Kraft and Teal!

Hi!  Been a while between posts.  Today I'm sharing with you a layout I did during the week from my 40th birthday party 2 years ago.  Oops, I just gave away my age!!!!  

For a little while now I have had a desire to create with Kraft & aqua.  It is a combination I really love.
This is what I came up with….

Some closeups:

I actually couldn't get my hands on any card stock that matched the beautiful colour, so I painted some white card with clear gesso, then painted on the same colour that I spritzed the chipboard with.  Wuooolaaah!  Perfectly matching base.  I embossed the envelope in my Big Shot, then inked over the raised dots with chalk ink.  Pretty happy with how that turned out.

Products used:
Card stock - Kraft & White
Chipboard - Blue Fern & Dusty Attic
Melissa Frances Mini bags & tags
Flowers - Kaisercraft & Prima
Portacraft Rhinestone circle frames
Cheery Lynn Designs - fanciful flourish die
Prima Colour Bloom - Glistening Waves
Iridescent Medium
Lace Hessian

Thanks for stopping by!
Until next time, happy scrapping.

My Magoo & BeYOUtiful

Hi there!  September already?!  I can't believe how fast this year is flying by…
I'd like to share with you my DT work for A2Z Scraplets today.

My first layout is titled "Magoo" which is one of many cute nicknames I had for him (and still do) when he was a little boy.

Some closeups:

The chipboard I used on this layout is called Chicken Wire Large Frame.  I generously coated the chipboard with Rico Design "Structure" paste which has a very gritty texture - I love it!  The chipboard was then drenched with black Dylusions mist.  To my surprise the result was a blue-ish colour which worked perfectly with the paper range I used.  

Products used:
Paper - Authentique Suave Collection
Chipboard - A2Z Scraplets
Rico Design "Structure" Paste
Black Dylusions Mist

The next layout I wanted to share is title "BeYOUtiful" and features my daughter.

The BeYOUtiful title was generously coated with Liquid Pearls for a wonderful metallic, pearly finish.

While the flourish was simply smothered in glimmer mist for a lovely shimmery finish.

Paper - BoBunny Primrose Collection
Chipboard - A2Z Scraplets
