Thank You for Being You Card

"Thank You for Being You Card" by Julie Schinkel


Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing a card that I created using the soon to be released C'est La Vie Collection from Couture Creations, designed by Tina Higgins.



To start, take two cream square cards and cut the front in half diagonally. The second card should be cut in the opposite direction to the first. Adhere the backs of the card together. This is what should end up with.


Take Page 2A from the 12x12 paper pad, cut the top and bottom word strips off so you're left with the centre piece. Measure to the size of the front card flaps and trim down. Ink all edges (I've used Victorian Velvet) and adhere as shown.


Next, take Page 12A from the 12x12 paper pad. This will cover the inside of the card. Measure, trim, ink and adhere as shown.


Using that same paper, cut a piece to the width of the back of the card by approximately two inches. Ink and adhere using 1/4 inch double sided tape around the edge of two sides and the bottom. Adhere to the back panel to form a pocket.


Take Page 9A from the 6x6 paper pad and cut down so it fits into the pocket. Ink all edges.


Take that same panel, some rose gold mirror foil and the 'Thank You for Being You' hotfoil stamp and line up where you want the sentiment to be. Adhere with washi tape.


Gently flip and place on your GoPress'N Foil Machine. When heated, run it through your die cutting machine. This is the result. Adhere this panel to some cream cardstock.


Take the pale yellow butterfly from the ephemera pack and add some glue to the body and three dots on the wings. Once the glue is tacky, press some rose gold foil onto the glue. Ink and adhere the butterfly to the sentiment piece as shown. Add a row of three 3cm pink pearls to the top left and bottom right corners.


Take some cream seam binding ribbon and adhere across the centre of the pocket. Adhere some Diecut'N Bond Tape to some cream cardstock. Die cut two pieces using the Rosy Corner Decorative Die, remove the backing and press rose gold mirror foil onto each die cut piece. Adhere to opposite corners of the pocket. Take the ephemera piece that is the same as the panel picture, trim to fit and adhere in the centre. Make a double loop bow from seam binding ribbon, ink and adhere a rose on top of the bow as shown. To finish add a large pink pearl at the ends of the ribbon.


To embellish the front of the card, take some cream lace and adhere to each of the front panels as shown. Add some medium pink pearls - use a strong adhesive with these when adhering to lace to ensure they don't fall off.


Using the same piece of cardstock with Diecut'N Bond Tape, die cut a piece using the Classy Flower Decorative Die from The Ritz Collection. Remove backing and press rose gold mirror foil onto the die cut. Adhere onto a piece of muslin. Next, adhere a metal flower from the L'Aquarelle brass elements set. Ink three roses and adhere to form the main cluster. Make a double loop bow from some thin cream ribbon and adhere to the cluster to finish.

Life is Beautiful by Julie Schinkel

Hi everyone and a Happy New Year to you all. Here we are in 2018 already!

Today I'm sharing a layout that I have created with the soon to be released C'est La Vie Collection from Couture Creations, designed by Tina Higgins.




To start take the Page 4A from the 12x12 paper pad, this will be the base of the layout. Then take Page 8A and cut two strips - you'll want the pink flowers in the centre of your strips for the peek-a-boo. Then take Page 10A and cut the pink square to use as your photo mat.

Cut the base page along the panel lines as shown. Distress and ink with a light pink ink - I've used Tattered Rose. Cut your peek-a-boo panels from Page 8A and adhere to the back of the page.



 Distress and ink the photo mat piece and adhere to the centre of the page as shown.



To embellish, take some Ephemera, the Rosy Corner and Rosy Bouquet dies and a doily from the C'est La Vie collection. You will also need some scrap cardstock, pearls, gemstones, hotfoil and glitter glue.

Take the matching blue butterfly from the ephemera pack, trim down, ink the edges and add to the layout. Then add some Pink Blush pearls to each butterfly as shown. Die cut some dark pink/red cardstock using the Rosy Corner Decorative Die and place at the top left/bottom right of the photo cluster.

Take one of the 6cm Camden Cottage Roses and remove the bottom two petal layers. Ink with Victorian Velvet ink diluted with water and then add some Hot Pink Glitzin Glamour around the edge of each petal. Take two of the 3cm Camden Cottage Roses and repeat the process.

Adhere some Diecut'N Bond tape to some scrap cardstock and die cut two pieces using the Rosy Bouquet Decorative Die. The die should be cutting the taped side. Take some of the rose gold hotfoil and press onto the die cuts. Cut in half and add to the layout.

Distress and ink the edge of the layout base. Run a think strip of glue - a small area at a time - and allow to get tacky. Press some of the rose gold hotfoil onto the tacky glue. Repeat the process around the whole layout to form a foiled border.

Ink all ephemera pieces and arrange around the photo mat. Take one doily, cut into pieces and add to the cluster. Add ribbon, trim, pearls and bling as shown. Cover the photo and then splutter with diluted Victorian Velvet ink and white paint to finish.
