Five Tips for Layering Paper with Process Video

July 3, 2017

Do you like layering paper in Layouts but sometimes are not sure where to begin?

Are you interested in some Paper Layering Tips for Scrapbooking?

Today I am demonstrating five tips for Layering paper in a Layout and I am using the sunny and gorgeous Golden Grove Collection.  I have made a Layout with a photo of my Mum and Dad on their Wedding Day.

Five Tips for Layering Paper ~ Kaisercraft Golden Grove Layout by Alicia McNamara

Lets get started!

Layering Paper Tip 1 – Plan the Outline of Your Design

For this Layout I chose to make a cross Design behind my photo.  I use the cross design quite a bit because I find it easy to work with.  I drew the cross onto a scrap bit of 12×12 paper to show you what I was thinking in my head.  If you have a basic outline you can shape your layers to work with that outline.  So at the end of the layering part you have something that looks balanced and planned.  Then I chose a background paper, P2354 Collated, because I wanted something quite plain to work with.

I chose the Cherry Blossom Template IT001 to use with Gold Paint and Impasto and I wanted this to pop out from under my layered paper design.  I love this template.  The little blossoms are so pretty.

Layering Paper Tip 2 – Choose Papers with Colours that Work Together

 I chose three papers P2335 Canola, P2356 Fallen Leaves and P2358 Sweet Pear to use as my layers and cut them into strips of various sizes. I wanted to focus more on the golden colours from this collection, with just a hint of green, to suit my photograph.  Then I positioned them into a cross pattern and inked them with Saffron Ink.

Layering Paper Tip 3 – Use a Mixture of Mounting Tape and Flat Tape

Once I was happy with the positioning of the paper strips I stuck them down with mounting tape and flat tape.  By using the different type of tapes you can make layers of different depths.

Layering Paper Tip 4 – Fussy Cut some Layers

The papers in this collection are perfect for some fussy cutting and fussy cutting is a great way to layer paper.  I chose the paper P2352 Gold Dahlia to cut two clusters of paper blooms.

Layering Paper Tip 5 – Use Collectables

Collectables are perfect for adding paper layers to your design…sometimes I wish I had five bags of these because I absolutely LOVE collectables.  They make creating such a breeze.  The collectables in this collection are just adorable!  So many beautiful flowers and butterflies.

‘Memories’ layout with video tutorial by Tatiana Yemelyanenko

June 20, 2017

Hello Kaisercraft fans!

Today I have a new layout with video tutorial to share with you. This time I played with retro and romantic Keepsake collection .

For my project I chose photograpy of my daughter when she was 12 days old.

I layered paper and used border punches to add dimension and also used fussy cut flowers, acetate frames, collectables and other embellishmets.

Background stamping helped me to make background more interesting.

And here you can find video tutorial with all the details of creating this layout.
