SK8R - Couture Creations


Hi! I'm so excited to share my first project for Couture Creations! I created a fun and funky 6x6 layout featuring the Great Fubu Embossing Folder from the Sweet Dreams Collection. The embossed background and floral embellishment I added to this page really helps to capture the excitement my daughter had after putting on her first pair of roller skates.


I embossed my cardstock and then sanded the raised impression with the Couture Creations Sanding Block to help the pattern pop. I'm all about options and I love that the three different grits on this Sanding Block allow me to distress, sand or antique my paper to match the style of my project!


A scalloped edge is one of my favorite patterns and I paired that with a youthful print to make a hip photo mat for this page.  I used the second largest square from the Scallop Square Nesting Die Set. The Couture Creations Nesting Dies cut, emboss and stencil and each package comes with a magnetic mat for easy storage!


I used the Great Fubu Embossing Folder and some Core'dinations  cardstock to create a floral embellishment for my layout.  After I embossed my cardstock I cut the pattern out using my Couture Creations Craft Scissors. I added a Gemstone to the flower center for a nice pop of color.


Here's a close-up of the flower. The Core-dinations cardstock paired with the Couture Creations embossing folder yields a fantastic crisp impression. No torn or cracked paper here!


I added some sparkle and shine to several of my stickers with some Crystalina Glitzin' Glamour Glitter Glue. I love the way the glitter catches the light!

I hope I have inspired you. Thanks for stopping by today!
