Just a note

I just HAD to make a note holder with my gorgeous paper, that are now my favourites. Could make a 1000 cards only using my Damask papers LOL.
I thought the stamp was just perfect for doing this. Had the thought of 'going out' (in this case for a coffee) in my mind and well... I just love this stamp. Very fun to colour too.
Used my new swirl stamps on the edges of the stamped image, coloured with my Derwent pencils (falling in love again with my pencils) and no use of flowers. I ADORE my MS butterfly stamp and want to use it on every card now!! Me and butterflies...
Some pearls and gems, distressing the edges and I have a finished note holder.

Card recipe:
Stamp ~ Whiff of Joy / Willow with Coffee and euhm... some swirl stamps
Colour medium ~ Derwent pencils / Colourless terpentine / white gel pen
Punches ~ MS large butterfly / small butterfly punch
Stickles and stuff ~ Frosted Lace / Liquid Pearls
Extra ~ Pearls / gems / sticky notes / distressing tool
Paper ~MME / The best of Damask

It's never too soon to make a Christmas Card

Just a quick card, entering in a few contest.

Stampin for the weekend ~ Anything goes

Wild Orchid Challenge ~ Make it Sparkle (I used Stickles on Henry's hat, on the flower and on the boarder of my stamped image)

Just had the feeling of doing a Christmas Card, just to get up to speed. Find them hard to make these days, being not able to use butterflies (I think it looks so weird, a butterfly during Christmas time :)).
Used a Henry Mouse stamp, my Damask papers and had a lot of fun colouring with my Derwent pencils again!
Some head pins, stickles, ribbon and flowers and voila

A little bit of magic might help...

Been really enjoying scrapping again, and completely now I've FINALLY found the papers I've always wanted to work with.
Too bad I have to go back to work soon. Oh well, can't have holidays all year round can I?
Been preparing my classroom too and I am so eager to see the new kids faces again :)

Back to the card... Sorry about the quality, I photographed it under my window where a lot of light came through.
I used another Whiff of Joy image with a text from the Sentiment Collection, that fits this stamp perfect.
Used my fab MS punches again, Stickled a little bit, added some pearls, distressed the edges and my card was born.
Thought it would be fun if it looked as if she had pearls on her, so used my Liquid Pearls, which I think I'm becoming very good at! (If I say so myself :))

Card recipe:
Stamp ~ Whiff of Joy
Colour Medium ~ Derwent pencils, Distress ink
Flowers ~ from my stash, don't know what brand they are
Punches ~ MS / Doily hearts / Large butterfly punch
Extra ~ Pearls, liquid pearls

A little blogcandy


I've been blogging for a while now (over two years now!! Amazing) I decided to celebrate a bit.
The school will be starting again soon and I know a lot of you will have some spare time to create because the kiddies are off to school again, so good reason to do this with a little extra, don't ya reckon?

What's in it?

- A little bit of bits and bobs, like:
* A stamp
* Some punched out butterflies with my new Martha Stewart punch
* Some flowers and rose buds
* A lot of ready-made stamped image, which includes a whole lot of stamps from Whiff of Joy
* Some ribbon
And... What's in the white box you wonder? It's a SURPRISE!! But those who know me, know what kind of addict I am and there's a little hint there... Just look closely to what's in the neighbourhood and you will have your clue :)

So... What do you have to do?

1. Become a FOLLOWER of my blog (because you really like my creations and not only my candy). Besides, this is easier if you want to find out if you have been the lucky winner.
2. SPREAD THE WORD, posting this picture in your sidebar leading people towards this post.
3. LEAVE A COMMENT under this post.

That's it! Easy, isn't it?


Oh... And a little extra. With every 50 followers I reach, I will add another extra. So spread the word! :)

+++ This candy will close September, 10 +++

Christmas in the summer

Another card from me!!! Bought some yummy Christmas papers and couldn't wait to use them.
Allthough I still have some summer stamps waiting to be inked, I used this already coloured stamp. Not the best of my colouring, but I had it lying around allready :)
And with the temperatures here (it feels like fall here believe me!) it wasn't too hard to come up with a Christmas card.

I was rummaging through some text stamps and found this amazing sentiment that fits the card well.
I also made up for my non-Stickles-use from last time. LOL.
Not 100% happy with this card, but hey... At least I got creative again :)

Card recipe:
Stamp ~ Whiff of Joy / Angel Henry House Mouse
Colour medium ~ Derwent pencils and colourless serpentine
Flowers ~ My stash
Charms ~ Whiff of joy
Extra's ~ Stickles/Brads/Ribbon my from stash and pearls
Punch ~ Leaf punch from Nellie Snellen (dies and embossing)

I'm a sucker for red shoes

Got a little time to craft and came up with this card...

Decided to use my Derwent pencils again. It's been soooo long since I've used them and seeing all these details, I thought it would be better playing safe :) I also had more matching colours than my Copics LOL.
I'm starting to wonder why I didn't use Stickles here. Maybe I'll still add them...

I've followd the Sketch from Friday Sketchers, so would like to participate in the challenge:

WOYWW Wednesday, August 11

Here's a look at my desk this week. Believe it or not, it took me two weeks to complete one card! (Remember last weeks desk with the papers, well... yesterday I finally did something with it)

Here it is from another angle. I also want to answer a few questions that some very snoopy people asked
1) Yes, that bird on top of the 'handy drawers' - as you all so lovelingly call them - is part of a candle. Got it as a pressie from the parents of one of my children I teached last schoolyear
2) Those 'picture magnets' aren't really photos. They are just pictures from the movie 'Happy Feet', we got them with the little Babybell cheeses.

Here's a sneak peak of my card.
Sadly I just managed 20-what blogs last week, but I have good reason!
Where I live, they organise an event every year, that lasts FOUR days!! (so wedsnesday to saturdayeve), and believe me... This is a wonder! It takes literally ONE STREET to move from my city to the next one, so this is really something to be proud of. Off course I couldn't miss this! And the fact that is completely free is a huge bonus!
I also went to Duinrell, a bigger indoor swimming pool than Océade and believe me, it was great! (A hole lot to believe from me this week hehe).
And after this tiring week I didn't feel too good (think I cought a bug or something) but now I am absolutely fine and ready for another WOYWW (Yeay, thank you Julia Dunnit for bringing this into my life) and I hope to do better his week.

Here's my finished card. It took me so long, but at least my mojo stayed with me during this card.
I coloured with Copics and used a lot of stickles and pearls!
For now... I'm STIIIILL waiting for some goodies to arrive (I've ordered them last week Tuesday and still pending... *sikes*)

Oh, and another plee to TURN OFF WORD VERIFICATION! (I know I'm not the only one that gets turned off by this :))

Now, thanks for looking and have a HAPPY WOYWW!!

Totally completely forgot that it's Wednesday already (having so much vacation really makes your days go bizar).
So not so much going on at my desk this week. I had some papers ready, but then didn't know what to make with it (didn't feel much like doing a card, wanted to make another project) and left everything as it is.
But you can still see some new fresh Whiff of Joy stamps on the corner there, ready to be inked up!

I decided to let you give a look at my tote. I got it as a pressie from my mum FOR NO REASON what so ever. Great great! Don't know what to do without it any more (but still need to make it "my own" as you all now what I mean)

And this is a card I made for a friend of mine (Hi *Liv* *waving at ya girlie*) because I really miss her cards on her blog, so this is a 'heads up' card to make her feel better accompanied with some goodies that I allready gave to her yesterday, so it's fine to give it to her.

So, now you've taken a look at my desk. If you wonder what other people have going on at their desks this week, then be sure to stop at
Julia Dunnit's blog, where you can find all the details.

Oh and I really want to mention this: I finally made it through ALL the desks last week! (but now it feels like I've accomplished another goal in my life haha)
And I loved leaving comments on everyone's blog, but I really DON'T like WORD VERIFICATION!!! So PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE TURN IT OFF!!! Thank you :)

Have a lovely day!
