Hi Everyone, it is nice to be back with a post and inspiration using this gorgeous collection – “Little Treasures” which features balloons and bunnies in wonderful pastel colours, just perfect for your precious baby photo’s.
Products Used: P2930 x 2 Sweet Dreams|P2933 x 1 Baby Steps|P2932 x 2 Cuddles|CT982 Little Treasures Collectables|CD301 Snow Kaiser Card
Other Products Used: Coordinating cotton|Gold Rhinestones
These are such beautiful papers to work with, I love layering up my base for my layout and add some colour coordinating stitching.
I layered my photo of Merley onto a centre circle of snow Kaiser Card and made a frill around the edge.
These papers were great for fussy cutting, I had so much fun and it is very relaxing, I did have to use more than one of the same paper, but think it was worth it.
I also like to layer up the fussy cut elements to give height.
I use foam pads in between all the layers – to finish I added a little gold bling to the centres of the flowers.
Hi Everyone, today I am sharing with you a layout I’ve created using the stunning – Sunkissed collection – this range features tropical flowers & exotic wildlife, be inspired & capture your favourite memories.

Hi Everyone, today I am sharing with you a layout I’ve created using the stunning – Native Breeze collection this range features a bold & striking colour palette and beautiful life-like imagery of banksia, protea & gum leaves – which I have fussy cut and arranged around my photo.

Other Products:Pink & Navy DMC thread
After fussy cutting loads of flowers & leaves from the Gum Leaves, flowering and Banksia Bouquet papers, I then made my base I also hand stitched in two coordinating colours and added my photo.
I then started to arrange all those beautiful fussy cut embellishments around my photo, in the bottom right hand corner.
…..and top left hand corner. To give height I added foam pads to some of the flowers, I also like to curl them, I think this adds extra interest and dimension
I love this photo of my daughter, she always had so much fun on her trampoline, we captured this lovely image of her in mid air. Even though this is an Australian themed collection, I think it can be used with all sorts of photo’s.
To finish off my layout I dotted about some fun words
I hope I have inspired you to use this beautiful collection……it works with all sorts of photo’s. I look forward to seeing your creations over on Kaiser Corner.
Hi Everyone, today on the blog I am sharing with you a layout I’ve created using the beautiful Lily & Moss Collection – the range features pretty pinks & greens and a variety of textures with an artistic feel.
Products used:Lily & Moss Collection|P2883 Pink Plaster|P2886 Flicker|P2887 Flora|P2888 Whirl|P2890 Primary|P2891 Circular x 2 KC Products: SK823 Sticker Book |CT977 Collectables |CD Thyme Kaisercard|DD3352 Lily Decorative Die|RS402 Island Lagoon Rhinestones
Other: Green DMC thread
Once all the base layers were cut to size and matted together I then start to fussy cut all the beautiful flowers and butterflies. If you don’t have enough from the papers, check out the sticker book & collectable packs – I stuck the stickers onto paper then fussy cut around them – I also cut the white edges from the collectables.
I also fussy cut the frames from the P2891 Circular paper, hand stitched around them and layered these onto the base papers
There are so many beautiful flowers in this collection and along with the Lily Decorative Die, I arranged these around my black and white photo.
To give some height to the flowers and embellishments I use foam pads
I love the P2888 Whirl paper, it looks great behind the frames and the stitching & black butterflies finish off the layout.
I hope I have inspired you to use this beautiful collection and look forward to seeing your creations over on Kaisercraft Corner – you can also purchase the Lily & Moss collection here
You can download my instructions here for the layout
The Pink Plaster paper with all those pretty tiles on it is so versatile, I decided to use it as my background and cut out the ones I wanted to use. I have also stitched in between the tiles and have added some bling to them – You can cut out specific tiles to suit your project, they would also look great as a centre section on a card.
I had lots of fun playing with the tiles in this collection. I have made a frame with the mosaic tiles from TILES, and with the decorative tiles from PINK PLASTER, that I have arranged in a grid. You can find the full instructions for this layout HERE.
Sometimes a pattern is too big, dont be afraid to cut it down into strips of varying sizes to add to your background. I have done a process video so you can follow along HERE, and if you want the downloadable PDF you can download HERE
I decided to use Tiles as my background paper and cut up Pink Plaster and used specific tiles to layer behind my photo. The heart shape was hand drawn on some white card stock as I just wanted some plain white highlight to soften the ‘busy’ background paper. I then layered several Collectables die cuts and arranged them around my photo using foam dots for dimension.
I hope we have inspired you to use these beautiful papers from the Lily and Moss collection, which you can find on the Kaisercraft website here
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.

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

Hi Everyone, Chrissy here with my first project for December using the gorgeous & exotic “Grand Bazaar” collection. I love the bright rich colours in this collection and the flowers on the “Boho Paisley” paper were just perfect for fussy cutting.
Kaisercraft Products Used: Grand Bazaar – P2866 Folklore|P2867 Ceramic Tiles x3|P2868 Boho Paisley x 2|FL662 Flourish Pack|
Other Products Used:SB793 Black Pearls|CD324 Crimson Kaisercard|Red Thread for sewing
I used the Crimson Kaisercard for my base, I love adding coordinating card stock as a frame for my layouts. On top of this I matted the reverse side of the “Folklore” paper and added bright red hand stitching. On top of this I matted the mustard side of the “Ceramic Tiles” paper (with more stitching) I fussy cut all the tiles from another piece of the “Ceramic Tiles” paper.
I picked out the tiles from the paper with mainly the dark blues & reds on them. The Wooden flourishes make great titles, I coloured the “Thankful for you” Flourish using black and yellow ink pads.
I fussy cut the flowers from the “Boho Paisley” paper and arranged them around my photo, I love the detail on these flowers
This layout has lots of height, I love using foam pads to some of the fussy cut flowers to achieve this. I also like to curl and shape them.
I loved using this beautiful collection and hope i have inspired you to have a play – and look forward to seeing your creations using it over on Kaiser Corner.

I had so much fun creating this pop-up celebration/party card, I added a photo of my daughter to it – you can add dates and details of a party or add a photo of the person you are sending it to. The Collectables pack was perfect for adding all those pop-up bits & pieces, you can really go to town on it.
Here is a close-up
Thank you, I look forward to seeing your creations using this fun collection.
hugs, Chrissy Tingey

I love the feminine feel and delicate florals in this this beautiful collection and the combination of dainty pinks and green – and isn’t the “Rose” paper just gorgeous, perfect for fussy cutting. I had a photo in mind for my layout, my daughter & I attended a Peaky Blinders festival, I am so proud of her as she completely re-designed an over sized vintage mens outfit to fit herself.

Other Products Used: DMC Green Thread|Black Ink Pad
I started to assemble the base of my layout using Elsie & Jessica papers and Tutu Kaisercard.
I love stitching on my layouts and projects, so after punching along two edges of the Jessica and Tutu Kaisercard I then stitched along the punched edges.
The coordinating stamp set is just so beautiful, I love the lace borders so stamped, fussy cut and stitched along the edges then added these to the layout.
How relaxing is fussy cutting, I couldn’t resist fussy cutting all those beautiful flowers from the two Rose papers.
I arranged all the beautiful fussy cut Roses around my photo, in the top right hand corner.
……….and bottom left hand corner.
I used foam pads to give some height and dimension
……and stamped and fussy cut the pretty little butterflies from the coordinating stamp set to add extra interest
