Watch or Scrap-Along with me as I create this cute layout using my products that I create exclusively for my store Scrapbook Fantasies. It’s Live, it’s uncut and at times it’s a bit wild whilst I am creating and my scribe (aka my husband Quentin) and I chat about life, our business, our kids and why we do what we do.

Couture Creations DT Reveal | Special Foiled Butterfly Layout

Hi everyone and welcome to my post today where I am going to be sharing with you a lovely layout I have created that features two of everyone’s favourite things – Butterflies & Foil.

I have started my layout by die-cutting a huge pile of Butterflies from Diecut’N Bond that I had folded over on itself so that I had double-sided sticky Butterflies. Due to the intricate nature of the Die, I used this was a slow process – and if I am truly honest Naomi-Jon cut them for me and she wasn’t very happy about the mess or the difficulty in getting the little sticky bits out of the Die.

I then stuck the Butterflies on the background before using scraps of foil (I have a whole tub of them) to foil them randomly. I find that choosing a foil colour (Gold Iridescent Squares) as the finishing colour helps – and this finishing only involves burnishing the foil onto the Butterflies so that any gaps of adhesive are coated.

I sprayed and flicked some mists over the Foiled Butterflies before adding the photograph, embellishments and the “Special” Title I die-cut from Gold Mirror Foil Board using one of the new Delightful Sentiments Cut, Foil & Emboss Dies – Yes I used a Foil Die as a Cutting Die, because they produce the most beautiful embossed finishes.

Couture Creations DT Reveal | Scoring Board Rosette Canvas Part 1

Hi and welcome to my post today where I am going to share with you how I create Rosette Flowers using my Couture Creations Scoring Board, some paper scraps and Dimensional Magic.

I start with paper strips cut using these measurements for the three sizes of Rosettes I like to create:
9 1/4″ x 3/4″
9 3/4″ x 1″
10 1/4″ x 1 1/4″

I have discovered the hard way that if you make your paper strips too short or too wide that they just don’t work, or look nice either.

I score the strips with my Scoring Board and the included stylus/folder every 1/4″ along the length, which needs to be an odd number of spaces so that the Rosettes can be glued together with enough strength not to fall apart.

On the topic of not falling apart – is what to adhere the Rosettes with – Dimensional Magic (nothing holds as well with the springy forces at play with Rosettes).

I have a short demonstration Video for you showing all of the above steps and more, sorry there is no talking as I was at work and Amelia-Ann was giving me corrective instructions because 4-year-olds know everything.

You are probably wondering what I am going to do with a big pile of Rosettes made with beautiful Butterfly Garden papers…….you will have to return in a couple of days to find out.
