Geslaagd/ Graduation

Mijn jongste dochter is geslaagd voor haar
diploma ondernemer detailhandel mbo4
en dit kaartje heb ik voor haar gemaakt.

Goed gedaan hoor!! Ik ben trots op je.

Dit kaartje is gemaakt met Club Scrap papier
van Girls Night Out en de stempels zijn
van Club Scrap (meisje)
en Michael Strong (ster).
Op de achtergrond zie je het gebruik van
twee verschillende embossing folders.
Beide zijn met witte inkt bewerkt.
Tekst is met de computer gemaakt
en geprint.
My youngest daughter has graduated this week.
She can now open her own shop, but this is not what
she is going to do, she is going to get another degree
 and will study for organizing big events.
I am so proud of her!

Well done!!

This card is made with Club Scrap paper
called Girls Night Out.
The stamps are from Club Scrap (girl)
and Michael Strong (star).
In the background I have used two different
embossing folders with white ink on top.
The sentiment is made and pruinted with the computer.

Coffee & Cake

Natuurlijk kan ik het niet laten om met mijn eigen
koffiekopje te stempelen: Michael Strong heeft het ontworpen.
Maar bij koffie hoor natuurlijk cake en
het is gevouwen met de irisvouwtechniek
en het patroon vind je op het blog van Bergkaarten.
De tekst is een stempel van Hero Arts.
Of course I cannot stop using my coffee cup tha is made
by Michael Strong. With a cup of coffee one needs some cake
and this irisfolded cupcake pattern you can find on my friend
Bergkaarten's blog for free.
The sentiment is a stamp by Hero Arts.

and be creative.

Club Scrap Die Cutter's Blog Hop

Today me and my friends
- Club Scrap lovers -
want to show you what you can do with your
Club Scrap paper and one of the die cut machines.

I still have one of the first Cricut machines
( the smaller one)
and to be honest I don't do anything
spectacular with it. Mainly I use it for cutting
letters. I love all the alphabets.

Today I want to share with you a little booklet that was made
with the "Storybook" cardtridge.
I started  with cutting the pages for my booklet
at 5 1/2 inch with
using different colors of Club Scrap
Lotus Pond papers.
A total of 10 different pages were cut.
To make the outerpages a little more sturdy,
cut 2 pages out of grey bord by tracing
with a pencil
the ones you cut out with your machine.
Then cut them out.
Use bookbinding glue to adhere 2 pages: one to the front
and one to the back of the grey board.
Do the same  for the backpage.
Choose the pictures and print them.
I have a wonderful free program called
Picasa, where you can print in all sizes
and this time I choose to print them wallet size.

Back to the Cricut and the letters
for the front page were cut and on the edges
some ink was added.

Me and no stamps? No......!
So I got  the Lotus pond stamps out,
ink and my Karisma pencils.

When all pages are finished,
pile them together and punch a whole
and use a bookbinding ring to hold
them together. Decorate the ring
with ribbons and charms.

Here you see the result of it all:

Front page: cut out lettering, stamps
and ribbons. Extra charms: dragonfly and frog.
I chose the water lily theme because
my water lilies started to bloom yesterday and I just
remembered I have so many beautiful pictures
of them that I can use in a booklet.
Pictures, scrap background, stamps and a cut out form
that is stamped on.

Pictures and stamped images.

Pictures, stamped images and ribbon.

Fowers with Cricut, lettering with stencil,
pictures and stamped images.
And on the back of the booklet I used some text
printed with the computer. Stamped images, flower picture and brad.

Koffie/ Coffee

Deze geweldige nieuwe stempelset
is van Michael Strong en heet:
Ik kan het bijhna niet geloven, dat er een
stempelset naar mij is genoemd, ik vind het een eer
en helemaal geweldig.
Gisteren lagen ze in de brievenbus en
natuurlijk moest ik er meteen mee aan het werk.
Samen met het Club Scrap Mocca Java papier
en deze stempels heb ik onderstaande
scrap papgina gemaakt.
De stempels zijn met wit geembossed
en ingekleurd met disstress inkt.

Above you see a new stampset
by Michael Strong and its name is:
I can hardly believe that there is a stampset
named after me. What an honour
and a great feeling.
The stamps arrived yesterday in my mailbox
an ofcourse I had to use them right
away for a scrap page.
In combination with Club Scrap's Mocca Java
paper and the new stamps, I made this page.
The stamps are embossed in white
and colored with distress inks.

 Have a creative day!
