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 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.

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
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!
