Hello everyone! I hope that you are safe and well. Today I am sharing my layout which features products and papers from Kaisercraft’s Fallen Leaves Collection. In my layout, I wanted to explore some mixed media techniques for my background and to add some different textures.

I used some torn papers from the collection to add some interest and used a thin layer of white gesso as a base before adding some distress oxide inks.

Adventures with Grand Bazaar

Hello Kaisercraft fans! It’s Lisa here today to share some scrappy goodness with you!
I have been busy playing with the gorgeous ‘Grand Bazaar’ collection.
This is what I have created

PRODUCTS USED:
PAPERS: GRAND BAZAAR Collection: P2865 Collective, P2867 Ceramic Tiles, P2868 Boho Paisley, P2870 Doorway, P2872 Free Spirited, P2873 Carefree,
PP1081 Paper Pad
KC PRODUCTS: CT975 Collectables, SK821 Sticker Book, CD301 Snow Card Stock, Kaiser Mists – KM123 Rose Gold, KM129 Navy

For this layout I have started with a white card stock background.
I have used my Kaiser Mists for a bit of splattering in Rose Gold & Navy.

I have done a bit of fussy cutting for this layout, using the florals in the papers, and the Paper Pad, along with cutting apart elements from the papers.

I have started to build up my layers using some fussy cut pieces and collectable and die-cut elements.

I have then added some of the patterned papers and more elements to my layers.

I have layered some of the fussy cut florals with gold foiled fussy cut florals from the Paper Pad.

I have then added my photo and more of the fussy cut elements.

I have tucked these into my layers, and used foam tape for some of them, for dimension.

I have also built up a layered corner cluster of elements for my page.

I hope that you like what I have created.

The background paper I used helped me to create something magical and beautiful without too much effort. To make it more like a Winter Wonderland layout, I used the Scattered Stars template and molding paste to add a snowflake effect.

Layering the wood flourishes, stickers and rhinestones create depth and fun details.

I like using use foam tape on die-cuts for dimension.

Technique Tuesday – Mixed Media Rusty Cogs

Hello Chrissy here with another Technique Tuesday. Today I am sharing with you how I created some Mixed Media cogs using the Kaisercraft Wooden Flourish pack Workshop, ink pads and paint. 

Workshop Collection: P2793 Tough|P2797 Gallant|P2799 Strapping|P2800 Handsome|P2801 Chivalrous|CT967 Workshop Collectables|FL654 Flourish Pack

Other: SB792 Chocolate Pearls|KC048 Mud Puddle Acrylic Paint|IP756 Ink Pad Gold Pigment|IP755 Ink Pad Silver Pigment|IP719 Black Mini Ink Pad|IP723 Vintage Mini Ink Pad|DD448 Cogs Panel Decorative Die|CD606 Navy Card Stock|KM129 Navy KAISERmist|KM132 Gold Shimmer KAISERmist

Other: Texture Paste|Crystal Lacquer

I started off by painting all the Wood Flourish Cogs in Mud Puddle paint, it doesn’t have to be precise, it is like an undercoat. Next I lightly dabbed on random bits of texture paste, then left to dry for a few mins. The next bit is fun, adding layers of ink using the Silver, Black & Vintage ink pads, lastly adding the Gold ink pad on top. 

I also die cut some cogs from the Navy Kaiser card and used the same process without the texture paste.

Now to create the rest of the layout, I started off by building up my base using navy card and a selection of the Workshop papers.


I LOVE stitching on my layouts, so added some extra interest by hand stitching along the length of some of the papers. Then started to build up my layout by adding layers around my photo.

I’ve added the cogs around my photo, adding foam pads to some to give height and dimension.

I have had a typewriter sat on my desk for a very long time and have never really used it, I decided to type some of the lovely sayings from the collection onto a strip of paper and added that to my layout. 


To finish off my layout I have added a few tiny metal embellishments and pearls to the centre of my cogs. I hope this has inspired you to have ago at Mixed Media cogs, this was my first time, it was fun so I will be doing it again very soon.

Something for the Boys!

Hello all! It’s Lisa here today to share my latest creation with you.
This month we have some gorgeous collections for you,
including the Workshop collection, perfect for the boys in your life.

PAPERS: WORKSHOP Collection: P2793 Tough, P2794 Dashing, P2798 Courageous
KC PRODUCTS: CT967 Collectables, SK813 Sticker Book, CR213 Curios, IT494 Linear Lines Template, CS364 Clear Stamp Set, DD3316 Texture Subway Decorative Die, CD606 Navy Cardstock, Ink Pads IP747 Denim, IP757 Black, IP744 Blue Haze 
OTHER: Cardboard, Modelling Paste. 

I have fallen in love!
With the Template, the Clear Stamps, the colours and elements,
well just all of it!

I do love a bit of grunge!!
This collection has it all. I have started with Dashing (reverse) as my base page.
I have then used the Linear Lines Template and modelling paste,
to make this background my own.

I have then started stamping with a few different inks,
and then I started to build up my page, using rulers and cogs.

I have also used the Subway Texture Decorative Die. I have die-cut these from both navy and white card stock. I have added these into my layers as I build them up.

As I am building I adhere more of the rulers,
more of the subway die-cuts and cogs.

I have used both foam tape and cardboard to add dimension to my layout.

I have then added some of the word stickers from the Sticker Book, sentiment tag from the Collectables and a Curio to finish.

I quite like how this one turned out. Perfect for my boys and their shenanigans 🙂

Until next time!

Hello, Kaisercraft friends. Donna here with my layout using the Workshop collection, perfect for the special men in our lives, dads!

For today’s post, I created a simple scrapbook layout of my husband and daughter.

Click the main image above, download the PDF instructions here

Or click the slider below for step-by-step photos and instructions.

[metaslider id=83988 cssclass=””]

Kaisercraft products used:  WORKSHOP Collection: P2799 Strapping, PP1073 Paper Pad, SK813 Sticker Book, CT967 Collectables, FL654 Flourish Pack, IT487 Distressed Diamonds, KM 129 Navy, KM132 Gold, SB792 Chocolate, IP724 Bark, T303 Foam Tape, T321 Acid-Free Craft Glue

The photos I used were a bit colorful so I converted them to B & W to complement the blue and brown color palette of the Workshop collection.

I added interesting details by distressing, inking and using foam mounting tape for dimension/depth.

Tech Tuesday – Layering Elements

Hello all! It’s Lisa here today to share some inspiration and a technique with you.
I have been working with the Let It Snow Collection and this is what I have created

PAPERS: LET IT SNOW Collection: P2804 Twinkle Star, P2806 Pine Forest, P2807 Shimmering
KC PRODUCTS: CS365 Clear Stamp Set, SK814 Sticker Book, CT968 Collectables, CR214 Curios, IT495 Scattered Stars Template, Kaiser Mist KM127 Turquoise,
Ink Pads IP746 Peacock, IP752 Smoke, IP745 Seabreeze.
OTHER:Modelling Paste, gauze. 

For this layout, I wanted to use the Clear Stamp Set to add extra trees and snowflakes, stamped in Seabreeze Ink, layering with the Collectables to create a forest around my photo.

I have started by building up my background, I have used the Scattered Stars Template to stencil first with Ink and then with modelling paste.
I have also stamped some snowflakes and splashed some Kaiser Mist in Turquoise.

I have started to add in some sticker strips and snowflakes from the Sticker Book.
Adhere some gauze to your layout.
I have then added some of the trees, to start my forest.

Once I have built the first layer of trees, I then adhered my photo, and added another layer of trees, some adhered with foam tape for dimension.

I have then added some more trees to the other side of my photo,
again layering some stamped and some collectable trees.

I have then started to add some more of the stamped snowflakes.

I have used one of the Curios from this collection.

A couple of the sentiments from the Collectables and the Sticker Book.

I hope that you like what I have created.
I am in love with the colours and snowflakes in this collection, just gorgeous!

Until next time!

Monochromatic Flowers with Terhi

Hi there, Terhi here!
It’s the end of July but still I want to share you a layout about my most favourite thing about spring. It’s the cherry flowers, the amazing looks of the trees and smell you can’t forget!

PAPERS: MAGENTA Collection: P2775 Fuchsia, P2779 Raspberry, P2781 Berry, P2782 Pink, P2783 Rouge
KC PRODUCTS: 
PP1071 Paper Pad, CT965 Collectables, CS356 Clear Stamps, KM125 Kaiser Mist Candy, SB794 Pearls Snow, Smooth Cardstock White
OTHER:
T320 Craft Glue, T302 Foam Dots, Cotton thread

As said, I love cherry blooms. I know magenta colour isn’t exactly the same colours as cherry blooms but who cares, it’s obvious I love all blooms in all possible colours!

You can’t bring the smell to a layout, even though it would something you’d love to remember forever, but you can bring the thought about the smell. To do that, I decided to add as many flowers as possible to the layout, to remind about how rich and large the trees are during spring. I hope this makes me remember the smell after years. And to make sure, I also added this fact to my journaling, of course.

The background of the layout is a mix of adding colours and blocking colours. Go ahead and read the PDF instructions to learn more, download it here.

I hope you are inspired!

Believe in You – Magenta Collection

Hello, It’s Lisa back today to share another project with you.
This time I have been working with the stunning Magenta Collection.
Oh the pinks! And the florals! I fell in love with this collection.
Here is the layout that I have created.

PAPERS: MAGENTA Collection: P2776 Flamingo, P2777 Rosa, P2779 Raspberry, P2780 Pomegranate, P2782 Pink, PP1071 Paper Pad
KC PRODUCTS: CT965 Collectables, SK811 Sticker Book, CS356 Clear Stamps, CS361 Woven Line Texture Stamp, IT491 Line Art Template, CD601 White Card Stock, Ink Pads – IP739 Flamingo, IP752 Smoke, IP753 Licorice. Kaiser Mists – KM121 White, KM125 Candy, KM131 Black.
OTHER: Embroidery thread – Pale pink & Hot pink, Needle. Modelling Paste.

I have started with the gorgeous grey ‘Raspberry’ as my base for my layout.
I have then added some texture using the Line Art Template and modelling paste.
I have then used the Woven Line Texture Stamp to add some more depth.
Of course I have then added some splashes using my mists.

I have then used some of the strip stickers from the Sticker Book.
I love the new sticker books, they have so many stickers and two of each page.

I have then started to build my photo stack.
I have added layers of the papers and then added some of the gorgeous florals to my page,
fussy cut from the papers.

I have also cut flowers from the black and white part of ‘PINK’.
I have then used embroidery thread to sew centres to the flowers and segments of the leaves.

I have then added these to my layout, along with more fussy cut florals,
images stamped with the Clear Stamps, and some of the Collectables.

Lastly, I have built my corner cluster by layering some of the patterned papers,
a Collectable sentiment and some more of the flowers and foliage.

I really love the colours in this collection and the flowers are so gorgeous!

There are so many ways to colour the black and white flowers, you could sew them like I did,
or use watercolours or markers to colour them.

So many layers of gorgeousness!
I hope you like what I have created,

Until next time!
Lisa
