An album of my Mum with Rambling Rose

Glad you could drop by and see what I have made with the stunning,
 Rambling Rose Papers, Dies and embellishments designed by Sue Smyth for Ultimate Crafts.
I found this Box that flips open to reveal a little album, I love how versatile this collection is and it suits the old black and white photos of my Mum. 
This is the front of the box, I have used lots of different patterned papers from the 12 x 12 Rambling Rose Paper Pack  

This is the box when its opened right up,
I have used the gorgeous Latticed Panel die to make a pocket, and the Tag and Corner Options die and cut the photo to fit on the tag.  

Don't be afraid to use a die to cut your photo you need to make sure it fits the die, if not try it on a copy of the photo first.  I have used the Stamp and Die set Count Your Life to cut the photo to fit on the tag. The butterfly is form Butterfly tag

This is the first opening of the album and I have fussy cut some flowers out of the paper and added some store bought rose buds and added the tiny leaves from the Mini Sprigs Die.  

Using the Bunting and Alpha Stamp set to add the banner in the corner and just cut out some of the tiny pictures from the paper.

This is the back of the book and love how Sue has designed these paper with frames that you can cut out and use. I have used the Latticed Tag die and cut it in half, to fit behind the photos. Fussy cut a few butterflies and flowers to embellish the page.

I have added some wooden beads for legs on the bottom of the box. 

I hope you enjoyed looking at my Album of Mum with Rambling Rose. 

Here is a picture of all the products I have used

White with 1

Can you believe its March already how quick is this year going.
So for my first challenge in March is 
So this is the colour we had to use and I have the perfect picture.
I am loving the Marker Maniacs pearlescent sprays and mica powers, I have mixed Orange Sherbet powder with Anna Griffin Texture Paste.  
Just had the new Ultimate Crafts Stencils arrive at Shelley's Land. So I thought I would use the Field of Flowers for the background, 
Here is a picture of the rest of the stencils available at Shelley's Land 
And here is the layout I have created, I love the shimmer on these sprays and they are so much better in person. I had some Imaginarium chipboard left over from a class that Natalie May taught a while back and painted them with Dylusions Black marble paint. Added some mica Marshmellow White to the black flowers for a nice shimmery finish.

Well its back to the craft room for a play with the new stencils and dies hope to get another challenge done very soon.
Cheers Shelley

I decided late last night to enter another challenge, I love how this is getting me back in the scrap room and creating. 
So here is my take on the A2Z February challenge 
Scrap My World is this months challenge.
And of course my hubby is my world.

So I have used some chipboard for the title and sprayed it with Dylusions Pomegranate Seed, and the flourishes in Dylusions Dirty Martini. 
I needed to change the colour of my Magnolia Flowers so they would match
 so I also sprayed them with  Dylusions Pomegranate Seed. If you click on the link you will see I sell them on Shelley's Land 
I love how it seem to give the flowers different colours and shine and all I had to so was spray them.
A couple of charms and embellishments and only fancy cutting for this one not a die cut in site. I did some fussy cutting and used Kaisercraft Cherry Tree Lane paper.
Hope you enjoyed looking at my layout.
Cheers Shelley

I decided to give a couple of challenges ago, so here is the next one.
   White ...with 1 Blue Jeans
So you can use the sketch if you want to so I decided I would.

I have had these Denim flowers floating around and thought this was perfect for this page. Adding some blue sequin trim over some pleated paper. 
I have used the new Mini Designer Template from Kaiser called Cherry Blossom using the Anna Griffin Embossing paste and while it was still wet sprinkled some Anna Griffin pigment powder Blue added a little bit of Tinby Designs Metallic Melts.

I have used Couture Creations Ornamental Affair Jasper Doily, Scrapmatts String Circles and a little flair.
I hope you like my take on White with ...1

Well its February 2017 already, where does the time go.
I haven't participated in a challenge for a long time, so I thought why not give it a go and make a lovley page layout at the same time. 

I have watched from the sidelines with this Kraft + Inspiration and Challenges and thought I would give it a go. I do love Kraft paper as you can add any colour you like to it and it just pops.

So here is my layout I created last night.
I have used the new Kaisercraft 12 x 12 Intricate tiles template, the round doily one bottom left.
Using some Anna Griffin Texture paste and spray some of the Dylusions ink Spray Vibrant Turquoise, Campso Teal and softened it with White Linen. 

You can purchase this from  Shelley's Land on Facebook 
I have used the lovley Couture Creations Sea Breeze Paper for the Leaves and the Banner and the sticker sheet.

I am loving the new dies from Paper Roses also available to order at Shelley's Land 
I have used 3 of them on this layout 
                                               Petunia Flower Set Metal Cutting Die 16623

I found in my stash of Chipboard the title and the heart is from 2 Crafty Chipboard.
I hope you like my layout
