Cherish (Prima)

Dear crafty friends,

Today, on the Prima Blog, we feature stencils. 

I love Finn’s new stencils! The patterns are just so intricate and detailed. 

They are perfect for adding subtle texture on the background of any creation. 

For this layout, I chose the Tapestry stencil, that I used with Modeling Paste and I brushed Soft Satin Metallique paint over the pattern. 

I also used the Wild Berries with a sponge and Adobe House ink, just to add a soft pattern.

I love the end result. 

My son chose the collection and the papers for this layout. I think he did pretty good, don't you?


Thanks for looking,
Have a nice crafty day,

A Pink Layout (Prima)

Hello peeps,

It's been a long time since I've updated my blog. My life had been crazy those days, so I'm not as present online. But anyways, here is a layout I made for the pink inspiration on the Prima blog today.

I’m not a huge fan of pink layouts. I often have a lot of difficulties to work with this color. This time, I figured that I could use a dusty pink (in French, we say «vieux rose») and it was enough to spark my creativity. 

It inspired me to use this vintage photo of my aunt and her mother. Dusty pink is her favorite color.

I used the beautiful Lavender Frost collection. I love the more neutral backgrounds in that collection. They are the perfect background for about every layout!

Today is a Gift (7 Dots Studio)

Dear crafty friends,

It's November 1st, which means it's time for a new challenge at 7 Dots Studio.

I created this layout for it.

This challenge was so out of my comfort zone! The colors are not what I would normally use, but I thought that they were so beautiful together.

I decided to  mix the Yuletide collection with the Homegrown collection. 

I also used a stencil from the Northern Lights collection and stamps from Dreamscapes dans from Garden Party. 

I think that the end result is pretty coherent, even though I mixed all those elements from different collections. I really hope you’ll give this moldboard a try.

Flowers and mediums are by Prima Marketing. 

Have a great day.

A True Love Story (7 Dots Studio) - Process video

Hello crafters,

Karine is here today to share a layout made for 7 Dots Studios and a process video. 

When fall arrives here, I tend to go back inside, to drink some hot tea and to read books. That’s the mood I was trying to capture in my layout. I was inspired by Mixed Media & Art's beautiful moodboard

Something warm and book inspired… I went for an older collection, Writer’s Block. I love the prints of this collection. I chose the Note paper for my background. It was perfect for what I had in mind.

I created a mixed media background over which I layered some papers pieces from the Torn paper and lots of embellishments and texture… 

I just love how everything turned out.

I have a process video for you to see. I hope you enjoy it.

7 Dots Studio supplies:
Dreamscapes - Geometry Stencil
Thoughts Keeper - Clear Stamps
Writer’s Block - Letters Stencil

Have a nice crafty day,
