Products Used: P2930 x 2 Sweet Dreams|P2933 x 1 Baby Steps|P2932 x 2 Cuddles|CT982 Little Treasures Collectables|CD301 Snow Kaiser Card
Other Products Used: Coordinating cotton|Gold Rhinestones
These are such beautiful papers to work with, I love layering up my base for my layout and add some colour coordinating stitching.
I layered my photo of Merley onto a centre circle of snow Kaiser Card and made a frill around the edge.
These papers were great for fussy cutting, I had so much fun and it is very relaxing, I did have to use more than one of the same paper, but think it was worth it.
I also like to layer up the fussy cut elements to give height.
I use foam pads in between all the layers – to finish I added a little gold bling to the centres of the flowers.
Hi Everyone, today I am sharing with you a layout I’ve created using the stunning – Sunkissed collection – this range features tropical flowers & exotic wildlife, be inspired & capture your favourite memories.

After fussy cutting loads of flowers & leaves from the Gum Leaves, flowering and Banksia Bouquet papers, I then made my base I also hand stitched in two coordinating colours and added my photo.
I then started to arrange all those beautiful fussy cut embellishments around my photo, in the bottom right hand corner.
…..and top left hand corner. To give height I added foam pads to some of the flowers, I also like to curl them, I think this adds extra interest and dimension
I love this photo of my daughter, she always had so much fun on her trampoline, we captured this lovely image of her in mid air. Even though this is an Australian themed collection, I think it can be used with all sorts of photo’s.
To finish off my layout I dotted about some fun words
I hope I have inspired you to use this beautiful collection……it works with all sorts of photo’s. I look forward to seeing your creations over on Kaiser Corner.
Hi Everyone, today on the blog I am sharing with you a layout I’ve created using the beautiful Lily & Moss Collection – the range features pretty pinks & greens and a variety of textures with an artistic feel.

Once all the base layers were cut to size and matted together I then start to fussy cut all the beautiful flowers and butterflies. If you don’t have enough from the papers, check out the sticker book & collectable packs – I stuck the stickers onto paper then fussy cut around them – I also cut the white edges from the collectables.
I also fussy cut the frames from the P2891 Circular paper, hand stitched around them and layered these onto the base papers
There are so many beautiful flowers in this collection and along with the Lily Decorative Die, I arranged these around my black and white photo.
To give some height to the flowers and embellishments I use foam pads
I love the P2888 Whirl paper, it looks great behind the frames and the stitching & black butterflies finish off the layout.
I hope I have inspired you to use this beautiful collection and look forward to seeing your creations over on Kaisercraft Corner – you can also purchase the Lily & Moss collection here

Hi Everyone, welcome to Challenge Corner No: #14 – Stitching!!! I don’t know if you have noticed but I love stitching on my projects, especially my layouts, you can colour match the threads to your beautiful papers and I also find it very relaxing. The “Oh Happy Day’ is a fabulous collection for adding stitching with all those pretty bright coloured papers, so I used some bright red thread which stands out on the beautiful blue paper. So come on, show me your projects with some added stitching, it can be hand stitching or machine. I am so looking forward to seeing your lovely stitched creations.

As this collection is about celebration and parties I wanted to create a fun, bright explosion of colour on my layout, my photo was taken at my daughters Birthday party, she was having so much fun, she didn’t see us snapping away, I love her expression!!!!
The coordinating stamp set is just so much fun, I’m not sure what you call them, but stamped and fussy cut the little flower type stamp on some of the Kaiser card, they made great centres to the Doily Die cut outs and I also added some around my layout to give little pops/explosions of colour.

Hi Everyone, Chrissy here with my first project for December using the gorgeous & exotic “Grand Bazaar” collection. I love the bright rich colours in this collection and the flowers on the “Boho Paisley” paper were just perfect for fussy cutting.
Kaisercraft Products Used: Grand Bazaar – P2866 Folklore|P2867 Ceramic Tiles x3|P2868 Boho Paisley x 2|FL662 Flourish Pack|
Other Products Used:SB793 Black Pearls|CD324 Crimson Kaisercard|Red Thread for sewing
I used the Crimson Kaisercard for my base, I love adding coordinating card stock as a frame for my layouts. On top of this I matted the reverse side of the “Folklore” paper and added bright red hand stitching. On top of this I matted the mustard side of the “Ceramic Tiles” paper (with more stitching) I fussy cut all the tiles from another piece of the “Ceramic Tiles” paper.
I picked out the tiles from the paper with mainly the dark blues & reds on them. The Wooden flourishes make great titles, I coloured the “Thankful for you” Flourish using black and yellow ink pads.
I fussy cut the flowers from the “Boho Paisley” paper and arranged them around my photo, I love the detail on these flowers
This layout has lots of height, I love using foam pads to some of the fussy cut flowers to achieve this. I also like to curl and shape them.
I loved using this beautiful collection and hope i have inspired you to have a play – and look forward to seeing your creations using it over on Kaiser Corner.

I love the feminine feel and delicate florals in this this beautiful collection and the combination of dainty pinks and green – and isn’t the “Rose” paper just gorgeous, perfect for fussy cutting. I had a photo in mind for my layout, my daughter & I attended a Peaky Blinders festival, I am so proud of her as she completely re-designed an over sized vintage mens outfit to fit herself.

Other Products Used: DMC Green Thread|Black Ink Pad
I started to assemble the base of my layout using Elsie & Jessica papers and Tutu Kaisercard.
I love stitching on my layouts and projects, so after punching along two edges of the Jessica and Tutu Kaisercard I then stitched along the punched edges.
The coordinating stamp set is just so beautiful, I love the lace borders so stamped, fussy cut and stitched along the edges then added these to the layout.
How relaxing is fussy cutting, I couldn’t resist fussy cutting all those beautiful flowers from the two Rose papers.
I arranged all the beautiful fussy cut Roses around my photo, in the top right hand corner.
……….and bottom left hand corner.
I used foam pads to give some height and dimension
……and stamped and fussy cut the pretty little butterflies from the coordinating stamp set to add extra interest

Hi Everyone, Chrissy here with a layout I’ve created using the fabulous “Crafternoon” collection. Oh yes…a collection about crafting!!! I love all the little fun crafty sentiments and imagery. So for my layout I decided to use a black & white photo of my craft room.
Products used: Crafternoon Collection: P2838 Handmade|P2841 Back Stitch|P2842 Crafty|P2843 Measured|P2845 DIY|P2846 Cut & Paste|FL659 Crafternoon Flourish Pack|SB777 Black Rhinestones
Other products: DMC thread|Butterfly punch
For this layout I decided to pick out a couple of colours from the collection, I just love the minty green and yellow papers then added a splash of black with some of the sentiments and painted wood flourishes – and thought a black and white photo would work perfectly.
How cute are these teeny tiny images of paint tubes, brushes and that manakin – these were fussy cut from the Handmade paper. I painted the Wooden flourish buttons black and added yellow coordinating thread to them.
I fussy cut all the beautiful flowers and leaves from the Back Stitch paper and the Making Memories hoop from the DIY paper. I have tried to add things and items to my layout that captures my love of scrapbooking – the tiny needle represents my passion of stitching on layouts, the little black scissors below for my other passion – fussy cutting.
More fussy cut flowers – next to the tiny Wooden Flourish scissors, which I also painted black
I have throughly enjoyed using this fabulous crafty collection and hope I have inspired you to create with it and I look forward to seeing those creations over on the Kaisercraft Corner facebook/ page. You can also find all these lovely Kaiser goodies over on the website.
Hi Everyone, Chrissy here with the first of my October projects. Today I am sharing with you a layout I’ve created using the fabulous Under the Gum Leaves Kaisercraft collection – I just love this striking collection it is filled with beautiful Australian flora & fauna.
Kaisercraft Products: Under the Gum Leaves: P2829 Protea|P2831Bottle Brush|P2832 Gum Leaves|P2833 Fauna|P2836 Wattle|KM132 Gold Shimmer Kaisermist
Other Products: Edge punch|Red DMC Thread
I decided to focus on using the papers with all the beautiful flora on them, I had a photo in mind of my daughter and her friends, the colours matched perfectly. So I set about fussy cutting all the flowers and leaves from the Protea & Wattle papers.
I used a number of papers to make my base – Protea (reverse), Bottle Brush & Fauna. I added a couple of punched strips top and bottom and some colour coordinating stitching. I love stitching on my layouts to add that little extra interest.
I love the Gold Shimmer Kaisermist – it goes beautifully with the colours in this collection, so used it on the base of my layout.
I added my photo to the centre of the layout then started to arrange all the fussy cut elements around it.
I added foam pads to some to give height and dimension.
This collection is so versatile it can also be used for your non Christmas layouts and projects – like mine. You can find this fabulous collection over on the Kaisercraft website: https://www.kaisercraft.com.au/
I look forward to seeing your creations over on the Kaiser Corner facebook page
