Hi, friends! I hope those of you who celebrate Thanksgiving, had a lovely day yesterday with family and lots of delicious food. It looks like I have been living under a rock. I haven’t made a card in a long time, but better times are coming. 🙂

December will be a month full of festivities. First up will be the birth of my dear cousin’s first baby boy. I’m so excited! My two cousins always have been like sisters to me (I’m an only child!) so I’m just stoked to welcome this little baby boy to our family. Next up is Christmas and New Year and that means cozy and festive times with family. My exams are also coming up so I’m in full preparation.

November and December are also the best times to save money in your favorite shops. That’s why I’m here today! I’m going to share sales and coupons from my favorite online shops. Get ready to do some shopping! 🙂

Happy Saturday, friends! Today I’m part of Heffy Doodle’s blog hop in honor of their brand new Winter release. This new release is simply adorable and I think you’ll love this products as much as I do.

In this video, I’m showcasing the new Elfish Antics set ( HFF | SSS ) to make an elf-tasctic – lol, sequin shaker card! 🙂

I had a lot of fun making this sequin shaker! I created my own patterned paper with the Peppermint Zone stencil from Winnie & Walter ( WNN ) and Festive Berries Distress Ink ( ELH | AMZUS | SSS ). These inks blend like butter! Because I haven’t used them in a while, I really noticed how amazing these inks are. 🙂

I colored the sweet elf from the Elfish Antics set from Heffy Doodle ( HFF | SSS ). I used Copic Markers to color the image. I mentioned all of the colors in my video. This time I didn’t link to each marker since that’s very time-consuming and since I don’t have a lot of time nowadays, I couldn’t do that. 🙂 I hope that’s okay!

I filled up my sequin shaker with a variety of sequins from The Ton. That’s my favorite part of making a shaker! Picking different colors and shapes of sequins. So much fun.


Like I mentioned before, this blog post is part of the Heffy Doodle Winter Release Blog Hop. In total there are 13 talented ladies showcasing their cards made with the new release. Here’s a list of hoppers. Enjoy the hop!


What would a blog hop be without a giveaway, right? One random winner will be selected to win a $25 gift certificate and free shipping to the Heffy Doodle store. Comments must be left by 11:59 PM PST on 11/7/2017. Winners will be announced on the Heffy Doodle blog. Good luck!

Happy Sunday, friends! How are you doing? Fall is finally here in Belgium. The temperatures have gone down a lot and it’s getting so much colder. Eep! I honestly love fall. It’s my favorite season – the colors are so pretty and sweater weather is simply fun. 🙂

The past couple of weeks have been crazy! I’ve been working like a mad woman. College is keeping me so busy. There are lots of assignments to do and I’ve also been preparing for an internship. Truth to be told, I miss making cards and videos but working (almost) non-stop has become a habit, lol. In 8 months from now, I’ll be graduated from college and I’ll officially be a teacher. How cool is that? However, since I’ve been working so hard I’m actually ahead on some things so that means I can make some new cards in the upcoming days. Yay! 🙂 I can definitely use some much needed craft therapy.

So, I’ll see you very soon with a new card and video. Thanks for your support! Big hugs. Xo
