Hi everyone, today I have a layout to share with you. For this layout I used the Home For The Holidays collection. Even though this is a Christmas collection the papers are very versatile and can be used on any layout. I love the brown tones in this collection.
My background paper is Together, I started by priming the paper with clear gesso before I added light modeling paste through three different stencils. Most of this was covered up but just enough peaks out from underneath.
 I added colour with mists in brown, peach and deep red, then a put on some random stamping to add another layer of depth to my layout.
I made a photo mat for my photo with layers of paper in Traditions and Christmas Chorus. I lightly distressed the edges and layered in a couple of doilies.
I embellished this layout with lots of flowers, metal trinkets, a resin frame, lightbulb, twine, lace, pearls, cheesecloth, and a cute little bird.
The title is Blue Fern Studios Chipboard covered with white embossing powder.

Baby Shoes for a Little Baby Girl

Hello Everyone <3

Congratulations with Valentines Day, everyone <3 <3 <3

My plan for today, was toshow you a box I have made for my Boyfriend on Valentines Day, but since I’m moving to a new home, there was unfortunately no time to take pictures of the project, so you habe to wait a few weeks 😉 But today I have a pink sweet box which I will share with you. This box was basically a box to a Samsung phone, but now I have given a new life to.

On the box I have used three different sheets from The Vintage Baby, these sheets I have used to dressed on the outside of the box. On the edges I have used Distress Ink Ground Espresso.

Vintage-Baby-P

To bring out the sugar sweet on the box, I have used details like silver chain with clear and ligth brown diamonds. In between the bottom and the ild, I’ve also attached a pearl string around the box.

The flowers I have used are white flowers from Wild Orchids, an extra little detail I used with the flowers, are a little white crown.

On the top of the box, you can see that I have a little plateau and on top of that I have one pair of white baby shoes. These shoes are from a dies sett from Marianne Design. The set you can also find a model for a shoes to a baby boy. On the shoes I’ve use a pink button, white thread, pink bling and a silver charms.

You open up the lid, you will see that I have decorated the inside of the box as well. The punch is from Martha Stewart, I have also attached a pearl string.

Now you have seen my little pink box, to a little baby girl <3

Hello dear friends! Its Evgenia Petzer with you today and I have made some projects and will now show them one by one to you.

So first come up the masculines projects. In Russia we celebrate the 23rd of February as the mens day, so I made some projects fro this them. As for me the Nyhavn collection has definitely some masculine part in it, so I used this limited collection for my projects.  I added some random black stitching, some kraft die cuts and metal bits and pieces (Prima ones)

Goodmorning everyone,

I am so amazed by the Maja design team and I still need to pinch myself sometimes that I am part of it. It’s always a blessing to work with these beautiful papers Marie designs. Today I would like to show you a layout I made with the “Nyhavn”collection I feel really sad that this is a limited edition one because the colors of the papers are very unique. For my layout I also used some beautiful chiffon flowers & lace by Tresors de Luxe which go great with the Nyhavn collection. The chipboard I used is by Creative Embellishments they have very romantic designs <3

The picture I used is one of my cousin Nicole {who lives in Florida} her teenage daughter & her boyfriend. Not so long ago he asked her to marry him and they are so crazy about each other. My cousin had her at a very young age {party girl} and I never would of imagine that she is the one who is so responsible and religious as she is. She is such a amazing young lady and I wish her all the happiness in the world.

I added some rub on words that I got at my local dollar store to give my layout a more personal touch. Not that long ago Nadene her grandmother {from her dad’s side} contacted me because she is also a scrapper and we had a lovely talk and this will be a present to her hope she will like it. I really love this picture of the two of them so adorable….

I have layouts published before but not in real magazines only online ones. So if I say amazing that will be a understatement I better say WOW WOW WOW thank you Scott Publication, Cheery Lynn Designs & Maja Design…this is the layout in the magazine made with the pretty “Enjoying Outdoors”collection.
