Tag duo for Creative Embellishments

I am in a summer mood and wanted to create some beautiful tags for gifts to my friends. 
The starting point of my project was theses beautiful tag album from Creative Embellishments that I covered in Gesso.
Then I added with a paint brush, my 1st coat of Lindy's Stamp gang spray color Tiffany Lou Blue


The second coat is done in touches and then some splatters with Mad Hatter Mint


Next step was to emboss with white my butterfly and bird cage chipboard and add my other decorative elements. One of my favorite element is this beautiful colored stamp from Altenew, it highlights my flair perfectly:


Here are a few other pictures:


OOOH and the new french words ! I am in love !

Graduation, my Creative Embellishments DT project

I've been charmed with many of the Creative Embellishments chipboard and found some that were perfect for the graduation picture of my youngest son Gabriel.
My second inspiration was to play with my new Finnabair Wax. I just received them and wanted to test the effects on chipboard and other surfaces.

I wanted to share my tests with you and made this Youtube video for you to see my process:


Here are a few snapshots for a closer look to the details:


The effects on the chipboard are amazing:

Look at this beautiful title chipboard:










Here are a few pictures of my tests



I hope you enjoyed my video and hope you will be inspired to play with your Creative Embellishment chipboard. 

I wish all of you a wonderful day.

Live in the moment

My eldest son Philippe is in the Autism spectrum disorder. He is a fantastic young man, and I love him so much, but at times I do worry about what his future will be. He his a kind and gentile soul.

I bought him this pink shirt last year, very trendy with flamingos. He loves animals and this shirt fit him so well. I loved this on him and felt it represented his soft side very well.


A few key phrases:
-Live in the moment
-Never give up
-Tell yous story 
-Embrace your imperfections

Here are a few more pics to see the details:




I love this new flair from Cuts2luv, so retro so perfect for capturing these moment.


I have to say that this is one of my favorites in the spring collection, if you like them as much as I do, they are available on the Etsy shop HERE.

Thanks for stopping by !

As you've seen the Cuts2luv team are participating in the sketch challenge, here is my take on it:


Here is the beautiful sketch:

Vacances

It's a rainy May so far in Canada, so perfect weather to get crafty. I started this page yesterday during National Scrapbooking day, I hope that many of you had the chance to play with your craft supplies yesterday.

I am in the need of sun, so I took out one of our beautiful family pictures from last summer's vacation in beautiful Cuba.


I love this picture with my boys, I am blessed that they are so kind and gentle. I am proud of the young men they have become. As a mother, I've been quite blessed. So happy that we are close and even as young adults, they still enjoy spending time with us as a family and I cherish every moment.
My inspiration for this page came from More than Words and Altenew challenges:
MORE THAN WORDS challenge: HERE
Image may contain: 1 person, flower and text
MOTHER: For this project, I feel blessed to be a mom, so I wanted to use a picture of myself with my boys.As they get older, I know these moments of spending time with them on vacation will be fewer, it's the fact of life, so I truly want to ensure I enjoy every moment that I have with them. 
FLOWERS: Fot this part, I chose to color some stamps from Altenew. I find the process of coloring and cutting our my stamps so relaxing and I love the look they give my pages.
 
Second challenge entry is at Altenew: May Inspiration challenge 
Here are a few pics of my water-colored flowers:
