To get to know us all a little better we have decided to make a blog hop and to answer a few fun questions. 
If you want to win this fabolous price, all you have to do is, leave a comment on every blog and like us on Facebook.

Michelle Logan: What is your scrapbook "kryptonite"?
(what style/colour/etc will people never see on your creations because you
cannot deal with it???)
People will never see some cheesy stuff with animals or fruits on my pages! I don´t like it and I could never deal with it!

Michelle: What do you listen to or watch while your scrap and WHY?
Mostly I hear Heidi - a children's story and my daughter loves it and could hear it all day long! When she hears Heidi, I have time to work a little bit! And if I work at night, I could hear nothing, because I have to be quiet!

Klere: Do you snack or drink while scrapping? What?
So when then only very rarely, simply because there is no room on my desk! Haha! If I drink something then I prefer Instand coffee from the supermarket or Red Bull!

Adrienne: How do you jump start your creativity when you find that it is
Oh, there are two ways! First, I clean up my mess! Than I get mostly the desire to play again with all the beautiful things or find things that I did not know I have, or have forgotten, that I have! J
Or I take a look in my favorite Scrapbooking magazine from Stampington.

Scarlett: What is your favorite technique(s) to use right now and
why? What are some tried and true techniques you love to use?
Hm, let´s think about it. I think my favorite technique is to use my stencils! That´s really important, yes! And I love to play with color-splashes! Because with this two techniques your LO is never to be going boring or bad! Guaranteed!
I always like to play with Tissue paper! If I have no idea what to do, I take my Tissue paper and old book pages and then it moves. J

This is my creation for you to a little inspieration for you!

Amy: At what time of day are you most creative, or do you prefer
to create?
I love this question! Becuause it is so funny! Well, I´m a night owl! I don´t need the day! I can only life by night! My vital spirits awaken usually so about 22 clock. Then I have the desire to life, to be creative and just be happy. Or let me put it more clearly: At night I have immortal longings in me, to be creative!

Cindy: What makes your heart race?
Puh, there are so many things! My daughters, my husband, my friends, when I´m in my english class, if I can learn something new and of course: new stuff from ScrapFX and any crafting stuff!

Elisabeth: If you were to describe one emotion while
scrapbooking, what would it be?
One is very difficult. There are to emotions: vitality and blissfulness

Misty: What are you afraid of?
That something happens to my children, illness

Maria: If you could choose a talent/gift what would it be?
I wish I had the gift to believe in myself! Because if you believe in yourself, you succeed in everything.

Here are all the Hop-stations :

New stuff with Scrap FX

Yesterday I´ve got a new post on the ScrapFX Blog! I will share it with you too!

Gestern durfte ich wieder mal einen neuen Eintrag bei Scrap FX machen. Den will ich euch natürlich nicht vorenthalten!

 First a very simple card for  Mothers Day, (for my mother in law).
 I used white cardstock and some lace to start with as a background. I then painted the Scribble Heart in turquoise and put a splash of bronze on it. The Love wordlets I painted in white and crackled it with Crackle accents. I sewed all the elements on the card and it was ready to go.
Als erstes eine ganz einfache Muttertagskarte, für meine Schwiegermama. Mit viel zarter Spitze und Liebe gemacht.

This Layout was inspired by my wonderful hubby Sascha
 He’s a great artist and I love the inspiration we share!
It’s my first Layout without a photo! And I love it! I amm really bad at drawing! Here I have given my best.
The background is made with Tissue paper from Tim Holtz ( I LOVE it :-) , Gesso, some stamps, black, gold and bronze ink – and of course – stencils. After I drew the face, I altered my chipboards. I put on all chipboards ( Graphic Circles, Graphic Corner, Roman Numerals) a copper priming. Some I have brushed with patina, with shimmering watercolors H2O´s in turquoise and brown. After drying I glued all the pieces on my page.
Bei diesem LO, wie soll es anders sein, hat mich mein Mann Sascha inspiriert! Es ist mein erstes LO ohen Foto! Ich bin ja nicht wirklich gut im Zeichnen und schon gar nicht Portrait! Aber ich wollte es unbedingt versuchen! Denn als ich die genialen Graphic Chipboards von Scrap FX bekam, dachte ich sofort daran, damit die genialen Gedankengänge von meinem Liebsten festhalten oder darstellen zu können! Ich mag es anders zu denken, andere Blickwinkel oder Sichtweisen zu bekommen! Und wenn ich mich mit ihm unteralten, passiert genau das! Er bringt mich auf Ideen, inspiriert mich anders zu denken, immer wieder neue Sichtweise zu entdecken! Er erregt mich geistig! :-) Ich versuche mir immer vorzustellen, wie es wohl in seinem Kopf aussieht, wie er denkt, was er denkt. Und das wollte ich mit diesem Bild ausdrücken. :-) Keine Frage! 
Für mich ist er eine Genie!

Skissedilla Sketch 209

Time is running and I can´t believe that we finally have May! 
All new bring May, we say and so we have a new Selected Srapper on Skissedilla!
I am very pleased that I was able to propose a designer this month. 
I did not have to think twice!
I'm a big fan of her! She has an incomparable style!

Viktoria is 29 years old and discovered the scrapping in a very difficult period of her life in January 2010. Scrapbooking not only gave her back meaning in life and joy.
It gave her the strength to survive.
At first it was just a hobby then it became professional. Victoria is not only known in many design teams as Ingvild Bolmes DT for exemple, she teaches many workshops in Belarus, Ukraine and Russia, she also designed paper.
Together with her husband Vova, they designed beautiful diaries. Vova has developed its own technology to bind books and shares his knowledge in workshops.
Victoria is known on the Internet under the name Vika fleer.

This week we have an Sketch from Sascha Schmidt

That´s Vikas take:

And that´s what I do!

Please come and play with us on Skissedilla! This week you can win this price:

And at the end of the month you can win Viktorias last Collection "Anatomy"!

File Folder Art

I love communitiy projects!
So I was immediately hooked as Stepahnie Schütze invited me to do something together!
I love her style, like she plays with colors and her amazing backgrounds!

We both love Heidi Swapp and I´ve been fascinated for a long time, from her File Folders!
I wanted to realize this idea for a long time and also Stephanie like it!

Ich liebe Gemeinschaftsprojekte! Und so war ich sofort Feuer und Flamme als mich Stephanie Schütze einlud, gemeinsam mit ihr etwas zu  machen!
Ich mag ihren Stil, ihr Farbenspiel und ihre fantastischen Backgrounds!

Wir lieben beide Heidi Swapp und ich bin total begeistert von ihren File Foldern! Ich wollte diese Idee schon lange mal umsetzten und auch Stephanie gefiel sie.

Schaut also auch gleich mal zu Stephanie rüber und lasst euch inspirieren!
Hier eine kleine Vorschau:

I have made my File Folder for my best Girlfriend. She is my heart and means the world to me! She knowes everything of me nevertheless she love´s me!
And even if the longing is sometimes hard to bear, so I know she is always with me.
I have wrote a longe poem for her and about our friendship.
Is is very personelly, so I will show you just a part of it.

Ich habe meinen File Folder für meine Beste Freundin gemacht. Sie ist mein Herz und bedeutet mir die Welt! Sie weis alles über mich und liebt mich trotzdem! Ich habe ein sehr langes Gedicht für sie geschrieben, in dem ich versuche mit Worten zu beschreiben, wie wichtig mir ihre Freundschaft ist und wie unwichtig dabei die Entfernung ist. 
Und auch wenn die Sehnsucht manchmal kaum zu ertragen ist, so weis ich, das sie immer bei mir ist.

Die freien Flächen habe ich im Nachhinein mit meinem Gedicht für sie gefüllt.
Es ist sehr persönlich und so möchte ich nur ein paar Auszüge davon schreiben.

Du kennst mein Herz
kennst sowohl Donner
als auch den Regenbogen darin

Wir sind uns immer nahe
ganz gleich wie groß die Entfernung auch ist
die zwischen uns liegt

Und vermag ich die Laute deiner Gedanken
auch nicht zu hören
so sind sie steht´s Teil meines Denkens

Dein Wort ist mein Anker
wenn ich drohe mich im
Treibsand meiner Gedanken zu verlieren

Du siehst mich so wie ich bin
Du wünscht mich so wie ich bin

Du bist mein Quell
meine Muse
mein Herz

Du kennst mein Licht
und schenkst meinem Schatten Güte

Ich hab dich lieb
von Mittelpunkt der Erde
bis zum Arsch der Welt

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope I could inspire you!
Vielen Dank fürs vorbei schauen! Ich hoffe ich konnte euch inspirieren!
