shaker pocket that I made with a 4×4″ page protector and my Fuse tool. There’s probably (almost) no mini album of mine that doesn’t have a shaker pocket.

    On some pages I also let the vellum flip stay on top of the pocket – that way you can read the journaling when flipping through the album.

    For this page (above) it was really difficult to choose what photo I wanted to use because it’s about our Costa Brava trip and I have probably hundreds of photos. So I tried to find one that would work well with the colour scheme of this spread and would also look good with some vellum layered on top of it.

    Actually, for all of the pages I was looking for very bright photos that had lots of white space – they are great to add some journaling to them.

    At the end of the album I also included this paper bag to hold some more bits and pieces, like tickets, ephemera and some more favourite photos. For the closing “mechanism” I just added to brads and some punched out paper circles and then wrapped some golden twine around them.

    As I said, I’m really happy with the result and I’m also proud of myself for actually having finished a mini album đŸ˜€

    What do you think? I hope you like it! What kind of mini album maker are you – do you also start a new one (or two, or three.. đŸ˜€ ) before having finished the first or do you always finish your mini albums right away? (If you are the second type – tell me your secret! đŸ˜‰ )

    And now,as promised, here are the two videos that I made of this mini album:

     

     

    Aaaaand *drumroll* these are also the first videos on my new YouTube channel!! And to celebrate I thought a giveaway was in order đŸ˜‰ To be entered to win, just leave a comment on of the two videos. For additional entries, visit my Instagram profile and look for this photo. There you’ll find more information.
