hello scrappy friends!
as many of you know, there is a monthly challenge going on at MERLY IMPRESSIONS. this month's theme is "HOME - what is mean to me" and here is my interpretation -
i decided to do a double-pager for this challenge, because i could never explain what HOME means to me in one page.
to create my layout i used the "CURIOSITY" collection from KAISERCRAFT.
for the first page i used KAISERCRAFT vanilla weave cardstock and different pattern papers from the CURIOSITY collection.
the large background doily i made with WE R MEMORY KEEPERS lucky 8 punch, eccentric pattern paper and licorice weave cardstock. i spattered some red glimmer mist and added red rhinestones to give an artsy effect to my background.
for the banner i used stickers from the curiosity collection sticker sheet and the die cut key is from the COLLECTABLES pack from the same paper line.
the letters for my title i made from cardstock, using MAKING MEMORIES' foam stamps alphabet and KAISERCOLOUR paint - red. after the paint has dried, i fussy cut the letters and adhered them to my page with mounting foam type.
the words for my jouranlling i fussy cut from the pattern paper.
to embellish my layout i used fussy cut elements from pattern papers, die cut flourishes, paper roses and cardstock images from the COLLECTABLES pack.
the chipboard key is altered with black embossing powder.
i decided to design the second page in PROJECT LIFE style. and the CURIOSITY collection has the perfect designs for it. i used the KAISERCRAFT d ring multi pocket pages for my layout.
i inked the edges, decorated then with pretty pictures and wrote my own journalling on my tailor-made cards.
the collection is so easy to work with - you can mix and match pictures, papers and embellishments in any way you like!
here is a list with the KAISERCRAFT products i used on this layout:
i hope you enjoyed today's post!
and don't forget - you have until november 12th to join the MERLY IMPRESSIONS october "home - what is means to me" challenge!
