Guest Designer | Bridget Louw


 I am very honoured to have been asked to be the guest designer on the Couture Creations blog for the month of June.
I was sent a collection of goodies by Couture Creations, consisting of some of their new dies, embossing folders and the beautiful Hearts Ease collection.

I created this layout using a piece of off-white cardstock as my base, then adding C0724182 Pansy Background cut at 11.75" x 11.75" and C0724176 Orchard Delight cut at 11.25" x 11.25".

Both of these have distressed edges, created by using your scissors to "shave" the edges. Ink the edges with your favourite brown ink for a vintage look.

Glue the 3 layers together. Your layout should now look something like this.

Add some layers using various papers from the paper pad, they are all so gorgeous it was really difficult to choose. Layer them as per the picture below.

One of my new fave Couture Creations dies must be Jocund Julie (C0724303). I cut out some of the Hearts Ease paper using the die and then cut the square in half diagonally to create a faux photo corner.

Next create a frame using the dies in the Mirrored Flourishes set (C0724249).

Now that you have finished creating all the die cut decorative elements it's time to assemble the rest of your layout. Add your photo and title of your choice. My chipboard elements were inked and then misted to match the colour scheme in Hearts Ease.

Mist some flowers to match the layout and add some sparkle with a shimmer spray. The dragonfly was cut from the paper.

 One of the papers in the collection has some beautiful phrases on it, perfect to put in the oval frame I created. This one is from C0724193 Pansy Tags.

How lovely is the die cut as a photo corner. I added some of the Couture Creations flatbacked pearls for a feminine touch.

 Finish the assembly of your layout using all the bits you have created. This layout takes no time at all to complete.

Thank you for visiting with me today on the Couture Creations blog. I will be back next week with the second project as guest designer for June.
