Wonderful Times | Scraptastic Club

And here's another layout created with the Skinny Love kit and add-on from Scraptastic Club. How I adore this kit!!

My daughter and her favorite teacher from High School. It was so fun to get a chance to meet up in Cafe du Monde in New Orleans (love the beignets there!!). And although the photo has got nothing to do either with cats or foxes, my daughter's white powered nose does resemble a cat's nose a bit, I thought.

And you know what? Scraptastic Club's new website is working!!! Have a look! Isn't it fab?!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Wishing you a wonderful day!

Louisiana - Pretty Little Studio

Hi everyone here's my very first “Let’s Go” layout. This collection from Pretty Little Studio is definitely my new favorite!! It’s amazing how many fun designs and embellishments this collection contains! It was so great to be able to finally dig in! and I had so much fun creating this page. Lucky for me we travelled quite a lot so I have many photos to scrap with this collection.

I started this layout with the Louisiana digital cut file (from The Cut Shoppe) and took it from there.

My favorite item in this collection is definitely the vellum tape, which is just like washi tape. I used three pieces on my page and as it’s a brand new product in the Pretty Little Studio shop I was very curious to see how this would turn out. Well, it’s awesome! It’s very sticky and very easy to use!! I very much hope all the next collections will contain this vellum tape too!!

And I soooooo love this cut file!! You know Ashley created cut files of every State? Go here to check them out!

Here’s a list of what I used to create my page: Let's Go collection.
Patterned paper: Dallas, Chicago, Portland, Anchorage; Clear sheet: Go West black; Shipping Tags: Salt Lake clear; Flair: Fresno; Clear Shapes: Pacolet; Stars: Spain; Tickets: Define.Travel.; Stickers: GeoTag, Vellum Tape.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! Have a great day!

Scraptastic Club Sketchy Thursday | The Bestest Friends

Good morning everyone! I've got another layout for you using Scraptastic Club's September "Skinny Love" kit. Yesterday the sketch challenge went up (on Scraptastic's facebook page as the website isn't up just yet) and here's what I made: 

The photos are - again - from Manon's year in the US. This was a sweet sixteen birthday party for her friend Lindsey. No need to tell you she had an amazing time! 

I used lots of Crate's Wonder collection together with some of Scraptastic's exclusive products, like the white paper with the flags, the wood veneer, the cork circle and the die-cut word "the bestest". 

And this is the sketch Susan designed for us:

Thank you so much for visiting my blog! Hope you'll have a wonderful day!

Another Pinterest Monday at Scraptastic Club!

For yesterday's "Pinterest Monday" at Scraptastic Club Carol Monson and I chose this fun illustration we found here on Pinterest:

And here's what I created using this pin for inspiration:

I used Scraptastic Club's September "Skinny Love" kit and add-on which was filled with Crate Paper's "Wonder" collection and although I don't have cats (is never going to happen either as we're all very allergic to them) I really LOVE this collection, especially that sheet with all the houses!

Here I fussy cut the lowest row of houses from the "Cheerful" sheet: 

And from the "Bright" sheet I fussy cut the word HAPPY:

Love those puffy stickers!! The fabric tag is from Pinkfresh Studio, awesome right?

 Also love those big die-cuts like the camera!!

Heart You | Imaginisce

Today I've got another layout created with the awesome Give Thanks collection up on Imaginisce's blog. This time though, I used the collection for a totally different kind of layout, namely one of my youngest son and daughter who had just been to "Build-A-Bear". We don't have these stores in The Netherlands and it has been a long time wish for both of them to go there.

Because the lights in the shop were a bit yellow and my son's vest was orange the photos matched the colors of the Give Thanks collection perfectly. The heart cut file is from The Cut Shoppe and I chose it because of the "pie" parts, which gave me the opportunity to use many different patterned papers.  

I love to add hand written journaling to my pages and in this case I decided to write along the edge of the heart shape. Die-cuts have always been a favorite of mine and I just love the jar die-cut in this collection:

And how about the puffy "squirrel" sticker? Isn't he adorable?

I used Imaginisce's largest paper punch (initially meant for the I-Top tool) to create to circles behind the die-cuts:

How I love this collection!! Can't wait to see what you'll create with it! 

Imaginisce: patterned paper, die-cuts, puffy stickers (Give Thanks); American Crafts: cardstock, Thickers. Tools: Imaginisce Paper Punch 34 mm. Other: digital heart cut file: The Cut Shoppe.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog again today!
