    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 ­čÖé

    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” ­čÖé 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 ­čśÇ 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! ­čÖé

    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 ­čśë

    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!!

    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 ­čśë

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

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

    Hey there ­čÖé 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 ­čÖé The following three layouts are actually quite different from each other (at least in my mind ­čśë )

     

    This first one is my favourite of all three:

    Favourite Caf├ę Layout by ScatteredConfetti. For this layout I handcut the flowers from this patterned paper by Simple Stories and I┬áreally 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 ­čśë

    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 Caf├ę 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 ­čśë

    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 ­čśë

    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 ­čÖé

    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 ­čÖé

    A Layout for [LoraBailora]’s ColorCombo Challenge.

    Hey there! ­čÖé 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 ­čÖé

    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 ­čśÇ ) ..but there is style my typical white cardstock as basis and the paint splatters ­čśë

    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! ­čÖé Wenn ihr von Anfang an durchgeh├╝pft seid, m├╝sstet 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 f├╝r uns (und nat├╝rlich 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 ÔéČ. Um im Lostopf zu landen, m├╝sst 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, schlie├člich habe ich es zusammengestellt ­čśÇ – Ich hoffe euch gef├Ąllt es auch!). Und h├Ątte ich umzugsbedingt nicht so wenig Zeit gehabt, h├Ątte ich definitiv mehr als nur ein Layout bzw. Projekt damit gemacht! Sobald hier allerdings wieder ein bisschen Normalit├Ąt und Ordnung eingekehrt ist, werde ich mir das Moodboard definitiv noch mal vornehmen ­čÖé

    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 T├╝llstoff – die Zuckerwatte vom Moodboard hat mich dazu inspiriert dieses Stoffst├╝ckchen nun endlich mal zu nutzen. Auch sonst finden sich einige Elemente aus dem Moodboard auf meinem Layout wieder: ein schr├Ąg gestreifter mint-wei├čer Streifen Washi, die P├╝nktchen/Kleckse, die abstrakten Muster und nat├╝rlich insgesamt die Farben ­čÖé

    Paradise_Scrapbooking_Layout_ScatteredConfetti_ScrapbookWerkstatt_Bloghop_7Paper_0

    F├╝r dieses Projekt habe ich auch einfach mal durch meinen ganzen Fundus gew├╝hlt und mir immer hier und da etwas rausgepickt, was zu dem Moodboard gepasst hat. Es hat richtig Spa├č gemacht mal nicht nur mit einer bestimmten Kollektion zu arbeiten, sondern einfach alles wild durcheinander zu w├╝rfeln ­čÖé 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 gef├Ąllt mein Projekt zu diesem Bloghop! Und jetzt w├╝nsche ich euch noch viel Spa├č beim Weiterh├╝pfen! Die n├Ąchste ist Julia.

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

    Happy Birthday LoraBailora [Blog Hop]!

    HappyBirthday

    Hello and welcome to this Lora Bailora Birthday Bloghop! This blog hop was planned as a surprise by the LoraBailora design team for our “boss” Laura who is celebrating her 30th birthday today!!!

    So first of all: Let’s wish this wonderful, creative, talented woman the happiest of birthdays! Feliz cumplea├▒os, jefa!! ­čśë <3

    Although we have never met in person (so far) I know that we would get along really well and I really hope that one day we will make it happen! I’m still amazed at how much you and your business have grown in the past year and a half! I still remember how I excited I was when I read your e-mail asking me to join a design team for your products that you had just recently started to create.

    Back then you only had a few acrylic stamp sets, all of them only in Spanish, and some badges. With every new release you really surprised me because your products just kept getting better and better and more and more people got to know you and your label and wanted to get some LoraBailora goodness for themselves. It didn’t take long until you made the first stamp sets in English, too and you also started designing your own washi tapes and thereby growing your range of products. Your washis are still my absolute favourites to use because they aren’t only really cute, they are also great quality – just like your stamps! Every time you showed us what products you had designed for the next release, I squealed with delight! And now you extended your range of products even more: you started with only acrylic stamps but now we can also get washi tapes designed by you, enamel shapes, acrylic blocks, badges (please bring back the badges!! ­čśë ), wood veneer shapes, puffy stickers and roller stamps! You sell your products worldwide and lots of big online shops have them in stock, too. And now you even move to a new and bigger studio! It’s really inspiring to look at the growth of you and your business and keeping in mind that you managed all of this in only about two years, I can’t imagine what awesomne things you must have for us in this coming year!

    ┬íDe todo coraz├│n te deseo lo mejor: suerte, felicidad, ├ęxito con todo lo que haces, salud, amor y todo lo que deseas! Gracias por tenerme como parte de tu equipo de dise├▒o!! :-*

    To celebrate this day, I made a layout using lots of different LoraBailora products – actually all of the different kinds of LB products you can get now!
