August Reveal | ScrapMuch? | Stuck?! Sketches | Teresa Collins

Hi there!

Today I am sharing a few layouts created for my ScrapMuch? August first reveal.  I was given Project Pink and Collector's Edition, both from Teresa Collins Designs, to play with.  I am a sucker for the gorgeous gold foil on these collections and had so much fun playing with them. 

Be You  Tiful


I "borrowed" this photo of my friends daughter a while back, after seeing it on her Facebook wall.  I just couldn't resist, it is such a lovely photo of a beautiful girl.  I knew that the perfect collection would come along for it!


I did a bit of cheating and added some flowers from my stash, I couldn't  help myself this photo seemed to call for it and  I hardly get an opportunity to use them.  I used a circle punch to create the leaves in just the perfect size.


The sticker sheet that coordinates has lots of perfect  phrases, and the 'hello' was punches from a patterned paper.


I die cut the title with my Silhouette out of a scrap of black cardstock.


I added quite a few layers, including a vellum one.  I love layers even if they are subtle.


I punched several small circles in varying sizes from the gold foil paper and adhered them using both a glue pen and pop dots to mimic enamel dots.  An easy way to create a simple embellishment.

Supply List - patterned papers and stickers from Teresa Collins' Project Pink collection; Prima and misc. flowers; Fancy Pants doily; Colorbox ink; other: gold pen and black cardstock; American Crafts vellum.

You are Gold

 

This next page is a joint page for me to save a little time, which I was short on in July.  I combined this reveal with the August 1st sketch challenge reveal for Stuck?! Sketches. {Be sure to pop on over there for more inspiration and to find out how you can win some great prizes!}

I wanted to document this story, not sure why I haven't yet.  Often we take the dog and kid(s) for hikes (read leisurely strolls)  through  some nearby woods and trails.  Every single time, for our 28 years, my husband has picked me wildflowers on our walks.   Sometimes I end up with a good sized bouquet and other just a sprig or two.  Whatever catches his eye.  I think it is a sweet tradition.

Even though I still used lots of gold foil, I tried to keep this page on the more masculine side by using lots of graphic shapes and straighter lines.  I started my page by using the Tim Holtz Spritzer tool and a gold-ish Copic marker and spritzing through a starburst mask, that is supposed to span outward from my central focal area.  Then I added lots of Heidi Swapp gold Color Shine.


... more DIY foil dots.

This heart was had cut form a patterned paper.

A cluster of stickers and foil dots, using pop dots helps to add depth to stickers.

 I have scrapbooked this photo from our cruise before, but I had this photo printed and it looks great with this collection! 


I used a combination of die cut and punched words (from a patterned paper) for my title, I love that it is bold.


Again I used some flowers from my stash, and this time I also used enamel dots form my stash.

Thanks ScrapMuch? for giving me this super gorgeous collection to play with! I have more product left so you will be seeing more from me using these collections, but I really needed to pack my scrapbook room up for our recent move.

Thanks for visiting!
