Hot off the press

25 February 2012

My Scrapbook Nook March kit:
Spring floated in on butterfly wings, dropping flowers where ever she paused and landed on an ancient wooden fence in front of a cottage full of scrap supplies, hidden away in a fairytale gloaming. Evoking all the gentle, blowy beauty of a early spring day, this kit will enchant the senses as you pair darling pinks and floral with charm infused, country inspired wood grain patterns. This kit is the perfect blend of cute and sophisticated, pairing girlish bows of twine and buttons with elegant velvet flowers and sassy hat pins. Featuring the lovely Miss Caroline collection by My Mind's Eye!

This week is collage week over on the Crate Paper blog. The first thing I thought of with collage was different patterns overlapping and that is what I tried to recreate in this layout. I used the Farmhouse collection and decided to focus on the yellows and blues in the line. I layered different patterned papers on tissue paper and stitched over some spots. To create more detail I used my text stamp on the base as well as on the collage. The last step was to create my photo cluster and add a few more details. I love this picture of Noé concentrating while studying for his exams. Since being diagnosed with AD it hasn't always been easy. He is so brave and works so hard! 
Le thème cette semaine "collage". J'ai décidé d'utiliser plusieurs papiers et de les superposés en ajoutant un peu de couture et des tampons. J'ai aussi créé des couches avec mon produit préféré: le calque. Une page en hommage à Noé qui travaille si dure malgré ses difficultés de concentration!

Eyes ...

23 February 2012

have so much to say. This picture of Annelie's daughter just jumped out at me because of those gorgeous eyes. Hence the title! 
Les yeux disent tellement de choses! Cette photo d'une petite d'une amie me parlait tellement justement à cause de ses yeux.

Products: Dear Lizzy Neopolitan! Swoon! 

 And a sneak peek of what is coming soon. Something completely different! 

Do you believe in fairies?

21 February 2012

Now what have fairies got to do with scrapbooking??? You'll see later on in this post!!! First some COLORSCONSPIRACY. I am really enjoying myself creating with this brand. I love the bold prints and colors. Very graphic and so much fun to work with. These are the latest layout and card I created using the same techniques. And just because I love making little tutorials I made one showing how I made the card. Ther is an English version and a French version. Check out the Colorsconspircacy blog and have a look at the gorgeous layouts made by my sweet friend Marinette and also the ubertalented Anna-Maria.
Pourquoi parler de fées, ça vous le saurez plus tard. D'abord une page et une carte faite pour Colorsconspiracy. J'adore cette marque avec ses papiers colorés et très graphique. Un réel plaisir de les utiliser!!! J'ai aussi fait un petit vidéo pour vous montrer les techniques utilisées sur ma page et la carte! En espérant que cela vous plaît! 



And what is this about FAIRIES:
 I am very lucky to have 4 healthy, gorgeous and extremely funny boys who brighten my life and make me very happy but sometimes I want to scrap something really girly! When I saw there was going to be another photo swap at My Scrapbook Nook I signed up and said I wanted to scrap girls. I got the most darling pictures from fellow nooker Annelie. This is my first layout for her with her daughter dressed up as a FAIRY. It couldn't have been any better. This is what I have always wanted to scrap: a sweet girl dressed up as a fairy. I can't get any girlier!!! 
Et voici la fée!!! Parfois il m'arrive de vouloir scrapper autre chose que mes quatres bonshommes. Ils sont tout pour moi mais j'ai parfois envie de faire une page très féminine! Sur le forum de My Scrapbook Nook nous avons organisé un "photo swap" (échange de photos) et j'ai reçu des sublimes photos de Annelie. Voici une première page avec une de ses filles déguisée en fée. Je ne pouvais pas rêver mieux!

At last I am starting to feel better. Still a slight headache and my hearing isn't 100% but it is a vast improvement. As I have nothing special to do I decided I would play a bit with my February kit from Studio Calico. Had an idea but it didn't turn out the way I expected it to. Not sure if I like it but had fun making it! 
Je commence à me sentir mieux, enfin!!! Comme j'avais un peu de temps j'ai décidé de chipoter un peu avec mon dernier kit de chez Studio Calico. J'avais une idée mais le résultat n'est pas vraiment ce que je souhaitais. Je ne sais pas si j'aime mais je me suis amusée!

Scraplift chain

16 February 2012

If you have dropped by for the swissGirlDesigns blog hop click HERE

On the My Scrapbook Nook forum we had a scraplift chain challenge. 3 teams and the first member is sent a layout to lift. This is layout is then sent to the next team member and so on. No one is allowed to show their layouts until the chain is complete. Well the challenge is still going on but some of the Dt members played along as well and those layouts have been shown so I can show you mine. I used the February kit. I really like my white backgrounds but I must say I also LOVE grey.

Un défi "scraplift chain" sur le forum de My Scrapbook Nook. Le défi n'est pas encore terminé mais les pages des membres de l'équipe créative ont été divulguée donc je vous montre ma petite page tout en October Afternoon. J'ai utilisé le kit de Février. 

I also made this card as Valentine's card for my husband using the Paper Heart collection from Crate paper. 

J'ai aussi fait une petite carte pour mon mari pour le Saint Valentin en utilisant le Paper Heart collection de Crate Paper.

Project Life

First post for today and it's about project life. I finally had some time to work a bit on it and can say I am up to date! I am really trying to keep it as easy as possible and I love putting everything together. It so me! Well, it's just my project life! So here we go. A lot of the photos lift up and underneath there's another picture or some journalling. I'm using all my stash and love  all the Sassafras goodies. They are so colourful and really add that little something I love. 
Premier post d'aujourd'hui avec mes pages pour Project Life. J'adore creer mes pages et elles me correspondent! J'ai collé les photos pourqu'on puisse les soulever et elles cachent souvent une autre photo ou un peu de journalling. 

See you later today for some fun!

And hearts and probably also butterflies are elements I just love using on my layouts. This one was made using the My Scrapbook Nook February kit and the Sunday sketch at Studio Calico. I used my distress inks to make everything jump off the layout. 
J'adore utiliser les nuages sur mes pages. Voici une faite avec le kit de Février de My Scrapnook Nook et le sketch du dimnche chez Studio Calico.
