To Paris with Love

It’s Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada.  We have a lot to be thankful for.  At least I know I do and I am looking forward to some yummy dinners with family and friends.

Today our challenge for you at Creative Corner Challenges is to create a project that is not a card.  It could be a layout, an ATC, a bookmark, altered project, the ideas are limitless.

Lately, thanks to Swap-bot.com, I have been making a lot of ATC’s and altered envelopes (or Mail Art as the group calls them).  Today I am sharing a mail art with the theme of Paris/French.

HPIM1258

 

I created this envelope with my envelope maker first of all.  It’s 5×7.  I then stamped some french script from hero arts all over the inside and out.  I then had some other french stamps from Inque Boutique that I used to stamp on it and then went through my stash looing for anything with a french feel to it.  I found some die cuts, some France stamps and some swirls.  You can’t see it, but on the back is a big postcard of Paris 🙂  I have been to Paris and absolutely love it.  I hope to go back again one day.

I hope you will stop by the blog to see what the rest of my team has created and also to play along with us.

Generations

Good Morning everyone!  It’s been awhile since I’ve posted.  I’ve been so busy with work as well as family sickness that I’ve not had a lot of time to create and post lately.

Our new challenge is up at Use it Tuesday this week.  Our theme You Can’t Touch This, challenges you to use a beloved favorite that you’ve just not been able to break down and use yet….go ahead, it’s relatively painless 🙂

For me, I have only 3 sheets of this gorgeous Madame Boutique paper by Kaisercraft.  I also have some matching die cuts and I’ve been holding onto them for a long time.  After the initial shock of breaking into them wore off, I was glad I did use them for this layout.  The picture was on a different layout that I did, but never really liked.  I really like this one so much better.

This picture is of me as a baby with my mom, my grandma, and my great-grandma holding me.   This is one of my favorite pictures of all time, the 4 generations of women on my mother’s side.  Sadly my great-grandma passed when I was very young so I don’t have a lot of pictures of her.  All the other elements on this page are from my stash.  The paper flowers I made with some old book pages that were sent to me in a swap!  I really love how this turned out.  I hope you will stop by the blog and play with us.  There are a lot of great projects this week, AND we are having a design team call!!!  All the details are on the blog! I do hope you will apply.

Well I am happy to say that I won Week 3 of Challenge Masters Project Scrapbook.  We had to create a double layout and for bonus points it had to mirror.  Easier said than done but I am thrilled with how it turned out!
