Kaisercraft Indigo Skies Beyond the Page and Video

April 21, 2017

Hello Kaisercraft Friends,

I know you are all loving the new Kaisercraft Indigo Skies Collection, it is such a versatile collection that can be used to scrap the boys or the girls.  Today I am sharing a Photo Frame with photos of my nieces and nephew from a photo shoot they had taken a few years ago now.  This is a present for my sister for her birthday.  Because she has three children these photos were a perfect fit for the Three Panel Frame.

I started with a Beyond The Page 3 Piece Panel Frame by Kaisercraft and the beautiful Indigo Skies Collection.

I filmed a Process Video of how I made this frame.

I used one of Kaisercraft’s new 6×6 Templates – Abstract Triangles to add some texture to the frame.

I also added some background stamping with my all time favourite stamp CS257 Background Script.

You can see in the video how I just ink up little bits of this stamp for the effect of a few words stamped here and there on the frame.

I tied the frame together with some Kaisercraft blue Organza Ribbon.

I fussy-cut some of the beautiful butterflies to decorate the frame.  I love butterflies as an embellishment.  I popped a little Kaisercraft Decorative Die vine (DD516) underneath the butterflies to fill in the gaps.

I added a little bit of navy sewing thread and a couple Kaisercraft white Mini Paper Blooms.

Flowers that Last by Collette Mitrega

April 12, 2017

Hi papercrafters.

There is nothing like a bouquet of flowers to brighten ones day.

I am delighted to show you how I created a beautiful boxed bouquet that will last and last.

It is fun to make and so special to give.

The video will take you through the process, step by step, and has lots of tips and tricks along the way.

I really hope you enjoy it and have time to make one yourself and gift it to someone who needs a bit of sunshine!

I am using the beautiful ‘High Tea Collection’ released this month.

The beautifully illustrated roses look stunning set against the soft whitewash colour palette and are perfect for my ‘Bouquet’. The sentiments are based around friendship which is exactly what I needed to make this special gift for a friend needing some sunshine and beauty in a time of great sadness.

Mixed media bird house, with Kirsten Hyde

April 10, 2017

We have spring here in Norway at the moment, and this time I wanted to create a spring project with the High Tea collection. This is an altered wooden house and a candle stick, I had stored for some time. I have used the blue and white papers from the collection, together with collectables and wooden embellishments.

The bird house, has been covered with paper, and then decorated.

I used a stencil with gesso, to create some texture on the roof. Then I added strips of paper and collectables.

At the front of the house, I have added parts of a wooden embellishment, and layered it with a lace circle from the collectables. The candle stick has got a slight colour wash with light blue chalk paint.

Part of the paper has a “ripped wallpaper effect”. I enhanced this effect, with pieces of torn paper.

‘Attention Seeker’ Mini Printer’s Tray by Sonia Thomason

Not only are the Wood Flourishes you get in the packs gorgeous but the wooden box they come in is just as fabulous! I’ve spray painted two of the boxes in black and then joined them together to create a fun Mini Printer’s Tray!

Kaisercraft products used: P2262 ‘Puppy’ | P2264 ‘Woof’ | P2267 ‘Pawsome’ |  SS334 Pawfect Sticker Sheet Dog | CT876 Pawfect Collectables Dog | FL596 Pets Flourish Pack

Other: Black Spray Paint

The Wood Flourishes mix and match so easily with the paper collections and add fabulous dimension to the tray:

I’ve chosen to leave the wood flourishes raw as it works so well with the Pawfect Paper Collection colour palette. I removed some of the middle dividers of  one of the boxes to make a larger area that would fit the quote. Just trim the pieces out carefully with your craft knife and then sand the rough edges before painting:

Gift box Video Tutorial by Julia Akinina

February 21, 2017

Hello! Today Julia is here with the gift box step-by-step video tutorial using the Island Escape Collection.

Kaisercraft products: P2242 Island Escape – Aloha| PP1014 Island Escape – Paper Pad | CT874 Island Escape  – Collectables | FL594 Life’s a Beach Flourish pack | SB713 Pearl Pearls | ST922 Happy Birthday 

And here is the video-tutorial! I hope you will enjoy it!

My measurements for this box  are in centimeters. You can create the box with your own measurements, just look how I do it in the video: the first dedail is larger than the banknote, and for the second detail I added 0,5 centimeters to the width, and 2 x 0,5cm = 1 centimeter to the length. Don’t forget to add 1-2 millimeters to the middle detail! You need to do it for good closing and opening of the box.

And here is the result. I love this box!

I hope my tutorial will help you to create beautiful gift boxes of the different sizes!

Thank you

Julia
