Vintage Garden Papers Couture Creations

Hello paper people!  I have had the most fantastic time playing with these new Vintage Rose Garden papers.  They are just divine and teamed with some pretty dies just makes creating a breeze.

Here is my layout

I have stamped my background and then fussy cut from the papers as my main embellishing. By cutting some foliage from the Vintage Branch die (another new release) and placing under the fussy cut flowers my page didn't really need much else.  The tag at the top was cut from the new Sweet Accents nesting dies.  Sitting under the clock (which was cut using another new die Cuckoo Clock) I have used a die from the Christmas release.  This is the Christmas Border die.  I LOVE this die as its so versatile not just for Christmas!.  I kept my title simple by cutting from the papers again.

Here is a bit of a close up of some of the details.

Thanks for stopping by!

Mini Album - Vintage Rose Papers

Hello scrapping friends!  Its my turn again today on the Couture Creations blog. 

This month I have had the absolute pleasure of playing with the most gorgeous papers that have just been released - the Vintage Garden Rose papers.  OMGOSH!  I could ramble on forever about how beautiful these papers are.  Just divine!

Anyhow as soon as I seen them I knew I had to make a mini album with them.  This post is a little heavy on photos but I hope you enjoy.  I had a blast making this!

I have tried to keep the embellishing in this mini very simple because the papers are so pretty I didn't want to cover them up.

On the cover is the my favourite Beautiful Butterfly die with a quote from the paper line.

When the book is opened there is a pocket on the left hand side in the cover to house two tags.  On the other page it has a pull out tag for a nice size photo and it also pulls out to reveal another page that has a smaller flip out piece on it too.

I have used a simple flourish die and another of the quotes from the paper line.

To embellish this page I used the Mirror Mirror die and a blossom.  The leaves are from the Lucky Tree die.  The two words are also from the paper line

The opposite page has an on page pocket that reveals another little tag.  There are lots of little quotes that make embellishing this book or even cards and scrapbook pages easy!

This then flips out so lots more room for your photos.  The border along the bottom was cut from one of the Simplicity Borders die.

This next page is I didn't put any embellishing on except a quote.  I LOVE this paper and felt that it need to be shown off all on its own.  The page next to it has a pocket housing a photo mat and again I used the Simplicity Borders die.

The left hand page flips out for more photos.  The doily at the top is the Memories set trimmed with a blossom and the Lucky Tree die.

Another pull out tag on this page.  The fancy top was created using the Victorian Rectangle Nesting Dies.  I snuck in another little doily cut from the Cameo Set dies just peaking out from the quote.

And here is my last page.  I really liked the clock on this page so left it plain.
Through out my book I have had added some self adhesive pearls for a little glamour.  To stick my book together I have used 6mm double sided tape.  You can you glue but I find the this tape works really well.  I find glue sometimes too messy and guaranteed every time I do use it, I end up with it on my work or it seeps out the sides so for me the tape is best.  Its also a little forgiving if you don't press to hard the first time I always find I can reposition my work if I work gently with it first.

This paper really is such fun to work with!  Thanks for stopping by.

Until next time
