Wake up! It’s your day!!

Hey there 🙂

Just checkin’ in to show you my latest creation – again a masculine birthday card (I know!!) and again making a dent in the huge amount of border strips and scraps I have lying around:

I’m making good use of my beloved Savvy Stamps “It’s your day” wood-mounted stamp, and this time it came in super handy since I picked an alarm clock ephemera piece which I believe is from one of Shimelle’s first collections.

I took a pencil to wrap a bit of thin wire around it, just 3 coils, and then used two foam adhesive squares to attach the wire to the clock and to the card. So you can give the clock a tiny bit of a push with your finger and it wobbles! How fun is that?!! 😀

The ink is Versafine Onyx Black, just stamped off a few times to really get the “alarm clock going off”-feel across.

The “Jippie!” stamp is from catsonappletrees and the border strips are a wild mix from my stash – Crate Paper, My Mind’s Eye, American Crafts etc.
Hope you like what you see – feel free to leave a comment if you did 🙂

Today I’ll be off to seeing “Ocean’s 8” in the cinema – honestly, I’d say the weather rather calls for swimming in a lake, but I’ve promised my friends to go to the movies with them, so… ah well.

Have a great Sunday, y’all!

Mom – don’t read this!

Yeah people, it’s not what YOU think, I have to disappoint you (SPOILER ALERT! NO EXPLICIT CONTENT AHEAD!)

Hallo Mama, wenn du das hier zufällig lesen solltest, bitte nicht nach unten scrollen, sonst siehst du einen kleinen Teil deines Geburtstagsgeschenks – das willst du doch nicht, oder?! Immer dran denken: nur noch drei Wochen! Und außerdem soll es doch eine Überraschung werden!!

It’s just that I made a layout for Emilie Ahern’s weekly Project Project Challenge and since it is for mom’s album I don’t want her to see it beforehand. The challenge is based on episodes of Project Runway (Tim Gunn is also on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson). This week it’s all about projects that are water-, ocean- and beach-themed. So my LO is about the exhibits (Kelp Forest and Predator Exhibit) in the TWO OCEANS AQUARIUM in Cape Town. On the lower picture you can see a diver, they were feeding the rays and turtles that day, really interesting.


The layout was scraplifted from a layout by Shimelle – super talented, I tell ya.

Okay, so without further ado, here it is 🙂

LO two oceans aquarium

I used some textured Bazill Basics Cardstock, Basic Grey Offbeat paper & Farmers Market stamps (with Versamark) and Basic Grey Bling. I hope you like it [don’t judge me too harshly, I’ve been hardly scrapping for more than two weeks now] and of course feel free to leave a comment 🙂
