“When in Rome” Layout using the Kaisercraft Lily and Moss Collection

Hello Lovely Crafty Friends,

Today I am sharing with you a layered love layout that I have created using Kaisercraft’s LILY AND MOSS Collection. These photos were taken in Rome, in front of the Trevi Fountain, where my boyfriend proposed to me! I originally thought the green colours in the photo’s perfectly suited this collection. However, once I printed the photos they contained too many other colours that did not suit, so I reprinted them in black and white. Therefore, the moral of this story is “Don’t underestimate the power of black and white photos!”. I also found that my engagement ring was not clearly defined in the photo’s so I added small rhinestones to make it “bling”.

Picture 1- When in Rome Lily and Moss Collection

To create this layered layout I have followed the steps below:

  1. Trim KAISERCARD DEW DROP WEAVE CARDSTOCK to 12 x 12 inch and ink the edges using KAISERINK PAD – FOREST and an Ink Blending tool. Stamp in KAISERINK PAD – FOREST the CLEAR TEXTURE STAMP – PAINT SPLATTER, at approximately 1 cm from the top and bottom.Picture 2- When in Rome Lily and Moss Collection
  2. Take PRIMARY – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION and rip the top and bottom to reach a size of approximately 26.5 cm high. Adhere to the middle of prepared Dew Drop Cardstock.  Rip the top and bottom of FLORA – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION to approximately 21 cm high. Randomly transfer TEXTURE PASTE through TINY TRIANGLES 6X6 DESIGNER STENCIL along the ripped edges of Flora. Adhere to the middle of the layout. Cut a strip of PINK PLASTER – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION that is two tiles high and 5 tiles wide, ink the edges using KAISERINK PAD – FOREST and foam tape to the centre of the layout.Picture 3- When in Rome Lily and Moss Collection
  3. Take two strips of  PINK PLASTER – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION, tuck under the Flora layer and adhere. Take two dark green strips, approximately  1 cm x 12 inch, tuck and foam tape under the large, central strip of Pink Plaster.Picture 4- When in Rome Lily and Moss Collection
  4. Tuck and glue some flourishes from FLOURISH PACK – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTIONCHEESECLOTH GAUZE and CURIOS – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION, under the layers you have created.
  5. Mat photos (7.2 x 9.6 cm) with the dark green sheet from the PAPER PAD – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION with dimensions of 8.3 x 10.9 cm. Rip the remaining park of the sheet in half diagonally and tuck under the central Pink plaster layer. Adhere the photos next to each other in the middle of the layout. Picture 5- When in Rome Lily and Moss Collection

Happiness looks Gorgeous on You with Kaisercraft’s Lily and Moss Collection

Hello Lovely Craft Friends,

Who would of though how versatile the LILY AND MOSS Collection was? For this layout I have focused on the bold greens and pinks in this collection as they really suit the photo I am using. I fell in love with the deep green used on the FLICKER – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION paper and decided to use it as the main background to layout. I also added some bold pink by painting the little wooden flourishes to further compliment my photo.Picture 1- Today's Moment- Lily and Moss Collection

To create this simple but cute layout I have followed the instructions below:

  1. Take FLICKER – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION and trim to 30.5 x 30.5 cm. Measure 4.5 cm from each corner and punch using your favourite punch. Take one dark green tile from PINK PLASTER – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION, cut into quarters diagonally and foam tape to each corner of the layout. Picture 2- Today's Moment- Lily and Moss Collection
  2. Apply TEXTURE PASTE through the TINY TRIANGLES 6X6 DESIGNER STENCIL to the centre of your page to approximately 6 cm from each edge.
  3. Take 4 pink strip stickers from STICKER BOOK – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION and adhere to the fancy corners of the page. Trim them to align with each edge.Picture 3- Today's Moment- Lily and Moss Collection
  4. Take the colourful triangle and green tile sheets from the PAPER PAD – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION and ink the edges with an Ink Blending Tool and KAISERINK PAD – FOREST. Foam tape the green sheet to the middle of the layout. Take the colourful triangle sheet, turn 45 degrees to appear as a diamond, and adhere in the middle of the layout.
  5. Adhere a photo with dimensions of 10.2 x 15.1 cm to the centre of the layout. Cut the large white frame from CIRCULAR – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION and ink the edges with KAISERINK PAD – FOREST. Use MOUNTING FOAM TAPE to adhere the frame over the photo.Picture 4- Today's Moment- Lily and Moss Collection
  6. Cut two pink sentiments from CIRCULAR – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION and frame with a pink and green swirl sheet from the PAPER PAD – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION. Adhere one sentiment to the top left of the photo and the other to the bottom right.
  7. Fussy cut the Lilies from FLORA – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION and embellish the layout with them.
  8. Further embellish with the butterflies from the STICKER BOOK – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION and the COLLECTABLES – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION. As well as, the two pink square-shaped flourishes from the  COLLECTABLES – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION.

Birthday Tea Party with Oh Happy Day

Hello, Karen here with my final project for January using the Oh Happy Day collection from Kaisercraft.

This time I decided to make a multi-photo layout using lots of Curios, Collectables, Stickers and pop-outs from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad.  They were perfect for clustering in a circle around my five photos.

Birthday Tea Party

For this layout I have used Party Popper, 100’s and 1000’s and Starlight 12 x 12 papers,  Curios, collectables, sticker book, 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad, Lemonade Kaisercard,   Sea Breeze Alpha silver rhinestones  and Fireworks stencil.

I started by cutting the  Party Popper and 100’s and 1000’s paper diagonally and then cutting .25 in from both the straight sides.  This was adhered to the Lemonade Kaisercard with a .5 in wide piece of Starlight covering the join.  I drew a pencil circle on the middle of my page and added the words ‘Birthday Tea’ using Sea Breeze Alpha.IMG_1952

I added my five photos to the circle then used the  Fireworks stencil and some texture paste to add little bursts to my page.  I only spread the paste through individual bursts so that I was able to easily determine where they would be placed.

IMG_1982

All that remained was to fill in the circle around my photos using stickers, pop outs from the 6.5 x 6.5 sticker book, collectables, elements cut from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad and I cut the words from some of the bingo cards on the 100’s and 1000’s paper.  I also dotted some silver rhinestones around the page. IMG_2060

To finish my page I added three Curios to the centre of three of the bursts.

IMG_2061 IMG_2063

The ‘Party’ banner, from the collectables pack, was a perfect finish to my page.

Happy Birthday with Oh Happy Day

Link

I have to say I am loving working with the Oh Happy Day collection and love the bright, cheery colours and the retro patterns on the papers which all have beautiful gold foiling.  I have used it to make a multi photo layout documenting Gracia’s 18th birthday, which was 8 years ago!

finished layout

For this layout I have used Snow Weave Kaisercard, Time to Party, Fire Cracker, Garlands and Star Light 12 x 12 papers, collectables, curios, sticker book6.5 x 6.5 paper pad and Mounting Foam Dots.

I started by cutting .5 in from two adjacent sides of the Time to Party paper, which I then stuck to the Snow Weave Kaisercard.  On top of this I added a piece of Fire Cracker which I had cut to 9ins square, finally to this I added a 8.5in square piece of Star Light.

IMG_1885

I mounted my photographs onto some scraps of white card.  I used four 2in x 3in photos and one 3in x 4in.   These were added to the bottom of my paper with the bottom of the photo mounts lined up with the bottom of the Star Light paper.  Next I fussy cut the ‘Happy Birthday’ penant from the Garlands paper and added to the bottom of my page with a Curio at the point where the two words meet. A border from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad was added above the three right hand photos.

I stuck the ‘Wishing You The Best Day Ever’ sticker to a scrap of card, along with the pennants (both were from the sticker book)  and cut them out with a thin white border.   These were added to the top of my page with a star, also from the sticker book to either side of the pennants.

IMG_1896

I typed my journaling onto a word document and adhered a page from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad onto a piece of A4 card and fed this through my printer to get the text printed onto the blue paper.

IMG_1886

IMG_1894

Once I had cut my journaling into strips and added to my page.  I subsequently realised I had ‘and Josh’ twice and have snipped off the second one.  I added a cluster of phrases to the top right of my photos using collectables, a pop out from the  6.5 x 6.5 paper pad and a ticket also cut from the paper pad, finishing off with a curio and star.

IMG_1892

I completed my page by adding collectables and stickers to my photographs.

We would love to see what you have made with this collection and you can post your makes on the Merly Crop Facebook page.

Life is Beautiful with Grand Bazaar

Hi fellow crafters,

I was very excited to receive the GRAND BAZAAR collection to work on for this month. As soon as I saw it, I just knew I had the perfect photos to scrap using it! I think this collection is good for many different types of projects, from love photos, to adventures and childhood memories. It also very suitable for Male layouts and all sorts of greetings cards. This collection has many colours which can be used all together in a project or separated to focus on just 2 or 3 colours. I found that my photos suited the more selective type of colours. For this layout I have selected the red and black to emphasise passion. It also compliments the colours of photo which are mainly white and black with red highlights.Life is Beautiful with Grand Bazaar 1

To create this layout I have followed the steps below:

  1. Take KAISERCARD RUBY WEAVE CARDSTOCK, trim to 12 inch x 12 inch and distress the edges using a PAPER DISTRESSER.
  2. Cut KAISERCARD INK WEAVE CARDSTOCK to 28 x 28 cm, distress the edges and adhere to the centre of the of the Ruby Cardstock.
  3. Take two pieces of FOLKLORE and trim both to 27 x 27 cm. You will use the red side of one and the black side of the other.
  4. Measure along the top FOLKLORE (red) at 10, 17 and 24 cm and mark with a pencil. Now measure and mark the same distances along the bottom. Draw a faint line connecting the marks vertically.
  5. Along the sides repeat the step above at 15 and 22 cm. Connect the pencil marks vertically.
  6. Erase the lines after the first vertical line (going top to bottom) meets the first horizontal line (from left to right). Using scissors to cut along the lines. You should be left with 1 x rectangle and 2x reverse L shaped pieces. Check the full layout photo to get a better understanding of the shape. Distress the edges of each piece.
  7. Next measure, and mark with a pencil, along the top FOLKLORE (black), 13.5  and 20.5 cm. Now measure and mark the same distances along the bottom. Draw a faint line connecting the marks vertically.
  8. Along the sides repeat the step above at 18.5 and 25.5 cm. Connect the pencil marks faintly.
  9. Repeat Step 6. You should be left with 2 x rectangle (one normal and the other tall and thin) and 1x reverse L shaped pieces. Distress the edges of each piece.
  10. Take the tall thin piece of FOLKLORE (black) and adhere to right side of the Ink cardstock, about 5 mm from its edges. Take the largest FOLKLORE (red) reverse L shaped peace and attach it over the right side of the black piece but also ~5 mm fro the edge of the Ink cardstock. Repeat with each black and red  FOLKLORE piece, alternating, until you fill the middle of the Ink cardstock. Life is Beautiful with Grand Bazaar 2
  11. Take a photo with dimensions of 8.7 x 13.7 cm and mat with two cardstock pieces, one cut from KAISERCARD RUBY WEAVE CARDSTOCK and the other from KAISERCARD INK WEAVE CARDSTOCK, with the same dimensions. Attach to the top left hand corner of the layout, ~ 4 cm from the edge of the layout.
  12. Fussy cut the flowers and leaves from BOHO PAISLEY and layer the from the top left to bottom right of the layout.
  13. Embellish with red flowers, flourishes and quotes from the COLLECTABLES – GRAND BAZAAR COLLECTION and STICKER BOOK – GRAND BAZAAR COLLECTION, CURIOS – GRAND BAZAAR COLLECTION, and MINI PAPER BLOOMS – RUBY.

Exploring the Beach with Uncharted Waters

Hi Everyone,

I have created this busy, beachy, technique filled, double layout using the lovely UNCHARTED WATERS collection by Kaisercraft. This collection is gender neutral, making it perfect for all beach themed photos. I just love this collection with all the shells, beach creatures and boat related items! Since blue is my favourite colour, I love this collection for its colours too and because it is very suitable to co-ordinate in those mixed media effects. I thoroughly enjoyed incorporating oxide inks, background stamping, texture pasting, fussy-cutting, paper ripping and cheesecloth tucking techniques in this project!

Explore the Beach with Uncharted Waters 8

To create this layout I followed the steps below:

  1. Create a background using 2 pieces of KAISERCARD IVORY PREMIUM CARDSTOCK cut down to 30.5 x 30.5 cm and randomly stamping the ship’s  wheel from the CLEAR STAMPS – UNCHARTED WATERS COLLECTION in KAISERINK PAD – CHOCOLATE over the layout.
    Explore the Beach with Uncharted Waters 1
  2. Use an INKSSENTIALS CRAFT SHEET or baking paper for background inking techniques and a mix of blue Distress Oxide and RANGER DISTRESS INK PADS. Using the oxide inks first, take the darkest and smear it in a line on the craft sheet spray water on top of the ink. Take the ivory card stock and dip it in the watery ink, turn over and dry using a craft heat gun or hair dryer. Apply the rest of the ink and repeat drying. Excess ink can be removed using a wet cloth. Explore the Beach with Uncharted Waters 2
  3. Repeat with each colour, layer over the previous and adding the Distress Ink last
    Explore the Beach with Uncharted Waters 3
  4. Tape the two Ivory sheets with home-made background together to create a double sized layout. Cut two 6.5 cm strips of STREAK – UNCHARTED WATERS COLLECTION and adhere to the two short sides of the layout. Cut a 14 cm strip from the bottom of TIDE POOL – UNCHARTED WATERS COLLECTION slowly and gently rip this strip in half diagonally using your hands. Attach one piece to the top left and the other to the bottom right of the layout. Take the left over strip of TIDE POOL – UNCHARTED WATERS COLLECTION and also rip it diagonally and tuck each piece under the other corner pieces to create a layered effect.
    Explore the Beach with Uncharted Waters 4
  5. Take HOOK – UNCHARTED WATERS COLLECTION and hand rip different sized pieces. Layer these pieces under the wooden sections on the top and bottom of the layout.
    Explore the Beach with Uncharted Waters 5
  6. Fussy cut the two middle ropes from SEA SHORE – UNCHARTED WATERS COLLECTION, cut in half and foam tape next to each other over the two STREAK – UNCHARTED WATERS COLLECTION sections of the layout, ~0.5 cm apart. Take a sheet of CHEESECLOTH GAUZE and colour with KAISERMIST SPRAY INK – GOLD SHIMMER 50ML, allow to dry and then cut into strips to tuck under the ripped layers. Also use this coloured cheesecloth to matt the photos. I have used three 9.5 x 13.4 cm photos and tucked them under the ripped sections.
    Explore the Beach with Uncharted Waters 6
  7. Fussy cut the crabs and shells from OCEANIC – UNCHARTED WATERS COLLECTION and embellish layout. Embellish with CURIOS – UNCHARTED WATERS COLLECTION and stickers from the STICKER BOOK – UNCHARTED WATERS COLLECTION
    Explore the Beach with Uncharted Waters 7
  8. Transfer the pattern of BUBBLES 6X6 DESIGNER STENCIL onto the wooden sections of the layout using TEXTURE PASTE. Further embellish layout with more stickers from the STICKER BOOK – UNCHARTED WATERS COLLECTION and COLLECTABLES – UNCHARTED WATERS COLLECTION.

Seaside Adventures with Uncharted Waters

Hello, Karen here with the first of my projects using Uncharted Waters. It seems strange working with seaside photos when its cold and frosty outside!  For my first project I decided to use an embroidery hoop as a frame for my home decore – I have seen several of these used in this way recently, and was itching to have a go.

IMG_1351 I cut a circle from Pelagic which was .5 inch larger than my inside hoop. To this I added a torn piece of Seashore to the bottom, I though this would look like sand.   Than I snipped all around the edge of the circle and secured it into my hoop.

I used White Iridescent Kaisermist to add splatters all over the papers.

IMG_1309

I placed a frame, from the collectables pack, to the top left of my photo and  a ‘Wild and Free’ sticker from the Sticker Book.

I then used phrases from the collectables pack and the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad to create a cluster at the top left of my photo, finishing the cluster with a curio.

IMG_1353

On the top left of my frame I used starfish and shells from the collectables pack and the Sticker Book.  I used a die, from my own stash, to cut some ‘seaweed’ from a page out of the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad.

IMG_1352

At the bottom of my frame I used collectables and wooden fluorishes, which were raised on foam pads, together with two more pieces of seaweed.

IMG_1354

Finally I used a phrase from the Shallows paper for my title.

IMG_1356

I really enjoyed making this project and can’t wait to show you what I have made for my second project this month.

Until than I hope you can find some crafty time and I hope I have inspired you to try something different with the Uncharted Waters collection.

Living a Creative Life

Hello Everyone,

Today I am sharing a layout that I have created using Kaisercraft’s CRAFTERNOON Collection. I was excited to use this collection! I think it is very versatile and it just perfect to capture and record those creative memories, especially for those photos that are a little more difficult to use with “just any collection”. For this layout I have decided to focus on the greens in this collection which coordinate with the green that I have highlighted in my black and white photo. I really wanted to use this collection to scrapbook this photo of my best friend because she opened my eyes to the world of scrapbooking, before I was only a card maker! I was able to easily use the doily patterns, a lace side punch and paper blooms to make this layout quite elegant to match the photo. This highlights the versatility of this collection.

To create this layout I followed the steps below:

  1. Trim CUT AND PASTE – CRAFTERNOON COLLECTION to 30.5 x 30.5 cm. Using TEXTURE PASTE transfer the pattern from QUILTED 6X6 DESIGNER STENCIL 1.5 cm from the left-hand side and 4 cm from the right-hand side.

Creative Happiness

Hello Everyone,

I think it is very versatile and it just perfect to capture and record those creative memories, especially for those photos that are a little more difficult to use with “just any collection”. The photo I have used in this layout is the perfect example, it shows a gorgeous creative moment between an cheeky uncle and his sweet niece. I was able to easily use a more mixed media style for this photo which also complements the busy patterned background paper. The CRAFTERNOON Collection incorporates a great mix of colours, again making it very versatile, and for this layout I have chosen to focus mainly on a peachy orange colour and black to perfectly contrast it.

  3. Take a 10 x 14 cm photo and frame with 11.5 x 15.5 cm piece of KAISERCARD INK WEAVE CARDSTOCK. Distress the edges of the paper using a PAPER DISTRESSER. Stitch the frame in peach coloured thread on the edge of the photo. Foam tape photo to the centre of the layout. Embellish the top-right and bottom-left corners of the photo with peach/orange coloured doilies from PAPER PAD – CRAFTERNOON COLLECTION and CROCHET – CRAFTERNOON COLLECTION. Embellish further with COLLECTABLES – CRAFTERNOON COLLECTIONCURIOS – CRAFTERNOON COLLECTION and peach coloured twine.
