Kaisercraft PS I Love You

Good morning Rikki here today sharing you a layout using the stunning new Kaisercraft Collection - PS I love You..... 


I love this range, the soft, elegant tones perfected for both masculine and feminine layouts, and whats better that ?

Kaisercraft Products; PS I Love You : PS472 Ornate Frames - Diecut | P2213 Pen Pal | PP1010 Paper Pad | CT870 Collectables | Foam Tape T303 | CB153 Corrugated Cardboard | ST927 Love |SB789 Pearls - Chino


One of my favourite things to do is to cut out the frame and pop it up so you have a 3 dimensional effect either use Kaisercraft Foam Tape T303 or some Kaisercraft CB153 Corrugated Cardboard to achieve that effect.

I love the Kaisercraft Clear stickers ST927 Love , its the perfect addition to your layout and because they are clear they just blend in.....


_MG_2278


_MG_2275

Dont forget to cut out some of your feature bits on your page like the postcard and make its a 3 dimensional feature...


_MG_2274


Use some of the sticker sheet SS327 to add an additional feature it also allows you if you didnt get your frame quite straight to hide that little mistake .... mind you theres no such thing as a mistake when it comes to scrapping is all ''artistic interpretation...''


Have a creative day

Reflection

Good morning, how are you all? You may have  noticed its been a while since I was active on my blog, thank goodness for the schedule function!!!


 At the end of October my darling other half, was in a truck accident, he luckily walked away with a fractured neck, and we have a long road till he is back to do what he normally does. But it has thrown me for a loop, how quickly things can change, it pointed out things that need to be in place that need to be done ( always figured we are too young to worry about things like that). It also showed that I dont take enough photos of my love, and I stress too much about little things, not the important things :( 

So I have taken time over the last month not trying to stress about the small things, in between running around to 1000 appointments and seriously trying to get life back into our new 'normal'.  Also I think my blog will change a little too, with sharing some everyday ''normal'' things in between the scrappy things, as then a way to document and always have something on ''paper'' in the digi world.



DH with his new neck companion......


With that its time to get back into the swing of things , that means also finding some sort of mojo so any suggestions will be great !!! 

Till next time, have a creative day
