I try to catch up for the Art Journal Caravan. The last few days I made five pages! The next one will be for week 48 so I still have five pages to go!
I will not show them all five to you, I selected the one I think is the best and the funniest of them all. It is called Zebra and contains a quote by Dr. Seuss.
Materials I used are all by Tangie Baxter, the alpha is by Gunhild Storeide (striped by me). The photo of the Zebra is made in Burgers Zoo and edited by me.

Today I made another two LO's for the Art Journal Caravan 2012. Still ten weeks to go, maybe I will finish it because I don't have to work during the holidays!

The word for week 41 was Noctilucous, that means a shining in the night. I made the background for this LO myself, the rest is by Pixelfairy from the kit New moon.

Elixir is the word for week 42. I used a wonderful paper made by Captivated Visions (Believe in beautiful), elements by Tangie Baxter and Scraps of Ellay. The photo in the background of the bottles is by me, made in the Glassmuseum in Leerdam.

Art Journal Caravan

I'm not going to make it this year either. I just finished week 39 and 40. Before we went to New York I was a few weeks behind and when we came back there were so many kits waiting that I had no time for the AJC. At Scrapbookgraphics you already can sign in for the AJC 2013. Shall I do it again? I'm still thinking about it. Maybe I will, it is fun!

Here are my LO's for week 39 and 40. Credits for the first one are for Captivated Visions (Celeste add-on), for the second LO I only used elements and papers by Tangie Baxter.

They are on sale till 18th December.
I made a LO of the elements and paperpacks designed by Kathryn Estry. This theme is called Bejeweld. Elegant, glittery and pretty for all kind of photo's.

La Sagrada Familia

Kathryn Estry is a very productive designer! Her latest kit is called Newborn King and is ofcourse all about the celebration of Christmas.
I used the kit to tell my story about my visits to Barcelona and the most beautiful church I've ever seen in my life: La Sagrada Familia (The holy family). The kit is available at Scrapbook Bytes.

I sure hope that I will have the opportunity to visit this beautiful Basilica once again when it is finished. They expect to finish La Sagrada Familia in 2026.

Ice dancer

Kathryn Estry made this wonderful kit called Ice dancer. It is a bright kit in red, turqoise, limegreen and grey with lots of snowy elements. Perfect for all your winter photo's, but there is enough in this kit for all kind of other photo's.
The kit is available at Gotta Pixel.

The newest kit by Studio Berna Datema is called Winterdays. The kit is available atScrapbook Graphics.

This is what Berna wrote about when she made this kit:

"Winter days... when you wake up, open the curtains and find out that the whole world is white... Birds are eating from that self made peanut chain, little animals that hop through the garden or in the woods while you are playing hide and seek behind the trees. You wonder if the ice on the pond is already strong enough to skate on it. Or if the sleigh will come along this time..."

Sweet memories that everybody has of his childhood.

I made two layouts with this kit but I'm going to use this kit over and over.


Every year I make my own Christmas cards. This year I wanted to make a different card, no traditional colors, no traditional Christmas elements. I came across the beuatiful kit December by Captivated Visions and I could not resist buying it.
Such lovely colors, in just fifteen minutes my card was ready, I hope everyone likes it!

Another one with Splendore

Don't ask me how it is possible but I noticed lately that most of the visitors of my blog live in the USA and Canada. Isn't it time then that I write my blog in English?

I will give it a try but forgive me if I make mistakes :-)

I made another layout with the kit Splendore by Alessandra Designs. The kit is available at Digitals and at A cherry on top.

Splendore is a kit in bright red, green and blue with a touch of grey. For my last layout I used mostly red, excellent for Christmas photo's!
