Rambling Rose

Hi and thanks for stopping by.
Jo here with a layout I have created using the super gorgeous new paper line - Rambling Rose by the very talented Sue Smythe

Here is how is how I created my page.
To start I used some embossing paste and one of  Anna Griffin stencils.  I then used some embossing powder and heat set it. 

Here is the finished result

I coloured my flowers using some of the purple pigment powders mixed with a little gesso
The Rambling Borders die is one of my favourites in the collection.  To make it a bit more of a feature I double embossed it with some embossing powders
I then assembled my layout and made my clusters.
 Here are a couple of close up shots of some of the details.

Thanks for popping by.  Until next time

Mini Album - Rambling Rose

Hello paper friends! 
 I'm back again today this time to share with you a mini album with the oh so super pretty Rambling Rose collection.
This little mini is crammed pack full of goodness.  I have used a few dies but the papers are so pretty I really wanted to make them the feature.
I have made a little video for you so you get to see all the interactive parts of the book and there are some close up pics too.

Enchanted Tea Party - Couture Creations

Hello lovelies!
  Jo here today to share with you a couple of super easy cards made with the lovely Enchanted Tea Party collection from the very talented Denise Boddey

These cards actually came about from some scrap papers that were left over from a layout that I created (stay tuned at a later date for that one)
Here is my first card

So I grabbed some supplies and a couple of the new dies from the collection.
The dies I used were the Enchanted Frame and also the Doily set from the collection.
I then fussy cut out some flowers and layered my card.  Added some stitching too for a little texture.
This next card I did the same but I also used some of the Enchanted Tea Party Ephemera set.  How sweet is that pretty little top hat!  LOVE IT!

Again I have layered up with a couple of the doily dies and I also used some of the heart shaped paper doilies from the Ooh La La collection.
Thanks for popping in today!
Until next time

Happy - Enchanted Tea Party

Hello and welcome!
Jo here again today to share with you a layout I have created for Couture Creations using the stunningly beautiful Enchanted Tea Party.

Soon as I seen these papers those pretty little flowers were screaming at me to fussy cut them out.
So I kept this layout really simple with layering some papers and lots of fussy cutting. 

I fussy cut that sweet little teapot for a pop of blue on the page and also added some of the super sweet doilies from the doily die set.
One of the clocks was also fussy cut from paper and the other was in the ephemera pack.
Another look at my clustering.
Thanks so much for stopping by

Remember this moment

Hello lovely people
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Today I have an older layout to share.  This one is one that I put together using up some of my stash and the papers came from The Reject Shop.
I love how this turned out!
I was a little brave and tried a little bit of mixed media.  Just a bit of stamping and stenciling.
Here is a closer look at the embellishment cluster on the right hand side.

Thanks so much for popping by.
Until next time

Happiness with L'aquarelle

I'm back again today with another layout from the gorgeous new L'aquarelle collection
Yep totally out of my comfort zone for this one - ORANGE!  A colour I would never use!  But again those beautiful flowers and birds were calling to be fussy cut
Firstly using the 6 x 6 lace doily stencil I created my back ground.  This time I used an orange ink pad and gently swiped over the stencil.
I then clustered my papers ready for my photo.  I also tucked in one of the diecut shapes too.

I then finished off with those pretty cut images from the paper 

For my title I decided to use one of the Inspiration Cards and I mounted that with 3D tape to one of the dies in the collection.  The die I used is Rolling Mesh Background Die.

Thanks for popping by and for all your lovely comments
Until next time

Together with L'Aquarelle

Hello paper friends and thank you for stopping by today!
I have a layout to share today featuring the new L'aquarelle collection just released at CHA
WOW  this collection is so pretty. 
As soon as I seen these beautiful flowers on the papers I knew I had to cut them out.
Here is a quick run down on how my layout came together
Using the Rolling Mesh 6 x 6 stencil I spread some of the Anna Griffin matt texture paste onto the page.

While the texture paste was still wet, I then sprinkled over some of the pretty purple glitter.

Once you shake of the excess this is what you are left with
I then started layering my papers.

Using the Flowering Frame embossing folder I made a photo mat for my photo and also gently swiped over it with a little green ink
I then started placing all the pretty flowers and also the gorgeous butterfly.  It is cut from the Watercolour Butterfly die.   I used some Couture Creations embossing powders on the die cuts to make the pop a little  This is a double die that also give you the background shape too.
Here's a couple of close ups for you

Thanks for letting me share!  Until next time
