My creative year 2016 in review

As this is the last day of the year 2016 it is time to look back to see what was happening. This year is was part of quite a few design teams (la-la land crafts, I am roses, C.C. Designs, LDRS Creative, Noor! Design UK, Magnolia-licious, The Ribbon Girl). In late August I made a decision to only keep 3 of my teams (la-la land crafts, I am roses and C.C. Designs) and this gives me more free time to work on the projects I love and with the stamps I love, Magnolia stamps of course.

I made a lot of cards for the shows (Paper Nest Dolls) and was published in 3 magazines this year (Creatief met Carten, Papercraft essentials and .... )

Here's a few of my fav 2016 cards:

Thank you all for following my blog, my fb page and my Instagram. I hope to see you all back in 2017!

December club kit ❤ la-la land crafts

Welcome to another la-la land club kit post. Today I'm showing you my projects made with December club kit.
You can get your club kit too if you subscribe to la-la land club HERE!
With this month's kit I made a card and a tag. I coloured World Marci for the card and one of the cute bears for the tag . I used Maja papers for the card and Pion for the tag.
This card has a bit of marine feeling added. Papers are from an old maja collection (Nyhavn). If you look closely you can see ships on the grey paper.

Distress inks used:
skin: vintage photo
cheeks: worn lipstick
hair: antique linen, walnut stain
pants: pumice stone, black soot
hat, heart, boots, jacket: stormy sky, victorian velvet, black soot
earth: peeled paint, black soot, faded jeans
shirt: hickory smoke, black soot

On this tag I used one of the old la-la land crafts dies, Stitched Sun and Clouds. I just thought flying between the clouds will look cute and I like how it turned out.

Distress inks used:
bear: vintage photo, gathered twigs, black soot
balloon: mermaid lagoon, black soot, walnut stain
