Be Bright – A Touch of Gold

Hi there!

The wonderful Touch of Gold collection is so great to use – it covers all occasions.


My base card was Kaisercard stock in Coconut. On top of the card I sprayed and flicked KaiserMist in Antique Gold. Its a beautiful gold, and really picks out the gold foiling in the papers used. I cut a strip of Lavish paper, distressed  and inked the edges in Squeezed Lemonade. For the boarder I used  papers from the Paper pad as they are foiled. The gold spray picks out the gold and blacks beautifully.


For the boarder I used the Decorative Die – Modern Doilie. It’s a very intricate die, with lots of detail to poke out. Because the dies is very intricate, it was a joy to use Kaisercraft Die Release Paper.  This releases the waste from the die easily.


The die cuts were cut in half and layered.  On top of the dies another paper was cut down and inked, the paper was Deluxe. From the collectables I choose the polaroid collectables, photos of my son and his girlfriend were cut to fit the apertures.  String was stapled to the Deluxe paper, from the string I used tiny pegs which I had painted white and hung my polaroid’s from. For the finishing touch I used a collectable, strips from the papers and a sprinkle of Bronze Rhinestones.

Stay Golden using A Touch of Gold

Hi there!

I am using the beautiful “A Touch of Gold” Kaisercraft collection for this layout.  I started with a sheet of  Kaisercraft Kraft cardstock.  I cut down a sheet of Deluxe, which was distressed and inked.  From the paper pad I used a sheet of the gold dots on black.  This was placed on top of the Deluxe paper.  I cut in half the Doily die-cut foil paper and placed it above and below the other papers.


I cut a strip of paper Classy paper, on top of this cut from a sheet of Sheen I used the Film Strip Decorative Die.


I then used a lot of the collectables and mounted them onto Mounting foam Tape.  All finished of with a sprinkle of Rhinestones in Bronze.    I love the way all the elements surrounds my sons photo.


Hope you enjoy my post!

Special Moments

Hi there!

This month I’m using the very versatile Collection A Touch of Gold.

For my first layout I’ve used a Christmas photo.  The card used for the base is Kaisercraft cardstock in Licorice.  I cut down a square of Pin Stripe Foil paper, and distressed the edges.  I drew a circle on the back of Christmas Words Foil paper, cut out and distressed.  The foil papers are a lovely thickness.  The circle I stuck down over the foil paper.  I cut strips of paper from the 6.5×6.5 paper pad.  I used the gold and star paper.  Also from the pad I used the boarders.  From the Deluxe paper I made a tag.  My photo was double mounted first on a sheet of Classy and a sheet of Razzle.  The photo was raised on Mounting foam Tape.  Finally I used Collectables and a sprinkle of Rhinestones in Bronze.
