Enjoy this fabulous layout featuring our Lady Like Collection.

“I chose the Lady Like Collection for this project because of the soft muted tones and feminine florals. You can use the three colours separately or combined on any project from cards to Off the Page. It’s a beautiful romantic collection for all occasions.”

Today I’m sharing a layout and quick tutorial using the Lady Like Collection from Kaisercraft. I had so many ideas and wasn’t sure which way to go, but eventually I settled on using lots of layers. This collection is so versatile, you can either use each colour separately or combined as I have done here. It’s such a soft, feminine, romantic collection that could be used for all occasions.

To start, I’ve taken the “Gertrude” 12×12 patterned paper to use as the base for this layout.
Take the “Delores” 12×12 patterned paper and cut it down to 11.5″x11.5″.
Take the “Elsie” patterned paper and cut it down to 10.75″x10.75″. 
Next take another sheet of “Delores” 12×12 patterned paper and cut it down to 10.5″x10.5″ (Note: flip this piece over so the pink side is showing).


Once you have these layers, cut out a 9.25″x9.25″ square piece from the “Gertrude” base leaving approximately a two inch border on the base piece. This cut out piece will be another layer.
Then take a second sheet of “Elsie” 12×12 patterned paper and cut it down to 8.75″x8.75″ making sure to measure from the bottom left so you include the floral pattern. Distress and assemble all layers as shown below.

Take the “Rose” 12×12 patterned paper and fussy cut all flowers from the page. Adhere to the layout as shown. Next, take the “Patsy” 12×12 patterned paper and fussy cut all elements from the page. You will need the lace frame which I have cut down and adhered as shown below. The pink lace strip is from the sticker book, you will need both of these.

Because there’s so many layers, I popped the photo up on some cardboard to give the layout some extra dimension.

Once you have this base down, add further floral and elements from both pages and sticker book. Assemble as shown in the finished layout below. Randomly add some pink pearls around the page and on the floral photo cluster. Add some black pearls to the body of both butterflies.
