The Bakery - Couture Creations

Hello there everyone, It is Adriana here today sharing a page I created for
 Couture Creations.

Now this layout is called "The Bakery".

The photo, was taken on our recent holiday in Northern Italy, in one of the beautiful old towns in the foothills.  There was this little cute shop with an old bicycle at the front. The bike had a basket with fresh herbs and flowers. The smell of the freshly baked bread and cakes was drifting down the old pathways. 
We had to stop and buy some beautiful fresh bread and cakes. Yummy :)

The name of the shop is called " Bottega del Pane" which translated is "The Bakery shop"

They had the yummiest biscuits as well. Everything was fresh and organic.

Of course, I created this layout with the latest releases Couture Creations products.

Here it is  "THE BAKERYusing the latest paper collection called
Hearts Ease paper collection
 this paper pad collection comes in two sizes 12x12 and 6x6
there are stickers, stamp sets and Ephemera Pack of collectables.
The Couture Creations Flowers are sprayed with bright yellow and vintage rose ink sprays.
 I think this brighten up the pages of this paper collection.






Here are some of the Couture Creations. products I used to create this layout.

On the top of the page , I created a pleated curtain type of fringe with the Hearts Ease paper collection
decorated the edges with C0721999 Vintage Gold Gemstones



 The pleats are created by hand, just folding and pleating and adhering them to the underside of the top papers.





I then mounted my 17cm x 10 cm photo on cream card stock, 
adhering it to the centre of page.

I cut several of the Elegant card cuts die - Mercato Flourish  CO724098
with some of the green paper from the
 Hearts Ease paper collection



When I first saw this flourish it reminded me of the seaweed or vine leaves.
I used the flourishes to create many leaves and therefore created a vine leaf around the page. 
I also added a little of the Glitzin glamour glitter glue C0721976 on the leaves.





Using the Hearts Ease paper collection Set of stamps,
There are 3 different set of stamps.
I used the large Butterfly stamp from the 
C072400 Hearts Ease Borders and Butterflies stamps 



I stamped several butterflies on card stock and coloured them in
with watercolour pencils and water brush.

I then cut out the butterflies and adhered them to the page with C0723817 3D Glue spots
adding a touch of Glitzin glamour glitter glue C0721976 Crystallina to the butterflies, for a touch of sparkle.




The flowers are the amazing white flowers
from Couture Creations White Bulk Flowers
they are 
C0724298 Camden Beaded Cottage flower
C0723019 Beaded flower with script paper
C074300 La Belle Vintage Blooms
C0724297 Camden cottage rose 3 cm.

These flowers can be coloured in what ever colour you want them to be
How brilliant is that, you can colour them with inks, sprays and paints.




Hope you like my project for today

"Into the Wild" & Some exciting times with Kaisercraft

Hi everyone…thanks so much for stopping by today.
 This month's collection of papers at Kaisercraft are all very different.
I have created for my Kaisercraft design team projects 2 layouts,
with the paper collection called, "Into the Wild".

As the name suggests, this collection of papers are all about
wild things, wild animals, zoos and a very masculine and earthy theme to the papers. Many fun animal prints, which I love as well.


Go to the KAISER CRAFT BLOG  for more inspirational ideas from
the rest of the awesome Design Team.


I created 2 layouts,
We were very lucky to go to Taronga Zoo in Sydney last year.
 This zoo is so amazing, you have to travel by ferry across the bay.
As it is across the other side of the city, so you will see the Sydney city landscape in the distance.

Great memories and amazing animals at this zoo.
The sticker sheet that you can purchase with this collection, has cool sentences, like, "we're all going to the Zoo" etc.
The papers have great animal prints.








My Second layout, "DISCOVER", photo taken on our recent 
Zoo trip in Adelaide
to see the two Pandas. This one is always eating, he was so cute.
I guess is he my fav animal at the Zoo.






Until next time, thanks for looking and for your lovely comments.

"Explore" layout - Couture Creations

Hello there everyone, sharing a page I created for Couture Creations.

Today I am sharing a layout using some of the new 
release Couture Creations products.

I created a layout, titled "Explore" using the latest paper collection called
Hearts Ease paper collection
with this paper pad collection comes in two sizes 12x12 and 6x6
there are stickers, stamp sets and Ephemera Pack of collectables.



The photo was taken recently while our holiday in Venice, 
on a bridge overlooking the Grand Canal. Such a beautiful place.

I used the new release dies collection
Couture Creations - KALINI Intricutz dies
with the Hearts Ease paper collection, Ephemera  & Stamps.

Here is my step-by-step how I created this layout.

I firstly distressed and inked the edges with a Rustic ink pad and sponge dauber
around the sheet of paper CO724182 from the Hearts Ease paper collection
Then I cut  Hearts Ease paper collection  C0724181 paper in half,
distressing the top of paper and inking the edges. Leaving the bottom row of Pansies
on the bottom of the page, I also inked the edges a little with Rustic Ink pad.
I then cut a strip of C0724185 Heart Ease paper about 6cm wide, 
distressed and inked the top edge 
and placed it slightly under the middle of page, as shown below.





I then mounted my 17cm x 10 cm photo on cream card stock, 
adhering it to the centre of page, as shown below.




The flowers dies I used for my layout
are from the Couture Creations - KALINI Intricutz dies

C0724251 KALINI Falling Blossoms die



To create the flowers with this die, I love
layers and I used C0723817 3D Glue spots
in between each petal flower (4 different sized flowers for each flower)




I cut about 12 of the  C0724256 KALINI Bird on a Maple Branch
with green Heart Ease paper C0724177,



I trimmed off the little bird at the top
and glue the leaves around the flowers and photo, 
as shown on my layout.

Apply Rustic and Berry ink to Imaginarium Designs chipboard flourish
and adhere to bottom on page also
adhere with 3D Glue spots the clock face from the 
Hearts Ease paper collection - Ephemera collectables.
Also, adhere a flourish arrow from the Ephemera collectables, 
as shown below.
Glue down a triple bow of twine or string, adhere under flowers, as shown.





Using the Hearts Ease paper collection Set of stamps,
There are 3 different set of stamps.
I used the C072400 Hearts Ease Borders and Butterflies stamps &
C072401 Hearts Ease Time goes on stamps


I stamped with the stamps and ink pad - the small butterfly scattered around my layout, I stamped also the words "Explore"& "dream" and also stamped a flourish on the top edge of papers, as shown below. The three hearts from the  Hearts Ease paper collection Ephemera collectables are glued down with 3D glue spots.



Adding touches of Couture Creations Vintage Gold Gemstones around
my page and flowers.

Cut a C0724256 KALINI "life is beautiful" title die cut and cream card stock 


adhere with glue and place on top right hand side of photo.

Hope you like my project for today
"Explore, Life is beautiful"  :)

the rest of the awesome Design Team members, all this week

The textured white clusters of leaves are created with an embossing folder, Kaisercraft have some wonderful designs in embossing folders.
applying white paint of the raised surface of the embossing folders and
gently pressing down on the black background card stock. Great technique.
