Cherished with Enchanted

Hi everyone Denise here again with another layout using the Enchanted CollectionIMG_1307RB

This collection is very versatile as I used it for a masculine layout last time and this time i’m going girly!

I started with a piece of Wonder paper, using the plain side, I also left the manufacturer’s strip along the bottom. I then cut a strip from Utopia paper measuring 4 inches wide x 12 inches long and a strip measuring 1/4 of an inch x 12 inches from the red side of Fairytale paper. This was then  adhered on the right hand side of the paper.

Next, I pierced around three sides of the plain paper then stitched around with red thread and using the Stonewall 6×6 stencil and some Aged Mahogany Ink stencilled areas on the paper. I also inked around the edges of the layout.IMG_1150

Once this was done I matted my photo using different papers from the Paper Pad, distressed the edges then placed it roughly in the middle of the layout.

I used some of the elements from the back of the paper pad to embellish the layout I also fussy cut a little bird from one of the papers in the pad.IMG_1306

Next, I fussy cut some flowers and also used some of the die cuts from the Collectables Pack to layer around the sides and bottom of the photo.  I also used some phrases  from the Paper Pad around  the photo and used some elements from the Sticker Book around the layout .

Finally I used some little colour co ordinating bows from my stash to finish off.

Thank you for visiting and do pop back for some more inspiration from the team very soon

You Are So Loved with Misty Mountains

Hello,

Karen here with the last of my April pages using  the purpleicious  Misty Mountains Kaisercraft range.

So Loved BannerFor this page I wanted to utalise the triangles on several of the papers to make hexagons to scatter around my page.

I cut ½ in from the top and one side of the reverse side of the Bokka paper.  I then added this to the top of the reverse of Light Leak.   Next, using the white lines as a guide, I cut a large hexagon from the reverse of Agate.

So Loved Detail 1I cut more hexagons from the reverse of Eclipse and from the corresponding paper from the paper pack, which has the triangles printed in a lovely, shiny rose gold, and scattered these about my page in clusters of three.

So Loved Detail 3Using two more pages from the paper pack I mounted my photo and added this to my page.  My title was fussy cut from the Be You Quotes foil paper.  To finish I added some pieces from the Collectables pack, Wine gems and some Grape Paper Blooms.

So Loved Detail 3Looking forward to showing you my projects next month. 29695287_10211771445865531_2251198259858808640_n 21432896_10211771445905532_5537441294320168696_n

Beautiful with Misty Mountains

Hello,

Karen here with second of my April pages using  Misty Mountains Kaisercraft collection .  I can’t get enough of this range as each and every sheet is so pretty.

BeautifulFor this page I featured the Damask Mini Stencil, Paint Strokes Stamp, Orchid Ink Pad and Ranger Transparent Gloss Texture Paste.

I cut ½ in from the top and one side of the Marbled paper.  I then used the Damask Mini Stencil and Ranger Transparent Gloss Texture Paste in four areas of the paper.  Once this was dried I gave it a light coat of Gesso and wiped over the areas with the texture paste with a baby wipe to reveal the colour of the paper below.  As I thought this worked in the same way as transparent embossing powder but with less faff!

Detail 1Once the Gesso had dried I stamped with the Paint Strokes Stamp and  Orchid Ink Pad across the texture paste areas but in the opposite direction.  I also ‘dabbed’ the ink pad through the stencil in areas.

Detail 2I cut a 5¾ x 7¾ rectangle from a piece of Lilac Weave Cardstock  and adhered the Marbled paper to the centre of the remaining piece.

Detail 4Cut branding strips from two of your papers and the Devine paper to add around the outside of your page.

To complete my page I added two pieces of paper from the Misty Mountain Paper Pad , stuck together and trimmed to 6½ x 5¼, to the piece of Lilac card from  above and then my photo was added to this.  I also cut some of the phrases from the Misty Mountain Paper Pad to add, with some phrases and the word ‘beautiful from the Collectables pack, at the top right and bottom left of my page.

Looking forward to showing you my next project

Loved & Blessed with Misty Mountains

Hello,

Karen here with my first April page using the utterly gorgeous Misty Mountains range.  How beautiful are the papers in this collection with all the stunning purple and rust hues?

Loved with Banner

For this page I featured the Hexagon die cut paper.  First I cut a  ¾ in frame from a piece of Moody and mounted a piece of white card, that had been trimmed down to 11½  in square, onto the top of that.

I drew a 1 in border around the  Hexagon die cut paper and cut this out.  Then the hexagon frame was backed with the piece of Moody and the excess trimmed away.  I only adhered the frame at the outer edge so that I would be able to tuck flowers underneath.

I trimmed a piece of the light coloured marbled paper, from the 6½ x 6½ paper pad to 5 ins square and added my photo to this, which was then tucked under the top left of my hexagonal frame.

Next I used flowers from the sticker sheet and Collectables pack and fussy cut some flowers from the 6½ x 6½ paper pad which were all added to the right side of my frame.

To finish I added a title, a couple of tags and some phrases all from the Collectables pack.

Time to Sparkle with Christmas Jewel

Hello everyone,

Denise here with a layout using the beautifully different Christmas Jewel Kaisercraft Collection.

039AI cut a star out using my cutting machine but you can easily find one on the internet as a template, from Coconut Weave Kaisercard.

Next, I decided to add some stitching around the star. I used a pokey tool and piercing ruler, but you can also use a Sew Easy Tool.

009It’s very therapeutic sitting sewing. Once this was done I used another piece of Coconut Weave as my base then cut down the gorgeously glittery Ornate Garland paper to 11.5 x 11.5 inches and placed this on the card.

I placed the star on to the paper with some foam tape.

My photo was mounted on some papers from the 6.5 x6.5  paper pad.

CroppedI used some die cuts from the Collectables as embellishments too.

I also used some of the wooden flourishes, some I painted lilac and some gold.

flourish-pack-gardenI had some snowflakes in my stash and dotted them around the layout topped with some rhinestones. 

The team will be back with much more inspiration very soon!

Festive Box Frame with Christmas Jewel

Hello everyone,

Denise here with a free project of a little festive frame using the lovely Christmas Jewel Kaisercraft  Collection.

Merly take three 001AI actually had a frame at home that was perfect for this, I painted it first with some white Kaiserpaint.

Next I took the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad and chose a paper to go at the back together with some of the die cuts from the Collectables Pack.

collectables-christmas-jewel-collectionI used one of the Christmas trees to draw around to make some more from the papers in the paper pad.

020Next I laid them out roughly how I wanted them to be on the background. I then covered the frame with the beautiful Silver Swirl Foil paper.

 

Photo 04-09-2017, 14 53 31I fussy cut some of the silver flowers from the paper pad and inked around them with some of the Orchid Mini Ink Pad.

019I glittered the big tree and the stars with some  Crystal Stickles. I’m one of those people who likes a bit of glitter if at all possible !

021Finally I went over some of the elements with some ink from the Orchid Mini Ink Pad .

This will be out on show in my house this year at Christmas time.
