Hello! It's Teresa here with my very first post for Artfull Crafts.
Here's a layout I put together with the beautiful and bright new collection from KaiserCraft called Butterfly Kisses:
Told you it was bright!
The specialty paper I used as my base has the butterfly wings already die cut. This took half the work out of putting the layout together. The rest of the layout involved a lot of foam mounting and creating lots of layers. Here's a side view so you can see what I mean:
The KaiserCraft Collectables pack of die cuts makes adding little details so easy. If you're anything like me, and love the fussy-cut look but don't have the time or patience to produce it, the Collectables are for you!
One embellishment I did put together myself was the little word flags poking out the top of the centre photo. I put together a mini tutorial for you to see how quickly they came together.
Adhere the words from the Collectibles pack to scraps of KaiserCraft cardstock.
Place some glue (I prefer PVA for these jobs) on the back, place a toothpick in the glue and fold the cardstock over.
Trim the cardstock down to create a long flag, and cut a chevron into the end opposite the toothpick.
If you don't have the right word in the Collectibles pack, you could stamp one or even write your word out by hand.
I hope you've found this post useful. I'll be back soon to show you what I made with the mess left on the desk from putting together this layout.
