3 Amazing layouts by Nicole Nowosad, Leanne Allinson and Gretchen McElveen

Today, I am sharing with you a quick layout, made using lots of KI Memories products! It all starts with this amazing Lace cardstock background paper:

Sunshine layout by Nicole Nowosad

I chose a few words from the paper and added some patterned paper strips in behind them by cutting them down and adhering to the back of the lace cardstock.

Next, I added a ruffle sticker to the inside of one of the decorative edges of the lace cardstock and ruffled it up:

Next, I stamped a few embellishments, using the Bella Blvd. Kiss Me stamps and added them over the stickers on my page:

Hi Everyone!  It's Leanne here today to share with you some leaf to feather inspiration.  Feathers have been a trend in scrapbooking for a little while now and I thought I would join in with the craze.  However, I didn't really have anything in my stash the would suffice until I spied the Echo Park Sweet Girl (IC0524)clear stamp collection. Together with the leaf/branch image, some acrylic paint and paint brush I created my own peacock feathers.

Peacock Zoo by Leanne Allinson

I started by loading my paint brush with navy acrylic paint and applied it to the centre of each leaf.  Working quickly and using a peacock feather as reference, I added the other blues, greens and gold to the rest of the clear stamp. 

The next step is a little bit of trial and error.  Gently apply the stamp to white cardstock.  Don't apply too much pressure as the paint will mix together instead of creating a soft image.  Allow to dry completely before fussy cutting the "feathers" and adhering to your layout.

stamps:  Authentique Keep Me Posted (IC0231); Echo Park Sweet Girl (SC0524)
ink: Close To My Heart (chocolate, lagoon, sweet leaf)
patterned paper: Lily Bee, My Mind's Eye.
other: cardstock; Sassafras stickers, staples, acrylic paint, glitter thickers, Greatest View badge/flair.


Hi there! Gretchen here with a layout to share with you using some of the very pretty KI Memories Vintage Charm collection.  

I combined the Vintage Charm with the Mini Celebrations We are Family patterned paper and ruffled stickers. These 2 collections work really well together! I used the “B” side of the “Carte Postale” patterned paper (it looks like notebook paper!) as the base of the layout. Then I added a sheet of the “Musical Hearts” lace cardstock on top of it. I adore the look of the hearted lace paper as the background of a page! 

After creating the base for the layout, I built the rest of the layout from there. I added a little more patterned paper, a single picture, journaling strips, ruffled stickers, some string, and several punched butterflies to complete the layout. Thanks for looking!
