Sweet Heart – Creative Embellishments and CSI Guest project for Case 171

Hi everyone this month the Creative Embellishments team is playing along with the CSI cases and this is how I solved case #171.

Sweet Heart

Here is the case info:

From the evidence category, I used triangles and texture paste on my background. 😀

Here are some other close ups of the CE pieces I’ve layered on my page:

I love how CE pieces are so easy to alter and layer to create a story on your project.

2 layouts for Creative Embellishments – CSI 170 and Stuck?!

This month, Creative Embellishments is sponsoring both CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration and Stuck?! Sketches. Both challenge sites invited our team to guest design for them this month, so I actually have 2 layouts to share in the post. 😀

First up, I have my take on case 170 which I combined with the July 1st Stuck?! Sketch:

The Love of Football – Creative Embellishments and CSI case 169

I’m up on the Creative Embellishments blog and this month, we’re one of the sponsors for CSI – Color Stories Inspiration, so we got to try our hands at cracking some of their cases! Here’s how I solved case 169:

The Love of Football

 

From the evidence column, I went with stars using our Stars in My Universe frame, then stencils and sunburst rays, by creating my own stencil for the background. From the testimony column, I went with the family fun theme and used the word family in my journaling.

Some close ups of the chippies I altered:

Crazy 4 U – Creative Embellishments July Challenge + Sketchabilities 142

What’s better than an awesome Creative Embellishments Challenge? Combining it with a fabulous sketch by Sketchabilities! CE is sponsoring Sketch #142, so there are even more ways to win a GC to the Creative Embellishments store! 😀

For the Creative Embellishments July challenge, you just need to combine the inspiration photo with the added twist of adding something wood to your project (layout, card, tag, art journal page, altered piece, etc). This month, we were given the option to also combine the challenge with sketch #142. To check out what everyone came up with, be sure to check out this post on the CE blog: July Challenge

This was such a fun challenge for me! I love Karan’s sketches and am always inspired by them. 😀 I was further inspired by the colors, fence, and flowers from our inspo image. The blades of the windmill also reminded me of mesh, so I used drywall tape that I painted in the background of my design. CE stamps are so much fun to work with, so I used several of them to create my background which had started out as smooth white paper. I used watered down Distress stains for the base and Distress ink and Stazon ink with CE stamps to create my own background for this page. The chippies (flourish and fence) and drywall tape were altered using acrylic paint (both liquitex and Lumiere). For the twist, I left my CE wood veneer pieces bare so you can really see the intricate detailing on them, which they’re known for. 😀

Here’s what I came up with:
