Happy Sunday, friends!

It’s Elodie here today and I’m happy to be back with you to share a new page for stickers week! This time, I used the beautiful Wild at Heart collection, including chipboard and accessory stickers, along with a photo of my oldest daughter snapped in Turin, during our road trip around northern Italy last spring.

As I had no precise idea or design in mind, I started by gathering supplies that I wanted to use and that would go with my pic. The gorgeous Luscious and Grow Wild papers would be great for the background and I just had to include fussy cut flowers from the Memento sheet!

After a little brainstorming session, I decided to go for a circular design. I drew a circle on the top right-hand corner of the Luscious paper, poked holes with a pin following the pencil lines, erased them and stitched along using white thread. I then cut off a part of the Luscious sheet and backed it with the Grow Wild paper.

Next, I matted the photo with a card from the Patchwork cut apart sheet and sticked it in the center of the stitched circle with foam squares. I framed it with a couple of fussy cut flowers from the Memento paper and chipboard frames, including one from the chipboard stickers sheet. The Wild at Heart color palette is just perfect for this lovely photo of my girl!

For the title, I used chipboard alphabet stickers that I placed on the stitched circle. I love how soft these pink on pink letters look! I then added more Wild at Heart stickers to embellish my page. I adorned the pic with a tab and a pennant from the accessory stickers sheet and I placed chipboard hearts and word stickers on the frames. I also added chipboard butterflies on the fussy cut flowers and tucked a label sticker with the date under the photo.

I felt like my layout needed a little something more and I decided to use the scraps from the Luscious sheet I used for the background. I cut the corner I had left in half, folded the edges a little bit and placed it on the page with the floral pattern facing up. Last but not least, I added a bit of shine to my layout with a couple of Wild at Heart enamel dots. These sparkly cuties are the perfect finishing touch!

I hope my page inspires you to play with CVS stickers. Accessory, alphabet, chipboard or washi stickers: there’s a lot to choose from and have fun with! Thanks so much for stopping by today! Wishing you a lovely day and a great week ahead!

Hi friends!

It’s Elodie here today with a girly page using the fantastic You Rock collection and a cool photo of my little one snapped in Verona last spring. Isn’t she rad?!

To echo the brick wall on the pic, I decided to go for a color blocking design using the super cute You Rock washi tape stickers that I placed on a white cardstock sheet. I matted the photo with the Stripped paper and adhered it on the right hand side of my washi wall with foam squares to make it pop.

I backed the white cardstock with the Plus One sheet and its pretty wood grain. I love how it nicely frames the page and gives it more warmth!

For the title, I used one of the awesome wood veneer words along with alphabet stickers from the Hello Lovely collection and I placed them near the photo. I even found a way to use the “That’s my boy” rubber charm by crossing out the word “boy” with an enamel shape!

My next step was to embellish the page with pretty You Rock goodies: wood veneer and paper stars, a lovely flair button and die cuts from the ephemera pack. I also adorned the photo with paper corners and a wood veneer pennant.

I then stamped the date on a tab from the accessory stickers sheet, tucked it under the pic and I finished off my layout with droplets of black ink.

I really enjoy using this boy collection and make it work with pictures of my girls. I hope this page inspires you to use You Rock for girly projects too! Thanks so much for visiting the blog today! Have a great day!

Hello everyone!

Elodie with you today to share a new layout featuring the beautiful Wild at Heart collection. This week, we’re focusing on multiple photos. For my page, I used two pics of my oldest girl making stone cakes a few years back. So sweet!

I had no precise idea or design in mind when I started my layout. I just wanted to use white cardstock for the background and gorgeous Wild at Heart supplies. I pushed paper around on my page for a little while until I came up with this grid design using my photos and two cute Wild at Heart chipboard frames.

Next, I went through all the pretty Wild at Heart papers looking for a little something to spice up the white background a bit more. I came across the beautiful Bohemian sheet and cut strips following the chevron pattern. I placed one strip at the top and another one at the bottom of the page. Just what I needed!

I matted the photos with patterned paper cards that I cut out from the Patchwork cut apart sheet and adhered them with foam squares for dimension. I also backed the pretty chipboard frames with the reverse sides of the Luscious and Mariposa papers and I adorned them with butterflies that I fussy cut from the Patchwork sheet.

For the title, I used wood veneer words that I placed on the frames. I then got busy embellishing my page with super pretty Wild at Heart goodies: fussy cut flowers from the Luscious paper, die cuts from the ephemera pack, stickers from the accessory stickers sheet and another lovely fussy cut butterfly.

Last but not least, I added typed journaling strips under the pics and the frames, a couple of sparkly enamel dots and my layout was complete!

I am so in love with this amazing collection! I hope my page inspires you to create with it and use multiple photos on your projects too! Thank you for joining me today! Wishing you a lovely day!

Hi CVS friends!

It’s Elodie here and I’m happy to be sharing another summer layout with you today. This time, I used the awesome You Rock collection and a photo of my girls with their dad on the beach a few weeks ago.

I went with blue and white for the background and backed a large strip from the Night Sky paper with the Starshine paper. How pretty is this dark blue? I love the way it nicely frames the page and gives it more depth!

I usually start a layout with a design in mind. This time, I decided to create waves on my page to go with the photo. I drew and cut circles in several You Rock papers: Starshine, In Line, Stripped, Night Sky, Random and Plus One. I cut them again in half, folded them gently for dimension and placed them like scallops on the left hand side of the page.

Next, I matted the pic with the bright In Line and Galactic papers and adhered it with foam squares in the center of my paper sea. I really like how the black and white photo pops against the colorful You Rock papers!

For the title, I used a wood veneer word that I spiced up with a cute flair button and I placed it on the bottom right hand side of the page. I then adorned the pic with a sticker from the accessory stickers sheet and a fussy cut star and sprinkled a couple of word stickers on my paper waves. I finished off my layout by adding more pretty You Rock embellies near the photo and around the title: more fussy cut stars from the Starshine paper, shiny enamel shapes, wood veneer stars and a die cut from the ephemera pack that I tucked under the pic.

I just can’t get enough of the bright colors and fun patterns of this collection and I hope my page inspires you to play with it! Thank you for stopping by the CVS blog today! Have an awesome day!

Shine Bright | Hello Lovely | Elodie Lusseau

Happy Monday, crafty peeps!

It’s Elodie on the blog today with a new layout featuring the super pretty Hello Lovely collection that you can find here in the CVS online store. I played along with last week’s summer theme and used a large photo of my little one playing on the beach a couple of years ago.

To go with this cute summery pic, I wanted to create a little scene and decided to make a shining sun on my page. And this design was just perfect for my little miss sunshine!

I started with the background and backed a piece of the Lucky Dip paper with the Flower Patch paper and its beautiful floral pattern.

To make the sun, I drew a circle on one side of the photo using a pan as a template and cut it following the pencil lines. I then handstitched the borders with white thread and placed it on the background with foam squares to make it stand out.

My next step was to embellish the borders of the picture with gorgeous Hello Lovely embellies: die cuts from the ephemera pack, enamel dots and a flair button for the title.

For the sunbeams, I used paper banners from the ephemera pack as well as strips that I cut out in the Delightful, Glimmer, Confetti, Lucky Dip and Flower Patch papers. I stamped the date on one of the banners, I gently folded up the sides of the strips to add a little more dimension to my layout and tucked them under the photo. I love how the colorful embellies and paper strips pop against the black and white photo and background!

I had a lot of fun creating this summer page and I hope it inspires you to go big and use large photos on your layouts! Thanks so much for visiting the CVS blog today! Wishing you a lovely day and a great week ahead!

Sweet Together | Wild at Heart | Elodie Lusseau

By | 2017-07-01T00:13:32+00:00 July 3rd, 2017|Design Team, Inspiration, Wild at Heart|

Hello everyone!

Elodie here today with a new page using the gorgeous Wild at Heart collection and a picture of my girls snapped in Turin back in April. This week is going to be all about the story on the CVS blog. For my layout, I went with typed journaling and told the story of the last day of our road trip to Italy last spring.

To echo this cute photo of my girls together, I went with the idea of the ampersand. I drew one on the beautiful Luscious paper using a template and cut it with craft scissors. I then layered it on squares that I cut out in the Grow Wild and Mariposa papers. I love the soft look of these pretty papers together!

I matted the pic with a piece of the Patchwork paper, placed it on the ampersand with foam squares and tucked a tag and a die cut from the ephemera pack under it. I then got busy adorning my paper ampersand with pretty Wild at Heart embellies: chipboard frames, fussy cut butterflies from the Mariposa paper, die cuts, a rubber charm, a chipboard piece, a wood veneer heart, a sticker and a wood veneer word for the title as well as a couple of enamel dots to add a bit of shine.

I don’t always use journaling on my layouts and, when I do, I tend to go for typed journaling. I usually print it on regular paper and cut it into strips that I glue only in the middle to add a little more dimension to my projects. Here, I placed my journaling strips on the left hand side of the page.

At that point, I felt like something was missing and decided to add a pop of color on the right side of the page with a piece of the lovely Double Dot paper. My layout was finally complete!

I hope this page inspires you to tell the story behind the photo and add journaling to your projects! Thank you so much for joining me today! Have a fantastic day!

Epic Fall | You Rock, Wild at Heart & Make A Wish | Elodie Lusseau

By | 2017-06-15T23:53:39+00:00 June 17th, 2017|Design Team, Inspiration, Make A Wish, Wild at Heart, You ROCK|

Happy Saturday, everyone!

Elodie here with you today and I’m happy to be back to share a new layout using the You Rock collection along with some Wild at Heart and Make A Wish goodies. This week is going to be all about seasons on the blog. Summer is almost here but I felt like making a fall page with a lot of pretty leaves and this cute photo of my little one snapped last October.

I started by drawing leaves using templates on several You Rock papers: Starshine, In Line, This Way, Stripped, Random and Galactic. I cut and handstitched them, adding transparent sequins on some of them. I then placed the leaves on the beautiful Experimental paper that I picked for my background. The pretty colors and woodgrain of the You Rock line are just perfect for fall pics!

I matted the photo with a piece of the Plus One paper and I adorned it with You Rock enamel shapes, a die cut from the ephemera pack and a tab from the Wild at Heart accessory stickers sheet. I then adhered it in the center of the page with foam squares to make it stand out.

For the title, I used a lovely You Rock rubber charm and Make A Wish alphabet stickers that I placed on a leaf. I then adorned other leaves with a You Rock die cut and word stickers, a Wild at Heart flair button and a paper piece from the ephemera pack and a shiny Make A Wish rhinestone.

 

To complete my fall page, I sprinkled embellies from the three collections on the background: You Rock enamel shapes, Wild at Heart die cuts and wood veneer hearts as well as Make A Wish sequins.

I had so much fun mixing these collections and I think they go beautifully together! I hope my page inspires you to mix and match CVS lines too!

Thank you for visiting the blog today! Have an awesome day!
