Hi Everyone, Today I would like to share with you a quick and easy multi photo layout using the Gums and Roses Collection. I wanted to challenge myself to use more than two photos on a layout this month, so I have created this layout to achieve that goal. I have also made my own flowers for this first time that are featured on this layout. I love the 3D effect that these flowers have.
To create this layout I have followed the steps below:
I then took the starfish card and the saying card from the Set Sail paper and tucked them beneath the photo with a piece from the 6″ paper pad too.
Once I was happy with the arrangement I took some cheesecloth and thick twine and layered them beneath the photo. I then added Kaisercraft Iceberg roses in mixed sizes and added the sea horse and starfish die cuts from the collectables pack and two die cut sayings from the 6″ paper pad too.
I then made a similar arrangement in the top cluster and finally added some Prima Art Stones and cracked sea shells in both clusters to finish the ‘beachy’ theme.
I hope you like what you see and it inspires you to use the die cut paper and the High Tide collection yourself.
As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to inset my photos within the circles (although of course it would make a lovely background mat too). I then set about choosing my series of photos (of my dogs, husband and my dear grand daughter Amber). The photos were taken back in the summer so I knew I wanted a nice summery background. The obvious choice was the fabulous reverse side of the 100s and 1000s paper from the Party Time collection pack with pretty bunting and clouds.
I then used more of the collection to fill in the remaining circles and added punched circles from the confetti paper too. I then added elements from the collectables pack together with a few strips from the collection too. I finished with a few co-ordinating buttons and journaled on the banner from the collectables pack with the metallic gel pens that I love so much.. I use them ALL the time!
Denise here with a layout using the gorgeous #Me Kaisercraft Collection, which was such fun to use.
I started off using Licorice 12 x 12 cardstock . I then used the Notes Die Cut Paper by cutting it down to 11 x 11 and scruffing the top bits up then placing it onto the black background card. Next I took the Achievement paper – I really didn’t want to cut into it as I loved it so much and it has a beautiful black and white polka dot pattern on the other side which I wanted to use too! I cut this down to 5 x 11 and stuck it onto the middle of the notes paper. I then matted my photo on to a piece of black patterned paper from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad and placed it onto the layout. I cut the manufacturer’s strip from the bottom of Belief paper with the wording across as I loved the sentiments , be kind, stay humble, smile often and placed this across the layout under the photo.
Then it was time to start adding all the bits…
This collection has such a good mix of papers and I couldn’t resist the urge to colour in some of the doodles, it was very relaxing after the layout was nearly finished to just colour in some of the elements. Kaisercraft do their own fabulous range of Gel Pens, which are ideal for this.
I added a cut out Burlap Butterfly – and black Rhinestones were then added to the middle of the the flowers. The #me & Limited Edition and Love Life sentiments were die cuts from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad.

The die cut element with this collection is a lovely Holly Wreath which I used as a base for this layout. I began with Decoration using the hessian effect side and raised the die cut on mounting foam. My photo is 4″ square, backed with Forest Kaisercard to create a small border, placed into the centre at a “jaunty” angle.
There are lots of lovely elements in The Collectables so I picked lots of foliage, decorative elements and round messages, inked some of the edges with Black Soot Distress ink, and set about added them to the wreath creating lots of dimension and interest with mounting foam.
