Two cards for Prima Marketing

Dear crafty friends,

I'm here today to share two cards I created for Prima. I used the beautiful Sweet Peppermint collection by Frank Garcia.


I love the soft color palette from this collection. It's different from the traditional red and green color combo.


I chose two chipboards from the Chipboards & More pack from the collection as the main focal point of my cards. I love the sweet vintage images.


Of course, I had to embellish with flowers! All flowers come from the Sweet Peppermint flowers pack.


To complete the look, I also used Art Ingredients: Silver and Blush Micro Beads as long as Art Stones and Mini Art Stones


On each one of my card, I used an Accent Scrapbooking flair badge. I would like to enter the challenge they propose on their Facebook group, as the colors of my cards fit perfectly with their moodboard. Here it is.

Believe in Magic (7 Dots Studio)

Dear crafty friends,

I'm here today to share a layout I created for 7 Dots Studio.


I started with the Dreamscapes 9mm 12x12 paper.


On it, I created a mixed media background using inks, pastes and sprays.


I also used the Hazy Days Clear Stamps, the Dreamscapes Clear Stamps and the Thoughts Keeper Clear Stamps with black ink.


For my paper cluster, I used papers from the Dreamscapes 6x6 Pad and tags from the Dreamscapes 12x12 Tags.


To embellish my layout, I used the Dreamscapes 6x12 Word Stickers, the Dreamscapes Die-cut Elements 6x12 and the Dreamscapes Element Stickers 6x12.


I also used a few flowers.


And one of the UmWowStudio Dreamscapes Tell Tall Tales Flair.

Spread your Wings (7 Dots Studio)

Dear crafty friends,

I'm here today to share a video tutorial I created for 7 Dots Studio. I couldn't resist using the brand new Paint Chips collection. Dee Dee created magic once again!


I chose the beautiful Nightshade 12x12 paper.


I created a mixed media background using the Hatched stencil and some graphite texture paste.


I also used the Paint Chips Clear Stamps with black ink and with gold embossing powder.


I created a paper cluster with papers from the 6x6 pad and tags from the 12x12 Tags.


I decorated my layout with flowers and flair badges.


I also added a few chipboard pieces from 2Crafty Chipboard.


I used the Paint Chips 6x12 Element Stickers and the Paint Chips 6x12 Die-cut Elements, to add some yellow around my cluster.


My title comes from the Northern Lights 6x12 Word Stickers sheet. I thought the colors matched pretty well my layout.

I filmed my process for you to see it.

You Shine (2Crafty Chipboard)

My dear crafty friends,

Is it really the middle of November yet? I can't believe time flies that fast! I almost didn't make it this month for my monthly share, but I managed to steel a few hours to create two layouts that I share with you today. The first one is called «You Shine». I used the beautiful Zella teal collection from Prima.


I started out with the Circle Lace Panel. I cut it in a few pieces and I embossed those with black embossing powder.


Next, I selected the beautiful Leafy Shrub Set 2.


I used all three pieces on my layout, amongst my flower clusters.


I covered them partially with dark teal embossing powder, leaving the raw chipboard showing in a few places. I love the distress look it gives.


Finally, my title piece is the You Shine words. I embossed it with aqua embossing powder.

Always (7 Dots Studio)

Dear crafty friends,

I'm sharing with you today my latest layout created for 7 Dots Studio. It is called «Always».


I started my layout with the Fortune paper from the Fortune-teller collection.


I love that paper. I created a mixed media background on it, using, paints first, and then stencils. 


I chose the Letters Stencil from the Writers Block collection. I used it with graphite texture paste. 


I then selected the Squares Stencil from the Soulmates collection. I used it with black heavy gesso.


Next step was stamping. I used the Hazy Days Clear Stamps with black Archival Ink.


To mat my picture, I used the Fortune-teller 12x12 Tags and pieces of the Tarot paper, also from the Fortune-teller collection. 


I used die-cut shapes here and there on my layout, to create some texture.


I used some of the 6x12 Word Stickers from the Fortune-teller collection in three key places on my layout.
