beautiful chaos | Alexandra Renke

hi there, i´ve a new layout to share… i got/bought some pretty new things from Alexandra Renke Erlebniswelt and i started right away…


I started on the „Pünktchen auf Hellgrau“designpaper, with a stencil „Orient-Mandala rund“ and super heavy gesso! I love the texture… my mixed media was created with a few Lindy´s products, awesome new stamps „Les Textures Graffitis“ and black acrylic ink splatters.


I used the „Leafy Branch 3“ die on the pretty „Teppich dunkelviolett“ paper… love the dark accent leaves! i also used „Eukalyptus Äste“ and „Blätterzweig“ die for some more floral elements… I colored a white cardstock with „cape cod coral“ and used the „Kornblumen“ die for the flowers…


The „Linienkreis“ stamp was also used for some texture and contrast on the background. Can you spy the cute rabbit? There is a cute easter collection coming your way, very soon!! but i totally love that cute detail there…


The word „love“ is from an older chipboard sticker sheet from my stash. i heat embossed it with the WOW! „Black Puff! embossing powder. It´s a cool effect and makes the title pop off the page, right?!


i added some sequins from my stash and some Tim Holtz tiny word stickers to finish this page. I really love how this layout turned out and i really hope you´re inspired to make a mess on your next project.

tree hug | mixed media

hi everyone, welcome back to a new layout…

i found a, new to me, manufacture/designer called MINTAYpapers and i saw the booth at the creativeworld in frankfurt. i really love some of the designs, the patterns and the fact that you can buy a 6×8 paper pad just for fussy cutting…. what?!


I did a lot of fussy cutting, as you see on that layout. but there are so many papers were you can cut out the pretty things! i used „wilderness“, „life stories“ and the 6×8 paper pad today. I also used some new Lindy´s products, some super heavy chunky embossing powders….


i heat embossed the wreath with „Silence is golden“ but tried the „Tin Roof, Rusted!“ first, both are inlcuded in the Metal Maniacs set! LOOOOOVE them!


I added some texture with some heavy gesso and a stencil, i also primed some of the background paper with gesso, just because i knew i wanted to add some mixed media (My Mojito Green and Down the Rabbit Hole) to it. the mintay papers are in a very good quality, but water always makes the paper buckle. and we all know, gesso helps a lot to mix and blend the colors…


my final touches were the little short title and some enamel dots! i call it a layout! and i love it… what about you?
I am always happy when i found some new products and the fact that i can buy them here in germany… it´s not always that easy.

liebe | Alexandra Renke

Hi everyone, long time no see…. i need to work on that and i am saying that for a long time now, right?! but let´s start with a new layout for today, ok?

i´ve made it with some awesome new things by Alexandra Renke and also some pretty colors from Lindy´s Gang! i love to mix them together


I started with new patterned papers, „viele kleine Herzen„, „liebesbriefe„, „Teppich pastell„, „Teppich coral“ and „Teppich lindgrün„… some cute heat dies „Rahmen Herz“ and „Herzrahmen„…


i layered five hearts together and stitched through them with my sewing machine. i let the thread ends on them, i wanted to have a look from some kind of ballons… love it!
my background was made with a stencil and texture paste…


the word „liebe“ is also from a die and i layered three pieces together and added some heat embossing on top. i love how the 3D looks on little words… the colors on the background paper are from Lindy´s Gang and they call Squirts Canadian Bacon Blush and Down the rabbit hole… love how they are looking mixed into each other


the little envelopes are fussy cut from a patterned paper and my finishing touches are some enamel dots and sequins! i am very deeply in love with this project…

christmas for you | alexandra renke

(german post only)
Hallo ihr Lieben, herzlichen Willkommen zum heutigen Alexandra RenkeWeihnachten für dich“ Bloghop. Weiter unten findet ihr eine lange Liste mit Links… es sind wirklich ein ganze Menge Projekte zu bewundern…
Also, Tasse Tee oder Kaffee holen und genießt die tollen Inspirtionen.


Aber erstmal was zu meiner Story hinter dem „Weihnachten für dich“
Ich arbeite in der Altenpflege in einer kleinen Senioren WG (Schwerpunkt Demenz, wie ihr euch denken könnt ist es nicht immer ganz einfach in der Pflege. Auch wir stossen immer wieder an unsere Grenzen… aber dann betritt man ein Bewohner Zimmer und wird freudig empfangen und schon ist alles wieder gut!) und es ist ein tolles Team, richtig tolle liebe Kolleginnen und denen möchte ich mit meinem Projekt eine kleine Freude machen und mal Danke sagen. Danke für die tolle Zusammenarbeit, danke für den Austausch und auch Danke fürs Ohr leihen (jammern, aufregen, schimpfen oder auch mal weinen)…
Meine Laterne schenkt also etwas Licht und soll für die Hoffnung stehen. Die Hoffnung das alles gut wird oder bleibt! DANKE!!


Hier seht ihr ein Foto von meinem Material, ich habe schöne Renke Papiere ausgesucht, dazu Dies und ein richtig tolles Papier Garn – paperphine. Da kann man so tolle Blätter draus formen. Ich habe es bei einiger meiner DT Kolleginnen gesehen und bewundert. MEGA!


Die Schneeflocken sind ebenfalls aus dem Renke Haus und aus dem goldenen Glitzer Papier wirken sie so richtig edel und weihnachtlich… Meine Materialien sind alle relativ neutral gehalten, also von den Farben. Das Gold passt ganz wunderbar zu dem tollen Paperphine Bändern und den Renke papieren…


Hier könnt ihr das Garn sehen, bereits zu Blättern geformt. I LIKE!!!


Aus dem Paperphine Garn habe ich mir ein paar Blätter in verschiedenen Längen erstellt, sie zusammen mit Papieren, einem Schriftzug und etwas Garn gelayert und an der Laterne befestigt. Der Schriftzug „frohes Fest“ wurde mehrmals gestanzt, zusammen geklebt und mit goldenem Embossing Pulver von WOW! embosst. Ich mag diesen 3D look total!


Der Rohbau der Laterne wurde aus dem Hauskollektions Papier geschnitten und die Cameo Datei habe ich mir im Silhouette Store gekauft. Ich liebe diese kleine schnuckelige Laterne sehr…  Die „Fenster“ habe ich mit Vellum hinterlegt und es befindet sich eine kleine Lichterkette im inneren. Man könnte aber auch ein kleines elektrisches Teelicht hineinstellen…



Hier nun die Link Liste

Andrea S.
Diana W.
Frau Pony
Jana (Das bin ich)
Kerstin M.
Susanne T.

Das waren sie, all die lieben tollen Kreativen die sich was zu diesem tollen Thema haben einfallen lassen… ich freue mich jetzt schon auf´s hüpfen und wünsche euch ebenfalls ganz viel Spaß dabei!







Ink Pad Release Blog Hop | PinkfreshStudio


Hi there, i am so excited to join this new release blog hop…
There are 48 Colors in 12 color families!! I got the small ink cubes and I had the best of time swatching them, trying and stamping…


I played with the new stamp set sparkle with magic  to create some evergreen branches and a wreath. I layered four to five colors and i really love how they turned out. The word XMAS was created with the ADORE alpha stamps and the matching dies.

But now, let´s have a look at my project for the BlogHop…


I also worked with the new „Home for the Holidays“ Collection for this layout. You can see how i used my evergreen branches here… i also stamped the letters with MINT from the Garden Stroll Set.


The splatters were also created with the inks, i just added a touch of water to it. worked perfectly fine!


I did a lot of fussy cutting on some pretty patterned papers from the „home for the holidays“ collection. I used a piece of packaging for my letter die cutting. I really love the colors here, the soft mint tone is one of my favorites!


The pciture shows me, with a funny snapchat filter on top… the beard was bright pink and i needed to change the color. but i love the silver one too!
Check out my YouTube channel for a process Video… thank you!

ocean | alexandra renke


hi there, welcome back… i have new layout to share! I created this one with two new collections from Alexandra Renke „Autumn Colors“ and „Wild & Calm Basics


I am having a rough time (seriously hard…) i can´t even find the right words to describe what´s going on…. but today i felt something like hope! so i grabbed some pretty things to get it even more outside, sounds pretty weird, right?! nevermind… enough nonsense from me!


i started this layout with blue papers, design papers for fussy cutting and die to get some pretty things out of white cardstock! the picture shows my middle one, ten years ago.. having the best of times at the beach/ocean! i miss that time, so much!


i layered everything pretty close to the picture and in the lower right corner, i love how it looks… i also punched out some tiny hearts from the same blue papers and placed them on top. i love the tone on tone look!


that´s it!
