Altered Book Nutcracker Suite

Hi romantic fan's,
the time was right for a new christmas gift, she is also a great ballet fan as I and admired my altered book from last year. Perhaps so I think, it's a good idea to make a little surprise in addition to the tickets, which she becomes from her friend.

Mix from various beautiful stamps and scrapbookpaper - La Blanche + Graphic 45
icecicle, branches, snowflakes dies, embossing folder Sizzix (music notes)
punches, Distress inks vintage, peacock feathers, walnut stain, black soot

the stamp motives were painted with distress inks

Clara and her best friend the nutcracker

 motif was cut from a scrapbook paper (Graphic 45)
 little rock ballet originated from a punched snowflake

I want to entering my altered book into the following Challenges:

Live & Love Craft's inspiration With Love
Ballet theme: Clara and the nutcracker
Nutcracker suite, embossed music notes background
 love the altered art style and the Tim Holtz (Ranger) beautiful distress inks are ideally suited to this, I don't know any better

 Thanks for stoppy by today and having a peek at my blog! 

 I hope you all have a wonderful christmas time!

Winter Wonderland

Welcome dear scrappers,

It's December, christmas stress is in full swing, take a break and dreams of winter landscapes in bright sunshine. Clear winter air, glittering icicles and hiking through the winter forest, for many of us, at least for Christmas only a fairy tale.


 the journalling is behind the photo

Season's greetings

a winter's tale
a dream of ice and snow
take a break and relax for a moment

 I had no blue cardstock and
so I have one piece wallpaper used, for example it's pretty exciting what arise effects with spray paints

 I'm entering my LO into the following challenges:

Inspiration: colour blue and white, winter forest, snowflakes

Inspiration: Winter Chill , winter forest

(on icecicles and background)

Enjoy your christmas time!!

Joy to you

Hi crafty friends,

this month's there will be no challenge, instead we have a

By now most of you should be in X-mas preparations mood and maybe Steampunk isn't your first choice of project to make right now. So we decided to do a cheer- and joyful "Christmas Wishing Month" instead.

There need no projects to be entered to win this month's prize - as we plan to save all our precious crafting time on preparing X-mas goodness with loads of bling, on shabby vintage delight, on baking cookies, Stollen, Plum Puddings, lebkuchen (= ginger bread) or wrapping up selfmade presents for our loved ones!

Just leave us a comment on this post in which you wish all of us (i.e. the players, the team and yourself) whatever you would like us to get for Christmas and the new year. 

Just one comment per person (otherwise we will have to exclude you from the draw), please! You will have time until the end of December to do your X-mas and/or New Years Wishing with us. 

I hope you have all a wonderful christmas time
May the spirit of the season bring you happiness and joy!!

Warm Christmas Greetings to all
