Joy - CE daily

Hi fellow scrappers..
I'm here to share a fun Christmas themed layout I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments.. I wanted to change up the color scheme to my xmas tree this year and so, I thought what a fun way to show case it than to create a layout around the colors.. I wanted a white and silver tree with accents of light blue and brown..
So, here is the layout I created and our Christmas tree for this year:
Nothing harder than trying to photograph your Christmas and trying to get the colors just right..LOL

For this layout, I was able to use those adorable little elf chippies.. I decided to keep them white to go with my theme..
I also decided to keep some of the chippies natural, only dry brushing them with white paint to add a little highlights.
It was an important to element to myself to add the year.. I other wise probably would forget which year this photo was taken :)
I adore these window chippies.. I painted mine white (to match our house) and then added some silver ribbon to the back to look like curtains.. I also added some snowflake paste to the window, added some mini art stones and then dry brushed everything with white paint to help them all blend together..
Thank you for stopping by today and checking out my project..
Till next time

Adore layout-CE daily

Hello Fellow scrappers.. I'm here to share a winter themed layout I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments using a few photos of my daughter, who by the way became a mom for the first time last Saturday (Nov 25th).. We received our very first grand baby, a little girl .. So, you will see lots of baby girl layouts in the future..LOL

But for now, here is the layout I created for today's reveal: 
Firstly, let me just start by saying how much I love those trees.  It was super easy to get some texture on them. I used some Snowflake paste by Prima and then painted them white.. I wanted that extra white look, so that is the reason why I painted over the snowflake paste, which you totally don't have if you don't want to..
I adore these hanging snowflakes.. I decided to cut them apart, so I could more and was able to scatter them through my layout. I decided to paint them white and add some pink flat back gems..
 
I wanted to create a little texture to the background of my layout, so I used  the snowflake stencil and texture paste.
Here you can really see the detail and texture the snowflake paste added to the trees.. I also dry brushed some white paint to the flower clusters I created..
I cut one of the mini frames in two and tucked it behind my photo mat.. one on the bottom and the other half on top.  for some final detail, I added some clean plastic drops through out the layout, wanted it to resemble water drops :)
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my layout..Till next time

Castle visit mini album-CE daily

Hi everyone...
 I'm here to share a Castle themed mini album I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments, using the Bracket mini album from the Creative Embellishments store.. It was super easy to apply the paper to it, I just glued down a 6x6 piece of paper and then trimmed the edges with my craft knife.. Used a sanding brick to distress the edges..
This mini album will have photos of use from last summer as we (us and my in-laws) visited one of the oldest castles here in Finland.. You are welcome to roam the castle and see how people lived back in the day.. They have historians through the castle to tell you about a room or an event etc.. We had a great time..
Here is what I created:
for the cover, I used a distressed brick stencil and some home made texture paste (lots of videos on youtube on how to make your own texture paste) and I dried it using a heat tool, which created a bit of the crackle/bubbly look. I then distressed it a bit using distress ink, vintage photo and then rubbed it with silver inka gold paint.
For the chipboard elements, I painted those black and then rubbed silver Inka Gold on them, kind of like a rub-n-buff..
I added lots of chipboard goodies to the inside of my mini album so how about we check out the inside of the album:
   
and there we have it..
I just send my photos off to be printed and then I can choose which ones will have a permanent home in my album..
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my mini album..
Till next time

CAT shaped word album

Hi everyone,I'm here to share a fun word album I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments, using the Cat word album set in the Creative Embellishments store..
Here is the album I created:
This has to be one of the most fun I've had with an album in a long time.. I didn't have any cat themed papers so went with some fall themed instead and I used photos of my moms cat who has been living with since my passed away almost a year ago..
How about a few close ups and some details:
I used light blue Gelatos to color the cat shaped chippies and adhered them using foam tape.
 
I also used some of the cat themed wood veneer pieces to decorate my pages..  I added some tiny art stones to the cat food bowl to look like food, since he is always begging for food..
and on the right side, a photo of my husband holding the cat that never leaves him alone..LOL
I added a pocket to the left side of the album with photos of the cat sitting in a box next to my desk.
I highlighted my cat chippies with heart shaped chippies, flowers and orange colored fibers.
and for a tiny detail, I added a tiny bell.
and there you have my word album..
Thank you for stopping by today.. Till next time..
