Défi Août Cuts2luv

Me voici donc avec mon interprétation du tableau de Août cette fois! 
Il est rafraîchissant avec son combo dans les teintes de bleu et jaune!

Du tableau j'ai utilisé le combo bien sûr, la technique de motifs détourés (ancre et feuillages les créations Edith Cloutier), j'ai aussi 3 horloges sur mon fond et un badge avec mots. 

J'ai utilisé le nouveau kit Beach Therapy un gros coup de coeur pour moi!

Escape for 49 and Market

Hi everyone!
Caroline here, happy to share a beach inspired creation. I take most of my vacations at the beach, this is really my happy place and it gives me the chance to take wonderful pictures with my boys each years. This one was taken on an early morning on the Jersey shore mid July. My little sweetheart was hunting horse shoe crabs on the low tide with his father. They found some, they were pretty happy!
Here’s the collage of the 49 and Market products I used for this creation!
“Hibiscus summer” stamp by Valerie
“Escape” white Archival board
“Sand and sea” fussy cuts
“Tattered beauty”  paper from Tattered garden collection
“Wander aimlessly” paper from Captured adventure collection
“Botanical Potpourri” Marina
“Botanical blends” Navy
“Garden seeds” Aloe
I love to cluster my embellishments around my picture. I always do! This layout is no exception. I started with 2 papers with a tiny coat of clear gesso. I always prepare my surface with clear gesso so if I want to add inks later I will have no problem to do it. I used a grey blue here behind my layering.
I left my archival board white to contrast over my background and embellishments choice. With the gorgeous Navy Botanical blends behind this is eye catching!
Here and there, I used some fussy cuts from the sand and sea collection which were perfect match with my picture. I layered different colors of flowers with archival boards and stamps colored with Lindy’s magicals.
I have used a stencil with paste that I colored with a beige magical powder from Lindy’s also. It added texture to my background to keep the focus on my picture.
I chose the title Escape from the same name archival board, it was totally in the theme of this early morning!
That’s it for today, I hope you like this layout like I do!
Badges are from Cuts2luv and all the inks used are from Lindy’s gang. 
Thanks for stopping by!

August MAIN challenge MTW

Here we are with another fun and inspiring challenge at More than words! 

Challenge takes all it's sense this month for me

Vintage ... OH MY! 

No way I'm gonna cry, a challenge is always FUN! 

Here's my take on it! 

"My inspiration for this month's challenge started with this picture of my in laws. They celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary last month. To think about their journey together reminds me our inspiration words YESTERDAY. They lifes are made of a lot of yesterdays and they got through all them with love. For our creative twist VINTAGE I have of course my picture but I also stayed in the vintage style with a lot of brown and beige."

I used some Lindy's gang sprays here: 

All the badges are from Cuts2luv!

Join us on the blog to participate to the challenge, like every months there's a lot of fabulous sponsor prizes to win! 

See you!

Remember today - 49 and Market

Hi everyone! 
Happy to share this new layout for 49 and Market! Summer is a wonderful season and the easiest to do beautiful pictures. In summer I always grow my collection of beautiful captured moments with my 3 sons. Here's my youngest one on a walk near the river near our house. 

49 and Market products used: 

  • "Vintage shades" blue blossoms
  • "Botanical Potpourri" Snow
  • "Botanical blends Vintage shades" blue
  • "Garden seeds" Aloe
  • "Archival board" Remember Today black
  • "Captured Adventure" Faded Memories paper
  • "Captured Adventure" Wander Aimlessly paper
  • Gabi's "Crackle texture" stamps set
  • "Dandelion fields" Laser cuts sheet

I love Captured Adventure paper collection, they are easy to use with any color accent. They are perfect for travel but also for all kind of pictures with their neutral palette. I choose 2 of them and I layered portions of them in just one side of my page. I left a lot of black space to keep the focus on my picture.

I used the Archival board Remember today black as a title, I simply brushed some Finnabair wax over it to give is a nice turquoise shade. Wax is perfect on black boards! I did the same here and there over the lattice pattern too from the same board package.

I did random stamping on my background where I haven't add modeling paste. I used the little crackle from the Crackle texture stamp set. I layered flowers, lace and chipboards to complete my layout, I also used 2 clocks from the Dandelion laser cut sheet. I finished with light white splatters.

The badge is from Cuts2luv and the inks and embossing powder used are all from Lindy's gang.

Thanks for your visit!

Moodboard de juillet pour Cuts2luv

Hello tout le monde! 

J'arrive tout juste de vacances, la tête pleine de souvenir avec un superbe bronzage, la vie est belle! 
La plage a toujours été mon endroit préféré sur terre et il était temps que j'y retourne! 

Voici une page faite avec une photo d'un voyage passé en Floride.

Quand j'ai créé ce tableau j'ai pensé à moi rien qu'à moi! Je suis une fille de mer et de sable :P 

J'ai donc utilisé la photo, le badge, la technique et le combo.

Bien que je n'utilise pas souvent de rouge dans mes créations j'aime bien en ajouter une petite touche sur une fleur ou sur un embellissement.

Mon badge ancre vient des badges inédits des "Sacs surprise" de juin.

Les autres badges viennent du bundle seaside que j'adore tellement! 

Bundle Seaside

Le papier et les fleurs sont de 49 and Market
 Le spray est de Lindy's Afternoon Delight denim 

Voilà c'est tout pour aujourd'hui et n'oubliez pas de relever le défi! 

Vous pourrez vous procurer les badges sur Etsy d'ici quelques jours la boutique réouvre en août!

Guest for My Creative Scrapbook

Hi, Caroline with you today and happy to be there for My Creative scrapbook

Today I will share with you a step by step tutorial to make a gorgeous layout using our July LE kit edition. This kit is soft and romantic, it reminds me a lazy summer day at the beach. 

Let me show you first my layout

I've started with a thin coat of Prima clear gesso over the entire background made of 2 gorgeous Santorini papers from our LE kit. 
Then I came back with a Liquitex white gesso to soft the flowers in my background.
This is the place I'm gonna put my picture and embellishments at the end of course.

I used a modeling paste over a Vicki Boutin flower stencil included also in LE kit.
I colored my modeling paste with some Lindy's gang magical powder, Cocklebells coral.

Here's the result once all dry. This is a soft pink that goes perfectly with the pattern paper.

With the same Magical color from Lindy's gang, I went over my stenciling to make some watercolors effects. I mixed powder and water beside my layout to use it like ink.

I made some drops around to finish.

To fit with my layout, I used Oom Pah Pah pink embossing powder from Lindy's over the Creative Embellishments chipboards frame included in the kit. I love their chippies. 

To add a bit of texture behind my picture I sprayed a piece of cheese cloth with Merci beaucoup mint spray from Lindy's also.

Once I placed all my embellishments together to make my layout, I added some art ingredients rocks here and there beside my flowers all included in LE kit to complete.

I finished with mini ones. 

I will leave you with some close ups! 

That's it gang! I hope you liked it and thank you for being there with me! 
It was an honor to be guest this month at My creative Scrapbook

Lindy's July tutorial

I'm with Lindy's for more than 2 years now, wow time flies! I've always love to create on white backgrounds to leave space to the colors and this layout is not an exception. 

I found 2 tones of Starburst sprays in my stash as starting point and I imagine my layout around those shades.
IMG_4570 (1)

I started with a flower stamp that I've embossed with Black forest black.

IMG_4562 (1)

I took my Starburst Bling-y Blonde to make small splatters here and there. I dried it with my heat gun.

IMG_4563 (1)

Once completely dried, I did the same with my second color Starburst Pretty in pink pink. Those 2 colors are part of our July combo! 

IMG_4564 (1)

Once again, I dried all the ink with my heat gun. At that point I realized that my picture will hide most of my flowers. This is always a struggle I have, making a beautiful background but hiding it after! I decided to stamp on a piece of scrap watercolor paper and to do it once again.

I fuzzy cut the poppies only.

Then I completed my layout with straws, badge, chipboards and voilà! 
I made a few close ups for you:

I stamped some leaves on vellum paper and I embossed them with Purely white powder.

I hope you enjoyed the process, see you later with another tutorial!
