Goals & Journaling for More Than Words

Welcome 2019 ! 

Oh how happy I am to have 2018 done and over with...

What better way to start off a new year by setting up new goals and journaling about them. This month, I got out of my comfort zone and decided to play along in my Art Journal. 


My GOALS for 2019:
  • Exercise 4 days per week
  • drink 6 to 8 glasses of water per day
  • 1 week vacation as a family (harder now with young adults that are working)
  • Embrace changes ... at work, ...in my personal life... this is not always easy for me
  • BREATHE... you've got this.... Have  more confidence in my abilities and trust I can achieve my goals.
The JOURNALING part of the challenge was completed by using a bullet card ans hand writing my goals in my journal.

Here is the inspiration board for January:

Loved - Dusty Attic December challenge

What an amazing inspiration board on Dusty Attic blog, so happy to have some time off to get crafty today.

My boys are older and they seldom take pictures, I love this one of my youngest taken on a cold winter day with a friend and this adorable husky puppy. Just had to craft this picture for this challenge.


Here are a few close-ups of my cluster and embossed chipboards



And now the Dusty Attic moodboard and challenge link: HERE


I was inspired by the colors and although not a Christmas picture, this is a Christmas vacation picture.

Hope you enjoyed my take on this challenge,

Magique pour Cuts2luv & Mixed Media and Art

Noël arrive sous peu, je me suis amusée avec ce montage fait pour une amie. Le tableau d'inspiration  Cuts2luv et Mixed Media & art fut aussi en partie mon inspiration pour cette page.

Christmas is just around the corner and I had fun creating this layout for my friend. I was inspired by the Cuts2luv moodboard as well amd the MixedMedia and Art December challenge.


Voici quelques photos pour mieux voir les détails de la page:

Here are a few detailed pictures of my layout:



Une découpe de flocon sous le beau badge Joyeux Noël ajoute à la fantaisie de ce dernier:

The snowflake die-cut gives a great highlight to the Christmas Flair:


Un badge métallique DEER j'adore sur une page de Noël.

Metallic DEER, gotta love the Deers on Christmas Layouts:


Mon choix d'éléments du tableau d'inspiration: Combo couleur, Badge de Noël, Flocons et photo esprit des fêtes.



Here is the Mixed Media & Art Moodboard:


From this layout, I was inspired by the Blue, White & Grey colors of the board. I was inspired by the Christmas themed by using my pictures and my snowflake die-cut and finally the DEER, gotta love them. For the background, I used many types of embossing powders and stamping techniques to give details. I used the Blue woodgrain paper influenced by the wooden houses.


Merci pour votre visite et je vous souhaite de passer un joyeux temps des fêtes !

Believe and Stamping for More Than Words

It's December already and time for our last challenge of 2018

Here is my layout for the December challenge: Believe & Stamping



The inspiration for BELIEVE is my son Philippe. His persistance in school by doing a french summer class paid off, he proudly was able to graduate High School this year. Philippe is part of the many young adults in the Autism Spectrum Disorder. He believed he could graduate, he worked hard and was able to achieve the scores he needed for the mandatory french exam. We are so proud that he persisted and was able to achieve this goal.

The STAMPING part of the challenge is layers of stamping of words like BELIEVE, Dream on, Never say never, texture stamps on the background and heat embossed stamped flowers.

Here is a closer look at some areas:

This flair was just perfect... translation is: Being different is not a bad thing. Philippe might be different, but he is the most charming and sweet young man around.




I hope you like my take on the challenge, can't wait to see your entry this month.
