Acetate Card with Rambling Rose

Hey there everyone and thanks for stopping by.
Jo here with a card to share with you using the Rambling Rose Card Makers Pack.

I have used some acetate for the front of my card and by adding the pretty Rambling Corners die cuts  it gives the card a pretty softness.
To make the card I cut a piece of acetate 5.5 inches x 6 inches and scored it at 5 inches.  I then sandwiched that folded piece of acetate between to pieces of 5 x 6 inch pieces of white card stock.

I used the ephemera from the card makers pack and some of the patterned paper.
To adhere my pretty die cuts (rambling rose corners) I used the Ultimate Crafts Die Cut n Bond Tape
This makes adhering these super intricate die cuts a breeze!!
I then finished off my card with some 3mm pearls and some white paint splatters.
Thanks for stopping by
Until next time

Dream with Laquarelle

Hello paper people and welcome back to the blog again.
 Jo here today to share with you a layout a created using the new L'Aquarelle range.

The inspiration for this layout came from the gorgeous inspiration cards in this collection
I love these little cards as sometimes I like to leave little quotes on my page that work not only as a title but also leave behind a little "something to think about" too.  I also wanted to create a layout for my boy.  Yep I know it has flowers and is not grungy or "boy" looking as such, but I'm not one for all this pink has to be for girls and blue has to be for boys kind of thing. I enjoyed the process and that's all that matters right?
So I fussy cut out some flowers and also made these burlap flowers too.
Yep the burlap flowers I die cut from an older die set called Clavelina Layers from memory.  The dies cut perfectly through the burlap.

To make my page a little more masculine I found a couple of pieces of chipboard floating around my stash and I then made them look all pretty using a mixture of both these embossing powders
You will also see that there is also a couple of doilies from the Ooh La La collection as well as some of the smaller ones that were cut from Enchanted Tea Party Die Doily Set.
I also added in some metal trinkets too just to tie in with the metal look of the embossing powder.
Here is a couple of close up shots.

And one from the other side.  Its a little hard to see but the two colours of the embossing powder together has given that chipboard fantastic depth.
Thanks so much for stopping by and for all your lovely comments you leave.  They really are very much appreciated.
Until next time

Rambling Rose

Hi and thanks for stopping by.
Jo here with a layout I have created using the super gorgeous new paper line - Rambling Rose by the very talented Sue Smythe

Here is how is how I created my page.
To start I used some embossing paste and one of  Anna Griffin stencils.  I then used some embossing powder and heat set it. 

Here is the finished result

I coloured my flowers using some of the purple pigment powders mixed with a little gesso
The Rambling Borders die is one of my favourites in the collection.  To make it a bit more of a feature I double embossed it with some embossing powders
I then assembled my layout and made my clusters.
 Here are a couple of close up shots of some of the details.

Thanks for popping by.  Until next time

Hello paper friends! 
 I'm back again today this time to share with you a mini album with the oh so super pretty Rambling Rose collection.
This little mini is crammed pack full of goodness.  I have used a few dies but the papers are so pretty I really wanted to make them the feature.
I have made a little video for you so you get to see all the interactive parts of the book and there are some close up pics too.

Enchanted Tea Party - Couture Creations

Hello lovelies!
  Jo here today to share with you a couple of super easy cards made with the lovely Enchanted Tea Party collection from the very talented Denise Boddey

These cards actually came about from some scrap papers that were left over from a layout that I created (stay tuned at a later date for that one)
Here is my first card

So I grabbed some supplies and a couple of the new dies from the collection.
The dies I used were the Enchanted Frame and also the Doily set from the collection.
I then fussy cut out some flowers and layered my card.  Added some stitching too for a little texture.
This next card I did the same but I also used some of the Enchanted Tea Party Ephemera set.  How sweet is that pretty little top hat!  LOVE IT!

Again I have layered up with a couple of the doily dies and I also used some of the heart shaped paper doilies from the Ooh La La collection.
Thanks for popping in today!
Until next time

Happy - Enchanted Tea Party

Hello and welcome!
Jo here again today to share with you a layout I have created for Couture Creations using the stunningly beautiful Enchanted Tea Party.

Soon as I seen these papers those pretty little flowers were screaming at me to fussy cut them out.
So I kept this layout really simple with layering some papers and lots of fussy cutting. 

I fussy cut that sweet little teapot for a pop of blue on the page and also added some of the super sweet doilies from the doily die set.
One of the clocks was also fussy cut from paper and the other was in the ephemera pack.
Another look at my clustering.
Thanks so much for stopping by
Until next time

Remember this moment

Hello lovely people
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Today I have an older layout to share.  This one is one that I put together using up some of my stash and the papers came from The Reject Shop.
I love how this turned out!
I was a little brave and tried a little bit of mixed media.  Just a bit of stamping and stenciling.
Here is a closer look at the embellishment cluster on the right hand side.

Thanks so much for popping by.
Until next time
