Three Quick Layouts - Couture Creations | Ultimate Crafts

#kerriegurney  #couturecreationsaus #ultimatecrafts

Hi Everyone,
Kerrie here sharing three quick layouts I created for Couture Creations Blog
I got caught up creating and forgot to take photos while creating so no step by steps but they are all techniques I have done before.

On this layout of my cute great nephew and niece at the beach, I have used the negative from the Little Things die from Couture Creations It's a Beautiful Life collection to create a tag

I also used Gold and Blue Perfect Pearls mixed together to create the watery look

On this layout of me when I was young I have used Ultimate Crafts Magnolia Lane Pattern Paper and Embossing Folder

I spread a thin layer of texture paste and then sprayed my embossing folder with water and stamped it into the texture paste
(make sure you clean your embossing folder off straight away so the texture paste doesn't dry on your folder)

On this layout of #1 daughter when she was 2, I have used scraps of Ultimate Crafts Magnolia Lane patterned paper, Magnolia Corners die and Chipboard butterflies and the little things die from Couture Creations  It's a Beautiful Life Collection

I have only used the top section of the Cottage Pollen flower which I  sprayed blue to match the background

Love Always Layout | Stuck?! Sketches April Challenge 2016


Hi Everyone,
My layout today is of my beautiful sister Megan, who passed away in Jan 2016  this photo was taken just after Megan was diagnosed with cancer. We had a girls weekend up the coast and I will forever treasure those memories of our wonderful weekend with our besties, I just wish I had taken more photos, sadly we thought we would have more time with Megan, but her cancer was so aggressive and took hold so quickly.
 I look at this photo and other from the weekend and all the memories from that weekend come flooding back to me and one thing that I remember the most is Megan kept smiling all weekend.
This is why taking photos and recording your memories is just so important.

I have been sick with pneumonia for the last few weeks and so with lots of time to browse the internet, rather than shopping online,
I thought I would get browse some challenge sites for inspiration.
I came across this sketch from Stuck?! Sketches and used it as my inspiration for my layout

here are a couple of steps on how my background was created

layer all the paper pieces and mark their placement

I  used the Ultimate Crafts Magnolia Lane Damask Frame die to create a mask for adding texture paste

while the texture paste was still wet I sprinkled on some Couture Creations ultra fine iridescent glitter

some close ups

Make sure you stop by Stuck?! Sketches Blog and see all the fabulous layouts others have created using their sketch

 Happy Creating 

Anzac Day 2016


Today we remember all the 
ANZACS who fought and died at Gallipoli in 1915, along with all our fallen service men and women

Lest we forget

 Happy Creating
