Merry Christmas in July card

Hi everyone,
 It's a little chilly, so I thought I'd scrap these pics of my trip to Canada (quite a few years ago).  The Christmas Emporium papers were perfect.

I lightly sprayed some mists to give a snowy feeling to my page.

Cut one of each size of 'Evergreen Trees' and lightly mist for a bit of shimmer.

 Cut 'Simone's Style from white cardstock and attach towards lower edge of the page.  
Cut a large mat and layer a few strips of the striped paper beneath photos.

Adhere Evergreen Trees using 3D foam tape to add dimension on the smallest one.

Cut 'Christmas Wish' and use it as a journaling block.  Attach towards top right hand side.

Next I'd like to share with you, how I made my 'Christmas in July' card.  
Take a sheet of Core'dinations cardstock and trim to 12 inches X 9 inches.  Cut a 3 inch square from the two lower corners using a precision trimmer.  Score fold-lines, your finished card will be 6x6 inches, with the three flaps folded in.

Die-cut two 'Mistletoe' from green card-stock.

Cut one 5 1/2 X 2 3/4 from the header on the sentiments paper, 'Merry Christmas', two sentiment blocks and fussy-cut a foliage cluster.
Cut one 5 1/2 X 5 1/2, and four 5 1/2 X 2 3/4 from green patterned paper.

Cut two foliage pieces as shown.

On the outside of the left and right flap attach green patterned paper, and foliage pieces, highlight with red Glitzn'Glamour.  Attach fussy-cut foliage cluster to the outside of the bottom flap.

Attach patterned paper to the inside flaps as shown, adhere sentiment blocks.  Die-cut a 'Christmas Trinket' from Core'dinations glitter card-stock and attach as pictured.

Highlight holly berries using red Glitz'n Glamour.

And here's what it looks like when closed up.

Brrrr, it's cold outside so I decided to scrap!

Hi there, today I'd like to share with you a fun canvas project that I whipped up.

I used the Coteaux Curls die as a stencil with modelling paste, which I heated to cause it to rise and bubble.

Die-cut one Coteaux Curl frame and four of the accent.  Heat emboss the frame and accent pieces.

I sprayed a variety of mists over the canvas and set it aside to dry.

Adhere the die-cut pieces to your canvas, and use foam mounting tape to raise the photograph.

Colour flowers using mists and attach to the canvas.

Life is Beautiful Canvas

Hi there, today I thought I'd go crazy and add lots of die-cut layers to this canvas I created for my eldest daughter.  As you can see from the picture below I've used quite a few!

To create my background I applied modelling paste through a 'Rowena' diecut, and allowed it to dry.    I sprayed some mists, and once dry,stamped with Stazon ink using the gorgeous Hearts Ease stamp sets.

Most of the die-cuts were heat embossed which created a a lovely contrast to the other textures.

Die-cut two of Megan's Magic. trim centre section and cut in half diagonally, and heat emboss.

Colour flowers using mists and Glitz'n Glamour.

Cover a diecut heart in Hot Pink Glitz'n Glamour, allow to dry and repeat this process until fully covered

Lots of layers

Hi there, I'd like to share my layout with a quick tutorial using Amaryllis Ornamental Lace dies and the Hearts Ease collection of papers, stamps, dies, and embossing folders.

I embossed the Hearts Ease paper using Tied Together and inked it with a dauber.
Adhere papers, and stamp using Stazon ink.

I cut three sets of Vallicola, which I patterned matched across the lower part of the layout.

Cut Scrolled Tomentosa from purple cardstock, and cut as shown to create two intricate photo corners.

Cut Rowena and Simone's Style from white cardstock and layer as shown.  Create extra contrast by adding 'shadows' using mists or watercolours.

Add details with adhesive Gemstones and Pearls.
