Making Memories with Boho Dreams

Hello everyone,

Denise here with my last layout using Boho Dreams Kaisercraft collection.

083My main focus on this layout is the Polaroid type frames. These can be used not just for photographs but also for journalling or other images.

I started with a sheet of Licorice Kaisercard. Next I took a piece of Young 12 x 12 paper and using the black and white stripey side punched around the page for a decorative frame.

I wanted to keep the colours simple as the background paper is so striking .

I took some Kaisermist in White and splatted in various places over the layout.

085I decided to use three Polaroid cut-outs, one large to frame my photo and two smaller ones to be used for journalling and an embellishment. I used papers from the 6.5 x 6.5 pad as bases under the frames.

083 (2)I placed my frames on the base – I wanted them to look ‘randomly scattered’!

Next I fussy cut some feathers from the Feathers paper and tucked them under the two smaller frames.

I took one of the wording sheets from the 6.5 x6.5  pad and cut some of the words that were perfect for this layout and placed them around the photo,some were layered on foam pads,some not.

I also fussy cut some flowers from the paper pad and layered those around the photo and frames too.077

076Finally, the camera and some other elements from the  sticker sheet were used as embellishments too.

I really enjoyed working with this collection and hope you will pop back for some more inspiration from the team very soon

Friends Forever – Boho Dreams

Hello everyone,

Linda here with my last layout using Boho Dreams by Kaisercraft for July.

IMG_1262 smallI began with Bohemian and tore some pieces away from the edge and down the side. These were lightly distressed using  a paper distresser. Behind these areas I added some Wander paper. My photo is 5 x 3 3/4″ mounted onto Denim Kaisercard with a small border, then onto a piece of Daydreamer 6 1/2 x 5 1/2″. I chose this section as the words worked with my layout. Next another border of Denim 7 x 8 1/2″ where I added a border with a Martha Stewart punch. Under the edge is a small piece of Feathers for contrast and the whole piece matted onto Avocado Kaisercard.

IMG_1265 smallLots of layers! Over the photo I added a couple of polaroid frames on foam tape. The words Smile (& #) plus Friends – Forever were cut from Daydreamer and added to the frames and above with more foam tape.

IMG_1263 smallLots of roses were cut from Wild, some tucked into the tears and some place around the matted frames.  Large flourishes were die-cut with Avocado Kaisercard and added under the photo matt.

IMG_1264 smallAll edges were inked with Faded Jeans Distress ink.

Don’t forget to check back later for more DT projects, until then, take care,

Girls Club with Boho Dreams

Hello everyone,

Denise here today with another layout using Boho Dreams Kaisercraft collection.

008My main focus in this layout is the Dream Catcher Die Cut Paper.

dreamcatcher-die-cut-paper-boho-dreams-collectionI am one who loves a bit of ‘fussy cutting’ so I decided to do some ‘back filling’ with this gorgeous die cut paper.

Firstly I took a sheet of wild paper and drew around the inside of one of the diamonds on the die cut paper.

128I cut enough diamonds to fill one round of larger diamonds and one round of smaller diamonds.

I then stuck mini foam pads all around the back.

129Next I stuck the diamonds using alternating patterns to the back of the die cut paper.

131Until it looked like this….

133I then placed foam pads all around the outer edge and stuck it to the brown side of Dreamcatcher paper.

I matted my photo on to some pieces of the Wild and Adventurer papers.

140Now it was time to crack open the Collectables and choose some to layer around my photo.

collectables-boho-dreams-collectionFinally I added a die cut dream catcher and paper flower and some journalling with white pen  to finish off.

008Thank you for popping by and hope you can come back to see some more inspiration from the team very soon.

Birthday Boy – Boho Dreams

Hi Everyone,

for my second project this month using Boho Dreams from Kaisercraft features the Dreamcatcher die cut paper.

Layout 15thFirst I adhered it to Free and trimmed around the edge with sharp scissors. Next, I cut a large circle from the centre of Wild (to save paper and also as I wanted to use the roses!) then stuck the two together and inked the edge with Faded Jeans.

Layout 2This is how the back looks – had I aligned it better this side could be decorated too.

Layout 6I wanted it to look as though the dreamcatcher had caught things so I cut my photo into a circle @ 3 3/4″ with a matt @ 4 1/4″ from Feathers and placed centrally with mounting foam tape (i should have shares in this the amount I use!)

Layout 4The Sticker sheet has lots of lovely feathers on it so I added paper to the back to reduce the stick, then tucked them into the pattern of the dreamcatcher and under the edge of the photo with the ends raised on foam at varying levels.

Layout 3These are the roses cut from the centre of Wild, cut out and layered with some extra leaves from the Collectables.

Layout 5Back to the Sticker Sheet for the word Smile which I stuck across the photo, plus a sentence which I divided and wove into the mesh. I edged the whole thing with a black micron pen as this adds depth, then a liberal splash of stickles and gems to finish.

Check back soon for more DT projects, until then, take care,

Shine with Boho Dreams

Hello everyone,

Denise here with two layered cards made using the fabulous Boho Dreams Kaisercraft Collection.

115-2 113-2I have always been fascinated with the concept of ‘dream catchers’ so I was really happy when this collection was released.

I started off using a piece of Coconut Weave Kaisercard. I cut it in half then folded the two halves to make two 6 x 6 card bases .

115-2For the first card I used Wild paper as my base. Next I layered strips of Wanderer using the lacy and floral sides on top of a layer of Toffee Weave Kaisercard.

I then took some of the collectables and layered the flowers, leaves, dreamcatcher and sentiments on to the card using foam tape .

collectables-boho-dreams-collectionFinally although you can’t see it very well on the photo I went over the flowers with Crystal Lacquer.

My second card was a 6 x 6; using the  white Kaisercard card as above.

113-2Next I used alternating layers of Free and Feathers papers onto the base. I then tore some of the papers and layered at the side of the card to add dimension.114I love feathers which are really popular at the moment so I used a couple of die cut feathers from the collectables pack. one of them I painted with watered down distress ink Cracked Pistachio to bring the green in, I also cut some out from what was left of the Feathers paper.

113-2I punched scallopped circles and cut banners from these papers too in order to add dimension. Finally I added sentiments and frames from the collectables using foam tape to finish off.

I hope you’ve enjoyed these cards and do pop back soon for some more inspiration from the team.

Boho Chic – Boho Dreams

Hi Everyone,

hope you are all well

The Merly Impressions retreat was last weekend, what a fabulous time we had – Thanks to Chrissy, Paul, Merley and Aman for all their hardwork!

For July I have the pleasure of working with BOHO Dreams collection from Kaisercraft and my first project was to make two cards.

40 DPI 3Both are 7×7″ square and were made as follows:

40DPIThe paper pad collection is perfect for card making and I love having a small white frame when using cards slightly larger. My base is Wanderer which I have left whole and inked the edges with Dried Marigold and a blending tool – don’t you just love these!

DPI 40 5Next came a circle @ 4 1/4″ cut from the reverse of Wanderer – the great thing about the paper pad is the are not double sided so you have more of each design.

Next the Collectables which have these lovely girlie images, she has been raised on mounting foam tape, then the frame over the top with a double layer of foam tape.

40 DPI 4I then added lots of feathers from The Collectables plus a spray of flowers and a message. They have been raised with various layers of foam tape to create a lot of dimension. Finally some stickles – we all need a little sparkle in our lives!

40 DPI 2Card two was created using Free as the background, with the woodgrain of Bohemian paper cut to 1″ strips and added around the edge to create a frame raised on foam tape. Pieces of Daydreamer and Free were cut to 3 x 3 1/2″ and placed inside at angles, topped with another lady from the Collectables and a raised frame.

dpi 40 7The other elements are also from the Collectables and have been layered with foam tape again at variable levels for definition.

dpi 40 6Thank-you for taking the time to read this post, please check back again soon for more projects from the DT.

Until then, take care,
