Remember This Moment layout

Hi eveyone.  My turn again on the Couture Blog today :). I am seriously loving working with these awesome products!

I am slowly going through my mum and dads wedding album and scrapping all their photos and hoping to have it done in time for their 50th wedding anniversary in a year or two.  What a huge job!

I have used lots of Couture goodies on this page.  I started by embossing some patterned paper using the Large Damask Flourish embossing folder  and then sanding over the top.

Then using my Victorian Square Nesting Dies I cut out a couple of "tabs".

 To make my photo mat, I used Scallop Rectangle Nesting Dies.  I cut two and placed them on top of each other.

My flowers were made using the Roses Nesting Dies.  I cut out a few. 

Scrunch them up.  You don't need to be too careful.  It all adds to the look.

Then layer them on top of each other and finish with some gem stones

I love this embossing folder for leaves!  I have used Turkish Delight embossing folder with some core paper and sanded it pack to leave a white washed effect.  Cut around the leaves and tuck under your flowers.

Next, I went nuts with the hand stitching!  I LOVE to stitch on my papers and I love the look that you get with the hand stitching and doubling up your cotton.  So, using my Paper piercer from the 3 piece tool kit I stitched all around all of my papers.

Using the Kaleidoscope Heart die I cut out this heart using felt.  I ran it through my machine a couple of times just to make sure it cut right through.  No problems at all!  I like how it just gives my flower cluster some different texture.

Finished off with Lily G doily die and my favourite Tranquility die.  I also slipped in a strip off of the Pastorale embossing folder.

Thanks for letting me share :)

Until next time
