Kaisercraft "Something Blue" - by Linda Eggleton

Good morning everyone & welcome :)
This month I am lucky enough to be creating with yet another gorgeous Kaisercraft range -
the newly released Something Blue Collection
This is a perfect collection for wedding photos - as it was designed & intended.
The diecuts in the collectables pack are amazing, as always....full of little tags, tabs, doilies, hearts, love/wedding verses of all shapes & sizes, and more....all perfect for your wedding pages
& also for wedding cards.
So first up, that's what I have created...a wedding layout of my DH & I on our
wedding day, some 27 years ago!
"Mr & Mrs"
For me, the papers & photos that I'm working with usually determine the style of layout
that I will create with it....and this collection called for a more formal layout with clean straight lines.
I left the background as is for this page, as the paper is utterfly gorgeous and truly shines on its own.

I've clustered a few Green Tara & Kaisercraft flowers with some 2Crafty Indian Feathers
along with a few of the diecuts from the collectables pack. 
The 2Crafty feathers have been lightly coated in gesso only.

Keep Calm & Say I do!
I just love that saying & had to use it on this page - it is from the Honeymoon paper
(see links at the bottom of my post)
I've also used a heap of little tabs from the Collectables pack in & around my paper layers.

A little bit of strip journaling with the basics of where/when & to break up all the straight lines I've punched a border strip in black from the reverse side of the Honeymoon paper.
More journaling is on the back of the layout.

And here is an overall view of the main area of the page - My gosh, we look so young!
Next up I've created a non-wedding page with the same collection.
"You & Me"
(based on the June sketch at Life.Paper.Scrapbook)

Again, lots of clean straight lines for this one....but I have added some subtle background work with some splashes of glimmermist here & there. (the textured background work is a bit hard to see)

This is one of the titles from the collectables pack that I've put onto foam tape to
give it some dimension on the page.

And a few more pieces from the collectables pack...a group of hearts that I've layered with foam tape & also the "extra special" banner.  And my usual strip journaling :)

I've tucked a few of the diecut tags at the side of my photo & a little tab at the top,
all from the collectables pack.  Pic is of my Dad & I having a night out for my last birthday :)

And here is a view of my cluster

Kaisercraft, Green Tara & Petaloo flowers, collectables diecuts, a Flutterby flair & some diecut leaves using my cuttlebug.

The background work is rather soft on the page, so it's a bit hard to see....hopefully you can get an idea of it here in this close up.  I mixed some gelato shavings in with my modelling paste & after working out where my papers were going to go, I randomly spread the modelling paste over the Teresa Collins stencil & finished it off with some splashes of glimmermist.
 I love the colours on this page...that tan colour just seems to really lift
everything on the page perfectly <3
Well, that is all from me for today...thank you so much for visiting & any comments you may leave.
Until next time...have a great weekend & happy scrapping! xx
