“I felt this range of papers told the story of crafters and felt it would make a great memory of the Kaiser design team 2019/20”. AmG.

This range has colours which are bright and cheerful which is how we scrapbookers are most of the time. For me crafting is happiness & all the quotes and sayings pertained to how I feel when I’m making memories for my family and friends. I selected a large photo which is double matted and raised to add dimension. After creating my base pages I started gathering the collectables, lots of fussy cutting of doilies, flowers and leaves and stickers which I adhered to cardstock to enable them to be mounted with foam tape.

I then proceeded to build my left and right side flourish of embellishments to be slightly similar, then adhered them in place. On the left page I used the main quote: we gather up pictures….. as an image mounted on foam tape I tucked pretties around using DS tape and foam tape . I tucked more pretties around the photo, added some curios and wooden flourishes to complete.

There are full instructions for this double layout project downloadable and /or printable available HERE. I hope I have inspired you to have a crafternoon with this Crafternoon range .

Happy Scrapping till next time

Technique Tuesday – Adding Dimension

Adding dimension and depth to your photo

Hello and welcome, Annette here, today is my day to share a technique, I found this a great way to add depth to an image by layering a smaller photo centrally over a larger one. On this layout I have used only two photos however I have previously used three to emphasize the fullness of a large tree. I hope you find this a helpful idea and give it a try.

Sand the edges of the photos to give an distinct edge
Adhere both photos centrally on top of each other with a piece of cardboard,
I use cardboard as it holds the photo firmly

THANKFUL…… The Australian theme of this range prompted me to design a page featuring our national flower-the beautiful golden wattle..

Would you believe there was a glorious wattle in full bloom hanging over the back fence and a blue sky above I was able to get a great photo without leaving home .. just perfect ..

Then gathering all my chosen papers and trimmings I proceeded to play ..

STARRY NIGHT – CHRISTMAS EVE

PAPERS: STARRY NIGHT COLLECTION: P2823-Magic, P2824- Miraculous (reverse) P2822-Striking
KC PRODUCTS: KM132-gold mist, F629- Buttercream Paper blooms, CR236-Curios,

SK816-Starry Night

Hello all, Annette here today sharing with you my project created with the new Christmas range ‘Starry Night’ of absolutely stunningly different colours from the norm, black/navy/grey with shiny gold foil on cream, so rich, so luscious. I chose a black /white photo matted on white cardstock & Magic (black with gold slatters).

I sprayed gold mist diagonally across the page then lots of fussy cutting of the poinsettias petals to singles, and gathering them, the collectables and buttercream roses I arranged a floral display to highlight the photo of my youngest granddaughter taken about 7 years ago ..

Some flicks of gold mist are then added over the page and flowers for extra shine and I added some amber glass beads to floral display for extra bling.

I hope you have been inspired to create your Christmas layout , you can download or print off my instructions by clicking HERE.

Happy Scrapping
