merry Christmas

Hi everyone,

This morning I was playing around with my Silhouette again and came up with the following 2 designs. It's 2 print and cut Christmas labels, usable for various purposes.

They're free to download, but they're for personal use only and some feedback would be great as I would really love to hear what you think.

Hope it van help you create something beautiful.

Gift Box

Hi Everyone,

This past week I've been taking my first steps onto designing something for the Silhouette Cameo and I came up with a  little gift box (I got the idea from a Nescafe Dolce Gusto box) and I actually think it turned out quite nice...
The box as well as the stamped postcard were made with Kraft paper, the design paper is from BoBunny and I coloured Tilda with distress markers. The 2 stars on the right are dies from Marianne Design and the one on the left I cut with the Silhouette. If anyone would be interested in the gift box studio file, I made a link to download it here. I would love to hear what you think.

Furthermore I would like to enter this box in the following challenges:
duymelot design team - anything goes
just magnolia - What's new
simply magnolia - anything goes
magnolia mania challenge - Blue - Brown

See you next time

early christmas

Hi everyone,

Here I finally am again after a long period of silence. A lot has been going on in my life; some things not so nice but the news that I'm going to be a grandmother has really made me the happiest person in the world. And with all the happy feelings, the inspiration also came back. So here's my first Christmas card of the year:

I used a stamp from the new Magnolia Christmas collection. The card-shape, christmas trees and ticket were cut with the Silhouette; the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the design paper is from BoBunny (Snowfall Collection),. I've coloured the stamp with a combination of Distress markers and -re- inkers on Montval Canson.

The inside of the card was decorated with a sketch from the Silhouette Cameo.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

midweek magnolias - non domesticated animal
7 kids challengeblog - anything goes
anything goes challenge blog - early christmas

Feels great to be back. Hope not to keep you waiting this long next time. Bye for now and have a great week

Goodmorning everyone
Another week has passed and in between work and cleaning the house, I found some time to make this sunny paper bag. It's for a friend of my daughter who needs a little bit of cheering up.

The bag (yellow cardstock from Tom Holz) as well as the tag and sun were made from templates in the silhouette store. The design paper is Howdy Doody from my Mind's eye. Tilda was colored with distress refillers and the flowers are from WIld Orchid Crafts.

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
dutch magnolia lovers - anything but a card
totally tilda challenge blog - Tilda with bunting and/or pennant
magnolia down under challenges - decorate a paper bag for a gift.

Well, we got some wonderful weather coming our way in Holland. Hope you do too.
Enjoy the weekend

Hi everyone,
What a horrible weather we had yesterday morning. I was right in the middle of some really heavy rainfall. So I stayed indoors most of the time to do some crafting.
And this is the result
Most of the stuff I found in my cupboards only the background paper of the stamp is by Maja Design and the flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts. I coloured Tilda with distress re-inkers.
The embossing was done with the cuttlebug and then I added some colour with chalk.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
magnolia stamp lovers - distress (I did a bit of distressing on the edges of the card and used                                                 distress  ink to color the stamp)
totally tilda - Tilda with pennant and/or bunting
magnolia down under challenges - Bingo (I picked sentiment/tilda/lace, ribbon)
just magnolia - purple and white
magnolia-licious highlites  - LOVE blog hop

See you again soon
