Anthology Layouts Mabel Sim Mixed Media

The Best Moments Layout by Mabel Sim

June 4, 2018

Hi Everyone!

It’s Mabel here and I am popping by to share with you a layout I did using the new Kaisercraft collection, Anthology.

I would say Anthology is a collection suitable for masculine projects due to its rich and dark colours. This is a good collection to get if you are intending to craft something masculine.

Nonetheless, if you take a look at my layout, I would not call it masculine but it is definitely not feminine either. This collection gives a good balance between both and i love it!

Kaisercraft Products: Anthology Collection – P2541 Ephermera | P2544 Botanist | P2545 Apothecary | SS364 Sticker Sheet | CT938 Collectables | IT468 6×6″ Designer Template Grunge | T303 Foam Tape | T314 Double Sided Tape

Others: Cardboard | Brown Pigment Powder | Texture Paste | Palette Knife | Black String

That’s all for my posts today.

Beyond the Page Design Team Kaisercraft Rikki Graziani Stargazer Tuesday Tutorials

”Art Foam Flowers and Hoop” Video Tutorials, with Rikki Graziani

May 22, 2018

Good morning how are you all? Rikki here with two, yes I said two videos for you this Tuesday.

The first video is all about making flowers with the NEW Kaisercraft Art Foam !!! This product is amazing and lots of fun to play with!!!

The second video is showing you how to create a decorative hoop using the Art Foam Flowers you just created, I have also teamed this up with one of this months new collection – Stargazer.

 

Kaisercraft Products: Stargazer Collection: P2537 Orbit | P2540 Cosmic | CT937 Collectables |SF901 White Art Foam | SF916 Navy Art Foam | SB704 Dark Blue Rhinestones | IP726 Island Ink Pad 

Other: Tim Holtz Distress Crayon | Mylar Flakes | Embossing Powder | Embossing Ink

 

The first showing you how to use the new Kaisercraft Dies and our New Art Foam to make your own stunning flowers !!!!

 

 

 

The second video is how to make this beyond the page hoop with the new Kaisercraft Stargazer Collection…..

 

 

By making your embossing powder thick you can run it like paint also you can add things into it and they will stick……. Like these Mylar Flakes.

Its easy to hand colour and custom your flowers to what ever you need, you can use any medium: ink, watercolour crayons, mist. The possibilities are endless.

 

I just use a baby wipe to apply the colour…. Why? I love the softer effect it gives to you.

Dont forget to add other elements like pattern paper leaves into your flower clusters…..

 

 

 

Another way to customize your flowers is by adding things to the centers, also mix and match your dies to get different flowers.

 

 

I hope I have inspired you….

Till next time have a creative day.

Rikki xxxxx

Magical Day by Mabel Sim

May 1, 2018

Hi Everyone!

It’s Mabel here and I am popping by to share with you a quick 6.5 x 6.5 inches layout I made using the paper pad of the very same size inspired by Kaisercraft’s new collection Stargazer.

If you realised, I love to layer papers at different angles to create focal point as well as pattern attract the attention of viewers. Hence, I had picked 3 different papers from the same collection with same colour coordination but of different blue tones to create some contrast.

Did I actually mentioned before that pre-cut collectables are by absolute favourite and a must in my projects? The gorgeous pieces are so precise that it saves me so much time on fussy cutting.

I had also added bits and pieces of cheese cloth at random areas to add on some interest.

Handmade rolled up flowers will suit any occasion and any projects.

Stamping act as a filler for empty spaces such that your layout does not look ’empty’ as it had added details to your layout. Simple technique but yet so useful.

Kaisercraft Products: Stargazer Collection – PP1044 Paper Pad 6.5 x 6.5″| P2539 Astronomy | CT937 Collectables | CS327 Clear Stamps | IP719 InkPad Black | SB794 Pearl Snow | SB777 Rhinestones Black | F647 Iceberg Mini Paper Blooms | T303 Foam Tape | T314 Double Sided Tape

Others: Cardboard | Cheese cloth

Beck Beattie Beyond the Page Design Team Do not use this category Pen and Ink

Beck Beattie shows gifting is a special affair with Pen and Ink

April 21, 2018

Hey there Kaisercraft followers, Beck Beattie here to share with you a sweet project I created using the new ‘Pen and Ink’ collection.  Such a versatile collection that today I wanted to take the collection a little ‘off the page’ to a gift bag.

 

Kaisercraft Products: Pen and Ink Collections: P2507 Chandelier | P2509 Journalled | P2510 Wallpaper | SS360 Sticker Sheet | F666 Black Paper Blooms | F628 Honey Paper Blooms| LDB1056 Foam Tape| Others: gift bag, cream twine

Sometimes I like to pick up some plain kraft and white paper bags that I can then decorate to the perfect themed gift.  It is so lovely to know you are creating something special for someone as part of their gift making it all that more special.

Adding a pase paper as a start I then enjoyed layering the papers and stickers to create my cluster base.

The stickers and florals were perfect for adding some detail to the cluster and also the ‘theme’ of the gift bag.

Finishing off with some twine and florals made it just perfect.  I also added a little twine to the handle of the bag as I feel it finishes it off perfectly.  If you like you could even add an additional flower here.

I loved adding an additional birthday message to the back of the gift bag as well.

You can also finish off your gift bag by personalising the base with your name as creating it.

I hope you enjoyed my share today and that I might have inspired you to create one of your own!

Happy Crafting!

xxxBeck BT
