Breathe It All In

Hello everyone.

I hope you are all well and keeping safe. Just before we end off the month, it is my turn to host a project using the Fallen Leaves Collection.

Kaisercraft products: Fallen Leaves Collection: P2919 Crunchy Leaves; P2921 Cosy Corner, P2925 Open Spaces; P2927 Frosty Fields; PP1087 6½”x 6½”paper pad; CT981 Collectables; CS381 Clear Stamps; FL668 Flourish Pack; IP751 Chocolate Inkpad

Starting with the P2921 Cosy Corner, cut the paper down to 11″ x 11″, then using a sanding block, sand all the way around the edges, giving a little more around the corners. This paper is then adhered in the centre of P2924.

Using some of the papers from the 6½” x 6½” paper pad, I have cut these down and used these to mat my photo, as well as adding some of the Collectables. This has been added to the centre of the page on foam tape – down the centre as I have tucked in leaves under and around the photo. Fussy cut leaves from then P2919 Crunchy Leaves paper and find all the leaves in the Collectabes pack – I have edged these with brown ink. Stamp a few leaves onto the smooth side of white card stock, using the big leaf of the clear stamps. Once dry to the touch, fussy cut these out, and edge with ink.

Arrange the fussy cut leaves, the stamped leaves and the collectable leaves around the photo, and adhere. Add the “ruler” strip from the P2927 Frosty Fields paper. The tags are from the mini paper pad.

I have then inserted wooden leaves throughout the paper leaves and the title “Breathe It All In” is also from the wooden flourish pack. The birds are from the collectable pack and added to finish off the layout.

Keep memories close to your heart

How gorgeous is this new range “Ladylike” – it is so pretty, and just the most beautiful colours – in pinks and greens and in blues and greys, so it makes the range really versatile.

Here is my a layout I created

Kaisercraft: Ladylike P2874 Rose; P2876 Jessica; PP1080 6″x6′ paper pad; SK820 Sticker Book; CR220 Curios; CT974 Collectables

Kaisercraft Product: 12 x 12 white cardstock; Foamtape

I started with using a piece of white cardstock and then tearin about 1 inch off end off the top and the bottom of the Rose paper, and adhered this to the cardstock. I then tore off about another 1½” from the top and the bottom of the Jessica paper and adhered this to the Rose paper.

The papers behind my photo, are from the 6″ x 6″ paper pad, and this was added to the page with foam tape (I have distressed the edges of these papers). Next I started layering the flowers from the Collectables and the Sticker book.

I started with the clock first adhered with foam tape, and then arranging the flowers also with foam tape too. When using the stickers I adhere foam tape or double sided tape under the stick and then coat the sticky part in talcum powder, and this takes the sticky away, and will not stick to your page or on anything else.

When tucking in the leaves, I usually bend these up so that it adds dimension to the cluster. The Keep Memories Close to your Heart title is out of the sticker book.

I have finished with adding a collectable tag and the butterfly to the cluster
