Webster's Pages NEW Modern Romance!!

I'm so excited about this beautiful romantic NEW collection from Webster's Pages called Modern Romance!!  I love the abundance of gorgeous floral elements in the papers (so perfect for those of us that love the fussy cutting!).  And I LOVE the pretty black & white houndstooth paper in this collection, it makes such a lovely contrast to the fresh pretty pinks and whites!  Here is a quick peek at the collection if you haven't already seen it! (It's a new release for the Winter CHA!)
For my first layout using this collection I just had to go with a nice romantic photo just because the collection name is so suited to the photo!!  This is another of my nephew's engagement photos.  I printed the photo in black and white to go with the pink/black/white color palate I chose for this layout.  The houndstooth design with the pink paper made me think of those classic Chanel suits, so I thought I would create a pleat/button design on the page to mimic the look of a Chanel suit.
 I made the buttons by simply cutting/or punching out 2 small circles from the houndstooth paper, rubbing a bit of black chalk ink around the edges to give the 'button' a rounded look.  Then I pasted the circle to a piece of carstock that I painted with some copper/brass paint and cut a 1/8" edge around the circle to give the look of fabric mounted on brass button.  I then attached it to the page with a foam dot to lift it off the page.  (check out the cute new trims that go with this collection! I love the little rosettes trim!!)
This collection also come with a bunch of new resin pieces!!  Webster's pages is famous for thier gorgeous cameo resin pieces, now they come out with these adorable frames on which you can moun the cameos....or you can frame the cute new bird/nest cameo pieces with them! (above)
For this layout I simply fussy cut some of the blooms in the patterned papers and created a handmade bloom from some crepe paper.  I didn't use a whole lotta blooms on the page but it still has a nice full floral look because of the cut paper blooms (a great little money saving trick for those of us that may not have a lot of blooms in our stash).  The chipboard window is a new chippie by Dusty Attic called Window with Shutters.  I just love this piece!  I simply pinted the piece white and rubbed the edges with a bit of brown chalk ink to give an aged look to it.
 
And finally I have a couple of fun little cards I made up with the scraps I had left over from making the above layout mixed with another one of my favourite papers in this collection (this paper has a bunch of floral card/tag designs that are a perfect base for cardmaking)
 .
 
You can find the full Modern Romance collection peeks at the Websters Pages Blog (along with a little peek a the other new collections being released at the CHA).  There are so many cute new elements and embellishments coming out with this collection, new metal embellishments, darling little paper bags perfect for slipping journaling into and fun washi tapes and twine!   (I'll be posting layouts with some of the new collections in the coming month, I think you will love them as much as I do! :)
