Hi everybody! How are you doing? I've been keeping myself busy with day-to-day activities and I've been experimenting in the kitchen. I love cooking and baking and I always keep my eyes out on the new things I can/have to try. So if you have a favourite recipe that you care to share, please do so. :) I was thinking about posting some of the stuff I make in the kitchen here, but then I've decided to keep this blog for my papercrafts (and maybe occassional piece of handmade jewelry) only. However, I'm sharing most of the dishes I make on my instagram so feel free to have a look, if you want. :)
Besides cooking and baking I've also made a couple of cards, which I would like to share with you. You can see the first one below and the others will follow in the upcoming weeks.
So, the first card I want to share with your is a Christmas one. I decided to use one of the super cute images from Severine Aubry on my card - this little fella always brings a smile to my face. :D I definitely wouldn't mind if he came here so we could share a cup of hot chocolate. ;)
I coloured the image with polychromos. I'm on a mission to "shop in my stash", so on this card I used quite a few things that I've had in my stash for what seems like forever - crystals, acetate frame with stars, rub-on sentiment and even the die cut frame is an oldie.
Have you started working on your Christmas projects? Or are you currently hooked on Halloween stuff?
So much for today. Wishing you all a wonderful day! xx

Hello everybody! How are you doing?
Today I want to share with you another Christmas card I made.
I don't have a printer so I very, very rarely use digi stamps, even though I have plenty in my collection. Do you use digi stamps? I know there are several advantages to digi stamps compared to rubber/clear ones (e. g. resizing images to your desired size, price etc.), but even so I prefer the "real" stamping - meaning using a rubber/clear stamp and ink. BUT there are some images that I really, really like that only come as digi stamps. So when I visited my parents one day I asked them if I could use their printer to print a couple of images. One of the images I printed was this cute image from Polkadoodles that I used on the card below.
I coloured the image with polychromos and added some liquid applique on parts of the image to make it more interesting. The papers are from DCWV. I decorated the card with some die cut stars and crystals. The sentiment is a rub-on from Stampin' up. I added some foam pads between the layers for some extra dimension.
I hope you like this card. Have you started on your Christmas cards yet or will you make them later in the year?
Have a wonderful day! xx

Hey, hey! How are you doing? Have your summer vacations started yet? We are still waiting for ours. But until they come I will play with my craft supplies and hopefully make several holiday cards so I will have enough for when the holidays actually come.
I would like to share one of the Christmas cards today.
I used the adorable image from MFT. First I coloured the image with my polychromos and then fussy cut it. Then I paper pieced the scarf so it matched the patterned paper. The papers are from Maja Design and Craft & you. I embellieshed the card with some lace, pearls, crystals and die cut snowflakes.
I raised different layers on foam pads for some extra dimension.
