Love Story using Gums and Roses

Hi everyone,
Today I am sharing a set of layouts that I like to call Twin Pages. This is because they are very similar, usually mirrored or copied, but not identical. I find pages like this really simple and easy to create, they also go quite nicely on opposite pages in a scrapbook. I highly recommend giving “Twin Pages” a go if you are hoping to at getting a few pages beautiful layouts done quickly! I have used two of the Gumnut Garden papers from the Gums and Roses Collection because they already have a pretty frame printed on them which was easy to add too.

To create this project I have followed the steps below:

I hope I have inspired you with my twin pages using the Gums and Roses Collection today. I have loved using this beautiful collection! I also highly recommend to try out a set of twin pages when you are next in your craft room (or space) and I would love to see any that you create so please share them.
Stay Safe and Happy Crafting!

Beautiful – using 2Crafty Chipboard

Hi Everyone, I was so very excited to be asked to join the 2Crafty Chipboard Design Team – I would like to share with you my very first project using their wonderful chippies!!! so here is a layout I created using a selection of the beautiful products.

I wanted to create a layout using beautiful florals, flourishes and butterflies, so I chose these lovely Chipboards to add embellishment to my layout.

Once I created a base for my layout using a couple of beautiful papers, I then set to work painting my chosen chipboards with white paint, I didn’t want it to look to perfect, so it was quite quick and easy.

I love to add stitching to my projects, mainly on the papers but the long border chipboard has perfect little holes on it – so I had to add some colour coordinating stitching.

I love to also add height and dimension to my projects and this chipboard is perfect for doing that, once painted I started to shape some of them.

I then arranged all my fussy cut flowers and chipboard embellishments around my photo.

I shaped and layered up the beautiful Chipboard butterflies and added a pretty rhinestone to the centres.

I tucked some of the flourish & thistle Shrub chipboards in and around my photo to finish.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope I have inspired you to use chipboards on your projects, shape them and layer them to give height and dimension.

You can find lots more images and close up’s on my Instagram page: The Fussy Cutter

Today and Everyday using Gums and Roses

Hi Everyone,
Today I would like to share with you a quick and easy multi photo layout using the Gums and Roses Collection. I wanted to challenge myself to use more than two photos on a layout this month, so I have created this layout to achieve that goal. I have also made my own flowers for this first time that are featured on this layout. I love the 3D effect that these flowers have.

To create this layout I have followed the steps below:

  • Find the centre of the layout and make a cross
  • Adhere two landscape and portrait photos (all 11 x 10.2 cm) alternating to the centre
  • Fussy cut the “today and every day” element from Everyday Moments and foam tape to the centre of the layout
  • Fussy cut some of the small flower clusters from Fussy Cuts Eucalypt Posey and layer under the “today and every day” element
  • Glue Pink Flowers to the flower cluster in each corner

I hope I have inspired you to create a beautiful multi photo layout with the Gums and Roses Collection today.

  • Adhere Eucalypt Posey to cardstock
  • Take a photo with dimensions of 9.5 x 9.5 cm and frame with Kaisercard Arctic Weave Cardstock cut at 10 x 10 cm before adhering the the centre of the layout

I hope I have inspired you to create something beautiful using the gorgeous roses of the Gums and Roses collection and the Uniquolor Markers today.

Fancy Card and Box Set using Gums and Roses

Hi everyone,
I have a special project to share with you today! It is a set of 8 cards and a box to store them in too. I have used the stunning Gums and Roses Collection by Uniquely Creative. I just love all the beautiful flowers and gorgeous Australian wildlife to fussy cut in this collection. I thoroughly used just had to use it for this slightly larger project.

To create the cards in this project I have followed the steps below:

  • Ink the edges of each card and each cut piece with Pink Petal Ink.
    Adhere one larger cut piece to each prepared card. Foam tape the smaller pieces onto the front of the cards, slightly left of centre.
  • Glue a piece of CHEESECLOTH GAUZE to the front of each card.

To create the box in this project I have followed the steps below:

  • Take an old card board box, I have used one with dimensions 14 x 19 x 6 cm.
  • Cut FULL BLOOM to two 13.5 x 18.5 cm, two 5.5 x 13.5 cm and two 5.5 x 18.5 cm pieces. Cut KAISERCARD TUTU WEAVE CARDSTOCK to the same dimensions as FULL BLOOM. Adhere cut pieces on the inside and outside of the box as desired.
  • Using the same techniques described above, stamp the top of the box and then apply texture paste. Adhere a strip of lace along the top of the box and a strip from EVERYDAY MOMENTS on the bottom.
  • Build a cluster in the centre of the top of the box and the inside of the lid, with fussy cut elements, CREATIVE CUTS and cheesecloth gauze.

If you would like to see the video tutorial I have made for these fancy cards please click here, and for the box please click here.
I hope I have inspired you to create something beautiful using the gorgeous roses of the Gums and Roses collection today.
