Prima Marketing shabby layout

Hi !

Still writing from the mountain, where we had a great summery day yesterday, and snow this morning !

I have a shabby layout to share, made with mostly Prima Marketing products :

For once, you cannot find bright colors in this layout. The shabby style seems perfect for this lovely picture of my first newborn.
I used a 12x12 sheet of embossed chipboard (Prima), with papers (Fairy Belle collection), flowers and stamps (Prima), with gesso and pink paint, Vintega photo distress ink by Tim Holtz, leaves by I Am Roses, a pearled pin and laces by Maya Road. The title was cut with my Cricut.

You can see also metal embellishments from Istanbul and some pearl flourish by Want2Scrap. Take a good look at the embossed chipboard (above), I did highlighted the embossed pattern with a pink Copic marker.

Another close-up on the stamp work.

We just had a wonderful walk into the woods yesterday, gathering mushrooms with a beautiful and warm sun !
Stay put, I maybe will have snow fight pictures soon...

Bo Bunny chinese birthday card

Hello everyone !

I'm writing from my beloved mountain today ! In France, children have 2 weeks vacations every 8 weeks ! Crazy... Crazy weather too with 80F this week end, and snow coming for Wednesday !

Anyway, I want to show you a chinese birthday card I made a while ago, with the Bo Bunny's Serenity collection :

I love this sentiment !
The flower are printed  and cut Sakura, and the branch is hand drawed.

I hope you have a great Indian summer too ! See you soon !

A layout for the CMS challenge #72

Another great color challenge today with Color-Me-Scrappy !

As the twist was to include some wood, I choose to have a wood background from the Miss Caroline collection by My Mind's Eye. In fact I use only items from this collection in my layout : paper, stickers, stamp (see the colored roses on the right corner of the pictures ?). I really love this collection, but my stash of it is shrinking...

I hope I gave you some inspiration to play in this new challenge. Don't hesitate to take a look at the DT's creations for some more and come play with us !

Feeling Sketchy card challenge #105

Enough with fall colors (at least for today) ! I want blue skies and pink flowers ! And I will gave you these colors in the new card I made for the Feeling Sketchy challenge #105 !

Take a look a the sketch, you can see some differences...

I flip the sketch, the arrowhead is now a ribbon end and I have 3 flowers instead of one and 2 circles. But you can see the sketch, can you ?

You maybe recognize the paper's collection I used : Miss Caroline by MME. The sentiment's stamp is from the same collection. Flowers by I Am roses.

Molossi is our sponsor for this month and you could also win a RAK provided by Debi !

Hope to see you soon on the Feeling Sketchy blog !

October Once Upon A Sketch challenge

I'm very proud of the beauty I made for the Once Upon A... Sketch challenge this month !

Take a look at the sketch first :

and now my layout :

What can we find here ? Oh ! Surprise ! A K&Company paper (still Que Sera Sera collection)! But I did work on this one... Gesso, stamps (Prima Marketing and Inkidadinkado) with brown ink (Stazon), stencil (Want2Scrap), Shimmerz Texturez paint in Sandy Stone (look at the beautiful grain of the bricks), ocean ink spray (Mister Huey's), Lace (Hobby Lobby), a loosely braided twine (Recollections), I Am Roses flowers distressed with Colorbox ink and Prima Marketing chalk, and pink crystal sand !

Have some close-ups...

the loosely braided twine...

I'm still short on supplies since my moving hasn't left Aberdeen yet, so I did print the title and the journaling instead of looking in my stash for alphas and journaling spots.

See the layers ? Paper plus gesso plus stamp, plus stenciling, plus inking plus crystal sand !

Once upon a sketch have a bunch of sponsors with great prizes. I hope this layout can win one of them !

Have a good day !

Another Bella Blvd Fall card

I don't know for you but here, in the South of France, we have a wonderful Fall, with temperature around 80 today. Beautiful colors and sun. Perfect season. To stay into these colors, I have a card to show you, made with the Bella Blvd Totally Fall collection :

Small pumpkins, leaves and clouds are hand cut and mounted on foam squares to pop a little bit.

I hope I can soon scrapbook in my new room. My attic is now remodeled, it just miss one coat of paint and furnitures... I did take pictures of the whole process, I will show them when everything will be in place. Can't wait ! Scrapbooking on the kitchen table is a nightmare for me. I'm use to leave my work-in-progress on my desk (in fact several works) and scrap at different time of the day. Now it's just at night, after the kids are in bed. Less efficient...
Hopefully, I will have some time next week to hunt in Ikea for my perfect combination of furniture...

What will you like inside if you'll have the opportunity to furbish a new scraproom ?
