Emma

(for Tresors de Luxe)

My niece, Emma, when she was little

This is my second project for Tresors de Luxe and is also based on their Mood Board Challenge for November. There are 3 prizes for the challenge.  First prize is $75 to spend at the Tresors de Luxe etsy shop.  Rules for the contest can be found under the "files" section of the Tresors de Luxe Challenge page on facebook.

These are some of their products that I used:


Crystal Rhinestone Trim CR-023

I pulled 2 pieces of the trim off, coloured them with sunset orange alcohol ink and placed them over paper leaves.  Here is a closeup of them in the layout.



Rustic Brown Shabby Chic Flower FL-019

Ivory Lace Trim LA-019

Lace Trim LA-181

Nothing really complicated with this layout.  I layered a bunch of mini doily die cuts in the corners, painted the chipboard pieces orange and then coated them with different colour of  Distress Stickles glitter glue.  The large rhinestone flourishes are by Prima.  They've been in my collection for years waiting for the right layout.  I brushed a bit of orange paint over the lace and white over the flowers and did a bit of shading around the layout with black watercolour.  

The brown stamping in the background was an afterthought.  I had glued everything down but I felt it lacked something.  The first press of the stamp and I thought "there you go, now you've ruined it".  My husband likes to mock me about how often I say "It's ruined!"  I guess I'm a bit melodramatic about messing things up, lol.

Other than the brown floral pick and rhinestone "leaves" , all the flowers and paper leaves are by Petaloo. 

Here are some of the other products I used and some closeups of the layout:

2Crafty chipboard - Doily Border


Blue Fern Studios chipboard - Jeweled Trinkets
Inkadinkado stamp - Fabric Shop
Spellbinders die - Grand Decorative Circles One
Cheery Lynn die - Rum Punch Doily










Thanks for looking.

  1. Hey Tracy! You are really way too hard on yourself, but that is probably why your layouts are so fabulous every time! I actually LOVE the stamped imagine you chose - it enhances this LO; definitely does not ruin it! Such a gorgeous little red haired girl, Emma. WOW! You really made a beautiful creation. Oh, and I love that you colored the rhinestones and laid them on top of the leaves - very innovative touch! Lisa : )

  2. Love all the glitter and sparkling gems, perfect for your red haired niece and the personality she's showing in the photo. But then, I just might be prejudiced being a redhead myself. :-) Isn't it fun to turn the bling into colours using the alcohol ink? I've done that with pearls too. Can totally picture you saying you "ruined it". The stamping reminded me of hugs and kisses with the XO. It did add creative pop placing the leaf shaped gems on the paper ones. Love the painted bird too! ~Sue
