Telegraph Road - Pocket Scrapbooking Layout

Happy Friday everyone!

This week I have another Pocket scrapbooking layout for you using the Kaisercraft Telegraph road papers.

The tittle below was cut from chipboard using the Tim Holtz vintage market die (the smaller one) And my little girl (with daddy's supervision) helped cover them in glue and sand which we collected on the day and brought home in a jar!
Then once all was dry I went around the edges with Distress Ink to make them pop a little more


Here you can see a few of the collectables from the collection, I like to keep my layouts really simple so when I add my journaling it doesn't get lost under too many embellishments and I find the collectables allow me to add a bit of interest without spending too much time or loosing focus of what this project is really about,Story telling and memory keeping!


The Seahorse is a stencil that I had in my stash, and I just added some perfect pearl powder to my modeling paste to get a blue tint, and I did the same with the shell on the opposite side

And a closer look at the Kaisercraft wooden flourishes that match the paper line really well, All I have done to this one is ink the edges with Distress ink and stamped and embossed some "postcard" wording for added interest.

The last thing I did to this layout was ink all of the edges with Gathered Twigs distress ink, this gave a really soft and vintage feel to the layout and helped the journaling cards and photos blend together better.

And that's me for another week, I hope you all have a fabulous crafty weekend

  1. Beatiful douple page! Thanks for visiting my blog. :)

  2. Lovely pages! Did you colour the edge of the photos after printing or did you have them printed with a tint?

  3. Hi Manda, this is just good old distress ink! I use this stuff on every prioject and almost any surface (including my photos) I love how it gives it a softer feel and makes everything blend together nicely!
