Inspired by the April Kaisercraft mood board, I pulled out a piece of 12 x 12 patterned paper from the Kaisercraft Paradiso Collection titled ‘Holiday’ that I have been hording for far too long.
The colours and the imagery were perfect for this photograph of stingrays from my honeymoon in Port Macquarie. And since I didn’t want to cover up the paper, I settled quickly on a horizontal band layout.
A thin strip of vellum helps differentiate the photo from the image.
The photo is framed with a Becky Higgins cardstock frame from the Everyday collection.
On top of it, the words discover and explore from the Kaisercraft wood florishes ‘nautical’ set draw the eye across the photo. I picked them up at a scrapbooking store in Port Macquarie during said honeymoon so using them on this particular layout adds a nice touch of nostalgia for me.
The embellishment clusters around the wood veneer are kept very simple, focusing on two punched scallops from a paper from Kaisercrafts sandy toes collection, which coordinates nicely with Paradiso..
Finally, white foam glitter alphas from American crafts form a title in the remaing space to the left of the photo.
And with that the layout is done.
I seriously like this paper so much I can’t even bring myself to cut off the branding strip!
