IT924 Textures IT925 Intricate Tiles
Today’s post is all about adding texture to a project. What better way to add texture than using one of Kaisercraft’s Designer Templates. The Design Team had a choice of using one of two Designer Templates: IT924 Textures or IT925 Intricate Tiles to add texture to their project. The Layouts, Cards and Beyond the Page Projects you will see in this post will really amaze you! Each member of the Design Team have taken these products and creatively used them in their own style of paper crafting. There are plenty of ideas and inspiration for you in this post…lets take a look at their creations…
“Happiness is a Perfect day” – A House box, by Kirsten Hyde
I got inspired by all the doors in this collection, and created a box that looks like a little house. I have used the Ubud Dreams collection together with a designer template to create some extra texture to the little house.

‘Happy Birthday’ Card by Collette Mitrega
A super easy and quick card ….. really!!!
I love how it looks do you?
I took some smooth white card (CD650), popped the whole template on the card and spread texture paste all over, just before I went to bed.
In the morning it was dry and I cut the four designs apart and selected the design I wanted to work on.
I swiped Kaisercraft ink pads over the card in a diagonal design and while the ink pads were out, I coloured the little wooden butterfly.
I splashed a few drops of candy pink Kaiser Mist and a generous spritz of white Kasier Mist …. just because I love getting messy!
I simply finished the card with Kaiser flowers, and a layer of cheesecloth!
Then I washed my messy hands lol!!

Ho, Ho, Ho…its nearly Christmas!!! Today the Design Team are sharing a favourite Christmas Project from 2016. Take a look at these beautiful creations…
“Christmas Ornament in a Box” by Kirsten Hyde
I have created a few Christmas projects this autumn. My favourite is probably one of my Christmas ornaments. I do like to create these ornaments, and I often create a few different ones every Christmas. This one has a little glitter house church inside.
The ornament has been put on a base, so it can be shown on the base or hang on the tree or in the window.

‘Believe’ scrapbook layout by Terhi Koskinen
I decided to choose this to my very favorite Chirtsmas layout, as I loved drawing the deer head! It was easy and very fun, just first drawed the outlines through the template and then added lots of smaller lines to make more hand draw look. Try it, it’s so much fun!

“You are special to me” – Layout by Kirsten Hyde
People often ask me how I store my layouts, and if I put them in albums. My layouts are often very dimensional, and therefor there is not enough room in an album. I often frame them and put them up on the wall. This layout has got an old wooden frame.

‘Adventure’ Card by Collette Mitrega
I decided to do a mixed media background, they are fun to do, a wee bit messy and the good news is you don’t make any mistakes – anything goes!
I die cut the wonderful ‘Mixed Media Circles’ Die (DD786), and popped it down on a 3 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ piece of white card.
I used a palette knife to spread some texture paste on top.
I then removed the die cut, (popped it aside for another project!), and waited for my texture paste to dry, (you could use a heat gun, but I had dinner to organise!).
Once dry, I gently rubbed some Kaisercraft stamp pads on the design and random stamped some words so they blended into the background.
I then splattered with Kaisercraft paint – it got everywhere but was surprisingly therapeutic lol!!
At this stage I loved how it looked and stopped the messy stuff and assembled the card with papers and collectables from ‘High Tide’.
Hope you get to play too!

I felt the layout needed some depth with a darker coloured flower. As I didn’t have any dark blue flowers, I took some of the Coconut (white) blooms and sprayed them heavily with the Denim Kaiser Mist:

Now its your turn…have a play with the new “High Tide” Collection and the new “Mixed Media Circles Die” or “Anchors Away” Template…we cant wait to see what you come up with!
Happy Crafting : )
Sometimes life gets pretty hectic and scrapbooking gives you that little outlet that allows you to slow down and take a breath! With the end of school term approaching and Christmas not long after that, I had the urge to sit down and just play. An art journal is a wonderful way to do this – no rules, just get messy and have fun!
The new P.S. I love you collection features gorgeous dusty pinks and deep shades of grey. The beautiful floral and vintage imagery provides endless inspiration to start creating. I was drawn to the softness of the flowers on the ‘Beloved’ paper (P2209) and it’s reverse side – a fabulous Dictionary script
‘The Best is Yet to Be’ a Journal page
Kaisercraft products used: P2209 ‘Beloved’ | IT922 Designer Template Butterfly | KM102 Kaiser Mist Antique Gold | KM110 Kaiser Mist Pink | KM111 Kaiser Mist White | ST929 Clear Stickers Inspirational |
The background is made up of Kaiser Mists in Pink and Antique Gold. These have both been sprayed with a water bottle to make them more like water colours and this also makes them easier to move around the page.
When using Mixed Media, the Kaisercraft Clear Stickers are great to use as they will stick on your page. Once you have some mediums onto your page it can be difficult to get rub ons to take.
The new Designer Template – Butterfly is stunning. It provides you with 4 amazing designs so you are never stuck for choice! I chose the ‘The best is yet to be’ quote and as you can see, the texture paste worked really well with it
I hope I have given you some ideas for your next lot of creating! The new P.S. I love you collection is stunning and you will have many happy hours playing with these gorgeous pages!
