Mothers Love Layout - Guest Designer - Nicole Doiron

Hello Everyone

We have a super duper Guest Designer today! Welcome Nicole Doiron, we are so thrilled that you are sharing your creativity with us here today! ;-)

Nicole is very well known in the scrapping world and really has such a beautiful style! ;-)


Here's a little about Nicole.


Hi! I am Nicole Doiron, am 41 years old and have lived in Eastern Canada all my life. Having been a fan of the Berry71bleu challenges for years, I was thrilled to receive an invitation to Guest Design this month, especially since I absolutely love this month's challenge. I have been introduced to scrapbooking by a friend in 2005 and, always having been a very creative person, I immediately fell head over heels in love with this hobby. In 2011, I started a blog because I wanted to participate in my very first challenge. I find that challenges are the best inspiration and at Berry71blue, each challenge month after month is unique and so much fun.

Although I tend to prefer shabby chic romantic creations, my creative style is very versatile and adapts itself constantly to my moods and the themes of my pictures. One project may be fun and colorful, while another may turn out vintage and elegant. I tend to use a lot of different pattern papers and embellishments - the more, the better! - and I love to dabble in mixed media. I love hand stitching on my pages, using templates to create textured backgrounds as well as trying all sorts of different techniques. My favorite scrapbooking products are flowers and laser-cut chipboard!

If you like my layout today, I hope that you will visit my blog at http://scrap-utopia.blogspot.com to see more. I also have a FB page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Scrap-Utopia/508848229167055) on which I share all my work. You can also find me on Pinterest (http://www.pinterest.com/nicutopia/my-creations/) and Instagram (https://instagram.com/scraputopia).

Thank you Berry71bleu for this awesome GDT opportunity!

Nicole created this stunning and beautiful page! ;-)


Now, let's talk a little bit more about my layout based on the May challenge which is all about paying tribute to MOTHERS. I didn't have to dig deep into my stash of papers and pictures to find the perfect combination for this project. I knew I wanted to make a layout about my own mother who is very dear to my heart and who has always been my best friend, and I just happened to have a beautiful picture of her that I was saving for a special layout. It went perfectly with these pretty Tea-Thyme from Prima. I used the Prima May BAP sketch challenge always as inspiration for the design. Therefore, most of the products used from the paper to the flowers to all the bling comes from Prima. I added some journaling on the tag and slipped the tag behind the main flower cluster. For those of you who might be familiar with my style, you'll recognize my signature style per se, which is to dab white paint pretty much all over my page, embellishments and all, to soften everything up and give it a whitewash effect. I really love how this page turned out and I think it is fit for a Queen... my Mom who is the Queen of my heart! I feel so blessed to have her in my life.

Here's some close-ups.






Thanks so much Nicole, for this special, treasured and fabulous page! ;-)

There is a "wee" amount of time to still create something for this challenge. 
So you will have to be quick and upload your project asap! ;-)

Together - A Layout by Cathi


All About Mom - Pay tribute to your own mom or create a project based on your own thoughts & feelings about being a mom.


My layout is all about my wishes for my children, I have used some great quote stickers from 7 Dots Studio to share some of my hopes and wishes for my children: "dream without fear", "love without limits", "why stop dreaming?". I chose a photo of my girls and I much younger (and me much thinner!) and used gorgeous 7 Dots Studio paper.


Here you can see the gorgeous rectangular striped rectangle chippie and heart confetti I used from Um Wow Studio I also used a gorgeous Handmade flower from a Zeus and Zoe kit I purchased.


Another fun Zeus and Zoe jeweled embellishment here, along with some flowers from my stash and more Um Wow Studio heart confetti. I used a mask and some Shimmerz Texturez to add some texture to my layout. Behind the tag are a few private thoughts about motherhood and my two gorgeous girls. I hope you like it and will consider joining in with us these last few days of May!

Timeless Grace by Mandy

Happy Hello Friends!
 
Today I'm sharing my take on this month's lovely challenge hosted by Kay!
 
I decided to create a page using a photo of my mom and my grandmother.....My mom is very young in the photo.  I called this page "Timeless Grace" because both my mom and grandmother are named Grace.  I have fond memories taking "mini" vacations at my grandmother's home in the Summer time.  I always loved to look at her jewelry and perfume bottles when I was a child.  She is greatly missed.
I altered the beautiful chipboard clock frame provided by UmWowStudio. (This month's design team sponsor)  Thank you!  I also altered various chipboard shapes they provided.
The gorgeous paper I used for this project is from 7 Dots Studio.  It's called "Destination Unknown"
 
Below is this month's beautiful mood board.


All About Mom - May2015 Challenge by Kay
All About Mom - Pay tribute to your own mom or create a project based on your own thoughts & feelings about being a mom.

The mood board was created with several thoughts & quotes on mom or motherhood along with photos that Kay felt represented the bond between a mother & child.

Altered Frame - Guest Designer - Maja Nowak

Hello Berry71Bleu Fans

Welcome to Saturday and welcome to a post where we say hello to a wonderful and fabulous Guest Designer - Maja Nowak.


Here's a little more about this amazing designer.

My name's Maja Nowak, I'm a wife to a wonderful supporting husband and a mom to two boys. We live in the South of Poland. I've always been crafty in one way or another, I've had episodes of knitting, cross-stitching, painting drawing and even a decoupage period - until in 2008 I came across the word "scrapbooking" in the Internet and was lost for good :) My style is a combination of the romantic vintage with a more modern, boyish look, i.e. you'd often  find metal charms, sprocket gears and screw brads mixed with roses and lace in my creations. Luckily for me, my boys don't mind flowers in their layouts, so I take advantage of that until I can :)
I'm happy to be joining Berry71Bleu for this inspiring moodboard - thank you Denise for inviting me!


Maja created this altered frame.


This is so soft, delicate and so full of detail.
Absolutely beautiful!

Thanks so much Maja for creating this gorgeous piece for us.

So now it's your turn.
We would love to see your inspiration from the mood board this month.
