Freebie: 5×5 Stringed Mini Album with Gusset Pages

Anzeige (Enthält Produktempfehlung) / Advertisement (Contains product recommendation) It’s been a while since I shared my last freebie, but Christmas is always a good time for giving. 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 …

2018 December Journaling Card Inspiration

2018 Dezember Karten Inspiration Today I thought I’d show you the journaling cards I’ll be using for my December Album this year. I designed most of them for last year’s Document December Album, loved how they turned out and decided I wanted to use them again. I merely switched the colors to match this year’s project. I’d love to share them with you. However, I’m not sure about copyright/ commercial rights of the fonts I used. Of course, sharing them as freebies, I wouldn’t make any money off these cards, and sharing them in flattened png images, they wouldn’t be of use to anyone else, still, I haven’t figured out whether using them to share with you guys is legal, and I don’t want to get into trouble over something that I give away as freebies. If any of you know the details about copyright laws, etc. you’re welcome to drop a comment below to point me in the right direction. Till then, hopefully, the least these cards can do is inspire your own projects. Heute dachte ich …

Document December 2018 – A First Glimpse

Anzeige (Enthält Produktempfehlung) / Advertisement (Contains product recommendation) Mein Weihnachtsalbum 2018 – Ein erster Einblick My favorite time of year is just around the corner, and I’m truly excited. December, however, usually is also the busiest month of the year for me, what with all the traditions and the celebrations. At the same time, I love doing Document December projects to commemorate the season. Last year, I bought a pretty Christmas paper pack that I was eager to use. But all the while I was wondering: How can I embark on another December Daily journey without it taking too much of my time? The answer: A super simple album that I prepare ahead of time, and that I then only need to fill with photos and journaling. So, I can honestly say, I’ve never been so on top of things with my DD projects as this year. The album is already done, and all I need to add is the photos and journaling cards, and I’ll have lots of time for other things. Now, I just need to wait for the season to actually start. Die …

Document Christmas 2016 – Week 5 Recap

Mein Weihnachtsalbum 2016 – Wochenrückblick #5 I finished scrapping another week of my December Daily, and with the foundation template I’ve been using this year, it’s all going pretty well. Admitted, I got behind for various reasons, but I’m still enjoying working on my pages. Take a look at what was going on during week 5 (Images are linked for product info): Ich habe eine weitere Woche meines Weihnachtsalbums fertiggestellt und  mit der Vorlage, die ich mir erstellt habe (und auch euch zur Verfügung gestellt habe), klappt das ziemlich gut. Zugegeben, inzwischen hänge ich aus verschiedenen Gründen hinterher, aber ich habe immer noch Freude daran, neue Seiten zu erstellen. Hier seht ihr, was in Woche 5 los war (Bilder sind zu Produktinfo verlinkt):

Document Christmas 2016 – Week 4 Recap

Mein Weihnachtsalbum 2016 – Wochenrückblick #4 Ok, I admit it: I’ve gotten a bit behind with my December Daily at this point. But it’s still all good. I finished scrapping my fourth week, and with the foundation template I’ve been using this year, I’m still not feeling overwhelmed by the task. Take a look at what was going on during week 4 (Images are linked for product info): Also, ich gebs ja zu, ich bin mit meinem Weihnachtsalbum ein bisschen in Verzug gekommen. Aber das ist kein Problem. Ich habe jetzt die vierte Woche fertiggestellt und  mit der Vorlage, die ich mir erstellt habe (und auch euch zur Verfügung gestellt habe), fühl ich mich dieses Jahr trotzdem nicht unter Druck. Hier seht ihr, was in Woche 4 los war (Bilder sind zu Produktinfo verlinkt):      

Document Christmas (Or: December Daily) – 2016

Dokumentiere Weihnachten (oder: December Daily) 2016 Whaaa! It’s that time of year again, to get going on that Christmas album. I’ve been doing it for six years now (I think) and it’s always such a wonderful experience. Of course, as usual, I’m kind of late with starting to talk about it here just now, but then, we still have about two weeks to go until December. For my part, I’ve decided to go all digital again this year. Did an all out hybrid album last year, which turned out beautiful (and I’m going to share the details with you on Thursday in my hybrid post, since I never shared any of it with you last year). But since I’m too busy for doing a hybrid album this year, I’m glad I do have the digital alternative, which does go a lot faster. For those of you who have never done a Christmas album, or are looking for more ideas or inspiration, check out my post from two years ago, titled “Document Christmas – 5 Good Reasons …

Document Christmas 2014 – Week 5 Recap (Part 1)

Weihnachtsalbum 2014 – Woche 5 Rückblick (Teil 1) Here’s the next part of my weekly recaps. Except that, this week there were so many special activities that I decided to make a page for each event. Which also means that there’ll be more pages than usually, so I decided to divide this week’s review. Therefore, you get the first part today. Hier ist der nächste Teil meiner wöchentlichen Rückblicke. Allerdings gab es diese Woche so viele besondere Aktivitäten, dass ich beschlossen habe, eine extra Seite für jedes Event zu erstellen. Das heißt allerdings auch, dass es diesmal mehr Seiten als sonst gibt. Also habe ich mich dafür entschieden, den Rückblick diese Woche aufzuteilen. Hier bekommt ihr also den ersten Teil.                

Document Christmas 2014 – Week 1 Recap

Weihnachtsalbum 2014 – 1. Wochenrückblick   So, now that you know all about my Document Christmas 2014 project from Tuesday’s post, I’m actually ready to start sharing my first couple of page spreads. (Keep in mind, they’ll be printed, cut, and assembled in an A5-size album.) I started my album this last Wednesday (when I decided to decorate my home for Christmas) and below you can see my first four pages. By the way, I made my own photo pockets for this project (on these pages you can see their actual sizes), and if you’d like to find out how to get them before I start posting them, you can check out yesterday’s blog post. Also, nun, da ihr ja alles über mein Weihnachtsalbum 2014 wisst (falls nicht, schaut mal im Artikel vom letzten Dienstag nach), bin ich jetzt soweit, dass ich euch meine ersten Seiten zeigen kann. (Zur Erinnerung: Ich drucke meine Seiten auf A4 Papier, zerschneide sie und füge sie am Ende in einem A5 Album zusammen.) Ich habe mein Album letzten Mittwoch …

Hybrid Hub: Autumn Mini Album

Bastelecke: Herbst Minialbum   I’ve been telling you about the mini albums I’ve been working on over the last couple of months. So, I’m finally ready to start showing them to you. This one I actually started working on a year ago, but only recently did I finally get to print and cut everything to put it together. It’s a really simple one that didn’t take much time at all to put together. Ich habe euch von den Minialben erzählt, an denen ich in den letzten Monaten gearbeitet habe. Und jetzt komme ich endlich mal dazu, sie euch zu zeigen. An diesem einfachen kleinen Album habe ich schon vor einem Jahr angefangen zu arbeiten. Aber erst kürzlich habe ich es endlich mal ausgedruckt, ausgeschnitten und zusammen gesetzt. Es zu basteln hat dann auch gar nicht lange gedauert.              

Hybrid Hub: DIY Mini Album “Mainau”

Bastelecke: DIY Minialbum “Mainau”   Hi friends, I’m back to share with you another mini album that I made not too long ago. This one’s definitely the most fancy one I ever did. It comes with lots of flaps, pockets, and many things to discover. It also has lots of room for photos. I made it using a combination of digital and traditional scrapbooking products as well as some Silhouette cutting files. The main products used are the digital scrapbooking kit “Don’t Cry, Blue Skies” by Libby Pritchett & Mari Koegelenberg, and the sticker and ephemera parts of the Hello Sunshine Collection by Pink Paislee.   Hallo Freunde! Ich bin zurück, um euch ein weiteres Minialbum zu zeigen, dass ich vor nicht allzu langer Zeit gebastelt habe. Dies ist definitiv das aufwändigste Album, dass ich je erstellt habe. Es hat viele Taschen, Laschen und Klappseiten und es gibt viel zu entdecken. Es hat auch viel Platz für jede Menge Fotos. Für die Erstellung des Albums habe ich eine Kombination von digitalen und traditionellen Scrapbooking Produkten …
