Three Quick Layouts - Couture Creations | Ultimate Crafts

#kerriegurney  #couturecreationsaus #ultimatecrafts

Hi Everyone,
Kerrie here sharing three quick layouts I created for Couture Creations Blog
I got caught up creating and forgot to take photos while creating so no step by steps but they are all techniques I have done before.



On this layout of my cute great nephew and niece at the beach, I have used the negative from the Little Things die from Couture Creations It's a Beautiful Life collection to create a tag


I also used Gold and Blue Perfect Pearls mixed together to create the watery look




On this layout of me when I was young I have used Ultimate Crafts Magnolia Lane Pattern Paper and Embossing Folder


I spread a thin layer of texture paste and then sprayed my embossing folder with water and stamped it into the texture paste
(make sure you clean your embossing folder off straight away so the texture paste doesn't dry on your folder)




On this layout of #1 daughter when she was 2, I have used scraps of Ultimate Crafts Magnolia Lane patterned paper, Magnolia Corners die and Chipboard butterflies and the little things die from Couture Creations  It's a Beautiful Life Collection


I have only used the top section of the Cottage Pollen flower which I  sprayed blue to match the background

Love Always Layout | Stuck?! Sketches April Challenge 2016

#kerriegurney 

Hi Everyone,
My layout today is of my beautiful sister Megan, who passed away in Jan 2016  this photo was taken just after Megan was diagnosed with cancer. We had a girls weekend up the coast and I will forever treasure those memories of our wonderful weekend with our besties, I just wish I had taken more photos, sadly we thought we would have more time with Megan, but her cancer was so aggressive and took hold so quickly.
 I look at this photo and other from the weekend and all the memories from that weekend come flooding back to me and one thing that I remember the most is Megan kept smiling all weekend.
This is why taking photos and recording your memories is just so important.


I have been sick with pneumonia for the last few weeks and so with lots of time to browse the internet, rather than shopping online,
I thought I would get browse some challenge sites for inspiration.
I came across this sketch from Stuck?! Sketches and used it as my inspiration for my layout



here are a couple of steps on how my background was created


layer all the paper pieces and mark their placement


I  used the Ultimate Crafts Magnolia Lane Damask Frame die to create a mask for adding texture paste


while the texture paste was still wet I sprinkled on some Couture Creations ultra fine iridescent glitter


some close ups




Make sure you stop by Stuck?! Sketches Blog and see all the fabulous layouts others have created using their sketch



 Happy Creating

Capture the Moment | Couture Creations Ultimate Crafts

#kerriegurney #couturecreationsaus #ultimatecrafts

Hi Everyone Kerrie here with another tutorial for Couture Creations Ultimate Crafts blog using the gorgeous Ultimate Crafts Magnolia Lane collection.

My baby girl turned sweet 16 in December last year,  I absolutely love these photos of her in front of her photobooth backdrop I created from rosettes and tissue pom poms
(which I have to admit we still have hanging up as we love it so much, the upside it will be perfect for photos Easter morning)


onto my tutorial


On this layout I have torn the paper layers rather than using a trimmer. To get your paper to tear where you want it too just use a paintbrush with a bit of water and paint a line where you would like the paper to tear.


next up I fussy cut the floral border from Butterflies & Lace patterned paper ...yes I fussy cut it is so not my thing but as you can see I am not too fussy with my cutting :)


 I then die cut a Magnolia Heart from white cardstock to use as a stencil
(don't forget to use Quick Release Die Paper so the cardstock come out of the die easily



I then embossed a piece of  Damask Curtains using  Magnolia lace embossing folder


I then cut it in half 


next I used Cottonball Pearl Drops and the Magnolia Heart Die Cut to add a subtle and pearlescent texture to my base white cardstock, set aside to dry


when I finished I covered the whole heart with a thin layer of Pearl Drops 


and set it aside to dry off so now I have a beautiful pearlescent heart to use on another project.


Next up i mixed Madagascar and Cottonball Pearl drops together to get a lovely soft pink shade


and then painted the pearl drops onto the tips of my Magnolia paper flowers


now my paper magnolias have a lovely pearlescent tint to them 


I then layered all my pieces together. I have used the following Magnolia Lane papers
ULT157489 Floral Fancy, ULT157494 Damask Curtains & ULT157491 Butterflies and Lace
Use you fingernails to curl the edges of your layers for more texture and pinch the leaves on the fussy cut border.


I then added some paper flowers including the pearlescent tinted Magnolias, a sprinkling of sequins and pearls and some muslin for texture



 don't you love how deeply the embossing folder embosses


a closer look


I hope you have enjoy my tutorial and give my techniques a try

I have used the following Artdeco Creations Products

ULT157489 Magnolia Lane 12x12 Patterned Paper, Floral Fancy
ULT157491 Magnolia Lane 12x12 Patterned Paper, Butterflies and Lace
