Loved with Pen and Ink


Karen here with the first of my projects for May using Pen and Ink Kaisercraft collection.  I have to confess that when I saw this range I begged Chrissy to send it to me for my DT projects as it was so gorgeous and such a usable collection.

I cut a 1 inch frame from Vanilla cardstock and cut 1 inch from the top and one side of the Lacey paper.  On the spotty side I inked around the edges with Walnut Stain ink and mounted it onto the Vanilla frame.

I then used the Collage 6 x 6 stencil and some texture past in the top right and bottom left of my page.  I used crackle paste but this one would work just as well.


I rubbed some ink onto the top of the texture paste.


Next I cut a piece of the Vanilla card, saved from above, to 9.5 ins x 4, for a photo mount and used the stencil and Walnut Stain ink to give this a pattern.  I used foam pads to stick this to my page. 


I tore two pieces of Ephemera paper and trimmed them to 9.5 ins wide, inked the edges and added to my layout at the top and bottom of the Vanilla photo mount.

Next I cut three bingo cards from Stamps and added to the photo mount.


After adding my photos I tucked as many of the cards from the Collectables pack as I could fit under the pieces of Ephemera paper.


Finally I used a flower cluster and the word love from the Collectables pack to make my title.



Hi everyone,

Denise here with my final layout using the Little Darlings  Graphic 45 collection.

IMG_E8510I love the fact that there are some pastel colours in this collection together with some lovely vibrant blues and peaches so you can ring the changes.

I used the Bundle of Joy paper for my base, then covered it so just the edge was showing with the polka dot side of Rock A Bye.

Next, I used some texture paste through Crackle Stencil

Crackle Mini Designer Stencil

I then used some of the remaining papers to layer under and mat my photo.

I also used some stickers from the sticker sheet to embellish and some of the lovely chipboard elements.

I die cut and punched some leaves and flowers from the remaining papers and layered them on foam tape.


IMG_8488Most of the elements were inked around with with Bundled Sage Distress Ink

Finally I used some Soft Pink Rhinestones in the centre of my flowers .

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing a different collection of papers and the team will be back soon with some more inspiration.

Denise. xx
