Crafts: Autumn Acorn Necklace

I made this necklace for my mother a couple of years ago and I decided to film the process, since it is so very easy. It’s a really cute and fun necklace to make for yourself, a loved one or maybe for your bridesmaids on your autumn wedding! You can use any color pearl bead you like, cream, champagne, white, dark brown..

Received Mail: a postcard from Irene!

I was so excited seeing this lovely postcard in the mailbox, it was from my friend Irene! It says: “Lummelen is heel simpel, eigenlijk: doen waar je zin in hebt” which means “Mooching about is really simple, it just means doing what you feel like”. I contacted her on Facebook and now we finally set our Crafting Date on December 19th!

We have never met in real life, but we have been following eachother on social media for over 4 years and we both love to craft! Irene is really into Project Life and I am excited to learn more about it. I am going to show her what embossing is & what cool things you can do with it.

Ofcourse I will take pictures off the day and post them here! Have a great week!

Crafts: No Sew Fall Bunting

Yesterday I went to one of our gorgeous National Parks (Hoge Veluwe) and it was great. Fall was all around us & I was really inspired to make this no sew fall bunting! Use whatever fabric you have left over, it’s great to give your home an instant fall boost! I especially love the birch tree stars I found in the craft store, they are so cute! You can see more pictures and the timelapse video after the jump

Inspiration: 5 mini albums from just one 12 inch sheet!

All the templates, tutorials and mini albums that are floating around on the web.. I decided to make a short video in which I show you how to make 5 different mini albums from just one 12″ sheet of paper! You can use whatever paper you like, black, patterned, anything. The only requirement is that it has to be a 12 x 12 inch sheet.

You can embellish, paint, distress or stamp in the albums as much as you like. The templates that I have made all allow you to make pockets, cut out a thumb hole, make a cover with patterned paper, stitch or staple the spine, put tags or photos in the pockets, punch nice borders with border punches, add charms, tie them up with string or with small clasp.. The possibilities are endless!
