> November is here. Which means I will be spending the better part of my waking hours attempting to write a novel. I’m still planning to create and post here every weekday. But I will keep most of my written words for my novel instead of my blog. Le mois de Novembre est ici. Ce qui veut dire que je passerai la majeure partie des mes heures éveillées à essayer d’écrire un roman. J’ai tout de même l’intention de créer et d’afficher ici chaque jour de semaine. Mais je garderai mes mots écrits pour mon roman plutôt que mon blogue. … Continue reading >Music scrapbook pages – Pages scrapbooking de musique

>Shaved head scrapbook page – Page scrapbooking tête rasée

> I can’t believe that this is only my second scrapbooking page this year (the first one was back in January!) At the beginning of the year, one of my goals was to scrapbook more. So, to achieve this goal, I will be doing at least one page per month until the end of the year. And I will mostly be using photos that are already printed. J’ai peine à croire que ceci n’est que ma deuxième page de scrapbooking cette année (la première était en Janvier!) Au début de l’année, un de mes buts était de scrapbooker plus. Alors, … Continue reading >Shaved head scrapbook page – Page scrapbooking tête rasée

>Too often, like many people, I tell myself that “starting right now I’m going to take better care of myself.” You know, exercise, healthy food and all that. And every time, like many people, it lasts a couple of weeks and then I fall back into my old habits. I’ve tried using visualization and positive thinking to reach my goal. But I guess I’m still not getting it, for this anyway. I don’t know. Maybe I need to read The Secret again. Doing my Daily Art Cards is really helping me in trying to step out of my comfort zone. … Continue reading

>Back to scrapbooking

>It’s been a while since I’ve done any real scrapbooking. This page has been waiting to be done for months (since last spring I think.) I finally decided to do it yesterday. To start off, I sanded the edges of the pictures because I felt they looked too perfect (_I_ don’t even know what I mean by that but whatever…) I layered them over a cinema-themed paper and then assembled everything on another cinema-themed paper. Die-cuts, embellishments, journaling (in french) and voilà! It’s not my best and not my favourite but at least it’s done and now I can move … Continue reading >Back to scrapbooking

>2-page layout

> Last wednesday, I went to Catherine’s house for her Stampin’ Up! “open house” party. It was fun. We did 2 make-n-takes. We received a piece of cardboard cake with goodies inside. And I won a paper pack! I usually don’t win anything! Yippie! So these two pages are done with said papers from the pack. I love the colours! This is for my 8.5″ x 8.5″ album. I’m liking this 2-page spread a lot! What do you think? Continue reading >2-page layout

>Layout + Card

>I made these, this morning, to give to our school’s principal because she’s going to another school next fall. The pics aren’t the greatest but it’ll do for now. All patterned papers are from Costco (the 3rd series) and cardstocks are Bazzill. On the card, I stamped the face (unknown source) on glossy paper coloured with alcohol inks and then mounted it on a 1-1/2″ square chipboard. I did some paper piercing, added gold Stickles and used a gold leafing pen for some edges. On the layout I used my Van Dyke Brown ink on the frayed edges of my … Continue reading >Layout + Card

>When inspiration strikes…

> …it’s best to follow. For a week, I’ve been looking at my pictures from New-York, wondering how to use them in a layout. I finally decided on a 2-page layout but then was stumped for colours. I brought my New York paper with me to SC and asked Catherine for some help. She suggested this gorgeous blue to match the Radio City neon sign and some white for matting and journaling. I picked up some Thickers for the title. But I still felt like it was missing something. Yesterday, as I was shopping with mom, I found the perfect … Continue reading >When inspiration strikes…
