In this month’s Mountain Air collection we have released a printed piece of acetate – PS536 OUTDOORS that you will soon see is very versatile.
Why use printed acetate in your scrapbooking?
The printed acetate gives you the ability to layer images over other images but still be able to see through to the pattern on the background. Another element – another dimension
PS536 Outdoors – Acetate Specialty
So whether you are going fishing or camping you can see how the main images of the wood stump or compass could be used as a feature on your layout and use the arrows and tyre treads, cut into strips for added interest.

Hello, lovelies! I hope you’re all having a great day! It’s Donna here with a scrapbook layout using one of the newest collections this month, Gypsy Rose.
Here is what I came up with
I started with a blank white cardstock, cutting an inch off of two sides.
Then I mixed brown and pink watercolors and splattered some on the cardstock. If you flick the brush a bit closer to the surface, it will create small splatters. So if you flick the brush farther, it will create bigger splatters.
I let the watercolor splatters stay for a while, letting it seep through the cardstock, before using a piece of plastic to spread and flatten the splatters. I also used a piece of tissue to get some of the water so the colors won’t be too bright. I just want a hint of watercolor on the background. After this has dried, I mounted the cardstock on a patterned paper.
I used this beautiful Decorative Die, Crochet Doilie, to cut a bronze glitter cardstock. I started off with this to decorate/embellish the layout.
Mounting it with a foam tape, I placed it like so and then added an array of embellishments below it to mimic a dream catcher.
I used both stickers and die cuts from the Collectables pack. Some were mounted using foam tapes for dimension and some were simply glued on top or under a piece of another embellishment.
It really is quite simple and easy!
Here are more close up shots of the finished layout
Do you like to create your own Bookmarks? They make a lovely gift to share with a friend and they are quick and fun to make. Plus they can be very useful and re-used over and over again by those who love to read. Today the Design Team were asked to create a bookmark using the beautiful Anthology Collection. This post includes eight beautiful bookmarks and three Video Tutorials to provide some inspiration especially for you….
”Today’s Story” Bookmark Tag by Rikki Graziani
Kaisercraft Products: Anthology Collection: P2542 Entomology | PP1045 Paper Pad | CT938 Collectables
The idea of a bookmark for me is that it is not too bulky – so although I need something pretty it has to be functional too.
I love how the design team can come up with the same basic idea, and yet totally different projects.
My bookmark is a plain triangle created out of patterned paper that slides over the corner of your book pages, as well as acts as
a great reminder to ‘always be grateful’.
Are you inspired to make your own bookmark? If so please share your creations with us by tagging #kaisergallery on Social Media, or by uploading your creation to Kaisercraft Corner, our own private Facebook Group. We love to see your work.
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.

Instructions to Create a Set of 10 Cards:
How to make a Set of 10 Cards using the Anthology Collection and a few Mixed Media techniques.
Prepare Base Cards by painting on some water colour stripes and then inking the edges with Bark Ink.
Use Templates and a Mixture of Inks (Gum leaf, Vine and Red Gum) to create another layer on the base of each card.
Choose 1 sheet from the 6 1/2 inch Paper Pad. Cut it in half at 3 1/4 inches. Cut each half into 1 1/4 inch strips. This will give you ten strips measuring 3 1/4 x 1 1/4 inches. Ink edges with Bark Ink.
Choose two papers from Paper Pad to use for the Texture Honeycomb Die. Cut five die cuts and then cut each one in half to make ten, one for each card.
Position die cut and paper strip onto each card. Staple to attach.
Choose some stamps and stamp onto card with Bark Ink.
Embellish each card with Collectables, Wooden Flourishes, Sentiments from Paper Pad and yellow sewing thread. Attach with a mixture of foam tape and liquid glue.
Spritz with brown misting spray.
Stamp bird on branch on the inside of each card with Bark Ink.
Stamp bird in glass jar stamp onto matching envelopes.
