New cards

I´ve made some new stamping-cards lately. This card and Tag were for my dear friend Nicole. She loves House Mouses and the combination of pink and green!

And here are some cards I made just for fun! Right now I´m in love with stamps from Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar. I just love stamps with cute children / people!! Some more are on their way! :o)

I also made a doorhanger for my Big Picture-class "Daily Dose". It was a lot of fun!

I didn´t scrap that much the last day. I had a bad cold and was very busy at work. And right now I wanted to stamp a little more. Maybe it´s because I´ve been to europes biggest stamping-convention last weekend. But I´ll scrap again soon! Sometimes it´s hard to decide: stamping or scrapping? I guess I need to stamp a little more on my LOs! *lol*
Have a great day! - Coni

New design

I changed my design today. I´m in the mood for fall and so I wanted some "darker" less brighter colors. My darling Andi helped me with this. Isn´t the header he did great? Thanks darling! *kiss*

Have a great day everyone - Coni

More and more...

Okay, there´s some more to show. Right now I´m addicted to scrapbooking and stamoing! :o)

First I wanna show the last project I did for the "Summer of Scraplovin´"-Contest at Scraplove. Last weeks challenge was to use no cardstock or patternd paper on the background. I decided to use cork. I cut it to 8x8´´.

On the pic you can see Andis beautiful niece Lina. This LO stands right beside her proud uncles desk. Since Lina and her parents live in Austria we don´t see her very often.

The contest is over now and I really love doing it. I guess I´ll miss doing this every week. I wasn´t one of the winners but I never expected this. I won a lot of fun, that I tried new things and 10 LOs. And this was more than worth it! :o)

Last saturday I meet some friends to scrap and stamp together. I did one LO and two cards.

journaling: I don´t like to see you going away. There´s always the fear you may not come back.

Yes, I did a Halloween-card. The weather here in Germany feels like fall for the last days now (I don´t think we had a "real" summer this year). And I love this new stamp of mine and the QuicKutz-die! :o)

Yesterday I did another LO for my Big Picture-class "Daily Dose". I really LOVE that class and I think the ideas were great! If they do this again be sure I sign in again! And we haven´t done the half projects now! ;o)

journaling: I love being creative. That´s why I love my space look creative and beautiful too.

Have a great day everybody! - Coni

Daily Dose - part 2

As I wrote I catch up with my "Daily Dose"-class yesterday! I did a new LO and a card:
This LO was made from a sketch. We could choose one from four themes to scrap about. I choose "What music do you like?" I used my new QuicKutz-Alphabet "Marisa" on it. I really like it! :o)
The card we should do should have a "heritage" look. Since this is not my style this was hard for me. But it also said that the card could be made fast and simple. So I used the stamp with the DaVinci-woman I have for a while now but never used it.
Here are some cards I did before we renewed our living-room and shortly after it.

Have a great day, everybody! - Coni

Daily Dose

Last saturday my new Big Picture Scrapbooking(BPS)-class started. It´s called Daily Dose and you get a creative idea and an photo-assignment every day. So far it´s really fun and I enjoy it. I´m one day "behind" today because I didn´t do the creative idea one day but I plan to catch up today. I already did these two LOs and one tag that could be used for journaling. Here they are:

I´m sorry the picture of the last one is really bad. The pic on it is sepia and the cardstock is brown. I don´t know why everything looks orange. I couldn´t fix it... :o(

Tomorrow I´ll start with two more classes at Big Picture: "The art of choosing joy" and "Doing it digi". I decided that this month will be my creative month! That´s why I signed up for so many classes. And honestly - I´m addicted!!! *lol* I already did "The Art of choosing joy" in the beginning of this year and it was awesome. I love that Big Picture invited me to come back again without paying anything. Woohoo! And I recieved a promo-code to safe $5 on another class from Paula Wells (who´s from BPS) who was guest-judge for week 1 of the "Summer of scraploving"-contest at Scraplove. That´s why I decide to sign up for "Doing it digi" too. I always wanted to try more digital-stuff. So here´s my chance! :o)

I hope I could show you a lot of new stuff this month and will blog as often as I can! :o)

Have a great day - Coni

New living-room

Wow, I haven´t blog for a long time. I was very busy and didn´t found the time. So there is a lot I could show today! :o)
This week was very busy because we did a renovation in our living-room. When we started to get all the stuff out of the room Andi decided that he would prefere new cabinets. So we drove to a near store and bought some new. ;o)
I will not describe what happend the follwing days but here´s what our living room looks in the end (which was yesterday morning):

I like the way the room looks now! :o) There is a lot of space now in our "office" because we put the dining-table in the living-room. I started to reorganize my scrapspace now but I´m not finished now. As soon as I am I will show you! :o)

Today I did the LO for the "Summer of Scraplovin´"-Contest at Scraplove. This weeks challenge was to do a LO about myself. I had to use a self-portrait and some paint. Here´s what I come up with:

(supplies: Bazill cs, pp: Chatterbox, flowers: Heidi Swapp, clips: Around the block, rub-on´s: Sassafras, title: Cricut)

Journaling: Today is a day like I like it. Today I eat breakfast with my hole familiy. Today I am creative. Today I lay lazy on my couch. Today I have no obligations or dates. I love days like TODAY! - 09/01/07

There was a bonus challenge this week also. It shows an advertisment which should inspire us. Here´s the LO I did:

(supplies: Bazill cs, flowers: Prima, sticker: Creative Memories & ???)

Jourmaling: I love your blue-green eyes!

Here are some cards I did last weekend when we visited Andis parents for the weekend. I really love those little kids and Ißm really sorry they don´t sell those stamps outside Sweden. that´s why I used a little trick to color them and use them on my cards. ;o)

Have a nice weekend! - Coni
