Kaisercraft DT - Blue Bay Collection

Hi Everyone,

What a fabulous way to start the new year by sharing Kaisercraft's gorgeous new Blue Bay Collection!!  There are so many beautiful papers in this shabby chic range, that it was difficult to choose which ones to use.  I think you will have to get in quick at your local scrap store with this stunning collection, as it will be flying out the door!!

“Beautiful Moments” Layout 
For my 1st layout I combined the weatherboard side of the "Sea Breeze" pp with the reverse side of the "Sapphire" pp using the lacy edge of the weatherboard paper to create a border, which I layered with the torn corrugated cardstock and a floral sticker border from the matching 12x12 sticker sheet.
I arranged some of the matching collectables around my photo with a few mini paper blooms, sea breeze sparklets and a wooden vine flourish.  The white section of the background was altered with the honeycomb texture stamp with the sea breeze ink pad, then randomly mistied over the top.

“Smile” Layout
  On my second layout, I framed the floral side of the "Sea Breeze" pp with the creamy white reverse side of the "Placid" pp  and the black reservse side of the "Misty" pp.  I altered the background by coating the centre section randomly with gesso, then masked over this using the Lattice template with texture paste, and applying aqua mist over the top to make the masked lattice more pronounced.  The last step to create my background was randomly stamping with one of the stamps from the matching Blue Bay clear stamp set and the vintage fence texture stamp in black.

  To frame my photo I layered fussy cut the frames and the flowers  from the "Azure" gloss speciality pp and the "Sapphire" pp, combined with sections from both sides of the  "Misty" pp and a sticker border from the 12x12 sticker sheet.  I also used one of the new Decorative Dies to cut out the lacy floral border tucked under my photo, then finished off with one of the new "Delicate Words" clear stickers as my title... absolutely love these!!
