Design Team Project, VIDEO TUTORIAL

Memorable Moments – Miss Carrie – Youtube video

Hello everyone!

Miss. Carrie here on the blog today with a lovely vacation layout I created using a mix of chipboard elements. I am new to the team, and I have truly enjoyed creating with the chipboard pieces and stencils.

The background was created using image transfers and stenciling.

I wanted to create a softer feel so I chose to use a grey paste with the Creative Script stencil After the paste had dried, I added a mix of ephemera and pattern papers to the centre of the page and created a grounding strip with the notebook edge border.

Notebook Edge Border

Burlap Stencil

To bring some more texture to the page, I used the Burlap stencil on the notebook border and shaded it with black soot ink. I trimmed it down to fit and layered the photo on top.

Behind the photo, I tucked some foliage #27 that I shaded in soft espresso ink. These created a nice neutral frame and separated the photo from the floral pattern in the background.

Around the photo, I added a few more horizontal pieces of ephemera and layered some pine trees to match the theme of the photo.

The pine trees are shaded with a variety of green distress sprays and a brush of espresso ink I layered three of the pieces on the right side of the photo and a single tree on the left.

At the base of the page, I adhered the memorable moments title

This piece was prepped with white gesso, then sprayed with uncharted mariner ink, and distressed with black soot.

Word Disks #3

To match the blue in the title and border, I brought in a small circle phrase at the top. I tucked some twine behind this and added a few little arrows off to the left.

This little addition at the top of the page was a great way to finish off the project. If you are interested, I have a process video on

I hope that today’s project inspired you to create something new.

If you have any questions, please leave me a comment.
