Cross Canada Hop - Language Stamps

Bonjour / Hola / Hello

Welcome to our March Blog Hop featuring CTMH stamp sets that are available in French, Spanish and English. When you flip through the catalogues those stamps are identified with a World globe. 

We have an amazing group of talented ladies all across Canada, and they sure would love to hear from you, so before hopping onto the next person, take a moment and leave a comment about what you loved.

If you've arrived from Donna of DAT'S MY STYLE then you are in the right place! If you would like to start at the beginning of the hop, and continue from East Coast to West Coast, you can start here “CREATIONS WITH MICHELLE

My family is a french speaking family. We speak French at home, at daycare, at school and I work in the French daycare so naturally I like to buy the French versions of our stamp sets. I was that lady who sent in a request every year for French stamps and starting with the new annual catalog we now have a handful per catalog. I love it!

 Here is a page I created that I am using for my title page of our new family album. In case you don't understand French "Aujourd'hui" means "Today" and "Tu rends mon coeur joyeux" means "You make my heart happy". I used two different stamp sets on this page. Hello Lovely Scrapbooking and Happy Heart.

I really like these two sets and they are extremely versatile for any layout or card.

I heat embossed the title as it is difficult to stamp ink over the vellum paper from the Rustic Home paper pack (backside). I used some leftover scraps and PML cards from the Hello Lovely paper pack to embellish. The flower bunch to the right of my youngest is cut out of a PML card. 

I also hand stitched a bit on my layout in the corners using our stitching guide ruler.

 Leave me a comment if you have any questions on my technique or if you like this page. :) Have a great day!

  1. Love this layout. It is simply fabulously stunning.

  2. WOW - ta page est superbe. et ta petite cocotte est tellement mignonne aussi.
    Great idea to translate what the words mean - I didn't think of that...

  3. Yay! A layout - and such a pretty one. Love how you mixed in the vellum with the Hello Lovely stickers.

  4. LOVE the page! Great job showing how that big sentiment can anchor the lay-out. Is that some hand-stitching I see on the corners, too? Tellement beau!

    1. It sure is! I love adding some hand stitching. Classes up the potty picture lol!

  5. Love that you shared a layout - and it's fabulous at that! Love the use of the vellum and I would have never thought of heat embossing on it. Thanks for the tip! - Charlene Weiss-Colgan
