Merry Christmas for Creative Embellishments

 It's that time of the year when we get into the festive mood. Every year I try to make a mini canvas for my mom, she is a huge fan of Christmas and loves decorating her home. This year I was inspired to make a 5 x 7 canvas with our December challenge image.


The starting point was to chose my colors for the background, I selected 3 tones of blue and one purple from my Dina Wakley acrylics.


I heat embossed the star tree and the Merry Christmas title. I chose to leave the deer natural.


Flowers are always nice to add to the artwork


The final touches are hints of Stickles for a shine effect.



Here is the challenge image:

Guest DT for Scrapki Wyzwaniowo

Hi everyone, it's a great honor to have been invited to be a guest designer in November for Scrapki Wyzwaniowo.

The challenge this month is HEXAGONS

The inspiration for this page came from this beautiful picture of Ayden, my niece's son. I am making her a 12 x 12 memories album as a gift. 


My starting point was to create a layer of hexagons (Donna Downey stencil) on my watercolor paper. Then I started building my layers of ink colors. My favorite inks are the Lindy's inks. On this page I played with Tiffanylou Blue and Sassy Saphire. In order to build up my layers of ink, I like to add the inks with a paint brush. I let each coat dry before continuing to layer. I also like to do splatters of the same inks. 


I heat embossed in silver my chipboard elements (Creative Embellishments)


I added lace flowers and this stunning Prima flower. That blue is so perfect for a boy page.


The beautiful flairs (stars, bear and bon dodo) are from my favorite brand Cuts2luv. You can find them on the etsy store here



I hope you enjoyed my page for this guest DT assignement, I wish to thank the Scrapki Wyzwaniowo team for this amazing opportunity !

Have a great day bloggers !

Celebrate 20 years for Creative Embellishments

Celebrating 20!

I love making cards & tags for my sons birthdays. This year, my eldest turned 20. Wow, I always ask myself how come time is going by so fast.

My son is a quiet young man, still very passionate about his video games, so I felt that it would be fun to make him a card with that theme. The other source of inspiration is our current passion for the Games of Thrones series, the dragon was just perfect with the film strips.


For this project I altered my items in 3 ways:

  1. Covered my film strips in black gesso
  2. Painted my star, title and dragon with Metallique Art Alchemy fresh orange paint
  3. Covered with black gesso and altered with Finnabair wax my game controls

I love the shine effect of the metallique paint


The gift tags that match are so much fun to make






I wish all of you a wonderful day !

Sweetheart for Cuts2luv and entry to Lindy's challenge




I've been making fun layouts with my niece's belly pictures all summer, now is the time to introduce you to our new family member: Ayden.

I just love the new photoshoots that they do now, he's all dressed up in a deer costume. He is just ADORABLE.


I wanted to give this layout an outdoor earthy feel. So I played with Woodgrain & a print paper, then added some leaves. I also colored some cheese cloth to add dimension and details for a woodsy feel.

I love this burlap flower, it fits perfectly with a touch of straw underneath. And what can I say about this stunning deer flair other than I am in love... I covered the leaf chipboards with a this coat of white gesso, then added touches of Lindy's ink in layers.


This second flair is also quite unite with the repetitive pattern of the deer antlers. Again you can see the leaf chipboard and some touches of straw.


This Sweetheart heat embossed title was just perfect for this page. Do you notice at the bottom, the small words? They were made by one of my good friend Edith Cloutier.


The flairs can be found here on the Cuts2luv Etsy store: Special set Christmas 2017





I would like to enter this page for the November color combo challenge. Here is the image for this month: November challenge




I played with many earth tones from my Lindy's stamp gang collections:
