Season's greetings

Tell me that I am not the only one who still have lots of cards to make/send ? For this one, I was inspired by the december Sketch-N-Scrap sketch :

cardmaking pink paisley
Supplies : Papers : cardstock by Toga and patterned papers by Pink Paisley (collection "Snow village") - Embellishments : pearls by Artemio and ribbon - Tools : star dies by Kesi'art - Stamp : Artemio - Other : felt, twine and machine sewing.

 I used a big gold ribbon in my favorite way : folded and stitched (ribbon is also this week's inspiration on Use Your Stuff blog). The little white star is cut into felt.

A box to keep medals

Today on Use Your stuff blog, Lynne suggested to scrapbook sports : I immediatly thought about my oldest son who started to play sport this year !
But I haven't any photo yet, so I decided to embellish a box to keep his medals.

scrapbooking box
Supplies used : Patterned papers by Little Yellow Bicycle - Dies by Kesi'art (stars) and Quickutz (alphabet) - Others : buttons.
(The photo inside is an old one, while waiting for a sport photo...).

Aujourd'hui, sur le blog Use Your stuff, Lynne vous propose de scrapper du sport : j'ai tout de suite pensé à mon fils aîné qui vient de commencer le sport cette année ! J'ai décidé de lui décorer une boîte pour y garder ses médailles (la photo à l'intérieur est une ancienne photo que je remplacerai par une photo de lui au sport dès que j'en aurai fait développer...).
Quand j'ai appris que la marque Little Yellow Bicycle avait été vendue, j'ai eu envie d'utiliser ces papiers que j'adore. J'espère que les designers de LYB continueront de créer des papiers, j'aimais beaucoup leur style !

When I knew that the Little Yellow Bicycle brand name was sold (to "Momenta" ?), I really wanted to use these old papers : I love them ! I hope that the LYB designers will continue to make papers, even with another brand...

Sketch-N-Scrap is a challenge blog that offers great sketches for cards and layouts, and there are tons of inspiration ! And also prizes... Here is the first card sketch for December :

I thought it would look great as cover for my december journal : I love how it allows several of the patterns of the mini album to show, and to give the album's feeling !

En fait, j'avais tellement hâte de commencer que j'ai utilisé le sketch de Décembre comme inspiration pour la couverture de mon December daily :

december daily

I can't wait to start, but a little bird told me that there will be exciting news on the Sketch and Scrap blog soon, so stay tuned...
