Captured - CREATE Magazine - July Edition

Hi all, here are two pages that was published in the July edition of the CREATE magazine.  Remember this magazine is free for download HERE and you can download the free sketches HERE.  The two pages that I am showing you today are based on the colour challenge.  This was the inspiration photo that we used:

For the first page I used my Silhouette Cameo extensively to create a modern layout:
Supply list:  Cardstock: American Craft; Patterned papers:  Jillibean Soup, Pink Paislee; Chipboard wildflowers:  Blue Fern Studios; Arrows: Freckled Fawn; Die cut background, "snap happy" card and title: Silhouette Cameo; Brad; Making Memories.

Using a background die cut in this manner allows you to use up a lot of the scraps you have in your stash.  I used the Brush Script MT font to create my title and cut it in two colours to layer.  I left the wildflowers chipboard raw because the layout is already so colourful.

I love this background die cut.  It always turns out looking wonderful.

The second page I made has a much more "old fashioned" feel to it.  The photo has been sitting on my desk for a few years and was taken at the little ones creche and has an "old fashioned" feel to it.  
Supply list:  Cardstock: American Craft; Patterned papers: Websters (All About Me); Flowers: Bo Bunny and Websters; Brads: Bo Bunny; Cherries: K&Co; "Blessings" title: Blue Fern Studios.

I am also one of those scrappers that love the look of Websters papers but I find it incredibly hard to use the papers because they are so busy.  These papers went with the photo perfectly and I decided to cut it up and colour block the page.
I mounted the photo on blue and red cardstock.  I painted the Blue Fern Studio title with red paint and then covered it in Glossy Accents.  I am quite happy with how the page turned out.

Thank you for visiting and be sure to check out the Magazine for some stunning inspiration.

  9. Wow, I love how you made a sort of mosaic with the Websters papers. Usually I see people use those just as backgrounds, so I felt like your making a mosaic with them was a really fresh idea on how to use ornate a Websters Pages papers.
