You Make Life More Beautiful – Lady Like Collection

Hello, Donna here with my take on the Lady Like collection. I love this collection with its soft color palette of pink, blues, greys, and greens as well as the designs and patterns especially, yes you guessed right, the floral ones.

You can download the PDF instruction HERE or click the main image above.

PRODUCTS USED:
PAPERS: LADY LIKE Collection: P2874 Rose, P2880 Mabel, P2882 Evelyn
KC PRODUCTS: PP1080 Paper Pad, SK820 Sticker Book, CR220 Curios, FL661 Flourish Pack, CT974 Collectables, CS374 Clear stamps, CS360 Tiny Dot Texture Stamp, IP751 Chocolate Dye Ink Pad, IP740 Cotton Candy Ink Pad, KM132 Gold Kaiser Mist, IT501 Tiny Triangles Designer Template, EM405 Doily, T315 Double-Sided Tape, T303 Foam Tape, T321 Acid-Free Craft Glue
Other: Molding Paste, Hemp Twine

I created a simple mixed media background by using some stencil and molding paste as well as stamping and some distressing to add a bit of texture to the layout.

This banner is one of my favorite parts of this layout. I used the pennants from the sticker book and some hemp twine and I have a beautiful banner! I adhered the pennants in place to secure it properly though even though they’re stickers.

I also like trimming down some word art strips like the ones I used here. I do this when I didn’t one the word art strip/s to overwhelm the overall look of the layout. I also like snipping the edges either a simple slanted trim or some triangles to create a “banner-like” look.

ALL Kaisercraft products to create this layout are available online at the Kaisercraft Shop.

That’s all from me today and I hope you liked my layout as much as I do.
Thank you for dropping by and see you in my next post.

I added some texture first using the PELAGIC paper (reverse) as the background, with stencil and molding paste.

I also loved how the Texture Netting decorative die added to the mixed media background as well as to the clusters and layers of papers, flourishes and die cuts under and around the photo.

I kept the wood flourishes as is to mix with the color palette of the collection. Then I stamped in random places using the clear stamp and Denim ink pad.
I have a tip for you as well, don’t throw away the paper product strips, you can use it like I did here, to add some wonderful word arts to your layout.

That’s all from me today. I hope you liked my layout as much as I do.

Technique Tuesday – Clusters and Layers

Hello, Donna here with this week’s Technique Tuesday post. Today, I am showing you how to create a scrapbook layout with layers and clusters without adding too much bulk.

PDF instructions can be downloaded HERE or by clicking the main image above.

KAISERCRAFT PRODUCT USED: PEPPERMINT KISSES Collection: P2817  Santa & Co., P2819 Under The Tree, SK815 Sticker book, PP1075 Paper Pad, CT969 Collectables, CR215 Curios, FL656 Flourish Pack, KM132 Gold Shimmer, IT495 Scattered Stars, EM405 Doily, T315 Double-Sided Tape, T303 Foam Tape, T321 Acid-Free Craft Glue
OTHER: Molding Paste, Pink Embroidery Thread

Use SANTA & Co. (Reverse) as the background for this layout. Cut UNDER THE TREE, trimming the bottom and left side part and adhere to the background as seen in the image (set aside the leftover for later). Use Scattered Starts template and molding paste to add texture. Slightly fold the edges of UNDER THE TREE


Get another piece of SANTA & Co. paper and fussy cut the patterns. Do the same with the patterns from UNDER THE TREE paper left over from the previous one.

Adhere the fussy cut trees and some Collectables to the top left part. Then add a white doily and pink embroidery thread. Place the photo using foam tape for a bit of dimension. Start embellishing with stickers and border pieces from the paper pad.

Continue embellishing the layout up to the bottom part until you’re satisfied with the layers and clusters. For the final touch, add some splatter of gold using the Gold Shimmer Kaiser Mist. Then the layout is done!

And here is the finished layout

SPARKLE – Let it Shine Collection

Hello and Welcome,
It’s Annette here, delighted to be sharing my first project as a member of the Kaisercraft Design Team. This collection is so pretty, the shades of turquoise with shiny silver and white, just perfect non-traditional Christmas pages or snow holidays. I chose to create a LO of my daughter, who always leaves a little sparkle wherever she goes.

PAPER: LET IT SNOW Collection: P2808 All is Calm, P2806 Pine Forest, plus reverse & quote strip, P2803 Delightful, P2804 Twinkle Star
KC PRODUCTS: Cardstock: 2 x Slate,1 x White. Die cut, F632Flowers, SK814Sticker Book, Rhinestones- Clear, KM127Kaiser Mist, Flourish pack – Shine small wooden snowflakes,
OTHER: Silver Glitter, Lace and larger wooden snowflakes.

I love to frame my pages, so using the deep SLATE grey as my base and then WHITE cardstock, I felt it highlighted the completed page perfectly. Distressing and shabbying ?? (is that really a word) is another feature of my scrapbooking ‘style’.

I also triple matted my photos as they are the main focal point. Don’t we scrapbook is to tell a story however simple about our photos?
I also misted, added rhinestones and glitter to complement the title ‘SPARKLE’.

There are many layers of prettiness with lace and clusters, I hope you like what I have created. if you wish to create your version of my Layout the instructions can be found HERE.

Bye for now, Happy Scrapping, Annette x

BOYS will be BOYS- layout by Annette Gearside

Hello all and welcome .. it’s fantastic to see you here, This is Annette sharing my first blog post as a design team member and what better way than with this super masculine range ‘ WORKSHOP’. Love the grungy look of this collection, with blue/grey with a touch of rust, so awesome for the boys& men in your life.

BOYS will be BOYS

PRODUCTS USED: PAPERS: WORKSHOP Collection: P2798-Courageous, P2801Chivalrous, P2797-Gallant

KC PRODUCTS: Cardstock ‘Anchor’ Inks IP751-Chocolate, IP747Denim, Wooden Cogs, CS364-Stamp, CT967-Collectables, SK813-Sticker book, IT494-Stencil

I really like to frame my Layouts so I used cardstock , then my chosen patterned papers, distressing all edges to add to the grungy look, then applying thick heavy gesso through a stencil then stamping for dimension.

I double matted two of my photos and the centre feature photo was framed to highlight. you may also notice my photos are not perfect, a little blurry , they still however tell a story & preserve memories.

I inked & glazed the wooden cogs, plus used bits from the collectables & fussy cut some cogs from the patterned paper , these have been added with various thicknesses of foam tape.

I framed my feature photo with the ruler print, I felt this pic truly portrayed my grandson who absolutely groans when I ask for a posed pic, truly I could create an album of poked tongues & screwed up facial expressions. I have started to use them because it him to a ‘T’ the joker.

I thoroughly enjoyed creating with this ‘WORKSHOP range of papers and I know you will also, if you wish to create a similar LO my instructions for this layout are HERE.

Bye for now, till next time,

Happy Scrapping, Annette

Monochromatic Flowers with Terhi

Hi there, Terhi here!
It’s the end of July but still I want to share you a layout about my most favourite thing about spring. It’s the cherry flowers, the amazing looks of the trees and smell you can’t forget!

PAPERS: MAGENTA Collection: P2775 Fuchsia, P2779 Raspberry, P2781 Berry, P2782 Pink, P2783 Rouge
KC PRODUCTS: 
PP1071 Paper Pad, CT965 Collectables, CS356 Clear Stamps, KM125 Kaiser Mist Candy, SB794 Pearls Snow, Smooth Cardstock White
OTHER:
T320 Craft Glue, T302 Foam Dots, Cotton thread

As said, I love cherry blooms. I know magenta colour isn’t exactly the same colours as cherry blooms but who cares, it’s obvious I love all blooms in all possible colours!

You can’t bring the smell to a layout, even though it would something you’d love to remember forever, but you can bring the thought about the smell. To do that, I decided to add as many flowers as possible to the layout, to remind about how rich and large the trees are during spring. I hope this makes me remember the smell after years. And to make sure, I also added this fact to my journaling, of course.

The background of the layout is a mix of adding colours and blocking colours. Go ahead and read the PDF instructions to learn more, download it here.

I hope you are inspired!
