Wonderful Beautiful | Couture Creations


Hi Everyone
It is my turn up on the Couture Creations Blog,
I created this layout for a class at a local store using some of the gorgeous Couture Creations products, I am really crushing on purple at the moment so Hearts Ease papers are really hitting the spot.


   Cut down Pansy Rainfall patterned paper to 28.5cm x 28.5cm

    Cut Pansy Rainfall patterned paper diagonally into 5 sections using the lines on the paper as a guide at every 10th line or approx. 8.5cm (one corner will be slightly larger)
    Distress the edges of all pieces of patterned paper and cardstock including the base piece.

       Place double sided tape on the back of all pieces of patterned paper just in from the edge

      Adhere all patterned paper pieces to base card and then using your fingers roll the edges up

      Place two strips of double sided tape along the very edge of the back of the 12.5cm x 30.5cm piece of Cream n Sugar piece of cardstock remove the backing paper and adhere the muslin and lace border. Make sure to ruffle the muslin slightly. Add another strip  of double sided tape onto of the muslin and lace border and adhere  the whole piece to middle of layout

     Flick lightly the Gold and Amethyst sprays onto the whole layout giving it a soft subtle speckle.
        Set aside to dry

   Die Cut  Daisy Nesting Dies using 3 different sizes from Cream n Sugar 1 of each and then die cut 6 x the smallest die
  Die Cut from Wisteria and Bordeaux cardstock 4 x Pointed Flower – Tip you can die cut two at a time if you use a metal adapter plate, so place a strip of each colour cardstock together on top of the die and cut together
   Layer all flowers together using Turbo Glue Pen

 Spray all lightly with Gold Spray and scrunch to give texture…don’t be gentle give them a really good scrunching  unfurl slightly and dry off using heat tool
Spray Jewelled Florettes lightly with gold spray
  Spray Chipboard title using Amethyst spray and also dry with heat tool
  Cut a  journaling tag using Wisteria cardstock 6.5cm x 12.5cm, distress edges
  Adhere you photo to your page using double sided tape to top and bottom only so your journaling tag can slide in

  Time to arrange your flowers onto you page and once you are happy with your arrangement adhere them using the Turbo Glue Pen and tuck in little pieces of left over muslin adding some softness to your floral arrangement.
   Adhere you title to your layout

   Finish off with Gemstones and Pearls

Products Used
