Golden Grove, Happy Days and a Farewell

July 18, 2017

Hi everyone, it is sadly my final post as a member of the amazing team here at Kaisercraft. I have had the most amazing experience over the past two years and it wasn’t easy to make the choice to not reapply to be on the team. However with two girls growing up rapidly I need to spend a little less time in the craft room unfortunately. I know I will miss playing with the amazing collections each month however I have seen what is coming up over the next few months and combined with the fabulous new Design Team – you are all in for a wonderful creative time!

For my final post I was so happy to play with the gorgeously bright and beautiful Golden Grove Collection. I adore all of the yellow and gold hues that are teamed with earthy browns and greens. This inspired me to make a happy layout aptly titled ‘Happy Days’!!

‘Happy Days’

Kaisercraft products used: P2352 ‘Gold Dahlia’ | P2353 Greenery’ | P2354 ‘Collated’ | P2357 ‘Soft Moss’ | SS343 Golden Grove Sticker Sheet | CT886 Golden Grove Collectables | CD102 Licorice Weave Cardstock | FL605 Harvest Flourish Pack | KM111 White Kaiser Mist | KM113 Coffee Kaiser Mist | SB700 Silver Rhinestones | ST929 Inspirational Clear Sticker Sheet | T303 Foam Tape

Other: Paperclip

With the gorgeous floral images in this collection a little bit of fussy cutting was a must! I wanted to work with layers and have a multi photo layout as well. To start the layout, I took Soft Moss as my background paper and trimmed approximately 1cm off of each side. I attached this to the centre of the Collated paper. I then randomly flicked White Mist over the page and set it aside to dry:

Take 3 photos and trim them down so they fit comfortable across your page (my photos measured approximately 8.5 x 12cm). Matt your photos using black cardstock. Attach your photos across the middle of your page using foam tape – I placed mine on slight angles.

Using the Gold Dahlia paper, fussy cut an assortment of the floral images. Use Foam Tape to attach these images to the top right hand side of your photos and  to the bottom left hand side.  Take one of the clocks and the white floral image from the Collectables Pack and attach the clock using Foam Tape at the top of the photos and the white flower at the bottom of the photos:

From the Sticker Sheet, remove the lace border, trim it to fit your background paper and then attach it to the top of your page using Foam Tape. Trim the ‘Live, Love, Laugh’ strip from the Greenery paper and attach it using Foam Tape to the bottom of your background paper:

Take some of the leaf sprays and leaves from the Harvest Flourish pack and slip them amongst your fussy cut floral images. From the Collectables Pack take two yellow butterflies, two yellow and brown butterflies, a large leaf and the ‘Happy Days’circle and add them to your floral clusters. Take a quote from the Clear Stickers and add it below your photos. Randomly add a few Silver Rhinestones to add dimension and flow to your page. Finally carefully flick some Coffee Kaiser Mist on your page. Add a paper clip to the far right hand photo and you are finished!

Thank you to Kaisercraft and all of you for the past two fabulous years. I can’t wait to see what the incredibly talented new team have in store for us all!

Happy crafting

Beautiful Wildflower Gift Cards

March 10, 2017

Hi everyone, Sonia here with the gorgeous new Wildflower Collection for March. This collection is an amazing watercolour based colour palette in stunning tones of pinks and blues with the most gorgeous floral images.

One of the specialty papers is Gloss Sentiments paper (PS484) and sometimes it’s hard to know how to use these papers as they just look white until you start playing (the image below has the sentiments in black just for illustration purposes). The gloss acts as a resist and it really just up to your imagination as to what the finished project will look like – that’s what makes them so much fun!!

I just fell in love with this paper and decided to make some gift cards. I find these are always useful to have in my stash – they can be used just as they are or can be added to cardstock to make a quick card or even as cute name tags for the table at a party.

‘Wildflower Gift Cards’

Kaisercraft products used: P2268 ‘In Bloom’ | P2269 ‘Vines’ | P2272 ‘Flowering’ | P2276 ‘Wings’ | PS484 Sentiments Gloss | CT878 Wildflower Collectables | CD101 Coconut cardstock | LDB1059 Natural Twine | DD510 Nesting Frames Die | KM103 Yellow Kaiser Mist | KM105 Turquoise Kaiser Mist | KM110 Pink Kaiser Mist | KM111 White Kaiser Mist

How gorgeous are they? The sentiments are beautiful and the Kaiser Mists leave that little bit of sparkle on the surface that just adds to the fun! The next few images will show the finish on the cards and how they were achieved. Remember once you have sprayed the colour, give the gloss words a wipe with a baby wipe. As the gloss acts as a resist, the baby wipe will wipe away the colour that has gone on the words and leave it nice and white!

These two cards were made using a combination of Kaiser Mists in Turquoise and Yellow. Once the mists were dry, some Kaiser Mist in White was flicked over the cards. The first card was sprayed lightly with the two colours and then water was spritzed over the top to allow the colours to run and soften

This second card has a slightly different finished look – this one was achieved by spritzing water on the card first and then spraying the two mists over the surface

These next cards were using the Turquoise Mist just by itself so there is no blending of colours at all. Again the first card was sprayed with mist and then water sprayed on top to move the colour around the surface:

This card is the same colour with the water added to the surface of the card first before the Turquoise Mist was sprayed:

These two cards have been sprayed with the Pink Kaiser Mist – this is such a beautiful and soft colour! I haven’t flicked any White Mist over the surface after the Mists are dried as the ‘Throw Kindness around like confetti’ card already has some gorgeous dots on the paper in gloss that resisted the Mist.

This final card was sprayed with water before the Mist was applied. This just helps the Mist to run all over the surface of your project and by moving the card around it will then move the Mist smoothly around as well. Once it dries it leaves a wonderful array of light and dark spots

These were so fun to make so hopefully you can get a chance to pick up some of the Gloss specialty papers and have some messy fun with your Kaiser Mists and a water spray bottle!

Cherry Tree Lane Kaiser Mists Layouts Tuesday Tutorials

Dreams and Cherry Tree Lane

January 17, 2017

I absolutely adore the stunning new ‘Cherry Tree Lane’ collection with it’s vintage inspired papers and rich colour palette that is just timeless! While going through the papers I was drawn to the softness of the blue / grey  of the ‘Quill’ paper (P2227) and couldn’t wait to play with it and mix it in with the soft pink of the florals. The colours set off the black and white photos I used perfectly!

15302288_10154155599973583_1737107369_oI used ‘QUILL’ (P2227) as my background paper. Using a second piece of the paper I adhered strips of the reverse side and then covered with white Gesso:

Once the White Gesso was dry I covered the page with a layer of Clear Gesso. Once dry I lightly sprayed with Kaiser Mist in Winter Grey:

Next I cut out some of the gorgeous floral images from the TELEGRAPH paper (P2223). I adhered my two photos to my background paper using foam tape and then started embellishing with the cut out floral images, the Cherry Tree Lane Collectables, Paper Doilly and one of the postcards from the LETTERS Specialty Paper (PS476). These were all arranged to create flow diagonally across my page:

Finally I added in a few more embellishments to add dimension and texture across the page:

Kaisercraft products used: P2223 ‘Telegraph’ | P2227 ‘Quill’ | PS476 Letters | SS329 Cherry Tree Lane Sticker Sheet | CT872 Cherry Tree Lane Collectables | CD101 Coconut cardstock | FL592 Flourish Pack Hello | FL593 Flourish Pack Feathers | EM405 Paper Doilly | ST928 Clear Stickers Life | SB700 Silver Rhinestones | RS408 Crystal Sparklets | KM112 Kaiser Mist Winter Grey

Other: White and Clear Gesso

The Collectables that are part of each collection are a fabulous way of adding layers without adding too much bulk to your page:

The Flourish Packs have a wonderful range of shapes to use on your projects and can be used raw like I have on this page or can be altered using a variety of mediums such as ink, paint or sprays:

Thank you for joining me today and I hope you have as much fun playing with the amazing Cherry Tree Lane Collection as I have!

Happy crafting
