BEAUTIFUL & ADORED {merly impressions & kaisercraft}

hello crafty friends!

i know i've neglected my blog the last few months, but what can i say - life happens most unexpectedly and i was busy cooping with it... now everything is back to "normal" - as normal as it can be in a house with two kids, two cats and everything that comes with them - and i promise to share all those projects i've created, but never posted here.

i'm starting with a layout i created for MERLY IMPRESSIONS' blog featuring the amazing SAGE and GRACE collection from KAISERCRAFT {available at MERLY IMPRESSIONS' online store}. the shabby chic images and the lovely colour palette of this collection, makes it perfect for any girly picture you might have.

"BEAUTIFUL & ADORED"





decorative die - MINI FOLIAGE
clear stamp - HONEYCOMB

MARTHA STEWART - edge punch

and here are more close ups and some TIPS&TRICKS on how did it -

tailor-made BACKGROUND tutorial in a few easy steps:

STEP 1: alter the cardstock using the designer template and KAISERMIST.


TIP! flip the template to create a mirror effect, but don't forget to clean it first!


STEP 2: use corrugated cardboard and pattern paper to design the background layers.


STEP 3: once you know what colour paper you would like to use, distress the white cardstock using distress ink and clear stamps.


STEP 4: shape the borders of the middle pattern paper with an edge punch and smudge GESSO onto the corrugated cardstock.


STEP 5: flick KAISERMIST - different colours - on top of the different layers.


close ups of the ready project: 


you can use a combination of die-cut words and stickers to create your title.




use rhinestones and pearls to decorate the die cuts from the COLLECTABLES pack.





THANK YOU for stopping by today!

have a lovely & creative WEEK!

hugs 'n smiles,
