Some new goodies!!

Oh... I just love my new goodies.
This week I received a letter from the mailman my box was delivered at my neighbour's. Only one little problem: he didn't write down which one, so I asked 5 neighbours, but none of them recieved my package :(
So I phoned the office this Friday to ask if they knew where my package was, and they told me it was at the postoffice... **grrrrrrrrr**

So yesterday I finally had time to go there and just look at my new goodies:
I just love Stampin'Up!!
Bought some ribbonholders, more ribbon (who can live without it?? not me!!) and 3 punches.

Will make some with it this evening. Can't wait!!

Stupid me...

Let me just tell you how stupid I've been yesterday...
I totally forgot to take photos of the items I made!!!
I will ask Tessa if she can make some, so I can put them overhere on my blog.

Coming back to my blogcandy.... none of you guessed it right what I showed you :(
I altered a Maya-road tin with some Ranger distress crackle, put some Sandylion stickers on it, a bit of ribbon and what you saw are the 3 Prima flowers on top of the tin.
Inside the tin are handmade cards made with the new Kelli Penacci-line of papers.
Here you can see the tin with one of the cards... though it's a sneak as well...sorry **oops**

Yesterday I've been to a forumday at Tessa's. It was a blast. Really met cool people and we were pampered a whole day long.
Made 2 cakes and didn't need to bring leftovers home, as there weren't any :)
Here are some photos of yesterday.... enjoy!

Just a sneak

Of a project I've just created for Tessa Tegendraads. Will bring it with me this Saturday as they've a forumday where we all meet each other in person. Really looking forward to it.
I know some people who are coming, but most of them I only know from the forum.

So here's the little sneak...

If you know what I made... please leave a comment and maybe there's even some blogcandy to win ;)
I tell you it will probably not be easy to guess it, but who knows...
I will show the whole project this Saturday, so you have time to comment until Saturday 7.30 am (European time = GMT + 1 hour) and I will pick a winner 7.35 am (European time = GMT +1 hour), just in time before I leave for the forumday.

Changes haven't stopped this week, big changes are probably coming within 2 weeks time... well... what can I say...hehe... just nothing about it really :)
Will update about it soon :)
Will also show you a sneak Saturdaymorning of another project I made for Tessa. Will also bring that one with me, so I've been pretty busy scrapping and I love it!!
I'm so glad my mojo came back with SAG, it's so much fun to create things again like the old days ;)

Goodies and cards

Been to Tessa Tegendraads yesterday to give a staralbum-workshop and as always, I couldn't resist the lovely goodies!!
Bought some new papers of Daisy D's and Sandylion. Also bought some maskingtape, EZ mount and a paintdabber. Can't wait to create something with it!!

And look what I got from Tessa for joining their team!
Can you imagine going to work with all those incredible goodies???
I sure can!!
Got the newest lines of Kelly Penacci and Sandylion with some cool embellishments from the same "Artsy" and "Girl"-line. Also got some Maya Road chipboardshapes, Junkitz jumprings, purple Stickles, purple ribbon and some awesome Prima flowers!!
Also got great Kelly Penacci-stamps and a Making Memories paint effects kit for the workshop. Love all the goodies!!
These photos aren't uploading the way they should be... have to find out why...

Also made 2 cards recently...
This one is for my uncle (one of the many..hehe). He celebrated his birthday yesterday.

Since today I'm a proud member of....

You can't imagine how honoured I am being asked to join their team of designers!

Did a workshop today at Tessa Tegendraads, a staralbum, went very well, enjoyed myself a lot and all of the attendees left with a good vibe, feeling really proud of what they did (they have to finish their album though... only the layouts though) and they were really proud of themselves as well and even bought more paper to make another album at home!

Will give an update tomorrow **jumping from joy**

Show me some...


Yes, here are the cards I made recently and gave you a sneak preview from in my last post.
They were very simple to make, but I really loved making them and I think things don't always have to be overwhelming.

This is the card I made for an old friend who's getting married Friday 13th June, so that's tomorrow. Hope she'll have so much better weather than today, as she deserves a sunshiney day!!

Stamp: Stampingbella, cardstock: Bazzill, patterned paper: PaperSalon, ribbon: Stampin'Up, ink: colorbox, pencils: Derwent coloursoft, glitter: stickels/Ranger

Made this card about 6 times. Just to thank some familymembers for collecting seals for some forks, knives and spoons.

Stamps: Penny Black (frog) and Hero Arts (sentiment), cardstock: ClubScrap, pen: ZIG, pencils: Derwent

Wanted to finish my apron this afternoon, but something of the sewingmachine broke, so me and my mother needed to buy that thing. Luckily the sewingstore had it, so we bought it and went back to my place.
My father installed the item and I was able to sew again.
I think my apron is looking really cool. I wore it last weekend at Scrap-a-Ganza and people recognized me easily. Even some teachers did.
I was having a workshop from Melodee Saturday-evening and also last Monday-afternoon. She saw me this Monday and asked me where my apron was!!
So funny to notice people are going to recognize me by this thing, and I must say it's a really "ME"-apron. Just love it and my hands also love it..hehe
When my hands are dirty, I just clean them on my apron... very handy indeed!! Will show you mine when totally finished. I was able to wear it at SAG, but it wasn't totally finished back then...

Feedback is always welcome....*LOL*

Getting my mojo back

Finally I found my mojo again during this weekend at Scrap-a-Ganza.
Started Friday-evening with some classes of CD Muckosky. I really didn't feel like scrapping about over a month, but during these classes my mojo came back and on Saturday-morning I finally thought scrapping was fun again :)
You can't imagine how happy I am this finally happened!

Followed loads of cool workshops this weekend, like the ones of CD (specially liked the albumtrack with loads of great techniques!), Donna Downey (it's really easy to make a great album!! Quick and simple!), Dyan, Melodee, Jen and the Making Memories workshop.
Really enjoyed talking to loads of people who I've met before and met online the last couple of weeks.

But I must say I really didn't like the food at all!!
Breakfast was great, we got a great buffet, but during lunch there were small sandwiches and some soup, but I really didn't like the bread at all.
And dinner was awfull!! I know I don't like all the food, but this was really strange, as there was an Italian buffet and the only thing I ate was pizza (which I can get at the local supermarket for EUR 2,00) and I so didn't like it!! And I heard the complaint from more people there.
Breakfast on Sunday was great!! But lunch... uhhmmm.... everything but great!!

There were also a lot of things missing from the organisation-side and I'm not sure I will ever come here if service and food will not change as I pay a lot of money to be here.
Well... just wait and see eh?!

This Tuesday I've made some "thank you"-cards for family and friends as they send me some counters/stamps for forks, knives and spoons to get at a supermarket.

Also made a card for an old friend of mine who's getting married this Friday.
Will show you some details of the cards and will show the whole cards Thursday as I will send them today and don't wanna spoil it *lol*

Anyways... here they are....

I also met two lovely ladies, one from Norway and one from Sweden during SAG.
They brought me some really cool Hanglar & Stanglar stamps as I can't order them overhere or online, so I'm so really, really, happy with these ones!!! Can't wait to make some awesome cards with them!! Here's a photo of my stamps. Really so love them!!

Thanks for watching my blog...
