Blossoms 2015 – Finders Keepers


Hello Everyone,

Linda here with a layout using the fabulous new Finders Keepers collection from Kaisercraft which is perfect for the spring.

IMG_0472 smallMy page began with Ticket Gloss a specialist paper which, as the name suggests, is glossed – unfortunately its not clear in photos – and some Red Kaisermist.  There are lots of ways to use the mist, this month I spritzed the page. Holding your hand approximately 10″ above the paper (in your specialised mist station – aka pizza delivery box) and sweep across the area you want coloured.

IMG_0445 smallI then took the lid off and used the ink on the tube to splat by tapping the top.  You can leave it to dry naturally or use a heat gun to speed things up.

IMG_0449 smallI then cut a piece from Admit One 12 x 5 1/2″. cut around the tab and bottom of the flower on Ticket Gloss and slid  it underneath.  Next a piece 3 x 6″ of Treat was added to the right, followed by one row of camera’s from Snapshot right across the page.

IMG_0474 smallMy photo was trimmed to 4×4″ and matted with layers of Cherry Weave and Buttercup Kaisercard. This was added at an angle towards the left side.

I found a great phrase on Medley (do what you love) and matted it in the same way as my photo, then placed bottom right overlapping the picture.

Next a little stamping using the Scalloped Lace stamp, some black ink and the Treasures paper, you can create a length as long as you wish as it joins perfectly. I trimmed the edge and added along the bottom and top left of the Admit one paper.

IMG_0473 smallBlooms were cut from Curio the layered up bottom left of the photo. Don’t worry if the sprays are not repeated, just add a layer of a similar flower as you can above, it looks fine. I’ve used mounting tape for height.

I also added some of the Collectables – the tickets and floral spray to the right of the picture.

IMG_0475 smallLastly, a strip of words from the Sticker Sheet along the edge of the lace (above) and  copious amount of gems in Lippy Red and Ice Blue.

Thank-you for taking the time to read this, check back later in the week for more lovely pages from the Design Team.

Until then, take care,
