When I have a party, I looooove to have party guests! And today, we have a very lovely one here at KBS!
Everyone….welcome Lindsay Bateman!
This is Lindsay’s first time in the KBS neck of the woods, but not her first time using KBS goodies! I have long admired Lindsay’s sense of design, especially when it comes to using the Travelers Templates. She makes it all look so fun! And today’s spread is no exception…looooove how she combined it with KBS stamps!
Take a look….
Okay, that big chunky shiny pretty FRI??? Hello? Man, she’s speakin’ my language there! And I simply adore all the little stamp touches within the template structure.
Let’s here what Lindsay has to say about it.
It’s Lindsay Bateman here and I am SO excited to be sharing a little piece of my heart and passion with you all in celebration of Kerri Bradford Studio’s birthday! SO fun!
Because birthday celebrations just make me happy, I was inspired to create a super fun and colourful layout in my Traveler’s Notebook using some of my KBS favourites. I love how versatile the products that I chose are, and how incredible they worked together to create exactly what I had envisioned for my notebook.
To begin, I used one of the photo templates from the Traveler’s Templates collection to create my hybrid grid layout. I first used the template in photoshop where I added my photos in. However, I did not add photos in all the spaces. You will note the blank grid “white space”. I chose to do this on purpose so that I could go in and add in some of my favourite KBS stamps manually. To create these white spaces, all I simply did was delete the layer in photoshop. Once they were deleted, I printed out my layout and then went in and added the stamping, pattern paper and additional embellishments.
I used the following KBS stamp sets, “Oh Yeah” and “One Fine Day” to pull my spread together. I am in love with these stamp sets SO much! I find they are perfect for traveller’s notebooks. I love the sentiments and variety of fonts. The size of the stamps are perfect too. They worked perfectly to help me create my pages.
On the right hand side of my layout I had fun using the digital stamp set, “A Big Day”. Again, what I did was in photoshop I added in the digital brush “FRI” and then adjusted it to the size I was wanting. I then printed it out on my laser printer (and once printed) ran it through my MINC machine with the Rose Gold Ombre Foil. I adhered the page into my traveler’s notebook and finished off with some washi tape, stamping and a sticker. I LOVE the bold font and how I was able to customize it further with my MINC. So much fun to play.
Happiest Birthday to Kerri Bradford Studios!
Wow Lindsay! You pack a punch in such a small space. And you do it with ease. I love it! Thanks so much for coming to the party. You come back soon now, ya here? :)
p.s. I will neither confirm nor deny (nor throw Lindsay under the bus) that she made me get my mint Webster’s Pages Travelers Journal….which I looooove.
