“Me Captured” with Close Up

Hello Kaisercraft fans!

And Happy New Year from the Netherlands! I hope you had lovely time with you family and friends and you are ready for the new year! Me, I decided to begin this year with a page about me and one of the things I love best – travelling and taking pictures. So, here it is:


This month I have the pleasure of working with one of the newest Kaisercraft collections “Close Up”. I really love this collection – it has all the right images and embellishments for the perfect “in the spotlight” layout!

I started with Kaisercard Coconut Weave Cardstock. I stamped the edge using Tim Holtz Mini Distress Ink Pad Kit 11 – Tea Dye and Kaisercraft Film Edges Clear Stamp. Then I trimmed 0.5cm from each side of the Lens pattern paper, ruffled its edges with Paper Distresser and adhered it with Kaisercraft 12mm double-sided tape onto the white cardstock.


To create the pattern on the background paper I used Clear Stamp Diamonds with Mini Distress Ink Pad Kit 3 – Black Soot. For the white dimensional pattern I used modelling paste and Tim Holtz Bubble Layering Stencil.


I layered my pictures on an orange paper from the 6.5″ Paper Pad and embellished them with different die cuts from the Collectables pack.


I also used some of the pattern papers from the “Close Up” collection to fussy cut some more pretty images, like the vintage camera (Focus pattern paper) on the picture below…


… and the film strip (Film pattern paper). I added two quotes from the 6.5″ Paper Pad in two of the “windows” of the strip and I stamped the word Dream in the third one (Clear Stamps Life Sentiments).


To finish off my design I added two stamped phrases using Kaisercraft Captured Moments Document Clear Stamp and Pearls Lush.


I hope you enjoyed today’s post!

Have a scrappy weekend!
