I want to thank Couture Creations and the amazing Kerrie (our DT coordinator) for everything these past months. I have enjoyed working all the amazing products and have loved getting to know this fantastic team! I also thank Haylie Jo, owner of CSW Distributors (the US distributor of Couture Creations products). Haylie and I have worked together off and on since 2008, and I am sure we will again one day! The gals on that team are all friends and I am sure we will "see" each other often!
Here are a few of my favorite projects using Couture Creations products!
I used the NEW Dreamboat 3-in-1 Doilies Stamps to create my background. It is stamped and embossed with white embossing powder.
This is a fun ink and chalk technique. See how to make the card HERE. I used Rectangle Nesting Dies, Scallop Rectangle Nesting Dies, Roses Nesting Dies, and the Passion Embossing Folder.
This was a great way to use some Graphic 45 papers and give the card a French flair! HERE is the tutorial for this one. I used Rectangle Nesting Dies, Scallop Rectangle Nesting Dies, Ivy Doily Die, Key to My Heart Die, and the Large Hepburn Embossing Folder.
This one used the NEW Endless Embossing Folder and a "reverse emboss" technique. See the tutorial HERE. I also used Victorian Rectangles Nesting Dies.
It is so hard to say good-bye to Really Reasonable Ribbon. I started as a guest designer in 2010 and again in 2011, and then joined the team in 2011. I have loved every minute of creating with the fantastic ribbons. Bonnie (Mrs. RRR) has been a friend, supporter, and mentor to me over the past few years. I have enjoyed the girls on the team so much and will miss their chatter and "high jinks"! And yes, the ribbon is "really reasonable"!
Here are a few of my favorite RRR creations! (It was hard to choose! I love ribbon and use it on pretty much EVERY project!)
I love the contrast between the dyed seam binding and the pleated satin.
I love this pink and brown combo, especially the flower I made with the lace!
I like to combine ribbon with twine. This is one of my favorite project with that technique.
Here is one of my stacked bows. (Which are now easier to make with the Bow-it-All Tool.) I also added pleated ribbon and some twine.
Here is a stacked bow with a lace flower. I am not much of a sewer, but I can do a running stitch which is all that is required to make the flower!
This is one of my favorites because of the lace and velvet ribbon! And the satin bow! The cream and tan colors remind me of sugar cookies. (grin)
Another stacked bow, this time in pink! With a button and some twine.
I created a rolled rose with some crinkle ribbon and some satin ribbon. This is an easy technique if you use those big Gluber glue dots.
Thank you to these fantastic teams for having me as part of the creative team! I am sad to go, but I know that for everything there is a season.
