Good morning! :) It's Lisa here again, and I hope you're all having a lovely Friday-- the weekend is so close I can almost taste it. Let's hope we get some lovely spring weather for it.
Today I'm sharing a couple of layouts I've made using Kaisercraft'sOutdoor Trail range, which is perfectly suited for all those pages featuring camping, fishing, hunting and other sporty pursuits. Having said that, here's where I admit that I have absolutely ZERO photographs of any of those activities, so I used the range to showcase general outdoors-y style pictures, and it worked perfectly for those, too. :)
My first layout has a general travel theme, based around a photo taken from the passenger seat while we were on a country drive one weekend. I used a mix of the Frontier and Bush papers as a background, along with a strip cut from the bottom of one of the sheets featuring a map pattern. All of Kaisercraft's papers feature a little "bonus" strip of pattern along the bottom edge, and they're fun to use on layouts and cards to add a little something extra, or to fill in a gap.
Around the edges, I've layered a selection of Collectables, ribbon, leaves, wooden veneers and other assorted ephemera from my stash. A couple of closer shots are below:
The second layout has a base of cream cardstock, which I've sprayed with mist. I've used the Bushpaper again--but this time, the botanical print side, with a photograph of my husband at the river on top of it.
I cut out the deer head and the half-compass images from the Hunt paper and arranged them around the photo, along with a variety of other embellishments in the same tones. I inked the wooden veneer heart with some Tim Holtz Walnutdistress stain, and the little bird on a branch veneer is from Prima. Some leaves, ribbon and Collectables round it all off.
Again, a couple of closer pictures:
And that's it! :) For those of you attending the Kaisercraft evening at the shop tonight, both of these layouts will be on display, should you want a closer look. For those of you further afield, the Outdoor Trail range is available here.
As always, thanks for looking, and I'll see you again later in the month.
