Paper Play with Collette

July 8, 2015

Hi Kaisercrafters, Collette here today and I feel super privileged to have this time with you on the blog. I have spent some time thinking about what I can do to ‘inspire you’ to get the paper out and play!

We all know the benefits of paper play! As well as being great fun, it can be relaxing and I have been told by my papercrafting  friends that it is often prescribed  by doctors as a remedy for many ailments! Maybe that’s why I am blessed with good health…I am always playing with paper!

Today I have something for the lovely cardmakers and something for the lovely Scrappers.

For our cardmakers, I have made a video for this super cute card!

The foundation is really impressive and if you check back on yesterday’s blog with the amazing cards done by the Design Team using the ‘Botanica Collection’, you will see this same card foundation decorated with Botanica papers!

As a friend has recently had a new baby, I just had to do one in the new ‘Little One Collection’. Gee……the collection is just so darn cute! Owls, hot air balloons, elephants….you simply need to check it out!

The video is about 16 minutes long, so go put the kettle on, put your feet up, enjoy and then play!

Just what the doctor ordered lol!

Kaisercraft Products Used: ‘Little One’ Collection: Paper Pad PP974;

Collectables CT832. Kaisercard Island CD150.  Rhinestone Silver SB700.

Other Products Used: Organza Ribbon.

For the Scrappers, I have gone back to basics!

I have a shop in a tourist town, (Hervey Bay, Qld) and so many visitors say they would love to scrap but don’t know how to get started; there are no classes where they live. Others say that they have not scrapped for ages and find it a bit hard to get going.

I have made a video that runs through some of those basic guidelines and techniques that are so useful when we start out, and a reminder as we progress on our journey.

The video is a wee bit longer; I hope you find time to watch it and more importantly I do hope that you pick up a couple of tips that will inspire you to play!

    I’m so glad that before I left the blog I stopped to look at your 2nd video on basics – Thank you Again – I had forgotten some of these basics and some I had never heard before – and it was a great refresher for me and I learnt some new things too – thank you again for doing this video – very helpful and I love your template for the thirds idea in acetate – brilliant but simple idea.
