Mabel Sim Mixed Media NEW Product Rose Avenue

Live. Laugh. Love Canvas by Mabel Sim

October 26, 2017

Hi everyone!

I’m Mabel and I’m here to share with you a canvas piece inspired by the sweet pastel colour combination and the floral theme of Kaisercraft’s new collection Rose Avenue.

My focus for this project would be the textures and the layering. On the background, I had created the desired textures through stencils and texture paste and painted them with harsh colours followed by brushing on uneven coat of gesso such that colours will peek through. Layering was also made easy with the use of ephemera and patterned papers great for fussy cutting.

Design Team Layouts Rose Avenue

Shabby Chic Layouts Featuring Rose Avenue

October 11, 2017

When you hear the words Shabby Chic Layout what immediately springs to mind? Distressed layers, lace, floral patterns, and pastels?

Shabby Chic…according to Wikipedia is a form of interior design where furniture and furnishings are either chosen for their appearance of age and signs of wear and tear or where new items are distressed to achieve the appearance of an antique. At the same time, a soft, opulent, yet cottage-style decor, often with an affected feel is emphasized to differentiate it from the genuine period decor.

Today the Design Team were asked to create a Shabby Chic Layout featuring the beautiful Rose Avenue Collection.  Let’s see their interpretations….

Letters To Santa Mabel Sim NEW Product Tutorials

Santa Claus Says Merry Christmas! by Mabel Sim

September 26, 2017

Hi everyone!

I’m Mabel and I’m here to share with you a tutorial with the new Letters to Santa Collection to create a simple Christmas themed frame that is so apt for your Christmas display.

I first start with a 8×8 inches shadow box which I prepped it with an even coat of white gesso. You can also use any white acrylic paint/white opaque paint to replace gesso if you do not own one.

In the meantime, while waiting for the gesso to dry, cut down P2388 Christmas Poinsettia as a base.

I had also fussy cut out my centrepiece for today with P2395 Be Merry. I trimmed out the circle sentiment and mount it on foam tapes to give it some dimension.

Layering is always the key to make your project looks sophisticated. It is actually a very simple technique of arranging your pieces together on different heights. For this time round, I am making use of the rim of the shadowbox to show different layers. I had fussy cut out Mr. Santa from P2389 Dear Santa and stuck it to the bottom corner of my frame.

To balance out the opposite end, I am also adhering pieces from the CT890 Collectables as well as from P2393 Holly & Berries, followed by Christmas streamers from SS347 Sticker Sheet.

Adding pulled cheese cloth will also add some additional interest to the project.

Simply cut down the cheese cloth to tiny bits and tug it gently for the strings to break apart from its usual placement, adhere them to the bottom of your flowers.

Here’s the final look and some close up pictures. :)

Card Making Christmas Christmas Edition Design Team Jowilna Nolte Kaisercraft Scrapbooking layout step by step Tuesday Tutorials Tutorials

Christmas Edition with a pop of colour by Jowilna Nolte

September 12, 2017

 Hi everyone, Jowilna here with my Tuesday Tutorial showing you how easy it is to add a pop of color to paper and elements in a few easy steps.
I love the Christmas Edition Range of papers, but somehow Christmas doesn’t seem right without a bit of color. So I naturally wanted to add
some color to the range and found a really easy way to achieve it.
Sharpie markers were used to add color to the background paper used on my card, as well as some of the collectables.
The elements and paper took the color really well
and made for a striking finishing product – showing just how versatile this range really is.


The secret to coloring is to layer different colors so that you can add highlights and shadows and achieve beautiful shading.
How to color your elements
step 1 – Start by coloring your poinsettia leaves in orange.

step 2 – Next add some bright pink shading down the middle of the leaves and any dark areas printed on the image.

step 3 – Finish off the leaves with a layer of red. The orange and pink combined with the red makes for a beautiful rich color perfect for Christmas.

step 4 – Trim the background paper to size to fit onto the front of your card.

TIP:  Select three shades of green markers to add color to your leaves. Start with the lightest green working to the darkest green and then blend over everything with the light green again for a seamless effect.

step 5 – Color some holly leaves from your collectables pack.

step 6 – Position your elements together and start layering them onto each other.

step 7 – Use mounting foam dots to adhere some of the elements to add dimension to your card.
Layer the elements underneath each other for interest.

step 8 – Apply glimmer paste through the star stencil.

Add embellishments like buttons, rhinestones and ink splats. Use dimensional glaze to highlight some of the berries on the elements from the collectables pack.

I can’t wait to explore more ways of adding color to this range using different mediums and techniques.
The blank slate means the perfect opportunity for creativity and experiments.
