Couture Creations 2016/17 Design Team Audition

Today I’d like to share with you a few projects selected for the Couture Creations/Ultimate Crafts Design Team call. I’ve been creating with these wonderful products over the past twelve months as part of their in-house creative team and it has been awesome to work with brand new products before they are released to the public.

Robyn Wood, Purple Salt,

First up I have a sweet box created for my first class at Bella Paperie. It was fun to pair Debra’s beautiful hand dyed lace with pretty papers and die cuts.

















I think the use of embossing folders on an art journal page is a little unusual – I happened on the idea of using an embossing folder to impress into wet texture paste to give an extra layer of pattern.

Can you see the hexagon pattern? It is a little subtle in some spots.

I’ll actually be teaching how to create this page next weekend for Bella Paperie – check out all the details within the May class listings here!

Robyn Wood - Fairy

Fairies…what little girl can’t live without fairies in her life? I still love the whimsical nature of this stamp and can’t bear to part with it.

I’ll be teaching how to create this tag soon for Bella Paperie – keep an eye on their Facebook page for details.

Robyn Wood - Happy Birthday

I like to use a bit of contrast in my cards and what better one than black and white?

Robyn Wood - hello

Well hello…the perfect type of card for any occasion!

Robyn Wood - thank you

Over the years my favourite dies have morphed from filagree frame types such as the fairy card above, to diecut geometrics such as this one. They are so versatile for cards, scrapbooking and also as a texture feature in art journaling.

I hope you have enjoyed this look through some of my creations – wish me luck!!
