Scrappy Friday – Le Grand Bleu


Welcome here for a new Scrappy Friday!!!

Here is my page, looking back on the 80’s – 90’s for the last time….  I must confess that one film really symbolizes these years for me, I don’t really know if you American people have ever heard of it…. It’s “Le grand Bleu” (The Big Blue) and it was a huge success here in France, it really symbolizes our generation.

To decorate my page, I used the Hey Kiddo sequins, as well as the Cork Chevrons and some Shooting Cork Stars.

Here are some details :

See you next week for my next Scrappy Friday!

Love from France,

Guess who’s Six Layout with Katty Miranda


Hello friends, Katty here to share another 12×12 Scrapbooking Layout.  I am so in love with this months mood board for The Pretty Patterned Paper Playground. I decided to use it again. I am scrapbooking three photos of my adorable nephew who just turned 6 last month. The green in his shirt matched this mood board perfectly.


I began with a sheet of patterned paper which was a lime green color with colored yarn balls. I had actually pulled that paper out to use for an “Ugly Paper” Challenge in another group. I realized that some of the colors matched this mood board very well. I used a 1 inch punch and punched out the red, orange and white yarn balls. I scattered them around the right side of a white 12×12 cardstock. To bring in some yellow I used a Crafters Workshop stencil called Cosmic Bubbles with my beautiful Shimmerz Dazzlerz in Lemon Drop. My idea was for it to look like scattered confetti.


I then used my Dazzlers in Sour Apple and added triangles of color with a Prima tiny checkerboard stencil. I added 3 triangles which will be the resting place for my photos. I added a simple mat behind my photos using some yellow and red doodlebug tiny doilies.

I then scattered around some of the White Felt Fetti Hearts, some pieces I cut out from the Kaisecraft FInders Keepers paper pad and some sequins. For the sequins I took white ones from the Fairytale 2 Sequins, small red ones from the Believe In You Sequins and yellow ones from the Spring Blooms Sequins.


I did some fuax stitching around some of the circles as well with an orange Papermate Pen.  For my tittle I used Burlap Thickers in the Eric font. I love how it turned out.


There is a process video on my Youtube channel if you’d like to watch:

Thanks so much for stopping by today. XOXO -Katty

Stamping with paints!! Krafty Hearts Blog Share Wrap Up

Kraft-y Heart Blog Share

It’s been a fun three days of sharing my new Close To My Heart Projects.  I think I’m sharing my favorite project today, saving the best for last!  Today, I’m sharing how I stamp with paints.  It’s pretty easy actually.  All you need are your stamps (wood mounted, acrylic or cling), a foam brush and some acrylic paints.

I started with the lovely Chantilly paper set and the June SOTM; A Flowering Bunch.  This stamp set is very fitting for this time of year, don’t you think?!  First, I layed out my papers and cardstock with my picture.  I used a 4×4″ Instagram picture of our daughter, Sari.  I just love this dress and matching headband!  I wanted to break up the color with some black and white, but not TOO much.  I added some torn pieces of the black and white script paper from the For Always paper set.  It also seemed to help ‘tell a story’ about this photo with the script writing.  I like to look for things like that to add into my layouts.. just a tip for you there! 


Next, I stamped a bunch of floating flowers that lead from the edges of my layout, into my focal point.  I adorned most of the flowers with some CTMH Clear Sparkles and the Chantilly Fabric BadgesThese are very similar to vintage buttons, only they are adhesive backed and ready to adorn your scrapbook page or any other project you have in mind.


I love this flowering border stamp, but I didn’t want to stamp it black or color in all the petals and leaves either.  This scrapper has to find ways to create her layouts fast!!  Any workin’ Mamas out there can relate, I’m sure.  So, instead I stamped the border with white acrylic paint.  You can see that I layered different pieces around my photo.  You can go HERE to learn how to create easy layers on your projects.  NOTE: I wash off my stamps right away so the paint doesn’t dry in all the crevices.


This lovely stamp set is only available this month!! So, don’t delay and pick one up today.  You can order directly through my website HERE.  The June Stamp Of The Month is $17.95, or only $5 with a $50 order.  That’s a fantastic deal.  Host a party, on-line or in person, and earn FREE products fast!
