Anna's Craft Cupboard Creations


Today I have another couple of layouts to share created for Anna's Craft Cupboard with the Kaiser Blae & Ivy Collection.

This collection is available at instore HERE.

For my layout 'simply the best', I have worked the collection by concentrating on the more neutral soft blue and green hues. The colours are lovely, just not ones that I am usually drawn to. But with saying that, I do like these colours and they work well together and in the end, I was reasonably happy with how it turned out.

'Simply the best'

My girls simply have the best way of filling my life with sunshine - I love seeing the world through their eyes...

The photo is of my Miss E - Just a random snap captured one afternoon as she sat on our back steps.

The reverse side of the 'fish' paper - Fossick creates the base.

First of, I played with some texture paste and a Tim Holtz Flourish mask, then gave it a light misting of Tattered Angels Chalkboard Mist.
I then added various patterned paper die cut and punched leaf shapes which have been layered and arranged and around the photo.

The little birdies and thistle elements have been cut from one Document patterned paper.

And a touch of floral has been added with some sage paper blooms.

Materials: Kaisercraft Hunt & Gather Patterned Papers – P700 Fossick, Gloss Specialty PS158 Document, P704 Forage; 12 x 12 SS107 Sticker Sheet, PP848 Paper Pad, Kaisercraft Wood Flourishes- Frames, Kaisercraft Paper Blooms – Sage. Other: Chalkboard Mist, Tim Holtz Flourish Mask, Ink, Leaf/Branch Punch, Leaf Dies, Chipboard Alpha’s.

For my layout 'chillin', I have mixed things up a bit.

I have combined Hunt & Gather with a touch of Miss Nelly and Authentique.

I layered hand cut elements from Miss Nelly ' Her Scent' and Authentique 'Uncommon' papers along with Miss Nelly layered chipboard elements and a floral paper bloom created from the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die and papers from the Hunt & Gather Paper Pad.

The title has been created from computer font and printed out onto cardstock, then cut out. For a bit of shine, I added some glossy accents to the letters.
