The Greatest of Gifts

Hello, Kaisercraft fans!
It’s Lisa here today to share some Under the Gum Leaves inspiration!
When I received this collection I loved the gorgeous florals but I really wanted to create a layout not using a Christmas theme, this collection worked beautifully.

I have started by using Wild Flora as my base page. I have then cut, torn and distressed some of the other patterned papers to layer in the centre of my page.

I have then used pieces of the Burlap Stack to tuck into my paper layers,
with some floral elements.

I have then matted my photos on paper from the Paper Pad
and adhered them to my layout.

I have then built up some floral clusters for the corners of my photos,
using fussy cut elements and some of the Collectables.

I have then added a title and a Curio to my layout.

I have layered my matted title strip with a Collectable heart.

I hope that you like what I have created and that it inspires you to play today.
You can find the full instructions for this layout HERE.

Is there a themed collection that you like to use for something other than what is expected?
I would love to see if you have, please share in our Facebook Group – Kaisercaft Corner.
You may be featured in our next collection look book.

Until next time!

You can find the Under the Gum Leaves Collection in stock now at your local stockist,
or online at Kaisercraft.

Merry Christmas with Under the Gum Tree

Hello Kaisercraft fans!

What a wonderful way to show off your Christmas memories with this fabulous range “Under the Gum Tree” – I just loved the elements and here is my layout I created with this gorgeous range

Of course I was in my element – as I just love fussy cutting, so I found this range just perfect for just that, including being able to add bits from the sticker book and the collectables – perfect way to to layer all these fabulous elements.

The background paper is the reverse side of the P2836 Wattle. I have added some splatters of Gold Shimmer Mist spray on the page. The strips at the top and bottom of the page have been cut from the P2831 Bottle Brush paper.

I have used leaves and acorns from the collectables, as well as fussy cutting P2829 Protea – this also includes cutting some of the protea’s out and layering these between the leaves. The pine cones can be found in the sticker book. Pine cones have been bent to give it the rounded effect to resemble a pine cone and adhere with foam tape.

I have finished off adding a bit to the top right hand corner of the photo also. The title is from the sticker book – which I have cut up and layered. Merry Christmas from our family to yours

Friendship – Under the Gum Leaves

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:

I look forward to seeing your creations over on the Kaiser Corner facebook page

Happy Crafting!!!
