..... to stars and flowers that is..... Just can't get enough of these shapes at the moment... sorry about that ;-) I'll try to think outside of the box soon.. I promiss...

I hope you all had a great Xmas and that Santa brought you lots and lots of goodies. Unfortunately no Xmas in France @ my Grandma's house for me this year.. due to the snow we couldn't hit to road to go there last week.. so I ended up staying at home :-(

Buuuut.. staying at home meant: lots of ME-time!!! I started off with this baby-girl card (with some really really old Upsy Daisy papers)...
Some more details..... used my Cuttlebug polka dot embossing folder again...(and Dutchies: the silver letters are from Zeeman... they're so fun to use!)
And ended up creating a baby-boy one as well (since I trned over the pink Upsy Daisy papers and found out that the other side was blue!!). I know it's kinda similar as the baby-girl one.. But for this one I really had to step outside my comfy zone.. using blue is normally so NOT me.. hehe...but I guess I do like how it turned out..
Yup.. and more Puffy Paint, jewels and stars too.... :-) I hand cut the stars and used my circle cutter for the circle ring.
Right now I'm working on a new little step by step workshop.. hope to be able to post it overhere soon!!!

Wishing you an amazing new years eve.. and a HAPPY 2011!!!!

Winter wonderland...

.... yup that's how it looks like right now in my back yard..... It's been snowing a LOT these past days in The Netherlands.. and it definitely looks gorgeous outside!

I've been playing with some more scraps lately and created this card out of it.... not too happy how it turned out.. but hey....I do love the colors and all little details.. hehe..
And here's a close up..

Wishing you all a great week and good luck with all Xmas preparations... I sure still have to do a lot of things.. we'll be spending a few days in France @ my family.. just can't wait to see them again after such a long time!

Flowers, jewels & puffy paint ;-)

Somehow I always end up using the same element on my creations.. don't know why.. but it feels goooooood... hehehe.. Flowers, jewels and Puffy Paint are magical words in my scrappy-world.. haha!!!

Started off with a flower-shaped card made out of white cardstock here.. and added a few circle layers (with 3d tape) from Luxe Design scraps...
To give it a finishing touch I threw some flowers, jewels, puffy paint and staples onto my card.... I had planned to cut a circle out of the middle circle but it ended up at the right side of the circle.... but despite I had something else in mind.. it happily worked out pretty well.. hehe...
It's been snowing again last night.. brrrr.. I'd better stay inside the whole day today I think (since I'm having the day off).. :-)

Have a great Thursday!

It's beginning to look a lot like Xmas....

This definitely is the bussiest time of the year.. pffeewww... buuuutt... I FINALLY found some ME-time today to create a few little cards! YAY!!!

Couldn't resist playing with some Bella Blvd scraps that have been laying on my desk forever... hehe...I decided to create a Xmas card out of it (yup.. trying to think outside of the box a bit.. hehe)...
Just can't get enough of these fun shaped cards (which I've cut by hand BTW).
Yesterday I decided it was time to put up our Xmas tree (since I won't have time for it in the upcoming week or so)... totally love this cozy time of year. On top of that it has been snowing the whole day yesterday... yup.. it's beginning to look a lot like Xmas overhere!!!
Have a great Sunday and thanks again for stopping by!!!
