Flowers that Last by Collette Mitrega

April 12, 2017

Hi papercrafters.

There is nothing like a bouquet of flowers to brighten ones day.

I am delighted to show you how I created a beautiful boxed bouquet that will last and last.

It is fun to make and so special to give.

The video will take you through the process, step by step, and has lots of tips and tricks along the way.

I really hope you enjoy it and have time to make one yourself and gift it to someone who needs a bit of sunshine!

I am using the beautiful ‘High Tea Collection’ released this month.

The beautifully illustrated roses look stunning set against the soft whitewash colour palette and are perfect for my ‘Bouquet’. The sentiments are based around friendship which is exactly what I needed to make this special gift for a friend needing some sunshine and beauty in a time of great sadness.

Double Diamonds and Little Geishas

February 7, 2017

Oh what amazing papers this month!

I decided to show you how to make a ‘Double Diamond Fold Card’ and little Geisha Girls with Hanami Gardens. It’s not hard when you are shown how, so I am hoping my video helps you to create with these gorgeous papers!

Kaisercratft Products Used: Hanami Garden- P2251 Tsuki |P2253 Mockuren | P2257 Sorra | CT875 Collectables |CD603 Black Premium Cardstock | PT227 Glitter Tape Gold |SB711 Rhinestones Red T321 Acid Free Craft Glue |T303 Foam Tape | LDB1058 Permanent Tape Runner.

Other Products Used: Dental Floss, Red Permanent Marker, 1″ Circle Punch.

This little geisha is one that I have re-worked from the past. I cannot remember where I was first introduce to her but was glad I could recreate her here for you! I use to make a big bundle of girls and pop a magnet on the back of them. When I would send a card, I would pop one inside my card envelope as a special little ‘Fridge Magnet Gift’.

Did you know Kaisercraft have fridge magnets? (LDB1051 for rectangles and LDB 1050 for circles)

The Video

I hope you have a great crafty month and lots of fun creating with the beautiful papers from Kaisercraft.
