Good morning everyone
It’s Elaine here today and I have pleasure bringing you a scrapbook layout using the Open Road collection and the fabulous Australia shaped die cut from the collection.
To start making the layout, first I took the Undiscovered paper from the Open Road collection. I then took a 3″ strip from the Prospecting paper and matted it on a piece of Sprout cardstock. I then stuck this on the left hand side of the base paper.
I then layered the Australia shaped die cut paper over the top and set about matting the six circular photos onto Toffee Weave Kaisercard. I had five photos I wanted to use for the layout (it’s a great way to use up multiple photos like this). However, I couldn’t make the five photos work effectively so I used a page from the 6.5″ paper pad and cut the bottom photo out of one of sheets. It’s very realistic looking isn’t it? The pad and the whole collection has iconic photos of Australia within it including their ‘outback’ page which is featured twice in the paper pad and once in the whole collection and is called Unearth in the 12″ papers
I then set about using embellishing the die cut using the Collectables pack and a extra elements that I fussy cut from the paper pad.
To finish I added the leaves from the collectables pack to link all of the circles around the edge and added my title.
I think you’ll agree this collection is just fab for all those travel photos you may have if you’ve been lucky enough to visit Australia, or have family there, as I do.
I do hope this has given you some ideas. Don’t forget to show us what you have created with your collection by linking your blog post to this post or, alternatively, adding it to the Merly Impressions Facebook page or to the Kaisercraft Corner Facebook Page where you can share all your creations using any Kaisercraft collection. I look forward to seeing you there!
