Hello everyone. 

 I am happy to be a guest designer for Studio Forty, so exciting!

I am Mandy from Germany. And I would say my biggest passion is my love for papercraft projects & colours! All these things have accompanied me all my daily life. In August 2014, I started my discovery & adventure of the whole world of scrapbooking, project life, mixed-media, art journaling etc. – so all creative things with papers, punching & stamping. I love to try different materials & techniques, and I like it if the colours are bright and the items have a fresh look. My style is ever-evolving, but I would currently describe it primarily as clean, layered & full of colours. And I have a weakness for gold highlights.

Thank you, Studio Forty, for having me as your guest designer!

For my first project, two little gift boxes, I used pre-made packages out of my stash, decorated with patterned paper, chipboard frames and stickers.

For the cubic one, I used stitched star dies in four different sizes to cut several stars from the light green patterned paper to create some kind of tree for my decoration. To hold them in place, I used some gold wire and fixed it on the top of the box. The clear sticker fit just perfectly to have a small sentiment on the box.

A simple way to decorate a pre-made package is to use a banderole for the more giant box. Easy to make from 12 x 12-inch patterned paper. I stitched some clear pearls to have a small highlight using the little white snowflakes as my template.

Inside the box, I placed some kind of waterfall card to include a small envelope for a gift card and my Christmas greeting.

If you don’t do project life or memory keeping in a memory notebook, you can also use project life cards for your cardmaking. As my second project, I made three little Christmas cards as a card set from the beautiful project life cards and the patterned paper with the cards to be cut out.

I used some stamps that I embossed in gold or black, respective, and clear stickers combined with twine, wood veneers, bells and pearls from my stash for decoration.

As my last project, I prepared our December Winter album. It is not a traditional December Daily album; it is more some kind of memory keeping of the best December and Winter moments of this year, not following the days of the month. Some pages are already finished; others are only prepared. And the album has enough place to add more and more pages. I love to add additional pages through the December days.

On the pages, I tried to include some interactive elements like flaps or journaling spots that can be taken out of the album because they are fixed by mini magnets.

I hope you like my projects and will like the gorgeous Frosty Season collection. I had a lot of fun creating with it.

Enjoy it!
