You are my Sunshine with Sunkissed by Kaisercraft

Hello crafty friends,

Today I would like to share with you a very vibrant yellow and black themed layout that I created using the SUNKISSED Collection by Kaisercraft. This yellow, pineapple patterned paper really caught my attention from this collection, I just had to create something quick and fun with it. This layout could be created with many fun photos but I decided to choose a beach themed one to get into the summer feel, as the weather is warming up for us here in the Northern Hemisphere.MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-You are my Sunshine- Picture1

To create this layout I followed the steps below:

  1. Trim PINA COLADA – SUNKISSED COLLECTION to 29 x 29 cm. Ink the edges using an ink blending tool and Black Soot-Oxide Ink or KAISERINK PAD – LICORICE.
  2. Take MINI BACKGROUND STAMP – SCREEN and adhere to an ACRYLIC STAMPING BLOCK. Because all Distress Inks are water based, they do not work well with any acrylic stamp unless the stamp is “dirty” or sanded lightly. To get a crisp image I first ink the stamp with a non water based ink and then directly on top I use the Oxide Ink. This is so the image is crisp but will run when water is added. Stamp along bottom and in the area where you plan to adhere matted photo.MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-You are my Sunshine- Picture2
  3. Apply Black Soot-Oxide Ink to an INKSSENTIALS CRAFT SHEET, spray water on top and place layout on top in areas you would like the spattered black ink. Repeat until happy with the effect.MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-You are my Sunshine- Picture3
  4. Trim KAISERCARD CANARY WEAVE CARDSTOCK to 30.5 x 30.5 cm and ink edges. Adhere PINA COLADA. Adhere a strip of KAISERCARD INK WEAVE CARDSTOCK (29 x 1.5 cm) to the centre of the the stamped strip. Adhere bottom strip from PINEAPPLE SOUR – SUNKISSED COLLECTION to the black strip with MOUNTING FOAM TAPE.MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-You are my Sunshine- Picture4
  5. Take the pineapple sheet from the PAPER PAD – SUNKISSED COLLECTION and use an ink blending tool and Distress Oxide- Black Soot to ink the whole sheet. Use a tissue or wet wipe to remove the ink from the glossy pineapples.
  6. Cut the pineapple sheet to 14.8 x 9.2 cm and frame photo (12.8 x 8.4 cm). Cut two squares from the pineapple paper 3.5 x 3.5 cm. Cut the squares in half diagonally but in opposite directions to always have the pineapples facing the right way.
  7. Cut KAISERCARD INK WEAVE CARDSTOCK to 15.6 x 10 cm and adhere to photo stack. Cut two 4 x 4 cm squares of INK and then diagonally. Adhere the pineapple triangles to the INK triangles and FOAM TAPE one to each corner of the layout.
  8. Take the black striped sheet from the PAPER PAD – SUNKISSED COLLECTION, ink edges and adhere to the middle of the mixed media area of your layout. FOAM TAPE the matted photo the striped sheet.MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-You are my Sunshine- Picture5
  9. Fussy cut the yellow flowers, white frangipanis, yellow butterflies and blue-green fronds from TUTTI FRUTTI – SUNKISSED COLLECTION, and its mini version in the PAPER PAD – SUNKISSED COLLECTION and PINA COLADA – SUNKISSED COLLECTION. Embellish layout with cut elements and COLLECTABLES – SUNKISSED COLLECTION.
  10. Splatter layout with KAISERMIST SPRAY INK – YELLOW 50ML. Further embellish with glass domes and a title- I have used a laser cut word that I have sprayed with KAISERMIST SPRAY INK – YELLOW 50ML and covered in Glossy Accents.MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-You are my Sunshine- Picture10 MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-You are my Sunshine- Picture9 MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-You are my Sunshine- Picture8 MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-You are my Sunshine- Picture7

Relax with Sunkissed

Hello, Karen here and I have to ask you “How gorgeous is this months Kaisercraft collection – Sunkissed“?  I think it is stunning with all it’s bright colours and beautiful tropical flowers, birds and flamingos.

Relax

I knew I had the perfect photo to showcase the flamingo theme and so built my page around that.

I started by cutting a 1 in frame from the Hibiscus weave cardstock.  Then cut the remaining piece to an 8 ins square and gutted a 1.5 in frame from this – you will be left with two frames and a 5 in square piece.

IMG_3325

Trim .75 in from the bottom and right of the Mojito paper  and add to the Hibiscus frame.

Cut a piece of Daiquiri paper to measure 5.5 ins from the bottom.  Lay, but do not stick 1 in from the bottom of your page.  Lay, but do not stick the 8 in Hibiscus frame on top of this, 2 ins from the bottom and 2 ins from the left.

IMG_3327

Mark with a pencil where it covers the flamingos and carefully cut the overlapped sections.

IMG_3328

You can now stick down the piece of Daiquiri  but don’t stick the parts you have trimmed as these are going over the 8 in Hibiscus frame.

Add a fussy cut spray of flowers cut from Pina Colada to the top left of your page, then add the 8 in Hibiscus frame 2 ins from the left and 2 ins from the bottom

Add another spring of flowers from Pina Colada to the top left of your page, overlapping the Hibiscus frame. To the centre of the Hibiscus frame add the green and white polka dot paper from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad then stick the flamingos over that.

Add the sheet of paper with flamingos and green stripes, also from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad,  to the bottom right of your page .75 from right and 1.5 from bottom.  Add the 5 in square of Hibiscus to the centre of this.

A third spring cut from Pina Colada  is added to the top right of your page.

IMG_3329

I added phrases from the Collectables pack to the top left of the green and white polka dot paper and a tab from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad.

IMG_3331

To finish I used ‘Relax’ and two flamingos , from the Collectables pack, at the bottom of my photograph.

IMG_3332

This page came together so easily and it turned out to be such a fun page with all those cute flamingos!

IMG_3334 IMG_3333 IMG_3335

Stay safe and I hope you can find time to do some crafting to take your mind of this crazy time we are in at the moment.

Virtual Crop Sketch – 4th April

Hello,

Karen here.  I hope you are all keeping safe and well and Roxanne and I are bringing you something a little different today.  We have each designed a sketch and then used each other’s sketch to produce a page.

sketches

I took inspiration for my sketch from this page, that I made last year.

91400223_10216774160490270_6766329973910274048_n

Hi everyone, I am hoping you are all staying safe and healthy- Roxanne here to show you what I created using Karens lovely sketch.

April 4th Sketch Challenge 2020 RS Picture1

I used the MORNING DEW collection by Kasiercraft for this challenge. I choose the stones (BREATHE – MORNING DEW COLLECTION) as the background because our dog, Pluto, loves to pick up stones and carry them around. I then couldn’t resist using the spotted page (INHALE – MORNING DEW COLLECTION) to compliment Pluto spots! When comparing my layout to Karen’s sketch I have added an extra border, moved the horizontal strip from the top to the bottom and I have still used three sets of flowers but the larger one is not clustered.

April 4th Sketch Challenge 2020 RS Picture2 April 4th Sketch Challenge 2020 RS Picture4 April 4th Sketch Challenge 2020 RS Picture5

To create these flowers, I have used the set of stamps from the Magenta Collection that we received at the Merly Impressions Retreat 2019. April 4th Sketch Challenge 2020 RS Picture3

Hi Roxanne here,

Below is a layout I created last year, so took inspiration from it to produce my sketch.

69653220_525521741527484_2912111135199068160_n

Below is the sketch that I came up with, it is somewhat simplified compare to the original layout but I think this makes it easier to move around.

90891601_4166888703336728_6579402208230506496_o

I then provided this sketch to Karen and she has created a beautiful layout using this sketch. I hope to see many other gorgeous layouts using this sketch over the next two weeks!

Karen here – I have used this sketch and Ladylike to make my page.  I turned her sketch a quarter turn to the left and used portrait photos rather than landscape ones.

As we said last week – you can interpret the sketch any way you wish.

Have fun!!!!!

Inspiration for Chrissy’s Virtual Crop Sketch March 28th

Hi Chrissy’s Crafty Challengers,

Karen and Roxanne from the Merly Impressions Design Team have some inspiration for this weeks sketch challenge! We have both had a go at this challenge and here is what we have created:

Karen – I have chosen this sketch from the two Chrissy posted and I have used the Native Breeze collection for this page.

91553402_10220583476204324_4031833599169789952_n

I was amazed how different this page looked to the others I made with this range, just goes to show how versatile Native Breeze is.

Super Star

As you can see I swapped out the hearts for stars and cut double the amount so that I could fold the top ones to give dimension.

Super Star detail 2

I also swapped out the two smaller photos for some journaling, not my handwriting but written with my Silhouette – I wish my handwriting was that neat.

Super Star detail 1

I am really excited to see your versions of this sketch – remember you can flip it, make elements larger or smaller – make your photo larger or smaller (as I have) and add or remove elements.  Just go for it and make it your own x

 

Roxanne- I decided to go with the sketch that has the large heart, see below. I choose this one because I have many “love” photo’s of me and my fiancé.

90851723_10220583476244325_1381129760041598976_n

Many years ago I bought a lot of the MINT WISHES Collection by Kaisercraft and carted it all the way to Germany with me. So I decided that it was the perfect opportunity to use it! I also found this snow photo that I absolutely adore and thought it suited perfectly. I have titled this layout “Snow Love”.

Picture1

I had been saving this stunning Uniquely Creative laser cut heart for the perfect project, which just happened to be this one! I have sprayed it with KAISERMIST SPRAY INK – WHITE 50ML to make it sparkle.Picture4I have used a large lace in the middle of my punched strip with some ribbon as the central strip from the sketch. 
Picture3

Amongst my stash I found many Die Cut leave and branch pieces, as well as this beautiful circle! I clustered these die cut pieces with the collectables in a similar place to on the sketch.   Picture2

I have also includes some white felt snowflakes and some blue-gray painted wooden snowflakes into my clusters for extra dimension.
Picture5

Finally, I have embellished with my favourite- RHINESTONES – SILVER.

We hope we have inspired you to have a go at this wonderful challenge ! As Karen said, you can stick strictly to a sketch or you can change it up as much as you like. We saw many gorgeous designs entered into last weeks challenge and hope to see just as many, if not more this week!

Stay home, stay safe and crafts lots!

Kookaburra with Native Breeze by Kaisercraft

Hello Crafty Friends,

Today I would like to share a very Ozzie themed layout with you. I have created it using the NATIVE BREEZE Collection by Kaisercraft. The main theme of my layout is the Australian native bird- the Kookaburra. This bird has a very distinctive call which sounds like laughing. They are white and brown with gorgeous blue/green patches of features in the wings, as you can see clearly in the featured photograph. My lovely and very talented friend Gaby took this stunning photo. I have also focussed on the Ozzie colours for this layout- go green and gold!

To create this layout I have followed the steps below:

  1.  Cut a strip of KAISERCARD CINNAMON WEAVE CARDSTOCK to 30.5 x 21 cm. Punch along the top and bottom using your favourite border punch. Measure ~0.5 cm under the pattern and create stitching holes using the SEW EASY STITCH PIERCER. Use teal coloured DMC thread and sew through holes. Using a PAPER DISTRESSER to distress the unpunched edges.
  2. Take SUNDOWN – NATIVE BREEZE COLLECTION and trim the bottom to 30.5 x 12 cm. Distress short edges and adhere ~1.5 cm from the stitching on the bottom of the cinnamon strip.
  3. Splatter KAISERMIST SPRAY INK – GOLD SHIMMER 50ML onto the prepared strip.

Together with Native Breeze

Hello, Karen here with my second project using the very colourful Native Breeze collection. For this layout I wanted to focus on all the lovely sentiments from the Southern Sky cut-a-part paper.

together

I started by gutting a 1 inch frame from the reverse of Gum Leaves. I then trimmed the Native Flock paper down to an 11 in square and adhered this to the Gum Leaves frame.  Finally I added the piece of Gum Leaves that I had gutted from the middle of the frame.  I then used black embroidery thread to stitch around the Native Flock Paper.

Once my stitching was complete, I started to build up my page by adding the four 3in squares from Southern Sky to a piece of red paper, from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad, and placing this in the centre of my page. My photos were then added.

IMG_2800

I added as many pieces, cut from Southern Sky, to my page as I could fit, choosing the ones that fitted best with my two photos.  To complete this part of my layout I filled in any gaps with word phrases from the Sticker Book and Collectables Pack.

On either side of my central block I added flowers cut from Banksia Bouquet and the corrisponding page from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad, using flowers and leaves from the Collectables Pack to fill in any gaps and to extend my clusters at the top and bottom of each spray.

IMG_2798 IMG_2797

For my title I used the word ‘Together’ – from the Collectables Pack along with a geotag at either end and a flower underneath, these were also from the Collectables Pack.

IMG_2796

Finally I added two Collectables circles and a curio to the middle of my page.

IMG_2795

Using the  Southern Sky cut-a-parts was a lovely way to document two of my favourite family photos.

Uniquely Creative – Tropical Dreams

Hi Everyone,

Here is a layout I’ve created using the gorgeous Tropical Dreams collection from Uniquely Creative. This is a new company we are now stocking, I just love their beautiful scrapbooking collections and coordinating products.

Tropical-Dreams-Logo

I have created this layout using a few papers from the collection, I would advise purchasing the paper pack as you get two of each paper and you will need a couple of extra sheets of some and I also have another layout on the go using this collection.

Below are some brief instructions on how to re-create my layout.

IMG_7371

I have used the Tropical Dreams Paper Pack

1.) Cut in half (horizontal) the two Sunset papers, I have then used the two top sections from both papers, put together to form my base as I wanted the top and bottom of my base paper to be pale.

2.) – Cut the white card down to 29.5cm x29.5cm, mat this onto your base.

3.) – Do the same as in step 1.) with the two Under The Sea papers, as I just wanted the pale pink script showing, it doesn’t matter if one half of the script is up side down, this section should then measure 28.5cm x 28.5cm. Sew around the edge with white cotton, mat onto your layout.

4.) – Cut a circle from another sheet of white card, sew using white cotton, mat onto your layout.

5.) – Use the Bubbles Die, cut about 4 from a white piece of card.

6.) – Fussy cut lots of flowers from the Paradise papers.

7.) – Mat your photo onto your layout, arrange the flowers and bubbles die-cuts around the white frame and your photo. Add in the left over little circles from the die-cut around your photo.

Back in stock is the Wise & Free collection, below are two layouts I’ve created using the Paper Pack & on the second one, I’ve used the Arty doodles stamp set.

Galah with Native Breeze by Kaisercraft

Hi everyone,

Today I am sharing a beautiful layout I have created using the NATIVE BREEZE Collection. I have focused on the pinks blacks and teals of this collection to capture the stunning photo I have used. This amazing photo was taken by my very talented Uncle Ray, who has kindly let me use this photo in my work. With this work, supported by Merly Impressions,  I am hoping to raise money to donate to help the wild life recover from the 2019-2020 Bushfires in Australia. A big thanks to Chrissy and Merly Impressions for supporting this fund raising endeavour.

This Double Page layout features flowers and patterns highlighted in vintage inspired natural tones and also features three black & white photo’s all measuring about 9.5cm wide x 14cm high, It also features fussy cut flowers, stitching & some stamping, the lace border stamp will be available to use at the crop – It is from the “Rosabella’ stamp set, we do have a few in stock, or use the sticker sheet enclosed in the kit which has a doily border – you will need to bring your own butterfly stamp.  have also added detail using some black & red Kaisermists, these will be available to use at the crop as well. I have added my own black rhinestones from my own stash to the butterflies. 

Other items used which you may want to bring are a needle for sewing (if you want to do it) foam pads and a small pair of scissors as there is some fussy cutting on the layout. We will however have a selection of Foam dots/roll, available to purchase in the on site Merly shop.
