Kaisercraft Inspiration

This is my first post as a Guest Designer for Scrappin’ Patch. I am very happy to be chosen as part of the Scrappin’ Patch team for 2012. Thank you Adrienne.

I was given some of the Kaisercraft Little Toot range to design with. This is such a fun line for little boys, but would also work wonderfully for road trip and holiday projects as it is travel and transport based.

Sunshine & Success

To replicate this layout you will need the following: off-white cardstock, like this one from Bazzill; Kaisercraft Little Toot ‘Bang’, ‘Honk’ and ‘Road Trip’ (specialty) papers; Kaisercraft Little Toot chipboard elements; Imaginisce Berrylicious die-cut phrases; Fancy Pants buttons; Green Tara ‘Sage’ fringe ribbon; double sided tape, foam dots/ tape, blue ink pen.


Usually I try to match the theme of the layout to the photograph. But for this layout, I decided to use the Little Toot ‘Honk’ paper and take the theme of the travelling for a more meaningful layout for a change. Sometimes doing something different than (your) usual is not only a challenge, but ends up with a great result.

 


A bit of dimension always makes a layout more pleasing to the eye. You don’t have to go overboard, just a few dimensional elements will do.

Favourite Big Boy Toy

For this layout I used a 5x7 photo, but a standard 4x6 would work equally as well.

To replicate this layout you will need the following: off-white cardstock, like this one from Bazzill; Kaisercraft Little Toot ‘Bang’, ‘Honk’ and ‘Road Trip’ (specialty) papers; Kaisercraft Little Toot chipboard elements; Echo Park A Boy’s Life cardstock stickers; My Minds Eye Lime Twist (Fly A Kite ‘Spring’) cardstock stickers; a paper clip, like these ones from Basic Grey; double-sided tape, blue ink pen.

If you are using large mats or blocks of paper that are going to get covered, it is a good idea to cut the centre of the paper out to be used on another project, like this:


Here is a little ‘how to’ for this layout:


Layer and adhere the photo mats, then adhere the photo.


Adhere the embellishments, starting with the zig-zag strip down the left, then the journaling spot and paper clip on the top right.


Adhere the paper strip, then chipboard shape. Adhere letter stickers.



Adhere phrase sticker and half journaling spot to finish.

Thanks for looking.

In a couple of weeks I will have two more projects from the Kaisercraft Little Toot range for you. Until then, take care.
