Treasured Memories – Finders Keepers

Hi Everyone,

Linda here with my last layout for April with Finders Keepers Collection from Kaisercraft.

IMG_0592 smallI began with some Coconut Kaisercard and gutted the centre 1″ from the edge, then stamped all the way round with the Scalloped Lace stamp and some Faded Jeans Distress Ink. It doesn’t give a crisp image but I quite like the effect on the textured card. Note to self – buy a new craft mat! Apologies! So the corners were tidy, I masked before stamping with a post-it note.

As the main background I chose Collectable, the script side, this was trimmed to 11″ . I have focused on the following pages – Collectors and Montage as sometimes it can be hard to use these so I thought I’d share some ideas.

The panel saying “Breathe it all in” fit perfectly with my photograph but as the words were not appropriate placed my photo here instead having matted it onto Cherry and Buttercup Kaisercard . Photo is 6×4″ with mats 1/4″ bigger. I added Buttercup 1/4 mat to the panel too and gutted the centre.

IMG_0593 smallFrom the sticker sheet I found a phrase that fit and layered it over the “love you forever” tag on Montage and also Cherry and Buttercup Kaisercard, you don’t have to use the words printed. It’s raised on mounting foam tape as is the Collectable which has been shaped and placed over the edge.

IMG_0596 smallI love the notice board  from Montage but the bicycle didn’t fit my layout so I tucked it under the edge as above. The Collectables has lots of little tags so I added these shaped with an Ice blue gem and a line of black pen to look like pins.

IMG_0594 smallA it of fussy cutting next to add floral embellishments to the corners from Curio with a spattering of Glitter glue.  Finally some gems in Lippy red and ice blue, plus some washi tape and I was done.

Thanks for taking the time to read this, check back soon for another layout by the team.

Until then, take care,
