Documented Pen Holder by Mabel Sim

Hi Everyone!

I’m Mabel and I’m back to share with you a off-the-page piece that is really simple to make. I had DIY-ed a pen holder that comes in real handy with my increasing pen collection. I will be sharing with you how I had created this pen holder with Kaisercraft’s new collection Documented.

First, I had started out with a toilet roll that I had gotten from my office janitor as it has a bigger diameter more suitable for a pen holder. I had taken Black acrylic paint from Kaisercolour to paint the exterior and interior of the roll black.

To form the base, I had traced the exterior circumference of the roll on a
scrap piece of cardboard and cut it out.

I had also painted it black followed by apply glue on the circumference such that I can
glued it onto one end of the roll to create the base.

Don’t worry about the open edges as it will soon be covered by burlap strings.

I had also cut a strip of P2460 Library Ephemera (flipped side) while coiling burlap strings
on top and bottom of my pen holder.

Ta-da! The final look after embellishments!

Kaisercraft’s sticker sheet and collectables had made embellishing your work so much easier. There’s no need for fussy cutting and it had made entire crafting process so much faster and convenient.

To tie all elements together, I had brush on white gesso to give it a white wash effect. It also works well as a finishing touch.

Others: White Gesso, Toilet Roll, Cardboard, Burlap Strings

That’s all for my short tutorial today.

It is easy and not time-consuming to recreate. I hope you will feel inspired by my project to recreate one of your own and input your style into it. Do share with us your take on this inspiraiton.

‘Havana Nights’ ~ A layout by Kylie.

Happy New Year everyone! Today I am sharing a layout I have created with the new Havana Nights collection.This collection has a Summery vibe with fun splashes of colour.

Here is a look at my completed layout……

I have used the specialty die cut page, ‘Bamboo’, and backed some of the slots with paper from the paper pad.

I used plain white card stock as my base paper as I really wanted the specialty paper to stand out. I adhered it to the base paper with foam tape and dots to give it a raised appearance.

I have used the lovely greenery sticker from the sticker sheet as a border down the left side of my page. (To tell the truth I actually used two but it would still look fine with only one, I just wanted extra leaves!) I also used two of the smaller floral design sticker borders too.I think it gave a nice dimension to my layout.

Tucked away under my photo you will see some flowers cut from the Hanami Flowers die.I cut three seperate lots and curved them around, underneath my photo.

as soon as I saw this quote i knew it was perfect for my photo. It was at the base of the ‘Tropic’ paper sheet.I have cut it apart for balance before adding it to my layout.

To finish I added some blooms from the collectables as well as a larger bloom I fussy cut from the ‘Tropic’ paper. I used foam dots on some to raise them to give more dimension.

I hope my layout has given you some inspiration today to create your own unique pieces.

Until next time,

Kylie.

Butterfly girl – Wandering ivy Layout by Kavitha

Hello friends, Kavitha here today with you to share my monthly inspiration.

I love floral designs,so undoubtedly my favorite collection this month is “Wandering ivy”.The fresh blue n green shades of the collection gives a spring feel,so i decided to make a layout with butterfly as focal point with lots of flowers around.

I have used “Plaster rose” paper as my base and used the reverse side of it to cut the butterfly using Silhouette sd.

To embellish my layout i used few fussy cut floral from “Ivy blue fields” paper along with collectables.

My layout is fairly simply and took very less time and products to complete.Though i am a fan of layered works,some times i love to keep it simple and let the product shine.

I guess this collection is very gorgeous and doesn’t take much to make beautiful projects,do you agree?

I hope you liked my project.This will be the last post on the blog from the team so i would like to wish you all a “Merry christmas” and “Happy new year” on behalf of Kaisercraft family.

Thank you for stopping by.

Happy crafting,
