Tropical Vibes – Sunkissed

Hello Kaisercraft lovers and welcome to the blog today!

PRODUCTS USED: P2906 Lemon Lime | P2903 Mojito | P2905 Long Island | CT979 Collectables | IT502 Tropical Leaves Stencil | DD474 Cross Lattice Texture Die

WOW! The colours in this collection just grabbed me! So bright and happy. From those beautiful birds to the pretty pink flowers. Just makes me want a holiday. Instead I decided to put the papers to use and scrap a photo of my hubby sitting under a palm tree in our pool at home with a cocktail in hand. The papers were perfect!

I chose the Lemon Lime paper as my background. This was way out of my comfort zone as I almost always use a white background but I loved this paper so thought I would mix it up a little.

To start I added some stencil work using the Tropical Leaves stencil that co-ordinates with the collection and added some leaves to the back ground.

I fussy cut the flowers from the corner of the Long Island paper and then made my paper cluster for my photo to sit on.

Now I start and tuck everything into those layers. I also added in the Cross Lattice texture die too.

Here is a closer look at some of that stencil work and how pretty is that bird!

Thank you for stopping by today. Be sure to pick up this beautiful collection from your local paper craft store now and don’t forget to share your work on our Facebook page.

Until next time – happy crafting!

Together – Native Breeze

Hello!

And thank you so much for stopping by the blog. Today I have a simple layout to share with you.

Kaisercraft products: P2860 Eucalyptus | PP1084 Paper Pad | CT978 Collectables | FL665 Flourish Pack | DD3351 Protea Die

I am a massive lover of white backgrounds! I love that I can go nuts with lots of clusters and embellishments and put it on a white background and it just all pops. So thats how this layout came about.

First I made that lovely big cluster from the collectables back. I die cut two of the beautiful protea die and also ticked them under along with a doily just to soften it a little.

So by starting with making a little cluster it kind of already gives me an idea where my photo can sit.

I then cut a piece of the Eucalyptus paper and placed it down the right hand side of my page just to ground it a little. I added the branding strip too for a pop of extra colour.

I then made my paper cluster for my photo to sit on and adhere that to my page. Once that is all stuck down I can come back and add the extra details like the other two words (Favourite Day and Memories) which are from the collectable pack along with the wooden flourishes.

Some black stamping and some gemstones and my layout is complete!

Until next time – happy crafting!

Techique Tuesday – Die Cut Inlay

Hello and welcome to another Technique Tuesday.

I thought I would share with you a little technique that I love to do – die cut inlay.

Kaisercraft products: PP1083 paper pad | DD3329 Lily decorative die

It is such an easy technique and a pair of tweezers will make the job a little easier!

To start I die cut out using white cardstock and discard all the little pieces.

I then die cut it again 2 times, one using some green paper and then again using some of the pink. Save all these little pieces. I pop them in a dish so they don’t get lost.

Adhere your white die cut outline to your paper. Then add just a small amount of glue to each section and with tweezers add each piece. Some dies are intricate so you may need a little patience!

Here is an example of some I did with last months Grand Bazaar collection.

I hope I have inspired you a little today to give this technique a try. Don’t forget to share on your creations on our Kaisercraft Corner page on Facebook. We love to see your work!

Until next time

Celebrate – Oh Happy Day

Hello and thank you so much for stopping by today! 

Im sharing with you a super quick and super simple layout I have created using the Oh Happy Day collection.  A fun collection with lots of bright colours and hints of gold foil.

Kaisercraft products:   P2892  |  P2898  |  P2899 |  SK822 Sticker Book  |  CT976 Collectables  FL663 Flourish Pack  |  CS372 Paint Splatters stamp DD3349 Happy Birthday Balloons Die

So as much as I love mixed media I totally suck at it so this paint splatter stamp is a winner for me!  I started by stamping my white cardstock with some Licorice ink before adding a few layers of paper.

I then made a couple of little embellishment clusters for both side sof my layout using the collectables along with some of the stickers found in the sticker sheet.

I also added the wooden flourishes.

Here is a closer look at those little embellishment clusters.

To finish off I die cut the Happy Birthday Balloons die 3 times from and stacked them up.  I then added some scraps of the paper behind the balloons.

To “ground” my page I added a couple of the left over branding strips to the bottom of the page along with the candles and make a wish from the sticker book

Until next time – Happy scrapping!

Dream until your dreams come true

Hello Kaisercraft fans and welcome to todays blog post featuring the absolutely beautiful Lady Like collection.

Kaisercraft products:  P2874 | CT974 Collectables | SK820 Sticker Book | DD499 Texture Burlap die | DD630 Floral Frame Die

Oh my – seriously I think this would have to be my most favourite collection so far this year!  I am a huge fan of pink and this collection is just so soft and feminine.  Love everything about it from the little frames and key locks to those stunning florals and soft dreamy papers!

I started by adding a bit of texture to a white background and adhereing some of the Burlap die to a white piece of cardstock.

From there I made my flower cluster and cut out the middle of those frames.  Dont throw the little quotes away as they will come in handy for another project.  I also added some doilys just to give it a really girly look.

I printed my photo in black and white just to keep the whole feel of the layout soft and pretty even tho the photo also has my boys in.  Using pink doesnt bother me at all.

I have also used the floral frame die and added a little bit of patterned paper to the back of the flower just for a little something extra.

I loved creating with this collection.  Im sure I will be creating a few more projects with it.  Dont forget we would love to see your creations too on our Kaisercraft Corner page on Facebook.

Explore – Unchartered Waters

Hi and welcome back to the blog. 

Jo here with you today to share a layout with the new Uncharted Waters papers. This collection is perfect for all your seaside photos, boating or even just to create a masculine inspired page.

KAISERCRAFT PRODUCTS:  P2853 | P2854 | SK819 Sticker book | CT973  Collectables | FL660 Flourish Pack | DD494 Flora Branches | DD815 Sketched Circle

I chose to scrapbook this photo of my hubby and me while we were away down south in the beautiful Denmark area of Western Australia.  Oh the coast line is just stunning!

So many wonderful collectables to choose from in the pack and I started by clustering them all together to make a big focal point before adding my photo.

Here is a closer look at that cluster. 

I love to start my layouts by making a clusters of embellishments and then working my photo in around them.  I have to say the collectables are always my favourite part of any collection.

Here is another close up.  I have added some die cuts from the Flora Branches die for a bit of texture and also the Sketched Circles die just to frame my photo a little too.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Be Brave Be Creative

Hey hey Kaisercraft fans.  Welcome!  Jo here with you today to share with you a layout I have created using the new Crafternoon collection.

Kaisercraft products:  Crafternoon   P2845 DIY | CR572 Collectables | CS369 Clear Stamp | PP1078 Paper Pad | Fl659 Flourishes

I found my my starting point and a bit of inspiration form the cut a part sheet so decided to build my layout around that.

To begin I cut a piece of white cardstock down and placed it over the pretty gingham papers.

Before I adhered them to the page I stamped around the page using the clear stamps from the collection.

I then made two paper clusters.  One for my photo to sit on and one for my quote to sit on.

I then started to tuck under all my little pieces from the collectables and added the branding strips along the top and bottom of the gingham just to frame it all a little.

Under The Gum Leaves – Christmas Tags

Hello and thanks for stopping by!

  Jo with you again today to share with you a really super quick little creation today.

Kaisercraft products:  Under The Gumtrees collection  CT971 collectables | SK817 Sticker book

How sweet are these little aussie animals???  I decided to make some Christmas tags to hang from my gifts.  These were super easy and super fast!

I die cut some tags or you can even buy ready made tags.  Using the strips from the sticker book, add them to the bottom of the tags.

Next I made my little animal clusters from the collectables.  I stuck some flat with double sided tape and also popped some elements up on foam tape.

It is then as simple as sticking them to your tags and adding some string!  These could even be added to the front of a card to make a Christmas card too.

Thanks for stopping by.  Until next time – Happy crafting!

Merry Christmas with Peppermint Kisses!

Hello and welcome. 

Jo here with you today to share a layout with you using the new Peppermint Kisses range.  Oh my I LOVE this collection.  Full of traditional reds and greens with the sweetest of embellishments!





Kaisercraft products: P2818 Ho Ho Ho | P2816 Minty | P2814 Holly Jolly | CT969 Collectables | FL656 Wooden Flourishes

I always seem to struggle with Christmas layouts.  There always seems to be so many photos and I am the sort of person who generally sticks to one or two pics on a page so I challenged myself this time and managed to get 4 pics on this layout.  All of my boys!

To start I used the “Ho Ho Ho” piece and cut the candy strip in half to place half along the top and half along the bottom of my 12 x 12 white cardstock.

I then cut a strip “Minty” (using the spotty side) and a strip of “Holly Jolly” to sit over the top.  Using the reverse of  “Minty” I punched a strip and tucked it under along with a doily that I cut in half.

Next make some tags from Kraft cardstock and adhere your photos to them.

Using the collectables, make your embellishment cluster for the bottom of your layout along with the top.  I also added a couple of the wooden flourishes for the top cluster.

Seriously – how sweet is that little deer!!!
