“Couture Creations 2015 Design Team Audition”

I'm sharing several projects and layouts that I have created using dies and embossing folders, as part of my application for the Couture Creations Designs Team. 

My first project is this gorgeous wreath that I created as part of my design commitments for PaperHaus. Nearly all those flowers are made by hand using dies (with just a few pre-made paper flowers to fill in the small gaps). Yes, the leaves, doilies and butterfly have all been created with a variety of dies. 

My second project is a layout I created using Marion Smith's "Mad Tea Party" paper range. This was the first project I created as part of my Creative Inspiration Paints Design Team commitments. 

A quick and cute Christmas card that I created as part of my design team commitments for Kaisercraft. 

Another layout that I created as part of my Paperhaus design commitments.The flowers and leaves have all been created with dies.  

Another cute card - All You Need Is Love. Yes, I even included curtains. :)

One of my favourite projects - my "Believe" wall plaque. I created this as part of my Imaginarium Designs DT commitments. I have used Webster's "Postcards To Paris 2" paper range. 

Another home decor project. Two altered frames created as part of my Imaginarium Designs DT commitments (I created one for each daughter). This project included many levels of die cuts and chipboard to achieve the finished product. 

A quick and simple card with an embossed background, all in monochromatic white, with a dash of silver for the title. 

Here is a layout I created as part of a Blog Hop for both Imaginarium Designs and Couture Creations. I have used both embossing folders and dies for this project.

Another favourite project - a quick and simple treat/gift bag. This was created as part of my Paperhaus Design Team commitments. I love creating these as there are so many colour combinations to choose from, and the finished product just looks so sweet. 

Finally, my butterfly cupcake and stand. I created this project as part of my Kaisercraft Design Team application. The cupcake wrapper has been created from a die, and decorated with gemstones. 
Thank-you for stopping by and joining me today. It's been a wonderful trip down memory lane, enjoying projects that I have created with a love, and for many of my Design Teams. 
Hmmm...maybe I should do this more often? We tend to become so focused on creating new projects, that sometimes we forget to take the time to enjoy those projects that we have already created. And guess what? Most of these projects still take pride of place in many of my display cabinets so I can enjoy them every day. :)
Cheers and hugs, xxx
