Love - Creative Embellishments

Good morning!
I recently had a birthday and my hubby bought me these gorgeous papers from Kaisercraft and when I saw the mood board from Creative Embellishments it was the perfect match!


I started by layering and distressing the papers


I used blue distress stain on the Heart Lace Border then glued it to coordinating paper and trimmed the paper around it. 


I also used the blue stain on the Love title piece 


I added some autumn leaves that I used different shades of stain and mist on to the flower cluster 




This months twist was to use wood on your project.I trimmed some twigs that I found on the ground, glued them together then added some flowers and more autumn leaves

So go over to the Creative Embellishments blog and check out all the inspiration and the challenge!

Do the the things you think you can not do - White Rose Crafts

Good morning!
I am excited and sad about sharing my next project with you!  Excited because I absolutely loved working with these papers and sad because it is my final projects as guest designer for White Rose Crafts!

I chose a photo that I love but is hard to scrap because of the bright green trees and he is wearing blue and I did not want to make the photo black and white


On the back of the title card on the paper pack is another design perfect for those accent pieces (its the flowered one)One of the reasons I love this paper!


I fussy cut the flowers from one of the papers and used pop dots to add dimension




 I added a few flowers to the fussy cut piece and to the cluster - the lilies and the white rose are from White Rose crafts the rest are from my stash




 I covered the chipboard in clear gesso and then used my grey gelato and a little bit of water!

Thanks for stopping by and thank you to the team at White Rose!  I have really enjoyed guest designing for you!

Have a great day!

Cherish-White Rose Crafts LLC

Good morning!
I am back to share a another layout I created for my Guest Design  Team spot for White Rose Crafts LLC.

This months theme that the guest designers were asked to create with is fall/Halloween so I created a fall layout!


I know that these papers are really loved themed but I really enjoy using themed papers for something other than their original theme!



I used some flowers fro my stash and these wonderful metal roses from White Rose.  I altered them a bit with some orange paint 


I painted and misted the title piece from my stash and tied a piece of orange cord around the photo also from my stash!

Thanks for stopping by!

Thankful for Famlly - Eliabeth Craft Designs

Good morning!
We just celebrated our thanksgiving here in Canada and I believe I am truly blessed and have a lot to be thankful for.

The aspect of my life that I am most thankful for is my family.
We are a really close family and we help each other through good and bad.  We had a rough year with Jons health and every day I am thankful for him to be here and our boys that showed their loving and caring and strong demeanor that helped us both.  I am thankful for the laughter we share, the lessons we have learned, the moments we have and the life we have built together.



To create this layout I used the ModaScrap Wood Effect paper,

Here are the details:






I LOVE these background stamps!
