We R Memory Keepers Flower Punch Board & Inked Rose!!!

Hi everyone, I hope everyone is having a great week-end with beautiful weather! We are finally having sunshine here and I'm so happy to see it!!! WeR Memory Keepers was on HSN recently with all kinds of cool stuff, one of which is the Flower Punch Board. I had a layout shown and wanted to share it. I also had some other flowers shown as well as a bouquet that was even thrown to Andrew on air!!!! LOL!

Anyway, here is the layout that I created using one of the blooms and the beautiful "Inked Rose" collection that was also shown. This is our sweet little Kinsey Grace not long after she was born!

I made this bloom with the smallest size and just used 2 layers, the Pink Wash and Orange Wash. There is a little tool included that you use to curl the petals! I just layered them together and used a larger cream button with a smaller hot pink and topped with a pearl!

I cut out several butterflies from the paper and placed them on the layout as well.

Using cut out sections of the Fames paper worked well for placing cut out words from the paper too!

Using the flower punch board is super easy, there are easy to see marks and measurements for each size. Tells you what length and width you need for each one. You can layer them however you like, lots of layers or single and also several sizes. Here is a photo of the punch board.

Other Inked Rose products used:

 paper - Butterflies

Embossed Stickers

 paper - Floral

 paper - Frames

 paper - Pink Wash

paper - Orange Wash
 Wood Tag - Vintage frame

paper - Words

and you can find all of these HERE!

This is a super fun collection, and the flower punch board is amazing! I hope you feel inclined to try making some for yourself. And Inked Rose is great for cards and mini albums as well!!! Thanks so much for dropping by, I really appreciate it!

A Layout from WeR!!!

I have a layout to share today that I did using WeR Memory Keepers "Inked Rose" collection. There are some really fun patterns and colors in this collection. I used a sweet picture of Kinsey Grace for this one!

I used the "Hello" sentiment from the embossed stickers and put in on a frame I cut out from the frames patterned paper. I added a little gemstone to the center of the "e" and outlines the word with my pink Zig marker.

I used brads to attach my baker's twine to the strip of paper. I also cut out some butterflies from the patterned paper and folded them to use on the page.

I just tied the twine to the embossed tag to finish it off. This was a really quick and simple page, but I love the look of the background paper, the splattered dots look like I misted the paper!

New Card for WorldWin!!!

I did this card for WorldWin Papers in honor of Mother's Day! I wanted to show how beautifully the Petallics paper embosses.

I used a Couture Creations embossing folder, this one is "Exotic", the Petallics shows so crisp and clean when embossed! I used embellies and paper strips from the 3Birds Designs Graceful Season collection. I Love the colors!!!

Here you see the detail of the embossing!!! I love seeing how it looks when you get it out of the machine!!!!

This card was so simple and quick to make! I hope you try working with the Petallics line, there are many colors and it's a great paper!!!

Antique Theme with WOW!

This month's theme is "Antique". I don't have very many old photos that are really good quality and the ones that I do I have scrapped before, so I decided just to do a "Antique" inspired age. This photo is older, but not antique! This is our daughter when she was young. She has a baby of her own now!!!

I made my own custom frame by cutting a piece of WorldWin chipboard. I just used my craft knife and made a window type frame. I used several layers of Metallic Copper Ultra High powder on this.

I also used the "Simply Amazing" stamp set and made a cameo accent. I just used the Opaque Bright White powder on black cardstock. I used Earthtone Pepper for the frame of the cameo.

Here you can see part of the frame. I added some lace and blooms with some punched leaves also.

Here again you see part of the frame and a few little corner accents.

I used the "Vintage Wallpaper" stamp with Primary Ebony powder also. I love the look of this stamp, especially black!

Here you see another peek of the background stamp.

I inked most of the edges with black ink. I added a few extra embellies here and there, but liked the way it turned out. I'm not sure if this is really Antique, Vintage or what, but this is what I was inspired to do! I hope you join us this month and create something of your own!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
