Couture Creations | Crafters Home USA Feature

Hi Kerrie here I just wanted to share a project I created promoting Couture Creations Fresh & Fun Embossing Folders for Crafters Home USA Blog.  Visit their blog for the Tutorial on how to create this layout, it doesn't photograph that well, but there is a special background technique.

The photos are of my gorgeous niece Rebecca who has moved to Dubai and works as part of the cabin crew team for Emirates, so we get to travel the world through Bec :)

I will be creating one project a month showcasing different Couture Creations Products so make sure you follow their blog, Thank You to Haylie-Jo from CSW Distributors  for the opportunity.


I have a wedding anniversary party to go to shortly, so needed a card that was suitable to remind the happy couple of their big day 25 years ago... So using the Couture Creations Fine Designs Crazy Daisy Emboss Folder and some adhesive pearls I came up with this....

With a name like OH LA LA this embossing folder needed some Glitter!! Me, I Loooove Glitter so it was not hard to set about adding a bit off OH LA LA to this card.

 To start this card simply cut a 7 x 10" piece of cardstock and score it at 5" to form a base. Cut a white mat at 4.5" x 6.5" and emboss using the Couture Creations Fine Designs Oh La La Embossing Folder, and adhere to card base. Take a fine tip black felt pen and doodle around the edge of the card.

 Cut a piece of  Couture Creations Double Sided Tape and lay sticky side up on your work space. Then take a piece of tulle approx. 1" wide and pleat onto double sided tape. Finish with another piece of tape over the pleat, so that you can adhere to your card. Place the tulle on your card in desired position. Place some trim over the top of your pleated tulle using the existing tape to adhere. Do not worry if your trim does not cover the tape, I have a trick up my sleeve!

With a glue pen add some glue to the centre of the heart embossed images. Whilst still wet sprinkle with glitter and tap off excess. **here is the trick ready?

**when tapping off the excess glitter let it fall into your trim the tape that was left showing by your trim will now collect glitter and look like its meant to be there!!! Which it is.

Add a little double sided Jac paper to a piece of cardstock and cut a heart using the Couture Creations Nesting Dies Hearts. take the Jac paper front off and sprinkle with Glitter. Then arrange your new sparkly heart with some more embellishments and a flower or two to the left hand side of your tulle ruffle.

then using a fine tip black felt pen highlight the embossed images, branch and the bird on swing.

Happiness = Friends Layout

 This quick and easy layout is created using up some left over papers and of course some Couture Creations goodies.

I love this photo of us all the morning we left Kichaka Private Game Reserve, none of us wanted to leave, but there were still classes to be taught and sights to see in Cape Town.


try embossing your patterned paper, it gives dimension to your paper making it more interesting

Bird in a Cage Card

It had been so long since I had my watercolours out that I decided to take them for a bit of a drive and in the passenger seat was the Couture Creations Fine Designs Royal Embossing Folder. At the start I was a bit rusty but I think my little birdie turned out OK.

Turkish Delight Card | Fine Deisgns

Something a little bit different from my normal style I think.

To do this card simply cut your Core'dinations cardstock into a 5x7 card base then cut 3 mats to fit front of base. Emboss top mat with Couture Creations Fine Designs Turkish Delight Embossing folder. After embossing cut out the full leaves from the embossed image with Couture Creations Precision Craft Knife.

Take a glue dot and place over the center of the embossed flower image. With embroidery floss follow the lines of the embossed flower looping back onto the glue dot to secure. **you may have to add another dot as a second layer. finish with Couture Creations Adhesive Gemstones

Attach some Jac paper to the back of your embossed mat over the cut out leaves, so that the sticky side is facing upwards. Sprinkle with glitter, work around with finger and tap access off.
Attach all mats to card base and embellish with more Couture Creations Adhesive Gemstones.
Keep on Creating!

Steampunk Styling with Fine Designs Embossing Folders

It was my Husbands birthday last Saturday so I set to creating him a birthday card.... I love the manly feel of the Couture Creations Fine Designs Uber Embossing folder, and him being a carpenter I thought the Uber design held an architectural steampunk quality that suited him to a T. And in true Tracey form I created a set.


Happy Birthday Phil!!!
