December Week 4 LGS sketch: Just saying Hi !

I have done a layout today using the Let's Get Sketchy (LGS) December week 4 sketch and some old papers from Basic Grey (Max and Whiskers collection).  I used both sides of my papers to add more pattern, and because I had not much left… but I like the white space!  I also cut some elements with my Cricut (circle, title…) and added a lot of Dylusion to create this hue. I used the extra from that mix and paint brushed it on the back with a Crafter's workshop stencil.

The embellishments are a mix of Basic Grey "Max and Whiskers" with some Studio Calico and Prima Wood chips, pearls, buttons, washi tape… here is the result:

LGS December week 3: 11 mois

This past thursday marked the beginning of my well deserved 2 weeks holiday vacations. These past few months have been hectic… so I decided to take it easy for at least 4 first days: take care of myself, rest and relax and that wouldn't be happening without a little scrapbooking.
(Except for the fact that Mother Nature decided we would be drowned in snow and freezing rain so I still have my daily exercise by going outside and shovelling … I have to admit it's a bit much…)

Please let me share this layout about my Australian Sheppard dog Melba enjoying the winter weather and the warm sun

I used a sketch from Let's Get Sketchy December week 3. This team of creative ladies is soooo sweet… Go check out what they did here

Creative Scrappers sketch 257: 3 dents

I had fun using this December #257 sketch from Creative Scrappers and these days I love getting re-acquainted with old techniques (like stamping those flowers with Watermark ink… where had you been all that time !?) It must be the winter season making me go through all my scrapbook stuck and falling in love again with old paper collections like this  "My Minds Eye" Bloom and Grow …. 

This is my take on the layout sketch: it can be used in so many ways. Go over and see the other variations created by the Design team and other scrappers !

LCOM sketch 49: I love New York

Welcome !

This past week has been cold and snowy here in Quebec, aside from work, I just felt like wearing pj's or sweats and crop while drinking warm beverages. For this page I used Studio Calico's Snippet papers, Bazzil cardstock, Dylusions inks and Doodlebug embellishments, and using this Let's Capture Our Memories (LCOM) Sketch 49 by Melissa Williams.

(Please forgive me for the all the flash reflection in the pictures. You may recognize : Central Park, Metropolitain museum and 5th avenue.)

Here is my layout: I love New York
