Kaisercraft Indigo Skies Beyond the Page and Video

April 21, 2017

Hello Kaisercraft Friends,

I know you are all loving the new Kaisercraft Indigo Skies Collection, it is such a versatile collection that can be used to scrap the boys or the girls.  Today I am sharing a Photo Frame with photos of my nieces and nephew from a photo shoot they had taken a few years ago now.  This is a present for my sister for her birthday.  Because she has three children these photos were a perfect fit for the Three Panel Frame.

Kaisercraft Indigo Skies Photo Frame by Alicia McNamara

I started with a Beyond The Page 3 Piece Panel Frame by Kaisercraft and the beautiful Indigo Skies Collection.

I filmed a Process Video of how I made this frame.

I used one of Kaisercraft’s new 6×6 Templates – Abstract Triangles to add some texture to the frame.

I also added some background stamping with my all time favourite stamp CS257 Background Script.

You can see in the video how I just ink up little bits of this stamp for the effect of a few words stamped here and there on the frame.

I tied the frame together with some Kaisercraft blue Organza Ribbon.

I fussy-cut some of the beautiful butterflies to decorate the frame.  I love butterflies as an embellishment.  I popped a little Kaisercraft Decorative Die vine (DD516) underneath the butterflies to fill in the gaps.

I added a little bit of navy sewing thread and a couple Kaisercraft white Mini Paper Blooms.

Using a combination of the Paper Pad, Collectables and Sticker Sheet you can make an endless variety of Pocket Pages that co-ordinate easily and beautifully with each other. Both the Sticker Sheet and Collectables have a number of different quotes and words that add a wonderful element to your pocket pages

The Flourish Packs are a wonderful way to add dimension that does not have too much thickness or weight to the pieces. If the embellishments are too heavy or thick you could damage your plastic sleeves over time

Alicia McNamara Card Making Kaiser Mists Layouts Specialty Gloss Papers Videos

Group Post Featuring Floral Gloss Specialty Paper

March 29, 2017

I sprayed pink and yellow Kaiser Mists randomly (and lightly) on the page and then gently wiped the surface with a baby wipe. The gloss on the Specialty paper acts as a resist and the Mist wipes right off leaving behind the gorgeous pattern. When choosing your Mists, think about how they combine as there will be areas where the colour overlaps. In my case it created a soft orange which co-ordinates beautifully with the layout.

Alicia McNamara Mini Album

Wildflower Mini Album with Alicia

March 6, 2017

Hello Kaisercrafters!

Alicia here with you, and today I am sharing a Mini Album I have made with the gorgeous new Wildflower collection.

Kaisercraft Wildflower Mini Album by Alicia McNamara

It has been awhile since I have made a Mini Album Project and because this collection is so beautiful I felt inspired to create one!

 Kaisercraft Wildflower Mini Album by Alicia McNamara

I started with a Kaisercraft Chipboard Album and painted it black.

Then I began decorating with the gorgeous Wildflower papers.

I chose some photos to fill my album.  You could really use any photos with these papers.

Kaisercraft Wildflower Mini Album by Alicia McNamara

I simply printed mine out in black and white to  coordinate them with the papers.

On some pages in my album I chose not use a photo, I used a quote instead.

Kaisercraft Wildflower Mini Album by Alicia McNamara

 The photos I used are some of my two gorgeous nieces taken about seven years ago.

There are lots of lovely positive quotes to use in the Wildflower collection.

And the pastel colours are so pretty!
