Tatiana is here with you today and I’d like to share my new layout featuring Documented collecion. This time I chose my dad and uncle photography. I used clocks on my layout as a symbol of time, added number stickers ’59’ it’s a year when the photography was taken. There is a hanwritten text on the back side of the photo, so I decided to use photo corners and didn’t adhere photography on the page.
I also used negatives from the stickers.
As usual on the final steps I added splashes and rhinestones to my project.
I splattered a water-diluted white acrylic paint, some brown mists and watercolor to create the background
I first splattered the white acrylic paint followed by the brown watercolor. I let it sit for a few minutes before splattering the brown mist. I repeated this several times until I achieved the look I wanted
I preferred to leave the wooden flourishes bare/as is. I just added some pearls in the center.
The title is several layers of file I cut using an electronic cutting machine. A fine-tipped glue applicator is great to help for easy application of adhesive to small/tiny or intricate details.
To finish off the look, I scattered a mix of rhinestones and pearls all over the layout
Thanks for dropping by and I hope you liked my project using the Documented collection.
Hi Everyone, it’s Beck Beattie here to share with you a multiple photo scrapbook page. When I had the honour of joining the team one of the requests I had was to see some scrapbook pages that featured a number of photos.
While going through some old photos, I found some that were taken by my mother in-law on one of her last trips before she passed. I thought how nice would it be to have some of these photos captured on scrapbook pages. I’m honestly not sure of where exactly they are taken, but she took them and that makes them special to us.
I enjoyed layering some of the papers along with stickers from the sticker sheet to create a masculine look for this page. This seemed perfect with the photos being of some of the big trucks out on the mines in the outback. For additional interest I raised various areas to create a little more dimension to the page.
I hope you enjoyed my share which featured a multiple photo scrapbook page. A sure fun way to get a number of pictures onto your page.
Hi everyone, Jowilna here on the blog today sharing a Documented layout with a hint of colour. I simply love this range but wanted to add a touch of colour.
I started off creating my mixed media inked background using re-inkers.
The effect left a hint of cream, yellow, a beautiful grey and even some blue and green colours visible once the ink had dried.
A variety of Collectables elements added the yellow tones and for the blue/green I added some scrunched up thread under my photo.
This multicoloured thread gave me the interest and hint of colour I craved.
A couple of coloured splats offers the accent colours support and makes for a nice detail.
Mini Typography stenciled detail works well on the background. I could have added the stenciled details in a colour come to think of it.
It just shows you how versatile this range is – perfect for everyday moments, school days, vintage, heritage and boys.
Thanks for stopping by today. We hope you have enjoyed seeing the versatility of this range as showcased by the Design Team the last couple of weeks.
Some more amazing designs heading your way with this month’s ranges…so come back soon.

It’s Renee here, to share with you, a tutorial on how to create a Mixed Media Vintage Layout using the Documented Collection, including the Typography Template and Clear Stamps.
I start by using the Documented Collection P2462 Lockers (Reverse) as the background.
I want to create layers and texture. So next I am going to use Whipped Spackle and the IT030 Mini Designer Template – Typography along the right side of the page.
I allow this to dry naturally.
Using a dry brush, I add some White Gesso to the centre of the page and then also allow it to dry naturally.
To create the above affect, I use a combination of the IP719 Ink Pad – Black and a Tim Holtz Distress Ink Oxide – Vintage Photo. Using a piece of empty packaging plastic, I add some of the ink and then stamp in the section I would like it to go, focusing more on the areas where the gesso is and around where the photo will be.
Here is a close-up:
Using CS785 Clear Stamp – Typewriter Font and an acrylic block, add some letters in random spots on the block to create an alphabet stamp.
I wanted add another pop of colour, so I use IP723 Ink Pad – Vintage and the Ruler from CS319 Clear Stamp – Documented.
Here is a short video to show you how I created the stamping technique.
This is what it looked like after I completed the stamping.
Here is a close-up:
From here it was a matter of finishing with various Patterned Paper, Collectables and Die Cuts from the Documented Collection.
The Title “Memories Together” came from SS355 Sticker Sheet – Document Collection.
Tearing sheets of Patterned Paper give this layout a vintage feel.
I love this collection and I know you will too.
I hope you were inspired and thank you for stopping by.
Mariusz here!!! Today I wanna share with you a vintage card with many layers. I created this with Kaisercraft’s new collection Documented. I hope you really like the design of papers and also embellishments.
I’m Mabel and I’m back to share with you a off-the-page piece that is really simple to make. I had DIY-ed a pen holder that comes in real handy with my increasing pen collection. I will be sharing with you how I had created this pen holder with Kaisercraft’s new collection Documented.
First, I had started out with a toilet roll that I had gotten from my office janitor as it has a bigger diameter more suitable for a pen holder. I had taken Black acrylic paint from Kaisercolour to paint the exterior and interior of the roll black.
To form the base, I had traced the exterior circumference of the roll on a
scrap piece of cardboard and cut it out.
I had also painted it black followed by apply glue on the circumference such that I can
glued it onto one end of the roll to create the base.
Don’t worry about the open edges as it will soon be covered by burlap strings.
I had also cut a strip of P2460 Library Ephemera (flipped side) while coiling burlap strings
on top and bottom of my pen holder.
Ta-da! The final look after embellishments!
Kaisercraft’s sticker sheet and collectables had made embellishing your work so much easier. There’s no need for fussy cutting and it had made entire crafting process so much faster and convenient.
To tie all elements together, I had brush on white gesso to give it a white wash effect. It also works well as a finishing touch.
Happy New Year everyone! Today I am sharing a layout I have created with the new Havana Nights collection.This collection has a Summery vibe with fun splashes of colour.
Here is a look at my completed layout……
I have used the specialty die cut page, ‘Bamboo’, and backed some of the slots with paper from the paper pad.
I used plain white card stock as my base paper as I really wanted the specialty paper to stand out. I adhered it to the base paper with foam tape and dots to give it a raised appearance.
I have used the lovely greenery sticker from the sticker sheet as a border down the left side of my page. (To tell the truth I actually used two but it would still look fine with only one, I just wanted extra leaves!) I also used two of the smaller floral design sticker borders too.I think it gave a nice dimension to my layout.
Tucked away under my photo you will see some flowers cut from the Hanami Flowers die.I cut three seperate lots and curved them around, underneath my photo.
as soon as I saw this quote i knew it was perfect for my photo. It was at the base of the ‘Tropic’ paper sheet.I have cut it apart for balance before adding it to my layout.
To finish I added some blooms from the collectables as well as a larger bloom I fussy cut from the ‘Tropic’ paper. I used foam dots on some to raise them to give more dimension.
I hope my layout has given you some inspiration today to create your own unique pieces.
