How to Make a Baby Girl Layout – A Step By Step Tutorial

July 19, 2018

Do you love to scrap small children and baby photos as much as I do? Then you would be loving the newly released Hide and Seek Collection.

Today I am sharing a Step-By-Step Photo and Video Tutorial to explain exactly how I created this baby girl Layout.  These sweet (professional) photos I scrapped are of my friend’s third daughter.  I just adore what this talented photographer came up with and I love how the photos match perfectly with the Hide and Seek Collection by Kaisercraft.

In this post I will share what products are needed to re-create the layout, the Step-By-Step Photos and Written Instructions (for those who prefer to read), the Video Tutorial (for those who prefer to watch) and finally some photos of the completed Layout.

I hope you enjoy my post today : )

I hope you have enjoyed my Tutorial and Layout.  If you choose to re-create this Baby Girl layout please share it with me so I can see it too.  I feel so rewarded when someone takes the time to re-create one of my designs.  This layout could be easily changed to a Baby Boy layout by choosing some different papers from the same collection and following the same process.

Have a lovely crafty day : )

Donna Espiritu Gypsy Rose Mixed Media Scrapbooking layout Tutorials

“You are good for my soul” Gypsy Rose Layout

July 10, 2018

Hello, lovelies! I hope you’re all having a great day! It’s Donna here with a scrapbook layout using one of the newest collections this month, Gypsy Rose.

Here is what I came up with

I started with a blank white cardstock, cutting an inch off of two sides.

Then I mixed brown and pink watercolors and splattered some on the cardstock. If you flick the brush a bit closer to the surface, it will create small splatters. So if you flick the brush farther, it will create bigger splatters.

I let the watercolor splatters stay for a while, letting it seep through the cardstock, before using a piece of plastic to spread and flatten the splatters. I also used a piece of tissue to get some of the water so the colors won’t be too bright. I just want a hint of watercolor on the background. After this has dried, I mounted the cardstock on a patterned paper.

I used this beautiful Decorative Die, Crochet Doilie, to cut a bronze glitter cardstock. I started off with this to decorate/embellish the layout.

Mounting it with a foam tape, I placed it like so and then added an array of embellishments below it to mimic a dream catcher.
I used both stickers and die cuts from the Collectables pack. Some were mounted using foam tapes for dimension and some were simply glued on top or under a piece of another embellishment.

It really is quite simple and easy!

Here are more close up shots of the finished layout

Hide and Seek Scrapbooking layout Stamps

Hide and Seek layered Layout by Jowilna Nolte

July 9, 2018

Welcome to today’s blog post. Are you loving the new ranges this month as much as we do?
Today I am sharing a fun layout with you using the Hide and Seek range… perfect for those little people in our lives.
Apart from the cute little critters I am simply in love with the beautiful color palette of this range.

I really wanted to include some of the beautiful feathers from the range into my layout, but the stamp set was a bit small.
So I used a feather image from the internet (free) and printed it onto vellum in grey ink on my inkjet printer.
Immediately as it came out the printer and while the ink is still wet I add white embossing powder and heat it with my hat gun for  a beautifully embossed feather.

Elements from my collectables pack create a beautiful cluster combined with stamping in navy blue.

Extra cut out animals line the bottom edge of the background keeping the bear company.

I used foam tape to raise some of the cut out elements and leaves for dimension. Tucked underneath the cluster of leaves is some thread.

Until next time – have fun with this gorgeous range.

Donna Espiritu Full Bloom Scrapbooking layout

“You Make My Life Beautiful” | Donna Espiritu

June 11, 2018

Hello, beautiful Kaisercraft readers! Donna here with my personal post using one of Kaisercraft’s newest collections,

“Full Bloom”

I’m adding this to one of my favorites because of the gorgeous floral patterns, the soft pastel colors and the rose gold foiling in this collection. And the wood background! Totally swoon-worthy!

I used this distressed wood paper as the background/base to my layout. I just love how it made the colorful papers and embellishments stand out.

“You Make My Life Beautiful”

You Make Me Feel Beautiful - Full Bloom | Donna Espiritu

Then I added strips to the top part using a border punch to one of the strips.

The pink and white splatters tie up the top part and bottom part together. So it doesn’t look like disconnected.

I adhered the smaller paper strips in the middle using foam tape for dimension. I alternated the patterns and colors with a doily and white thread to create interest. I downloaded a bow pattern from the internet (just type “bow template” in the search button and you’d see a lot of different templates. Just get save and use the one you like) and made one and accentuated the bottom of the photo with it. I just traced it with pencil and fussy cut with scissors.

I used one of the word arts in the sticker sheet as the layout’s title. I adhered it to the bottom part of the layout using foam tape.

Art Foam Storage Tin by Jowilna Nolte

I am not one for making too many of my own flowers, but can I just mention how utterly addictive this product and process has been.
I am totally in love with the ease and beauty of it all – and may end up making way too many flowers for future projects.
I created some pretty flowers to spruce up a storage tin in a few easy steps.
