Silly Selfie with Ubud Dreams

Good morning everyone,

Denise here with another project, a layout this time using the amazing Ubud Dreams Kaisercraft Collection.

104I loved some of the the wording die cuts in the Collectables pack this month and have had some silly photos of me for a while, so decided to make a page using one of them. It’s nice to scrapbook personal things once in a while isn’t it?

I started off by using the gorgeously detailed Kemala paper. I cut the middle out so making a frame and backed this with some Coconut Weave Kaisercard. Next I cut down a piece of Seafoam Kaisercard to 10.5 inches and placed it on the layout.

I  took another piece of Coconut Weave Kaisercard, cut it down to 10.25 inches and used a Punch around the Page to go round the outside edges and then stuck it on to the Seafoam card.

102I used some of the white card to mat my photo then placed it onto the layout on the left hand side towards the top and tucked some half doilies at each side. ( Always handy to have some doilies in your stash! )

Next it was time to use lots of Collectables to embellish the layout- some of these were as always with me raised up using foam tape.

098I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project – there will be lots more inspiration from the team very soon!

Christmas Cards with a bit of Sparkle

Hello everyone,

Denise here with my last project using the amazingly glittery Glisten Kaisercraft Collection

photo-24-11-2016-14-57-07-2 photo-24-11-2016-14-57-21-2I had a free choice to do whatever I liked this time so I decided to make two cards,one gold tones and one silver tones.

I started off with the wooden snowflakes. In  order to make them a bit sparkly I used some gold embossing powder and heat embossed them to make them ‘glisten’ photo-23-11-2016-14-00-16 photo-23-11-2016-14-05-27I then cut some squares of various papers from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad for mats and layers on my card – I distressed the edges of the papers with I threaded some Gold Metallic Hemp Cord through the holes in the snowflakes.

I used half a Gold Doily in between the layers of papers at the side.

Next I chose a sentiment from one of the papers Incandescent Foil  and matted it onto some of the amazingly sparkly Gold Glitter put it all together I wrapped the twine over the back of the layered paper and secured with double sided tape on the back and a gold bow was added.

I used a giant snowflake from the Collectables Pack, added some glue then sprinkled glitter over to make it sparkle.

Finally some silver gems were added to finish off at the top and bottom.

Thanks for popping over and do come back soon to see some more inspiration from the team.

Silver Glisten Collection Scrapbook Layout


Here is a scrapbook layout using the very pretty Glisten Kaisercraft collection with lots of fussy cutting, rhinestones, wooden flourishes and some lucky dip items too.imageFirstly I used a sheet of Coconut weave cardstock and painted it all over with a white crackle paint. Once it was dry I took the Shimmering Glitter Paper that is just oozing glimmer and glitz and pretty snowflakes. I wanted a margin around the edges so I cut it down to a 10″ square and layered it to the cardstock. Then, just to add a little more glamour (!)  I then took a Tim Holtz layering stencil and added a few blue glimmer paste stars.

close-up-bottom-silver-loI knew I also wanted to do some fussy cutting of the snowflakes so I cut a panel from the Shimmering Glitter Paper and fussy cut the snowflakes from it. I then took the photograph and matted it on the awesome Platinum Glitter card to make it pop and used it to cover the gutted panel from the background paper. The great thing about this glitter card is the fact it is a great weight and, best of all, the glitter doesn’t come off!  I then took another piece of the glitter card and cut a 3″ x  8″ rectangle and  punched more snowflakes from the right hand edge. I then added a full length strip of pretty, decorative, lace.

I then layered some silver paper doilies beneath the photo mat and started adding the fussy cut snowflakes. I also took some wooden snowflakes from the Flourish Pack and heat embossed them with Silver UTEE. I finally added a small cluster of the matching elements in the bottom left hand corner and finished the whole layout with additional snowflakes, glittery touches, pearls, white pom poms and silver rhinestones together with a ready made silver ‘Happy Christmas’ title.

Celebrate the Season with Glisten

Hello everyone,

Well the countdown to you know what seems to be happening so it was lovely to create a Christmas layout with the fabulous Glisten Kaisercraft Collection.

053I was really having a problem choosing which papers to use as they are all so gorgeous and luxurious.

I started off using Gleaming foil paper as my base. I gutted it so there was a one inch frame left then cut Vanilla Weave Kaisercard down to mat over the frame.

042I then used some Texture Paste through a Tim Holtz Crackle layering stencil  to add some texture at the corners.

Once this was dry I cut down  some of the papers from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad to add across the middle, using a bauble one to mat my photo.

044There are some amazing co -ordinating  glittery products to go with this collection, one of them being the Gold Doilies and one of them being the yummy Golden Glitter Cardstock 

I used one of the doilies by cutting it in half then tucking the two halves behind the paper mats and indulged myself with the glitter cardstock by die cutting some reindeer and swirls to embellish the layout

050048I used some of the die cuts and words from the Collectables Pack to layer up and embellish round the edges and corners


049These were all layered up with Foam Tape – something I could absolutely not live without !

Finally I used a tag from the collecatbles pack at the top left with some of the gorgeous new Metallic Hemp Cord through it.

047I really hope you’ve enjoyed this project as it was a pleasure to create and this is a really inspiring  collection.
