October Inspiration With Debbie

Hi everyone, Debbie here with you today to share my layouts.  
I have two layouts to share with you using the new Memories paper collection. Michelle has done it again, creating a beautiful paper collection. I want to show you how versatile this collection is. One layout with deep rich colors and another layout, bright and summery.

I love creating Vintage layouts.  The new Memories paper collection is perfect for such layouts.  I used the Nature's Novel paper for my background. I was drawn to the fall colors and gorgeous details on the paper.  I layered under the photo with Chronicles (side B) and Grand Sequel (side B).   I added some subtle inking to the background paper and some random paint splatters.

To the left of my photo I used the Dashwood Bouquet chipboard.  I covered it with some brown stain and  embossed with a mixture of Ginger and Garnet Imagine Ink Embossing Powders. Tucked beneath the photo is the Floral Lattice Bits chipboard embossed with a mixture of Ginger, Garnet and Magenta Embossing Powders.  To add some texture I placed some colorful micro beads randomly on the chipboard.

I embossed the small Swirled Floral corner with Ginger and Garnet Embossing Powders.  I cut the chipboard into two pieces and placed the larger piece to the right side of the photo and tucked the smaller piece down at the bottom of the photo.  I tucked in some flowers from the new Late Winter and Dark Tropics Lilies. I love the new lilies!!!

I used some brown stain on my title and added some embossing with Ginger and Garnet.  Love the aged look to the title.

Chipboard:  Swirled Floral Corner, Dashwood Bouquet, Floral Lattice Bits, Blushing Beauty
Embossing Powders:  Ginger, Garnet, MAgenta
Flowers:  Late Winter Lilies, Dark Tropic Lilies

My second layout is very summery and tropical.
I used the side B of the Tale of Treasures papers.  I did some light misting with purple and added some stamping with the Shabby Edges stamp and some random splatters of black ink. I chose not to add any additional layers under my photo, as I used the new Janie's Frame Chipboard under my photo.  I embossed it with a mixture of Iris and Lilac embossing powders and added some micro beads for texture.

Tucked beneath the new Dark Tropic Lilies are Berry Stem Chipboard pieces embossed with Ebony embossing powder and lightly coated with black micro beads.

The title is part of Brilliant, Amazing, Dazzling,  embossed with a mixture of Ebony and Lilac Embossing Powders.

Paper:  Memories Tale of Treasures
Chipboard:  Janie's Frame, Amazing, Berry Stems
Embossing Powders:  Ebony, Lilac, Iris
Flowers:  Attic Charm Daisies, Courtship Blooms, Dark Tropic Lilies

My final layout was created for the October Sketch Challenge.
I used the Glee (side B) paper from the Serendipity collection for the background, and the Adobe paper from the Timeless collection to layer under my photo.  Some random stamping on the background along with some Olive inking.

Under my photo is the Ironwork Arch chipboard, stained brown and covered with micro beads and Fuchsia embossing powders.  I used some Courtship Blooms and Attic Charm Daisies.

Love the cluster of bright and beautiful Attic Charm Daises and Courtship Blooms.  I added a Royal Monarch Butterfly, stained brown and embossed with Fuchsia and Sage embossing powders.

The title piece was stained brown and lightly embossed with Fuchsia embossing powder.

The Mémoires Collection by Karine


It's my turn, today, to share with you my October layouts created with the brand new Mémoires collection. The papers are just gorgeous!

The end of a Perfect Day

For this layout, I used the Tale of Treasures paper as my background. After I primed it with clear gesso, I used a stencil with modeling paste. I added a bit of blue mist with a brush. 

To add more interest to the background, I used the Grungy Grid stamp with black ink. I also added another stamp with text. 

Behind my photo cluster, I used the Circle Groupe chipboards, which I embossed with Sand & Sea Imagine Ink embossing powder. It matches the background beautifully. 

Under my picture, I used the Calling Cards paper to mat. 

I used the Photographic Record paper to die cut a doily to add to both my clusters. I also added some flowers and wire thread to embellish.

My title piece, The End of a Perfect Day, is also embossed with Sand & Sea Imagine Ink embossing powder.

Life is Full of Surprises

When I saw this beautiful paper, called Chronicles, in the collection, I immediately thought of this picture of my daughter. I primed it with clear gesso and, as usual, used some modeling paste through a stencil to add texture.

I also added two mists colors to the background: one in a red-burgundy shade that matches the background and another in a golden yellow tone. I used both the Grungy Grid and the Forever stamps to add interest to my background. 

To mat my picture, I used a piece of the Grand Sequel paper and a card from the Calling Cards paper. I placed that over the largest Frilly Hearts chipboard which I embossed with Oatmeal Imagine Ink embossing powder. I just love how it mat my picture with such feminine details.

To embellish, I used some Attic Charm Daisies (you can see it better in the next picture), some Seaside Lilies and some Harvest Lilies. Did I mentioned how I love Blue Fern Studios flowers?

In my flower cluster, I used two keys from the Vintage Keys set. I used again the Oatmeal Imagine Ink embossing powder. 

My title piece, the Life is Full of Surprises chipboard, is embossed with Ginger Imagine Ink embossing powder.


For my last layout, I started with the Nature's Novel paper. I love the earth tones of this one. 

I used my new favorite stamp: the Crackle Texture stamp, here and there, on the background. A few shades of ink (aqua, brown and yellow) here and there, and background was done. 

I had this idea of a torn band of paper going diagonally on my layout. I used the Photographic Record paper to do so. I tucked some pieces of the Turkish Bits chipboards set behind the paper, to add interest. I embossed the chipboards with Mushroom Imagine Ink embossing powder and while it was still hot, I sprinkled some Sand & Sea Imagine Ink embossing powder over it. I believe this powder will quickly become my favorite!

For my main embellishment cluster, I chose the Seaside Flourish chipboard, which I cut apart to keep just the flourish and the flowers. You can see, in the picture above, How I cut the anchor and the two stars and keeps everything else.

I used brown Ink to color this chipboard and then, I dry brushed some white gesso to make it stand out a bit more. 

In this cluster, I used a lot of Blue Fern Studios flowers: little Courtship Blooms, some Spring Lilies and, of course, the beautiful Mémoires Blooms. 

I used those flowers again in the two other clusters I made.

I mated my picture with the Calling Cards paper. My title piece comes from the Amis, Ensemble, Complices set. I treated it with the same steps as I did with the other chipboards on this layout. 

I hope my layouts inspires you to dig in this BEAUTIFUL new collection.

Have a great day,
