Sneak peak and Happy Newyear

Hi all, hope you are enjoying the last day of the year. It has gone by so fast!
Never scrapped so much as this year but my goal is to scrap even more the coming year and find me some nice DT's!
As you might have noticed, I have a new blinkie here on the blog, I have the honor to be on the wonderful new Challenge Blog that is part of Tidbitz in Time. It's called Bird is the Word and you will find the first challenge and layouts of this amazing talented team in a few days.
This sneak peak is not for the new DT, it's something I'm doing for myself. It's not completely finished because my printer failed on me but you will get an idea with this photo.

Well, that leaves me with saying have a happy and creative New Year.
Be safe!

Little Shop of Sketches

There is a new sketch... no I don't say this right, there are two new sketches on Little Shop of Sketches made by our Guest sketch artist Danielle Young.
I've done only this sketch, thing are a bit chaotic now around the holidays.
My fellow DT members have done such a great job on both sketches.

I used the My Creative Scrapbook december main kit, full of wonderful papers and embellishments.
MM paper music note ledger Noël
Bo Bunny Noël chipboard, combo stickers alpha's, holly berry wraps and paper
Teresa Collins Noël chipboard frames
Distress Ink Barn Door and Vintage Photo.
The floral is by Prima
I cut out the leaves real carefull and placed that over the piece of paper.

The little girl is me, on the left is my mum and on the right a dear friend of the family.

Thank you for looking again,
wishing you a very merry Xmas, enjoy your days and I hope to be back before the year ends.

sneak peak

Hi girls, I have a little sneak peak for you that will be on the LadyBug and Friends blog the 17th of this month.
I don't have much to share with you at the moment. I'm working on a mini album and that takes some time.
Unfortunately Treasure Scrapbooking has no kit this month, this is the last month that Erin is keeping the message board open, shop is already closed. Hopefully there will be a new buyer that will have it up and running soon.
This sunday the last sketch of Little Shop of Sketches will go online for this year. Tanya will continue next year februari with new sketches.

I will be back in a few days, take care and enjoy your creativity!
Do not dwell in the past,
do not dream of the future,
concentrate the mind on the present moment.

Little Shop of Sketches

Hi, here is my layout for sketch #76 at Little Shop of Sketches.
I used lots of Bo Bunny, love this winter line.
The backround is made with Bazzil white cardstock, sprayed with Glimmer Mist and added some splashes with Glimmer Glaze.
I do love making my own backrounds!!

The rub-ons are also Bo Bunny's but from a few years ago, saved them for a special occasion and this was it! lol! The punch I've used is Martha Stewarts'. Don;t you just adore that trim? That trim was why I bought this line. So cute!

If you want to do the sketch, sent your take of it to Tanya or myself and you will be featured on the blog of Little Shop of Sketches.
Check ou the blog for more information about the prizes to win.

Enjoy the rest of your week!

Playing with beeswax

I finally had some extra time to try out my Ranger Melting pot with the Beeswax. That's so much fun!
First you put a loose pan in the melting pot, then some beeswax and turn up the heat.

I wanted to work with some pretty old napkins I had still laying around to put on a square tag.
All you need is a larger brush, a napkin (only the top layer), a tag, a hot wax stylus tool and some Ranger Perfect Pearls.

Put the melted wax over the tag, that dries very fast.
Then put the napkin over your tag, just how you like it to be and start to go over it with your hot wax stylus tool. The wax under the napkin melts and "glues" your napkin to the tag.

Add some perfect pearls to the edges to get some shine and done is your tag.

I've done two sides cause I want to put it in a mini album as a small page.
Thanks for looking again!

A layout as a gift

Last friday was my neighbours' birthday and what to give a girl that has it all? Well, then you make a layout in a frame!!
I took this photo last new years day. Their son looks so cute!
Had some winter papers of Bo Bunny that fitted the photo so well.

The text is a rub-on from Bo Bunny for a few years ago

Just like this overlay, also BB.

The ribon is BB, the metal frame is from Tim Holtz with alpha's by Cosmo Cricket.
The frame is from a cheap store called "Action". I took out the glass and had to crop the paper a little bit.
Thank you for looking and for all your comments. I love them!

Crop at Treasured Scrapbooking

Hi all, hope you've had a good weekend. I sure have. The Get a Jump on Xmas crop at Treasured Scrapbooking was so much fun!

Not only did I scrap some examples but I also did a few challenges.

This card was for the Card Sketch challenge. Simple style but this Teresa Collins paper is so fine. As well as for layouts (scroll down and you can see! lol!) as for cards.

I used the Noël collection papers and riboon, Spellbinders die and a metal corner from the local craft store.

This layout was an example for the color challenge. Use red, cream and green, well the papers from Girls Paperie has it all. This paper is special to me, it was a gift from my sweet friends for my birthday last month. Girls.... thanks again!!!!

I love my Tim Holtz dies, this roset large die is so fine. I received my second hand QK Revolution with the large plates and tried a piece of Teresa Collins paper, the roset came out so good that I used it right away. It needed only a little bit of Distress Ink and a piece of pearls that I had left.

Roses are Prima's, the vine of crystals is by Magnolia.

This layout was the example for the ad inspiration challenge.
I loved the text on this ad so I used that idea.

Again the Teresa Collins Noël collection

The heart is a Tim Holtz die, it has three different parts. I used the double sided paper from TC, turned the middle heart and finished the outside with Glossy Accents.

Last but not least I did this layout sketch challenge.
Cardstock with a little Glimmer Mist in green and silver. Pink Paislee paper, Bo Bunny alpha and ribbon and the quote is by Teresa Collins

The flower I made myself with a little crochet work from my mum.

I glimmer misted this bit, then colored it with a waterpen and Distress Ink. Loved to do this, to give some shadow and a little bit of color.

Thank you again for looking and all your sweet comments.
Hope to see you on Treasured Scrapbooking someday, it's a fun place to be.

Enjoy your week, make it a creative one!
I know I will, so many idea's !!!!!!

October layouts TS

Hi all,
October was a kit less month for Treasured Scrapbooking, the DT picked some things out of the store and this is my findings:

Lot's of Teresa Collins and Fancy Pants which I used together in this layout

This was a cooky jar, now turned into something special. I love the TC papers and quotes.

Ofcourse a home made flower

And another layout with Fancy Pants papers

I noticed after making the photo's that I forgot the letter "R" in Friesland!! Oops! I corrected it but had no change to make another photo. Please forgive me.......

again a quote by Teresa Collins.

Well, thank you for looking. Enjoy the rest of your sunday!
I'll be playing with my november kit and making things for the Treasured Scrapbooking Crop next weekend.
Are you joining us? A fun weekend of challenges and nice prices to win!
Will tell you more later this week.

Projects with lots of TA

Hi girls,
So I have made 5 projects for the Tattered Angels DT call. I had lots of fun but didn't make it. Hopefully next year cause I love working with their products. There are so many talented scappers, it's hard to compete! Congrats to the girls who made the team.
I made two layouts, one album, one card and a fabric heart.

That's it for now, I will be back soon with TS layouts!

Have a great week!
