Welcome to another challenge set by the Happy Scrappy Friends! Today we would like to see some fabric in your project and for me – being a papercrafter – this task actually had its challenges!

You should have come from Dana, otherwise you can start here. Your next stop is with Dori. If you would like to take part and share your creation, please post a comment at Happy Scrappy Friends with a link to your project.

In my fabric stash I found some strips I had left over from a quilt I once started (not finished yet, I know!). I stitched it together diagonally, cut it apart and layered it together again so it appears as a wonky strip. I sewed it behind a piece of cardstock and then developed the rest of the layout around it. It wasn’t easy to start with, having all those different patterned fabrics on one side! Then I was looking into my scrap basket to find some papers with softer patterns so the busy fabric strip would still stand out on this layout.Layers of Light - dapfniedesign - Happy Scrappy Friends April 2016 - close up 3

Where fabric is, there should be buttons as well, right? So don’t forget these on your project!Layers of Light - dapfniedesign - Happy Scrappy Friends April 2016 - close up 1

I really like my star border as well – it brings some of the blues from the photo on the layout (together with another piece of fabric I used as a layer like I would normally use paper!).

The Great Walk – Scrapbooking Layout with Papierprojekt’s Moment-Stempel Sets


The Great Walk - dapfniedesign for Papierprojekt's Moment-Stempel - title

I am late! Just a day, I know. But it doesn’t feel like Thursday, more like Wednesday (must be because of the Bank Holiday this week!). Anyway, I’ve got another layout for you I finished on Monday. I used a lot of “old” papers from My Mind’s Eye, dug out some paper punches and combined it all with the fabulous new stamp sets from Papierprojekt!

This time I used the numbers from the Kopernikus set for stamping the date (quite bold, but I really like it!), the little star border (love it!) from the Details set…

I went a bit mad with the wood veneer words on this layout – I found a pack of these in my local craft store for just £1! Bargain! No problem here to use a lot of them on just one page then!The Great Walk - dapfniedesign for Papierprojekt's Moment-Stempel - close up 3

These Moment-Stempel sets were used in my scrapbooking layout:

Little Bumblebee – Scrapbooking Layout with Papierprojekt’s Moment-Stempel “Brentano”


Little Bumblebee - dapfniedesign for Papierprojekt's Momentstempel Brentano - title

Hello lovely crafty Friends! Today I would like to share a new layout with you – and the first time I am using the new stamps from Papierprojekt. I used the Moment-Stempel set “Brentano” for the title – it fits so nicely with the journaling card! Also, isn’t this alphabet just absolutely gorgeous? I am in love!

I also used two designs from the set “Details”: The five tiny stars in a row – extremely versatile and fit on nearly every project! I stamped two rows, one above and one below the pink triangle patterned paper. And then the date stamp, which I used on the very bottom of my layout.Little Bumblebee - dapfniedesign for Papierprojekt's Momentstempel Brentano - close up 1I also found this bumblebee stamp in my collection, which I am not exactly sure where I got it from, because I could not remember with which collection it comes from – oops! But I used some embossing power with it to create some dimension.

As I had my sewing machine set up, I used it to emphasise the diagonal flow of my layout.

And the best news this week of course was the re-opening of the Papierprojekt-Shop – have a good look around, the stamps are gorgeous and you can order from (more or less) everywhere in the world!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Beach Perfect – Shimelle’s Weekly Challenge #6: Three Photos on Scrapbooking Layouts


Beach Perfect - dapfniedesign -Scrapbook with three photos - Shimelle's Weekly Challenge #6 - title

As I am still waiting for my stamps from PAPIERPROJEKT to arrive, I thought I might just start with Shimelle‘s next Monday Challenge and using the Like For Ever Kit from March!

Shimelle challenged us to dive into our stack of photos and use three of them on a scrapbooking layout. Easy, really! I love to use either three in a row or stacked like in this layout and then embellish around it. I’ve done it many times before and often use it as a go-to inspiration when I haven’t been creating for a while, because it always works!

Shimelle set a link to an older post of her own in the series “Sketch to Scrapbook Page” where she used three photos and embellished them with envelopes where I have my flags. I decided to go with the sketch! I even wasn’t aware of me using it back in 2013 already (“Windy Tyneham Cap”) with tags. But this time, instead of the tags, I made some flags from scraps from the March Kit.

I used some arrow stickers and die cuts to embellish, and these three cute words, which come from Shimelle’s Starshine Clear Stamps (yes, I finally got hold of them, but the set is rarely in stock!). They fit so nicely in there!

Also, I used some phrases, stickers, puffy stickers and stamped hearts to embellish the flags with their main little 4×4 card. I even found a fitting wood veneer flag to add!Beach Perfect - dapfniedesign -Scrapbook with three photos - Shimelle's Weekly Challenge #6 - close up 2

These challenges are always fun to do and I am looking forward to the next one! If I’m keeping with them, I will scrap at least one layout a week which is quite a good pace for me at the moment!

Thank you so much for stopping by! See you soon!

Shimelle’s Online Scrapbooking Weekend 2016


Happy Sunday everyone! Hope you had a good weekend so far. Last weekend was the big Online Scrapbooking Weekend over at Shimelle.com. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to do all of her ten challenges, but I managed three of them at least! So here there are:


Challenge No 5: Use an oversized photo on your layout

I have a lot of panoramas still waiting to be scrapped, so this was the perfect opportunity to use one of it. I found an old paper by Sassafras with a sun on it, which I really liked but never was able to use it. For this layout I finally cut it up and put it down – hooray!

Challenge No 7: Use circles on your scrapbooking layout

I used some paper from the Simple Stories “Homespun” collection and cut out a few doilies from one design. In addition to it I used some clear stamps from My Mind’s Eye which fit perfectly I thought! The little flowers were from another stamp set by My Mind’s Eye, all from Miss Caroline.

Challenge No 8: Use a Colour Scheme on your layout: cream / red / light blue / blue / yellow

Yay, it is Mr Evans again! For this layout I used a lot of my scraps out of my basket – great way to use them up finally! These photos were from the same location like the oversized photo in challenge 5, Ramsdown Plantation just outside Bournemouth.
