Winter Babe-CE

Hi fellow scrappers... I'm here sharing a winter themed baby layout with you all, that I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments.. I love looking at old photos on my daughters facebook feed and seeing how our grand daughter has grown and developed the last two years.  I decided I wanted to grab a few photos from her feed and create a winter themed layout using some of the snow flake chippies from the Creative Embellishments shop..
Here is what I created:

I want to apologize for the quality of the photo but living in Finland during this time of year, well its gloomy.. We only have about 6 hrs of daylight and even then, you can't really call it day light..LOL
I used some of my favorite papers by Simple Stories and added my chipboard elements to match the color scheme.. I used Distress Oxides again to color my chipboard, which I think is such an easy way to add color to them, plus I used the same oxides to create my background with, so another great way to get your colors to match..


I absolutely love these hanging snowflakes.. they are the sweetest element to add to any layout .. I wanted to stay within my color scheme so colored most of them light blue and then the one orangy brown to match my papers.. which is kind of hard to see the true colors in my photos..

I wanted to create some clusters of elements around my photos, so I used two of the harlequin chipboard elements, painting them to match and adding a few snow flakes here and there..  I also kept with the harlequin shapes, by using the distressed shapes stencils and some white paint around the edge of my layout.   For that final little touch of detail, I used the distressed script stamp and some blue Archival ink to stamp some text all over my layout..
and there you have my winter themed layout for todays Design Team reveal..  I want to thank you for stopping by and I hope I inspired you to get your snow flakes out and get crafting..  Till next time
Hugs

Sweet Memories

Hi fellow scrappers... 
I'm here today sharing a "sweet" themed layout with you all that I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments..

Here is what I created:

Because I feel almost obsessed with mason jars, I came up with the idea of filling these jars with a bunch of Xmas goodies.  I started by first applying white gesso the jars, let that dry and added the color using Distress Oxides.   The blue for the jar is  Tumbled Glass and for the lids, I used Vintage photo and Rusty Hinge Distress Oxides..


I also adhere some clear transparency film to the backs of the jar, so I could glue the candies to that, creating the illusion of filled jars..
The candy's and candy canes I printed on my printer and then colored with my Copic markers, they are attached to the jars using foam..


I wanted to add a little something to edges of my layout and the snowflake stencil was perfect.. Used some light texture paste in white and then doodled some white lines with my white gel pen, I also added some white Nuvo drops to the centers of the snowflakes and randomly around the background of my layout.  The title to my layout was created using a Silhouette Cameo.
The photos are of my daughter and little grand daughters first Christmas 2 yrs ago..
and there you have my sweet layout for todays reveal.. thank you for stopping by and I hope I gave you an idea of how to use these awesome jars from the Creative Embellishments online store..
Till next time

Rubber Ducky layout

Hi fellow scrappers.. 
I'm here sharing a cute little bath themed layout I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments, using the adorable duck shaker chippy and lots of cute bubbles, which can also be found in the Creative Embellishments shop..
Here is what I created:
Our little grand daughter loves her little rubber ducky's.. She doesn't wanna take a bath with out them ..
How about a few close ups:
I used Distress Oxydes to color my chipboard elements.. so easy and inexpensive way to color chippies.. I also added white Nuvo drops to my chippies..
I used lots of bubble chippies and attached them to my layout using foam tape, which gives them dimension..
for the title and wording, I created those using my Silhouette Cameo..
and there you have my layout for today's reveal.. Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out my project.. Till next time..

Halloween card set

Happy Halloween fellow crafters..
I'm here sharing two Halloween cards I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments using lots of CE goodies.

Here is what I created:
These were both so much fun to create.. 
They measure bigger than your normal card base, these are 6x8..

How about some close ups:
 
 This is definitely a spooky favorite of mine.. I stained the window using distress oxides, just adding layers of color and the lastly inked the edges with black soot distress ink.. attached it to my card using foam tape, I painted the spiders black and added a few drops of Nuvo White.  
 The faux wood panels are just an embossing folder that I used to emboss some cream colored cardstock, then using distress oxides and black distress ink, was able to create the look of old wood..  The candle and bones are a die cut from my stash..
  
 Totally in love with this whimsy Halloween card.. I love these plant urns and decided to create a fun Halloween scene with the witches' legs, and love love love this broom.. its so whimsy..

 
 I also use diestress oxides and distress ink to color my chipboard, so easy to create shadowing on the images.. I then attached all images to my card using foam tape.. Final touch of detail was adding yellow Nuvo drops..
and there you have my two Halloween cards for todays post.. Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out my projects for todays reveal.. Till next time..

Child at Play

Hi fellow scrappers.. I'm here sharing a playful layout I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments of my grand daughter.. I love her at this age (21 months) cause of her imagination, curiosity and playfulness..

Here is the layout I created:
 
 I've gotten so addicted to creating my own backgrounds and with some cute CE stencils (Distressed patterns and Stars) and stamps, plus an ink pad, it all super easy..

 
I really had fun creating my whimsical title.. Absolutely adore these puzzle pieces and the alphabet panel  giving my layout that perfect little touch of whimsy..

these large license plates are a fun element to a page. I inked it black and then glued some white cardstock to the back..
I also played around with the Basic alphabet letters, which helped me create the title to my page.
and that is my project for todays reveal..
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my project. Till next time
