Blog Hop “Autumn Magic”

It’s that time again ….The design team of the Scrapbook-Werkstatt and the SBW rockers have teamed up again, here it is the Autumn Blog-Hop under the theme “Autumn Magic” for many wonderful ideas, guidance and inspiration.
9716435043_7c7839a476_z Autumn is here …. it has arrived and surrounded the world with one very beautiful light and many enchanting colors. And light is also what will be the topic of my creation!!!

But first, of course there is something to win: Among all participants, up to 13 October 2013, the Scrapbook-Werkstatt gives away a shopping voucher worth fantastic € 20.

But just before I do so…here are the rules:

  1. Hop from blog to blog and leave a comment at the post of the participating design team members or forum rocker THEN…
  2. Show us your own creation to the topic “Autumn Magic” on your own blog AND …
  3. Leave a comment on the SBW blog with a link to your work.

(Even without a blog you can join in! Send your work to Tina & Mireia: AND leave a comment on the SBW blog.)

But let’s get to the fun part: Here my contribution…GLOW JARS – EASY and CHEAP sphere-lighting for your cozy autumn get-together or a romatic evening!

The idea I got during my Pinterest-strolls (Source). I did not use in fact much paper but your imagination is the limit and the jars can further be decorated with lint, paper or washitape… DSC03651 DSC03655 Best you use paint that glows in the dark because it works longer, however then the jars look less nice at daylight. If you use, like me, glow stick, cut them open en sprinkle the inside into the jar, it only will last for a short while (1-2 hours). Or put a candle in the jar and decorate the inside with (real) leaves or see-through paper, but be sure you glue it wel to the inside of the glass so that the candle cannot catch fire 😉 DSC03660 DSC03656 DSC03658 DSC03659

Wel, now it’s time to hop on to SIMONE (you came from Jen)

It has been quiet…

…because I was on my long awaited vacation, and it was great…sun, water and good food…now I have again a lot of pictures to use for my creations…

But first things first. Some news: In the German Forum there will be a fun Scrap-Dictation soon again…so for those who are into live-scrapping come along and join us at the SBW-Forum!!!



Oh and some other news as well…our Forum-Rocker-Team has grown and now we are supported by three more creative and inspiring girls: Lea, Nadine and Simone.



It’s time! You can register now for our Midsummer Battle! We certainly look forward to an exciting battle. There will be two teams – Team Mireia vs. Team Tina!


To recap, briefly summarized the most important rules:
* Participation – who is in which team will be decided upon registration randomly
* If during the registration period – until 20.00 p.m. Saturday evening 22.06.2013 – not enough participants can be found, the teams will have to fill the required number of participants by already registered members of their own team.
* The fight starts on Saturday, 22.06.2013, 20.0 p.m., the two layouts, which will be lifted, are respectively sent to the Start-scrapper of each team at 19.58 p.m.
* Everybody will scrap “right”, meaning to do more than only glue a photo onto a piece of paper. If not done properly one can be disqualified and the team has to do the lift (turn) over!

Sounds fun? come on over and join us at SBW-forum!

Easter (and spring!) is around the corner. This asks for action from the Forum-Rockers of the ScrapbookWerkstatt. On 03/17/2013 at 10:00 we will host the pre-Easter promotion “Vor-Gefärbt” all day long! It will be a blast with so much fun and inspiration!
Armed with paper, paint and lots of eggs we bring you in the mood for Easter. Because we have everything ready – Minis, Layouts and of course Easter decoration – you will get inspired until you drop.
Curious? Then join in!


2 LO’s: “Our Story” & “1-2-3-Click”

The first layout is made during the Scrap-Battle in the SBW-Forum. I was first to start lifting…and I managed to finish in less than an hour…It was so much fun and exciting, however, unfortunaly we were about 5 minutes to slow and the other team won…more pics here.


This layout was a try out of a technique I saw from Solange Marques on Prima-Blog. More details here.
