September Creations With Anita Bownds

September 7, 2015
Hi there,
Happy Monday to you all…today I’m sharing some creations using the 3 new collections
Home for Christmas, Silver bells and Generations
“May your days be merry and bright” card By Anita Bownds
I’m starting off my post with a bit of Christmas inspiration. I thought this would be a great idea for all those little Christmas parties,make little Christmas toppers for cupcakes it’s fun and super easy ..
 Bamboo skewers, collectables and mini blooms. I always love to give cards to family and friends on this card I wanted to use the new template with the holly on it on black cardstock with the lovely reds and greens.
As you can see I absolutely adore the leaf die , I love adding die cut leaves to my cards
 I think a great tip for using stickers on your cards if the white around the image is not working for you try fussy cutting around it ..I’ve done it with the pine branches on this card

“Holiday Fun” Layout By Anita Bownds
Now this layout I used the Silver Bells collection. So so lovely I love the pinks and blues tones , oh and the 6×6 paper pad has silver foiled papers. They are absolutely lovely.. For this layout I used the blues and whites.
The collectables in this collection are super fun to layer..
Another fun tip if you like a bit of dimension with your die cuts, glue your patterned paper to some cereal box or thick cardstock before you die cut! It really helps pop that die cut off the page!

“Family Moments” mini Album by Anita Bownds
Using some leftover bits off creating with the Generations collection, I’ve created a mini album
 I used the collectables for my title and kept to the same colours though out the album
I’ve used the smaller Polaroid die adding the little photo in the middle like a frame
You can make these minis for a gift to give to family or friends
Our Easter holiday was super fun!!
I got to spend some quality time with my daughter Melissa before she went back to university.

“Grandfather” layout By Anita Bownds 
I used the Generations collection with this layout I loved the wood grain. It matched my photo perfectly!
 I used another bit of patterned paper for a border with the hints of green.
To bring in more colour to match my layers under my photo
 I layered lots of little collectables and added a few star stickers along with a few flicks of white mist.
