Happy Valentine's Day!

๐Ÿ’•Hello everyone๐Ÿ’•,

I'm not a big fan of commercial holidays like Valentine's Day, it's just too much for me. Maybe it's because I'm Dutch, it's definitely not as big over here as it is in the States for example. But I also feel that you should show your love for someone you care for on a daily basis, not just go over the top on one special day. Buying expensive gifts etc.. it just doesn't feel right to me. But I have to admit, I have sent cards in the past, just a sweet little message for the one I was with. I guess that's what you were 'meant' to do on Valentine's Day?
Nowadays, me and my guy sometimes do a little something for Valentine's Day, but it doesn't have to be especially on the 14th of February though. Often it's on the 15th of a random month, because that's the day (in November) we got together 5 years ago. 

๐Ÿ’–But..... this Valentine's Day I do like to bring gifts... for you to download.๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜

This kit was originally from 2017, so that's relatively new, but I have adjusted it a bit and added some new elements.  It's not a huge kit, but definitely a complete kit, with lots of useful stuff in it I think. There are 4 parts, and you can download 2 parts on here and the other 2 parts on my Facebook Group to complete the kit. I hope you like it! ๐Ÿ’•

February Update!

Hello everyone,

I'm really pleased to see my 'Walk On The Wild Side' kit is extremely popular and had over 300 downloads in just 2 days time. Thanks for that! This really keeps me motivated to make more goodies for you. 

I also wanted to let you know that my Retro Holly Jolly kit will be offline within a week, so if you haven't downloaded it yet, make sure you do before February 10th. 

Plus, I will be updating and adjusting a kit for Valentine's Day and it will be online on the 14th of course. It's a kit I made in 2017, so not really an old one, but I think I can adjust a few things here and there to make it a bit more contemporary and useful and more in the style I'm getting into these days. 
So, keep an eye out for that! 

I hope you'll all have a great Sunday and I hope to see you soon!

Hello February!

Walk On The Wild Side

I'm pretty proud of how this kit turned out! I handdrew all the little animals, the jeep, some of the flowers and later I digitally adjusted and coloured them in with Photoshop. It's a great way to combine 2 of my hobbies, drawing and designing scrapbookitems. 

The theme for the Pixel Scrapper blogtrain for February was so cool, and all of the contributions are adorable and beautiful! If you like to download the rest of the blogtrain, head over to the Pixel Scrapper forums, you can find the list with contributors on there. 

I hope this kit will be useful to you, I think there are some pretty useful elements in it, and the colours are not too bright  and just a pretty mix of muted colours. I had fun designing everything and I think this will be one I definitely will use a lot myself. My son loves wild animals and I can see him go on a safari trip when he gets older. ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜‰

Here are the 4 parts you can dowload! If you want to grab the matching journal cards and tags, go to my Facebook group, I will post the link to that part on there. 

Have fun with this kit and please let me know what you think of it!

Walk On The Wild Side - sneakpeak!

My son turns 8 today! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽˆ๐Ÿฐ๐ŸŽ‚ ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ‘ฆ

I've made a postcard for him, using the kit I made for the Pixel Scrapper blogtrain, Walk On The Wild Side, which will be available for download tomorrow! 

Here's a little sneakpeak of the kit and the front part of the postcard I made, I think it turned out pretty cute. 

I'll be back tomorrow with the downloadlinks for the kit!

A Very Blue Monday

I hope your Blue Monday isn't too blue! 

This kit won't help, because it is blue all over, and I think it will be a while before I touch anything blue coloured when I'm working on a kit in Photoshop, because for now, I've had enough of the colour BLUE... lol! Luckily the kit I'm currently working on for the February Pixel Scrapper blogtrain has just one very dark blue in the colourscheme, so that's good. ๐Ÿ˜‰

The last 2 parts of 'January Blues' are now ready for download. 

You can grab the elements here, with the link below the preview. As a little extra, I also have a part 5, with some cute journal cards and wordart and a quickpage I made ages ago, in 2400x2400 pixels, so not the normal size, but still I think it's lovely, with a beautiful poem about January on it. If you'd like to get this part as well, head over to my Facebook group , that's where I share the link to the downloadpage! 

I hope the rest of your January will be good, with many sunny winterdays! ⛄⛅๐ŸŒž

January Blues...

Goodmorning everyone, 

It's a beautiful cold and frosty (but also very sunny) sundaymorning over here and I can't wait to go on a walk later today. Winter is finally here, and although I don't really like cold weather, when it's like this, I wish every winterday would be like this.๐ŸŒž

Tomorrow it's Blue Monday, I think you've heard of it. A day, apparently, when a lot of people feel down or depressed, at least that's what I read everywhere. It's mostly because of the feeling a lot of us have, after a month of celebrations, holidays and festivities, to come down from all of that and having the long month of a cold and grey January ahead of us. 
Personally, I don't feel like that on Blue Monday. I love December, but I always look forward to a fresh new year, full of new opportunities and chances. 
So I do like January as well, also mainly because my son will turn 8 by the end of the month. ๐Ÿ˜ฒ
It only seems like yesterday when he was born, but.. well, time flies! ๐Ÿ˜ต

Years ago (in 2010) I made one of my first fullsize minikits, and I called it January Blues. I had never heard of Blue Monday back then, but I guess I knew the feeling it referred to. The kit is in - of course - blue shades and has a lot of denim / jeans elements and papers in it, which I love. The kit needed some adjusting and updating, and I think it still is a pretty fun kit, with the adjustments I made. It contains 18 papers and about 50 elements. 

You can grab the first 3 parts today, and I will upload part 4 & 5 tomorrow, on Blue Monday. I just hope it won't be too Blue for You. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I hope you like it, let me know how useful it is in the comments sections. 

Have a happy Sunday!

A little update

I'm really glad my Science Fiction kit is so popular! I was just looking at the downloads, it's been downloaded about 250 times in just 2 days time! ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ 
It did surprise me a little, because I thought it wasn't quite THAT spectacular, but it seems many of you really like it. 
So thank you for that! 

Every now and then I get questions from people (on here, on Facebook or on Deviantart) regarding older kits that I've taken down or that aren't available for download anymore, asking if they will be available again in the future. Mostly I just want kits to be available for a certain period of time, because I need the space in my storage accounts, but also because I want to be able to keep track of things and it's getting more complicated when I have so many kits 'up' for download. Sometimes there are issues with the download pages, or other technical problems, and I just don't have the time to keep up with all of those issues. I have a job to go to and of course a family life that I hold dear. ๐Ÿ˜‰

But when I come across a question from one of you, asking for a specific kit that you'd like to download but it's not available on here anymore, I usually recommend to look on my Deviantart account first, or on my Facebook group. Sometimes I keep the downloads up on those pages for a little longer, just because I simply forgot to take them off, or because I posted the downloadlinks later on there than here on my blog. I just thought you should know this. If it's not available anywhere anymore, you can always send me an email, ( and I will see what I can do. It's not a guarantee that you'll get what you're asking for, but you can sure try! ๐Ÿ˜›๐Ÿ˜†

Then lastly, today I've started designing already for the new Pixel Scrapper blogtrain edition, called "Walk On The Wild Side". I love the colours for this theme and the theme itself, but it's also quite difficult to be original with this one. Most designers go with animal prints etc. and that was also what I was going for, but ah well, at least it will be a consistent blogtrain I guess. 
I'm also doing a renewal of an old kit this month, called January Blues. It's with lots of ...well blues, winter elements of course and with elements of jeans fabrics, which makes it a very fashionable and usable kit too. It won't be huge, but with about 15-20 papers and about 50 elements it'll be worth it I think. 

I hope January will be a great month for you all, have fun scrapping and I'll be back soon with the January Blues.๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜†

(The pictures below are just a few examples of the 2 kits mentioned above).
