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!

Gift: A Gift for A Friend with Flow Magazine

It is my friend Marie’s birthday this Tuesday, so I thought I would share my making of the gift package with you

The theme is flowers, because flowers are always nice. I put on a gift tag on the string in the end too! And you can also put in a real flower on the actual day of giving. If you are wondering why I included the “Europa” tag, it’s because when Marie was younger, she always wanted to go to Europe (she is from the USA) and now she is in Europe! Here’s hoping she doesn’t see this video!

Also, have you already heared of Flow Magazine? It’s a really great, bulky magazine with tons of free goodies, heavy paper and beautiful patterns. You should check it out, they went international this year!

Check out the video for whats inside after the jump!

Crafts: Mixed Media Canvas: Love

It was a busy weekend, one of my friends returned from Barcelona after spending more than 7 months there. He showed up on a surprise visit in between the making of this canvas. It was a very nice evening and he got me a wooden spoon which he had wood burned (really cool!).

Crafts: Back to Nature

I woke up early this morning and decided I wanted to make a woodland related postcard. I live near the Veluwe, which is a beautiful piece of the Netherlands. We have deers, wild boars, squirrels and the Veluwe always looks just absolutely beautiful, no matter what time of year. Since autumn is upon us, everything is gold and brown and I can’t wait to take a hike!
