Pure Bliss

We are well into summer here in New Zealand and what better way to celebrate those lovely summer days with a lovely tropical and bright collection – Sunkissed. It just oozes summer! Here is my layout I created with this collection

Kaisercraft products used: P2901 Pina Colada; P2905 Long Island; P2907 Pineapple Sour; P2908 Tutti Fruitt; CT979 Collectables; CD328 Kaisercard Magenta; CD366 Kaisercard Jungle

P2905 Long Island paper is used as the base page for my layout, matting my photo with the Magenta and Jungle cardstock before placing this on my page. I then built up the top left flower cluster using a mix of the collectables and fussy cut images from P2908 Tutti Frutti, placing my photo just under the leaves.

At the right bottom corner of my photo I then placed the fussy cut Toucan image from P2907 Pineapple Sour with thick foam tape, and then layered this up with fussy cut images from P2908 Tutti Frutti and the collectables.

The butterfly is from the collectables and I have added foam tape under the wings for dimension. I have then finished off adding the tags from the collectables “Perfect Day, Pure Bliss and the tag off the photo “Feeling a little bit Tropical”. The wording at the bottom of the page is the cut off strip from the P2901 Pina Colada paper.

This Sunkissed Collection can be found at Kaisercraft, along with all their other collections here.

Thank you for visiting, have a lovely week!

Mini Album – Grand Bazaar

Today I am up on the blog using the Grand Bazaar collection to make a 4½” x 6½” mini album. I love the colours of this collection and the gorgeous patterns.

Products used: PK615 Paper collection; PP1081 6½” x 6½” paper pad; SK821 Sticker book; FL662 Flourish Pack; CT975 Collectables: CD512 Kraft C6 Card Pack; IT913 Leafy Stencil; Kaisercraft Kraft Cardstock

I have used the CD512 Kraft C6 Card pack and kraft stock as the base of my album – even using a card to create the spine and using the envelopes to create the pages. I have used precut chip board to make this.

The cover has been made with the P2868 Boho Paisley paper, and then I have stencilled IT913 Leafy stencil with textured paste on the front cover and then used the bar strips P2872 Free Spirited paper top and bottom and then created the front cover with collectables and the sticker book

Here are some sample pages from the album:

I have created a video walk through of the mini album. To have a look, click here

This is my last post for 2019 – wishing you and your family all of the best over the Festive Season and best wishes for 2020.

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.

Rest and Relax – Card

Hello lovely Kaisercraft fans

I am on the blog today with a card I have created with Uncharted Waters entitled “Rest and Relax” – perfect title for the beach!

Kaisercraft: PP1079 6″x6″ paper pad, SK819 Sticker Book, SB718 Bliss Pearls and CT973 Collectables

Kaisercraft Product: Square card pack; foam tape

I have used the papers from the paper pad for the base of my card, distressing then first and making one slight smaller and then adhering to the base of the card. I have made a port hole from the wood grain paper in the same paper pad.

I have used the paper that resembles water as the base for the porthole. Using acetate under the smaller ring, and adding the fish from the sticker book and some sequin, I closed of the porthole with foam tape to make a shaker box.

Once this was placed in the middle of the card, I then used the Bliss pearls as “the nuts and bolts” for the porthole.

The shells and the anchor are a mix of the collectables and the sticker books which have been added with foam tape for dimension.

I have finished off the card with some muslin cloth and some art stones for “sea” effect

Creative with Crafternoon

Hello crafty friends!

OMG this is such a cute range – and the colours are just fabulous, love the pastel hues and all the gorgeous elements. And I found the perfect photo!

I just could not resist …. how cute is this? I have used bits from the collectables, the 6″x6″ paper pad, the stickers and the curios.

I have used the P2843 “Measured” paper as my background, and then used papers from the 6½”x6½” paper pad to arrange the matting, as well as the P2839 Decoupage paper. I have also used some of the die cuts at the back as part of the layering. I have done some fussy cutting to add the flowers and the extra leaves from P2841 “Back Stitch” paper. The rulers are all from the papers also in the paper pad. I have added a curios and some of the collectables to make up the cluster.

I have created a banner from the sticker book and added this to the corner. I have also inked the edges to make the banner pop.

I have then finished off by add the cut off strip from the P2843 paper. (To add – check out the whole collection – there are so many cool sayings on the strips of this collection!)

These are the products I have used – which can be found at Kaisercraft shop collections

Happy creating!

Merry Christmas with Under the Gum Tree

Hello Kaisercraft fans!

What a wonderful way to show off your Christmas memories with this fabulous range “Under the Gum Tree” – I just loved the elements and here is my layout I created with this gorgeous range

Of course I was in my element – as I just love fussy cutting, so I found this range just perfect for just that, including being able to add bits from the sticker book and the collectables – perfect way to to layer all these fabulous elements.

The background paper is the reverse side of the P2836 Wattle. I have added some splatters of Gold Shimmer Mist spray on the page. The strips at the top and bottom of the page have been cut from the P2831 Bottle Brush paper.

I have used leaves and acorns from the collectables, as well as fussy cutting P2829 Protea – this also includes cutting some of the protea’s out and layering these between the leaves. The pine cones can be found in the sticker book. Pine cones have been bent to give it the rounded effect to resemble a pine cone and adhere with foam tape.

I have finished off adding a bit to the top right hand corner of the photo also. The title is from the sticker book – which I have cut up and layered. Merry Christmas from our family to yours

Products used: P2829 Protea, P2831 Bottle Brush, P2835 Native Tree, P2836 Wattle, SK817 Sticker book, CT971 Collectables, KM132 Gold Shimmer Kaiser Mist

Mini Album – Merry Christmas

Hello Kaisercraft friends!

This has to be one of the cutest of animated Christmas ranges – the reindeer, the nutcrackers, the trees and pressies – and I thought a mini album would be prefect!

Products used: Paper: P2811 ‘Fun & Festive’, P2813 ‘Wrapped up’, P2814 ‘Holly Jolly’, P2815 ‘Combi Christmas’, P2816 ‘Minty’, P2819 ‘Under the Tree’, SK815 Sticker Book, PP1075 6″ x6″ paper pad, CT969 Collectables, FL656 Flourishes, weaved cardstock “Thyme”, weaved cardstock “Crimson”

The mini album is made with 6 chipboard pages measure 6″x 6″. This was perfect as I was able to cover each pages using paper from the 6″x 6″ paper pad, and all I had to do was corner punch the edges. I created a shaker box for the front cover with the reindeer, presents stickers and collectables, and used the Merry Christmas from the Sticker book. The frame is decorated with flourishes and poinsettias from the collectables.

Each page has been decorated using collectables, die cuts from the 6″x 6″ paper pad and the sticker book.

I have created a waterfall on one the pages and decorated the feature page with collectables and stickers. Each inside page has been covered with papers, and some words from the sticker book. I have closed the waterfall using magnets as a closure.

Here is another picture of some of the pages. The left page is covered with paper, then adding smaller 5″x 5″ paper to that to form the matt for a photo. The flower cluster is from the sticker book, adhered with foam so a photo can fit underneath. The wording is from the sticker book.The right page is an envelope feature that opens into a trifold booklet for adding extra photos. The “Under the Tree” is a tab from the sticker book, as are the words.

There are some lovely quotes in this collection, and I have used one of them here – I love this quote!
