Cogs Wall Art Medal hanger with Beck Beattie

August 4, 2017

Hi Everyone, Beck Beattie here!  I’m so excited to be sharing with you my first project as part of the Kaisercraft Design Team.  WOOT!

For my project today I wanted to create something a little different.  For so long I have adored all the fun wooden Wall Art designs Kaisercraft sell and when I saw the new ‘Cogs‘ one I just fell in love!  I also had a cool idea for it for something I have been wanting to make for my boys’ rooms.

My project today is a Medal holder, as for some time my boys have been finding different places to hang their medals they have acheived but often all on top of each other.   I wanted them to be able to celebrate the hard work they have put in to achieving those medals as they trained hard to get better at their sport and win them.  Having them featured in their room will be a great inspiration for them.  When I saw the large Cogs Wall Art, I knew it would be perfect and a bit of a different way to display them.

The new Factory 42 collection was the perfect match for this project giving it a fun and masculine egde to it working in perfectly with their rooms.

I started out by painting the large Cogs Wall art with brown paint.  I simply used a spray paint for this as it was super quick and gave a nice even coat.  I followed this up by adding some clear embossing ink along with metallic embossing powder in areas where I wanted to feature additional cogs.

I also added some stamping with black ink to the base using the cots stamps from the Mechanical Parts Die and Stamp set.  This really finished off my project.

I wanted to add some inspirational words onto the wall art and chose the words ‘BE YOUR BEST’.  For these words I adhered the Machine pattern paper onto some chipboard and die cut my letters out.  You could use any old chipboard letters you have or even wooden Kaiser ones in the medium size.  You can find them HERE.  Just adhere the paper onto it and then using a craft knife cut off the excess and file the edges for a clean finish.  I also added a little black ink to some of the edges of mine for a edgy look.

I teamed the large inspirational words with some out of the collectables pack.   I added a little cardboard behind the clock and word plate to give them a little extra strength and dimension.

Using the Mini Cogs and Mechanical Decorative Die sets I die cut a number of cogs from the Pipeworks paper.  I just flipped some over to have the different papers featured.  I then teamed them up with lots of cogs out of the Factory 42 Collectables pack layering and adhering as I went.

These Wall Art projects are so much fun!  Given I too have taken up running and achieved my first 10km medal on the weekend I think I might make another one of these for me with some of my favourite colours and some florals added in too for a feminine look!

I hope you enjoyed my project share today!  I would love to hear other ideas for the Cogs Wall Art in the comments.  I’m sure many of you creative souls out there have loads of ideas!

Till next time, happy creating!

Beyond the Page Card Making Mini Album

Beyond the page and a last good bye from Kirsten Hyde

July 17, 2017

I have had two amazing years as a designer for Kaisercraft. It is time for a change for me, and therefore this will be my last blogpost for Kaisercraft. This time I am showing two projects with this months collections, The Golden Grove collection and Lilac Whisper. I have often loved creating different kind of projects, but most of all – I love creating beyond the page projects.

Golden Grove Collection

The first project is a mini album with a card with the Golden Grove collection. This is a simply decorated gift album. Fantastic as a present, for someone to add their own photos. The mini album has been made fro scratch. You can find the tutorial for the minialbum here.

The front of the album has a pocket with room for a card.

All the sides of the album has side flaps. The pages are simply decorated with panels from the different papers.

Lilac Whisper collection

The Lilac whisper collection is a soft and sweet collection. A few weeks ago, I created this dress and featured it in my blog. I thought I wanted to share it here too.  I have always loved making dresses out of paper. The doll here is a barbie doll, and the dress has been created shaping and folding each ruffle seperatly when I created the pattern.

‘The Adventure Begins’ Layout by Collette Mitrega

A good friend of mine Sandra Boles took this amazing award winning photo and she kindly let me use it. It goes perfectly with the colours in the ‘Bombay Sunset’ collection with its bold striking colours, clashing patterns and detailed floral designs! I love this photo and simple layout; I have looked at it so many times and can see a life of hardship and so much more. It was taken in Rajasthan. If you want to see more of Sandras stunning work, check out her
