Loved & Beautiful – a layout by Renee Aslette

Hello Friends,

It’s Renee here, to share with you, a layout I created using the new release Misty Mountains Collection.

This collection features so many pretty elements.  The colours are gorgeous.

The photo on this layout is my niece Madelyn.  I always look for a photo that will be perfectly matched to the collection I am using at the time.

There are loads of details in this layout and many layers.

I started by using the P2501 Eclipse (Reverse) paper.

I then layered some Whipped Sparkle with the IT027 Mini Designer Template – Damask.

I used the template in 4 areas on my background.

I inked onto plastic packaging and stamped using the following Kaisercraft Ink Pads.  IP732 Orchid, IP725 Petal Pink and IP728 Saffron combined with water.  These inks are the perfect colours for this collection.  I then finished off with a strip from the Sticker Sheet.

Here are some close-ups of the finished layout:

Here you can see how layered the template is.  So much detail in the texture.

Loads of Kaisercraft flowers and layers in the clusters.

The Title “Loved & Beautiful” is from the CT933 Collectables.

Another cluster of flowers.

My favourite thing to do is layer and add dimension, dont be afraid to double mount an image and then add a couple more layers in between to close in your photo.

I love Butterflies, with a few quick fussy cut ones you can add movement to your page.

 

 

 

To make the title stand out add a Collectable Doily and a Title with foam mount…..

Till next time have a creative day.

Card Tutorial by Tatiana Yemelyanenko

Hello Kaisercraft fans!

Today I’d like to share my new video tutorial. For my project I used paper from 6 1/2” paper pad from beautiful collection ‘Miss Betty’ and created a card for a friend.

I created layers using paper scraps, printed tape and collectables. I also decided to make my background more interesting an used stamping and texture elements for it.

And as I so much like shimmer and bling I added glitter, sequins and rhinestones to my project. On the final steps I added splashes with black and white mists.

Curious Shall have Adventures Canvas by Mabel Sim

Hi Everyone!

It’s Mabel here again to share with you a little mixed media canvas piece I did with Kaisercraft new collection ‘Beach Shack’.

 

I had used texture paste over Kaisercraft 6×6 Stencil ‘IT460’. It was meant to be mimicking wave ripples, but I had made it seemed like its seaweed instead with the layers of colours I had piled on top. I guess its a creative way to extend the use of the products you own?

I was going for a distressed look, hence I had a makeup sponge ready to sponge on the blues and browns from Kaisercraft inkpads. I had even watered it down to use it as watercolour.

To say that the ephemera I used from this collection is useful will be a major understatement. It had made crafting so much easier and faster as no fussy-cutting is required. Hence, BIG LOVE to these die-cuts.

I also added bits and pieces of cheese cloth that was pulled loose to add additional interest to the canvas piece. It does looks like fishing net doesn’t it?

I had stamped and embossed using the stamp in this collection to create my centrepiece. I particularly like this saying as I always believe that curiosity is the deciding factor to push someone further in exploration.

Tutorial Tuesday- “Love Blooms” layout with Kylie. Video included.

The lovely colour palette and paper prints of Miss Betty had me totally swooning this month. A truly lovely collection! Today I will share how I created my layout featuring lots of paper layers and some die cut flowers. I’ve prepared a process video for you all but before we begin though, let me show you my completed work-

There were so many pretty papers to choose from with the choice of floral,wood grain and fabric print just to name a few.It made my background paper choice hard to decide on!

To begin my layout I cut some length from my backing paper THREAD (reversed). This is probably the only element of my layout that I used precise measurements. I began by cutting 1″ (2.5cm) from top and bottom of my page.Keep both strips, and proceed to cut another 1cm (10mm) from both top and bottom again.Both these smaller strips can be discarded.

Next I cut two 2″ (5cm) strips from ‘SEWN’ .

From here it was a matter of reconstructing my backing paper. I had distressed some edges a little to give texture before doing so.

As you will see in my video I have incorporated three different papers through the middle of my layout. I did not use specific measurements for these and preferred to go by cutting by eye and what fitted best. Once I had backed my photo and laid everything in place I lightly marked everything with pencil so I could get it back in place after using some stamps in the background.This can be a really helpful tip for work where you include mixed media of some form.

Here is a look at my full process video.I hope you enjoy.

I was super happy with the layered element my paper flowers added to my layout, and the wooden flourish button were perfect as a cute centre. The extra leaves I punched also give a nice extra texture too.

A close up of the stamps I used in my background. I think these will become a favourite as I just love the design of them.

I hope you have enjoyed my project today and it inspires you in your own scrapbooking. Don’t forget to join the Kaisercraft Facebook group HERE to share your work and find lots more inspiration.

Until next time,

Kylie.

“Bliss” Scrapbooking Layout by Donna Espiritu

Hello everyone. Donna here sharing a scrapbooking layout using the Beach Shack collection

I also used the Wooden Flourishes and Decorative Dies that coordinates with the collection.

Flourish Pack Beach 35pcs
FL618

Decorative Die – Porthole 
DD808

I don’t have much beach photos or I should rather say, no beach photos at all. But I remembered my dear friend took this photo of me and my family two years ago when we went to Al Wajh, Saudi Arabia. One of the oldest coastal city in north-western Saudi Arabia, situated on the coast of the Red Sea.

I printed two photos and placed it side by side like so. I mounted these with foam tapes for a bit of dimension.

I used one of the specialty papers in the Beach Shack collection as background. Then I brushed a combination of blue, teal, brown and black watercolors. Then magic happens as beautiful patterns in the paper are revealed.

I layered lots of die cuts or collectables underneath and around the two photos. The embellishment is a mixture of paper and wooden flourishes. I also used one paper from the 6 1/2 paper pad that has a wonderful shimmer to it. It’s difficult to capture but the shimmer is beautiful.

I added a thin, brown hemp afterward. I thought the layout needed something to contrast the blueish tone of the page. I placed the brown hemp underneath the photos and the embellishments.

This is quite a simple layout to make and I’m sure you can recreate this as well.

Beach Bliss

Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. Today I am sharing a layout that I have created using papers and embellishments from the Beach Shack Collection. There are so many components to this collection and it makes creating layouts and projects so much fun!

I limited my colour pallet for my embellishments to three tomes which helped me to achieve a cohesive look. I drew my inspiration from my photo and my background paper.

I used the rope corner decorative die and die cut it using a scrap piece of chipboard. I altered it by first coating it with a layer of gesso. Once dry, I used ink daubers and the Kaisercraft ink pads to create my embellishment. I used saffron, vintage and bark.

To create my textured background, I first applied a coat of clear gesso to my background paper. Once dry I then applied some distress spray to areas around my elements. I also used some water and a paint paintbrush to spread the colour around. I stamped my texture stamps in random spots on this blue section and then I used the ripple stencil.

Below my photo I have some more decorative embellishments. I altered some of the wooden flourishes that we released with this collection. I applied a coat of gesso to each and then used a sponge dauber and the Kaisercraft ink pads to apply colout to each element. I also inked the edges of each with the bark ink pad to add extra definition. I sprayed a piece of cheese cloth with a distress spray and added this to my cluster to add some texture.

Sea side treasures – Tutorial tuesday post by Kavitha

Hello everyone!!

Welcome to “Tutorial tuesday” post.Today i made a altered hoop using the “Beach shack” collection.This collection has some

real life beachy images and textures.

First step is to coat the hoop with two layers of heavy white gesso.Once it dried i colored the hoop

with pigment ink pads in shades of green,teal,brown and black.

I just dabbed the colors directly from the ink padNext  apply crackle paste randomly on some areas with palette knife and allow it

to dry completely.Next i cut out a circle using chipboard and adhered the pattern paper to it.Since i am going to use lots

of mediums it will give some strength. To tone down the background pattern i applied a coat of watered down white gesso.

Next i added two more paper layers,just stick the lower half of the paper,tear the upper half in wavy form

and curl it a bit to resemble waves.I coated the whole thing with a layer of clear gesso.Next i applied modelling paste through ripple stencils and colored it using sprays in shades of blue,green

and brown.Now stick the base to the hoop.So here is my finished project,i went a bit on grungy side to resemble the deep sea treasures.

To create texture on the background i used gauze cloth and some teared down laces.All the chipboard designs

are also colored in the same way as the hoop

I added some shells,art stones in different sizes and sequins to add more texture and shine.
