I wanted to do another LO and I knew that I wanted to use this beautiful rub-on from the Amy Butler-Collectin for K&Company. It´s unusual for me to start with materials. Usually I start with the story or the photo.

When I searched for a fitting pic I came across this pic of Alicia and me and thought it was perfect - especially because she loves glitter on her LOs too! ;o)

Here´s a Close-Up of the rub-on. Unfortunatly you can´t really see that the rub-on itself is glittered and that the rheinstones are white and green. :o(

And so more bling ;o) :

Journaling: "We know each other for just a short time but we immidiatly understand each other and became friends."

I´m curious to see her reaction! :o)

At the moment I´m working on my stuff for my Guest-Design-Team-Membership in June at Scraplove. I can´t show you now but I can tell you that I REALLY love the stuff I got! :o))

Have a sunny day! - Coni

As I wrote in my last post I wanted to do something that´s not a card. So this is the project that was laying on my desk.

I made a wall decor for our niece. She likes cats a lot (far as I know) so I wanted to use the cute image of Rachelle Anne Miller.

Here´s the whole thing:

Unfortunatly Blogger just shows a very small image. If you click on the pic you can see it in a bigger size! And here´s a close-up of the image I used:

I hope she´ll like it! And since she has a new brother since April I guess I need to do another wall-decor soon! ;o)

Have a great day! - Coni

Cards, cards, cards

I´ve done a lot of cards lately. I was in the mood to stamp so everytime I had the time I just did it (I just wish I would have had more time!). So here are the cards I did.

This reindeer is so funny! I just love the way it looks and it does exactly what I love to do to relax: comfort place, legs up, something hot to drink (for me a steamer with coconut-flavour *yummy*) and a cupcake with a lot of frosting! Perfect!!!

The next one I made for a swap. We should use the initial of our recipients name. My card was for Domi so I came up with this idea when I was searching my stamps for the image. I´m glad she really like it!

This card I did just for fun. I wanted to do it like a card for a little girl - since there is this cute little girl on it. So I used a lot of bling and pastell colours.

To make the card even more I coloured it with my Twinklings H2Os and put some stickles on the little hearts. Here´s a close up so you can see it (hopefully!):

There are some Stampin´Up-workshops on my calendar. So I need to do some more examples. And I had this beautiful background-stamp for a while now and finally wanted to use it. I think it´s so beautiful!!! I thought it doesn´t need a lot besides it:

This is another just for fun card. When I saw the image of this cute hÄnglar & stÄnglar-stamp I immidiatly thought: "Oh, she´s soo sweet!". So when I looked for the sentiment and came across the "Sweet one"-stamp by Stampin Up! I knew I wanted to do this:

Close up:

Right now I have a new project laying on my desk. I hope to finish it today. And it´s NOT a crad! *lol* I´m thinking about updating my english blog as often as my german one in the future I hope you like to read more from me! ;o)

Have a great day! - Coni

Happy birthday sista!

Yesterday was my sisters birthday and we celebrated it in the evening. I´m so glad I have a sis like her. She is one of my closest friends too! Love her!!!

I made this card for her:

The special thing about this card is that I made it with an overlay. I saw some card cut out of 12x12´´ overlays in magazines and online. But since I do most of my card like postcards I thought about using an overlay that is the size of a card (or actually a photo).

I had so much fun doing this! This way I needed to take care about the back of my card too. I don´t do backsides often and I usually don´t care about them. But here I had to. But this way you have the opportunity to see both sides of the beautiful patternd papers! :o) And here´s my backside:

I adhered the pp on the back of the overlay (with gluedots for vellum so it´s unvisible) and the stamped image and the flowers on the front. The sentiment is stamped directly on the overlay with StazOn.

I had so much fun doing this card that I´m sure I´ll do something transparent again soon. I already have something on my mind! ;o)

Have a great day!

Our honeymoon

Here I am again - finally! I´m sorry I didn´t updated my english blog for so long. I guess I should be here more often again! ;o)

Andi and I´ve been on our honeymoon´in Fort Lauderdale/Florida. We had such a GREAT time!!! The weather was just perfect (no rain) and we had so much fun! We relaxed a lot and just did what was on our mind. And doesn´t the beach and the palms look beautiful? Ah, I wish I could go right back! ;o)

On special thing on our trip was a weekend where we met some of the girls (and some of their dh´s) from Scraplove. I was a little afraid because of the language and if we still like each other when we´ll met in real life for the first time. But all my fears faded when we met. These girls were just AWESOME and if I liked them at Scraplove and can now say that I love them! Thanks to all of them (and their dh´s) for making our honeymoon a little more special!

I know some people say I´m crazy but I scrap and stamp on vacations too. I´m addicted to this so why should I miss this during a vacation? It made my time just better! ;o) So one evening I scrapped this LO with pics of the lovelies:

We didn´t just relax and meet the girls. We also went shopping *lol* and we´ve been to Butterfly World. It was a wonderful trip!! I´ve never before seen so many butterflies. There were thousands in all sizes and colours! And they even sit on us! Here are a few pics I took so many that I could scrap albums with them! ;o)

This one flew right on Andis head:

I saw hummingbirds there of the first time too. They are really beautiful and stunnig - so small and their wings flatter sooo fast! Amazing!

We really had a wonderful vacation! I´m sure that I´ll never ever forget it! And we already decided to go back to the States as soon as possible again! :o)

Have a great day!
