Blae and Ivy: Soft and Sweet

July 25, 2011

Kirst and Leanne with you this afternoon to share some Blae and Ivy pages with you!

Kirsty:

I’d like to introduce you to my new nephew; Freddie was born April 1st(which my children now refer to as ‘Freddie Fools Day’).

He is SUCH a sweet-heart!

I was lucky enough to meet little Freddie when he was only 1 day old.

Kirsty Piper: Freddie: Blae and Ivy Collection: Meadow(P695), Mystic Cove(P697), Sky(P698), Journal tags(JT623), Sticker Sheet(SS106), Rub Ons(RB924), Clear Stamps(CS781) Kaisercraft other: Crochet Doilie-Lace/Cream(EM948), Paint-Antique White(KC002), Alpha Stickers-Cream(AS222), Ink-Sandstone(IP710), Lace Pack-Cream(EM927), Clear Stamps- Alpha Typewriter Font(CS785), Alpha Date(CS787), Paper Tags and Shapes-Manilla(EM924)

I wanted a very subtle, pale alpha for the title, and the Cream Alpha Stickers were the perfect colour….but needed a little something ;)

To jazz them up just a little, I selected an ink in a slightly darker colour, and stamped the gorgeous Blae and Ivy doilie stamp onto the Alphas.

I think it provided just the right amount of texture and interest that I was looking for :)

Leanne:

Can I just start by saying that I am totally in love with the Blae & Ivy papers.  They are so beautiful and are very very versatile.

Here is a layout of my adorable little munchkin taken a few years ago

Leanne Love: Picture Perfect: Blae and Ivy Collection: Dew Drop (P694) Meadow(P695), Mystic Cove(P697), Mineral (p693), Field (P966) Journal tags(JT623), Kaisercraft other: FL325 wooden flourish (twin lamp post, RB931 Rubons, IP703 Ink (Moss), MA502 Mini Alphas, RI618 Organza Ribbon

A Little Family Time with Blae and Ivy

July 16, 2011

Hi there

It is Toni and Vicki here to share our family frames using the latest release from Kaisercraft – Blae and Ivy.

____

Vicki says “I love taking photos and treasure all the family pictures we get, but I really do hate the camera when it is pointing at me!

Last weekend I managed to get some lovely photos of the kids before we went out to see the “Walking with Dinosaurs” show.

Before I put the camera away I set the timer and took a photo of all of us together.

I know we won’t probably do that again for a while so for a photo this special I have put this is Kaisercraft’s Six Frame Photo Display.

I used Kaisercraft Paint in Antique White and Black for the frame – adding some crackle medium in between the two coats.

I use Blae and Ivy papers as the base and then added Wooden Flourishes – Iron Gates and Keys – and a few paper blooms.

The frame was finished off with my all time favourite quote.

“MY FAMILY” BY VICKI MORRIS

Materials Used: Kaisercraft – Six Frame Photo Display, Kaisercolour – Antique White and Black,  Kaisercraft – Blae and Ivy – Dew Drop, Kaisercraft – Blae and Ivy – Mystic Cove, Kaisercraft – Blae and Ivy – Sticker Sheet, Kaisercraft – Pearl Strips – Champagne, Kaisercraft – Wooden Flourishes – Iron Gate and Keys,  Kaisercraft – Alpha Chipboard, Kaisercraft – Paper Blooms – Honey, Crackle Medium, Prima Vine, Misc Flowers, Pearl Ex Powder, Black Ink.

Hi there,

It’s Toni here to share my Family Memories Frame made with Blae & Ivy.

I love this range of paper and it’s perfect for heritage style layouts and beyond the page.

This is why I decided to use it for this frame to hold some photos from when I was a child. I have very few of these so the ones I do have are precious.

I painted the 6 frame photo display black, then sanded some of the edges to give it a distressed look. Then using the leaves stamp I randomly stamped some leaves on the frame and embossed them with a gilded embossing powder.

Blae & Ivy Valley is perfect for this frame. The individual pieces fit in the spaces on the frame. I distressed and inked each of the pieces I wanted to use and sanded the photos to give the heritage look. The colours of the paper work perfectly with black and white photos. I also used some of the journalling tags as a base for the title and the photo in the larger frame.

I also added a quote in the bottom corner to fit in with the theme of the frame.

I finished off the frame with wooden flourishes, pearls, paper blooms and lace.

And here are our Design Team’s take on the sketch:

“My Broken Baby” By Kirsty Piper

Materials Used:
Class of ’87 Collection: Book Week(P618), Times Tables(P620), Die Cut Elements(DC334), 6 1/2″ Paper Pad(PP837) Report Card Pockets(EM959). KaiserCraft Other; Alpha Stamps Typewriter font(CS785).

Instead of clusters of flowers in the bottom left hand side, I clustered some journal tags, and used one of those gorgeous Report Card Pockets to hide away some hidden journalling, I also made the date a feature of my page-I am really regretting not dating some of my earlier LO’s as the kids get older.
