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: 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!

Crafts: Vintage Circus Postcard

I still had some great Graphic45 paper laying around from the “Le Cirque Collection” and decided to make this postcard! I also used some embossing and ink. The card turned out a little different than I planned, but I am happy with the result. It reminds me of the old Big Top, the Ringling Brothers… How exciting it must have been to visit the circus in the early 1900’s… Quick tip: if you are in the mood for a great circus movie, watch “Water for Elephants”. It stars Robert Pattinson & Reese Witherspoon and I really love it. Here are some pictures and yes, I made a video. The list of materials I’ve used are below the video. Enjoy!
