By combining a mix of Teresa Collins Travelogue products with a Scenic Route mini album (round scallop) Mel was able to create a simple yet striking album of a recent holiday to Sydney. Mel began by handcutting out the tags from two sheets of patterned paper (travel tags plus travel tags and words) and also removing the Destination Die cuts from their packaging sheet. The album was completed by using a mix of photos, page titles (Scenic Route Berkeley letters & Black Omaha stickers) and a diecut for each page. The journaling was finished off by using Hero Arts Basic Lowercase alphabet letters, a favourite alpha stamp of Mel's that features on a large percentage of her pages.
One of Nicole's favourite colour combinations is green and black so she was very pleased to see the Bon Appetit range by Teresa Collins. It provided a fantastic backdrop to these gorgeous photos of her children baking the traditional Christmas cookies which they give as gifts. People often ask for the recipe and Nicole jokes that it's secret. She has the recipe safely tucked away under the photo of Alexander!
The beauty of the Teresa Collins ranges is that they often mix well together. Here Nicole used a Bon Appetit base but then added a bracket mat from the Journal-it range. Topped with a piece of BasicGrey black and bordered with one of Nicole's favourite embellishments - mixed buttons, the family now has a hard copy of Nic's infamous cookie recipe!
This layout by Nic Finlayson utilises the fabulous stamp-border paper from the Teresa Collins Journal-It collection. Here she has a ready-made base to just quickly and easily add some journalling and embellishment.
Steph wanted to make a Christmas Present for her Mum, and this was the perfect opportunity for create a shabby chic piece to sit upon her Mum's Coffee Table. The pretty pinks are contrasted by Teresa Collins beautiful sense of colour, whereby black acts as an interesting accent but not too overpowering. The Terese Collins Crown is just cut out of her custom journalling papers, and adorned with Heidi Swapp Jewels and Chandelier Crystals.
This gorgeous looking mini album is actually a free class by Teresa Collins, currently on offer on her website (see our sidebar for a link). Chock full of great ideas on how to turn her Tis the Season papers, diecuts and brackets into a fabulous and interactive keepsake. Well worth checking out.
And finally we leave you with some more samples of wonderful projects completed by the enormously talented Jamie Harper, using Tis the Season papers and products. Just to get you a little deeper into the Christmas mood.
Thanks Jamie for allowing us to share your fabulous work.
