Guest designer Els Brigé Design

Last week I was guest designer at Els Brige's blog and of course I have to show my cards here as well.

I created two cards. The first one is made with a wood texture paper of simple stories, leaves made with dies from MFT (a birthday present from Rhodé, thanks!) and circle dies with a stitched line (also from MFT). For the sentiment I used the "'t Is je verjaardag" set.

I am a fan of Papertrey Ink. Lovely designs and good quality. Howerver, the sentiments are in English and not every Dutch person loves English sentiments on a card. So, I am very happy with Els' stamps with their beautiful fonts.The next card is made with Papertrey Ink's 'Floral Sketches'. For the sentiment I used the "'t Is je verjaardag" set. I also used "warme wensen", which actually is a christmas set, but also usable for other occasion.  I stamped a background with two stamps for the latter set. 

Thanks for hopping by and have a lovely weekend!

Scrap quilt

My study and work were not the only reason why I didn't create that many cards as I used to make. I worked on a secret project as well :). Yesterday our youngest niece was born and I made her a quilt. I used reproduction 30's fabrics and the result is a colourful scrap quilt. A lot of work but the result makes worth all the effort!

Enjoy your weekend!

Last week Rhodé came over for a card making date. She brought the SU Watercolor Wings set. What a great set it is. I made a bunch of cards with the set in blues and one grey colour. I used a sentiment from Papertrey Ink.

And finally I made one in reds. With the red one I'd like to participate in the current k&k challenge - one layer card

Thanks for hopping by!
