I was thinking about fall birthday party themes that can be used for boys and girls birthdays and this week I decided to work on a barnyard party.

I love how it turned out!

These barnyard farm party printables are perfect for a fall party!

I could not help myself and started pinning inspiration images for the barnyard farm party! These are my favorites:

And just because I am so in love with these party printables I also did a journaling cards set for all of us who are not celebrating fall birthdays ;) Did I tell you that this set of journaling cards is ready to download at the Baers Garten Facebook Page? And that is for free? Be sure to not miss it! You only need to like the Baers Garten Designs Facebook page and them the set will be available for download (and all the future freebies that I’ll add there too!)

This set also includes a ready to print PDF. The journaling cards printables from my ETSY store always includes both the cards are separated JPG files and a ready to print PDF.

There is lots of scrapbooking inspiration out there but I really, really love a good sketch based on a great layout.

Enter the Sunday sketch at Studio Calico. This week’s sketch is a really great one and I made a bit time to scrap with it, so happy that I did.




I changed the sketch a bit including a pocket behind the photos. The pocket is a 6×6″ paper from the South of Market Paper Pad.





It fits the “diving navigation book” from Sea Life perfectly.




The turtles Schild & Kroti and the penguin Flapsy also had a great time that day ;)

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend!

Workspace Wednesday


Working with the October Kits by Dani They are seriously amazing. Specially love the touch of glittery gold and that paper with typed sayings (you see it in the punched butterfly).

Starting today I will be sharing a corner of my studio or a peek of what I am working every Wednesday. Thanks for stopping by today!

I am so happy to be the featured designer at The Daily today! I was featured twice before in June 2009 and in May 2011. So happy that Steph asked me to join again! Thank you so much!

Be sure to head to the daily digi to read my interview and to know how you can get this cute kit I designed for the digi files and other 6 goodies from other designers. It is a really sweet deal!


Little Mouse Treasures


It has been a long time since I designed a digital scrapbooking kit. Since I am not digi scrapping anymore I have been mainly designing printable journaling cards and birthday party printables which can be found on my Etsy stores. I still have my digital store at Baers Garten Designs and have been filling it with all the kits and collections I designed.

My little sweet store broke when I moved to a better and quickier server and I have to rebuild the store from scratch. It means writing all the products descriptions again, uploading all the images and files, and getting the zen cart personalized the way I like it. It is a work that takes months for me, as my life and work can’t stop so I have enough time to work in the store. So, please, if you are searching for a specific kit be sure to ask because I can add it to the store for you or point it on Etsy if it is already there.

I scrapped a layout I really love with the “Little Mouse Treasures” kit.




Little Happy Mouse


Designing this kit was so much fun as well as sharing a bit of my scrapbooking story and design process at the daily digi. It also has helped me with the decision to improve the blog and design more freebies for my facebook fan page. So, be sure to become a Baers Garten Designs fan and download the current freebie because something new is coming very soon!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

We finally started back working on the makes of my new studio so today I will be showing you two layouts. It is quite hard to keep blogging everyday. Time is short. Motivation to take pictures of the layouts, upload to Flickr and bloggen is almost zero ;)

The first is called “Beach Fun” and has a classic grid arrangement with 4 photos from Summer 2013.

I finally put my Crate Paper “The Pier” papers for a good use ;) The bold patterned paper that I used for my background was my color guide for the choice of embellishments and bits of paper. My favorite classic thickers make their appearance too.


The next layout is called “Vacation” is a, for me, classic two-photos layout.



Badge from the “need it” set available on my Etsy and Dawanda Stores. Vacation sign is from the Crate Paper Open Road Ephemera Pack.






Not sure if I’ll be adding something to the botton of this page in the future, I feel like something is still missing but I called it good (for now).

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
