Kaisercraft Hey Birdie – Double Page Inspiration

May 24, 2010

One of the quickest and easiest ways I find, to create a double page layout is to use a simple symmetrical design.  I tend to take lots of photos at a time and work out what I want to keep/delete  later, and while this helps in selecting the best images, it also means I have more to choose from when telling a particular story.

What is it about you 2 and MUD by Nikki Antonello – Hey Birdie Paper Collection, Paper Pad, Chipboard Alphabet, Cream Grosgrain Ribbon, Black and White Rubons, Rhinestones and Foam Dots.

These photos of Noah and Belle were all printed in your regular 6×4 size.  I kept the two centre portrait  photos that size and cropped the others.  I used my symmetrical design and made one page the mirror image of the other.

And even though it’s not Tuesday…here’s a little extra tip for you.  Have a go at creating your very own, custom made, perfectly co-ordinating patterned ribbon. 

Just chose a Kaisercraft Grosgrain ribbon that co-ordinates with your papers and your favourite rubon and there you have it!  I used the little birdies from the Black and white rubon pack, but could have also chosen some of the beautiful coloured rubons.  This technique would also work well on the new Kaisercraft Organza Ribbon. Why not give it a go!

Jungle Bug 12×12 Layout

May 20, 2010

I was so excited when I first saw the Jungle Bug collection because I knew it was just perfect for these photos from our trip to Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World, Florida. The green foliage in the collection is just so lush, just like the jungle, so the name of the collection is truly fitting. Then there are the blues and orangey golds- just so vibrant and rich! And of course, it is easy to pull a page together with a title using the ever-versatile alpha stickers. A bit of inking and “distressing” really give this page the “outdoorsy” look I was going for. And the bugs cut from the patterned paper and scattered across the page here and there add a bit of whimsy and fun. My gold “jungle flowers” are the KaiserCraft flowers folded and crumpled up a bit and then I used flower stamens from my own stash for the centers.
