Guest Designer Monique Liedtke
17, Timothy 15 and Mats 9) and our Cocker Spaniel, Jippie. I started scrapbooking about 11 years ago and am totally addicted; there’s nothing I’d rather do! I don’t have my own scrap room, but I guess you could say I have claimed just about the whole house! I would love to spend every day scrapping from morning till night, but as that’s not possible I work part-time in a small HR office in town. There are many reasons why I love this fabulous hobby; of course because I’m preserving our
memories, but also because of all the new friends I’ve made and last but not least because it helps
in clearing my head in my busy and hectic life: when I scrap I forget everything and anything. Bliss!
My scrap pages are always full of colors and details. My favorite techniques are layering, sewing (both with the sewing machine and by hand), using inks (but not too much) and using lots of Silhouette cuts. If you want to see my projects, please visit my blog:
I’m thrilled to guest design for Jenni Bowlin this month! It’s a dream come true!
I find it hard to pick a favorite from the layouts I created with the June papercrafting kit, as I just adore this kit: the colors are so awesome: red is my favorite color, especially combined with golden accents! But if I have to choose a favorite I would say “Love is made for 2”. I almost never use black as a background for my layouts, but when I sanded this black cardstock I just loved what appeared!
What you see in the photo is my little scrapping niche in the annex of our living room. We don’t have enough room in our house to allow for my own studio, but I don’t mind, I love this little place and it’s totally mine! And small means I have everything within reach!
My favorite photo would be this photo of my family and my dad and (step)mother right now. We took this last month when we paid my dad and his wife a (week long) surprise visit at their apartment in Spain; we had such a special time together! I lost my mom and (step)dad during the last 4 years and that makes me appreciate moments like these even more!
