Can you tell that I loved making this envelope book. This is the third one I made till now, and I think I wil be making at least one more. I made a little video for you to see how it looks in real life.
This time I made it with a hard cover.


You can see the still photo's and read all about it when you follow the link below.

I made a diamond pop up card

Sandie from Hobby Alternatief showed us through the chat a YouTube where Demo Donna showed a diamond pop up card being made.

I have made a few cards similar likt this one earlier, but this one is different and I thought it would be fun to make something like it again.
not like the one in the video of course, would be difficult too because I don't have most of the materials Donna used.

But I do have paper, ink and embossing powders  

You can read all about the materials I used in my HA blog post, it is in Dutch though.

Technique: working with dia frames




When I saw the assignment from Hobby Alternatief for this week: "make something with dia frame" the first time I had loads of ideas that I could make, but as usual my card came out totally different. :)A few of those ideas did make it on this card though. I started with looking for the slide mounts.
Yes I still had some from ages, most of the frames still had dia's in them but I found 2 empty ones. Perfect!  

If you want to see what else I used for this card besides the dia frames, and how I made it you can take a look in my post at the HA Blog

Working With Sketches

Working with sketches

For Hobby Alterntief we get a theme every week and every month we are working with a template, at least 1 time each month. For this month we had to use the sketch I showed above.
I like working with sketches, and then build them up, I have a  board on Pinterest where I safe a bunch of them for when I'm not sure how I want a card to look.
To be honest I have saved them there but haven't used any of them yet.

Back on topic.  :)

To build this one up I used butterflies and flowers that where left over from previous projects and a few that I cut out for this card, when you want to see the photo's of this card you can follow link below.

Return Package Or better said, pass along package. I will try to explain.

We, the Design Team of Hobby Alternatief had the chance to use and test a few cut and emboss folders. We passed a "return package" to each other and we all where allowed to choose one folder to make an actual card with. We had 3 days to keep this package and then we had to send it to the next one
When I finished my card and I thought the blogpost too, I learned that we had to make an alternative card too. The second being different from the first one. Also we couldn't use a folder one of the others had chosen so by the time the return package arrived to me I had the choice of 2 that I could use.
When you want to see what folder I used you can follow the link below
