Happiness Layout with "Seaside & Me"

Hello there everyone,  Adriana  here again with another project using the new SEASIDE & ME collection I have created a layout using some of the papers from the "Seaside & Me" 12x12 papers together with some of the dies and stamps from this wonderful collection. Full list of materials at the end of the blog post.



I created my page with papers from the  "Seaside & Me" 12x12 paper pad. 
Stamping the bottom half of my page with the 
"Seaside & Me" mini stamp Coral Mini stamp CO726155. Adding some watercolour pencils to the coral.
I also cut some dies of "Seaside & Me" Branching coral die CO726172 & a couple of the Coral Reef Background die CO726171 
which I placed underneath and around my photo and the clusters of flowers.

Oh!!!  by the way - those flowers are made with Couture Creations - White Foamiran Foam sheets CO726143 and flower die. They are so pretty and so easy to make. Adding a bit of colour in the centre of each petal foam before adhering them all together.

"Happiness" layout by Adriana Bolzon



Using the Couture Creations Go Press and foil machine together with some of the hot foil stamps. "Happiness" hot foil stamp CO725826. I foiled this sentiment on Clear Acetate sheet. I also used the "Seaside & Me" By the Seashore hot foil stamp CO726184 and foiled that on clear acetate as well - you can see it tucked under my photograph.






Using some Couture Creations Embossing Paste CO724870 
with the C'est La Vie Background stencil CO725772, 
I applied some white glitter flakes while the paste was still wet to give it a little sparkle.

Journey - Layout with Seaside & Me Collection

Hello there everyone,  Adriana  here today with a special blog post and also with another quick video using a couple of chipboards from the new release
SEASIDE & ME collection.
Today I will be highlighting these chipboards on a layout as well as using some of the dies and papers from this collection.

JOURNEY LAYOUT BY ADRIANA BOLZON









Foiling the chipboard is with conjunction of the
fabulous Go Press and Foil Machine and foils and the 
Go Press & Foil Metal shim plate CO725578

Please click on the link just below towards the end of this blog post  for the video and more close up photos of my layout - 

JOURNEY LAYOUT by Adriana Bolzon 
The photograph in my layout is of the beautiful harbour township of AKOROA in New Zealand - it is about 84 kms south east of Christchurch, in the South Island.  The town has British/French influence colonial buildings mostly built in the 19th Century. Some of the places and streets have French names. It was a very small township with so much history. The population is only around 700. This was our third port of call on our family cruise to New Zealand in January this year.  The harbour was so peaceful that day, the weather was cloudy and it did rain a little in the morning. Many boats were anchored in the harbour. The boat and jetty was near the small lighthouse on the left of the township. The tide was out for most of the morning - we saw starfish, many shells and seaweed all scattered on the rocky beach. 





Using the Rose Gold Vintage Foil CO725694 to foil the chipboards for my layout. I also used the 6x6 paper pad of papers from the wonderful collection.




I also created some flowers with the new 
Couture Creations- Foamiran White CO726143 adding some 
Couture Creations - Blue glitter powder and Crystallina Glitter Glue in the centre of each flower.



I am so loving this little crab die from the
Seaside & Me collection - CO726169 Decorative die 
together with the
Seaside & Me - Coral Reef Background Die CO726171
Seaside & Me - Branching Coral die CO726172
