“Enjoy the Little Things” by Cathy McGrath

December 1, 2017

Hello everyone! It’s Cathy here on the Kaisercraft blog today. I am thrilled to be sharing with you a card that I have created using the brand new Wandering Ivy Collection. It is a gorgeous collection with so many floral images, deep blues and purple tones that are perfect for creating projects for so many occassions. The card that I am sharing with you today is an all occassion card with an uplifting sentiment, a perfect go to card to have in your stash.

I have used the stamp set to create my own sentiment and focal point of my card. This technique is shared in the video below.

Modifying the paper blooms and adding a flat back pearl adds a vintage feel to the card.

Using mounting foam adds dimensions and adds interest to your cards. It helps to showcase the layers of beautiful patterned papers that you have used in your card design.

Below is the video tutorial which explains the process in creating this card.

Romantique Set of Six Cards with Instructions

November 23, 2017

I love to make co-ordinating sets of cards.  Once I have the design I think it makes good sense to repeat it and make multiples.  This way I have more cards to share with family and friends.  Today I am sharing the instructions to make a set of six cards using the Romantique Collection.  Each card follows the same basic design, but is slightly different.  These cards are found in this month’s Kaisercraft Workshop Magazine which can be dowloaded here.  Full instructions are also include in the magazine.

Four Tips for Using Summer Splash Specialty Paper

November 15, 2017

Have you seen the super cute Summer Splash Specialty Paper?  It is so bubbly and just perfect for your beach-side projects!  How can it be incorporated into a layout, tag or card I hear you ask? Well today the Design Team are highlighting Four Tips you might like to consider when creating with this paper.  Let’s take a look at their inspiration.


Tip #1 – Use the Specialty Paper as a Die Cut Sheet on a Layout

Rikki doesn’t own a cutting machine and this is why she loves the Summer Splash Specialty Paper.  With this Paper Rikki achieves the effect of a cutting machine with minimum effort.  The paper is cut for her and ready to go onto her gorgeous beach side Layout.
