Life is Better with You layout with Memory lane

Hello Kaisercraft fans!

Emmy here today with my last post for June. This week I decided to design my own background paper, using pattern papers from Kaisercraft’s Memory Lane collection (available at Merly Impressions’ online store).


For my background I used two pattern papers – Jade Jewel and Raw Wood. To distress their edges I used Paper distresser and a piercing tool. First I adhered the panel from the Raw Wood pattern paper on a Kaisercard Kraft Cardstock. Using Waffle 6×6 Designer Stencil and Texture Paste, I created the white dimensional pattern. Then I adhered the second pattern paper panel using Kaisercraft 12mm Double-sided Tape and sprinkled  KaiserMist Spray Ink – Antique Gold and White on top.MI-life-is-better-det-a MI-life-is-better-det-b

I decided to use half of the gorgeous Shutters die-cut paper as a ‘frame’ for my picture and sentiments. I added cut-off quotes, fussy cut flowers from a glossy pattern paper from the Paper pad and pre-cut embellishments from the Collectables Pack. I adhered everything to the background using Mounting Foam Tape.

To decorate my page further I added flower clusters using Paper Blooms – Sage and Mini Paper Blooms – Coconut. To die cut the foliage I used Kaisercraft Decorative Die Mini Foliage, Kaisercard Coconut Weave Cardstock and greenish pattern paper.

For the sentiment next to the ‘frame’ I used pattern paper from the Paper pad and from the Lakeside pattern paper


As a final touch I added Rhinestones – Mint Green, Rhinestones – Silver and Pearls – Pearl.

I hope I managed to inspire you today!

Keep creating!

A Happy Life with Memory Lane

Hi everyone,

Denise here today with my final layout using the lovely Memory Lane Kaisercraft collection.

IMG_1645resized banner

I wanted to use the muted browns and beige colours of this collection for something different so started by using a piece of Kraft cardstock.

I then gutted a piece of Lakeside paper to leave a one inch frame so I could use the middle for matting then  used a punch around the page to make a pretty edge. This was then adhered to the kraft background.

Next I cut some varying layers of papers including two from the 6.5 x 6.5  paper pad and two from the 12 x 12 collection, Jade Jewel and the lacy side of Villawood.


I distressed the edges with a distressing tool first, then laid them on the background to see how I liked them. Once I was happy I mounted  them on to foam tape to add depth.

My photo was mounted on to an embossed paper from the 6×6 pad .

Next, I used some Kaisermists in black and pale green to add some colour to the background


I wanted to get a vintage kind of look to this so used some Frayed Burlap distress ink around the edges of the embellishments and papers.

I love to tuck things under edges and used some of the little tags from the 6 x 6 pad and flowers from the Collectables to embellish around the layout.



I also punched some little brown stars from the paper to use as embellishments.

I used some hemp twine to wrap around the paper and through the tag and some star Epoxy Stickers to finish off.

It was nice to change it up a bit and use a different colourway of  this versatile collection and hope you are inspired !


Inspirational Journal with Memory lane

Hello Kaisercraft fans!

Emmy here today with a brand new creation to share with you. As you may remember from my previous post, this month I have the pleasure to design with Kaisercraft’s most recent collection Memory Lane (available at Merly Impressions’ online store).

This collection has an amazing Shutters die-cut paper. I decided to use a part from this paper and many lovely quotes to decorate the front of a custom-made inspirational journal.

MI-journal-web530For my background I used a  panel from Villawood pattern paper, slightly bigger than the front cover of a normal notepad. I inked its edges with Ink Pad – Bark, distressed its edges using Paper distresser and a piercing tool. Then I adhered the pattern paper using Kaisercraft 12mm Double-sided Tape.

I added a cut-off quote at the bottom of the cover and stamped the brown pattern using Ink Pad – Bark and Clear Stamp – Diamonds.


While waiting for the ink to dry, I cut off a similar size panel from the Shutters die-cut paper, adhered White Lace behind the ‘windows’ and adhered it using Mounting Foam Tape to the background.

I took the quotes from the Lakeside pattern paper and the Paper padMI-journal-det-c MI-journal-det-b

To decorate the front cover, I used pre-cut elements from the Collectables Pack and the Paper pad. I shaped the green blossoms with an Embossing Tool and adhered them around my design using Mounting Foam Dots.MI-journal-det-d MI-journal-det-eAs a final touch I added Pearls – Pearl  and wooden shapes from Flourish Pack – Antiques.MI-journal-det-f MI-journal-det-g

You are Special with Memory Lane

Hi everyone,

Denise here today with my second layout using the Memory Lane collection.

IMG_1455-resized banner

This is a beautiful delicate collection and I’m really enjoying working with it,I’ve used lots of Collectables from the collectables pack on this layout.

My base was a sheet of Spring Breeze paper. I used some pale green shimmer paint through a Diamond stencil to add some colour to the background. Next I pierced holes all the way around the edges with the Sew Easy Piercer then stitched with some pale green thread. I’m loving sewing on layouts at the moment !

Next I took two papers from the 6×6 paper pad,cut them to size then distressed the edges with a paper distresser and matted them behind my photo which I placed over to the left on the layout.IMG_1455


I then started to place my collectables around the photo and on the layout and once happy adhered them with a mixture of glue and foam tape.


I also used some  Sea Breeze Epoxy Stickers a embellishments using two teardrops together to make hearts.



This is a lovely delicate collection and I’m looking forward to making  another project with it soon .

Wedding day with Memory Lane

Hi everyone,

Denise here with my first project using Memory Lane Kaisercraft collection

IMG_1311resized- banner

The feature on this layout is the gorgeous ‘Shutters’ die cut. I used a sheet of Raw Wood paper using the pale green side for the background. Next I took the Shutters die cut and pierced the pattern through a Fern stencil, then stitched it, very relaxing !


I flicked some Aqua Kaisermist over the pale green background, then placed my photos in the correct places to show through the windows of the shutters then adhered them to the background. I then mounted the Shutters die cut on to some foam tape then placed it on the background.IMG_1261

I used the Sketched Heart Decorative die to die cut some hearts from paper from the 6×6 pad Photo 06-06-2018, 17 38 17

I also used some of the foliage from the Floral Cluster Decorative Die to embellish stamped flowers and flowers and tags from the  Collectables .

To add finishing touches to the layout I added some mint green gems to the centre of the flowers and dotted around at the top of the layout.

Lastly I flicked some White Kaisermist over the shutters and flowers.

This is a really lovely collection and I’m looking forward to making some more projects with it.
