Fallen Leaves – Treasure the day

Hi everyone, It’s Chrissy here with you today sharing my latest layout using the gorgeous “Fallen Leaves” Kaisercraft collection – this range features beautiful patterns & leaves in a rich, earthy colour palette of golds, greens and browns.

Kaisercraft Products Fallen Leaves collection: P2919 Crunchy x 2|P2921 Cosy Corner x 2|P2923 Warm Breeze|P2926 Morning Dew x 2|CS381 Clear Stamp|PP1087 6.5 x 6.5 Paper Pad|CT 981 Collectables Set.

Other Products: Gold DMC Thread|Acetate Sheet

I started by using the dark green side of one of the Cosy Corner papers as my base, just to give that green edge to my layout. I then layered on the morning Dew paper and then at an angle another Cosy Corner paper.

I stitched a border around the second shaped dark green paper, then layered this on top.

I fussy cut lots of the leaves from the other papers & paper pad, I also used the leaf in the stamp set, stamped over the big gold leaves then fussy cut them out

I then layered up all the leaves, some in the bottom lefthand corner of my photo

………and layered them in the top right hand corner of my photo

I like to build up my clusters, i use foam pads to do this, which then gives it height and dimension

I love building up height and dimension on my layouts – shape your clusters and use foam pads to get this look.

Thank you for stopping by, you can find this beautiful collection over on the Kaisercraft website https://www.kaisercraft.com.au/

Happy Scrapping!!!! Chrissy Tingey

Dream Big – Little Treasures

Hi Everyone, it is nice to be back with a post and inspiration using this gorgeous collection – “Little Treasures” which features balloons and bunnies in wonderful pastel colours, just perfect for your precious baby photo’s.

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.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you have been inspired by my layout. you can find the Instructions here.

I look forward to seeing your creations using this beautiful collection over on the Kaisercraft Corner Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/groups/kaisercraftcorner/

Sunkissed – So beautiful

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.

Products Used: Sunkissed – P2901 Pina Colada|P2902 Coconut|P2908 Tutti Frutti

Kaisercraft Products: CD301 Snow Kaisercard|CS379 Sunkissed Stamp set|CS372 Paint Splatter Background Stamp|SB793 Black Pearls|

Other Products: Pink DMC thread, Punch Around the Page set.

I decided to focus on using all the gorgeous pink & red flowers from the collection – I wanted to show that even though the collection is tropical themed, you don’t necessarily need photo’s to match.

Pink is my favourite colour and these flowers are just gorgeous. My layout is based around the central heart design with the gorgeous fussy cut flowers arranged & layered up around my two photo’s.

I have also used the fabulous Paint Splatter background stamp to add extra interest – and framed the base of the layout and the centre heart with colour coordinating stitching and punched edges.

The coordinating stamp set is beautiful, I stamped and fussy cut some of, one of the pretty butterflies and arranged them around my layout.

To finish off my layout I added the die-cut word – Beautiful

I hope I have inspired you to use this beautiful collection……it can work with all sorts of photo’s, not just your holiday snaps. I look forward to seeing your creations over on Kaiser Corner.

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.

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

Challenge #14 – Stitching

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.

Grand Bazaar – Thankful for you

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 BazaarP2866 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.

Lady Like – So Talented

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.

Kaisercraft Products Used: P2874 Rose|P2876 Jessica|P2877 Elsie|P2878 Delores|P2879 Gertrude|CD331 Tutu Kaisercard|CS374 Clear Stamp Lady Like|SB777 Black Rhinestones

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

My Crafty Space – Crafternoon

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.

Happy scrapping!!!
