Revlie Schuit’s Jump Start

CJSLogo_500

I met Revlie Schuit many years ago in the Netherlands when we both visited a workshop and ever since we kind of cross our ways over the internet. Revlie has a wonderful style and she is super supportive -check out what she has for you today.

revlie

Hallo hallo hallo! I am Revlie from the Netherlands, and so happy to meet you!

let me introduce myself a bit:
Revlie Schuit – 38 years – blond gone red – live with hub Arjan and our 2 muppets: Sanne (9, girl) and Ruben (5, boy) – Netherlands – company owner – stubborn but o so sweet – chocolate – Vichy handcream – imac – colors, lots of! – handmade – running – scrapbook – sew – crochet – paint – mixed media canvasses – art journal – tulips- pinterest – blogging – i don’t do well when i eat carbs – i should go to bed more early than i do now – and i’m clumsy – that about sums it all up …

In the daytime my hub & me run our company for Secretarial Services together. And of course we chase after Sanne & Ruben trying to raise them :).

In the nighttime I work on REVolution. I’m working hard to become a fulltime creative business owner. And for me, with all dreams, i know i can be that fulltime artist. I’m going for it, and everyday i feel more happy about the status i’m at. Remember: you can be anything you want!

I love to create vibrant & colorful mini albums, canvasses or crochet projects. In my Etsy shop you can find lots of fun tutorials for creating these mini albums or patterns for my crochet ideas and lovely mixed media postcards & prints! The tutorials are usually over 40 pages of very step-by-step how to instructions and filled with at least 50 pictures of the complete mini album / crochet project. If you are a beginner or already know your way, both can use the tutorial! I love to work with fabric, felt, embroidery floss, transparencies, scrapbooking supplies and crochet handmade embellishments.

On my blog you can find free tutorials, lots of projects, layouts, mini albums and fun video’s of my progress.

i so love to teach other people that they can TOO be creative. i get this a lot: “yes, YOU can make that, because you are very creative, but i’m not…”. seriously peeps. STOP saying that. i’m NOT more creative than anybody else on this world. i simply nurture my creativity. i feed it. i embrace it. everybody is creative in its own unique way. you just HAVE TO LET GO of the feeling to be perfect (what’s perfect anyway?) and GIVE yourself the beauty of creating. trust me, it’s so worth it. let go of those negative feelings. just start and let the flow of creating brings you places. it really is such a wonderful way of living.

Besides feeling the need to be creative on a daily basis, I’m a choc-aholic, I talk too much and I laugh too loud, I bite my nails when I’m nervous (yes I know…), I’m stubborn if something is in my head, you will not get it out– you can bribe me with wine & chocolate though 😉

For the official part: I’ve designed for different Scrapbooking Manufacturers (as Scenic Route, American Crafts, 24heures37, ColorConspiracy), I wrote articles for Dutch Scrapbooking Magazine, I still write articles for EntreArtistes (a French scrapbooking magazine), I’ve been published in Creating Keepsakes, Scrapbooks Etc, Simply Handmade and multiple other magazines. I teach workshops mini-albums and creating mixed media canvasses in my studio at the office and I’m currently working on a 4 week e-course for creating mixed media canvasses. My way.

    Lovely, lovely albums! Funny, a couple days ago my cousin and had the idea to make a fabric mini-album for her son! Seen what you’ve done, I’m even more eager to start! I question though, how did you punch the holes in your album (for the binding)? Did you use a crop-a-dile or similar (I was afraid it wold tear the fabric)?
    Thanks for sharing!

  55. Very Inspirationl! I love the look of fabric embellishments but my sewing skills are limited, so the idea the stitching does not have to be perfect, well, is perfect for me! The mini album I am just starting is a canvas one by Maya Road and I will be incorporating some of your ideas…thank you so much for all the great ideas.

  116. Mary Anne Perlmutter says:

    Your albums are beautiful…as are your children!! I have not even looked at my stash of fabric since playing with paper…thanks for the inspiration!!

  123. Sew sweet! Love your Albums! Thanks for sharing…Judith, Texas

  124. Absolutely perfect! This is exactly what I was looking for to make for my grandmother who had a stroke last year. I wanted to make her a mini album that she could hold onto, but not worry about ruining it since she has some tremors. She also can’t hold her eyes open so feeling it would be good too. Your albums are so happy! The felt you use, does it come on a bolt or the craft sheet size? Thanks for sharing!

    • hi Kellie, oh, this would be perfect for her! i buy in bulk from the wholesale, but i sometimes buy the craft sheet size (like letter size, right?). sometimes my mini-albums are all different sizes, but i do try to make the most out of my piece of felt. so buy it the way you can cut the most pages (or embellishments) from it 🙂 have fun!

  125. wonderful and thank you, oh so very much!!

  126. Janet Firth says:

    thank you for sharing your creative gift with us!

  131. Wonderful! This reminded me how gentle and wholesome a fabric book can look and feel and I want to make one now. I don’t sew so thank you for the inspiration to just glue it on to chipboard

  132. Great albums, Revlie! You gave me lots of good ideas for using fabrics in ways that I usually just use papers. Thanks!!

  190. Evelyn R. says:

    Your albums are great, and the best part they speak from your heart. I used to embroider a lot, but think now I may incorporate some into greeting cards with fabric and may even try to do an album. The felt and fabric are very portable, and a person could that part of your project in your purse and work on the sewing part while you are waiting in a doctor’s office or while riding in a car. (Not good if you’re driving.) Thanks for sharing.

  191. Love, love,love your beautiful albums – really inspiring – thanks 🙂

  192. Thank you for sharing your very personal books. They reflect you and your life.
    I also liked how well the rings worked, both aesthetically and practically, with the fabrics.

  193. I loved seeing your albums with the fabric & felt they were very creative I sew but its usually clothes that would be a great way to use some of my left overs as I don’t quilt

  194. LOved! Loved, Loved this video. I’ve been doing a lot of embroidery stitches in my pages lately. Just love it. Loved the birdie and puffy flower and heart embellishments. Your mini-albums are Fabulous!

  195. Super cute!!! How you print your photos in canvas?? With normal printer is it possible??

    • hi Sara,
      i’ve a Epson Stylus R1900 photoprinter. yes i know spoiled :). and canvas works perfect (for instance sticky back canvas from Claudine Helmuth). With normal printers i have no idea, but you could try it. remember to set your printer to thick paper. or maybe you should contact the printer manufacturer to find out? don’t want you to ruin your printer 🙂 xx Rev

  196. dank je wel voor het tonen van jou werkstukken, zal toch eens wat vaker textiel/vilt gaan gebruiken bij mijn mixed media art

  197. your albums ae so delightful-love all the embellishing and stitching!

    I so enjoyed watching this video and listening to your voice…full of happiness and energy. You have given me the idea of using fabric on chipboard (which I never thought of before). Merci for this idea.

  201. Your albums are gorgeous. I like making albums but have not used fabric- now I would like to try. Sorry you have FM. I too have been diagnosed with the same. It was good to know what was causung the pain. I am determined to carry on though doing what I enjoy doing. Learning to cope, live with it and manage it. Anne x

    Thank you for sharing your ideas, Revlie! I have a little stash of chipboard books that I collected when they were on sale. Now, I am inspired to get them out and play. Your kids are going to love those books when they get older.

  203. Revlie, I think these are quite possibly some of the cutest ideas, ever! Love how you incopoorate all the different textures into your albums. Your childrens’ children will love them for years to come. Thank you for sharing your wonderful techniques.

  204. Bea Arreola says:

    Your albums are wonderful! I will have to try this!! Thanks for the new ideas (for me)!

    I love working with felt. I’ve never used it in scrapbooking, but you’ve given me incentive!

  206. I love all the fabric and embroidery!

  207. First I loved your albums , I swear I am addicted to making journals and albums except I do not fill them and enjoyed seeing how you fill yours! I went to your Blog and am so sorry you have been diagnosed with Fibro,, I have had it for about 20 years now and though I am in pain everyday I have learned to deal with it for the most part and have learned what things trigger a flare and what keeps it under some semblance of control! I smiled when I read your comment about Balance as this is the key, learning not to set unrealistic goals for yourself and stressing out when it flares!Exercise, sunshine and a regular sleep cycle do wonders for me. All the best in your search for ways to control yours we are all different but you can live a good life even with it if YOU are in Control!

  208. Thank you so much for putting this video together and showing us these sweet albums. I have done some fabric pages before but was never really happy with them. I like the idea of using felt in between the layers of fabric (or using canvas) to give them some body. I love the puffy heart embellishment!

  209. I really enjoyed your presentation today, Revlie. You have a beautiful heart & I really like your style! May the Lord continue to bless you on your journey to healthy living. ❤

  210. Very inspiring 🙂

  211. I love the way you have incorporated fabric, felt and embroidery! I don’t do mini albums, but I can see making embellishments for cards, gifts and mixed media! thanks for the inspiration!

  212. The things you make are sooo cute and wonderfull, love, love, love it! Thank you for sharing!
