Magical Layout!

This month I played with my Magical shakers. I love them and I sometimes forget to use them to create my own embellishments.
I challenged my self to use only my shakers on this layout! No spray ink!
Here’s the result!

First, I chose 3 Magical shakers that were looking great together. I picked Oom pah pah pinkOktoberfest Orange and Cuckoo Clock Cardinal.
I sprinkled some over some stamps I made on a watercolor paper. Then I gently sprayed water over the powder to make it react just a little. Don’t put too much water if you want to have the same effect.

Once dried, I fuzzy cut all my flowers and leaves. After this, I mixed Cuckoo Clock Cardinal and Oom Pah pah pink with some paper paste to color it a bit.

When still wet, I sprinkled over my paste a bit of Cuckoo clock cardinal embossing powder to have some red touch on my background.

With the same magical shakers, I colored cheese cloth to add behind my embellishments.

Here’s some close ups of my layout.
I really love that Magical shaker effect!

With using the same 3 shakers for my entire layout, I have a perfect coordinate arrangement!

Lovely layout for 49 and Market


Hi everyone!
I made this layout featuring a lot of products from the Cottage life collection last year. With a wonderful picture of my niece pregnant with the first girl of the family, I wanted to put the accent over my composition so I used a dark background to make it pop even more.
49 and Market products used: 
“Cottage cut outs” paper from Cottage life collection
“Eclectic pieces” paper from Captured Adventure collection
Cottage life layered embellishements
Sweet reflexion Lock and Key stamp set
Botanical Potpourri snow
Botanical Potpourri vintage shades orchid
As I said I used a lot of cuts out on this layout. I started with some texture pasted mixed with a lilac ink to have a shade near my woodgrain paper and to match with the flowers. The layered embellishments are so beautiful and made the whole layout more feminine.
With an oxyde ink from Tim Holtz I stamped some flowers around from the Key and Lock set and I wet them just a bit for a watercolor effect.
A coordinate pink ink added watercoloring all around the embellishments.
I choose a title in the same shades to complete my layout. The botanical potpourri flowers are for sure my favorite! Their multi size are perfect to put everywhere!
All the inks are from Lindy’s gang and the badges are from Cuts2luv.
Thank you for you time again! See you next month!

Love this for 49 and Market

Hi everyone!
I hope your doing well! Fall is arrived here in North America and this is the season of farm visits and apple picking! My kids love animals and they are always happy to participate in those activities. As you can see, Logan made a new friend with this fluffy bunny at one of our friends little farm.
49 and Market products used: 
Cottage life 12×12 collection pack
“Watering the garden” paper from Cottage life
“Fresh Delivery” paper from Cottage life
“Cottage cut outs” from Cottage life
Blossom blends flower poppy
Cottage life layered embellishments

I started all my layout on the navy blue side of the Fresh Delivery paper. I added modeling paste over a stencil randomly in the middle. Then I took the cuts out paperand I fuzzy cut a lot of flowers, leaves, rooster, ladybug, butterflies etc… I put my picture right in the middle over an enveloppe and started to layer my embellishments. I mixed some paper ones and layered ones.
Some blossom blends poppy came at the end to complete my composition. I also made a couple of splats with a white ink to make texture. The red title went at the top to add a pop of color over my layout.
Some more close ups
The rooster was perfect for this “farm style” looking I wanted. I finished my layout with adding the red stripes from the paper Watering the garden on both side of the page. It frames the picture just a bit more to keep the eye focus in the middle.
Thank you for you time, see you later this month with another page!

More than Word Leisure and Splats

Here is this time again to start a new challenge on More than words.

We have another fun one this month! 

I've always been creative, my LEISURES have always been around creating something. In the last years I discovered crocheting. Some people around me asked me to crochet hats for them and quickly it became a big success! This picture is a display stand I have in a coffee shop near my house. They now sell my winter hats and I very proud of this! For our creative challenge, I choose white SPLATS to illuminate my composition.

A day at the beach for 49 and Market


 I created again with the new summer collection Island Paradise. I will never get bored of beach theme! I’m lucky that most of my family pictures are at the beach too! Here’s another one of 2 of my boys taking the pose just in front of the Cape May Lighthouse beach.
49 and Market products used
“Island Paradise” Laser cuts
“Under the ocean paper” from Island Paradise collection
“Stargazers flowers” in petal pink
“Seaside blooms” flowers in pink
“Botanical potpourri” flowers in snow
“Garden seeds” flowers in sea breeze
“Wedded bliss” stamp set
I started my layout with a thin coat of clear gesso to protect the background paper. I used a stencil with modeling paste over it and let it dry completely. I choose a mint tint of ink to partly color the place I wanted to do my composition and I heated it with a heat gun to make it dry faster. Then I picked up some flowers in the mint, pink and white combo. Stargazers were my inspiration to start, I layered flowers and laser cuts.
Some flowers stamps, embossed in pink are completing the bouquets I made. I wanted to keep it soft and delicate. Once all the flowers glued, I added touch of stones to have more texture.
The beautiful birds and anchor from the laser cuts reminds me the ambiance of that beautiful day!
The ink and powder used for that layout are from Lindy’s gang and the badge is from Cuts2luv.
Thank you for your time and see you next month!

Seaside with 49 and Market

Hi everyone!
happy to share my very first layout with the new gorgeous line “Paradise Island” available now in stores! I have a big big crush for beach things and this collection is totally perfect for summer memories! I guess that with those new papers, you will scrapbook summer all year round! That’s what I will do!
49 and Market products used: 
“Time to coast” paper from Paradise Island collection
“Laser cut sheet” from Paradise Island
“Stamps” from Paradise Island
“Botanical blends” flowers in snow color
“Vintage shades” sage mulberry flowers
“Stargazers” flowers in Sky blue color
“Botanical potpourri” Marina
Archival board “Escape” white

I started with adding a thin coat of clear gesso on my paper background. This protects the paper while adding inks. I chose a blue shades that was going perfectly with the new Stargazers flowers. When my ink was dry, I stamped randomly some starfish and bubbles from the Paradise Island stamps set.
Then I layered the beautiful flowers from the Botanical blends and Botanical potpourri with some laser cuts and archival board shapes from the Escape pack. The little turtle is so cute and the seashells are great to fill blanks between flowers!
The seaweeds are very beautiful used with flowers, it’s a kind of marine leaves! I completed my layout with some art ingredients stones here and there fixed with gel medium between my flowers and embellishments.
I chose my title from a Dusty Attic chipboard “Journée à la plage” that means Day at the beach, perfect for this picture of my son on the Jersey coast last summer.
The badges are from Cuts2luv and the ink used is from Lindy’s gang.

That’s all for today, see you later in the month for my second creation!
