punch art: ballerina

Hi everyone,

It's been a while since I've worked with my punches so today I took them out for a spin. I created this card for a 5-year-old ballerina.

The dress was punched out of my homemade glitter cardstock and the large scallop circle punch.

Oh how I love that little rose from . It completes her outfit so beautifully.

I wanted to personalize the card with an appropriate sentiment so I created it with Word and printed it out. 

And to add to Gen's post of yesterday, here's her son William bringing me some Easter cheer... a special bunny cookie he decorated himself. Merci, mon adorable William. Stéphanie fait dire qu'il était vraiment bon (elle me l'a tout mangé!!!)


Have a nice stampin' day !!!

Easter treats

Hi everyone,

Hope everyone had avery chocolatey easter. We had a 4-day weekend with the kids and we had a lot of fun and a lot of sweets... Since I had so much chocolate to eat I didn't had time to play in my studio. Here's the creations we made this past weekend.

Those rabbits are sugar cookies, so yummy.

The kids decorated the egg shaped sugar cookies themselves with edible food writer. They were very proud to hand them to family members and loved ones telling that they did them themselves (and their crafty mom was even prouder... ;O)

Don't forget to enjoy your kids and have a nice stampin' day !!!

"ribbon" cake

Hi everyone,

I CASEd an old card of mine today. I used ribbon bits to make a 3-layer cake. The whole layout is very simple.

I made the candles with a marker and orange Stickles. In between the layers I added Liquid Appliqué to make puffy icing.

The little sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes from Stampin' Up! A few lines with a marker around the focal image completes the card.

Have a nice stampin' day !!!

Lots of bling and bright colors!

Spring cleaning...

Hi everyone,

As I was spring cleaning, I found theses little Play-Doh jars leftover from last Halloween, so I decided to dress them up for spring using papers leftovers from my scraproom.

They are really fast to make a 6" X 3/4" strip of paper and a butterfly, so easy. I think I'll make some more for easter treats.

Have a nice stampin' day !!!

a basketful of easter eggs

Hi everyone,

I really thought of was done with Easter cards. But to my surprise, today I received a last-minute order for 2 more. Here's one of them:

I totally CASEd this one from Andrea Walford. it's simply made with the Baskets and Blooms Bigz XL die for the Big Shot. Then I used a Serendipity cube stamp (honestly, it's got 4 images on the block!) and the coordinated McGill punch for the eggs. 

The paper is Bubblegum Hills from KaiserCraft and the background paper is part of the Subtles DSP pack from Stampin' Up! The sentiment is really old from PrintWorks (1993) - not sure if it's still available. A little faux stitching for a finishing touch and some bling on the egg.  Perfect for a little girl!

Have a nice stampin' day !!!

congrats on your new home

Hi everyone,

I was invited to an open house party over the weekend. My friend Michelle moved into a new house and she was having a little get-together to celebrate. With me I brought: the husband, a mexican dip, a few bottles of Smirnoff Ice and a handmade card!

This card is mega huge! I used my Cricut Expression and the Mickey and Friends cartridge to cut the house. All the cuts were made at 8-1/2" in a variety of cardstock and dsp, as you can see. Since I'm still relatively new to the Cricut world, it took me a while to figure what function keys to use and what paper to choose. The paper piecing was a bit time consuming but so worth it. The reason for so much pink? Michelle is a HUGE FAN OF PINK AND GLITTER! Even her wedding gown was pink -- ya gotta love her girl like that!

Michelle is also a customer of mine and hired me to do a custom scrapbook of their pictures of Montreal (they are ex-pat's from the UK).  So I made a pocket for a gift certificate inside the card. That was a lot of fun to make.

Have a nice stampin' day !!!

Oh so sweet Piggy Tails.

Hi everyone,

happy friday, today I'll share with you my latest scrapbook pages. A total CASE from myself from last week layout. This time a story about my little girl's piggy tails.

Here's the journaling for those of you that read french. It basically says that I'm really nuts and obsessed with my child to have curly sweet piggy tails...

The princess paper from enchanted collection of Imaginisce that I bought a long time ago even had princesses with piggy tails how appropriate !!

Have a nice stampin' day !!!
