Hello Everyone – I can’t tell you how delighted I am to be joining this mega talented Design Team! I have been crafting for many years now, making everything from cards to scrapbook layouts, jewelry to clothing, home decor to baking.
I don’t really have a “style” as I love to try different things from mixed media to die cutting, so, I am hoping to do justice to the beautiful Kaisercraft papers and products which we all adore.
For my first layout I have used the amazing Wanderlust collection which is quite apt as I am a Corporate Travel Agent in real life!
I started by gutting Wander to create a 1″ border then trimmed some Ivory card stock to 11″ and layered them. I love the splats that Tim Holtz Distress Stains give so used Faded Jeans, Dried Marigold and Antique Linen randomly from bottom left to top right.
A strip of Freedom was cut to 3 1/2 x 10 1/2″ and placed across the page about 3″ from the bottom. My main photo is trimmed to 4 1/2 x 3 3/4″ and mounted onto a 6×4″ piece of Found then covered with a Kaisercraft overlay distress edge acetate frame.
My phone has an app to create photobooth strips, so I fastened this to a leftover piece of Wander 2 1/4 x 9 ” added at an angle.
The stamps that come with this set are fabulous so I added some around the edge of the Ivory cardstock with some Tim Holtz Faded Jeans ink, which was also used on all edges of the papers. One of the 12×12″ sheets Exploration has lots of postage stamps and I found one which said Moscow – perfect for this layout – trimmed and added to the edge of my main photo.
I hope you have enjoyed travelling though this layout with me, check back later for some more wonderful inspiration from the Design Team.
