Scrappy Friday – Shimelle Scraplift

Hello Creatives!

This Scrappy Friday is about scraplifting a scrapper, who, once again is amonst my favorites : Shimelle.

Here is the page I’ve chosen:

What I particularly liked about it was the large photo and the different embellishments from top to bottom.

I first tried to use the same kind of paper for my background, and of course decided to scrap a large photo as well.

Then, I splattered different kinds of embellishments from top to bottom, amongst them the cork stars and felt clouds from Spiegelmom Scraps shop.

Here are some sneaks:

What about you? Have you ever scrapped a large picture? Do you like to do so?

See you next week for another Scrappy Friday!

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 – A card

Hello Creatives!

Amongst all the challenges this month, this one is, by far, the most difficult for me. Even though I totally enjoy and admire sewing and stitching on other scrappers’ pages, I personally don’t have a clue on how to do it on my creations.

To be perfectly honest with you, I’ve spent a whole afternoon trying and starting again, before realising what is obvious : I certainly do NOT have the talent to do it.

However, I still wanted to take part in the challenge, so I decided to work on a smaller scale. That’s why I’ve made a card!

I just used some inks ans stamps to create the background and I stitched along the lines of one of my favorite stamps. That was it! I did it! LOL!

I then used a cork star to decorate the happy birthday tag.

See you next week 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 – 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
