Noël des Créatrices craft fair 13th of november at Rueil Malmaison (south of Paris)

I haven’t been around much lately, sorry about that. I had to finish the baby announcement cards for my son (yes… he’s 5 mo already… that’s how late I am!), I’m working on another pack of baby announcement cards for my niece and I have another big project coming: I’m participating in a craft fair in Rueil Malmaison (south of Paris) with my friend Valérie the 13th of november, so loads to do!

Here is a project I’m currently working on:

Shimmer and Shine - Nautical tags frame - in progress

Roses for my mum

Hi everyone!

Today I share a project I made for my Mum’s birthday. While surfing on Pinterest I came accross a beautiful ombre cake and it inspired me for the kind of gift I had in mind. I wanted to use the wonderful Spiral Flower Die that allows you to make the cutest little roses ever. Sadly I didn’t have any matching papers in these lovely blueish violet tones, so I went for purple instead.

To die cut the roses, you just need a quarter of a A4 sheet, so each line of roses is only one cardstock for the whole frame. You have to curl up the die-cut roses to help you roll them into realistic roses, it’s a bit tricky at first but it gets easier with practice. I used white glue to adhere the flowers to their base (you may want to use a heat gun if your roses are going to be manipulated a lot, like on a box for instance, but mines were suposed to stay in a frame, so I was happy with the glue) and then I used a glue dot to stick them on the white cardstock background.

Here is a closer view of the roses. You can see I added tiny transparent pearls on some of the roses, so that it looks like dew drops. I love putting discreet details like those as a little surprise for the person who really pays attention to my work 😉

I added a butterfly just because… I absolutely adore this die, it’s so delicate! But I didn’t want it to compete with the roses, so I left it white with just a rhinestone on its body. I stuck it with a glue dot directly on the glass so if my mum wanted, she would be able to take it out, but she seemed to like it too…

You are our anchor!

Hello 🙂

Today I want to share the present my daughters and I offered to their daddy for Father’s day. As they are 2,5 year old and 8 month old, I helped them a little 😉 but they proudly “drew” inside the card! ^^

My husband is in the Navy, and I’ve had an idea in mind for quite a long time since I saw the Float my Boat stampset from Lawn Fawn. First I wanted to decorate chipboard letters (D A D) and take a picture of my daughters holding them but if you’ve ever tried to take pictures of toddlers and babies together, you know how impossible difficult it is to get them to look at the camera at the same time (I don’t even talk about smiling while looking at the camera!), and I was concerned Roxanne would have a little chew on them 😉

So I changed my mind and stuck the letters in a frame, and my daughters gave it to their daddy. Of course, I had to make a card for the girls to “sign”!

Here is our present to my wonderful husband. The sentiment is just perfect for him, although I wrote “our” instead of “my” to adapt it to our family 🙂

I’d like to enter the challenge “Nautical” from The Card Concept, for the “Clean and Layered” style. I hope the background can be considered as “white space” even though it has stripes…
