Hello and welcome!

Hi!  Welcome to a new chapter in my crafty life!  I decided to try my hand at blogging since I have been deliberating for a year now.  Misty over at MB’s Treasurista asked me to be a guest dt member for September and October and I knew this was my chance to start something special.  I am self taught in technology so I hope you will enjoy this journey with me 🙂  I will be sharing my creations and my knowledge so if there is anything you want to see or know just ask!  Have a beautiful day!

“Three Of Us” Composition Box Gina’s Designs Design Team Project

Hello my crafty friends!  I am sharing what will be my last project here with Gina 😦  But I have an exciting opportunity ahead and will still share my work through my blog and Youtube when I can 🙂  I really enjoyed creating this fun piece showcasing the Composition Box by Gina.  This picture was the perfect backdrop for my idea because my favorite number is three!

A few years ago this picture was taken with my daughter (in the middle) and her two cousins at her Birthday party.  How time flies!  I also embossed one of the banners found in the shop and framed the three beauties with a Filigree frame found in the shop as well.

On this side I added a piece of the Texture Sheets in the Swirled Hearts shape.  Just love working with these large sets!

Here is the key that I spritzed up and added to this side.  It has been so much fun working on this team and with Gina’s Designs, thank you and God Bless!

Accordion Mini Album~ Gina’s Designs/Kitty’s Scrap Post

Hello, it’s Brigitte here to share with you my accordion mini album.  I used The French Seamstress digital paper collection from Kitty’s Scrap Post as the backdrop for my mini and for Gina’s laser cuts.

I loved using the French shape set and the cameo to tie it all together.  I even used a negative cut out from the Pocket Watch Assorted Sizes as the frame for the pretty cameo.  Nothing wasted here 🙂
I just love doilies and these intricate cuts are so dainty I couldn’t leave them out!  I finished off the back with the digi papers to complete the look.  Thanks for stopping by!
xo, Brigitte

Shabby Altered Letter Gina’s Designs Laser Cuts And Kitty’s Scrap Post

Hello friends!  Today I am sharing an altered letter “G” I made for my daughter’s room.  Her name is Genevieve but we lovingly call her Gigi :).   I papered my letter with the lovely French Seamstress collection by Kitty’s Scrap Post as part of our August cross promotional.

Gina’s pieces coordinate so well with this collection I could have used them all!  I had fun altering the Steampunk Dressform,  my favorite piece.  I love the clock that comes in the set, it is the perfect size for so many projects.

The chipboard shapes take all mediums so well whether it is glitter, embossing or spraying.  So much fun!

A close up of the dressform and the hearts from the border sticks.

Thank you so much for taking a peek!  Have a beautiful weekend!  xo, Brigitte

“Beautiful” Altered Burlap Canvas Design Team Project Gina’s Designs

Hello crafty friends!  I have a burlap canvas to share with you today featuring my daughter’s first grade class photo beautifully highlighted with Gina’s laser cuts.

I primed the canvas in spots with Gesso and sprayed the colors I chose as a base for the canvas and began applying all the pieces in my vision 🙂  I primed all of the laser cuts with Gesso and used sprays and embossing powders until I got the desired results for each piece.

Here I embossed the smallest Skeleton Clock in this set and layered the clock hands from the shapes set followed by a butterfly from the Butterflies and Dragons set.  The Leafy Cluster is the base layer and was sprayed with two different colors to coordinate perfectly 🙂

And finally on the right side of the canvas I showcase the banner border which I cut to fit and the “Beautiful” phrase from the Words and Phrases 1 set.  I am so happy with how this came out and would not have been able to make it happen without Gina’s designs!

Thank you for taking a peek, hope you like it!  xo, Brigitte

Trim Organizer Design Team Project For Gina’s Designs

Hello to my crafty friends!  I am here to share my trim organizer and spool shaped cards from Gina’s shop.  I had such fun putting this together piece by piece,  and seeing it come alive with papers and pearls and the beautiful filigree frame which adorns the front of the organizer.
I also papered the inside of the organizer shown here.
Next up are the beautiful set of spools used to hold your trims neatly all in one place.  I must say I need at least a half a dozen of these organizers to keep my laces at bay lol!
I papered the spools as well and added a lace detail to the tops for some added interest.  I made “bottle cap” charms with Gina’s latest design and added them on top of the lace to mimic tabs.
