Life is Precious – #Me


Hi Everyone,

Linda here with another layout using the beautiful #Me from Kaisercraft.

IMG_9941 smallI began by gutting a sheet of Licorice Kaisercard to 1″ from the edge, then trimmed Notes die-cut paper to create a small border.

IMG_9930 smallWith the leftover piece of Licorice Kaisercard, I cut to 4×6″ and embossed this and the smaller piece with Doodles folder. It gives such a beautifully crisp image!

IMG_9931 smallWith a small piece of cut-n-dry foam and white paint, I skimmed the surface to create a chalk board effect.  I added these together in a long strip to the left of the page.

IMG_9933 smallA sheet from the paper pad was inked and placed at an angle to the right and another to mat my photograph on to. This is 4×5″ with a small border using Brey Kaisercard.  These lovely banners and arrow are also from the pad, they are die-cuts at the back. I’ve raised them on mounting foam.  To disguise the join in the embossed pieces, I added a border from the sticker sheet and continued it across the whole page, plus more of the Burlap roll which I trimmed and frayed.

IMG_9936 smallMy flowers were punched with another sheet from the paper pad along with the large foliage. These were placed bottom left of my photograph once I had added faux stitching with a Black Micron pen. I used the threads pulled from the Burlap to tuck under the flowers and knot the buttons, then added some small white leaves to complete it.

Finally some stickers from the sticker sheet and Black Rhinestones, et voila – done.

I can’t wait to show you what I have to play with next – it’s soooooooo beautful!

Until then, take care,

~ Linda ~
