Wise & Free – Uniquely Creative

Hi Everyone,

Chrissy here sharing a layout I created using the gorgeous “Wise & Free” collection from Uniquely Creative.


Uniquely Creative is an Australian brand that have just started to design their own paper collections. I love the first two ranges they have bought out, “Wise & Free” and  “Urban Garden”, they are perfect for fussy cutting!!!!!! So of course I love them.

Here is my layout I created using Wise and Free


Here are some quick instructions if you want to re-create my layout using the Wise & Free Paper Pack.

1.) Cut a piece of “Snow” Kaisercard down to 12 x 12 to form your base

2.) Cut the “Loved” UCP1906 paper down to 29.5 x 29.5cm, sew down the left hand edge, mat onto your layout.

3.) Cut the “Dream” UCP1902 paper (reverse side) down to 20cm wide x 29.5cm high, sew along the left & right hand edges, mat onto your layout.

4.) Cut a little strip from “Strong” UCP1905 paper spotty side about 5cm wide x 29.5cm high, mat onto your layout towards the left hand side.

5.) I have added a die cut doily border, if you have a punch add a punched border down the left hand side.

6.) Mat your photo onto some spare paper, then mat onto your layout.

7.) Fussy cut the pale flowers from “Fearless” UCP1903 papers & feathers and banners from “Potential” UCP1908. Arrange them around your photo, use foam pads to give some height, add Crystal bling to finish.

Here are some close ups…






Another layout will follow later using the rest of the paper pack.

Check out all our recently added Uniquely Creative products here, each collection has added matching card stock and extra embellishments.

Birthday Boy – Boho Dreams

Hi Everyone,

for my second project this month using Boho Dreams from Kaisercraft features the Dreamcatcher die cut paper.

Layout 15thFirst I adhered it to Free and trimmed around the edge with sharp scissors. Next, I cut a large circle from the centre of Wild (to save paper and also as I wanted to use the roses!) then stuck the two together and inked the edge with Faded Jeans.

Layout 2This is how the back looks – had I aligned it better this side could be decorated too.

Layout 6I wanted it to look as though the dreamcatcher had caught things so I cut my photo into a circle @ 3 3/4″ with a matt @ 4 1/4″ from Feathers and placed centrally with mounting foam tape (i should have shares in this the amount I use!)

Layout 4The Sticker sheet has lots of lovely feathers on it so I added paper to the back to reduce the stick, then tucked them into the pattern of the dreamcatcher and under the edge of the photo with the ends raised on foam at varying levels.

Layout 3These are the roses cut from the centre of Wild, cut out and layered with some extra leaves from the Collectables.

Layout 5Back to the Sticker Sheet for the word Smile which I stuck across the photo, plus a sentence which I divided and wove into the mesh. I edged the whole thing with a black micron pen as this adds depth, then a liberal splash of stickles and gems to finish.

Check back soon for more DT projects, until then, take care,
