Mother by Adrian Bolzon

#couturecreationsaus #ultimatecrafts

Hello there everyone , Adriana Bolzon here today and I am sharing with you all another tutorial for Couture Creations - Ultimate Crafts. The Magnolia Lane papers and embellishments are all so gorgeous and the beautiful papers and embellishments are all Designed by Sue Smyth.

Today, I have created a very vintage Mother's Day themed Layout.  I love the pink tones and touches of lavender hues in this paper collection,  I have created this special layout of my Mother-in-law. She had a milestone birthday recently, 90 years old. 

"Mother" layout 

Using the Magnolia Lane papers and embellishments to decorate my layout.

The flowers were all Ivory ones, I coloured them with sprays inks.
"Victoria Velvet and Rusty Hinge" coloured sprays.

I cut the papers from the Magnolia Lane Papers - the reverse side of Poetical Labels ULT157497, cut a length 2 inches wide and another 4 inches wide.
Inking the edges of these papers and then adhere them to a white card stock as shown below.

Taking the white lace I used some tea stained water and soak the white lace to create a very vintage lace look. I love working with Tea Dyed lace.

Adhere the lace with double sided lace as shown below.

Randomly stamp images with Rusty Hinge ink pad colour, dabbing a little Victorian Velvet ink colour the center of the layout. 

Cut 4 of the Magnolia Border Die  ULT 157527 with the lavender papers from the Magnolia lane paper collection.

Adhere the cutout borders dies in 
the centre of the two lines of lace trim.

Frame your matted photo with the Square Magnolia Frame, as shown below, Adhere the a resin embellishment on the top of frame.(as shown in photograph below)

Spray all paper flowers with selected inks and leave to dry before adhering to your page.

Create a cluster of flowers and leaves, with Magnolia Lane paper flowers and Bulk paper roses from Couture Creations. 

Using the stamp set Songbird - stamp some leaves and colour them in with watercolour pencils.
Colour the leave die cuts Rose Cutting die ULT157523 with Vintage and Green gum inks pad
Punch some extra leaves with a leave punch, adhere the leaves around the cluster of flowers.

Add some butterflies from the Magnolia Lane - Chipboard adhesive ULT157516
Add some Crystallina Glitzing glitter Glue C0721971 inside each flower.

Create a folded cluster with a postcard sampler from the Magnolia Lane Paper  "Pretty Patcher" ULT157498
Adhere some punched leaves and coloured paper roses, decorate with Pink Pearls from Couture Creations CO724635 Pretty Pink. With a piece of tea dyed lace - create a bow and adhere to the flowers.

Adhere word chipboard - Mother.

Mini Flip Album by Jo Simons

#couturecreationsaus #ultimatecrafts

Hello and thanks for stopping by.
Today I have another small mini flip album to share using the Magnolia Lane paper line and some of the co-ordinating dies.

This album I have kept very simple on the inside as I really wanted those beautiful papers to be the focus.

On the outside of my cover I have used that gorgeous leaf from the Rose Cutting die and teamed it up with the paper magnolia.  The doily is the Magnolia doily and some of the bling flourishes just to finish it off.  I have used one of the quotes from the 6 x 6 paper pads and also added that pretty little butterfly cabochon.

Here is a closer look at the inside of my album

On the left hand side I have created a waterfall.  The middle of the album has a top loading pocket and also opens up which you will see in the next photo.

This middle part opens up to show two small pockets which houses a couple of tags.  The small 6 x 6 paper pad was perfect as it had the small images in. Just perfect to make tags.

The whole middle part also lifts up to show another pocket on the bottom with two photo mats.  The top page has a belly band to hold a little flip out photo mat too.

On opening the right hand side, there is another flip page for more photo space.

I did add the tassels die to embellish this small side the album as it was a little small for a photo but still had room for a bit of journaling.

Thanks so much stopping by

Until next time

Happy crafting

Three Quick Layouts by Kerrie Gurney

#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)

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