Made my friend a “See you soon card”!

Hey there! Some of you might know that I love making personalised cards for friends, family,… There’s just something about making that unique card for that one person! :D One of my dear friends from Japan that stayed in Belgium for over a year on an exchange program is going back to Japan. Of course I could not say goodbye without making her a card! I haven’t really shared many cards I make here on my blog, but will do more from now on! :) I will miss her very much!
Here is a picture of the card:

It’s not anything complicated as you can see! But I think simple cards have a certain charm about them! :) Do you also love making unique cards for your friends? I would love to know!

That’s it for this little cardmaking update! ;) Have a great day!!

DIY Happy Easter card!

IMG_0470

Hey there!

You must be thinking, “Jessica, are you posting 2 times a day now?”. Nope, it’s a coincidence! And there is only one explanation! I actually forgot to post my DIY easter card, and it would be silly to wait till After Easter right? I normally don’t forget these kind of things though. BUT this week was the game release of “Mario Party 10”, which my and my boyfriend waited for , for months! We might’ve played non-stop? (It’s SOOO MUCH FUN) It’s a game mostly based on luck, and then some skill in minigames. The only sad thing about it is… “I have the WORST luck!” We played hours in a row (the number might scare you :p), and I didn’t win once. It seems impossible. :'( Anyway!

NOW FOR THE DIY!

Here’s the materials you’ll need: Scissors, fork, cute scrapbookpaper, ribbon, glue, clear nailpolish, a pen and white paper!

  1. Make or fold your white card base (whatever size you like!)
  2. cut out some small eggs, whatever size and number.
  3. Glue the paper eggs on the white card front.
  4. Make some cute ribbon bows using a fork! I actually found this technique on pinterest! :o Check it here: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/325455510546877272/
  5. Glue the bows on top of the paper eggs (I used crafting glue).

It is very simple to make! I had a lot of fun making them! ;) Tell me what you think about it!

HAPPY EASTER EVERYBODY! :D

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:

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!
