My biggest challenge using these fabulous Kaiser Save the Date papers is whose photos to scrap – I have so many birthdays to choose from and the papers are perfect for male or female and young or old – so I am loving them!!!
Today I have selected my daughters 6th birthday...I had these gorgeous photos to scrap and loved the colours in the papers!! Tracy has fabulous co-ordinating embellishments for the papers too so today I am going to showcase some of them for you!!!
I have started with plain white cardstock as its a great backdrop for the beautiful colours in the papers!! I also like to ink my papers to give them more definition on the white background. Tracy has an awesome collection of inks instore Here!!
I have used the Streamers paper to cut a large banner and adhered it to the left side of the white card. I have then used the Milestone paper as I loved the mini icy poles !! To balance this I have then used the striped side of the Invite paper .
I also love papers where you can cut bits out and use them and in this instance I have cut out the Happy birthday title and banner for the photo from the Hip hippaper.
I love ricrac – you can add it to anything and the shape and the colour give your layout a pop!! In this instance I have run a string of pink ricrac across the bottom of the stiped paper – my photos will sit just one the ricrac. I have even popped the smaller photo up on popdots so the photo pops off the page.
I have then handcut the banners and added them after I have adhered my photos. This is your basic layout done and then the fun bits – adding some funky embellishments to distinguish your page!
I love the white stemmed star flowers and I have tied them together with a little piece of twine – love the stuff!!! To balance that I have then added a cute resin flower in white.
At the smaller photo I have used one of the scraps of paper and stamped thepresent stamp and cut it out – I have then added pop dots tot he gift so it stands out from the page. I love the Happy birthday present pin and the green goes so well with the papers – I have slid this in behind the stamped gift.
I have then adhered the cut out HappyBirthday and added the gorgeous rainbow charm – LOVE these !!! and a couple more resin flowers.
For me the journaling is important – I like to record the event and what my thoughts were when I scrapped the photo ! I think it adds to the memory!!
SO get instore and check out the amazing range of charms, ribbons, resin and flowers !! Just for starters!!!
