Conquer

Hello there lovelies!! What better way to enjoy a grey and rainy Sunday than to scrap a little :). Here is a result of my scrappy morning activity – a layout based on the Paperdvizhnik´s current challenge. I am late on this one, but hey, it´s not closed quite yet! This time their challenge is about lettering and I do love lettering, so just had to join in on this one.

and this is my take:

I´ve used Studio AE stamps for creating some stamped lettering behind my photo. The hello on the bottom signals a start of the journey, then the twine is supposed to show the twists and turns along the way. Somewhere in the middle you start to wonder if you are ever going to make it and in the end the word smile greets one on the top of the mountain. Anyways, that was the idea behind it all. The quote is from me – I don´t know if it already exists somewhere in this form, but while creating this layout it just popped into my mind and I had to use it. There the lettering consists of various alpha stickers combined together. A good way to use leftover stickers sheets too. And I even added some hand lettering here and there.

Of course this mountain climbing is meant to be understood metaphorically – it´s the journey of life I´m talking about here. The mountain photo just perfectly matches the theme here, not the other way around :).

I really enjoyed creating this page. Love the papers I used, been hoarding them for quite a while already and think this is the perfect spot to finally use them. Also some awesome Evalicious puffy stickers found their way onto this page (love them!). Annd…cannot do without some flair – the are from Badges Folie. In addition it feels really good to put feelings and thoughts on paper this way. I definitely should do more pages like these, as they make me feel so good! Thanks for a fab challenge, Paperdvizhnik, I really enjoyed it!!

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Condolence card

Today I am quickly sharing a condolence card I created a while back.

For this one I chose a doily stencil and some silver spray ink, added a ribbon and stamped a sentiment. Tried to keep the card subtle and light.

Hear you soon again, I am in the midst of catching up with everything after CHA. It took me about a week to recover from the time difference, so I am a little bit behind with everything at the moment.

Have a lovely weekend, everyone!

Holiday minialbum – Pipilonias kreative Welt

Hi lovelies! I have piles and piles of vacation photos that need to get scrapped, so I thought I might as well start making minialbums about all our travels. This is the first one I created:

I cut the cover pages out of gray cardboard, then painted them with acrylic paint and let them dry properly. After that I stamped images with a VersaMark ink and poured some of my embossing powders over the stamped areas and heat embossed them.

For decoration I chose various embellishments from my stash: chipboard pieces, stickers and buttons, as well as spray inks and stamps. I used all these products for this mini because one of my goals for this year is to use my stash and incorporate also older product and media on my creations. And minibooks are perfect for this purpose – you can combine so many different products and really use your stash up 🙂 .

For the book pages I used papers from Studio Calico and decorated those with The Crafter´s Workshop stencils and stamp inks. And of course I had to add a few stamped images  here and there too.

I also used this Technique Tuesday stamp set for additional journaling. I first stamped the text on white cardstock, fussy cut them and glued them down. I binded the book with my Chinch binding machine.

I hope you get inspired and take a second look at your stash :). Time to start using those products!! Oh, and should you „need“ some more, here is a nice shop you could find what you are looking for from 😉 .

 

Happy scrapping!
xoxo, Sanna
