My Favourite by Anita Enright

#artdecocreations   #couturecreationsaus    #ultimatecrafts  

Welcome back to the blog today everyone. Anita here with you again with another creation using the gorgeous RAMBLING ROSE collection which has just been released.

Before I go any further if you like any of this collection do not hesitate getting in to your craft store and grab what you like because everything is running out the door already!!

For today's creation I have used so many of the beautiful butterflies that cover the patterned papers in the collection.

To start I have taken a piece of the Ultimate Craft cardstock in Snow White.  From the 12x12" paper pad I have used the wood panel paper.  There are two options in the papers, one with just the wood panels and one that has a lovely floral border along the bottom.  Because I wanted the focus to be the butterflies I have stuck to the simpler plain wood panels.

From the wood panel paper I trimmed a piece approximately 5" vertical and adhered it to the left side of the white cardstock.
I chose a square photo and mounted it on a piece of the Obsidian cardstock. I added a heart doily from the Ooh La La range to the back of the photo mat.
From the ephemera pack I chose one of the thin borders and after working out where I wanted to position my photo cut the thin border in two so that it edged the wood panel paper and finished right to the edges of the top and bottom of the page.

Next I fussy cut heaps of butterflies from the patterned papers.  Using some of the pigment powders in the coral pink and purple and a water pen I changed the colours of the inside of the butterflies.

I added some of the 2.5cm and 3cm Tie Dyed and Jewelled flowers to both the top and bottom left side of the photo and then I scattered the butterflies up the seam of the patterned paper, some of foam tape and some just glued down. I kept a couple of the butterflies aside to just add to other spots on the page once I had completed it.

I inked up a title and adhered it to the bottom right edge of the page.  Finally I added some pearls to the butterflies.


Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoyed my quick and easy layout today. Stop by again tomorrow for some more inspiration by our wonderful Design Team.

Adventure by Adriana Bolzon

#artdecocreations   #couturecreationsaus    #ultimatecrafts  

Hi there everyone, Adriana here today with a double layout using the
This new collection was launched at Creative Inspiration Live 2017, a couple of weeks ago, and was a huge hit with the attendees and retailers.

The Ultimate Crafts "Rambling Rose" 
has been released to the stores just a few days ago 
and it is proving to be very popular collection.

This paper collection was designed by the talented Australian 
designer "Sue Smyth" 

The paper pads, dies and all the beautiful embellishments that go with the range are all available now from your local scrapbooking store. 

So today, I created a double layout using this new release collection.

"Adventure" layout with "Rambling Rose".

My adventure and travels of Venice continues…. I do love this place, this place is very close to my heart.

A closer look of the left-hand side of double layout

and the Right-hand side of double layout

Using the paper from the ULT157701 Ultimate Crafts Rambling Rose 12x12 paper pad , there are two of these pages in the paper pad and I used both of them. I cut the paper in half as shown below.

I then placed each of the bottom section together of the two pages, as shown below, back to back.
It is not quite a mirror image but the effect makes it look like it. :)

I then cut the paper straight down, a little slightly off centre, as shown below.

I then placed both of the sides on the edges of White Card-stock, as below.

Using the ULT157740 Ultimate Crafts Rambling Rose Script stamp set and a light grey stamping ink pad, I stamped the page randomly around the centre and edges of my double page layout. Using the ULT1577742 Ultimate Crafts Rambling Rose Happiness stamp Set, I stamped with Lavender and Light Grey ink pads the two or flowers or weeds from the same stamp set around the edges of both pages.

I then cut sections of the Wooden Panel Paper from the ULT157701 Ultimate Crafts Rambling Rose paper pad, into small and long sections and randomly glued them onto the page as shown. Using a some black watercolour pencil,water brush and water to enhance the edges - to create some shadows around the panels.

Using the C0725047 Couture Creations Enchanted Tea Party Decorative Die Bouquet to create some light and dark green foliage for the C0724293 Couture Creations Bulk Tie Dyed Jewelled Florettes which I sprayed some lavender spray on the flowers.

I matted my three photographs with black card stock and arranged them on both pages, as shown. Adding a ULT157731 Ultimate Crafts Rambling Rose Decorative Die Rambling Flourish at the end of each cluster of flowers and foliage.

I have been inspired by the South African scrapbooking ladies and in particular the talented Cariena Basson, who always do double layouts in their classes and just in general, all the time. I thought I would give it a try with this wonderful collection - isn't it great that we all inspire each other to try different things and always trying to push our boundaries.
 Thanks to Cariena  for your inspiration with double layouts.

Say Cheese by Kerrie Gurney

#artdecocreations   #couturecreationsaus    #ultimatecrafts  

Hi Everyone Kerrie here with a super quick layout I created for Artdeco Creations Blog using the newly released Ultimate Crafts Rambling Rose Collection
Rambling Rose is a gorgeous floral collection designed by Sue Smyth but Sue has very cleverly added some fabulous patterns on the B side of the papers that can be used for creating male layouts like the one I have created using photos from my favourite son's Contiki Tour of Europe. 
(I only have one son so I always tell him he is my favourite son :))

I am not sure why but all my step by step photos were out of focus, so sorry no step by step photos but it is a simple layout with very simple techniques.
Also I added the black line as an after thought and I wish I hadn't I liked the layout much better without but hey I'm not pulling it apart and starting again :)

For my texture I used my Ultimate Crafts L'Aquarelle Rolling Mesh Stencil and Couture Creations Anna Griffin Embossing Paste. While still wet I sprinkled on some Couture Creations Mirror Gold Embossing Powder and heat set with my Couture Creations Heat Tool.
I didn't want full coverage so just sprinkle lightly, you can add more embossing powder if you like as you heat it, remember you can always add more you cannot take away.

 here is a closer look at the touch  texture coming out from under the patterned paper. I have added some fine jute string under the photos to add some more texture
I cut one of the Rambling Rose Wood Veneer Frames into two and added some brown ink and then sprayed them using Couture Creations Anna Griffin Gold Pigment Spray

For my title I again heat embossed using Couture Creations Mirror Gold Embossing Powder, this time sprinkling in some Couture Creations Copper Embossing Powder to give a variegated colour on the the title

I added some splats of Gold using Couture Creations Anna Griffin Gold Pigment which I previously  made into a spray. I have a spray for each colour of the pigments made up ready to use when I want them.

Once again I am sorry for the lack of step by step photos, I'm not sure why my camera decided not to work.

Frame It by Tracey Cooley

#artdecocreations   #couturecreationsaus    #ultimatecrafts  

Hi Everyone 

First of all I just want to thank everyone who joined us at Creative Inspiration Live and a special thanks to all those who participated in my little challenges. I do hope it woke you all up enough to get you through the last part of the afternoon.
Last time I checked our Mannequin challenge video had been viewed just under 2000 times. 

Now onto my blog post, which I must inform you all that whilst making this card my power went out so finished it by torch light. (note to self: do not scrap using the torch on your phone as your battery will run low and you will not have an alarm for the next morning!!!)
So I do apologies for bad lighting on my pictures. 

It is just gorgeous and so very easy to work with.
I started with one of the papers from the Rambling Rose paper pad and cut a card mat from it to suit a 5x7 card base.

On the reverse side of the pattern paper was some gorgeous frames so I cut one out then cut the middle from it (don't do this in torch light its definitely not good) and attached the middle to my card front and the lifted the frame around it using Couture Creations Foam Mounting Tape.

Then using the amazing embellishments for the Rambling Rose collection including the Cabochons, resin flowers, pin wheels , pearls and the ephemera pack I created this pretty little cluster at the left hand bottom of the frame. (OMG!! the embellishments are gorgeous!) 

this cute little butterfly was also on my pattern paper so I cut him out and gave him a fresh coat of Couture Creations Irridescent Glitter and popped him on my frame. 
I mounted all this on a mat and cardstock made from matching Ultimate Craft Cardstock.

This card is super quick and easy for all those time when you get caught without one already made!

Thanks so much for stopping by...
