About Romy:

My name is Romy Veul and I am a 20-year old girl from The Netherlands. I live in a village close to Amsterdam together with my parents, my twin brothers and our cats. By day I study Dutch language & Linguistics in Amsterdam, but at night I am a scrapbooker and cardmaker at heart. I have been scrapbooking for approximately 7 years now and I have enjoyed every little bit about this wonderful creative outlet. I have always been creative in some way (jewelry making, 3D cards etc.), but scrapbooking seems to be the perfect combination of my passion for creativity, photography and journaling.


When I am not scrapbooking, I love to spend time with friends and family. I also like shopping, playing badminton and reading. And of course I go rarely anywhere without dragging my beloved camera with me. A scrapbooker should be always ready to capture the special moments, right? Being part of the Graphic 45 team is a dream come true to me. I have always loved this company, not just because of its amazing products but also because of the wonderful people behind this brand. I can really see that the products are designed with so much love and passion. It is always a delight to work with these products and make them suit my style and photos. I look forward to what is going to be an amazing year as a DT member for this wonderful company.


Romy's Blog:




We begin today's introduction with this stunning layout featuring A Ladies Diary that Romy created. You can see how beautifully she layered the papers from A Ladies' Diary and added a few pretty fussy cut elements to give this LO extra dimension. The gorgeous central photo only adds to the charm and sophistication of this classy work of art! Here is what Romy had to say about it!

"A Ladies Diary is feminine and elegant and thus one of the collections that I just can't stop working with. On this layout I did a lot of fussy cutting to adorn this photo." -Romy

Next we have this gorgeous layout featuring An ABC Primer. Beautiful paper layers and fussy cut elements mingle in this exquisite creation. The colors in the photo seem to blend seamlessly with the colors in the gorgeous papers and embellishments! All of the amazing layers help to give this creation its own unique look of joy and nostalgia. We also love the subtle stitching and paper distressing that add the perfect vintage charm to this LO!

Here we have an absolutely adorable Little Darlings layout that Romy made. Again you can see her classic paper layering and delicate fussy cutting techniques. There is so much love in this sweet LO! It's like a beautiful bouquet of happy memories! Here is what Romy had to say about this heartwarming work of art!

"Little Darlings is one of the most gorgeous baby collections that I have seen so far. It actually makes me want to have a new baby in our family, just so I have another subject to scrap about with this collection. But for now this photo of my niece Elise seemed to with it quite well too. These papers kind of worked themselves when I created this lay-out. I arranged lots of fussy cut items around the photo, while still trying to keep Elise the main focus of my layout." -Romy

Lastly we have this amazing French Country card that Romy made. All of today's crafts were part of Romy's audition in the final round of the Graphic 45 Design Team call. You can see how much time and effort went into creating these superb crafts! This elegant French Country card definitely captures the lively charm of this beautiful collection. This is a great card for any occasion! You can see how Romy added pretty layers, paper distressing and a few fussy cut elements and embellishments to give this card the perfect look. What a wonderful inspiration! Here is what Romy had to say about this splendid card!

"French Country was a true must-have for me. Its sunny colours and sunflower patterns are perfect for a summer inspired card. I cut out some sunflowers and a red frame and used them as the focal point on this card." -Romy

I like Romy's style. Beautiful and inspiring.

I'm thrilled to see that Holland's got this much talent!
Yhanks for your inspirational work Romy!!

I'm really enjoying Romy's work...layers, yes, but not too cluttered. Her work is easy on the eyes. Thank you so much for choosing her for this year's DT! Looking forward to winning this week's product package...fingers are crossed!

I just love Romy's work! I remember her, too, from last year's top 30. I recall being so impressed with her talent, especially being just 18 at the time. She does such pretty work and I look forward to seeing what beautiful things she will create next!

Extremly detailed layouts. Beautiful work.
Tell me though where in the world do you put all the fussy things that you make?????
I don't have enough room or the need to over dress my house as you Americans seem to do. I really would like to know.

Romy is AMAZING!! I have always loved her and her style!!!!

ROMY........is AWESOME!!! I've been admiring all her amazing projects this whole last year. What a great inspiring day you gave us!!!! Thanks so much.


The layouts and card are absolutely gorgeous, and I love that Romy kept the supply list short. These are keepers!

These are gorgeous! Love the layouts!

Such beautiful pieces. Love them all, but the one with the music score in the background really caught my eye!

Lots of inspiration here, Romy!! Wonderful LO's that tempt me to make something similar; I'm a card maker and not a scrapbooker but I have done a couple of LO's for framing a special photo. Greetings and continued success!!

These all look gorgeous! Thank-you for sharing ideas. Nicola x

How fresh, beautiful and such use of so many paper together. Love them all.

I am so excited to have each of the new (and previous) designers works of art. I love looking at each design and how different they all are. Congratulations to all of you and G45.

Love the Mother Goose Graphic 45 papers!!! Can't wait for it, and I am already getting ideas on how to use it for crafting! Thanks for sharing.


The projects are beautiful! Love the new Graphic 45 Mother Goose packet . . . can't wait for it to be available!!! Thanks for sharing all.


I'm so glad to see that Romy made the DT. I've been impressed by her work in the past. Hard to believe she's only 20 years old.
