Kaisercraft DT - Rustic Harmony


Hello again everyone....gosh, what a busy week it's been!!!
 
I am back with a few projects using another new Kaisecraft collection....
Rustic Harmony.
 
This collection is nothing short of beautiful...it is soft and pretty, yet rustic at the same time.  Lots of woodgrained & antiquey type papers, that would suit any style of layout.  As you can see below, I have used a photo from Dublin on our trip last year, and if you remember back on my Kaisercraft Finalist DT application post,  I got to play with this gorgeous collection back then too, and again,
I created a travel page from Ireland.
 
You can see my blog post using this same collection HERE, if you're interested :)
 
 
"Ha' Penny Bridge"
 
I've used the Kaisercraft Quarters template on my background with some modelling paste, and also some stamping with KC script stamp....and I've then layered up different papers & a heap of Collectables pieces, plus some stickers in there as well.
 
 

And of course...some Paper Blooms - I absolutely love my paper blooms <3 and some diecut leaves to help finish off the cluster.
 
 

I've added some gesso, swiped across the Paper Blooms & leaves to help tie in with the
feel of these rustic papers.
 
 
 

 
 

This collection comes with alpha stickers on the sticker sheet, so I've used them in my title, as well as some KC white alpha stickers that I've inked a soft pink.  I love the size of these alpha stickers...as they are not too big, they are just the perfect size :)
 
 

Here's a close up of the stencil work & stamping on the background.
 
 

And a close up of the main area of the page.
 
 
 
Next up is a BTP project.......
 
"Sweet Love"
Using a Kaisercraft freestanding heart
 
 
I've used 2 layers of paper, with the top layer cut slightly smaller than the bottom, so that it created a bit of a border around the outside of the heart.  I've also distressed & inked the edges of the inner heart to help give it a bit more definition.
 
 

I created a cluster made up of 3 different coloured paper blooms, some stickers & diecuts...plus a really OLD KC wooden flourish that I found buried in my stash...lol!  Also added some muslin & some die-cut leaves.
 
 

I've added a bit of texture to the wooden flourish & then coloured it with glimmermist.
 
 

And here is a few of the Collectables pieces....layered butterflies & some cute little banners.
 
 
I hope you like what I've created & have been inspired by this beautiful collection.

Kaisercraft DT - North Pole


Hello everyone...I hope you are having a great start to the week!
 
I am up on the Kaisercraft blog this week with 3 new paper collections.
Todays post is using another Christmas collection....North Pole!
 
It is a fun collection, with quite a few non-traditional colours...which I love!
I have created 2 layouts....one is Christmas themed and the other is from our holiday to Ireland last year, so this is quite a versatile collection and would be suited for other layouts besides Christmas :))
 
"Dreaming of a White Christmas"
 

As the North Pole name suggests - the colours are well suited for snow themed Christmas layouts.
The photo I've used is not actually a photo....it is an image from an e-card, so was not taken by me.
I have always dreamt of having a White Christmas, so I thought this paper collection was perfect to document that dream :)
 
I've used the gorgeous Snowflakes paper for the background, with those
awesome faux stitched chevrons!

My cluster has a few paperblooms, Collectables pieces & also some stickers from the sticker sheet.
I've also added a few spirals from the stems of the paper blooms
 
 

I have layered a variety of papers in under the photo & also some Collectables pieces as well.
 
 

These baubles are gorgeous pieces from the Collectables pack.
I love delving into each paper collections Collectables pack...it is quite literally, just like Chrismtas!
They are always filled with a HEAP of fabulous pieces....in all different shapes & sizes.
 
 

I have added my journaling to the back of a tag & it slips just in under the photo.
 
 

 
There is also some mesh tape around the edges of my paper layers for a bit of added texture.

"Kinsale Harbour"

I thought the colours in this collection well suited the colours of the amazing Kinsale Harbour.
So again, a few simple layers in under the photo, using papers & collectables pieces...plust some Kaisercraft printed tape.
 
 

Another cluster with paper blooms, Collectables & some 2Crafty Chipboard - Summer Leaf Stems
 
 
 

Here you can see where I've used a few Collectables pieces layered in with the papers...and there's also a bit of light stamping on the background using KC Grid stamp.
 
 

More Collectables & stickers to form a little cluster at the bottom of the page.

WRMK "Indian Summer" for All About Scrapbooks / Scrap365 October sketch

Hello again everyone
 
I am back again so soon!
This time to share my first DT layout for All About Scrapbooks for October,
Using the utterly gorgeous We R Memory Keepers "Indian Summer" collection.
 
All I can say about this collection is....WOW!
The papers are to die for!!  This is one of those that you simply "must have"!
Hopefully my page will speak for itself to show you exactly what I mean.....
 
My layout is based on the October sketch at Scrap365
 
 
"S.W.A.K"
 

How awesome & cool is that background paper?!?
It is called "watercolour" ....and I think it's obvious why!
All those gorgeous looking coloured watermarks are part of the paper....I didn't add them!
All I've added is a bit of stencil work, light stamping & a few flicks of dark brown mist.
 
Here is the sketch that I've based my layout on.....
 
 
 
 
And now for a few close ups.....
