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.

  4. Take the bottom strip from BANKSIA BOUQUET – NATIVE BREEZE COLLECTION and adhere across the top of the brown strip ~1 cm from the top stitching. Take a yellow and a white sticker strip from the STICKER BOOK – NATIVE BREEZE COLLECTION and adhere to the top of the large green section, on both sides.

  5. Take PINK PROTEA – NATIVE BREEZE COLLECTION, remove bottom strip and distress edges. From the middle, cut a piece from the middle 12 x 9.5 cm to frame your photo later. Using spare cardboard or foam tape, adhere your pre-prepared strip ~3.5 cm from the bottom.

    Take photo with dimensions of 15.2 x 10.2 cm frame with pre-cut Pink Protea piece, KAISERCARD CINNAMON WEAVE CARDSTOCK (16 x 10.8 cm), SUNDOWN – NATIVE BREEZE COLLECTION (15.5 x 11.3 cm) and white wattle page from the PAPER PAD – NATIVE BREEZE COLLECTION (11.3 x 16.5 cm), distress all framing pieces. Adhere matted photo to the layout ~3 cm from the top and 5.5 cm from the left of layout. I have also added a Uniquely Creative laser cut word to my photo frame. I have prepared it by inking in KAISERINK PAD – CHOCOLATE and covering it with Rangers Glossy Accents. MIDT2020-02 Native Breeze by Kaisercraft - Kookaburra Image 5
  6. Take 2 x ~40 cm teal coloured DMC thread and pull out each individual thread, curl them up and glue around the edges of the central green strip of your layout. Also add some to the top left of the photo, as a base for a small embellishment cluster. Adhere a second  BANKSIA BOUQUET – NATIVE BREEZE COLLECTION bottom strip (with distressed edges) using foam tape to the bottom edge of the green strip, to help hold the thread in place.MIDT2020-02 Native Breeze by Kaisercraft - Kookaburra Image 6
  7. Fussy cut the Kookaburra birds and matching leaves from NATIVE FLOCK – NATIVE BREEZE COLLECTION. Take these same items from the COLLECTABLES – NATIVE BREEZE COLLECTION. Adhere in the areas where the curly thread in located to help hold it down further.

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.

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.

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.

So Blessed with Kaisercraft’s Lily and Moss Collection

Hello Lovely Craft Friends,

The LILY AND MOSS Collection is just perfect for simple, but bold and contrasting layouts such as this one I have created here. I have used a lovely black and white wedding photo as the focus and main colours of this layout. I have then added a flare of pink. I have even slipped in some of my favourite mixed media techniques. Kaisercraft’s LILY AND MOSS Collection is just perfect if you wish to use a black and white photos or if one if your favourite colours is pink!

Picture 1- So Blessed Lily and Moss Collection

To create this lovely layout, I have followed these steps:

  1. Trim CHALKY – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION to 30.5 x 30.5 cm and stamp in KAISERINK PAD – COTTON CANDY the CLEAR STAMP – LATTICE pattern randomly from the top to the bottom of the left side of the layout and horizontally through the centre.
  2. Apply Tim Holtz Oxide Ink- Black Soot to INKSSENTIALS CRAFT SHEET and spritz with some water. Lay your layout into the liquid in a way that you introduce the black ink to the area you have stamped. It is really nice to see that the black ink takes to the pink ink and adopts the pattern of the stamp in some areas.
  3. After the ink is dry, blend 2 cm edge of KAISERINK PAD – COTTON CANDY on edges of the layout using an ink blending tool and INKSSENTIALS CRAFT SHEET. Followed by a light edge inking in KAISERINK PAD – LICORICEPicture 2- So Blessed Lily and Moss Collection Picture 3- So Blessed Lily and Moss Collection

  5. Take a black and white photo with a white border that measures 11.8 x 8.1 cm. Then mat it with a pink sheet from the PAPER PAD – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION with dimensions of 8.7 x 12.5 cm. Use MOUNTING FOAM TAPE to adhere matted photo to a piece of KAISERCARD COAL WEAVE CARDSTOCK measuring 9.4 x 13.4 cm. Add another layer with a white and black sheet from the PAPER PAD – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION with dimensions of 10.5 x 15.3 cm.

Life Itself is the Most Wonderful Fairytale with Flowers Story

Hello, Karen here with my final project for February using the lovely Flowers Story range from ScrapBoys.  IMG_2540

This time I decided to make a double layout – mainly because the paper pack has two of every paper and it would would be a shame not to utalise them ( the paper pack is an absolute bargain  – 12 papers, plus a fussy cutting sheet, for £9.95).

The final page was a happy accident as I had planned for the two pages to be the opposite way round (with the small centre cluster in the middle) but when I laid them down to photograph put them the opposite way round and liked it better – the joy of double pages :0).

For this page I have used the Flowers Story paper pack, one piece of Paper 07  Mandela 12 x 12 Stencil, Red Gum Ink Pad and two sheets of Oatmeal Kaisercard.

I started by trimming .5 in from one side and the bottom of two pieces of Paper 05 and adding it to my Oatmeal Kaisercard. I laid them side by side and used the Mandela 12 x 12 Stencil and the Red Gum Ink Pad to add a pattern to the centre.

IMG_2381

Next I cut the cluster of flowers from both pieces of Paper 03 and added them to the centre of the Mandela. I cut Paper 02 in half vertically and fussy cut around the flowers, adding this to the far left and far right of my pages.

IMG_2382

From Paper 07 and the corresponding sheet from the paper pack I cut Four butterflies, two large and two small watch faces and four black and white flowers. I added these to the small cluster and top and bottom of the cascade of flowers down the centre.

IMG_2542 IMG_2543

From Paper 06, I cut four large frames and added them to my page, with my photos on top.

Right Left

I used ‘Life itself is the most WONDERFUL FAIRYTALE stamp and a scrap of paper for my title.

I have really enjoyed working with this paper range this month and have found it so versatile, it is the perfect range for both male and female projects.

Today’s Moments with Kaisercraft’s Lily and Moss Collection

Hello Lovely Craft Friends,

I had a lot of fun scraping this gorgeous 6 month photo of my Mum’s friends granddaughter. The pinks and greens of the LILY AND MOSS Collection were just so perfect for this cute baby page. I have included some horizontal bunting- shaped pieces to compliment my theme and add something a little extra. Many of you would like to know that there also no fussy cutting in this layout so maybe this will encourage you to give this one a go! It would be suitable for many types of photos, not only baby photos.Picture 1- Today's Moment- Lily and Moss Collection

To create this gorgeous layout I followed the steps below:

  1. Take WHIRL – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION and trim to 30.5 x 30.5 cm. Distress the edges using a PAPER DISTRESSER, followed by inking the edges using an Ink Blending tool and KAISERINK PAD – FOREST.
  2. Using CLEAR TEXTURE STAMP – GRID and KAISERINK PAD – FOREST stamp the length of the right side of the page and tapering down to the middle of the left side of the page.
    NB. Before taking the next step, I would recommend cutting a 16 x 12.8 cm rectangle from the Whirl paper unless you are happy to use a second sheet.Picture 2- Today's Moment- Lily and Moss Collection
  3. Take FLORA – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION and cut two strips at 26.5 x 12.3 cm and 22.8 x 5.3 cm. Cut an isosceles triangle from one end of each piece to form a bunting shape. Distress the edges using a PAPER DISTRESSER, followed by inking the edges using an Ink Blending tool and KAISERINK PAD – FOREST.
  4. Take PRIMARY – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION and cut a strip at 26.5 x 12.3 cm.Cut an isosceles triangle from one end of each piece to form a bunting shape. Distress the edges using a PAPER DISTRESSER, followed by inking the edges using an Ink Blending tool and KAISERINK PAD – FOREST.
  5. Layer the bunting as shown in the picture below. The green piece is about 7 cm from the bottom and 1 cm from the right side. Whereas, the pink piece is about 7.5 cm from the top and 2 cm from the right. Picture 3- Today's Moment- Lily and Moss Collection
  6. I have then glued 3 strips of Burlap Lace with differing lengths (26, 24 and 18 cm), decreasing in size from right to left on the page. I have used spare paper to form a “hold” for the Lace. You could use any lace here or even a few more layer of papers instead.
  7. Frame photo (15.1 x 10.2 cm) with a pink-green mix sheet from the PAPER PAD – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION cut down to 16 x 11.2 cm. Prepare another piece of this sheet at 13.5 x 4.2 cm to make an additional bunting piece to go under top left corner of the framed photo. Lastly, take a piece of the WHIRL – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION  with measurements of16 x 12.8 cm. Distress the edges of all pieces and ink all edges with  KAISERINK PAD – FOREST. Layer all the pieces as shown in the picture below and use MOUNTING FOAM TAPE to adhere to the layout, on the right side of the central bunting layers.Picture 4- Today's Moment- Lily and Moss Collection
  8. Embellish with the COLLECTABLES – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION and CURIOS – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION.Picture 5- Today's Moment- Lily and Moss Collection
  9. Embellish further with stickers from the STICKER BOOK – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION, pulled green thread, Glossy Accents and RHINESTONES – SOFT PINKPicture 1- Today's Moment- Lily and Moss Collection Picture 6- Today's Moment- Lily and Moss Collection Picture 7- Today's Moment- Lily and Moss Collection Picture 8- Today's Moment- Lily and Moss Collection

Happiness looks Gorgeous on You with Kaisercraft’s Lily and Moss Collection

Hello Lovely Craft Friends,

Who would of though how versatile the LILY AND MOSS Collection was? For this layout I have focused on the bold greens and pinks in this collection as they really suit the photo I am using. I fell in love with the deep green used on the FLICKER – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION paper and decided to use it as the main background to layout. I also added some bold pink by painting the little wooden flourishes to further compliment my photo.Picture 1- Today's Moment- Lily and Moss Collection

To create this simple but cute layout I have followed the instructions below:

  1. Take FLICKER – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION and trim to 30.5 x 30.5 cm. Measure 4.5 cm from each corner and punch using your favourite punch. Take one dark green tile from PINK PLASTER – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION, cut into quarters diagonally and foam tape to each corner of the layout. Picture 2- Today's Moment- Lily and Moss Collection

  4. Take the colourful triangle and green tile sheets from the PAPER PAD – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION and ink the edges with an Ink Blending Tool and KAISERINK PAD – FOREST. Foam tape the green sheet to the middle of the layout. Take the colourful triangle sheet, turn 45 degrees to appear as a diamond, and adhere in the middle of the layout.
  5. Adhere a photo with dimensions of 10.2 x 15.1 cm to the centre of the layout. Cut the large white frame from CIRCULAR – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION and ink the edges with KAISERINK PAD – FOREST. Use MOUNTING FOAM TAPE to adhere the frame over the photo.Picture 4- Today's Moment- Lily and Moss Collection
  6. Cut two pink sentiments from CIRCULAR – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION and frame with a pink and green swirl sheet from the PAPER PAD – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION. Adhere one sentiment to the top left of the photo and the other to the bottom right.
  7. Fussy cut the Lilies from FLORA – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION and embellish the layout with them.
  8. Further embellish with the butterflies from the STICKER BOOK – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION and the COLLECTABLES – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION. As well as, the two pink square-shaped flourishes from the  COLLECTABLES – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION.
  9. Take two wooden flourishes from the FLOURISH PACK – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION, paint with KAISERCOLOUR PAINT – CANDY 75ML and glue onto the layout.

Portugal Adventures with Grand Bazaar

Hi fellow crafters,

I was very excited to receive the GRAND BAZAAR collection to work on for this month. As soon as I saw it, I just knew I had the perfect photos to scrap using it! I think this collection is good for many different types of projects, from love photos, to adventures and childhood memories. It also very suitable for Male layouts and all sorts of greetings cards. This collection has many colours which can be used all together in a project or separated to focus on just 2 or 3 colours. I found that my photos suited the more selective type of colours. For example, I have focused on the blue and yellow tones for this layout. I have then further focused on the doors and tiles to compliment my photo and to express my memory of Portugal as you will find many intricate tiles and beautiful doors during an adventure there.

Portugal Adventures With Grand Bazaar 5

To create this layout I have followed the steps below:

  1. Take CERAMIC TILES (yellow side), trim to 29.5 x 29.5 cm. Using a CRAFT KNIFE, cut 4 sets of 5 tiles from the middle of the reverse side. Apply TEXTURE PASTE to the yellow side of the page, in the middle of of each side, through the ORNATE DAMASK 6X6 DESIGNER STENCIL.

  2. Use KAISERINK PAD – DENIM to stamp CLEAR STAMP – LATTICE on to the prepared CERAMIC TILES background.
  3. Cut KAISERCARD BLUEBERRY WEAVE CARDSTOCK to 12 x12 inch. Adhere prepared CERAMIC TILES to the middle of the cardstock, leaving the bottom right hand corner free to be folded back. Fold back corner and adhere the tip. Slot one of the 5 tile sets under the folded corner and adhere.

Birthday Tea Party with Oh Happy Day

Hello, Karen here with my final project for January using the Oh Happy Day collection from Kaisercraft.

This time I decided to make a multi-photo layout using lots of Curios, Collectables, Stickers and pop-outs from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad.  They were perfect for clustering in a circle around my five photos.

Birthday Tea Party

For this layout I have used Party Popper, 100’s and 1000’s and Starlight 12 x 12 papers,  Curios, collectables, sticker book, 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad, Lemonade Kaisercard,   Sea Breeze Alpha silver rhinestones  and Fireworks stencil.

I started by cutting the  Party Popper and 100’s and 1000’s paper diagonally and then cutting .25 in from both the straight sides.  This was adhered to the Lemonade Kaisercard with a .5 in wide piece of Starlight covering the join.  I drew a pencil circle on the middle of my page and added the words ‘Birthday Tea’ using Sea Breeze Alpha.IMG_1952

I added my five photos to the circle then used the  Fireworks stencil and some texture paste to add little bursts to my page.  I only spread the paste through individual bursts so that I was able to easily determine where they would be placed.

All that remained was to fill in the circle around my photos using stickers, pop outs from the 6.5 x 6.5 sticker book, collectables, elements cut from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad and I cut the words from some of the bingo cards on the 100’s and 1000’s paper.  I also dotted some silver rhinestones around the page. IMG_2060

To finish my page I added three Curios to the centre of three of the bursts.

The ‘Party’ banner, from the collectables pack, was a perfect finish to my page.
