Double Trouble in Paradise with Sunkissed by Kaisercraft

Hello Merly Impressions fans,

Today I would like to share with you a fun, multi-photo, double layout that I created using the SUNKISSED Collection by Kaisercraft. I went for a fairly simple layout with few layers this time, however I add a little bit of fun mixed media. This is the perfect layout practice mixed media with because most of the back ground is covered in photos and any mistakes with it! Or if you love the background, you can simply use less photos. I have tried to capture a weekend trip to Palma, Mallorca, with this layout.MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-Double Trouble in Paradise- Picture1

To create this double layout I have used the instructions below:

  1. Take two sheets of KAISERCARD SNOW WEAVE CARDSTOCK and cut into three pieces 27.5, 24 and 4 cm wide and all 24 cm high.
  2. Take the smallest piece and add a leaf pattern by inking though TROPICAL LEAVES 6X6 DESIGNER STENCIL, using an ink blending tool with KAISERINK PAD – FOREST and KAISERINK PAD – BLUE HAZEMIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-Double Trouble in Paradise- Picture2
  3. Apply Distress Oxide- Lucky Clover, Distress Oxide- Mermaid Lagoon and Distress Ink- Peacock Feathers to an INKSSENTIALS CRAFT SHEET, spray with some water. Dip paper into the ink, repeat until you are happy with how it looks.MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-Double Trouble in Paradise- Picture3

A Great Aussie Christmas

Hi Everyone,

Today I would like to share a layout that I created using the UNDER THE GUM LEAVES Collection by Kaisercraft. This collection really inspired to hunt down some “Old Aussie Christmas” photo’s from my childhood. This double layout contains two photos from the Christmas Party my family attended every year at the Great Aussie Resort. Santa would come and give all the children presents and sometimes the adults too. For this layout I have gone for an Australian flora (and fauna) wreath which the emu and Kangaroo are holding up, similar to the Australian Coat of Arms. As this was the first time I had the chance to play with Kaisercrafts newer style sticker books, this layout also contains many of the stickers from this.

To create this Layout I followed the following steps:

  5. Take two photos (15.4 x 10.2 cm) and attach to the middle of the layout. Using the flower clusters in the STICKER BOOK – UNDER THE GUM LEAVES COLLECTION, stick them around the photos to create a wreath. Take the Cockatoo and Koala stickers and foam tape to the top and bottom of the wreath, respectively. Ink the edges of each sticker with an ink blending tool and DISTRESS INK PAD – AGED MAHOGANY.
  6. Take a green and a gold foil sheet from FOIL PAPER PAD – FESTIVE and cut with a Kaisercraft Flourish Die Cut (Suggestions: DECORATIVE DIE – DECOR FLOURISHDECORATIVE DIE – ORNATE FLOURISHDECORATIVE DIE – SWIRL FLOURISH). Cut each of the flourishes in half and swap to have a multi colour flourish and glue one to each side of the wreath, coming from 4  and 8 o’clock.
  7. Take the holy strips from the STICKER BOOK – UNDER THE GUM LEAVES COLLECTION and stick to the left edge and right edge of the layout, in the WILD FLORA – UNDER THE GUM LEAVES COLLECTION section.
