Gatefold Photo Folio

May 24, 2018

Hello everyone! I hope that you have had a wonderful week. Today I am thrilled to be able to share a gatefold photo folio with you. Folios are a wonderful way to store lots of photos and they also make wonderful gifts for friends and family.

To decorate my folio, I kept my design simple, using a minimal background paper highlighted by the textures of the flowers from the sticker sheet. It also has a magnetic closure.

Inside the folio the three sections enable spaces for lots of photos!

 

The cutapart cards make perfect tags. The sentiments are heartfelt and varied in this collection.

 

Below is a video walkthrough as I go through and share all of the components of this gatefold photo folio.

Kaisercraft Art Foam Sheets

May 16, 2018

Have you seen Kaisercraft’s new Art Foam Sheets?  They come in 22 beautiful colours and are very delicate and soft.  At 0.8mm thick the Art Foam Sheets are easy to manipulate and perfect for flower making.  Today the Design Team have used the Kaisercraft Art Foam Sheets with a variety of new Kaisercraft dies that have just been released and are designed to be used especially with the Kaisercraft Art Foam.  The flowers were then incorporated into some gorgeous projects…

Art Foam Storage Tin by Jowilna Nolte

I am not one for making too many of my own flowers, but can I just mention how utterly addictive this product and process has been.
I am totally in love with the ease and beauty of it all – and may end up making way too many flowers for future projects.
I created some pretty flowers to spruce up a storage tin in a few easy steps.

Inspiration for Using Texture Decorative Dies

April 25, 2018

We all love Kaisercraft Decorative Dies and with more dies being released each month it is difficult not to keep changing the name of your “favourite” die!  Two of the latest dies released for this month are Texture dies.  These dies make adding a little texture to your projects simple and effective.

DD479 Texture Ragged Decorative Die

DD480 Texture Brickwork Decorative Die

The design team has a stunning showcase of projects for you today.  It is amazing how versatile a simple die can be.  These projects demonstrate how each crafter can use a die and create a totally different layout or card expressing their individual crafting style.

“Remember” Layout with Texture Die by Jowilna Nolte

For my layout, I used a piece of scrap cardstock that had some left-over ink marks on it to die-cut my bricks out of. The ink marks leave a beautiful and interesting effect.
To further add interest I scattered some of the inner brick portions around the layout.
