Study break

I have not been around due to the fact that I study hard for my upcoming exams at July, 2nd. And I do all that I can get my certificate; the results are published on July, 3rd. With a job in the insurance industry I have to go through  an exam every three years.  (That's the Dutch law; I must re-qualify every three years...)
I am sorry for not being around;there is only a post planned ahead for CCCB.
It's a matter of time and putting my exams as my first priority.I will be back after July, 2nd!

City Crafter #265

Hello!

It's Tuesday and we are having a new challenge at the 
City Crafter Challenge blog. Today Kirsty is our host and 
she picked the theme "tic TAG toe"
And asks us to create a tag or a project with a tag.

Our Guest Designer is Susan Butler; she was the winner of challenge #256.Susan is a talented artist:you can find more of her fab projects on her blog.

I wanted to create a tag.
A few weeks ago I bought a box full of Project Life cards.
I fell in love with the bright colors and modern designs. 
And despite the fact I have plenty
 of tag dies and tag punches I choose 
one of these cards as a base for my tag:)I guess I am in a summer mood because I used yellow again.
And stripes; I never ever get tired of stripes!
For a bit of contrast I cut 
my sentiment out of green cardstock:




The wooden sentiment was a gift from my sister Jacqueline.The eyelet has the shape of a flower and sequins were added in matching colors:

This weekend

Was busy and good :)Yesterday I went for a haircut and straight after that we drove to Ikea for a closet and a table. We needed a few simple items and that's what I love about Ikea. Simple items for a very reasonable price.Back home Marcel put them together while I did some weeding in the garden. 
 We needed an extra closet since Martijn is coming home on Thursday. And we want him to have a space of his own with enough storage space for his clothes and belongings. I don't know how things are going on in your house but when we start to put a room together I have all the other rooms involved in a sort of mini make over:)And it kept me busy sorting out stuff, decluttering and reorganising till almost midnight.In between I had lots of fun during my "break" and Skyped with Martijn and Ros.
Today was filled with studying,  folding laundry and some cardmaking.This card is made with the Quilted Summer set from Papertrey Ink.
I was inspired by the card made by Betsy Veldman.In f…

Workshop

Hello!
I am sharing here a card I made at theworkshop hosted byDoraand with the company of Judith, Cornelie,Gerjanne, Nelleke, Ans and Monique.I had a wonderful day with these ladies!
Dora offered us the chance to make cards and a gift box with birds and flowers. We were challenged to color the stamps.(That's a true challenge for me..)
Dora made a kit for all of us.I made one card and finished the other card when I was back home.I am not very productive at workshops; I also love to chat and laugh:)
I am an absolute beginner when it comes to coloring so I decided to finish my first card with the help of a few Papertrey ink diesThese dies are in my comfort zone:)
I layered the papers:



And it turned out like this:



The card made me think of a few years back. Back then I used a lot of patterned papers with floral patterns and butterflies.I can see now how much my style has changed over the years. From lots of patterned papers to lots of white and mostly CAS design.
My second card is made with …

City Crafter #264

Hello!

It is time for a brand new challenge 
at theCity Crafter Challenge blog. Samra is our host and asks us to add a banner:

Our Guest Designer is Kara Lynne; she is amazingly talented and 
you can find more of her lovely projects on her blog.

On to my card:From time to time I want to add something to my CAS cards.I love white but I also love to add a little "depth" and patterns to my cards. Sometimes by using patterned papers and today I also used a stencil and embossing paste.The patterned papers are from an old card kit
and I added a die cut made from an instasquare. The banner die is from Papertrey Ink



A little bling, a wooden star and some
 hemp cord for the finishing touches.
The sentiment is placed on the inside
because the front of this card speaks for itself.
