Playing catch up

26 April 2014

This week has been really busy: getting back into the school rhythm, preparing a school trip, prepping Robin's communion, ..... I haven't had much time to blog or create. Today I have a couple of projects to show you. First a layout which was on the Glitz Design blog. This week we worked with a CLEAN&SIMPLE theme. I used very light colours with hints of red, black and blue. It doesn't necessarily meet the clean&simple ideas some might have but it is my take on it. 

The next layout is a 30- minute, just have some fun creating  layout. I used the PLUS ONE collection by Amy Tangerine and added some Studio Calico embellishments.

And finally, here are 3 cards I created for the American Crafts blog where this week we focused on SPORTS.

I usually add the links of the products I used so that you can buy them at TwoPeas but TwoPeas doesn't have a lot of these supplies in stock. I am working on another linking system and hope to use it soon. You can find most of the products at SCRAPBOOK.COM. 

Have a FAB weekend. 

Messy Monday

14 April 2014

A new week starts. We are taking a small road trip to the Belgian seaside and I can't wait to spend some fun time with the kids and my husband. Nothing special, just sand and sea. 
Today I have two layouts to show you and some phone photos. The first layout was created with the Scraptastic April kit: Worth Wondering. I used lots of messy techniques. Some of the products were: gesso, neocolor2 crayons, Izink inks. There is a short video (sorry no explanations as I was a tired and my voice was acting up).

The second was created for the Glitz Design blog where this week we are focusing on SPRING/EASTER. I started off by applying gesso to the background and adding a doily and some butterflies. Then I used my Izink inks. Really love how this layout turned out. 


And some pics of my boys ..

Video Sunday

13 April 2014

It is Sunday which means VIDEO time.
I made two videos with my last kit from Scraptastic Kit club. I'll show the second tomorrow. Today's layout is based on a grid design but I took a more approach and didn't worry to much about straight lines and accurate measurements. I hope you enjoy it. Tomorrow's video will show some "messy" techniques. So don't forget to pop by. 


All in a song ...

12 April 2014

This week on the Glitz Design blog our creations are inspired by music. I used the lyrics of a song by Christina Perri called "Human".
I am a huge music fan, play a couple of instruments and used to sing in a choir and follow singing lessons. Music has played an important part in my life as I met my husband though it. He joined the brass band I was playing in. Even now I still treasure music and I am always listening to something when I scrap. I love all styles from pop to jazz and classical music. I picked the lyrics of a song by Christina Perri for this layout. A song which reminds me I am only human and that I don’t need to be a “perfect” wife, mum, teacher, … that I can make mistakes and learn from them. Let music inspire you, comfort you, motivate you … it is was makes it so special.

My last kit ...

11 April 2014

Yes. April is my last month at Scraptastic Kit Club. I have decided to stop for the time being. I really want to work on my online classes which will start this summer. I am planning on doing at least 2 full online classes a year which will consist of 5 videos around one topic (pdf files to with each video and freebies). This first will be about LAYERING as that has been one of the techniques a lot of people have been asking me questions about. I'll do one or two smaller classes throughout the year as well. The larger classes will be sold at 10€ (about 14$).

This month I got the Worth Wondering kit. I made 5 layouts with it. I'll be showing two today and have a video for another two. The 5th will go live on the Scraptastic blog on Monday.


Check back in tomorrow for my layout which was on the GLITZ DESIGN blog this week and Sunday will be video day. I'll also blog about my trip to Paris on Sunday so stay tuned.
