July Creations with Cathy Cafun and a Sad Farewell

July 21, 2016

Hi everyone,

When I opened my parcel of Kaisercraft goodies, my eyes were instantly drawn to the gorgeous ‘Mademoiselle’ Collection and I was in love!!  The soft pinks and creams with the vintage theme are a perfect match for my shabby chic style, so I decided to create 2 layouts and a thank you card with this gorgeous range.

“Time” Layout by Cathy Cafun

M Time LO

To create my background, I have used the lovely crackle template and accented the masking with microbeads for added texture.

M TLO c1

I love to mix my Kaisermists to create new colours, and have made a soft pink and soft brown by mixing my Kaisermists with a touch of white.  I combined white with candy to create a pastel pink, and white with coffee to create a soft brown.  I sprayed my background with water then applied the soft pink mist with a brush to create a watercolour effect.  Once dry, I flicked over with white and soft brown mist.

How pretty is the new detailed doily decorative die!! I teamed it with fussy cut flowers and butterflies to frame my photo.

 “Cherish” Layout by Cathy Cafun

M Cherish LO

For this layout I wanted to create a soft and dreamy feel, by using the creamy coloured pp’s which I combined with hints of pink.  My background was stencilled with the pretty Damask Quarters Template and texture paste and whilst the medium was wet I sprinkled with some shabby embossing powder and heat set.

The gorgeous large flourishes decorative die (one of my all time favs) goes beautifully with this shabby chic feminine collection.

“Garden Fresh”  Layout by Cathy Cafun


Trying to find photos to go with the Bon Appetit collection, I came across these old pics of Brittany with her Aunty Jen picking greens and veges from the vege patch for our dinner.  Whilst we were on holidays, she took great delight in venturing out every day to forage in the garden.

The green leafy botanical pp’s caught my eye and teamed with the lovely woodgrain pp went beautifully with my photos.

I used Kaisermists toned down with a bit of water to paint my vege collectables.

Altered Notebook “Recipes” by Cathy Cafun


My daughter is constantly asking me to write out her favourite family recipes. so I decided to create a quick and easy little Recipe Notebook to record them in and keep for that time in the not too distant future when she leaves the family nest.  I just purchased an inexpensive notebook which I covered, then used the cute little tabs and stickers from the 12×12 sticker sheet to decorate.

Sadly, today is my final Kaisercraft DT post.  I would like to thank Kaisercraft for giving me the opportunity to create with a gorgeous array of amazing products every month and for allowing me to be part of such a fabulous Design Team.  A big thank you also to all the gorgeous girls on the Design Team, that I have had the pleasure to get to know over the past 2 years… you are all amazing!! and last but not least, to all of you who took the time to leave such beautiful comments on my blog and facebook posts.  Every one of your comments were very much appreciated.

My Final Fling and a Fond Farewell with Belinda Spencer

July 14, 2016

Hello Kaisercrafters!!

Belinda here with you today to share my projects using the fabulous July collections.

So much to love with the collections this month (as every month!). So let’s get started with the Bon Apetit collection.


I love cooking and baking so the Bon Apetit was the perfect range to use with photos of my cooking.

‘Enjoy’ Layout by Belinda Spencer

KC July - BA - Enjoy 1

The colours in this range suited this photo of my ‘carrot in the ground’ cupcakes perfectly. I baked these cupcakes for a cake stall at my kids’ school and they were a big hit! I wished there was one left over for me!!

I think the Floured patterned paper that I have used for the background is my favourite in the collection and pretty accurately depicts how my kitchen looks after I have finished cooking up a storm. :-)

KC July - BA - Enjoy 4

How lovely are the ‘recipe cards’ behind my photo? I have used them to frame my photo and it was a stroke of luck that the colour perfectly complimented my cake tin.

Kaisercraft materials: P2121 Floured | PP1000 Paper Pad | SS316 Sticker Sheet | CT859 Collectables | FL577 Wooden Flourish Pack Cooking | EM432 Recipe Cards | CD101 Kaisercard Coconut | CD137 Kaisercard Watermelon | IP719 Ink Pad Black | IP724 Ink Pad Bark | IP734 Ink Pad Red.

Other: kitchen twine | paper clip.

‘Eat’ Layout by Belinda Spencer

KC July - BA - Eat 1

There’s nothing better than baking your own bread at home and enjoying the aroma wafting from the breadmaker. I used a photo of one of my own loaves nestled amongst the bread loaves on the ‘Recipe’ patterned paper as the background.

KC July - BA - Eat 2

How cute are the little wooden flourishes from the Cooking pack?? Adorable, right? I have added a sweet wooden spoon, whisk and rolling pin to my layout as well as coiled some actual kitchen twine across the page.

KC July - BA - Eat 4

Kaisercraft materials: P2119 Fresh | P2120 Cool | P2122 Recipe | PP1000 Paper Pad | SS316 Sticker Sheet | CT859 Collectables | FL577 Wooden Flourish Pack Cooking | CS267 Clear Stamp | DD383 Decorative Die Large Tabs | CD101 Kaisercard Coconut | ST909 Epoxy Stickers Natural.

Other: kitchen twine | staples | ink.

I have taken advantage of the gorgeous floral papers and butterfly images to create two layouts featuring photos of my darling daughter.

Let’s get Cooking & Farewell – Adriana Bolzon

July 12, 2016

Hi there everyone, Adriana here today and I have created a Recipe Book with the gorgeous rustic papers and images of the Kaisercraft new release papers “Bon Appetit”


These papers are fabulous for all lovers of food. I think they have a very homegrown feel to them, I love the little cherry images and the rustic country kitchen and cooking textures on the images in this paper collection.
For today I have 2 tutorials – one on how to create your very own Recipe Book with an art Book or notebook and the other Tutorial is how to create a paper apron. This paper apron is on the cover of my Recipe book but it would look great on cards as well.

Another idea is to create a “Shopping List” notebook
(this would make a great gift idea, I bought a very inexpensive notebook from a stationery store and decorated it, with the papers and Collectables from the Bon Appetit collection)

I have created more of these cute paperclip embellishments with the

These little paper clip embellishments are great for cards & books.
