Documented Scrapbook Layout

Good morning everyone.

Today I’m delighted to be bringing you a scrapbook layout using the wonderful sepia toned ‘Documented’ collection. I just love the warm tones of this collection and it’s just perfect for heritage layouts and school photo’s.. I’m sure we’ve all got plenty of those lying around just waiting to be scrapped.

However, today I’ve chosen to scrap some completely up to date photos to show how versatile this gorgeous set of papers are.

First, I took a page of Latte Weave Kaisercard and I used my  WRMK Stitch Piercer to create a grid pattern on the page. I then stitched it using two strands of the Brown Easy Floss. This left me with three square in each row measuring approximately 3.5″ x 3’5 inches.

I then took a sheet of Kraft Kaisercard and cut it into 3″ squares and stamped a few pieces using the Kaisercraft Vintage Ink Pad and the Documented Clear Stamp Set.

I then cut more layers of paper to place in stacks in each block measuring approximately 3 1/4″ . For these layers I used the 6″ paper pad and I selected the tape measures page, the typewriter keys, the library ephemera and the plain sepia leatherette page. I also punched one of the stamped pieces into a heart shape and used two photos to create the final layers on the opposite corner blocks and finished the other blocks with the stamped Kraft card. In addition I stamped a small piece of vellum to place over the finished clusters.

To finish I used lots of embellishments including Lucky Dip Wooden Shapes, buttons from my stash, stickers from the sticker sheet, a page from the paper pad, hemp cord, Natural Lace (currently in the sale) and some Sparklets from the Daffodil collection and some Natural Epoxy Stickers and some collectables from the Collectable Pack. I then finished it off with some heat embossed cardboard Thickers from my stash.

I do hope you’ve enjoyed this mini tutorial and that you’ll pop back next week to see my next layout using this collection..until then… Have a good week!

Mint Wishes Scrapbook Layout

Good morning all.

Thanks for joining me again on my journey into using the, most wonderful, Mint Wishes collection...another of my all time favourites (I know I say that nearly every month..lol)

image

Today I am bringing you a scrapbook layout that I started by using a piece of Coconut Kaisercard that I have stencilled using the Baubles Mini Designer Stencil and a Silver Ink Pad and an ink dauber.

image

I first gutted the card before stencilling it to create a frame for the layered papers so I could mount the photo on the remaining off cut together with a piece of Kraft Kaisercard.

Once I had stencilled all around the border, I took the Cabin Paper and cut it down to 10.5″ on each side. I then cut it diagonally and stencilled ‘snow’ using the Spotty 6″ X 6″ Designer Stencil to the top and bottom of the diagonal cut.

image

I then took the Flanelette Paper and cut it down on the top and the right hand side, ensuring I left the printed floral element intact. I also cut this piece diagonally. I then ‘chomped’ two sections of starry border punch from both pieces of paper and stuck them to the Bauble Background I had created and added a strip of silver washi tape from my stash.

I then took the Shiver Paper and cut two sections, using both sides, to layer behind my photo and distressed the edges and inked them with the Black Ink Pad. I then used Foam mounting tape to raise the photo so I could tuck fussy cut flowers from the Frosted Paper behind it. I also used a flower die cut from the collectables pack along with a couple of other collectables and several Little Birdie Flowers in amongst the fussy cut ones and some Holly die cuts from my stash together with a Rhinestone Flourish. I used the title ‘Love’ from the collectables pack too.

image

To give it a final flourish I then took Silver Glass Glitter and wet glue to add some extra sparkle around the centre of the flowers on the layout (with some Sea Breeze Rhinestone Sparklets) and on the punched sections of the border.

image

I hope this gives you some extra ideas to use up this wonderful  collection..although it’s nice to ‘stroke’ it’s even better to use it up!

Enjoy!

Basecoat IV scrapbook layout

Hi everyone,

Elaine here again bringing you a layout using the Basecoat IV collection and mixed media products.

imageTo start my layout, I took the Mini Mix Designer Stencil  and used the brick effect to create a diagonal line two thirds of the way across the page using the Ranger Texture Paste on the Bluestone Patterned Paper from the Basecoat IV collection.

imageI then cut several random bricks from the Brickwork Paper and mounted them on Mounting Tape to raise them above the stencilled pattern.

Next I took my photo and also mounted that on the same foam tape on the cut sections of bricks. I rounded the corners of my photo with a corner rounder for the authentic ’70’s vintage feel’! As it is from then..lol

I then took several collectables from the Generations Collectable Pack and arranged these around the photo. To give these a little extra interest I curled them around my fingers to give them a little dimension and used acrylic glue to hold them in place.

I then added several blooms from my stash, although similar are available here and included Aubergine and Terracotta mini blooms.

imageI then added Daffodil Sparklets and Bronze Rhinestones for a bit of glitz together with a smattering of Cheesecloth Gauze tucked into the clusters.

For the title I used another collectable from the Generations Pack and I then covered the photo for protection and added splatters of White Acrylic Paint, which I watered down and applied by tapping  the paintbrush towards the layout. When I removed the covering from the photo I finished the layout with some journalling on a die cut collectable.

This collection is so worthwhile to have in your stash as it is so versatile and is a wonderful way to use up your collectables..or why not treat yourselves to some new ones?

Enjoy!

Scrapbook Layout using the Bombay Sunset Collection

Hi again

Elaine here today to bring you a vibrant layout using the bright and cheerful Bombay Sunset collection. 

imageFirst I took a sheet of Kaisercard Splice Weave Cardstock and a 4″ strip of the Music Paper from the collection. I spliced the two together and trimmed the side of the yellow card to give me enough left to mat the photo. To do this I used some long neglected washi tape to secure the two spliced pieces of paper and card together.

I then created some layers using the reverse of the Rosewood Paper and each side of the Mumbai Paper. (Be sure to save the pretty floral element for one side of the Mumbai Paper for later!) Once these were stuck down I used some Turquoise Kaisermist spray and some Candy Kaisermist Spray over the background.

imageOnce dried I added a circle of pearls from my stash and used a strip from the Bombay Sunset sticker sheet over the join at the front of the paper and card above and below the layers of patterned papers. I matted the photo on the offset of yellow Splice card and used the fussy cut section of the remainder of the Mumbai paper from earlier for the base of my corner cluster.

imageTo create more interest I used a couple of mandalas from the collectables pack and layered these under the cluster with some cheesecloth and some Cherry Hemp Cord. For a final flourish I added some small Honey Kaiserblooms and a larger Fuchsia Bloom together with a Sea Breeze Rhinestone Sparklet and a couple of Daffodil Sparklets too. I used more collectables from the pack for the expression with the corner flourish and the title was made using alphas from my stash.

The saying beneath the photo was cut from a strip on one of the sheets from the collection pack.

I do hope this like this bright and happy collection as much as I do! Have fun with it!

Silly Selfie with Ubud Dreams

Good morning everyone,

Denise here with another project, a layout this time using the amazing Ubud Dreams Kaisercraft Collection.

104I loved some of the the wording die cuts in the Collectables pack this month and have had some silly photos of me for a while, so decided to make a page using one of them. It’s nice to scrapbook personal things once in a while isn’t it?

I started off by using the gorgeously detailed Kemala paper. I cut the middle out so making a frame and backed this with some Coconut Weave Kaisercard. Next I cut down a piece of Seafoam Kaisercard to 10.5 inches and placed it on the layout.

I  took another piece of Coconut Weave Kaisercard, cut it down to 10.25 inches and used a Punch around the Page to go round the outside edges and then stuck it on to the Seafoam card.

102I used some of the white card to mat my photo then placed it onto the layout on the left hand side towards the top and tucked some half doilies at each side. ( Always handy to have some doilies in your stash! )

Next it was time to use lots of Collectables to embellish the layout- some of these were as always with me raised up using foam tape.

097Together with some of the beautiful blooms in Sea Breeze. I also used some Rhinestone Sparklets in the middle of the patterned doilies from the Collectables.103I cut around some of the flowers so I could just tease them round a bit.

098I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project – there will be lots more inspiration from the team very soon!

Mini Book with Ubud Dreams

Good morning everyone,

Denise here with my first project using the divine Ubud Dreams Kaisercraft Collection. What a gorgeously interesting collection this is.

017I made a mini album to keep for me to as a special reminder of one of our son’s weddings last year. The colours of the papers were perfect for the wedding photos .

I started by using a piece of kraft card which I folded in half then folded the outside edges back on themselves in to the middle to make a ‘W’ shape.

004003Then I folded another piece of card in half and stuck all the folded edges together to make a book – I added a spine using Kaisercard in Grey

Next I covered the inside pages with selections of papers from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad

005Then it was time to decorate the front cover.

017I used a mixture of die cuts from the Collectables Pack, some co-ordinating mixed hemp cord and  a Rhinestone Sparklet.

Next it was time to add the photos together with some sticker embellishments and more Rhinestone Sparklets.

018

019

020I used some gorgeous mandala stickers and borders from the Sticker Sheet. I also used a colouring pencil from one of the new colouring pencil sets to colour a word that I die cut from my stash.

I used Sea Foam Kaisercard to mat my photos on and to put behind the white lattice arch die cut form the collectables.

I hope you like this little mini album. The papers are so versatile as there is scope for lots of fussy cutting,colouring in on some of the designs and plain papers too! I hope you’re inspired – I was !

True Love – Always and Forever

Hello Everyone,

Linda here with another layout using the fabulous Always and Forever from Kaisercraft.

IMG_1018 smallI started with some Vanilla Kaisercard and one of my favourite Martha Stewart deep edge punches. This was layered onto Commitment which I gutted 2″ from the edge.

IMG_1021 smallMy photograph is 4×4″ square, matted with Licorice Kaisercard and Champagne Glitter card, and placed onto a 7″ square of Lovable, using the floral edge at the bottom and an 8″ square of Promise.

IMG_1020 smallI cut a doily from the Crochet gloss paper and tinted it with distress ink, then placed under the top right of the photo matts with a doily and sentiment from the Collectables.

IMG_1022 smallA lovely Lacey strip was added from the sticker sheet and a sentiment matted the same as my photo – this was raised on mounting foam tape.  Lots of beautiful roses were then cut from Eternal, shaped and raised on mounting foam tape, underneath my photograph. A sprinkling of Stickles to enhance.

IMG_1019 smallA smaller cluster was added top right of the photo. To finish I added gems to the outside punched edge, and some Sparklets to my photo matts.

Thank-you for taking the time to read, don’t forget to check back later for more beautiful pages from the DT.

Until then, take care,

~ Linda ~
