“Truly, Madly” with XO

Hello Kaisercraft friends!

Emmy here today with a brand new layout to share. I can’t believe it is February already… Where did January go? Time does fly when you are having crafty fun!

This month I have the pleasure to work with the newest and most romantic Kaisercraft collection “XO”. The soft colours of this paper line make it perfect for any romantic / lovable picture you might have. I decided to work with a picture of my kids and their niece from our last photo-session.


As you can see, I used a lot of Kaisercraft stamps on this layout and a lot of different embellishments. And here is how I did it…

I started with Kaisercard Licorice Weave Cardstock. I stamped its edge with Film Edges Clear Stamps and White Ink Pad. I left the cardstock to air dry and took the Madly pattern paper. I cut out 1,5 cm from two sides and ruffled its edges with a Paper Distresser. Then I stamped the corner images using “Hummingbird” clear stamps set and Mini Clear Stamp “Knowing You” with Black Ink Pad.



Then, using Tim Holtz’ Layering Stencil Hearts and modelling paste, I created the dimensional pattern on my background. After the paste has dried I splattered Glimmer Glaze Black Olive on top of it.

MI-truly-madly-det-fTo create the layers under my picture I used small pattern papers from the 6.5 x 6.5″ paper pad and different punches. I adhered my picture with Kaisercraft Double-sided Tape and embellished it with die cuts from the Collectables pack. I stamped the phrase Love This, using Black Ink Pad and Kaisercraft Love This Clear stamps from the Something Blue collection.


… stickers from the 12 x 12″ Sticker Sheet and rhinestones from Kaisercraft Rhinestone Strips – Island Lagoon. I also added different size pearls Champagne colour.


To finish off the composition around my picture I added a few Mini Paper Blooms Fairy Floss.


For my title I used die cut words from the Collectables pack. To adhere them I used Mounting Foam tape.


Then I stamped the butterflies on a pink pattern paper from the 6.5 x 6.5″ paper pad. I used Kaisercraft Butterflies Clear stamp and Black Ink Pad. I added a stripe with Liquid Pearls in the middle and Stickles Glitte Glue Diamond on the wings.


To finish off my design I added a few love arrows, stamped with  Black Ink Pad and XO Clear stamp set.

MI-truly-madly-det-iI hope I managed to inspire you today!
