Blessed with Journey

Hi everyone, Denise here with my last layout using the Journey Kaisercraft collection.

IMG_0876-R-B2

I focused on using the paper pad on this layout, I started by using a sheet of Voyager paper, then cut a sheet of Snow Kaisercard down by one cm on two adjacent sides, then adhered it to the base paper.Next I took the Paper Pad and used three different papers to punch lots of flowers out.

I took some of the Wood Flourishes and painted them with some shimmery paint.

I then used the paint to stencil through a Mini Star Stencil all over the White Kaisercard.

Once this was dry, I placed the flowers cascading down from the top to bottom in a diamond shape, and once I was happy with the placement I adhered them.

My 4 x 4 photo was matted on to two different papers from the Paper Pad and raised up using  Foam Tape to add dimension.

I also used some Collectables to embellish the layout.

I also used some Mini Paper Blooms and painted them to match.

To finish off, I added some Gold Rhinestones to the centre of the flowers, some of the paper blooms to the centre of some of the flowers and I flicked some Rose Gold Kaisermist all over.

Thanks for popping by and do pop back soon for some more inspiration from the team.

Adventure with Journey

Hello everyone,

Denise here with another layout using the lovely Journey collection.img_0766-r-b

I decided to use navy and yellow/gold  colour ways on this layout .

First of all I took the Daffodil Kaisercard and used it as the base of my page. Next up I took a sheet of the script side of Globe Trotter paper, cut it down on two sides by one cm then spritzed and flicked with White and Gold Kaisermist.

I then took a sheet of Adventurer paper and using the yellow side cut a strip measuring 12 inches long x 8 inches wide. I then pierced down either side and stitched with navy thread.

Once this was on the base paper, I matted my photo on to some papers from the  Paper Pad and edged with a shaped border edge from the pad.

IMG_0766-R

Once my photo was in place I then embellished around the layout using lots of elements from the Sticker Book . There are so many  different elements in these sticker books that I have mainly used only items from there to embellish my layout. I used the word ‘Adventure’ as my title then clustered some stickers down in the left corner, I also used a butterfly sticker I had in my stash from Kaisercraft. Most of these I stuck in to card or paper first then cut round them in order to layer them up on Foam Tape.

I did a final spray of White Kaisermist to finish off, then added a couple of the lovely Curios.

Thank you for popping by and happy crafting !

Abu Dhabi with Journey

Hi everyone,

Denise here with you today with my first layout using the new Journey Kaisercraft collection

IMG_0567 R S-B

I used quite a few of the little Wood Flourishes in this collection. These are really versatile little embellishments. I chose to paint mine so firstly I painted them with some White Gesso.

Once this had dried I painted them with some Gold Paint

IMG_0476

To start the layout I took a sheet of Chestnut Weave Kaisercard.

Next I used a sheet of Vagabond paper which I cut down to 11.5 inches square

Then I stencilled onto this with some Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink through the Direction 6×6 designer stencil.

IMG_0477

I cut some varying sized rectangles from the mosaic side of the Traveller paper  then placed them in an L shape on the right hand side of the layout.

I also used some papers from the  Paper Pad to mat my photo over these rectangles.

As some of the wood flourishes seemed to get a bit lost in the background, I backed a couple of them with some black card just to make them show up a bit more.

IMG_0567

I added these on to the layout then embellished lots more with some of the die cuts from the Collectables Pack and to finish off I did some splats with some gold paint

Enjoy the Journey

Hi Everyone,

Hope you are enjoying the summer weather! Today I would like to share a quick and simple but effective layout that I created using the Journey Collection- Kaisercraft. I have focused on the brown colours of this collection for this layout.
20190630_130020
To begin, I have cut a piece of KAISERCARD WHITE PREMIUM CARDSTOCK to 30 cm x 30 cm. Next I used a the DIAMONDS MINI DESIGNER STENCILKAISERINK PAD – CHOCOLATE and ink blending tool to create the brown pattern on the white background.

20190630_103029

 

Next I took the CLEAR STAMP – SCRIPT BACKGROUND, an ACRYLIC STAMPING BLOCK and KAISERINK PAD – CHOCOLATE to stamp on the edges of the brown inking.

20190630_103517

 

Time to add some photos! I took the brown and white foil sheet from the PAPER PAD – JOURNEY COLLECTION and cut it down to 13.5 cm x 13.5 cm. I attached this to the centre of my layout. I took the left overs from this sheet and framed my two 5.2 cm x 5.2 cm photos. I had already framed these photo with KAISERCARD CINNAMON WEAVE CARDSTOCK which was cut at 5.6 cm x 5.6 cm. I attached these two small photos to the opposite corners.20190630_112201

 

Next was to add more photos. I took two photos 6.8 cm x 6.8 cm and framed with 7.2 cm x 7.2 cm  KAISERCARD CINNAMON WEAVE CARDSTOCK  and a second frame at 8.2 cm x 8.2 cm of the suitcase paper from the PAPER PAD – JOURNEY COLLECTION was also used. These two photos were attached diagonally inside, but overlapping, the two smaller photos. Finally the large photo (10.2 cm x 10.2 cm) was framed with 10.6 cm x 10.6 cm  KAISERCARD CINNAMON WEAVE CARDSTOCK and foam taped to the center of the layout.20190630_120853

 

The last step is the fun step! I have embellished with the brown pop out pieces from the  PAPER PAD – JOURNEY COLLECTION, the quote “Live your life by a compass not a clock’ from MEANDERER – JOURNEY COLLECTIONFLOURISH PACK – FLY AWAYCHEESECLOTH GAUZE and RHINESTONES – SILVER

Enjoy the Journey!

Explore the Unseen

Hi everyone,

Today I am sharing my “Explore the Unseen” layout with you. I love the Journey Collection for its diverse colours. Here I use the pinks and reds with touches of gold in this collection, they go perfectly with the photos I have used. I fell in love with the quote “Explore the Unseen” because it goes perfectly with my new lens ball and my journey in learning how to use it to show the world differently in my photography!

20190527_182741
To begin with, I took a piece of KAISERCARD SNOW WEAVE CARDSTOCK and cut it to 30.5 cm x 30.5 cm. Using the DISTRESS INK PAD – AGED MAHOGANY and a script stamp, I stamped the top left and bottom right corners of the KAISERCARD SNOW WEAVE CARDSTOCK .
20190527_203203
Next, I cut the gold pattern from Nomad paper before cutting the remaining part down to 24.5 cm by 29 cm. To add some gold highlights, I sprayed KAISERMIST SPRAY INK – GOLD SHIMMER 50ML through a stencil on to Nomad paper.
20190522_215933
To get the main base of the layout, I also cut a 5.5 cm x 29 cm strip from Voyager Paper and the bottom strip from Vagabond paper. Then I attached all the pieces across the cardstock as shown in the picture (below).
 20190527_182823
For the photos (7 cm x 7 cm) I prepared frames from KAISERCARD SNOW WEAVE CARDSTOCK measuring 7.7 cm x 7.7 cm. I used the DISTRESS INK PAD – AGED MAHOGANY and a script stamp again to give some colour to my photo frames. I attached the photos to the centre of the frames and attached these to the centre of the layout.
20190527_203259
Lastly, I embellished the layout with pink flowers that I cut from Voyager paper, the vases from Meanderer, The Journey Collectables and RHINESTONES – WINE.

20190527_182751 20190527_182803 20190527_182806 I hope you enjoyed reading this post and enjoy using this wonderful collection too!

Make Time for Happiness

Hi everyone,

I am very excited to have to opportunity to share my work with you this month! Here is one of my layouts, “Make Time for Happiness”, using the Kaisercraft Journey Collection. I fell in love with the Blue and Yellow papers, especially the Globe Trotter paper. It just match so perfectly with the blues and yellows in my photo.

20190501_152452(0)

I have taken the Globe Trotter Paper and cut it down to 27 cm by 27 cm. I have then applied Ranger Texture Paste – Transparent Matte to the top left and bottom right corners, through a demask type stencil. To add some gold to the background I used the KAISERMIST SPRAY INK – GOLD SHIMMER, by applying over the dried texture paste. To finish the main base I matted it to KAISERCARD SNOW WEAVE CARDSTOCK.

20190428_210819

Next I made a frame for the layout using the Adventurer paper. First I cut it down to 29.5 cm by 29.5 cm and then I used the pattern of the paper to cut the inside of the frame with fine scissors and a craft knife. This frame can be attached using Mounting Foam Tape. I then used the bottom strips from Roamer and Adventurer paper to add some blue to the frame.
20190428_211059

Next I made some framing layers for my photo using some papers from the 6.5 x 6.5 inch paper pad and left overs from Adventurer and Globe Trotter papers. I have also fussy cut the gold foil lantern paper from the paper pad and used them on the top left and bottom right of my layout. Lastly, I used the “ALWAYS find time for things that make you feel HAPPY” quote from the Meanderer paper and Rhinestones – Deep Yellow to embellish my layout.

European Journey

Hi everyone,

I am very excited to have to opportunity to share my work with you this month! Here is one of my layouts, “European Journey”, using the Kaisercraft Journey Collection. I fell in love with the books from the Globe Trotter paper and the collectables. I thought I would make an “explorer desk” kind of layout with many photos to be documented.
20190519_175044
I have cut 2x KAISERCARD SHADOW WEAVE CARDSTOCK to 30.5 x 30.5 cm. Next I cut Tourist paper to 28 cm x 28 cm and then it cut diagonally. To the middle of the double layout, I attached the Tourist triangles to form a diagonal strip. I then used 2.5 cm x 30 cm strips of Traveler paper to top and bottom frame to the layout. I left approximately 5 mm from the outsides of the layout when sticking these down.

20190502_185225

Using a Navy Ink and a Tim Holtz Stencil, I inked diagonally along the edges of the Traveler paper. I roughly stamped over the blue inking using the KAISERINK PAD – CHOCOLATE  and a script stamp. Next I cut out the books from Roamer paper and layered them on the top left and bottom right of the double layout.

20190502_221536

I have cut 6 pieces of KAISERCARD SNOW WEAVE CARDSTOCK at 5.4 cm x 8.4 cm and cut out the centers to create polaroid-like frames. Then I Attached photos to the back of the frames. I stuck the framed photos on top of the books, as though they have fallen there. Next I embellished with the collectables. For the final steps, I cut out 24 crosses from Vagabond paper and foam tape 6 crosses in a line from both bottom corners and 12 on the top, in the middle of the top. Added some RHINESTONES – DARK BLUE, ivory string and KAISERMIST SPRAY INK – NAVY 50ML splatters to finish.
