Lilac Mist 10 minute cards

Hi everyone, welcome to today’s blog post where I am sharing 2 quick cards. For me card making has to be quick. And although I appreciate those gorgeous fancy cards I ice when I think they will just be trashed one day – so for me personally quick and easy does the trick.

Kaisercraft: Lilac Mist Collection : PP1093 Paper Pad | CT994 Collectables
Other: Ink | Pearls- Snow | Card Pack – White |
For my first card I used 3 patterned papers from my 6×6 paper pad. I always like cutting these smaller papers to make multiple cards – it works so well.
Then added some die-cut elements from my Collectibles packet. I used the thin foam tape to raise some of the elements tucking things underneath the large square element. By simply adding foam tape to the center of the element I can easily tuck things under it.
My second card uses the remainder of the patterned paper pieces that I cut. It is really easy creating colour blocked cards using limited supplies – so there is really never an excuse for not being able to be creative.
Here I grouped my die-cut elements towards the bottom of the card where the larger pieces of patterned papers are split by the thin lilac strip. I finished off my cards using some pearls in various sizes and some ink splats.

Si in ten minutes or less I created these gorgeous cards using this amazing new range. And what better way to spoil someone with a handmade card, even if it may find its way to the landfill one day – for today it brings me joy creating a beautiful card and going through the creative process. Until next time – happy creating Jowilna xx

Explorer Travel single page

Welcome to the month of December! I can hardly believe how this year has flown by. But what I can believe is how hungry we all are for travel, for visiting new and exciting places, and for normal – whatever that may be. But one thing is for sure, this new collection is going to get us all excited for future travels and thankful for places we have been able to visit.

Kaisercraft Collection Explorer: CS384 Clear Stamps | CT984 Collectables | Collectables Sentiments | P2949 | Roam | P2951 Atlas |
I used the gorgeous map page to form a part of my background on this layout.
I added a die-cut word sentiment that I cut on my Cricut Maker next to the matted photo – the white of the sentiment forms a beautiful tone on tone effect but also makes for a nice backdrop for my collectible elements to sit on.
The raised elements using foam tape adds some nice dimension to this clustered group of elements. I repeated the white circles on top of the white sentiment – showing them off beautifully against the floral elements.
I used my stamp set to add some subtle stamping in the background. I used the stamp as is, not on an acrylic block and lightly tapped it onto a brown ink, before lightly touching it to my background. I love how the subtle effect adds to the distressed paper in the background.
Collectibles layered on top of fussy cut flowers.
Below the patterned paper strip I added some m ore stamping using the arrow from my stamp set. The arrow shows movement and also repeats the black in my collectible element and my photo.
Thanks for stopping by, until next time – keep on dreaming and traveling through your memories with this gorgeous collection!

Home sweet Home Flower shoppe layout

Today on the blog I am sharing this single page created using the gorgeous Flower Shoppe range. I used a cut file, cut with my Cricut Maker and filled in with the patterned paper, creating a gorgeous backdrop for my photo.

Flower Shoppe Collection: P2943 | Full Bloom; P2942 | Glass House; P2937 | Weather Board; P2938 | Afternoon; P2939 | Sunroom; P2940 | Conservatory; P2941 | Garden Path; Collectables
Sentiments; CT983 | Collectables;
Cut out flowers and embellishments create some beautiful and soft details on top of the background.
I added some hand sewing on top of the white border, after backing the inside with my patterned paper sheets.
Using some sentiment strips from the Collectibles packet to add my words.
I love the simplicity of this layout and how it came together with the little details. Sometimes its the little things that make a big impact, and in this case my cut file is the perfct supporting element to this gorgeous paper – plus I get to use as much of the patterns by using them in smaller pieces.
I hope you are inspired to try something new using this amazing range. Until next time, stay safe Jowilna

Native Noel Card Set

Kaisercraft Collection: Native Noel | Natives | Green Polka | Gingham | Sticker Sheet | Collectables | Kaiser Mist Gold | Foam Tape | Rhinestones
Other: Sewing machine | ribbon
Welcome to today’s blo0g post using another fabulous Christmas range. With its gorgeous shades of reds and greens and a hint of kraft this range is going to be a firm favorite for me. I made 3 cards using my patterned papers as the background trimmed to fit onto my card base.
On top of the patterned paper I added either a tag or a cut out card from the Green Polka sheet {reverse}. Some machine sewing details around the edges gives a nice contrast and texture.
From my collectibles packet I added a circle element and finished it off with some Gold Kaiser Mist splats and rhinestones.
This must be one of my favorite cards – simply because it has this gorgeous Protea on it. I added some cut out leaves and the cut out Protea from the Natives patterned paper.
For my third card I used another cut out panel and added a circle from the sticker sheet and some cut out leaves and berries as a finishing touch.
Notice how the gold Kaiser Mist splats just pull everything together and adds some shimmer without being overwhleming.
And don’t forgot those little details in the form of rhinestones or other embellishments. I hope you are inspired by these card to start making your Festive Season cards for this year. I can’t wait to make some more cards using the other amazing elements in this kit – be sure to check out yours from your local store and get it in time for some Christmas Crafting. Until next time Jowilna xxx

Merry & Bright Emerald Eve Layout

Kaisercraft Collection: Emerald Eve P2965 Fir Tree | P2970 Emerald Leaves | P2969 Star Bright | CT990 Collectables | CT991 Collectables Sentiments | KM121 White Kaiser Mist | Kaiser Mist Gold
Hi everyone, welcome to September – hope you are all well. With some normalcy returning to the world it is time for some much needed positive vibes and the start of some awesome Christmas releases coming your way.
The new Emerald Eve is simply gorgeous with its amazing rich greens and gold foiled elements.
I created a fun pocket / flag element on the background and then dressed it up with some gorgeous fussy cut elements and die-cut elements from my collectibles packets.
Layered on top of the pocket the elements create different layers and creates a nice dimensional effect.
Stitched details on the pocket adds a nice contrast and effect with all the gold tones. I had so much fun creating this layout using this stunning range. I hope you feel inspired and we can’t wait to see what you will create with it. Until next time Jowilna x

Fallen leaves Embossed details

Fallen Leaves Collection: P2919 Crunchy Leaves | P2920 Crisp Air | PP1087 Paper Pad | CT981 Collectables | CS381 Clear Stamps | KM130 Brown Kaiser Mist | CD301 Snow Card stock | Foamtape
Other: Buttons | Gold embossing Powder | Versamark ink pad | Diamante

Today on the blog I am sharing a single page using the gorgeous new Fallen Leaves Collection. The moment I saw those big leaves and the stamp set I knew what I wanted to do – those winter leaves were begging for some texture, so come along and see how I created them.

I Used my stamp set and repeatedly stamped over my cut out leaves using Versamark ink pad, then sprinkled with gold embossing powder and heat set the powder until fully melted. The gold embossing gives the plain leaves some beautiful interest.
Using different stamps with the same embossing gives the leaves some different texture and looks amazing next to the mustard yellow shades.
A mixture of collectibles and cut out elements from the paper pad makes for an interesting assortment of clustered details.
More stamping, ink splats and some stenciled details add interest to the background.
I finished off my layout by adding some buttons and diamante. I hope you enjoyed this journey and how easy it is to transform your patterned paper and give loads of interest to elements using stamps and embossing. Until next time – have fun with this amazing collection Jowilna x

Heaven Sent single page layout

Welcome to another inspiration blog post using the gorgeous new collection. Have you been busy creating up a storm while being at home? I sure have and really loved working with this range. Its stunning and not just for babies if that is what you are thinking. Although I was inspired to do a baby layout which is not like me at all.

Little Treasures Co9llection: P2932 Cuddles | PP1088 Paper Pad | CT982 | Collectables | Collectables Sentiments | CS382 Clear Stamp | SB718 Bliss Pearls | SB786 | Rose Pearl | IP736 Blush Ink Pad – Water Based |

I Created my background by using my Blush ink pad and adding some colour to white cardstock using the direct to paper technique. I did make sure that I had colour peeking out behind my photo by checking the positioning every now and again.
Matted my photo onto some of the blue paper from the Paper Pad and then started cutting some elements.
I think my favorite part of this range must the flowers – I love all the other elements too but those flowers are simply stunning. I created base layers with the flowers and then used foam tape to raise the elements on top for dimension.
My large balloon is dressed up using a banner from the Collectables packet, a cut out star and then some matching pearls.
Lastly I used some grey ink and stamp the sentiment from the clear stamp set repeatedly overlapping each other.
I finished off my page with some gold and brown ink splatters and diamante. I hope you are inspired to use this range not only for babies but for so many other things too. Watch this space to see what the design team comes up with using this stunning collection. Until next time happy creating Jowilna.

Amethyst at an angle single page

Kaisercraft Products: AMETHYST Collection – P2916 Crystal | P2917 Full Moon | CD301 Snow Cardstock | CT980 Amethyst Collectables | CT986 | Collectables Sentiments
Today on the blog I am sharing single page layout with an angle. I love using my white cardstock backgrounds, but with this range and its many beautiful page designs I just couldn’t help myself but wanting to use a little bit more paper. So I cut the beautiful Crystal page in half diagonally and used it as part of my layout.
A combination of cut out leaves from the Full Moon sheet and my Collectibles make up the bulk of my clusters.
Have you seen the new Sentiments Collectibles – what an amazing and wonderful addition to the family – filled to the brim with sentiments and words, you can now enjoy double the fun of these. So useful and perfect for cards and on any of your projects.
Layer elements using foam tape so that they can peek over your photo and finish them off with some rhinestones in the same shades as found in your paper. It really is in the details.
More little Collectible treasures found in the packet include this gorgeous heart and little leaf – perfect for those layers and clusters.

And can I just say that I am not a purple lover – but this range is more navy than purple and with its amazing designs this range totally stole my heart! Perfect and gorgeous in every way. You are sure to fall in love with it too. Until next time – we hope you love it as much as we do – happy crafting!
