On May 17 & 18 2008 I'll be teaching at the Eurocrop in Belgium (near Brussels)!!!!! I'm so excited (there will be a lot of French speaking scrappers coming over too.. that makes it even more exciting for me!!!! So happy I'm speaking almost fluently French!)
I'll be teaching 2 classes there (1 layout and 1 calendar class). Still can't believe they asked 'little' me for this awesome event with so many talented teachers!!!! I really hope that some of you will be able to come over to join me during the weekend!!!! I'll be back with some more detailed info asap!!!
As promissed in my previous post, I'm showing you 2 Christmas cards that I've created for Scrap4life!!! I've used Scenic Route patterned paper on both cards.
The wedding on Thursday was awesome!!! The bride looked so beautiful! Just loooove weddings! (hope my own wedding will be soon.. hehe..) We arrived at home around 2AM... and we had to be up again by 6.30AM... That wasn't too easy.. hehe... I was soooo sleepy at work the whole day!!!
Today I've spent a lot of time with my scrapbooking goodies all around me!!!! I managed to finish my layout for CreativeXpress.. I played with some yummie KI Memories papers!! YUM YUM!!!
***Edited 1: I just got a phonecall from my little sister!! She's having her baby NOW!! So excited about that!!!!!! In a couple of hours I'll be an auntie!!!!!!!!
***Edited 2: I'm an auntie of a beautiful little girl named Demi!! Everything went fast and very well! We went to the hospital directly after she was born to see her... so cute and tiny!!! I'll post some pics asap!!!

As promissed.. I've been working on a new little workshop for you all!! As Christmas will be here in a blink of an eye, I decided to do a Christmas card!!!!
Just like for my first workshop, I'd like to challenge you all to create a little card with this workshop and post it on your blog or somewhere else!! Don't forget to post a link to your card in the comments section of this post at latest on Saturday November 17th. I'll have my BF to pick a random winner for a little something on Sunday!!!
Needed: Piece of white cardstock in any size you want (distress the borders with ink or chalk), 5 strips of patterned paper (1 large one, 2 smaller ones and 2 tiny ones), 2 handcut stars made from patterned paper, a piece of floss, 1 safety pin, 1 stickpin, 1 little tag, 6 jewels, staples, Puffy Paint (or another kind of 3d paint), 3d foam tape, a hole puncher (or eyelet setter), if possible a sewing machine to stitch without thread on the borders of the cardstock.
Take the 2 handcut stars in front of you. Wrap the floss around one of the stars and add the safety pin with the tag and the stickpin to it. Distress the borders of both of the stars with ink or chalk.
- Take the 2 smaller strips of patterned paper in front of you and create a row of holes along the border of the paper by using a hole puncher (or eyelet setter).
- Tear the holes open to create a 'notepaper' look (just like it was just torn out of your notebook!), and distress the border and holes with ink/chalk. (I got this fun idea from Peggy!!)
Layer the strips of patterned paper and glue them to the middle of the card by starting with the smaller strips with holes, then add the biggest strip to it and end with the tiny strips on top of it. (distress all the edges of the strips if you like)
Add the 2 stars to the card (as shown)
Add the jewels to the upper right and the lower left part of the card (as shown). I added an extra jewel to the little tag, just to give it a finished look.
- Add little dots of puffy paint (or 3d paint) around the borders of the 2 stars
- Add 2 staples to the lower right part of the card.
We're having dinner in a couple of mins.. so gotta go for now!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend.. Have fun with the workshop.. just can't wait to see what you all come up with! Last time was so much fun!!!!

Remember I showed you all a sneak peek of a layout that I had created for Scrap4life a little while ago??? Well, our newsletter went out today.. so that means I'm allowed to show my creations!! Woohoo!! I'll start with the layout and I'll show you the cards that I've created later this week. We had to create a 'thankful' layout. So when I saw this picture I knew I had to use it for this assignment.. I'm so thankful to have this beautiful picture and to still have my grandparents in my life!!!
A lot of you girls (uhm.. and guys) are curious what my fun news is that I'm keeping for myself already for a little while now.. I still cannot tell you the exact details.. but I can give you a little hint: I'll be teaching some classes in 2008!!! So excited about that, I never did this before so I'm a little nervous too..but I still have a couple of months to prepare myself for this huge step in my life.. ..hehe..! As soon as I'm allowed to tell you more I will.. I promiss.. hehe..
I'm in the mood to do another little card workshop like the other day (you can find it HERE).. so I'll probably try to prepare one somewhere this week.. so be on the look out for that.. hehe..
Enjoy the rest of your day and thanks again for stopping by at my blog!!!!
