June Inspirations by Catherine Giguère
with VIDEO Tutorial

'Cherished Moments'

Hello 2 Crafty fans!

 Catherine here with you today to share two new layouts.

But before we start...

For this layout, I used earth tones. I first made a textured background with modeling paste, doilies and stamps. I put green and brown ink drops that I diluted with water. On my doilies and used
brown ink for my stamping to match the paper.  

I left all my chipboards natural to match my design and add a lot of green, brown and
 white flowers cascading under my picture. 

2 Crafty products used:
- Fancy Damask
- Cherished Moments

'Amaze Yourself' 

For my second layout, I did a very feminine one. I did a background with textured 
(modeling paste and doilies) and applied purple and gold ink on it. 

I embossed my chipboards 'Sammi's Swirls' with gold  (Lindy's Stamp Gang 'King Midas Gold') 
and black powder ( Stampendous 'Aged Black') to make them stand out.

I embossed my title with Lindy's Stamg Gang 'Midnight Violet' and add some
 'King Midas Gold' powder to make it stand out a little bit more.

I made a video tutorial to show you my process:

I hope that I inspired you, have a nice crafty day!
