Scrapbook page - Play

I currently have a little exhibition of some scrapbook pages and mini-albums in the local library just to raise awareness of what scrapbooking is about and of the course I started in the village last month. Here is another page I created yesterday with the Association at Tourc'h. I'm looking forward to making a slate hanging there on Friday night.
Background and photo mount: Embossed Bazzill; Papers: Basic Grey 'Boxer - Commando' & DCWV 'Spring'; Papermania ribbon; Jolee's 'Lighthouse' stickers; Doodlebug alphabet; VersaMagic inks.
J'ai une petit expo à la bibliothèque à St Yvi (29) jusqu'au Téléthon pour faire mieux connaitre cette passion du public et parce que je propose des cours scrapbooking à la maison des associations les jeudis après-midi chaque 15 jours. Voici, une page j'ai fait hier avec l'association Tourc'h 2 scrap. Le vendredi prochain nous travaillerons sur ardoise.
J'ai utilisé: fond de Bazzill embossé; Papiers de Basic Grey 'Boxer - Commando' et DCWV 'Spring'; ruban de Papermania; Stickers 3D: Jolee's 'Lighthouse'; alphabet: Doodlebug ; encres: VersaMagic.

Just Christmas ... Cards Sketch

I made this square card for 'Just Christmas and Birthday cards' fortnightly challenge sketch:
Une carte selon the sketch chez 'Just Christmas and Birthday cards':and then another similar but A5: et d'autre similaire avec format A5:Very quick and easy using Kanban's backing and die-cut sheets plus silver mirri board embossed with the Cuttlebug snowflakes folder 3D mounted on blue card inked with silver Brilliance and then white card.
J'ai utilisé carton imprimé de Kanban avec carton argenté qui j'ai embossé avec la Cuttlebug classeur 'flocons de neige'. J'ai collé les images au carton bleu qui j'ai encré avec la Brilliance argenté, et au carton blanc.
JCBC are also having a DT call and I have sat on my hands since I read it: I have been on a DT before and know the commitment it demands but that was different... Sketches are what I love and Christmas and Birthday cards are what I do most: I know I can do it, just have to be organised... Here's my hat being thrown in... :)
J'essaye pour l'équipe de ce blog, alors j'ai choisi deux favorites cartes...
So I need to show 2 favourite cards:I love what the DT do on JCBC, just hope now they feel my style will fit in alongside theirs!

Page and mini-album

J'ai fait un 'crop' à Bailleul (59) et je me suis inspirée des toits de Flandres pour créer mon propre modèle, et de nos repas dans la région pour cette réalisation. C'était un weekend inoubliable: Bon travail, plein d'humour!
On my weekend crop at Bailleul (northern France) where I lead workshops making a calendar and cards, I was inspired by the Flanders roofs to make a quick sketch and by the good food and beer (just the one glass !) for the resulting page. First time any of these people had met but we had a great time :DJ'ai met mes photos des souvenirs dans un mini 15x15cm j'ai créé dans un crop à Plémet (56) le dimanche dernier.
Souvenir photos are captured in the mini 15x15cm (6x6") I made on another crop last Sunday.J'ai utilisé: Bazzill (fond de page et mini) avec la gamme de My Mind's Eye Bloom & Grow et le titre du mini découpé avec la Cuttlebug.
Used: Page: Card is Bazzill, title is white Doodlebug coloured with Versamark and Ranger 3D glossy accents, everything else is from My Mind's Eye Bloom & Grow range.
Mini: dark green card is Bazzill, title cut with Cuttlebug 'Not the Boss', everything else is MME Bloom & Grow.

New baby scrapbook page

Well where did that month go? I've been to the north of France giving workshops on a crop weekend, across to the UK to see the new grandchild, and ... I've got lots to show you, just got to find time to blog it all!So first up, a page made at Pont Aven's association who kindly invited me along for an evening. Papers, including punched out circles and the paper animals are by imaginisce, alphabet by Fiskar's Heidi Grace, ribbons mostly PaperMania, and stitching: yes, me: There's a rare sight!
