If I had to name but one taste of Summer – it would be Strawberry. I love the taste of fresh strawberries and their wonderful hues of red. There’s a big strawberry farm not too far from us and they grow a huge variety of strawberries, so we can usually get them all Summer long, sometimes until the end of September. Every year I try to remember when my favorite varieties will be ripe and on sale – and every year I keep forgetting to do it. This year I will make myself a “Strawberry Calendar” using this collection and hopefully take the guesswork out of the strawberry season for next year. 🙂

Wow, it’s been a long time since I released a full collection – I’ve been creating single products, some commercial use, but ever since our puppy moved in I just didn’t have the time and focus to create something big.
Ice cream is happiness condensed. — Jessie Lane Adams
Enjoy life – one special moment at a time…
Like that moment when the first spoon full of ice cream melts in your mouth. The sweet, cool and creamy treat filling your mouth with it’s velvety texture.
That moment when a tub of ice cream and a handful of spoons is the cherry on top of a perfect family tv night.
The moment when a tub of ice cream seems like your only friend.
That moment when a trip to your favorite ice cream shop is crowned with a delicious sundae.
The face the baby made when getting the first taste of ice cream.
The agony of having to choose a taste from the long menu.
The happy jolt when hearing the ringing of the ice cream truck.
The heartbreak when one of the children drops a scoop in the dirt.
The happiness of sharing ice cream with a loved one.
I’m sure you can think of many more ice cream moments. There are so many of them in everybody’s life that I’ll run out of space trying to list them all.
Fortunately, here’s a collection to help you remember your ice cream moments, scrap them and turn them into cherished memories!
There’s also a Minikit Add-On that you can pick up free in my store – until Friday, July 6th! Don’t miss it 😉
Welcome to the Studio’s Annual Christmas Carol Blog Hop. Every year the Studio Designers gather together to “sing Christmas Carols” to all of our members, customers, fans & friends. It’s a way for us all to say: “Merry Christmas and a big Thank You for being so supportive”.
Each participating Designer has chosen a special Christmas Carol just for you and designed a cute mini freebie around it. So put on your dancing shoes & singing voices and come caroling with us.
I’m so happy to be part of this fantastic Holiday Blog Train again, this year, after taking a sabbatical last year 😀 Creating a kit around a Christmas Carol has turned into a fun way to get into the Christmas Spirit, because usually I can’t get the tune of my chosen song out of my head for days, lol.
This year “my” song is “Santa Claus is coming to town”. I love how it’s always getting me into a happy, festive mood.
Here’s a peek at the result, 15 elements and 13 papers (7 patterned and 6 solids):
And here are the download links, make sure to get both parts, the elements and the papers! Downloads will be available until January 2nd.
The free downloads are no longer available, but you can find the minikit here in my store.
Yes, it is!!! Woohoo! Happy first day of Spring! Or was that yesterday, since 2016 is a leap year? Oh – who cares, it is definitely, officially Spring now here 😀
I love sitting on our terrace, snuggled up in a warm jacket or even with a blanket (because those first sunny days are usually still pretty chilly), enjoying the light and the sounds of nature’s re-awakening. Yesterday the birdsong was joined by a funny, crunching noise – when I curiously looked around to figure out what it was, I saw a cute little brown mouse, sitting underneath a rose bush, happily nibbling away on a peanut. I wonder where he got that, maybe from a birdfeeder? Too cute – too bad I don’t come with a build-in camera so I could show you a picture, lol.
(We’ve had this mouse – or some ancestors- living in our garden for years, he (or they, lol) luckily never come into our house, even so our terrace door is often open – maybe they’re scared of our guinea pigs? ;D
All the Springtime songs and smells did inspire me to create a happy Spring collection:
There are some add-ons to go with the kit and even a little bonus if you pick up the complete collection:
And here’s some beautiful inspiration – a big “Thank you” to Pam and the girls from CT Hotspot for creating these! 😀
Hey all – today I’m looking for a little bit of input and help from you all…. I’m having major photobook woes… We went on a dream-like, wonderful, awesome vacation last Fall – to Hawaii and California. Perfect Bliss.
And I still have all these thousands (literally, lol) beautiful pictures sitting on my hard drive and sooooo want to put them into a book to look at them when and where I want to. But … it’s still not done yet, and I have barely started on it, because of this terrible monster called “perfectionism” rearing it’s head everytime I work on it… and I’m torn about what to do:
Use the photobook software from one of the printing companies and just do a picture book? The ones I’ve looked at so far don’t even offer the option to add a drop shadow to your pictures, BUT I’d have a book to look at out beautiful photos pretty fast.
Or do my pages in PS with drop shadows but only a bare minimum of embellishments and a uniform background – not that fast, but prettier and I’d have the layered files in case I’ll ever decide to redo it?
Or accept that it’s going to take me ages and ages (even using Manda’s power scrapping method) and have a perfect book in the end (whenever that may be)?
What do you do? Is there another option that’s “perfect” (there’s that word again, lol) and I haven’t considered? I’d love to hear about your thoughts and methods…
Here’s a little something for you, a journal card created with my new collection “Giraffe Kisses”– click on image to download and enjoy!

Have a wonderful day and, please, don’t forget to let me know your thoughts about photobooks in the comments!! 😀
