My name is Merel I am married to Marcel and mother of three boys, Max, Wouter en Thomas.
My favorite hobby is scrapping. I teach workshops at peoples homes or on location, along with my friend Anne. We're "scrapangels". Take a look at our website, www.scrapangels.mysites.nl if your interested in one of our workshops.
This Blog is all about scrap!
Thanks for taking the time to look!
Finally, something I can post here. I've been so bussy the last two weeks with designing new workshops along with Anne. We want to introduce some new workshops to our selection and take some of the old ones out. We'll be posting the new workshops on our scrapangels site http://www.scrapangels.mysites.nl at the beginning of september.
But the good news is that I also managed to complete a lay out that I can post. Blue, red and black always work for me. I love this "Wouter look" he was just gone, in to his own little world, like he always does.
I used a ton of stamps on this lay out. I painted the chipboard flower cirle red and then stamped some images on it with antoher color paint, I got out the old paperglaze again and glazed in the corner stamps, and chipboard flower.
I just love these dreamstreet papers! I used a ton of stickles on this lay out. And created some ghost shapes with the cuttlebug, some embossing and stazz on ink. ( and stickles of course!!) The bling swirl is from prima.
It's the boys in the Efteling, this spring. I love the bright colors on this cosmo cricket paper. All of the pp are cosmo cricket, the stars are storebrand.
I went away with a girl friend as well last weekend (no kids allowed!!! whoohoo!) We've been planning this trip for 6 years now, so we enjoyed every moment! Shopping, sleeping and dining without stress! We've decided to now make it a manditory yearly trip, so we can keep our sanity!
I've also been working on a few workshops, but I can't show you anything yet...
Thanks for looking, and as always, your comments are greatly appreciated!
I just love pictures with the image of a child walking away!
I used tons of ranger distressing inks, my new prima build a swirl stamp set, stickles, the butterfly was bright red when I started out I used everything from paint, to distress ink and walnut ink spray to get it to the brown color it is right now.
