Documented Scrapbook Layout

Good morning everyone.

Today I’m delighted to be bringing you a scrapbook layout using the wonderful sepia toned ‘Documented’ collection. I just love the warm tones of this collection and it’s just perfect for heritage layouts and school photo’s.. I’m sure we’ve all got plenty of those lying around just waiting to be scrapped.

However, today I’ve chosen to scrap some completely up to date photos to show how versatile this gorgeous set of papers are.

First, I took a page of Latte Weave Kaisercard and I used my  WRMK Stitch Piercer to create a grid pattern on the page. I then stitched it using two strands of the Brown Easy Floss. This left me with three square in each row measuring approximately 3.5″ x 3’5 inches.

I then took a sheet of Kraft Kaisercard and cut it into 3″ squares and stamped a few pieces using the Kaisercraft Vintage Ink Pad and the Documented Clear Stamp Set.

I then cut more layers of paper to place in stacks in each block measuring approximately 3 1/4″ . For these layers I used the 6″ paper pad and I selected the tape measures page, the typewriter keys, the library ephemera and the plain sepia leatherette page. I also punched one of the stamped pieces into a heart shape and used two photos to create the final layers on the opposite corner blocks and finished the other blocks with the stamped Kraft card. In addition I stamped a small piece of vellum to place over the finished clusters.

To finish I used lots of embellishments including Lucky Dip Wooden Shapes, buttons from my stash, stickers from the sticker sheet, a page from the paper pad, hemp cord, Natural Lace (currently in the sale) and some Sparklets from the Daffodil collection and some Natural Epoxy Stickers and some collectables from the Collectable Pack. I then finished it off with some heat embossed cardboard Thickers from my stash.
