Kaisercraft High Tea Baby Mini Album with Video Tutorial

Kaisercraft High Tea Mini Album by Alicia McNamara

Hello Blogging Friends,

Today I am sharing a Baby Girl Mini Album with Video Tutorial.



I made this Album for a friend.  The little girl in the photos is only three months old so there are only photos for the first three months.  The album is designed to hold a photo for every month for the first 12 months.

The Album is made using Kaisercraft's new "High Tea" Collection.

For the pages without a photo I just used a blank square cut from PS485 Floral Wallpaper Embossed.

Kaisercraft Indigo Skies Beyond the Page with Process Video


Kaisercraft Indigo Skies Photo Frame by Alicia McNamara

Are you loving the new Kaisercraft Indigo Skies Collection as much as I am?  It is such a versatile collection that can be used to scrap the boys or the girls.  Today I am sharing a Photo Frame with photos of my nieces and nephew from a photo shoot they had taken a few years ago now.  This is a present for my sister for her birthday.  Because she has three children these photos were a perfect fit for the Three Panel Frame.


I started with a Beyond The Page 3 Piece Panel Frame by Kaisercraft and the beautiful Indigo Skies Collection.

I filmed a Process Video of how I made this frame.

I used one of Kaisercraft's new 6x6 Templates - Abstract Triangles to add some texture to the frame.



I also added some background stamping with my all time favourite stamp CS257 Background Script.



You can see in the video how I just ink up little bits of this stamp for the effect of a few words stamped here and there on the frame.

I tied the frame together with some Kaisercraft blue Organza Ribbon.

I fussy-cut some of the beautiful butterflies to decorate the frame.  I love butterflies as an embellishment.  I popped a little Kaisercraft Decorative Die vine (DD516) underneath the butterflies to fill in the gaps.

I added a little bit of navy sewing thread and a couple Kaisercraft white Mini Paper Blooms.

Kaisercraft Indigo Skies - "Life Advice" Layout

Kaisercraft Indigo Skies Layout by Alicia McNamara

The task over at the Kaisercraft Blog was to make a Masculine Layout using the new Indigo Skies Collection.  I picked a photo of my two boys to scrap.  I don't know why I don't scrap these two cuties more often.  Blue is my favourite colour and I adore butterflies, so the Indigo Skies Collection is another collection I have added to my favourite list of collections from Kaisercraft.
