The Flourish Pack had the most delightful shapes for you to use on your projects and they colour beautifully with the ink pads:

Each Tag was cut using the Nesting Tags Die set (DD518):

Challenges Saturday Sketches

Saturday Sketch Challenge – April sketch #3

April 17, 2010

“Vroom”- Renee Ludlow: Dancing Jewel papers, pearls (black), ink (brown), alpha stickers (Dear Santa).“Sweet” – Nikki Antonello: La Di Da paper collection, die cut elements, alpha stickers.

Here’s a couple of insights from Nikki (first layout designer):

“The beauty of using a sketch is that you don’t have to use all of the elements as they are originally represented.  On the original sketch there is the circle pattern on the background.  I chose to substitute that for some hand stitching.  The design elements still remain the same, but the stitching achieved a softer look for my brightly coloured layout and still defined the area within the circle”.

Don’t forget to share your creations into our April sketch gallery – you can win a $25 collection pack!

At the end of April (30th April AEST) we will be selecting a winner from the April sketch gallery to win a $25 collection pack of their choice (6 patterned papers, die cut elements, alpha stickers and rub-on pack)!

Here’s this weeks FREE template sketch challenge from Donna:

(Click on the image to download the FREE template)

Donna said,

“I always have a bit of difficulty with boy layouts but combining papers and elements from Friday Night Jive and Grunge digital kits helped me create this layout of my nephew. I added colored strokes to the star embellishments to make them stand a bit more”.

Materials: Friday NightJive and Grunge

And here’s Sandra’s take on Donna’s template using the FREE La Di Da printable!

Layout by Carole: Candy Shop collection

Layout by Leah F: Little Man basic digital kit

Layout by Katharyn: Bloom collection

Show us how you’ve used Donna’s digital template for your chance to win two digi mega kits of your choice, valued at $19.98. Before the end of the month, upload your creation here to be in the draw!

Remember – your entries have to include at least 70% Kaisercraft product and your entries into the Kaisercraft gallery must contain the sketch number.

At the end of April (30th April AEST) we will be selecting a winner from the April sketch gallery to win a $25 collection pack of their choice (6 patterned papers, die cut elements, alpha stickers and rub-on pack)!

Next up, a FREE template from Leah! Just click on the template/sketch below to download it, and you’re off and racing!

And here’s Leah’s layout using the Daydreams and Doodles kit:

And a layout from Sandra,

“I used the Camp Stoneybrook digital kit, I replaced the circle on the template by stamping with a brush and clipped a paper on it to color it”.

And here’s Chrissy’s layout:

“I mostly used the Loire Valley digi kit. For the background I used a paper from the kit, then added a photo on top and reduced the opacity. I made a duplicate layer of the photo and clipped it to a circle shape, keeping that photo layer at 100% opacity. I also clipped a paper to the title letters, then created a sticker look for them by adding an outline in black”.

And here’s Donna’s layout using the following:
Digital kits: Little Miss, Amour, Bloom, Daydreams & Doodles, Camp Stoneybrook, La-Di-Da printable alphas. Fonts – Century Gothic


“To achieve the background look, layer a pattern paper over a solid paper. Then erase most of the pattern paper with a soft brush and 25% opacity until you achieve your preferred look. Use the Marquee tool to cut off the edge of the alphas then place one over the other for an interesting design”.

Show us how you’ve used Leah’s digital template for your chance to win two digi mega kits of your choice, valued at $19.98. Before the end of the month, upload your creation here to be in the draw!

Challenges Saturday Sketches Tuesday Tips

Saturday Sketch (on Tuesday)

March 30, 2010

So anyone who knows me, knows I am notorious for doing things last minute. I was dubbed “Night Before Nancy” by one of my earliest scrapbook product manufacturers I worked for because of my insane ability to not only get projects done with only one day’s notice, but because I also wait til the night before something is due before I usually start it. I can crank out projects under the gun with the best of them, but because of this, and my thinking that a single day is plenty of time, I procrastinate terribly! So I was given the task of doing last Saturday’s sketch. Well, I waited til the last minute, and since things get published in Australia time, which is something like 16 hours ahead of me here in Idaho, USA, I did not get my page done and sent off in time. (Ali knows I am terrible with the time zone difference thing- my brain just does not get the concept).

So here is my saturday sketch. Or rather, LAST saturday’s sketch:

 “Friends” by Nancy Burke. Materials used: Peachy Keen collection papers- Neat (P491) (back), Nifty (P492) (back), Kosher (P493) (front and back);  embellishment pack (EM912); rub ons (RB852); ink (IP702); freebie page from Q3 Magazine. Other: corner rounder, embroidered lace trim. 

I cut the  “leaf sprig” and “friends” title from the freebie page and adhered them to my layout. I then cut pearl leaf sections from the pearl embellishment pack and added them to my leaves for extra dimension and texture.

Thanks for looking!
