To many hobbies!

I'm sorry I didn't show a lot of cards or layouts lately, but I simply didn't have time to make anything. I really have to many hobbies: I started Zumba lessons (which is real fun and good for my health), I still work as a volunteer in a refugee center (I help the children from primary school with their homework), I follow courses about nature (I already learned about birds and mushrooms and next year it'll be about moss) and then I have some other creative hobbies: floristry and I recently tried making pearls with Fimo clay.

Tim Holtz: 12 Tags of Christmas

I'm not a real distresser, but I had nothing to do this afternoon and tought I'd give it a try. Off course I didn't have all the supplies, but I tried to find alternatives (fe. ecoline in stead of alcohol ink). I didn't make tags 'cause I don't know what to do with these, so I used the same techniques, but make cards, little gifttags, etc.

Day 1 : a card

Day 2: a card

Day 3: a card

Nicole's Cricut Cartridges Candy

http://stampinupnicole.blogspot.com/2009/11/cricut-cartridges-candy.html (05-12)

Op Nicole's blog is er momenteel een fantastische candy: je kan een Cricut Cartridge Home Decor winnen! Om mee te doen, moet je volger worden van haar geweldige blog (gemakkelijk want ik was dit al lang) en een foto van jou met je Cricut plaatsen. Na lang twijfelen heb ik dit voorjaar er eindelijk eentje gekocht, en ik heb nog geen seconde spijt gehad. Wat een supergave machine! Jammergenoeg zijn de cartridges nogal prijzig. Vooral omdat het prijsverschil met Amerika zo groot is, vind ik het zonde om 70-80 euro te betalen. Dus ben ik op zoek geweest op veilingsites en zo heb ik toch al 4 extra font-cartridges kunnen kopen.

Creanijn sketch 82

I've used the most recent sketch from Creanijn . I had lots of embellishments for this layout: the tickets, a coin and an information folder. Because this folder was quite big I tried to hide it behind the right border. I actually made it a little bit to small because I had only a little space left to glue it together.

My supplies:
- Plantin Schoolbook cartridge (title)
- Staedtler pigment liner 0.5 (journaling)
- cardstock
- Love Elsie patterned paper: Jack+Abby Linens

Nicole's candy!

http://stampinupnicole.blogspot.com/2009/10/100000-bezoekers-candy.html (15-11)

Ik heb eind juni/begin juli m'n kamer, die zowel dient als slaap- als knutselkamer, volledig heringericht met de bedoeling wat meer plaats te hebben om te scrappen en om m'n spulletjes wat beter bij de hand te hebben. En ik vind dat dit goed gelukt is!

Er moeten nog wel een aantal dingetjes gebeuren: volgende week worden mijn gordijnen geleverd en ik ben nog op zoek naar een mooie kader voor boven m'n bureau, maar dat is niet zo dringend.

Creanijn Sketch 80: Belleville

As I had a few days off work this week, I spend a lot of time in my crafting room.
I love using Vicky's sketches as scrapping goes so much faster and I'm sure the layout will look good (unless I choose the wrong papers of course).

My supplies:
- American Crafts patterned paper
- cardstock
- Jasmine Cricut cartridge
- Staedtler pigment liner 0.5 (journaling pen)

woensdag 28 oktober 2009


Two weeks ago I made this decoration with a pumpkin and flowers. I didn't have time to show it earlier, but now Halloween is getting closer I still find it a good time to show.
This will be my last flower decoration for a while, as my Zumba lessons are on the same day I and I can't go to both :(

Layout Crazy Summer

I'm probably not the fastest scrapbooker in the world, as I only finished my LO for Creanijn's Crazy Summer Contest last weekend :) . It's the first LO in my album about our vacation in Paris (may 2009). I have different rules for every album to keep all the LO's in the same style. This time I've choosen not to use a lot of patterned papers and to do all my journaling handwritten. This is also the reason why it kept me so long to finish this LO. I did the papers and pictures already in August, but to write the journaling directly on my LO scared me off. I've tried different pens and found a really nice and comfortable one last week. Although I used a different one on this LO

-Chatterbox Designer Paper 'Woods Floral',
-EK Success Retroflower punch,
-Cricut Cartridges Mini Monograms (circles) and Opposites Attract (title),
-Colorbox Chalk Deep Green
-Prima Marketing Corner Stamp One
- Stabilo Point 88

Some finished layouts

I had some layouts in my Madeira album that needed a finishing touch. So I created a title with my Cricut.

WCMD: Tracy's challenge


I finished this card just in time. Tracy challenged us to make a card with her two favorite embellishments: ribbon and buttons.

WCMD: Teresa's challenge

Suddenly I found the inspiration for Teresa's challenge: you need something pink and something dotty on your card. So I made this baby card with pink dotted paper and ribbon (maybe not good to see on the photo)
My supplies: Justjohanna stamp, Stampin'Up paper (candy from Jana ), patterned paper (candy from Aimee , aquarel pencils, ribbon (candy from Steph )

WCMD: Karrie's challenge


I must say I don't really feel in a creative mood on this WCMD. This is my first card today. I made this one for Karrie's challenge, which sounded 'Create a card with at least THREE circles on it'. Well, I have one big circle and three little ones, decorated with a flower. I coloured the stamped image with Distress ink. I'm only started this technique, so I still need some practicing.

My supplies: Justjohanna stamp, patterned paper (candy from Aimee ), Distress Ink Fired Brick, Scattered Straw, Antique Linen, Tea Dye

World Cardmaking Day!


Two years ago I made my first card on World Cardmaking Day! I never actually send it to anyone, as it was quite simple. But I've learned a lot since then and I'm looking forward 'till Saturday and I hope I'll have a productive weekend!

I'm back from vacation...

I came home last night from Croatia. I've had a wonderfull vacation. It's a gorgeous country, the people are very friendly, our hotel was perfect and the weather was great! The only negative thing was the strike on the Belgium airport when we had to come back and we had more than an hour delay, but that couldn't spoil our fantastic vacation!

It was a short night and I had a lots of mails to read, my suitcase to empty, go shopping, etc. So I haven't created anything yet, but I do have some candy links:
