White Chocolate with Vanilla Crescents and Gingerbread Spice | Weiße Schokolade mit Vanillekipferln und Lebkuchengewürz

I just made the yummiest hot chocolate ever and it was the easiest thing ever. And of course, I had to share it with you here. So, this is what I did: Ich habe gerade die leckerste heiße Schokolade meines Lebens getrunken, und es war super simpel. Da dachte ich mir doch gleich, das muss ich mit euch teilen. Hier ist wie’s geht:

This time I have something for Silhouette Studio users. I love creating mini albums, and over that last couple of years, I’ve created a good number of them. This one I designed completely from scratch to use with 5×5 inch paper sizes. You see, recently I found these adorable 10 inch paper packs that I fell in love with. And they were perfect to cut down to 5 inch paper sizes. So, I needed an album to go with it. The albums I have in my Silhouette library are all exactly 5×5, for which I’d either have to cut down the papers a bit, or resize the album, but that often messes with thee proportions. Or the library albums had very rounded corners, or … you get the idea. So, I decided to start with a true 5×5 inch paper size and design my album around it. I …
