Layouts Rikki Graziani Summer Splash

Scrapping on a Budget – Tutorial and Layout by Rikki Graziani

November 21, 2017

Good morning how are you all? Rikki here today with my share for the month – using the Summer Splash Collection.

I was very fortunate this month to get the my layout on the front cover on the Kaisercraft Workshop…..

Which got me thinking with a few changes with embellishments and with the same papers how you can get a different layout without blowing your scrapping budget, especially when your buy the Paper Pack  and it works out great when you are time poor or if your mojo has left the building.

Kaisercraft Products: Summer Splash Collection: P2418 Swell | P2420 Beach Towel | PP1031 Paper PAd | CT893 Collectables | Other: Embossing Paste | Silicon Moulds | Paper Clay | Glitter

 

Heres the process video on how I created this layout:

 

 

 

 

Changing the direction of your papers is the quickest way to start your new layout. Why change what works?

Paper clay is a great way to add some ocean themed embellishments, even some real shells can be added as a budget saving measure.

Sometimes all you need is some glitter ….. flicking the glue around in a random splatter pattern will help give your glitter the same random effect.

Add a couple of embellishments from the Collectables……

Dont forget if you dont have the latest and greatest, go find you diecuts, and cut a heap out in white they are great way to add an interesting layers to your layout.

 

Hope you enjoyed this process till next time.

Rikki Graziani Rose Avenue Tutorials

“Happy Birthday” Layout and Process Video by Rikki Graziani

October 23, 2017

Good morning Rikki here today with a layout and process video featuring Kaisercraft Rose Avenue…..

This collection has so many beautiful elements its hard to pick just one!!!

So I decided to do a little challenge for myself… working around the fussy cutting that I had already done for the month… when we get our DT kit, I go through it all and sit down over a weekend and cut all the elements that can be fussy cut and then put them in a snap lock bag, that way they are ready when I am ready to create.

It make it a little bit interesting for me for this process video I set myself a goal of constructing a layout in 30 mins or under once my background had dried. I have to say I was very close but having prepared the fussy cutting before hand made it fly along…

 

 

Kaisercraft Products: Rose Avenue Collection: P2406 Patio|P2409 Wood Panels | SS349 Sticker Sheet | PP1030 Paper Pad | CT892 Collectables |IT446 Ornate Damask 6×6 Designer Templates | Other : Mist | Prills | Glue

 

   

By flicking glue you can get a more random effect with  your prills or microbeads….

Dont forget to add your elements between your mat layers this will finish off your layering…..

I hope you enjoyed this layout and process video.

Till next time, have a creative day.

Letters To Santa – Pop Up Card Tutorial – By Rikki Graziani

September 1, 2017

Good morning how are you all? Rikki here today to share with you a pop up card tutorial using the stunning new Kaisercraft Collection – Letters to Santa.

(Please note: measurements might vary between steps)

 

 

Step 1 : Cut 20cm x 20cm (8”x8”) Square.

Work in a clockwise direction…….

Step 2 : With a Punch Board ; Punch  the measurements of 9cm and 7cm  (3 1/2” and 2 3/4 ”) and score the line at these measurements.

Step 3: Flip the paper over ( so you would have a different pattern facing up wards – the green side of P2391 Carolers ) and repeat step 2.

Step 4 : Flip the paper over ( so you would have a different pattern facing up wards – the music side of P2391 Carolers ) and repeat step 2.

Step 5 : Flip the paper over ( so you would have a different pattern facing up wards – the green side of P2391 Carolers ) and repeat step 2.

 

Step 6 : Tape or glue your sides of your box…..

Step 7 : With your punch board fold over a short end and punch in the center of the end to make a tab….

Step 8: Cut on the edges to make tabs for the box…..

 

Step 9 : Now it gets a little bit fiddly but the end goal is to push all your edges inwards to create a box.

 

 

Step 10 : With  matching paper cut a rectangle to fit into the center of the tray – approx : 14 cm x 8 cm (5 3/8” x 3 7/8” ), tape / glue to the center of the box.

Step 11 : Cut 3 x Strips of pattern paper 2.5 cm x 8 cm (1” x 3 1/8”) and fold in half and attach to the front of your tray sticking one side to the bottom of the box…

Keep your layers towards the front so you can add a gift card or chocolates at the back of the tray…..

Step 12 : Attach and add CT890 Collectables to the three layers, if they are too heavy you can add a thin strip of acetate to the back of your layers….

The Cover (not really an exact science, always check measurements against the tray).

Step 13: Cut a strip of pattern paper 24.5 cm x 15 cm  (9 1/2” x 5 7/8” )

Working Left to Right…..

Step 14: Score and fold at 1.5cm mark ( 1 5/8”)

Step 15: Score and fold at 10cm mark ( 4” )

Step 16: Score and fold at 11.5 cm (4 1/2 ”) doesnt have to be too exact as you ultimately  want it to be on a the wider side to allow you to slide in and out (*** at this point I measure against the side of the tray rather than go on measurements….)

Step  17: Score where the side meets the bottom, and glue, score and wrap the extra around the box…..

Step 18: Decorate the outside of the box, the SS347 Sticker Sheet is great for this…..
