Paper & Pictures in Doorn

Don't you just love this scrapbookshop................
 it's Paper & Pictures in Doorn.
I visited them yesterday when I went back to Driebergen, the place where I went on vaction for more then 10 years as a child and let me tell you............ when I got there I got a bit emotional, haha =P

Anyways Paper & Pictures is such a lovely store with very nice people who work there, that you really should visit them yourself !!
As you can see I made a few pictures from the store after shopped 'till I dropped, hahaha.
I will show what I bought in a later message, but I really need to go to bed now, so thanks for dropping by....

Tilda Autumn & Winter Collection 2010/2011

Autumn kit                 Winter kit

All you Tilda fans...............
 the new Autumn & Winter series will be released tomorrow !! = )
Want to know who's selling them, look for shops on my blog page "Where I Like To shop"
I just ordered the Autumn kit...... I think I'm going to wait with the Winter kit though and see if Tones' new book has the pattern 'cause not only the new Tilda series,
but also the fantastic new Eline Pellinkhof products and her new book will be released in the next couple of  "weeks"
So I have to make choices, hahaha =P

By the way did you guys see Elines' mailing on her blog,
 no..... you really should have a look !!
Great pictures that make you drool =P

You know I was wondering who's also an Eline Pellinkhof fan and how many of you are out there......
if you like you can leave a message = )

Thanks for dropping by and have a great evening !!

Drawer box (HobbyJournaal 65)

(front view)

(side view)

(with two of the four drawers open)

This drawer box I saw in the HobbyJournaal number 65
(Dutch hobby magazine) that Tiets Wolfard created.
The box doesn't have one, not two, not three..... but four drawers,
a drawer on each side and an easel so it holds up the card.
I used another Hänglar Stänglar image....
isn't she cute or should I say... "attractive" ; )

Anyways, if you also would like to make your own drawer box with easel..... run to your local hobbyshop to buy HobbyJournaal number 65 (prize € 1,30)
Have fun making the drawer box I know I did !!

My first Hänglar Stänglar creations

This time I pimped a egg carton with Tilda scrapbookpaper
(gingham green), a Hänglar Stänglar girl with chicken stamp,
some paper flowers, ribbon and a old Dutch 10 cents charm.

(front view)

And what is an egg carton without some eggs right...... of course you can't keep real eggs forever, so I used styrofoam eggs instead
(Ø 3 cm)
Next up is a 11 x 11 cm hidden drawer card..... a what !?..... a hidden drawer card. It's sort of a little box with a drawer and a "flap" that's used as a card.
I found this idea on one of the Hänglar Stänglar blogs I follow and they direct their followers to this English blog who have the measurements etc.
Only their measurements are for a 7 x 7 cm hidden drawer card, so I had to figure out how to make it bigger and still have a "flap" I could use as a card...... but it worked =P

To decorate the hidden drawer card I found some old scrapbookpaper that I still had laying around and that went well with the Hänglar Stänglar bug hug stamp.
I also used a vintage oval shaped button to open the drawer with.......

Inside I used the same Hänglar Stänglar bug hug stamp and Eline Pellinkhofs' Dutch text stamps,
that says "You can use a boost..... Get well soon"
A fun way to wish someone a speedy recovery.... and you can put something inside the drawer, perhaps  for someone who has a bad cold some vitamine C, aspirin, tea bags etc !? =P

And after I made the 11 x 11 cm hidden drawer card I just had to make the 7 x 7 cm (very cute size) version.

Here I also used an Eline Pellinkhof Dutch text stamp, this time it says "Enjoy every single moment"

I hope you like these ideas and enjoy the rest of your weekend, thanks for dropping by again = )
