Winter Joy ~Webster`s Pages~

Hi there!
Today I`m sharing a layout I created for Webster`s Pages. This month is a month of SIMPLICITY. That`s why I really tried to keep it simple while creating this page....
I used two pattern papers from two collections - "A Botanical Christmas" and "All about Me"....
I stamped the clock using orange, brown and black ink with the unmounted stamps "Every Moment" from Webster`s Pages...
The cute little red bird is from Designer Threads - shapes II...
The flower was made by me .....you can find the tutorial -------> HERE

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog!
Have a sunny day :-)!

Enjoy Scapping ~Guest Designer~

Hi there!
I`m sharing today a layout I created for "Enjoy Scrapping" where I`m guest-designing this month. The "Pixie Glen Kit"  I worked with is featuring Prima Marketing`s "Pixie Glen" collection and I had a blast working with it.
This is how I began creating my layout.....I cut into two parts the pattern paper....
 and I exchanged the places...
The two parts I gathered together by cross-stitching. I used flocked rub-ons on top of the clock....
As usually I stamped most of my embellishments and then cut them out....
The bird cages I used are die-cut stencils from Marianne Design.....
And two more close-ups.....
And this was my last project I made with this beautiful kit!

Enjoy your Saturday and keep on smiling....just like Me :-)

Webster`s Pages and Glue Arts

Hi there!
A few days ago I shared with you some news about Webster`s Pages and Glue Arts.......we teamed up and we had a swap with our products.
I aslo shared with you two close-ups of my project and today I`d love to show you my layout.....
I love working with the Glue Arts Products. The Glue Glider Pro is very light and comfortable to use. My kids (at age 4 and 8) tried it out and it`s just perfect for their little hands......they didn`t get messy at all!
What I mostly enjoyed using the Glue Glider Pro was to apply my trims.....
Because my layouts have always dimension, the U Cut It foam blanks are the perfect solution. It really gives the dimension I want to achieve on my projects and the most important thing is that I can cut it the size as big as I want....
Products I used: 
(click on the product so you can see it)
Both Design Teams (Webster`s Pages and Glue Arts Girls) are creating so much beauty to inspire you.
Please visit both blogs to see what I`m talking about.....



Have a great weekend!

*NEW* TSC ~Cozy Xmas~

Hi there!
Today I`m sharing with you my second layout I created with the gorgeous and so beautiful NEW collection from TSC (The Scrap Cake)  ~Cozy Xmas~
It`s a Christmas collection, I know, but I challenged myself to create an everyday layout using a photo of me :-)
And a few close-ups of my layout.....
The beautiful swirl you see is a hand-made clay gift from my friend Corina van Holstein (Thank you, sweetie)!
I cut out the tiny letters from the paper pad (6" x 6") which has a sheet of paper with beautiful numbers & letters to create an Advent Calendar....
For all the Dutch TSC fans: All The Scrap Cake collections are available to buy in SCRAPDELIGHT scrapbook store. Just follow the link ---------> HERE 

Thank you for visiting my blog!!!!!!
Wishing you a wonderful day!

Scrapdelight

Hi there!
Today I have for you an altered scalloped cardboard to show that I created for Scrapdelight. My project is approx. 17cm x 22cm and the products I used are mainly from Prima Marketing.
I used the packaging from Prima Masks for my background...
I cut one of the packaging so it`ll fit my cardboard. Then I inked the edges and I jane-stiched....
The scallops of the cardboard were firstly painted with Gesso and then with Distress Crackle paint....
I added a few embellishments that I made myself by stamping and cutting them out....
The butterfly was stamped twice and colored in with Copic Markers.
The bird-cage was also stamped and cut out. The two birds were also colored in with Copic Markers....
The ornate Frame chip pie is from Dusty Attic (N.B. Ii cut it into two parts). I firstly applied Gesso and then I added two colors Glimmer Glam....
These are the products I used and you can find them in Scrapdelight store:
It`s Friday and it`s challenge time at Scrapdelight! Create a card, layout or another project inspired by the Fall photo you see.... For more info how to play please follow the link --------> HERE
Here is my sample inspired by the photo.....
The canvas butterfly is from Prima Marketing, too. I used two colors Glimmer Mist. When it was dry I stamped on it using again "Alla Prima" cling stamps....
I used here Prima Marketing "Alla Prima" cling stamps...
The two cute buttons you see are from Webster`s Pages "Spring Market" collection....

Have a great day!

Hugs,
