Anna's Craft Cupboard - Seaside 'Capture' layout

Hello there!
I'm back today sharing my third & 
final project for Anna's Craft Cupboard 
for the month of September 
working with the 49 & Market - Seaside

The papers are all FANTASTIC &
 really hard to chose which side
 you like more to work with... lol!
 & then you get these gorgeous laser cutouts
 & makes it is so easy to create 
a beautiful page & thats 
exactly what I did with this page....

With the beautiful green & blue tones 
I started with Seaside - Cottage paper,
 then adding stamping using Kaisercraft - hessian
 & numbers from the Studio Light Grunge stamp set... 
 (yep! lol! didn't release that I had created
 a similar stamping background 
as my first layout till 
I had finished & looked at them both,
 but Ok with that! ) 
 NEXT: adding a bit more colour to the
 background using Tim Holtz - Distress Lucky Clover
 & Peacock feather Oxides... 
then it was onto adding some paper layers,
 Laser cut outs &
49 & Market Sky Country Bloom flowers.... 
finalizing my page with black splatters, 
some Prima Marketing - Art stones
 & a 2 Crafty Chipboard 'Capture' 
mini word for my title, 
inking the word capture with the 
Tim Holtz - Distress Peacock feather Oxide!!!!

Thanks for stopping by & taking a look....

Anna's Craft Cupboard - 49 & Market Ethereal layered Embellishment layout including video tutorial

Hello there everyone!
Rach back with you today, 
sharing my second project for
working with the ever so gorgeous
49 & Market - Seaside 12x12 Mini pack + 
 49 & Market Ethereal layered embellishment set


I actually have to admit I mostly
 used the 49 & Market Ethereal layered embellishment set,
again because of the packing having 
a lovely design that you can 
incorporate into your project....  
You may also notice that this 
layout has no title!!
 I am a huge fan of having 
titles to my layouts, 
I wanting to challenge myself 
to see if i could pull it off by
 creating a layout without one??
 AND I am really happy with the end result!!

The best part is that I have created a step by step video tutorial for you all to watch how this came together.... 
please click this link

  & I hopefully you are inspired in some way!!!!

I do have one more layout to share
 & will be back to do so soon!

Anna's Craft Cupboard 49 & Market Seaside 'Sanctuary 2019' layout

Hello there everyone!
Today sharing my first project for Anna's Craft Cupboard 
this month working with the 
and YES! 
it is a beachy themed collection, 
but you could most certainly create 
any beautiful project &
 laser cut outs in this pack are just fabulous....

1 of the things I enjoy about 
49& Market products 
is even the packaging 
has some sort of design on it so,
 you can also use in any project... 
 AND that's exactly what I did with
 my first project, 
a layout featuring myself  'Sanctuary 2019'

I started with using the backing 
of the Seaside packaging sheet,
 the blue & white paper,
 tore a strip from the top &
 the bottom & then attached this 
to white cardstock... 
Next: added some stamping using Kaisercraft Dictionary,
 numbers from the Studio Light Grunge stamp set
 and the from Colour Blast - 'Follow your dreams' 
kind heart stamp set...

Next: I added some paper layers using the 'Sand dunes paper'
 then attached my photo using cardboard for dimension...
 then added some chessecloth, 
TIP: Chesse cloth is a cheap &
 great product to add to any project ....
 Next adding some of the beautiful laser cut out pieces 
including the white frame 
that is sitting on my photo... 
49 & Market flowers and a few leaves, 
using foam tape to attach them all... 
 another little TIP: The leaves 
I created by first stamping onto white card,
 fussy cutting them out, 
then adding a little colour to the 
leaves with tim Holtz distress crayons...
 Finishing off with some of 
my favourite chipboard, 2 Crafty Chipboard Sanctuary,
 2019 and Fishing net bits....

The 49 & Market - Seaside 12x12 Mini pack is such a beautiful Collection and you can view & purchase it ----> HERE
