a SMILE is CONTAGIOUS {kaisercraft & merly impressions}

hello crafty friends!

it is AUGUST already and today i would like to share a layout i created for MERLY IMPRESSIONS' blog. this month i got to work with the most amazing collection from KAISERCRAFT's newest release – FLY FREE {available at MERLY IMPRESSIONS' online store}. 


to create my background i used KAISERCARD coconut weave cardstock, which i layered on GAL PAL pattern paper. before adhering the two layers i used a PRIMA marketing mask and TIM HOLTZ distress ink pads {SHABBY SHUTTERS and PICKED RASPBERRY} to create the flowery pattern. then i stamped the edge using KAISERCRAFT ink pad BARK and CLEAR STAMP film edges, and ruffled the edges with PAPER DISTRESSER.

to finish the design of my background i stamped the small butterflies from the FLY FREE collection stamp set and added the leafy sticker border from the 12″ STICKER sheet.

to frame my picture i used pattern papers and die cuts from the mini PAPER PAD and the COLLECTABLES pack.

the large butterflies i fussy cut from the BOND gloss paper and altered them with STICKLES glitter glue – STAR DUST.

the birds corner is also from the BOND gloss paper. i embossed the birds and adhered them with MOUNTING foam tape.

 for my title i used fussy cut words from the BESTIE pattern paper.

to finish off my design i added a few paper flowers – paper blooms HOT PINK and mini paper blooms – COCONUT.

here is a list with most of the products used on my layout:

i hope you enjoyed today’s post!

have a lovely creative month!

hugs 'n smiles,
