Websters Pages New Holiday Collection & Tresors de Luxe

 
You can always spot one of Brandin's (Webster's Pages owner/designer) collections at a glance, they are always full of lovely feminine design elements: gorgeous flowers, flourishes, damask patterning and beautiful color palettes.  For me the pinks and golds in the 'Christmas Story' collection are a total favourite!  For this page I scrapped a photo I came across of my youngest daughter Meagan when I was shuffling through some older photos from a few years back.  I did a bit of inking with one of my favourite ink pads, the Tim Holtz 'Victorian Velvet' distress ink pad as well as adding a little texture with the 'Damask' 6x6 stencil from Crafters Workshop.
 

 
I've always loved the beautiful cameo's (Perfect Accents) from Websters Pages and now I'm so happy to see that they put out some gorgeous metal trinkets and frames that work beautifully with the cameos, they just click right in!  Didn't even have to glue it. 
 
 
Another fun little metal trinket is this one from the Christmas Story collection.  There are so many cool things you can do with this one.  It's hard to see in the photo above but IRL there is a lovely glossy effect on the center piece of the trinket. 
 
 
The photo above better shows the jewel-like glossy effect I was able to achieve in two easy steps.  See below for 2 easy steps to making your own unique trinket.
 
 
There are so many ways to make your own trinket design to compliment your page design....try cutting out a section of patterned paper, glue in place and cover in Glossy Accents....or put in a coat of glossy accents and fill with a variety of glass beads....the options are endless!
 
 
I also added a few accents to the page with some Dusty Attic chipboard, Baroque Corners is one of my all-time favourite chippies, it's one of those accents that fit in anywhere and add a touch of elegance to a page.  I also used one of the Elegant Frames to frame my title.  NOTE:  If you are looking for a great shop to purchase Dusty Attic Chippies in North America (USA & Canada), my friend Vicky Alberto is have a 20% off sale on all purchases over $25.00 from now until December 1st.  I noticed she has a lot of the newest DA chippies in as well!  You can find her Estsy shop here ~~> Simply Paper & Embellishments
 
 
And last but certainly not least, I have to tell you about these cute lil natural floral accents I got from Lucy at Tresors de Luxe Etsy shop!!  I got hit hard with the flu yesterday while working on this page and I wanted no more than to just crawl into bed and rest!  So I had to work quickly to get this page done.  I grabbed a couple of loose blooms I had in my stash and then took one of Lucy's natural floral accents and was quickly able to put together a nice floral cluster.  No fussing about with tying twine, bundling blooms or wire accents....all I had to do was glue it down.   If you haven't seen her etsy shop you are in for a treat, her shop is just packed with gorgeous laces, doiles, blooms and floral sprays!
 
Well, that's my post for today....I'm off to get me a little bit of rest, hope this flu doesn't stick to long.  Thanks everyone for stopping by today! xo

Gabrielle I agree Brandon's papers are outstanding, but I think you can make any paper look Stunning. This is simply gorgeous.

I was wondering where you get the beautiful lace flowers you use on your layouts I've been trying to find it for a long time. The one you use as a border around the heart. I Did not see it on the etsy shop.

Hope you are feeling better!!!

Gabrielle Pollacco said...

Yes, your right...the smaller lace I used around my heart was something I picked up off the roll at a local discount fabric store. Sometimes you just need a small lace design (I will mention to Lucy it might be a good idea for her to carry some thinner lace designs as well! :) (I'll look and see if my local fabric store still has it ...they tend to just get 1 roll in and move on to the next....I'll let you know if I found more :)
