Kaisercraft Christmas Scrapbooking

September 20, 2017

We all snap photos at Christmas…the kids opening their presents, the food we eat, our decorated trees, the people we spend our day with.  It’s lovely to look back on Christmas Scrapbooking from years gone by and cherish the memories.  After all, that’s one of the reasons why we scrapbook.  Today the Design Team are scrapbooking some of their Christmas Memories.  They are showcasing the two beautiful Christmas collections released this month “Christmas Edition” and “Letters to Santa”.

Let’s take a look at their lovely Layouts…

 It’s time to go searching through your phone, computer or box of photographs and dig out a few Christmas favourite snapshots that you would love to see scrapped and in your album.  Then get busy with this month’s two Christmas collections.  We love it when you share your beautiful creations with us.  So please feel free to do so, especially at Kaisercraft Corner.

 But before you go, tell us which collection is your favourite for this month…Christmas Edition or Santa’s Letters?

Happy Crafting : )

Alicia McNamara Card Making Christmas Tuesday Tutorials Videos

DIY Clean and Simple Christmas Cards

September 19, 2017

Hello Kaisercraft Friends,

Today I’m sharing a Tutorial on how to make your own DIY Clean and Simple Christmas Cards.  These cards are perfect for mass production.  They are quick to make, sparkly and can be made in any colour you choose!  I filmed a Video Tutorial on how I made these cards so you can see exactly how I put them together.

DIY Clean and Simple Christmas Cards

DIY Kaisercraft Christmas Card Tutorial by Alicia McNamara

Kaisercraft Products you will need:

Glitter Card Stock in three colours…

GC109 Emerald, GC107 Golden, GC120 Ruby

DD321 Decorative Die – Merry Christmas

IT021 Mini Designer Template – Flourish Tree

Kaiser Colour Paint in three colours…

KC050 Metallic Gold, KC028 Green, KC009 Red

CD511 Card Pack C6 – White

T321 Acid Free Craft Glue

(You will also need texture paste)

3 Easy Steps to Make the Cards

1. Mix Paint with Textured Paste and smooth over the top of the template and onto the card bases.

Hints: When mixing the paint and texture paste do not use too much paint.  You want it to be mostly texture paste with just enough paint to give you the colour you want.  If you make the mixture too runny it will seep under the template and ruin your image.  Also make sure you clean your template between colours and immediately after use. When you clean it do it very carefully with a baby wipe or paper towel and water.  Then pat it dry gently.  You don’t want to lift up the delicate swirls in the image which can be easily done if you are too rough with the template.

2. Die Cut the “Merry Christmas” sentiment out of Glitter Card Stock.

3. Adhere the sentiment with glue

I chose red, green and gold, but you don’t have to stop there.  Kaisercraft makes Glitter Card Stock in 20 colours!!  Imagine the possibilities!

They are also quite fun to make and you could easily make a bulk set of 20 cards or more.

Christmas Mini Album Beyond the Page Project ~ By Alicia McNamara

Kaisercraft Christmas Mini Album Beyond the Page by Alicia McNamara

I decided to make a Mini Album for my boys that shows a photo from every year of their Christmasses so far…So for Nicky (my oldest son), his first Christmas was 2012.

I found a photo from each year after that and popped it into this Mini Album.  He is already counting down to Christmas, so I think he will enjoy looking at this Album and seeing how he has grown each year.
