Living a Creative Life

Hello Everyone,

Today I am sharing a layout that I have created using Kaisercraft’s CRAFTERNOON Collection. I was excited to use this collection! I think it is very versatile and it just perfect to capture and record those creative memories, especially for those photos that are a little more difficult to use with “just any collection”. For this layout I have decided to focus on the greens in this collection which coordinate with the green that I have highlighted in my black and white photo. I really wanted to use this collection to scrapbook this photo of my best friend because she opened my eyes to the world of scrapbooking, before I was only a card maker! I was able to easily use the doily patterns, a lace side punch and paper blooms to make this layout quite elegant to match the photo. This highlights the versatility of this collection.

To create this layout I followed the steps below:

  1. Trim CUT AND PASTE – CRAFTERNOON COLLECTION to 30.5 x 30.5 cm. Using TEXTURE PASTE transfer the pattern from QUILTED 6X6 DESIGNER STENCIL 1.5 cm from the left-hand side and 4 cm from the right-hand side.

  2. Cut the top of EMBROIDERY – CRAFTERNOON COLLECTION at 15 x 30.5 cm and punch both long sides with a decorative punch or border die cut. Stitch from the top to the bottom at ~ 0.5 cm from the punched pattern, on both sides, and one line down the centre in a dark green thread.
