Im back today with another layout to share with you.
This is a very rare photo of my mum and I together. We always seem to be the ones behind the camera! So there is my first tip - try and get pics of yourself and don't be afraid to scrap them!
To create this page I started by stamping and flicking some mist over some white cardstock
Cut your patterned paper to size and mat onto some black cardstock and adhere to your page.
I then used the Bouquet embossing folder from the Serenity collection. What I LOVE about Couture embossing folders is that they have a little slit at the top of the folder so your can feed a long piece of paper through and continue embossing without cutting your paper. How cool is that? Couture Creations are the only ones to have this unique design.
So I ran a piece of co-ordinations cardstock through the cuttlebug and then gently sanded it back with a sanding block.
Once you have stuck this onto your page you can now start and place your embellishments.
To embellish this page I have used a few blossoms from my stash. I also used the Lily G doily die from the Royal Jewels collection. I cut two out of just plain Reflex copy paper and placed them under my photo.
To make the little hearts I used the hearts nesting dies and cut them out of light weight chipboard. I then painted them with some Tim Holtz distress crackle paint.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Until next time
