Little gift

I bought this great template to make a little gift box. This is my first attempt. It's perfect when you want to give a money present to someone.

I received some yummy candy!

I haven't created anything for a while now, simply 'cause I have no time!

During this period I did receive a nice package of blog candy from Marika ( http://2002sunflower.blogspot.com/) Look how great this Christmas candy is!

Eindelijk gescrapt!

Op het einde van mijn lang weekend toch nog een layout afgewerkt voor m'n Corfu album.

http://basicgreychallenges.blogspot.com/2008/11/challenge-12-embossing.html:


"this week we would like to see some embossing on your creations, it can be heat embossing, dry embossing or even a combo of both :) its entirely up to you :), and of course not forgetting to use at least 1 item from BasicGrey on your creation"

I used Basic Grey papers from the Figgy Pudding collection and a Cuttlebug embossing folder.

2 sketches 4 you: Laura's sketch 13

http://www.2sketches4you.blogspot.com/

The sketch was actually square, but because here in Belgium you have to pay double to send a square card I changed it a bit.


Penny Black Challenge

FUNKY CHRISTMAS
"This week we'd like to see your Christmas creations ~ with a twist ~
Let's try to stay away from your traditional colours and create something different."


Kerstkaart uit Cards Only!

Vorige week kocht ik de laatste editie van het tijdschrift Cards Only. Ik vond het nog beter dan anders met superveel mooie kerstkaarten. Deze heb ik dan ook bijna volledig gelift van Alma (p.78)


Blog candy gewonnen!

Gisteren vond ik een super interessant pakje uit Amerika in de brievenbus. Het was een pak Scenic Route 'Garland' papier dat ik gewonnen had op Layle's blog (http://laylekoncar.typepad.com/6degrees/) . Deze kerstlijn zal zeker van pas komen bij m'n kerstkaarten. Thanks Layle!

Scrapbook shoppen in Nederland

Vandaag ben ik gaan scrapbookshoppen in Nederland. We begonnen met Tessa Tegendraads (http://www.tessategendraads.nl/). Het was m'n eerste keer in deze leuke winkel en meteen ook m'n laatste keer want Tessa stopt er mee en houdt leegverkoop. Alle artikelen worden met minstens 30% korting verkocht. Er was al veel weg (bijna geen cardstock meer en ook voor distress inkt was ik te laat), maar toch nog toffe koopjes gedaan!



Op de terugweg zijn we nog gestopt bij Hobbidee (http://www.hobbidee-breda.nl/) in Breda. Ook m'n eerste bezoekje daar en ik ben heel blij deze winkel te hebben ontdekt! Zoveel leuke dingen (wat een papier- en stempelcollectie!) , ik kon m'n ogen bijna niet geloven. Dit maakte de keuze natuurlijk niet gemakkelijk, maar aangezien ik gisteren een auto heb gekocht, moest ik toch wat op m'n budget letten. Hieronder zie je m'n aankopen (2 plastic mapjes om papier in te bewaren staan niet op de foto)

Eindelijk nog eens een layout!

Eindelijk ben ik er nog eens in geslaagd een layout voor m'n vakantiealbum van Corfu af te werken. Ik heb het redelijk simpel gehouden met enkel een swirl op beide pagina's. Ik denk dat het nu nog wel een paar maanden zal duren voor ik me nog eens aan zo'n handgeknipte swirl zal wagen, hoor!


Verjaardagskaart

Mijn oudste zus verjaart morgen, dus heb ik een kaartje voor haar gemaakt. Op dit moment heb ik eerder een scrapbookperiode, alhoewel zich dat (jammergenoeg) niet echt uit in een heleboel afgewerkte layouts. Ik ben er met verschillende bezig en hoop er tegen het weekend toch eentje te kunnen tonen. Maar eerst dus dit verjaardagkaartje. Ik had niet zo veel inspiratie dus is het simpel gebleven.

Verjaardagskaart

Gisteren verjaarde mijn jongste zus, en ik heb voor het eerst een gestempelde kaart voor haar gemaakt. Ik heb het idee gescraplift, maar ik weet niet meer waar ik het origineel gezien hebt. Dus als iemand het weet, wil je me de link dan doorgeven zodat ik hem er bij kan zetten.

Stempel2daagse

Op 18 en 19 oktober organiseerde Linda (http://lindadegucht.blogspot.com/) een stempel2daagse. Ik heb op die 2 dagen super veel geleerd, maar eerlijk gezegd niet zoveel afgewerkt. Hieronder zie je 2 kaarten en later zal ik ook nog mijn kalender tonen, maar daar moeten nog de finishing touches aan gebeuren.

De eerste kaart is een distresste kerstkaart gemaakt in een workshop van Bruno (http://www.in2hobby.be/). Het tweede voorbeeld is mijn eerste poging tot grungy-stijl met ecoline. Deze workshop werd gegeven door Ilse (http://www.bloggen.be/ilse/) Ik kijk al uit naar de tweede editie op 21 en 22 maart 2009.

bloemschikles

Sinds een jaar of 2-3 volg ik af en toe eens een bloemschikles. Afgelopen maandag was het weer zo ver. We maakten deze keer een grafstuk.
Mijn eerste lessen gingen nogal moeizaam, ik zat dan ook in een klas met doorwinterde bloemschikkers met 10-tallen jaren ervaring. Ik kende al die technieken nog niet en werkte heel traag zodat ik meestal nog maar halfweg zat als de anderen al vertrokken. Over mijn resultaat was ik ook nooit 100% tevreden. Maar deze avond was het voor de eerste keer anders. Ik was goed op tijd klaar en mijn bloemstuk mag er best zijn (al zeg ik het zelf).

Friday Sketcher Week 23


It was such a great sketch this week. I love the half circles on both sides! I didn't put the ribbon on my card because I tought it was already busy enough for me.

New Challenge Blog


Karin has put up a new great challenge blog. Every Monday she'll post a sketch you can use for a christmas- and/or birthdaycard. At the end of each month one winner will receive a small prize.

This is my card for the first sketch. I used Basic Grey paper (Figgy), Magnolia and Penny Black (sentiment) stamps.

WCMD: Shape Challenge

http://stamp-room-r.blogspot.com/2008/10/wcmd-2008-my-challenge-shape-challenge.html
"Please make anything shape but a square card!"

A quick one 'cause this great weekend is running to an end here in Belgium.
I used Magnolia stamp and my nesabilities to cut the (scalloped) circle.

WCMD: Christmas is on it's way Challenge

http://lisadorsey.blogspot.com/2008/10/happy-world-card-making-day.html

This challenge is to create a Christmas card. Perfect 'cause I'm really into Christmas cards lately.
For this one I used Penny Black stamp, American Crafts Elements ribbon and just cardstock.

WCMD: Watcha doin' cupcake?


This challenge sounds: 'create a card using a cupcake of some description'.
So it was the perfect occasion to use this stamp for the first time, although I already have it several months.

For this card I used: Imaginisce stamp, Basic Grey patterned paper and American Crafts Elements ribbon.

WCMD Challenge Card & Tag

http://www.stampingmathilda.blogspot.com/


I started cardmaking exactly one year ago on World Card Making Day. To celebrate this I kept today free and wanted to create a lot. It's not really going as planned because I seem to have lost my inspiration. I finally finished my first challenge: create a card and matching gift tag. I used stamps from Hero Arts.


SOF :: Cuttlebug Challenge

http://www.twopeasinabucket.com/userblogpost.asp?id=39681


A fun challenge to use your Cuttlebug in some way along with stamping. I've also used one of Katharina's great sketches for this one (http://katharina1704.blogspot.com/2008/04/tilda-with-roses.html)

Gina K Designs' s release party


Yesterday I've made a card for Gina K Designs's release party challenge # 1 on Splitcoaststampers. Unfortunately I don't have any Gina K stamps, so I had to use another one.

Kos

This afternoon I'm leaving for a 10 days vacation on the Greek island Kos. Finally it's my turn to take a break after a long working summer. I'll be back on 1st October (hopefully sun tanned and with lots of beautiful pictures).

Baby girl card

This is the card if it's a baby girl. Same paper line and stamp, but different sketch.
I know the yellow is to bright, but I'm saving for a big box of Derwent pencils. In the mean time I have to manage with my limited collection.

Baby kaart

My best friend is 37 weeks pregnant, so it's about time to make a card. I don't know if it'll be a boy or a girl, so I'll make one for both. My guess is that it'll be a boy, so I started with this one. I scraplifted a card from Inge (http://magnoliacreations.blogspot.com/2008/04/sweet-baby.html) and used beautiful SEI papers and a Magnolia stamp obviously.

breakfast-diner layout

Eindelijk nog eens gescrapt! Met dank aan Daphn├ę (http://dafkapin.blogspot.com/) want door al haar reislayouts te zien, kreeg ik er zelf ook weer zin in. Aangezien ik binnen 3 weken naar Kos vertrek, werd het dringend tijd om aan de vorige vakantie te beginnen scrappen. Dit is dus de eerste layout voor m'n Corfu-album. (Eigenlijk was ik aan een andere begonnen, maar ik had niet de juiste kleur cardstock om die af te werken, die volgt later dus nog wel.)

Tag You're It: Christmas in August


The first tag I've ever made, so I'm not really satisfied with the result. But I can learn out of it and I've used my Hero Arts stamps, that 've been laying in my drawers for about a year, for the first time! I'm sure I'll use them more often now.
