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.

‘Oh Christmas Tree’ with Collette

September 23, 2016

Hi papercrafters!

DSC_0267

I have been getting very festive and my Christmas cards are in full swing.

Just loving the ‘Silent Night’ and ‘Frosted’ collections this month!

Today I thought I would share my ‘Christmas Spirit Box’ with you –  well, that’s what mine will be, I will tell you all about it in my video!

It’s what I call a triple drop down (or explosion) box and in the center is a grand Christmas Tree, just like you would find in a busy city center at Christmas.

I wanted to share how I created this little beauty so again, I have made a video which will take you through its creation so you can play too.

‘OOPS’ scrapbook layout by Terhi Koskinen

September 16, 2016

Hello Kaisercraft fans!

Terhi Koskinen here sharing my latest creation with brand new ‘Frosted’ collection, and showing you the coolest title ever.
K_SEP_OOPS (1)

Coolest and the most interesting title (at least in my opinion) can be made with a simple recipe: Paper, stencil, needle and thread. If you want to try out doing the same as I did, here’s a simple step-by-step tutorial for you:

  1. First draw the title through a stencil to the backside of the paper. Remember to keep your letter mirrored.
  2. Then by using a thin needle, make little holes to the edges of the letters.
  3. Last, add thread all way over, and cut the title out.

Making this was easy and I love the dimentional look of the finished letters!

K_SEP_OOPS (2)

As much as I love trying out new techniques like this easy hand sticthed title, I love capturing special moments. Actually, memorykeeping is what keeps me scrapbooking years after years. Our albums are much more than just happy birthdays and smiling with Santa Claus – in addition to first mentioned, I want our albums to look like our life. There are happy moments, there is everyday life, there is running to gorcery store to getting milk, and there is falling with ice skates when learning how to go forward. There is our life, in good and in bad.

K_SEP_OOPS (3)

This photograph was taken couple years ago, and I wish I could add the sound of laugh to it! Learning skating can be tricky, but also so much fun, especially when the younger one had heard about cool falling tips. She wanted to make sure she can really fall with good technique before skating quickly.

‘Frosted’ collection was the best choice for this winter layout, and I just love how the dark brown, whites, and different shades of blues are working together perfectly.

I hope you feel inspired!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Decorative Dies Design Team Kaiser Mists Layouts NEW Product Papercraft Rikki Graziani Silent Night

Merry and Bright

September 12, 2016

Good Morning Rikki here today to show you the new Kaisercraft Christmas range – Silent Night. 

This range is perfect for those who love traditional Christmas colour, embellishments, and the rich tones that you think of when you think about Christmas. 

 

_MG_0789

Kaisercraft Products: Silent Night : P2154 Bake Gingerbread | SS320 Sticker Sheet | PP1004 Paper Pad | CT863 Collections | FL583 Flourish Pack – Joy  | SB796 Pearls – Green | DD566 Decorative Die – Holly Circle |KM111 – White | KM104 – Lime Green | KM117 – Apple | F633 –  Olive | F650 -Olive | IT914  Designer Template – Grunge | Other: White Gesso | Texture Paste. 

_MG_0793

When I created this layout I was really drawn to the rich wood grain paper and I knew straight away that it could handle a mixed media background.

_MG_0794

To create the background I just swiped some white gesso where I wanted the photo to go, added a little texture with IT914 | Designer Template – Grunge, allowed that to dry. Then added my two background colours of KM117 | Apple and KM104 | Lime Green – try and allow naturally as this allows the green tones to stay to the surface.

_MG_0798

I love the FL583 | Flourish Pack – Joy, it comes with Pine Tree Sprigs they can be altered with your standard stamping ink, I used a combination of Kaisercraft Ink – IP733 | Vine and IP730 | Avocado making it two toned. Then they are just added among your flower clusters.

_MG_0799

The same technique was applied to the FL583 |Flourish Pack – Joy‘s Acorns using Kaisercraft Ink –  IP724 | Bark  and IP722 | Red Gum.

Till next time, have a creative day.

Frosted Snowflake layout~ A tutorial with Kylie Kingham

September 6, 2016

Hello everyone, it’s Kylie with you all today with a tutorial of my ‘Frosted Snowflake’ layout. I’m using the new ‘Frosted’ Christmas collection which is absolutely beautiful.Lots of blue and silver hues! Thanks to the lovely paper prints and collectables in this range, I really wanted to create a special “Snowflake’ theme, with lots of texture and layers.Before I show you the process, here is a photo of the completed layout.IMG_8484_opt

I really love how it all came together, and found it quite hard to narrow down to what papers to use as they are all so beautiful!

IMG_8310_opt (1)

I selected P2168 Polar as my top paper and P2163 Chilly as my border piece.The first thing I always do is take a pencil and mark in whereabouts I will sit my photo.

IMG_8312_opt

Next, I remove 1cm (3/8″) off each side of my top sheet.I also remove an inner square from my border piece, leaving a little over an inch.(Don’t throw away the inner square, you can save it for something else!)

IMG_8322_opt

Next, I glued the border piece to plain cardstock CD101 Coconut.

You can set this aside to dry, whilst you work on your top layer piece.

Next, I painted the top sheet with clear Gesso and allowed it to dry.

IMG_8333_opt

I then proceeded to start adding some Kaisermist in Denim KM106. I diluted mine with a little water before spraying directly onto my page and then blending with some paper towel.This helps soften the effect.

(Kaisermists are some of my most favourite products.The possibilities with them are endless,so versatile!)

IMG_8344_opt

Once the Kaisermist had dried I then very sparingly, sponged some white Gesso over the top.This gave a marbled effect.

IMG_8355_opt

Next I set to work using the Designer Template Holly IT916. I chose the flower design as I thought it looked like little snowflakes.I just wanted them to look soft and randomly placed.I was mindful of where I had outlined my photo placement as well with this process and evenly applied some texture paste to the template.

IMG_8377_opt

Whilst the texture paste was still wet I went ahead and applied some silver glitter, embossing powder and heat.

IMG_8379_opt

I really loved the effect this gave!

IMG_8409_opt

Next I started tearing a piece from the corner behind where my photo will be positioned.I made it in the shape of a number seven, and proceeded to do some mountain folds and pinch them into place.So it looked like an accordian.

TIP: It’s easy to do this process if you very lightly mist the area with water first.

IMG_8429_opt

 I also made a small triangle tear on the bottom left hand side.I then distressed the edges a little of the entire page and added diluted Kaisermist Coffee KM113 with a sponge to the edges.Next I added some ink splots by gently tapping the applicator of Kaisermists White KM111,Denim KM106 and Winter Grey KM112.

IMG_8439_opt

IMG_8442_opt

Using the papers from the 6″ x 6″ paper pad PP1005 I created a backing piece for my photo as well as in behind the torn sections of my page.This adds a nice contrast.

Using pieces of Corrugated cardboard CB153 glued together, I added some packing for height to just one side of my photo.I didn’t need do the other side as the accordian fold on the top sheet will support it.

IMG_8443_opt

IMG_8446_opt

Now I begin the fun of layering mixed elements to my page.I have used the below listed products-

White lace EM926 | Snowflake flourish pack FL584 | Iceberg paper blooms F630 | Coconut paper blooms F627 | Iceberg mini blooms F647 | Coconut mini blooms F644 | Collectables CT864 | 

Other- Pearl string | Netting | Seed beads

IMG_8456_opt

The final step was to adhere the top page to its border.I also gently folded in small sections, here and there of the outside edge of my top sheet to give a more shabby chic appearance.

I hope you have enjoyed my project today and that it may inspire you to go create your own masterpiece!

Until next time,
