Finally,  we have Trudi’s card.

‘What a Star’ by Trudi Harrison

Kaisercraft Products: Attitude P891 What’s Up?, P890 Wicked, P887 Whatever, P873 Paper Pad. CT719 Collectables

Trudi Says:

“An easel type card was created from cardstock with some Attitude patterned paper attached over the top. The collectables make it easy to add a touch of flair to any card.  Here I have combined a few of these elements along with some hand cut patterned paper elements.  They have been arranged and layered to create the front decoration.  To add dimension,  some of the elements were attached with 3D foam tape.”

Card Making Kaisercraft

Miss Match Cards…

July 25, 2012

Hi there, Susan, Wendy and Trudi have some more creativity with the Miss Match collection to share with you.

First up we have Susan’s card duo…

“Treasure and Journey” cards by Susan Longman


Kaisercraft Materials Used: CT718 – Collectables Miss Match
Other: Cardstock ; Butterfly Die

Susan Says:

“The Collectables pack for Miss Match is amazing for making cards with. It has all the elements in every colour, enabling you to make a card set in differing shades.”

Next we have Wendy’s card…


“Butterfly Card” By Wendy Smith


Kaisercraft Materials Used: CT718 – Collectables Miss Match; FL432 Wooden flourishes; IP719 Black Ink
Other: Cardstock

Wendy Says:

“Layering a wooden doily under the die-cut butterflies adds another dimension to the card. This paper range is terrific for girly cards and layouts, but has the blues and greens so can be adapted for boy cards and layouts too.”

And finally, Trudi’s card…

‘Wish you were here’ by Trudi Harrison

Kaisercraft Products:
Miss Match – PP880 Clutter, P882 Trinkets,  PP872 Paper Pad, SS140 Sticker Sheet, CT718  Collectables
Other: Cardstock, String

Trudi Says:
“The postcard with the polaroid from the ‘Clutter’ patterned paper was the initial inspiration for this card.  As soon as I saw it, the first thing that came to mind was “Wish you were here”.  It set the scene perfectly for my card.”

Kaisercraft Layouts

Miss Match Layouts…

July 23, 2012

This afternoon we have some more layouts for you, but this time in the Miss Match collection!
First we have  Susan’s gorgeous layout…

“Enjoy” Layout by Susan Longman


Kaisercraft Materials Used:

Cardstock; Butterfly Die; Doily Die



Susan Says:

“I love this range as there are loads of quotes that can be easy included onto your layout. In this page I have used one of the quotes as a title. The papers in the Miss Match range coordinate beautifully with the Ruby Blooms and have a gorgeous burnt red look to them. Although the papers include multiple colours, it is quite easy to pull a few sheets and create a fairly monochromatic page.”

 Next we have Wendy’s fabulous layout…

“ENJOY” Layout by Wendy Smith

F629 – Buttercup Bloom;F648- Mini Paper Blooms; CT718 – Collectables Miss Match; P878 – Junk; P879 – Bric-a-Brac; P874 – Trash; P882 – Trinkets;  SS140 Sticker Sheet Miss Match; EB972- Blossoms; RS418 Sparklets; IP719 Black ink

Doily Punch and Branch Punch


Wendy Says:

“The beautiful coral pinks in this range work fabulously with the aquas found in the other Kaisercraft products. The aqua Sparklets really bring out the feel of water from the picture into the layout.”

And finally Trudi’s lovely layout…

Kaisercraft Products:
Miss Match P874 Trash, P876 Odds, P878 Junk, P880 Clutter, P881 Knick Knacks, P882 Trinkets, CT718 Collectables, EM982 Polaroids; RB117 Always Rub on Word

Trudi Says:

“This collection is so pretty.  I have concentrated more on the green and salmon pink of the collection for this creation. A splash of blue was introduced with the collectable elements.  Some fussy cut elements from the ‘Trash’ paper were layered to add a touch of floral prettiness to the layout.”

Kaisercraft Layouts

Attitude! Layouts…

July 23, 2012

Hello!! It’s Susan, Trudi and Wendy here and today we are kicking off  with some ‘Attitude!’ We have got some layouts created in the Attitude! Collection that we know you will love.

First up we have Wendy’s awesome layout  ‘Chillin’.

“Chillin’’ by Wendy Smith


Check out how Wendy has altered the Dude patterned paper which she has used as the background.  The Bubble Wrap Clear Stamp has been randomly stamped over the paper before adding other elements.

Wendy has highlighted her beautiful photo with coordinating papers and elements from the Attitude collection with paper blooms and mini roses – who says that you can’t put flowers on a boys page!


Kaisercraft Products used:
P886 Dude; P981 What’s Up?; P885 Rebel; P884 Individual; P888 Trouble; RB968 Rub Ons; CT719 Collectables; CS753 Bubble-Wrap clear stamp; FL413 Wooden flourish skateboard; F645 Mini Paper Blooms; IP723 Vintage Ink;

Other:Branch punch, hemp Twine

Next we have Susan’s terrific layout ‘Individual’.

“Individual” by Susan Longman 


Kaisercraft Products used:
P886 Dude; P983 Teenager; P884 Individual; P887 Whatever; CT719 Collectables – Attitude; F661 – Mini Paper Blooms; F624 – Midnight; RS409 – Sparklets – Ebony; PS416 – Sparklets – Rouge

Other: Doily Die; Butterfly Dies; Flourish Die; Flower Dies



Susan says:

“You could not get a more boy range than Attitude really, but I thought it would look amazing as a girly layout of my very individual tomboy daughter… so don’t bypass this range if you only have girls I think you will love versatility on the papers.”

Our last instalment is by Trudi with her layout ‘Little Miss Attitude’.

 Trudi also shows the versatility of this collection by also scrapping a photo of her daughter.

‘Little Miss Attitude’ by Trudi Harrison

Kaisercraft Products:

Attitude! – P884 Individual, P886 Dude, P890 Wicked; SS141 Sticker Sheet, PP873 Paper Pad, CT719 Collectables; FL432 Flourish Pack/Floral; FL432 Flourish Pack/Large Flower; RS409 Sparklets Ebony; RB909 Rubons/Laugh


Glimmer Mist, Colour Spray, Masking Template, Flower Punches

Trudi Says:

“Although this collection is quite masculine, I love the grunge factor of it and found it more than suitable for scrapping this photo of my ‘Miss E’.  Here she is pulling her ‘tough, don’t mess with me’  look – we are getting this look quite a bit at the moment, so it must be a stage that she is going through.  The pink in the photo worked well as a contrast against the dark toning of the range.  Some subtle misting was added to the background and a ‘grungy’ flower made by punching out some floral shapes and layering them up.”

“Sometimes a sketch can be changed by shrinking the dimensions of the papers, photos and embellishments used… this creates a whole new look to the layout.”

‘Everything Beautiful’ Layout by Trudi Harrison

Miss Match – PS214 Rummage Specialty – Die cut, P878 Junk, P881 Knick Knacks, P882 Trinkets, SS140 Sticker Sheet, PP872 Paper Pad, CT718 Collectables.

Trudi Says:

“The sketch is quite linear in it’s design.  A softer appeal was achieved by incorporating circular elements instead of  the square and rectangular design features of the sketch.  Some pretty flowers were also incorporated to add a touch of feminity.”
