Kaisercraft Romantique Layout


Are you loving the Romantique Collection as much as I am?
There are lots of lovely pastel colours in this collection, but today I picked out the more natural tones to suit my photograph.

This collection has a beautiful page of butterflies.  I adore butterflies and I love to use them in my projects.  They make creating so easy.  I fussy cut some from this paper and then used them in my Layout.


P2426 Primrose

Templates

I also wanted to use a new Template:


IT455 6x6 Designer Template - Fleur Damask
and one of my old favourites:


IT001 Designer Templates - Cherry Blossom

I filmed a Process Video of how I made the layout if you would like to take a look...


Decorative Dies

I used two Decorative Dies in my Layout:


DD547 - Circle Vines

and my trusty favourite:


DD757 Large Flourishes

I wove these dies in and out of the butterflies in my diagonal design.

Kaisercraft Summer Splash Beach Tags with Process Video

Kaisercraft Summer Splash Tags by Alicia McNamara

Hello Crafty Friends,

The task over at the Kaisercraft Blog today was to come up with a tip to share on how to use the Summer Splash Specialty Paper and a creative project to match.


Kaisercraft Summer Splash Tags by Alicia McNamara

I decided to cut the Specialty Paper up and use it on some Beachy tags.

I also misted it to change the colour as well.  I felt like it needed a bit more colour to match my already bright tags.

Romantique Publication Layout with Instructions

Kaisercraft Romantique Layout by Alicia McNamara
Hello Crafty Friends,

Life has been busy...I'm just hopping on to share a Publication Layout in this month's Kaisercraft Magazine.  I made this with the Romantique Collection.  I found a pink photo to scrap...me in a pink t-shirt! Ben took this of me out in the backyard one afternoon as he was taking photos of the boys.  I was sitting on the edge of the garden watching on.  Its kind of a contemplative photo and I thought it went well with the sticker title...which I guess is true and kind of scary at the same time!

"Every single moment you are writing the story of your life."


This Layout took me days to make, I'll admit it.  It sat on the kitchen bench for ages while I tweaked it.  Some come quicker than others, this was a slow one.

I have written instructions for this Layout that can be found on the Kaisercraft Blog here.
Or you can read them here:

Kaisercraft Summer Splash Layout ~ Featuring Stamping

Kaisercraft Summer Splash Layout by Alicia McNamara

Hello Crafty Friends,

Its heating up here on the Gold Coast.  We have had our air conditioner pumping the last couple of days.  It seems like Summer has hit and what a great time for one of Kaisercraft's new Collections - Summer Splash!

Kaisercraft Clear Stamps

CS314 ~ Summer Splash Clear Stamps

Kaisercraft Summer Splash Collection

The job over at the Kaisercraft Blog today was to make a creative project featuring the Clear Stamp Set.  I chose to scrap this photo of my cousin Mat in the surf.  Mat has been surfing his whole life and he is very talented at it.  This photo made its way down the family grapevine.  When I saw it I saved it away for a Beachy layout.

Kaisercraft Summer Splash Layout by Alicia McNamara

I used a Template and some glossy Texture Paste mixed with white paint to create the white water drops on my page.  Then I used the Clear Stamp Set and ink pads to add some drops and bubbles for the ocean.  I stamped the title "Summer Time" - even though Mat surfs all year long!

I had fun getting ink to create this layout.  Thanks so much for stopping by to see it : )
