Magical (Prima Marketing)

My dear crafty friends,

I feel like it's been a while since I got the time to write to you. Work is just crazy these last few weeks and I'm buried under papers to grade. Have I ever told you that I teach French in high school? Anyway, I'm very busy lately, so my creating time is very limited. Let's hope I get to see the end of the grading soon!

I take a little grading break to share with you a layout I created for Prima's Pinspiration feature of last week. I love this feature! I created a layout called Magical. Here it is.

I was inspired by this beautiful image, from Pinterest.

Family (2Crafty Chipboard)

Dear crafty friends,

My second layout for 2Crafty this month is called «Family» and it features my two kids with their cousin.

This time, my focal piece is the title.

I embossed the «Family» title with a turquoise embossing powder, to go with my mixed media background.

I decided my picture needed some kind of framing, si I choose one of the 6'' Circle Revolution Frames and embossed it a deep teal color.

Just peeking from underneath my flowers clusters are the Mini Branches, also embossed with a deep teal embossing powder.

I love the effect against the background.

I then selected the Leafy Silhouettes, embossed the same turquoise embossing powder than before and scattered them around my flowers clusters.

I love the delicate shape of those Leafy Silhouettes.

Love (2Crafty Chipboard)

Dear crafty friends,

I'm here today to share my first layout for 2Crafty Chipboard. It's called «Love» and it features my brother's family.

I love this picture of them. My brother seems so happy and in love, that I wanted to show that in my layout.

To do so, I started with the Lave Heart Frames, that I embossed with a dark brown embossing powder. It was my focal piece.

To give more texture to my layout, I used pieces of the Grid Panel, embossed in copper. I placed those pieces here and there, behind my embellishments clusters.

I also used one of the Fine Heart Borders and cut it in pieces.

I embossed them with a gold embossing powder and placed them here and there, over my flowers, in a curved shape. I love the effect.

My title piece is the word «Love» from the Line Words - Happiness Borders. I used the same copper embossing powder than before to emboss it.

Some other close-ups...

I created a video tutorial for this layout. Enjoy.

Let the Adventure Begin (Prima Marketing)

Dear Crafty Friends,

I'm here today to share with you a layout created for Prima Marketing. This time, I decided to work with the beautiful Amber Moon collection.

I chose this beautiful paper to feature this picture of my brother and my niece.

After priming my background with clear gesso, I created my background using a stencil with modeling paste. two Color Bloom mists: Lime Wedge and Sultry Shimmer Gilded. I also used some stamps and brown ink.

I used lots of paper pieces and gorgeous flowers from the collection. I also used the Forest Leaves Dies and with brown and orange cardstock. In my main cluster, I also used the Crochet Doily die

I put the last finishing touches with more flowersArt Stones, Pollen and Bronze Micro Beads.

I wish I was able to take a good picture of the badge from Accent Scrapbooking, as the words capture so well what I wanted to express with this layout: «In the middle of my chaos, there was you.»

My chipboard title is from 2Crafty Chipboard.
