ScrapJause 2011

What can I say…I’m tired but inspired :) Our event was so much fun. Anna and I arrived on Thursday and did some work and organization before the event started…still having some time to sit in the wonderful sun outside :)

Was kann ich sagen…ich bin müde aber inspiriert :) Unser Event hat sehr viel Spaß gemacht. Anna und ich sind am Donnerstag angekommen und haben noch einige Arbeiten erledigt, bevor das Event dann began…aber wir hatten trotzdem noch Zeit in der wunderschönen Sonne draußen zu sitzen :)

We started Saturday with my Layout Workshop “The thoughts are free”

Los ging es am Samstag mit meinem Layout Workshop ” Die Gedanken sind frei”

The last workshop was my Minialbum workshop – well…I did really not take a lot of pictures-
Der letzte Workshop war mein Minialbum Workshop…ich habe leider nicht genug Photos geschossen – Charlotte :)

The next day we woke up and all was white outside
Am nächsten Tag wachten wir auf und alles war weiß draußen

Anna taught her wonderful two classes and I taught my Canvas Workshop this time.
Anna gab ihre zwei wunderbaren Workshops und ich habe meinen Leinwand Workshop gegeben.

As always my favorite thing was that all pieces were different and that the students had fun to work – for some of them – outside the box.
Wie immer war ich besonders glücklich darüber, dass alle Werke unterschiedlich aussahen und dass die Teilnehmer Spaß bei den Workshops hatten – für einige vor allem dabei, einmal etwas völlig anderes zu tun.

Thank you Birgit for organising with us- you are wonderful!
Danke Birgit für das Mitorganisieren – Du bist großartig

I believe the only picture of Anna and me – at the airport today…we were really too busy to take a lot of photos- if you have some…please please share!!!!

Ich glaube das ist das einzige Photo von Anna und mir – am Flughafen heute- wir waren wirklich zu eingspannt, als dass wir ans Foto machen hätten denken können…wenn Ihr welche habt…bitte bitte schicken !!!!

Danke Euch allen für Alles-besonders an diejenigen von Euch – die Stunde um Stunde gefahren und geflogenb sind! Wir hatten eine großartige Zeit mit Euch!

Vintage Street Market – so much fun!

One of my visits at the Winter CHA has been to the Vintage Street Market booth – I had discovered them a couple months ago in the www and subsribed to their amazing blog not even realising for a long time that the two owners are the wonderful Allison and Michelle – who I know for a bit :)

Their booth was really amazing – a real eyecatcher –  and I love the concept of their Products.  Not only Vintage themed, no you can use their products for Scrapbooking AND Giftwrapping AND Homedecor. Seriously fun!!!

CHA_25

I have been so lucky that they gave me a pack of their Dimestore Vogue Kit and I had a blast playing a bit with it.

The kit will come with

-Two 24″x36″ decorative printed paper sheets

-One 24″x36″ aqua foil sheet

-One 24″x36″ brown crepe sheet

-One 12″x12″ sheet of coloful Tags & Things-decorative die cut embellishments

and I have to admit at first I was a bit stunned at how to work with a 24″x36″ piece of paper – well…no problem. You can easly cut the piece with your paper cutters in individuell 12″x12″ pieces- but the beauty is that you can also use the bigger pieces to wrap up presents or work on bigger projects. I have always been trying to use my scrapbooking papers for gift wrapping- but they were either to sturdy and/or to small for most gifts. So this rocks.

*Chic*

I also love the huge foil and crepe paper sheet coming with the kit – I see a lot of other fun things created with them.

Detail:
Chic_02

I also love that the package itself is really cute and the whole thing about Vintage Street Market is also sharing Memories and fun facts about Vintage related things.

I created the flower with the Aqua Foil.

*Celebrate Card*

CelebrateCard_01
For this card I used the die cut girl and tag from the Die Cut Sheet. The Background was created with the a fun technique using Letraset Promarkers, Ranger’s Blending Solution and the beautiful stamp by La Blanche on the also really cool LaBlanche Keramikpaper.
CelebrateCard_02

And the best…there is still so much left from the kit- that I can play even more ! Love it- check them out!

I’m off to head to our  ScrapJause Mixed Media Workshop Event  – see you soon :)

Huge hugs

Altered Photo Tray – 2010 Review

I’m neglecting my blog- not on purpose- it is just that I have created a huge amount of projects in the last couple months and I can’t show them…but here- what about this one ? ;)

Ich vernachlässige meinen Blog -aber nicht mit Absicht – es ist einfach nur so, dass ich einen riesigen Berg von Projekten in den letzten Monaten kreiert habe, aber diese leider nicht zeigen kann…aber nun hier…wie stehts mit diesem ? ;)

Never forget *Tattered Angels*

Oh – I totally forgot about this layout I created with the new Prima MIST-ab-les for the CHA Tattered Angels Booth.They are 12×12 inch printed Canvas Sheets.  I love the Mist-ab-les – so much fun to work with.

The photo is a bit poor in quality- since taken late night before going to CHA

MistablePrimaGM_01

The butterlies are from another sheet of those MIST-ab-les.

I love how yo can cut them out and use them for different projects. All Glimer Mist Colors used are the Coordinating Prima Colors.

Heavy Metal…on Tattered Angels

is the theme this month and here are my projects

I found these 3 metal flower magnets- which funny enough also have a  light bulb in the middle- so to make a little garland. I used some Glimmer Glaze just for the tips of the petals to make the color more prominent. They look so fun.

Metallflowers_Magnets

I altered this metal box that I found at a bazar using mostly Glimmer Glaze and Glimmer Glam.
Metallbox

I painted the the details using Glimmer Glaze, and the bigger areas using one of my favorite Glimmer Glams – the Tinsel Town. To finish it off I sprayed the box with the new Firefly Chalkboard Glimmer Mist and lifted some areas off again.

wishing you an amazing day :)
