Telegraph Road with Emmy

Hello Kaisercraft friends!

Emmy here today with a new project to share and a short tutorial on how to choose the right colours for your layout, using the amazing Kaisercraft collections.

The Kaisercraft paper lines have amazing colourful patterns and are perfect to use with any type of pictures. But every now and then, I would like to choose just a few colours from the collection to match my photograph better.

Today, I decided to work with the yellow, green and blue from the Telegraph Road paper line and I added dark brown stamped images and accents. I left out the pink and the red colour.


As you can see my picture works perfectly with this colour combination. It was taken a few years ago in Guatemala on top of one of the highest Mayan’s temples.

For my background I used the Collect die-cut glossy paper. I stamped the Timeless Postmarks clear stamp and Kaisercraft Brown Ink Pad. I added a bit of texture using the Tim Holtz Broken China distress ink pad and the Kaisercraft Distress Clear Stamp.


I carefully selected the papers (both 12 x 12″ and from the Paper Pad) and the die-cut elements from the Collectables package with the colours I wanted to use. To build the layers on my page I used paper from the Telegraph Road Paper Pad and Kaisercard Coffee Bean Weave cardstock.


MI-Friends-det-iI aged the edges of some of my layers using Tim Holtz Paper Distresser tool. The other I die-cut with Tim Holtz “Torn Notebook” on the edge die.

To embellish further my layout, I used die cuts from the Collectables package and fussy cut framed sayings from the Paper Pad.

It was really fun to look at all those pretty die cuts and select the ones, I needed. I also added some vintage flowers from Petaloo and blue roses.

I hope I managed to inspire you today!

Have a lovely week!
