That scrappy girl sketch

I love the sketches by Julie Bonner, so whenever I find one I save it on my computer. This time I even managed to finish the matching layout before the deadline!

Check the sketch out here!

Royal Fiesta mini-album

Woohoo! Three posts in a day...that's to make up for the months of silence :).

Last week there was again a Royal Fiesta at the Royal Lemon forum and here is the mini-album we made:

Buttercup bag

For my birthday I got a Janome Sew Mini from my parents....and below is one of the first projects I made with it:

It's a buttercupbag! The pattern I found on the net. It's from Rae. You can find it here:

Best of all: it's free! I made an enlarged version of the bag and changed a few things....but still really easy to make. I left out the pocket inside, but added ribbons for closure.

To decorate I added a flower. You can find the tutorial here:

Baby socks cupcakes

Last week this link was posted on Royal Lemon:

Baby socks cupcakes

I needed a baby shower gift for a co-worker, so I decided to give it a go :).

Here are my results:

They were really easy to make! Socks, cakestand, cupcake holders and little flags were all bought at the Hema.

Sugar Nellie Duda Daze Bloghop

Yeah! It's finally here, the super blog hop from Sugar Nellie! I was one of the lucky sugar addicts to receive one of the new Diane Duda stamps to play with.
You're supposed to be coming from Rosaliens blog. If not, I advise you to start at the Sugar Nellie blog, so you won't miss out on any of the great cards and stamps!

The stamp I received is called Shaken, not kissed...and I think it's a real fun one! I made two cards with it, and this is number one!

The description for this card I found here at the Stamparctic blog. Check the post out, 'cause there are two other cute cards in the same tutorial. It was really easy to make! The papers I used are from We R Memory Keepers and are called Tiffanys. Really nice funky colored papers! I colored the image with coordinating Copic Colors. The border is done with the Fiskars Apron Lace punch. I notice myself using it all the time, love it!

The little crowns are Heidi Swapp chipboard, which I gave a purple color with an cats eye violet inkpad. Love how that turned out, tried it for the first time...but the color is really good and it was done in no time. The happy birthday stamp on the front I bought at an event, don't know the brand. Ribbon is from a local store here in the Netherlands (Xenos).

Onto card number two....Every princess ought to have a castle, so I went up on the internet...googled for a castle coloring page and found the one below!

After that all I had to do was resize it (just used microsoft word), print it out and colour it in. Again I used my copic markers. I double matted the image on Bazzill cardstock, stamped the Diane Duda stamp, colored that one too...and put the card together. The background is from Basic Grey, from the Sultry range. The ribbon was a leftover from my Christmas decoration.
I left the inside blank, so there would be lots of room to write a message.

I hope you enjoyed my two cards. Lets hop on to the next blog, lots more to see!
Please hop on to Angeljakki, who I am sure will have made a fabulous card (or maybe even more!) with another great Duda Daze stamp!

At the blog they are offering a position for a guest DT spot and I'd like to enter with above card!

Felt creations

I have bought some of the cute kits of Atelier Sterre and when I started making them I couldn't stop, love them!

Cute little birdhouses:

There should have been embroidery on them, but didn't really like that, so left them plain. They are really easy to make!

Cute little watering cans:

Have you seen the little bird?
And finally a garden girl. This one was the most complicated, but I like how she turned out.

Next on my wishlist from them are the newest kits with beachhouses and the beachgirl!

Fabric album

A while ago I bought a camp kit from Royal Lemon. In it were fabrics, felt, cute journaling rounds, cardboard and white paper and binding rings.
This is what I made with it. The leaves are made with a sizzix die, cut from the felt with my cuttlebug. The decoration (flowers, cherries etc.) on the rounds is all bought by Brocante roosjes, a great webshop with the cutest embellishments for great prizes! Click on the name to take a look.

Time for the pictures:

Lots of Lay-outs!!

I have been on a roll the last couple of days and created lots of layouts. Didn't know where to start at first, so I worked from sketches and scraplifted some layouts I really love! Prepare for a lot of pictures in this post!

Paper is all Basic Grey Ambrosia, rubon is also Basic Grey. This LO was inspired by this one, made by Kelly Goree. Click on the name and check out the inspiring blog.

Next up is this cute little duck. Paper is again by Basic Grey, but this time from the Offbeat line. Ribbon and flowers from stash, little white heart is bought at Brocante Roosjes. Letters are a quickutz alpha.

This layout was lifted from this one. It is made by Leah Killian, who is an amazingly talented scrapbooker! Check out her blog by clicking on her name again.

Next is this one with little paper rolls...great way to get rid of some of your stash!

This one was inspired by this Lo of Tracie Hudson. Click again please ;).

The next layouts where all made based on sketches.

That's all for now :). Comments are greatly appreciated!
