Tresors de Luxe Christmas

Only five more days till Christmas!!! Seems like it gets here way too fast! I have another Christmas page to share today using some more gorgeous lace and blooms from Tresors de Luxe. The gold lace is just exquisite, it doesn't do justice in the photo!

I used Anna Griffin Inc. paper and embellishments. The lace and florals just add to the beauty, they compliment each other perfectly!!! I will list the products from both at the end of the post.

 Here you see some of the lace and a little white bloom. Also the pretty little red rose buds with touches of gold!

Here you can see a small piece of a spray that I tucked behind the white organza bloom. You see the Anna Griffin sentiment as well.

I used some leaves from another spray tucked in also. I love the white and gold and how it works so well against the same color papers!

Here are the products that I used:

Gold Venice Lace for Altered Art, Costumes, Lace Jewelry, Headbands, Sashes, Sewing, Crafts LA-189

White Fabric Flower Spray with White Pearls for Altered Art, Hair, Altered Couture approx. 11.50" PF-038

Pearl Centered White Organza Flowers for Millinery, Bridal, Costume Design, Crafting Approx. 2 inches across 6 pieces FL-015

Pack of 24 Red Fabric Shabby Chic Roses with "Splatter" of gold paint, Very Shabby Chic, 15mm across PF-020

Tresors Christmas Page!!!

Today I have a Christmas layout to share with you! This is a picture of our first English Bulldog, our sweet "speckles". I still miss her terribly. She was just like a kid, she loved Christmas!!! She always laid in this chair right next to the tree!!!

I used two different laces on this page! I used the beautiful gold layered on top of the beautiful ivory lace with a strip of multi-colored paper.

Both of these blooms were white, I used alcohol ink to color them! I used Ranger "lettuce" for the green, and "cranberry" for the red! They were so easy to take the color, it didn't take much at all, and I inked them from the back. I added a few of the little rosebuds with gold trim as well. The papers are Bo-Bunny and the alpha stickers are Simple Stories.

Here are the gorgeous Tresors products that I used!

Gold Venice Lace Trim, LA-144

Ivory Venice Floral and Leaf Pattern Lace, LA-180

Red Shabby Chic Roses with "Splatter" of gold paint, PF-020

Thank you so much for visiting! I hope you enjoyed my layout! I certainly had fun creating it with all of the Tresors goodies!!! Check back later for more inspiration!!!

Time for a Craft-Dee Bowz Blog Hop

It's time again for another Craft-Dee Bowz Blog Hop!!! We received some gorgeous ribbons to work with and some crystal accents that were so cute as well!! I decided to make a votive candle holder out of a mason jar!  I am the first stop on the hop, when you leave here you will go to Brenda's blog.

You can see the topper in this photo, I made a multiple loop  bow with the pretty purple and silver edged ribbon, then made a smaller double loop bow with the silver and placed it on top!

I made some dangles from silver and white beads with a purple star button on each end.

Here you can see that I took a piece of the purple and centered the smaller silver on top, then placed one of the gem snowflakes in the center. I cut the other snowflake apart and placed the pieces at six equal spots on the top edge of the purple ribbon.

I put a votive candle in the bottom of the jar. It looks really pretty when it's lit. Your next stop is Brenda's blog. 

Pretty and Pink for Tresors!

Here is a DT  card that I did  for Tresors de Luxe with one of my favorite color combinations! Pink and green! I used a piece of wider lace and a little pink floral spray! You can always find something gorgeous to highlight your projects in the Tresors shop!!!

Here you see a close-up of the little spray, it's details are pretty all by themselves! I added a sentiment sticker on top of a die cut with foam dots for dimension.

Here you can see detail of the lovely lace that I used for this card. I used floral die-cuts underneath the little spray.

This was a simple card to complete but I think it's looks striking! The colors work well and the gorgeous white lace just pops against the bright color of the spray! Below are the products that I chose:

White Venice Lace with Tear Drop Edging Embroidered Guipure Lace  LA-047

Fuchsia Shabby Chic Flower Embellishment with Pearl Beads FL-088

You can make something beautiful with just a few items with the large selection of beautiful things from Tresors de Luxe!!! I urge you to browse and shop to find something to use on your next project too!!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Miracle Layout

Today I wanted to share a layout of our Granddaughter right after she was born! She is almost five months old now, time is passing too fast! I wanted a soft look so I kept the colors neutral with pink and a little bit of green.

Here are some close-ups of the details. I used the Poetry folder from the Elegance collection on a soft pink cardstock and then inked over it with white. It just suits the sweet photo!

I made the blooms from the Daisy Nesting Die! I used some chalk ink, Glitzin Glamour and Pearls!!!

Start by snipping into every second petal as shown below:

 Trim each side of the double petals to look like the one below, ink across each section and in the center.

Add a pearl and Glitzin Glamour around it to finish off the bloom! 

Couture Creations products used:
Nesting Dies, Scallop Ovals CO723045

Nesting Dies, Daisy CO723217

Style by Year!!!!

 I thought it would be neat to go back and post pics of layouts that I have done over the past years. So I went back to my gallery and grabbed some from November of each year!!!

I got all of these from my gallery. I started with 2005. This is our oldest ds, and this was when I was addicted to Basic Grey!! The big alphas, and the picture was scanned, and really crooked! LOL!

Layout from November 2005

Layout from November 2006
Hmmm, this one I guess I was just into black and pink!!!! Me with our kids!!! Pretty basic page!

November 2007
More Basic Grey!!! I did add a few blooms and ribbon this time!!!

November 2008
Okay, I guess trying something different, strange colors and some white space here!!! This was our precious baby girl "Speckles".

November 2009
Youngest ds and dd. This was during my time with MyCreativeScrapbook. I still kinda like the black and blue!!!!

November 2010
Blue and Brown, still pretty basic as far as style.

November 2011
Brighter colors, more relaxed style. I'm liking this still!! LOL!

November 2012
And this time last year, Websters Pages!!! Still seeing blue here! LOL! And I don't even consider that one of my favorite colors!!!

Now 2013, here is a favorite page from the present!!! This is a CC page that I've already shared, but it represents now!!!

This was a fun journey, I would love to see some others do this as well, so interesting to see how our styles evolve and change, or at least some of us! Mine is still pretty much the same really!!! Thanks so much for dropping by! I always appreciate your visits!!!!
