Sinds een jaar of 2-3 volg ik af en toe eens een bloemschikles. Afgelopen maandag was het weer zo ver. We maakten deze keer een grafstuk.
Mijn eerste lessen gingen nogal moeizaam, ik zat dan ook in een klas met doorwinterde bloemschikkers met 10-tallen jaren ervaring. Ik kende al die technieken nog niet en werkte heel traag zodat ik meestal nog maar halfweg zat als de anderen al vertrokken. Over mijn resultaat was ik ook nooit 100% tevreden. Maar deze avond was het voor de eerste keer anders. Ik was goed op tijd klaar en mijn bloemstuk mag er best zijn (al zeg ik het zelf).

Friday Sketcher Week 23

It was such a great sketch this week. I love the half circles on both sides! I didn't put the ribbon on my card because I tought it was already busy enough for me.

New Challenge Blog

Karin has put up a new great challenge blog. Every Monday she'll post a sketch you can use for a christmas- and/or birthdaycard. At the end of each month one winner will receive a small prize.

This is my card for the first sketch. I used Basic Grey paper (Figgy), Magnolia and Penny Black (sentiment) stamps.

WCMD: Shape Challenge

"Please make anything shape but a square card!"

A quick one 'cause this great weekend is running to an end here in Belgium.
I used Magnolia stamp and my nesabilities to cut the (scalloped) circle.

WCMD: Christmas is on it's way Challenge


This challenge is to create a Christmas card. Perfect 'cause I'm really into Christmas cards lately.
For this one I used Penny Black stamp, American Crafts Elements ribbon and just cardstock.

WCMD: Watcha doin' cupcake?

This challenge sounds: 'create a card using a cupcake of some description'.
So it was the perfect occasion to use this stamp for the first time, although I already have it several months.

For this card I used: Imaginisce stamp, Basic Grey patterned paper and American Crafts Elements ribbon.

WCMD Challenge Card & Tag


I started cardmaking exactly one year ago on World Card Making Day. To celebrate this I kept today free and wanted to create a lot. It's not really going as planned because I seem to have lost my inspiration. I finally finished my first challenge: create a card and matching gift tag. I used stamps from Hero Arts.

SOF :: Cuttlebug Challenge


A fun challenge to use your Cuttlebug in some way along with stamping. I've also used one of Katharina's great sketches for this one (http://katharina1704.blogspot.com/2008/04/tilda-with-roses.html)

Gina K Designs' s release party

Yesterday I've made a card for Gina K Designs's release party challenge # 1 on Splitcoaststampers. Unfortunately I don't have any Gina K stamps, so I had to use another one.
