We Just Knew We Were Having Fun with Native Breeze

Hello, Karen here with my first layout using Native Breeze from Kaisercraft.  Now I was a little unsure of this paper range as I thought I would struggle as it is very ‘Australian’ but no – it was a ‘breeze’ (see what I did there) to work with and I was able to make pages that I was really happy with.
We Didn't Realise

I started by spending a happy afternoon cutting all the flowers from two sheets of Wattle Flower, one sheet of Banksia Bouquet and the corresponding paper from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad.  I then had plenty of flowers for my layout with some to spare.

I cut a piece of  the remaining Wattle Flower to six inches tall and added it to the centre of a piece of Ink Weave Kaisercard. next I added a 4 in piece of Pink Protea (mustard side showing) and finally to the centre of this added a 3 in piece of Flowering.  I finished this central strip with rows of stitching to the top and bottom of both the Wattle Flower and Pink Protea.   My 3in x 4in photo was placed centrally onto this.

The flowers cut from Wattle Flower were added to the top left and bottom right of my cardstock with the straight edges aligning to the corners of the page.  I then extended my clusters across the page using some of the flowers I had fussy cut from Banksia Bouquet and the corresponding paper from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad and some leaves and flowers form the Collectables Pack.

IMG_2669

Note – the rectangle of paper with hexagons is not from this range but I was using it to decide on my photo size and placement

I added two parrots from the Collectables Pack to the top right and bottom left of my central strips of paper and finished by using the wording from the bottom of the sheet of Pink Protea as my title.

I think that the vibrant pinks and yellows of this range look gorgeous against a black background.

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.

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
  4. Mix a little bit of  TEXTURE PASTE and KAISERCOLOUR PAINT – CANDY 75ML, then apply over the black inked parts of your layout, through the TINY TRIANGLES 6X6 DESIGNER STENCILPicture 4- 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.
  6. Take another pink and a white and black sheet from the PAPER PAD – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION and trim to 6 x14.5 cm and layer behind the layered photo with one slightly higher and the other slightly lower. Add two strips of punched KAISERCARD COAL WEAVE CARDSTOCK 10 cm long and a few stickers from the STICKER BOOK – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION. Adhere layered photo to the middle of left side of the page. Picture 5- So Blessed Lily and Moss Collection

  6. Fold it up by pulling the two larger sections (with the half circle tabs at the top) up to 90 degrees from the base. Pull the two quarter circles in to 90 degrees at all angles, forming a box shape. Hold the quarter circles there by folding one of the long sides up and over, tucking the extended end into the slot in the base. Repeat on the other side. Picture 2- Friendship Box 2020 Picture 3- Friendship Box 2020

6 Effective Cards using the Kaisercraft Lily and Moss Collection

Hello fellow crafters,

This month I am working with the lovely pink and green filled LILY AND MOSS Collection by Kaisercraft. The tones of this collection work so well together that it was hard not to use all the papers on one project! I have created at beautiful sextet of cards to share with you this month. Each card has the same basic starting elements and then embellishing the has made each one individual. I have included the instructions below, just incase you are interesting in giving this set of cards a go yourself. Picture 1- Card Sextet Lily and Moss Collection

To create my sextet of greeting cards, I have used the following instructions :

  1. Take or make 6 white cards 10.2 x15.4 cm. Ink the edges using an Ink Blending tool and KAISERINK PAD – FOREST.
  2. Onto 2 of the cards, randomly stamp CLEAR TEXTURE STAMP – GRID in  KAISERINK PAD – FOREST.  Onto 2 other cards, randomly stamp CLEAR STAMP – LATTICE in KAISERINK PAD – LICORICE. To the last two cards apply a TEXTURE PASTE + KAISERCOLOUR PAINT – CANDY 75ML mix through the TINY TRIANGLES 6X6 DESIGNER STENCILPicture 2- Card Sextet Lily and Moss Collection
  3. Take 2x pink, 2x green and 2x black and white sheets from the PAPER PAD – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION. Cut each sheet into 2x squares (7×7 cm) and 2x rectangles (8×4 cm). Turn the rectangles into bunting by cutting triangles from the short side of the rectangles. Ink the edges in  KAISERINK PAD – FOREST.
    NB. I have prepared some extra pieces but did not end up using them.Picture 4- Card Sextet Lily and Moss Collection
  4. Adhere the prepared pieces to the cards so that there is 2x bunting and 2x squares on each card. I have used cardboard from an old pizza box and glue under the top square to give dimension but MOUNTING FOAM TAPE could be used instead.Picture 3- Card Sextet Lily and Moss Collection
  5. For the last step, make each card unique by embellishing using a variety of items. Including but not limited to stickers from the STICKER BOOK – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION, embellishments from the PAPER PAD – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION and COLLECTABLES – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION, wooden flourishes from the FLOURISH PACK – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTIONCURIOS – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTIONPAPER BLOOMS – COCONUTPAPER BLOOMS – FAIRY FLOSSRHINESTONES – SOFT PINK, and RHINESTONES – SILVER.Picture 5- Card Sextet Lily and Moss Collection Picture 6- Card Sextet Lily and Moss Collection Picture 7- Card Sextet Lily and Moss Collection Picture 8- Card Sextet Lily and Moss Collection

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

“When in Rome” Layout using the Kaisercraft Lily and Moss Collection

Hello Lovely Crafty Friends,

Today I am sharing with you a layered love layout that I have created using Kaisercraft’s LILY AND MOSS Collection. These photos were taken in Rome, in front of the Trevi Fountain, where my boyfriend proposed to me! I originally thought the green colours in the photo’s perfectly suited this collection. However, once I printed the photos they contained too many other colours that did not suit, so I reprinted them in black and white. Therefore, the moral of this story is “Don’t underestimate the power of black and white photos!”. I also found that my engagement ring was not clearly defined in the photo’s so I added small rhinestones to make it “bling”.

Picture 1- When in Rome Lily and Moss Collection

To create this layered layout I have followed the steps below:

  1. Trim KAISERCARD DEW DROP WEAVE CARDSTOCK to 12 x 12 inch and ink the edges using KAISERINK PAD – FOREST and an Ink Blending tool. Stamp in KAISERINK PAD – FOREST the CLEAR TEXTURE STAMP – PAINT SPLATTER, at approximately 1 cm from the top and bottom.Picture 2- When in Rome Lily and Moss Collection
  2. Take PRIMARY – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION and rip the top and bottom to reach a size of approximately 26.5 cm high. Adhere to the middle of prepared Dew Drop Cardstock.  Rip the top and bottom of FLORA – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION to approximately 21 cm high. Randomly transfer TEXTURE PASTE through TINY TRIANGLES 6X6 DESIGNER STENCIL along the ripped edges of Flora. Adhere to the middle of the layout. Cut a strip of PINK PLASTER – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION that is two tiles high and 5 tiles wide, ink the edges using KAISERINK PAD – FOREST and foam tape to the centre of the layout.Picture 3- When in Rome Lily and Moss Collection
  3. Take two strips of  PINK PLASTER – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION, tuck under the Flora layer and adhere. Take two dark green strips, approximately  1 cm x 12 inch, tuck and foam tape under the large, central strip of Pink Plaster.Picture 4- When in Rome Lily and Moss Collection
  4. Tuck and glue some flourishes from FLOURISH PACK – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTIONCHEESECLOTH GAUZE and CURIOS – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION, under the layers you have created.
  5. Mat photos (7.2 x 9.6 cm) with the dark green sheet from the PAPER PAD – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION with dimensions of 8.3 x 10.9 cm. Rip the remaining park of the sheet in half diagonally and tuck under the central Pink plaster layer. Adhere the photos next to each other in the middle of the layout. Picture 5- When in Rome 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 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.

  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.

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.

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.

IMG_1982

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.

IMG_2061 IMG_2063

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