Dreaming of A Holiday

Happy Monday, its a new week and on the Kaisercraft Blog this week we have the theme of Dream Catchers!  Dream Catchers are featured in one of the gorgeous new collections for the month of June, Boho Dreams.  Today I am sharing three projects; some Dream Catcher cards, a Beyond the Page Wall Art and a Pocket Scrapping Travel Album with the Just Landed Collection.  I also have a video of the Travel Album to share...so settle back, make yourself a cup of something nice to drink and enjoy a little Kaisercraft inspiration...

Project One - Dream Catcher Cards

I made a set of three Dream Catcher Cards using the new Kaisercraft Decorative Die: DD754 Dream Catcher.

These cards were so much fun to make : )  I followed the same sketch for each of the three cards, just changed up the elements a  little so that each card is unique.

Project Three: How to Make your Own Travel Pocket Style ScrapBook

For My Travel Album I chose to make a Pocket Style Scrapbook featuring the amazing new collection for June; Just Landed.

Step One: Gather Kaisercraft Supplies

I purchased the D-Ring Album to match this collection and Multi Pocket Pages in three different designs.

Step Two: Gather Photos

I had some old photographs from 2007 when we went to Japan for my cousin's wedding.  Because of the large quantity of photos I had from this trip I decided to make my Album in the Pocket-Style of Scrapping.

Step Three: Gather Mementos

I also had a pile of ticket stubs, maps, brochures and coins that I had collected on the trip.  I wanted to incorporate these into my Album so that everything about the trip was together in the one place and could be enjoyed.

Step Four: Slip Photos into Pockets

My next job was to put all the photos into the Pocket Pages in my Album.  I left some spaces in the album for Title cards that I felt needed a little bit of journalling.   If there wasn't enough photos to fill a page a left a space for a filler card.  In this example below I had two spaces at the top of the pocket page.

Step Five: Make Title Cards and Filler Cards

My last job was to make the Title Cards and Filler Cards.  I counted up how many horizontal cards I needed and how many vertical cards I needed.  I made a few generalised cards that could fit in any place in the album.  I also made a few more specific cards that referred directly to certain events in the album.

These are fun little cards to make up, a small 6x4 inch space.  I used a lot of stamps from the Just Landed collection, stickers, collectables and the little wooden embellishments.

This is an example of a typical page in the album.

I used lots of Chipboard Letters to make titles on my Title Cards.  I sprayed the chipboard with Kaiser Mists to match the colours in the collection.

On the last page of the album we had a couple of airplane photos so I used some of the P2103 Sign Posts Paper to create an airplane picture to finish.

It is quite difficult to get the idea of what the album looks like just with photographs so I have made a little video of the album so you can see it a little better.  I also included a few process clips of how I put together a few of the Title Cards.
