Fly high and free with Kirsten Hyde

July 24, 2015

Hello everyone. This is Kirsten Hyde here, posting my first my first post for the Kaisercraft blog. I wanted to show you some inspiration from the July collections from Kaisercraft.

I made a short video to show you the collections:

The little one collection

Little one

The Little One collection is filled with hot air balloons, clouds, elephants and owls. It is super cute for creating things for young kids. I got inspired by the hot air balloons on the paper and decided to create a baby mobile with hot air balloons

The Botanica Collection

Botanica collection

It is summer in Norway at the moment, and I had just planted a few plants in some flower pots, and left them out on the terrace. After a short time, my little Jack Russell came in to see me with lots of soil around her mouth, so she was busted. I had to take a photo, and this inspired me to create a a layout.

I sprayed the background with mist and added ink. Then I added all the elements.

The Fly Free collection

Fly Free

This collection is full of vibrant colours, butterflies and birds.

“You make life beautiful” card

I decided to create a vibrant feminine card. I wanted to keep the main colours to white and pink, and add some butterflies. I have also used dies to create white die cuts to add some contrast in the card.

Mixed Media Mini Album

I really enjoy mixed media, and I wanted to create something with some different colours and style with this collection. Therefore I created a small album.

I do collect all sorts of old bits of metal and lace, and find them again when I am doing mixed media. I add paint and mists, and then use them for mixed media items. The album locks with a knob on the front, and a some trim folding around the knob from the back of the album.
