Stamping and stitching

30 January 2012

Two of many favourite techniques I love to use. Well I got the chance to do so over on the Studio Calico forum playing along in the CHAllenge week. Really like making layouts without photos!!!! 
Deux techniques que j'ai beaucoup: tamponer et coudre. Je les ai utilisées sur cette page faite pour deux défi sur le Studio Calico Forum! 

CHAllenges at Studio Calico.

29 January 2012

As I have a wee bit of time on my hands this weekend, I decided to play along at Studio Calico with the CHAllenges in honour of CHA. I made  this layout combining Stephanie doily challenge and Jen's layering challenge using one of my many SC kits still lying there nearly untouched! 
Un peu de temps ce weekend et j'ai donc décidé de participer aux défis sur le Studio Calico forum! Voici une première page qui combine 2 défis! 

 And then I am using my last scraps of the January Scrapbook Nook kit.
Puis j'utilise mes petits bouts de papier qui reste du kit de Janvier de My Scrapbook Nook. 

I am now waiting for this which will be in the next kit:
Et j'attends le kit de Février qui contient ceci: 

Interested in a kit. Look here! Intéressée? C'est ici.

Project life week 2

23 January 2012

As tomorrow is Tuesday and on Tuesday I teach evening classes, I won't have lots of time to blog so today I am posting twice. Love Project Life and making my pages. They are really me and this approach suits my hectic lifestyle. So week 2 looks like this (week 3 is nearly finished as well but that is for Friday!)
Project Life semaine 2.

Mini book that opens up. I don't want to buy any more page protectors so I am finding ways to add pictures without using to many. 

Products from Sassafras, Studio Calico, Crate Paper, Jillibean ....

WINTER where are you?

Last year we had loads of it and it was wonderful. The kids loved playing outside. This winter has been in one word grey. Grey skies and lots of rain. Seems more like autumn than winter. What better way to feel a bit more wintery than by scrapping some pictures from last year. And that just what I did!! I used the lovely ColorsConspiracy papers and transparency. I used some more grey cardstock that I heart at the moment.

Un hiver qui n'y ressemble pas, donc j'ai décidé de scrapper une page hivernale avec les papiers de ColorsConspiracy.
Products: EveryDay01, transparent Block-B, diecut et badge. OTHER: Studio Calico white mist, Tattered Angels Grey mist, tracing paper, AC thichers, Kési'art stamp.

21 January 2012

I know I have said it many times but the My Scrapbook Nook forum is such an inspiring place to be. At the moment we're having an online crop. It started on January 7th and runs through to February 5th so you can still play along. There are lots of great prizes to be won! Challenge 5 has just gone online. Read more about it here.
My Scrapbook Nook a des kits à tomber et le forum est une source d'inspiration. Pour le moment nous organisons une crop qui dure 4 semaines. Rejoignez nous ici, si cela vous intéresse!!! Il y a des fabuleux prix à gagner.
I created the first challenge for our crop and this was the layout I made for it using the lovely January kit!
J'ai posté le premier défi et voici la page que j'avais faite (j'ai utilisé le kit de janvier!) .

Here is another layout I made, one about my best friend, my husband.

I also made this card with the January kit. I have still got loads left over and might just make some more!
