Be You Layout Tutorial by Mabel Sim

July 24, 2018

Hi Friends!

It’s Mabel here today and I am sharing with you my final layout I designed for Kaisercraft using the gorgeous Gypsy Rose collection.

The past 1 year had been hectic but oh-so-fruitful. I managed to snap up a job after my graduation and to design for Kaisercraft all at the same period of time! I must thank Kaisercraft for giving me this once in a lifetime opportunity and I am sad to bid goodbye.

Sad words aside, I am pretty sure you had seen other designers scrapping with this gorgeous collection. I am in love with the colour scheme and this is a perfect example of girly rustic theme.

I first started out with P2574 Quirky and reverse side of P2568 Inspiring. I thought that the contrast brought out was pretty.

After which, I layered reverse side of P2573 Thatching. The purpose is to create intersect lines so as to capture viewers’ attention.

To create more effects, I had used IP725 Petal Pink inkpad as my stamping ink on my layout base as Inspiring is dark coloured. I will need to select light pastel base ink in order for my stamping to show.

As I don’t require precise stamping, I would tend to prefer inking my stamp directly instead of pulling them from their plastic sheet. It does save me the convenience of looking for my acrylic stamping pad.

After I am satisfied with the result, I went ahead to cut my photo mat to a size slightly bigger than my photo. I had used the reverse side of Quirky.

To add some special texture to my layout, I decided to layer cheesecloth under my photo mat.

The trick to using cheesecloth would be to cut them into your desired size, and gently pull them apart so as to create a more natural effect.

Generally, the structure of my layout is completed! After adhering embellishments, my layout would be officially completed.

Ta-da! Here are some close up shots.

Art Foam Flower Tutorial

July 17, 2018

Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a great week. I have been playing with some art foam, and I came up with some                         different ways of creating flowers using one die.

These three flowers were created using only two petals. But by making one alteration, three different flowers were created.

The above flower uses the largest petal from the die, die cut three times. It was shaped by scrunching the tops and                              embellished by using stamens in the centre.

The final two flowers use the smaller petal from the die. Their construction is the same except for the shaping of the petals.                    Another variation of flower from DIY Flora Gerbera die.

Below is a video tutorial explaining how each of these flowers was made.

 

Once you have created these beautiful flowers, it’s always wonderful to incorporate them into your projects.

Hi There Friends,

I am so excited about this month’s new releases.  Especially the Hide and Seek Collection.

This collection is so versatile, it has elements for both the females and males in your life.  To top that off, the colours are AMAZING!!

So with that in mind, I thought I would create a layered layout using the Hide and Seek Collection, including a video for you to see how it all came together.

So that’s me in this layout, wonky teeth and all!!

Here are some close-ups:

Loads of pretty embellishments are featured around the photo.

The gorgeous leaves are created by using the PP1047 Hide and Seek Paper Pad and the DD169 Decorative Die – Double Vine.

The title Dream Big Little One is a Clear Stamp from the Collection and the Kaisercraft Black Ink Pad.

To see how this layout was created you can watch this video.

Tag mini album tutorial by Tatiana Yemelyanenko

May 15, 2018

Hello Kaisercraft fans!

Tatiana is here with you today and I have a new video tutorial for you. This time I have created a tag mini album. I chose to use Spring themed photographs and I think that the new Memory Lane collection is ideal for this project.

For my project I used 6 1/2 ” paper set and combined it with silver glitter cardstock. All frames have been cut using a ruler and craft knife.

I covered the wooden flourishes with silver embossing powder.

For adding a touch of bling to my project I used rhinestones, sequins and glitter.

Pages featuring photographs have been embellished with transparent stickers and rhinestones.

Kaisercraft Products: PP1043 Paper Pad | CT936 Collectables | SS362 Sticker Sheet | FL624 Flourish Pack | CS326 Clear Stamps | GC103 Glitter Cardstock – Platinum | SB707 Rhinestones – Mint Green | RS406 Blue Grey | SB784 Pearls – Ice Green | T324 Glaze Paste

Other: Glitter, Sequins, White Mist, Sparklets, Embossing Powder

Below is a video tutorial featuring this project.

I hope you enjoyed my project and tutorial.

Bye!

Pen and Ink Renee Aslette Tutorial Tuesday

“LOVE” a Pen and Ink Layout Tutorial by Renee Aslette

April 17, 2018

Hello Friends,

Today is all about the “LOVE”.

I have used the Pen and Ink Collection to create this Tuesday Tutorial.

I began with the background P2510 Wallpaper, then I tore a piece to the left and right of P2511 Lacey paper.

I always like to layout my embellishments and photo mat so that I know where they will sit.

I then set about creating a stamped background with the CS324 Clear Stamp set from this collection.  I used the Kaisercraft Ink Pad – Black and the floral stamp from the set.  Here is what it looked like before I lay everything down.

Some of it does get covered, but there will be pieces that pop out.

Then it is just a matter of layering.

Below you will find a video tutorial that will show you how I created the layers.

Here are some close-ups:

I love how this collection can be used with the neutral colourings, or you could add a pop of colour.

I added a little Printed Tape – Arrows Black to this layout, and it was the perfect combination.

Here you can see some of the stamping detail.

DD443 Decorative Die – Film Edges was used for a piece of the layering along with all the beautiful pieces from the Collectables and the Sticker Sheet.

Here is the video:
