challenge: inspiration francaise


I encourage you to head over immediately (if you’ve not done so already) and visit Simon Says Stamp & Show to see all of the other creations and to enter! This week’s prize (as always) is a $50 voucher to Simon Says Stamp! The winner is randomly drawn – you can enter by posting to your blog, flickr, or other site too. See the blog for entry details and rules.

This week we’re inspired by all things French! I decided to use my French General goodies (which I have, love, and have a teeny tendency to hoard!) and then I thought “why not translate my Christmas notes” into French and make a little notebook to keep in my purse with my present lists and such!


Supplies used:

My how-to is pretty simple! I used the tag packaging, stitched it on, then stamped with my french script collage stamp, and decorated!

I love how it turned out! I sealed everything with some Perfect Paper Adhesive in matte finish so that things won’t fall off when I go out shopping to get the season kicked off!

I hope you join in the challenge too!

Before I go, I want to also encourage you to check out the Simon Says Stamp blog today! I am doing a special four part series on Holiday crafting fun over there. Today, I’ve got several projects featuring Hero Arts stamps! My favorites are these:

Of course – you really can’t go wrong! I love soooo many Hero Christmas and holiday stamps – you’ll see lots of “holiday hero” posts coming here soon!! In the meantime… I wish you a happy Monday.

  1. Love your little Christmas notebook, May. The stitching looks fantastic on the cover. I love Tim’s Papillion script stamp in the background! The little embellishments and the “mes notes noel” give such great dimension and finish to your cover! <3 Candy

  2. Gorgeous! What do you use for your stitching? Just a traditional sewing machine?
    I love the look of it, but don’t have a sewing machine handy. I’ve seen the little ones, but don’t know if I want to invest in one. Such dilemmas! LOL!
