Special Guest Spotlight on Kerstin Filou

 This month, we are very pleased to introduce you to Kerstin Filou, our December Guest Designer and our final Guest for 2020!

We invite you to browse through her blog and Instagram links and enjoy her beautiful art that has amazed us since she first started entering our challenges.

Seasons greetings from Kerstin!

Hello, I'm Kerstin and I'm a handicraft enthusiast with passion since my childhood, crafting makes me happy!  It is a wonderful relaxation and balm for the soul, it's the little things in life that makes you happy and I love to share this joy and want to encourage my friends and all the others to try new ideas.

You can find Kerstin on Instagram and on her blog, just click the links below to give her some love.


Here is a reminder of our December Main Challenge.

Word Inspiration - CHILDHOOD
Creative Challenge - ADD GOOD

Here is Kerstin's festive interpretation of our challenge:

Kerstin:  Christmas of childhood reminds me of stressful, but also very funny and happy moments.  It is, and has always been, a beautiful tradition to give presents to the animals on Christmas Eve, in the past with a visit to the zoo and later also to your own pets. Under the Christmas tree we also liked to sing, our dog liked that very much too and he sang his own song. :-)

I was inspired to create a Christmas mood layout in vintage style and used some wonderful papers from the latest Maja Design collection 'Traditional Christmas' together with some chipboards from Dusty Attic.  
I added gold splatters to the layout, gold on chipboards and as star stamps in background. 

A big THANK YOU to Kerstin for joining us as our 
December Special Guest! 

We hope that Kerstin's beautiful project inspires you to join us
