November Inspiration and Picture Tutorial
by Debbie Burns

Hi everyone, Debbie here with you today to share my November projects. 

"Amazing Day"

I love fall colors with their deep rich tones.  I used a picture of a dear friend of mine and
was inspired by the colors in the picture. I applied some random misting on the background.

I embossed the Frame Handrawn Heart with a mixture of spice and chili powder.  On each side of my photo I added Addy's Butterflies, embossed with spice, sage and turquoise embossing powders. Beneath the butterfly is the new Swaying Branches embossed with a distressed brown powder.

I added some twig and paprika microbeads.

Here I've used the new Amazing Day title embossed with brown and chili.

Karine's November Share....

My dear crafty friends,

Is it really the middle of November yet?
 I can't believe time flies that fast!
 I almost didn't make it this month for my monthly share, but I managed 
to steel a few hours to create two layouts that I share with you today. The first one is called

 «You Shine»

I started out with the Circle Lace Panel. I cut it in a few pieces
 and I embossed those with black embossing powder.

Next, I selected the beautiful Leafy Shrub Set 2.

I used all three pieces on my layout, amongst my flower clusters.

I covered them partially with dark teal embossing powder, leaving the
raw chipboard showing in a few places. I love the distress look it gives.

Finally, my title piece is the You Shine title. I embossed  with aqua embossing powder.

You Shine-title

My second layout features a family picture and is called...


This time, I selected the Frame Elouise's as my focal point.

I embossed it with gold embossing powder.

I then used one of the Ada's Flourishes. I cut it in half, placing the biggest
 part below my picture. I embossed it with bronze embossing powder.

The other half, I placed to the left to my picture.

I also embossed the Tahnya's 6" Border with this bronze embossing powder.

I placed it on the left side of my layout, in my flowers cluster.

Finally, I used one of the Line Words - Goodtimes Borders, embossed in bronze powder.

- Ada’s Flourishes

I really hope you like my layouts.
See you in December!
