KC PRODUCTS: P2810 Wonderland, Sk814 Sticker Book, CT968 Collectables, FL655 Flourish Pack, IT495 Scattered Stars template, KM127 Turquoise, RS402 Island Lagoon, EM405 Doily, T303 Foam Tape, T321 Acid-Free Craft Glue

The background paper I used helped me to create something magical and beautiful without too much effort. To make it more like a Winter Wonderland layout, I used the Scattered Stars template and molding paste to add a snowflake effect.

Layering the wood flourishes, stickers and rhinestones create depth and fun details.

I like using use foam tape on die-cuts for dimension.

That’s all from me today. I hope liked my layout! I love reading your comments on my projects so just leave some in the comments section and if you have any queries I would gladly answer as much as I can.

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

Thank you for dropping by and have a happy 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

Technique Tuesday – Inking Edges

Hello Kaisercraft fans!

This Let It Snow collection was right up my alley – not only is teal my absolute favourite colour, it also oozes sparkle, shine and shimmer. A perfect combination. And when I saw the papers and the silver stars, the photo of my daughter doing a make-up demo with star sequins was perfect.

Products used: P2802 Falling Snowflakes, P2804 Twinkle Star, P2806 Pine Forest, P2807 Shimmering, P2808 All is Calm, P2809 O’Christmas Tree (2 of these), CT968 Collectables, CR214 Curios, SK814 Sticker Book, Kaisercraft foam tape, IP745 Sea Breeze Ink Pad, IP746 Peacock Ink Pad, CS372 Paint Splatter Texture Stamp

Today, I am going to talk about inking the edges of your papers. An old scrapbooking technique, but a really useful and simple way to enhance your layouts. Whether you ink the edges in the same colour theme or mix and match the colours to the colours on your page, it all makes a lovely feature.

In my layout I have inked the edges of all my pieces of paper, collectables and the piece of fussy cut pine leaves. You can use your ink pad straight to the paper at a perpendicular angle and run up the edge, or you can use a dauber or a blending tool. I have gone with a blending tool (with changeable sponges so as not to mix your colours).

Hold your paper close to the edge you want to ink and hold your blending tool at an angle. The closer the gap to the paper (the flatter your blending tool), the wider your inked edge will be on the edge of the paper.

Inked edges make a lovely finishing edge to papers.

Here are some close-ups to my layout – the edges of the collectables are also lightly inked

Hope you enjoy this collection as much as I have.

Sparkle – Let It Snow

Hi Everyone, Chrissy here with my first official post for Kaisercraft, I just want to say again, thank you so very much for this amazing opportunity Melissa Kennedy.

For this post I am using the gorgeous “Let It Snow” Kaisercraft collection. The colours in this range are just beautiful and who doesn’t love a bit of foiling. My photo is of my daughter Merley, she loved dressing up at Christmas time in her fairy outfits.

Products used: P2803 Delightful|P2805 Snowfall|P2806 Pine Forest|P2809 O’Christmas Tree|P2810 Wonderful|CT968 Collectables|CR214 Curios|KM127 Turquoise Kaisermist|SB775 Aqua Marine Rhinestones

Other products used: DMC Thread|Tiny Star die-cuts

I started by layering up all the papers I wanted to use for my base, cut them to size then added some stitching around the edges using colour coordinating thread. I cut out a circle from the centre and tucked my photo in there just to make sure it looked ok. On reflection I decided to use a larger photo that filled the entire circle.

Now the fun bit……fussy cutting all the embellishments, I fussy cut all the beautiful foiled flourishes from the Wonderland paper, I love that when they are fussy cut they curl up and give that extra dimension on your project.

Once all the embellishments have been fussy cut, I like to arrange them around my layout without sticking them down.

I also used some of the collectables, these are just brilliant to tuck in and around your layout or project, some are just shapes others having lovely sayings on them. I have also added one of the pretty Curios to my project.

To finish off my layout I have added some rhinestones and tiny star die-cuts. This is such a beautiful collection, I have enjoyed working with and hope you do to, I look forward to seeing your creations.

Happy Crafting,

Tech Tuesday – Layering Elements

Hello all! It’s Lisa here today to share some inspiration and a technique with you.
I have been working with the Let It Snow Collection and this is what I have created

PAPERS: LET IT SNOW Collection: P2804 Twinkle Star, P2806 Pine Forest, P2807 Shimmering
KC PRODUCTS: CS365 Clear Stamp Set, SK814 Sticker Book, CT968 Collectables, CR214 Curios, IT495 Scattered Stars Template, Kaiser Mist KM127 Turquoise,
Ink Pads IP746 Peacock, IP752 Smoke, IP745 Seabreeze.
OTHER:Modelling Paste, gauze. 

For this layout, I wanted to use the Clear Stamp Set to add extra trees and snowflakes, stamped in Seabreeze Ink, layering with the Collectables to create a forest around my photo.

I have started by building up my background, I have used the Scattered Stars Template to stencil first with Ink and then with modelling paste.
I have also stamped some snowflakes and splashed some Kaiser Mist in Turquoise.

I have started to add in some sticker strips and snowflakes from the Sticker Book.
Adhere some gauze to your layout.
I have then added some of the trees, to start my forest.

Once I have built the first layer of trees, I then adhered my photo, and added another layer of trees, some adhered with foam tape for dimension.

I have then added some more trees to the other side of my photo,
again layering some stamped and some collectable trees.

I have then started to add some more of the stamped snowflakes.

I have used one of the Curios from this collection.

A couple of the sentiments from the Collectables and the Sticker Book.

I hope that you like what I have created.
I am in love with the colours and snowflakes in this collection, just gorgeous!

Until next time!
