Preparing for Christmas in September with Kirsten Hyde

September 28, 2015

It’s already the end of September, and three months until Christmas. Three months is not a long time. It is time to think about creating advent calendars, Christmas cards and small Christmas gifts. I have created some Christmas inspiration in this post with an Advent/ Christmas calendar, Christmas card, a small gift (decorated box of Chocolates), and a layout (a framed layout would also make a great gift).

Silver Bells

Advent calendar:

As a Design Team member, I got the Advent Block calendar (SB2316). I decided to use the Silver Bells collection, to decorate the advent calendar. Silver Bells collection is a great vintage collection, perfect with the soft colours.

Silver Bells Christmas calendar 2

The numbers are Kaisercrafts chipboard Alphabet 3 (CD109). I have colourd the numbers with KaiserMist, Glitter or crackle paint.

Silver Bells Christmas calendar 3

I have used gesso on the flowers, to create a snow effect.

Silver Bells Christmas calendar 4

The lamp is a diecut made with one of Kaisercraft’s dies (Street Light DD513).

Silver Bells Christmas calendar 6

The gnome, is a photo of my frosty garden gnome.

Christmas card:

I wanted to create a simple Christmas card, using the Tag Pack for this collection.

Silver Bells Christmas card 2b

The motive is a Christmas tag. I have used one of Kaisercraft stencils and Gesso to create some snow effect on the background.

Home for Christmas

Decorating boxes of Chocolate, is something which is very popular in Norway. I decided to decorate an After Eight box. This is a super small neighbor gift for Christmas.

After Eight box

The measurements were taken from the After Eight box itself. I decided to create a separate box, which the After Eight box fits into. By doing this, the  box of Chocolate can be changes for a new one, when it has been eaten.

After Eight box Home for Christmas 2

I also created a small winter landscape on the top of the lid of the box.

After Eight box Home for Christmas 3

The trees has been made by using on of Kaisercraft’s new Christmas tree dies (CC Tree DD320), folding the trees along the “trunks” and gluing them together.

Kaisercraft Materials: Papers: Home for Christmas Sugar Plum P1936 |  Paper Pad PP980 |  Collectables CT838 |  Decorative Die CC Tree DD320.

Generations

Generations is a super collection for creating layouts and albums with family photos. The collection also has a lot of nice papers, suitable for other projects.

“Cherished” Layout

The Generations Paper Pad has a super set of papers in soft colours. I created a layout with a photo of my best friend and me. The photo was taken this summer, and it is showing the view out of the Oslo fjord in the background.

Generations layout Cherished 1

I used a blue wooden paper as a background for the layout. I created layers, using papers,  collectables, metal and flowers. I also used gesso and stencils to create background effects.

September creations by Julia Akinina

September 21, 2015

Hello! Julia is here to share my new projects using beautiful and gogreous paper from September Kaisercraft release.

First collection ia generation. I love the colors of the paper, this collection is prfect for the family vintage layouts. I created LO about me with three photos, I think my photos match good to the style of this paper . I also loved the sheet of paper with big red roses, you can cut all of them and have a lot of additional images to the collectables pack.

And here is my last project for today, it’s absolutely beautiful, because this is a star tree which I made from Kaiserkraft BTP – Star Tree. I used Home for Christmas collection, I loved to use it, I love the texture patterns on the paper and there are many beautiful collectables in the pack!I used a lot of them in this Christmas tree. I think I will use it to decorate the house for Christmas and to create the magical inspirational mood in my craft room.

Jingling all the way with Collette

September 18, 2015

Hi Kaisercrafters.

2009_1225Dec200801291

I cannot believe September is nearly gone already, can you?

I have been ‘Jingling all the way” this month creating Christmas projects with the newly released Christmas papers, they are just so adorable and I so love Christmas!

I wish I could stop singing Jingle Bells, and stop calling the lovely new collection “Silver Bells” – Jingle Bells! I had to re-do some of the videos I made for you a few times because I kept getting the name wrong. Annoying how some things just stick!

So here are a few of the projects I have been having fun with!

“Jingle Bells”

‘Baby Baubels’

Sometimes all you need for a layout are amazing papers and a great photo. This is such an easy and quick page to do, but I love it!

‘Star Card’

At Christmas it is great to spend time with our ‘little’ loved ones. This is a favourite of mine and I love to sit down and make lots of these star cards with lots of little helpers! Put a little bowl of candy canes and a drink with a pretty straw on the table, and you will create hours of memories!

I have made a video for you on how to do this.

‘Heirlooms’

This is a ‘left over’ card.  In my scrapbooking classes I encourage people to look at what is left after they have finished their page. In nearly every case, there is enough for a few cards. All the papers usually go together and there are always left over accessories! This is a leftover card which usually only takes about ten minutes to put together!

What a month of fun crafting, and singing! I am feeling very Christmassy!

Thanks for taking time out to look at my creations.

Kaisercraft Layouts NEW Product

Family and Festivity with Belinda Spencer

September 16, 2015

Hi Kaisercrafters!!

Belinda back today to share my projects using the stunning new September releases. What an absolute treat it was to be playing with these new collections. From the beautifully patterned papers to the collectables, decorative dies and templates, there is something to delight everyone.

I have so many projects to share with you so let’s go!

First up is the stunning Silver Bells Collection.

Silver Bells Header

I loved the silver accents and snowflake filled papers in this range and it just happens to be a fussy cutters dream! So many pretty details to fill your pages with.

‘Joy’ Layout

KC Sept - SB - Joy 1

For my first layout, I stuck to a monochromatic colour scheme using the oh so pretty pinks in the collection. I always feel the need to alter my backgrounds so I swiped some gesso over the gorgeous Geo Tile 12″ x 12″ Template using a palette knife. I just focused on the area where my photo and embellishments would be so that I didn’t obscure all of that pretty paper. My layouts would not feel complete without having some of the amazing Kaisermists sprayed over them and here I have used the pink one. I have also used the awesome clear stamps to add some extra snowflakes to my background with some Berry ink.

Here’s a closer look at the details.

KC Sept - SB - Joy 3

Kaisercraft Materials: P1928 Believe | P1934 Merry Christmas | P1933 Good Wishes | PP979 Paper Pad | CT837 Collectables | CS237 Clear Stamps | SS293 Sticker Sheet | CD101 Kaisercard Coconut | T625 12×12″ Template Geo Tile | SB729 Wood Flourishes Swirls | KM110 Kaisermist Pink | IP731 Ink Pad Berry | F627 Paper Blooms Coconut | F639 Paper Blooms Fuschia | F644 Mini Paper Blooms Coconut | F657 Mini Paper Blooms Fairy Floss | ST912 Epoxy Stickers Candy.

Other: gesso | wire thread.

‘Christmas Wishes’ Card

KC Sept - SB - Christmas Wishes Card 1

I loved the pink colour scheme so much that I had to create a card in the same monochromatic scheme. I added some detail to the background by stamping lots of pretty little snowflakes and heat embossing with white embossing powder. I added some crackle paint to a wood veneer frame and once dry, added some Pink Kaisermist over the top.

I die-cut some more snowflakes from Coconut Kaisercard using the gorgeous Snowflake Card Flip Decorative Die.

KC Sept - SB - Christmas Wishes Card 2

Kaisercraft Materials: PP979 Paper Pad | CS237 Clear Stamps | FL305 Wood Flourishes Frames | DD318 Card Creations Snowflake Card Flip | CD101 Kaisercard Coconut | KM110 Kaisermist Pink | IP731 Ink Pad Berry | DD701 Decorative Die 6×4″ & 3×4″ Rectangles.

Other: embossing ink | embossing powder | crackle paint.

‘Waiting’ Layout

KC Sept - SB - Waiting 1

I absolutely love the Wreath Specialty Paper in this collection with its gorgeous pops of colour and glitter against the grey so I used that as a starting point for my layout. I used a black and white photo to co-ordinate with the grey in the papers and embellishments. I took the photo of my daughter after we had put up our Christmas tree one year. She immediately placed herself under the tree to impatiently wait for Santa. :-)

KC Sept - SB - Waiting 3

Kaisercraft Materials: P1926 Good Tidings | P1928 Believe | P1934 Merry Christmas | PS427 Wreath Specialty Paper | PS428 Baubles Specialty Paper | SS293 Sticker Sheet | CT837 Collectables | PP979 Paper Pad | EM425 Tag Pack | DD705 Decorative Die Swirl Flourish | CD101 Kaisercard Coconut | CB108 Alpha Chipboard Alpha #2.

Other: gesso.

‘Season’s Greetings’ Card

KC Sept - SB - Season's Greetings Card 1

KC Sept - SB - Season's Greetings Card 2

This was my first time playing with a Card Creations Card Flip Die and I was pleasantly surprised at how very easy they are to use. I made sure for the snowflake die that I placed some Kaisercraft Die Release Paper between the die and the cardstock for ease of release and it worked a treat. Not only that but then I had some lovely printed paper snowflakes left over for another project. Winning!

Kaisercraft Materials: P1929 Wonderland | P1932 Joy | CT837 Collectables | CS237 Clear Stamps | DD318 Card Creations Snowflake Card Flip | T332 Die Release Paper | CD101 Kaisercard Coconut | RS402 Rhinestones Island Lagoon | IP727 Ink Pad Lagoon.

Other: embossing ink | embossing powder.

‘A Merry Little Christmas’ Card

KC Sept - SB - A Merry Little Christmas Card 1

KC Sept - SB - A Merry Little Christmas Card 2

This is a car that I created using just the Paper Pad and the Clear Stamps in the collection. I used the most gorgeous soft grey woodgrain paper from the Paper Pad and stamped and heat embossed lots of pretty snowflakes using both white and silver embossing powders. I created more texture by distressing the edges of the layered papers too.

Kaisercraft Materials: PP979 Paper Pad | CS237 Clear Stamps | CD101 Kaisercard Coconut.

Other: embossing ink | embossing powders.

Next up is the Home For Christmas Collection.

Home For Christmas Header

I am a huge fan of kraft cardstock so I was immediately drawn to the lovely kraft coloured patterned papers in this range as well as the hessian look ones. For my layout, I used the striking and bold ‘Sugar Plum’ patterned paper with some Turquoise Kaisermist added for even more striking colour.

‘Girl Germs’ Layout

KC Sept - HFC - Girl Germs Layout 1

KC Sept - HFC - Girl Germs Layout 2

The photo I used is one of my outtakes from a Christmas photo shoot with my kids. I asked them (alright I forced them) to get closer to each other for the photo. My daughter put her arm around my son and that was his reaction. Note to self: Never work with children or animals. Actually just children because I can bribe the dogs with food. LOL

I used some tags from the Tag Pack as embellishments on my layout and added cute little wooden pegs to the top. I layered some Collectables on top as well as stickers from the Sticker Sheet.

‘Joy’ Card

KC Sept - HFC - Joy Card 1

I created a simple layered look for this card making use of lots of Kaisercraft Foam Dots. I love how quick and easy the Foam Dots are to use. Just pop them out and stick them on. Easy!

I had so much fun creating that layered card I decided to make some matching tags using the Tag Pack.

‘Layered Tags’

KC Sept - HFC - Tag 2.1

KC Sept - HFC - Tag 2.3

KC Sept - HFC - Tag 3.1

KC Sept - HFC - Tag 3.2

These were the quickest tags to make by simply layering die cut papers from the Paper Pad as well as Collectables embellishments. I think they will look perfect at Christmas adorning a lovely kraft paper wrapped present.

And last but not least the Generations Collection.

Such lovely, soft colours in this vintage inspired range. And there is a soft blue woodgrain paper that is to die for! Needless to say that is the first paper I snaffled up to create my first layout.

‘Remember This Moment’ Layout

I have added some Turquoise Kaisermist to the woodgrain background paper on this layout. I have also added some stamping on top of that before layering on chopped up pieces of the correspondence style paper.

‘Love’ Layout

KC Sept - Gen - Love 3I so love looking back at photos of my kids when they were younger and used to like to give each other a hug! It’s pretty rare these days as per my ‘Girl Germs’ Layout way back up there at the top of my post. I just had to use this cute photo for the ‘Brother’ paper.
