    Three Fresh Cards with [Gossamer Blue May Kits].

    Woohoo, it’s that time again: reveal day at Gossamer Blue and let me tell you, the May kits are gorgeous! I looove all those fresh and bright colours. Here are some of my favourite bits from this month’s kits:

    Gossamer Blue May Favourites

    I mean, look at those acrylic shapes! I am a sucker for acrylic shapes and these might be some of my all-time favourites, mostly because of the colours. Bright but kinda pastel-ish. And I know I say that almost every month, but the life pages cards are awesome! Apart from the vibrant colours (that are totally awesome), the words and phrases on them are geat. There is an “ughhh” one, another that says “oh sh*t” and more of that kind. It’s a nice change from the normale “best ever” kinda products in the scrapbooking world. Oh, and can we talk about that stamp set (especially the cactus) and those wood veneer pieces for a second? I mean, what’s not to love about those?

    I didn’t get to play much with the kits (yet) because they arrived quite late this time and this weekend we moved to a new apartment (in another city) and I’ve been preparing this move for the past two weeks… So right now almost everything is still in boxes (except for some of my scrapbooking things – priorities, y’all! πŸ˜€ ) and it’s still quite chaotic. That’s also the reason for those not very good photos of my first project with the kits. When I finally had some time (and space) to photograph it, the lighting was already rather poor. But anyways, you gotta work with what you have, right?

    I will try to get some better photos as soon as I can and also show you some more projects with those pretty May kits! In the meantime, you can check out all the goodness here. πŸ™‚

    [Gossamer Blue] March Kits Instagram Hop – A Set of Romantic Cards.

    Hey there! πŸ™‚ As you might have seen on Instagram yesterday, the Gossamer Blue design team had a little Instagram Hop going to show you lots of different projects that were made with the pretty Gossamer Blue March kits. (If you haven’t, you can start with my photo and then just click on the person that I’ve tagged in the photo, from there you’ll hop to the person they tagged and so on. Until you end up at my photo again πŸ™‚ )

    I shared a little sneak of three of the five cards that I’ve made with the kits in the IG hop and today I want to show you the whole set of five:

    I kept the cards quite simple (as I usually do) and used only papers from the 6×6″ Pink Paislee C’est La Vie paper pad. I absolutely love the soft, romantic and a bit (okay, maybe a lot) girly colour scheme – and those patterns are divine!

    I paired the papers with some embellishments from the same collection but also mixed in some My Mind’s Eye “On Trend 2” and Crate Paper “Bloom” (the rubber sticker) embellishments. I think they work absolutely perfectly with the Pink Paislee papers! Those golden acrylic mirrored shapes from the On Trend 2 collection might be my absolute favourite thing about those cards!! Oh, and the fact that my Heidi Swapp Color Shine sprays coordinate SO well with the cards. I mean, look at those colours – I’m having all the heart eyes for this colour scheme.

    I really can’t decide which of the cards is my favourite because I really like how they all look together as a set. So right now I’m still thinking about giving the whole set as a gift to someone so they could use them. I think it would be a pretty gift if I made a little box for them that goes with the colour scheme and style of the cards.. So we’ll see.

    Have you ever gifted cards that you’ve made (in a set or as single cards) to someone for them to give them away, or also got some as a gift – did you like them? I’m still not sure if it’s something someone really would appreciate.

    Happy New Year with Some [Gossamer Blue] Projects!

    Happy New Year to you all!! I wish you all a great, healthy, successful and magical 2016! πŸ™‚

    Because of the Christmas holidays my Gossamer Blue January kits came a bit late, so I wasn’t able to scrap much with them yet. But I can already show you one layout that I’ve made with them.

    Rest layout by ScatteredConfetti Rest layout by ScatteredConfetti

    WHAT?
    I took this photo on the first day of my Christmas holidays (Dec, 22nd). I couldn’t wait for those holidays to begin so that I could finally relax a little bit, scrap, go on coffee dates and do all the fun things. But of course on my first day of holidays I woke up feeling sick.. so opposite to what I had planned for that day, I mostly stayed in bed and let myself rest.

    HOW?
    I used different papers from the Seven Paper “Goldie” collection (I love it!!) that were included in the Scrapbook Main kit, the Main Add-On and the Add-On #2. I think paper-wise the January kits are the best ones so far!! So much “Goldie” and “Hello Love” goodness!
    Anyways. I handcut several squares from the papers, all about the same size. I didn’t measure them because I wanted them to be different and not all exactly square. Then I first adhered them with my glue runner and after that stitched over them with my sewing machine.
    Beneath the paper square that is adhered with a strip of washi tape I added some hidden journaling that I didn’t want to be seen directly.
    (I normally don’t “censor” my layouts that I post here, but this time it’s a bit too personal..)

    Using Life Pages Cards on Layout with the Gossamer Blue [October Kits].

    Ugh.. where has time gone?? It’s almost the middle of October and I just realised that I haven’t shared my projects with the Gossamer Blue October kits here on the blog yet… Life has been really really busy around here and time seems to be running. Especially now that I finally have the date for my final final exam (2. Staatsexamen) – Nov. 4th will be the big day!! But until then I still have to get quite a few things done.. unfortunately none of them involve patterned paper, enamel dots or wood veneer pieces πŸ˜€

    However, as soon as I will have passed that exam and regained some energy, I will dive into my Gossamer Blue December Memories kit (which I picked up from customs yesterday – yayyy!). This will be the first time in I think three or four years that I will actually be able to enjoy the Christmas season! AND I will document it with that gorgeous kit (seriously, it really is chock full with beautiful products, most of them exclusively made for this kit!). AND it is the first time I’ll be doing a December Daily style album (although I probably won’t take a daily approach. But more on that later)

    Can you tell I am a little bit excited for Christmas time? πŸ˜€

    Anyway, back to the October kits. I really really loved the colours in the October kits: lots of gold (yayy!) and beautiful aqua/turquoise tones and some purple (although I actually don’t really like purple. But in combination with those colours it is gorgeous!). If you have a look at my October favourites, you’ll know what I mean:

    So.. what you’d expect are some projects with exactly those colours, right? Wrong! πŸ˜€

    Hello Autumn with the [Scrapbook Werkstatt] October Kit – Three Barcelona-Themed Layouts.

    If you’ve followed my blog or my scrapbooking endeavours for a while now, you’ll know that one of my favourite topics for my projects is Barcelona. When I got to work with the Scrapbook Werkstatt October kit it was no different – of the five layouts I made with the kit, three are about Barcelona πŸ˜€ ..and that’s what I’ll show you today πŸ™‚

    Three Barcelona-Themed Layouts.
    Three Barcelona-Themed Layouts.

    HOW?
    For this LO I used some patterned paper strips as a frame for my white cardstock (that I cut down so that the finished layout would be 12×12″ again). In order not to make it too heavy, I only used the border on two of the edges.

    WHAT?
    The photo was taken in January at the Palo Alto Market in Barcelona. I made another LO with a photo from that market with the Gossamer Blue September kits, so you can read a bit more about the market here. Read more
