Pretty Florals with High Tea

April 25, 2017

Hi everyone, Sonia here with the gorgeous new collection for April – High Tea. This collection will make anyone who loves shabby chic very happy indeed! It is a collection that has a beautiful white-washed colour palette with stunning floral images. The colours and softness of the images make it so easy to use for many occasions. I loved the floral images and the soft pinks / reds and immediately wanted to use some baby pictures of my daughter with a floral crown on her head.

‘Cherish the little things’

Kaisercraft products used: P2277 ‘Devonshire’ | P2278  ‘Biscuit’ | P2284 ‘Cup & Saucer’ | CT879 High Tea Collectables | SS336 High Tea Sticker Sheet | CD651 Kraft Cardstock | CB153 Corrugated Cardstock | KM111 White Kaiser Mist | F633 Olive Paper Blooms | F641 Dusty Pink Paper Blooms | F650 Olive Mini Blooms | ST928 Clear Stickers Life | SB700 Silver Rhinestones | DD518 Nesting Tags Decorative Die | LDB1059 Natural Twine |

Other: Crystal Sparklet, Grommet for tag and White Gesso

I choose the gorgeous ‘Cup & Saucer’ (P2284) as my main background as it already has the most stunning, distressed look to it. I wanted to add a little more texture so I tore vertically down the paper between the white and green distressed parts and added in a strip of the Corrugated Cardstock (CB153)

To add extra dimension I also added in the stunning floral strip from the High Tea Sticker Sheet (SS336). The floral image can be used as one whole piece as I have here, or you can trim it to suit your page. By layering in these different textures you have a page that you just want to touch!

With this gorgeous paper I just had to use some of the Paper Blooms! The Olive and Dusty Pink Paper Blooms picked up the colour palette of High Tea perfectly! I fussy cut some of the Floral images from the ‘Devonshire’ paper (P2277) and mixed these in with the Paper Blooms

One of my favourite Dies is the Nesting Tag Die (DD518). For this layout I cut out a tag using the Die and the ‘Biscuit’ paper (P2278) and added a grommet and some Natural Twine (LDB1059)

One of my other favourite Kaisercraft products are the Clear Stickers. These are so versatile and if you love mixed media then you’ll be happy to know that they can be stuck over the top of all sorts of layers of mediums!!! Here I have used a quote from the ‘Life’ pack (ST928). These stickers can be trimmed to fit or mixed and matched to suit your project

I hope you love the High Tea collection as much as I do – it makes my shabby chic heart so happy to play with these fabulous papers and matching embellishments!

Happy scrapping

Flowers that Last by Collette Mitrega

April 12, 2017

Hi papercrafters.

There is nothing like a bouquet of flowers to brighten ones day.

I am delighted to show you how I created a beautiful boxed bouquet that will last and last.

It is fun to make and so special to give.

The video will take you through the process, step by step, and has lots of tips and tricks along the way.

I really hope you enjoy it and have time to make one yourself and gift it to someone who needs a bit of sunshine!

I am using the beautiful ‘High Tea Collection’ released this month.

The beautifully illustrated roses look stunning set against the soft whitewash colour palette and are perfect for my ‘Bouquet’. The sentiments are based around friendship which is exactly what I needed to make this special gift for a friend needing some sunshine and beauty in a time of great sadness.

Card Making Decorative Dies

Shaker card bonanza, by Kirsten Hyde

February 13, 2017

I am often giving classes, and get asked about how to create shaker cards. I decided to go through the process of creating some different shaker cards.  These nine 4″ x 4″ shaker cards, are created from one sheet of patterned paper. I used glass beads, half beads, sequins and micro beads inside the shaker boxes. The shaker boxes has been made from packaging or hand made with dies, acetate, paper and 3d foam.

I have used micro beads, beads, sand, sequins and half beads inside the cards. In the video below, I am going through the different ways of creating these shaker cards.

Individual cards shaker cards:

Cards with shaker boxes made from packaging:

Card created with a hand made shaker box, from a frame from the collectables:

Cards with hand made shaker boxes, created with dies:

Cards with a shaker box with a pattern:

Cards with several shaker boxes:

These shaker cards are great, where you want different colour beads or sequins inside different parts of the card. To create these cards, you create several shaker boxes behind the front cardstock.
