Hey everyone,

I had a really creative day today!
After doing some shopping, I had the whole day to myself.
So, I decided to make some flowers that I can use later on a mini album, a card,...
I have tried some new techniques, some of them worked out just fine, others will need some practice ;-)
Thank you SaCrafters for your wonderful tutorial! You really inspired me!
Please check her out, she is so talented : and
So here are some photo's of some of the things I made today:

Very first mini album!

I finally finished my very first mini album!

It is very basic if I compare it with all those wonderful albums I see out there, but there is room for improvement ;-)

I only have been scrapping for a couple of weeks now, so I don't have a lot of material yet.
I don't have any inks, so I wasn't able to distress the edges, I hope to buy some very soon.
I didn't have any cutouts, punch, lace, ...
I had to be very creative making almost all the embellishments myself.
For for example:
I don't have any flowers yet, so I had to make them all myself.
Luckily there are some great tutorials on youtube to help me how to make them and help me find some inspiration.
I have cut down and painted some old curtains and tablecloths for fabric, recycled used paper,... :p

I really love the beautiful things you're all making!
Most off what I know comes from :

LuvLee Scrappin : Leanne, you are the reason I started making a mini album, You have learnt me so much! thank you so much!

Tracys Treasures : I have watched all your video's! You have inspired me at so many levels! Thank you so much Tracy!

♥My Passion for Paper♥ : Leonie, you are so talented! thank you for letting uw enjoy the wonderful things you make! 

Thank you so much you all!
I definitely have found myself a new hobby!

If I found the courage, I will post some photo's of the inside soon.... ;-)

See you all soon...

yesterday my daughter came home from school with a self-made gift.
She had made me a pin board in art class.
She had painted it beige and had decoupage some hearts on it.
Finally she had connected some elastic cord on it so I can put photo's on it.

I really Love it!
Not only did she made it with lots of love for me, she did a great job!
I will hang it up above my desk and put some photo's and cards of her and her sister on it.

Thank You so much honey!

Hello All Out There!


I have been doubting for a while now.
I really don't know if anybody is going to read my blog, but we will see...

Lets start to introduce myself:
Due to some health problems I am forced to be a stay at home mom to my 2 lovely teenage daughters.
They are 15 and 13 years old.
I have a wonderful husband who always was (and is) very supportive to all I was (am) doing.

Sinds I have lots of free time now, I have restart an old hobby: Crafting.
I like all sorts of crafting, but mainly I make some jewelry with all kind of pearls and I love scrapbooking and mixed media.
Those 2 last ones are fairly new to me, so I still have to learn a lot about making some masterpieces ;-)
Lucky for me, there are lots of wonderful people out here who inspire me endlessly.

As I am a beginner and don't have lots of material to work with, I have to be double creative.
I love searching for a low budget solution for all the material I don't have yet, but need to make a uniek piece of art.

My plan is to come here a least ones a week and keep you posted on everything I have been working on and hopefully I will be able to inspire one of you aswel.

Now last but not least, I'm from Belgium, so my English isn't that good and I will make some mistakes every ones in a while. I hope this blog will help me to improve my English.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask, I will be more than happy to anser them.

See you soon,
