Couture Creations | C’est la Vie Scrapbook Layout featuring Nouveau Dies and Hot Foiling

Welcome to my post today which is a layout and process video I created with the Couture Creations C’est la Vie collection and some Hot Foiling.  I have used a full sheet of paper for the background and lots of scraps to make up the rest of the layout.  

I used the Nouveau collection Bodice Cut, Foil and Emboss die with pink Hot Foil and a Metal Trinket to finish the left-hand embellishment cluster.

I have also Hot Foiled the chipboard title and flowers with the same pink foil and the Go, Press & Foil Machine. 

Really this layout is very simple to re-create as it uses minimal paper and embellishments, allowing the photograph and Hot Foiling to be the superstars.

Below are linked images of the products I have used….

Couture Creations | Seaside & Me Card with Hot Foiling

Hi Everyone, and welcome to my post today which is a card I have created with the soon to be released Couture Creations Seaside & Me collection.  I have used a 6×6 paper pad and Kraft A6 Cards & Envelope to create my card, along with the beautiful Silver Hot Foil that comes as a bonus when you purchase a Go, Press & Foil Machine.  

I have kept my card design clean and simple to make the Silver Hot Foiling the hero.

I started by Hot Foiling the Angel Fish Hot Foil Stamp with the Silver Hot Foil onto the bottom left-hand corner of the envelope I intended to use.  You will need to use a single piece of cardstock as a shim when Hot Foiling Envelopes as they are very thin.  You will also need to make sure that as soon as you remove the envelope from the Go, Press & Foil Machine to open the envelope, or it could seal shut. 

It is also essential to make sure that your envelope cools fully before removing the Hot Foil sheet.

I think that the resulting embellished envelope speaks for itself, however I am a super fan of Hot Foiling with the Go, Press & Foil Machine.

My next experimental technique with the Go, Press & Foil Machine that I love using to create that extra Pop of Foil on my projects is diecutting a shape from cardstock or patterned paper (as in this case) and then Hot Foiling it with some texture.  For this card I have used the Seaside & Me Branching Coral cutting die and the Swirling Seas Hot Foil Stamp with the Silver Hot Foil that comes with the Go, Press & Foil Machine.

I find that Die-cutting prior to Hot Foiling gives a cleaner and less damaged finished embellishment.  As I have used patterned paper to cut the Branching Coral I have once again used a single piece of cardstock as a shim – adding the bonus of a slight emboss to the finished design.

I have also used the Go, Press & Foil Machine to apply the Silver Hot Foil to the chipboard banner words (which I then distressed) and another Angel Fish on patterned paper (which I also fussy-cut and matted before raising on foam tape).  I have also used some of another A6 Kraft Card that I had previously cut apart with the Scaley Embossing Folder on the front of my card.

Below I am going to share some linked images of the products I have used….

Couture Creations | Seaside & Me Treasures Scrapbook Layout with Bonus Sketch

Hi Everyone, and welcome to my post today which is a layout I have created with the new release Couture Creations Seaside & Me collection.  I have used a 6×6 paper pad to create my layout, along with three shades of cardstock and some Hot Foiled Chipboard from the Seaside & Me collection.   

To unify the layers and elements on my layout I have distressed and inked all of the edges.  After layering my background pieces I have mixed the Pigment Powder with Acrylic Gesso and some water and flicked it over the background with a fan brush.

I used a sander to slightly scuff the Hot Foiled Chipboard pieces before adding some ink with a sponge dauber – helping these elements to unify with the other distress page elements. 

The Seaside & Me paper pad includes some fun elements and images that are perfect for fussy-cutting and adding to projects with foam tape.

As a Bonus today I have created a sketch of my layout, and would love to see what you create with it too…..

Well I guess that is it for me today, except to share some linked images of the products I have used….

Couture Creations | Foamiran Flower Card with Bonus Video

Hi Everyone, and welcome to my post today which is a card that has a Foamiran Flower on it, and as a bonus I have created a video showing how I have created this flower.  My video is a warts-and-all affair where I show how I use imperfect and torn flower layers.   

I have used two cream cardbases in the creation of my card – one for the base and the other has been used for the embossed layers and the Hot Foiled Sentiment.  I have also incorporated a Cut, Foil & Emboss Feather from the new Nouveau collection in my card.

The Hot Foil colour I have used is the new Pale Gold Mirror finish from the new release Hot Foil colours range.  And yes I have fussy-cut around the Hot Foiled ‘Celebrate’ Sentiment and then raised it from the surface of my card using tiny pieces of Foam Tape. 

I share in my video how I alter brads to use as Flower centres that co-ordinate with my projects – so I never have the wrong colour flower centres because I make them co-ordinate with this technique.

I also share in my video that there is no shame in using some strategically placed glue to dictate how a flower sits on a project.

So without further discussion here is my Foamiran Flower Tutorial video, which you can also find on YouTube——>here.

Well I guess that is it for me today, except to share some linked images of the products I have used….
