Memories Documented with Anthology

Hi everyone,

Denise here with my first layout using the Anthology Kaisercraft Collection.

This collection is beautiful, I love the way it is botanical but also has an old fashioned vintage look to it. As soon as I saw the map and nautical elements I knew I wanted to use a photo of my dad when he was in the navy.

I decided to use the Ornithology paper as the background to my layout and also decided to leave the strip at the bottom with the wording. I was sent a lovely Filmstrip stencil to use so I Inked  through it down one side of the layout with Bark brown ink. I gutted the paper so there was an approximate 8 inch square to use for matting my photo and also to make a banner.

After this, I took the paper with the map on and cut it out, then mounted it on to the background after distressing the edges with a Paper Distresser.

The compass at the bottom looks almost 3 dimensional.

Once this was done I matted my photo with the paper I had gutted from the middle and added the banner, I only adhered three sides of the mat as I wanted to tuck  some of the Collectables die cuts inside  for my journalling.

I tore a triangle roughly on the edge of the map then tucked some of the collectables underneath it.

Finally I added some Crystal Laquer to the compass and watch faces around the photo and added some journalling to the bottom and used Memories Documented from the Sticker Sheet as my title .

I really did enjoy making this layout and can’t wait to use some more of it.

Sweetest Memories with Fleur

Hi everyone,

Denise here with another layout using the fabulous Fleur Kaisercraft collection.

I used many stickers from the Sticker Sheet as well as lots of die cuts from the Collectables pack on this layout.

Firsly I used a sheet of Licorice weave cardstock as the base of my layout. Then I used a combination of papers to mat on to the card base. I used XOXO ( the pink side and the stripey side ) together with the pink and gold spotty Loveable paper. I decided to sew some stars on to the pink floral side of the Loveable paper so I pierced two stars then stitched them with some green thread.

I then cut out  tiny stars to go inside . I also flicked  some Antique Gold Kaisermist over the pink florally paper.

Next I layered some papers from the 6.5 x6.5 paper pad under my photos and distressed the edges, using a paper distresser tool.

I used lots of elements from the Sticker Sheet and Collectables to embellish the layout.

Just to finish off I dotted around the edges with a white pen .

This is a really lovely collection to work with, I hope you have enjoyed this as much as I enjoyed making it.
