Handmade layout by Hetty Hall

Hi there Kaiser Fans it is Hetty with you again today sharing a layout using the lovely soft colours and prints in the Crafternoon collection. This collection suits all sort of themes but for this layout I choose a crafty photo seeing that was what this collection was created for.

PRODUCTS USED:
PAPERS: P2844 Embroidery|P2841 Back Stitch|CT 972 Collectables|

KC PRODUCTS: Rhinestone Flourish|foam dots

I think the black and white photo really stands out against the soft pastel colours and I just love all those printed stitched embellishments.

I kept this layout pretty simply and tried to work with the design on the printed paper. I tend to this a lot as all the hard work is done for you but still makes for a fantastic layout. So I added a bit of colour behind my photo to make it pop a little and started working on my design by arranging all my collectable die cut pieces. I tried to pick pieces relevant to the photo even though they use pencils I thought the brushes and pallet fitted in just fine. I layered everything with foam dots, I find the extra dimension really makes a layout come to life.

You will be able to find full instructions for this layout here.

Before I go I thought I would share a second layout I made with this collection. On this one I used a lot of fussy cutting so there was a bit more work involved with this one but love how it turned out.

That is all for me for now, happy crafting!

Until next time….

Cards and gift tags in display box

Good morning Kaiser Fans and welcome. Today I would like to share with you some Christmas cards and tags I made using the fabulous Under the Gum Leaves Collection. After I made them I didn’t quite know how to store them so came up with this storage display box. I really like how it turned out.

This box will hold 6 square Kaisercraft cards and 10 Gift Tags.

PRODUCTS USED:
PAPERS: PP1077 Paper Pad|SK817 Sticker Book|CT971 Collectables|

KC PRODUCTS: Weave Cardstock – Bark|Foam Dots|

The cards were kept pretty simply, for the background I just used some pretty papers chosen from the paper pad collection. I die cut a variety of white circles for each card and used some gorgeous pieces from collectables to decorate using foam dots to adhere for dimension.

For the gift tags I used a die and some card stock to pre-cut all the tags. I then again used some pretty papers for the background and embellished with a combination of collectables and stickers from the sticker book. The great thing about the sticker book is that the stickers are printed on some sturdy card stock so I ended up adding some baby powder to the sticky part and use them like any other die cut, just love them so versatile.

A friend when visiting one day spotted my creation and liked it so much she commissioned me to make some for her Christmas shop so I came up with an even bigger box. This one will hold 12 square cards and 20 Gift Tags.

You will be able to find the instructions on how to make this box here.

That is all from me today. I hope you like my creations and get started on your Christmas card list because Christmas will be here before you know it.

Until next time…..

It is the most wonderful time of the year

Hi there Kaiser Fans and welcome back to the blog, it is Hetty with you again. Today I would like to share with you a Christmas layout using the ever so gorgeous Starry Night collection. Look at those stunning gold foil accents.

The most Wonderful time of the year

KC PRODUCTS: SF 901 White Art Foam sheet|DIY Flora Daisy Die|Flower Cluster Die|IP 739 inkpad – Flamingo|

I kept this layout really simple and just made my photos shine but adding some of the gorgeous gold pieces from the Collectables and combined it with some die cuts from some darker paper to make it pop. The flowers are handmade from art foam using a flower die and coloured with some Kaiser ink.

Technique Tuesday – Shaker Tags

Hello and welcome back to the blog, it is Hetty with you today sharing my very first Technique Tuesday blog post.

Today I would like to share with you some shaker tags using the cute Peppermint Kisses collection.

Products Used:
Papers: Peppermint Kisses Collection: PP1075 Paper Pad|CT969 Collectables|
KC Products: Permanent Black Kaiser Ink|Kaiser Christmas Sentiment Stamps|Kaiser pocket pages or album inserts|Kaiser Die Cut Machine|Kaiser White Cardstock|
Other: Fuse Tool|Punch Tool|Tag Dies|Eyelets|Glitter|Thread|Washi Tape|

Start by die cutting to large tags from your white cardstock.

Next cut large tag from chosen printed paper from the paper pad and lay the smaller tag in the middle of the big one as seen in photo below.

You should now have something like this:

Glue the two white tags back to back (I like to use two to for sturdiness) add the ‘from – to’ sentiment to the back of the white tag.

Glue the printed front onto the front of the white tag and you now should have something like this:

Next grab your pocket page or album insert and add your large tag on the top. Add some washi tape to hold it in place.

Run your fuse tool along the sides and the bottom of the tag but not the top sides just yet as you need to insert your tag first.

Trim closely to the seam but leave a big gap at the top. You should now have something looking like this:

Insert your tag and add other embellishments like glitter and whatever else you would like to add to your shaker tag.

Now add the die back on top and line it up so you can finish the top edges.

Trim off excess plastic. Punch a whole through the top, add an eyelet and some ribbon or thread. Embellish the outside with your favourite pieces from the collectables range.

That is it, you are done. I hope you liked this tutorial. These tags are so fun to make and the best part is they are reusable. Write on the back with a permanent marker and it wipes off again easily with some methylated spirits or something similar.

I made a special display box so I could store my cards, gift cards and tags. Such a cute range, perfect for kids and kids at heart.

That is it for me today – Happy Crafting!

Until next time…..

Wonderful – Layout by Hetty Hall

Hi there Kaiser Fans, welcome back to another blog post from me, Hetty with you today. I have to say I am in love with the collections Kaisercraft brings out that contain the foil, they just add that bit of extra pizzazz don’t you think?

PRODUCTS USED:
PAPERS: Let it Snow Collection: P2807 Shimmering|
CT968 Collectables|CR214 Curios|

KC PRODUCTS:|Foam Tape|Foam dots|

The Collectables make it so easy to put together a quick page, looks like you used lots of products.

Check out that beautiful foil touch and this is also a close up of a Curio used, love them!

I had fun actually using multiple photos, I generally tend to just use one but being a Christmas page I thought it would be a good idea to add a few more, I do like how this turned out.

I hope I inspired you to visit your local craft store and buy this collection and start working on your Christmas layouts.

You will find full instructions for this project here.

That is it for me today – Happy Crafting!

Until next time……

Guy Stuff – layout by Hetty Hall

Hi there Kaiser fans, Hetty with you today sharing a layout using the super handsome ‘Workshop’ Collection. Don’t you just love the grunge tones, the colour scheme – grey and navy with a hint of terracotta, so rustic looking, love it!

Guy Stuff

PRODUCTS USED:
PAPERS: Workshop Collection: P2798 Courageous|P2797 Gallant|P2799 Strapping| CT967 Collectables|CR213 Curios|
SK813 Sticker Book|

KC PRODUCTS: Kaiser Cardstock White|Corrugated Cardboard|Foam Tape|Foam dots|

I started by adding a few different patterned papers in various sizes as well as a piece of white cardstock as a base for my photo, of course all layered with dimensional tape and I distressed the edges with a distress tool.

In the photo above you can see all the elements from the collectables I used to layer around my photo. It takes a bit of time trying to get it right but it is so much fun. Once I was happy with my design I added them all with some foam dots and tucked them in between the layers.

I also added some elements from the Sticker Book, like this sentiment strip.

Last but not least a couple of Curios to finish it all off.

It was super cool to be working on an all boy layout as I don’t create them nearly as much!

You will be able to find fully instructions for this layout here.

That is it for me today, happy crafting.

Until next time…

Love This – layout by Hetty Hall

Hello there Kaisercraft fans and welcome to the Kaiser Blog, it is Hetty with you today.

I am so lucky to be able to share with you another Guest Design Team layout this time using the super gorgeous Magenta Collection. I just love pinks and greys together combined with a few hints of black.

Love this

PRODUCTS USED:
PAPERS: MAGENTA Collection: P2779 Raspberry|P2782 Pink|PP1071 Paper Pad| CT965 Collectables|CS356 Clear Stamps|

For my photo mat I chose some pretty colours from the paper pad and tore them slightly larger size then my photo and added them with some foam tape in between the layers.

Once I had my base I started building up the layers around my photo using the matching collectables.

After a bit of time playing with the design I was happy to stuck it all down with foam dots and finished the layout with some leaf stamping.

Because I worked with the gorgeous design and print already on the paper this layout came together so easily.

That is it for me today, happy crafting.

Until next time…

Blessed – Layout by Hetty Hall

Hello there Kaisercraft Fans, it is Hetty with you today. I am so excited to share my first Guest Design blog post with you today and what a great start it is as well as this collection is gorgeous.

– Antiquities, just love this colour combo –

Blessed

PRODUCTS USED:
PAPERS: ANTIQUITIES Collection: P2746 Precious|P2740 One of a Kind|PP1067 Paper Pad| CT960 Collectables|CR207 Curios|CS352 Clear Stamps

KC PRODUCTS: CB153 Raw panels – Corrugated Cardboard|CD650 – White Smooth Cardstock

I tore some random pieces of paper from the paper pad and layered them behind my photo. I nearly always use dimensional tape or cardboard in between my layers, not only because I like the look of it but also because it gives me room to add other elements like the collectables. In this close up you can see the layers.

I used the matching stamp set to randomly stamp the script stamp with black ink so it looks like I added some texture.

My favourite Kaisercraft product has always been the Collectables but how gorgeous is this Curios butterfly? Love the Curios, gorgeous circles of glass with beautiful prints that add shine and dimension to your projects, definitely a close second for sure.

The Antiquities Collection is super gorgeous with those yellow flowers and the blue tones, yet is not too feminine so can be used for both boy and girl projects.

So there you have it, I hope you like my first project as a Guest Designer and that you are inspired to get out your Antiquities Collection and start creating.

Until next time….

Hugs

Hetty
