‘Tis The Season – Emerald Avenue Card

Hello, Kaisercraft friends. I hope you’re all keeping safe. It’s Donna here with my take on the latest Kaisercraft collection, Emerald Avenue.

I opted to concentrate on the subdued colors in the collection for my card project and I really love how it turned out. It’s a classic combination of nude/beige, gold and kraft.

Kaisercraft Collection: Emerald Eve PP1091 | CT990 Collectables | CT991 Collectables Sentiments | F628 | CD512 C6 Kraft Card Pack | LDB1056 Foam Tape
Other: White Doily, Twine

I layered a couple of papers from the 6.5 paper pad and adhered to the Kraft card base with some foam tape for a bit of dimension. I used foam tape for everything to give depth because of the monochromatic palette.

I used some Paper Blooms in Honey, twine and a white doily for more texture. This is quite a simple card and very easy to recreate.

Fallen Leaves | Blessed Scrapbook Layout

Hello, Kaisercraft friends! It’s Donna here with you today sharing my take on the newest Kaisercraft collection, Fallen Leaves.

I made a simple layout with a bit of mixed media background using some watercolor splashes. I chose colors that coordinate with the Fallen Leaves color palette. Then I also splattered some gold mist and let it dry on its own so it won’t lose it’s natural sheen/sparkle.

Kaisercraft Products: FALLEN LEAVES Collection: CT981 Collectables | PP1087 Paper Pad | FL668 Flourishes | CD301 White Cardstock | CS381 Clear Stamp | F628 Honey | KM132 Gold Mist | IP750 Chestnut | IP751 Chocolate

Other: Watercolors | Thread

I used several papers from the 6.5 paper pad to add some layers as well as the shaped borders that you can also find in the same paper pad.

I adhered the photo on top of the layered papers and I used some foam tape to mount it for added dimension.

I further embellished with flowers, wood flourishes and collectables.

I love that it is simple yet with texture and dimension because of the watercolor splashes and the layers of papers and clusters of embellishments, respectively.

Sweet Baby Girl Scrapbook Layout

Hello, Kaisercraft friends! It’s Donna here on the blog today with a brand new scrapbook layout using the Little Treasures collection.

Kaisercraft Products: LITTLE TREASURES Collection: P2929 Sweetheart | P2931 Tiny Miracle | P2931 Cuddles | CT928 Collectables | CD601 White Cardstock | RS403 Antique Rose |

Other:  Watercolors | White Doily

I started by trimming a 12″ x 12″ white cardstock into about 10″ x 10″ and a patterned paper into 11″ x 11″ then distressed the edges. I adhered both to another patterned paper using foam tape for a bit of height.

I added splatters of watercolors on the white cardstock and when it has dried I arranged lots of fussy cut and die cuts in a circle to create a wreath.

I used a mixture of different thickness of foam tape to adhere them for different depth. Then I placed my photos over a white doily. I scattered rhinestones to complete the layout.

Thank you for dropping by and I hope you liked my layout!

Beautiful Smile Scrapbook Layout

Hello, Kaisercraft friends! It’s Donna here with a project using the Amethyst collection. I made a scrapbook layout with lots of fussy cutting and layerings!

Kaisercraft Products: AMYTHEST Collection: P2911 Quartz | P2912 Opal | P2917 Full Moon | CT980 Collectables | CT986 Sentiment | CD601 White | RS456 Lilac | EM405 Paper Doilies | T302 Foam Dots | LDB1056 Foam Tape | T321 Acid-free craft glue
Other: white embroidery thread, black felt tip pen

The Amethyst patterned papers are so beautiful and I wanted showcase some of them all at once. So what I did was create a layer of papers with torn/distressed edges.

I like to curl the edges as well to create texture and depth. To make the edges curl easier, I create a line where I wanted to tear off the paper with brush and a bit of water. I can carefully tear the paper this way and it makes curling the edges so beautifully.

I also create the messy pattern of purple, blue and white watercolors on the white cardstock background.

Lots of fussy cutting done for this layout and mostly came from the Full Moon paper alone. It is one of those papers from a Kaisercraft collection that you would surely want to stock up if you are a fussy-cutting lover like me.

I hope you liked my layout and I hope this sparked your creativity today.

Life Is Better When You’re Laughing Scrapbook Layout

Hello, Kaisercraft friends. Donna here sharing a scrapbook layout using the collection, Native Breeze.

I love how colorful this beautiful collection is. I especially love the color palette which is bright and vibrant as well as the flowers and cute wildlife animals.

PRODUCTS USED: NATIVE BREEZE – P2859 Wattle Flower, P2863 Flowering, P2864 Southern Sky

KC PRODUCTS: SK824 Sticker Book, CR224 Curios, CT978 Collectables, CD601 White Cardstock, KM125 Candy, KM122 Yellow, EM405 Doily, T315 Double-Sided Tape, T303 Foam Tape, T321 Acid-Free Craft Glue

I started with white cardstock as the background for this layout. I ripped the edges of Wattle Flower and Flowering papers then placed them to the top left corner and bottom right corner creating a diagonal white space in the middle.

I used a couple of white doilies to mat the photos which I converted to black and white to make it stand out over the colorful elements in the layout.

I fussy cut quite a few flowers and leaves and used lots of stickers from the Sticker book as well. I tucked some of the flowers from the Collectables pack under the layered papers.

To finish off, I splattered watered-down Candy and Yellow Kaisermists. Make sure your photos are covered before doing this step though.

I hope this project inspired you to create using the Native Breeze collection. Although it is Australian-themed, I was still able to use it with a generic, everyday moment photo.

I look forward to seeing your creations over on Kaiser Corner.

Challenge # 15 Scraplift

Hello everyone. Welcome to Challenge # 15! I made a list of challenge ideas with the whole team and one of the ideas is a Scraplift challenge. We all agreed this is gonna be fun and interesting! Now, for the challenge, all you have to do is scraplift a Kaisercraft DT members’ layout or card!

Post your layout or card along with the photo/image of the project you scraplifted and the DT member’s name as well, of course.

I chose this layout by Hetty Hall.

And here is my take on her layout

Kaisercraft Products Used: Lily & Moss Collection: P2885 Ombre, P2889 Chalky, P2888 Whirl, SK823 Sticker Book, CR223 Curios, CT977 Collectables
SB786 Rose pearls, IP724 Bark inkpad, EM405 Doily, T315 Double-Sided Tape, T303 Foam Tape, T321 Acid-Free Craft Glue

I just love all the flowers and the layers of papers under the photo.
I inked the edges of the papers and lifted them a bit for texture. I also used foam tape to give the papers and flowers dimension.
I scattered tons of pink pearls to mimic the scattering of flowers.

Interpretation is all up to you but we would love to see the resemblance at least from the original. Like on my layout, instead of scattering flowers, I scattered pearls instead. I also added some stickers and doily.

A Design Team member will choose two submissions just before the next challenge starts which will be on February 8th, 2020 – so you could be in with a chance to win a collection pack.

“Blessed” Lily & Moss Scrapbook Layout

Hello, everyone. It’s Donna here with my layout using the Lily & Moss collection.

Download the PDF instruction HERE or click the main image above.

PRODUCTS USED: PAPERS: LILY AND MOSS Collection: P2883 Pink Plaster, P2886 Flicker
KAISERCRAFT PRODUCTS:
PP1083 Paper Pad, SK823 Sticker Book, FL664 Flourish Pack, CT977 Collectables, IP724 Bark, EM405 Doily, T315 Double-Sided Tape, T303 Foam Tape, T321 Acid-Free Craft Glue
Other: White embroidery thread

I was inspired by this paper, Pink Plaster, in the collection and I knew I wanted to use it in my project. To highlight the tile patterns a bit more, I got the smaller patterns from the 6.5 paper pad and I fussy cut them one by one then adhered/placed them in an overlapping way.

I used tons of the flowers in the Collectables pack as well as some pieces from the 6.5 paper pad and Sticker book. Foam tape can add height to some of the flat embellishments creating depth or dimension.

I hope you liked my layout today. Thank you for dropping by and see you all in my next post!

Blessed | Grand Bazaar Scrapbook Layout

Hello! It’s Donna here again with my take on the Grand Bazaar collection.

I made a scrapbook layout with white cardstock as a background to showcase the beautiful color palette of this collection.

Download the PDF instruction HERE or click the main image above.

PRODUCTS USED: PAPERS: GRAND BAZAAR Collection: P2871 Persian Rug
KAISERCRAFT PRODUCTS: PP1081 Paper pad, SK821 Sticker book, CR221 Curios, CT975 Collectables, FL662 Flourish Pack, KM132 Kaiser Mist Gold, CD601 White, EM405 Doily, T315 Double-Sided Tape, T303 Foam Tape, T321 Acid-Free Craft Glue,
Other: White embroidery thread, sequins

I love this particular paper in the collection, PERSIAN RUG. I fussy cut just the center and cut it in half and adhered to the right and left side of the layout. This will be the starting point of the diagonal design of the layout.

I placed the feathers from the Collectables pack going down diagonally towards the lower left side of the layout to create movement.

I used thin foam tape to create a subtle dimension to some of the embellishments especially the stickers and Collectables. The gold Kaiser mist and as well as the scatters of sequins all over the layout added a bit of texture. Then I just simply added a few lines of journaling to complete the layout.

That’s all from me today and I hope you liked my layout using the Grand Bazaar collection. Do leave your comments or questions, I love reading your comments.

Oh Happy Day Birthday Cards

Hello, Kaisercraft friends. It’s Donna here with a couple of cards using the Oh Happy day collection.

Download the PDF instruction HERE or click the main image above.

PRODUCTS USED: PAPERS: OH HAPPY DAY Collection: PP1082 Paper Pad
KAISERCRAFT PRODUCTS: SK822 Sticker book, CT976 Collectables, T303 Foam Tape, T321 Acid-Free Craft Glue, CD501 Card Pack Square White
Other: Black and white paper twine

I created something really simple using the paper pad and sticker book only. This colorful and playful collection is perfect not just for birthdays but for any other occasion like graduation or promotion etc.

Believe it or not, I only used the 6″ x 6.5″ paper pad and sticker book in creating these cards. What I love about the paper pads and sticker books is the variety of word arts you can use for birthdays or other greetings for any occasion.

I uploaded a PDF instruction you can download and it’s pretty simple you can do it yourself using the same collection or any of your choice. I made a second card using the same design principle but using different papers and embellishments/elements.

I hope these cards inspired you to create something today! Thanks for dropping by and have a crafty day!
