Travel themed configuration box-CE daily

Hi fellow crafters.. 
I'm here today to share a configuration box that I decorated using some of the fabulous chipboard elements from the Creative Embellishments store..  I wanted to create something to remember the trip we took this summer to Iowa and Florida from Finland.. We had our grand baby Melissa along with her mom (our daughter) and dad..
Here is what I created:
I used a 6x6 configuration box, took some of the boxes out and attached them to outside of the main box.. I did add the pattern paper before putting it all together.. I ran washi tape over the edges to make them clean..

How about some close ups  and some details of the items I used:

 I definitely had to have a plane on the top of my box and then globe with a heart located about where Finland is (in another close up photo)..LOL  used some of the small veneer Polaroid frames for my photos, film strip and the title sentiment Journey.. The large  box needed a little something, so I used the small scalloped square frame, adding some tags to the front of it..

 I made some tiny suitcases, piled them up high.. I also used some the stars I had left over from another project I had done previously.. found some cute charms in my stash, like the dice with the letters on it, T for travel..

These are so much fun to create.. I added some paper scrolls ( to look like old map scrolls), the pocket watch chipboard element for time to travel, cause you are constantly checking the time for boarding while at the airport..LOL Here you can see the globe with the heart attached to it.. Those tiny hearts are also left over pieces from another previous project..

I added lots of fun little things to my box to represent what we did or where we traveled.  I used a few of the trick or treat bags, covering them with printed papers,  to represent all of the shopping we did while we were in the States..
and there you have my very first configuration box, but it certainly wont be my last..
Thank you for stopping by today and checking out my off the page project for today's reveal..
Till next time.

Autumn baby

Hi fellow scrappers..
I'm here to share another Autumn themed layout with you that I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments.  I absolutely love these pumpkin corner chippies and I knew I had to add them to a layout.  We here in Finland do not celebrate Halloween like we did when we lived in the States, so I decided to use them as an Autumn element instead of a Halloween element..
Here is what I created:
My daughter sent me these photos of my grand daughter wearing her Autumn coat and new boots.. I fell in love with these photos and I knew they would have to be scrapped :)

Here are some close ups and details of the layout:

I used the new Flourish Stencil 2 and light texture paste to create texture to my background, adding some color with water colors.

 used the cute little chipboard leaves from the Autumn Leaves set.
I decided to keep the raw chipboard and did  not add any color to them.

For my pumpkins, I colored those using Watercolors by Prima.. They were so much fun to play with..

and finally a close up of the big pumpkin and leaves.. Absolutely love these pumpkins.
and there you have my design team project reveal for today..
thank you for stopping by and checking out what I've created..
Till next time
 p.s. Here are the chipboard elements, stamps and stencil I used to create my layout:

Summer mini album-CE daily

Hi fellow crafters..
I'm here to share a cute little summer themed mini album I created as my design team project for Creative embellishments, using the new Mason jar chippies and long with some fun words from the Social Hashtag word set..
Here is what I created:
My cute little mini album measures 4"x 6" and it has lots of flip pages inside to hold lots of photos ..
I created my base using cardboard I had saved from a cereal box and covered that with papers to match the them I was going for.
For this album, I wanted to add photos from our vegetable garden that we had this summer, because it was a big success compared to the last few summers :)
I added lots of pull out photo mats to the pocket pages of my album.
 There are pockets to hold tags, which i created using some of the paper cut outs from the collection I used, which is by Bo Bunny.
for the last page I added the basket of apples chipboard element, its one of my favorites.
and that is my summer mini album that I created.. I do not have photos for this yet, those need to be developed yet :)
thank you for stopping by and checking out my project for today's design team reveal..
Till next time
P.s. here are the chipboard elements I used for my album:

Autumn layout-CE daily

Hi everyone.. 
 I'm here today to share an Autumn theme layout that I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments, using those lovely autumn leaves chippies and this was inspired by the trees that are in my front yard that turn a million shades of autumn every year..LOL 

 Here is the layout I created:
For the papers, I used some older papers that were in my stash.. For the background, I added some stamping and then a little bit of texture paste using the Distress Grid stencil.
I used the three of scalloped square frames, just to frame all of the layers on my layout and the pine cones from the Berry Wreath set were perfect for that little detail I was wanting for my layout.

 I colored all of my chipboard elements using different colors of Distress Oxide ink pads and the dry brushing them with white paint.

I added lots of layers on this layout using corrugated cardboard, that I've hidden underneath all of the printed papers..
and there you have my Autumn themed layout..

Thank you for stopping by and checking out my design team project for today's reveal.

Beautiful Dreamer-CE daily

Hi everyone..
I'm here to share a layout I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments, using those beautiful butterflies, fancy corners and the square lattice panel chippies from the Creative embellishments store..  These panels are awesome, they go such a long way. I've actually created two projects using the same chipboard piece..

Here is what I created:
This layout was once again created using a small 6x6 paper stack.. One of my favorites from K&Co.  I took 5 papers and cut them into different size pieces, then layered them behind my photo.  I fussy cut one of the papers that had the large flowers on it and was able to create my flower clusters.  Adding a few drops of glossy accents to look like water drops.

I absolutely love this flair set with the dream catchers on them.. I wanted to design my layout around the flairs and because of the photo, I was able to add my flair :)

You can also see how I decorated my butterflies and my corner pieces, by adding Baby Blue and Star dust Stickles on them, adding a few drops of white liquid pearls to the body of the butterflies and on the corner pieces.  I decided to leave my title raw chipboard, loved the outlook.

My background was created onto white cardstock.  I started by rubbing Broken China Distress Oxide ink to the cardstock.  I then added some circles using the Distressed Circle Stencil, then adding some stamping using the Distressed Script Stamp.

Thank you for stopping by today and checking out my design team project..
