Misty Mountains Renee Aslette

Loved & Beautiful – a layout by Renee Aslette

March 2, 2018

Hello Friends,

It’s Renee here, to share with you, a layout I created using the new release Misty Mountains Collection.

This collection features so many pretty elements.  The colours are gorgeous.

The photo on this layout is my niece Madelyn.  I always look for a photo that will be perfectly matched to the collection I am using at the time.

There are loads of details in this layout and many layers.

I started by using the P2501 Eclipse (Reverse) paper.

I then layered some Whipped Sparkle with the IT027 Mini Designer Template – Damask.

I used the template in 4 areas on my background.

I inked onto plastic packaging and stamped using the following Kaisercraft Ink Pads.  IP732 Orchid, IP725 Petal Pink and IP728 Saffron combined with water.  These inks are the perfect colours for this collection.  I then finished off with a strip from the Sticker Sheet.

Here are some close-ups of the finished layout:

Here you can see how layered the template is.  So much detail in the texture.

Loads of Kaisercraft flowers and layers in the clusters.

The Title “Loved & Beautiful” is from the CT933 Collectables.

Another cluster of flowers.

Beach Shack Templates

3 Tips for Using a Template and Video Tutorial

February 28, 2018

This month Kaisercraft has released a new Template IT460 – Ripples.  This is the perfect Template for your “beachy” or water inspired projects and co-ordinates perfectly with the new Beach Shack Collection.

IT460 – Ripples

3 Tips for Using Templates

Today the Design Team have collated 3 helpful Tips for using Templates in your crafting…

Tip #1 – Using Inks

‘Barefoot Welcome’ ~ by Renee Aslette

Firstly, using Inks through your template is a great way to create a small, controlled pattern.  In this layout, Renee has inked her Template to create a background for her clusters of embellishments.

KC PRODUCTS:  Beach Shack Collection: P2472 Foam (Reverse) | P2470 Board Walk (Reverse) | CT930 Collectables | SS356 Sticker Sheet | CD650 12 x 12 Smooth – White | CB153 Corrugated Cardboard Sheets | SB715 Pearls – Latte | IT460 6 x 6 Designer Template – Ripples | DD599 Decorative Die – Wooden Fence | LDB1059 Natural Twine | T315 Double Sided Tape | T302 Mounting Foam Dots | T321 Acid Free Craft Glue

OTHER: Tim Holtz Distress Oxide – Faded Jeans & Frayed Burlap

Tip #2 – Using Mists

Secondly, using Mists through your template can create a real “watery” effect.  Alicia has used the Template to decorate the background page in her layout and it looks similar to the ripples in the water at the pool or at the beach.  In comparison to using inks, you have less control over the end result when using Mists.

Other: Misting Spray | Cheesecloth

Tip #3 – Use Modeling Paste and Water Colours

Thirdly, Donna used modeling paste and watercolours to add interesting texture to her card and envelope. It’s a nice way to personalize any cards.

Miss Betty NEW Product Renee Aslette Scrapbooking layout

“These Are The Days” layout by Renee Aslette

February 2, 2018

Hello Lovelies,

It’s Renee here, to share with you a layout I created using the new Miss Betty Collection.

I have also used the Miss Betty Clear Stamps.  OMG!!  I am in love with these stitching stamps.

CS321 Miss Betty – Clear Stamp 

This is how the layout turned out.

I knew instantly that I wanted to use P2483 Needlework (Reverse) as my background paper.

It had pieces of torn paper featured on a cream background.

I also knew that I wanted to get stamping using the Miss Betty Collection Clear Stamp Set CS321.

This is the background I created with some of the patterned paper and the stamps.  I used the Ink Pads – Black and Petal Pink.

Here are some close-ups:

As you can see I used the Square Stitching stamp from the Miss Betty Clear Stamps and I only inked the areas that would surround the patterned paper.

There are loads of layers on this layout.  I have also used stickers from the Sticker Sheet, Collectables and Wooden Flourishes all from this amazing collection.

To balance the right hand corner of the layout, I added some layers and stamping.

Here you can see the corner stitching from the Clear Stamps has been used.  I followed through with the same thing in the bottom left hand corner.

I used the ticket from the Sticker Sheet for the title of my layout “These Are The Days”.

Documented Renee Aslette Tutorial Tuesday

Create a Vintage Layout using the Documented Collection

January 16, 2018

Hello There Crafters,

It’s Renee here, to share with you, a tutorial on how to create a Mixed Media Vintage Layout using the Documented Collection, including the Typography Template and Clear Stamps.

I start by using the Documented Collection P2462 Lockers (Reverse) as the background.

I want to create layers and texture.  So  next I am going to use Whipped Spackle and the IT030 Mini Designer Template – Typography along the right side of the page.

I allow this to dry naturally.

Using a dry brush, I add some White Gesso to the centre of the page and then also allow it to dry naturally.

To create the above affect, I use a combination of the IP719 Ink Pad – Black and a Tim Holtz Distress Ink Oxide – Vintage Photo.  Using a piece of empty packaging plastic, I add some of the ink and then stamp in the section I would like it to go, focusing more on the areas where the gesso is and around where the photo will be.

Here is a close-up:

Using CS785 Clear Stamp – Typewriter Font and an acrylic block, add some letters in random spots on the block to create an alphabet stamp.

I wanted add another pop of colour, so I use IP723 Ink Pad – Vintage and the Ruler from CS319 Clear Stamp – Documented.

Here is a short video to show you how I created the stamping technique.

This is what it looked like after I completed the stamping.

Here is a close-up:

From here it was a matter of finishing with various Patterned Paper, Collectables and Die Cuts from the Documented Collection.

The Title “Memories Together” came from SS355 Sticker Sheet – Document Collection.

Tearing sheets of Patterned Paper give this layout a vintage feel.

I love this collection and I know you will too.

I hope you were inspired and thank you for stopping by.
