Celebrate by DT Member Emma Stafrace

I am so excited to be showcasing our new Design Teams first kit release!!

These beautiful layouts are using the Authentique Celebrate Collection.  This kit walked out the door and is already SOLD OUT.

Emma has shared how she created these gorgoeus layouts!!

The 'Enjoyment' floral pp lends itself beautifully to some fussy cutting. I created a mask by tracing some of the flowers onto some paper and then cutting it from a sheet of masking film. This enabled me to mist the background first inturn adding some depth.

I also used some of the elements stickers on this one, positioning them so they resemble brickwork, which is a fun and easy way to journal.

This page uses both sides of the 'Happy' PP from the range. I used gesso to adhere printed strips of paper onto the cardstock and then painted in a light wash of gesso over the top to knock back the bold text background. Then to add some interest I tore some of the paper and inked the tears to create a more distressed look on the edges.

Celebration Card: Using some scrap pieces from the kit, ribbon and a few of the sticker elements.
 Party Time Card: I used the 6x6 Mini basket weave TCW template on the base card, then added some tulle. I grabbed some scrap cardstock from my personal stash and used that to diecut the scalloped flower petals and using scraps from the paper kit I fussy cut some vines and leaves. In this one I used a couple of the Sticker elements too.

This one is using the 'Laughter' PP as the base with a couple of strips from the 'Happy' PP. I gessoed two areas so that I could mask the new 6x6 Mini Gears TCW template with 'Black Soot' distress ink.

The title 'The Makings of a Perfect Duo' is created using the alpha stickers from the Elements sheet. By sticking them on acetate I was then able to add a couple of foam pop dots on the back to create different heights. Lastly I added some chipboard cogs and a couple of buttons to finish it off.

The 'Rejoice' pp is a bold woodgrain so kept the over all design of this one minimal with lots of empty space.

Using gesso directly on the pp to ground the series of photo's and help them stand out also provided a great base to ink some circles on top of its surface for added interest. I also used some of the ribbon included in the kit to define the two clustered sections and collaged some tisuue paper to soften the whole effect.

If you were one of the lucky ones who received this kit I hope yo have a wonderful time scrapping these stunning layouts!!
