FAMILY CHRISTMAS {kaisercraft & merly impressions}

hello scrappy friends!

it is almost the end of the month and i would like to share my third and last layout i created for MERLY IMPRESSIONS' blog. and of course i used the amazing KAISERCRAFT’s SILVER BELLS collection (available at MERLY IMPRESSIONS online store). 

for this layout i chose to work with a picture of all of us at CHRISTMAS -


for my background i used KAISERCRAFT ballet weave cardstock, KAISERCARD coconut weave cardstock and MERRY CHRISTMAS pattern paper. i cut off 0.5 cm from each side of the coconut cardstock, ruffled its edges with PAPER DISTRESSER and adhered it to the ballet cardstock using KAISERCRAFT 12mm double-sided tape. then i sprinkled KAISERMIST spray ink – turquoise and put it away to dry. 

then i took the MERRY CHRISTMAS pattern paper and cut off 1.5 cm from both of its sides, ruffled its edges with the PAPER DISTRESSER and added the snowflake-like dimensional layer using CHRISTMAS QUARTERS 12×12 stencil – the snowflakes square and TEXTURE PASTE. after the paste has dried i sprayed KAISERMIST spray ink – turquoise and red on top and adhered the pattern paper on top of the cardstock base.

i added a blue sticker edge from the 12″ STICKER sheet to finish my background design.

then i measured the WREATH die-cut paper and cut off the excessive parts so it would fit in one of the corners. to adhered it i used MOUNTING foam tape

for the layers under my picture i used KAISERCARD coconut weave cardstock for the first one and different patter papers and die cut borders from the mini PAPER PAD and the COLLECTABLES pack. i adhered them together using MOUNTING foam tape
the title banners are from the COLLECTABLES pack and the 12″ STICKER sheet.

to decorate the die cut embellishments i used RHINESTONES – soft pink.

as a finishing touch i added some more pink and blue foil baubles from the FOIL BAUBLES pattern paper and from the pattern paper mini PAPER PAD. i embossed them slightly and adhered them to my layout with MOUNTING foam tape

to “hang” the baubles i used RHINESTONE strips – pink and RHINESTONE strips – ice.

i hope i managed to inspire you today! 

and don’t forget to come by in a few days as i'm going to announce the newest KAISERCRAFT release {which will be available at MERLY IMPRESSIONS online store}!

hugs 'n smiles,
