Kaisercraft Gel Pens – Jowilna’s Favourite Things

I love colouring in pens and pencils, but the act of colouring itself I find really frustrating and boring. It’s a personal thing, but that doesn’t stop me from messing around and adding some colouring details in my diary. One of my favourite things is my set of Kaisercraft Gel Pens. Then recently a friend gave me two smaller sets of Kaisercraft Gel Pens and now I think I am in heaven. Together...

Funky Frames – using die cut frames on a card

Creating framed accents on a layout is so easy. You simply cut the frame and pop it around a photo right?

With all those lovely die-cuts available to us nowadays it is hard to just keep on using them in the same way all the time. Let’s face it, a die-cut is pretty much just a cut and that’s it.
