Merry Christmas with Peppermint Kisses

Hi everyone,

Denise here with my second layout using the lovely Peppermint Kisses Collection IMG_2797 R2B2

In this layout I am focusing on using the Collectables Pack . I love these little packs of die cuts, they are usually the first thing I go to when receiving my box to work with. I love to open the pack and look through them all to see what I can do with them.

I started with a 12 x 12 paper called Minty for my base, then cut down a sheet of Wrapped Up paper next.IMG_2784I painted  a Christmas Tree and a Merry Christmas sentiment from the Wooden Flourishes Pack and left them to dry .

Next i decided on my photo then matted it onto some paper from the Paper Pad and some Crimson Weave Cardstock

I decided to place my photo on the left side of the layout, then decorated around it with lots of die cuts and the wood flourishes.IMG_2797IMG_2797 RBIMG_2785

The die cuts from the Collectables were raised up on Foam Tape to add dimension .

I drew some little dots above the baubles to look like they were hanging down.

Finally I used some of the Curios to decorate in between the die cuts.IMG_2797 R2

I hope you have enjoyed this, I’m loving working with this collection.

Happy scrapping !

Making Memories with Morning Dew

Hello,

Karen here with my first layout using the very pretty Morning Dew collection. There has been great excitement in our household this month as our daughter got engaged and this range was absolutely perfect to document photos of the event. 
Main

For this layout I have used Jade Weave Cardstock, Calming and Exhale papers , 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad, Sticker Book, Collectables, Flourish Pack, Decorative Die Floral Circle Frame, Decorative Die Fern, Decorative Die DIY Flora Peony, Smoke Ink PadA4 Art Foam – Lagoon and Pearls Ice Green.

I started by choosing five words from the Flourish Pack and then heat embossing them with silver pearl embossing powder. I have to admit I did panic a bit when they started to smoke but fortunately they were ok.

I then used an ink pad to colour some of the birds dark grey.

In then went on to try making flowers with some Art Foam and Decorative Die DIY Flora Peony.  I was curious as to how easy these were to make and the answer was very easy!  I started by using the die to cut six large flowers and six small flowers.

IMG_8464

I then inked the edges with KaiserInk Pad in Sea Breeze.

IMG_8472

To give them some shape I followed the instructions here.  I was really pleased with the final result.

IMG_8474

I started by cutting .25in from the bottom and one side of the Calming paper and .75 in from the bottom and one side of the Exhale paper.  I mounted the Calming onto my Jade Weave Cardstock and the Exhale onto the centre of this.

I then cut two pieces of paper, from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad to 6.5ins x 4.5ins and added them to the top of my page at a slight angle.  I added a piece of turquoise tissue on top of this. I cut two die cuts using the Decorative Die Floral Circle Frame and a scrap of white card. I added my photos, leaving room to tuck the die cuts underneath.

IMG_8484
I added flowers and leaves from the Flourish Pack and two inked birds to each top corner and flowers and leaves to the centre of the photos. I chose two butterflies from the  Collectables pack.

IMG_8481

Next, I arranged my heat embossed words across the page, underneath my photos.  I added three of my foam flowers to the centre bottom of my page and cut two Decorative Die Fern leaves from a sheet of paper from the  6.5 x 6.5 paper pad.

IMG_8482

Finally I used one of the stickers from the Sticker Book for my title.

I am pleased with how shiny my heat embossed flourishes came out and especially pleased with my foam flowers, which I shall certainly be making again.  If you have been inspired by these, the dies for the peony and other flower shapes can be found hereIMG_8483

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

I hope you have enjoyed reading how to create this quick and easy but effective layout. Potentially I have inspired you to start using up some of those paper pads?

Enjoy the Journey!

Exploding Box with Rosabella

Hello,
Karen here with my last project using the beautiful Rosabella collection. I have made a hexagonal exploding box and am thrilled with the results.  Be warned this post is very photo heavy.

IMG_5903

For this project I have used Coal cardstock (4 sheets),  6.5 x 6.5 paper pad, Collectables, Clear Stamps, Wooden Flourishes, Decorative Die – Rose and Leaves, Kaiserink Pad – Licorice and paper blooms in Black and Dusty Pink.

I cut my box from Coal cardstock on my Silhouette from a design I had made several years ago but there is a tutorial for making a similar box here.  Once I had made my box I and lid I used papers from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad to cover the top of the lid, base of the bottom and the pages.

IMG_5907

I then used some more pages from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad to stamp the lace pattern from the Clear Stamps set, using Kaiserink Pad – Licorice , and used these to cover the sides of my lid.IMG_5905

I decorated my pages with tags and sentiments from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad and flowers from the Collectables pack.
IMG_5908
IMG_5909 IMG_5910 IMG_5911 IMG_5912 IMG_5913 IMG_5914 IMG_5915 IMG_5916

I used the Clear Stamps and Kaiserink Pad – Licorice  to stamp some butterflies and added them on strips of acetate to the bottom of my box and then decorated with Black and Dusty Pink paper blooms, I used the Decorative Die – Rose and Leaves to cut leaves from 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad and tucked these around the flowers .

IMG_5917

Finally, I used more die cut leaves and Black and Dusty Pink paper blooms to decorate the top of the lid adding Wooden Flourishes to finish off.

I loved making this and am going to add photos of my daughter as a Mother’s Day present for my mother-in-law.

See you again next month

Time to Sparkle with Christmas Jewel

Hello everyone,

Denise here with a layout using the beautifully different Christmas Jewel Kaisercraft Collection.

039AI cut a star out using my cutting machine but you can easily find one on the internet as a template, from Coconut Weave Kaisercard.

Next, I decided to add some stitching around the star. I used a pokey tool and piercing ruler, but you can also use a Sew Easy Tool.

009It’s very therapeutic sitting sewing. Once this was done I used another piece of Coconut Weave as my base then cut down the gorgeously glittery Ornate Garland paper to 11.5 x 11.5 inches and placed this on the card.

I placed the star on to the paper with some foam tape.

My photo was mounted on some papers from the 6.5 x6.5  paper pad.

CroppedI used some die cuts from the Collectables as embellishments too.

I also used some of the wooden flourishes, some I painted lilac and some gold.

flourish-pack-gardenI had some snowflakes in my stash and dotted them around the layout topped with some rhinestones. 

The team will be back with much more inspiration very soon!

Cherish This Moment with High Tea

 

Hello everyone,

Denise here with my first project using the fabulous High Tea Kaisercraft collection.

117We were asked to feature the rubber stamps this month so as soon as I saw the gorgeous little flowers on the Floral Wallpaper stamp, I decided to use them on the background.

I started off with Coconut Weave Kaisercard as my base. I mounted the stamp onto an acrylic block, then lightly tapped some Versamark ink onto it.

017

018I stamped this onto the card, then sprinkled some glittery pink embossing powder over it

019

020Then it was time to heat gun it so it melted and  turned into a gorgeous glittery flower pattern.

102I then took some Kaisermist in Pink and flicked over the page.

024I added some border stickers to the bottom and top of the page from the sticker sheet. Next I mounted my photo onto some white card and placed in the middle.

117 (2)I fussy cut some flowers from the 6.5 x6.5 paper pad and used some of the shaped borders to embellish together with some of the die cuts  from the Collectables Pack.

I also used some flowers from the flourish pack – I painted one pink and one green

106Lastly I took some Metallic Hemp Cord in Gold, split the gold out then wrapped it into a loose circle then tucked it behind the photo.111I have really enjoyed making this and can’t wait to move on to my next project, be back soon and thank you for visiting !

Cards with Silent Night

Hello everyone,

Denise here with two cards using the amazing Silent Night Kaisercraft Collection

denise-20161011

The first card was made using a white 7×7 card. I matted some Forest Weave Kaisercard onto the card then matted some papers from the 6.5 x6.5  paper pad, one being a beautiful embossed paper.

I used Aged Mahogany Distress Ink to ink around the edges of the script paper.

Next I stamped and die cut poinsettia leaves and layered them together. I used some die cuts from the Collectables Pack as my focal points on the front – then used some Kaiser varnish to coat a wooden star and before it was dry sprinkled some glitter over -then placed it on the top right of the card. I layered the collectables in the middle and placed the poinsettias either side .

The next card  was made using the rest of the Forest Weave cardstock which was 6 x 12.

003I folded it in half then folded the front in half to make an easel card.

I used a square of the same card measuring 6 x 6 to decorate as the front.

One of the papers from the paper pad was used as the base of the easel and to cover the front. Some more of the collectables were used as the focal point. These were mounted on foam tape.

I highlighted some of the elements with dries clear glue and Stickles Glitter.

004

006Finally I drew around the edges with a black glitter kaiserpen.

I had great fun creating these cards as have all the team using the amazing collections this month.
