December Magic Layout
Today we are sharing a gorgeous layout from our Design Team member Rikki Graziani
“When I look at a collection for the first time, I break it down in a couple of ways…. What can be fussy cut? What can be layered and how can I get it to interact with a photo once I chose one. So with that in mind I wanted to make a sort of branch with the geometric background and cut out different pieces. Then what’s a tree without some leaves? The poinsettias are always a great one to fussy cut and layer with foam tape; they can easily be cut in a number of ways and even with the spare petals they can be tucked in and around to bulk out the flower. Then things to hang off the branch….. The snowflake and rhinestone strips are perfect for that to help draw your eye down and around the layout. And the decorations being white and foil draw your eye to the photo”
Geometric patterns are all the rage. Team that with rose gold and this paper is so versatile.

Rikki has carefully cut away sections of this to make a feature for the top of her 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.

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.
