Altenew June Release Blog Hop

13 June 2018

Welcome to The June Release Blog Hop. If you have hopped over from  Laura Jane's blog you are right on track.

I love this month's release and I decided to use the Climbing Clematis stamp. I stamped the flower at the top and bottom and added some leaves around the photo. Some splatters add detail. 

Instead of stamping the buds in pink I opted to use a more peachy red tone and I'm happy I did. The two work really well together. 

For the title I did part of it in black and the most important word in green using two ink colours.


I'm giving away a 30$ gift voucher. All you have to do is leave a comment by Wednesday 20th. I'll announce the winner here.

What is your favourite?

Winnie Walter May Documentarian Day 2

8 June 2018

EDIT: I'm extending the giveaway until June 8th.

Hello everyone.

Today I'll be sharing my last project (projects) for Winnie and Walter. For my double project I decided to create a layout and as I had some leftovers I created a quick card too.

I do this a lot. I LOVE making layouts but I also enjoy creating cards but as I don't have much time I usually don't get out all my supplies just for a card so usually once I have finished a layout I just create a card at the same time.

For my projects I went through my patterned paper stash and picked out some fun vibrant patterns that go together. I cut out different sized balloons and then started playing with the design on my layout.

I drew some string by hand and also added a couple of bows that are on the die set to the balloons. For the embellishments I used some old stickers and chipboard elements.

The card was really simple and I used the same ideas as in the layout.

You can see how the two came together in the video. Some of the creative process is missing due to a problem with uploading the videos. I lost some of the videos. I hope it gives you an ideas of how the layout and card were made.

Thank you so much for having me as May 2018 Documentarian Winnie and Walter. I loved creating with your products and will create many more.

I'm giving away a 30$ coupon. Just comment and I'll pick a lucky winner next week Friday.

Altenew May 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

21 May 2018

Welcome to the May 2018 Release Blog hop. If you have come from the Simon Says Stamp Blog you are right on track. The Altenew blog hops are always such fun. Lots of inspiration and lots of prizes up for grabs.

I created a layout with the Garden Silhouette Bundle.

I paired it with the Layered Dahlia Stencil which I used to create a colourful background. I used an envelope pocket to add a backdrop for my photo.

The Silhouette Garden set was perfect for creating little embellishments. I stamped the images with a very light grey ink and then watercoloured them. 
For the title I used the word love from the Script Words die set which I cut with my Mini Blossom die cut machine from Altenew.

Winnie and Walter Documentarian

18 May 2018

Hello there everyone. I am thrilled to be the May Documentarian at Winnie&Walter.
I got the chance to worked with them a couple of years ago and I loved it. I had so much fun creating with the stamps and die they sent me.

Today I will be sharing my first project which is a layout. I used The Framed With Evelin T design stamp set and paired it with the Kindness set. I had filmed the whole process but something went wrong when I uploaded my files and I lost them all.  So I'll explain how I created the layout.

I started by stamping the frames and then I added the tree, cactus and leaf shapes. For colour I used alcohol markers and blended different shades together. I choose three tones: pink, grey and green and used black for the stamped images. 

To give the frames some depth and have the impression they pop off the page I added some shadow using a light grey alcohol marker. 

I also added the shadow to the photo to tie all the elements together. 

For my title I picked sentiments and words from the True stamp set. I added a touch of pink with stickers from sticker supply and chose some that would fit in with the layout. 

My layouts are a reflection of me, my feelings and things I would like to say to my loved ones. They aren't always about events or places. Scrapbooking helps me express myself which is sometimes a little difficult as my husband and children only speak French but I my mother tongues are Dutch and English. I miss expressing myself in these languages and crafting has helped me get my words and feelings out on paper. 

A big thank you to Winnie and Walter. I'll have another project lined up next week.
