Hi, friends. Long time no see! I promise I’ll be back to card making and blogging soon. Work is keeping me so busy and I’m having a hard time to find a balance between working and hobbies. ๐Ÿ˜” When I come home from school (I’m a kindergarten teacher), I often find myself organizing new activities filling in digital documents, etc. It never stops! 

On a more positive note, today is Black Friday and that means SALES! ๐Ÿ˜ This morning I ordered my mom’s Christmas gifts before leaving to work. Yay! Here are some great crafty deals! Happy shopping! See you soon. ๐Ÿ’•

Hi, friends. How are you doing? ๐Ÿ’• It’s Laura here and I decided to write a short post for a quick chat and to announce the winner of the $25 gift voucher to My Favorite Things. The winner is Kristina Hein! Congratulations, Kristina. ๐Ÿ˜„ And a big thank you to all the sweet card makers who entered the giveaway!

You all know I graduated in June as a Kindergarten Teacher, right? ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿซ Well, finding a job in teaching isn’t so easy here. Especially when you want to teach in the area where you live, like I do and all of the schools I reached out to myself, don’t have any job openings. With that being said, I still don’t have a job and it honestly makes me so sad. ๐Ÿ˜” The new school year here has kicked off yesterday (Sept. 3th) and I feel useless. What if I won’t find a job as a kindergarten teacher? I honestly can’t imagine me doing something else than teaching (or card making ๐Ÿ™Š) since it’s my childhood dream.

Because of this, my card making mojo is gone. I tried making a card over the past couple of days but it never really worked out. ๐Ÿคจ So right now I’m trying to get my creative juices flowing again by browsing Pinterest, following new card making blogs and watching card making videos on YouTube. I hope that will do the trick. ๐Ÿ€ I’m also going to focus on the things that make me feel happy like working out and baking delicious goods with my mom (lol, odd combo, right?).

Thanks for your support. I will be back soon and of course I will keep you updated on my job hunt. Sending big, big hugs! ๐Ÿ’›

Hi, friends! How are you doing? What’s the weather like where you live? We’re suffering from a heat wave here in Belgium, but it looks like it’ll be FINALLY cooling down by the end of the week. The past couple of days I’ve been working hard in my craft room. I have lots of new blog posts and videos scheduled and a bunch of fun collaborations coming up. I discovered two fun new brands I’m excited to share about and I got the chance to do some guest designing for two of my favorite brands: Sunny Studio and My Favorite Things. Yay, yay, yay! โค๏ธ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ

This Sunday, August 12th, I’ll be guest blogging forย the Sunny Studio blog. I’ll be showing you how to create a pop up slider card! Don’t worry, I also have a video scheduled to show you how I made this! ๐Ÿ˜€ This card will feature the Home Sweet Gnome set and the Sliding Window Pop Up die set.

Sneak Peek Pop Up Slider Card

My Favorite Things just released new stamps and dies and I’m in love. ๐Ÿ˜ So many good stuff! The best part? Last month, MFT reached out to me and asked me to make some cards with their newest products. Of course I said yes! I’m so glad I’m finally able to share some sneak peeks. Ready? Here you go!

This card was made with the Friendship Rocks set which is just so fun! ๐ŸŒˆ This card along with a video tutorial will be up on Tuesday, August 14th!

You know I’m a sucker for anything autumn/fall related, right? Well, the same goes for (cute) Halloween!

This card along with a video tutorial will be up on Tuesday, August 21st. Maaaaybe there will even be a giveaway. ๐Ÿงก๐ŸŽƒ
