DCWV September sketch layout

Hi crafter fellows !

Here comes my first layout of this month, along with the DCWV sketch challenge !

This September sketch from www.pagesmaps.com is very versatile and fun to use :


This sketch shout "stitching" to me the first time I saw it, and of course I had to put flowers and pink everywhere ! I had a lot of fun fussy cutting all these embellishments... (roses, words, bubble speech...).


Everything on this layout came from the Hello Darlin' stack (was on my last DCWV DT box), except for this tiny "I love you" tag on the right of the picture. I cut it from a border by Bella Blvd.

You will have until the 30th of September to send your layout (or your card, I will show you my sample tomorrow, stay tune). You could be featured in the DCWV blog and/or be picked for a random prize ....

See you tomorrow !

Feeling Sketchy sketch #128

Hello everyone !

School started yesterday in France and I cannot tell you how glad I am... I have so many projects waiting for me !
So for the first project of this new school year, I will show you the card I made for the Feeling Sketchy challenge :


Looks like a Valentine's card... Am I too early ? Nah !
I used a red paper from the Old World stack (DCWV), a denim fabric on paper (DCWV), lace and cord found at Hobby Lobby and Making Memories eyelets. And a tiny sticker from an old Spring specialty sticker stack (DCWV) for the sentiment.

Try to make something with this sketch :

and upload it to enter the drawing for the prize from our sponsor Deedee's Digis :


See you soon for another project !

Altered phone case video tutorial

Well my friends, I finally made a video for a complete project ! Can you believe it ? I still have to improve my video skills, but I would appreciate if you take a look at it. Here is a picture of the final project :


I used a lot of glimmer mists (Olive Vine, Tattered Leather and Red Barn), 7Gypsies paper and tissue tapes, Prima Marketing flowers and stamp, along with lace and metal embellishments.

You can watch the full video on YouTube or here :



I hope it will inspire you to refurbished your old phone case...

Have a nice day !

Prima August BAP sketch challenge

Hello scrappy friends !

Despite the heat and my children, I did manage to create something for the August BAP challenge...
I took a lot of old Prima flowers out the closet for this layout, and used gesso and glimmer mists on them to match my papers :



First, I built my background with a Prima Marketing paper by using 3 masks (Prima) with a pen (Faber-Castell), and misting around Gold glimmer mist (Tattered Angels). Some Vintage photo distress ink (Ranger) on the edges, drops of Tattered Leather glimmer mist (Tattered Angels), and stamp (Prima Marketing).

Some close-ups :


Teared brown paper (Prima Marketing) with stamped modeling paste and Tattered Leather mist to add some dimensions.


All of the embellishments have been covered with gesso and misted : laces (Prima), wood veeners (Prima and other), flowers (Prima).


This layout took me some times, but I'm very pleased with the results.

See you soon...
