Hello everyone! I hope that you are safe and well. Today I am sharing my layout which features products and papers from Kaisercraft’s Fallen Leaves Collection. In my layout, I wanted to explore some mixed media techniques for my background and to add some different textures.

I used some torn papers from the collection to add some interest and used a thin layer of white gesso as a base before adding some distress oxide inks.

I also used Kaisercraft a script stamp and stencil to add more texture as well. My paper blooms that I selected compliment the colours in my photo.

Fallen Leaves | Blessed Scrapbook Layout

Hello, Kaisercraft friends! It’s Donna here with you today sharing my take on the newest Kaisercraft collection, Fallen Leaves.

I made a simple layout with a bit of mixed media background using some watercolor splashes. I chose colors that coordinate with the Fallen Leaves color palette. Then I also splattered some gold mist and let it dry on its own so it won’t lose it’s natural sheen/sparkle.

Kaisercraft Products: FALLEN LEAVES Collection: CT981 Collectables | PP1087 Paper Pad | FL668 Flourishes | CD301 White Cardstock | CS381 Clear Stamp | F628 Honey | KM132 Gold Mist | IP750 Chestnut | IP751 Chocolate

Other: Watercolors | Thread

I used several papers from the 6.5 paper pad to add some layers as well as the shaped borders that you can also find in the same paper pad.

I adhered the photo on top of the layered papers and I used some foam tape to mount it for added dimension.

I further embellished with flowers, wood flourishes and collectables.

I love that it is simple yet with texture and dimension because of the watercolor splashes and the layers of papers and clusters of embellishments, respectively.

Have a happy crafty day!

You Make Life More Beautiful – Lady Like Collection

Hello, Donna here with my take on the Lady Like collection. I love this collection with its soft color palette of pink, blues, greys, and greens as well as the designs and patterns especially, yes you guessed right, the floral ones.

You can download the PDF instruction HERE or click the main image above.

PRODUCTS USED:
PAPERS: LADY LIKE Collection: P2874 Rose, P2880 Mabel, P2882 Evelyn
KC PRODUCTS: PP1080 Paper Pad, SK820 Sticker Book, CR220 Curios, FL661 Flourish Pack, CT974 Collectables, CS374 Clear stamps, CS360 Tiny Dot Texture Stamp, IP751 Chocolate Dye Ink Pad, IP740 Cotton Candy Ink Pad, KM132 Gold Kaiser Mist, IT501 Tiny Triangles Designer Template, EM405 Doily, T315 Double-Sided Tape, T303 Foam Tape, T321 Acid-Free Craft Glue
Other: Molding Paste, Hemp Twine

I created a simple mixed media background by using some stencil and molding paste as well as stamping and some distressing to add a bit of texture to the layout.

This banner is one of my favorite parts of this layout. I used the pennants from the sticker book and some hemp twine and I have a beautiful banner! I adhered the pennants in place to secure it properly though even though they’re stickers.

I also like trimming down some word art strips like the ones I used here. I do this when I didn’t one the word art strip/s to overwhelm the overall look of the layout. I also like snipping the edges either a simple slanted trim or some triangles to create a “banner-like” look.

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

That’s all from me today and I hope you liked my layout as much as I do.
Thank you for dropping by and see you in my next post.

OTHER: Hessian, Modelling Paste, Cardboard

Hello!! It’s Lisa here today with some peachy inspiration for you. The Unchartered Waters collection is perfect for photos of your beachy days. Chock full of nautical elements.

I have started my page with the Streak paper as my base.
I have then layered torn strips pf the patterned papers onto my base.

I have then used the Bubbles Template and modelling paste to randomly stencil over my page.
I have then splattered some Navy Kaiser Mist.

Distressing some strips from the Sticker Book and hessian to layer over my page.
Add in some collectables.

Next I have added my photo and some more of the collectables,
layered with stickers and a wood flourish.

In my layers I have added a Curio and word stickers.

To finish I have used a quote from the cut off strip,
matted and adhered to the bottom of the page.

I had a lot of fun with this collection, I love the colours and elements.
I hope that you like what I have created.
You can find the full instructions for this layout HERE.

Until next time!
Lisa

PRODUCTS USED:PAPERS: UNCHARTERED WATERS Collection: P2854 Pelagic
KAISERCRAFT PRODUCTS: PP1079 Paper Pad, SK819 Sticker Book, CR219 Curios, CS373 Clear Stamps, FL660 Flourish Pack, CT973 Collectables, IT498 Designer Template – Bubbles, DD482 Decorative Die Textured Netting, IP747 Ink Pad – Denim, T303 Foam Tape, T321 Acid-Free Craft Glue
 
Other: Molding Paste

I added some texture first using the PELAGIC paper (reverse) as the background, with stencil and molding paste.

I also loved how the Texture Netting decorative die added to the mixed media background as well as to the clusters and layers of papers, flourishes and die cuts under and around the photo.

I kept the wood flourishes as is to mix with the color palette of the collection. Then I stamped in random places using the clear stamp and Denim ink pad.
I have a tip for you as well, don’t throw away the paper product strips, you can use it like I did here, to add some wonderful word arts to your layout.

That’s all from me today. I hope you liked my layout as much as I do.

Thank you for dropping by!

Happy crafting,

Beach Days …..

Good morning how are you? What do you think of this months NEW Collections? They are amazing. I am kicking off the month with Uncharted Waters IN STORE NOW.

So to help you get started I have a Process Video here and a downloadable PDF file here

Now if you want to see how the flowers where made you can follow the link here and see how to create your very own Art Foam Flowers.


PRODUCTS USED:  
PAPERS: UNCHARTERED WATERS Collection: P2854 Pelagic, PP1079, CT973 Collectables,

KC PRODUCTS: Art Foam, DD651 Captains Wheel Decorative Die, Decorative Die – 3D Layered Peony, LDB1056 Foam Tape, F627 White Paper Blooms.
 
Other: Paper Clay, Art Stones, Diamond Dust, Copic Ciao Markers.

So to start off I would spend the time making the flowers and setting them aside it can be a little bit labour intensive but you could just make them all with Kaiser Art Foam white and colour when needed for all your layouts. I used the Kaisercraft 3d layered

Peony die. I used some rhinestones and some stamen centers.

Another thing to point out is I used paper clay in a mold to create my shells so thats another thing to do ahead of time as its takes roughly 24 hrs to dry. They are very lightweight and work considering as an option when creating this style of layout.

If you dont have it is ok try real shells …..


To finish off the layout its all about all the bumpy, lumpy things like art stones, sand, prills and something sparkly drew drops, diamond dust, glass shards……

So till next time have a creative day…….

Technique Tuesday – Mixed Media Rusty Cogs

Hello Chrissy here with another Technique Tuesday. Today I am sharing with you how I created some Mixed Media cogs using the Kaisercraft Wooden Flourish pack Workshop, ink pads and paint. 

Workshop Collection: P2793 Tough|P2797 Gallant|P2799 Strapping|P2800 Handsome|P2801 Chivalrous|CT967 Workshop Collectables|FL654 Flourish Pack

Other: SB792 Chocolate Pearls|KC048 Mud Puddle Acrylic Paint|IP756 Ink Pad Gold Pigment|IP755 Ink Pad Silver Pigment|IP719 Black Mini Ink Pad|IP723 Vintage Mini Ink Pad|DD448 Cogs Panel Decorative Die|CD606 Navy Card Stock|KM129 Navy KAISERmist|KM132 Gold Shimmer KAISERmist

Other: Texture Paste|Crystal Lacquer

I started off by painting all the Wood Flourish Cogs in Mud Puddle paint, it doesn’t have to be precise, it is like an undercoat. Next I lightly dabbed on random bits of texture paste, then left to dry for a few mins. The next bit is fun, adding layers of ink using the Silver, Black & Vintage ink pads, lastly adding the Gold ink pad on top. 

I also die cut some cogs from the Navy Kaiser card and used the same process without the texture paste.

Now to create the rest of the layout, I started off by building up my base using navy card and a selection of the Workshop papers.


I LOVE stitching on my layouts, so added some extra interest by hand stitching along the length of some of the papers. Then started to build up my layout by adding layers around my photo.

I’ve added the cogs around my photo, adding foam pads to some to give height and dimension.

I have had a typewriter sat on my desk for a very long time and have never really used it, I decided to type some of the lovely sayings from the collection onto a strip of paper and added that to my layout. 


To finish off my layout I have added a few tiny metal embellishments and pearls to the centre of my cogs. I hope this has inspired you to have ago at Mixed Media cogs, this was my first time, it was fun so I will be doing it again very soon. 

xXx Happy crafting – Chrissy T xXx

Something for the Boys!

Hello all! It’s Lisa here today to share my latest creation with you.
This month we have some gorgeous collections for you,
including the Workshop collection, perfect for the boys in your life.

PAPERS: WORKSHOP Collection: P2793 Tough, P2794 Dashing, P2798 Courageous
KC PRODUCTS: CT967 Collectables, SK813 Sticker Book, CR213 Curios, IT494 Linear Lines Template, CS364 Clear Stamp Set, DD3316 Texture Subway Decorative Die, CD606 Navy Cardstock, Ink Pads IP747 Denim, IP757 Black, IP744 Blue Haze 
OTHER: Cardboard, Modelling Paste. 

I have fallen in love!
With the Template, the Clear Stamps, the colours and elements,
well just all of it!

I do love a bit of grunge!!
This collection has it all. I have started with Dashing (reverse) as my base page.
I have then used the Linear Lines Template and modelling paste,
to make this background my own.

I have then started stamping with a few different inks,
and then I started to build up my page, using rulers and cogs.

I have also used the Subway Texture Decorative Die. I have die-cut these from both navy and white card stock. I have added these into my layers as I build them up.

As I am building I adhere more of the rulers,
more of the subway die-cuts and cogs.

I have used both foam tape and cardboard to add dimension to my layout.

I have then added some of the word stickers from the Sticker Book, sentiment tag from the Collectables and a Curio to finish.

I quite like how this one turned out. Perfect for my boys and their shenanigans 🙂
You can find the full instructions for this layout HERE.

Until next time!
