Another snow-layout

With the cold temperatures over here in the Netherlands I considered another snowlayout appropriate.

This one is based on this sketch from Creative Scrappers. As you probably have noticed I love working with sketches and this one was no exception!

As you can see I enjoyed myself with 8 different Cuttlebu Embossing Folders. This is by the way a great idea to get rid of some white scraps!

Both the white and blue cardstock are by Bazzill.
The snowflakes are mini chipboards from Maya Road, which I inked white and then embossed it so they became shiny. Circles are made with spellbinders.

Frozen sea

Here are two entirely different lay-outs than what I have been showing you lately, theme-wise!
Four years ago I lived in Romania for six months. In the winter it gets really cold over there (think minus 20 degrees or more) and this particular winter it was so cold the Black Sea was frozen. Of course we had to see this, so we took the train for a short holiday!

The layout on the left was based on this sketch from Capture these sketches.

I used Bazzill cardstock (blue, white, red and kraft), the blue swirly paper I believe was Making Memories, Tim Holtz Edge Distresser, Faded Jeans Distress Ink, silver flakes from Ebay and a grey and brown stabilo pen.

The other layout was based on a Twisted sketch.

The twist was "envelope", so I put my journaling in a little envelop on the bottom left.

I used the same ingrediënts as the layout above, so it would make a nice spread. Hope you like them!

Butterfly album 11

Finally! I hope you enjoyed my album filled with butterflies!

Here is my last layout:

Based on this sketch, switched the embellisments up a little bit.

Ingrediënts: Paper is Scenic Route, Flower is a Bosskut die, Fiskars apron lace punch, Basic Grey Swirl stamps, Zing embossing powder, Versamark ink, heatgun.

This is the one post before the last one :).

The second layout from today is this one:

Based on this sketch:

Paper is Bo Bunny, swirl is Prima, ribbon is from the market, alphabet is Quickutz daisy.

Pagemaps Sketch

I thought I'd give you a break from all the butterflies...by showing you this layout I made this weekend.

This sketch was posted on a forum where I come often (Royal Lemon). I also entered it into Ingeborg's Scrapbooking Competitions.

As you see I switched it upside down. Here is my take on it. I love how it turned out!

The little birdhouses are digital stamps from In Style Stamps and can be found here.

The tree I made after this card. Today she posted a tutorial on how to make the tree. Mine is a little diffent because I saw the tutorial once I finished the tree. You can find the tutorial here!

Ingrediënts: Scenic Route Paper, Quickutz leaf die, In style digital stamps, copic markers, Pipoos little bird punch.

Butterfly album 1

First of all a happy new year to you all! One of my resolutions for the next year is to post on my blog more often...starting today! To make it a little easier for myself, I lined up a lot of posts that will appear in the next months. The coming weeks I will be showing you layouts of a butterfly album I made. All layouts are 8x8.

First the front:

As you can see pretty simple: just covered chipboard and bind it all rings. I used the largest size, although they are still too small...but well, who cares? Unfortunately I can't remember the manufacturer of the paper.

This is one of the first layouts:

I used this sketch from Let's capture these sketches:

Paper: Scenic Route Ashville (Tree is a cutout from one of the Kraft papers in this line)
Cardstock: Bazzill
Punches: Martha Stewart Garden Trellis and Large Monarch Buterfly punches.
