Hope, Joy, Love | Native Noel

Hello, Kaisercraft friends. It’s Donna here once again with new inspiration and this time I used the Native Noel collection.

Kaisercraft Products: Native Noel Collection: Holly | Koala | Gingham | Red Foliage | Acetate Specialty | Chipboard | Collectables | Hessian Trimming | SB795 Red | LDB1056 Foam Tape
Other: White Doily, White Acrylic Paint, Border punch, Glue gun/stick

I love the accents I made here like the decorative borders and splatters of white acrylic paint.

One of my favorites in this layout is this bow! I love that there is an option like this in the new collection.

The scatter of red pearls also accentuated the whole layout. Adding the black acetate specialty to the mix of red, green, cream, and kraft made the colors pop a bit more.

Using foam tape gave the whole layout a dimensional feel without being too bulky. I love using Kaisercraft’s thin double-sided tape for this purpose. It’s my go-to foam tape!

‘Tis The Season – Emerald Avenue Card

Hello, Kaisercraft friends. I hope you’re all keeping safe. It’s Donna here with my take on the latest Kaisercraft collection, Emerald Avenue.

I opted to concentrate on the subdued colors in the collection for my card project and I really love how it turned out. It’s a classic combination of nude/beige, gold and kraft.

Kaisercraft Collection: Emerald Eve PP1091 | CT990 Collectables | CT991 Collectables Sentiments | F628 | CD512 C6 Kraft Card Pack | LDB1056 Foam Tape
Other: White Doily, Twine

I layered a couple of papers from the 6.5 paper pad and adhered to the Kraft card base with some foam tape for a bit of dimension. I used foam tape for everything to give depth because of the monochromatic palette.

I used some Paper Blooms in Honey, twine and a white doily for more texture. This is quite a simple card and very easy to recreate.

Thank you for dropping by the Kaisercraft blog today.

Fallen Leaves | Blessed Scrapbook Layout

Hello, Kaisercraft friends! It’s Donna here with you today sharing my take on the newest Kaisercraft collection, Fallen Leaves.

I made a simple layout with a bit of mixed media background using some watercolor splashes. I chose colors that coordinate with the Fallen Leaves color palette. Then I also splattered some gold mist and let it dry on its own so it won’t lose it’s natural sheen/sparkle.

Kaisercraft Products: FALLEN LEAVES Collection: CT981 Collectables | PP1087 Paper Pad | FL668 Flourishes | CD301 White Cardstock | CS381 Clear Stamp | F628 Honey | KM132 Gold Mist | IP750 Chestnut | IP751 Chocolate

Other: Watercolors | Thread

I used several papers from the 6.5 paper pad to add some layers as well as the shaped borders that you can also find in the same paper pad.

I adhered the photo on top of the layered papers and I used some foam tape to mount it for added dimension.

I further embellished with flowers, wood flourishes and collectables.

I love that it is simple yet with texture and dimension because of the watercolor splashes and the layers of papers and clusters of embellishments, respectively.

Sweet Baby Girl Scrapbook Layout

Hello, Kaisercraft friends! It’s Donna here on the blog today with a brand new scrapbook layout using the Little Treasures collection.

Kaisercraft Products: LITTLE TREASURES Collection: P2929 Sweetheart | P2931 Tiny Miracle | P2931 Cuddles | CT928 Collectables | CD601 White Cardstock | RS403 Antique Rose |

Other:  Watercolors | White Doily

I started by trimming a 12″ x 12″ white cardstock into about 10″ x 10″ and a patterned paper into 11″ x 11″ then distressed the edges. I adhered both to another patterned paper using foam tape for a bit of height.

I added splatters of watercolors on the white cardstock and when it has dried I arranged lots of fussy cut and die cuts in a circle to create a wreath.

I used a mixture of different thickness of foam tape to adhere them for different depth. Then I placed my photos over a white doily. I scattered rhinestones to complete the layout.

Thank you for dropping by and I hope you liked my layout!

Challenge # 15 Scraplift

Hello everyone. Welcome to Challenge # 15! I made a list of challenge ideas with the whole team and one of the ideas is a Scraplift challenge. We all agreed this is gonna be fun and interesting! Now, for the challenge, all you have to do is scraplift a Kaisercraft DT members’ layout or card!

Post your layout or card along with the photo/image of the project you scraplifted and the DT member’s name as well, of course.

I chose this layout by Hetty Hall.

And here is my take on her layout

Kaisercraft Products Used: Lily & Moss Collection: P2885 Ombre, P2889 Chalky, P2888 Whirl, SK823 Sticker Book, CR223 Curios, CT977 Collectables
SB786 Rose pearls, IP724 Bark inkpad, EM405 Doily, T315 Double-Sided Tape, T303 Foam Tape, T321 Acid-Free Craft Glue

I just love all the flowers and the layers of papers under the photo.
I inked the edges of the papers and lifted them a bit for texture. I also used foam tape to give the papers and flowers dimension.
I scattered tons of pink pearls to mimic the scattering of flowers.

Interpretation is all up to you but we would love to see the resemblance at least from the original. Like on my layout, instead of scattering flowers, I scattered pearls instead. I also added some stickers and doily.

A Design Team member will choose two submissions just before the next challenge starts which will be on February 8th, 2020 – so you could be in with a chance to win a collection pack.

For your chance to win upload a photo of your project to the KAISERCRAFT CORNER Facebook group with the hashtag #KCCHALLENGE15SCRAPLIFT and add the photo to the CHALLENGE #15 Photo Album (this needs to be done for your entry to count).

Good luck everyone and I look forward to seeing all your projects.

Challenge #14 Winners In no particular order are:

Kylie Coleman

I love all stitched hearts and the patterns peeking under them. Great choice of patterns and the paper strips and flowers on the bottom of the photo balanced everything prettily.

Helen Barker

What I love about this layout are the choice of bold color background, the blocks of squares and the well-balanced placement of all the elements.

Congratulations, ladies!
Please contact Danka via email at – danka.e@kaisercraft.com.au – with your address and what number challenge winners you are… thank you!

“Blessed” Lily & Moss Scrapbook Layout

Hello, everyone. It’s Donna here with my layout using the Lily & Moss collection.

Download the PDF instruction HERE or click the main image above.

PRODUCTS USED: PAPERS: LILY AND MOSS Collection: P2883 Pink Plaster, P2886 Flicker
KAISERCRAFT PRODUCTS:
PP1083 Paper Pad, SK823 Sticker Book, FL664 Flourish Pack, CT977 Collectables, IP724 Bark, EM405 Doily, T315 Double-Sided Tape, T303 Foam Tape, T321 Acid-Free Craft Glue
Other: White embroidery thread

I was inspired by this paper, Pink Plaster, in the collection and I knew I wanted to use it in my project. To highlight the tile patterns a bit more, I got the smaller patterns from the 6.5 paper pad and I fussy cut them one by one then adhered/placed them in an overlapping way.

I used tons of the flowers in the Collectables pack as well as some pieces from the 6.5 paper pad and Sticker book. Foam tape can add height to some of the flat embellishments creating depth or dimension.

I hope you liked my layout today. Thank you for dropping by and see you all in my next post!

Blessed | Grand Bazaar Scrapbook Layout

Hello! It’s Donna here again with my take on the Grand Bazaar collection.

I made a scrapbook layout with white cardstock as a background to showcase the beautiful color palette of this collection.

Download the PDF instruction HERE or click the main image above.

PRODUCTS USED: PAPERS: GRAND BAZAAR Collection: P2871 Persian Rug
KAISERCRAFT PRODUCTS: PP1081 Paper pad, SK821 Sticker book, CR221 Curios, CT975 Collectables, FL662 Flourish Pack, KM132 Kaiser Mist Gold, CD601 White, EM405 Doily, T315 Double-Sided Tape, T303 Foam Tape, T321 Acid-Free Craft Glue,
Other: White embroidery thread, sequins

I love this particular paper in the collection, PERSIAN RUG. I fussy cut just the center and cut it in half and adhered to the right and left side of the layout. This will be the starting point of the diagonal design of the layout.

I placed the feathers from the Collectables pack going down diagonally towards the lower left side of the layout to create movement.

I used thin foam tape to create a subtle dimension to some of the embellishments especially the stickers and Collectables. The gold Kaiser mist and as well as the scatters of sequins all over the layout added a bit of texture. Then I just simply added a few lines of journaling to complete the layout.

That’s all from me today and I hope you liked my layout using the Grand Bazaar collection. Do leave your comments or questions, I love reading your comments.

Oh Happy Day Birthday Cards

Hello, Kaisercraft friends. It’s Donna here with a couple of cards using the Oh Happy day collection.

Download the PDF instruction HERE or click the main image above.

PRODUCTS USED: PAPERS: OH HAPPY DAY Collection: PP1082 Paper Pad
KAISERCRAFT PRODUCTS: SK822 Sticker book, CT976 Collectables, T303 Foam Tape, T321 Acid-Free Craft Glue, CD501 Card Pack Square White
Other: Black and white paper twine

I created something really simple using the paper pad and sticker book only. This colorful and playful collection is perfect not just for birthdays but for any other occasion like graduation or promotion etc.

Believe it or not, I only used the 6″ x 6.5″ paper pad and sticker book in creating these cards. What I love about the paper pads and sticker books is the variety of word arts you can use for birthdays or other greetings for any occasion.

I uploaded a PDF instruction you can download and it’s pretty simple you can do it yourself using the same collection or any of your choice. I made a second card using the same design principle but using different papers and embellishments/elements.

I hope these cards inspired you to create something today! Thanks for dropping by and have a crafty day!

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.

You Make Life More Beautiful – Lady Like Collection

Hello, Donna here with my take on the Lady Like collection. I love this collection with its soft color palette of pink, blues, greys, and greens as well as the designs and patterns especially, yes you guessed right, the floral ones.

You can download the PDF instruction HERE or click the main image above.

PRODUCTS USED:
PAPERS: LADY LIKE Collection: P2874 Rose, P2880 Mabel, P2882 Evelyn
KC PRODUCTS: PP1080 Paper Pad, SK820 Sticker Book, CR220 Curios, FL661 Flourish Pack, CT974 Collectables, CS374 Clear stamps, CS360 Tiny Dot Texture Stamp, IP751 Chocolate Dye Ink Pad, IP740 Cotton Candy Ink Pad, KM132 Gold Kaiser Mist, IT501 Tiny Triangles Designer Template, EM405 Doily, T315 Double-Sided Tape, T303 Foam Tape, T321 Acid-Free Craft Glue
Other: Molding Paste, Hemp Twine

I created a simple mixed media background by using some stencil and molding paste as well as stamping and some distressing to add a bit of texture to the layout.

This banner is one of my favorite parts of this layout. I used the pennants from the sticker book and some hemp twine and I have a beautiful banner! I adhered the pennants in place to secure it properly though even though they’re stickers.

I also like trimming down some word art strips like the ones I used here. I do this when I didn’t one the word art strip/s to overwhelm the overall look of the layout. I also like snipping the edges either a simple slanted trim or some triangles to create a “banner-like” look.

ALL Kaisercraft products to create this layout are available online at the Kaisercraft Shop.

That’s all from me today and I hope you liked my layout as much as I do.
Thank you for dropping by and see you in my next post.

Happy crafting,
