Hi! I'm Leontien; I’m a documenter, photographer, and button maker from The Netherlands. I love ’50’s design, typography, true crime podcasts, and the beach.
I started digital scrapbooking in 2008. I’ve since moved to hybrid and regular Project Life® scrapping and I love it! Although, I’m perpetually behind!
DD’17 | Day 15 – For this December Daily® spread, I kept it clean and simple. I used the 6x8 Pattern Builder stamp to heat emboss a piece of heat resistant acetate. I’m so in love with these stamps. They are so versatile, and I know I'll use them a lot in future projects. The orange and gold folded card from the "Candyland" Kit pairs nicely with the colors in the picture.
Week 01 | Right and Left – I had to include the adorable cat face card and since we went to an exhibition with "cat art." It fit perfectly! The bold colors in the photos work well with the cards from the "Candyland" Documenter Kit. I used the heart clip from the kit to hold the entrance ticket to the museum and stamped a few blank cards with the 6x8 Pattern Builder stamp set.
Week 27 | Right and Left – I like pairing vibrant colors with a bit of black to tone things down a bit and to create a cohesive looking spread despite the mix of colors. I stapled one of the heart sequins from the "Candyland" Document kit to an entrance ticket using some thread and used the "love yo self" stamp from the main kit to heat emboss in a light pink to complement the color in the bath picture.
