Dream Theme Blog Hop #2 : Small gifts

14800898_10154607950732020_950912843_n

Hello!

Welcome to our new Dream Theme Blog Hop! This month’s theme is particularly fitting for me. As a matter of fact, I’m leaving my job as a Social Worker at a teen shelter in a week, and I wanted to create something to express how much I enjoyed  working with my colleagues, and meeting so many lovely teens. My job is quite hard, but so rewarding and I’ll miss them A LOT. I wanted to make something special for everyone, which would offer me the opportunity to hide a personnal message as well as a little treat. So… small gifts it is 🙂

If you’re coming from my beloved friend Tracy May, you’re already hopping, otherwise, please click on the blog list to start.

Well I’m feeling a bit emotional here, but I thought the little houses from the Home Sweet Home boxes were perfect to remind how much our shelter could feel like home when life happened to be hard for the teens. We had lots of fun together, laughter, cooking, and I know I will deeply miss them.

Here is what I created for each teen of my group (10) :

that’s a whole neighbourhood lol 😉

(sorry for the poor quality of the photo, I had to take photos with my phone… I’ take more later, I’ve kept one little house for myself as a model !)

I’m making some for my colleagues too…

I used the “Home sweet home” bundle, and the heart embossing folder for the roof.

Thank you for visiting! you can now hop to the lovely Amy Koenders ! Show her some love !

Fancy Folds Blog Hop #11 : Pop-up book card

FF banner bigToday is our blog hop #11, and we’re showing a Pop-up Book Card !
If you’re coming from the talented Tanja, then you’re already hopping. If not, you can find all the blogs list at the end of this post. You don’t want to miss one as everybody’s got some fabulous cards to show you!
I didn’t know what a pop-up book card was, so I had to “Pinterest” it 😉 Turns out it’s another fun fold card : when you open the card, the inside shows a kind of book in the center… how fun is that! 😀
Here is my take on it:
Shimmer and Shine - Fancy Folds Blog Hop : Pop-up book card
this card showcases the beautiful set Jar of Love. I think it’s a very versatile one, and I enjoyed playing with flowers. The colours I picked are Blushing Bride, Sweet Sugarplum, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Rich Razzleberry. Oh, and a little bit of Mint Macaron <3. The DSP is “Blooms and Bliss”.

A “fairy” sweet Tinkerbell birthday party for my daughters

Hello!

October is a busy month for our family, as our two daughters were born in October, 2 years apart. This year, I wanted to make a party for both as they are in the same preschool and they share friends and fun during school days 🙂

My daughters are fond of princesses, fairies and magic, so I went for a Tinkerbell theme for their birthday party. These are the invites they gave to their friends:

Shimmer and Shine - a "fairy" sweet birthday party

Shimmer and Shine - a "fairy" sweet birthday party

The little fairy comes from the Pixie Dust stamp set from Avery Elle. The cloud border is from Lawn Fanw, and so is the star background stamp. The “Invitation” die cut is from Toga.

I had lot of fun setting up the table, everything had to be color coordinated.

Shimmer and Shine - a "fairy" sweet birthday party

So green clear plates, golden glasses, green butterfly sequins, green and gold glitter… you name it. The girls were all dressed as princesses or fairies!

We even had some “Pixie Dust” for real in these little glass drops… so cool!

The 8 little girls made their own magic wand, and sprinkled some pixie dust on them…

Shimmer and Shine - a "fairy" sweet birthday party

Well… we’re all exausted but happy tonight… the girls had a blast! I wonder what I’ll make next year for their birthday party… but until then, I’ve got Halloween to keep me busy hehehe 😀

thank you for visiting!

Hello!

Welcome to our new Dream Theme Blog Hop! Every month, we’re going to explore a theme and give you inspiration for your paper creations. This month, we’ve chosen an important one: Christmas! If you want to get ready for the Holidays, please follow our blog hop and enjoy all the beautiful creations we’ve made especially for you!

If you’re coming from my beloved friend Tracy May, you’re already hopping, fantastic! otherwise, please click on the blog list to start.

Here is what I came up with: bear hugs for everybody !

Shimmer and Shine - Bear Hugs - Dream Theme Blog Hop : Christmas

I used Fa-la-la-la Friends from Stampin’up, with the coordinating dies. I love the festive fish lol, had to make it the star of my background 😉 The bears were coloured with Promarkers. The little star comes from the Totally Trees stamp set.

This is the inside. I like to create a matching inside, I think it gives a really nice finishing touch.

Sleep countdown

Hi !

The project I’m showing today is a sleep countdown for a little girl who needed something to help her wait for a very big event. So her mummy asked me to make a sleep countdown.

Here is what I came up with:

Shimmer and Shine - Sleep countdown with Lawn Fawn critters

There is a little tab to open every night, to discover what’s hidding inside.

Shimmer and Shine - Sleep countdown with Lawn Fawn critters

Of course I had to use some Lawn Fawn critters because they’re just perfect for this kind of project :). A magnet holds the tab.

Shimmer and Shine - Sleep countdown with Lawn Fawn critters

Here is the scene when it’s all open: a bright and cheery world 🙂

Shimmer and Shine - Sleep countdown with Lawn Fawn critters

A close-up…

Supplies:

  • Stamps: Lawn Fawn Critters in the forest, LF Hello Baby
  • Dies: LF Spring Showers, LF Puffy Cloud Borders, LF Grassy Borders, My Favorite Things Stitched Rainbow, Infocrea Tree
  • Inks: Tim Holtz Seedless Preserves
  • Promarkers
  • Zig Wink of Stella
