Sail Away - Kaisercraft

Hi there everyone. today I am showcasing the latest paper collection from Kaisercraft….."Sail Away"
These are great papers for all your travel, sea side escapes and great for masculine projects and cards too. I have created 2 layouts, a few cards and a tutorial on creating you own unique twine nautical frame. I also created a very simple travel mini book. First up, are my cards, some are simple ones created with the Sail Away stamp set. The others are created with the Paper pad, sticker sheet and the packet of Collectables from the paper collection.

"Happy Birthday " card by Adriana Bolzon

 Kaisercraft materials: Kraft square card stock CD509, EF231 Embossing folder anchors, Paper Pad PP985, Collectables CT844.

"Bon Voyage" card by Adriana Bolzon

These next set of cards are some very simple ones, created with Kaisercraft Sail Away stamp set CS244, and Sail away paper PP985. So very easy to create.

Next I created a
"Mini Seaside Escape Mini Journal Book"

I love creating little mini books that can be added to a project life page or layout. I created this mini book to showcase the Kaisercraft clear stickers sheets. These clear sticker sheets are fabulous for adhering onto the edges of photos, they look like printed words are printed onto the photos, but they are actually stickers on the photos.   How cool are these :)

Front page -  Materials for Cover & Back  - P1984 Light house paper, Paper Pad PP985, P1987 Cruise, Collectables CT844, Sail Away sticker sheet SS300, String & ribbon.

Page 2 and 3 - Paper Pad PP985, P1985 Rope, Collectables CT844, Sail Away Sticker sheet SS300, Clear sticker words - Inspirational SR929
 Page 2 and 3 - Paper Pad PP985, Collectables CT844, Sail Away Sticker sheet SS300Clear sticker words Life ST928
 Page 4 and 5 - Paper Pad PP985, Collectables CT844, Sail Away Sticker sheet SS300, Clear sticker words Life ST928.

And for my 2 layouts created with Sail Away papers -

and for my last project I thought I would leave the best to the last with a tutorial on how to create your very own twine framed photo for adding to your layout, just like the one in my layout below. This frame just adds a bit of texture and nautical feel to any project.
