Because of the closure of Gottapixel my designers have to find a new store. Kristmess is opening at Gingerscraps. I already have an account there. I love that site so I'm glad she is opening her store there. Katrhyn Estry is opening a new store at Pickleberrypop. I heard of the store but I never visited. But after making an account I visited the forum, lots of fun overthere! I also made a few challenges. I think I'm going to like it there.

This page I made with the free minikit "Merry & bright" by Dita B Designs for the "use it all" challenge. Fun to make!

To my followers

It is almost Christmas again. I can hardly believe it. Times fly! 2016 was a good year for me, this year no health issues like the last few years, we made our dream road trip to the United States of America. There were no losses and also business wise at work all went well. I can only hope that it continues in 2017.

I wish all my followers and other visitors to my blog a very merry Christmas and a happy and healthy 2017.

Lots of scrappies

There were so many kits released by my designers that I hardly could keep up making pages. Unfortunately I could not upload to Gottapixel, the site stops at the end of this month due to technical problems (high maintenance costs). Also DST has technical problems, it doesn't show the gallery, so uploading there is also not possible.

For Kathryn Estry I made two pages of Woodland (free for DST members), two pages with Sing Christmas and one page with Frosty toes. For Kristmess I made two pages with Kristmess Express. All kits are available at My Memories and Daisies & Dimples (except Woodland).

Because Gottpixel will close her store Kathryn opens a new one at Pickleberrypop and Kristmess at Gingerscraps.

Autumn's Paintbrush

I'm in a scrapping mood! Made another page with Autumn's Paintbrush by Kathryn Estry. I'm in love with the warm fall colors in this kit!

Indian summer

My most favorite season of the year is fall! The beautiful colors in nature, walking through the woods, looking for mushrooms, I love it! But I also like to stay inside when the wind is blowing around the house, just warm and cosy. And above that designers bring out their fall collections with lovely orange and brown. The latest kit from Kathryn Estry is called Autumn's Paintbrush and that is just what I needed to scrap my fall photos! It is available at Gottapixel. This is my first page.

You're so tweet

You're so tweet is the name of the newest bundle from Kathryn Estry. It is not quite new, it is a remake of her kit Little Cuties but packed with lots of new elements. It is all about little birds. Also new is the matching alpha, fancy stamps, labels and torn papers. The bundle is available at Gottapixel.

I love birds and have lots of bird photos in my collection so I made two pages. Aren't they cute?

Team Hope

Hi everybody! It has been more than a month ago that I put a message on my blog. I was on vacation. My husband and I made a fabulous road trip through the mid west of the USA.
It was really fantastic. But back again, duty calls.

Kathryn Estry has a wonderful new kit called Team Hope. Kathryn says "Team Hope is a feminine collection designed to celebrate the battle and the victory over breast cancer. Breast cancer has touched the lives of almost everyone I know in one way or another. This kit and 6 extra packs is for those women who have fought and who continue to fight. Let's celebrate their lives! The majority of this collection can also be used for other subjects as well"

I love this kit, the colors are so beautiful and soft, so perfect for girlie pictures or as I used, nature photos.

Girly Pink

If you make a boys kit there also has to be a "girls kit" And yes Kathryn Estry made one! It is called Girly Pink. With lots of girly colors and other girly stuff. The kit is available at Gotta Pixel.

I made two pages with this kit, thanks to my colleague Femke. I always may use some pictures of her daughter Fay.

Kathryn Estry has released a boy kit, called Little boy blue. This kit is available at My Memories. Although it is a boys kit, I'm sure you can scrap all sorts of photos with this kit. I made two pages with this kit, both have my little nephew Mirii in the lead.

It was a rainy day today. Time to scrap, what else. At Gingerscraps I just had to make the second template challenge of this month. It is a template by Neverland Scraps. I filled it with the kit Spring has sprung by Cathy K Designs. Subject of my page is the village Positano in Italy. Lovely memories of our vacation last year!

Ice cream

Kathryn Estry has also a new collection in the GGI event at Gottapixel. This collection has everything to do with Ice cream. I love ice cream, who doesn't, but when I was checking my photo stock to search for "ice cream" photos, I only found one(!) photo. It is taken at the buffet of my father and mother in law 60th wedding anniversary!

You can find this collection here!

I'm just in a scrapping mood! Made a second page with Doodleydoo by Kristmess Designs. This kit is so versatile, you can scrap any photo with this kit!


GGI time for August. I'm not so happy with the colorscheme for this month. Too sweet, not inspiring. But Kristmess made a wonderful kit called Doodleydoo! it is a fun artsy style collection, packed with doodle elements as the name of the kit already predicts.

This is my first layout.

Beautiful view

Just felt like scapping this afternoon. For the surprise challenge at GottaPixel you had to use "wood" I used the kit Denim & Lace by Cathy K Designs. This kit has a wonderful wooden background paper in it. The photo is taken years ago in 2008. I believe it is the Brienzer Lake in Switzerland.

Simple Simon Says

There is a new challenge at GottaPixel this month. It is called "simple Simon says" There is a very simple template to download in 12x12, 4x6 card or ATC card. The only rule is that you leave the squares where they are. You can rotate, use photos or not, add as much as you like.

For this template I used the kit Perfectly Paris by Kathryn Estry, because the colors matches the photo I used!

The colors of the GGI of July at Gottapixel this month are red, blue, white and beige. Funny to see how many designers chose the theme "sailing" This theme is also chosen by Kathryn Estry. Her bundle is called Anchors away. It is packed with elements like lighthouses, boats, sea creatures and antique treasures. More than 100 elements! For a limited time the bundle is only $8,- So hurry to the store!

Whether they have a man cave or not, you'll find plenty in this collection that will work with you husband, sons, brothers, father, uncles and best friends. The colors are quite soft though, you can easily make feminine pages too!

Pocket template

I have the flu! It is a persistant type, I'm feeling sick for more than a week now. The only advantage is that I can take more time for scrapping. I'm not the type that can stay in bed for long, LOL!
Kristmess Designs has a collection of page kits for every month. Last year she added the page kits extra's and this year every month gets his pocket pack, including a pocket template. For this page I used the pocket template of february. I filled it with the March Daze page kit. The colors in this kit matches perfectly with my photos.
