My name is Ingrid Deelen and I'm living in the Netherlands (in Gieten). Almost every day I'm busy with card making and scrapbooking. I sell them at home, although I do not have a shop.
I also give demonstrations in shops and in national fairs for many retailers. My hobby has become my freelance profession!
On this website you can find a lot of handcrafted greetings cards made in various technics. Most cards are from my own design, some are inspired on books.
On the left side of the screen you see the main dutch navigation buttons but below this text you can find an english menu chart to guide you through my site. When you click on one of the technic buttons then thumbnails of the cards will be displayed in the bottom of the screen. Clicking on a thumbnail will show the card. When you want to return to this list just click the english flag.
It would be nice if you entered a few words in my guestbook.
