Bloom & Grow examples

Thank you to everyone who visited me at Créativa last weekend: It was great! I made lots of pages, cards and other things beforehand that I never got a chance to blog so catch-up time... Here are 3 cards that have been cut from one piece of Bazzill 'Sun coral' that I mounted these samplers of MME Bloom & Grow papers, rub-ons and decoupage on. Other things used were a Dovecraft magna flower punch for an extra layer of Bazzill, VersaMagic inks, bit of ribbon and the Dovecraft Butterfly template.Merci à tout le monde qui ma visité à Créativa Brest le weekend dernier: C'était super! Voici trois cartes que j'ai crée de la Bazzill et exemples des papiers, transferts et pré-découpage de MME Bloom & Grow que j'ai met sur le stand. J'ai utilisé aussi la perfo géante fleur de Dovecraft, l'encre VersaMagic, un morceau de ruban et un gabarit papillon de Dovecraft.

A hanging thingy !

Putting together a number of techniques, I've made a hanging thingy very influenced by Hels, right down to the beaded fringe and including hearts for her Sunday Stampers challenge this week. I've said this before but if you haven't seen her blog and the things she makes you should!
I've also managed to include all the ingredients for the Ready, Steady, Stamp challenge: green, copper and sand; children; heat embossed metal; die-cut; funky foam. (Vis ton rêve = live your dream)
Used: mountboard pieces coloured with Shabby Shutters distress ink and (background) sprayed with Golden Mint Cosmic Shimmer, stamped with Shabby Shutters distress ink and SeeDs children stamp, text stamped with Brilliance Cosmic Copper; sand-coloured foam heated and stamped with Hampton Art key stamp and Brilliance Cosmic Copper; Spellbinders copper metal embossed with Cuttlebug Heart Blocks and also die-cut and embossed with Butterfly combo then inked with holographic black and heat-embossed with clear powder; Prima flower, copper eyelets (which are straight unlike how they look in the photo !).

Double scrapbook page - Fun in the Snow

I have made this sketch and example double page for my scrapbook class in St Yvi. Nicely distressed edges as a result of trying to emboss 12" card in a Cuttlebug! I made the most of the white core card by giving everything a good sanding. Patterned die-cut card from DCWV Holiday pack, Silver glittered card from DCWV Glitter Strips; embossing and die-cut alphabet using the Cuttlebug; snowman tag from a Christmas present and Jolee's snowflakes.
You are welcome to use the sketch for personal use and link back to here: Please do NOT copy the sketch to show/distribute elsewhere. Please leave a comment so I can visit your work too. Thank you.
J'ai créé une modèle d'une double page avec cette exemple pour mes ateliers à St Yvi (29). Si vous voudriez, utililisez le sketch pour vos pages personnalisé, pas commercial. Si vous mettez vos pages sur un forum/blog/autre svp ne copiez pas le sketch : Faites référence de l’originale ici et svp laissez un commentaire puis je peux vous visiter aussi. Merci.
Pour mes pages j'ai utilisé le papier die-cut de DCWV, les fonds avec les blanc intérieurs qui j'ai poncé, les classeurs d'embossage et d'alphabet de la Cuttlebug, flocons: embellissements de Jolee's.
