Webster`s Pages ~CountryEstate~

Hi there!
Happy Monday! Wishing you all a wonderful and creative week!
I`m sharing today a layout using the gorgeous ~Country Estate~ Collection from Webster`s Pages....
I just love the Silhouette...It`s so elegant, isn`t it? The centers of the Fabric Flower were colored blue with a Copic Marker. And I added the cute Whimsey Rose as a final touch to the fabric flower.
The blue frame you see under the photo was stamped and then cut-out.
The ribbon I used is from the Country Estate Trim Card. I used Martha Stewart punch for the bird and my Cricut Expression for the bird cage! The butterfly is cut out from the pattern paper.
I wanted to remind you once again that I`m hosting The March Traditional Challenge at Inspire Me and I`d love to see your beautiful creations there! There are so many beautiful entries so far but I can`t wait to see more of your inspiring work! Hope to see you there!

Canvas layout

Hi there!
It`s canvas fun today! I`m nowadays busy with scrapping on canvas sheets and I must say I`m already  addicted ;-)
I used Webster`s Pages newest collections "Ladies & Gents" and "Country Estate" which I adore!!!
This is a simple canvas sheet and I sprayed four colors Glimmer Mist to achieve this background.
Before all the Glimmer Mist, I used Gesso to apply a layer and then I stamped over it with one of my Cuttlebug embossing folders....
The hearts and the butterflies are also cut out of canvas using a die-cut stencil....
...and here I used relief paste which I mixed with decorating sand....
I hope you enjoyed my layout!
Have a great day!

Trendsetter ~Webster`s Pages~

Hi there!
I`m sharing today a layout created especially for Webster`s Pages. I used the "Trendsetter" collection which is one of the newest collections of Webster`s Pages and like every other Webster`s collection I just adore it and I loved working with it!
The matting of the photo, the branches and the bird cage were cut out of the Trendsetter Vellum paper. The little frame on the bottom left side was cut out from the cute Petite Paperpads (Trendsetter/Ladies&Gents) and to be more exact this is from the Ladies & Gents collection.
This cute ;-) crying girl you see on the photo is my daughter Leanne. While we were in Bulgaria (last summer) we (the girls) shopped a lot. And this is one of the shops where we bought some clothes and shoes. Well, Leanne liked the shoes she is wearing on the photo and I bought them. She had to wear them immediately .... unfortunately, she had to fall twice before we went out of the shop and I captured the moment.....
Don`t you just love this flower. This is one of the Princess petals from the Trendsetter Collection....
Love that Whimsey Country bird......
...and two more close-ups ....
Well, this is all I can share today :-)...Hope you enjoyed it! 
Have a creative week!

My Creative Scrapbook ~Main Kit~

Hi there!
It`s a Reveal Day today at My Creative Scrapbook and as always I`ll begin with the Main Kit today. It is featuring Echo Park`s collection "For the record" and I had a blast creating these four layouts!
I cut all the strips out of the pattern paper and then I hand-stitched in the middle. When I was ready I glued them on the pattern paper and I cut the round shape of my layout. I added Stickles to the edges of the strips.
The butterflies were originally yellow but I used a black permanent marker to color them and then I added black Stickles...

Hope you all have a great weekend!
