Happy Moments

Hello!  Jo here and it's my turn on the Couture Creations blog today inspire you with the Ooh La La collection.
 
Today I have a simple layout to share with you using mainly die cuts from the Ooh La La ephemera pack and some die cuts from the same range.
 
 
Another layout with lots of white space.  I am really liking the "fresh" look of the white pages lately.  it gives me the opportunity to load my page with pretties but still have a calm place for the eyes to rest.
 
Here is how I did my clustering.  You will see in the final shot that I replaced the banner with the Lace Nonet die cut.  The other die cut I have used is the Nested Labels set which has fast become a favourite.  I have also added a couple of the heart doilies too.
 

 
My small flowers were white but have been coloured by mixing some Anna Griffin Pigment Powders with a little water and painting onto my flowers.  Gives them a nice shimmery effect and these little white flowers are perfect for altering as they hold up really well to water and paints/mists.
 



Here is a closer look at some of the details.
 

 
Thanks for looking
 
Until next time

Tropical Punch with Kaisercraft

Hello and thanks for stopping by my little part of the cyber world.
 
Today I have a couple of older layouts to share with you.  I created these a little while ago and have forgotten to pop them on my blog
 
These layouts were created using the Tropical Punch paper collection from Kaisercraft.
 
Very bright and very different.
 

The pic is of my beautiful boys at our wedding a year or so ago and my thinking was it was ok to put flowers as they had flowers on too.  Just doing what I love to do I spose.
 
Here is a closer pic of some of the details
 



 
You will see in both these pics the little embellishment clusters that I generally make up and then store to add to my pages at a later date.
 
Thanks again for popping by
 
Until next time

Remember this moment

Thanks for popping by today.
 
I have been on a bit of a blue theme lately.  Here is another layout.
 
I love how this turned out.
 
 
For this layout I used some pretty napkins for the background.  I then added some texture paste over the top.
 
Here is a closer look

 
The frame is a spellbinders die that I cut using chipboard.  I then used my embossing powders to create a bit of a shabby look

 
The napkins look fantastic on paper - almost like it has been printed on.
 
They can become a bit of an addiction tho.  I find myself wandering the shops looking for the $2 cheap stores and all their pretty napkins!
 
Until next time
 
Hugs

Cherish Layout

Hello paper friends
 
Just a quick share today using a colour that I don't tend to use a lot of - blue
 
This layout is a little loaded up with embellishments and stuff .
 

I'm not too sure who made these papers.  Think it may be Maja designs.  I stamped on the bottom of that blue with some versamark and then embossed it with white embossing powder.  I then added lots of paper layers and also some 2Crafty chipboard in the shape of hearts.  That was also embossed with embossing power.
 
Here is a couple of close ups.
 


 
That little charm that is hanging is actually a cheap bit off an old necklace.  I did have plans for using it on a mini album but thought it looked good on my page.
 

 
Finished with lots of Prima flowers and that pretty butterfly die.
 
Thanks for popping by
 
Happy scrapping
 
Jo
