August Guest Designer Monique Liedtke



My name is Monique Liedtke and I live in The Netherlands, with my husband of 14 years and out 3 kids: Manon 13, Timothy 10 and Mats 5. It will be no surprise that they are the main focus of my scrapping. I’ve been a SAHM for almost 5 years, but as of the beginning of October last year I was lucky to find a job in a little HRM office. Here I can work during school hours and it’s only a stone’s throw away from my home and the kids’ school!

I started scrapbooking about 7 years ago and became addicted straight away! Ever since I have my own scrap corner in our living room I scrap every free minute I have!! I just love being creative and that it makes me so much more “aware” of all those “little” things than I was before I started scrapping. I find it hard to describe my scrapbook style but my favorite techniques are definitely sewing and stamping. Furthermore I love to use lots of embellishments and lots of different papers and colors.
A few of my other hobbies are: reading, travelling, watching (British) detective series and walking (with our Cocker Spaniel). I’m a volunteer at my kids’ school library and I help out in the local scrapbook store regularly.

Ever since I laid my eyes on Nikki Sivils’ designs I fell in love with them. I think I have them all! I’m so happy to be her Guest Designer!!!

For the first two layouts I used Ellie’s Day Out. I love the soft pastel colors of this line which are just perfect for the photos of my daughter!








Also with Ellie’s Day Out is this card I made for my friend’s birthday.



This layout I made with “U R My Favorite”. I used one of the few photos I have of myself with my kids.


And last but not least I created this photo box, which was actually a box filled with Prima flowers. I painted it with white crackle and decorated it with “My Sweet Cherry Pie” and “Henry’s Brilliance” and 5 b/w photos.
