Miss Betty NEW Product Renee Aslette Scrapbooking layout

“These Are The Days” layout by Renee Aslette

February 2, 2018

Hello Lovelies,

It’s Renee here, to share with you a layout I created using the new Miss Betty Collection.

I have also used the Miss Betty Clear Stamps.  OMG!!  I am in love with these stitching stamps.

CS321 Miss Betty – Clear Stamp 

This is how the layout turned out.

I knew instantly that I wanted to use P2483 Needlework (Reverse) as my background paper.

It had pieces of torn paper featured on a cream background.

I also knew that I wanted to get stamping using the Miss Betty Collection Clear Stamp Set CS321.

This is the background I created with some of the patterned paper and the stamps.  I used the Ink Pads – Black and Petal Pink.

Here are some close-ups:

As you can see I used the Square Stitching stamp from the Miss Betty Clear Stamps and I only inked the areas that would surround the patterned paper.

There are loads of layers on this layout.  I have also used stickers from the Sticker Sheet, Collectables and Wooden Flourishes all from this amazing collection.

To balance the right hand corner of the layout, I added some layers and stamping.

Here you can see the corner stitching from the Clear Stamps has been used.  I followed through with the same thing in the bottom left hand corner.

I used the ticket from the Sticker Sheet for the title of my layout “These Are The Days”.

Documented Renee Aslette Tutorial Tuesday

Create a Vintage Layout using the Documented Collection

January 16, 2018

Hello There Crafters,

It’s Renee here, to share with you, a tutorial on how to create a Mixed Media Vintage Layout using the Documented Collection, including the Typography Template and Clear Stamps.

I start by using the Documented Collection P2462 Lockers (Reverse) as the background.

I want to create layers and texture.  So  next I am going to use Whipped Spackle and the IT030 Mini Designer Template – Typography along the right side of the page.

I allow this to dry naturally.

Using a dry brush, I add some White Gesso to the centre of the page and then also allow it to dry naturally.

To create the above affect, I use a combination of the IP719 Ink Pad – Black and a Tim Holtz Distress Ink Oxide – Vintage Photo.  Using a piece of empty packaging plastic, I add some of the ink and then stamp in the section I would like it to go, focusing more on the areas where the gesso is and around where the photo will be.

Here is a close-up:

Using CS785 Clear Stamp – Typewriter Font and an acrylic block, add some letters in random spots on the block to create an alphabet stamp.

I wanted add another pop of colour, so I use IP723 Ink Pad – Vintage and the Ruler from CS319 Clear Stamp – Documented.

Here is a short video to show you how I created the stamping technique.

This is what it looked like after I completed the stamping.

Here is a close-up:

From here it was a matter of finishing with various Patterned Paper, Collectables and Die Cuts from the Documented Collection.

The Title “Memories Together” came from SS355 Sticker Sheet – Document Collection.

Tearing sheets of Patterned Paper give this layout a vintage feel.

I love this collection and I know you will too.

I hope you were inspired and thank you for stopping by.

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.

Planner Renee Aslette Romantique

November Planner Layouts using Romantique

November 20, 2017

Hi There,

It’s Renee Aslette here to share with you my new Kaisercraft Large Planner, and some of the planner layouts I have started creating for November using the Romantique Collection.

SA054

When this beauty arrived I was so excited.  This planner is just so classic with rose gold foil accents.  I knew Romantique would be the perfect collection to start with.

This is the inside of the cover.  I have added embellishments to the pockets in the front left of the planner.  These can come in useful at any time to help me plan.  I used the Romantique Collection Collectables for this.

I cut out a dashboard to go behind the amazing transparency using the P2427 Eiffel.  I then added a collectable that says “You are Amazing.” I cut out a butterfly from the Specialty Transparency, hole punched and added to the bottom D Ring.

I know from my own experience, that I don’t always get to use some of those amazing quotes on the Sticker Sheet, so why not use them on your planner?  We all need some inspiration.

That beautiful Rose Collectable fitted perfectly on the page.

The second week of my planner seen a slightly different colour scheme, but still using the Romantique Collection.  Another quote was perfect.

I layered the Collectables from this collection on this planner layout.

I also made a butterfly paper clip to take me to the page that I have a bill to be paid for, like a reminder.  I made the paperclip by using a Collectable and then enforcing the paperclip between two layers with strong glue.

I really hope you have enjoyed this different way to use your Kaisercraft Collections.

See you next time.

Renee Aslette

Mint Wishes Renee Aslette Tuesday Tutorials

Stamping and Layers using Mint Wishes

October 3, 2017

Hi There,

It’s Renee Aslette, here to share with you a Tutorial on how to use stamping and layers to add dimension to your layout.

Today, I will be using the fabulous new range released this month called Mint Wishes.

This collection excites me in so many ways.  It is not your traditional Christmas palette. But who doesn’t love mint?

The P2401 Cabin patterned paper is what I am using for my background.  It is such a classic sheet using wood paneling, so much can be done with this page alone.

I start by using a bowl to draw a circle in the top centre of the layout.  This is going to allow me to have some guidelines for my wreath that will appear over the photo that I use.

I do the same to the photo, that will sit perfectly in the same circle.

I have created a Video Tutorial below to show you all of the steps I made to put this layout together.

With the CS310 Mint Wishes Clear Stamp Set, I put the two leaves onto the acrylic block, then use the IP719 Black Ink Pad stamping around the circle.

It is then time to layer a combination of DD803 Die Cut – Layered Fir Tree and the CT891 Collectables, I raise some of these pieces using foam dots, and then the remaining pieces are glued.

I finish off by adding the pine trees sticker from SS348 – Sticker Sheet, along the bottom of the layout.

As an extra I cut some logs out of the PP1027 Paper Pad.

As you can see from this close up, you can still very much see the stamping in the background.

I created the title with a combination of the Collectables word “Love” and the Sticker Sheet.

Kaisercraft Products:  Mint Wishes Collection – P2401  Cabin | PP1029 Paper Pad | SS348 Sticker Sheet | CT891 Collectables | CS310 Clear Stamps | IP719 Ink Pad Black | DD803 Die Cut – Layered Fir Tree | F649 Mini Paper Blooms – Sage | CS241 – Acrylic Stamp Block | T321 Acid Free Craft Glue | T320 Double Sided Tape | T302 Mounting Foam Dots.

Thank you so much for stopping by! xx. I cannot wait to see what you create with this amazing collection.
