I was out of town for part of the weekend and I only brought my small Moleskines, a pen and a pencil to create so I made a Zentangle on Friday night and a mandala on Saturday. The Zentangle looks a bit like a monster to me. Today, I didn’t have a lot of energy so I simply made a mixed media greeting card that I’m sending with ATCs for a swap. That’s it for today. Thanks for visiting! Continue reading Weekend update
My personal schedule is changing this week with some dance classes on Mondays and Fridays so I might have to rethink my blogging schedule accordingly. I’ll let you know if I do. In the meantime, here are my weekend’s creations. On Saturday, I made a greeting card for a friend of the family who just became a first-time dad. Mom had already assembled the 3D image of the dog and baby so I simply had to match papers, cut and assemble everything. On Sunday, I wasn’t feeling too well so I took it easy, watched a lot of old TV … Continue reading Weekend update
Hello dear readers! I’m sorry for being gone so long without any explanation. Life got in the way of creating and blogging. Also, there was the wee matter of a break-up. But now I’m back and I’m here to stay… I hope! I haven’t done many things in the past month except work, work and work. I started Nanowrimo and even though I’m still technically participating, I know I won’t have 50,000 words by the end of the month. And I’m ok with it. I’ve been stuck in a rut, creatively speaking, so last weekend, I decided to participate in … Continue reading She’s baack! – La revoilà!
My two best friends celebrated their birthday last week. One on the 6th, the other on the 8th. I met them both through work, one at my last school, the other at a scrapbook store where I was employed for a few months. They have similar personalities but very different styles. So I had to make completely different card styles for them. And that was fun! Geneviève is full of zest. Always happy and talkative. She is also a big Habs fan (local hockey team) so when I found a stationary kit at the dollar store with the bear on … Continue reading Birthday cards for friends – Cartes de fêtes pour des amies
> This week is Daycare Educator Appreciation week. Our boss is giving us a little something special every single day. Her boss (the principal) will be offering her a present as well so I volunteered to make the card. I wanted something simple that she would appreciate. She loves flowers and frog images so this stamp from Stampin’ Up! (A Flower for All Seasons) was perfect for her. I simply colored the image with Prismacolor pencils, blended with odorless solvent and added a bit of Gold Liquid Pearl to the middle of the flowers (oops, looks like one of them … Continue reading >A card for my boss – Une carte pour ma patronne
> This is the Christmas card I made for my mom last week. I was inspired by a card made by my good friend CeeCee. The penguin and his hat were glued with foam squares to add dimension. I added a pearl on the hat’s pompom, some Stickles on the heart and fine glitter on the ice’s edges. The oval was also glued with foam squares. Voici la cart de Noël que j’ai faite pour ma mère la semaine dernière. Elle est inspirée d’une carte faite par ma bonne amie CeeCee. Le pingouin et son chapeau on été collé avec … Continue reading >A Christmas card – Une carte de Noël
> Today is my mom’s birthday! Happy Birthday Mom! I made this card for her using Stampin’ Up! papers and a Sweet November stamp. The image was coloured with dye inks + blender pen as well as Prismacolor pencils blended with odorless solvent and a paper stump. The card is bigger than the usual size I make because I had to included a pocket on the inside where we could slip some money. I made the envelop to match but forgot to take a picture. Aujourd’hui c’est la fête de ma mère! Bonne Fête Maman! J’ai fait cette carte pour … Continue reading >Mom’s birthday card – Carte de fête pour maman
