Favourite Day with Native Breeze

Hello, Karen here with my third page using Native Breeze.  I was particularly struck by the gorgeous Sundown paper in this range and wanted to use it to showcase a photo of my daughter and her partner, when they got engaged in Italy on a beach at sunset.

Favourite Day

I started by trimming 5ins from the top and .5 in from the right of the Sundown paper. I then stuck this to the top of a piece of Shadow Weave Kaisercard leaving a .25 border at the top and both sides.

Next I tore 4 in piece of the reverse of Eucalyptus paper, vertically – to give it an uneven top, trimmed .5 in from one side and added to the bottom of my page to give the illusion of a landscape similar to that of my chosen photo.

I double mounted my photo onto two pieces of paper taken from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad and added this to my page, slightly overlapping the torn piece at the bottom.

At the top right of my photo I tucked a phrase from the  Southern Sky paper with a ticket phrase from the Collectables Pack at the top right and bottom left of the  Southern Sky phrase.

Under my photo I placed two border stickers, a large circular phrase sticker and seven pennant stickers in an arc – all from the Sticker Book.

The cluster at the top left of my photo was made up of leaves, flowers and birds, from the Collectables Pack, along with a flower cut from Banksia Bouquet paper and two fern leaves, die cut using a die similar to this one and a piece of Eucalyptus paper .

My title ‘Favourite Day’, also from the Collectables Pack was added to the bottom left of my photo and as a final flourish I added a Rose Pearl to each of the banner stickers.

This was the perfect paper for the perfect photo.

Walking in a Winter Wonderland with Wonderland

Hi everyone,

Denise here with my final project using the beautiful Wonderland collection

IMG_4579 resize banner

I started by using the special Advent Foil Paper . I couldn’t decide whether to cut the squares  out or to leave them all together. I decided they kind of told a story all together so I split the frame away first. I cut a piece of Coconut Weave card down by half an inch on two adjacent sides,then used a Sew Easy stitch piercer around the frame,then stitched with smokey green thread.IMG_4563

Next, I sprayed some Aqua Kaisermist over the white card,then adhered the card onto the paper frame,then added the foil paper square on to the card.

I matted my photos on to some white card and placed them in the middle of the layout.

Some die cuts from the Collectables pack were added to some of the squares and mounted on to foam tape to add dimension.IMG_4585

I also used lots of items from the Sticker Pad and Sticker Sheet to embellish around the layout as well.IMG_4579 (2)

I added some little aqua rhinestones on to the trees on the layout for some added bling.

I hope you enjoyed the projects as much as I have enjoyed making them!

Happy scrapping !

Believe in the Magic with Wonderland

Hi everyone,

Denise here with my second layout using the Wonderland Kaisercraft Collection.

IMG_4435resizedbanner

I started off by using a sheet of Frost paper for the base of my layout. Next I took a sheet of Powder Blue  card stock which I cut down to 11.5 x 11.5 inches. I pierced around the layout then stitched with some navy thread.

Next I took some sheets from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad, then embossed them with the Snowflake embossing folder

I spritzed the whole white card with some teal and denim Kaiserrmist then flicked some white over the top together with some Scattered Straw distress ink.

I cut the papers into strips then laid them across the middle in a random order, then placed my photo on top which was matted using paper from the 6.5 x 6.5 pad. I then adhered this to the background.

Time to embellish now! I used lots of snowflake and star stickers from the sticker pad

and die cuts from the Collectables PackIMG_4429IMG_4431IMG_4439

Some of these were mounted on foam tape.

Finally I dotted a few silver gems on to the snowflakes .

I am loving this collection and will be back soon with another project.

Happy crafting !

Believe In The Magic Of Christmas with Sparkle

Hello,

Karen here with my first post for September and where has this year gone to?  This month I have the first of Kaisercraft’s Christmas collections to work with and it is the totally stunning Sparkle collection which is filled with pinks, black and rose gold foiling.  Every sheet of paper in this collection is either glittered or foiled.

If you would like to see some of the collection I have a YouTube video here which shows the beautiful items I had in my Merly Impressions delivery.

I wanted to focus on the use the Sparkle Clear Stamp Set for this page and so stamped the large tree six times, using black ink, onto a page from the 6.5 x 6.5 pad,  I chose the one with gold spots as I thought that would look as though the trees had baubles on. I cut the trees out and as I wanted to make the trees 3d I scored and folded each tree along the centre and then adhered them together – see photo below .

I then cut .25in from the top and left of a piece of Radiance paper and added to some Licorice card.

I matted a 5in x 7in photo onto a piece of Glistening and then onto a piece of Auroral (black side). I adhered this to my page with foam dots, ensuring that I left room to tuck elements underneath.  I clustered flowers cut from Glint, Baubles and trees from the Collectables pack, tags and borders from the 6.5 x 6.5 pad around my photo along with the two 3d trees.

I also added a phrase from the Sticker pad and placed a Champagne rhinestone in the centre of each of the snowflakes on the scalloped border.

To finish my page I stamped the small trees, from the Sparkle Clear Stamp Set, several times onto the same paper as I had used for the large trees.  Then I snipped off the trunks, turned them upside down and used them as pennants for the bunting at the top of my page.  I finished by adding a Dusty Pink paper bloom between each of the pennants.

I can hardly wait, for later this month, to show you what else I have made with this gorgeous range.
