“Hexagon Frames” by Collette Mitrega

I have been wanting to use those little photos you get with the school photos for years and when I saw this paper range I knew what I wanted to do. Just love the ‘Hexagon Frames’ from Kaisercraft  and I love to see how my boy has changed over the years. In fact, I will be buying another pack of frames (they come in a pack of five and are really great value!) to fill in the missing years. Can’t wait to get this up on the wall at home….Jack is not so sure!!!!

Thursday Tip with Anna

Hello everyone, Anna here.

Today, I would like to share with you, one of my favourite tips. It is a bit like mixed media, but you do not need any special tools. Just Kaisercraft papers pad and inks.

Tuesday Tip_1Did you know that the paper pad always contains some special, foiled sheets? I love them!

Tuesday Tip_2Sometimes I do not like a certain colour. What if the colour is too dark? Lighten it :-)

Tuesday Tip_3Rub in the paper, the ink of a different colour, using sponges. Then wipe off the excess ink from  foiled elements with a tissue.

Tuesday Tip_4So, you have a paper in a different colour…

Tuesday Tip_5still beautifully foiled.

Tuesday Tip_6And what if the lack of colours? Colour it!

Tuesday Tip_7Rub unevenly coloured inks on paper…

Tuesday Tip_8Then wipe off the excess ink from  foiled elements with a tissue.

Tuesday Tip_9I made a card, using my “new”, beautiful paper. Do you believe that this is a paper from a collection called Blue Bay?

Tuesday Tip_10Hugs, Anna

“Valentines Box” by Collette Mitrega

These ‘exploding gift box cards’ are really not so hard to do. Simply take a sheet of kaiser card and cut so it is 12″ x 12″. Score at 4″ and 8″ , rotate and score again so you end up with score lines that look like ‘tic tac toe’! Cut out each corner and that is your bottom base. Decorate as desired. For the lid cut a piece of KaiserCard 7″ x 7″ and score at 1 7/16″ on all sides. Slit each corner up to the inner score line, fold and adhere to form your lid. If you have problems let me know and I will do a video for you.

I stuck the little red hearts from the sticker sheet onto the stems from the Kaisercraft blooms!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I love to glitter my flowers! I simply spray with spray adhesive and sprinkle from up high with fine glitter. Most improtantly I fix the glitter with a spray fixative so it does not get everywhere!

Other Products used: fence punch; velvet ribbon, satin ribbon.

“Storage Crate” by Collette Mitrega

This is such a versatile inexpensive little storage crate from Kaisercraft that is both useful and beautiful! I am using this little guy to store my acrylic paint tubes; I know it is ‘lavish’ to store paints in but it kinda makes me feel good to have ‘pretty’ around me!

I stuck my papers on with Kaisercrafts Glaze Paste. It was the first time I have used it and I was impressed. Much cheaper than similar products out there and it acts as an adhesive and a sealer. It dries clear and has a lovely satin finish. Go try it!
