12 Days of Christmas – Day 1

Welcome, Gallery Walls and Giveaway

Welcome welcome to our little ’12 Days of Christmas’ Blog Party :D Come on in and make yourselves all cozy and homy and let’s get started with some Christmas preparing, decorating, baking and so on!

Let’s kick this off with some simple ideas for blank, boring walls!

A few months ago I tackled two of my walls and made them into galleries, where I would display all kinds of different artwork, pretty paper, world maps and what-not… I found all the frames at our local Dollar Store and spray painted them white for a cohesive look.

Now with Christmas around the corner I wanted to change it up a little. I painted a bunch of different watercolor pieces, hung reindeer antlers and a branch for some contrast. But look for yourselves :)

Merry Christmas ♥

  22. Dear Rahel,
    hello.I am sure your new stamps are wonderful.Can’t wait to see them.What I would like to see are cameras and travelling stuff(like mentioned in another post) or tags and anything related to journaling.Hope you have a fantastic Christmas holiday(I know you have been waiting for it since September :) and hope I am the lucky winner.

  23. I would like to see snowflakes – snowflakes all around! ;) And some winter/christmas expressions for layouts and cards. :D
    Have a wonderful christmas time!

  24. I would love vintagy stamps, some stamps that are kind of woodsy and kind of modern (like antlers for instance….I’m seeing them on pinterest with all kinds of modern looks) and stamps I can use over and over in my Project Life book (sayings maybe like “same story, different day” “here we go again” “Life as we know it” etc.

  25. Hi Rachel, great holiday ornaments! I would love to see anything vintage for stamps. Thanks so much for a chance to win! Hugs, Nicole

  26. Love your decorations! Would love to see some creative shapes as repeated design stamps to make as backgrounds or borders, if that makes any sense (like Studio Calico’s honeycomb stamp). Or maybe some travel-themed stamps. And I agree with the other comments that your handwriting is amazing. So if you do decide to use your handwriting in stamps, I would prefer it as alphas and not pre-made quotes.

  27. Wow.. I’ve always love your stamps :) I would like to see more travel themed, especially with maps and….. Mmm… Background stamps… Maybe a unique woodgrain and textures… Fingers crossed :)

  28. Perhaps could be traditional things of your home country Switzerland. Shoes, trees, mountains, houses, words, etc.

  29. I love your work Rahel! To respond to your question about what stamp classification I would like to see… I would love to see inspirational thoughts. Something that can be used to uplift someone’s spirits when they are sad or troubled. This could go inside cards. Happy inspirational thoughts for scrapbooking layouts, and maybe funny or clever thoughts as well. Thanks Rahel for a chance to win one of your one of a kind stamp sets. xoxo

  30. Hi Rahel,
    I would absolutely love to see some doodles in the way of rainbows, bows, scrolls, rain drops, sun shining, cupcakes, flowers, leaves, balloons, 3D stars and ur famous clouds…another suggestion would be to do a words pack in your hand writing for eg. Grand, father, mother, and, a, to, daughter, brother, sister, my, step and cousin…that way u can then create your own quotes or titles, extremely versatile…always a fan and love your work Rahel wishing you a very Merry Christmas…Em xo
    p.s. Posting on you’d wall on Facebook too thanks for the opportunity ;)

  31. Your older collections stamps!!! The summer collection or create something similar to it.
    Maybe also you can do stamps with words which can be used on a Layouts or you can create words sentiments which are always being used for doing cards!!

    Thanks for the chance to win !! :D

  37. I don’t know where I’ve been, but I just discovered your blog (and have been enjoying my time exploring it). My stamp suggestions echo some of the others that have already been made: calendar type stamps with dates, days of the week, etc. similar to what is in Merry Christmas, World Traveler and Adventszeit; some more journaling stamps similar to what you have in World Traveler; and some geared toward Project Life (as Ruth Tacoma suggested). Would you ever consider offering some smaller sets? Thanks for this chance to win, Rahel.
