Traditions - Creative Embellishments

Hi everyone! Today I have a fun layout to share…my daughters family tradition is to search out their tree for the Holiday season. I used 7 Dots Writers Block collection for this layout, and I am entering it into the 7 Dot Tradition challenge.
The title chippy is from the Heritage Word Set. The snowflakes and title are all first covered in gesso than I added some glittery embossing to them.

The gorgeous stamp is also from Creative Embellishments. The Grunge Snowflake stamp was perfect for this wintery layout. The cute little Creative Embellishments Distressed Snowflake Flairs added the perfect touch as well.

The Pine and Tall tree chippys were all first covered in some texture crackle paste.

After the trees were dry I added some different beads with Shimmerz Puttin’ on the Glitz Paste-eez.

One more close up of all the gorgeous Creative Embellishments products!

I also have a process video from start to finish on this layout. Click on the link.
That is it for me for today! Don’t forget to check out the January challenge …. Make sure to share all of your creations on our Facebook page… Take care and Happy Scrapping!

Amazing - Shimmerz Paints

Hello Shimmerz fans! Today I have a fun beach themed layout to share, with lots of yummy Shimmerz Products on it! The papers are Vintage Artistry from 49 and Market…they go perfect for my theme and with the vintage photo that I found. My Aunt and my best guess is the 1950’s sometime. 
The NEW Paste-eez Salt of the Earth is perfect for all of your stencilling and I used it with 3 different stencils in the background. 

I also used Hot Fudge Vibez, Well Blue Me Down and Don’t Be Suede Colorings to highlight background sections on this layout.
My finishing touches are with splashes and splatters of Penny 4 Your Thoughts and Giddy About Green Inklingz.
I created my first video in a very long time…and it took me forever to do it. This is video of my process on this layout. It is a wee bit blurry but you can see the step by steps that I did to create it. Click on the link to go to the video. I will work on the blurries on my next video.

Family - 49 and Market

Hi everyone! I am back with another 49 and Market share, and I must say I am addicted to these gorgeous collections and embellishments! Today I have a fun layout created with the Heirloom Botanicals Collection. I fussy cut the Conservatory sheet around the edges and attached it to a sheet of the Patch. I used the edges of one of Gabi’s Square Stitch Stamps to stamp around the edges of the paper, and I tucked in a few scrap pieces of lace between the paper layers.

The Cut Out Sheet with this collection has amazing pieces to fussy cut out and add to your projects! In this close up you can see the cute little bird house and bird cut outs. Use a little pop up to add dimension.


Lots more fussy cut pieces from the Cut Out Sheet.  
Lastly I added a bit more stamping with Gabi’s Butterflies are Free Stamp Set and of course the gorgeous 49 and Market blooms to finish it all off. I tucked in some Garden Blooms in Pale Lavender and Blush with a couple of White Roses.

Joy - 49 and Market Vintage Artistry

Hi everyone and Happy New Year! I am so excited to share my first creation for 49 and Market…I just adore all of their products and I am very honoured to be part of their amazing DT! I created my layout with papers from the Vintage Artistry Collection. The background sheet is Specimen 

I tore a few pieces from the Laws of Nature sheet to add layers behind the clusters. The cute chippys are all from Creative Embellishments.  

I just love the cut out sheets with each collection. I fussy cut some pieces from the Flora and Fauna cut out sheet to tuck in with the gorgeous 49 and Market flowers.
I added some stamping with the Vintage Artistry stamp set…and look at those adorable fussy cut butterflies! Just add a little pop up behind them to give them some dimension on your creation! My flower clusters are layers of Rustic Barn large blooms, Rustic Barn small blooms, and Saffron Garden Blooms and a Garden Bloom Vine.

One last close up...and some splashes of Shimmerz Inklingz.
