1st Haircut – Creative Embellishments DT layout

I’ve been holding onto these photos of Christian getting his first haircut for a little while now, so I figured it’s about time I scrap them. 😀 For this page, I used several Creative Embellishments frames, wood veneers, and alphas. I painted all the chipboard pieces, but left the wood pieces as they are. I love the blend of black, white, and wood grain. 😀 I also stamped the border using CE rubber stamps and black acrylic paint and added background details using their chevron stamp as well. Here’s how my page turned out:

Spooky Halloween Tag – Creative Embellishments

I’ve always loved how Creative Embellishments makes it so easy to put together a quick card or tag without sacrificing dimension. For this quick an easy tag, I used 4 different background stamps. I used stazon ink with the text, crackle, and distressed grid stamps and layered them on the background. I then used the paint splat stamp to heat emboss some splatters for a little added color. I splattered some inks from Lindy’s Stamp Gang onto the base of my tag and misted it lightly with Tattered Angels Coffee Shop mist (my all time fave of their mists). Once I had that complete, I inked the edges with distressed ink. I altered by chippies with black, silver and white acrylic paint and heat embossed the title piece. Here’s how it all came together:
