Blog Hop Connie and Friends : This Magical Moment

Hello crafty friends ! Today I am sharing something very special with you : my very first blog hop ! The theme is Mickey or anything Disney, and I created a lovely card :  I cut an A4 sheet of paper un half and then folded one half in two: this was my card base. After that, I die cut a rectangle with polka dots as a background out of a pink piece of paper and glued it on the front of my card base. On top of it, I used a mini card with Minnie Mouse (I got rid of the back of it) and glued it on top on my dotty background. I... [Lire la suite]

Once upon a tale ...

Hello Mixed Media friends ! Today, I would like to share with you a project I really love. Soon, it will be one of my friends' birthday and I altered a notebook for her. I have been inspired by the Disney Movie "Tangled". For the cover, I used some paper clay pieces that I made with my Prima mold. I covered them with black gesso and then glued them on the front cover.  I started by applying a layer of Finnabair's Opal Magic violet blue, but ended up covering everything with Art Alchemy Sparks Iris Potion. Then I applied... [Lire la suite]

Altered gift box (celebrating birth)

Hello all ! I have been crafting a little lately, but not enough to be able to publish another article sooner. But here I am ! I have been making a gift box for my manager, as she leaves on a maternity leave soon. We wanted to make her a gifts basket, so I took the charge of the basket :) :  I bought a big round box in a shop and wanted to alter it. It was my first round box and I was very excited at the beginning. Then my feelings changed : I became a bit more reluctant to the idea as I had absolutely no clue on how I would... [Lire la suite]

Handmade Junk Journal/ Junk Journal fait main

Hello crafty friends !   For mys first post of the year, I am sharing with you my first creation of the year and my first Junk Journal ever. That's a lot of "first", isn't it ?   I did everything by myself, including the binding and the cover. It was a lot of work (about 7h I think) but I really enjoyed choosing the papers, cutting it at the size I wanted, assemble it and then decorate my journal.... So I think I will do it again :). But differently, as I cut out two spines : I wanted to hide the binding, as I don't... [Lire la suite]
