A Happy Life with Memory Lane

Hi everyone,

Denise here today with my final layout using the lovely Memory Lane Kaisercraft collection.

I wanted to use the muted browns and beige colours of this collection for something different so started by using a piece of Kraft cardstock.

I then gutted a piece of Lakeside paper to leave a one inch frame so I could use the middle for matting then  used a punch around the page to make a pretty edge. This was then adhered to the kraft background.

Next I cut some varying layers of papers including two from the 6.5 x 6.5  paper pad and two from the 12 x 12 collection, Jade Jewel and the lacy side of Villawood.

I distressed the edges with a distressing tool first, then laid them on the background to see how I liked them. Once I was happy I mounted  them on to foam tape to add depth.

My photo was mounted on to an embossed paper from the 6×6 pad .

Next, I used some Kaisermists in black and pale green to add some colour to the background

I wanted to get a vintage kind of look to this so used some Frayed Burlap distress ink around the edges of the embellishments and papers.

I love to tuck things under edges and used some of the little tags from the 6 x 6 pad and flowers from the Collectables to embellish around the layout.

I also punched some little brown stars from the paper to use as embellishments.

I used some hemp twine to wrap around the paper and through the tag and some star Epoxy Stickers to finish off.

It was nice to change it up a bit and use a different colourway of  this versatile collection and hope you are inspired !
