Small Stationery haul + 500 followers! :D

Hey there! :D I’m back with a little update! First of all I’d like to thank you all for helping me reach 500 followers on this blog! I never thought I could make it this far! A lot of you have been with me from the very beginning! Thanks for all the support! <3 It means the world to me!

A few days ago I went to a convention with my mother and grandmother called “Country Life” in Ghent. We’d never been there and decided to go and have a look. It was mostly about furniture and decoration, but there was this one cute stationery stand! It was the last year they would be there, as they’re closing up their store! They had some really cute stationery, that I just couldn’t pass by… :p Here are some pictures!

First of all, there was this super cute address book! I just love this kind of vintage look! :D Esecially with the passport & postcard on there! Since I have my own place now, I thought this could come in quite handy. ;)

These, I could NOT ignore! :D I mean look at that cute chubby cheff with his fabulous moustache. How can one pass these by? They’re also super tiny! Honestly I wish I would’ve bought some more! :o

These were the last things I bought at this lovely stand. I thought the memoblock on the left was pretty fun with the “huh?” :D And it just happened to be two for the price of one, so I grabbed the foodie one aswell!

Finding unique stationery like this really makes me very happy. :) I did not expect to find anything at that convention, but was caught by suprise by this cute stand. Too bad they’re closing the store.. well, that concludes this little update! More to come. :D

Bye guys!

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!

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!

IMG_0799

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!
