Layout - Couture Creations


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

  1. This is gorgeous.. and yes I know I am usually the one behind the camera too.. and I didn't know about the slit at the top of the folders.. so I learnt something today.. I have some of their folders and I shall have to remember that when next I emboss that I can do a longer piece of paper.. good for scrap layouts!
