Kaisercraft Lady Like Layered Layout

Sunday, December 08, 2019 0 Comments
Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing a layout and quick tutorial using the Lady Like Collection from Kaisercraft. I had so many ideas and wasn't sure which way to go, but eventually I settled on using lots of layers. This collection is so versatile, you can either use each colour separately or combined as I have done here. It's such a soft, feminine, romantic collection that could be used for all occasions.

Here is my layout plus close ups and a brief description of how I created and embellished the page.


 To start, I've taken the "Gertrude" 12x12 patterned paper to use as the base for this layout.

Take the "Delores" 12x12 patterned paper and cut it down to 11.5"x11.5".

Take the "Elsie" patterned paper and cut it down to 10.75"x10.75". 

Next take another sheet of "Delores" 12x12 patterned paper and cut it down to 10.5"x10.5" (Note: flip this piece over so the pink side is showing).

Once you have these layers, cut out a 9.25"x9.25" square piece from the "Gertrude" base leaving approximately a two inch border on the base piece. This cut out piece will be another layer.

Then take a second sheet of "Elsie" 12x12 patterned paper and cut it down to 8.75"x8.75" making sure to measure from the bottom left so you include the floral pattern. Distress and assemble all layers as shown below.


Take the "Rose" 12x12 patterned paper and fussy cut all flowers from the page. Adhere to the layout as shown. Next, take the "Patsy" 12x12 patterned paper and fussy cut all elements from the page. You will need the lace frame which I have cut down and adhered as shown below. The pink lace strip is from the sticker book, you will need both of these.

Because there's so many layers, I popped the photo up on some cardboard to give the layout some extra dimension.


Once you have this base down, add further floral and elements from both pages and sticker book. Assemble as shown in the finished layout below. Randomly add some pink pearls around the page and on the floral photo cluster. Add some black pearls to the body of both butterflies.


Here are some close up photos of my finished layout so you can see how I've embellished the page.

White With 1 November Challenge

Thursday, November 21, 2019 1 Comments
Hi everyone! It's been a while but I decided to enter the White With 1 Challenge for November. The Midnight Black is so striking against the white. Black and white layouts are always very dramatic, I love them. White With 1 is also having their Design Team Call for 2020 so I'm also applying for the Design Team. Let's see how we go!

Here is my entry plus close ups so you can see how I've created and embellished the page.

Mintay Shadow Box Frame

Tuesday, November 19, 2019 0 Comments
Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing an off the page project that I created using the Dreamer Collection from Mintay. It's been a while since I've done something off the page so I thought I'd go through my stash and see what I had to play with.

I found a shadow box frame that I bought from Kaisercraft a while ago, along with one of their birdcage wooden embellishments. This paired well with the paper collection which features birds. I remembered I had some birds nests and eggs too which went perfectly with the bird theme.

Here are close ups of my project so you can see how I've created and embellished my frame.

Shine Layout

Monday, October 28, 2019 0 Comments
Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing a layout that I created using the lovely Follow Your Heart Collection from Celebr8. The pretty pastel and deep teal with the brown tones were a great match for my SnapChat selfie. I felt the layout looked a little washed out, so I went around the outside of the main photo/embellished area with pencils to make it all pop.

Here is my finished layout with close ups so you can see how I've created and embellished the page.
