Together | Couture Creations


Hi everyone it's Kerrie here

It is my turn on the Couture Creations Blog again
and I am just loving the new Vintage Rose Garden Patterned Papers, they are so soft and pretty.

Seeing today is my 50th ..yes 50th Birthday
 I thought I would scrapbook one of my childhood photos, this is a photo of my brother Shane and I taken in March 1968.
 I love this photo of us, we were just too cute.

To start die cut from cardstock 1 x Postale Square die using Quick release Die Paper 

see how the die lifts straight off when you use Quick Release Die Paper

Cut the die in half

adhere to the top and bottom of 4"x 6" photo using double sided tape 
you want the top is hanging over the top of photo

Die cut 2 x Vintage Borders from cardstock

Cut a strip of gingham patterned paper 5cm wide x 20cm long and emboss

pop the strip through the slot in the top of the embossing folder and emboss the full strip.
I love that this Christmas embossing folder is so versatile and can be used for any occasion

Die Cut 2 x Vintage Branch dies from patterned paper and 1 x Daffodil Spray Die from cardstock

Ink the edges using a sponge dauber so as to not overdo the inking 

Lightly sand the embossed paper strip

and then ink lightly around edges and on the embossed pattern

Distres the edges of all pieces and then start layering pieces onto the base pattern paper

add some pearls to flower centers on base patterned paper

Finish off with some Crystalina Glitzin' Glamour Glitter Glue to flowers on base patterned paper and premade flowers

here is a closer look at the details
