Bloom where you are planted

Hi fellow scrappers.. It's Nanné here to share mixed media style layout with you that I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments, using one of the new stencils, some fun chipboard elements and then my hand made flowers..
Here is what I created:
Creating this layout was so much fun cause it was way out of my comfort zone, using bolder colors etc... Plus, its been a while since I created my own flowers, so that was nice..

I tore up and layered lots of papers, using the same color scheme, rolled the edges a bit to add dimension..  I also love the water pipe elements, those are one of my favorites, wish I had a water drop I could of added.  

I edited the title sentiment by cutting it into two pieces to sort of frame my photos... I colored my water pipes using an Archival Ink pad in Sepia, just rubbing it onto the chipboard pieces.. then added some antiqued bronze distress spray and finally some white paint, which I applied using a sponge..
I also added two of the scrolls to the outer sides of my layout, just to add a little detail element.. also used the ink pad to color those, adding some white paint..  Here you can see the new stencil and then added some random background stamping using the distressed circle stamp and the distressed grid stamp..  And finally adding some enamel dots for final bits of detail.. 
and there you have my layout for todays' reveal.. Thank you for stopping by and taking a look at my project.. till next time..
Hugs

Pool Party

Hey fellow scrappers.. 
It's Nanné here today to share a fun summer themed layout with you using the Pool party chipboard set..
Here is what I created:
The girls were celebrating Summer solstice at the in-laws summer cabin and it was a hot on this year.. They decided to take a cook dip in the kiddie pool together to cool off.. Such a fun photo ..

How about a few close ups:

I used distress oxides to color he chipboard, adding the pool to the bottom of the photo mat, with the ring and then flip flops.. adding the flowers to give the layout some color.

and I used both the of the round bubble frames, the smaller of the two I cut into two pieces and tucked them above the photos, adding some flowers for accent and then large frame I added to the photo of my grand daughter laughing..

and their you have my layout for todays reveal.. Thank you for stopping by and checking out my project.. Till next time
Hugs, Nanné

Safe travels

Hi fellow scrappers.. It's Nanné here sharing a travel themed layout with you all today using the new cloud chippies, the air balloon, postage stamp and one of the large globe chippies..  I also decided to keep all of the chipboard elements white this time, just cause I used so much color with the my papers..
Here is what I created:
The photos are from our trip back in 2018 visiting family and friends in Iowa and then drove to Florida and flew back to Finland from Miami.. it was a nice two weeks and our little grand daughter did really well..

How about a few close ups and some details:

I am absolutely in love with the postage stamp chippies, this is one was perfect because of the plane and I attached it to the open book chippy, too look like a passport that had been approved.. I also cut one of the large globe chippies, adding the bigger half behind the big photo and the smaller of the two on the other side..
The clouds are the best bits of little detail and I just added some here and there..  I also used the text stamp and the flourish stencil to create a fun background with various ink colors
and there you have my travel themed layout.. Thank you for stopping by today and checking out my project.. Till next time

Love layout-CE reveal

Hi fellow scrappers..
I'm here sharing a love themed layout that I created as my design team project for Creative embellishments.. I used one of my favorite photos of my grand daughter which was taken two summers ago.. I also used Graphic 45 papers, which went great with the chipboard elements I chose for my layout.

Here's my layout:
Once again I started with a plain piece of 12x12 cardstock, inked the edges using distress oxides.. added stamping , using the Distressed text stamp and then the new flourish stencil.. I used the Once Upon a Time paper collection by Graphic 45 for my prints and then lots of fun chipboard elements to add that little detail that we so love to look at ..
Some of my favorite chipboard elements are the background panels.. they are so versatile, fun to color and stretch to use on multiple projects.. I also added the arched door panels, a flourish which I cut into two pieces to make it stretch and then of course a few fairies since those go great with this paper collection..
I've been dying to use this heart border and finally had the opportunity to do so.. I cut it into three pieces, adding two the bottom of my layout and then a piece to top to bring everything together..
and there you have my baby girl themed layout for todays reveal.. I want to thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look, hope I have inspired you to get crafting and even join our monthly challenge this month..  Till next time.
Hugs

Sunshine and smiles

Hi fellow scrappers... 
I'm here with yet another fun grand daughter layout I want to share with you all today that I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments... I love late Spring and early summer with the flowers coming into bloom etc.. My grand daughter does as well and went dandelion picking with her mom a few days ago and I was lucky enough to get some photos of her having such a great time..
Here is the layout I created using a few of those photos:
I wanted to use yellow on my page cause of the title sentiment saying "Sunshine!" and of course cause dandelions are yellow till they decided to puff up and make a mess..LOL
She is always in such a good mood (unless tired or hungry)... LOL  I used the punchinella background panel and cut up into a few pieces, tucking them behind the photos and added a few to the top and bottom of my layout.. I absolutely HAD to add the dandelion to this layout with a few of the sprigs flying off.. love that chipboard piece..
and here is the title sentiment.. I painted it white to keep the layout clean, even though I added some ink splatter, background stamping and I also used the stencil and some textured paste to add fun background detail..
and there you have my Sunshine and smiles layout.. Thank you for stopping by today and checking out my project.. Till next time
Hugs, Nanné
