Magnolia Summerbox

Today I gave myself a day off. Just a few washes and for the rest I really enjoyed myself making this project (and some more cards...)
Had this idea when I was shopping with my dad for a new bedroom closet and saw this box.
Will make these for every season. Just so loved making it!
Have to put a nice photo in there instead of the stamped image I think.

Anyways... back to the item....
Here's a close-up of Surfer Tilda. Love this stamp a lot! It's so versitle! You can use it on cards, and, altered items, like this box.
Coloured her with my Copics. Just love, love, love them!!

And what's a summer without seashells... so they defenately needed to be in my box.

And here's the Summerbox I made today... Love the shells and other Summer-items a lot.

And another detail... Surfer Edwin :)

Halloween Copic card

Yeah... Finally I'm used to my Copics. Still difficult to find the right colours for shadowing etc., but think I did a pretty good job on this card...
Practiced a lot, got a lot of papers in the garbagetin... but... I'm going to like them a lot!! Such a bright colours, so vibrant.
Used the same sketch as yesterday's Christmascard. Just loved working with it.

Here's a close-up...
And yes, I noticed the outlined brown after I saw it on my computer. But hee... it's handmade ;)

Yesterday I went scrapsjopping with my mother.
Had a all-day trainticket left, got the journey planned (very strict timeplanning I can tell *lol*) and went to 3 scrapbookstores in the east/middle of The Netherlands.

This is what I bought in the first store:

The newest Imaginisce Christmasline (just loooooooooove it!!) with 2 of their stamps, some Kaisercraft, DreamStreet etc. etc. and a Martha Stewart stars-punch.

Ok, shop number 2...

Again lovely items. As this was more of an artist stampingstore, I really enjoyed myself watching all those wonderfull created items. Could have been there for a long time, but we had a strict timeplanning, otherwise we couldn't be in the last store :)
And this is what I bought in the last store...

My Mind's Eye Christmaspapers. Bought both their newest Christmaslines. Soooooooo gorgeous!!
Also bought some other MME's papers (Halloween), other papers, some rub-ons for making cards and some fabrics.
Have been creating some cards with the Christmaslines already and just love them!!! Will show them soon.

Thanks for visiting again :)
