Hi there ladies,
Today I'm have a little ply with Couture Creations Inicutz Dies, Glamour Days,

Canvas Sketch

Finished Canvas

I've painted the timber (reverse side od canvas) edges of the canvas, and then covered the complete edges and inner canvas, with Couture Creations Pattern Paper,  Sew Jo

Using the CC Inticutz Glamour Days Dies, and bits of fabric, I have filled the frame

a)  G.D Dress form cut twice, one to make a dress on it

b)  G.D  Albert and Simonetta, cut twice, one wth PP to make Dress for Simonetta

c) Cut 2 tape image form  Sew Jo pattren paper and fix one to the background, and mount the other on a strip of chipboard, for the bottom of the outside frame

d)  G.D Sewing Kit Die, I've wrapped it a little twine around the machine bobbin

e)  G.D Sewing Kit Die, on the  Sewing Machine, I've doodled a little on it ,
and then coated with DM

f)   G.D Heritage Die, I've cut one for the top corner of the frame, and placed a flower on top

g)  G.D Project Tag Die, cut one in cardstock, and a little doodling, and add a sewing quote to it

Add a few other embellishments, and arrange everything to suit your style, and have fun

Explore with couture creations

Hello ladies,
 Today we are going to Explore, Couture Creations Who, What, Wear Embossing Folder, and a couple of Inticutz Dies from the new Glamour Days, and Momentos Lace range.
So let's go play.

Sketch I did for this project

and completed Layout

First I cut 4 strips (2 of each colour) of core'dinations cardstock,
 run 2 of the strips through the Who, What Wear, PRETTY IN PINK Embossing folder,
and then with the CC Sanding Block, gave them a rough sand.

Use 1 of  Monento Lace die CHANDLERS SET, as a boarder under my photo

Cutting out 2 of the Glamour Days Die; FLAMINGO, and then cut 2 more in pattern paper, and cut away the wings and beak, I placed these over the cardstock Flamingo,
on the front one I used Foam tape to lift him and then again on the wings

I also used the Momento Lace Die CAPPUCCINO, add a few CC Gem Stones, for a bit of bling

For my chipboard title, I ran it through the Who,What,Wear PRETTY IN PINK folder, using a brayer I added a light coat of glue to the raised surface, sprinkled some glitter over it, When dry I coated it with DM to give it a little shine.

To soften my page, I roughly sanded all four edges of my base cardstock, with CC Sanding Block

Now all our elements are done, arrange to suit your style, have fun.
