True Love – Always and Forever

Hello Everyone,

Linda here with another layout using the fabulous Always and Forever from Kaisercraft.

IMG_1018 smallI started with some Vanilla Kaisercard and one of my favourite Martha Stewart deep edge punches. This was layered onto Commitment which I gutted 2″ from the edge.

IMG_1021 smallMy photograph is 4×4″ square, matted with Licorice Kaisercard and Champagne Glitter card, and placed onto a 7″ square of Lovable, using the floral edge at the bottom and an 8″ square of Promise.

IMG_1020 smallI cut a doily from the Crochet gloss paper and tinted it with distress ink, then placed under the top right of the photo matts with a doily and sentiment from the Collectables.

IMG_1022 smallA lovely Lacey strip was added from the sticker sheet and a sentiment matted the same as my photo – this was raised on mounting foam tape.  Lots of beautiful roses were then cut from Eternal, shaped and raised on mounting foam tape, underneath my photograph. A sprinkling of Stickles to enhance.

IMG_1019 smallA smaller cluster was added top right of the photo. To finish I added gems to the outside punched edge, and some Sparklets to my photo matts.

Thank-you for taking the time to read, don’t forget to check back later for more beautiful pages from the DT.

Until then, take care,

Love is – Always and Forever

Hello Everyone,

Linda here with a card this time.

The Collectables with the Always and Forever  Kaisercraft collection have the most beautiful roses which cried out to be layered up and I decided to focus on these for my project.

IMG_1023 smallThe card base is 7 1/2″ square and I began with a piece of Commitment  7 1/4″ to leave a small border. Lovable was trimmed to 6×6″ and matted onto Coconut Kaisercard again with a small border. I  added a strip of lace from Sticker sheet across the middle and a doily  and sentiment from the Collectables. This was raised with some mounting foam tape.

IMG_1025 smallI cut a doily from the Collectables in half and placed bottom right and top left.

Next came lots of the roses which I have shaped and added with layers of mounting foam tape, plus a liberal amount of Stickles. Plus a love letter, also from the Collectables.

IMG_1024 smallBut, then I decided to change tack, I added 2 small black ad white photos of my husband and I and another smaller doily from the Collectables, put it in a frame and now it’s on my wall!

Truly Madly Deeply – Always and Forever

Hi Everyone,

Linda here with a layout using the beautiful Always and Forever by Kaisercraft. Is it just me or do you all want to sing the song now? (Must be my age lol!)

Anyway, I wanted to focus on the stamp set this time as it has the most beautiful rose image.

IMG_1012 smallI began with a sheet of Kaisercard in vanilla and stamped the bottom right corner with “always and forever” (singing again!” in black archival ink using the stamp set, plus “xo” around the edge. (XO = hugs and kisses in case you were unsure not OXO cubes 🙂 )

On a piece of smooth white card, I stamped “you + me” plus the rose six times. I tinted the words with Antique Linen Distress ink and trimmed, the roses were coloured with Spiced Marmalade, Carved Pumpkin, Dried Marigold, Peeled Paint and Forest Moss – blended together with a water brush. I left these aside to dry.

IMG_1013 smallOnto the papers now, I cut Romance 8×6″ and matted with 1/4″ border onto Kaisercard Licorice. Have you seen the stunning glitter card? Wow! I cut a piece of Champagne 6×6″ and backed it with Licorice also – in fact everything has been! Then a piece of Admire 5×6″. My photo is 4×4″.

IMG_1014 smallI cut two roses out in full, then just the bud and finally one petal, these were layered using mounting foam. I also cut extra leaves, one set to layer and one to embellish.

IMG_1016 smallA quick spritz of Antique Gold Kaisermist diagonally onto the Vanilla base, then I was ready to place all the layers. You can see they have been overlapped in blocks – I love the black borders as they separate and define the beautiful papers.

Truly Madly Deeply is from the Sticker sheet and I had to have more bling, so layered this and the “you + me” I’d stamped onto the Champagne and also Licorice, then theses were raised on mounting foam and placed onto the page to “anchor” down the roses and extra leaves.

Finally a touch of glitter pen to the rose petal and a couple of Coral Sparklets and I was done.

Thank-you for taking the time to read this, check back later for more inspiration from the DT.

Until then, take care,

~Linda~
