First: Thanks so much for your help when it comes to the questions I had in my last post! I *think* I have it down when it comes to the meaning of “Joyeux anniversaire” and “Heureux anniversaire” (although there’s a slight conflicting feedback – so far no French people have elaborated on the finer meanings of these words, so if you have anything to add I’ll be happy to learn more about when to use what).
The ribbon I asked about indeed is seam binding (Julie Blanc: it does not seem to be taffeta to me from what I could see from googling – but thanks for the suggestion!), I even got a direct link from Anne Kristine (also known as Aksh) (who use this a lot – and quite superb at it if I may add…she’s truly amazing with the shabby style!) and have already purchased lots and lots =)
Onwards to more new stuff:
Right now Glue Arts is sponsored by Studio Calico, which meant we got to play with the October kit. Fun fun! It’s been a while since I played with a kit, and I’ve never tried Studio Calico, so yay! I must say I especially loved the products that’s Studio Calico’s own, like the graphic papers (love – I see why they fit well with American Crafts now – what I got seemed in the same gate as their graphic-oriented products).
I’ve elaborated more on the different steps of this layout in this blogpost if you’re interested.
I fell in love with these chipboard-butterflies from Sassafras! Plus this graphic card (which’s really just a note from Studio Calico or something like that)!
On this layout I mixed papers from Sassafras, Studio Calico and Basic Grey :)
This is my daughter and my nephew. Can hardly (can’t hardly??) wait to see him again in two weeks!!
