A Frosted Christmas

September 7, 2016

Hi everyone, Sonia here with the absolutely amazing ‘Frosted’ Collection! The colour palette in this collection will have you reaching for your Christmas photos in no time at all with the beautiful silvery blues, greys and white.

When I opened this collection, there was one of the patterned papers that just leapt out at me – it was so different and so beautiful! I can imagine all sorts of uses for the ‘Blizzard’ Foil and Die Cut paper (PS464). The detail and depth to the image on this paper is simply stunning!

PS464 ‘Blizzard Foil & Die Cut’


‘Merry Christmas’

Kaisercraft products used: P2166 ‘Arctic’ | PS464 ‘Blizzard’ | FL584 Flourish Pack Snowflakes | SB2115 10″ Frame | PT226 Steel Glitter Tape | GC103 Platinum Glitter Cardstock | DD735 Uppercase Alphabet Die | ST920 Clear Stickers Merry Christmas | ST921 Clear Stickers Seasons Greetings | SB700 Silver Rhinestones | F636 Ruby Paper Blooms | F653 Ruby Mini Blooms | F630 Iceberg Paper Blooms | EM995 Paper Leaves

Other: Diamond Dust, Silver Embossing Powder | Florists Wire, Berries

I wanted to hang this on my wall so I felt I needed to add some depth to the frame. First I took the 10″ Frame and inserted the ‘Arctic’ paper. Then I edged the frame with the Steel Glitter Tape – Christmas projects always needs a bit of sparkle!!!

SB2115 10″ Frame


Next I cut out the centre piece of the ‘Blizzard’ paper and then edged the inside with some of the Steel Glitter Tape to help blend my pieces together:

Then it was a matter of having some fun and embellish away!

 I used the gorgeous Glitter Cardstock in Platinum with the Uppercase Alphabet Die to cut out the title:

The Flourish Pack Snowflakes add dimension and sparkle when heat embossed in silver and some Silver Rhinestones added:

Hopefully you are feeling a little bit of that Christmas magic and are in the mood to either get ahead on your Christmas creating or maybe just catch up on last years photos!

Happy creating!

‘Christmas Wishes’ Off The Page with Collette & Sonia

August 17, 2016


Where would Christmas be without wonderful ornaments designed to sparkle and create Christmas cheer.

Today Collette and Sonia spread some wonderful Christmas cheer with their little, but festive packed Beyond the Page items. Hang them on the tree, create a wall display or give them as  a special gift.

Whatever you choose to do with these easy to make creations, they will bring happy smiles and Christmas Spirit!

Festive Wall Art by Collette Mitrega

I was given the three beautiful Christmas ornaments to decorate and create with, using the ‘Christmas Wishes’ collection.


SB2437 Xmas Word Decorations

SB2435SB2435 Snowflake Decorations


SB2434 Bauble Decorations

I must say I do love Christmas ornaments and it is well know that if someone asks me what I would love as a gift, I always say a Christmas ornament!

I love decorating the tree. Each year I unwrap my treasure and happy memories of the person who gave it to me come flooding back. For me, as well as being my Christmas tree, it is also my memory tree!

Although my three beautiful ornaments could stand alone as stunning gifts, I decided to do a wall display that I could take out each year and hang for some sparkling Christmas cheer!

DSC_0892 (2)

I started by selecting the papers for each window. On one of the scenes I used a Kaisercraft snowflake template and texture past, while the paste was still wet I sprinkled with glitter ….. after all it is Christmas!

Once these were marked up and cut to size I painted the frame with Kaiser paint in white.  A few coats gave a lovely crisp finish. I then stuck the decorative papers cut earlier in position and stuck the frame down.

Now the fun part!!


For this little vignette, I placed a gorgeous photo of Abbey on a matt and decorated with collectables and stickers. ‘

The reindeer and sleigh are from the ‘Wooden Flourish Sleigh Scene’ – aren’t they simply gorgeous? I spritzed the wooden items with white Kaisermist to soften their look and sprinkled with micro fine gold glitter.

Kaisercrafts new release Pearl string in gold  were perfect for the reigns.

In this little vignette, I cut a second Santa out and popped him up. You cannot see the effect so well here but it is wonderful and three dimensional.

I love how that little collectable diamond looks so real …. if only!!


The Christmas bauble is my favourite ornament. After painting it white I covered the edge in rhinestones.

The gold foil that sits in the background catches the light beautifully! Did I tell you that you get two ornaments in each pack?

I will definately be making the additions into gifts and rhinestones will feature loudly!

DSC_0896 (2)

          I painted the ‘XMAS’ title with Kaisercrafts gold paint. It is a beautiful paint; such a beautiful shimmery colour!

While it was still wet I sprinkled on some micro fine glitter ….. of course!

Other Products Used: Gold Ribbon | Sparkle Mist | Gold and clear glitter.

I had the best fun making this project. I know that it will bring a smile to my face and happy creative memories each year. I also know that it will look stunning on my wall and be a talking piece at Christmas. Why  not create your own little memory for Christmas?



‘Angel Decorations’ by Sonia Thomason

Like Collette I love Christmas and couldn’t wait to start playing with the gorgeous decorations I was sent, along with the beautiful ‘Christmas Wishes’ collection. Now I have two angels of my own – my two daughters! So I thought I would use these Angel Decorations as stand alone decorations for my tree this Christmas to represent my two girls:

Kaisercraft products used: PP1003 Christmas Wishes Paper Pad | GC105 Champagne Glitter Cardstock | SB2436 Angel Decorations | FL581 Flourish Pack Doilies | LD81059 Natural Twine | 

Other: Gold embossing powder

I added some of the hearts that are included in the pack to the bottom of each of the angels. The hearts are covered in the gorgeous Glitter Cardstock in Chanpagne – a little bit of glitter just says ‘Christmas’!!!

‘Bird Decorations’ by Sonia Thomason

How cute are these gorgeous new ‘Bird Decorations’?!!! They are just divine and full of character – and that’s before they have been decorated!

Bird Decorations SB2433

Bird Decorations

I thought it would be lovely to use these birds to make a Christmas display using one of the new shadow box frames. The frame has a prop on the back so you can either hang the frame on the wall or pop it on a table for your Christmas decorating!

Kaisercraft products used: P2142 ‘Bauble Garland’ | PP1003 Christmas Wishes Paper Pack | CT862 Christmas Wishes Collectables |  SB2433 Bird Decorations | FL581 Flourish Pack Doilies | LD81059 Natural Twine | RS408 Crystal Sparklets | EM435 Silver Pearl String | SF815 Distressed Antique White Shadow Box Frame

Other: White Embossing Powder and twigs

I cut the doilies from the Collectables pack in half and added it to one of the wooden Flourish Pack Doilies to create wings for the birds. Adding two of the silver pearls from the Silver Pearl String adds some texture and contrast

These decorations are so much fun to play with and so versatile! Why not pick some up today and have a play! Happy creating,

Christmas wishes, with Kirsten Hyde

August 15, 2016

Kaisercraft is out with their first Christmas collection for this year, Christmas wishes. I wanted to create a little Christmas present with the collection.  I ended up, creating a little Christmas ornament with a church with lights. I also created a little box from for the ornament.


The box has windows on two of the sides, so the ornament inside the box can be seen.


The box opens, and the base is made as a base for the ornament, so it can be seen as a snow globe.



The ornament can be lifted and used as a little Christmas ornament. The acrylic ball is 10cm in diameter.


On the base, the ornament looks like a little snow globe.


Video of the ornament:

Other: Acrylic ornament, cardboard, led light, electrical wires, miniature switch and 3v battery.

Wishing you happy Christmas crafting

July Projects with Alicia + Video!

July 25, 2016

Hello Kaisercrafters, Alicia here with you today!  I’m happy to be sharing some Cards, Beyond the Page Projects and a Layout using the two gorgeous Kaisercraft collections for the month of July, Mademoiselle and Bon Appetite.


Project One – “Awesome Little Helper” Layout

Kaisercraft Bon Appetit Layout by Alicia McNamara with Process Video

I had a lovely time making this fresh and modern layout using the Bon Appetit collection.  It is featuring my little helper in the Kitchen.

Kaisercraft Bon Appetit Layout by Alicia McNamara with Process Video

I pin so many gorgeous layouts on Pinterest (Follow me here if you love pinning cards and layouts too!) and I realised just recently that so many of them have white backgrounds.  I haven’t done a Layout with a white background in ages so I thought I would give it a go with this collection.  I chose a monochromatic colour scheme with bright red highlights.

I filmed a process video for this Layout that you might be interested in watching.

The Mademoiselle collection really inspired the card maker inside of me and I had a lovely time making cards with these gorgeous papers.  This collection is full of beautiful flowers and butterflies, just perfect for making some lovely cards for your card stash.

Project Two – Friendship Card

I had a lovely time arranging a big cluster of flowers in the centre of this card.  I’m saving this card to send to a special friend.

Project Three – A Trio of Mini Note Cards

Kaisercraft Mademoiselle Cards by Alicia McNamara

I made a little trio of small note cards.  These would be perfect for a little gift tag to decorate a present.  This collection has a lovely vintage feel to it.  The Kaisercraft cream lace goes perfectly with the colours in the papers and I have teamed it with some Kaisercraft organza ribbon and mini paper blooms.

Project Four – Butterfly Birthday Card

Kaisercraft Mademoiselle Butterfly Card by Alicia McNamara

For a more modern look I cut a large butterfly from the collection and stamped the Butterfly background stamp a couple of times to make some more butterflies.  I used corrugated card  as the background paper with some strips of paper and swirls layered over the top.

I placed some mounting tape in between the three layers of the butterfly to keep the wings nicely elevated.

I added some twine and ribbon and mini paper blooms on the top of the layered butterfly.

I have made several of these little frames in the past, using different collections of Kaisercraft papers, and I just love how quickly and easily they go together to make a nice gift for someone.  This one I have made as a birthday gift for my Aunty who is celebrating a significant milestone this month.
