St. Stephens

St. Stephens Cathedral

St Stephens Cathedral in Passau, Germany was originally built in 1225 then destroyed by fire in 1662 and rebuilt in 1688. It is a barroque building which houses the largest organ outside the United States. It has 17,774 pipes and 223 registers. The photo on the upper right on the date page shows the organ. I could have stayed here taking photos forever. Such a beautiful church. Paper used is Basic Grey Ambrosia and Bazzill. Cartridges used are Blackletter and Indie Art. Embellishment is Ambrosia Chipboard.

The pictures don't do the view justice but turned out beautiful. I had a hard time deciding on the right paper to make the pictures pop. I ended up with Basic Grey Wassail again. Letters were cut 4 times from Bazzil with Storybook and adhered together to form a chipboard. Large flower is Bazzill and the smaller poinsettias are Prima. Now to convince DH to take me back here in the spring or summer.

Nuremburg Hauptplatz

The next few days I am planning on continuing to post the rest of the Christmas Market Album. This one uses Bo Bunny Paper and the snowflakes were cut from AE and JOTS. The larger snowflakes were adhered with pop dots. Letters are from Storybook.

Christmas Markets along the Danube

It's been almost a month since I have posted anything. I was first busy getting ready for a swarm (crop) here in Columbus and then went to Florida to visit my family and lately a health crisis that I think is under control. Anyway I completed an entire album at the swarm of my Christmas Market trip to Germany. It's was fun reliving the trip but very sad to let it go. This layout was from our starting point in Nuremburg Germany. The paper is from Little Yellow Bicycle and the flowers are Prima. The cricut font used was Storybook, shadowed and Accent frame used.
