‘Happy Days’~A layout featuring Wandering Ivy with Kylie.

December 6, 2017

Hello sweet friends! Kylie back today sharing a layout I have created featuring the new ‘Wandering Ivy’ collection.I really love all the floral and greenery inclusions to this range and had no trouble finding inspiration to create with it.

Here is a look at my completed layout.I really wanted to take on a Shabby Chic vibe with lots of layering and hints of the greenery showing through…..

For texture, I used my craft knife to cut some slits into my background paper.I then used my scissors to carefully distress the edges a little before adding another paper print behind each slit for contrast.I have folded the opening back a little as well and love the extra little splash of colour this added to my layout also.

Next I set about fussy cutting lots of flowers from the P2433 Blue Fields paper.I made sure to include lots of varying sizes.

I then stamped some vellum with the smaller flower from the clear stamps and embossed them with a mix of silver and white embossing powder.I fussy cut those  out as I wanted to add them with my other flowers to break the colour a little and to give extra texture and dimension.I loved how these turned out!

For balance I used the Provincial Flourish die as leaves…..(OMG this die is a new fave by the way!!) I cut them from the P2436 Archives paper.

I also added some vines cut from using the 3D flower die.They may be tiny but they really do add a great effect to your finished project.

Can I now take a moment to talk about the sticker sheet?? When I first saw it I just wanted to use it all!! From decorative lace strips to floral borders.Ugh! The choices! I trimmed down the large floral border and added it in under my image.I then also trim down the vines and added it over my image.

I finished off this cluster with a cute tag from the collectables.

These colours are just amazing!

I hope you have enjoyed reading about my layout today.Until next time,

Kylie.

Memory Keeping Questions

November 22, 2017

Are you a Memory Keeper?  Do you Scrapbook to record precious moments in life?  What do you use for inspiration for your work…a photograph, a memory, the pretty papers in a new collection?  Sometimes it can be helpful to begin with some Memory Keeping Questions to get the creative juices flowing.

Kylie, Social Media and Promotions Coordinator at Kaisercraft, set some Memory Keeping Questions for our Blog Post today…

Where were you 10 Years Ago?

A quote to live by?

What was the last thing you celebrated?

What is the most important thing in your life?

What is something you are proud of?

What are you thankful/grateful for?

The Design Team was asked to choose one question and use it as inspiration for their layouts….

Four Tips for Using Summer Splash Specialty Paper

November 15, 2017

Have you seen the super cute Summer Splash Specialty Paper?  It is so bubbly and just perfect for your beach-side projects!  How can it be incorporated into a layout, tag or card I hear you ask? Well today the Design Team are highlighting Four Tips you might like to consider when creating with this paper.  Let’s take a look at their inspiration.

******

Tip #1 – Use the Specialty Paper as a Die Cut Sheet on a Layout

“Wet and Wild” Summer Splash Specialty Paper Layout by Rikki Graziani

Rikki doesn’t own a cutting machine and this is why she loves the Summer Splash Specialty Paper.  With this Paper Rikki achieves the effect of a cutting machine with minimum effort.  The paper is cut for her and ready to go onto her gorgeous beach side Layout.

Tip #2 – Spray the Paper to use as Texture Embellishment on a Tag

Tip #5 – Fussy Cut your Stickers

“Your smile” Layout ~ by Jowilna Nolte

For me, stickers mean layering and trimming close around the edges to make them look less like stickers and more like fussy cut elements but with the ease.

Here I layered the tiny bird sticker from the sticker sheet on top of a cut out from the patterned paper.

The rose sticker is sandwiched between a cutout flower and cut out element from the patterned paper sheet and finish off with a
butterfly from the specialty sheet gold leafed on the back to create a stunning element.
