Be-YOU-tiful & Pitter Patter Layouts (Artfull Crafts)

Good morning! I'm up on the Artfull Crafts Blog today with two layouts from two new Kaisercraft Collections.  My first layout is made with the Pitter Patter Collection, a baby line with vintage imagery and soft pinks and blues.  Of course I had to put my hand up for this line with our beautiful baby girl!

This line was crying out for mixed media, so I used modelling paste mixed with white acrylic paint and a Heidi Swapp Mask, then I mixed two mists to get a pale pink and applied it with a plastic bag, and my final media was black India ink.  I painted the raw "Adore"chipboard with two coats of white paint.  The background paper is called "Peek-a-boo" and I used the B side, which looks exactly as it does (sheet music on one side, and newspaper print on the other.  

The sweet photo is of Sam's hand holding Brielle's hand in hospital when he first met her.  I was so pleased to capture such a sweet candid moment.  I layered several of the 6 x 6 papers and some vellum, all hand cut and distressed with my scissors.  I kept the embellishment to a minimum on this page.

My second page was made with the Be-YOU-tiful collection which is described in the shop as "bringing two of our favourite things together, bright colours and enchanting florals."  You can purchase it here. I chose to scrapbook my final pregnancy photo which Shaun took of me in the hospital at 7am, some 50 minutes before we met our baby girl.  Brielle is 15 weeks old now, its amazing how fast time passes once the baby is born, and how you forget being big and pregnant!

For this layout I focussed on white acrylic paint, stamping and machine stitching.

Kaisercraft always produces such awesome die cut collectables that assist in getting the story recorded!
