Traveler’s Notebook Layout: Hello Winter

Anzeige (Enthält Produktempfehlung) / Advertisement (Contains product recommendation) EnglishI’ve been working on a Traveler’s Notebook style mini album to scrap the photos from this past winter. We had an unusual amount of snow that lasted longer than the usual two days, and as always – we made the most of it. And I wanted to preserve the memories in a little traveler’s notebook album. I used the paper pad Winter Forest and created my first page using a bit of mixed media with watercolor paint splats and stamps. And I also ran the paper through my sewing machine. The full album can be seen on Youtube. DeutschIch habe angefangen, an einem Traveler’s Notebook Mini Album zu arbeiten, um Fotos vom letzten Winter zu verarbeiten. Wir hatten ungewöhnlich viel Schnee, der auch länger als sonst liegenblieb. Und wie immer haben wir das voll ausgekostet. Da wollte ich die Erinnerung festhalten, in Form eines Traveler’s Notebook Albums. Hierfür habe ich Papiere von “Winter Forest” verwendet, und auf dieser ersten Seite auch verschiedene Medien verwendet: Wasserfarbe, Stempel, und …

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.
