Crafts: Vintage Collages

So, you might have already seen some of my collages in my Etsy shop, but today I decided to make two more! It’s just so much fun figuring out where everything goes and matching the papers and colors! It takes me about two hours to make one and I love every minute of it. I bought this heavy Mixed Media card stock which is perfect for collaging. You can buy them in my Etsy shop for just $25 and they are one of a kind.

The butterfly one I did today features some pretty cool old encyclopedia paper I got from SimonSaysStamp. I used different papers, mainly Prima Marketing & Tim Holtz. I used 3d foam tape to make the butterflies stand out more. On the black poison one, I used mini clips from Idealogy and also used 3d foam tape for the image. Unfortunately, there’s no video for these ones, but I will upload a new video soon!

PS: hope you like the new layout & logo! I made it myself!

Finds: Dutch Postcrossing Stamps!

By now, all of you should already know Postcrossing, the website that connects all mail fans over the world. Postcrossing is gaining fans rapidly and the Dutch PostNL has decided to produce Dutch Postcrossing stamps!

Dutch Postcrossing Stamps

From the Postcrossing blog:

Keeping in mind that Postcrossing postcards travel mostly to foreign destinations, PostNL created a set of stamps that double as tiny tourism ambassadors, helping draw attention to the country’s most interesting and attractive sites. The resulting design (by Reinier Hamel from Sin agency) is a bright sheet of stamps, which promises to bring a conversation topic (and burst of colour!) to many future postcards.

The stamps each feature an eclectic mix of popular Dutch highlights (De Hoge Veluwe, de Nachtwacht & more!) and will be available for Dutch citizens from March 29th.

You can read more (and pre-order!) on the Postcrossing blog here.
