Simply a Great life - CREATE - Teresa Collins

The June edition of CREATE is live.  You can download the magazine HERE and the free sketches HERE.  Today I want to show you the double page layout I made based on the sketch that was given to the Design Team.  I used some of the photos taken during our long weekend at Storms River Mouth in January.

Supply list: Cardstock:  American Craft; Patterned papers: Teresa Collins (Hello my name is); Title and leaf flourish:  Silhouette Cameo; Flowers:  Prima; Buttons, brads and sequins: Teresa Collins (Hello my name is); Other:  Texture paste, Crafters Workshop stencil.

I flipped the sketch we were given and I used a larger 5x7 photo on the left page.  Because my focal photo was larger I also adjusted all the patterned paper pieces to 1 inch longer than the sketch.  Here is some close ups:

I wanted to bring some blue into the colour scheme.  So I blocked my photos on blue cardstock and coloured my texture paste that I spread over the patterned paper with a little bit of acrylic paint.  I love the result.

I used a heart punch and punched out the two hearts from red cardstock.  I then applied some glossy accents to the hearts and let it dry.  

Please be inspired by this free magazine.  It has so much to offer.

  1. I'm a lover of double layouts, although I rarely do them myself anymore. This really tells a story of a wonderful mini break. Love the blue texture teamed with the burgundy. Great photos too :D

  7. Like Helen I love double layouts and also hardly ever do them anymore... I think for DT they just take too long... :/ First of all how wonderful to get a surprise like that and secondly what a stunning layout it is. I love the colours and the pop of blue on the background looks amazing. I love those papers and the photos are just awesome. I can so relate to your feeling about the see. I love that mag and I am off to download the new one. <3

  21. What an amazing layout! I love the texture - I thought it was enamel dots at first glance...that would have been A LOT of enamel dots. :)
    I'm totally scrap-lifting your idea.
