Masculine canvas-CE daily

Hi fellow crafters..
I'm here to share a 12x12 canvas I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments.

My hubby and our two boys are all mechanics by trade and the boys work for their dad.. So I love going in and snapping some photos now and then.. I decided to create a fun masculine canvas using some of the amazing chipboard elements from the Creative Embellishments store..

Here is the canvas I created:


I decorated my canvas using scrapbook paper, then created the frames using the chipboard elements. Once I had the frames placed, I added the piping, gears, etc.. This was a lot of fun to create..
How about a few close ups:

BABY word album

Hi fellow scrappers.. I'm here to share the BABY word album I created as my design team project Creative Embellishments . It was a lot of fun and when using your craft knife to cut the paper around the edges, its pretty easy as well..
Here is what I created:
I used the new Heaven Sent paper line by Prima and then lots of cute chippies and wood veneers to accent my album and pages.

How about we get to the good stuff:
   
 as you flip to the first page of the album, I added her "just born" photo. cute little wood veneers to the left and then a chipboard element, flowers and a few butterflies to the right.  Its hard to see, but I covered all of the chippies with Frosted Lace Stickles so they shimmer.  
 I gave the album to my daughter, so she can fill in all of her details.. These photos were taken the day as she was in the infant ICU for since she had swallowed some fluids and they wanted to put her on some antibiotics.   She is a trooper :) 
   
 I tried really had to keep the pages simple and not wanting a lot of bulk, which is definitely a challenge since I like to add a lot of embellishments.. 
 and the happy family.. last page of the album.. My daughter holding her daughter for the first time since she had a C-section and was in recovery over night.. There you have my baby album.. these are so much fun to create and I can't wait to start on the next one :) Till next time.. Hugs Nanné   p.s. Here are the chipboard and wood veneers I used to create this album: Baby Mini Album (Baby mini)

From This Moment

Hi everyone.. I'm here to share a layout I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments. This layout is for my grand daughters album.  I love receiving photos from my daughter as she holds her first baby and you can just feel the love.. All of us moms know that from the moment the baby comes to this world, our lives are forever changed..
Here is my layout:
I used the papers from the Prima's new Heaven Sent paper collection.. I'm totally in love with their paper line..
 
I also used the larger sentiment from the "From This Moment!" word set.. painted it white and adhered it to the photo.
The flourish I used is a heart shaped corner flourish, I used the smaller one and I cut it into several pieces.  One I adhered to the right side of the photo and the other to the left side of the layout as you can see here:
I also used soft pink, white and maroon colored flowers to accent my photo..
thank you for stopping by today and checking out my layout.. Till next time!
Hugs

Baby Girl layout-CE daily

Hi fellow scrappers.. I'm here to share a Baby themed layout I created  as my design team project for Creative Embellishments using some of the wonderful chippies and stamps from the Creative Embellishments store..
Here is the layout I created:
Everyone, this is my new grand daughter..
She is my very first grandchild and you will be seeing lots of baby themed projects from in the near future.. LOL
Here are a few close ups:
I cut a mini frame in two and added it to my layout as a frame for the cut away pieces and I also ended up cutting the ornate dangle into two pieces, so I could hang it in two parts of my layout.

Here you can see the other half of that hanging heart.. I also used the long film strip, by cutting it into a few pieces to get a lot of use out of it.. I used half to frame my photos and then the other two pieces I tucked behind my photo mat.

and there you have my baby girl layout.. 
Thank you for stopping by today.. Till next time
Hugs

Valentines Day cards set two: CE Daily

Hi fellow scrappers and card makers..
I'm here today to share a few Valentines Day cards I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments, using some of the wonderful Valentines Day themed chipboard elements from the Creative Embellishments store.
I used some of the 6x6 paper sets, an edge punch and some flowers that I've been holding onto and was able to create some fun cards.
Here are a few:
I decided to paint my chipboard elements white to accent the colors of the papers..
For the this card, I added the I love you text, painted it white, then some flowers to accent the element..
and I added the I Love You text to this one, I cut the hashtag off and then painted the chipboard element white.. attached it to the card using foam tape, then some flowers to accent the colors.
and for my third card, I created a heart shaped shaker card:
I traced the big heart shaped chipboard element onto the back of the paper, then fussy cut it.. added some foam tape and sequins plus some diamond dust to the cut out heart.  I then attached it to the card base,finally gluing my white painted heart to the top of the card, adding some frosted Lace stickles to it (for some glam) and finally attaching some flowers, which I then dry brushed with white paint to tone the colors..
Thanks for stopping by today and checking out my cards.. I hope its inspired you to get some of your own Valentines Day cards done this year.. Till next time..
Hugs
Nanné
