Emmy here today with my first layout for this month using the lovely Kaisercraft collection “True Love” (available at Merly Impressions online store). There is nothing better than a paper line filled with shiny hearts and great quotes to create with in the month of St. Valentine!For my background I used Kaisercard Licorice Weave Cardstock. I doodled the frame around it using Gelly Roll Pen, Medium Point – White. Then I cut off about 1cm from each site of My Honey pattern paper, ruffled it edges and adhered it on top of the black cardstock using Kaisercraft 6mm Double-sided Tape.
To alter even further my background I added a layer of Dina Wakley Black Gesso in the middle of my page and sprinkled KaiserMist Spray Ink – White and KaiserMist Spray Ink – Antique Gold on top.Then I adhered my picture to a 10x15cm piece of Kaisercard Coconut Weave Cardstock, ruffled its edges and adhered both of them to black pattern paper from the mini Paper Pad. Before I adhered them together I shaped the edges of the pattern paper with an edge punch and added an extra stripe of Kaisercard Coconut Weave Cardstock under it. I adhered all those layers using Kaisercraft 18mm Foam Tape.To decorate my picture I die cut different elegant shapes using glossy papers from the mini Paper Pad and various Kaisercraft cutting dies – Foliage, Flourish and Ornate Charm. I added also die cuts from the Collectables pack and I used a saying sticker from the 12″ Sticker Sheet as a title. For the flowers I used Mini Paper Blooms – Coconut and Paper Blooms – Terracotta, and a lot of different die cut leaves and swirls. To finish off my design I added a few Rhinestone Sparklets – Saffron.
Thank you for stopping by today!
Have a lovely weekend!
