Jo made the team again.

Congratulations to Jo for making the design Team for Couture Creations again.

Here is a little bit more information on Jo taken from the Couture Creations blog.

I'm a stay at home mum to 3 children which are my biggest achievement in life. My best friend / husband is my biggest supporter.  I live in sunny Perth and have a love for anything paper craft related.  I think my love of paper started way back when I was a little girl and my dear nan used to write me lovely letters on pretty writing paper and I would always receive pretty writing sets as gifts from her.

I have been involved in scrapbooking / card making for about 7 years.

I currently teach scrapbooking classes at Crafty Capers a small scrapbooking / card making shop north of Perth and also a few scrapbooking classes from home.

I am extremely honoured to again be part of the Couture Creations Design Team and I am so looking forward to working with the other truly amazing designers.

Please visit my blog Joey's Scrap Corner and see what I have been creating.
onto Jo's project

Hi everyone! It's Jo and its my turn up on the blog today.

Today I have a layout to share using some of the new dies and the gorgeous new Sew Jo paper pads.

 I have used just plain white cardstock for my background but to add a little bit of interest I have 

misted with some black ink and also stamped 

using Chevron embossing folder from the Harmony 

When inking your embossing folder be sure that you use ink that won't stain.  I have used a chalk base ink as it just 
rinses clean under the tap.  The effect is soft and subtle.

I then went about layering my paper.  Over the top of my paper and running through the middle of my page is one of the new Ornamental Lace dies - Chandeliers Set from the Momento collection.

Also tucked underneath my papers is another of the Ornamental Lace Dies.  This is the Mirror Mirror die from the Madeline Collection.  I have cut this in half and used half at the top of my page and the other half just poking out from my flower cluster.

To give my paper flowers a little more "glam" I ran them through my embossing machine using the Small Dots embossing folder from the Harmony collection.  I also added some black flourishes using the Oscar die from the Sophia collection

I found some really cute little coloured paper bags at a $2 shop so I also embossed this with the Chevron embossing folder again from the Harmony collection.  I then sanded it back with my sanding block to give it a little more depth.

The little pocket holds a love note from my man on the night he proposed to me.  Soppy I know but kinda cute.

To finish my layout I got my trusty paper piercer  from my three piece tool set and pierced all around my papers and then hand stitched.

Thanks for stopping by.

Until next time - happy scrapping!
