Tuesday Tutorial ~ Anthology Mixed Media Set of 10 Cards

June 12, 2018

Do you like to make cards?  Are you loving the Anthology Collection?  Last weekend I taught four classes at the Scrapbook and Paper Craft Expo in Brisbane and my Anthology ~ Set of 10 Cards was my most popular class.  So I thought I would make another set of Anthology Cards, but this time I chose to add a bit of Mixed Media into the cards as well.

I do enjoy making sets of ten cards.  This allows you to have a big stash of cards ready and on hand for those upcoming birthdays or when you need a quick thank you card etc.  The sentiments for each of these cards came from the back of the Paper Pad.  There are plenty of sentiments at the back of each Kaisercraft Paper Pad that are perfect for adding to a card.

I filmed a Video Tutorial for this Blog Post and I also have a written Step-By-Step Tutorial with photographs to assist you to re-create these cards.  I also have a lot of other tutorials on my You Tube Channel, if you are interested in Videos.  The corresponding written tutorials are on my blog.  All my projects, videos and tutorials feature Kaisercraft Products.

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!

  6. Add mounting tape to back of photo.  Secure in middle of triangle.

I used the new template: IT031 Stars and Moon Mini Template and I just love the stars in this template.  They are so delicately positioned and the white stands out so well on the dark blue paper.

I think my favourite paper from Stargazer is the ORBIT paper.  It is perfect for fussy-cutting and adds a nice floral touch to this collection.

Donna Espiritu Pen and Ink Scrapbooking layout Specialty Papers Tutorials

“Beautiful” Pen & Ink Layout by Donna Espiritu

April 24, 2018

Hello, everyone!
It’s Donna here with you today sharing a scrapbooking layout tutorial using the Pen and Ink collection. I’ve debated between making a card and layout. Of course, the layout won!

So, let’s start with the short step-by-step tutorial:

  1. I started with a white cardstock as the base. I will be trimming an inch off of this white cardstock later as you will see in the next steps. I mounted my photos with some foam tape for a bit of height.

2. To add texture and a bit of color, I used a mixture of black, brown and white metallic mists. I kept on adding white glimmer mist until it mixed beautifully with the brown and black mists. Using a heat tool, I dried the splatters before adding modeling paste with a spatula and stencil.

3. I placed a doily underneath the photo before adhering with glue.

4. I fussy cut a lot of images from one of the Pen & Ink specialty paper. I love how vibrant the black images are against the soft sepia tones of the papers in the collection.

5. As mentioned earlier, I trimmed an inch off the white cardstock. Then, I adhered it on the Lacey patterned paper.

6. I started embellishing after this with the Collectables and the rest of the fussy cut images from the specialty paper, Antiques.

7. For the final touch, I scattered black rhinestones following the diagonal flow of the page design.

Here are more detailed shots of the finished layout

I tucked in some wood flourishes and left them as is for a bit of color contrast.

I mounted some of the ephemera pieces with foam tape for dimension.

That’s all for now. I hope you liked my project! Do leave a comment if you have any questions regarding today’s project.

Thank you so much for dropping by and see you with a new project in a few days.

Happy crafting,

Donna

Fairy Garden Jowilna Nolte Layouts Misty Mountains Tutorial Tuesday Tutorials

Tuesday Tutorial by Jowilna Nolte

March 27, 2018

I love creating layouts using more than 1 range of papers. Finding ways of incorporating different papers and elements together is so much fun.
Today I am showing you how I used the 2 ranges from this month together to create a double page layout. And I simply love it!

and


In my opinion it adds lots of interest. It can also help you use up all your stash that may be stumping your creativity a bit.
Use what you have and find ways to make it work together beautifully.

Adding Interest to your flowers

For my flower centers I used a custom mixture of different coloured micro-beads and glitter. I wanted to add some dimension to the flowers
and this was the perfect way to do it without too much bulk. The different colours also helped to pull together all the different colours in my layout.

step 1 – Cut out all the flowers for your layout using your Precision scissors from the Moonstone paper sheet.

step 2 – Add a small amount of dimensional glaze where you want to add the beads.

step 3 – Lightly sprinkle the micro-bead mixture over the glaze and leave to dry. Decant the excess beads back into the container.

Adding colour to the background

To pull everything together on my background I used different inks in green and purple, representing the two different ranges of papers.

step 1 – Add a few drops of ink onto a small plastic packet. Lightly mist the ink with water.

step 2 – Stamp the ink onto the patterned paper sheets you are using on your background.


step 3 – Leave the ink to dry completely and then cut your different papers into strips to use on your background.

The inked paper strips form my background and the inked pieces adds interest and ties everything together beautifully.

Cluster the flowers in the top left and right hand corners to frame your photos and paper strips in the middle.

A few dark purple elements like the stamped triangle and buttons pick up on the dark purple pieces throughout the layout.

Products used
Kaisercraft Products: Misty Mountain Collection: P2497 Marbled | P2500 Light Leaks | CS323 Clear Stamps |  PP1040 Paper Pad |
Fairy Garden Collection: P2495 Moonstone | T316 Precision scissors | T317 Craft scissors
Other: dimensional glaze | inks | sewing machine | micro-beads

I hope this inspires you to try using different collections together for something new. I love creating with different collections – using what I love from each one.
Until next time, Love Jowilna!
