Happy Family Moments with KaiserCraft Pen & Ink Bundle ~ FotoBella DT

     Hello! I'm back with another vintage layout featuring the gorgeous KaiserCraft Pen & Ink Bundle from

     I really love how the Kaisermist Iridescent Spray (Coffee) brings out the warmer tones in the photo, used on the butterflies and background, after applying Prima Marketing White Gesso to the Tim Holtz Gothic Stencil! Once it all dried, I used my fingers to apply Prima Marketing Metallique Waxes  (Old Silver and Brushed Iron).

     Then I tore and curled some of the paper, to reveal the bottom page, where I added a border sticker to the top. The chandelier and butterflies were fussy-cut from the black foil specialty sheet, which also includes images of flowers, leaves, old phones, and typewriters.

     I created the title from Bingo cards cut from one of the papers in the bundle, which has other words and combinations to choose from, and inked the edges with the KaiserCraft Mini Ink Pad (Black).

     I also used the KaiserCraft Mini Ink Pad (Black) on most of the other paper and die cut edges, before machine-stitching the sides.

     The wooden hinge and keyhole embellishments were given a coat of white gesso, a spritz of Kaisermist Spray (Coffee), a rub of Metallique Waxes (Old Silver and Brushed Iron), and finished around the edges, again, using the KaiserCraft Mini Ink Pad (Black).

     I also used the KaiserCraft Mini Ink Pad (Black) to stamp the roses with the stamp included in the bundle.

     Taking inspiration from the Pepsi can in the photo, I dipped and stamped a couple of circles with a Coke can using the Kaisermist Spray (Coffee). Then I finished it up with some of the KaiserCraft Pearls (Pearl), scattered among some buttons inherited from my grandma (the fourth one in the photo with her sisters).

     Thanks for looking, and get the KaiserCraft Pen & Ink Scrapbooking Bundle at!
