Rose Avenue Mini Album with Process Video

October 16, 2017

Do you ever have a few memorable photos that you think deserve a special Album? Do you ever create or decorate Mini Albums? Mini Albums are perfect for showcasing little collections of photographs.  Today I am sharing how to make a Small Polaroid Mini Album for four photos using Kaisercraft’s Rose Avenue Collection.  I filmed the process for making this Album so you can see exactly how it came together.

Kaisercraft Rose Avenue Mini Album By Alicia McNamara

Being a Mum of two precious boys I don’t have a lot of pink girly photographs in my personal collection or a lot of pink girly things in my home.  Even though I am a girly-girl at heart, most of my photos have blue-t-shirts, caps, balls and boys toys in them.  Luckily I do have friends that have little girls and I do happen to have some friends that are very talented at hosting amazing birthday parties.

When one of my friend’s said her little girl’s first birthday party was going to be a ballerina theme I did get a little bit excited.  Especially as this particular friend is an amazing cook as well and I certainly wasn’t disappointed! The party was gorgeous and the food just blew me away.  My friend hand-made everything (including the cake) and I took lots of photographs on the day of all the lovely pink, ballerina food.  All of this meant that I had a collection of yummy pink party food photographs and I thought they deserved a special place in a Mini Album.

Rose Avenue Collection

The Rose Avenue Collection is perfect for scrapping those girly-girl photos.  It is filled with Shabby Chic gorgeousness – roses, butterflies and lots of pretty pastel colours.  For this Mini Album I chose to use Kaisercraft’s Small Polaroid Album.  It is just the right design for whipping up a quick Mini Album to showcase four special photographs.  I used one 12×12 Paper for this project and one page from the Paper Pad.

How I made the Album

To begin with I inked the chipboard album in Pink ink.  Then I used paint and texture paste to paint over the top of the pink ink through this template to create a textured pattern on the chipboard album.I’m a big fan of swirls and flourishes…there is something that I love about them…and this new Template from Kaisercraft SWIRL FLOURISH is just divine.

I adhered my photographs onto 12×12 Paper WOOD PANELS and then it was just a simple matter of gluing the photo and the frame together.

Once the pages of the Album were assembled I was up to the decorating part.  I used a variety of Mini Paper Blooms, Fussy-cut Roses, Wooden Flourishes, Flourish Die Cuts and Cheese Cloth scraps to decorate each page.  Here is the Process Video that shows exactly how I made the Album:

This Mini Album will be the perfect gift for my friend….I hope she likes it : )

Rose Avenue Mixed Media Plaque by Jowilna Nolte

October 12, 2017

Today on the blog I am sharing a mixed media project with you using the beautiful Rose Avenue Collection.
I wanted to create something a little different to showcase the versatility of this range and just happened to have some wood lying around.
This “thankful” wooden plaque was created on a piece of recycled wood. I created a base using paint, texture paste and pigment powders before adding the top layer
of Rose Avenue using paper and elements from the Collectables pack.

Layered tags and elements from the Collectables pack are layered on top of a piece of paper from the Paper Pad.

Paper flowers on top of the texture paste makes for a beautiful contrast.

Texture paste was applied through the flourish stencil and then colored using pigment powders in pink and green.
The pigments are mixed with water to create a paint or paste and then applied with a medium soft paint brush and left to dry naturally.

Create different layers and dimension by adhering some of the elements using foam tape.

Use the same pigment mixture to add splats all over the plaque for an artistic look.

A few pearls and diamante scattered across the plaque adds some feminine details to an already beautiful vintage looking plaque.
This can be hung on the wall or displayed on a stand somewhere in your home as a reminder to always be thankful.
Such a beautiful way of an important reminder.

Design Team Layouts Rose Avenue

Shabby Chic Layouts Featuring Rose Avenue

October 11, 2017

When you hear the words Shabby Chic Layout what immediately springs to mind? Distressed layers, lace, floral patterns, and pastels?

Shabby Chic…according to Wikipedia is a form of interior design where furniture and furnishings are either chosen for their appearance of age and signs of wear and tear or where new items are distressed to achieve the appearance of an antique. At the same time, a soft, opulent, yet cottage-style decor, often with an affected feel is emphasized to differentiate it from the genuine period decor.

Today the Design Team were asked to create a Shabby Chic Layout featuring the beautiful Rose Avenue Collection.  Let’s see their interpretations….

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.
