Happy Halloween

My gosh, it's already the end of October!!Where did time go????
I'm so sorry but since school started again in September, my life became so busy.  Being pregnant doesn't help for the moment as I'm so tired when I come home from my teaching job.  Only 15 days to go and then I'm home!!!  I hope to have a little time for myself before our baby decides to say 'hello' to this world.  I really need some time to scrap, knit, crochet, read books, ....  I suppose that there won't be any ME-time when the little one is born.

Last weekend we were hosting a product partner swap with our friends at Clearsnap.

I didn't feel like scrapping (no inspiration) so I made a card. 
I used the stamp sets: Colorful Companions, Dutch Sentiments
And a detail:
Smooch: Frost
ColorBox Fluid Chalk Inkpad
– Sea Crystal, Arctic Deep

Take care,

My Stamp Box: KISS

Today our Design Team members of My Stamp Box  are sharing projects that keep the focus on stamping – mostly just inks and papers are used. Some designers even created their own embellishments using simple stamping.

I made a layout with an old picture of my mum and me.  I think I was about 1 year old on that picture ;-)
For the title I used the stamp set Friday Night Stencil .  If you want to see some more inspiration, just go to the blog
Have a wonderful, sunny weekend.
Love, Isolde

Hi everyone,

I know it takes me ages to update this blog the past months.  But I have a very good reason for that.
Eric and I are expecting our first child.  I'm almost 23 weeks pregnant now.

18 weeks pregnant

In the beginning I was so sick most of the time that I didn't feel creative at all.  I had lots of ideas for layouts about my pregnancy but nothing creative happened.  I'm feeling better now but it's so hectic at our place for the moment.  I'm painting, decorating, .. the babyroom, helping at Erics bar (it's so busy lately), ...  So I don't have a lot of time to scrap but don't worry, 2 layouts are waiting to be shown but still have to wait till it's on the My Stamp Box blog

See you then,
Love, Isolde

No inspiration?

Hi everyone,
It’s my turn again to post on this fantastic blog.
Sometimes I have no inspiration at all when I want to scrap and then I surf around the internet to look at layouts from other people. Or I take part in a secret scrap lift. It’s lots of fun to create a layout whith the layout of someone else as inspiration. I played with the girls of Scrappende Dames. I got the layout of Saskia.
This is the layout I got in my mailbox:

And this is my layout!

I used the stamp set Your Story
I hope all of you take part in a secret scraplift as it’s so much fun!

Kraft & Grey

Hi there,
Here I am again with some DT work from MyStampBox.
Long gone are the days when grey and kraft brown were the colors of drab and dreary. Now these colors are the hottest neutrals in the craft and fashion industries!
All the DT members made a layout or card with some Kraft paper.  This is what I made:

Sorry for the bad picture but I took the picture while it was already dark outside :-(

Love, Isolde

Road trip

Hi there,

Hi there,
Hope you are enjoying wonderful spring weather! We finally have nice weather in Belgium. It’s so welcome as it has been raining or grey sky during the past 3 weeks, yikes! Oh well, it was perfect weather to scrap.
I made a layout about a buggy tour we did on vacation in the Dominican Republic. We had an amazing time and were covered with mud when arrived back at the hotel. We saw amazing nature, beautiful beaches, drank coconut milk, …
The stamp set Road Trip was perfect for this layout!

My weekly 2012 - week 1 - 4

After a long thought I decided to play along with Armance and her weekly 2012.  She made a beautiful template.  It's clean and simple and gives you the opportunity to write some lines too.  I'm totally in love with it.

Here are the first 4 weeks of 2012.  I'm so sorry for the bad pictures but it's already 7 pm and dark outside.  The paper I use is creme colour and not grey, white or anything else that you would think when you look at my photos.  It's just normal cardstock :-)

Anyone else who is making a weekly journal too?

CHA releases from My Stamp Box + a giveaway

Hi everyone,
