Crate Paper | Cards And Handbag With Carousel

Die neue Kollektion von Maggie Holmes 'Carousel' ist in reger Benutzung auf meinem Scraptisch. Dabei sind u.a. einige Karten und eine selbstgenähte Handtasche zur Aufbewahrung der Karten entstanden. Diese möchte ich euch heute zeigen. Schön bunt und farbenfroh sind die Projekte geworden - passend zum Sommer. Ein kurzes Video dazu findet ihr am Endes des Posts und auf meinem Youtube-Kanal (klick). Ich wünsche euch einen schönen Tag. Liebe Grüße von eurer Sandra.

The new Maggie Holmes Collection 'Carousel' is hot right now on my scrapbook table. I like the bright and fresh designs. And I just love the chipboard stickers and the ephemera pack. You can't have enough ephemera, right?! I hope you like my new creations with the collection. I sewed a handbag to keep the cards in a 'stylish way'. I'm sharing a short video with the bag and the cards on my blog (see end of post) and on youtube (click). Have a wonderful day, your's Sandra.

Altenew | Scrapbook Collection Blog Hop + Giveaway

Welcome to my blog to join in the Reflection Scrapbook Collection Blog Hop from the Altenew Scrapbook Design Team and Friends. You might have come here from lovely Missy Whidden. And now it's my turn to inspire you to create something with this beautiful kit. The kit can be used for scrapbooking and other papercrafting projects too. My project for today's blog hop is an inspiration to store keepsakes and memories from your holidays and/or short trips.

Travel Memories In A Bag

When I'm on a journey, a lot of things find their way into my pockets. Nice things that I want to take back home. You know, just little things you collect while travelling including tickets, maps, napkins, stones, feathers, etc. But where do you keep these things once you get home? One idea is to store everything in a customized travel box. I shared photos of a cool handmade sample box on my blog back in June 2017 (click). And today I want to share another storage idea with you!!! A handmade paper bag that is filled with travel memories from one of our latest trips to Prague.

Mini Album, Accordion Mini Book And More

Let's look at what's inside the paper bag. The paper bag is the new home of ...

  • ... a handmade mini photo album that holds 25 photos (with the blue dots saying 'photos' on the cover)
  • ... an accordion fold mini book with a camera sticker cover (I created a similar little book back in 2014)
  • ... a sewn pocket to store receipts and tickets (titled 'collecting happy memories')
  • ... a paper wrapper to hold maps and flyers

Project Photos

Let's have a look at the project photos now. PS: You can find out more about our trip to Prague on my blog in this post (click). Thanks for looking :).
