Alpha layout - Couture Creations

Hello there everyone, Adriana back here again today, sharing with you all another project for Couture Creations - Ultimate Crafts. I have created a very simple layout with two papers from the Ultimate Crafts - Magnolia Lane papers and embellishments. These gorgeous and beautiful papers and embellishments are Designed by Sue Smyth.

Here is my very simple and effect layout using only 2 papers from the Magnolia Lane collection - Timeless Garden ULT157493 & Typography ULT157496

Alpha Layout by Adriana Bolzon



along with the gorgeous embellishments from the Magnolia Lane collection.

Adhesive Chipboard ULT157516
Metal Trinkets ULT157500
Rosettes ULT157504
Songbird stamp ULT157511
Diecut Ephemera ULT157515





Firstly I cut all the alphas and numbers from the reverse side of the Typography paper ULT157496, then all ink the edges with a black ink pad.
Cut the strip of lace from the paper and keep this section for later on, the Butterflies are from the Diecut Ephemera pack and I added a metal trinket on top of one of the paper rosettes.




Sort them all out to create a nest of letters and numbers for your photo, trying to create as least one word the lefthand side of the page, I used the word JESS. You can make a few words with these letters, as there are a few doubles letters.




Adhere your cut out letters with glue or double sided tape, secure the lace strip on the right hand side of page, as shown below.



Place the Adhesive chipboard Birdcage as shown, I really love these chipboard pieces as they are sticky chipboard.  Very easy to use and no glue - Hooray :) 

Stamp around the bottom and top of page with ink pad and a Script and Leaves from the stamp set "Songbird" ULT157511 & Timeless Garden ULT157510



Adhere butterflies with 3D foam dots



Arrange a cluster of paper Rosettes ULT157504 around the bottom right hand corner of photo.


I double matted the photo and then mounted the whole page on black card stock, just showing a very tiny bit of a black edge, around the layout.

Very easy and pretty layout :)





I hope that you are inspired with what I created here with these gorgeous papers and products.

Wide Open Spaces layout - Kaisercraft

Hi there everyone… thanks for stopping by here today. I have created another layout for Kaisercraft using the new collection of papers
"Old Mac". As  the name suggests, it is a very country themed paper collection.

Using the new Decorative die cut from Kaisercraft "Gumnuts" DD359,
 I created a cluster of them, colouring in the gum nuts with inks and pens, giving them a little depth.

Heartfelt Thank you Cards - Couture Creations - Ultimate Crafts



Hello there everyone, thanks for stopping by here. Today, I am so excited to share with you my latest projects using the New papers and embellishments "Magnolia Lane" from Couture Creations - Ultimate Crafts brand.
These papers are so lovely to work with and the embellishments are so fabulously designed to go with all the papers.

I created two cards to showcase one of the embossing folders called
"Petite & Tied Together" ULT157271
along with the Magnolia Lane papers and stamping set  Songbird ULT157511

"With Heartfelt thanks" Easel card





The top base is created with layers of black card stock and Magnolia Lane papers. I embossed the cream card stock with the "Petite & Tied Together" ULT157271 Embossing folder. After I slightly inked the raised surface of the card stock with vintage ink pad and sponge daubers.

Using a Diecut Ephemera framed image of lady from the 
Ephemera pack ULT157515 for the centre of my card.




With some cream card stock and Permanent black ink pad, I stamped several images of the flower and leaves from the Stampset "Songbird" LUT157511


Then I coloured all the flowers and leaves with watercolour pencils, cutting out the images and inking the edges with vintage ink pad.

with some of the flowers I cut the middle of the image and placed a 3D glue dot in the centre of the flowers. Adding some glittery sparkle with Crystallina  Glitter Glue C0721971

at the bottom of the card and top of card I added some beautiful Black Lace ULT157507 and I stamped the word sentiment from the stamp set and
added a butterfly die cuts from the Ephemera collection ULT157515



With a final touch of the gorgeous Oval Cabochons ULT157503
at the top right hand corner of the card.
also I added on top of the black lace some of the pearls from the Bling Flourishes with pearls embellishment ULT157499.



Next I created another card using the same "Petite & Tied Together" Embossing folder ULT157271 along with the Magnolia Lane papers and stamping set  Songbird ULT157511.




This time once I embossed some card stock with the embossing folder I cut a scalloped circle with a Couture Creations Scallop Circles Nesting Die  C0723041



Adhered it to the square mounted card, adding more of the same stamping  flowers which I coloured in with watercolour pencils. Adding this time some Pink Lace ULT157505 and Metal Trinkets ULT157500





So here is the links to both Ultimate Crafts magazine and also the Couture Creations catalogue HERE

Dream Canvas - Couture Creations Petite Doilies Dies

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by here today,
I am sure after seeing all the sneak peeks of all the many new dies and papers
that Couture Creations are releasing in 2016, it is going to be a wonderful year of creating and inspiration.

We have to wait for the new papers to be release, so for today, I have a special project that I have created using the 
Couture Creations Perfectly Petite Doilies Die

If you know me well enough, I have always daubed in paints and I do like to draw and craft.
After doing a short course online with the talented "Kelly-Rae Roberts"
I have created another one of her famous styled ladies portrait, adding
some of the Couture Creations Perfectly Petite Doilies Die
 for my textured background.


"DREAM"  canvas



The mini Doily used for the background is called "Lullabies"… how appropriate that I later called the canvas and stamped the words "DREAM"
After I created my lady I decorated her dress with stencilled the Lullabies Doily with some vintage ink pad. and then place of the mini doily die in the centre of her dress.





Cutting some of the dies in half and colouring them in with inks, I have glued these down to the background of the canvas. They look like Dreamcatchers a bit, don't you think? but without the feathers :)
I also added some Gemstones Vintage Gold in her hair.







I adhered three flowers on the top left hand corner, these flowers were white and I just sprayed them with a little spray mists.

Bulk White Flowers
Beaded Flower C07223019
Cottage Pollen Flower C0724295
Camden Beaded Cottage Flower c0724298

I hope you like my project for today using the wonderful dies from Couture Creations
