Donna Espiritu Kaisercraft Traveler's Notebook wandering ivy

“My Everything” Traveler’s Notebook Spread by Donna Espiritu

December 4, 2017

Hello, lovelies! Donna here on the Kaisercraft blog today sharing a Traveler’s Notebook spread decorated with the brand new Wandering Ivy collection.

I love florals and this collection has tons of floral images and the shades of blue and purple tones that are just simply beautiful.

I also used the coordinating clear stamp in my project today.

First, I converted the photo I used into black and white so the colors will not clash with the colors in the Wandering Ivy collection.

I used a wooden background paper from the 6 1/2 paper pack and then I added another blue floral paper to fill in the gaps. I slightly stamped all over the background to add subtle texture using a couple of Kaisercraft inkpads.

I used the same blue floral paper as matting to the stack of photos. I like adding messy threads to most of my projects and this one is no exception.

I spare the center of the Traveler’s Notebook insert by not adhering anything to the middle.

This will keep it from not closing properly. Just cut the item accordingly if it will happen to be in the middle of the TN insert.

I painted the wood flourishes with white paint first and inked subtlely with Bark Inkpad.

I decorated the left page of the spread with a cluster of ephemera and sticker pieces and wood flourishes.

If you’ll look closely, there is a scatter of glitter tape. You can use this trick to create a confetti background.

Using a regular puncher, I punched several pieces and adhered randomly across the background.

To add more sparkle, I used the Mint Green rhinestones and adhered to the centers of the floral ephemera.

Are you a Memory Keeper?  Do you Scrapbook to record precious moments in life?  What do you use for inspiration for your work…a photograph, a memory, the pretty papers in a new collection?  Sometimes it can be helpful to begin with some Memory Keeping Questions to get the creative juices flowing.

Kylie, Social Media and Promotions Coordinator at Kaisercraft, set some Memory Keeping Questions for our Blog Post today…

Where were you 10 Years Ago?

A quote to live by?

What was the last thing you celebrated?

What is the most important thing in your life?

What is something you are proud of?

What are you thankful/grateful for?

The Design Team was asked to choose one question and use it as inspiration for their layouts….

Altered Canvas Donna Espiritu Mixed Media Tutorials

“Beautiful” Canvas by Donna Espiritu

November 16, 2017

Hello everyone! It’s Donna here sharing my latest project using the Romantique Collection.

“Beautiful” Canvas

I have this square canvas in my stash for quite some time now. So, I decided to alter it and create a mixed media canvas for my project today. Though it is smaller than the usual 12×12 paper I always use for scrapbooking, I still enjoyed the creative process and I love how it turned out.

I used a couple of Kaisercraft Inkpads, modeling paste and Kaisercraft templates to create a textured background

Then, I layered lots of fussy cut images and ephemera die cuts.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the word “beautiful”. It is 7 layers and I adhered each on top of each other to create a thick and sturdy title.

Flowers and rhinestones completed the whole project.

Here is a process video I prepared for you. Enjoy watching!
