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!
thank you so much for stopping by today

YOU & ME | Alexandra Renke

hi there, i have a new layout to share. This one was created with different collections from Alexandra Renke. I´ll link you to the products as i go…


i started with fussy cutting some pretty leaves and flowers from these papers: „Schmetterlinge Glück beginnt…“, „Schmetterlinge Glück ist…“ and „Schmetterlinge einzigartig...“ the pretty hearts were punched out from followin papers… „Herbst ruhiges rosa„, „Herbst ruhiges coral“ and „Herbst Wellensittich


I used some magical powders for my mixed media background… „Frolic in the forest green“ and „whale watch blue„. The picture shows me and my little sister, a very rare picture. The alphas are from my stash and i think i found the perfect ones for this page.

hallo pinguin | alexandra renke

hi there and welcome back to my blog, i haven´t posted in a while but life is busy and sometimes my days are not long enough…

to day i want to share a fun new layout for the Alexandra Renke team and i am working with august KreativBox.


I decided to work with a grid design today, just because of the busy patternes… the square are 2×2 and i really love how it turned out. I distressed all of the egdes and added a layer of acrylic texture paste to calm down some of the patternes. I also wanted to bring in a lot of mixed media… there is a stencil image on top of the papers too.


I used Magicals for my background – „Whale Watch Blue“ „Lucky Shamrock Green“ and „Afternoon Delight Denim“ – some of my favorites!! The little turquoise dots „India“ are a nice touch and they are matte… so cute!


The word „Hallo“ is a Die and used it double and i also heat embossed it with a mix from two WOW! embossing powders… „Earthtone Pepper“ and „Metallic Copper Super Fine


there are some vellum corals behind the picture and some other little DieCuts scattered around everywhere… but i can´t link you to them right now… but i will when they´re online…


some sequins and paper quilling tears/drops to finish this layout. I really love how it turned out and i hope you´ll like it too.. check out my YouTube Channel for a process Video. thanks for stopping by today


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!

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!

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…

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

hallo happiness | Alexandra Renke

hi everyone, i have a fun new layout for you… i´ve told you already that i´ve met Alexandra Renke and some of the Design Team at the creativa, back in march, right?!
Today i decided to scrap two pictures from one of the days. It shows me, Kerstin, Judith, Andrea and Alexandra! I loved the time so very much and i miss talking to the creative ladies daily…


i started this project with a design paper and my small scissors… i wanted to fussy cut aaaaall of the pretty flowers!! they are SO awesome! I also used a cut file from Paige Evans for my background, just a small detail, peeking out from behind… i really love how the white on white looks!


There are some matching splatters around the cut fiel and the flowers. they are matching the watercolors perfectly… colors i used: summer lovin‘ sun, orange creamsicle, pretty in pink pink, salt water taffy and cape cod coral!

The word ‚hallo‚ is a new die and embossed it with a powder from WOW! called ‚Metalline Flame Regular‚ and i love it!

happy spring | alexandra renke


hi everyone, i have a new layout to share! i used some pretty Alexandra Renke things for this project and i really love how it turned out. The patterned papers from AR are perfect for fussy cutting, but that is nothing new to you, right?


I started here with fussy cutting some purple leaves and the cute little fawns… i also punched some scalloped boarders from different papers (1, 2, 3 and 4) and added wonky tissue paper ones, too. I wanted to layer a lot of things on this page… and i did!


The paper with the little hearts is so cute and perfect for little details. the word happy, above the word spring, is from a ‚happy easter typo‘ Die and it looks perfect there… the tiny word stickers are all from Tim Holtz and guess what i used for the pretty background?! Yes, you´re right… magical powder from Lindy´s!


The word ’spring‘ comes from a big alpha set from American Crafts and it brings the colors from the fawns again and i love how it looks on top of the scallop boarders. i stitched everything together and i did not cut off the thread ends. I love the extra texture!



i am SO in love and i really hope you like it too! i also have a process video for this one and if you want to watch it… please feel free to CLICK HERE!
