Review: Dr. Martens Multi Daze Backhand leather satchel

A few months ago Dr. Martens came out with a new collection, The Daze Collection.

It is very colorful and young looking. In this collection they made footware, accesories and cloting.

When I saw this collection, I was immediately sold! I love bold colors and bunnies! For a long time I wished Dr. Martens came out with a collection with cute bunnies! So when I saw it, I immediately had to get me some!

I bought this beautiful 11" satchel! It looks even more beautiful in real life! The print is perfect, there are no flaws. It has black metal buckles and details.

There is a big main compartment with the printed logo and a front pocket with a name card slot.

This satchel was very carefully wraped. I love it very much! It looks beautiful!

Dimensions: 11 inch wide x 8 inch tall x 3 inch deep.

It is very well made and has black stitching. It's hot pink, lime, lilac, yellow, orange and blue and it has clashing trippy prints and patterns.

The shoulder strap is 45 inch long and comes in two parts so you can adjust it how ever you want.

This beautiful psychedelic satchel is a homage to the early 90s rave culture. Its found it's home in amped-up neon hues. This intense colour palette echoes the energy of the acid house movement.

I love it's bold fluorescent shades!

Here you can see the unboxing video that I made.

Car themed birthday card

For my fathers birthday yesterday I made this card.

The diecuts are handmade with dies I bought on AliExpress. To make the background I used a diamond plate embossing folder and a bit of gilding wax.

Low budget tip: butterfly stamp set AliExpress

Today we didn't have internet again for half a day (unfortunately that happens more often lately). But luckily I received a package from AliExpress today!

There was a pretty butterfly stamp set in the package! No regulary stamps but layer stamps! I ordered this set 2 months ago today. But that's not so bad. You know in advance that you have to wait 1 to 2 months. This is therefore the low budget tip for today! I bought this set because I really liked it and I wanted to test the result of such stamp sets.

What did I buy from AliExpress?

  • What: Cute layer stamps in butterfly design
  • Price: 1,07 euro for the set
  • Link: butterfly stamp set

 Now test how well they stamp! !

I used the following materials to test these stamps :

  • A watercolor pad,
  • An acrylic stamping block
  • Different colors Distress Ink
  • And of coarse the butterfly stamp set

And now the test!

I have kept it simple to test this fun set. I have chosen 3 colors of ink for each butterfly that match well and here you can see the result!

These are the different colors of Distress Ink I used.

Here you can see all the stamped butterflies!

Final conclusion

I definitely recommended to buy this set! The stamps stamp very well and they print beautifully. I am very happy with my purchase and I think I will use them often! I hope I can find more of such nice sets on AliExpress!

Low budget tip: Joy!Crafts dies in the Action!

Today I went to the Action. I do that almost every week to see if new hobby items have arrived in the store.

And today I saw a lot of cutting dies from the Joy! Crafts brand. I didn't believe my eyes at first!

Normally these cutting dies cost 10 to 20 euros each, but in the Action they are now for sale for only 1,49 euros each.

There were a few dies that I really wanted, but they were a bit pricey before. Now the price didn't stop me at all! I bought 25 different ones!

Some are normal cutting dies and others are cutting and embossing templates. They are all from the Joy! Crafts brand but from different series.

If you also like to use cutting templates, don't forget to visit your Action this week!
