Montreal, New York...and a layout!

Aloha! :)

How are you doing? I'm doing good, busy with preparing my luggage for a 10 days trip to Northern America :)

On thursday, I'll be there...


Montréal...I'll be teaching classes at a crop for L'art Du Scrapbooking :)

then I'm flying to...

New York City

NEW YORK! 5 days of exhausting walking, nasty food, incredible architecture, noise, pleasure, well HAVING FUN! :D

In the meantime, here's a layout I made for Studio Calico lately...


You can peek at the mess in the background :D that's my scrappy mess.

I used the Elementary line, one of my most favorites, can't resist that Apple design!

I cut my flower with my Big Shot and a Tim Holtz Bigz die then sprayed Studio Calico Mr Huey inks to color her flower.



My title was made with the Noah clear alpha stamp...


Nice, uh? :)

See you around soon!

Inspiration Tuesday with a very special guest :)

Hello everyone!

Today is a new Inspiration Tuesday by one of my very special guests and all I can say is that you're going to love this one :) Her name is Anne-Lise, she's french and one of my most favorite scrappers. Her style never ceases to amaze me and I have to say that I'm in love with the project she has made for you today :)esp. that she scrapbooked about the palce I live, Montpellier and South of France :)



First of all, thank you Céline for inviting me today, I hope you guys are going to love my project.

To celebrate Céline's beautiful region, I made a mini album which size (6"x7") about our latest vacation in Montpellier and by focusing on 4 main landscapes there : the beaches in la Grande Motte, the vineyards, Camargue and the lake of Salagou (sooo beautiful by the way!)

TEchnique wise, I wanted to explore my BIg Shot the best way I can, so I used it to create my mini album shape, cut with it and embossed with it.

Here's what we're gonna make...



Supplies list

2 pieces of cardboard size 6"x7"

1 woodlike cardstock (available here : la fée du scrap)

1 Lime Green cardstock

4 white Bazzil

Patterened papers (My Minds Eye collection "So Sophie")

Assorted Bazzill cardstocks (brown, lime green, and different shades of blue)


Masking tape

Tim Holtz Dies ("Brackets" & "Ornemental")

Quickutz Alpha Dies alphabet : DIESEL

nestabilities Die (label n°8)

Cuttlebug embossing pads

EK punches





Your photos


1 landscape format : 6"x7" (cover photo)

4 landscape format : 5,5"x7"

5 portrait format : 5,5x4"

4 portrait format : 2,36"x1,5"

8 polaroids (small)



1 - Structure

For the main cover, the cardboard is covered by cardstock. Use Tim Hotlz die to cut the frame into it, adhere to cover and décorate your cover.

Don't forget to add your eyelet before glueing the paper on.


Same thing with the back cover : add cardstock and eyelet then glue onto cardboard.


2 - Inside pages

Here, a transparency is attach on top of a beautiful photo (that you can see through the cover by the way).



For all of the other pages, the order is always the same : double page with a flap, Bazzill page, double page with a flap, etc...



Glue a picture onto your white page (cut the bracket with a Tim Holtz die).

Cut the photo so that you have another piece of it glued on the left page (a Bazzill page).


And this is what the album looks like :)


On each flap, I added a colorful embossed cardstock to give contrast and color to my album.


I printed some digi stuff on some of my pages before cutting them, but feel free to stamp instead!


Now it's time for you to embellish and have fun!













Thank you Anne-Lise for your wonderful project!

Quickly go and visit her blog : it is SO worth seeing!

Have a good day!

Inspiration Tuesday with a very special guest ^^


Today Laure is my guest for this new Inspiration Tuesday :)

You're going to love her Clean & Simple style with her beautiful photos.

Thank you Laure for accepting my invitation :)


Thank you Céline for the invitation :) !

I've prepared a very colorful and pretty simple layout for you.

Page finale

I simply got started with Photoshop with some editing : I cropped my photos, changed their sizes and used a Vintage action to get that nice blue feel.

I copied and pasted the photos so that they were all on the same Photoshop file and then, I used a brush on top of two of the pictures.

Photo 7

Once I printed my photo, I simply chose the papers and embellishments that would look good with them.

I cut a 20 x 14 cm piece of paper into the polka dots paper and a 23 x 3 cm piece into the stripped one.

I then added the stickers and tags.

For my title, I used my Cuttlebug machine to create my letters.

and this is what my layout looks like in the middle of my creative process :

Photo 5

Don't you think there's something missing in here ?

Some sewing of course !!!

Simply take your photos off and use your sewing machine around your papers! It's ever easier to sew on paper than on fabric!

Add some stickers and brads and voilà! :)

Photo 2

I printed my journaling on white cardstock and added it onto my layout.

Use Versamark ink to stamp sentiment stamps on your layout and emboss them with clear embossing powder : you will get that nice effect on your layout.

 I hope you liked my layouts and can't wait to see what you come up with!:)

Welcome home babies!

Look who are our new residents at home! :)

Let me introduce you to Elvis and June, our two littles kitties :)

Remember when I told we found them in the middle of nowhere, along with 3 other brothers and sisters?

Well, after we decided to adopt two of them, we managed to find the other 3 happy and nice families, after we took great care of them (feeding them 5 times a day, making them pee and poop...blah blah...) :)



I'm so glad everyone found a good family :)

Hugs to you all!

Two new layouts and a new family member :)


hey there!

It's a sunny Sunday morning and I've been wanting to scrap for days!

Here are two layouts I recently made...










But you'll ask me "so why don't you just go to your scraproom and play?!" Well, I've been busy taking care of those 5 little monkeys! :D



We found them in the middle of nowhere, abandonned for days as they were crying and starving :(

So we took them and are taking care of them night and day, feeding them, cleaning them, and giving them love :)

Enjoy your sunday, I'm going to scrap with my mom this afternoon!
