Kaisercraft Island Escape Layout Publication, Set of Three Cards and a Question for You!

Kaisercraft Island Escape Layout by Alicia McNamara
Layout

This is a Layout I made for the Kaisercraft February Workshop Magazine using Island Escape.  You can download the magazine for free here.


This is how I made the Layout:


Materials Used
PS479 Rattan – Embossed, P2248 Kahakai, CT874 Collectables, PP1014 Paper Pad, IP727 Ink Pad – Lagoon, Flourish Pack – FL594 Life’s a Beach, RS402 Rhinesones – Island Lagoon, F627 Paper Blooms – Coconut, Decorative Dies – DD550 Coral, DD745 Fishing Net, BRB606 Organza Ribbon, CD101 - 12x12 Weave Card Stock- Coconut.
Other: Cheesecloth

Instructions:

1. Cut RATTAN to 29.5 x 29.5 cm and ink edges with Lagoon Ink.  Layer onto Coconut Cardstock.  This provides the base of the layout. 

2. Choose pages from the Paper Pad to rip and layer behind photograph.  Ink some edges with Lagoon Ink.  Cut “Summer Vibes” and “Live the Adventure” 4x6 cards from KAHAKI.  Layer underneath photo.  Secure layered photograph onto middle of the base of the layout.

3. Cut Fishing Net Decorative Die out of Coconut Card Stock and Coral Decorative Die from papers in the Paper Pad.  Layer with some Cheese Cloth to two corners of the layered photograph.  Add in some Palm Tree and Leaf Collectables to these two corners. 

4. Embellish with some wooden flourishes, organza ribbon tied into bows, Coconut Blooms and Island Lagoon Rhinestones.

Questions

Just a few questions I have for you, what do you prefer to make...Cards or Layouts?  Do you find it tricky to make a Layout and then get your head back into card-making?  Or do you make mainly cards and then find it hard to get back into making a Layout?  Do you find you need a different head-space for the different sized projects? I'm just curious to ask.  I find I struggle going from layouts to cards and back again.  I haven't found a way to do the same techniques on both yet...but I'm working on it...I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below xx
