Colourful Monday

30 April 2012

I hope you had a lovely weekend. I two things to show you. First a layout made with ColorConspiracy papers. I do have a things with hanging elements and this one has some of those as well. Love this picture of Elouan. Seems like yesterday. 
Une petite page CC avec mon bébé Elouan (qui n'est plus vraiment un bébé!)

This is Elouan now! Yes, that's him being creative.

And then I have this to show. A mini book I created and you can buy it at the ColorConspiracy E-shop (instructions available in French). 
Envie de faire un mini. Pas de souci. Ceci se trouve dans la boutique de ColorConspiracy. Un PDF très complèt pour recréer ce mini dans le quel vous pouvez mettre vraiment beaucoup de photos.

Two posts this weekend, yes that's correct. I haven't been this busy in long. Six weeks left until exams start at school, lots of gardening to get done, DIY in the house, my list is so long I dare not look at it. I am still scrapbooking but I plan ahead and at the moment I am not spending more the 45min at my table. This weekend has been one with ups and downs and the downs were more linked to me not feeling well than anything else. The ups are the kids! They have been so sweet. I snapped this picture yesterday morning. Damien reading Robin the book he had got from the school library! My heart fills with joy and happiness seeing them together!!
Deuxième poste de ce weekend! Beaucoup  de chose à montrer, d'abord mes 3 grands loulous en train de lire!! 
I have also been creating with the May kit from My Scrapbook Nook. LOVING it! Two layouts made with This&That Graceful. The first with an auto portrait of me and my camera! The second with the mosaic is a lift of a page I made for a magazine (can't show you that!). Isn't she pretty my little niece!
Puis 2 pages faites avec le kit de mai de My Scrapbook Nook! 

Layout 2

Last but not least a layout using some SwissGirlDesign Stamps and the April kit from My Scrapbook Nook with the LOVELY Storyteller collection from Crate Paper.
Et pour terminer une page en Crate Paper et avec des tampons SwissGirlDesigns!

My Scrapbook Nook May

28 April 2012

I have taken the plunge and started cutting up the May kit from My scrapbook Nook as well as the grab bag!!!! FUN FUN FUN and love the Echo Park Papers. I wouldn't have bought them myself and I'm so glad there were in the kit because they are FABULOUS!!!!! Here is my first layout made with the grab bag (Echo Park This&That Charming). It was for a "lift the person above you" challenge over on the My Scrapbook Nook forum! I lifted this card made by Antoinette.Well as I made a layout it is not exactly a lift. Let's call it inspired by ...
J'ai commencé à découper mes papiers du kit de mai du kit de My Scrapbook Nook! Je les adore!!! Les Echo Park This&That sont sublimes!! J'ai fait cette page pour le "lifter la personne avant vous" sur le forum de My Scrapbook Nook. J'ai lifté cette carte d'Antionette (ou plutôt, je me suis inspirée de la carte). 

I also got some of my SwissGirlDesign stamps out. Love them!!! Made this with the May Grab bag: 

Oh and almost forgot. This is will be out soon and I have a whole article in it. Here's a sneak!

Echo Park This and That Graceful: My Scrapbook Nook May kit


25 April 2012

It's the theme over on the Crate Paper blog this week. I love the chipboard bluebird from the Pretty Party line and wanted to use it to create a Spring wreath. I cut out lots of flowers using my cameo (I used these three: magnolia, 3d rose petal strips and flower spinal peony bud).
Cest le thème cette semaine sur Crate Paper. J'ai fait ce home deco pour la maison. J'ai découpé des fleurs en utilisant mon cameo (les noms: magnolia, 3d rose petal strips et flower spinal peony bud).

I also made a video to go with it. Check it out on the Crate Paper blog

Studio Calico and another ColorCombo

24 April 2012

I finally got some time to play with my SC kit (April: main kit - City of lights)  yesterday. I printed this picture a few days ago, as a challenge to scrap a big photo! It isn't easy but I love the outcome.
Un peu de temps hier pour jouer avec mon kit d'avril de Studio Calico et de scrapper une grande photo qui est plutôt rare pour moi! 

Then if you need some inspiration check out the new inspiration board over at ColorCombosGalore. It's the same as last week only this time it cards week.
