Amethyst at an angle single page

Kaisercraft Products: AMETHYST Collection – P2916 Crystal | P2917 Full Moon | CD301 Snow Cardstock | CT980 Amethyst Collectables | CT986 | Collectables Sentiments
Today on the blog I am sharing single page layout with an angle. I love using my white cardstock backgrounds, but with this range and its many beautiful page designs I just couldn’t help myself but wanting to use a little bit more paper. So I cut the beautiful Crystal page in half diagonally and used it as part of my layout.
A combination of cut out leaves from the Full Moon sheet and my Collectibles make up the bulk of my clusters.
Have you seen the new Sentiments Collectibles – what an amazing and wonderful addition to the family – filled to the brim with sentiments and words, you can now enjoy double the fun of these. So useful and perfect for cards and on any of your projects.
Layer elements using foam tape so that they can peek over your photo and finish them off with some rhinestones in the same shades as found in your paper. It really is in the details.
More little Collectible treasures found in the packet include this gorgeous heart and little leaf – perfect for those layers and clusters.

And can I just say that I am not a purple lover – but this range is more navy than purple and with its amazing designs this range totally stole my heart! Perfect and gorgeous in every way. You are sure to fall in love with it too. Until next time – we hope you love it as much as we do – happy crafting!

Tropical Vibes Single Page

KAISERCRAFT PRODUCTS USED: SUNKISSED Collection:
P2907 Pineapple Sour, P2908 Tutti Frutti, CT979 Collectables, Kaisermists Gold, T302 Foam Dots, LDB1056 Foam Tape, T321 Acid-free craft glue

Hi everyone, welcome to today’s blog post with me Jowilna. With our summer slowly waving goodbye there is nothing better than dreaming of a long tropical holiday on a gorgeous island. And if that’s not on the cards at least we can escape with this beautiful Sun kissed range of papers.

I was inspired by this beautiful photo my cousin took while visiting the beautiful resort on Bhutan. It matched the paper perfectly and i simply couldn’t resist. I started off by cutting elements from the Tutti Frutti paper. I matted my photo and then finding the placement layered the cut outs under the photo matt before adhering most of the elements using foam tape.
Some elements peek out from under the photo and others are layered on top to add interest and dimension.
The beautiful elements from the Collectibles packet help to add interest. I used the sentiment from the Collectibles packet down the side of my layout as a title.
I added some gold splats using my Kaisermists, then added some red and gold rhinestones in various sizes to finish off my layout.
What will you create with this stunning range of papers and elements?
And did you see the second packet of Sentiment Collectibles – Love them so much for cards and Pocket pages – a total game changer!

Lily & Moss simple single page

Hi everyone, today on the blog I am sharing another Lily & Moss layout this time using a patterned paper as background with some of my left-over elements. It’s always amazing how far you can stretch your collections with a bit of imagination – real crafting value!

Kaisercraft products: Lily & Moss Collection |P2891 | Circular
P2885 Ombre | CT977- collectables | SK826 Sticker Book
KM132 | Gold Shimmer Kaiser Mist | Pearls
I used the Ombre {reverse} patterned paper as my background. I don’t often work on anything but white but this sheet of paper was begging to be used.
I used my left-over elements from the Collectibles packet as well as some stickers.
I cut a strip of the blocks from the Circular patterned paper {reverse}. Adhere the strip of blocks to the left of your matted photo. Then add a quote block peeking out from behind the photo. The rest of the layout consists of arranging flowers and leaves around the photo.
Finishing off my layout using pearls, diamante and some gold Kaisermist splatters. The gold splatters look amazing against the dark green background – adding life and interest.

I hope you are inspired to use the rest of the elements left- over from your beautiful collection. It really goes to show that you don’t need a lot of supplies to be able to create a beautiful project. Until next time Jowilna xxx

I Love this exotic collection the colours are absolutely gorgeous, I particularly love the combination of the mustard and green colours against the woodgrain paper – so picked out the colour coordinating doors from the Doorway paper to create my layout. I layered the doors either side of my photo going diagonally across my layout.

Happy crafting – Chrissy Tingey xXx

Sticker strips from the sticker book as well as thin coloured sticker strips was added below the photo creating some interest with their straight lines.

Until next time I hope you are inspired by this range to create some beautiful layouts capturing those special memories. Jowilna xxx

Lady Like themed cards

Welcome to today’s blog post. I am sharing some cards using the gorgeous Lady Like range.

Products used: Lady Like Collection PP1080 Paper Pad |SK820 Sticker Book | CT974 Collectables | Other: SB786 | Rose Pearls

For my cards I used the Paper Pad and Collectibles – for quick and easy cards the paper pads are amazing. Plus what I love is that I am not cutting into the large sheets and wasting paper.
I used the circle elements from the sticker book and raised them to add some dimension and interest.
A quick scalloped edge punch adds interest to this card.
Clusters elements together for interest like the sticker circles and pearls. Some roses peaking out from under the circle adds more interest.

Until next time – I hope you are inspired to use those paper pads combined with all the other amazing products to create some quick cards.

Under the Gum Leaves Decor

It’s always tricky to use a range that is not typical to your area, like Under the Gum Leaves. But having said that I fell in love with it when I first saw the amazing designs and that Koala simply stole my heart. But that also doesn’t mean that I can’t or won’t use it. And it turns out to be a really versatile range too.

I chose to create a little Christmas decor tree that can fit into any setting around the holidays no matter where in the world you are. The tree consists out of snowflakes cut on my Silhouette machine, and i9n a few easy steps I created something that even the kids can make during the festive season.

Kaisercraft Products: CT971 Collectables – Under the Gum Leaves ; P2832 Gum Leaves
Other: Beads, Silhouette, Wooden Skewer, Hot glue gun

Cut several snowflakes from the patterned paper, punch holes in the middle of each snowflake. Then string them onto a wooden skewer with beads in between. Use a hot glue gun to adhere each bead to the snowflake.
I stuck the skewer in a piece of foam with a brown piece of felt as a tree skirt. Decorate the bottom of the tree with elements from the Collectables packet.
For the tree topper I added an extra bead and tied a tag from the Collectables packet with bakers twine to the top.
Sprinkle the tree with clear glitter to add some festive shimmer to it. And in a few easy steps you created a simple but stunning Christmas decor tree.
Until next time – I hope you have started your Christmas planning so long.

Technique Tuesday – Sewing and stamping

Welcome to another Technique Tuesday on the blog. Today I am sharing a quick and easy way of adding some texture and detail to stamped images. I love using my stamps in different ways and this is such an easy way of dressing up your stamped details.

Kaisercraft: Crafternoon Collection P2841 Back Stitch; P2845 DIY; SK818 Sticker Book;
PP1078 Paper Pad; CT972 Collectables
Kaisercraft Products: SB782 Denim Pearls; Rhinestones; CS369 Clear Stamps; IP752 Smoke

I stamped the heart onto my background and then used a paper piercer to pierce holes, before adding sewing to the outlines of the heart and the crosses inside. Heres how I did it:
Stamp the image onto smooth white cardstock.
Use your paper piercer and pierce holes at the end of each line.
Thread your needle and make a knot at the end. Start sewing from the back to the front and then to the back – keep going until you have sewn all the crosses and the border. Adhere the end of the thread using double sided tape at the back.
For an even cleaner sewn look, you can use a lighter colour ink or the same colour as the thread you are using.
A lovely quick and easy way to add detail to your stamped images – by using the stamped lines as a guide to add sewing.
Until next time – Happy stamping and sewing! Jowilna x
