July Inspirations By Catherine Giguère


Hello 2 Crafty fans!

 Catherine here with you today to share two new layouts.


But before we start...

For this layout, I first did a textured background with modeling paste and stamps. I used Archival ink 'Potting Soil' to match my paper. I added a little bit of brown ink drops that I diluted with water.

I embossed my chipboards 'Tahnya's 11'' Border' and 'Frame Ingrid's' with oatmeal powder.
 I love this color!

I embossed my title 'Gorgeous' with Lindy's Embossing Powder Twilight Bronze Slate to make 
it stand out & then I added some texture with bronze microbeads.

2 Crafty products used:
- Gorgeous
- Frame Ingrid's
- Tahnya's 11'' Border

'This is my Life'

For this layout, I first made a textured background with modeling paste, doilies and stamps. 
I put drops of blue, green and aqua inks on my doilies and I  stamped with black 
Archival ink to add contrast. 

I embossed my title 'This is my Life' with Lindy's Embossing Powder Twilight Bronze Slate.

I left the other chipboards natural. I put my pieces in layers; each 'Decorative Rod Set 1' 
is under a piece of 'Element Set 1'.  I love the effect!
