Webster`s Pages & Unity Stamp Co. SWAP

Hi there!
We have a fun week at Webster`s Pages blog this week. We teamed up with Unity Stamp Co. ...YAY!
Be sure to visit Webster`s Pages Blog to see what the DT created and of course for a chance to win some amazing prizes.

As a crafter who stamps regularly I was on top of the world when I heard that Webster`s Pages releases 9 *NEW* unmounted stamps for their latest and so gorgeous collection "Girl Land". I have a few now and they are so beautiful and the most important very useful :-)

I created this layout using two of the stamps - "Fun Burst Background" and "Tea Cup Tag". The layout is based on white card stock which was "transformed" into light blue one ;-). I used Glimmer Mist "Sea Glass" color.
{Girl Land} Paper collection
{Girl Land} Journaling cards
{Girl Land} Perfect Accents 
{Girl Land} Word Block Stickers
{Girl Land} Alphabet Stickers
{Girl Land} Tutu Card
*NEW*{Girl Land} Tea Cup Tag unmounted stamp

I hope you enjoyed my project today! Don`t forget to leave a comment at Webster`s Pages Blog {HERE}  - who knows maybe YOU will be ONE of the LUCKY winners! 
Have a creative day!

She Loves Flowers GDT ~Colorful Creations~

Hi there! can`t imagine how beautiful the weather is here in The Netherlands. It`s been sunny, warm and my family & I have been enjoying every single day! It doesn`t happen often to have such nice weather.
Now, about today`s layout. I was invited to guest-design for Colorful Creations and I had to create a layout based on a sketch. It`s an awesome sketch so it wasn`t difficult to create a layout.

  • I didn`t use any patterns papers to created this layout.....
  • The netting you see behind the photo is from Webster`s Pages...

  • I stamped the butterflies with Sizzix Die/Stamp set and colored them in with Copic Markers...

  • The little butterfly is also from the Sizzix Die/Stamp set but this time I colored it in differently. I used again Copic Markers....

Scent of a woman ~The Scrap Cake~

Hi there!
It`s a Women`s week at The Scrap Cake blog. It made me think a lot what to scrap about because there are so many things involved in our lives as women. Anyway, I decided to scrap about perfumes as a daily part of my life.
As an amateur photographer I`m often attracted by colors and shapes of things. This perfume got my attention by its colors and I thought I`d scrap it in combination with the awesome "One Moment in Time" collection.

{Crafty Secrets Creative Scraps} - Mini Vintage

And a few close-ups.....

Have a beautiful day!
