Ma première page!

Je l'ai faite pour Mon Scrapbook, boutique pour laquelle je fais la correction des articles. J'avais choisi mes papiers mais je n'avais pas d'idée précise en tête. J'étais en train de fouiner dans des blogs à la recherche d'un sketch quand j'ai eu un flash. Finalement, je me suis fait mon propre sketch. Le coeur et les tourbillons sont faits d'enveloppes de pailles récupérées. Les enveloppes de mes pailles à smoothies!

J'adore les smoothies au thé vert. Je me fais souvent demander quelle saveur c'est, et je m'amuse à dire aux gens que c'est un smoothie aux épinards, rien pour voir leur tête.

J'ai eu du mal à prendre la photo! J'étais presque prête à ajouter ma page à l'article du blog de la boutique quand je me suis rendue compte que j'avais oublié le titre. Finalement, le titre de mon blog est bien choisi!

An altered box

There's a bit of everything on this box. I started with old book pages, then layered gesso, patterned paper, magazine pages, stickers, etc. I also added crackle paint, Stickles, Dimensional pearls, a Radiant Rain dauber, rub-ons and thickers. I did all sides, even the bottom. The inside hasn't been altered yet. This box was a work-in-progress for several months. I may still add to it.

"Cossins" is French slang for stuff, or things.

My very first mini-album

I was very much at the last minute when I made this mini. I believe I made it on the 23rd of December last year, in 7 hours, non stop. What took me the longest time was to select which photo I was going to use, with which papers. The rest just flowed. I'd been doing scrapbooking for 3 months when I did this mini.

I purchased an accordion album, and since there was no time to alter the cover, I left it as is, only adding a picture on each side, with a metal frame and cut-out images from a patterned paper (Night light from October Afternoon) The album was purchased in advance, but when I sat down to make it, it was too late to buy any missing supplies (like alphas!!). I had to make do!

Each side of the mini was devoted to one of my sister's two kids.

Let's start with G's side.

Now for M's side...

A long overdue post...

I've recently had to chance to take pictures of some of the cards I made and gave away to my family, as well as the mini-album I made for my sister for Christmas last year. Check it out.

This one was for my parents' anniversary. All papers are Basic Grey Periphery. I think it's the most beautiful card I've ever made.

This is the card I posted on April 4th 2009 (I know, I know), it's not in pristine condition, but you can finally see the real colors.

This next card was for my nephew's birthday. I believe I made this card in my first scrapbooking class.

This next one contained theatre tickets that I got for my niece and nephew for Christmas last year. There's a small pocket inside to hold the tickets.

That's it for now! I'll post the mini album tomorrow.
