I’ll be back… soon :)

Hello everyone!

It’s been a while without posting, and I didn’t have a chance to explain why it took me so long to write again. We moved from England to France less than a month ago, and we had internet cut off by our provider very early, in fact it was a (bad) surprise. Then once in France, it took very long to have internet in our new apartment, and anyway we were busy unpacking and trying to settle in our new home. Not easy, especially with a toddler and a baby running around 😉

Our eldest (which will turn 3 at the end of next month) has started preschool last week and it’s been a lot for her to deal with (new country, new language, new house, new friends, new teacher…), so it’s  still a bit complicated. She’ll be fine eventually, but for the moment she needs a lot of care and attention, and so does our youngest.

Needless to say, I feel like my Mojo is still hidden somewhere in an unpacked box, I’m struggling to find it back but I long to create again! I hope you’ll bear with me in the meantime.

Now for the creation part, I decided to share a project I made some times ago, using the same technique as in the negative die-cut I did here. In fact, I made this card set and the box before, but couldn’t share it yet as I was planning to offer it.

(Sorry for the photo quality, the light was not very good and I had little time to edit it.)

Again as for the thinlit word die-cut, the technique is quite simple : you cut stripes of papers and you glue then side by side, then you die-cut your shape (here, the little bird on the branch) on a piece of white cardstock and you adhere it using foam adhesive to give depth. Of course a few rhinestones had to be added around the bird ;). Don’t forget to stamp your sentiment before adhering the cardstock, or you’ll have trouble stamping it nicely (been there, done that… :p )!

Like this little bird ? you can find it here in its Christmas version, along with its birdhouse 🙂

I hope this will help you wait until next post, where I may have some exciting news to share… 🙂
