Cherished Memories | Scrapbook Layout

Hello, Kaisercraft friends. Donna here to share with you my scrapbook layout using the Le Belle collection.

Kaisercraft Products: Le Belle Collection: P2973 Paris Posy | PP1096 Paper Pad | CT 994 Le Belle Collectables | CD301 Snow Kaisercard | F649 Paper Blooms | KM132 Gold Kaiser Mist

Other: Small white doily

I used white cardstock for the background and then cut one of the papers from the paper pad into half and adhered to the base cardstock. I also splattered some gold shimmer spray Kaiser Mist.

I like to curl the edges of some of the ephemera for added depth and texture, so it doesn’t just lay flat. 

I fussy cut tons of floral patterns from PARIS POSY. I placed these fussy cut florals diagonally for added interest of element placement.

Le Belle Single Page Layout

This gorgeous range from Kaisercraft has everything and so much more for all your memory keeping themes. From babies to wedding, family and friends this range is perfect for it all. I had this gorgeous photo of my friends’ baby and it was begging to be used on this layout.

Le Belle Collection: PK627 Le Belle Paper Pack | Paris Posy | Birdcage | CT997 | Collectables | PP1096 | Paper Pad
Other: sewing thread, walnut ink, foam tape, diamante, pearls

I used one of the barcode strips and adhered it about one third from the bottom of the “Birdcage” patterned paper, that I used as my background. I added flowers under it as well as flowers layered over the top using foam tape for a fun effect.

A few sewn stitches and some pearls add a nice finishing touch to an otherwise plain barcode strip. I combined die-cut collectibles with my cut out flowers scattered across the layout.

On the side of my photo I combined some collectibles and embellishments. A small stitch adds a nice detail holding the elements together.

Dimension and layers are key for this fun scattered floral design. I love how these flowers fussy cut from the patterned paper look together. The colours are soft and delicate without disappearing – a perfect combination of classy, elegant and feminine. I can see myself doing so much more with this wonderful range of papers.

We hope you are inspired by this amazing range and can’t wait to see so many wonderful creations by all of you. Thanks for stopping by until next time – keep on creating! Jowilna xxx

Slimline Card

Hello everyone. I hope that you are keeping safe and well. It has been a little while since I’ve shared a project with you, but I am glad to be able to share a slimline card with you, using the Le Belle Collection. Its vintage and gorgeous.

Other: Fishtail Flags Die| Hemp

I enjoy creating cards using slimline dimensions. I use 9″ x 4″ for my card base.

For the focal area of my card, I have used a birdcage and butterfly from the collectables. I fussy cut some flowers from Garden (reverse) to add to the base of the cage. I then altered some paper blooms to add dimension and also add a vintage feel to the card.

As I had chosen a slimline card as my card design, I could take advantage of the extra length of the card front. I used a variety of fishtails created from dies from my stash and adhered them using glue and foam tape to add dimension.

Blessed

Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. I am sharing a layout that I have created using the Flowering Natives Collection. It has many beautiful native florals in this collection. I decided to take it in a vintage direction with my layout.

Kaisercraft Products: Flowering Natives Collection: Wattle Flower (reverse) | Daisy | CT995 Collectables | IT468 6×6 Designer Template Grunge | CS752 Clear Stamp Script | Paper Blooms : F633 Olive and F639 Fuschia | IP757 Ink Pad Permanent Black

Other: Modelling Paste| Distress Ink Vintage Photo | Hemp

I distressed the edges of my papers and inked them with vintage photo distress ink. I also used stamping and stencils to add textures in my background. I applied some of the vintage photo distress ink to my paper to dull it. When I did this, it reminded me of faded wallpaper.

I cut up a sentiment from the base of a paper and inked the edges and used it on my layout. I felt it complimented the sentiment. To add more vintage feel to my layout, I added some ink splatters once complete.

Flowering natives Double page layout with a fun lettering trick

Hi everyone, welcome to another post on the blog today. I am using the gorgeous new release from this month “Flowering Natives” for a double page layout. I think it’s specially close to my heart because of the Proteas – one of my favourite flowers. And I simply adore this paper range with it on.

Kaisercraft Collection: Flowering Natives – PK625 | Flowering Natives Paper Pack | Sticker Sheet | PP1094 | Paper Pad | CT995 | Collectables
Other: White cardstock

I am also showing you this neat trick I have of working around a product that I love but don’;t like using – LETTERING STICKERS! I love them, I see the value of them I just don’t like using them. So instead of not using them, I use them in creative ways. And for this layout I simply cut the lettering portion and used it as a patterned paper piece.

I am not always fond of using lettering stickers – I love them – I just don’t love using them as individuals for creating titles and words on projects. I think I have issues when they are not perfectly straight – so I just avoid using them altogether.

If you think the letters may pop off after years of being in an album, them paint a thin layer of gel medium over the letters to seal them in permanently – it will dry clear and matt and seal them in – for those just in case moments.

I used the collectibles to add some dimension by layering the elements using foam tape.

Barcode strips, sticker strips with some sewing details layered on top of the alphabet sticker piece.

A fun way of using all those beautiful tags is grouping them for repetition on a project. I also use this trick when I only have a few elements left-over from my pack. Those little elements that seem to be forgotten – so I use them in numbers for effect. A few stitches and some diamante add more interest.

A great collection for all those fun traveling photos to see the Proteas, outdoor events like weddings and family gatherings or for those everyday special occasions – because at the end of the day its those little moments that make life big. Until next time – blessings Jowilna! x

Hello, Kaisercraft friends. It’s Donna here with my take on one of the newest collections from Kaisercraft.

I made a very simple scrapbook layout focusing on the photo of my friend’s baby announcement. The color palette and soft, delicate design of the collection perfectly suit my chosen photo.

Kaisercraft: Lilac Mist Collection: PK624 12×12 ePaper Pack | CT994 Collectables
Other: White doily

The first thing I did was chose the papers I wanted to use. I wanted to utilize most but these are what I ended up using.

I used a border punch to add some texture to the paper strips. Then I placed them horizontally to the left side.

I fussy cut several flowers from one of the papers in the pack and also used the ones on the sticker sheet. I used foam tapes for a bit of dimension.

I folded the upper right corner and adhered a piece of patterned paper at the bottom. I secured the folded part with a couple of staplers.

Die cuts and stickers completed the layout. I love how this turned out, really simple yet pretty! The photo really stood out against the textured paper strips and flowers.


That’s all from me today. I hope you liked my layout ! See you in my next post

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

Birthday Wishes

Hello everyone! It’s been a very long while but I am very happy to be able to share a birthday card with you today. It’s using paper from Kaisercraft’s new release Lilac Mist.

Kaisercraft Products: Lilac Mist Collection: PP1093 Paper Pad | Kaisercard : CD343 Blueberry, CD301 Snow, CD114 Forest | Decorative Dies: DD547 Circle Vines, DD3335 Birthday Wishes, DD815 Sketched Circles | DIY Flora Dies DD493 Flora Leaves, DD494 Flora Branches | F643 Amethyst Paper Blooms | F659 Misty Mini Paper Blooms

Other: Hemp | Cherry Blossoms

To create my card, I wanted to showcase lots of the papers as I had a difficult time deciding which ones I wanted to use as I liked them all. To help me in my design decision, I pulled out of the paper pad some papers that were my first choice – which were four! Next I went to Pinterest and had a look at the card sketches. I often do this to kick start my ideas and then I found a sketch that appealed to me. This sketch would enable me to showcase the papers I selected plus provide me with some options in my composition.

My take on the sketch………

To get the dimensions of the smaller squares, I just cut out scrap paper and played around with them until I was happy with everything.

Once my papers were positioned, I embellished with flowers and dies from previous releases.

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!

Adventure | Scrapbook Layout

Hello, Kaisercraft friends. Donna here with my latest layout using the Explorer collection. I don’t have that many travel photos so I opted to make use of the “adventure” and “dream more” themes in the collection. I chose my daughter’s photo where she’s in a swing and her facial expression’s just priceless. The feel of the wind in her face and the swinging really high was already an “adventure” for this innocent little girl. So that’s the theme I went with.

Kaisercraft Products: Explorer Collection: P2946 Landmarks |P2947 Flight | P2949 Rome | P2952 Gloetrotter | CT984 Explorer Collectables

Other: Doily | White Embroidery Thread

I cut two papers and distressed the edges then adhered them to the background patterned paper (LANDMARKS – Reverse).

I used lots of foam tapes to give depth to most of the fussy cut and other elements on my layout like the photos, word arts, and ephemera from the Collectables pack.

I hope you liked my layout today… please do watch out for another inspiring project from another design team member.
