Special Memories by Lesa Bird


Hello and welcome August
Come with me today on a journey, to Couture Creations Secret Garden Collection, along the way we'll visit with a couple oldies but goodies, Everyday Essentials, Kalini, and Secret Treasures collections.
 So off we go

From the Kalini Collection, cut a full set of Gears 1 and Gears 2, from white cardstock, randomly bush on some gesso, allow it to dry, and them spritz with 2 or 3 different inks, this will help them look a little rustic

The Kalini Picket Fence, I cut 2 of these and raised them with small piece of foam tape, and placed it along the front of my photo, from the Secret Treasures collection, I cut a set of Bird Song die, placing them on the fence and around the gear cluster, topping the birds with Dimensional Magic

Using the 6x6 Hearts Ease paper pad, choose 3 sheets, cutting from each one,
a set of the Kalini, Falling Blossom's, Layer each set using the Turbo Glue Pen, once dry, spritz with water and bend or pinch each petal to get 3 different looking flowers from the same die, add a touch of bling to the centers using Seaspray Gemstones

Cut 3 of the Everyday Essentials, Classic Leaf, spritz with Water, and then press into the palm of your hand, this will give the leaf shape.

Use one Kalini Stained Glass Butterfly, and a set of Everyday Essentials Edith and Baby, here I've layered all 3 to create a super butterfly, using the seaspray gemstones on the body

From the Secret Garden Collection cut one of the Layered Butterfly, add Seaspray Gemstones to the body

Also from Secret Garden cut a few Butterfly Flourish, here I've used the butterfly as the dot on my i, the rest are just short cuts of the flourish which I've used with  my flower and gear clusters

Layer everything onto your page to suit you style, and have fun, but most of all enjoy creating

Hello by Anita Bownds


Hi Anita here ..
Today I'm sharing this super cute layout of my daughter Eve
standing in the water at Toogoom near the boat ramp

I started off by matting my photo on a bit of patterned paper from the 6x6 pad

As I'm a fan of using up my scraps of patterned paper 
I grabbed a few bits of leftovers and made a tag out of one of them

I also used some leftover strips and made some large pendants
And embossed them with the tied together embossing folder 

Then I start layering my patterned papers to how I like them

Next I cut a few things out 
2 of the perfectly petite doilies Victoria with patterned paper (these are being released later this year so this is a sneak peek at how perfect they are)
2 of the smaller tattered carnation with patterned paper 
1 using the biggest from the frames N frills Anastasia set

Then I added them to my layers adding the tattered carnation die cuts under my white flower

Next I die cut 
The flourish from the Mercato flourish set from the elegant card cuts
And the vintage branch from the vintage rose collection

I split the Mercato flourish in half

And added it under my flowers I ended up adding a second flower with the die cut 
tattered carnation 

I trimmed my cardstock down by taking off 1 inch from 2 sides and matting it on a bit of patterned 
Paper from the 12x12 paper pad
And tearing the corners off and tucking a die cut of a perfectly petite doily Victoria 
Under the torn corner

I repeated the same step in the other corner in the opposite side
Then added a bit of texture with some impasto and paint

I glued down my layers and added some glitzin glamour to my flowers

I put my title it in the hearts ease embroidery embossing folder 

And embossed it

Then I added the title and some pearls and I'm done
