Le Grand Bleu

Hello,

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,

Christine

Scrappy Friday – Friends

Hello Creatives,

Here I am with a layout for my Scrappy Friday. This time, thinking back about the 80’s-90’s, I decided to get my inspiration from my favorite TV series at that time, the one I was so delighted to watch in English, as I was studying English at University in order to become a teacher….

What an amazing way to learn a foreign language and a foreign culture!

Just like in the series, we’re 6 friends and I must confess each time we meet, we feel like we’re as old as we were in the nineties….

I like the way the Spiegelmomscraps Corky Cumulus and Cloudy Days Felties give some lightness to my page…. And they totally sum up the atmosphere when the 6 of us meet!

And what about you, what was your favorite series at that time?

See you next week for my next Scrappy Friday!

Love from France,

Christine

Birthday Card

Hello Creatives!

Here I am with a new and totally different Scrappy Friday.

The project I’d like to share with you today is a birthday card I made for one of the Spiegelmomscraps DT member, Marie Friant.

To make it, I decided to use the Peach Fuzz Paste-eez Simmerz Paint. First, I took some of it and then added water. I spread it on a piece of plastic bag and then applied it on my paper. When everything was dry, I spread some of the paste on a stencil. That gives the two different shades on the card, the background being lighter because of the water.

I then stuck the Heidi Swapp acetate word TODAY right in its center, used a Heidi Swapp flower stamp  from the Magnolia Jane collection in its right hand corner.

I finally used some  Spiegelmomscraps Green Acres sequins to brighten it all up.

I then added a lovely tag which I stapled. Before sticking my piece of paper on a white plain card, I mated it on a doted paper.

Hope you like it! See you next Friday!

Love from France,

Christine

 

Creative Cards With Karla – Mermaid Fun!

Hello friends! Karla here today with a pretty card and tag set featuring lots of adorable under the sea and mermaid images – and perfectly coordinated Let’s Be Mermaids and A Mermaid’s Tale sequins!

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @prettycutestamps @kaisercraft @janedavenport @americancrafts #sequins #mermaids #coloredpencils #underthesea #digitalstamp #greetingcard #gifttag #giftset #borderpunch

I layered on some older Kaisercraft sea themed paper along with a watercolour strip of blue paper for my card front. I used a corner rounder to round the right side corners of the card and paper before attaching.

These cute Pretty Cute Stamps digital images look great coloured up with Jane Davenport Magic Wand colouring pencils. I’ve been grabbing some stamped or printed out images along with coloured pencils and markers to colour while I’m at my daughter’s soccer games!

I love how well the Let’s Be Mermaids and A Mermaid’s Tale sequins matched! And I love how they give the card dimension and texture. I even used one of the awesome yellow flowers in the Summer Sunset sequin mix to tuck into one of the mermaid’s hair!

Inside, I added another watercolour paper panel printed with a digital sentiment and added a cute little turtle and some more pretty sequins. I’m totally addicted to adding sequins inside my cards!!

For the matching gift tag I layered some pretty papers and my images again, adding a doily and a button with twine. I used an American Crafts border punch to give my layers on the card and tag some more interest. A bit of Nuvo Crystal Drops along the border highlight the scalloped edge.

This sweet little gift tag and card set is all ready to give to my daughter’s friend for her upcoming birthday! And what little girl doesn’t like mermaids and sequins?!!

Wish – A Spring Layout

Happy Spring!

I don’t know about where you live but these last two days have felt like spring – we’ve had such a mild winter I think I’ve been in the spring mentality for a while now.

12 x 12 Spring theme scrapbook layout #spiegelmomscraps #shimmerz #corkclouds #mixedmedia #shimelle #scrapbooking #papercrafting #sequins @shimmerzpaints @wordsandpaperscraps @spiegelmom_scraps

When it comes to scrapping, I’ve really been working to rediscover freedom in what pictures I use. So far, I’ve done almost too well keeping up with Project Life – I sorta don’t have much to scrap that is super current. So, to make sure I’m still having fun and not letting creating become too regimented, I’m making a point to scrap whatever just to play!

This is one of those projects. This picture was taken on a trip I led last summer to Colorado. It’s so fun! I had lots of products I wanted to use with it.

The background is composed of lots of Shimmerz splatters – with yellows and blues (You could also use this one + this one) along with stitched sequins. The stitched sequins are the one element I really had envisioned and wanted to build from. My sequin mix of choice for this project is Rockin‘ Pink Ombre. I really really love monochromatic sequin mixes.

I also painted some Corky Cumulus clouds white and stitched them onto my page too.

I wanted the paper layers I chose to be a nice complement to the embellishments without being too distracting – I used several products from the Shimelle “Little by Little” collection along with a few Crate Paper things. I also had a “Wish” Thicker in my stash that went perfectly with this layout.

I tied in the black with some black stamping and then I was done! I really love how light and airy this project feels – perfect for spring.

Thanks for stopping by!

What About Wednesday: Highlights of 2016

13932877_10210738580967273_2143640393516853298_n

 

Aloha!! I love this time of the year. It’s a time for fresh and new starts. To know where I want to go from here though I think it is extremely important to take a step back and look at all we have accomplished in the year before. For my family this year was filled with so much.

I really wanted to make a layout that listed all these things. I want to keep it simple and make it fun too.

I decided to go with the 9×12 size to make my layout. I really love the way my albums look like with all these different sizes incorporated through it.

img_2166

I had so much fun layering papers and labels. Feltie Hearts and Build A Snowman Sequins were layered too. I really wanted the year to stand out.

There are so many ways to make a layout about highlights, right?! I really had to sit back and think about the approach I wanted to take for mine. I decided I wanted it to be focused on journaling and not on pictures. Even though that would have made for a really cool layout too. It is just not what I was feeling. Where I am in my journey of scrapbooking right now.

Because I I am not using a photo or multiple photos, If I did I think I would have loved to have tried circle photos. As crazy as that sounds. I think the smaller glimpses into our highlights would have been a fun approach. I decided to add a bold patterned paper on the bottom half of the layout. It really makes a statement and gets your attention.

img_2167

To separate the pattern from the open white space, which would soon be filled I used a branding strip from a scrap paper. I choose a black and white pattern to really ground the loud pattern. I layered some labels again as I did in the date title. This simple layering is such a little fun piece that helps give a little cluster to enjoy. I used more Feltie Hearts and Build A Snowman Sequins again to bring a cohesive feel throughout the page.  I also dated the labels with a light aqua date stamp.

img_2168

At the top of the layout I hand drew Highlights. My handwriting isn’t amazing but I really feel like it’s something that will be treasured. When I think about looking through old documents from the past, seeing a person’s handwriting it just stirs something in me. This is why it is so important for me to write on majority of my layouts, and this one even more so.

I also add a Feltie Heart and some Bulid A Snowman Sequins to the corner. After all the journaling I did I made sure there was Egg-noggin Shimmers ink splatters in that corner as well as throughout the layout.

If I had really planned this layout better, I would have thought the heart stamp as bullet points for my list from the beginning. I however am very much a scrapper of the moment, which I think really shows my passion. It can though make things look little messy, but I am ok with this. So know, that these little details really tells your family about who you are.  It is quite a fun element on a page, whether you pre-plan or wing it.

img_2169

I started off by hand drawing hearts and then later switched to using a stamp. This gave me the ability to change the color of the hearts easier. I used black and pink ink.

I really love how the journaling up up looking.

img_2170

 

It is so much fun seeing all the accomplishments of our family written done. Now I can’t wait to make a layout all about the things I want to reach for this year. I look forward to seeing even bigger and brighter things for my family too.

I hope you were inspired today to journal more and make a layout about things you have accomplished this past year or throughout your life. It would be so much fun to turn this layout into a bucket list type of layout too. There are so many different approaches you could take.

I hope to see you around next week and in the Facebook Group too.

18: December Daily Mini Layout

Happy Friday!

I hope your holiday spirit has been extended through this weekend for NYE! I’m almost entirely done with my December Daily album.. just in time for my last-day-of-December goal.#decemberdaily #documentingdecember #decemberdetails #christmascrafts #DIY #sequins #spiegelmomscraps #mixedmedia #shimmerzpaints #pinkpaislee @pinkpaislee @shimmerzpaints @spiegelmomscraps @wordsandpaperscrapsSometimes I get so excited when the perfect photo opportunity arises, I forget to shoot in portrait and therefore have to get creative when I want to share landscape oriented pictures. I really love to create layouts in non-traditional sizes, and I’m excited to incorporate those together with traditional pocket pages in my Project Life album. Meanwhile, here’s an adorable picture of my incredibly difficult to photograph dog on a mixed media layout. #decemberdaily #documentingdecember #decemberdetails #christmascrafts #DIY #sequins #spiegelmomscraps #mixedmedia #shimmerzpaints #pinkpaislee @pinkpaislee @shimmerzpaints @spiegelmomscraps @wordsandpaperscrapsI splattered my background with black acrylic paint and Shimmerz Dazzlers in I Lilac You. Once that dried, I layered some Pink Paislee Yuletide ephemera underneath my photo and added some sequins from the shop for some shine. #decemberdaily #documentingdecember #decemberdetails #christmascrafts #DIY #sequins #spiegelmomscraps #mixedmedia #shimmerzpaints #pinkpaislee @pinkpaislee @shimmerzpaints @spiegelmomscraps @wordsandpaperscrapsI wanted to keep my pages consistent so I stitched the “18” from the themed cards for my album across the top. #decemberdaily #documentingdecember #decemberdetails #christmascrafts #DIY #sequins #spiegelmomscraps #mixedmedia #shimmerzpaints #pinkpaislee @pinkpaislee @shimmerzpaints @spiegelmomscraps @wordsandpaperscrapsI inked a sentiment across the bottom, added some silver sequin stars, and then I was finished! So quick and easy. I love the beginning of a new year! I’m excited for where it takes me.

What are you most looking forward to in the coming year?
