Gift box Video Tutorial by Julia Akinina

February 21, 2017

Hello! Today Julia is here with the gift box step-by-step video tutorial using the Island Escape Collection.

Kaisercraft products: P2242 Island Escape – Aloha| PP1014 Island Escape – Paper Pad | CT874 Island Escape  – Collectables | FL594 Life’s a Beach Flourish pack | SB713 Pearl Pearls | ST922 Happy Birthday 

And here is the video-tutorial! I hope you will enjoy it!

My measurements for this box  are in centimeters. You can create the box with your own measurements, just look how I do it in the video: the first dedail is larger than the banknote, and for the second detail I added 0,5 centimeters to the width, and 2 x 0,5cm = 1 centimeter to the length. Don’t forget to add 1-2 millimeters to the middle detail! You need to do it for good closing and opening of the box.

And here is the result. I love this box!

I hope my tutorial will help you to create beautiful gift boxes of the different sizes!

Thank you

Kaisercraft Layouts NEW Product Papercraft Tuesday Tips Tuesday Tutorials Tutorials

Tutorial Tuesday Plus More with Amanda Baldwin

April 19, 2016

Hi Kaisercrafters!

Welcome back for another super fun Tutorial Tuesday!

Amanda here, & today I have a fabulous mixed media layout that features 4 different techniques to try with your Kaisermists! It is tons of fun, so let’s get straight into it ;)

Here’s my layout created with the all NEW Sea Breeze collection….



I know, how awesome is this?!! I immediately fell in love with the Sea Breeze collection and it’s Specialty Gloss paper just beckoned for mixed media goodness! So many awesome tips and techniques here – enjoy!


Our first technique is ‘bagging’. To create a really cool effect, with a little more control than spraying your Kaisermist, simply apply with a soft plastic bag. (I use freezer bags but any soft plastic will work).

To apply, simply sponge the Kaisermisted bag in the areas where you want the colour…..


Really cool, huh? For this background, I ‘bagged’ Kaisermist Apple, & Turquoise.


Our second technique is to flick the Kaisermist nozzle for a more random, but small, splatter look. I used Charcoal Kaisermist for this effect.


Didn’t our first two techniques work well to create a fun, background effect? They also really highlight the embossed glossy pattern in the Specialty paper – which creates another layer of texture too!

While that background dries, grab some 400gsm artist paper and get inky!


You’ll need to use a permanent/waterproof black ink & the stunning new background stamp, Majestic Butterfly. I fill my paper with this stamp, so that I have a few options to get creative with.

Next, I select a few of my Kaisermist colours and use them as an alternative to watercolour paint…


(Yes, I paint outside the lines and messy! I don’t believe in time wasting & these butterflies are going to be fussy cut. So no need to be careful ;) )

Once my Kaisermist is dry, I use a waterproof, fine point, black pen to ‘touch up’ any of my stamping.


And now, grab your scissors and get fussy cutting! :)

Our fourth technique for fun ways to use your Kaisermists is to use them to hand colour our favourite Wooden Shapes. I sprayed my hearts with Kaisermist: Charcoal.


Tip: If the wood veneers are a little porous, allow to dry and then spray a second coat of colour over them.

Now, to get our layout complete, you’ll need to die cut the doilies in black cardstock, as shown below…


And now it’s time to assemble!

Attach some Sea Breeze Collectables, as well as staple some craft wire to the layout as shown…..


Next add a couple more of the Collectables, then add the larger doily.


Attach your photograph to the smaller doily then adhere to layout. Also attach the large, hand painted Majestic Butterfly in the centre of the large doily. Add a few paper & mini paper blooms in Grape.


Finally, add your title and those gorgeous Kaisermisted wooden hearts.




Super easy, tons of fun and WOW!!!

Hope you enjoyed learning a few different ways to use your Kaisermists!

Kaisercraft Products: PS448 | Ripple-Gloss, CD102 | Licorice, CT853 | Collectables, DD504 | Decorative Dies-Doilies, CS700 | Clear Stamper, CS258 | Clear Stamp- Background Majestic Butterfly, KM101 | Charcoal, KM105 | Turquoise, KM106 | Denim, KM117 | Apple, KM120 | Wisteria, LDB1054 | Wooden Shapes-Love, F665 | Grape, F670 | Grape. Other: Black permanent ink, Sharpie Fine Point-Blk, Craft Wire, Staples & 400gsm Paper.

As always, the NEW collections for this month were so incredible that I just had to create a few extra layouts with them!

Here’s more mixed media layouts with the super cool Sea Breeze collection…



Isn’t this cool?! I used the ‘bagging’ & nozzle ‘splatter’ techniques on this layout too!

I also used modeling paste & the Designer Template: Cobblestone to add more texture to the background. Here’s a closer look….


Love the ‘grungy’ feel that the cobblestones create, & how cool are the epoxy star stickers?! Perfect for boy pages!

Kaisercraft Products: CD102 | Licorice, P2018 | Waterfall, P2020 | Sea, SS310 | Sticker Sheet, CT853 | Collectables, DD552 | Decorative Die-Nesting Stitched Squares, IT901 | Designer Template-Cobblestone, KM101 | Charcoal, KM105 | Turquoise, KM111 | White, ST911 | Monochrome. Other: Flair, Modeling Paste, Staples, & Tag.

The next layout I am sharing features the same patterned paper & turquoise Kaisermist – but what a differrent look……..

“LOVE life”


So pretty! And those gorgeous painted stripes? Well, another cool way to use your Kaisermist is to add a few drops to gesso & mix! I love the softness of the colour in this one. The gold pops add a fun element, & keep an eye out for more glitter cardstock coming soon ;)

Here’s a closer look……


Love it! Such a very different look created with the same pattern paper.

Kaisercraft Products: CD101 | Coconut, P2018 | Waterfall, SS310 | Sticker Sheet, CT853 | Collectables, KM105 | Turquoise, PS397 | Gold Glitter, F627 | Coconut, F644 | Coconut. Other: Gold Doily, Sequins, Bunting & Gesso.

I could have kept creating with Sea Breeze all month long…..but there are two stunning collections this month, & the second one is Cottage Rose. It is prettiness overload!

Here’s my mixed media take on this very elegant & feminine collection….



I adore this! So elegant and pretty! And this time, I mixed  few drops of Kaisermist: Candy into my modeling paste and applied with a palette knife and the Lace Template. Just beautiful!

And yes, there’s that stunning Majestic Butterfly Stamp again too – I think it’s my new favourite!

Kaisercraft Products: CD101 | Coconut, P2074 | Garden, PP995 | Paper Pad, CT854 | Collectables, F641 | Dusty Pink, SB786| Rose, CS288 | Clear Stamp-Background Majestic Butterfly, IP719 | Black, DD500 | DD-Script Words, T629 | 12 x 12 Template-Lace, KM115 | Candy.

And now I am officially Mixed Media-ed out! Time for a couple classic pages to finish with today….

“Remember This Moment”


How sweet! And did I mention that Decorative Frame Embossing Folder?!! It’s stunning – take a close look….


Lots of beautiful layers here!

Kaisercraft Products: P2071 | Welcome, CT854 | Collectables, SS311 | Sticker Sheet, EF239 | Embossing Folder-Decorative Frame, F644 | Coconut, F627 | Coconut. Other: Vellum.

“Beautiful MEMORY”


A really simple, but oh-so-pretty page to finish my post with! I love this photograph and think it anchors both patterned papers perfectly! Just divine!

Kaisercraft Products: P2070 | Floral Bouquet, P2074 |Garden, PP995 | Paper Pad, CT854 | Collectables,  DD144 | Words-Beautiful Memory, DD504 | Doilies, Ip729 | Tangello, T303 | Foam Tape.

 And there you have it!

I hope I have inspired you to get creating (especially with your Kaisermists ;)  )

Thanks for stopping by,

Happy Arty Days, Amanda xo

Kaisercraft Layouts Papercraft Tuesday Tips

Terrific Tuesday with Alison Bevis

December 8, 2015


I’m doing a little tutorial for you today and when I started thinking of what to show you, I thought it might be interesting to create a layout with a minimum of ‘stuff’…

So, I’ve used just THREE sheets of patterned paper… and a wood flourish Title – That’s it!!

Oh and a trimmer, scissors, tape, foam and glue?

I looked at the beautiful images on this sheet

P2011 Recall


and knew there was enough to create some layers and to finish embellishing too!

A little bit of FUSSY CUTTING… it is one of my favourite things to do!



Then I needed a sheet that already had a bit of background interest, P2012 Timeless – as I set myself a challenge to just create with paper – if you choose to, this is a perfect chance to add some mixed media background techniques and some stamping too!!


I trimmed this sheet at 29cm x 29cm and distressed the edges roughly, and continued to scrunch – then layered it over another sheet, with a 90′ turn – one with a little bit of interest along the sides – P2008 Recollection


Now is the chance to utilise all the strips from the bottom of each sheet and I added some of the leftover squares and rectangles from the fussy cut sheet –


I checked there was room for my photo and continued to layer mostly horizontal but also some strips vertically –

and then I added the photo


…now it’s time to add all the fussy cut pieces to add some interest!!


Yes, I needed a title… I love the ‘Cherish and Love’ Wooden Flourishes – they just add something special to a project, don’t you think?


Kaisercraft Products – P2012 Timeless | P2008 Recollection | P2011 Recall | FL319 Wood Flourish ‘Love & Cherish’

Hope you’ve enjoyed a step by step look at creating a layout with only 3 sheets of patterned paper…and a Title!!

Thank you for stopping by,

But I’m pretty sure we all do that from time to time when creating
I really wanted my layout to have the pops of green across the page
