Forever in my Heart with Indigo Skies

Hello Kaisercraft fans!

Can you believe that it is May already? Where did the time go? This month I’ve got the pleasure to work with the absolutely amazing Kaisercraft collection “Indigo Skies” (available at Merly Impressions’ online store), which is perfect for the lovely spring weather of May.

Today, I’ve prepared a brand new layout to share with you with a short tutorial on how to alter your background paper using Clear Texture & Background Stamps.

Step 1: Punch one of the edges of the Choose Happiness die-cut foil patter paper and layer it on top of Kaisercard Navy Weave Cardstock. Adhere both layers with Kaisercraft 12mm Double-sided Tape.MI-forever-in-my-heart-det-a (1)Step 2: Mark the position of your pictures with a pencil.
