I was inspired by the Jar of Love set, so I made a real one as a gift 🙂

Of course it needed some embellishments, and a tag…

… and rhinestones!

Love the simplicity of this little flower… so cute!

Dream Theme Blog hop #3 : Happy New Year!

Hello!

Welcome to our new Dream Theme Blog Hop! This month’s theme is “New Year” !

If you’re coming from my beloved friend Tracy May, you’re already hopping, otherwise, please click on the blog list to start.

This blog hop had me wondering what I could use, as I owned nothing that said “Happy New Year”… so I put my thinking cap on, and took this opportunity to think out of the stamp box… hehehe

Here is what I created with Balloon Celebration Stamp Set :

Shimmer and Shine – Dream Theme blog hop : Happy New Year !

Well, what can a French person think of, when she comes through the word “Champagne” ?

Shimmer and Shine – Dream Theme blog hop : Happy New Year !

My flute is (poorly) hand drawn and I used the balloon filling to create my Champagne bubbles, I’m feeling very clever here teehee 🙂

By the way, did you know the Champagne bubbles come from little grains of dust on the side of your glasses? if your flute is sparkling clean, you’ll have almost no bubbles at all. How sad!

Shimmer and Shine – Dream Theme blog hop : Happy New Year !

 

Because it is (almost) New Year and we’re talking about Champagne, there is a lot of gold involved here. Foil, Embossing powder, nothing’s golden enough for the liquid of Gods! (Am I being a little carried over here? Hmmm maybe 😉 )

Dream Theme Blog Hop #2 : Small gifts

14800898_10154607950732020_950912843_n

Hello!

Welcome to our new Dream Theme Blog Hop! This month’s theme is particularly fitting for me. As a matter of fact, I’m leaving my job as a Social Worker at a teen shelter in a week, and I wanted to create something to express how much I enjoyed  working with my colleagues, and meeting so many lovely teens. My job is quite hard, but so rewarding and I’ll miss them A LOT. I wanted to make something special for everyone, which would offer me the opportunity to hide a personnal message as well as a little treat. So… small gifts it is 🙂

If you’re coming from my beloved friend Tracy May, you’re already hopping, otherwise, please click on the blog list to start.

Well I’m feeling a bit emotional here, but I thought the little houses from the Home Sweet Home boxes were perfect to remind how much our shelter could feel like home when life happened to be hard for the teens. We had lots of fun together, laughter, cooking, and I know I will deeply miss them.

Here is what I created for each teen of my group (10) :

aaa2

that’s a whole neighbourhood lol 😉

aaa

(sorry for the poor quality of the photo, I had to take photos with my phone… I’ take more later, I’ve kept one little house for myself as a model !)

I’m making some for my colleagues too…

I used the “Home sweet home” bundle, and the heart embossing folder for the roof.

Dream Theme Blog Hop #1: Christmas Theme!

14800898_10154607950732020_950912843_n

Hello!

Welcome to our new Dream Theme Blog Hop! Every month, we’re going to explore a theme and give you inspiration for your paper creations. This month, we’ve chosen an important one: Christmas! If you want to get ready for the Holidays, please follow our blog hop and enjoy all the beautiful creations we’ve made especially for you!

If you’re coming from my beloved friend Tracy May, you’re already hopping, fantastic! otherwise, please click on the blog list to start.

Here is what I came up with: bear hugs for everybody !

Shimmer and Shine - Bear Hugs - Dream Theme Blog Hop : Christmas

I used Fa-la-la-la Friends from Stampin’up, with the coordinating dies. I love the festive fish lol, had to make it the star of my background 😉 The bears were coloured with Promarkers. The little star comes from the Totally Trees stamp set.

This is the inside. I like to create a matching inside, I think it gives a really nice finishing touch.

A little close-up to see Daddy Bear and Baby Bear in their not-so-ugly sweaters and pajamas ? Aren’t they cute?
