Beyond the Page with Check-In…

June 15, 2012

Hi Kaiser fans.  Lori, Michelle and Leanne here, wrapping up the week with some great Beyond the Page projects using Check-In.  So without further ado, let’s see what the design team ladies have to share with us today.  This will also be our final posts as DT members.  Thank you for a wonderful year.


“Check-In Wallet” by Lori Williams Leng 

Lori says: “It’s hard to believe this whole project is made out of paper, but it is…well not including the metal button brad.  Amazing what some kraft paper, distress ink, embossing powder and embossing plates can create.  I loved the way the Check-In line just merged with this project.  I used the strip from the end of the papers to wrap around and look like the binding ribbon.  It’s great being able to use every bit of paper.  I made the three tags to go on the inside of the wallet, ready to jot down those memories about a special trip, or even to add a photo to the back.”

Kaisercraft Products Used: PP870 Paper Pad, P864 Destination Strip, P856 Arrival, FL409 Mini Hinges, CS823 Clear Stamp Set, IP724 Bark Ink.

Other Products Used: Embossing Powder, Distress Ink, Brads, Sewing machine, Tags, Metal Brad, Twine

“Paris” by Leanne Love

Materials: Destination (P864), Sticker Sheet (SS138), Travel Tickets (EM979), Acetate Shapes (EM980), Collectables (CT716)

Other: Timeless – Botanical (P854), Wooden Flourishes – Eiffel Tower (FL356), ink

Leanne says:
“The photos from our daughters European holiday are going to be easy to scrap now that I have this range of papers to use.  This collection is jam packed full of awesome papers and embellishments.   Perfect for all those travel photos that you have sitting in the box under that bed.  This collection is not going to disappoint.. of that I can be absolutely sure!”

U.K. Memories – Camera Album by Michelle Frisby

Materials used : Check In P860 – Passport, P859 – Delayed, SB2166 Camera Album, CT716 Collectables, PP870 Paper Pad, M008 2.5 cm silver rings,  SS138 check in borders sticker sheet, mounting foam, IP719 black ink pad

Extras : modge podge, black paint, crackling agent, silver paint, twine, Kraft cardstock


Michelle says “As soon as I saw the camera album I knew that I was going to create an album for a friend who has recently honeymooned over in the U.K.  So that’s what I did.  I asked her to share some of her favourite shots.  I painted a base coat of black paint on the front cover of my camera album and once it was dry I used the crackle agent, left that to dry overnight and then painted another layer of black paint over the top.  For the pretend shutter and lens I painted using a silver paint dauber.  And then I started to play a little with a paintbrush and some modge podge and the papers from this collection.  I made a set of tags up using Kraft cardstock and twine and when I ‘gift’ this album to Nadine, I will leave it to her to journal on the back of the tags – special memories of her trip of a lifetime.  Creating made a whole lot easier using the ‘Check In’ collection from Kaisercraft.

Happy creating everyone.”

June 15, 2012

Hello all you crafters, Michelle, Leanne and Lori with you all today!

“Lakehouse Wall Plaque” by Lori Williams

Lori says” What a charming beyond the page this turned out to be.  I adore the color combo of Lakehouse andI also like the girly feel to the whole line.  Using the Lakehouse collection made this wall plaque wonderful for my dressing area.  I like looking at it in the morning as it makes me feel like I’m starting the day off fresh and beautiful just like the bird on this piece.”

Michelle Says:
“Here are some of the inside pages of the album …”

“You’ve seen earlier this week, my layout featuring Brenna in her ball gown.  She looked absolutely stunning and it was a natural progression to put together a mini album for Brenna with photos from her own school ball – something that I hope she treasures for years to come.  This release from Kaisercraft; The Lakehouse collection of papers and die cuts made this album relatively easy to put together. What made it a little more difficult; Brenna and Nathan are ball partners, not boyfriend and girlfriend! It would have been so much easier if they were … oh wow, did I just say that?  I really wanted to add to this album, but it wouldn’t have been appropriate, if that makes sense.  You will be seeing a few more photos coming up, as they are partners in crime again for ‘his’ school ball.

Happy creating everyone.”

Card Making Kaisercraft

Check-In Card with a Flair

June 13, 2012

Are you all ready for some card inspiration using the Check-In collection by Kaisercraft?  Well Lori, Leanne and Michelle are going to give you a great dose of inspiration using the vintage style travel line.

 “Wish You Were Here” Card by Lori Williams Leng 

Lori says:

“I love the vintage feel of this line.  It cries for distress ink and that’s always right up my alley.  To age my Collectables up a bit, I wet and crumbled up the passport collectable, then wrinkled it a bit and let dry.  The final touch was to ink it and then applied it to my card.  The flowers were handmade with Kraft paper and they blended in well.

I also wanted to share a tool I used on this card that I have threatened to throw away numerous times…but I didn’t from the pleas of my little boy……decorative edged scissors.  Do you remember when they were the rage in scrapping so many years ago?  Yes I still have a shoebox full of them.  I have no idea what made me think of them to use in this project but it gave me a great edge on the black cardstock.  Just goes to show everything has a time and place to be used. “

Kaisercraft Products Used: P857 Departure, PP870 Paper Pad, CT716 Collectables, EM918 Keys with Epoxy, EM979 Travel Tickets.

Other Products Used: Kraft Paper, Decorative Edge Scissors, Sewing Machine, Distress Ink


‘Travelling Anyone’ Card by Michelle Frisby

Michelle Says:
“Why not make another card at the same time … this time with a black cardstock for the base.”

Materials used : Check in PP870 6 ½” pad, CT716 collectables,  EM980 acetate shapes, CS829 clear stamp – vintage – journey, IP719 black ink, Coconut Kaiser card

Extras : Staz on ink, mounting foam, staples, black cardstock, twine, brad

“I’ve started with a base of Kaiser card and have had a blast layering papers, collectables and transparent acetate shapes. I gave a little height to my layering by using mounting foam between the layers, lots of double sided tape and I’ve added a couple of staples here and there for good measure.  I’ve distressed most of the paper layers and run my black ink pad around for a little more oomph.

Happy creating everyone.”

“Bon Voyage” Card by Leanne Love

Materials used : Tour (P863), Sticker Sheet (SS138)

Extras : Kraft Cardstock, ink

Card Making NEW Product

Cards using the new Lake House

June 13, 2012

Hello everyone,  Lori, Leanne and Michelle with you today, sharing our amazing creations using the Lakehouse collection.  You are going to love this range of papers.  They are so soft and feminine!

“Mum” by Leanne Love

Products Used

Kaisercraft The Lakehouse:  FRAME:  Spa (P866), Springs (P867), Getaway (P868), Serenity (P869), Collectables (CT717), Paper Pad (PP871), Sticker Sheet (SS 139).  Other: Frame, Paint, Inks.
CARD: Getaway (P868) other: Pink Cardstock

Leanne says:
“I had so much fun putting this frame and card together.  I cut out the card using my silhouette cameo and decided to make a frame to go with it.  The frame was just an old one I had lying around.  I coated it in areas with Gesso to give a little dimension then poured pink ink all over.  It ended up being extremely pink so I had to tone it down considerably with white paint.  It looks so beautiful sitting above my desk.   Isn’t this range soo pretty?!”



“Thank you Times Two” by Lori Williams  

Lori says ” I needed to create two thank you cards for my son’s teachers, as it was end of the school year.  I created these two lovely cards and then attached them to their goodie sacks.  I’ll be honest I actually cherished the cards I gave them more than the gifts.”

Kaisercraft Products Used: PP871 Lakehouse Paper Pad, RS453 Rhinestone Strip-Pink, F657 Fairy Floss Mini Blooms

Other Products Useds: Dies, Punches


Sympathy card by Michelle Frisby

View of opened/flattened card, when folded forms a ‘Z’ card:

Materials used : PP871 paper pad from The Lakehouse collection, CT717 collectables, F657 mini paper blooms – Fairy Floss and Fairy Floss paper blooms

Extras: muslin, tag, baubles, leaf punch, butterfly punch, seam binding, white paint, ink, foam adhesive


Michelle says:
“The Lakehouse collection has a gorgeous range of papers, add a few collectables, a few blooms, a little muslin and you have a very feminine card.  I’ve used a piece of the Coconut Kaisercard as my base and folded my card in three – like a ‘Z’ card and then I have layered my papers, die cuts and embellishments.  I have wet the edges of most of the papers and rolled/distressed them a little and I’ve run an ink down the edges.

This collection from Kaisercraft makes creating so quick and easy and everything just screams ‘shabby chic’!

Happy creating everyone.”

“Journey ” Layout by Lori Williams Leng

Lori says:
” Check-In is such a great line to use for trips and vacations, but it’s also great for the journey of life.  This is a layout I did using a picture of my father when he was a little boy.  He has been such a great leader of our family and has offered my family a journey of a lifetime.  Love the way everything on this layout came together. “

Michelle says:
“I’ve had a ball putting this layout together.  I’ve used photos of my son and Kaisercraft’s new release Check-In to put together a layout of Nathan’s travel ‘bucket list’ at 17.  I’ve embellished a shipping tag and I have hand-journalled on the back of it.  I wonder how long it takes before he ticks them all off – all three of them.  I wonder how long it is before he changes his mind?  Oh to be young again!

This layout was so easy to put together and you can’t go wrong with all the different embellishments that Kaisercraft released with this collection.

Happy creating everyone.”
