Old fashioned...

Call me old fashioned, but I don't own any iPad/iPhone/smartphone/etc.
So when your computer is restarting all the time, while it should start, it's time to go to a library to internet *lol*

So I'm here, very old-fashioned, to say I won't update my blog for a while, at least till the 7th January or even later, so my computer can be looked after.

I wanted to thank everyone visiting my blog and wish you a fantastic 2013! May all your dreams and wishes come true.


Noem me maar ouderwets, maar ik bezit geen iPad/iPhone/smartphone/etc.
Dus toen mijn computer afgelopen dagen de gehele tijd opnieuw aan het opstarten was, i.p.v. gewoon opstarten, was het tijd om naar een bieb te gaan om te internetten *lol*

Dus ik ben hier, erg ouderwets, om te zeggen dat ik mijn blog een tijdje niet zal update, in ieder geval tot aan 7 januari, of zelfs later, zodat naar mijn computer gekeken kan worden.

Ik wil graag iedereen bedanken voor het bezoeken van mijn blog en ik wens jullie een geweldig 2013! Dat al jullie dromen en wensen in vervulling mogen gaan.

Kaartenketting: Blauw en zilver

Hi there!

Sorry for my awesome absence the last weeks, but am feeling terribly sick :(
First I had a major pain in the back and wasn't able to move properly (crawling on your knees through your house, just so you don't feel any stings isn't funny and felt really tired from only sitting/lying in my bed/couch and walking... like 5 min. lying down, 5 min. walking, 5 min. sitting and that all day long... terrible!).
And if that wasn't enough I now have a terrible pain in my ear and throat for almost a week now and seems like nothing helps at the moment, so better go to a doctor if this doesn't get any better. Also am talking like a seal at the moment...
So all by all... 3 weeks further... it can't be any more terrible, specially during Christmas.

So I'm really sorry if I haven't responded to any emails etc., but am really tired and really don't feel sitting behind my computer. The first 2 weeks I wasn't even able to sit for 2 minutes, so that's getting better.

I already sceduled this post before getting sick and haven't made a proper card since this one..
Hopefully will be back within a couple of days...

**end of update**

Hi there!

Today I like to show you a card I made for the kleurenkaartenteam.
You are supposed to make a card with blue and silver. Great Christmas/Wintercolors.

Only problem was/is... I don't have any silver paper, so I had to be a bit creative and used my silver embossingpowder.
And the best thing is... this card didn't take me too long to make.
Embossed the edges of my mat under the blue paper with the silver embossingpowder.
Stamped the images, embossed them as well. Punched out the ornaments and put them on the card.

So here you have it...

Thanks so much for coming over and hopefully you have had a fantastic Christmas Day and will have a lovely Boxing Day as well today.

Christmas Challenges {with sketches} #55

Hi there and welcome to another CCWS.

This is our last challenge for this year and a very special one as there's some candy up for grabs at the DT-members' blogs!
Oh yeah... just read on...

We all choose our fave sketch of this year and made a card with it.
I choose sketch #31 as it was my first one I made for the CCWS-DT a couple of months ago and yeah... I still like it!

So here's my take...

Made with one of my fave Christmasstamps... looooooooove my cats!

And here's the little surprise I have for you...

Some patterned papers, embellishments (some more will be added to your prize) and one of my all time fave Magnolia Winterstamps.
Please visit the CCWS-blog for the rules of this challenge and really hope you can join in.

Christmas Cards {with Sketches} #53

Hi there and welcome back...

It's been a while for updating my blog and being online. Busy with all the Sinterklaascelebrations at work.
Today it's time for another CCWS with a twist this time... make a bag!

I hardly have any paperbags, got them (that's 5 of them in totall...) in 3 different sizes... small, bit taller and tall (perfect for a magazine and other stuff).
The small one really was too small for the sketch, the tall one too big and the middle one... uhh... not that perfect, but it will do ;)
Instead of using paperpads, I used some scrapbookpapers from 2005 and yeah... still love my Doodlebugcollection.

Anyways... back to the challenge...

This week we're sponsored by Make it Crafty.

And here's my take on the sketch which you can find at the CCWS-blog.
**sorry for the terrible photo.... but due to all the Sinterklaascelebrations, I left my best camera at work and forgot to bring it with me to take photos... Will try to make a better one later on...**

Thanks so much for coming over and hope to see you around later on.

Every month they have a colorchallenge and this time they're my faves to work with: red and green.
And with these colors and this time of the year, you can't escape from making Christmascards.
I've been playing around with some nice new stuff I received a couple of weeks ago. Am really happy with it!
Made some more CAS-cards with it, as they're one of my fave cards to make.

Dus hierbij dan mijn kaartjes...
And here are my cards...

Hier is de lijst met alle deelnemers van deze uitdaging. Het zijn er heel wat, maar dat maakt het wel zo gezellig en leuk :)

Another Christmascard and back from...

Some serious Christmasshopping in London :)

Oh yeah... finally, after 17 years of going to London almost every year, I finally was there just a couple of weeks before Christmas and was able to see all the gorgeous decorations in all the shops, beautifull Christmaslights in the streets and so much more.
Never been there so short before Christmas and wow... finally been there!
A dream came true these last couple of days :)

So... with me being in the Christmasspirit, here's another Christmascard I like to show you.
Made it with my Speccies, aka Spectrum Noir markers.
Very simple, very CAS, but sooooooo love it!
It's a 4x4" card, so very little.
Love the effect of just an image and sentiment stamp. Keep things focussed on it.

Thanks so much for coming over and hope to see you again later on!

Christmas Cards with Spectrum Noirs

Hi all!

Today I like to show you a very, very CAS-card I made recently with my Speccies aka Spectrum Noir markers.

Stamped the image and only used 3 colors to color the image. Couldn't be any simpler ;)

Scored some lines on the bottom of the card for some effect and added some stickles on top of the tree.

Love this card!

Thanks so much for coming over and hope to see you later on! :)

Spectrum Noir challenge: Flowers

Hi there!

Today I like to show you a card made for the Spectrum Noir challenge: Flowers.
I wanted to keep this card as CAS as possible, by making it a one layer card with some stamps to color on it and think I pretty succeed... I love it!
You can get so much depth by adding an extra dark color to it.

Have you already entered the challenge??
All you have to have on your card are flowers. Stamped or embellishments, but your image has to be colored with the Spectrum Noir markers.

Thanks so much for coming over and hope to see you later on! :)

Hi allemaal,

Ook dit jaar zal ik weer kerstkaartenworkshops bij mij thuis geven na het succes van de afgelopen jaren.
De bedoeling is dat we 4 kerstkaarten zullen maken. 3 in de zogeheten CAS-stijl en de 4e kaart zullen we uitgebreider bekleden en het stempelafdrukje zal worden ingekleurd met de Spectrum Noir markers.

Data: 8, 9, 15 en 16 december

Locatie: Den Haag (uitstekend bereikbaar per OV!! Ik woon echter op de eerste etage, zonder lift)

Tijd: Groep 1: 10.00 - 12.30 en Groep 2: 14.00 - 16.30 (16 december alleen de middaggroep)

Prijs: EUR 15,00 incl. gebruik materialen (uiteraard mag je je eigen gereedschap zoals lijm, snijmat, snijmesje, schaar, etc. meenemen), koffie/thee/fris en iets lekkers erbij.

Er is plek voor 5 personen per groep VOL=VOL

Je kunt je opgeven door een email te sturen naar:
scrapping_angel (at) casema (punt) nl

Kun je nu niet op bovenstaande data, maar je hebt al wel een groepje van 5 personen, dan kunnen we een andere datum plannen. Houdt er echter wel rekening mee dat er parkeerkosten zijn in de wijk waar ik woon tussen 18.00 en 24.00.

Thank you Christmas tag

Hi there,

Today I like to show you a "Thank You" Christmastag.
When I bought the paperpad at a Dutch craftfair I immediately fell in love, but I also had in the back of my mind: "No, no more Christmaspapers this year", but I just couldn't walk by without buying this lovely set.

And yesterday evening I've been extremely creative making loads of stuff which you will see the coming days/weeks.
Haven't been crafty since a few days, totally not in the mood for anything to do with crafting, but my mojo's back :)

Here's today's item...

You can put this label on a bottle of wine etc. Not sure what to do with it right now.

Thank you so much for coming over and hope to see you again later on. Got some news for Dutch people :)
Heb later op de dag wat nieuws voor NL mensen :)

Basic Grey Challenge: Anything goes

Hi there and welcome to another BasicGrey challenge!

Unfortunately this will be my last one as well.
It's with pain in my heart doing it, but it's the right thing at this point.

This fortnight's challenge is "Anything goes", so I created a Halloween card. I just loooooove the combination of green, orange, purple and black!

Colored the image with my Spectrum Noir markers and am sooooo extremely happy with them and their storage!
Had a week off work and sometimes I just sat down looking at all those markers, lovely organized by color *lol*
It really made me happy :)

Anyways... back to my card for the BasicGrey challenge....

And a detailphoto where you can see the glitter I put on Tilda's hair and panty ;)

So... from this place in cyberspace I really want to thank all my teamies at the BasicGrey Challenges!!

**LOVE YOU!!**

And I'd like to thank you for coming over.... THANK YOU!!!

Thank you so much for coming over and hope to see you around later on!

Last Tomic Challenge :(

Hi there!

Right now it's a really sad time, as within a few minutes time the TOMIC Challengeblog will close down :(
Remembers me of February 1996... "And from today... there's no more"...

So sad, but I did try to make a last card for this challenge, a Halloweenone.
Totally love this one!

Off course I colored the image with my Spectrum Noir markers and wow... I totally love their newest storing system! You really should see and have it!!

Anyways...back to topic... here's my card:

Thanks so much for coming over and hope to see you around later on. Thanks! :)

ABC Challenge: Z for Zoo

Hi there and welcome to another ABC Challengeblog challenge!

This time we're at the end of the alphabet, the Z for Zoo.

Made this card for my stash as I've got some people to send birthcards to and there are also people buying my cards, so I really need some when needed :)

Anyways... back to the card... kept it really CAS, but I sooooooooo love this one :)

With this card ending the alphabet, I'm also ending my DT-membership for this challengeblog.
All good things come to an end and I really enjoyed being a part of this fantastic team, but I've decided to step down.
It was a hard decision to make, but I know it's the right decision.
But I will defenately be around the ABC Challengeblog, as I always have loved the challenges and they kept me inspired in all kinda ways.

A big thank you to all my teammates!


And have you seen the DT-call that's up at the moment?? Go check out the ABC Challengeblog for more info and maybe it's you who will be a DT-member :)

Thank you so much for coming over and hope to see you around later on.

Spectrum Noir tag and great news!!

Hi there!

Today I like to show you a tag I made recently for the Spectrum Noir blog.
You can work with the Speccies so easily in combination with your stencils!

So here's what I made, you can see the step-by-step instructions on the Spectrum Noir blog:

Vandaag wil ik jullie een tag laten zien die ik voor het Spectrum Noir blog gemaakt heb.
Je kunt namelijk supergoed je Speccies combineren met je stencils (en die van mij konden wel een gebruikersbeurt krijgen..haha)
Dit heb ik gemaakt, je kunt de stap-voor-stap uitleg op het Spectrum Noir blog bekijken:

And I told you about some news about storing your Speccies.
Well... about 1,5 week ago I received the best ever storingsystem I've ever seen (and believe me, I've seen a lot) and totally love!
The Spectrum Noir markers have their own storingsystem (which, you can use for other markers as well!!) and I just loooooooooooooooooove it!
It's on my desk and it really works! All numbers on their correct place!
There's a blogspot about it on the Spectrum Noir blog as well from Jennie *Hi Jennie!!*. Stores in The Netherlands will also be selling this system in the future *whoowhoo!*

En ik heb al een tikje van de sluier afgelopen week opgelicht over het geweldige nieuws dat er iets nieuws aankomt voor de Speccies.
Wel... ongeveer 1,5 week geleden, ontving ik het beste opbergsysteem voor markers wat ik ooit gezien heb (en geloof me.. ik heb genoeg gezien!) en vind het dé oplossing voor markers!
De Spectrum Noir markers hebben nu hun eigen opbergsysteem (dat je overigens ook prima voor andere markers etc. kunt gebruiken) en ik ben er helemaal van onder de indruk! Dit is echt zo super opbergen!
Het staat nu op mijn bureau en het werkt echt superhandig. Alle nummers op volgorde, ideaal!
Er is een blogspot te vinden op het Spectrum Noir blog van Jennie *Hi Jennie!!*.
Winkels hier in Nederland zullen dit systeem vast en zeker ook gaan verkopen, want dit is iets waar ik al jaren naar op zoek was *whoowhoo!*
