Take Tim to Stop and Enjoy the Little Things with Workshop

Hello, Karen here with my second project using Kaisercraft’s Workshop range.   Although this is a predominantly masculine range I wanted to show the softer, more muted colours in the collection.

Take Time

For this layout I have used Chivalrous, Tough, Fearless, and Gallant 12 x 12 papers, Anchor Kaiserweave Cardstock, 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad, Sticker BookCollectables and Mounting Foam Dots.

I started by cutting .25 in from the top and right of the Chivalrous paper.  Then I carefully cut around the saddle and front wheel of the bicycle at the bottom left of this paper. Next I cut the cogs, wheels and tickets from the reverse of the Tough paper, this was slid under the saddle of the bicycle and lined up along the left edge of the Chivalrous paper.  I only stuck the left side of this piece as I wanted to add foam pads later to give it some dimension. I then added this to the Anchor Kaiserweave Cardstock.


From the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad I cut the border from the page that corresponded with the reverse of the Tough paper.


This was added to the bottom right of my page.  I fussy cut the page with all the wheels, from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad,and tucked these, along with some wheels and cogs from the Collectables pack, under the cut sections on the left and bottom of my page, adding some underneath the front wheel of the bicycle.


Next I adhered two pieces of 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad, with bicycles on, together to ensure it was large enough to make a mount for my 5 x 7 in photo.


I cut this to 5.5 x 8 and adhered it to a piece of Gallant paper measuring 5.75 x 8.25.  I then cut a piece of Fearless which measured 7.5 tall and 8 in wide.

I built up my page by first adding the piece of Fearless 3.25 from the bottom and 2.5 from the left.  Onto this I added the photo mount – butting it up to the right edge of my page then popped the photo on.  I had some wooden bicycles from an old Kaisercraft Wooden Flourish pack – I think it was called travel, and I added 5 of those to the bottom of my photo.  The final touches were to add a phrase from the Collectables pack to the top left of my photo and one from the  Sticker Book on the right of my page above my wheel clusters.


I hope you like how I have changed up this collection and, as always, we would love to see what you have made on our FaceBook page.
