Do you have a Kaisercraft DIY Cuts Machine at home?  Have you ever been interested in learning a little more about it?  Are there any questions you might have about this machine such as “How to get your B Plates to stop from bending?”  Today for Tutorial Tuesday I am focusing completely on the DIY Cuts Machine.  I have attached a Video Tutorial showing you exactly how I use the machine and I can do my best to answer any questions you might have about it.  It will probably make more sense for you to watch the Video first and then read through the notes below.

Decorative Dies NEW Product Open Road Renee Aslette Scrapbooking layout

Eungella Dam Layout using Open Road by Renee Aslette

December 14, 2017

Hi Kaisercraft Friends,

It’s Renee Aslette here today, to share with you a layout I created using the newly released Open Road Collection and the Map Of Australia Die Cut.

We have recently purchased a camper trailer, this collection was the perfect way to capture the memories of a fantastic week away visiting Eungella Dam.

Eungella Dam, is a beautiful camping area up in the Eungella Valley just out of Mackay in Far North Queensland.

To begin with, I created a mixed media background using some Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Refills on a 12 x 12 Weave Cardstock – Coconut.  The touch of blue was used to tie in with the camper in the photo.

I also added a torn strip of Corrugated Cardstock to the left and right of the layout.

I then got the new Map of Australia Die Cut out and cut 4,  using various patterned paper from the Open Road Collection.  When I received this die cut, I knew I would be using it as a feature on a layout.

I used a white pen to define the separation lines on the die and the border of the entire piece.

Here are some more close-ups:

The Collectables in this collections are stunning.  Perfect for any adventure.

I used the Kaisercraft Chipboard Alpha 2 for the title and coloured it with the same colours I used in the background of the layout minus the blue.

I hope you enjoyed this post.  Don’t be afraid to get those dies out and feature them on your layout.

Kaisercraft Products: Open Road Collection: P2442 Roaming (Reverse) | P2443 Undiscovered | P2444 Prospecting (Reverse) | P2446 Unchartered (Reverse) | P2450 Outback (Reverse) | SS353 Sticker Sheet | CT896 Collectables | DD468 Map of Australia Decorative Die | CB153 Corrugated Cardboard | CB108 Alpha #2.

Happy Camping. xx

Decorative Dies Design Team Jowilna Nolte Kaisercraft Layouts step by step Tutorial Tuesday wandering ivy

Little Things Wandering Ivy Layout Tutorial by Jowilna Nolte

December 12, 2017

Hi everyone – today I am sharing this double page layout created using the gorgeous Wandering Ivy Collection. For the tutorial portion I am sharing how I created
some interest on my background as well as using my die-cuts in a cheat way to add color instantly without worrying to tear or damage the fine delicate cuts made.
Lets take a look how I created my elements…
On my background I created some layered filled in circles with hand sewn details around the edges. So quick and easy to achieve but with a stunning end result.


For my flower cluster I wanted to use the beautiful Ivy die-cut. But the part I hate most about die-cuts is adding color to them once they are cut.
Especially with those delicate pieces that tear and break so easily So here’s my cheat way of adding color and cutting them without any fuss.

Step 1 – Turn the die-cut over and ink the flat side (back) of your die using 2 or more shades of green ink.
Lightly tap the ink onto the surface to ink it.

Step 2 – Carefully lift the die and place it onto your cardstock with the inked side on white cardstock.
Feed it through your die-cutting machine with your rubber matt in place. This will transfer the ink onto the cardstock and created a light embossed image as well.

Step 3 – Remove the cardstock from your machine. Lift the die-cut to reveal the now debossed and color transferred image.

Step 4 – Leave the ink to dry or heat set using a heat gun. Flip your cardstock over and position the die on the raised area of the image visible at the back.
Place the die and keep it in place with some washi tape. Now cut the image from the back.

TIP: You have to cut from the back in order to line the die up correctly with the colored image on the front.

Now cut the shape by putting it through your die-cutting machine. Remove the cut and coloured image.

And that’s how I quickly and easily add color to my image and then cut it without any fuss.

How to create the stitches circles on your background.

Step 5 – Use an anywhere circle cutter. I used my old fashioned one that I can adjust to any size circle.
Cut several circles out of your background and in different sizes.

Step 6 – Cut scraps of your patterned paper slightly bigger than your circles.

Step 7 – Back the cutout circles with the patterned paper pieces by adhering the pieces to the back of your cut out circles.
Use your paper piercer to make holes inside and even outside of the circles. Sew the circles using embroidery thread for a beautiful dimensional effect.

What have you created with the beautiful Wandering Ivy Collection? The sweetest and most beautiful collection…until the next one.
Happy scrapping Jowilna
