Christiane Twofold

Today we are spoiled with 2 layouts from Germany's Christiane Müller. She shares with us some of her trademark styles...lots of cutting and black outlining!


Cardstock - Bazzill
Patterned Paper : Chatterbox Chocolate Woods, Scroll Woods, Woods Stripes,
Ledger Paper: Making Memories
Letter Sticker: Doodlebug Loopy Lou
Glitter: Stickles from Ranger
Grungeboard: Tim Holtz
Buttons from my stash
Lace from my stash

Cut out a circle from the blue backside of the Chatterbox paper. Cut a circle ring from the Chatterbox Scroll Woods, (it must be a bit smaller then the first.) Adhere both. The leaf tendrils were cut from different Chatterbox papers (I used a selfmade template.) The Picture is matted with Making Memories Ledger Paper. I used the Basic Grey Bracket Album as a template. The journaling is written on foil, the title made from Doodlebug Letter Stickers and the green backside of Chatterbox Paper. Arrange all supplies on a kraft colored cardstock. All leaves and flowers are cut out from the Chatterbox Chocolate Woods Paper. The Grungeboard Bookplate and the rest of the glitter accents are made with Ranger Stickles. And again: everything is distressed with Ranger Distress Ink and outlined with black and white pens!! Have fun!!!


PP - Fancy Pants, Creative Imaginations
Numbers - Grungeboard
Acrylic Paint - MM
Paper Lace - Unknown
Pens - Sakura, Signo Uniball
Border Punch - Stampin' Up
Eyelet Setter Tool - MM

The black Narritive paper is punched with an eyelet-setter tool. The white paper is a cut-out from a Creative Imaginations Narrative journaling box and punched with a Stampin' Up border punch. Swirls are handcut from black Creative Imaginations Narrative paper. I've used chipboard letters as templates on white Creative Imaginations Narratives. Numbers are painted with red acrylic paint! The photo is layered with paper lace and a baby blue border from Creative Imaginations Narratives. And everything is bordered with a black pen!! ;)
