Beyond The Page with Blae and Ivy

July 31, 2011

Good Morning Everyone,

What a better way to start a Sunday morning then with some gorgeous Beyond The Page projects showcasing the gorgeous “Blae & Ivy” Collection.

Cassandra Says ” I love these new frames, there are so many possibilities using and creating with them. It is always fun to see what people will come up with. I have chosen to decorate this frame for my Grandmother, featuring photo’s of her and my Grandfather in days gone by. I love the way the black and white images pop off the page”.

Kaisercraft Materials List: Long Frame Photo Display (SB2112), Mystic Cove (P697), Sky (P698), Field (P696), Meadow (P695), Valley (P699), Mini Journal Tags (JT623), Sticker Sheet (SS106), Lace (EM928), Paper Blooms (F631 & 633 & 628), Pearls (SB715), Acrylic Paint (KC046)

I have hidden Mini Journal Tags behind the photo’s for layering and dimension, and also foam tape to make the images pop.

 Janna Says “I tend to create colourful projects but, I really enjoyed creating this rather classical photo frame. Blae and Ivy makes it easy to highlight black and white photo’s without withdrawing the attention from them”.

To create a slightly shabby look, I sanded the edges of the photo frame.

And here is a project I forgot to share earlier in the week! (oops)

It is a Beyond The Page project featuring the “Little Toot” collection. I have decorated one of the new 6 Frame Photo Displays with the gorgeous “Little Toot”. It was so much fun to work with this paper, and the Kaisercraft Acrylic Red paint just makes it all pop!

Layouts with Blae and Ivy

July 29, 2011

Good Morning Everyone,

Janna and Cassandra are back again with two layouts :)

Today, we would like to share our creations using the wonderful “Blae and Ivy” papers. 

Janna Says “Blae and Ivy is perfect for any friendship related layouts. This layout is dedicated to a very special friendship: my husband and our dog :)”.

To add more dimension to the layout, I used a black pen to contour the edges of the paper pieces.

“True Friendship” by Janna Werner

Kaisercraft Materials List: Pearls (SB713), Blae and Ivy collection: Meadow (P695), Field (P696), Valley (P699), Journal Tags (JT623), RubOns (RB924), Sticker Sheet (SS106)

Cassandra Says ” I absolutely adore the new Blae & Ivy Collection. I suppose it helps that green is one of my favourite colours, but I can also see the potential this range has to offer. I am a scrapper who enjoys inking and designing vintage layouts, and this paper range allows you to do that but also it give you the choice to design more modern and fresh layouts too. Today I would like to share a layout featuring one of two of my best friends in the world. We share certainly share a true friendship that needs no words at all!”
