Treasure the Time by Mel Connell


Welcome to November one and all. Thanks for stopping by once again to check out what we have been up to over at Couture Creations. 

I have been having so much fun creating with the new Couture Creations Paper range Vintage Rose Garden. It is just so lovely. 

First up I embossed an A4 sheet of acetate in one of our A4 embossing folders. I torn pieces of this off to use as embellishments on my layout. 

Next up chose two sheets of paper that you would like to work with. I used less patterned pieces for this. Tape them together on three sides leaving to top un stuck. Distress the edges and ink with brown ink to shabby it up a little bit. 

From the top middle cut into your top sheet toward the bottom of your pages. with a spritz of water to soften the paper a little roll these back to expo the second layer of paper. Dry these off with your heat tool to hold the position. You may also need a little adhesive under the rolls. 

Using the Time patterned paper from the Vintage Rose Garden paper collection cut out all the clock and floral spray elements to use as embellishments on your layout. 

Also cut your self some leave or branch dies in coordinating green papers to use a fillers. I cut in Kraft cardstock two Cog Border dies also. 

Adhere all these dies cut and hand cut patterned paper pieces to either side of the paper rolls. Don't forget to add in the torn pieces of embossed acetate. 

To finish off sprinkle round a few paper flowers to fill in any spaces that need a little something. I added my photo for this to the centre of  the Mirror Mirror doily die cut and placed this at the bottom of the paper rolls to cover any rough edges that may be there. 

The end result is a very sweet layout that is perfect for more formal photos like Balls, Weddings and Christening photos. Or just that special picture of that special someone.
