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!

DIY Snailmail envelope decorating!

Hey there! :D

I’m back with a video! A lot of you know that snailmail has been super populair lately! You see it around on blogs, instagram, pinterest,… One of the fun things about swapping snailmail is the decorating part! Giving your snailmail personality and charm. :) It’s especially fun when you work with a certain theme! That way it can be a creative challenge! :D I decided to make you guys a video where you can see me decorating some snailmail! Of course this is just an example. ;) Be creative, put your personality in it! :D I’m sure it’ll put a smile on the receiver’s face!

Here’s a picture of 3 plain snailmail envelopes that I decorated!

IMG_1149
I made a “Superhero” themed one, a “random things” themed one and a “flower” themed one. The one with the flower theme is the one I’ve put together in the video! :) So you can see the process of that! The superhero one, I just HAD to make as an example, since I love them! :D And lately I’ve been collecting some superhero stickers, so yeah. ;) For the envelope with “random things” I used my DIY cat stamp! :D You can see the envelopes more up close in the video! ;)

I hope you all enjoyed the video and blogpost! :D Have fun decorating and swapping snailmail! :3

Bye!

My HEMA handmade Stamps!

Hey there!

In my last video & blogpost I shared with you some of the things I bought at HEMA and a craft store! One of the things was the DIY Stamp set! So of course I would love to share with you the stamps I made! :D Here’s a picture!

IMG_0969
I made these stamps out of 2 rubbers! I started with the tag one! :D I thought it would be fun to have a tag stamp to use for journaling, snailmail & more! I have to say , it was quite tricky at first! (also since I’m not a perfectionist) With the leftover from that ruber I also carved a “Tape stamp”! With the other rubber I carved a big cat and a little flag stamp! The stamp and tape stamp would definitely be fun to use in different colors! :D I didn’t want to throw away leftover rubber, therefore I carved those small ones too!

Making my own stamps was a lot of fun! :D Although I did hurt myself in the process.. :p (suprise, suprise)! I would definitely recommend you try out this DIY stamp set! It’s so much fun! I would love to see what kind of stamps you all make! ;) Well, that concludes this little stamp making update! You will definitely see me using these in the future, and probably making more! Have a great weekend! :D

Ps: That cute card set giveaway is still going on! Check out the post about it here: https://jumpyjess.wordpress.com/2015/07/15/craft-store-hema-haul-giveaway/

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!

IMG_0859
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!

IMG_0865
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!

IMG_0867
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!

IMG_0869
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.

IMG_0871
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 !

IMG_0874
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 :)

IMG_0881
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!

Small Hema Haul!

Hey there! :D I hope you guys (mostly girls though) had a great weekend!

My local hema store had been doing some rearrangements for the past weeks to add more crafting & stationery stuff. So every few days I couldn’t help but sneak a peak at what they’ve been adding to their stash! The worst part was that I could actually look into the stacked boxes and see all of the stationery things that I couldn’t buy yet. o.O Seriously…

BUT a few days ago it was finnaly finnished! :D I tried not to go over the top with what I would buy, so I only bought what I just couldn’t overlook! So here’s what I got in a full picture!

IMG_0883

On the right you can see I bought 6 cute colored clips! :D You know I love colors & colorcoding, and when I saw these, I obviously couldn’t resist! So yess, I took those along with me! underneath lay some cute colored pockets that you can stick wherever. :) I thought it might be usefull in the future! (especially the picture sized ones!!)

Now for some more pictures of the stamps&washi tape!

IMG_0885

There was this little box full with letter stamps with different fonts. Obviously, resistance was futile! :D In the picture above I stamped my alias name! :3 I’m really develloping a soft spot for wooden stamps lately (aside from my clear stamps love ofcourse!)

IMG_0884

This was another set of stamps! :D Aren’t they just lovely?! I love how it even has some cute quote stamps! And yess, that pineapple also won me over! Then for the final stamp set here they are:

IMG_0886

I especially love the cute banner thingy! That leaf frame is perfect too! :D so yess, I’m very happy with my new stamps additions! Now for the last part of the haul, here’s the washi tape I got!

IMG_0887

I actually tried ignoring the glitter washi tape for a few minutes, by just walking around the store… But for some reason my feet led me back to them each time! Aren’t they gorgeous? o.O I also really liked that other cute set! :D I have to be honest about this “Hema-trip” though. If I didn’t contain myself like I did, I might’ve gotten A LOT more stuff, but I feel kinda proud that I didn’t go overboard! ;D Plus, you have to admit, these finds are hard to ignore right?? :p

That concludes this “Small” Hema haul! :D I hope you have a good day!! bye!

Hey guys!

It’s been a while since I’ve last updated my youtube/blog! There has been a lot going on in my life the couple of weeks, that I will definitely tell you all more about, once I feel ready to share it! But before that, here’s another video! I’ve been noticing that the planner comunity is growing so much everyday, so I decided to make a video for beginner planners (also experienced ones) on how to decorate your planner pages! Lots of people ask me, what kind of stuff I use to decorate my planner pages, or how to get started? Therefore I made this little video for you guys! I hope you enjoy it and gives you some ideas! ;)

That’s it for this little update! Next week I’ll be anouncing the winner of the giveaway, so stay tuned for that! For now, see you all later! ;)

Motherly crafting gifts!

dfsd

Hey guys! Sooo my mother went down to check a local craftstore and came back with these! She has a habit of suprising me with little gifts. ;) Especially since I got more and more into craffting! But that also has to do with the fact that she also likes crafting (kindergarden teacher). Anyway, I’m very excited about what she gave me! I don’t have many colors yet to stamp, so I’m loving this “Cyan blue stamping cushion” !

BeFunky_IMG_0285.jpg In this picture you can see how this cute little cupcake stamp looks stamped down using the Cyan stamping cushion from Colorbox. I also punched the corner with the 3-way corner punch that my mother gave me! Here’s a closeup picture of the punch:

BeFunky_IMG_0288.jpg This is a flower themed corner punch. I really like the the tulip corner a lot.  Can’t wait to use this punch.
If you want to see a close-up, just click on the picture on the left here.

Then to finish off I’ll show you a better look of the washi tape! I’m very happy to add these to my collection! There are some colors that I don’t have yet! Everytime I buy washi tape I tend to buy pink/red or blue colored ones. But it seems like the shops here in Belgium, don’t have any other colors for some reason. ;) Anyway, I also love the vintage cupcake washi tape. My favorite one has to be the black polkadots! Anyway here’s the picture:

BeFunky_IMG_0276.jpg

So that’s it for this little update!  Have a great day! Thanks for reading, bye!
