Mini layouts with Kaisercraft Curiosity by Beverley

Hi Everyone - last week I showed you a cover for an eight by eight album using the Curiosity collection from Kaisercraft with a bit of Prima thrown in. This week I have a few mini layouts to share.  These layouts are 8 x 8 inch layouts perfect for the Zutter 8 x 8 protective pockets that are pre-punched. I find that a great starting point for doing layouts is finding sketch sites - Creative Scrappers is one of my favourites. There are heaps of sketches on their site.

When I first received my kit and this collection I thought cool I would do lots of embellishing with it but once I worked with it I decided it needed a less is more approach because of the big prints and bold colours. My layouts do not have any photos on at this stage as I have not decided what photos to use yet.  When doing a mini album without photos just attach all embellishments and paper in such a way that they can be added later.
Each mini layout has been sprayed with Dylusions White Linen and the edges inked with white ink.

I have created four layouts so far with the Curiosity collection mainly using the 6 x 6 pad , a few of the collectables and some stickers. On some of the images I have added glossy accents  to give more dimension or added foam squares. I have used cardstock for the base and photo mats.

With my first mini layout I added a bit of jute string for interest and extra dimension.

My second mini layout has space for a bigger photo and I have clustered the strawberry collectables down the side of the layout.

The third mini layout has fussy cutting, a bit of paper tearing and a mini banner to balance it out.

The fourth mini layout incorporates the popular banner trend that has occurred in the scrapping world in the last couple of years and looks like it is here to stay for a few more!
