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

Hi everyone this month the Creative EmbellishmentsΒ 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. πŸ˜€

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.

Capture the Moment – dt layout for Sketchabilities Sketch #107

Sketchabilities sketch #107 is now live! For my example for the challenge, I selected a picture of my oldest son, Taten. It was actually taken about 3 years ago, but it really seemed to suit this sketch. It was taken on the spur of the moment for no particular reason, but I love his joyful nature and wanted a photo that showed just an everyday moment. Here’s what I came up with:

Creative Embellishments Circles Background Stamp

CE Spider Web 6×6 panel
CE Capture the Moment set
CE Medium View Master Photo Slide
Heidi Swapp Vintage Chic papers and mini tags

Son, Spread Your Wings – dt layout for Sketchabilities

Sketch #106 at Sketchabilities is now live! For my example for the challenge, I decided to go with a neutral background and pops of blue, rusty orange and metallics to compliment my photo of my oldest son, Taten.

As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew I wanted to replace the circular elements and flourishes with Creative Embellishments gears and that fabulous steampunk clock and gear cluster I’ve been saving for the perfect page. Here’s what I came up with:

Spread Your Wings

Rise Above It – dt layout for SWAT drill #17

Creative Embellishments is sponsoring the SWAT Drill #17 which is to use something that’s been fussy cut on your project.Β  Fussy cutting (sometimes called detailed cutting or fancy cutting) is one of my all time favorite techniques! Anything goes; a layout, card, tag, altered project, art journal page, etc. as long as you incorporate this technique on your project. πŸ˜€

For my example, I combined this technique with the sketch and suggested journaling theme (the journey) at Once Upon a Sketch. Here’s what I came up with:

Rise Above It

Here’s a close up of the Creative Embellishments Steampunk Hot Air balloon I used on my page. I altered it by applying a coat of Tim Holtz distress paint, then going over it with distress stain in a slightly darker shade. I then highlighted select areas with Smooch Ink in “cape cod” which is a lovely shade of blue:
