Christmas & Inkido!!

Good afternoon and merry Christmas!!

And because it's Christmas I created both a Christmas layout and Christmas card for Inkido.

The layout is about our Christmas Tree. And you know what I love most about our tree? It's because it's filled with love and memories: we have lots of handmade decorations (handmade by the kids and me) and lots of decorations we brought home from our various trips and vacations abroad. We have angels from Rome, Mickey Mouse on the Eifel Tower from Disneyland Paris, a snowman from Germany, a shopping bag from Macy's New York, a sock from Harrods in London, a gingerbread man from Austria and a Cable Car from San Francisco, oh and the Angel in the top of tree is from London too. So many sweet memories, it's makes me happy just to look at the tree :-).

And you know what makes me happy as well?? All those gorgeous Inkdio products Lise-Lotte and Petra sent me!! Every time an Inkido envelope is delivered at our house I can't wait to open it!! And as soon as I open the envelope or box the goodies spill out: papers, charms, flowers.... there's so much! And look at that cute little card on the right of my layout? Isn't it just perfect??? I had the same photo of my DD and our Cocker Spaniel!

 And here's a list of the Inkido products I used: patterned paper: Hjertegod, Juleglede, Kongler and Classic (God Jul Grön), flowers, leaves, charms and some "pearl branches".

And here's the card I made:

and some details:

Materials from Inkido: patterned paper: Classic (Noter Brun) and Autumn Wardrobe (Tailored Stripes) and some charms. The stamp is from Ladybug and Friends. Used my Epic to emboss the background and my Copics to color the image.

Don't you just LOVE the stamp???

And I'm not the only one..... I stamped the image a few times just in case I'd make a mistake with the coloring. And guess what happened when I wasn't looking?? Right!! My kids "stole" them!!

This was it, hope you liked it and that you'll be back soon!

Have a wonderful day!!


  1. Wat een geweldige kerstcreaties! Zowel je layout als de kaart zijn helemaal super! En jouw kinderen zijn niet de enige die de stempelafdrukjes zo leuk vinden...mijn nichtje is helemaal weg van de Magnolia's;)

  2. Thanks so very much for visiting my blog and your lovely words. I have thoroughly enjoyed going through your blog. WOW! Love your creations. Look forward to many more.

    I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. Take care, Nadia.

  3. Merry Christmas, Monique.

    Make sure you take some close up photos of the ornaments before you tear down the tree - I want to see them on next year's (!?!) December layouts!

    And the card is too cute. Love how you put the snowflakes on the banner. And I had no idea you were so good at coloring images. Little do I know *lol*
