Let it Snow - Creative Embellishments DT

Oh my it's my turn again today to show you how I got crafty with my Creative Embellishment products.

The starting point is very important, in order to get a nice water color effect on your page, you need to ensure that it is coated with a this coat of CLEAR gesso. Once your clear gesso is dry, I use a paintbrush to apply my sprays or water colors. Then I take my brush and do some splatters with different intensity of the same color. Once that color is dry, I add white or diluted gesso the same way.

I liked how my chipboard looked on my background so I decided not to stain it, but wanted to give it a snow effect. So I added some touches of white gesso and the Prima snow effect paste.

Then I just added my ornaments

I love the effect it give the page.

Believe- Scrap the Girls entry

I had some crafting time with some friends the other day, it's fantastic to take a day off and just have nothing to do other than to scrapbook some memories.

For this page, I was inspired by the Selfie challenge at Scrap the Girls blog.

A fun Selfie that I took with 2 of my crazy colleagues when we visited Harry Potter World in Orlando Florida 2 years ago. I love that picture because it's a memory of a fantastic day, plus we see the platform 9 and 3/4 in the background. 

If you've not visited you are missing out on a lot of fun.

Some of my favorite elements on this page are:

The quote, the Cuts2luv Flair and the Prima flower:

I hope you enjoyed my take on the challenge, wishing all of you a MAGICAL day.


Sweet Girl

I love when I can combine work and play... 
This is one of my monthly projects for Creative Embellishments and it was inspired by the Lindy's Stamp Gang and More than Words March challenges.
I've had this picture of my friends beautiful daughter for a while now, I just loved the Smash the cake photo shoot she did for her daughter's first birthday. Wish that concept existed 18 years ago (sniff..). 

 This Smash the cake picture is perfect for the Lindy's challenge don't you think?

I wanted a classy but fun look for this page, and really wanted to use texture to give some of the feeling of that cake frosting.

I started by applying molding paste thru a flower stencil, then added 2 different colors of similar hues of my Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays. I've mentioned it before, but in case you missed it, I add my sprays with a paint brush to have better control of my prays. I used two of the colors of the March color combo for Lindy's Stamp Gang.

Now the smash the cake was for her 1st birthday, so I wanted to ensure I would have the Happy Birthday small words on the page. I struggled on where to place it for a while, then it took place. I wanted to add just a few touches of black to add some dimension, so I also added this beautiful embossed half butterfly it was the perfect touch and a suggestion from the More than Words March challenge.
Notice also the small frame underneath, they have become my favorite chippies and go on all my projects, I just can't get enough of theses small frames. For the candy effect, the art stones worked perfectly and really take the color of the stains. Love this effect.

Now for a few more pictures...

Ohhh the 3 inch clock chipboard, another recent favorite:

And last but not least, this beautiful Sweet Girl Chipboard title, I just love it simply embossed in white.

My smash the cake picture is just perfect for this challenge don't you think?

The challenge:
Word Inspiration - BEAUTIFUL
Creative Challenge - BUTTERFLY

That was easy, Have you seen this girl, she is just a stunning Princess, and how cute is she in this picture? She truly was the inspiration for my page. I also found that the colors of this picture resemble the one of the challenge board.

Again, that was easy, love my chipboard butterfly. The black touch makes it stand out.

I hope you enjoyed my take on these challenges



Today - Cuts2luv

Purple... so not a color that I craft often even though I love it.

At the office before Christmas, as a fund raising event for Centraide, we had a photo shoot event. It was a fun day. That being said, I hate having my picture taken, but it was for a good cause. Lucky for me I was actually able to get a few good shots in...

My starting point was my desire to test out the new Lindy's Stamp gang shakers. Trust me that I have fallen in love and now want every single color !

Then I added some purple stamping with my Archival inks and some embossed purple hearts.

This flair from my Cuts2luv collection was perfect with the ombre effect. Love how it goes from light purple to blue. I truly enjoy placing flairs with my flowers.

Are you familiar with Cuts2luv? My besty Caroline started this local brand a few years ago. She was the 1st to manufacture flairs in Quebec and she always comes out with unique ones. Some are hand painted images done by our friend Valerie.

Here is the lonnk to her store, she is a sweatheart, I am certain you will fall in love with her products:

The one I used is from this Ombre Heart collection. Notice that the colors on this one can change slightly, but they will be amazing.

I hope you enjoyed how I played around with Purple today... Thanks for stopping by !

Misère que le temps passe trop trop trop vite.

Un petit badge d'une vielle collection Cuts2luv que j'avais hâte d'utiliser. 

Le surnom de mon fils est 'MINOU' alors je n'ai pas été en mesure de résister d'utiliser cette étampe de Tim Holtz. Elle est just trop drôle.

Vous aimez les badges??? Les plus beaux sont ici dans la boutique Etsy the Cuts2luv.

Je vous souhaite une super journée !
