ColorConspiracy teams up with I lowe scrap

30 June 2012

There are some FABULOUS small scrapbooking businesses out there and two of them are ColorConspiracy and I lowe scrap. One is French the other Polish. Fresh, fun and that little bit different and that's what I LOVE!!! So what better way to celebrate them than by teaming up. Yes, both brands have become very close and the Design teams got to work with collections from both. FUN FUN FUN!!! From June 30th until July 3rd they will be sharing projects made by the DT girls. Stop by and check out their work. It's is FABULOUS!!!! Today the CC girls are up on the ILS blog. Here's the link!

J'adore ces deux marques. Un peu différente, très colorée et juste magnifique. Donc de quoi le plus logique que de se réunir. Pendant 4 jours CC et ILS vont vous présenter les créations des filles membre des deux DT. Deux marques qui se marient à merveille. Aller faire un tour sur le blog de ILS aujourd'hui car les filles de l'équipe créative de CC vous y attend.

For my layout I started by priming the cardstock with gesso. Then misted it using a mask, added some stamps, doodled and used the 6*31 strip from ILW. I also cut out the label from one of the journalling cards. I used a die cut and a badge from CC and I really love how it looks! 
Voici ma page. Beaucoup de gesso, mist et des tampons!


Summer videos 3 days to go...

29 June 2012

On Monday I'll be revealing my first video from my Summer Videos series. I'm having so much fun making these and hope you'll like them! And then there's  little announment I have to make. Today I'm officially on VACATION.  DIY here I come ,we've also planned our summer day trips and I'll be scrapping like crazy. Hoping to get lots of pics of my boys and work on my photography skills. I will be buying 2 new lenses and hope to put them to good use. I'll see you tomorrow! 

Here is a photo I took yesterday. My boys couldn't have been happier seeing this when they came home. I LOVE the view we have of the fields and they LOVE the tractors and machines that sometimes stop by!

For my Project Life I'm mainly using Sassafras products. I got one of their boxes a few months back and am so happy I did. While I was picking and choosing for PL I came across papers I just LOVE. The patterned paper here in the background is one of them. Wish I had more!!!!! So even though I have plenty of assignments waiting for me I just had to make this layout, just for fun. Using thread again. It comes and goes in phases.
J'adorait Sassafras et en faisant mon project life je suis tombée sur des papiers que j'adore. J'ai fait cette page pour le plaisir. 

As you can see I am doodling quite a bit on this one. Just fits with the papers! Oh Did you notice the badge. It is one of Sasha Farina's badges. Check her Etsy shop out because there are novelties and I'm sure you'll love them! 

Catching up

I started Project Life in January and kept taking pictures and jotting things down but never really got any further than week 6. Well I've been playing catch up and in two days managed to complete weeks 7 through to 16. Hoping to get weeks 17 to 22 done by Sunday. Then I'll have to get my pictures printed for the weeks that followed! Next year I'll do it again but I'll have to find an easier way. Maybe in art journal form. We'll see. So here are weeks 7 to 16 (weeks 8, 9, 10) have been saved for another occasion!). Using my Sassafras goodies. Boy do I miss them!

J'ai enfin eu le courage et le temps de m'attaquer à mon project life. Voici les semaine 7 à 16 (8,9,10 manquent car c'est pour plus tard!)

Oh and then a sneak of a layout I made but that I can't show yet. It must be one of my favourites to date!!!!!

The first photo lifts up to reveal another 2.

Oh not to forget my sneak! 

No yellow this time but PINK

24 June 2012

I made this layout a while ago and couldn't show as it had to go live first. As it was programmed for June 1st and didn't go live I am going to show it as it is also one of my American Crafts extra projects. Love the pink even though it is a page about my youngest son.

Une petite page faite il y a quelques temps mais il fallait attendre la publication sur un autre site mais qui n'a pas eu lieu donc je vous la montre ici. 

Supplies: Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection from American Crafts. Shop here.

Wishing you the best for the coming week.

Don't forget to check out my new FACEBOOK page dedicated to scrapbooking.

More Yellow

23 June 2012

But this time with American Crafts. I'm begging for summer to finally arrive. I'm sick and tired of the rain and the grey that has been lurking around here for quite some time. I really need sunshine and warm weather. Well still in summer mood though, so here's a layout I made for the SwissGirlDesigns blog using Rahel's stamps. I use them all the time!!!!! Got to dig into the Shoreline collection from AC. It just screams summer, sun and fun! I still had this photo of Damien with sunglasses and thought I'd put it to good use. At the time he was trying to play cool! Seems very serious. I burst out into laughing seeing the picture because he is the jolliest person around and can be extremely silly. 
Did you know you Rahel is looking for a new DT. Check it out here!

Summer is  here , at least that is what I keep telling myself. I hope it'll be sunny during the holiday period. No sun outside so I thought I'd make my own. Over at the Crate Paper blog it's Creative Weekly and this week is dedicated to SUNSHINE YELLOW. They are sooooo many shades of yellow in the Crate collections and they are all LOVELY. Here's my project. A wooden window frame that opens up (came from Au petit Bois.) I made it for my sister's daughter who is a little Miss Sunshine. On the inside little pockets into which they can put little notes or pictures. 
L'été est arrivé, j'espère! Voici un petit projet fait pour le blog de Crate Paper. Beaucoup de jaune pour inciter le soleil à sortir!

See you all soon.

(Winners announced in post below!!!)
Stickers!LOVE the remarks stickers from American Crafts. I use them on everything. This week on the AC blog it is Remarks stickers week. My projects went live yesterday! Check them out here and don't forget to comment as you can win some stickers!
J'adore les Remarks Stickers. C'est le thème de cette semaine chez AC. Allez faire un petit tour et tenter votre chance de gagner un lot de REMARKS. 

Here is my first layout. One of my sweet niece. I used some of the Dear Lizzy flutterbys and piled them up. What is nice about the stickers is that you can layer them and create your own embellishments. FUN!

Supplies: Indigo Inspiration Paper (35686) – Sketchbook, Scene Cascade (53341) – Thickers, Cascade Taffy (53342) – Thickers, Printed Chipboard Shapes (77290) – Bits, Palette Accent & Phrase Stickers (42240) – Remarks Books, Pigment Fabric Stickers (42241) – Remarks, Doodle Dimensional Stickers (42243) – Remarks, Dear Lizzy Premium Ribbon (58805) – Premium Ribbon

For this second project I had a hard time deciding which side of the patterned paper I was going to use. I loved both but only had one sheet. This is what I did:
J'ai eu difficile de décider quelle des deux côtés utiliser pour ma page et voici ce que j'ai fait:

I cut the border strip off, and cut the patterned paper as well .

 Then I flipped the top part and adhered the parts together (tape on the back , border on the front). 

And this is the finished product! 

Supplies: Indigo Inspiration Paper (35686) – Sketchbook, Scene Cascade (53341) – Thickers, Cascade Taffy (53342) – Thickers, Printed Chipboard Shapes (77290) – Bits, Palette Accent & Phrase Stickers (42240) – Remarks Books, Pigment Fabric Stickers (42241) – Remarks, Doodle Dimensional Stickers (42243) – Remarks, Dear Lizzy Premium Ribbon (58805) – Premium Ribbon
