Life is Beautiful

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.
