“Memories” with Antique Bazaar

Hello everybody!

Emmy here sharing my first layout for May. This month I’ve got the great pleasure to work with Kaisercraft’s Antique Bazaar Collection, which is my personal favourite so far! The vintage look, the classic frames and time embellishments are just perfect for any heritage themed layout!


This is a picture of my grandmother taken ca. 1934 when she was at school. I recently found a whole box of pictures from my grand parents and their parents, and some of them are simply amazing! Luckily I’ve got Kaisercraft’s Antique Bazaar Collection to design with this month, so stay tuned – there will be more vintage layouts this month!

For my background I used Restore pattern paper – the grey side. I ruffled its edges using Tim Holtz Paper Distresser and then I mat the pattern paper onto Kaisercard Coffee Bean weave cardstockMI-memories-det-b

To alter the background further I used different Kaisercraft clear stamps – “Grunge” and “Postmarks”. The word “memories” I stamped with the Clear Stamps set matching the collection and Tim Holtz Mini Distress Ink Pad Tea Dye.

To create the dimensional pattern I used Kaisercraft Damask Quarters 12×12 Stencil and Ranger Ink Texture Paste.  Once the paste has dried, I sprinkled a bit of KaiserMist Spray Inks – Red and TurquoiseMI-memories-det-cMI-memories-det-h

I used the Paper Pad to create the layers under my picture. At the end of every Kaisercraft paper pad you will find four sheets with exclusive die cuts. I find the borders really useful when creating different colour/shape layers.


The clock faces, the framed quotes and the other embellishments are die cuts from the Collectables pack or fussy cut elements from pattern papers from the small Paper Pad or the Salvage 12″ pattern paper.


I hope you enjoyed today’s post!

Make sure to come back tomorrow for more inspirational projects from our design team!
