Remember and Baby Girl - Lauren Tomecek

Hello chipboard fans! I have two layouts to share today. My first is a family photo from my sister's wedding a few years ago. I wanted to go with a bit of a rustic feel with gold bling highlights. The new CB4069 Ornate Frames 26 set was perfect for my flourishes and stunning frame. I've embossed the frame with gold embossing powder but left the smaller background flourishes raw.

The chain pieces (CB6109 Lamps 11 and CB1229 Chains 02) were all embossed in chocolate-coloured powder. I love the effect of the gold texture paste through the ST9006-A5 stencil in the background. My title comes from the CB6112 Scrap Words 31 pack.

The second layout I'm sharing today was created for the CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration challenge for July, which Scrapmatts is sponsoring. I have used the same background stencil (ST9006-A5) only this time painted watercolours through it for a more subtle effect. My flourishes are actually from CB2003 Page Borders 02, but I've cut it into two quarter pieces to use either side of my photo.

I had been wanting to use the gorgeous rocking horse chipboard piece (CB6057 Rocking Horses 01) for such a long time, so was very excited to finally get the chance. I have left the horse itself raw and painted the darker brown parts with a watercolour pencil, then used a gold pen to highlight the metallic details. The title comes from the CB5135 Baby Boy 01 set. I have scattered words across from page from CB1191 Scrap Words 03.

If you're interested in playing along with the CSI challenge, the Case File is below and it's open all month. I'd love to see what you create. 


  1. Two inspirational pages Lauren. The elegant wedding page looks gorgeous with the gold stencilling and the CSI Guest page is so sweet with the little rocking horse.
