Decorating my Midori Traveler’s notebook inserts! + winner giveaway!

Hey there!

Before I talk about my new video, it’s time to anounce the winner of my “random clumsy giveaway”! :D The person that is lucky to receive the cards that I accidentally bought double (yep!) is: DOVIE!

Now for the video! :D

Those that follow me on instagram know that I recently got my first midori traveler’s notebook inserts! Which I am super stoked about. Although I love the inserts, the cover is a bit to plain for me. Therfore I decided to personalise them and decorate them to my hearts content! Here’s a picture of how they turned out on the front!

Yess, they are very colorful, just the way I like it! If you’re curious to see how the back looks like, I show you that in the video! Now what is the video about? I know some of you sometimes don’t know how to get started when it comes to decorating inserts, plannerpages,…  So I’ve decided to record how I decorated one of these inserts. I talk about the goodies I use following by me decorating the inserts. If you’re curious, here’s the video below! :D

That’s it for this little update! :D I hope you guys enjoy it and had a great weekend!

Flea market Finds!

IMG_0923
Hey there! It’s summer, and you know what that means! :D FLEA MARKETS! Since I was a child I’ve always loved going to flea markets. The unique things you can find there are just so precious ! And this time too, I also found some lovely things for a very low price! Starting with this frame!

IMG_0929
First of all, this is my favorite color, so it immediately caught my attention! It’s a small cute kitschy frame as you can see! Aren’t those two birds just awesome? :D I think this frame was about 50 eurocents. So ofcourse, I did not hesitate one bit to take this cute frame home with me!

IMG_0925
I also found some stickers! :D Well, since it’s a flea market, I wasn’t suprised these weren’t complete anymore.. But because of the price (and my stickeraddiction) I had to buy these. Also I love cats so. I think they’re pretty cute!

IMG_0927
Then I found these cheap unused sticky notes! :D I really like the colors. And you know, a planneraddict can never have enough sticky notes (amongst other things… )

IMG_0932
Besides all of that, I also found this cute little box! I absolutely love this color! And also that sakura flower on top is so cute! The gold accent aswell! So yess.. this little box came back home with me aswell! But the last thing I found.. Is wat completely made my day!!

THESE CARDS! (yess, this needed caps. :p) There was this old guy with a bunch of cards from the fifties! Just look at how oldschool these are! :o The colors are so lovely! I thought they were absolutely precious! :) Since I’m a stationery freak, I just had to buy some of these.. Now I feel like maybe I should’ve bought some more! So yess, finding these made the flea market trip worth while! I can’t wait to visit more flea markets! :D I wonder if I’m the only one who just loves strolling around at a flea market? :o

That concludes this little update! Have a great weekend everyone!

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).

  1. Finish it with a “Happy easter sentence”!
  2. DONE!

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

My name is Jessica, and I’m a Washi Tape addict!

Hey there !!

A lot of you know that I am obsessed with washi tape! So I thought it was about time to show you the washi tape I have collected so far! Starting off with a picture of course!

BeFunky_IMG_0373.jpg

So that’s my stash(for now)! Counting them I think it’s about 90? But you all know, that it will keep growing. Now, why am I so fond of Washi tape you must be thinking? It’s the possibilities. There is just so much you can do with washi tape, especially decorating things (planners, furniture, presents, cards, craftworks,…). Since I also love seeing lots of different colors and patterns, it just makes me wanna have more washi tape! For now I’m on the lookout to buy more gold-themed washi tape. But they are just so hard to find in stores in Belgium. Next step: Ebay! But this will have to wait for a bit! ;)

I am wondering though, am I the only one here who’s so crazy about washi tape? ;)

New dividers! (kikki k planner)

BeFunky_IMG_0309.jpg

Hey there! As you guys know I recently bought a kikki k medium sized planner. Since I wanted to make it more personal and unique I made these dividers asap! I The things I used to make these dividers were: “Scrapbookpaper, ikea round stickers, pen, laminator, gold pen, hole punch”. That’s about it! My mother actually brought these ikea stickers and I though they would be perfect for my new dividers. I’m pretty happy with them! I chose soft colors since the kikki k lilac is also pretty soft and elegant looking. I’m really digging it! If you want to see the dividers more clearly, here they are! Just click on them for a bigger view.

I’m curious to know what you guys think of my new dividers ;) That’s it for this planner-related update. I hope you all had fun reading my new post! Thanks for the support! Bye.

Hey ! Here’s another (post-exam) haul! And I am super thrilled about my purchases! Since there were sales going on I was able to by some scrapbooking paper at half price! The Christmas-themed paper will be for next year ofc. ;) Other than that I got some clear stamps: “Hugs” and “Kisses”. You can use this for so many things.. “Thank you cards, Get well cards, valentine day’s cards, other cards,…” I also got some washi paper! I really want to expand my washi-tape collection, but it’s hard to find in shops in Belgium. Then moving on with some cork stickers! I just loved these. And finnaly a round corner puncher!! I’ve been wanting this for a long time , but was never able to find it. NOW I HAVE!

BeFunky_IMG_20150117_121909.jpg You know what this means right?
No more weird looking round corners!
Just look at that perfection ! <3

and never used it and decided to give them to me. So nice!
Since we don’t have Marta Stewart supplies in any shop in Belgium, I’m
really happy! This concludes the haul! 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 )
  • Smiling is contagious. :)
  • Dress like you’re meeting your worst enemy!
  • It’s never to late to start again.
  • Smile. Laugh. Live.
  • ….

That’s it for this post! Have fun trying it out and thanks for reading.
