a weekend travel journal

Last weekend my husband took me to the belgium coast - just like that - for no reason.
We had a lovely time, spending hours on the beach in the frosty sun.
Our favorite restaurant in Blankenberge is called STARCKX and of course our meal there was excellent as always.
When we go there, we go by train. It is a nice way to travel through Belgium. - no stress and lots of time to talk, read or be crafty.
On the way back I put this little journal together while my husband read his book. I even finished it !

I used many of my "old" stamps ( still favorites ) and in the end I was pleased with the outcome.

Wish you all a nice end of October with a lot of sun, orange leaves and a hot pumpkin soup!

Explore the world for SSS

Using the Let s go - die from Technique Tuesday and the "old " and still beautiful Filmstrip from Tim Holtz , I finished this cover for my new Travel Journal.

The theme this week at Simon says stamp is about exploring the world, so it was perfect to finish the front cover.

In only a couple of weeks time we will start the journey to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands - exciting!!!

The size of the journal will be +- 21 x 14 cm - must be the perfect size for a travel journal (?)!

Nice to be back again!

Something made of nothing

Last month our crafty group "mosaikscrappers" had another workshop.
This is my creation.
Stamps from artstamps (zorrotte) and Paper Projekt.
Simple and nice.


Simon says stamp - use patterned papers

A tag for a friend.
Luise goes "home" on wednesday and will stay "at home" 10 weeks. For me, this means no regular walking partner for me and our dog. Will miss her and her dogs!

This tag is made for her to use this summer in her cooking books. I made it according to the rules at  Simon says stamp , where the theme this monday is to use patterned paper. I used some lovely papers from Simlpe Stories and a stamp from Papier projekt.

Wish you a lovely summer and lots of fun cooking!

playing around...

...a card for a friend, who loves the sea.

I wanted to use my new, cool Carabelle Studio stamp and instead of using it as a "normal" flower stamp , I imagined it to be in the sea.
Other products ; distress ink, posca pen, distress crayon, kesi art stamp and WOW embossing powder.

SSS monday challenge - we can see clearly!

Using the lovely ranunculus field stamp from Stampendous, I made this tag for the latest Monday challenge at Simon Says Stamp.
The theme is " we can see clearly", so we should use acetate, vellum ...
I used an old acetate screen print on top of the painted flowers. The flowers were colored with distress crayons.

..." today is a good day to have a good day..."

Simple , but ...
