Capture the Moment | Couture Creations Ultimate Crafts

#kerriegurney #couturecreationsaus #ultimatecrafts

Hi Everyone Kerrie here with another tutorial for Couture Creations Ultimate Crafts blog using the gorgeous Ultimate Crafts Magnolia Lane collection.

My baby girl turned sweet 16 in December last year,  I absolutely love these photos of her in front of her photobooth backdrop I created from rosettes and tissue pom poms
(which I have to admit we still have hanging up as we love it so much, the upside it will be perfect for photos Easter morning)

onto my tutorial

On this layout I have torn the paper layers rather than using a trimmer. To get your paper to tear where you want it too just use a paintbrush with a bit of water and paint a line where you would like the paper to tear.

next up I fussy cut the floral border from Butterflies & Lace patterned paper ...yes I fussy cut it is so not my thing but as you can see I am not too fussy with my cutting :)

 I then die cut a Magnolia Heart from white cardstock to use as a stencil
(don't forget to use Quick Release Die Paper so the cardstock come out of the die easily

I then embossed a piece of  Damask Curtains using  Magnolia lace embossing folder

I then cut it in half 

next I used Cottonball Pearl Drops and the Magnolia Heart Die Cut to add a subtle and pearlescent texture to my base white cardstock, set aside to dry

when I finished I covered the whole heart with a thin layer of Pearl Drops 

and set it aside to dry off so now I have a beautiful pearlescent heart to use on another project.

Next up i mixed Madagascar and Cottonball Pearl drops together to get a lovely soft pink shade

and then painted the pearl drops onto the tips of my Magnolia paper flowers

now my paper magnolias have a lovely pearlescent tint to them 

I then layered all my pieces together. I have used the following Magnolia Lane papers
ULT157489 Floral Fancy, ULT157494 Damask Curtains & ULT157491 Butterflies and Lace
Use you fingernails to curl the edges of your layers for more texture and pinch the leaves on the fussy cut border.

I then added some paper flowers including the pearlescent tinted Magnolias, a sprinkling of sequins and pearls and some muslin for texture

 don't you love how deeply the embossing folder embosses

a closer look
