Indigo Skies Layouts Terhi Koskinen

Scrapbook layout “XOXO” by Terhi Koskinen

April 19, 2017

Hello Kaisercraft fans!

Terhi Koskinen here to inspire you with this lovely blue collection called “Indigo Skies”.

As the collection’s main color is deep blue, together with some white details, I decided to give it a little twist by adding different green Kaiser Mists to the background. Feels like the collection got a whole new life with it. 

Adding green made me think about other options. What would this collection give by adding lilac next to it? Or pink? Possibilities are endless and it makes this beautiful line very versatile.

To smooth the contrast between blue and green, I added turquoise sparlets here and there.

Scrapbook layout tutorial by Terhi Koskinen

February 28, 2017

Hello all! It’s Terhi Koskinen back with you sharing a scrapbook layout made with one of the best, the most beautiful and the pretties collection ever: Island Escape!

The collection is perfect to any wonderful creations, but as I just spend a little vacation in much warmer country than Finland, these papers were perfect to archieve our memories from sandy toes and sunny days.

To show you how simple this layout was to do, I recorded a process video to watch. It’s quick, it’s easy, and still I love the happy and airy result. Take a look, you’ll find the video at the end of this post.

Cherry Tree Lane Layouts Scrapbooking layout Terhi Koskinen

Scrapbook layout ‘Making Memories’ by Terhi Koskinen

January 20, 2017

Hello Kaisercraft fans!

Terhi Koskinen here sharing my new love for you. In the beginning of this Design Team term I wasn’t very into vintage or romantic style. Just about half year has passed and I must say, my opinions and interests has changed and I’m thrilled!

Just look at this ‘Cherry Tree Lane’ collection and you understand! It’s amazingly beautiful and so inspiring. I picked up the biggest flourish sticker I found from the sticker sheet included to the collection and used it as the main element on my page.

Then to give dimension and details, I used lots of collectables (yep, my favorite!) to create layers. And of course separated all by using 3D foam.

As far as I remember I have always been sad about the brown color of our other horse, but this collection finally turned my sadness into happiness – even my sweet mare looks pretty even though she is brown as dirt. These papers will be used to the last tiny piece!img_0390

I hope you feel inspired!

Thank you for stopping by!

Dreams and Cherry Tree Lane

January 17, 2017

I absolutely adore the stunning new ‘Cherry Tree Lane’ collection with it’s vintage inspired papers and rich colour palette that is just timeless! While going through the papers I was drawn to the softness of the blue / grey  of the ‘Quill’ paper (P2227) and couldn’t wait to play with it and mix it in with the soft pink of the florals. The colours set off the black and white photos I used perfectly!

15302288_10154155599973583_1737107369_oI used ‘QUILL’ (P2227) as my background paper. Using a second piece of the paper I adhered strips of the reverse side and then covered with white Gesso:

Once the White Gesso was dry I covered the page with a layer of Clear Gesso. Once dry I lightly sprayed with Kaiser Mist in Winter Grey:

Next I cut out some of the gorgeous floral images from the TELEGRAPH paper (P2223). I adhered my two photos to my background paper using foam tape and then started embellishing with the cut out floral images, the Cherry Tree Lane Collectables, Paper Doilly and one of the postcards from the LETTERS Specialty Paper (PS476). These were all arranged to create flow diagonally across my page:

Finally I added in a few more embellishments to add dimension and texture across the page:

Kaisercraft products used: P2223 ‘Telegraph’ | P2227 ‘Quill’ | PS476 Letters | SS329 Cherry Tree Lane Sticker Sheet | CT872 Cherry Tree Lane Collectables | CD101 Coconut cardstock | FL592 Flourish Pack Hello | FL593 Flourish Pack Feathers | EM405 Paper Doilly | ST928 Clear Stickers Life | SB700 Silver Rhinestones | RS408 Crystal Sparklets | KM112 Kaiser Mist Winter Grey

Other: White and Clear Gesso

The Collectables that are part of each collection are a fabulous way of adding layers without adding too much bulk to your page:

The Flourish Packs have a wonderful range of shapes to use on your projects and can be used raw like I have on this page or can be altered using a variety of mediums such as ink, paint or sprays:

Thank you for joining me today and I hope you have as much fun playing with the amazing Cherry Tree Lane Collection as I have!

Happy crafting

Layouts P.S I Love You Terhi Koskinen

‘Cherish’ scrapbook layout by Terhi Koskinen

December 21, 2016

Hello Kaisercraft friends!

Terhi Koskinen here to share you my new big love – the collection ‘P.S I Love You’! I’m usually not the biggest fan of anything romantic, but these beautifully patterned papers have melted my heart completely. Now, let me show what I created.

Choosing the right collectables for this layout was like eating candy, everything was so sweet. I took some die cuts from 6×6 Paper Pad, and some lace stickers from Sticker Sheet to create something vertical for the page – otherwise the design is really horizontal which highlights the photograph the best.

The background is made by splashing Kaiser Mist to white cardstock. It’s easy, messy, and fun way to create your own unique background, and relaxing too. I also did some stamping to give details on the background.

I’m sure this collection is used to the last piece, it is so adorable and can be used to so many crafts: scrapbooking, cardmaking, artjournaling (especially the stamp set!), you name it.

Thank you so much for coming here today!
