Card for a friend

Because the father of a stamping friend passed away last week, I wanted to make a card for her. It's the first time I made a card for this occasion and I hope I don't have to use this stamp much in the future.

Creanijn Album Track X

http://creanijn.blogspot.com/ The last page from my album goes about food. The title says in Dutch: Enjoy your meal! It was the first time we booked only breakfast. We had to find a place to eat every evening. Luckily that was not so difficult: there was a great Italian, Indian and Thai. Only once we were disappointed in a British restaurant. The PP are Kaisercraft 'Pennyroyale Collection' and the font is Platin Schoolbook from Cricut. Nothing else on this page except little cards from some restaurants in Cascais. To see all the pages of my Portugal album, you can use this link .

Cute Card Thursday Challenge

http://cutecardthursday.blogspot.com/2011/03/challenge-157-sketch-by-deb.html It's been a while since I entered a challenge, but I thought this sketch was really great, so I had to give it a go. I turned it upside down as this fits better with the direction the girl is looking at. I coloured the image with copics, but I still have a lot to learn. I think shadows are so difficult

Creanijn Album Track IX


Next week will be the last day in my Creanijn Album, but this is actually the last page which I finished. I don't know why I had so much difficulties with this one. I just didn't know where to put the title and journaling. I finally chose to do the journaling on the pictures, so there was plenty space left for the (quite long) title. .
Patterned paper is the double sided Scenic Route 'Sentimental Small Daisies White', title is created with Cricut Plantin Schoolbook cartridge and for the journaling I chose Augie font.

Knotsgekke kaartendagen

Yesterday my mom and I went to Knotsgekke Kaartendagen (a craft show in the Netherlands).
I think this edition was less interesting in comparison with other years. There weren't really great actions and there are some things on my wish list that I didn't found. But no worries, I've spend my money on other great stuff as you can see :)

Creanijn Album Track VIII


This week a layout with lots of pictures, just how I like them :) There was still some space left for an entry ticket of the castle and some journaling with a brief summary of the highlights of that day. I absolutely love the striped patterned paper. It's again from Scenic Route: Coral Pink Jade Stripe (2 sides) The elegant title is cut with Cricut Jasmine cartridge.

Creanijn Album Track VII

It's Monday, so time for the next page of my Creanijn Album Track. If you've seen the other pages too, you may have discovered some themes in my album. Of course Vicky's sketches are the obvious one (http://creanijn.blogspot.com/). Another theme seem to be the use of double sided paper. Maybe it's more expensive, but I really find it so practical. This time I used Scenic Route - Cape Town (both sides from 'Argyle' page). The last theme are my Cricut titles. I used one of my favorite cartridges on this layout: Stone Script. I did the title in different colours tot illustrate the different places we visited.

Paris: Montmartre

This weekend I was doing the Sketch Support blog hop and I really felt like some scrapping myself. So afterwards I started working on this layout. I already planned using Creanijn sketch 52. I have lots of pictures printed in function of some sketches, but I hope to also use one of Allison's sketches soon.

My supplies:
PP: American Crafts Sixth Avenue Lincoln
Cricut Plantin Schoolbook cartridge
Spellbinders nestabilities (for the circles)
