"Explore" layout - Couture Creations

Hello there everyone, sharing a page I created for Couture Creations.

Today I am sharing a layout using some of the new 
release Couture Creations products.

I created a layout, titled "Explore" using the latest paper collection called
Hearts Ease paper collection
with this paper pad collection comes in two sizes 12x12 and 6x6
there are stickers, stamp sets and Ephemera Pack of collectables.

The photo was taken recently while our holiday in Venice, 
on a bridge overlooking the Grand Canal. Such a beautiful place.

I used the new release dies collection
Couture Creations - KALINI Intricutz dies
with the Hearts Ease paper collection, Ephemera  & Stamps.

Here is my step-by-step how I created this layout.

I firstly distressed and inked the edges with a Rustic ink pad and sponge dauber
around the sheet of paper CO724182 from the Hearts Ease paper collection
Then I cut  Hearts Ease paper collection  C0724181 paper in half,
distressing the top of paper and inking the edges. Leaving the bottom row of Pansies
on the bottom of the page, I also inked the edges a little with Rustic Ink pad.
I then cut a strip of C0724185 Heart Ease paper about 6cm wide, 
distressed and inked the top edge 
and placed it slightly under the middle of page, as shown below.

I then mounted my 17cm x 10 cm photo on cream card stock, 
adhering it to the centre of page, as shown below.

The flowers dies I used for my layout
are from the Couture Creations - KALINI Intricutz dies

C0724251 KALINI Falling Blossoms die

To create the flowers with this die, I love
layers and I used C0723817 3D Glue spots
in between each petal flower (4 different sized flowers for each flower)

I cut about 12 of the  C0724256 KALINI Bird on a Maple Branch
with green Heart Ease paper C0724177,

I trimmed off the little bird at the top
and glue the leaves around the flowers and photo, 
as shown on my layout.

Apply Rustic and Berry ink to Imaginarium Designs chipboard flourish
and adhere to bottom on page also
adhere with 3D Glue spots the clock face from the 
Hearts Ease paper collection - Ephemera collectables.
Also, adhere a flourish arrow from the Ephemera collectables, 
as shown below.
Glue down a triple bow of twine or string, adhere under flowers, as shown.

Using the Hearts Ease paper collection Set of stamps,
There are 3 different set of stamps.
I used the C072400 Hearts Ease Borders and Butterflies stamps &
C072401 Hearts Ease Time goes on stamps

I stamped with the stamps and ink pad - the small butterfly scattered around my layout, I stamped also the words "Explore"& "dream" and also stamped a flourish on the top edge of papers, as shown below. The three hearts from the  Hearts Ease paper collection Ephemera collectables are glued down with 3D glue spots.

Adding touches of Couture Creations Vintage Gold Gemstones around
my page and flowers.

Cut a C0724256 KALINI "life is beautiful" title die cut and cream card stock 

adhere with glue and place on top right hand side of photo.

Hope you like my project for today
"Explore, Life is beautiful"  :)
