Crafting ABC - General Informations

Hello my dear followers,
I'm sooooooooooo super excited to start this new segment at my blog.
I will post per Month one Letter ( and I'm already sorry i might need to make my first break in September because I will not be at home for a whole month and the Letter of the month has a lot of Projects). In case I have letters with only one or two Projects i might combine them with the next letter. But I'm not 100% sure about that yet. I will also put up a Linky for some Projects, so we can all learn from each other. Not every word will have a big Project following, but i will try my best to do as much as i can with the words. I will do some videos for sure and maybe even giveaways. I mean my next USA trip is in less then 2 months^^.

Come back tomorrow to see the first actual Crafting ABC post.

So i see you back soon. Stay tuned.

MPS Color Challenge

Hi ladies,
its me again.
I just saw that MPS is doing a color Challange.


Orange, Turquoise, and Green (any other colors can be added).

So this is what i came uo with.


I got the idea for the shape of my card from MOMO. Basicly i used my Gypsy and welded 2 Shaped tags from Once upon a Princess together.
I know i also think it still looks kind of plain.....If you have any ideas how i can make it look better, just comment and let me know. The tag is also from Once upon a princess and the stamp from Sunshine Artz. The Little butterfly is from the Stamps of life Butterfly2build set.

Cartridge: Once upon a Princess

Wichtel Giveaway for Regina







Hi my dear friends,
Regina signed up (on accident^^) for my big yearly Handmade giveaway....So i was really creative this weekend.
I saw a nice recipe for homemade Jelly on friday at work (looking at a cooking magazin coz we didnt had much to do at work) and i really wanted to try it myself.
So i did. On saturday i made my very first own jelly with Applejuice, Strawberries and lemon balm.
I made 3 glasses full^^ so i decided to give one to Regina.



I also made a Recipe Book with it and a cute card using Sunshine Artz "Einfach so" Stampset.
Fore the recipe book i made tabs with my corner Rounder and gave the book some catigories.
I really like how it turned out. Since i made Strawberry Jelly i but i pic of a really nice looking strawberry on the cover.
Yummy isnt it?










For the card i used the same paper and Ribbin as i did for the book. The Stamps that i used is the "Grüße" as a backgroundborder and for the Text on the card i used "Einfach nur so".





And here you see a pic of the jelly glass^^
On top of it i cut out a cirlce with the Strawberry paper and Stamp "ein kleiner Gruß" on it.

Punch: corner Rounder
Stamp: Sunshine Artz Einfach so

Sunshine Artz Stamp Haul

Hello my dear friends,
today i got my from Stempel Phantasien. The Real cool part about that page is that you can make your OWN Clear Stamps there. My Mom is always complaining that i only do English cards and No German onces. The Reason for that is 1. I just love english and 2. i do not really own good german journal stamps. So i found Sunshine Artz Blog and she designes German phrases. She also lets you download them for free. So all you need to do is find a page like Stempel Phantasien and order them. AND I DID IT. I downloaded all 5 Sets she has out right now.
I orderd a XMAS Set, Thanks, Just Because, and 2 Birthday sets with German Phrases.
She is also giving you some cute Labels for all Stamp sets so all you need to do is print them out.
I started cutting them into the size i need coz i only got them in ONE piece (6x4). I already love them and Can not wait to work with them.
The next time i will order there i will probably get a stamo saying Handmade by Scrapente and my Blogadress on it. But i'm not sure....The Prices for making your own stamps are really ok. For 6x4 you pay 13.90€ which is about 20$. OK the Dollar price is alot but you do not really get stamps in germany under 15€ (at least not that many^^) So i think it was ok. Making your own stamp 1,5x1,5 will be only 2.50€ so 3,60$.

I also have some pics for you how I'm storing some of the Cards I made. I bought that red Table chart at Target for 1$ and put it on top of my 5x5 Cube Expedit shelf from Ikea. I can fit 6-10 cards on each side and that way they dont end up in a box and will never be seen again.
