Memories are Special

Good morning how are you all? I am very excited to share with you my first ever official video tutorial for Kasiercraft!!!! 

This month we have been sharing with you the stunning Glisten collection and the very elegant Ohh La La. The team have shared some stunning layout dont you think?  

When I get a new range I look for certain things to do with it , say a piece has some things to fussy cut I set that aside and do it while watching tv at night. Then I look for a piece that I can work some mixed media magic on to build up my background for layering, I go for the richer piece, ones which can handle some stamping, inking and texture pastes..... 

Kaisercraft Products: Ohh La La Collection: P2182 Oui Oui | SS323 Sticker Sheet | CT866 Collectables | CS274 Clear Stamps | PP1007 Paper Pad |TM802 Printed Tape |KM102 Kaisermist - Antique Gold | KM111 Kaisermist - White | IP724 Ink Pads- Bark | CS151 Texture Stamp - Tiny Dot|Other: Colour Blast Paste - Gold | Embossing Powder - Gold | Colorshine - Gold

                                Please watch the video to see how this layout was created:

To give your layout a little 3 D effect, double up your Collectables and Stamps, like with the butterfly..... stamp your butterfly on your background then with a little foam mount add your butterfly collectable over the top of it.

Dont be afraid to keep adding to the background with your Kaisercraft Texture Stamps if you keep them off the acrylic block it gives the image a more random effect. 

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, if you give it a go, please leave me a link to go and look at it in the comments. Or why dont you try it to enter this months Kaisercraft October Challenge,
you still have a couple of days to go......

Till next time, have a creative day.

Shop and Crop bonus layout......

Good morning I am here today to show you how to use ever bit of your Shop and Crop Crop kit for October, this is something that I often try to make sure I do, as I am really trying not to add to my ever growing stash..... and lets face it if you have your kit out why not keep going? 

The only thing that I added to this layout is some vellum from my stash and thats good because I am using what I have...... if you dont have vellum you can skip this layer or, you could try and use some baking paper.... it would give you that sheer look without buying anything new.

The Hooray layer is from your packaging on the acrylic shapes..... why throw it out when is so pretty....

Boy verses Girl with Scrapmatts

Good morning how are you all, I am here today with some new piece for Scrapmatts. This time for those with boys / men in our lives. I must say when I only had my boys, layouts where so easy to do, then I had little miss and I got nervous, I mean I had been scrapping 8 years with boy only layouts, how was I meant to do girly? 

Then once I ''mastered'' the girly, it became increasingly hard to scrap boys, or maybe I was more aware of the availability of boy products verses girly ones..... Which made me think how did I do it before? Thank goodness for mixed media, I think that allows your get really creative when doing boy layouts.

Products Used: Kaisercraft Barber Shoppe, CB5132 Chains 01, CB1232 Film Strips 05,CB1229 Chains 02, CB5035 Hot Air Balloons 01
