Sunkissed – So beautiful

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.

Products Used: Sunkissed – P2901 Pina Colada|P2902 Coconut|P2908 Tutti Frutti

Kaisercraft Products: CD301 Snow Kaisercard|CS379 Sunkissed Stamp set|CS372 Paint Splatter Background Stamp|SB793 Black Pearls|

Other Products: Pink DMC thread, Punch Around the Page set.

I decided to focus on using all the gorgeous pink & red flowers from the collection – I wanted to show that even though the collection is tropical themed, you don’t necessarily need photo’s to match.

Pink is my favourite colour and these flowers are just gorgeous. My layout is based around the central heart design with the gorgeous fussy cut flowers arranged & layered up around my two photo’s.

I have also used the fabulous Paint Splatter background stamp to add extra interest – and framed the base of the layout and the centre heart with colour coordinating stitching and punched edges.

The coordinating stamp set is beautiful, I stamped and fussy cut some of, one of the pretty butterflies and arranged them around my layout.

To finish off my layout I added the die-cut word – Beautiful

I hope I have inspired you to use this beautiful collection……it can work with all sorts of photo’s, not just your holiday snaps. I look forward to seeing your creations over on Kaiser Corner.

Happy Crafting Everyone, see you next time

Australiana Dies

Love the look of dies but not sure of what to do with them? Kaisercraft has released a range of Australiana floral dies that not only compliment paper collections but can be used on their own.

Kaisercraft Products: CD511 Card Pack C6 White | Decorative Dies: DD812 Sketched Rectangle Frame | DD3351 Protea | IP743 Spearmint Ink Pad | CS916 Occassions Mini Clear Stamps | CD301 Snow Cardstock | CD302 Coal Cardstock

Other: Copic Markers | Versamark Ink | Clear Embossing Powder | Silver Embossing Powder | White Embossing Powder | Stick It Adhesive | 100 pound Cardstock

I was inspired by the protea die. After having a look at images online to see what colours to use, I explored a stained glass technique and decided that I would use this to showcase the die. I used my copic markers to colour the indentation of the die onto cardstock then heat embossed it with clear embossing ink to create the stained glass look. This technique could be used to create home decor items.

To view this collection of dies, stop by your local stockist or visit the online store.

Lily & Moss – Live in the Moment

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

Happy crafting – see you soon

Challenge #14 – Stitching

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.

, IP747 Denim Ink

Hello! It’s Lisa here and I have created layout using the lace stamp from the Clear Stamp set, to stamp with Denim ink, a border at the top and bottom of my base page.
I have also used the stamps to stamp out some butterflies,
that I have fussy cut and adhered to my layout.

I am in love with this romantic floral collection and the stamp set is just the icing on the cake, as you are able to use it on layouts, cards and many other projects.

Other: Versamark Ink | Gold Embossing Powder | Zig Markers |Waterbrush Pen

For my card, I heat embossed the stamp using gold embossing powder and used my zig markers to colour the images in. I also used the border stamp on the side to add extra texture to the background. I masked part of the sentiment quote stamp and heat embossed it as well.

Chrissy Here

The Lady Like collection is just beautiful and I love the coordinating stamp set, especially the elegant butterfly and beautiful lace borders that are part of the set.

Products Used: CS374 Lady Like Stamp Set|P2877 Elsie Paper|P2874 Rose Paper|SB794 Snow Pearls|CS372 Paint Splatter Stamp|CD301 Snow Kaisercard|IP719 Black Ink Pad

I fussy cut the flowers & leaves from the Rose paper and stamped and fussy cut the butterflies and lace borders. I made my card blanks from Snow Kaisercard. I used the fabulous paint splatter background stamp on my card blanks, then arranged all my fussy cut elements onto them. For added interest and a bit of luxury I lined my envelope using the Elsie paper.

I hope I have inspired you to use the beautiful coordinating stamp sets.

Rikki G

I wanted to just add some finer details with the lace and floral stamps to my background nothing to overshadow the amazing details in the papers.

An Aussie Christmas Card

Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. Today I am excited to share with you a Christmas card that has an Australian flair, both inside and out! I will be using products from Under the Gum Leaves by to create an Aussie Christmas Card.

Kaisercraft Products: Under the Gum Leaves Collection – PP1077 Paper Pad |Cardstock- CD601 White |CD308 Bark |CD366 Jungle | CT971 Under the Gum Leaves Collectables |CS368 Under the Gum Leaves Clear Stamps | DD552 Nested Stitched Squares Decorative Dies | Ink Pads- IP751 Chocolate | IP735 Amber |IP749 Fern |IP748 Forest |CD509 Card Pack Square Kraft |EF299 Cobblestones Embossing Folder |SB711 Red Rhinestones

OTHER: Ink Daubers | DD392 Mini Christmas Foliage |Onyx Black Ink

I used three inks and ink daubers to ink then stamp these foliage images. Having a stamping tool made this process simple, as you can ink sections of the stamp at a time.

I used a variety of collectable plus die cut pieces to add dimension to the foliage. I also like to add dimensional foam between my layers so that I have depth and also places to add my embellishments to my focal images.

Below is a video tutorial which demonstrates how to create the entire card.

If you would like to purchase any of the products from this collection, be sure to visit your local stockist or visit the Kaisercraft online store.

Crafternoon Mini-album

Hello, Kaisercraft friends. It’s Donna here sharing a project I created using the Crafternoon collection.

I was inspired by the Fancy Doily Decorative Die and created a mini-album using the die as the base.

Photos can be easily placed to the pages, sizes ranging from 2 inches x 2 inches to 2 inches x 3 inches. Or depending on your preference.

[metaslider id=85501 cssclass=””]

I love the fun embellishments that coordinate with this collection. The wood flourishes, the word arts, and the ephemera and color palette. Perfect for all the crafters like me.

I hope you liked this project as much as I do. Mini-albums are fun to make and I hope you give it a go.

Have a happy and crafty day!

SPARKLE – Let it Shine Collection

Hello and Welcome,
It’s Annette here, delighted to be sharing my first project as a member of the Kaisercraft Design Team. This collection is so pretty, the shades of turquoise with shiny silver and white, just perfect non-traditional Christmas pages or snow holidays. I chose to create a LO of my daughter, who always leaves a little sparkle wherever she goes.

PAPER: LET IT SNOW Collection: P2808 All is Calm, P2806 Pine Forest, plus reverse & quote strip, P2803 Delightful, P2804 Twinkle Star
KC PRODUCTS: Cardstock: 2 x Slate,1 x White. Die cut, F632Flowers, SK814Sticker Book, Rhinestones- Clear, KM127Kaiser Mist, Flourish pack – Shine small wooden snowflakes,
OTHER: Silver Glitter, Lace and larger wooden snowflakes.

I love to frame my pages, so using the deep SLATE grey as my base and then WHITE cardstock, I felt it highlighted the completed page perfectly. Distressing and shabbying ?? (is that really a word) is another feature of my scrapbooking ‘style’.

I also triple matted my photos as they are the main focal point. Don’t we scrapbook is to tell a story however simple about our photos?
I also misted, added rhinestones and glitter to complement the title ‘SPARKLE’.

There are many layers of prettiness with lace and clusters, I hope you like what I have created. if you wish to create your version of my Layout the instructions can be found HERE.

Bye for now, Happy Scrapping, Annette x

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 🙂
You can find the full instructions for this layout HERE.

Until next time!

Together – Magenta

Hello and welcome Kaisercraft fans!  It’s Jo back with you to share another guest design project featuring the STUNNING new Magenta collection.

Let me just say, I adore this collection.  As pink is my favourite colour this ticked all my boxes and with those beautiful watercolour blooms – seriously how can you go wrong?

I chose this photo to scrap of my hubby and daughter on a recent trip to Sydney. 

Kaisercraft products used:  PP1071 Paper Pad | P2780 Pomegrante | P2782 Pink | CT965 Collectables | DD472 Textured Weathered Die | DD547 Circle Vines Die | CS162 Stains Stamp

I started with a white background which always seems to be my go to.

I think added a couple of strips of that stunning paper Pomegrante to the top and bottom of my white card base.  To ground them I added a couple of strips of the reverse of that paper too.

I then made my paper cluster for my photo to sit on by choosing a few sheets from the 6 x 6 paper pad.  There is also a doily tucked in too.

Now comes the fun part – embellishing.  Using the Pink paper with all those pretty flowers on, I fussy cut a few of the black and white flowers to tuck under my photo adding in some of the die cuts from the collectables.

To add a little texture without getting messy I added some die cuts from the Textured Wood die and tucked them under my layers.

Next I set about clustering my embellishments on the bottom and adding the title.

I then added the Circle Vines Frame which I die cut from white cardstock and added my butterfly over the top.  A pop of black with some stamping and your layout is complete!

Thank so much for popping by.

Until next time
