Under the Tree – with Peppermint Kisses

Hi Everyone,
Chrissy here today sharing my second project for September, featuring the lovely Peppermint Kisses Kaisercraft collection. I love the playful imagery in this collection so decided to use a photo of my daughter when she was younger, she always had to sit under the tree and have her photo taken with her toys.

KAISERCRAFT PRODUCTS: KM124 Red Kaisermist|KM132 Gold Kaisermist|IP738 Lipstick Ink Pad|SB795 Red Pearls|CD301 Snow Kaisercard

OTHER: Red DMC thread

I created my base using snow Kaisercard, Minty, Ho Ho Ho & Under the Tree papers. I have also added some splashes of red & gold Kaisermist.

Of course I had to do some stitching, so before matting them all together I added this along the lengths of some of the strips with bright red thread.

Now for my favourite part – fussy cutting all the cute embellishments to decorate my layout with. I fussy cut all the pink & red poinsettias from the Fun & Festive, Ho Ho Ho and Santa & Co papers and fussy cut the very cute Nut Crackers and Reindeer.

I then layered up the poinsettias to give some dimension.

After adding my photo to the centre of my layout I then start to arrange all the fussy cut elements around it.

I like to add foam pads to some of the elements to give that little extra height and dimension.

To finish off I have added a title using one of the sayings from the papers and added some red pearls to the centres of the poinsettias .

This Christmas collection is just the cutest and I hope I have inspired you to use it.

Technique Tuesday – Clusters and Layers

Hello, Donna here with this week’s Technique Tuesday post. Today, I am showing you how to create a scrapbook layout with layers and clusters without adding too much bulk.

PDF instructions can be downloaded HERE or by clicking the main image above.

KAISERCRAFT PRODUCT USED: PEPPERMINT KISSES Collection: P2817  Santa & Co., P2819 Under The Tree, SK815 Sticker book, PP1075 Paper Pad, CT969 Collectables, CR215 Curios, FL656 Flourish Pack, KM132 Gold Shimmer, IT495 Scattered Stars, EM405 Doily, T315 Double-Sided Tape, T303 Foam Tape, T321 Acid-Free Craft Glue
OTHER: Molding Paste, Pink Embroidery Thread

Use SANTA & Co. (Reverse) as the background for this layout. Cut UNDER THE TREE, trimming the bottom and left side part and adhere to the background as seen in the image (set aside the leftover for later). Use Scattered Starts template and molding paste to add texture. Slightly fold the edges of UNDER THE TREE


Get another piece of SANTA & Co. paper and fussy cut the patterns. Do the same with the patterns from UNDER THE TREE paper left over from the previous one.

Adhere the fussy cut trees and some Collectables to the top left part. Then add a white doily and pink embroidery thread. Place the photo using foam tape for a bit of dimension. Start embellishing with stickers and border pieces from the paper pad.

Continue embellishing the layout up to the bottom part until you’re satisfied with the layers and clusters. For the final touch, add some splatter of gold using the Gold Shimmer Kaiser Mist. Then the layout is done!

And here is the finished layout

Thanks for dropping by and I hope this inspired you to be creative today.

Happy crafting,

Peppermint Kisses – Advent Box

Hi Everyone,

Chrissy here today with a Peppermint Kisses project – this collection is so pretty and playful so I decided to use it on the brand new Christmas Advent box.

Kaisercraft Products:  Peppermint Kisses Collection|P2811 Fun & Festive|P2813 Wrapped Up|P2814 Holy Jolly|P2816 Minty|P2817 Santa & Co|P2818 Ho Ho Ho|PP1075 6.5 x 6.5 Paper Pad|CT969 Collectables|

Other Kaisercraft Products: SB2510 Christmas Advent Box|SB795 Red Pearls|SB794 Snow Pearls|AS261 Number Stickers White|KC001 Kaisercolour Paint White.

When ever I make up a Beyond the Page project, especially a storage item with lots of parts, I like to do a dry run of putting it together first, as I don’t want to be fussing about wondering where all the parts go once it has been painted & papered.

I would usually paint any edges and paper any parts before putting it all back together. But this time (as I wanted the paper to cover the joins I decided to put the main parts back together again minus the little dividers and paint it like that. I used white paint so it did need a few coats.

I then painted the little dividers (above) but left the little bits that slot into the Advent unpainted, if you paint these they will be to tight to slot into the holes.

I chose to use double sided tape to assemble the little drawers, then to cover each drawer I cut a strip of paper the same height as the drawer and long enough to wrap around three sides plus a few millimetres etc at each side of the front.

To cut the finger hole into the square piece of paper for the front of the drawers, I used the drawer as a template and marked the shape of the finger hole before cutting it out

Once all the little drawers were covered with my chosen papers I slotted them into place and once I was happy with their position I added the numbers.

I covered the top and sides of the Advent with the holy jolly paper and covered the back of the advent aperture with the spotty paper from the paper pad and fussy cut all the fun images from the Santa & Co & Fun & Festive papers, then arranged them in the centre of the advent, I used lots of foam pads to give height and dimension.

To finish off I added pearls to the little drawers and distressed the edges of them, I wanted to give them a kinda snowy effect.

I hope I have inspired you to create a Christmas Advent Calendar – this item would look fabulous decorated with any of Kaisercraft’s Christmas collections.
You can find all the products over on the Kaisercraft website: https://www.kaisercraft.com.au/

Happy crafting!!! See you again soon.
