Scrappy Friday – Missy Whidden Scraplift

Hello Creatives!

Here I am with the 4th Scrappy friday of the month. I usually only do 3, but because the challenges were so fun, and the fact that I am on holidays, here I am for a fourth one!!!

But, to be perfectly honest, the truth is…. How could I miss the opportunity to scraplift a scrapper I totally admire?

As you probably know, the challenge is to scraplift Missy Whidden this week!

Here is the page I’ve chosen :

What I particularly liked in this page is the background, made of different paper strips, the different layers, the frames, the embellishments and the different words and phrases. Well, I confess…I like every single bits of that page LOL!

What I knew from the beginning to be impossible for me was to add some stitching to the page, as you probably know by now, I’m totally hopeless at it!

However, I’ve come up with a page which is quite different from the original, but which includes the elements I’ve listed above:

Instead of using strips of paper, I used some washi tape strips. and I framed my pic’. I also tried to add some volume and layers, as well as some embellishments (paper clips, perspextives, flairs and Spiegelmom Scraps felt and cork stars and clouds)

I then added some words and phrases, using either stickers or stamps.

It was such a pleasure to scraplift such a talented scrapper! Have YOU tried to play along with us this week?

See you next Friday for another Scrappy Friday!

Scrappy Friday – Happy Birthday America

Hello Creatives!

Here I am with July second week challenge : Scrap a birthday you normally wouldn”t…

I immediately took the opportunity to celebrate the American National Day…. And here is my page. I find it quite ironic that I’m publishing it on July, 14th, which is France National Day. As if to highlight the link between our two countries!

Why did I decide to pay a tribute to America?

First because this is a country I’ve already visited, and which I will visit again (next trip is scheduled for April, 2018, I’m sooooo looking forward to it!!!)

Then, because I’m an English teacher and I’m in love with the American language even though its accent is quite hard to get used to at first.

Then, America is the first country to have trusted me as far as scrapbooking is concerned and enabled me to be part of Creative Teams. Thus, I am now so happy to have virtually met talented and nice American scrappers.

To make my page, I decided use the Honor Guard sequins, because of their color, obviously.. I also used blue and red texture paste which I spread on numbers and stars.

Then I decorated a Birthday card with the sequins and added some felt hearts and cork stars. I also added a flair, again, using it as its colors perfectly matched my theme.

Then I used various stamps to fill the empty spaces.

Hope you had a wonderful 4th of July, see you next week for a brand new Scrappy Friday!

Love from France,

Christine

Scrappy Friday – 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

Scrappy Friday – A 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!

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

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!
