“Dream” Magical Scene Layout

Hello! Donna here with a magical layout using the Enchanted collection.

I loved working on this layout. I played with it quite a bit at the beginning because I can’t decide which paper to use as the background. I finally decided using WHIMSY and created a beautiful, magical scene.

Click the image above or click HERE to download the instructions for this layout.

PAPERS: ENCHANTEDCollection – P2784Whimsy, P2791 Utopia, P2792 Wonder

KC PRODUCTS: SK812 Sticker Book, CT966 Collectables, EM405 White Doily, KM132Gold Shimmer, KM121 White, T302Mounting Tape, T321 Glue

I love fussy cutting and I always look for papers in a collection which I can do that. The Enchanted collection has several and the UTOPIA paper is just that.

I created a wreath-like design following the shape of the tree in the background and used a mixture of mounting tape, thick and thin, to create some depth.

Check out the slide show below for more detailed shots of the layout.

Love Life Scrapbook Layout

Hello, loves. Donna here with a new layout using the Magenta collection.

For a change, I created a scrapbook layout using my photo, so it’s like an “About Me” page. I like flowers and pink is my fave color so it’s just quite apt, I think.

Click the image above or HERE to download the PDF instructions for this layout.

The pop of black and the “naked” wood flourishes added great contrast to all the pinks in the layout. I opted to leave the flourishes as is instead of coloring them with black or something else.

One of the things I love doing recently is curling the tips or edges of the flowers and leaves. I like the added texture it gives to the layout.

That’s all from me today. Thank you for dropping by and see you in my next post.

Happy crafting,

Life is a journey

Hello, wonderful Kaisercraft friends. It’s Donna here to share my layout using the Journey collection.

This collection is perfect for those vintage lovers and travel-loving scrapbookers. Although I don’t really travel much, I have some photos that really matched the feel of this layout. Living in Saudi Arabia = desert. Lots and lots of it. I used an oldie but a fave photo I took from one of our desert escapades way back about 6 years ago.

I love the rugged feel and the blue and yellow tones in the collection. Even the cactus is a perfect accent to my layout!

Click the image above or click HERE to download the instructions for this layout.

PAPERS: JOURNEY Collection: P2768 Vagabond, P2769 Adventurer, P2771 Roamer

KC PRODUCTS: SK810 Sticker Book, PP1070 Paper Pad, CT964 Collectables, CR210 Curios, FL651 Flourish Pack, Kaiser Mists – KM129 Navy, KM132 Gold Shimmer, KM212 White, KM127 Turquoise, IP753 Licorice, CS358 Leather Texture Stamp, DD806 Cut out Patterns, GC106 Bronze, T303 Foam Tape, T314 Double-Sided Tape, T321 Acid-free craft glue

I started with splattering watered down Kaiser mists to Vagabond. I let it dry first before adhering the papers and embellishments down.
Tip: Try to splatter in different height from the background to get different sizes of splatters and/or you can use different brush sizes to get different splatter effects.

Use scissors or any tool to distress the edges of the papers and the photo. Incorporating different texture of papers like glittered cardstock enhances the overall look of a layout. I used a couple here die cutting a glittered cardstock.

Here is a slideshow for more detailed shots of the finished layout:

That’s all from me today. I hope you liked my layout! Until next time…

Happy crafting,

You are special to me

Hello, Kaisercraft friends. It’s Donna here with my layout using the Morning Dew collection.

I love how tranquil and serene this collection makes you feel. As always, the floral patterns are beautiful and my absolute fave in the whole collection. I used one sheet and fussy cut my heart out and embellished my layout with all of them.

PAPERS:  MORNING DEW Collection: P2757 Serene, P2762 Tranquil, and P2764 Exhale

KC PRODUCTS: SK809 Sticker book | PP1069 Paper Pad | CT63 Collectables | CR209 Curios | FL650 Flourish Pack | EM405 Doily | T315 Double-Sided Tape | T303 Foam Tape | T321 Acid-Free Craft Glue

I started by cutting Tranquil into 3 parts, adhering to the top of Exhale. I curl the edges of the paper layers to add depth.

Using foam tapes and curling the tips of the flowers and leaves can add to more texture and depth to the whole layout.

Check out this slideshow for more close up details of the layout:

Breathe Collection Layouts

Hey Guys.. Kasia here today sharing a layout I created with the Breathe Collection.

I am totally loving not only the colour palette of this collection

with the soft pink and bold navy, but the wonderful inspiring words.

This is a layout of my little girl because she often needs to slow down, just breathe and chill…lol!

I loved using the Breathe sticker book to add little embellishments to this layout

and I know I will be using the remainder of the stickers in my planner to keep me motivated.

It’s Cathy here and I was inspired by the background paper. I found a photo to coordinate with the paper and hence the collection. I am a firm believer that you can

add flowers to  masculine pages and had fun using the collectable flowers to add some finishing touches.

OTHER: White Embossing Powder, Versamark Ink, Hemp.

You can download the step by step instructions here.

I also created my own dreamcatcher by using a floral

wooden flourish along with the collectables to create

my own embellishment to add to my layout.

Living our Best Life

Good morning how are you?

There’s nothing like playing with new products and dies,  but do you feel overwhelmed when trying to combine them?
