winter page

Hi all!
A page about me for a change!
Hubby took this photo when we were walking in the snow some weeks ago.
It was very cold but we were so enjoying the scenery and the sun.

The nameplate is from Dusty Attic.
This nameplate is a bit different from the last one I did.
For a tutorial, see the left side of this blog.
Papers are from Prima.
And some details:

For this nameplate I used two layers of the DA chippie.
Added some color, glitter and puffy paint.

Have a great scrappy day!

little gift box

Hi there!
Today I want to share this little wooden gift box. Made it for a special dear scrapfriend.
This sweet lady lives in Australia, so this box had a long flight across the sea!

Used Pion papers and Dusty Attic flourish corners.

Have a great day!

precious moments

Hi there!
I was asked to make a black and white layout for my daughter's friend, Michelle.
It's been a while since I had made a b/w one but I really had a lot of fun making this LO!
The photo is of her and her little girl, Novelle.
She is such a cutie!
This page will be framed in a white painted frame.

Used some Bo Bunny papers and some chipboard I had in my stash forever.
The flowers were handmade from fabric and lace.
Doodled around the photo and papers.
Here are some details:

Enjoy your week!

layout with tutorial

Hi all!
Today a white page with a little touch of my fav color, turquoise.
Photo is of my sweet girl, Yiscka.
Also a tutorial of how to make the rolled nameplate.

Started the page with misting the background.
Made the yarn flowers and did some stitching.
The nameplate is from the -soon-to-be-released- chippie of Dusty Attic.
Here are some details and the tutorial for the altered nameplate.

And here the tutorial:
This is what you need.
Isn't the mini mister of Dusty Attic the cutest?!!!!!

Spray the nameplate chippie with a lot of water.
Let it soak for a few minutes.

When totally soaked with water, you can peel it into three pieces.

Cut two of them in half.

Roll them while they are still wet.

Let them dry.

Glue all the pieces together like this.

Paint the chippie with gesso.
Now you have a good basic coating and it's ready to be altered as you wish.

Kept mine very simple to fit the page.
Only inked the edges and added two brads.

That's it for today.
Have a super weekend!

sugar and spice

Today a layout of my girls. They are so totally different, but oh so loved!

The flourish is one of the soon-to-be-released chippie from Dusty Attic.
Also the little key and keyhole are new ones.
Again I misted the background and did some stitching.
The border is painted with gesso.
Here are some details:

The flourisch was painted with gesso, added with some micro beads while the paint was still wet.
Inked the edges for the finishing touch.

For the flowers I used some puffy paint.
 To match the metal round charm with the page, I used two colors of embossing powder.

Aren't that little key and keyhole the cutest?!
Painted them with gesso and inked the edges.

Have a fun, great and creative day!

wooden book box

Today I want to share a wooden book box I made. 
Since my girls were little, they give me sweet little notes.
Now they are older it's not that often any more, but sometimes they still surprise me 
with their writings.
This box was made to keep those little treasures.

Painted the chippies with gesso and used some ink to give the book an old look.
The name plate and the mini Fleur de Lis are some of the new releases from Dusty Attic.
I found that gorgeous white frame at a local home decor store.
Papers are from Pion Designs.

Greetings from a very cold and white Holland! (lots of snow today!)
Have a great scrappy weekend!
Hugs, Ingrid xxx
