Flourish layout-CE daily

Hi fellow scrappers...
I'm here to share a baby layout I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments, using some of the stamps and chipboard elements from the Creative Embellishments store..

Here is the layout I created:

I used photos of my little grand daughter for this layout.  I did not want to use the usual pinks just because she is a girl, so I went with creams, tans and light blues.. I really like how the layout turned out..

How about few close ups and some details:

I used the word "Flourish" from the Flourish word set..
I covered it with heavy white gesso, then painted it using white craft paint and finally rubbing the bottom of the letters with Tumbled Glass distress ink, which is the blue ink that I also used on the edges of my layout.


 I cut the Retro square panel into several pieces and then applied heavy white gesso to them.. I then mixed some yellow and brown paint together, painting the squares and finally dry brushing them with the white gesso to soften the colors. 

 for other items I used on my layout, flowers and leaves by I am roses, white cardstock for the base, Distress ink and Mélange art pebbles. thanks for stopping by and checking out my layout design.. 

 Till next time 
 Hugs Nanné

By the Sea mini album

Hi fellow scrappers..
I'm here to share a cute little mini album I created as my design team project for Creative embellishments, using the passport journal cover..  I think its absolutely the perfect size for a cute little memory keeper..

Here is what I created:
For the cover, because I wanted it a bit thicker, I created the spine out of some spare chipboard I had..This way I got 1.5" thickness and was able to add lots of fun pages to the inside of the album.  I also decorated the front using the fishnet panel, anchor, flowers, leaves and some cheesecloth.  
The papers I used are by Graphic 45..

How about some closeups:

When you flip the album open these are the first pages you see.. I love that lady on the beach and I wanted to keep her whole. I was able to cut the paper into two pieces and layer them onto the flip tabs I had created on that page..

When you flip the flaps, this is what you see.. its us boarding the ship.. The weather wasn't all that great and it was a bit windy, but we all stood outside on the deck and watched the ship go out to sea..

This is the next page.. some photos of my hubby and then added lots of pockets on the other page to add photos to.. I had so many photos that it was hard to choose which ones to add and which ones to leave out, so those pockets came in handy to hold all of those photos..

and finally the last page of the album.. more photos and I used one of the anchors for the page with my hubby on it.. went perfectly with that saying and then for the back page, I just added a pocket.. I will be doing some journaling on a later date to go with all of the pictures I added.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my mini..
Till next time
p.s. here are the chippies I used to create my album:

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:

and my goofy guys..  
My oldest son Aaron in the back and my youngest Adam in the front..

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!
Here are the chipboard elements and stamps I used to create my layout:
