be yourself - tutorial {MERLY IMPRESSIONS & KAISERCRAFT}

hello scrappy friends!

recently i got a whole bunch of photos of my daughter from her friend's 10th birthday party. the girls had a dress up party with a professional photographer and the pictures are AMAZING!

here is one of them on my latest creation - 


i created this layout for MERLY IMPRESSIONS as a tutorial full with tips and tricks on how to add more layers to your page. i used he amazing KAISERCRAFT collection “storyteller”.

if you know me and my style, probably you’ve noticed that i LOVE layers! i can add embellishments and paper strips and fussy cut elements all day long!

i started with a layer of stamped images and paint splashes on my background paper {FEATURE pattern paper}. i used KAISERCRAFT clear stampsfilm edges, diamonds, lattice and storyteller collection set with different colours ink pads – brown, blue, olive green.

then i layered my picture on a slightly larger pattern paper from the 6.5″ paper pad from the same collection and i added a few rhinestones “split pea” to embellish the frame.

then i started layering my design. i used fussy cut flowers from both MEMOIR and REMINISCE pattern paper and die cut roses from the COLLECTABLES pack.

i added extra stripes of pattern paper, cut out as banners to fill in the space between my layers. TIP: don’t put your double sided tape or glue at the edge of the embellishments/pattern paper. like this you can always tuck in something extra later. 

i added the word banners from the COLLECTABLES pack and adhered them with mounting foam tape. to embellish them i used orange twine tread.

as you can see you can use all kinds of materials to create layers on your page. i even added some of the fabulous KAISERCRAFT lace – cream coloured and resin flowers - dahlia.

i hope you enjoyed checking out my project for today!
