Snowy scrapbooking layout

Hi everyone !

I'm so in Winter mood right now ! In few days I will travel to one of my favorite place on Earth and right now it looks exactly like the picture I scrapbooked ! Small French village in the Alps, waiting for me to grab my snowboard ! 
Well, with this snowy feeling, I had to create a page, so I made one for the Art Anthology blog :

I started by building my layout with a Craft Smith paper pad from last year, Warm Colorations spray to ink the edges and Mud paste to create the snow effect. Also used the Mud paste with the Gothic stencil to add dimension to the background.

You know my love of fussy cutting...So yes I cut the snowflakes and the branches by hand for the pad... The doilie is an element cut with a die.
The title is made with Silver Metal Effect medium and Expressions stencil.

If you want to know more about my creative process, you can watch my video tutorial here or on my YouTube channel (BonjourScrapValerie) :

I will be quiet for some times (unless I broke a leg and came back earlier...), but I already have a new project in my sleeve for you. So be patient, I will be back anyway !

Thank you for your time, I wish you a good Monday !

2019 : Happy New Year card

Hello everyone !

I finally made a card for the New Year card and it's my new project for the Art Anthology blog :

I embossed a white cardstock with the Basket Weave embossing folder (Sizzix), and then sprayed it with Sterling Fairy Dust 

Stars were made with the Twilight stencil and the Silver Metal Effect medium. I created splatters of ink with Stargazer Minx and Sterling Fairy Dust all over the cardstock.

I stamped the big stars with Dina Wakley star stamps, in gray ink, and embossed them with silver embossing powder.
I added white twine colored with the same blue and silver inks than before and a tiny jingle bell to finish this card.

You can watch the complete process in this new tutorial video :

Thank you for stopping by today, and once again : Happy New Year !
Have a great day...
