Let's Hang out and Celebrate!

Not celebrating fall,because i can't stand this cold rainy weather...But this layout is about celebrating friendship!I love the feeling you get from a girls night(or day!)Just stepping out of the whole mommy routine stuff.Time to breath and enjoy watching chick flicks and such.Perfect time to celebrate with some Desperado's and snacks ;)Almost everything here is Crafty Secrets products.My favorite thing about Crafty Secrets is all these fantastic images.I mean come on...A pin-up butterfly??A girl who burns here clothes ironing,while talking on the phone??(Reminds me of burning my boyfriends carpet back in high school)And all these other Vintage images that i Love so much.So so cool!I used the Let's Hang out set for the cute girl on the phone and the Let's Hang out and Celebrate stamp!On the Creating with Vintage Patterns are a lot of great papers,but i also enjoy using all of these great embellishments like this cute flower.I Love going Hybrid.Love that word too,makes me think of Vampire Diaries!Maybe i am a Vampire and Werewolf in one,lol!
I had lot's of fun with Glimmer Mist and the lovely new stamps here.I used the Artsy Banners set for the garland and the Lacey Patterns set for the background design.
Even though i do not like Fall,i am a sucker for the warm colors.Couldn't help my self of shooting some picture of my pretty boy's.They are getting way too big!!Gotta love the clothes for bigger boy's though.Can't get enough of all these great boots that i see everywhere.A picture of our CRAZY cat's...Smothered together on their new throne.

I'll be back soon with some more things to show.How was everyone's Halloween??We had a blast!Exhausting,but worth it :)

Happy Scrapping!

Crafty Secrets Envelope Challenge $25 give-away!

We are having a fun new challenge over at Crafty Secrets.Using this cool video from incredible things,we made gift bags from an envelope.Sandy is giving away atleast 1 $25 Certificate depending on how many people post their bags on Facebook.So ladies,start creating and posting on Facebook.My theme is Adult B-day,and i went for the shabby look using the Crafty Secrets Vintage Patterns CD,Mini Vintage Creative Scraps and the booklet Girlfriends Image & Journal Notes.

I also added some glitter,a pearl and a handmade lace flower.

I used a tutorial from this blog and the best part of it sewing required!

I added some 3-D tape to the gold corners,the crown and the tag to add some depth.On the inside of the bag i used a lace doily to hold the chocolate treats.
I added some sparkle to the tag with some Stickles from Ranger.Don't you just Love glitter??
And a little 3-D crown for the Birthday Queen :)Be sure to check out what the girls have made.Their creativity is amazing and they always blow me away.

Dove of the East Paris Vintage

So this post is all about Dove of the East!When i first discovered this brand i was amazed by the refreshing designs and theme's.Doveen is the founder of Dove of the East,a really sweet and inspiring lady.Check out her blog here Dove of the East Scrapbooking Blog.Being an huge Paris fan,the collection Paris Vintage was my instant favorite.But the other collections are just as special like Russia Journey,India Journey,China Journey,Japan Journey and Shanghai Vintage.Not only are the papers so unique and beautiful,the embellishments are Antique trinkets you want to treasure forever!Believe me,you are not gonna want to use them because they are just too PRETTY!I designed two layouts for Dove of the East using the Paris Vintage collection and it gave my mojo a huge boost.I loved creating these two layouts,the products match so well together that a design was easily created.The titles of the papers are called;Flower Tower,Letters From Paris,Cafe Reverie,Paris I Love You,We'll Always Have Paris,I Was A Free Man In Paris,Twilight In The Tuileries,Cherie,Pastiche,Esprit Du Temps,Amour and Meet Me In Montmartre.Perfect right?
This layout is about missing Paris.I havn't been there in almost 3 years and i wish i could go and have lunch at Laduree.Making a wish under the bridge and take lot's of beautiful pictures.I hope to see Paris again in Spring next year and visit a nice Antique market.Maybe i can finally try out some of those fabulous Macaroons i keep hearing about!I used a lot of 3-D tape and experimented with the stitching settings.Don't you just love the vibrant color of these roses,they are so romantic.Got me thinking about Valentines!First i cut out the corners,then i taped some paper to the back and layered the corners with 3-D tape to let them stand out.I love the effect it has on the layout,it really makes a difference!I added stitching to the photo and card on the background.This way it looks like i added these myself :) Aren't these papers just gorgeous??These stamps are actually from the Russia Journey,but they were so pretty i just had to use it on my layout.I used the one in the top right corner as a border.This picture was taken by the Carrousel at Montmartre,so i just had to use it with the "Meet me in Montmartre"paper.I had to cut it out and use it as a title in the left corner.The colors matched the picture so well,it made me Happy!The kraft envelope,the stitching,the turquoise embellishment and rose ribbon all just gave the layout a warm and vintage feeling.Ticket and money were cut out of the paper and used as embellishments together with the Vintage Paris metal suitcase.I crunched the paper embellishments a bit and added distress ink to add more of a vintage touch.These chipboards come in a Organza pouch and are called Bags of Chips,fun!I used the Europe Journey Foreign Accents and this is what the website say's;Classic, opulent and elegant, Europe Journey travels back in time to Imperial Europe when empires were ruled by Kings and Tzars, Queens and Tzarinas. From the mystical forests to the grand palaces, our chipboard stickers let you create the magic of Imperial Europe with your own imagination.

Did i already mention that i am in love with Dove of the East??Seriously,go check out the website and fall in Love with it just like i did. Dove of the East

Dear Coca-Cola

Do you think you can put a little bit more Lycra in this top for the twins? :) Seriously small,feels like a girls top...I do like the pin-up print though!I ordered the top from their website.Maybe a good reason to start a diet? I think this Summer is officially the worst Summer EVER!No sunny day's what so ever,so sad since the kids already start school in 2 weeks.We want to go to the Efteling themepark but i am not going to spend the day in a rainy park.Let's hope we still get some good weather before school starts.

Here are some layout's i made for the magazine Creative with pictures using Graphic 45 Curtain call.

Have a great weekend!
