Challenge at Nikki Sivils

We have a sketch challenge going on on Nikki Sivils blog! A few designers did this sketch and do take a look how that turned out. The sketch is by Anna Bowkis.
Do join us, link your Nikki Sivils layout at the blog and on April 30th there will be a winner announced. I used the "Bella Blue and Oscar too" line, it's not only great for dogs but also for kids, just think playhouse instead of doghouse. Lol!

Thank you so much for looking! Looking forward seeing your take of the sketch, leave me a comment with a link too if you like!
Don't forget to have a look at the Scrapgal blog tomorrow, it's my last day as Guest Designer and last post there. Today you can find there a wonderful post from Chris with stunning cards.

More Prima

Last week I started this layout with some beautiful photo's of Mara but after her terrible accident of last week it took me a while to finish this. It was hard for me to look at the photo's. Silly he? (she fell off her bicycle and lost her two front teeth and bruised knees and hand, right before my eyes). Now it's been a week, and I needed to get back to scrappin' again so here it is:
Prima's monthly sketchHere's my take of the sketch: I used the My Creative Scrapbook main kit.

The innosence flowers are painted with Shimmerz Paints

A Jenni Bowlin butterfly goes so well with this.

Gorgeous lace (thanks Monique, I'm loving it!)

Have a great weekend!

Embossed flowers at The Gal blog

Hi all, as you know I'm this months Guest designer at Scrapgal.com and I put up a tutorial on the Gal Blog about embossing your flowers.
It's so easy and simple and it gives a little extra on your flowers.
I used plane white flowers by Artemio and put them between my roses die from Cuttlebug.
You need your A, B and B plate for this.
Ofcourse you can use any type of flower, I also used the so sweet Prima Rasberry flowers.

With Distress Ink, vintage photo, you can add a bit of extra

And to get more color on my plane white flowers, a splash of Glimmer Mist

This is how I used them on my layout:

I added a bit of Broken China Distress Ink to the edges of the flowers.

Don't you just adore the Prima papers? It's the Strawberry Kisses collection, with E-line swirls, pebbles on the flowers, the journaling sticker is from the Rasberry collection and the stamps are golden oldies, Scrapperware stamped with Ranger's Archival Ink Coffee color. The cardstock is White by Bazzil.
Thanks so much for looking.
Hope to see you on Scrapgal.com, it's such a fun place, do check it out.
Wishing you all a happy and creative weekend.

DT Creabest

Hi all, did you have a good time on the blogs of the blog crawl last weekend? It sure was amazing!
Well, I have some good news, I joined the DT of the Dutch scrapshop Creabest in Ommen.
Last week we got together and I made my first layout for the store.

I recently made two other layouts for the shop, they will be in the store tomorrow.
If you have a change to be in the store, I put my name on the backsite of the layouts and all the products that I use.
This evening I treated myself to a super Prima workshop in April by Tracie Hudson. We are going to make two layouts. Can't wait!
I got me some Webster Pages and GCD Studio last week, so I will be busy this weekend, hope I can show you some nice layouts and/or altered items!
Have a good week!
