March DCWV Stack-a-holic sketches



Hi everyone !

The Guest DT played with the new sketches from the DCWV blog for the March Stack-a-holic challenge, and I did play too with the second sketch :


Here is my card :


I find that the creamy May Art Ribbons were the perfect fit for the bright and gorgeous fushia canvas of the DCWV card, and the bronze chain and beads by Blue Moon Beads made a nice balance to the bright color.


The sentiment is an acrylic stamp by Maya Road. I also add flowers and leaves by I Am Roses.

The top 10 entries will be featured on the blog and 4 of them will be chosen for a prize !
So don't hesitate and play with those sketch. Take a look at the other DT creations for more inspiration !

See ya !

DCWV baby mini album new release !

Hi everyone !

Did you know that DCWV had a bunch of new releases these days ? I was lucky enough to get my hands on a cute mini I used to create an album for for pictures of my daughter when she was a baby.
This mini is very versatile, with 19 pages, 26 cut outs, washi tapes and embellishments, and 4 additional pocket pages. I made some modifications to the original arrangement of pages, and use some of them to create mat for photos and new embellishments.

Here is my cover :

I add Prima Marketing flowers, brads and ribbons to personalize this cover.
On the first page, I add a shape cut out of another page for the title, and used paper from another one to mat the picture.


On the next picture, you can see one of the pocket page, where you can keep memorabilia. Picture is matted with paper from another page.


I didn't have much time to take pictures of this cute album before leaving for my snow vacation, but I will show you later more of it when I get back...

Don't forget to take a look at all the great new items DCWV is presenting these days !
See you soon...

Scrapping Clearly mini album

Hello everyone  !

I'm here to show you what you can do with the beautiful albums made by Scrapping Clearly !
I did work with the circle album and the Urban Market paper pack by Teresa Collins and ended up with this project :



This album has 4 pages, and you will find a lot of stickers and designs that you can cut inside the pack in addition to the beautiful 12x12 papers. Beside ribbons from my personal stash, I use a clear stamp with silver opaque Stazon to create the border on the edge of the first page.


Double-side papers work great with clear album, and you can play by layering them on both side !







You know me, I love fussy cutting, and that what I did with the blue flowers.



And the last page, where I used a Lucky8 doily punch by We R Memory Keepers. I adhered the black paper on the other side of the clear page to add dimension to the white lace.


I hope I did give you some ideas to make your own album. Have fun !

Mardi Gras mask


Today it's Mardi Gras ! 
Do you know where this tradition come from ? It's the last of the fat day before Lent. In France, we celebrate it mostly now with a costumed parade ending by burning the Carnival king. In Venise, they have a very fancy parade with gorgeous costume and beautiful mask.

So today I will present you a mask created in the Venice's spirit :



I started by covering a chipboard mask (Decopatch) with white gesso and aqua tissue paper, adding some aqua glitter glue and Liquid Pearls. Lots of flowers (mostly Prima Marketing), covered with gold and turquoise paints (Plaid) and glitter glues. 



The metal embellisments are covered in gold with a gold pen.



Will you wear it ? I like it so much, I can't image my daughters wearing it for Carnival !

Happy Mardi Gras (for all of you feasting today) !

At least I can reveal...

I made my way to the Canvas Corp Brands Design Team ! Isn't it incredible ? But you maybe have already guessed, seeing me creating a little more with Tattered Angels, 7Gypsies or Canvas Corp products... Anyway, even if you had guess, you didn't see my brand new blinkie on the right side bar...

I still can't believe I'm on this incredible crew, so many talented crafters there ! I do the happy dance everytime I'm thinking of it...

CCB has asked every crew member to create a project with a 4x4 canvas, reflecting their personality and sensibility. You can find these projects here, and you will find mine at spot #42. You will also be able to vote for your favorite. I hope you will vote for me ;-)

Here is a bigger picture of my project :


 It was so not the project I had in mind at first ! I had a pretty and clean idea, but then I thought "that's not what I want to represent me" and ended up with a messy, colorful canvas with flower... Yep, that's me.
Take a closer look ...

Here is what I used :
- 4x4 canvas by CCB
- paper from Postale collection by 7Gypsies
- Tattered Leather glimmer mist by Tattered Angels
- Barn Red glimmer mist by Tattered Angels
- Bahama Blue glimmer mist by Tattered Angels
- Caspian Sea glimmer glam by Tattered Angels
- modeling paste by Liquitex
- fondant mold by Wilton (the leaves)
- White air dry clay by Martha Stewart
- white gardenia by I Am Roses
- journaling stickers


Don't forget to stop by the Creative Studio to take a look at all the beautiful Valentine's card made by the Creative Crew (can you spot mine ?) and be inspire to create one yourself ! You could win a $50 gift card into the CCB store by pinning your favorite cards !
