My Year My Story – The Big Leap

Hello everyone,

Denise here with a layout from the fabulous My Year, My Story Kaisercraft Collection. This is a layout using photos that my son sent to me after he had completed a skydive whilst he was in New Zealand travelling last year. All I can say is I was glad he didn’t tell me before he went that he was going to do it !

12573124I started off with a sheet of plain white 12 x 12 cardstock then sprayed over it with some  Kaisermist  Olive Spray  to give it a green hue.

005I then took a page from the 6 x 8 paper pad together with some of the papers and cards from the Cactus colour paper in the collection to make a background.

006Next, I took the Month stamps and used the ‘January’ stamp as well as the ‘2015’ for last year and stamped into the left bottom corner of the layout These are always useful to have in your stash for any project.

009I also used the banner stamp by stamping on some green card, cut it out then added a saying into the  middle for another embellishment. 013After mounting my photos and adding them to the layout at angles I used lots from the Collectables pack to embellish the layout . From the Cactus Paper  the words ‘Live Out Loud ‘ for the title and cut up a journalling card to tuck the words ‘ My Pictures My Words My Story at the top left and the bottom right of the layout. Some of these were mounted on foam tape for dimension.

I’ve really enjoyed using this collection – don’t forget to  pop back for some more inspiration from the latest collections very soon
