Today I have a layout to share with you all using lots of Couture goodness! I loved creating this page and am hoping to teach it soon.
To start I embossed one of the plainer pieces of patterned paper with the new embossing folder Large Only One. I have then sanded it back for that lovely white washed look.
I have then layered my pattered papers and stamped around them.
To embellish my page I have used lots of Couture Dies. I used the really pretty Cappuccino doily die to mat my photo one. Using the circle nesting dies I cut my photo to sit inside my doily.
The black fancy strip is a die from the Momento Ornamental Lace Dies collection called Chandeliers Set. This is a great set and comes with two border dies.
I have also used another new die just under the camera embellishment. Its called Photo Strip. this is from the new release The Van Roe collection.
Here is a little close up of my page. You can see a little more closely the pretty dies I have used.
I have also used the Party Banner die. This was an earlier release from the Secret Treasures Collection.
Here's a little tip too. To make your papers "pop" instead of matting on black cardstock, draw a fine line around them with a black sharpie. It gives the illusion of being matted without all the extra bulk.
Thanks again for letting me share!
Until next time
