Jolie (Anna Griffin)

I have a couple of layouts to share today using an Anna Griffin collection - 'Jolie'.

As the papers are quite fussy in this collection I kept the layouts simple - punching edges etc wouldn't have shown up. Once I had created the background by layering up different papers I added a strip of ribbon, some die-cut shapes raised on foam tape (from the co-ordinating die-cut pack) a velvet flower and a 3D sticker with gold foil. The stickers which co-ordinate with this collection are beautiful - all layered up 3-Dimensionally and have foil accenting giving them a really smart finish.

We have different stickers and die-cut packs available from this collection to the ones I have used which would equally well.

I used the reverse of one of the papers for my cream square in the middle of this layout.

Treasured Moments (Kaiser Craft)

I have had one of the Kaiser Craft collections released at the end of last year on my desk for a while so thought it was about time I used it! I created two layouts using this beautiful collection in pretty greens, golds and pinks. 

For the first layout I used a punch around the page punch and the 'Memory' paper to create a focal point. I then layered papers up on top of this. The clock, butterflies and key hole were all cut from the 'Recall' paper.

For the second layout I used a sheet of Kraft cardstock as the base and the leftover part of the 'Nostalgia' paper which I had used on the first layout. I added a punched edge from cardstock and a border sticker. I stamped some sentiments using black archival ink and finished with a selection of paper flowers. The large rose on the top left hand corner was from the sticker sheet which co-ordinates with this set - I raised it with some foam tape to make it look 3D.

As always, a link to all the products I used in these layouts are below :)

Woodland Winter (Bo Bunny)

Today I wanted to share a couple of layouts I have been working on using the 'Woodland Winter'  collection by Bo Bunny. We haven't had any snow yet so I have kept the spaces blank in the hope we get snow soon and I can then just add my pictures! 

I kept the base of my first layout quite simple by layering up 4 different sized squares of cardstock/paper. I added some chipboard stickers and die-cuts to embellish.

My second layout started with a vertical strip of paper which I added a punched edge of snowflakes too on each side before backing it on some brown cardstock to make it stand out. I created a space to add 3 photos and embellished around this with some chipboard stickers and die-cuts from the noteworthy pack which co-ordinates with this collection.

Winter Whites (TPC Studio)

I have a snowy themed layout to share today for those of you lucky enough to see some snow at the moment.

 I started by cutting 1" off of 2 sides of the 'Falling Snow' paper and rounding the corners. I then drew 2 wavy lines free hand where I was going to cut the paper. I used a second sheet of the Denim Dot paper to create a small border on the wavy edge. Once finished I cut a piece from the Snow Day paper to go in the middle and stuck the layers down to form the background. 

The photo doesn't pick it up but the Winter White papers by TPC studios have a beautiful shimmer finish to them.

To embellish the page I cut a 6" x 8.25" rectangle from the Dark Denim Double Dot paper and rounded the corners before adding my embellishments on top and around this. The chipboard word was painted and finished with some glitter flue.

Silent Night (Craft & You)

I have another Christmas / Winter themed layout to share today - this time using papers from the 'Silent Night' collection by Craft & You. These papers are double-sided and heavyweight so they are nice to work with. 

I started this layout using the 'Silent Night - 05 Paper' as the base and then kept it simple by just adding a few layers of paper on top. To embellish I cut some poinsettia's from white and green cardstock, layered these up and added a jewelled flower centre.

I painted a snowflake swirl piece of chipboard with white paint and added some glitter glue to the areas with the snowflakes. I also added the glitter glue to the snow covering the trees on the background paper.
