Hello my dear journaling friend,
How are you doing? I hope you are still coping with the ongoing strange times we are living in.
This last month I really felt the need to take a step back from creating digitals & tutorials. It was time to recharge my creative battery. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to go on a vacation, in our own country (all Covid-proof). We visited the beautiful island Texel, one of the Waddeneilanden.
Over on YouTube I'm taking you along for a little bit, so you can enjoy a little piece of the beautiful seaside.
Our vacation really helped me to get in a better headspace. New ideas are popping up for more tutorials. I'm thinking about the designs for the April & May bundles.
I hope that you have a similar outlet, a way to get yourself in a better place at times when you maybe feel a bit low on energy. Does journaling help you? Do you go out for a walk? Or is it something else that helps you the most.
News from the Shop
In November and December 2020 I was rather productive 😊 I made sure I had 3 months of planner & journal bundles for you. I also made 2 bundles of paper bundles. And... there is a new freebie! It's all about winter fun.

The funny process of creativity
Every once in a while I see photos on Unsplash that I immedeately resonate with. That call me to create papers with them. This was the case when I came across a series of photos by Annie Spratt. These photos speak to me. The leaves all pressed to the glass of the greenhouse. The misty, grungy colors.
So I downloaded a few and started to create. This is an intuitive process where I try out lots of things. I overlay the photo with paper, with a solid color, with another texture, or I even overlay them with each other... Continue reading
This very special bundle is a little smaller that the Light Greenhouse Papers, it also maybe is not for everyone, but I find them fascinating and gorgeous 😊 so... check them out and see if they suit your needs
The Magnolia & The Butterfly - The February edition
After the restraint of the January bundle I went really early spring with the February bundle 😄 A blue butterfly, green foliage, blush pink of magnolia. All gorgeous images that helped me create planner & journal papers bundle with a soft and dreamy feel. And what about the introduction quote in this bundle? “Never lose your sense of wonder” It is now one of my personal favourite bundles. I hope you like it just as much!
This bundle is one of those that took a long time to come to life. The base of it – the damask pattern – I created somewhere in the summer of last year. Scrolling through my “ideas” folder I came across it and then I knew I could now make a beautiful spring bundle with it. It needed the vintage flower drawings that I only recently added to my digital collection. So I sat down to see if I could combine the two… well… here is the result!
These are dated for March 2021, but I've also made an undated version so if you fancy these colors now for your planner, go ahead and check them out. Of course there is also the Journal Papers bundle, with no planner features... 😊
Just a little reminder...
It offers the January, February and March bundles at a 15% discount!
Over on YouTube I've started a brand new series where I take you along to help you create beautiful booktrackers. I guide you through the process step-by-step so anyone can do this. You need only the free online program www.canva.com
I did create a small bundle for you with more lovely vintage book related images, in case you want some other images to play with 😊
Well, that's all for now 😊
Wishing you lots of creativity & welbeing. If you download papers from the store to make something lovely with them, tag me on Instagram @maureenastrid? I'd love to see what you create.
