Layouts and mini album from Hamburg Workshop

A few weeks ago I went to a workshop in Hamburg. See previous post for info. Here are the layouts and the mini book that I did there.

First workshop was held by Andrea and it was about how to make your own stamps. I had this frog photo with me so I wanted to do something green.

The third workshop was held by Nat and it was about old photos and heritage.


The second workshop was held by Christiane and it was about your 5 senses. We made a mini album.

I took these 5 photos

feel b&w
listen b&w1
see b&w
smelling flower b&w
taste b&w

And here is a slide show of the mini album. The photo quality is really bad because I couldn't get enough of light anywhere.

Create your own stamps

I have been surfing around today and found this great Swedish page Sweetish sister where you can design your own stamps. Either you draw them self or you make a stamp from a photo of yours. I have been thinking about how it would be nice to create your own stamps but I didn't find any easy way to do so. As I'm celebrating Christmas in Sweden this year I might order one and pick it up at my parents.

Happy Birthday Christiane!!!!

Christiane I want to wish you a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY and of course a wonderful anniversary!!! I hope you have a wonderful day today!

I made you this little B-day layout. I played around a bit with this water based satin paint that I bought. On some places it feels like satin and on the chipboard where I used so much of it, it has not satin effect.

schulu bday

Other than that I am currently working on many projects at the same time. I have finally done my advent calendar gifts and sent them off today. I am 90% done with the projects from the workshop in Hamburg so I will be posting those soon.

I won 3rd prize with this frame at the scrapmuse forum.

Last week I also won another prize but I'm keeping that a secret until it arrives :)

From Workshop in Hamburg

I haven't had time to finish my layouts and mini album from the workshop last week. It was a GREAT WS and I learned a lot of new stuff. We created our own stamps, and learned that just because you use older photos of grand grand parents and older you don't have to do heritage style ;). This is great because this week I will be getting a bunch of old photos from my grandmother. We are going to sit together and she will be telling me all about the persons on the photos. I don't see my grandmother so oft and I can't even remember when I last looked in her photo albums.

Here is the cover for my mini album. It's my first in German. I usually don't scrap in German or Swedish or Finnish but I have been thinking a long time that I would love something in German which I can look back on when I am grey and old and remember those times when I lived in Germany ;).

Pencil lines sketch #1 Year

I haven't done any Pencil lines sketch for a loooong time. I decided to take a break from all the mini albums that I have started and that still are unfinished and do a sketch challenge for a change. I went kinda nuts on the felt part :). It's just full of felt ;)
