Forever Layout with Rubber Buggy

Hello Rubber Buggy friends!   Today I'm sharing a layout featuring Prima's Lavender Frost. If you haven't been to the Rubber Buggy store recently you should stop in and see all of the new and beautiful Prima products!  I really love the Lavender Frost with it's soft colors and beautiful gold foiling. 

I started this layout by spraying the background with glimmer mist.  I found a color that was just a hint of pink because I wanted to keep it soft.  Then I simply tore a sheet of paper and adhered it to my background.  I die cut some lacy shapes and added them under the matting of the photo.  T finish it off I added some Melange Pepples, also available at the Rubber Buggy store.  I used Opal Magic yo paint them so they would coordinate with the layout.  To finish it off I added some coordinating flowers also from the Lavender Frost collection.

Now you can stop here and you have a perfectly beautiful layout, but I'm one of those scrappers who loves to take it a step further.  So for this I added some mini art stones, sequins and just a touch more spray.  Then to finish it I added some flat back pearls. 

I hope you will give some of these techniques a try and be sure to stop by the Rubber Buggy store and check out all the beautiful products.

Thank you for visiting

Fall Tags with Creative Embellishments

Hello friends!  Debbie with you today sharing a couple of Fall tags utilizing Creative Embellishments Autumn Leaves and Square Pieces.

Even though we have a few inches of snow on the ground where I am, it's technically still Fall.  We don't have any leaves left but who says I can't get my fix of Fall colors by creating something with Fall leaves and colors!

To alter the chipboard pieces I coated them with Versa Mark and then randomly sprinkled green and orange embossing powders over them.

After they were heat embossed I added some gold embossing powder to the edges.

To finish off these tags I added some gold eyelash string as well as gold ribbon from my stash.  I also added flowers and sequins, pumice stones.  I give them a quick spray with some color shine and added a sentiment.

Hope you enjoyed these quick tags and happy Thanksgiving!
