Cutting the Cake | Artdeco Creations

#kerriegurney #artdecocreations #ultimatecrafts

Hi Everyone  it's Kerrie back with another wedding layout for Artdeco Creations Blog
I created this layout using Ultimate Crafts Rambling Rose Cardmakers Collection Pack
The Cardmakers pack is perfect for creating quick beautiful layouts as it has not only exclusive 12x12 paper designs including quad papers but it also has diecut embellishments and border strips.



to start I cut the center out of this piece of paper to create a decorative border for my layout and this way you you are not wasting your patterned paper and can use the middle section on another project


I cut some of the diecut pieces to tuck into my layers, this is a great way to use up embellishments that you like but the picture on them doesn't go with what you are working on



here is a look at my layers, I have started with a full quad piece and worked up my layers, distressing the edges of all my pieces. The doily peeking out is from the L'Aquarelle Die Cut Doily Set, I just flipped it over to use the white side rather than the blue side.


here is a closer look at my cluster of flowers, these are left overs from my last layout I always colour more than needed then you have them ready for your next project and as I want to do a few layouts from the wedding I know I will use them all up.



a closer look at all the layers, When I can get to my sewing machine I will add a stitched border.
I have kept the layout clean as I really wanted this gorgeous photo of Rachael and Jacob to shine

Moments Together | Celebr8

#kerriegurney #celebr8

Hi Everyone
Kerrie here with a layout I created using Celebr8's Summer Adventure Collection

Although this is a beachy summer collection it works perfectly for family photos and other occasions

I have used the papers along with some of the mattboard embellishments and the organza and tulle flower which i hit with the heat gun to create a flower with more character
The title is from another collection, not sure which one sorry.


I added some texture using the Seamless Borders Mask along with Couture Creations Anna Griffin Texture Paste and a sprinkle of glitter




I decided to leave the mattboard all natural as I liked the look and feel it gave my layout.

Bride + Bridesmaids | Artdeoco Creations

#kerriegurney
#artdecocreations #ultimatecrafts #couturecreationsaus

Hi Everyone
Kerrie here with a layout I created for the Artdeco Creations Blog 

As soon as I saw the photos from Rachael and Jacob's Wedding I knew they would be perfect for the Ultimate Crafts Rambling Rose Collection.
So I asked the beautiful Bride if I could please scrap some of them. I'm so happy she said yes which means yes there will be more wedding layouts coming from me.
I thought I would start with this gorgeous photo of  Rachael and her Bridesmaids first up with the Rambling Rose papers perfectly complimenting the girls  beautiful purple dresses



Firstly I folded the Corned Roses paper in half and drew on a half heart shape making sure my photo fitted inside the heart. I then cut it out


I distressed the edges of the heart and  then gave the heart a spritz with my Purple Shimmer Spray that I made up using the Couture Creations Anna Griffin Pigment. While still wet I scrunched the heart up into a ball and then unflurled it and set aside to dry


I have cut the border off my stencil which gives me more freedom with the stencil.
I don't like to have a solid edge to it


I then added some texture using the Couture Creations Anna Griffin Embossing Paste


While still wet sprinkle on some Couture Creations Anna Griffin Purple Glitter and set aside to dry


I then grabbed some paper flowers, wood shapes, feather sprig and muslin and spritz them all with my Purple Shimmer Spray. I dried them off a little using my heat tool and then set aside to dry off


I cut these three panels from the Reflections patterned paper and distressed the edges
I then layered all my pieces onto the Wood Panel Roses patterned paper. Starting off with these panels, then adding the crumpled heart and then some ephemera pieces from the ephemera pack


I cut some leaves from Cornered Roses patterned paper and then
I added a piece of muslin so it was coming out from under the photo and then layered on the flowers, feather sprig and wood shapes, finishing off with some pearls


to add some dimension I have used foam tape under some layers

Rambling Birds Card | Artdeco Creations

#kerriegurney #artdecocreations #ultimatecrafts #couturecreationsaus

Hi Everyone Kerrie here  back with another project for Artdeco Creations Blog
April brings lots of special birthdays for my family and friends so I thought I would get a headstart on creating some cards.
For this special card I have used the gorgeous Ultimate Crafts Rambling Rose 6x6 paper pad along with the ephemera packs and wood veneer shapes.
This is actually a quick card to create but looks like it has taken hours



to start off i mixed some of Couture Creations Anna Griffin Pink Pigment Powder with warm water in a spray bottle to create some shimmer spray


I then sprayed some flowers and the wood veneers and dried with my heat tool


I then decided the pick was too soft on the wood veneers and so I embossed them with gold embossing powder, sprinkling in some glitter while the embossing powder was molten to add some sparkle


I then distressed and inked all the edges of all my paper and ephemera pieces and layered them onto my card base. I added a splatter of shimmer spray to the background giving a little shimmer.


next up I layered on my flowers and wood veneers, I layered the larger gold wood veneer bird over the top of the bird on the ephemera tag adding some dimension to it. I also added a bird ephemera piece and layered the smaller wood veneer bird onto it.


as you can see it is super quick but oh so beautiful to create a card using the 6x6 paper pad and ephemera and wood veneer packs.

Say Cheese | Artdeco Creations

#kerriegurney #artdecocreations #ultimatecrafts #couturecreationsaus

Hi Everyone Kerrie here with a super quick layout I created for Artdeco Creations Blog using the newly released Ultimate Crafts Rambling Rose Collection
Rambling Rose is a gorgeous floral collection designed by Sue Smyth but Sue has very cleverly added some fabulous patterns on the B side of the papers that can be used for creating male layouts like the one I have created using photos from my favourite son's Contiki Tour of Europe.
(I only have one son so I always tell him he is my favourite son :))



I am not sure why but all my step by step photos were out of focus, so sorry no step by step photos but it is a simple layout with very simple techniques.
Also I added the black line as an after thought and I wish I hadn't I liked the layout much better without but hey I'm not pulling it apart and starting again :)


For my texture I used my Ultimate Crafts L'Aquarelle Rolling Mesh Stencil and Couture Creations Anna Griffin Embossing Paste. While still wet I sprinkled on some Couture Creations Mirror Gold Embossing Powder and heat set with my Couture Creations Heat Tool.
I didn't want full coverage so just sprinkle lightly, you can add more embossing powder if you like as you heat it, remember you can always add more you cannot take away.


 here is a closer look at the touch  texture coming out from under the patterned paper. I have added some fine jute string under the photos to add some more texture
I cut one of the Rambling Rose Wood Veneer Frames into two and added some brown ink and then sprayed them using Couture Creations Anna Griffin Gold Pigment Spray


For my title I again heat embossed using Couture Creations Mirror Gold Embossing Powder, this time sprinkling in some Couture Creations Copper Embossing Powder to give a variegated colour on the the title


I added some splats of Gold using Couture Creations Anna Griffin Gold Pigment which I previously  made into a spray. I have a spray for each colour of the pigments made up ready to use when I want them.

Once again I am sorry for the lack of step by step photos, I'm not sure why my camera decided not to work.

So Fun | Artdeco Creations

#kerriegurney  #artdecocreations #ultimatecrafts #couturecreations

Hi Everyone
Kerrie here with a layout I created for Artdeco Creations Blog using the newly released
Ultimate Crafts L'Aquarelle Collection.
I love this collection as it is fresh and fun with a touch of vintage and so perfect for this photo of my great niece and nephews



I used Couture Creations Anna Griffin Embossing Paste with the Rolling Mesh 6x6 Stencil to create my textured background, sprinkling on a little glitter and set aside to dry.
I then used some left over scraps of L'Aquarelle paper to create my layers, I have also used the barcode strip
Next I cut 2 x Floral Bunting and 1 x Watercolour Bloom dies from Ivory cardstock
I layered everything onto my base cardstock and then embellished using the Brass Frame, some Couture Flowers and Seam Binding Ribbon
Finishing off with some flicks of Pigment Spray and Crystal Glitzin' Glamour Glitter Glue to the flowers to add some sparkle
