Beach Shack Donna Espiritu Scrapbooking layout

“Bliss” Scrapbooking Layout by Donna Espiritu

February 19, 2018

Hello everyone. Donna here sharing a scrapbooking layout using the Beach Shack collection

I also used the Wooden Flourishes and Decorative Dies that coordinates with the collection.

Flourish Pack Beach 35pcs
FL618

Decorative Die – Porthole 
DD808

I don’t have much beach photos or I should rather say, no beach photos at all. But I remembered my dear friend took this photo of me and my family two years ago when we went to Al Wajh, Saudi Arabia. One of the oldest coastal city in north-western Saudi Arabia, situated on the coast of the Red Sea.

I printed two photos and placed it side by side like so. I mounted these with foam tapes for a bit of dimension.

I used one of the specialty papers in the Beach Shack collection as background. Then I brushed a combination of blue, teal, brown and black watercolors. Then magic happens as beautiful patterns in the paper are revealed.

I layered lots of die cuts or collectables underneath and around the two photos. The embellishment is a mixture of paper and wooden flourishes. I also used one paper from the 6 1/2 paper pad that has a wonderful shimmer to it. It’s difficult to capture but the shimmer is beautiful.

I added a thin, brown hemp afterward. I thought the layout needed something to contrast the blueish tone of the page. I placed the brown hemp underneath the photos and the embellishments.

This is quite a simple layout to make and I’m sure you can recreate this as well.

Beach Shack Do not use this category Scrapbooking layout

Beach Bliss

February 16, 2018

Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. Today I am sharing a layout that I have created using papers and embellishments from the Beach Shack Collection. There are so many components to this collection and it makes creating layouts and projects so much fun!

I limited my colour pallet for my embellishments to three tomes which helped me to achieve a cohesive look. I drew my inspiration from my photo and my background paper.

I used the rope corner decorative die and die cut it using a scrap piece of chipboard. I altered it by first coating it with a layer of gesso. Once dry, I used ink daubers and the Kaisercraft ink pads to create my embellishment. I used saffron, vintage and bark.

To create my textured background, I first applied a coat of clear gesso to my background paper. Once dry I then applied some distress spray to areas around my elements. I also used some water and a paint paintbrush to spread the colour around. I stamped my texture stamps in random spots on this blue section and then I used the ripple stencil.

Below my photo I have some more decorative embellishments. I altered some of the wooden flourishes that we released with this collection. I applied a coat of gesso to each and then used a sponge dauber and the Kaisercraft ink pads to apply colout to each element. I also inked the edges of each with the bark ink pad to add extra definition. I sprayed a piece of cheese cloth with a distress spray and added this to my cluster to add some texture.

Miss Betty NEW Product Renee Aslette Scrapbooking layout

“These Are The Days” layout by Renee Aslette

February 2, 2018

Hello Lovelies,

It’s Renee here, to share with you a layout I created using the new Miss Betty Collection.

I have also used the Miss Betty Clear Stamps.  OMG!!  I am in love with these stitching stamps.

CS321 Miss Betty – Clear Stamp 

This is how the layout turned out.

I knew instantly that I wanted to use P2483 Needlework (Reverse) as my background paper.

It had pieces of torn paper featured on a cream background.

I also knew that I wanted to get stamping using the Miss Betty Collection Clear Stamp Set CS321.

This is the background I created with some of the patterned paper and the stamps.  I used the Ink Pads – Black and Petal Pink.

Here are some close-ups:

As you can see I used the Square Stitching stamp from the Miss Betty Clear Stamps and I only inked the areas that would surround the patterned paper.

There are loads of layers on this layout.  I have also used stickers from the Sticker Sheet, Collectables and Wooden Flourishes all from this amazing collection.

To balance the right hand corner of the layout, I added some layers and stamping.

Here you can see the corner stitching from the Clear Stamps has been used.  I followed through with the same thing in the bottom left hand corner.

I used the ticket from the Sticker Sheet for the title of my layout “These Are The Days”.

“Moment Captured” Scrapbook Layout by Donna Espiritu

January 23, 2018

Hello, everyone! It’s Donna here sharing a scrapbook layout I created using the Documented collection

I also incorporated a few Wooden Flourish pieces from different packs to embellish my scrapbooking project today

Provincial

Bouquet

Garden

Here is my finished layout

I splattered a water-diluted white acrylic paint, some brown mists and watercolor to create the background

I first splattered the white acrylic paint followed by the brown watercolor. I let it sit for a few minutes before splattering the brown mist. I repeated this several times until I achieved the look I wanted

I preferred to leave the wooden flourishes bare/as is. I just added some pearls in the center.

The title is several layers of file I cut using an electronic cutting machine. A fine-tipped glue applicator is great to help for easy application of adhesive to small/tiny or intricate details.

To finish off the look, I scattered a mix of rhinestones and pearls all over the layout

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you liked my project using the Documented collection.

Happy crafting, xoDonnaxo

Decorative Dies NEW Product Open Road Renee Aslette Scrapbooking layout

Eungella Dam Layout using Open Road by Renee Aslette

December 14, 2017

Hi Kaisercraft Friends,

It’s Renee Aslette here today, to share with you a layout I created using the newly released Open Road Collection and the Map Of Australia Die Cut.

We have recently purchased a camper trailer, this collection was the perfect way to capture the memories of a fantastic week away visiting Eungella Dam.

Eungella Dam, is a beautiful camping area up in the Eungella Valley just out of Mackay in Far North Queensland.

To begin with, I created a mixed media background using some Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Refills on a 12 x 12 Weave Cardstock – Coconut.  The touch of blue was used to tie in with the camper in the photo.

I also added a torn strip of Corrugated Cardstock to the left and right of the layout.

I then got the new Map of Australia Die Cut out and cut 4,  using various patterned paper from the Open Road Collection.  When I received this die cut, I knew I would be using it as a feature on a layout.

I used a white pen to define the separation lines on the die and the border of the entire piece.

Here are some more close-ups:

The Collectables in this collections are stunning.  Perfect for any adventure.

I used the Kaisercraft Chipboard Alpha 2 for the title and coloured it with the same colours I used in the background of the layout minus the blue.

I hope you enjoyed this post.  Don’t be afraid to get those dies out and feature them on your layout.
