Clique Kits - Create Happiness

Hi everyone! Today I have another layout to share for Clique Kits with the December Enchanted Meadow kit. Besides all the Heidi Swapp September Skies papers and embellishments, this kit also had some gorgeous Echo Park papers and chipboard elements. The colors of it asked for some fun and happy pictures.

My little niece shares my love for crafting and already at a very young age I started introducing her to scrapbooking and now she's working on her own Disney album. Every time she comes over, she asks right away if we're going to scrapbook. Two weeks ago I asked her if she wanted to have lunch at McDonalds and she said: Can't we just have a sandwich at your house, so I can quickly start working on my album? Uhm ok, you gotta love this kid!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!

Clique Kits - The cutest Dutchie

Welcome to the Clique Kits December Pep Rally. You should have arrived here from the super talented Tyra. If not, you can start our blog hop overhere at Clique Kits.

This month's challenge: Enchanted Meadow features many icons all about sparkle and shine! Share something in your project or text of your post inspired by this image and quote.

Everyday life can be stressful, it's not about the ups and downs, it's about how we respond to them! Here are some ideas to challenge yourself with this month:
- Do you make lemonade when life hands you lemons?
- Sometimes mistakes and 'fails' turn to even something better or unexpected in our projects. Have you made something ugly into something beautiful?
- Everyday life looks a little different for each of us, but we have in common our hobby which teaches us to cherish our memories - with all their beautiful imperfections.

My favorite way to get out of daily stress, is to spend a day with my little niece and do something fun with her. She is such a happy fun little girl and when I'm with her I lose all stress and forget about not so happy things for a while.

Two weeks ago I took her to Madurodam, where all the highlights of our country are re-built in miniature size. It also has some fun interactive elements and we had such a wonderful day. The only thing big in Madurodam are the super sized wooden clogs and I didn't even had to ask Phiene to pose for the camera.

And here's the line up for today:

Little.Miss.Evie. - Far & Away

Hi everyone! Today I want to introduce you to a brand new manufacturer: Little.Miss.Evie. They have the most gorgeous embellishments that fit any project: enamel dots, sequins, washi tapes, wood veneers and stamp sets. Below I will show you some of my faves.

I wanted to make a layout with mainly the Little.Miss.Evie. products, which means hardly any papers. I started with creating a diagonal design with the Chevron Gold and Heartbeat washi tapes. Then I placed gold sequins over the Heartbeat tapes and handstitched them to the background. I used only one piece of paper and a photo overlay from the American Crafts Shimelle collection to place behind the photo. To embellish the rest of the page, I added two wood veneer butterflies, some enamel dots and stamps from the Love to Travel and Hello Today stamp sets.

Here is a selection of my Little.Miss.Evie. faves, but I seriously could pick anything from their collection!

Currently the products are only available at Scrapdelight and they ship world wide! You can find Little.Miss.Evie. overhere on Instagram and Facebook. Be sure to follow them to see what more is coming up!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
