Little Things Wandering Ivy Layout Tutorial by Jowilna Nolte

December 12, 2017

Hi everyone – today I am sharing this double page layout created using the gorgeous Wandering Ivy Collection. For the tutorial portion I am sharing how I created
some interest on my background as well as using my die-cuts in a cheat way to add color instantly without worrying to tear or damage the fine delicate cuts made.
Lets take a look how I created my elements…
On my background I created some layered filled in circles with hand sewn details around the edges. So quick and easy to achieve but with a stunning end result.

For my flower cluster I wanted to use the beautiful Ivy die-cut. But the part I hate most about die-cuts is adding color to them once they are cut.
Especially with those delicate pieces that tear and break so easily So here’s my cheat way of adding color and cutting them without any fuss.

Step 1 – Turn the die-cut over and ink the flat side (back) of your die using 2 or more shades of green ink.
Lightly tap the ink onto the surface to ink it.

Step 2 – Carefully lift the die and place it onto your cardstock with the inked side on white cardstock.
Feed it through your die-cutting machine with your rubber matt in place. This will transfer the ink onto the cardstock and created a light embossed image as well.

Step 3 – Remove the cardstock from your machine. Lift the die-cut to reveal the now debossed and color transferred image.

Step 4 – Leave the ink to dry or heat set using a heat gun. Flip your cardstock over and position the die on the raised area of the image visible at the back.
Place the die and keep it in place with some washi tape. Now cut the image from the back.

TIP: You have to cut from the back in order to line the die up correctly with the colored image on the front.

Now cut the shape by putting it through your die-cutting machine. Remove the cut and coloured image.

And that’s how I quickly and easily add color to my image and then cut it without any fuss.

How to create the stitches circles on your background.

Step 5 – Use an anywhere circle cutter. I used my old fashioned one that I can adjust to any size circle.
Cut several circles out of your background and in different sizes.

Step 6 – Cut scraps of your patterned paper slightly bigger than your circles.

Step 7 – Back the cutout circles with the patterned paper pieces by adhering the pieces to the back of your cut out circles.
Use your paper piercer to make holes inside and even outside of the circles. Sew the circles using embroidery thread for a beautiful dimensional effect.

What have you created with the beautiful Wandering Ivy Collection? The sweetest and most beautiful collection…until the next one.
Happy scrapping Jowilna

“Wedding Invitation, Place Cards and Bonbonneire” by Alicia McNamara

Kaisercraft "Always and Forever" Wedding Collection by Alicia McNamara

I made a little coordinating set for a wedding day consisting of an Invitation, place cards and a little box that could be filled with chocolates as a Bonbonneire gift.

Kaisercraft "Always and Forever" Wedding Invitation by Alicia McNamara

Firstly the invitation.  This is very simple to make and could be mass-produced quickly and easily for a large amount of wedding invitations.  The doily folds back to reveal the details of the invite.  The same design could be used as a Menu at the wedding and also a Ceremony booklet.

Kaisercraft "Always and Forever" Wedding Placecards by Alicia McNamara

These place cards are again simply designed to be mass-produced.  Keeping with the colour scheme of the invitations these are a natural and rustic look with fresh white accents.

Kaisercraft "Always and Forever" Wedding Bonbonneire by Alicia McNamara

By following a simple box tutorial this Bonbonneire  “Thank you gift” would be the perfect little take-home memento for the occasion.

“Always & Forever” by Kirsten Hyde

Have you ever wondered about what to give for a wedding? For close friend, an idea is to give an album and create some layout with some of the wedding photos. This is what I did for a close friends wedding, a few years ago. The photo I have used here is the cake topper from that wedding.

I just love Kaisercraft’s wooden papers, and get drawn to them in each paper collection. This brown wooden paper is no exception. I have tried to make a romantic wedding layout with this rustic paper.
