Hello everyone Connie Nichol here! I was fortunate enough to travel to the Big Island of Hawaii last fall for my 25th wedding anniversary. This was the first time I have ever been to Hawaii, and I was simply blown away. It was absolutely stunning, about how I would picture paradise. Needless to say, I took a lot of pictures while I was there. Luckily for me, Kaisercraft released the Paradiso Collection shortly after I returned from the Big Island. This line is simply perfect for scrapping my vacation pictures. One of things I really love about Kaisercraft collections is that they usually have a package of die cuts to go with the papers. These die cuts are fantastic – there are so many in the package and they are just the perfect thing to embellish layouts, make cards and just generally have fun with.
To scrapbook this picture of my husband and myself (thanks Shauna Cameron for the picture!), I simply matted it, placed it on one of the papers in the Paradiso collection and embellished with stickers and the matching die cuts. I used a lot of foam squares by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to pop up the die cuts. I love some dimension on a layout.
Just for fun, since it was a beach layout and all, I added some ‘sand’ with this product from Viva Colour. I just spread a thin layer around the bottom of the layout with the back of a butter knife and let it dry. It looked just like real sand and added some very neat texture.
Add some texture to your next layout.
