Second attempt:)

I thought I published this post but it seems  that I saved it as a "concept"..........
Second attempt; here we go! 

I hope you are going to enjoy this holiday season.  Due to that I am taking a blog break till January 1st. Wishing you the happiest of holidays!



Alexandra Renke Blog Hop

Hello and good evening:)

Together with Cornelia and Nicole it's my turn today to share my projects for the Advent Blog Hop from Alexandra Renke: You can find all her fabulous designs in her Erlebniswelt.
At first I want to thank Alexandra for being a part of this amazing Advent Blog Hop. Alexandra sent me a huge kit filled with lovely
 supplies in a neutral/rustic colour palette. 

Goal of this blog hop is to thank someone special. I choose my sister  Jacqueline.

Jacqueline means the world to me. She is warm, loving, caring, witty and  an amazingly talented quilter and paper crafter.
2016 has been a rough year for Jacqueline. There was a lot to deal with but she's  strong and 2017 will be her year.  To show her a bit of my love and  being thankful for having her as a sister I created a few items.
A little gift bag filled with a tube of soothing hand cream. The sentiment was made with  an art screen from the kit;  an instant favorite:) Topped of with rustic twine  and a lovely ornament:

And a box:

On top of …

White Christmas


I guess I am not the only one who is knee deep  in all the Holiday preparations. I really have no idea what happened  with the last two weeks :) Besides applying for a new job (no results yet)  there was an endless to do list,  lots of shopping and multiple visits to the post office.
I didn't have much time for blogging;   If I have not been apologies. It's not a matter of interest but definitely not enough time.
All the Christmas cards are sent and  I want to share one of them.
White on white. CAS.  A small touch of colour...

A star embossing folder; a tree, a star and some twine. Less is more; at least for me:)

There is a busy and fun week ahead; I hope you all have the time and chance to  enjoy this festive time of the year.
Thanks for stopping by!

City Crafter #341

Hello and good morning!
It's my turn to host this
weeks' challenge at theCity Crafter.

I picked the theme:
"The tree is up"
i am asking you to feature a christmas tree on your project. And I thought this would be a fun photo to get inspired:


I used a few left overs from a paperpad that I really loved.

It's a paper pad from Pink Fresh Studio  and a white tree as a focal point:

Looking for inspiration? You can see more projects from 
the other team members

Use your paper pads:)

So did I:)
I have a variety of cards to share;  made with various paper pads. Somewhere this spring I already sorted  out and decreased my stash.  I tend to hold them all but after years of papercrafting  there will always be something new  that looks even more gorgeous:)  And the holidays are a perfect  reason to use up your paper pads.
The sentiments I used are all from Papertrey Ink.
Here we go!  Made with papers from Fancy Pants:

That's all for now but I am still working on more:)

Have a wonderful wekeend! Stella
