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!
All the inks and powders are from Lindy’s and the badges are from Cuts2luv.

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.

All inks are from Lindy's gang, the badges are from Cuts2luv and the paper and flowers are from 49 and Market. 

Join us before the end of the month you could win one of the fabulous sponsors prizes!

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!

Sugary sweet for 49 and Market

Hi friends,
I'm with you today to share a special layout I made with an old picture of my sweet little boy. I haven’t scrapbook this picture I think and this one is really important to me. It’s one of the first I took of him when he was born 6 years ago after 3 years of
 infertility.This gorgeous paper from Scents of nature represents so well how my heart is full of love for this little angel!
49 and Market products used: 
“Beauty Abound” from Scents of Nature collection
“Faded Damask” from Gaby’s stamps
“Butterflies” stamp set by Gerry
Rustic collection flowers small blooms
Botanical Potpourri vintage shades orchid
Vintage shades purple blossoms
Seaside blooms Cotton
I used the wreath included in the seaside blossom flower pack to frame my picture and keep the focus on it. I’ve layered some chipboards, fabric and flowers around to create a nice arrangement. I used also some of the green leaves to make my white flowers pop even more.
You can also see that I used damask stamp on my background here and there just to give some extra texture to it and the butterflies stamps on vellum to create my own embellishments. I love the softness of vellum. Just stamp with versamark over it and emboss with any color you want to create fun and unique embellishments!
Finally, I chose a title that was perfect to fit with my picture. I stayed in soft tones to keep the whole layout delicate and elegant. You can also see that I completed my flowers arrangement with some burlap flowers from the Rustic collectionand some tiny orchid blossoms from the Botanical Potpourri line.
Embossing powders are from Lindy’s and badges are from Cuts2luv.
That’s all for today, I hope you like this soft layout!
