Love My Life with #Me

Hello everyone,

Denise here with another layout using #Me Kaisercraft Collection.

019I started by using a sheet of 12 x 12 Coconut Weave Cardstock. I then took some Kaisermists in Olive and Antique Gold and sprayed over the cardstock with both. I then took the lid off, took the nozzle out and tapped to drip some ink onto the card.

017aNext I cut into a variety of  papers from the 6.5 x6.5 paper pad to use for the background

013aI also used some stickers from the sticker sheet as borders and sentiments

002I matted my photo onto Brey Cardstock then added it to the layout together with some sentiments from the paper pad and sticker sheet . I then coloured in some of the doodles on the papers. The large green flower under the photo was cut from the paper pad.006Lastly I added some gems in the corners and a punched heart together with a Berry Vine Decorative Die cut from paper from the paper pad009I have really enjoyed using this collection and hope you’ve enjoyed our projects – look out for some new inspiration coming soon !

You’re Great – #Me

Hi Everyone,

Linda here with a layout made with the fabulous #Me Collection from Kaisercraft.

IMG_9916 smallI began with a sheet of Coconut Kaisercard and gutted the centre 2″ from the edge, followed by a piece of Brey Kaisercard which has been edge with a Martha Stewart Punch-around-the-page, deep edge. Once done I gutted the centre 3″ from the white edge. A frame of Licorice Kaisercard was last, measuring 8 3/4″ square and gutted to 1″.

IMG_9911 smallLots of gutting there but it saves cardstock and makes the pages lighter. Next came a square cut from Goals keeping the floral pattern on the left. Faux stitching was added to the edge with a Black Micron Pen.

IMG_9912 smallMy photograph was trimmed to 3 x 6″ and mounted onto the left over Licorice Kaisercard, along with a piece from the reverse of Goals (grid) and a message cut from Encourage which I raised on mounting foam. Tabs were added from the Sticker Sheet top right and bottom left.

IMG_9913 smallI made the flowers using Burlap ribbon and a Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die. I shaped them the same way as I did roses previously and included a layer of white mesh. The smaller blooms have a button stitched through and the whole thing is glued together.

IMG_9914 smallOnce in place, I added some foliage cut with another Sizzix die, made some smaller roses with paper from The Paper Pad and punched some daisies and leaves. I used the cut-off strip from goals to add a row of hearts too. Then, back to the Micron Pen and a White Gel Pen to add stitching to the foliage. Lastly, some Black Rhinestones dotted around to add flower centres and accents.

Check back later for more inspiration from the team, until then,

Take care

Life is Precious – #Me

 

Hi Everyone,

Linda here with another layout using the beautiful #Me from Kaisercraft.

IMG_9941 smallI began by gutting a sheet of Licorice Kaisercard to 1″ from the edge, then trimmed Notes die-cut paper to create a small border.

IMG_9930 smallWith the leftover piece of Licorice Kaisercard, I cut to 4×6″ and embossed this and the smaller piece with Doodles folder. It gives such a beautifully crisp image!

IMG_9931 smallWith a small piece of cut-n-dry foam and white paint, I skimmed the surface to create a chalk board effect.  I added these together in a long strip to the left of the page.

IMG_9933 smallA sheet from the paper pad was inked and placed at an angle to the right and another to mat my photograph on to. This is 4×5″ with a small border using Brey Kaisercard.  These lovely banners and arrow are also from the pad, they are die-cuts at the back. I’ve raised them on mounting foam.  To disguise the join in the embossed pieces, I added a border from the sticker sheet and continued it across the whole page, plus more of the Burlap roll which I trimmed and frayed.

IMG_9936 smallMy flowers were punched with another sheet from the paper pad along with the large foliage. These were placed bottom left of my photograph once I had added faux stitching with a Black Micron pen. I used the threads pulled from the Burlap to tuck under the flowers and knot the buttons, then added some small white leaves to complete it.

Finally some stickers from the sticker sheet and Black Rhinestones, et voila – done.

I can’t wait to show you what I have to play with next – it’s soooooooo beautful!

Until then, take care,

~ Linda ~

#Me and Son

Good morning everyone,

Denise here with another beautiful Kaisercraft collection called #Me.

001My first project is one of my own choice- a photo frame using one of the Beyond The Page frames.

I started by covering the frame with half of the polka dot side of the ‘Achievement’ paper using a glue stick. The paper has some amazing doodle designs on the other side.

Next I used a floral paper from the 6.5 x6.5 paper pad and die cut some flowers with the Layered Flower Decorative Die . After shaping them I layered them up with some foam pads and added a black gem in the middle. Then added one at the bottom left and one at the top right of the frame.

005I then took another paper from the 6.5 x6.5 paper pad, this time a grey one and used the beautiful hearts Kaisercraft Decorative die. I also cut some hearts with the floral paper to contrast the grey. I added these at the bottom front of the frame.

007Once the frame was decorated I mounted my photo on to some Grey Cardstock, then used some black lace to frame the photo around the inside. Then the frame was stuck to the base with some string adhesive tape.

Lastly I added the words ‘My Life My Story at the top and a little scribble heart tucked into the flower on the left – both from the Collectables Pack

I hope you like this little project and do pop back for lots more stunning ideas from the Design Team

This is me! #Me

Hi All,

Linda here with the gorgeous #Me collection from Kaisercraft – just loving these papers! I have made a wall hanging using part of a Beyond the Page item.

IMG_9927 smallIt’s the back panel from the Gift Album.

IMG_9921 small I used it horizontally with the holes along the top edge and covered it with beautiful papers from the paper pad. Approximately 5″ of the lacey paper and 2 1/2″ of the woodgrain. I poked the 2nd and 4th holes through and ink all the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink.

IMG_9924 smallA strip of black lace covered the join, then I mounted my photo 2 1/2 x 3 1/2″ onto Licorice Kaisercard and a piece of Goals grid paper.  I cut a leaf with a Sizzix die in Licorice card and frayed a piece of Burlap from the roll and placed these to the left of the photo.

IMG_9925 smallSmall roses were made using Dreams paper, I added these along with some thread from the Burlap,

IMG_9928 smallPunched fronds were added with some Diamond Stickles. The leaf was painted with Wink of Stella, clear sparkle. I had a little white lattice die-cut which I tucked behind too.

IMG_9929 smallTo the woodgrain side, I added some words from the Sticker Sheet, outlined with a Black Micron Pen. To finish I added a button from my collection, some knotted string as a hanger and some Black Rhinestones.

Take care,

~ Linda ~
