Book (&Hobby) Convention finds!

Hey there!

About a week ago I went to a book convention in Ghent that didn’t only sell books at a very cheap price, it also selled some Hobby and crafting stuff! It was the first time I went to a book convention and I didn’t really expect many hobby related things… But to my suprise they had quite a few! I took my mother along with me since she can always use some books as a Kindergarden teacher! The day turned out to be a lot of fun and I will definitely go again next time! :D Here are a few pictures of the lovely things that I found there!

These stamps were the first thing I stumbled upon! How awesome are these? :D I really like the font! And that Little crab saying “I was a little crabby!” is just perfect! Although I like the “oops Garden gnoom” a lot to!

I also found this little foam stamp box! They were very cheap… But I really liked the doodly kind of stamps like the diamond, cake, lightbulb,… I thought they were really cute for journaling, planner decorating,… I’m not sure when I’m going to have to use the “Bad boy, naughty,…” stamps any time soon though. :p I also found those pink flower clips that I thought were just lovely!

Then here’s the stamp that I just couldn’t look away from! How absolutely gorgeous is this stamp? I love the details (the trunks and flowers,..) It’s a pretty big one.. Probably the biggest stamp I’ve ever bought! I think any “stamp lover” can appreciate this kind of stamp! :D When I found this one, my day was already made!

These were the last stamps that I couldn’t look away from. I didn’t have any “transportation themed” stamps so I thought those little ones would come in handy! :D Too bad it didn’t have a plane though. :o The baby stamps were really cheap so I bought those aswell! It came with a long, small acryllic block, which I really wanted.

Here’s a book that I found about Calligraphy! I really want to learn more about it, and thought this book could help me with that. :) It has really nice illustrations !

THEN I found this… I saw a bunch of books with instructions on how to use different kinds of camera’s! I didn’t remembe what mine was called exactly so I immediately called home! First my grandma picked up, but she didn’t understand what it was I was looking for, so then my dad helped me. and yes! There was a book for my camera aswell! :D And that price! In case you’re wondering my camera’s the Canon EOS 700D ! I use it to take these pictures and film my videos :)

I FOUND MARVEL STUFF. :D I was really happy when I saw this sticker book! I mean 1000 stickers! Me and my boyfriend really like Marvel! Currently we’re following the TV shows “Daredevil and Marvel’s agents of Shield”! I recommend both! We’re also hooked on the Marvel lego game. (I enjoy smashing things with the Hulk a little too much :p) I also found those Spiderman cards which I found really beautiful. :)

I am hereby ending this post! I’m very excited about all the lovely things I found. :D and glad I got to share it with you! For those of you who’re waiting for the “Paperdori DIY video”, don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten! :) Have a great day!

I’ve made some free journal cards! + decorating video!

Hey there!

Seeing my by blog and youtubechannel grow little by little thanks to everybody’s support really makes me a very happy person! :D So before I tell you what this post is about I want to thank you all for the kind support and feedback! ;) Every little comment and like counts to me! Because of this I’ve decided to put some more things into the ‘freebies’ section of this blog! Therefore I decided to design some free printable Journal Cards (Project life cards)! :D

I had a lot of fun coming op with simple doodle inspired black&white designs! Here is an overview of the journal cards I’ve designed so far and that I will put on the blog!

It was a real creative challenge, but so much fun! You can see the desings are very simple, but you all know I love simple designs thehe. ;) Anyway the whole point of this doodly black&white theme is that you can add some color to the journal cards yourself! So, where can you download these? You can find them in the header: “planner freebies” section! It’s a word document on A4 paper (which you can change to lettersized paper) ! All you have to do is download them, print them on thick paper and cut them out ! :D Then they are free to use for whatever little project!

Want me to design some more free journal cards? Please let me know in the comments below! :D I would love to come up with more designs! Also, please share me your thoughts and if you like them! ;)

When you use the journal cards and post pictures on Instagram feel free to add the #Jessjc or #Jumpyjess ! Because I would love to see how you use these journal cards! :D

Now! I’ve made a video where I talk about the Journal cards and show you some examples of how to decorate them! Here is the video if you’re interested:

Again, let me know if you’d like more! :D Bye!

DIY quote card

Hey guys! Having to deal with a lot of stress these exams, I decided to make a little something to cheer me up a bit. Therefore I made this “Quote-card” to fit in my journal. Here’s a picture:

BeFunky_IMG_20150116_120611.jpg

As you can see, it’s very colorful and bright. It’s very easy to make! Here’s what you need:

BeFunky_IMG_20150116_121314.jpg ~ a round glass for the circle
~ Some type of glue
~ scissors
~ any type of scrapbookpaper (any color, whatever you like! )
~ a pen (black or any other color)
~ white thick paper (so the scrapbookpaper underneath doesn’t show)
~ paper insert of your filofax/journal (to measure the right size)
~ any type of decorations: stickers, washi tape, decotape, stamps,…
BeFunky_IMG_20150116_114619.jpg After deciding which color/printed scrapbookpaper you’re going to use
you start with cutting the circles. As you can see in the picture on the left.
The white circle will be placed on top of the red one. The red one will be
placed on the card itself. Before sticking them on there, I cute my card
the right size and punched the holes in.
Then you write down whatever quote you like and decorate. :)
Have fun with it!

Some other nice codes that can brighten your day or give you some support:

  • Live today, not tommorow!
  • Keep calm and craft on
  • Do or do not, there is no try (Yoda <3 )
