Live with a full heart ~ Rose Avenue Layout Photo Tutorial by Donna Espiritu

October 10, 2017

 

Hello!  Donna here sharing a scrapbook layout I created using the Rose Avenue collection.

I think this is my favorite from the new collections so far. Primarily because of the florals and pastel colors! I love this combination and there’s a ton of patterns to fussy cut as well. Heaven!

I usually print 2 sizes of photos and since I didn’t want one to go to waste or left unused, I decided to place the photos side by side as I did here with my page. I used a doily to add visual interest.

I did a bit of mixed media to my background first and added some colors using metallique acrylic paints and ink pads.

I mixed different shades of pink and turquoise to achieve the background

I love how the strips of paper looked like after! I used foam tapes to lift the scalloped edges instead of leaving it flat. Then I went into town embellishing the whole page. I love this particular quote (which is in the product strip! So don’t throw those away, you can still use them like I did here!) and I think it matched the mood and angle of my daughter’s photo like she’s facing or looking towards something bright.

Rose Avenue is such a beautiful collection!

Here is a short tutorial I prepared for you.

That’s all from me today. I hope you liked my page!
Enjoy and Happy crafting,

Donna Espiritu Layouts Letters To Santa

“Believe” layout by Donna Espiritu

September 14, 2017

Hello!

Donna here to share a scrapbook layout I created using the Letters To Santa collection.

I love the traditional colors red and green in this collection and my niece’s photo is perfect so I used that here.

Let me show how I created this layout, it’s just a few simple steps actually. The part that took time was fussy cutting the images from one of the papers.

First, use the Be Merry paper as the base for the layout. Cut the special die cut paper like so and adhere to the right and left corners as seen in the image. Mat the photo with one of the cards from the Perforated Wishlist paper and add some messy white threads underneath.

Embellish with the fussy cut images from the Christmas Poinsettia paper and pieces from the Letters To Santa Collectables. Use foam tapes to some of the pieces to add dimension. Using the Decorative Die Lantern Scene and Glitter Cardstock in Champagne, cut some leaves and a candle.

Using a brush, splatter white watercolors all over the layout (use a piece of scrap paper or plastic to cover the photo from unwanted splatters). And the layout is done!

Here are some detailed shots of the finished layout

I hope you liked my project today!

Christmas Jewel Design Team DIY Donna Espiritu Kaisercraft Tutorials

Peace, Love, Joy banner by Donna Espiritu

August 21, 2017

Hello! Donna here with my first post as a Kaisercraft Design Team member.

I used the Christmas Jewel collection to create a banner perfect as a Christmas decoration.

While I was thinking of what to make for today’s project, I knew I wanted to include one of the beautiful, glittery Kaisercraft printed tapes. So, I came up with the idea to create a rosette out of it.

I thought of using the patterned papers from the paper pad but since I will cover them anyway, I just used regular copy papers.

I didn’t cover the entire strip of paper. 2 lines of the printed tape was enough.

I also added “tails” to each one using a metallic silver thread. I used foam tapes to some of the pieces to add depth.

Here is a step-by-step tutorial if you like to make one for a holiday decor.
