WARNING! GYMNAST! {merly impressions & kaisercraft}

hello crafty peeps!

i have another fun KAISERCRAFT project to share with you today, i made using a mix of two of KAISERCRAFT’s best collections – GAME ON and LAVENDAR HAZE. i chose this colour combination {black – lavender – aqua – white}, because i think it is perfect for the picture of my sweet goddaughter EMMA. 

 to create my background i used KAISERCARD coconut weave cardstock. i added a layer of lavender colour dotted pattern using KAISERCRAFT bubble wrap background clear stamp. then i added the edge pattern, using the KC lattice background stamp and film edges clear stamp, and the dimensional layer using modelling paste and THE CRAFTER'S WORKSHOP  "mini tile texture" masking template.

to finish off the design of my background i splattered DYLUSIONS ink sprays on the cardstock and added a purple edge with RANGER liquid pearls lavender lace

 i created the various paper strips and embellishments using different pattern papers – from the GAME ON collection: PERFORM, ATTITUDE; and from the LAVENDAR HAZE collection: AMETHYST, PUCE GLOSS PAPER and die cuts from the matching Collectables packages – GAME ON, equipment and LAVENDAR HAZE

for my title i used an aqua sentiment block from the PERFORM pattern paper.

after i arranged my embellishments, i doodled the arrows using TIM HOLTZ' layering stencil arrows and a black artistic pen. 

 i’ve added a hidden journalling tag on my page. i cut out the label from KAISERCARD coconut weave cardstock. for the purple lacey pattern i used the corner stamp from the KAISERCRAFT storyteller clear stamp set and for the sentiment – two of the phrases from the blubelle stamp set.

 and of course there can be no layout without rhinestones – black and lace. the pretty coloured baker twine is from WE R MEMORY KEEPERS – sew easy line. i used twine spool black and twine spool purple. 

here is a list with some of the products i used on this project:

i hope you enjoyed today’s post!
