Australiana Dies

Love the look of dies but not sure of what to do with them? Kaisercraft has released a range of Australiana floral dies that not only compliment paper collections but can be used on their own.

Kaisercraft Products: CD511 Card Pack C6 White | Decorative Dies: DD812 Sketched Rectangle Frame | DD3351 Protea | IP743 Spearmint Ink Pad | CS916 Occassions Mini Clear Stamps | CD301 Snow Cardstock | CD302 Coal Cardstock

Other: Copic Markers | Versamark Ink | Clear Embossing Powder | Silver Embossing Powder | White Embossing Powder | Stick It Adhesive | 100 pound Cardstock

I was inspired by the protea die. After having a look at images online to see what colours to use, I explored a stained glass technique and decided that I would use this to showcase the die. I used my copic markers to colour the indentation of the die onto cardstock then heat embossed it with clear embossing ink to create the stained glass look. This technique could be used to create home decor items.

To view this collection of dies, stop by your local stockist or visit the online store.

Techique Tuesday – Die Cut Inlay

Hello and welcome to another Technique Tuesday.

I thought I would share with you a little technique that I love to do – die cut inlay.

Kaisercraft products: PP1083 paper pad | DD3329 Lily decorative die

It is such an easy technique and a pair of tweezers will make the job a little easier!

To start I die cut out using white cardstock and discard all the little pieces.

I then die cut it again 2 times, one using some green paper and then again using some of the pink. Save all these little pieces. I pop them in a dish so they don’t get lost.

Adhere your white die cut outline to your paper. Then add just a small amount of glue to each section and with tweezers add each piece. Some dies are intricate so you may need a little patience!

Here is an example of some I did with last months Grand Bazaar collection.

Kaisercraft products: PP1081 Paper pad | DD628 Star Mandala

I hope I have inspired you a little today to give this technique a try. Don’t forget to share on your creations on our Kaisercraft Corner page on Facebook. We love to see your work!

Until next time

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.

For your chance to win upload a photo of your project to the KAISERCRAFT CORNER Facebook group with the hashtag #KCCHALLENGE15SCRAPLIFT and add the photo to the CHALLENGE #15 Photo Album (this needs to be done for your entry to count).

Good luck everyone and I look forward to seeing all your projects.

Challenge #14 Winners In no particular order are:

Kylie Coleman

I love all stitched hearts and the patterns peeking under them. Great choice of patterns and the paper strips and flowers on the bottom of the photo balanced everything prettily.

Helen Barker

What I love about this layout are the choice of bold color background, the blocks of squares and the well-balanced placement of all the elements.

Congratulations, ladies!
Please contact Danka via email at – danka.e@kaisercraft.com.au – with your address and what number challenge winners you are… thank you!
You can see other entries in this challenge over on the Kaisercraft Corner Facebook page in the album section of the group.

Challenge #14 – Stitching

Hi Everyone, welcome to Challenge Corner No: #14 – Stitching!!! I don’t know if you have noticed but I love stitching on my projects, especially my layouts, you can colour match the threads to your beautiful papers and I also find it very relaxing. The “Oh Happy Day’ is a fabulous collection for adding stitching with all those pretty bright coloured papers, so I used some bright red thread which stands out on the beautiful blue paper. So come on, show me your projects with some added stitching, it can be hand stitching or machine. I am so looking forward to seeing your lovely stitched creations.

Kaisercraft Products Used: Oh Happy Day Collection: P2892 Time to Party|P2893 Fire Crackers|P2899 100’s & 1000’s|P2898 Party Popper|CS376 Clear Stamp Set

Other Products: CD330 Bloom Kaisercard|CD302 Coal Kaisercard|CD323 Coral Kaisercard|DD650 Fancy Doily Die|EF253 Streamers Embossing Folder|CS372 Paint Splatter Texture Stamp|SB793 Black Pearls

As this collection is about celebration and parties I wanted to create a fun, bright explosion of colour on my layout, my photo was taken at my daughters Birthday party, she was having so much fun, she didn’t see us snapping away, I love her expression!!!!

The coordinating stamp set is just so much fun, I’m not sure what you call them, but stamped and fussy cut the little flower type stamp on some of the Kaiser card, they made great centres to the Doily Die cut outs and I also added some around my layout to give little pops/explosions of colour.

You can download the instructions for my layout here

So this Challenge is all about Stitching –

A Design Team member will choose two submissions just before the next challenge starts which will be on the 4th January 2020 – so you could be in with a chance to win a collection pack.

For your chance to win upload a photo of your project to the KAISERCRAFT CORNER facebook group with the hashtag #KCCHALLENGE14STITCHING and add the photo to the CHALLENGE #14 Photo Album (this needs to be done for your entry to count) Good luck everyone and I look forward to seeing all your stitched projects.

Good morning how are you? What do you think of this months collections? They are very inspiring and today I am here to share with you a fairly quick and easy layout especially when we are getting to the crazy part of the year where we want to scrap but we are finding it increasingly harder with time, family and all that that goes with the festive season.

So you can follow along with the PROCESS VIDEO HERE and also a downloadable PDF HERE.


PRODUCTS USED:  
PAPERS: LADY LIKE Collection: P2874 Rose, P2878 Delores, P2881 Pasty, P2882 Evelyn, SK820 Sticker Book, CR220 Curios, CT974 Collectables

Deconstruct the wood panels and then use a distress tool on the edges. To make more of an impact once stuck down go and tear the gaps open some more, to give it a bolder look.

Sometimes less is more and this also applies to your embellishment clusters …. you dont need a lot and the key is to keep them compact.

To create negative space us a smaller photo and by placing your title to the bottom and away from the top it will help get a bigger impact with this technique.

Till next time have a creative day.

Technique Tuesday – Fussy Cutting

Hi Everyone, Chrissy here with another Technique Tuesday. Today I will be sharing with you the art of “Fussy Cutting” – also what fussy cutting means, what you can fussy cut and my preferred tools to use to fussy cut with.

Kaisercraft products used: Uncharted Waters Collection P2849 Hook x 2|P2850 Streak|P2851 Tide Pool|P2853 Sea Shore x 2|P2854 Pelagic|CT973 Collectables|CD313 Caramel Kaisercard|

When I first started Scrapbooking I hadn’t even heard of the term “fussy cutting” however I soon discovered I loved the idea of cutting out beautiful flowers and images from the gorgeous papers and it was a friend who then said to me – “you love your fussy cutting don’t you” and that is how I found out what it meant and my projects over the years have featured more & more fussy cutting. So Fussy Cutting is: Cutting out specific images from your paper. 

Here are a few images cut from the gorgeous Uncharted Waters papers.

I think the term “Fussy Cutting” originated from cutting material, this is what I found on Google:
“A fussy cut is a piece of fabric that’s been cut to target a specific area of a print, rather than cutting the yardage into random pieces”.

I am really drawn to beautiful floral papers, I love fussy cutting all the flowers then arranging them into clusters on my layouts – however, you don’t need pretty floral papers to be able to fussy cut, even with this beautiful “Uncharted Waters” collection there are many, many things to fussy cut. The shells and other sea themed images.

………even the ropes, (which then look 3D) anchors and shells from the “Sea Shore” paper. The corner netting image from the Hook paper which I have cut out twice, the second one slightly smaller and then layered it up on top of the first one to give some height and dimension (see image below)

….and for some extreme fussy cutting, how about this netting (below) from the “Streak” paper which I have then added to the bottom of my layout.

so yes, you can fussy cut anything!!! why not give it a go!!

There is not a set tool or scissors that you Should use to fussy cut, you can use what ever you feel comfortable using, I found very early on into my fussy cutting that I loved using one specific pair of small curved nail scissors which I still use today. (the ones on the right in below image) I do have about three other slightly different pairs of small scissors but these are just in case I loose my favourite pair as they have now been discontinued

Once all the fussy cutting has been done you can put your layout together. Another reason I love fussy cutting is that I find it very relaxing – and gives your projects that little extra lovely touch.

……..and you can use foam pads to give some height and dimension to your fussy cut elements

Thank you for popping by, I hope I have inspired you to do some fussy cutting on your projects, I look forward to seeing them in Kaiser Corner. https://www.facebook.com/groups/kaisercraftcorner/

You can find all these beautiful Uncharted Waters products over on the Kaisercraft website https://www.kaisercraft.com.au/

You can find the instructions for my layout here

Happy crafting & fussy cutting!!!
