January sketch- Guest designer Birgit Krasenbrink

Lets start the new year with a new sketch and lots of inspiration from another guest designer. Her name is Birgit Krasenbrink from Germany and this is what she has to say:

A big hello to all scrappers out there! :-)
And thanks to Helen for the great sketch! It was so much fun to work with it!

My name is Birgit Krasenbrink and I live with my husband and my 3 sons in Germany near the Dutch border.

In early 2010 I started digital scrapbooking, to record the first year of our twins.

This made me curious about scrapbooking with paper. I found sooo many great layouts and inspiration on the worldwide web.

So I ordered my first paper kit and in June 2010 I made my very first paper layout. Now, I'm addicted! ;-)

And now I can find my layouts on this great website from Helen! WOW! This is a great honor! THANK YOU!

This is sketch # 40 that Birgit worked with:

Birgit's first take on the sketch is digital and I'm so excited, because it's the very first time I see a digi layout based on any of my sketches:) Isn't it awesome?


and here is her paper layout based on the same sketch:


Here's a few of Birgit's layouts based on some of my other sketches. 


I asked Birgit to pick some of her own favorite layouts and here are her choices.

First, 3 paper layouts:

and then her favorite digital layout:

Wow! What can you say?

Can you believe that Birgit started scrapbooking in 2010!!??
I wish I was this good when I first started...

If you want to see more of Birgit's fabulous work, be sure to visit her blog. Even though it's in German you can get inspired by her gallery.

Danke Schon Birgit for sharing your talent with us:)

Pin It!
