BeFunky_IMG_20150117_120927.jpg

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
Oh yeah, I also cut a little heart with my puncher!

Here’s a close up of the washi paper I got! Can’t wait to use them!

BeFunky_IMG_20150117_125055.jpg On a sidenote: I got these from a friend of mine! She had them for a year
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.

DIY easy dividers

Hey there! As you all know I’m a big fan of “Filofax” and recently got my own Pocket sized filofax. I’ve been wanting to make my own dividers ever since. A few days ago my 6 holes-puncher arrived with the mail, and I could finnaly get started! Before I tell you  how I made them, here they are! (click for a larger view)

BeFunky_IMG_20150108_082438.jpg  BeFunky_IMG_20150108_082506.jpg  BeFunky_IMG_20150108_082552.jpg  BeFunky_IMG_20150108_082705.jpg  BeFunky_IMG_20150108_083128.jpg  BeFunky_IMG_20150108_083152.jpg

So as you can see the divider tabs are: “Diary, school, € (finances), notes, shop and blog”.

Here’s a list of what you need:

  1. patterned scrapbook paper (not too thin)
  2. scissors
  3. the dividers that came with your filofax when you bought it
  4. a pencil
  5. sticky notes
  6. any type of glue / scrapbooking glue
  7. 1-hole puncher or 6-holes puncher
  8. Black or other color pen

As you can see in the pictures above the first thing I did was trace the original filofax dividers on the desired scrapbook paper sheet. Then you can see the result of that in the right picture. After that I punched the hole and started decorating them. Here you are free to do whatever you wish. Since these are my first dividers I kept it pretty simple. ;) All I did was add some sticky notes with glue and wrote on them. :) Oh, almost forgot. I also made the corners round with my scissors!

Have fun trying this out!
ps: I know the quality of the pictuers isn’t good, but I’m planning to use a (very simple) camera in the future. I don’t have it with me yet, since I’m away from home to study.

My first filofax!

IMG_20141217_195014
Here’s a picture of my first filofax (that I actually use)! I’ve had a persoal sized one, ,which is bigger, but I felt it wasn’t practical enough. This one is a pocket size, and as soon as I started using it I was hooked! Seeing as my life is pretty busy and I have a lot of things I wanna do in my time, I felt I could use something to deal with the chaos. ;) I love the way you can personalize it just the way you want it *O* ! I got the dividers on etsy , but soon I’ll try to make my own. :)

Hugs, Jessica
ps: any other filofax lovers around there? ^^
