Hello Kaisercrafters, Alicia here with you today!  I’m happy to be sharing some Cards, Beyond the Page Projects and a Layout using the two gorgeous Kaisercraft collections for the month of July, Mademoiselle and Bon Appetite.

Project One – “Awesome Little Helper” Layout

I had a lovely time making this fresh and modern layout using the Bon Appetit collection.  It is featuring my little helper in the Kitchen.

I pin so many gorgeous layouts on Pinterest (Follow me here if you love pinning cards and layouts too!) and I realised just recently that so many of them have white backgrounds.  I haven’t done a Layout with a white background in ages so I thought I would give it a go with this collection.  I chose a monochromatic colour scheme with bright red highlights.

I filmed a process video for this Layout that you might be interested in watching.

The Mademoiselle collection really inspired the card maker inside of me and I had a lovely time making cards with these gorgeous papers.  This collection is full of beautiful flowers and butterflies, just perfect for making some lovely cards for your card stash.

Project Two – Friendship Card

I had a lovely time arranging a big cluster of flowers in the centre of this card.  I’m saving this card to send to a special friend.

Project Three – A Trio of Mini Note Cards

I made a little trio of small note cards.  These would be perfect for a little gift tag to decorate a present.  This collection has a lovely vintage feel to it.  The Kaisercraft cream lace goes perfectly with the colours in the papers and I have teamed it with some Kaisercraft organza ribbon and mini paper blooms.

Project Four – Butterfly Birthday Card

For a more modern look I cut a large butterfly from the collection and stamped the Butterfly background stamp a couple of times to make some more butterflies.  I used corrugated card  as the background paper with some strips of paper and swirls layered over the top.

I placed some mounting tape in between the three layers of the butterfly to keep the wings nicely elevated.

I added some twine and ribbon and mini paper blooms on the top of the layered butterfly.

Project Five – Decorated Birthday Frame

I have made several of these little frames in the past, using different collections of Kaisercraft papers, and I just love how quickly and easily they go together to make a nice gift for someone.  This one I have made as a birthday gift for my Aunty who is celebrating a significant milestone this month.
