Embellish it! and Demonstration

2017 is here and i started this year with my Project Life workshop Embellish It! It was such a fun day and the ladies made some beautiful projects. We made two different layouts with techniques to make our own embellishments.
Very proud of my pretty white studio. I can find anything i need in there. On my Facebook page i have a live video from my studio, if you would like to see it. www.facebook.com/fauvevanmaanen
I have an article in the new Hobbyhandig magazine about marbling. Check it out! It is a really fun technique and the magazine is full of cool DIY projects.
Here are some sneaks of a few layouts i made recently. They will be published in the Australian magazine Scrapbook Memories. I cannot wait to see them!
This Saturday the 28th of January, i was invited for a Project Life demonstration at Noor Design in Waspik. I will share and show you more about Project Life and the fun new WRMK Frame Punch Board. Do i see you there?

Project Life Stempelen:
Heb jij ook zoveel stempels? En gebruik je ze niet vaak genoeg? Ik ga je tijdens deze workshop laten zien hoe je jou eigen hippe kaartjes kunt maken met stempels. We gaan achtergrond kaartjes maken, titels stempelen, stempelen in lagen, stempels mixen en nog veel meer. Ook krijg je tijdens deze workshop een uitgebreide uitleg over de verschillende soorten inkt en waar deze het best voor geschikt zijn! Je maakt tijdens deze workshop 2 complete 12x12 inch pagina's.

Sunday Crop:
Een hele dag gezellig samen creatief zijn en ideeën uitwisselen in mijn studio. Ook kun je tijdens deze crop de materialen in mijn studio gebruiken zoals de Fuse, Minc, ponsen en meer! Deze crop duurt van 10.00 tot 16.00 en is inclusief lunch, drinken en iets lekkers. De kosten voor deze crop zijn €10,00 en aan het eind krijgt iedereen nog wat leuks mee naar huis van een bekend Scrapbook merk.

Project Life Fusen:
Veel mensen hebben de Fuse ongebruikt in een lade liggen. Zonde! Misschien was je eerste ervaring met de Fuse geen succes of ben je er gewoon nog niet aan toegekomen... Maar ik zal ervoor zorgen dat de Fuse bovenaan jouw verlanglijstje staat aan het einde van deze workshop! Tijdens deze workshop zullen wij vormen fusen, eigen indelingen maken, een shaker frame maken en nog veel meer. Ook krijg je een uitleg over het werken met stansen, de verschillende opzetstukken en Fuse ondergronden. Je maakt tijdens deze workshop 2 complete 12x12 inch pagina's.

Scrapbooking in lagen:
Mijn grote liefde is en blijft toch Scrapbooking in lagen op 12x12 formaat. 12 jaar geleden ben ik deze hobby begonnen toen ik aan de slag ging met mijn baby album voor Julian. En tot de dag van vandaag heb ik er nog steeds plezier in! In deze workshop wil ik mijn enthousiasme voor deze hobby delen en laat ik je verschillende technieken zien over het werken in lagen. De mogelijkheden met papier zijn eindeloos! Ik leer je hoe je kunt beginnen op 12x12 inch formaat zonder dat dit te overweldigend is. We gaan aan de slag met de pagina indeling en hoe je jouw foto kunt benadrukken op je layout. Je maakt tijdens deze workshop 1 complete 12x12 inch layout.

Project Life Sinterklaas:
Ben jij net als mij een echte paparazzi en maak jij ook zoveel foto's met Sinterklaas? Neem je mooiste foto's dan mee en maak een geweldig  verslag over pakjesavond, de intocht en al het leuks wat komt kijken bij Sinterklaas. Wij gaan aan de slag met een geweldige Sinterklaas kit en maken tijdens deze workshop een leuke pocket, slinger, banner en meer. Na afloop zul je naar huis gaan met twee complete en feestelijke 12x12 pagina's.

Mixed Media met Gelatos:
Gelatos zijn geen ijsjes maar een soort krijtjes van Faber Castell in prachtige kleurtjes. Deze unieke krijtjes kunnen gebruikt worden om  pasta's, watercolors en sprays te maken. Tijdens deze workshop gaan wij aan de slag met stencils, embossing folders, stempels en meer om verschillende effecten te creeëren. Na afloop ga je naar huis met een complete 12x12 pagina.

Project Life cut it out:
Wil jij net even wat anders? Iets unieks  toevoegen aan je pagina's? Dan is dit de workshop voor jou! Tijdens deze workshop draait het allemaal om het uitsnijden van papier. Opengewerkte kaartjes? Yes Please! We gaan aan de slag met dies, ponsen, mesjes, scharen, vellum en papier om onze saaie kaartjes tot leven te wekken. Denk aan geometrische vormen, hashtag, frames en nog veel meer leuke vormen om uit te snijden. Je maakt tijdens deze workshop 2 complete 12x12 inch pagina's.

Project Life DIY:
DIY/Do it yourself zegt het al een beetje. Tijdens deze workshop gaan we ons richten op het zelf maken van onze materialen. De kaartjes, embellishments en titels gaan wij zelf maken en/of versieren. Iedereen kan een stickervel kopen, maar het is toch veel leuker om je eigen stickers te maken? Dit en meer leuke technieken komen allemaal aan bod tijdens deze creatieve en "out of the box" Project Life workshop. Na afloop ga je naar huis met 2 complete 12x12 inch pagina's.

Project Life Embellish it:
Ik ben dol op embellishments. Al die leuke stickers, enamel dots en tapes wil ik allemaal hebben. Hou jij er ook van om je pagina's aan te kleden? In deze workshop gaan wij dies, stempels en markers gebruiken om onze eigen embellishments te maken. In combinatie met gekochte embellishments zullen wij onze  pagina's op een mooie en stijlvolle manier versieren. Tijdens deze workshop zul je 2 complete 12x12 inch pagina's maken.

Paper Passion part 2

How is it that sometimes it feels like life is going fast forward? It freaks me out, because i always feel like i am missing stuff. Which i probably am ha!

I wanted to share some more stuff from the Paper Passion event. It was so amazing and i have such great memories! The standowners were so nice and the overall vibe was just so happy and relaxed.

De beursorganisatie asked me if i was willing to vlog a live Facebook video on the Paper Passiom event, it was crazy! Never vlogged before but it was so funny. Ofcourse without no experience i messed it up big time with no sound and at a wrong angle untill i got it "right".

My workshop students were such a delight! They were so easygoing and creative. Big shout out to them! These were the projects we made at the workshops.


Ofcourse i have to share a few photos from my workshops, everyone gave it a twist of their own and we all ended up with different pages.

My booth was very busy and people had such kind words about my projects. Thanks to everyone who visited my booth and came by to have a little chat. You made this event so much more amazing for me! Hope to see you at the Paper Passion next year!

Paper Passion part 1

This past weekend the Paper Passion event took place in Tilburg, The Netherlands. What an amazing experience! I had my own stand in mint and pink, decorated with gold polkadots and donuts! Everyone that knows me, knows i am a huge lover of donuts. They look adorable and are yummy too! My flyer for the new studio has donuts on the front with my name written in gold letters. So pretty! That is why i wanted to stick to the donut them in my booth. I received some amazing wall stickers in gold polka-dots and pink donuts by Perfect Little Touch. Be sure to check those out, the quality is amazing!


So proud of the way my stand looked, i received such nice feedback on the overall look. it's nice when something turns out the way you want it to be.

I met so many nice creative people on the event, and the vibe was just perfect. Everyone was happy and excited to be there! The people who attended my workshop were very sweet and such great learners, i really love sharing my creativity!

With Femke from Fotoboekcreatie. Our vlog was such a blast!


Finally a selfie with this cutie! Karin-Joan is such a sweetheart :)

On Thursday i teached a workshop Christmas Delight where we played with the Fuse tool. I love this page protector with the 9 large squares. We fused the middle and created a shaker pocket with little stars. We used Hero Arts stamps and Tonic Studios dies to create this layout.



 Monkey Coffee has the most delicious donuts in Tilburg! They have a little store on the Pieter Vredeplein in Tilburg. They gave me these donuts as a treat during my workshop. :)
 Did you visit Paper Passion? I bet you had an amazing time! I will post some more pictures tomorrow. :) Happy Scrapping!

Lazy days

I am having a VERY lazy week. The kids started school again last Monday, and i still have to get used to the whole routine thing...And with that i mean getting up early and get dressed. You know actually something besides scrapbook in my pyjama all day, while the kids play on their computers, watch Netflix and play Basketball.

A few weeks ago, i was busy reorganizing my Scrapbook stash, so i could actually find the supplies i needed. My desk is a mess, like always...24/7. Is that just me? It's a dumping ground for anything paper related. I see so many beautiful studios, with minimal amounts of supplies and decorations. I am not sure if the hoarder in me will ever succeed at that. But here is to hoping! I am thinking about switching to white furniture. The dark wood is really warm, but i am ready for a more clean look to go with my mint storage items and gold accessories. Here are a few sneaks from Studio. The wire bakset is from Action and the large plastic divider boxes are from Hema. They are huge and perfect for storing all of my little embellishments. 


Speaking of mint and gold...Have you seen the new Crate Paper storage products? Wow! I will need them all...Super cute, and beautiful colors. What is your favorite? Mine is the gold rack and the 12x12 storage for paper, chipboard or stickers... I think Scrapbookers spend just as much time and money on reorganizing, as they do on actual Scrapbooking ha! But hey, it is part of the process and as long as you enjoy it, it's a win win situation.



Here are two of my favorite layouts i havn't showed here before. It is using the Crate Paper Confetti line. My absolute favorite collection EVER! The 'big smile' layout was published in JOT magazine, which is an amazing magazine full of inspiration and great projects!


Another project that i am working on and completely loving is my new planner. I love it! I started using a Happy Planner last July and it is an amazing planner with loads of space to decorate. I am using it as a Memory Planner with pictures and such to remember everything that happened this year. How gorgeous is this design?


What are your tricks to keep up with your planner? Let me know! xoxo Fauve

Holding on to Summer

Besides Spring, nothing can beat Summer! The weather, the clothes and the nice food. Who knows me, will know that i love a good picnic or barbeque. Shocking that we have only enjoyed one picnic and no barbeque this year. Hoping to squeeze in another picnic this weekend, the weather is going to be perfect.

Here is a Project Life page i made using the pictures from our trip to the beach @ speelland Beekse Bergen. Loving these fresh colors from the Happy Place collection by Dear Lizzy. Ofcourse our trip wouldn't be complete without some adventure, so we had to go to the First Aid because of a bleeding toe and a cut in the belly. Maxim bumped his toe against a stone in the water and scratched his belly open by a stick in the water. What are the odds? haha Luckily he was fine, but it did leave a big scar on his belly. :(

Here is my layout with the new Take me Away collection from Pink Paislee by Paige Evans. Love these beautiful colors, anything pastel fits right up my alley. I am ready for a new adventure, that's why i went for a layout that reminds me about taking risks and adventures,
It is official, i am 30! I dreaded the age for years, thinking my life needed to be perfect when i reached this age. I realised there is no such thing as perfect, and i don't need societies standards in my life. I can make my own standards, and live 30 to the fullest and feel blessed with what i have.

Last Sunday i decided to do a little DIY. After browsing Pinterest, i found someone who spray painted her typewriter and i loved the result. She used a pastel Pink color, but i only had Gold spray paint so that's what i used. I removed the metal top cover from my typewriter, cleaned it and spray painted it gold. It only had to dry for 20 minutes or so, and i was looking at a "brand new" gold typewriter. It looked very boring before, so i really love the way it looks now. I accept it's presence in my craft space now haha.


Do you have a great DIY project you are working on? I would love to see it, please share.
Happy Scrapping, Fauve

Andy Skinner challenge

I love the style of Andy Skinner, the grunge industrial look is totally my thing. You wouldn't say so when you look at the baby pages in my last post but it is true.

Andy is hosting a challenge in a bright and colorful theme and here is my entry.

Here are some detail shots.




I was going for a Mermaid abstract look.

Thanks for stopping by!
