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

Today the Design Team are showcasing a beautiful Specialty Paper from the gorgeous Wild flower Collection called Floral Gloss.

This Specialty Paper looks amazing when sprayed with Kaiser Mists.  Each Design Team Member has created a beautiful project featuring Floral Gloss, and included at the bottom of this post there is a video tutorial for you to watch so you can see exactly how to do it yourself!

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.

Kaisercraft Wildflower Mini Album by Alicia McNamara

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.

Kaisercraft Wildflower Mini Album by Alicia McNamara

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!

This collection is full of butterflies and flowers…and what isn’t there to love about butterflies and flowers?

This collections goes perfectly with Kaisercraft’s Glitter Card Stock too.

I added some more quotes in with the Kaisercraft Sticker Sheets.

‘Remember’ by Sonia Thomason

To create my background, I took the gorgeous Gold Foil Fan paper and sprayed with Kaiser Mist in Charcoal. I then wiped the paper with a baby wipe and the foil acts as a resist to the Mist to create this beautiful rich background that makes the Parasol Paper pop!

I stamped part of the Parasol Die Cut Paper with embossing ink using the gorgeous Oriental Calligraphy Texture Stamp and then heat embossed using gold embossing powder. It gives an amazing textural finish that works beautifully with the Gold Foil Paper:
