A few published layouts to share

A few weeks ago I created four layout for a scrapbooking magazine in the UK. It was for a special feature about creating your own frames and borders. Since I wanted to focus on those frames and borders, I kept the layouts fairly plain and simple :-). You will see the pages of the magazine and the layouts below. If you click on the pictures, you will be able to see larger images. Hope you like it!

I was also asked by the same magazine to create a layout for a feature called 'In Her Shoes'. The layout had to be about a woman I admire. I chose Mother Teresa:

A few layouts to share ...

Let's start with a layout about my husband, Siebe:

I don't make a lot of layouts these days, but thanks to Scrapbook Magazine in the UK I am challenged to make at least a few layouts every few months. In the last two months I created the two layouts below, which have been published in their magazine: 

This layout was featured in the so called 'scraplift- section' where readers are challenged to create a layout based on mine:

I made this layout using the photo and papers provided by the magazine:


 I made a few more layouts, but I cannot show them (yet) ... have a nice day,

Cards I made for teenage boys/ young men ...

 I made the card above for Jeffrey Arenz, a Dutch teenager, who founded Skizzle (an organization against bullying). Jeffrey has been bullied a lot and decided to no longer be a victim, but do something about it!

I wanted to encourage him in his efforts to make more people aware of the effects of bullying. Skizzle supports victims of bullying 24 hours a day. In my eyes Jeffrey is a hero and a winner!

Once I made the card for Jeffrey, I had a lot of papers and card stock left, therefore I decided to make some more generic cards for teenage boys. These are four other cards I made:

Four layouts in one magazine :-)

I haven't been scrapping much lately, but when Scrapbooking Magazine from the UK asked me to do an Easter layout, I couldn't resist! I loved being able to share the true meaning of Easter in a scrapbooking magazine: 

In the same issue there was a feature about the 70's. I created two different layouts in 70's style:

And ... the magazine had sent me a picture and some papers to create a layout too:

Thanks for looking, have a wonderful weekend!

Layout in a frame: Love you

I recently created a layout about my dear husband Siebe. I wanted to put it in a frame, therefore I adjusted the size of the background paper.

On the cover of a magazine: Bloom where you are planted

I have recently made some layouts for Scrapbook Magazine from the UK. Normally they ask me to create a layout about a certain theme, but this time they asked me to create a layout for the cover, since one of the designers cancelled the assignment at the last minute! Such a nice surprise! I got the papers I needed to use and a picture of a lovely girl as well. This was going to be so different!

The layout was shown on the cover and there was also a page in the magazine too. My layout was shown and two other designers have created a layout with the same papers and picture:
