2015 Design Team Introducing Bernii Miller

#couturecreationsaus



Hi Bernii here
I am a passionate memory keeper and love it in all forms from scrapbooking, project life through to journaling. There really is nothing more satisfying when my two little children hand me items and ask me to "scrap' it for them. They too can see how special it is that mummy creates treasured items for them to pull out and look at over and over again. And they do!! 

I started scrapbooking 10 years ago, and actually stopped scrapping about 2 years after I started. I became really bored with the same old same old products that were out there and found it quite uninspiring. That is till I found the huge community of scrapbookers on the internet and came across Becky Higgins, Heidi Swapp and Elizabeth Kartchner when they were just starting out. I bought and bought and bought so many supplies but they still sat there and collected dust.. It wasn't till the start of last year when I woke one morning and my husband asked me why I was not following my crafting dreams and passions more. I guess being a mother to two small children kinda gets in the way of that. So it was at that moment that I decided to get back into my scrapbooking full throttle instead of it always sitting in the wings and trying to find the time to play. Now I make the time. 

It has taken over my life now .. In a good way. I am always dreaming up ways to make layouts or mini albums and making sure I am always trying to capture both the special and not so special moments in my families lives .
I have been incredibly lucky to be named  a Scrapbooking Memories Master for 2014 ( a long time dream of mine ) and to be on some fabulous design teams.  As much as Scrapbooking is recording memories for me , it also an outlet for me to be creative so I love to experiment, layer and add loads of product that makes me happy..


Helloooo...
today I am sharing with you some of my first work for the Couture Creations Design Team. 


I was asked towards the end of last year by the lovely team over at Couture Creations if I wouldn't mind creating some projects for them to take over to CHA with their new Kalini Collection. I jumped at the chance!! I  was totally inspired by Maggie Holmes album that she created in an old hardcover book. The Vintage Rose Paper Collection was just perfect teamed with this idea. 

I decided to create  a whole album using the entire release from this collection and I managed to use almost every single die from this release. 

So let me show you how I created this little album that hold's precious little memories of my little girl Abigail. This post is photo heavy so grab a coffee and start your day off with some Couture Creations inspiration. 



Disclaimer ** At the time that I made this album I used my own personal paper doilies , but the new Frames & Frills collection would be perfect to create your own doilies for this project.

I created a window pocket on the inside of the album, and added in confetti pieces flower dies to add a little interest.

These cog pieces were perfect to show off my little girl being  "daddy's little helper" . To make them a little more feminine I simply sprayed over the die cuts with a little gold glimmer spray.

This next page would have to be my favourite from the album. I just adore these new Falling Blossoms dies from the Kalini collection and they teamed so well with watercolour background that I created here.

This is another of my favourites using the same dies from above but this time using different papers from the paper pad.

To create some height to the cute little owl, I created two cuts and then layered one above the other using foam dots to lift the top layer.

 I am so happy with how the album turned out and so happy that I was able to use fabulous dies from one collection to create a full album of memories.
