VIDA Artist: Sweet Life Fashion Scarves Collection Launch

Hi, everyone!

I'm glad to share the good news that I have my very 1st VIDA E-Commerce Fashion Item launched yesterday as one of their VIDA Artist.

I was invited November 2015 to join their roster of VIDA Apparel Designers.  I had a number of designs submitted and commented on.  And now, I'm glad that one of my designs has initially made it and has paved the way for other more of my designs to be approved and now launched as part of my Sweet Life Collection under my name.

- My Sweet Life I Artwork Collection,
Internationally Acclaimed with a Tiepolo (Arte Milano) Award 
at Palazzo Clerici,
an April 2016 Awardee in Milan, Italy.


This very item is called the Sweet Life Modal Scarf, which the design came from one of my very first Art Series, under my designing hobby with hobby name also of Creo by Lady Katuz, fitted appropriately and aptly into a scarf.

- My Sweet Life II Artwork Collection, 
Internationally Acclaimed with a Colosseo (Artist in History) Award 
at Brancaccio Palace, 
a May 2016 Awardee in Rome, Italy.


The above item is called my Sweet Life II Modal Scarf, which the design came from another one of my very first Art Series, under my designing hobby with hobby name also of Creo by Lady Katuz, also fitted appropriately and aptly into a scarf.


I'm glad my Art Series have reached or have traversed to the fashion industry to be borne by a fashion item which every lady or woman would like to have in their wardrobe or to be just a part of their clothing.


I'm really excited to collaborate with VIDA for this collection.  VIDA is a new kind of fashion ecommerce company that connects artists like me all over the world with producers to bring our work to life.  For every product, VIDA hopes to provide the gift of literacy to the makers they work with.



Thank you,
Kathleen H.

Guest On Spotlight: Nanette van der Veen of Book of Life Pocket Life Scrapbooking


Hi, everyone!

I'm introducing a Paper and Digital scrapbooker, a Project Lifer from Netherlands on Creo by Lady Katutz' Guests On Spotlight.

My very 7th Guest on Spotlight is a friend and my current Lady Boss at the Book of Life Project Life Scrapbooking Facebook Group.  She is also a former Lady Boss at the Netherlands-based Sunny Side Up Creations where I create digital art and papercrafts to artist trading cards for her European community members.  She's none other than Nanette van der Veen


I've found Nanette when I was looking or design team members for my Kaboodle Doodles Challenge Blog.  I was the incumbent administrator of the UK-based challenge blog.  She became my Design Team Member at Kaboodle Doodles Challenge Blog.

In turn, I also did work for her at her own all-craft-wide European challenge blog that is Sunny Side Up Creations.  This is where I was able to sport and show-off my crossstitch works and baking projects as Brooches n' Crossstitches and also as Creo by Lady Katutz.  I was the only Asian and Filipina in here design team as I did projects while managing my own Kaboodle Doodles and also my Filipino Scrapbookers Challenge Blog.

We later on, both worked together in introducing digital element freebies at Kaboodle Doodles facebook page.  She's my lone partner in creating digital freebies to our community members.  I create digital clusters, digital frames as freebies.  While, Nanette creates digital images and digital project life elements.

She later on ended up with my Kaboodles Doodles as one of our challenge sponsors, as she has her own scrapbook and project life outfit in Netherlands.


She went on to host a worldwide papercrafting contest on scrapbook layouts and handmade cards.  This was called the Supreme Scrap Tournament.  As of this year 2015, it has been their 2nd year holding such worldwide event.  Oh, I did love or dreamed of their tournament's trophy!!

Below are the prepared questions and her corresponding answers to each:  
I hope you get to know her thru this post of mine about her.


9 Short Questions and 1 Wrap-It Question:

1.  I would like to know your complete / full name and what you do.
Nanette van der veen

2.  How did you get started in your craft?

Once.I saw a show of Oprah Winfrey about scrapbooking. I was sold immediately. Must have been in 2003 or so

3.  Where there previous or other arts and crafts that you delved with or are currently enjoying?

I always used to craft: clay, jewelry, origami before scrapbooking . I also do digital scrapbooking and project life

4.  Do you have hidden crafts that you like and enjoy by yourself?

hidden crafts?

5.  Amongst your crafts, which one did struck gold and became your main stint?  How did it help you?

Scrapbooking! Because you can combine any craft technique you like. It helps me to relax

6.  How many years have you been dealing with your craft?  Or with each of your crafts?

Scrapbooking since 2003. Project life since 2013

7.  What is your main motivation or inspiration for indulging with your craft?

It keeps me sane. If I scrapbook nothing else matters...

8.  Five years before, where were you in your craft?  Five years from now, what do you envision for your craft?

Five years ago I produced 10 spreads a weeks. I was in various DT's. It was.my main hobby. In five years time I am sire that i will still be crafting. I tried a m scrapbook shop, digital scrapbook shop but that is not making enough money tolive of. So I hope that Inwill still enjoy it as.a hobby. And I hope tonhave planned my life so that I have at least one morning a week to enjoy my hobby

9.  What are your major breakthroughs and milestones in relation to your craft or in the industry you are with?

Most important thing I learned....let gonof the pressure that you have to scrap everything in life...it becomes an obligation not a hobby. ...let it go and scrap stuff you feel like. Let m go of the obligatory chronical timeline. Choose the photos that really inspire you.

10.  Describe yourself and your craft in one short phrase, word or sentence.

Scrapbooking is like life....very messy most of the time, but the result is great to remember
