Hope, Joy, Love | Native Noel

Hello, Kaisercraft friends. It’s Donna here once again with new inspiration and this time I used the Native Noel collection.

Kaisercraft Products: Native Noel Collection: Holly | Koala | Gingham | Red Foliage | Acetate Specialty | Chipboard | Collectables | Hessian Trimming | SB795 Red | LDB1056 Foam Tape
Other: White Doily, White Acrylic Paint, Border punch, Glue gun/stick

I love the accents I made here like the decorative borders and splatters of white acrylic paint.

One of my favorites in this layout is this bow! I love that there is an option like this in the new collection.

The scatter of red pearls also accentuated the whole layout. Adding the black acetate specialty to the mix of red, green, cream, and kraft made the colors pop a bit more.

Using foam tape gave the whole layout a dimensional feel without being too bulky. I love using Kaisercraft’s thin double-sided tape for this purpose. It’s my go-to foam tape!

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.

“Blessed” Lily & Moss Scrapbook Layout

Hello, everyone. It’s Donna here with my layout using the Lily & Moss collection.

Download the PDF instruction HERE or click the main image above.

PRODUCTS USED: PAPERS: LILY AND MOSS Collection: P2883 Pink Plaster, P2886 Flicker
KAISERCRAFT PRODUCTS:
PP1083 Paper Pad, SK823 Sticker Book, FL664 Flourish Pack, CT977 Collectables, IP724 Bark, EM405 Doily, T315 Double-Sided Tape, T303 Foam Tape, T321 Acid-Free Craft Glue
Other: White embroidery thread

I was inspired by this paper, Pink Plaster, in the collection and I knew I wanted to use it in my project. To highlight the tile patterns a bit more, I got the smaller patterns from the 6.5 paper pad and I fussy cut them one by one then adhered/placed them in an overlapping way.

I used tons of the flowers in the Collectables pack as well as some pieces from the 6.5 paper pad and Sticker book. Foam tape can add height to some of the flat embellishments creating depth or dimension.

I hope you liked my layout today. Thank you for dropping by and see you all in my next post!

Blessed | Grand Bazaar Scrapbook Layout

Hello! It’s Donna here again with my take on the Grand Bazaar collection.

I made a scrapbook layout with white cardstock as a background to showcase the beautiful color palette of this collection.

Download the PDF instruction HERE or click the main image above.

PRODUCTS USED: PAPERS: GRAND BAZAAR Collection: P2871 Persian Rug
KAISERCRAFT PRODUCTS: PP1081 Paper pad, SK821 Sticker book, CR221 Curios, CT975 Collectables, FL662 Flourish Pack, KM132 Kaiser Mist Gold, CD601 White, EM405 Doily, T315 Double-Sided Tape, T303 Foam Tape, T321 Acid-Free Craft Glue,
Other: White embroidery thread, sequins

I love this particular paper in the collection, PERSIAN RUG. I fussy cut just the center and cut it in half and adhered to the right and left side of the layout. This will be the starting point of the diagonal design of the layout.

I placed the feathers from the Collectables pack going down diagonally towards the lower left side of the layout to create movement.

I used thin foam tape to create a subtle dimension to some of the embellishments especially the stickers and Collectables. The gold Kaiser mist and as well as the scatters of sequins all over the layout added a bit of texture. Then I just simply added a few lines of journaling to complete the layout.

That’s all from me today and I hope you liked my layout using the Grand Bazaar collection. Do leave your comments or questions, I love reading your comments.

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.

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.

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
