Guest Designer Spot


 I’m very proud to be guest designer here at the My Bestie Aussie Challenge Blog! It’s an honour. My name is Nicolette Vlaardingerbroek, I'm 42 years old and I live in the middle of the Netherlands with my supportive husband Colin and our two gorgeous daughters Liselot and Nienke. They are nine and six years old. Especially Nienke loves to craft with me in my beloved craft room. Two days a week I work as a teacher in primary school.

I started scrapbooking around seven years ago. In the beginning I made 12” by 12” layouts with photo’s. Later mini-albums followed and a year and a little more ago I started making cards! I always color my images with Copic Markers. I love the combination of those things although making cards is growing and growing. I'm proud to be a 'Dutch Bestie Girl' since a few months now. I love to be part of this team. I also design for MicheleRDesign and Cards2Create.

Here are some of my cards. For more cards and other creations, feel free to visit my blog at
If you have any questions, I'm pleased to answer those.

Thank you very much for letting me be a guest designer at the My Besties Aussie Challenge Friendship blog. I really appreciate it!

Hugs, Nicolette
