Lindy's challenge & Edith Cloutier Creation.

Wow so much inspiration this month, another amazing color combo challenge by Lindy's and a fabulous moodboard by my friend Edith.

I had fun making this layout. I used a 13@rts stencil with Prima Donna Purple magical & light modling paste to make my leaves.

Here you can see some of Edith's printed flowers, butterfly and leaves:

I played with Tiffany lou Blue, Witch's potion purple & Hibiscus rose sprays for my background.

Poppin pink Embossing for my chipboard. Perfect to make Edith's words pop off the layout.

Follow your dreams pour Cuts2luv

L'été dernière, lors de nos vacances, nous en avons profité pour faire un petit shooting photo en famille. J'ai fait cette page de mon plus jeune fils Gabriel, beau comme un cœur et adorable. Cette année est une grosse année, il termine le Cégep et va faire son entrée à l'Université. Alors, le titre 'follow your dreams' est tellement parfait pour cette page.

Pour cette page, j'ai superposé 2 badge, une caméra et ainsi que le badge brique pour le look grunge de la page.

Une citation des mots d'Édith Cloutier.

Voyez-vous le sisal bleu foncé et les racines sous mon montage? J'adore l'ajout de cette texture

Un montage avec plusieurs chipboard style grunge donne une page très masculine.

Je vous souhaite une superbe journée et bonne création !

Blue Fern Studios March projects

Hi bloggers, I can't believe that it's March already. Time is flying but, but I am enjoying crafting for the Blue Fern Studios Design team. This month, I'll be sharing 2 layouts and 1 off the page project. 

Capture the Moment Layout #1

The starting point for this layout was this beautiful picture of my 2 sons and I taken during our Riviera Maya vacation last summer. I wanted to extend on my layout the colors of my picture, so a blue background with a sandy beach.

I chose the beige background from In the Mood - Flirty paper. Once covered with Gesso, I layed my foundation of ink on the top half.

I wanted to have multi tones on my chipboard to give it more dimension. I opted to cover my clock and rectangle pieces in Ginger, Black & Gold and finally a touch of Oatmeal embossing powders.

The bottom of the layout, in order to create a beach feel effect I worked with cheese cloth and wool fibers that I glued with gel medium. Then I added touches of small stones and 4 colors of seedlings: Paprika, Twig, Gold Nugget & Glass.

Once my background was complete, I chose to build my layers. For my title, I chose to use 14 Karat embossing powder. I love the glitter it adds to the layout.

This last picture shows the beautiful Blue Fern flowers, more details on the embossed chipboard & seedlings. I also included Rose Gold glitter but it's impossible to capture the glitter on my picture.

Formidable layout # 2

Time for another magnificent picture of my gorgeous niece with her family. I just love the vibrancy of the red in the picture and chose to use that for my highlights.

 Remnants Westfield is my chosen paper for this layout.

I had fun playing with different techniques on this layout. The first step was to emboss different sections with the Green Ivory Embossing Powder.  I used 2 stamps to emboss on my background paper: Weathered Doily & Honeycomb.

I chose to alter the circle chipboard with black gesso, and some waxes to give them an antique look & feel.

I love adding the small sentiments from the Remnants printed chipboard set.

Can you see the top of my tags? I like making my own tags, they make wonderful ornaments for my layering. Here is used leftovers of my Remnants collection. 

I wanted to add some shine to my flowers, so I added touches of white & gold glitter

Off the page project: Vision Board 2018

Have you ever made a vision board? This year at work, I hosted a team event where we I invited our team members to create their combined work & personal vision board for 2018.

The goal of a vision board is that if you see you goals on a daily level... you set-up you mind to making them happen.

To set-up my board I used many elements from my Blue Fern collection.

The first step was making my chipboard world map. I wanted it to pop out so I chose Blue Sky embossing powder:

Second elements where to use my gorgeous Blue Fern stamp sets. I love the words Family and Hopes & Dreams. I found them perfect for the family section of my board.

To create sections, I chose to use the frames in the Homespun printed chipboard set:

Here we can see a printed frame and the word Journey, both from my stamp stash.

And lastly, more of the Homespun printed chipboard elements. They are just adorable.

Disclaimer: I did pull off the internet and Pinterest some quotes that I found to complete the vision board.

I hope you enjoyed my 3 projects for March and I wish you an amazing crafty month !


Tableau d'inspiration Mars pour Cuts2luv

J'adore m'inspirer des magnifiques tableaux Cuts2luv. C'est tellement une belle façon de commencer un projet lorsqu'on a le syndrome de la page blanche.

Pour ma inspiration du tableau de mars, je vous présente cette page:

Chut je rêve.... petit mot parfait pour cette photo de ma nièce, son conjoint tenant leur beau Ayden. Le badge cœur on craque ! Tellement beau mise en valeur sur ce capteur de rêve. Un badge parfait pour le défi badge à un motif.

Un des éléments du défi est de faire un chipboard altéré, pour ma part, c'est l'horlorge. on débute avec une couche de gesso noir et ensuite j'ajoute des touches de wax (cires) de Finnabair/Prima. J'adore cette technique.

Et voici le tableau du mois:

Mes choix: croquis, technique chipboard altéré et badge 1 motif. 

Voici le magnifique badge cœur:

Merci de votre visit et bon défi du mois, venez participer en grand nombre !

March challenge for More Than Words challenge blog

It's challenge time at More than Words and this one took me out of my comfort zone. Oh how I love challenges.


Comfortable to me is arriving home from work, slipping into some comfy pyjamas, warms socks and making a hot tea. This in my winter routine, and how I can bare our Canadian winters.

I seldom do this, but this stunning picture is from Pinterest, unfortunately I was not able to find the source, but It truly represented my feeling of comfortable.

I like adding sprays on my background. For this layout I used Lindy's T-Bird Turquoise and Gag me with a spoon gray.

I just LOVE this quote on the Cuts2luv flair:

And this word sentiment from 7 Dots Studio was just perfect. I love the new Stone Cottage Northern Light collection, this background paper was perfect for a wintery layout.

And now time for the More than Words challenge board:

For my choice of the 3 colours, I got out of my comfort zone and selected: Forest Green, Mint and Grey. I seldom play with greens. 

I hope you will be playing along, I wish you
