Tuesdays Tip with Maggie Armstrong

Happy Tuesday to you all!  It’s a beautiful spring day here in New Zealand with the promise of summer right around the corner!

I am excited to show you a cool little technique today – using Kaisercraft inks to colour dry texture paste.

Start by selecting your stencil of choice and a good quality texture paste.  Add the paste to your project in the normal way.  Here I am using the Lace Doily 12 inch template by Kaisercraft – one of my favourites!

apply paste

Remove the stencil and let the texture paste dry – either naturally or with a little help from a heat gun!

Next, choose the inks you want to colour with.  I used 2 Kaisercraft Inks on this project – IP725 Petal Pink and IP722 Red Gum.  Because I wanted a lovely vignette look – where one colour fades into the next, I made sure that the inks belonged to the same colour group.  So my vignette would be a burgundy red fading away into pale pink.

ink setup

Now, the best way to do this next step is with your fingers!  You can use a little cotton bud if you wish but it is harder to blend.  I started by applying Petal Pink to the doily pattern, gently rubbing it on.  Always start with the palest colours and work your way up to the darker colours.  And remember  – build the colour up as you go.  It’s easy to put more on but nigh impossible to remove it once you add too much!

add pale ink

Kaisercraft Inks are so deliciously juicy – which makes them really easy to work with.The Red Gum ink was added next, again blending with your finger.  This colour gave a beautiful definition to the pattern.

add red gum ink

Once you have finished applying the colour, you may want to gently apply a neutral colour – .e.g. Vintage to hide any stark white areas that you may have missed.  In this case, it helped to tone everything into a more vintage look.

Here are some pictures of the finished project – a heritage layout using Kaisercraft Rustic Harmony Collection.

Thanks for stopping by!  And I hope you get your Kaisercraft Inks out to experiment with this technique!

“My Festive Activities” by Collette

I did not want a traditional Christmas Countdown so this year I am building my festive ‘excitement’ in a different way. Twenty five different activities that I can choose from, one a day! Once I have completed my daily activity, I can turn over my tag to enjoy a different view on “My Festive Activities Board”.

Hmmmm, which one first??

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

These are the activities I have chosen, I will choose one each day and flip the tag over ….

Paper Roses with Jess from The Eclectic Creative Studio

I love the new Tropical Punch range from Kaisercraft and it’s a perfect time to start getting crafty and trying new ideas, now that the weather is warming and the end of year school holidays are fast approaching. I thought I’d share with you a really simple paper folding (or rolling) craft that creates amazing paper roses and look like they’d take hours and hours, but I promise you – they don’t. I have used this idea for a visual merchandising and styling job and it had immediate impact and the client was thrilled.

paper_rose_closeup

 

PAPER ROSES

This is a great D.I.Y that you could use for party decorations, gift wrapping toppers, tablescapes and event styling or create a garland by repeating the steps with different sizes. This is also a craft you can get the Kids ages 10+ involved and you can help them with the trickier bits – follow these steps and images to create your very own Paper Roses!

I have used the Tropical Punch – Cocktail paper available here And the fantastic part of using this Kaisercraft Paper is that is has beautiful contrasting patterns and colours on both sides, perfect for this job!

Materials:

12 x 12 Craft Paper – not too thick as this makes folding a little trickier, but still is achievable. (10-15 sheets is used for one large rose)

Scissors

Pencil

Clear cello-tape

Colour coordinated paper straw or wire

Step 1. Create A Heart Template

I freehand drew a heart shape, that took up most of the sheet of Kaisercraft Paper and this forms a template that you can use to replicate. It doesn’t have to be perfect, this shape forms the main petals of the rose. Trace and cut out x12 love hearts.

paper-rose-heart-template

Step 2. Create Smaller Petals

You need to create some smaller petals for the inside of the rose. Just simply cut the heart in two, like the image – straight down the centre. Cut two hearts in half, so you have a total of 4 mini petals.

Small-paper-petals

Step 3. Get rolling!

To form the curves of the rose petal, you need to roll the edges of the petals of the heart and the small petals too – I used the paper straw I will be using as the stem to help roll the paper. The rolled edges go on the outside of the rose, so for instance with this roll the tropical print will be seen on the outside and the chevron print on the inside of the rose. I changed up my rolling direction so I have a variety of the two patterns seen on the rose. View the first image to see what I mean.

roll-corners-paper-flowers

Step 4. Secure The Small Petals To The Stem.

Grab your 4 small petals – we are going to secure these, one at a time, to the straw or wire which forms the inside of the rose. With the paper roll facing outwards, like you did in step 3, grab the petal and gently roll around the straw and securing with clear cello-tape. This is probably the most trickiest part, and again, it doesn’t have to be perfect – just ensure it is tightly rolled, like the image and secured well.

first-fold-paper-rose

Step 5. Continue The Process

Wrap the remaining 3 small petals around each other and it will start to look like this. Secure each petal with clear cello-tape at the base of the stem/straw.

middle-fold-paper-rose

Step 6. Time For The Large Petal Hearts

Now it’s time to start securing the larger hearts which form the main structure of the paper rose. It can be fiddly but hold the mini petal structure in your hands and wrap the large heart petal around this structure – again, with paper folds facing out. Now you will notice that you get different patterns coming through depending upon the direction you have folded the edges. With each large petal secure with clear cello-tape, maintaining a firm hold so the rose keeps tight and secure.

paper_rose_large-petal

Step 7. Repeat The Steps

Repeat the steps going around the structure in a clockwise direction and fill them where petals are needed. You will notice every time you secure each petal, you will be taping a little bit further up the stem, to allow for the bulk of the petals, but that’s ok – it gives you the fullness of the flower structure that you are after. This is what you are aiming for it to look like.

paper_rose_side

Step 8. Ta Da! You Have A Giant Paper Rose!

If you would like to create smaller paper roses, all you have to do is change the size of the heart template as this dictates the size of the flower. Try fitting two hearts onto one sheet of 12 x 12 craft paper – these are super cute and look gorgeous in contrast with the larger ones. And, depending on what pattern paper you use will achieve a different look – it is completely up to your imagination.

paper_rose_finished

Rose_desk

If you wish to secure the roses to a structure, then instead of using a paper straw for the stem, use floristry wire. I created a garland using two different sizes of paper roses and used wire instead so it could secure easily to the structure. Here is an image to give you inspiration!

Tip with Rachael Funnell – Create acetate shapes

Hi there!

 Rachael with you for this week’s Tuesday tip…..

Today I’m sharing with you how I created a couple of acetate pieces that I have added to these layouts…..DSC_0114 - Copy DSC_0027 - Copy

You will need

DSC_0018 - Copy

* Rustic Harmony Clear stamps.

* A transparent sheet (the backing sheet from the clear stamp set) or if you don’t want to do use this, a piece of acetate.

* Acrylic block for the stamps.

* Stazon black ink (I found that stazon ink was the best to work with in this case has a little bit of a tackiness to it, so less of a chance to sear & dried very quickly. while some of the other inks didn’t even dry!)

* A pair of scissors for fussy cutting.

* Kaisercraft craft glue

——————————–

Ink the butterfly from the Rusty Harmony stamp set & stamp a couple of the butterflies, repeat this with the “Live a beautiful life” stamp….

DSC_0022 - Copy

If you smear or just not happy how it came out, mentholated spirits is great just wipe it away & start again!

Once dried fussy cut out….  Now they are ready to add to your project using Kaisercraft – craft glue ….DSC_0026 - Copy

October Challenge #2

octoberchallenge_banner

We were inspired this week to create a challenge that was light hearted and fun! The inspiration came from this photo that we saw of the lovely Anita Bownds’ cat hanging out in a pizza box in the scrap room!!

hangingout

So….we thought that it would be fun if this weeks challenge was to base your work around a funny photo or a funny moment in your life. It can be anything that you like (layout, card, off the page etc)

We can’t wait to see what you come up with :)

Have a great weekend x

Wednesday Tip with Linda Thompson – Paint Sprays

Hello everyone Linda T here with you, today is my turn to share with you a tip using a Kaisercraft product.

I’m going to show you how to create your own sprays using the Kaisercolour paints.

You will need

Kaisercolour paints in your chosen colours / Spray bottles enough for each colour paint you have chosen / something to work on I have chosen a small canvas / a pack of collectables / paper blooms / large print stamp

IMG_8772 copy

Now to get started

Start by adding a small amount of paint to each of the spray bottles and add some warm water to fill them, give them a shake to mix the paint. Tip don’t add to much paint as it can clog the spray nozzle.

IMG_8774 copy

Then the fun begins start by spraying each colour leaving out the darkest colour, spray them close to your project and let the paint run.

IMG_8775 copy IMG_8776 copy

You can then add a few more sprays here and there to add a bit more colour until you are happy.

IMG_8777 copy

Next taking your stamp and a paint brush, brush on some of the spray, this works better with large print stamps, then stamp your project.

IMG_8778 copy

I used 2 colours to stamp with.

IMG_8779 copy

Now time to use your darkest colour. Take the top of the bottle and flick/shake the lid over your project to create small splatters.

IMG_8780 copy

Once my project was dry I found the colours a little to bold for my liking so I painted on a very light coat of gesso.

IMG_1660 copy IMG_1662 copy

You can even spray your flowers to match.

IMG_1664 copy IMG_1666 copy

Here I have even sprayed the wood flourish.

IMG_1668 copy IMG_1670 copy

That’s all from me hope you have enjoyed my Kaisercraft Wednesday Tip.

YULETIDE – Naomi

‘Christmas is the most wonderful time of year’

This year I wanted to make a tag Christmas display and Kaiser of course came to the rescue with this magic range..

For this you will need

6 large luggage tags, 2 large resin frames, a tree, some satin binding ribbon, glitter, glue, bells

Yuletide 6X6 paper pad PP948, 2 packets of Collectables CT805, 3 pieces of  cream card stock, gold ink pad. Wooden clock FL352

DSCN3006

DSCN3007 DSCN3009 DSCN3011DSCN3012 DSCN3014

To make snow find a thick glue that dries clear and mix in a course clear glitter… instant snow. Instant addiction to cover everything in snow – beware…

DSCN3015 DSCN3016 DSCN3017

Remember to foam dot your collectables paper tole style.

DSCN3020

age and connect all the tags with a quick rub of gold ink and a little spattering of snow…

The entire piece was framed in an A3 certificate frame with the glass removed…

Yuletide project take two – Naomi

A slightly smaller wall art project….

Using some of the left over collectables CT805, 12×12 paper, wooden 5 photo frame SB2284, crackle stamp CS876

DSCN2654

Paint your frame white and then use the crackled paint texture stamp with gold ink to age and distress it vintage shabby chic style….

DSCN2656 DSCN2655

I used a window frame die and backed it with acetate and popped it out on foam dots to make it stand out from the frame and fussy cut santa out of the 12X12 paper so that he appeared to be looking out the window.

DSCN2651 DSCN2650

So there we have 2 projects that are sure to set the magic mood of christmas in…

Basecoat – Naomi

This range is a favourite…. the colours are so rich and vibrant and of course there is woodgrain and I love me some woodgrain..

Sometimes you need to think outside the box to make a paper work for you… I loved the design of this paper  (P1605 Bells) but I really didn’t want it so top heavy and I wanted the beautiful design to mimic a mantel piece at christmas… so this is what I did.

PS excuse the messy work area…. that is how I roll…sorry :)

DSCN3031 DSCN3032 DSCN3033

Lastly use the strip at the bottom to hide the paper join. love those little strips.

DSCN3034

done how easy is that… try it. It gives a whole new paper design.

Tuesday Tip with Collette – The Kaisercraft Paper Trimmer

I don’t know about you, but my paper trimmer is my most used item and I love the Kaisercraft Paper Trimmer for many reasons. Today I want to share with you some of the basic and some of the more ‘precise’  ways that I use my trimmer.

I have two videos for you, the first introduces the Kaisercraft Paper Trimmer and shows some of the basic features. The second looks at some of the more ‘precise’ ways of using the trimmer as I make a wonderful and very easy ‘SWING CARD’.

So go grab a coffee, sit back and….enjoy!

Collette

Part One…….an introduction

 

Part Two…..precise cutting & scoring and the ‘Swing Card’.

Tuesday Tip with Naomi and Kaiser Fusion

Hey you,

It is naomi and I thought I would share a little ‘Fusion’ love with you. Can I tell you I am no expert but gosh these are so much fun to use… and they come in so many pretty colours.

I am a beginner, self taught through accidents and mistakes but I am going to show you how to complete a  layout with the bare basics that you most likely have in you scrap stash.

DSCN2942

Firstly you will need 2 colours that compliment each other, I chose a peacock A06, and Cherry R11 you will also need a Black E02 and some Alcohol blending fluid. You will also need White Cardstock, Black card stock, a resin frame, multiple background stamps, clear rhinestones, white ribbon, white flowers, foam alphabet.

Step one.. Colour Resin

DSCN2928

I roughly coloured a white resin shape in the peacock colour and then evened it out with a brush pen that had alcohol solution inside… that way I could age it and darken areas. The alcohol solution bleaches the colour out and you can drag it to other areas that you couldn’t get the nib of the fusion ingot the grooves

Step two…. colour ribbon

DSCN2929

I will only be buying white ribbon now…. I  can exactly match my ribbon now to my layout out… scribble away and it also creates a nice  patterned on the paper underneath.

Step three… white flowers to cherry flowers

DSCN2936

I coloured the flower and then on a piece of acetate I scribbled lots of cherry and added the alcohol solution to make a watery runny solution that was easier to apply to the flower

Step four….Stamping with fusions

DSCN2935

Colour in the stamp….. and stamp. You don’t have to be too particular with the colouring if you want a more water colour feel to the stamp, mist it with some alcohol solution in a mini mister. I used a black and peacock here and misted.

I think people forget that you can stamp with them just as effectively as you can colour a stamped item in..

I then stamped multiple backgrounds to chop up

DSCN2930

DSCN2934

the pieces were chopped up to form a chevron boarder for the bottom of the page

Step five… distressed fusions

scribble some colour on to the bottom of an applicator and then a few drops of alcohol solution and apply to paper in a circular motion until the colour no longer comes out… reactive it again with more solution… so cool you can create some very cool watercolour effects

DSCN2933

I then stamped the butterfly in black and fussy cut around the outside.

step 6… colour foam

This is possibly my most favourite thing to do… add colour and take it away subtly. I kid you not very very addictive and I will be using this again and again to add texture and patterns to boring old letters… It works on chipboard letters and also card stock letters.

colour with fusions

DSCN2945

Apply alcohol solution to the stamp 

DSCN2946

Press stamp into coloured letter..

DSCN2947

The pattern is bleached out of the lettering… so cool.

DSCN2948

 Step Seven…. Colour the rhinestones.

DSCN2938

 Make your layout…..

DSCN2941

 So with three pens and multiple kaiser background stamps  you can create a perfectly co-ordinated layout  I will be challenging myself to use more of these Fusion pens again it was really fun learning new techniques

Stamps used Script CS752 I Textured Gingham CS190 I Textured Morrocco CS191 I  Textured Cheveron CS149 I  Chicken Wire CS836 I Woodgrain CS 837

Thanks for popping in this tuesday and I hope you break out some fusion into your layouts shortly…

Tuesday Tip by Mistra Hoolahan – Watercolour ‘Paints’

IMG_1939

When I used the Kaiser Inks for the first time, I noticed how wonderfully ‘juicy’ they were.  Juicy inks to me, mean fun!  I couldn’t wait to see how well they’d react with water and I was delighted to find they created a perfect watercolour ‘paint’.

Today I’m going to share with you how I created the simple stamped background on the card.  My scrap table now is glass… which is very handy for mixed media messy work!  You could use a craft sheet for this, or a glass cutting board. Either will work well.

IMG_1888

First I simply pressed the ink pad directly onto the glass…

IMG_1889

…and then spritz with some water to activate and thin the ink pigments. This creates a watercolour palette to work with.  You can blend the colours, add more water, add more ink… just as you would for true watercolour paints.

IMG_1890

Next I stamped my chosen image onto white cardstock. Use a quick drying permanent ink for this so you don’t need to worry about the ink bleeding after adding water.

IMG_1891

And next I simply added a colour wash over the image.  I started with the lighter tones and added and blended the darker tones afterwards.

IMG_1892

Mist with water between colours to help them blend a little more easily.

IMG_1893 IMG_1894

Once it was finished I tore the image out while wet to create the deckle edged finish.

Once dry, create your card.  Here I have positioned it over a background created with crackle texture paint which was tinted with paint and then smeared over a template, then this was given a watercolour wash with black ink.   Or you could pop this in as a one of a kind embellishment on a layout or project.

IMG_1941

It’s always exciting to discover other uses for products, expanding their versatility!

Tuesday Tip by Michelle Grant – Creating Dimension and Depth

Tuesday Tip By Michelle Grant – Creating Dimension and Depth
Good-Friends-11-by-Michelle

Have you looked at layouts and projects and wonder how do they create all that dimension. It is super easy once it is broken down.
As you can see on the card above everything seems to blend seamlessly together.
It is all about layering and over lapping and using different embellishments.

Now to show you the difference this can make here is the same card with just some paper roses and butterflies, while still pretty it just feels a bit lifeless.
Good-Friends-6-by-Michelle-

Take the same card again with just fussy cut flowers still pretty but a little flat looking.
SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

By simply blending the two and cutting up the fussy cutting flowers and leaves into smaller pieces and breaking apart flowers you can blend the two elements to create lots of dimension.
Good-Friends-5-by-Michelle-
Start with breaking apart a few of the roses, I generally take the bottom one or two layers of the petals off. This gives you a smaller rose bud and flat petals that can peek out under some of the layers or you can scrunch them up to create another flower.

Then cut the fussy cut flowers down into smaller pieces, this gives you control over what you poke out from here and there so you are not tied to the original size & shape and you can overlap them over each other.
Good-Friends-10-by-Michelle

Then to layer all the pieces I use Scrapdots or you could use 3D foam tape and a pva type glue. I like Helmar Tiger grip or 450.

Always start with the biggest pieces and flowers and start with them generally on the bottom of your project. For eg the big orange rose would be too heavy to put on the top corner of the card.
Then to balance the colours try and create a triangle of colour. When adding different colours and embellishments they generally look better in odd numbers.

You can see there are 3 butterflies on there grouped to form a triangle, placing butterflies going in different directions helps to create movement on your project. The bottom butterfly on the orange flower is directing your attention to the 2nd butterfly who is then directing your attention to the tag and 3rd butterfly, therefore drawing your eye across the card.

When I put a cluster together I arrange all the pieces in place and work out where I want them to go before I start sticking down. Start with adhering the larger pieces first then build out from there, poking bits under and over the previous piece.
You don’t need to add glue to the whole embellishment, just to the spots that are getting tucked in, leaving the ends free and poking up is what helps add more dimension.
Good Friends 7 by Michelle Grant
Use 3D foam tape or a piece of cardboard to add dimension to larger pieces.
It is amazing the difference a piece of 3D foam tape can make.
Good-Friends-12-by-Michelle
I stuck the large orange flower down first and built the cluster out from there.
I hope you have enjoyed this tip on creating dimension, if you need something clarified or if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask in the comments below.

how cool is this range,  honestly how cool?

This is definitely going to be a staple ‘go to’ in my stash, I have already bought many of these papers again and also in the big paper pad… sigh.

I have made three layouts with this range for the blog.

Love is a bumpy ride… I love this photo, but it also serves to remind me what many parents know it is a bumpy ride, so hang on.

add extra details without the sewing machine, just a black fine liner. The dotty wash tape acts as another element. Also don’t forget to create layers with foam dots.

Cut your paper down to a 4×6 size and do your journalling on that and chop it up to be long banners, weave some thread around and through the layers.

Tuesday Tip with Linda Eggleton – Altering your paper blooms

Hi Kaisercraft fans…Happy Tuesday to you all :)

It’s Linda here with you today to share a few tips on altering your paper blooms.

The first tip involves the wire stems on the blooms that we generally cut off & throw away.  So you might want to start keeping them for this little technique.

wire 1

You will need some wire stems and a metal awl for this technique. I find that the stems from the mini paper blooms are a bit longer in length, and therefore better to work with.  Shorter stems are still ok though and will give you a variety of different length spirals.

wire 2

Using an awl, or any other long rounded tool that isn’t too thick, twist & wind the wire stems around the awl.

wire 3

Continue winding until the entire length of the stem is wound around in a spiral.

wire 4

You may find that you will need a pair of pliers to pinch down each end of the wire so that it’s curled in under rather than sticking out with sharp edges.  This isn’t absolutely necessary, but will just finish your spirals off nice and neat.

wire 5

Once the full length of the wire is wound around the awl, slide it off the end of the awl and they are now ready to add to your blooms or clusters as little spiral sprigs :)

My next tip is how to alter your paper blooms into a gorgeous 2 toned bloom.

bloom 1

It is best to work with the bigger paper blooms.

First, cut the wire stem off from the back of your bloom.  Then gently pull the bloom apart so that you end up with 2 pieces – the bottom which will be about 2 layers of petals and will form the base of your bloom, and the 2nd piece will be the main centre of the bloom.

bloom 2

They generally come apart without too much difficulty.

Bloom 3

Using the smaller centre of a bloom that you have pulled apart, glue it down to the base section of a coordinating bloom….or you could use a full smaller bloom to add as the centre, as I have done with the pink bloom.

The Olive & Honey blooms I’ve alternated the centre from one to the other so that one has a Honey base and the other has a Honey centre.

Here is a card I’ve created using both of these techniques….

Card 3

Card 1.1

Card 2

I hope you have enjoyed my little tutorial and that I have inspired you to have a go with these techniques on spiralled sprigs & 2 toned blooms.

Enjoy the rest of your day :)

Mistletoe – Naomi

I love a 6×6 paper pad it is something about all those cute little prints that has turned it into something of an addiction…

So how much can you actually get out of a 6 inch paper pad?

Well in a word A lot!

I first started by dividing my pad into equal halves.

The first half I was going to make a 4 inch mini album out of chipboard to celebrate our ‘Elf on a shelf’

kaiseraugust

DSCN2850

The album covers are chipboard cut to a 4.5″ square size and then I cut 25 4″ squares for the pages and then cut out a slightly smaller square out of the patterned paper

then I set about using the scraps to decorate.

DSCN2851 DSCN2854

Products used Kaisercraft Mistletoe 6″ paper pad PP945 I Cardstock Cool White CD601 I CD102- Licorice I Jump rings I CT802  Collectables

the aim of this album is to be relatively flat so that I can keep up the same format in the coming years and have a little basket under the tree to giggle at. The lumps and bumps can also get easily damaged due to handling…

Mistletoe layout – Naomi

so with the other half I decided to do a layout.. A simple patchwork triangle tree design.

DSCN2857 DSCN2858

Products used Kaisercraft Mistletoe 6″ paper pad PP945 I Cardstock Cool White CD601 I CD102- Licorice

Other products Red sequins I silhouette cut file

 and with plenty left over I thought I would collect all the little bits and make a easy card/tag gift set for all those friends of mine that want to make tags but don’t have the time to collect the goodies… Lucky I like to collect them hahahaha

Products used Kaisercraft Mistletoe 6″ paper pad PP945 I Cardstock Cool White CD601 I CD102- Licorice I Kaisercraft scissors I  red dot washi tape I Black Ink I Mistletoe stamp I Rhinestones

So my suggestion is buy that little 6×6 pad and stretch it as far as you can you would be surprised …. I would love to see what you can do with it..

Tuesday Tip with Amanda Baldwin

Tuesday Tip with Amanda Baldwin

Today’s tip is: “Make it a Mini in Minutes!”

Hi Kaisercraft fans, Happy Tuesday!

Amanda here & today I want to share with you the world’s easiest mini album!

It requires only 3 products and makes in minutes!

Here’s your essential must have items:

2014-07-29 14.10.08

Yes, Captured Moments Journal Cards & Printed Tape – so simple!

Here’s how….

2014-07-29 19.12.07Select 5 of the double-sided 4 x 6″ Journal Cards, and arrange into sequence order. Use printed tape (as shown above) to attach front and back covers. Flip over and repeat taping on the inside of the covers too.

2014-07-29 19.16.31

Insert next ‘page’ & attach with the printed tape on both sides. Simple!

2014-07-29 19.15.37

Voila! 5 pages ready to decorate!

2014-07-29 19.17.16

Using the same printed tape technique, attach a few of 3 x 4″ Journal cards . I love the interest the little ‘flaps’ create! Nothings too cute for a mini!

2014-07-29 19.18.15

This 3 x 4″ Journal Card is attached differently so it can ‘hide’ a personalised message or image.

And that’s how to make a Mini in Minutes!

My mini uses the fabulous new Peppermint Swirl Journal Cards, and is all ready to go for this Christmas!The only thing left for you to do is decorate the cover and make the memories!

Here’s my completed cover….

2014-07-29 19.20.45

I decorated mine with some of my gorgeous left over Stickers and Collectables from the new Mistletoe collection. Muslin, ribbon and Paper Blooms: Fire Red complete this cute cover. Perfect!

Told you this was the easiest Mini Album you’ll ever make!

And the best part is that you can mix and match any of your Captured Moments Journal Cards to make a mini!

Hope you’ll give this Mini in Minutes a try! Happy Creating!

Tuesday Tip with Cathy – Altering your pp’s with Gesso

Hi everyone,

This week it’s my turn to share a Tuesday Tip, so I thought I would show you how to alter your bright pp’s a few different ways by softening the colours using gesso. These techniques can also be used with softer coloured pp’s for a more pastel look.

 Tuesday Tip 29-07-14 - gesso backgrounds rs

Top left - Dampen a sea sponge in water, squeeze, then dry off excess water with a tea towel, so it’s only just damp.  Lightly dab into some gesso, then pat the sponge onto your pp.  Keep sponging until you are happy with the coverage.  I like to cover most of the paper, leaving a border around the edges untouched for some contrast.

Top right - This section was altered with a damp paintbrush and gesso.  Use up and down strokes to apply gesso mixed with a touch of water. You can see the difference between the sponging and watered down gesso which just lightly softens the colour of the paper.  The thicker the gesso is, the less the pattern and colours will show through.

Bottom left - Using gesso and a bit of folded cardboard, lightly dip the folded edge of the cardboard in the gesso and drag it up and down your paper, for a messier look.

Bottom right - Lastly, use gesso and a densely patterned mask which will cover most of the pattern. Here I have used the Kaisercraft bubbles stencil.

If you look at the closely at the technique example, you can see the difference in colour between the original bright background and the changes with each different technique.

 Tuesday Tip project rs

Here, I have created a soft colour wash card using the sponged technique on the background and the masking technique on the corners of the card. The pp insert in the envelope was altered with the watered down gesso technique applied with a paintbrush.

Naomi – Stamped layout

Each collection has a great set of stamps so why not make them a foundation for a layout… This months Bow and arrows set is awesome in a word.

going a long with the current trends of dribbles of colours and clumps of threads and shots of colour, I really like this teenage boy page.

DSCN2742

remember that it doesn’t need to be a perfect stamp every time, so alter the amount of pressure you apply and the amount of ink… and if in doubt stamp on spare paper and the second on your layout… I really like the worn look to the frames.

DSCN2744

Stamp the chevron pattern on to a scrap white and then line it up with a My favourite things feather die or cut your own feather shape. The chevron works perfectly for feathers

layers is the key to any layout, even simple ones like this… add texture with paint and alternate embellishments with foam dots and always make sure that clusters disperse and scatter to kept the focal point the photo

‘Domi’- Layout

Can you pick the odd paper out?

One of my favourite things about Kaisercraft paper is that often I can interchange at least one or two papers between the ranges… Which sort of means that I MUST buy them all because I can use it all. Which is a win win which is what I tell the husband anyway.

Can you pick the pitter patter in the layout?

DSCN2724

Did you pick the pitter patter baby cakes. the beautiful script writing works perfectly with this range.

A little shot of a contrasting colour in this case yellow always helps  for a bit of pop in a predominately one tone layout…

Other Products Used: Tim Holtz sizzix Ornate Frame die, Spellbinders corner die, Resin crown, misc. metal heart, Misc Chipboard.

PS… don’t forget to set yourself a challenge and try to intermix ranges. I would love to see the combinations.

Jewellery Board – Naomi

How many times do you put your jewellery down and forget where you put them.. Well not anymore I won’t.

DSCN2730

This romantic range lends itself to the richness of a french inspired letter board. I glittered up a Recipe stand and then went to work covering and lacing a 12X12 chipboard square with satin seam binding and then inserting the silver knobs…

Tuesday Tip with Adriana

Hello everyone, it is my turn today for “Tuesday Tips”, and sharing a very quick and easy tip with you all.

Kaisercraft 12′ x 12′ papers come with a 10mm strip on the bottom of each page. On one side it gives details of the paper collection and a unique “P” number, as well as a bar code for scanning. These are trimmed off and on the other side is a strip of coordinating paper.

P1070463

This coordinating strip of paper can be used in so many ways.

P1070465

 They can be used on cards, layouts and all types of projects.  I like using them on cards for an extra unique touch. Sometimes these strips have a patterned design and sometimes they have sentiments or phrases. You can cut them up individually to decorate your card or layout.

Here is an example of a card using many of these strips together.

P1070472

P1070470

So next time you cut or trim off the little strips of paper from your recently purchased Kaisercraft papers, keep it !!!  …….. it might be the needed finishing touch on your project.

Have a great crafting week :)

Cheers Adriana

CardKeeper and Card – Naomi Cox

What do you give the new mumma that most likely has three of everything?

pitterpatter

A beautiful handmade card and card keeper, of course. A card is for those tonnes of congratulations and welcome cards your little person will receive …

DSCN2692

The new mumma simply has to use a hole punch on the cards and open the rings…easy for them and so so easy for you to make too with a few simple ingredients from the Kaiser range. Chipboard (cut two pieces what ever size you like), 1 Ornament frame, 3 Jump rings, paper and pitter-patter collectables… then start making.

Tuesday Tips with Alison – Altering Ribbon Roses

Hi Everyone,

Today I would like to share with you a tip on how you can use Kaisercraft Ribbon roses in may different ways.

All you need are Kaisercraft ribbon roses, heatgun, scissors and a wooden skewer to hold your rose.

To make a ‘leaf’ – cut a green ribbon rose in half, then adhere the cut side together. If you trim on the diagonal it helps with the shape.

Alison - Tuesday Tip -  leaves

Starting from the left top 1st row – the first rose is the standard rose cut off the strip; the next one along has been heated with the heat gun holding the centre with the skewer (start with a hot blast in the centre and then ‘work’ the heat around to shrink the ribbon and shape it like a bud);  next is a ribbon rose which has a pearl brad in the centre.

2nd row – to make the 1st flower, I hold the back of the rose and ‘pull’ out lots of strands from the front to make it shabby (or a bit frazzled?); the 2nd flower is the same as the previous one, then heated, the same way as above.

3rd row – here I have pulled the rose apart, making a length of ribbon which is perfect for a cute little bow!

Alison - Tuesday Tip - flowers & bows

With a pearl brad in a standard rose and a couple of ‘leaves’ it makes a cute addition to a card or a flower cluster.

Alison - Tuesday Tip - leaves example

On this layout, made with Heirloom, I used a ribbon rose with a pearl brad and another of the heated rose (shrunk) in the clusters.

Tuesday Tip - LO example

Below is the heated rose with some ink swiped across the top.

tip flower closeup 1

Below is a ribbon rose with a pearl brad as a centre.

tip flower closeup 2

Hope you’ll try some of these ways of altering your ribbon roses.

Be creative, Alison x

Tuesday Tip with Flutter Template

Hi All,

Today I would like to share with you a tip using a the 12 X 12 Flutter template from Kaisercraft.

All you need is the template and some stamp ink

I find the Kaisercraft Templates have  just  the right amount of hardness,
making it very easy to blur the stamp ink and get the perfect effect.

1

I used a sponge dauber commonly used for the stencil.
Blur the beige ink.

2

Blur the pink ink and remember to change the sponge dauber for  each colour

3

You can fine-tune the colour with the stamp ink, it is also easy to make the graduation.

4

This is the perfect tool to use for tags, cards and in the background of any layout.

5

Good luck :)

Tuesday Tip with Adriana Bolzon using Captured Moments

Hi there everyone thanks for stopping by,

Today I am showcasing a special project that I created for Kaisercraft using the paper collection “Something Blue”. 

Now as the name suggests, yes it is a perfect collection for Wedding projects, cards etc. Very modern and fresh.

But I want to demonstrate, how versatile the “Captured Moments”  - Celebrate Life Journal cards

Also, I want to show you all that these papers and journalling cards can be used for everyday themes, not just Weddings. Now these journalling cards are great for all your pocket pages, which are in vogue at the moment, but also they are fabulous for your cards and altered art projects.

In today’s tip, I will show you what I created with just the “Captured Moments” journalling cards 3″ x 4″ size. 

but they are also available in the 4″ x 6″ size, as well. So with some Collectables, flowers and punches and one 12 x 12 white card stock for the background.

I created this page. “Enjoy the little things”

 

Very fresh and modern and very simple to do. In fact, it all came together in just a few minutes.  Applying other cards on top of each other and also using border punches etc.

 I also created this table stand which will be featured last week on the blog with the “Something Blue” papers and using the “Fall in Love” from the Captured Moment journalling card. 

Well I hope I have inspired you to create and use “Captured Moments” cards in different way….    Happy Crafting everyone  !!!!    :)

Cheers Adriana XX

Tuesday Tip with Lori : Chalk Stamping

close up of finished project

Hi Everybody it’s Lori with you today sharing my last design team post.  I can’t say how much I’ve loved the last three years and what a wonderful company KaiserCraft is to work with.  I’ll miss it very much but have a feeling I’ll still be having to get my fixes of their beautiful collections.

Today’s tip is one that is really simple but so cool looking and I thought the Something Blue Collection would be perfect for the technique.  Chalk stamping.

step two

Gathering you supplies : Clear Stamp and Block, White Pigment Ink and Black Card Stock, white pen, and clear embossing powder with heat gun.

step one

Use a cornstarch pouch over the top of your cardstock to keep any random embossing powder from scattering over your surface.

step three

Stamp your image with White Pigment Ink and then cover with clear embossing powder and heat set.

step four

Stamp your image again with a slight off set and not lined up exactly.  This will give a more authentic look to your chalkboard effect.

step five

Take a dry brush and rub over your inkpad, then rub in lines over your sentiment.  This will make it look like a wipe off chalkboard.

step six

Once you put the ink on with the brush rub over everything with your finger to blend.

step seven step eight

For the final touch you can use a white pen and make lines on the sides with a ruler and then rub with your finger, again to soften everything up.
