Black White Pink and Purple Layouts

Black, White, Pink and Purple layouts from the Design Team ...

Hi everyone Corrina here

I am blessed with two very gorgeous daughters. This is a modelling shot taken of my eldest. The camera just loves her and always makes her look soooo way older than she is.

For this layout I have used Kaiser Ebony & Ivory Felicity paper. I highlighted some of the blossoms with indigo coloured ink and purple/blue kindyglitz. The title were some white alphabets that I had that I stamped over with the flower stamps then inked in places and kindy glitzed to match the paper.

I used some gorgeous Autumn Leaves clear stamps to create the layered flowers. These stamps (flower sketch and flower swirls) have the petals outlined several times, so it makes layering a breeze by simply cutting along a different set of petal lines each time. I highlighted each flower with the indigo ink and kindyglitz, and finished off with a flower cut from the black butterflies and flowers felt ribbon.

I used some more of this ribbon under the organza flower and finished off with some more butterflies (one atc card one and one felt one from the ribbon, highlighted with black pearls) and some leaf charms.

Materials Used:
cardstock & paper: coredinations nightfall black, Kaiser Ebony & Ivory Felicity

ta dah....done !

Hi guys, Keonie here Guest Designer for the month with my 2nd layout

On this LO I have used the gorgeously bold Teresa Collins Chic Bebe papers with white CS as the base and black CS as a photo mount.

Before mounting the photo onto the black however I did use the TC pink ledger paper and cut the mount with decorative scissors.

For the title and journaling spot i simply cut the frames that I wanted to use from the Chic Bebe mini tags paper and distressed them using the ink blending tool and black ink. You will see that I have done this distress technique right throughout the layout to help blend the papers and embellishments together.

On the journaling spot I have also added some pearls and rhinestones for a bit of girly bling. In the bottom left corner of the photos I created a little embellishment cluster using one of the pink felt hearts, pink canna lilly, and a fleur de lis charm that I altered using the ink blending tool and Cherry pink StazOn ink.

Up in the top right hand corner I used two different pattered papers from the Chic Bebe range and made a layered photo corner, the underneath one of which I cut using scallop decorative scissors and distressed the edges again with Black Soot ink and the blending tool. To add a bit of texture and bling in this spot I ran a line of dimensional magic around the edge of the pink and black polka dot paper, then sprinkled some gorgeous Diamond Dust all over. Sprinkle this rather generously then give it a few minutes to set. After that you can gently remove the excess with a cotton bud of soft paint brush making sure you sweep the excess away from your dimensional magic which will still need more time to dry.

Finally, to tie the whole LO together, I ruled a fine black outline using black gel pen and adhered two fleur de lis shapes to the top left hand corner of the LO. These were cropped from the Chic Bebe Fleur de Lis paper. Add a bit of dimensional magic to these and to the word “Bebe” in the title and you are done!
