It's Official now!

Yes, it is official, I am a proud DT member of the Scrapbook Café. They needed 2 creative persons and I am one of them now! Woot! We had to make 3 original creations: a layout, an altered item and a mini album. And here is what I made.
The layout: Bientôt 17 ans=Soon seventeen
The mini album I choose to make is without any photo but with quotes instead.
And finaly I altered a big matchbox that I turned into a memory game.
Have a creative Wednesday!

A Christmas owl. I painted the owl and the hat with distress ink, just like watercolor.
A pennant made of craftboard.

Angel wings
Another small shadow box
And a Christmas tree on a little box

Today I want to share with you some Christmas ornaments I made. A mini crown made of painted and stamped grunge board.
I recycled some scrabble letters in this one.
This one is like a little shadow box made from a cheese box.
The drum was made from a paper toilet roll.

And finally I made these stars from a cereal box.

Mini Hamburgers..... Cupcakes!

I've seen these on Pinterest. I made them for the birthday party of my younger daugther, yesterday. I think they look good. It was fun to do and not really hard.
Have a creative Sunday!

Woot! Woot! I've Been Published!

I was so happy when I got my copy of Canadian Scrapbooker magazine in the mail, yesterday! One of my layout is in there. It's a first time for me in this magazine. The cover is gorgeous!

This is my layout. The theme was to be inspired by the Masters...

I also made this little Joyeux Noël house. It is in fact a gift card holder. I added a pocket in the back to do so!

I will show you some Christmas ornaments soon. I am almost done.
Until then, be creative!

A Scraplift

Usually I don't do much scraplift but when I saw this layout from the very creative Janie in Scrapbook Extra, I knew I wanted to make one. I don't know how come I never painted on a layout before... oh well! Now it it done!
So here is the original work from Janie
And here is mine, I used a smaller piece of fabric and a smaller photo as well. It was a really fun challenge! Come on! Grab your paint brushes now! And add some paint around your photos!
Have a creative Friday!

Want To See My New Camera?

Of course it is not a real new camera! It a new project that I just finished. I made the box out of chipboard with a paper roll (cut in two) for both ends.
The lid opens and there is a chunky mini album inside. Ok, ok when I took the photos today I realized that I have to glue some paper inside too! I will, I promise! LOL!!
This is the front of the album and it measures 3" x 5". I also made the rings out of grunge board.
It is thick as you can see!
I don't know how come the photo can't be enlarge by clicking on it. I didn't change anything on my blog. If you have an idea why this is happening, let me know please!
Have a great evening!

An Album And A frame

Good sunday morning! Time flies isn't it?!! Today I want to show you the album I just finished. I needed one badly, so I choose to make it instead of going to the store and buy one. I made it simple with cardboard and kraft paper. I already had the extra clear plastic pages to fill it.
And here is the second project I made. My MIL lost her brother couple weeks ago and I made this frame for her as a tribute. I printed the photo in black and white but let him his blue eyes. I think she will be happy with the frame.
That's all for now. Have a creative Sunday!

A Lay Out And A Mini

Hello to you! Last week-end I went to a crop and here is what I made.... I was kind of slow, not very productive. But that's ok! The challenge was to make a monochrome page in black. The title is sometimes and I wrote it directly on my photo before to print it. No way to change my mind on this one.
I also made this mini album for my friend Gabrielle. It will be her Christmas "card" this year.
Some inside page views. I love doing mini album.....
That's all for now!
Have a creative Sunday and a Scrary Halloween tomorrow!

Halloween With The Stampsmith Challenge

Hello to all!! I just finished this card for The Stampsmith Challenge. I used the stamp 5 sisters that I choose when I won the challenge last month or so ago.

All the sisters wanted to be witches for Halloween except one, she wanted to be a clown, but it didn't turn so well and she is the more scary...poor thing!
I also made this bracelet using Stampsmith stamps on shrink plastic
Very happy with the result!
Have a creative Sunday!

A Recipe Book

Hello all, long time no see. Time flies and I am not much on the computer these days. I made this recipe book to hold all my recipes in the same place. Now I have to find the time to write down all my recipes in there...
oh! And this is a great try. Cherry bread!! Very easy. Take your favorite bread dough, flat it down. Pit some cherries add them on the bread. Mix some brown sugar with cinnamon, sprinkle all over. And bake it! Very, very good!
And I found this on pinterest! Gee, I so agree with this!

Have a creative saturday!

And the after.
It holds papers, my never ending lists, the kitchen

Sketch Challenge With Stampsmith #20

It's been so long since I played with the Stampsmith Challenge, so I think this week was a good one to do so! I used the Stampsmith italian tarot stamps to make the background of my 6" x 6" card and I also used an image for the top of the card where I stamped L'amour est éternel. Sketches are not always easy to work with but it was a fun challenge!
Have a creative Monday!
