Erstkommunion “Lena”

Erstkommunion

Vor einiger Zeit erhielt ich eine super nette Instagramnachricht von einer zuckersüßen Tortenbäckerin (Genuss-Momente) mit der Bitte die Erstkommunionseinladungen ihrer Tochter Lena zu gestalten.
Natürlich hab ich mich sehr über diese nette Anfrage gefreut, ebenso wie glücklich, war ich aber auch etwas ängstlich!
Der Grund dafür: ich bin nicht katholisch, folglich kenn mich mit der Erstkommunion so gar nicht aus 🙈!Zu meinem Glück besuchte mich die kleine Familie aber einige Zeit später (mit leckeren Kuchenvariationen im Gepäck) und wir machten uns gemeinsam ans Werk.
Lenas Vorgaben waren ganz konkret: Pink, Lila, Kreuz, Blumen & Schmetterlinge — genial, oder? Ich liebe ja Kunden die wissen was sie wollen!

Verwendet hab ich hierfür einige, nicht mehr erhältliche Handstanzen von Stampin’ Up!, aber auch ein brandneues Set, nämlich “Hoffe und Glaube”. Die filigrane Kreuzstanze für die Big Shot find ich einfach wunderschön, genau so wie die Blumenranke – total vielseitig und echt cool! Falls du dich wunderst, den Text für die Einladung und die Menükarten hab ich gedruckt, nicht gestempelt, Frau hat ja leider nicht alles daheim 🙁
Farblich hab ich so ziemlich alles verwendet was Stampin’ Up! zu bieten hat, beispielsweise Wassermelone, Himbeerrot, Sommerbeere (jaja, fruchtig, oder) 😀 Unten liste ich dir aber noch mal alle verwendeten Materialien auf.
Dafür, dass die Vorgaben der jungen Dame recht streng waren, hab ich sie meiner Meinung nach sehr gut umgesetzt, oder was meinst du?

PS: Nächste Woche zeig ich dir noch die geniale Torte, super passend zur Papeterie <3

Stars & Stripes – Baby Clara

We have a new challenge prepared for you over at CUYL – for the next two weeks we’d like to see your Stars and Stripes creations 🙂
You’ve time until January 20th to link your projects 🙂
My dear friend Ann gave birth to a cute little girl a couple of days ago, so I just had to create something cute for this new, tiny human. I’ve never crafted with a Ribba frame before but I thought I’ll give it a try 🙂 
And here it is – I used crumb cake and rose red and love it 🙂 I also bought a custom made blanky from Kleine Fee Emilia and hope the new baby will love it 🙂

Spring Wreath

A couple of weeks ago I ordered the Wonderous Wreath bundle because I’ve seen it on so many Christmas cards and just had to have it 🙂 I really wanted to use it NOW but because I’m not in a Christmas mood right now I used it as a sping wreath 🙂 I like how the card turned out even though there is not much on it 🙂
