Hello! Couture Creations Designer Jo Piccirilli here today sharing a layout that I created with some NEW dies and embossing folders from Couture Creations.
First, is the amazing Look Into My Window Die from the Secret Treasures Collection. This is great not only for your layouts but also makes the most stunning cards. Here is a close up of how I have used it on my page.
This is what the frame looks like after it has been run through your die cutting machine. By cutting off the bottom part and layering it with some Foam Mounting Tape I was able to create the windowsill. I then slid one side under my photo and popped my little girl embellishment behind the window.
I cut two copies of the new Lotus Filet Doily Die (Madeline Collection) from patterned paper and tucked them under my layout. To add a little bit of extra interest I used the end of my doily to create a curtain effect on my window frame. I have also inked around the edges.
I have tucked under my photo a piece of cardstock embossed with one of the new embossing folders from the Harmony Collection - Project Journal Cards. This folder is FANTASTIC! Not only does it give you a place to journal, but the top part of the folder has dates and months of the year.
Also in the Secret Treasures Collection are some awesome ornate shape dies. The one I have used here is the Ornate Rectangle Die. I love to cut these shapes in half and just tuck them under pieces of patterned paper to create a great layered effect. I have used this die at the top of the page to sit my banners and butterfly on and also just near the lacy doily die. This looks particularly good when using Core'dinations cardstock with a Sanding Block to show the border around the frame.
And finally, just to add a bit of extra interest and to create some more layers, I used my Circle Nesting Dies to cut a couple of circle frames to tuck under the patterned papers.
I have had so much fun playing with these new goodies! Thanks so much for letting me share!
