hosted by Charlene and Ilse (IKmetliefde) – Dutch spoken videos


Yes, that's nice that it's free, but what is JournalWithUs now? Because honestly, free of course does not automatically mean that something is very cool. So, JournalWithUS what is that? Every month Charlene van der Laar and IKmetliefde make inspiring videos for you. Completely in the theme of that month. This year each month has a color as the theme, and next year there will be new themes.

Each month

JournalWithUs is of course also the place to be if you want to be the first to see the sneaks of new ArtJournal Specials . Those are the really cool products that Charlene and I design for Elizabeth Craft Designs. In short, a party in your inbox every month.

Don't confuse JournalWithUs with Jurnalised, these are two different projects.

They are of course from the ArtJournal Specials. The gorgeous products which Charlene and Ilse design for Elizabeth Craft Designs. If you are not familiar with the ArtJournal Specials yet, take a look at and discover the best stamps, dies, stencils and of course that very cool paper!
