Our first talented Guest Designer for September is ....


Hello, I'm Annie. 

I live in the Netherlands and I'm married to Sjaak. We have 2 children and 3 grandchildren. Because Sjaak and I are retired, we have plenty of time to look after our grandchildren and for our hobbies. The biggest hobby is making cards. I started doing that in 2003. In the years that followed I learned all kinds of new techniques. In mid-October 2021 I started mixed media, I really like this.

I have another hobby; that's diamond painting. I've been doing this since 2017.

Still, I don't sit in a chair all day. Every day Sjaak and I try to walk about 8 km. We also both play table tennis and participate in the Gelderse competition.

If you want to know what I've made, check out my blog Het hobbyhoekje van Annie  


Our second talented Guest Designer for September is ....


I'm a Finnish mother of 2 teenage girls. I've been stamping since 2011. I got started when my neighbour introduced me to the world of stamping and paper crafting in real life and in blog land; that's how my blog also got it's name: Granne (=neighbour in Swedish).

Usually I make cards, but do love making ATCs, Art Journals, altered items, and, and, and ... what ever seems to be fun and inspires me. Sometimes things work out nicely, sometimes not, but I have fun creating.
