Hi there! My name is Evita and together with my boyfriend I live nearby Rotterdam in The Netherlands. In my daily life I work as a digital specialist. Because of the amount of office hours, I have the need to work with my hands sometimes.

Crafting creative things, that’s what I love to do. You could say that my card making style is simple, yet elegant & creative. My favorite crafting phrase is “less is more”. You don’t need much to create something beautiful. I believe that’s actually one of the characteristics of creativity. In case you’re interested: I’ve dedicated a page to my main craft supplies.

about me, Evita from Crea Bea Cards
Evita from Crea Bea Cards

In November 2012 I started reading a magazine about mindfulness and creativity. It inspired me to start making my own greeting cards. It’s nice to buy a greeting card from the store, but it has much more meaning if it’s handmade. Plus it’s great to craft something for your beloved ones 😉

Family and friends reacted positively to the handmade cards. I then decided to start my blog, Crea Bea Cards, in early January 2014. Crea bea is a word in my native language (Dutch) which means creative person or something creative.

On the blog I share my card creations and write a tutorial about most of them. I hope to inspire people with my creations.

Other interests: movies, food, gardening, anime, guinea pigs, cats, birds, karaoke, PC games
