On the list for Creative Embellishments

Hi bloggers, hard to believe that we are already December 30th, this means that this will be my last page for my mandate part of the Creative Embellishments team. This time, I was inspired by the Holidays and wanted to capture an activity that I do with my sons. Every year, we participate in the city wide gathering of food for many local organisations or families that have low income.  We go door to door and pick up the generous donation of our local residents. It's an amazing day.

I love playing with single colors, on this page I wanted a simple gold and white layout and just keep my picture with a pop of color.

I heat embossed my chipies with gold embossing powder.

The chipboards used for this page are the following:

I hope you've enjoyed my projects over the last 12 months. On my part, I've truly enjoyed the opportunity of being part of the Creative Embellishments team. It is a wonderful brand with amazing products and I truly want to thank Nicolle for allowing me to be part of her Creative Team and wish the 2018 team a wonderful continuation and lots of success.


Hush Little Baby pour Cuts2luv & Mixed Media & Art

En ce temps froid de Décembre on adore mettre les têtes de chevreuils sur nos projets, encore cette année, ils sont tellement à la mode. Aussi, Cuts2luv en a un qui est magnifique dans sa toute dernière collection, ce badge est la source d'inspiration pour mon projet.

Il y a 2 badges sur ma pages, un qui est l'inspiration, soit le chevreuil avec un motif répétitif et l'autre qui est niché sous ma découpe de chevreuil, un ombragé d'une collection antérieure.

Je craque pour le papier, la combinaison du brun, taupe, vert et bleu est parfait pour une page thématique chevreuil. Le papier et les chipboards (titre et câdres) sont de la compagnie Blue Fern Studios.

Les poudres à embossier de Blue Fern Studios sont: In the Navy qui a un effet métallique et Antique Gold. Les microbilles sont des Seedlings de Blue Fern Studio couleur argent.

Sous le titre, un petit jeu d'aquarelle avec mes spray Lindy's, ma couleur coup de coeur: Baby Blue Eyes Aqua

Le badge est de cette collection Paysages Magifiques:

La 2e source d'inspiration pour ce projet est le défi en ligne de Mixed Media & Art. Je me suis inspirée du sketch, des couleurs et du chevreuil.

Je souhaite que je vous inspire d'ajouter le chevreuil sur vos projets et je vous souhaite une magnifique journée !


Handmade Christmas Gift packages & Words & Paintery challenge entry

Good morning bloggers, Merry Christmas to all of you !

This year I was inspired to create for my crafty friends  a hand made gift wrapped package (trust I did not do all my gifts this way heheee)

I started with plain Kraft paper, then thru a stencil I added the Finnabair snowflake paste.

I heat embossed my chipboards the for the snow at the bottom, just added light and fluffy modeling paste. It was as simple as 1-2-3 but took 1h30 to complete both packages. 

I am taking this opportunity to enter this project into this challenge:

Words & Paintery December challenge

I know my crafty gals will enjoy this package, now here is to hoping that they'll want to open them on our crafty day together.

Happy Holidays to you all !

Christmas cards for Creative Embellishments

It's beginning to look like Christmas in our house. I love making Christmas cards, it is such a personal touch for our loved ones.

The many Creative Embellishments Christmas themed chipies makes it easy to create fun cards.

This first card I wanted to have the word Christmas, I heat embossed the title and ornament in Gold. I cut out the first part of the quote from a small word sticker I had to make one of my favorite sentences : Dreaming of a white Christmas

This second card I wanted to us a deer... They are so much fun to use this time of year. Again, I just heat embossed this one in gold. A touch of twine, a sentiment and I was done, a nice cute card.

Elements used on my cards are:

I hope you enjoyed my cards, thanks for stopping by !

Merry Christmas for Creative Embellishments

 It's that time of the year when we get into the festive mood. Every year I try to make a mini canvas for my mom, she is a huge fan of Christmas and loves decorating her home. This year I was inspired to make a 5 x 7 canvas with our December challenge image.

The starting point was to chose my colors for the background, I selected 3 tones of blue and one purple from my Dina Wakley acrylics.

I heat embossed the star tree and the Merry Christmas title. I chose to leave the deer natural.

Flowers are always nice to add to the artwork

The final touches are hints of Stickles for a shine effect.

Here is the challenge image:
