Layout & Card for Couture Creations

Hi there everyone, today I am sharing 
a layout and card using 
the brand new release diecut collection called

Here is my layout….."Treasure the Time"
Using the papers from Couture Creations - Vintage Rose collection

The photograph is from our recent trip to Paris - hmm sigh!!!(yes, I still
keep dreaming about this place, so many memories)

1. I started with some Kraft card stock for the background and stamped and inked the edges then added some papers from the  Vintage Rose collection in the centre of the page,  I also inked the edges of the papers, now I will be focusing in particular the
small cluster of branch with leaves that I created and placed on the bottom left of
my page.


2. Cut several leaves with the "STRAWBERRY LEAF" C0724115 
and corrugated card board. I love how all the leaves have
the bubbled textures on them. Also cut 4 or 5 thin strips from the corrugated card.

3. With the Couture Creations 2 Way Glue Pen, glue
down and create a branch or twig like effect with the thin strips of card.
Then glue on leaves at each end. The Couture Creations Glue pen
are fabulous for small tiny area in which you need a bit of glue.

4. Dab some white gesso or white paint over the leaves and leave to dry.

Now you branch and leaves are ready to use for your project.

4. Adhered your photo with 2 layers of Vintage Rose collection papers and a bit of texture paste and stencil around the edges of the layout.
Also decorate some Imaginairum Designs chipboard, adding some Gltizing Glamour Glitter Glue - Gold  and Burgundy on top of these chipboards.

Also cut some  "AUTUMN LEAF"   C072411 die cut with
Vintage Rose collection paper  and inked the edges and
place them in the centre of my branch/leaf twigs, a bit of twine in the centre
and add your flower.

add the quote from theVintage Rose collection
 "Treasure the Time love the Moments"
