New stuff

I haven´t been creative lately. I just don´t have any ideas and if I try something I don´t like it that much. :o(
That´s why I didn´t blog. But today I think I could show you two things I´ve done.

I´ve been shopping last week and got some clearstamps from Technique Tuesday I always loved. Here´s my first try useing this stamps:

I have some more ideas to use them. I hope I could try it soon!

Another thing I bought was a pc-programm called "Memory Mixer". I´m not doing digital LOs often but this sounds great! So I give it a try. It was very easy to use and I just did this first LO in about five minutes:

The journaling says: "I love to laugh with you!"

I hope I get my mojo back soon!

Last monday I recieved a new "Creating Keepsakes". On the backside of the magazine was an advertisment from "Close to my heart". I love the LO shown on it and its colors. So I thought about a scraplift. This is what I made:

The idea to use the doodle and put flowers at it came while I was scrapping. And I really like the result!

I guess buying "Creating Keepsakes" was a good idea! I saw some more LOs inside this issue that were inspiring. I just wish I have more time...

Speaking of Creating Keepsakes: I´m very exited about a scrapbook-weekend in the Netherlands in the beginning of June that I will go to. I´ve been there last year twice and had a lot of fun. I thought I wouldn´t go there this time because of my vacation to the States but when I read that Lisa Bearnson (founder of Creating Keepsakes-magazine) will be there I couldn´t resist! I love her work and think that she´s amazing! I will do two workshops she´ll teach and I´m really exited about it! I hope it´ll be a lot of fun!

DreamTeam & Bears

Last friday I´ve been to a crop again. I made this LO:

It shows the girls I´m regulary stamping with. We always have so much fun and I love spending my time with them!

With these girls I meet last saturday again too. Just Nicole was missing but she´ll be around next time again. When we meet I did the following cards:

On this cards I used the paperscraps from the LO before and rubberstamps from Penny Black and Daries. I LOVE bears! I love them as stamp-images and I love them as toys. I hardly can turn around and go when I see a cute little bear. That´s why I couldn´t resist buying this new stamps from Whipper Snapper designs.

EDIT: The pic of my small book will follow...

Aren´t they cute??? The small book is a bonus project I did for my Big Picture-class "The Art of choosing joy". It´s a little journal to I write in every day the things I´m grateful for. I´m a little behind in my class but I love it! It is so inspiring!
I not only stamp cute bears last weekend. I bought a new cuddly toy too. I love the bears from Build-a-bear. They just open two shops in Hamburg last year. I´ve been there and saw this sweet little spingbear:

I call her Micah (I know it´s a boys name but I like it for this sweet teddy too) and she is so soft! I always could cuddle her! ;o)

I hope next weekend I could be creative again and maybe there will be some new bearstuff again! *lol*
