10 Months - Couture Creations


Hi! I'm sharing a layout featuring my youngest niece for Couture Creations today. Time flies by so fast and the monthly milestones are some of my favorite photos to scrap. I knew I wanted a super girly page so I played up the femininity with some pretty Couture Creations floral dies and embossing folders.


I used the Daisy Nesting Dies to create these beautiful blooms. I couldn't resist adding some extra sparkle with Couture Creations Glitzin' Glamour and Gemstones.


I used the Couture Creations Dazzling Doily Die and Fleur-De Frame Nesting Dies to add several delicate layers to my page.


To create the flowers, cut several daisy shapes from patterned paper with the Daisy Nesting Dies.  Gather 3 larger and 2 smaller petal shapes for each bloom. Using the Piercing Tool, punch a hole in the center of each petal. Use a brad to hold all the layers of each bloom together. Liberally spritz the petals with water and fold up around the brad.  Set aside to dry.


To add a fun pop of color to the flower petals, carefully peel apart and separate the layers of petals. Using a paint brush, randomly add acrylic paint and gesso to the petals. Set aside to dry.


Add some extra sparkle to the flowers with Glitzin' Glamour and Gemstones. I used Crystalina Glitzin' Glamour and Seaspray Gemstones.


Emboss a piece of patterned paper with the Great Fubu Embossing Folder and cut out several of the leaves. Add Aztec Gold Glitzin' Glamour to select leaves for extra shimmer.


To create the photo mat, emboss a piece of cardstock with the Petal Pleasures Embossing Folder, lightly sand with the Couture Creations Sanding Block and ink the edges with a contrasting color of ink.


Cut a piece of cardstock with the Dazzling Doily Die and place under the photo mat on the page.


To create some embellishments for the layout, emboss a piece of cardstock with the All A Flutter Embossing Folder. Cut out a large butterfly and several of the circle designes and embellish with Vintage Gold Gemstones.
