Hello and welcome to the Kaisercraft blog. Leonie Neal-Dawson with you today and I’m am so excited to share my projects with you this month. I absolutely adore the patterns and colours in the Finders Keepers collection and had so much fun creating with these papers. I think I’ll be using up every little scrap of paper I have in this range, it’s a definite keeper if you ask me!!
Here’s the first of three pages I scrapped with the Finders Keepers collection. I used Kaisercraft Kraft cardstock as a base and added floral stickers from the sticker sheet and various elements from the collectables pack and paper pad to build my page.
Using white acrylic paint I randomly stamped with the new background script stamp released this month.

Got to love a versatile collection that can go from a girly floral page to a boy page. So next up we have this boy page I whipped up using blue and yellow patterned papers from the collection.
An interactive element here hides my journalling behind this little embellishment cluster made from collectables and a doiley cut from the Decorative Die Fancy Frame. I simply stapled it on one side so it could be lifted to reveal the journalling.
For the title on this page I used the Upper Case Alpha Designer Template and traced the required letters before fussy cutting them out.

My last page with the Finders Keepers collection, I decided to get all arty and had some fun with the new Floral Lace Designer Template, Kaisermists and texture paste. I traced around the pattern of the template after I’d added the Kaisermists to allow it to stand out a little more, I think it adds some nice contrast as well.
Once I’d created my textured and coloured background it was a matter of layering some of the Finders Keepers Patterned papers under my photo. I also added some frames from the Round Fancy Frames Decorative Die set.
I used the Beautiful Memory Decorative Die as the title for this page as well as the first page above. Who else struggles to come up with titles for their pages? I often do! Which is why I like these simple short phrase Dies. There are lots of these Dies available check them all out HERE.

I have one last share for you today and it’s using the Treasure Chest Captured Moments Kit.
I used seven of the 4×6″ cards in the Captured Moments kit and taped them together with Kaisercraft printed washi tape. This was such an easy project tout together. Everything I needed to make this album was in the kit. The cards, photo Overlays and collectables. The only bits I added were the washi tape of course, some tags, the doiliey and lace.
I added some smaller ‘pages’ by using the 3×4″ cards from the kit and again some Kaisercraft washi tape to hinge them to the album. I also made several pockets with double sided tape on three sides of the 3×4″ Captured Moments cards. I then put tags with photos on them inside the pockets.
My album contains lots of small size photographs of a recent family weekend away, which makes it a lovley little keepsake of the special times we shared. When spread out the whole albums’ concertina folds allow it to stand alone.
Or if you like you could perhaps pop it in an envelope and post it snail mail to a friend or family member as a keepsake.
