    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.

    What do you think?

    And here’s what you need to know to participate:

    What is the challenge about?
    You can participate with a project (layout, card, album, home deco…whatever..) using our spring color combo (using at least two colors).

    Projects made with LB products will be assessed positively but isn’t a requirement.


    What do I have to do to participate?

Once you have published the project on your blog or favorite social network you have to join on the link you have at the end of this entry over at the LoraBailora blog. The link must be to the post or picture of the project and not to your main blog or profile.
    • You must be a follower of LB social networks. If you upload your project from Facebook you must label Lora Bailora on your publication and mention the challenge. If you do it from Instagram using the hastag “retoprimaveralorabailora” and if you do it from your blog, in your post must have a link to the challenge.
    • Only one entry per person.
    You can link up your project until the 16th of June at 23:55. The winner will be published on Thursday June 23 on the LB blog.
    It’s an international challenge. Anyone can participate from anywhere in the world!  Yayy! 🙂
     
    The winner will receive a 30€ bonus to spend on the LoraBailora Etsy store and will also be the guest designer in the next challenge.
    So, I hope you are inspired by the mood board and the other projects (you can find them all here) and I’d love if you participated in the challenge! 🙂

    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 cumpleaños, jefa!! 😉 <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!! 😉 ), 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!

    ¡De todo corazón te deseo lo mejor: suerte, felicidad, éxito con todo lo que haces, salud, amor y todo lo que deseas! Gracias por tenerme como parte de tu equipo de diseño!! :-*

    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!

    [Lora Bailora] Birthday Calendar.

     

    DIY Birthday Calendar by ScatteredConfetti

    I don’t know about you, but I have almost all the important dates for birthdays, anniversaries etc. memorised and very rarely forget one (I even remember quite a few birthday dates from my class mates in the elementary school).
    S. however is quite the opposite. He has the most important dates in mind (his birthday :D, my birthday, his mother’s and sister’s birthday and our anniversary) and so far hasn’t forgotten my birthday (which is very unlikely to happen, since it’s two days after his b-day). But that’s about it for dates he has memorised. So one day, when looking at my pretty month stamps by LoraBailora, I had the idea of making a really simple and easy (almost pocket-sized) birthday calendar.

    I shared the full tutorial on the LoraBailora blog a few weeks ago. Of course you could also change the size of the calendar and make it even bigger so you can hang it up, or even smaller so it fits in a bag and you can take it with you wherever you go.

    A Summer [Layout] for LoraBailora.

    To kick off the new week, I am sharing a very summery and bright layout over on Laura’s blog, using her beautiful stamps! I hope you go check it out and let me know what you think! 🙂

    Als guten Start in die neue Woche, zeige ich euch auf Laura’s Blog ein neues Layout, auf welchem ich einige ihrer wundervollen Stempel verwendet habe. Ich hoffe ihr schaut mal vorbei und lasst mich wissen, wie ihr es findet! 🙂

    The layout includes this photo that was taken last year in Cadaqués. I also drew the inspiration for the layout’s colour scheme from it. I absolutely love that bright blue and pink against the white in this picture! Go have a look how I transferred it onto my layout! 🙂
    Here’s a little sneaky peek:

    Auf dem LO habe ich dieses Foto verscrappt, welches ich letztes Jahr in Cadaqués gemacht habe. Die Inspiration für das Farbschema des LOs kam auch von dem Foto. Ich finde dieses leuchtende Blau und Pink als Kontrast zu den weißen Wänden einfach grandios! Klickt doch mal rüber um zu sehen, wie ich es umgesetzt habe! 🙂
    Hier ist schonmal ein kleiner Vorgeschmack:

    Have a nice week y’all!!

    Habt eine schöne Woche ihr Lieben!

    A Golden Favourite [Layout].

    Hey y’all: I’m just stopping by real quick to let you know that there’s a new blogpost by me online on Laura’s blog where I’m showing these PL cards and a (very golden) layout that I’ve made using her stamps.
    I’d love it if you stop by and maybe leave a note telling me what you think about it – I mean, there’s no such thing as too much gold, is there?! 😉

    A little teaser for you:


    So, be sure to stop by and have a nice evening! 🙂

    The Best Time is Now. [Papierprojekt Mini Album]

     

    Long time no see, right? Well this time of the year is, as probably for most of you, quite stressful and hectic. Although it should also be a time where we calm down, pause and take in all the impressions and feelings because this Christmas time is something special which passes so very quickly year after year.
    I didn’t have much, if any time left for scrapping or doing anything creative in the past two weeks because of my job. Last week was the peek of all this stressfulness and work and now it’s finally getting a bit calmer and I have some time left to enjoy our Christmas tree, the Christmas market and also to work on some creative projects.

    Since I got the beautiful Papierprojekt Kit from Felicitas I made two projects that I’ve already shown you and one that has been in the making for the whole time and isn’t finished even now.. But because I really wanted to show it to you and because I have no idea when I will have the time to finish it, I decided to take some photos of the half finished album and just show you 😉 


    Right now it’s just the basis of a Mini Album and only two or three photos, but once it’s done it is meant to be a collection of some of my favourite moments in 2014. Just random bits and pieces 🙂 I put all the photos of my mini album basis into little collages so I don’t have such a huge picture flood in this post but without leaving anything out 😉 
    (Click on the pictures to enlarge)

    I made this little shaker bag similar to the tutorial I showed you a while back, only that this time I used the little clear plastic bag of some enamel dots to put in my wood veneer shapes and sequins. I just cut off the top of the bag and sewed it up. Easy as that! 🙂

    I also made some little pockets on the back side of some pages to hold random photos or bits and pieces such as tickets/receipts… I just sewed a small strip of patterned paper onto the page. Simple and easy! And if you sew it on and don’t glue you won’t run the risk of putting your photos in and ruining them with some glue that might stick on the photo!


    This shaker bag is actually the exact same one I made for the tutorial a few weeks ago. I like to make things like this in batches so I can reach for them when I’m working on a new project. 🙂


    In this collage you can see one of those sewn pockets a bit closer 🙂 I like to add such details to hold as many photos and memories in a little album like this!

    Now I hope that I will have the time (and energy 😉 ) to finish this album maybe before the next year begins.. Or at least somewhen in January. Because I know myself and if it will sit on my table unfinished for longer than that, the chance that it will actually be completed will decrease from week to week.. Nevertheless I like flipping through this little cutie quite a lot already! 🙂

    And here’s the full album:

    A quick & easy PL card tutorial with [LoraBailora products].

    Woohoo, here’s the second post of the day! And it’s going to be colourful 🙂

    Today I’m going to show you a super easy and quick way how to make your own custom-made Project Life cards using Laura’s stamps and buttons, and only a few more things. And the best thing: this project won’t take you more than 15 minutes!


    What you will need: white cardstock, cutter, watercolours, embossing ink (or any stamp ink that dries slowly), embossing powder, a heat gun and of course some stamps and buttons! 🙂
    (If you don’t have a heat gun at home, don’t worry, your toaster will do just the same – just hold your card over it until the embossing powder has melted. Be careful not to burn yourself, though! 😀 )


    Here’s how to make those cards (I didn’t include any step by step photos because it’s just so easy!):

    1. Grab a piece of white cardstock and cut the size you want. (I made all of mine 3“x4“, but you can make any size you need, of course)
    2. Take a paintbrush and dip it in water to moisten the card (you can moisten all of it, or just part of the card, depending on the effect you want to achieve) – do not put paint on the brush, yet!
    3. Now when the card is wet, take some paint on your brush and dip it onto the card – the colour will now find its way through the water and create a really cool effect 🙂
    4. Let the card dry.
    5. Take your favourite stamp, put some embossing ink on it and press it onto the card.
    6. Apply embossing powder and melt it with your heat gun (or toaster 😀 ).
    7. You are done!

    Now you can admire your pretty cards and use them in your next Project Life spreads! Or give them to a friend to put a smile on her face! 🙂

    I hope you like this quick and easy tutorial! Next time I’ll show you some of the cards I made in action – and of course a new project featuring Laura’s pretty products!  

    Which card is your favourite? I can’t decide between the pink/yellow one with the camera button and the green “otoño” card 🙂

    You should also check out Laura’s blog where I shared this tutorial today, too and where you will find so many other great projects with her beautiful products by my incredibly talented DT colleagues!

    Products used:
    LoraBailora stamp “ABC sketch”
    LoraBailora stamp “otoño”
    LoraBailora stamp “Willy Fog”
    LoraBailora stamp “Fotogenica”
    LoraBailora buttons “Cole1”
