    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.

    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

    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

    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

    A Rainbow-Inspired Embellishment-Only Layout for [Gossamer Blue].

    With the next month around the corner, it’s almost time to show you a few peeks of the upcoming Gossamer Blue October kits. But before I’ll do that, I thought I should share my last project that I’ve made with the GB September kits.

    A Rainbow-Inspired Embellishment-Only Layout for [Gossamer Blue].

    This time around I got the Scrapbook Main kit, the Life Pages Main, the Life Pages Themed Add-On and the Bits & Pieces kit and it was just SO much fun creating with those! I’ve got so many great embellishments and, well, bits and pieces in those kits that I decided to make an embellishment-only layout.

    I shared the layout and some more detail photos plus my thoughts and ideas for this project on the Gossamer Blue blog here. I’d love it if you stopped by and let me know what you think! ­čÖé

    On Switching Things up & Repeating Patterns with 2 Layouts Using [Pinkfresh Studio “Happy Things”].

    —– Deutscher Text am Ende des Posts —–

     

    On Switching Things Up - 2 Scrapbooking Layouts with Pinkfresh Studio

    I have already shared on Instagram that last week S. and I finally took the plunge and switched our bedroom and my craftroom. This means that the new bedroom is now much smaller (but also a lot cosier!) and the craftoom is now big enough for S. and I to have our own desks in there. There is enough space that I can still have my two desks (one for crafting and one for my computer where I do my school-stuff), S. has his desk and there’s still space left for lots of storage options.

    It’s still not finished, we want to get rid of the huge Expedit/Kallax shelf and get sth. prettier instead,┬á I still need to finish the inspiration wall above my table and in the long run I want a workstation where I can stand for crafting (I tried it and it was so much easier to move around..). I already shared two small peaks into my new space here and here, and once it is finished I will definitely show you more!

    But what I can say so far: S. and I love it and we both agree that we should have done this earlier! We especially love the black wall (seriously, if you thought about painting a wall in your home black, go for it!) and the fact that now I don’t have to be all alone when I’m crafting. Switching those rooms also made me happier with our whole apartment. It’s far from perfect (but then again, perfect is boring) but now it at least feels “fresh”.

    On Switching Things Up - 2 Scrapbooking Layouts with Pinkfresh Studio


    Well, that urge to switch things up also showed when I made these two layouts that are the first ones that I made in my new craftroom. For the first one I was inspired by Paige Evans. If you’ve been around the scrapbooking world for a bit, you will have come across her pretty pages that mostly have one thing in common: the repetition of one shape/technique/colour. So for the first layout I decided to cut up this paper from the new Pinkfresh Studio collection “Happy Things” and put the triangles onto my layout. Then I got a bit carried away and added more and more triangle shaped embellishments (like enamel shapes, the gold glitter stickers or the wood veneer pieces).

    It’s different from my usual layouts, but it helped me get out of a rut. This is why I highly suggest going out of your comfort zone and trying new things when you feel stuck or uninspired!

    The second layout is more like my usual style but in general quite a bit more colourful – nevertheless I like it a lot ­čÖé There’s not much to say about it, actually. It’s just a quick and simple layout with fun bits and pieces scattered all over the page ­čÖé

    I’d love to hear what you do when you get in a creative rut, any advice? Please share! ­čÖé

     
    —————————————————————————————————————


    Ich hab’ ja bereits auf IG erz├Ąhlt, dass S. und ich vergangene Woche unser Schlafzimmer mit meinem Arbeits-/Bastelzimmer getauscht haben (hier und hier zwei kleine Ausschnitte). Daher ist das neue Schlafzimmer um einiges kleiner, aber auch gem├╝tlicher. Das neue Arbeitszimmer ist nun gro├č genug, um sowohl einen Arbeitsplatz f├╝r S. als auch f├╝r mich und noch Stauraum unterzubringen.

    Auch wenn das Zimmer noch lange nicht fertig ist (wir wollen das Expedit/Kallax Regal durch etwas h├╝bscheres austauschen, ich muss noch meine Inspirationsgallerie ├╝ber dem Tisch vervollst├Ąndigen und auf lange Sicht h├Ątte ich zum Scrappen gerne einen Stehtisch), trotz allem sind wir uns aber jetzt schon einig: Es war die richtige Entscheidung und wir h├Ątten es einfach schon viel eher machen sollen! Wir sind so zufrieden damit, wie es bereits jetzt schon aussieht (vor allem die schwarze Wand hat es uns angetan!!). Au├čerdem hei├čt das auch, dass ich endlich mal nicht mehr die ganze Zeit alleine Scrappen muss, sondern wir dann wenigstens zusammen in einem Raum sein k├Ânnen.

    Das Tauschen der R├Ąume hat mich insgesamt auch um einiges zufriedener mit unserer Wohnung gemacht. Dadurch wirkt nun alles wieder etwas “frischer” und kommt dem, wie ich es mir endg├╝ltig vorstelle schon viel n├Ąher.┬á

    Dieses Bed├╝rfnis nach etwas frischem Wind hat sich dann auch beim Scrappen fortgesetzt. Die Layouts, die ich euch heute hier zeige, sind die ersten beiden die in meinem neuen Scrapbereich entstanden sind. Da ich mich in letzter Zeit ein wenig uninspiriert f├╝hlte und beim Scrappen irgendwie das Gef├╝hl hatte in einem Trott festzustecken, habe ich mich einfach mal aus meinem Wohlf├╝hlbereich herausbegeben.

    Wer schon eine Weile in der Scrapwelt unterwegs ist, kennt unter Garantie die Layouts von Paige Evans. Sie haben alle meist eines gemeinsam: viele kleine Teile, das Wiederholen einer bestimmten Form und vor allem viel Farbe. Auch wenn mir ihre Sachen meist gut gefallen, ist das einfach nicht meine Art zu scrappen. F├╝r dieses Mal habe ich mich aber genau von ihren Sachen inspirieren lassen, als Versuch aus meinem Trott herauszukommen.

    Ich hab’ mir das Papier mit den ganzen Dreiecken von Pinkfresh Studio geschnappt und ganz viele davon einzeln ausgeschnitten und dann auf meinem LO platziert. Dann ist es ein bisschen mit mir durchgegangen und ich hab’ noch weitere dreieckige Elemente hinzugef├╝gt, so lange, bis ich das Gef├╝hl hatte es reicht ­čśë Auch wenn ich mir immernoch nicht 100% sicher bin, ob ich das LO mag oder nicht, so hat es mir zumindest geholfen, meine Blockade zu ├╝berwinden, denn gleich danach ist neben dem zweiten LO das ich euch hier zeige auch noch ein ganzer Schwung weiterer Projekte entstanden, die ich euch zum 1. September zeigen kann, wenn die Gossamer Blue September Kits live gehen. Ich freu’ mich schon drauf!!

    Jetzt bin ich aber neugierig, was macht ihr, wenn ihr mal eine kreative Blockade habt und einfach irgendwie nicht weiterkommt bzw. euch ganz uninspiriert f├╝hlt? Irgendwelche Tipps und Ratschl├Ąge?
