  • "Dikke knuffel' stamp from Anna Gretha Designs
  • Spectrum Noir Achohol markers
  • Cheap glitter gel pens and a white gelpen
  • Flower made with the Silhouette Cameo

Hello crafters!!

Hope you are feeling ok! It seems like everyone on the world has the flu or a cold in the winter months. Even me.
That's why I made this cute handkerchief box of Dutch Doobadoo. It's one of my favorite stencils of Dutch Doobadoo. You can even make a little giftbox of it. But today it's a get well tussue box.

On a A4 white cardstock you trace the lines of the stencil and cut it out. Fold the the sides that is shown on the stencil. If you are not sure how and what lines to trace, try it first on cheap paper. Before you use the beautifull cardstock and designpaper of Joy! Crafts. When you are sure than go on with cutting the A4 cardstock. And trace now the designpaper. You now can see cleary witch lines to follow and look at these photos as a reference.  It's really easy.

Distress the designpaper  for a shabby look. 
Glue the designpaper on the white cardstock and fold the box. 

And now the fun part, you use your baby Trouvaille and cut out some cute dies. I've used the 6002/6203 flower dies  and a corner die of Joy! Crafts. If you can't find a die in the shop, send us an email.

Embellish the tissuebox with some pearls or other things you like.

We would love to see your creations! 

Keep on craftin'

Freek-Willem my dragon

Freek-Willem my dragon
Another member of our little family. I alreaddy introduced my owls. click here
He came in aug 2016 in our little family. He is probably almost 7 years old. We are not sure.

This dragon is a Beardeddragon. Thats why it's called a dragon and looks like a dragon.
Beardeddragons are almost like dogs. Love to cuddle and to play. Freek-Willem is not used to that unfortunally. We do not know what happend the first 5 years, but we do know it was not good enough for a dragon. Now we see him having fun and loves to cuddle.

When it's hot enough outside in the summer, he goes outside with us.

Pjotr & Lemmy, my owls

Sometimes I need to show of my little family :D

These are my two little owls: Athena Noctua, Steenuil, Steinkautz.

Lemmy decided to sit in my mini photostudio :D  So... thank your for that Lemmy :D  
She is from 15th of may 2014 and now almost 4 years old

Pjotr in the front. And Pjotr is from 31th March 2013 and almost 5.
The are full brother and sister. Theygot the same mum and dad.
Before I became disabled, I did alot of demo's with them at schools and helping childeren with their projects and told alot about the little owl, that's actually their English name "Little owl".   The are just about 20cm - 7.8" tall.

Have a great week!
