happy adventure | paige evans


Hi everyone, I have a new layout for you. For this page I used three different Cut Files from Paige Evans, one of the new „rolled Flowers“, some layered Flowers (1 with leaves & 2) and a and “Flower Bunch” some mixed with bits from the new Horizon line and the Whimsical Collection.


I started with making the cut files much smaller and then I had a look into all of the Whimsical Papers, I knew I wanted to have my flowers all in blue/purple and pink. I grabbed Paper No.2, No.4, No.5, No.6, No.9, No.14 and Paper No.16 and placed them on my cutting mat. I used a different color for each layer of the flowers. The Flower Bunch was cut out from white cardstock. I used hot glue for the flower layers, it´s giving some dimension and it is very easy to use.



I placed the white flower cut on my white background and decided to go very clean and simple today. The rolled and layered flowers were placed on top of the white flowers; I added some matching thread behind them, just for some color details and texture. I added some blue leaves from the Mixed Floral Pack to the layered flowers, a pink Tag from the Ephemera Die Cuts and a piece patterned paper (No.5) were placed behind the photo and some Chipboard Sticker Hearts were scattered around the layout.


The title was created with a Chipboard Sticker from the Whimsical Collection and one from the Horizon Collection. There colors are perfectly matching. I placed some butterflies, from the Stickers, around the flowers and the final touches were some matching Enamel Dots, one Whimsical Puffy Sticker  and a little bit of journaling. This Layout came together pretty quickly and I really love how it turned out.


I hope you´re inspired to mix and match some cut files on your next project. Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting

dream | alexandra renke


hi everyone, i have a new layout for you.
i really love how this one turned out, i really love the simplicitiy and the „silence“…


i started here with a cool medium, called „Tacky-when-dry“ and this stuff is awesome…
the stencil i used is ‚Lotus Ornament‚ and the foil is used on top is from therm-o-web – iridescent irisado!


The papers i used are the following: ‚Green&Blue Eukalyptus‚ ‚Herzen Liebe‚ and ‚Hortensien in Schale‚ (the small piece i layered behind the picture). The Die behind the picture called ‚Delicate Sea Fan‚ and was heat embossed with Sea Salt WOW! embossing powder – included here in this awesome set


my background was created with two Magical Powders from Lindy´s Stamp Gang… i really love to play with these powders and the powders i used today are ‚Whale watch blue‚ and ‚Frolic in the forest green


the word dream and the little dark blue dots are foam thickers from Shimelle. I also added some thread behind the heart and some TIm Holtz tiny word stickers… they are always perfect for some tiny last details. i enjoyed this process and i love this layout!

I have a process video up on my YouTube Channel – CLICK HERE! thank you!


Soul Garden | Alexandra Renke


hi everyone, i have a new layout for you. I used some pretty awesome papers from Alexandra Renke, a Die from Hero Arts, Magicals for coloring and my background, texture paste from Schminke and WOW! embossing powder here… i really had the best of time and i was in the mood for a bright and colorful layout


i used different patterned papers here and i fussy cut a lot of the fruits from them ( ‚Erdbeeren‚ ‚Himbeeren‚ ‚Kirschen‚ ‚Pflaumen‚ ‚Aprikosen‚ ‚Brombeeren‚ & ‚Physalis

The colors i used for the flower coloring and the background are all from Lidy´s Gang and they called MAGICALS!! i love them so much, i can´t help myself but i could create with them on each and every layout…. have you tried them yet?


i found the quote on pinterest and i really like it. It´s reminds me of a good life that you should create for yourself and your loved ones… my hubby is my soul garden, even if i get no flowers 😉


i really love how the dark patterned paper (‚summerfeeling orientalisch sterne space‚)on the top brings everything together… there is the dark blue from the berries… the pink and also a touch of orange!


that´s it! i really hope you like this layout and if you want to watch the process video, please check out my YouTube Channel. thank you!

I got a some awesome stuff to play with and my first idea was to create some cards, which my mom ordered 😉


I used the ‚Paper Layering Koi Fish Die‚ for this project, mixed with some Magical Powders, WOW! Embossing Powder and the pretty awesome new Foil Quill Set from WeR Memory Keepers!! Just so much!


I colored a piece of white cardstock with the magical powder and used the Koi Die on it. I really love how they turned out. The cross was made with the Foil Quill Set and this new tool is a life changer!! I LOVE IT!


The stamp under the fish is an older one from Alexandra Renke, i just wanted to have something something peeking out from behind. i heat embossed it with a pretty blue WOW! embossing powder. The long gold word „Konfirmation“ was cut out with the silhouette and heat embossed four times. I realle love the 3D effect.


That´s it, thank you so much for stopping by

love this | Paige Evans & silhouette

Hi everyone, i am back again and I have a new layout to share with you. For this page I used two of Paige’s cut files: Love This and a Layered Butterfly. I used some bits from the new Horizon line and the Whimsical Collection.


I started by cutting the Love This from white cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo. I wanted to have the Layered Butterfly in some different pink shades so I cut the layers from Paper 02, Paper 09, and Paper 14 from Horizon then I stitched the butterflies together. I backed the open heart with a small photo from a cute little Mary Poppins. I left the other letters open because I wanted to have some white on white. Then I added mixed media to my background in two little areas. I grabbed some Shimmerz Paints Colors and a piece of plastic to smudge the color on the paper. The background turned out great and I placed the title on top of it.


Next I grabbed the Floral Die Cuts from Whimsical to add flowers; I used one of the bigger flower clusters and cut off the white boarder around it. I also had a look into the Floral Die Cuts from Horizon. I clustered the flowers together and placed some of them behind the picture. I also added some leaves and matching thread. I found a cute die cut in the Horizon Ephemera Die Cuts which I placed in one of the letters. I scattered some of the butterfly Rub-Ons from Whimsical around the flowers and the photo. I really love how easily they rub onto the paper – even on mixed media! To finish I placed Stickers and some gold heart stickers from the exclusive Project Pad.


I really hope you’re inspired to use a cute cut file by Paige very soon. Thanks so much for stopping by and I wish you all a great day!



weekend smiles | alexandra renke

hi everyone, i have a new layout for you… it´s for the Alexandra Renke Design Team and i really love how it turned out! I played with some new patterned papers and embossing powders from WOW! i added the embossing ink with a brayer to the paper and i really love how it looks!


You´ll find some pretty awesome new papers in the store… but i will link you to the ones i used and some of my favorites…. ‚Kranz mit Magnolien‚ i fussy cut the leaves and the pretty flowers, ‚summerfeeling orientalisch petrol‚ the paper i used on the left side and for the ornament under my picture, ‚Mandala outline‚ is the die i used…


I heat embossed one of the foam words and i happy that it worked that good. You just need to be careful when you peel the sticker off from the sticker sheet, the embossed part will break very easily. but i went over it twice and everthing is fine again… that yarn i used under some of the flowers are also available in the AR Store, NYMOGARN!


check out the WOW! store here and you´ll find all of the pretty stuff above… i also used some Magical powder on my background, called ‚salt water taffy


i also have a process video for you, ready to watch, on my youtube channel
thank you SO much for stopping by today



Hallo | Alexandra Renke

hi everyone, i have a new layout for you. i´ve made it with the april „kreativBox“ from Alexandra Renke. I also used some magical powders and starburst sprays from Lidy´s Gang for my mixed media background. I really love how this one turned out


I used some of the design papers for fussy cutting and one of the patterned papers for the middle piece on my layout… i just ripped it and curled up the edges, i really love the texture/dimension and the look of it.


The word ‚hallo‚ is a new die from Alexandra Renke and i heat embossed it with a bright pink powder from WOW! I also used some other Renke dies (1 & 2) for more embellishments under and the birds/leaves…


There is a process video up on my YouTube Channel, CLICK HERE if you want to watch it!


I also created a little tag set with the „kreativBox“ and some new Tag dies from Alexandra Renke…




that´s it for today
wishing all of you great weekend and happy crafting




adventure | paige evans & silhouette


Hi everyone, i am back again and I have a new layout for. For this page I used the Flower Wreath Cut File and some bits from the new Horizon and the Whimsical Collection.

I started with making the cut file smaller and cut the Flower Wreath on white Cardstock. I backed the open flowers with Paper No.09 from the Horizon Collection and the leaves with Paper No.01 and 05 from the Whimsical Collection.  I wanted to add some mixed media to my Background and I started with a stencil and my favorite Texture paste. Once that was dry I grabbed some Magical Powders for some pretty colors. I decided to go with pink and a tiny touch of mint.


The background turned out great and I placed the finished Flower Wreath on top of it. I grabbed the Flower Embellishment Pack from the Whimsical Collection to add some more. I also had a look into the Mixed Floral Embellishments from the Horizon Collection. I placed three more flowers on top of the Wreath; I really like how this is looking. The picture shows the dogs from my best friend and they are the cutest. I used a Paper from the 6×6 Paper Pad and some tissue Paper behind the photo.


I fussy cut some matching words from Horizon Paper No.04 for my title. I also mixed a Chipboard Sticker word from the Whimsical Collection to it. The final touches were some chipboard Hearts and some Stickers. I placed everything near the picture and I am totally in love with this project


I really hope you´re inspired to use a Flower Wreath Cut File very soon. I had so much fun and please, be sure to check out Paige´s cut files for ideas and inspirations. I always get ideas and I always find a perfect cut file for my next project! Thanks so much for stopping by and I wish you all a great day
