Couture Creations | Bohemian Bouquet | Beautiful

Hi Everyone, and welcome to my first post as a Creative Team Member for the Art Deco Creations group of brands.  I am so excited to be a part of this talented team of creative ladies, and to be working with some of my all-time favourite products – and especially my number love in my studio right now…..my trusty Go Press & Foil Machine!

I have created a layout using a photograph of our lovely little darling Amelia-Ann at the Hairdressers with the Bohemian Bouquet Collection of papers, along with a mix of cutting dies and embellishments from several other go-to ranges released recently by Couture Creations and Ultimate Crafts.

I started my layout with a semi-neutral paper from the 12″x12″ Bohemian Bouquet Paper Pad, the Loving Flourishes Stencil from the LÁqarelle Designs Collection, Anna Griffin Gloss Texture Paste and Couture Creations Silver Glitter.

I like to gather all of the embellishments, tools and papers together before creating a layout.  I then set about die-cutting, foiling, fussy-cutting and creating the handmade embellishments for my design.  As I go I try to place each item roughly where it will go, however this is never set in stone.

I love to mat my photographs with colours to compliment them and to help them make sense with the paper range and embellishments I am using.  This particular pair of photographs I have treated as one by adhering them together prior to cropping.  I remove the centers from my photo-mats to save paper and reduce the final weight of my layouts – if it can’t be seen it probably isn’t there.

My next step is to add tape to the back of all of the layers of paper/card, before I put it all together and place it onto the background.  Notice that nothing is hidden behind something else – if it can’t be seen it probably isn’t there.

Now to add tape, foam and dots behind all of the embellishments – both purchased and handmade.  This just makes the final stick-down quicker, easier and smoother – allowing me to concentrate on my design.

The title was part of a Hot Foiled Life is Beautiful Sentiment that I have fussy-cut with a 1mm border once it was completely cool.

Below are some close-ups of the embellishments I have on my layout, including the flowers I created using the soon to be released C’est La Vie Collection Geraniums Layered Die Set.

Couture Creations 2017/18 Design Team Audition

Hi everyone and welcome to my Audition post for the Couture Creations 2017/18 Design Team.  And I am going to apologise up front for the length of this post, and I have actually culled it down to this size.

This first layout is created with this Audition in mind using papers and an embossing folder from the new Bohemian Bouquet collection and my trusty Go Press and Foil Machine.  I have layered the chipboard butterflies with blue, then scrunched green and finally iridescent pearl hot foils – a long process that is well worth the time.

I created this card with only cardstock and some of the Bohemian Bouquet cutting dies – and some bling and string.

I created this layout using some of my favourite cutting dies and layers of hot foils on wooden accents using my Go Press and Foil machine.  By layering transparent colours over other solid shades of hot foil I can create new and exciting colours and finishes.

This is a pair of layouts I have created using Couture Creations and Ultimate Crafts products. 

What I am going to share now is a few of my cardmaking classes that feature a mixture of papers, embossing powders, cutting dies, embossing folders and hot foiling from both Couture Creations and Ultimate Crafts.

And finally I have some of the layouts from my Scrapbooking classes using fabulous products from Couture Creations and Ultimate Crafts.

Thank you for visiting my blog and bearing with me as I share some of my favourite projects created with my favourite products.

Happy Creating and have a wonderful day

DT Reveal – Scrap Our Stash – October 2017 Tic Tac Toe Challenge

Welcome to my SOS Tic Tac Toe post for October and a fabulous challenge with a fall and Halloween theme.

I have used the left hand vertical row of Orange, Doily and Mini Alphas to Scrapbook the photographs of Amelia-Ann on the day she made a huge GLITTER mess at work. Yes I own and work at a Scrapbook Store, and yes I take my toddler to work each day – which is trouble free 99.9% of the time.

Well that is my take on the October Tic Tac Toe Challenge, and now it is over to you – which row will you choose and how will you create with it…..

Happy Creating and have a wonderful day
