It's midnight already but I wanted to share this creation with you. It's another CD folder (see one of my previous posts for the template) but this time for my almost two year old nephew, who needed something to enjoy underway to his holiday destination. He's very fond of Bumba so that's what he got!
Have a nice weekend everyone!

Goodmorning everyone!
Are you all enjoying a well deserved holiday? It is clearly noticeable that a number of you are away; it's a lot more quiet on all the blogs. This week has been perfect for pregnant women; not too cold and not too warm. As far as I'm concerned it can stay like this all summer but I would let you have a couple more hot days!
Today I have a delightfully springish-summerish card to show. It is somewhat minimalistic but it I felt that adding more would cause a bit of overkill.
Enjoy your weekend everyone (and for those who have yet to go on holidays I wish you a lot of fun!)

CD Envelope with Free Template

Hi everyone!
There's a special post today. I've been having several ideas but I needed to find the time to work them out completely. Here is one of those ideas which I finally got to work on because I had a CD to mail to a friend. Making this envelope for the CD was so much fun that I decided to make a template and share it here.
I made two different ones: a PDF that can be printed on A4 paper and simply cut out, and an SVG file for the lucky Cricut owners (this file can also be converted to DXF for Silhouette users).
The hyperlinks to both files are available under the image below. Just let me know if there are any questions! I hope you will enjoy it!

Experiment and my latest little friend

Hello everyone!
Last weekend I wanted to make a small case for keeping stamped images. This was an excellent opportunity to become acquainted with my Silhouette. The result is the case illustrated below. I kept it simple during this very first attempt. I plan to do some enhancements such as the size and other aspects which I will naturally report back on later!
Last but not least, meet my little friend Lola. This little fluffy bunny stole my heart at the pet's store. I had been contemplating about having a bunny for quite a while but this little friend did the trick. She's been with us for just over a week but what a cheeky thing that is! Of course, she inherited the "I love to chew cables"-gene that most rabbits have :-) After we almost lost our internet connection I feared that the power would be next so we're keeping an extra eye on her!

Tiny Ladybug

Hi everyone! Boy is it hot today! Even last night was hardly bearable. But it doesn't stop me from crafting. I came across this old Magnolia stamp and instantly thought of a lady bugs border to combine it with. At that point I also found myself stuck on how to proceed. I went looking for an appropriate sentiment and found a little verse which I fell in love with right away. In all it became a card that may cheer someone up!

Have a nice weekend everyone!

Like a fairytale

Hi everyone! Hope you are coping with the continuous heat! In The Netherlands we finally have a cooler day with a cloudy sky. I've been indoors for the last couple of days working on cards. Here's is a recent creation that I wanted to share with you.

Enjoy your sunday everyone! I'll be having a bbq at my mom's house luckily with not too warm weather.
