A layout for a french challenge

I take part in a challenge organized by a french forum La Fée du Scrap, and here is my first layout :

Papers : Patterned papers by Kesi'art, Swirlcards and Infocrea - Tools : dies by Quickutz (alphabet Blossom), Stampin'Up and Kesiart.  Other : vellum, felt, button, sequins, ribbon Stickles and sewing machine.

The title reads "Summer 2013" and the journaling is about my third son's love for merry-go-round.

We had to follow this sketch very closely (rounded corners, proportions and so on). Firstly, I was a little puzzled to have so many obligations for following the sketch, but finally, I loved to look at all the other layouts, so similar and so different... It was easier to see everyone's style and it was really inspiring !

Voici donc ma page pour le challenge de La Fée du Scrap, d'après un sketch de Myriam, qu'il fallait suivre le plus précisément possible si l'on ne voulait pas s'attirer les foudres de Kestafée !
 Au début, ça m'a fait bizarre autant de contraintes (bords arrondis obligatoires, respect des proportions, etc.), et puis finalement, j'ai beaucoup aimé regarder toutes ces pages à la fois si proches et si différentes, c'était beaucoup plus facile de saisir certains traits du style propre à chacune, et donc très inspirant !

Sketch-N-Scrap : a card inspired by a layout sketch !

Are you sometimes inspired by layout sketches to make cards ? As for me, I can use sketches for everything : album cover, mini album's inside pages, cards or layouts, and I don't mind if it's a card or a layout sketch !


So even if this month "Inspired by" sketch on Sketch-N-Scrap blog was a layout sketch, I made a card :

card with Simple Stories Homespun papers
Papers : Patterned papers by Simple Stories and carstock by American Crafts - Embellishments : flowers by Florileges Design, brads and lace by Artemio - Stamp by Denim Tampon and Sugar Nellie ("Country garden") - Other : stitching and promarkers.

And here is the beautiful sketch, inspired by a layout by Surama :


Don't forget that this month, you might win a 20$ gift certificate offered by Creative embellishments !

To the amusement Park

This is the last "old" project not published yet. It was for a challenge on my favorite forum : I think it was about using trends like sequins but I don't remember what else !

layout with Pink Paislee papers
Papers : Patterned papers by Pink Paislee, cardstock by American Crafts and glittered paper by Artemio - Tools : dies by Quickutz and Docrafts and edge punch by EK Success - Stamp by Florileges Design - Embellishment : rhinestone ribbon by Webster's Pages - Other : machine sewing, dymo, eyelets, twine and a sequins.

Et voici enfin la dernière de mes réalisations-faites-depuis-longtemps-mais-jamais-publiées, une double page réalisée dans le cadre d'un challenge sur mon forum préféré. Je ne me souviens plus exactement, mais je crois qu'il s'agissait d'intégrer des éléments tendances, ici des sequins.

Champion !

I did this layout a long time ago but I never published it on my blog. I used a sketch by PageMaps but I don't remember which one.

PageMaps sketch
Papers : Patterned papers by Lily Bee Design and cardstock by American Crafts - Tools : dies by Quickutz and My Favorite Things and punch by Mc Gill - Embellishments : Maya Road envelope - Other : machine sewing and stitching, dots and Glossy Accent (Ranger).

Cette page a été réalisée il y a plusieurs mois mais je ne l'avais encore jamais publiée sur mon blog. J'ai utilisé un sketch de PageMaps mais je retrouve plus lequel.
