Papertrey Ink – May Blog Hop

It’s the 25th and that means it’s time for Papertrey Ink’s monthly blog hop. This is the Inspiration Picture we got to work with:

Blog Hop Inspiration

I was playing with my newest “Center Style: Feminine Die” and pulled out the “Lovely Layers Flower Dies” and comined the “Happiness in Bloom Leaves” to create the 3-d Flower. For the saying, I chose “Sentiment Signs” and for the finished touch i´ve added some sequins.  

I wonder how the other participants have interpreted the Challenge. Have a FUN Blog Hop ! Blog-hop-logo


I LOVE to read and so i´m making bookmarks from time to time. It´s also always a nice little gift. I mixed and matched Taylored Expressions and Papertrey Ink on this bookmark. Ich liebe es zu lesen und deshalb mache ich von Zeit zu Zeit Lesezeichen. Sie sind außerdem immer eine nette Geschenkidee.

I also join a crafty and chatty group at SCS where each month a new theme is chosen from a Bible verse. The keyword for May is Comfort . Reading brings ME comfort so the Bookmark is just right.  Ich bin außerdem in eine Gruppe auf SCS in der jeden Monat ein Thema aus einem Bibelvers gewählt wird. Das Schlüsselwort für Mai ist “Comfort”. Lesen bring mir Gemütlichkeit und deshalb ist das Lesezeichen gerade richtig.

Make it Monday # 283 – Watercoloring Wash Background

Laurie is up with this her first Make It Monday Video and she shared her tips creating a watercoloring wash background. Check out the Video here. I received my order yesterday and had to play with my new goodies directly. I use seldom watercolors and am not satisfied with this background – I still have to practice – but for the beginning it´s quite OK.

Laurie ist diese Woche an der Reihe mit “Make it Monday” und sie hat uns ihre Tricks verraten für einen wasserfarbenden Hintergrund. Ich habe gestern meine PTI Bestellung erhalten und musste direkt meine neuen Stempel ausprobieren. Ich verwende selten Wasserfarben und bin auch nicht ganz zufrieden mit dem Hintergrund – ich muss noch üben – aber für den Anfang ist es ganz OK.

Papertrey Ink – Choose Joy

This is my take for the “Crafters of Faith Group” at Splitcoaststampers. Jeanette is hostess in April and she wants to see a project that reflects JOY. Now my card is very colorful, a wild confusion of flowers and garlands – that brings JOY to me and i hope the recipient of the card as well. Das ist mein Beitrag für “Crafters of Faith Group” auf Splitcoaststampers. Jeanette ist Gastgeberin im April und sie wollte etwas sehen das Freude wiederspiegelt. Nun, meine Karte ist sehr bunt, ein wildes Durcheinander an Blumen und Girlanden – das macht mir Freude und ich hoffe dem Empfänger dieser Karte auch.
