BOY word album-CE daily

Hi fellow scrappers..
I'm here to share a BOY word album I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments,  using some photos of my boys when they were younger..
They are both young adults now, but is so much fun going through old photos..

Here is what I created:
This was a fun project.. The album was easy to cover with paper, just used some glue on a stick and stuck the paper down.. Aftwards I took a craft knife and trimmed the paper around the letters.. I also used my Zutter Bind it all for the rings. I knew this album was not going to be super thick and chunky, so using the bind it all was a good idea..

 when you flip the first page, I added a photo and some fun elements to decorate these pages.. I used the BIG from the basic Alphabet set, some stars from the New star pieces set and then the New Punchinella pieces..


I also created some word art using my Cricut and then added some elements using dies..


 and there is my weekend project.. it was a lot of fun adding little details here and there, mixing chipboard with paper elements.. I was able to keep it semi flat, so not too much bulk.. Thank you for stopping by today and checking out the project I had been working on.. Till next time. Hugs
Here are the chipboard elements I used for my project:

Dream a little Dream layout-CE daily

Hi everyone.. I'm here today to share my design team project with you all and I absolutely fell in love with what I created.. I had darling photo of my grand daughter and her grand father taking a nap together, which I took a few weekends ago.. She has been a little handful trying to put down for a nap and this was definitely an easy way to get her to nap..
Here is what I created:
The papers I used are by Prima, its their Heaven Sent collection..

Here are a few close ups of my layout:

I used Distress Oxide inks to color in my chipboard elements.
 For the title I used : Vintage photo, Worn lipstick and Candied Apple distress oxides.
I did some hand doodling on the edge of my layout and around the edges of the different pattern papers.. I used a black fine tip Zig marker.

 used the same colors of Oxide ink for the dream catcher, leaving the edge of it white.. The butterflies are a paper punch and I used coordinating papers for the butterflies.  The flowers and leaves are all by I am Roses.

and same for the feathered photo frame.. adding some white paint for accent here and there..
Thank you for stopping by today and checking out my design team project..
Till next time

Sweet layout -CE reveal

Hi fellow scrappers..
I'm here today to share a layout I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments and the layout is for grand daughters photo album, using lots of beautiful Creative Embellishments goodies..

Here's what I created:
This is one of my all time favorite photos I took of her while she was playing around, so sweet..

and that is where the title comes from, cause she just too sweet :)

for this layout, I decided to keep the chipboard elements white and add color using paper, flowers and inked the background.

I used one of the big frames and cut it into two, tucking it behind the photo on the left and then underneath the tags on the right, I really liked the swirls on it and think it added a nice look the background of the layout..  The large butterfly on the corner was added to make it look as if she was looking at it..

I also used some of the diamond panel, adding bits here and there..
For the background, I used the distressed Harlequin stamp and the distressed script stamp too add some detail, dry brushing it all with white gesso to soften the color a bit.
Finally adding my flowers, pearl on a string, gems, flat back pearls and a white ribbon bow to finish it all off..

and there you have my layout for todays reveal.. 
Thank you for stopping by today and checking out my project and you can find the list of supplies used below..
Till next time

Baby Girl House Vignette

Hi fellow scrappers.. 
I'm here to share a baby girl house vignette decor piece I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments.. I had a lot of fun with this one and just wanted to keep adding goodies to it.. Hopefully one day this will be on the shelf in my grand daughters room..

Here is what I created:
 This is the back of the house vignette, I added lots of goodies and hanging chipboard tags, which I added photos of my grand daughter to. and for the front of the house:
I used the distressed brick stencil and some texture paste to create the brick work.. Once dry, I rubbed the surface with some vintage photo distress ink.. I also added the gate pieces and ivy vines, flowers and finally string pearl..
I also added some of the faux brick to the sides and a panel which I painted white.
The chipboard tags are easy to take out of the house frame, I used a skewer to hang the tags on..

and there is my finished project for todays reveal.. These are really fun to create and I enjoyed making mine..

Precious Baby girl layout -CE daily

HI fellow scrappers.. 
I'm here to share a layout I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments, using the new Urn planter chipboard element.. I really enjoyed creating my flower cluster around it..

Here is what I created:
I covered the chipboard elements with rust embossing powder by Ranger.. distressed the edges with black distress ink.

I used flowers by 49 and Market, love the greenery in the packages and thought they were perfect with the planter..

I used the banners to create a sweet sentiment for my layout and adding pieces of the panel to add little touches of detail here and there.
and there you have my project for today..
Thank you for stopping by and checking out my project..
Till next time.
