Relax with Sunkissed

Hello, Karen here and I have to ask you “How gorgeous is this months Kaisercraft collection – Sunkissed“?  I think it is stunning with all it’s bright colours and beautiful tropical flowers, birds and flamingos.

Relax

I knew I had the perfect photo to showcase the flamingo theme and so built my page around that.

I started by cutting a 1 in frame from the Hibiscus weave cardstock.  Then cut the remaining piece to an 8 ins square and gutted a 1.5 in frame from this – you will be left with two frames and a 5 in square piece.

Trim .75 in from the bottom and right of the Mojito paper  and add to the Hibiscus frame.

Cut a piece of Daiquiri paper to measure 5.5 ins from the bottom.  Lay, but do not stick 1 in from the bottom of your page.  Lay, but do not stick the 8 in Hibiscus frame on top of this, 2 ins from the bottom and 2 ins from the left.

Mark with a pencil where it covers the flamingos and carefully cut the overlapped sections.

You can now stick down the piece of Daiquiri  but don’t stick the parts you have trimmed as these are going over the 8 in Hibiscus frame.

Add a fussy cut spray of flowers cut from Pina Colada to the top left of your page, then add the 8 in Hibiscus frame 2 ins from the left and 2 ins from the bottom

Add another spring of flowers from Pina Colada to the top left of your page, overlapping the Hibiscus frame. To the centre of the Hibiscus frame add the green and white polka dot paper from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad then stick the flamingos over that.

Add the sheet of paper with flamingos and green stripes, also from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad,  to the bottom right of your page .75 from right and 1.5 from bottom.  Add the 5 in square of Hibiscus to the centre of this.

A third spring cut from Pina Colada  is added to the top right of your page.

I added phrases from the Collectables pack to the top left of the green and white polka dot paper and a tab from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad.

To finish I used ‘Relax’ and two flamingos , from the Collectables pack, at the bottom of my photograph.

This page came together so easily and it turned out to be such a fun page with all those cute flamingos!

Stay safe and I hope you can find time to do some crafting to take your mind of this crazy time we are in at the moment.
