Birgit Koopsen and Carabelle Studio Blog Hop & Giveaway


Hello and welcome to the Birgit Koopsen and Carabelle Studio Blog Hop and Giveaway! If you arrived from lovely Marsha, you are on the right track! 

As you may have heard Birgit recently released her first collection of 6 mixed media stamp sets with Carabelle Studio. I am so thrilled and beyond happy to be one of the designers she picked to try out her designs and be part of this blog hop! 

I created seven layouts using the following sets: "I heart Washi Tape", "Layered Strips" and "Frech Lily Background". You can see all the sets here at Carabelle Studio shop (link) and order them from there, too! 

Today I'm sharing with you one of the layouts I made together with a video. I shall be posting the six others through out the following moth. But here's a few sneaks of them already!

 

Would you love to have some of the new sets to play with? If you hop over to Birgit's blog you will find a giveaway! But I urge you to comment here too as you will have another entry into her giveaway! And even better - if you leave a comment on all participating blogs you will have as many chances to win one of her stamp sets! How cool is that?!

So leave a comment on each of the listed blogs and on this blog, too, and let us know how you like the stamps and the projects and what is your favorite stamp set! Birgit will then randomly pick six lucky winners! You have time to participate and comment until September 23, midnight CEST.

To make things easy for you, here is the list of the participating blogs. Make sure to check out all these amazing designers and their beautiful projects:

Riikka Kovasin (you are here!)


Ok then, here's my layout made with two of the sets shown earlier! I've used "Layered Strips" and "I heart Washi Tape" here. From the video underneath you can see how the page came into being! 

The topic of the page is twinkling Eiffel tower. Last spring Marsha and me visited Version Scrap event in Paris and on Saturday night we thought to go see the Eiffel tower. By a happy coincidence we took the metro too far in the first try, saw the modern triumphal arc first and headed to Eiffel. It was just a few minutes to midnight or was it eleven when we reached the park near the tower and while walking towards it, it started to sparkle and twinkle! Really magical!


I felt that "Layered Strips" had the same feeling as the twinkling tower. It has got the same architectural style than the tower. I used embossing glitters to have the same sparkling effect to the page. To give the page even more sparkle I also used a the starry part of "I heart Washi Tape" in the page and added a few punched ones, too. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Your next stop will be the talented Janna Werner - can't wait to see what she has created! Enjoy the rest of the Blog Hop and good luck with the raffle! Don't forget to comment in every step to better your odds! Have a lovely day!
