By the Sea-CE reveal

Hi fellow scrappers.. I'm here to share my layout with you today that I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments.  I have decided this year to put to use the items I have been holding onto and this paper collection by G45 is one of them.. This is my second project using this paper line and I have lots left, so more project to make :) Here is the layout I created for todays reveal:


So many amazing chipboard elements to choose from..LOL  I love, love, love the fish net panels and for this layout, I used the Fishnet panel 2, which is more distressed.. I used only half of it and this way, I can use the other half on another project.. Such a great way to get more for your buck..


I also added a few sea shells, tucking them behind my flowers and for I added mini art stones to my chain frame, which I had cut into two, to make it look like barnacles.  I also found some left over chain pieces in my stash and glued those down to the side of my layout and then the metal key that I've had in my stash forever..

I took one of the Nautical captains wheels, cut a piece off the bottom and tucked it above my flower cluster and added the title to the top of my photos. I left my title raw chipboard, just dry brushed the edges with white gesso..

Of course, I had to add a light house to my nautical themed layout cause it just wouldn't of been nautical without one.. LOL  added a few shells and then found a small TH glass vial in my stash, filled it with mini art stones and glued it to my layout.. I also used that little captains wheel piece and glued it to the bottom corner, this way I was able to utilize all of my pieces..
and there you have my layout for todays reveal.. I had so much fun playing with layers and papers that I normally would not of used.. Step out of your comfort zone now and then, play with items you would normally be afraid to play with cause the you just might like the end result..  

Thank you for stopping by today and checking out my project.. 
Till next time..

Hush Little Baby

Hi fellow scrappers.. I'm here to share a cute little baby themed scrapbook layout I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments of my grand daughter, took the photo as she was napping.. I've said it before and I'll say it again, but she is my favorite topic to scrap about these days..LOL

Here is the layout I created:
We are totally in love with her and she is so peaceful when sleeping :)
How about a few close ups:
I added the chain elements to look like they were hanging down from the corner flower cluster.. I painted most of the chippies using Tattered rose and Fired Brick Distress oxides.
Some of the elements I painted white using just your regular acrylic paint..

and I love adding little details using Nuvo drops.
I added lots of beautiful chipboard elements to my layout.. You can find the list at the bottom of my post..
thank you for stopping by and checking out my layout..
till next time

Precious-mini album

Hi fellow scrappers.. 
 I'm here to share a precious little mini album I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments, using the new 6 x 4.5" rectangle mini album set.  In my previous post last week, I showed how I used three of the pieces from the mini album set to create a tri-fold frame, well this is what I did with the remaining two pieces.
I used G45 papers to create my album and used a hinge binding method to add the pages to the album cover.  I used one of the pretty name plates from the Name plates set to decorate my cover. I also found a rub on word "precious" in the my stash and created my own flowers to match my papers.. I used Distress Oxides "fired Brick" to color the ornate part of the name plate and then just white paint for the middle part. covered the ornate pieces with Nuvo Crystal drops for shine (which is hard to see in the photo).
The album became so bulky that I was afraid I wouldn't be able to fit any photos in it..LOL
Here area  few photos of the inside of the album..
I still have to add photos and the journaling, which is always the hardest part..
The photos in this album are of my grand daughter during the first few days of her life back in 2017
I used the cut a-parts and stickers from paper collection to decorate my pages.. I could only use flat embellishments :)
I've added some pockets with pull out tags and photo mats which I will fill up with lots of photos and journaling.. I want this to be a beautiful keep sake for her for when she is older.. I want my thoughts in this album and how excited we were of her arrival..  I think its important for the grand parents to create keepsakes as well, for the child/children to know also their perspective on their arrival to this world.
and there you have a few peeks into my mini album, which by the way so much fun to create.. I love being able to add those little details that you wouldn't normally onto a large scrapbook page..
I hope I have inspired you to get a mini album of your started and if you are, you can find a list of items used at the bottom of my post..
Thank you for stopping by and checking out my project.. till next time

Tri fold frame-CE reveal

Hi everyone.. I'm here to share a Tri-fold photo frame I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments, using three pieces from the Rectangle mini album set.. These are so sturdy that they can stand up on their own when pieced together using cardstock, which I did with this frame.. I then took the remaining two pieces from the album set and created an album to go with my frame.  I will be sharing that in next post. I'm super excited to share that with you.  But for todays reveal:
Here is what I created:
I used some of my favorite Graphic45 papers to decorate my tri-fold frame, adding flowers and then using some of the wood veneer butterflies. 
I took one of the wood veneer butterflies, cut it into two pieces and tucked them both underneath my rose cluster.
for this butterfly, I added some pink Nuvo drops to the spine..
I used the Precious from the Girl word set, painted it white and then covered the front with clear Nuvo Crystal drops.. I created a nice shine to the top of it..  Adding a few drops of Pink Nuvo drops randomly on my project.
and that is my project today's reveal.. This was a lot of fun to create.. Thank you for stopping by today and checking out my project.. Till next time.

Mixed media Spring Tag-CE reveal

Hi fellow scrappers.   It's Nanné here to share a large mixed media tag I created.. Spring is in the air and I really wanted to create something spring themed, so a large tag was the perfect crafty project ..
Here is what I created:
I was trying to play with different colors than normal.. Kind of getting myself out of my comfort zone.. I'm scared of color..LOL
I had a lot of fun creating my tag, using lots of different mixed media elements and layering..
These dragonflies are the cutest.. painted mine white and then added drops of Nuvo Crystal drops..  Added the little nest with eggs, cause its spring :)
I also used one of the chain frames, but didn't realize I had basically covered it all with flowers.. lesson learned..
I also used up some of the chicken wire panel I had left over from a previous project.. Its definitely one of the best things, when you can save bits and pieces for a second or even a third project..
and that is my project for todays reveal.. Thank you for stopping by and checking out my project.. 

Till next time.
