Romantique Layout with Process Video by Alicia

November 17, 2017

Are you loving the Romantique Collection as much as I am?

There are lots of lovely pastel colours in this collection, but today I picked out the more natural tones to suit my photograph.

This collection has a beautiful page of butterflies.  I adore butterflies and I love to use them in my projects.  They make creating so easy.  I fussy cut some from this paper and then used them in my Layout.

P2426 Primrose


I also wanted to use a new Template:

IT455 6×6 Designer Template – Fleur Damask

and one of my old favourites:

IT001 Designer Templates – Cherry Blossom

I filmed a Process Video of how I made the layout if you would like to take a look…

Decorative Dies

I used two Decorative Dies in my Layout:

DD547 – Circle Vines

and my trusty favourite:

DD757 Large Flourishes

I wove these dies in and out of the butterflies in my diagonal design.

Live with a full heart ~ Rose Avenue Layout Photo Tutorial by Donna Espiritu

October 10, 2017


Hello!  Donna here sharing a scrapbook layout I created using the Rose Avenue collection.

I think this is my favorite from the new collections so far. Primarily because of the florals and pastel colors! I love this combination and there’s a ton of patterns to fussy cut as well. Heaven!

I usually print 2 sizes of photos and since I didn’t want one to go to waste or left unused, I decided to place the photos side by side as I did here with my page. I used a doily to add visual interest.

I did a bit of mixed media to my background first and added some colors using metallique acrylic paints and ink pads.

I mixed different shades of pink and turquoise to achieve the background

I love how the strips of paper looked like after! I used foam tapes to lift the scalloped edges instead of leaving it flat. Then I went into town embellishing the whole page. I love this particular quote (which is in the product strip! So don’t throw those away, you can still use them like I did here!) and I think it matched the mood and angle of my daughter’s photo like she’s facing or looking towards something bright.

Rose Avenue is such a beautiful collection!

Here is a short tutorial I prepared for you.

That’s all from me today. I hope you liked my page!
Enjoy and Happy crafting,

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.
