Double Trouble in Paradise with Sunkissed by Kaisercraft

Hello Merly Impressions fans,

Today I would like to share with you a fun, multi-photo, double layout that I created using the SUNKISSED Collection by Kaisercraft. I went for a fairly simple layout with few layers this time, however I add a little bit of fun mixed media. This is the perfect layout practice mixed media with because most of the back ground is covered in photos and any mistakes with it! Or if you love the background, you can simply use less photos. I have tried to capture a weekend trip to Palma, Mallorca, with this layout.MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-Double Trouble in Paradise- Picture1

To create this double layout I have used the instructions below:

  1. Take two sheets of KAISERCARD SNOW WEAVE CARDSTOCK and cut into three pieces 27.5, 24 and 4 cm wide and all 24 cm high.
  2. Take the smallest piece and add a leaf pattern by inking though TROPICAL LEAVES 6X6 DESIGNER STENCIL, using an ink blending tool with KAISERINK PAD – FOREST and KAISERINK PAD – BLUE HAZEMIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-Double Trouble in Paradise- Picture2
  3. Apply Distress Oxide- Lucky Clover, Distress Oxide- Mermaid Lagoon and Distress Ink- Peacock Feathers to an INKSSENTIALS CRAFT SHEET, spray with some water. Dip paper into the ink, repeat until you are happy with how it looks.MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-Double Trouble in Paradise- Picture3
  4. Take the two larger SNOW pieces and tape together behind. Repeat steps 3 and 4 on this larger section. MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-Double Trouble in Paradise- Picture4
  5. Splatter with KAISERMIST SPRAY INK – NAVY 50ML.

Paradise with Sunkissed

Hello, Karen here with another layout using the amazingly fun and colourful Sunkissed range for which I had the perfect photo of Gracia from a few years ago. 

With the lockdown in progress I found I had loads of time on my hands for some fussy cutting and this range provides ample opportunity for this.  So I settled down to watch a film and fussy cut all the elements from Pina Colada, Pineapple Sour and Tutti Fruitti. Although, I knew I wouldn’t use all of these on one layout I would have them prepared for future projects.

Paradise

I started this layout with a piece of Lime Weave Kaisercard and onto this I added a piece of Long Island paper which I had trimmed .25in from the bottom and right. I then added a sheet of green polka dot paper from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad. Next I fussy cut the flower borders from a piece of paper from the  6.5 x 6.5 paper pad which matched the Long Island paper and added this to the left of the polka dot paper.

IMG_3375

To the right and left of my page I added some of my fussy cut elements along with some pieces from the Collectables pack.

IMG_3377

Next I used the Clear Stamps  and black ink to stamp some additional butterflies onto the pineapple paper from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad and fussy cut these out too.

IMG_3372

They were then tucked in and around my two large clusters on either side of my page.

To finish my page I added the word Paradise and and two phrases – from the Collectables pack and a ticket from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad .

IMG_3379

The final touch was to add the wording from the branding strip of the Pineapple Sour paper.

Hope you all stay safe and are able to take your mind of things with a little crafting

Quick and Easy Layout with Sunkissed by Kaisercraft

Hi crafty friends,

Popping in to share an extra layout that I have made using my “left-overs” from the SUNKISSED Collection. I started by fussy cutting many of the elements in this collection and I didn’t end up using them on my first three layouts so I have used them here. I think this is a very basic layout that turned out very effective. If you were to to try out this layout you could add more or less layers, depending on your taste or how much time you have. MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-Quick and Easy Layout-Picture1

To create this layout I have used the steps below:

  1. Take MARTINI – SUNKISSED COLLECTION and trim the bottom strip (keep for later). Ink edges with MINI INK PAD – VINE and splatter with KAISERMIST SPRAY INK – BLACK 50ML.
  2. Cut KAISERCARD INK WEAVE CARDSTOCK 13.5 x 10.7 cm and frame a photo with dimensions of 13 x 10.2 cm. Adhere matted photo the the right side of the pre-formed circle of MARTINI.MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-Quick and Easy Layout-Picture2
  3. Fussy cut Leaves and flowers TUTTI FRUTTI – SUNKISSED COLLECTION and matching mini sheet from PAPER PAD – SUNKISSED COLLECTION, also take these items from the COLLECTABLES – SUNKISSED COLLECTION.
  4. Adhere leaves around the printed circle to start giving it a 3D effect.MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-Quick and Easy Layout-Picture4
  5. Adhere some of the flowers around the printed circle.MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-Quick and Easy Layout-Picture3
  6. Adhere some more flowers.MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-Quick and Easy Layout-Picture5
  7. Take the bottom strip from MARTINI – SUNKISSED COLLECTION and adhere about 2 cm from the bottom of the layout.

Cards using Sunkissed

Hello, Karen here with three cards I have made using the remaining ‘fussy cut’ elements from my mammoth fussy cutting session earlier in the month.  I rarely make cards but there are three special people with birthdays in April – Gracia – my daughter, Hannah – her best friend and Denise – my best friend.

I used instructions from Pinterest to make the cards and so, for ease, will link these to this post.

Z Fold Box CardZ Fold Box Card 3
For the base of this card I used a piece of Lemonade weave Kaisercard and these instructions.  Once I had made my card base I covered it with the sheet of paper with pineapples on from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad. I also fussy cut the parrot, sheet with two sprigs of pink and white flowers and some clusters of leaves and flowers from this pad too.

I added a palm tree from the Collectables pack and a Happy Birthday ticket from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad.

Z Fold Box Card 2 Z Fold Box Card 1

Swing Corner Card

I started by using some 12 x 12 Coal weave Kaisercard for my base.  The instructions are here but I have drawn a template to make it a little easier.

Swing Card Template

Once I had cut and scored my card I then used glue to stick the triangle with the score to the back of the square below the one with the window in. So it would be the bottom left one on the template above.

IMG_3565

I then decorated the front of my card with the square wreath from the Pineapple sour paper and a label from the  6.5 x 6.5 paper pad.

Swing Corner Card 1

To the two inside side pieces I used two pink and white papers, a square of flamingo paper and a tag from the  6.5 x 6.5 paper pad.

Swing Corner Card 3 Swing Corner Card 2

On the bottom panel I added a piece of pink paper from the  6.5 x 6.5 paper pad and some flowers and leaves from the  Collectables pack.

Swing Corner Card 4

Origami Star Card

Star Card 1

For the base of this card I used a piece of Kaisercraft smooth cardstock.  The instructions are here. For the paper on my card I used a sheet of Mojito and one sheet was enough for to cover all the panels.

At the top of my star I added a flower from the Collectables pack and a tag and tab (trimmed to fit)  from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad.

Star Card 2

Another piece from the  Collectables pack fitted perfectly onto the inside triangle along with a couple of pieces from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad.

So there we have my three cards ready to post off to their recipients.

Stay safe and hope you can get some craft time.

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.

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!

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.

A big thanks to Chrissy and Merly Impressions for supporting this fund raising endeavour.

  10. Additionally, I am planning to sell this layout to raise money for helping Australia recovery from the nasty bushfires that ravaged a lot of the country over summer. If you are interested please contact me at roxiiscraftstudio@gmail.com, via Facebook at roxiiscraftstudio, or at the March Crop where you can also see it in real life. Just a reminder that I am also selling my cards which can be found at Australian Bushfire Recovery- Card Sale on Facebook Xx.

I hope you enjoyed reading all about how I created this beautifully Australian themed layout!

Happy Crafting!
