It's me Frenchie with a little french accent living in the United States, that loves to create and share paper crafting. Hope I inspired you to create your own creation with paper. Thank you for stopping by. Come again soon!


  1. Frenchie - love the video! Sorry but I have to admit I was laughing so hard when you were having trouble with that tape on the burlap. A sure fire way to get that red backing off the tape is to use an Exacto knife. Just slip the tip under the corner and it usually pops right up! Thanks for all your inspiration and videos!

  2. At this Thanksgiving time, I wanted to let you know that I am thankful for YOU. I appreciate all of the time that you take to share cards, and especially videos, with all of us. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

  3. Loved the video and you had me laughing, but like Debbie said, just use the tip of your exacto knife or a the tip of small pair of embroidery scissors. Happy Thanksgiving France.

  4. I love this technique, never thought of using old magazines or catalogs for something like this. Very nice, indeed! Honestly doesn't taking that red film off get you nuts?!?!

  5. You really had me laughing. You sure held your cool. That red tape drives me crazy but everyone is right. Just use something sharp and it comes right off. I did learn something new. I also have old catalogs, so now I know what to do with them. Happy Thanksgiving to your family.
