“Mini-album featuring mini-envelope die” by Donna Espiritu

PAPERS: Scrap Studio Paper Collection – P2638 Tarnished, P2635 Gritty, P2632 Authentic

Kaisercraft PRODUCTS: CT948 Scrap Studio Collectables, SS374 Sticker Sheet, PP1055 Paper Pad, DD623 Mini-envelope Die,

Use an envelope as a template. Trace and cut. This will be the base of the mini-album. Once cut, score a 5cm gap from the original fold lines to make the base a bit thicker once folded. Refer to the image as a reference.

Use the 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 paper pad to cut 6 pieces of mini-envelopes.

Assemble the mini-album and embellish/decorate with fussy cut pieces, Collectables, and stickers.

Here are photos of the finished mini-album.

Little more Peachy Love

October 26, 2018

Peachy – Design Team Layouts
Here are a few extra layouts that our gorgeous design team girls have created using this month’s Peachy Collection.

On the following layout – Lisa Amiet uses the new ARC stencil on the background.  
Cutting the TAUPE page into squares and foam taping   
between elements to create a layered effect.


Below Alicia McNamara has spent a lot of time fussy cutting out the flowers
from the HONEY FLOWER paper and using these to frame a gorgeous photo.

Donna has used the other new stencil we released this month QUILTED template on her background.  

I love how delicate the design still is on the background after being transferred onto the background using modelling paste.

Donna has used metallic acrylic paints to colour some of the flowers from the Specialty Paper – Roses.

October 23, 2018

Watercolour Layout by Rikki Graziani

Today we are sharing an awesome mixed media layout that Rikki has created for us using the
specialty gloss varnish page, where she has watercolored the roses from the design..

I was inspired by the roses and making them like a water colour painting in rich Autumn Tones” – RG


Use GINGER as the background page – Everyone love a good woodgrain page as a background as this one is no exception.

P2625a – Ginger


Fussy cut all the ROSES from Gloss Varnish Page.

PS542 Roses – Gloss


Over the background piece of paper use the mini template with texture paste allow to dry. 

With the fussy cut roses from the ROSES GLOSS make a rough circle starting from the top of the page,
use foam mount to raise some of the roses up for dimensions. 

Mist flowers with water and drop the liquid water colour over your roses and background.

Add your 6×4 photo to the center of the rose circle. 

Add a tag from Collectables on the bottom left hand side of the photo, with also circles and leaves. 

Add a title to the right-hand side of the photo with a butterfly from the Collectables

Be You Layout Tutorial by Mabel Sim

July 24, 2018

Hi Friends!

It’s Mabel here today and I am sharing with you my final layout I designed for Kaisercraft using the gorgeous Gypsy Rose collection.

The past 1 year had been hectic but oh-so-fruitful. I managed to snap up a job after my graduation and to design for Kaisercraft all at the same period of time! I must thank Kaisercraft for giving me this once in a lifetime opportunity and I am sad to bid goodbye.

Sad words aside, I am pretty sure you had seen other designers scrapping with this gorgeous collection. I am in love with the colour scheme and this is a perfect example of girly rustic theme.

I first started out with P2574 Quirky and reverse side of P2568 Inspiring. I thought that the contrast brought out was pretty.

After which, I layered reverse side of P2573 Thatching. The purpose is to create intersect lines so as to capture viewers’ attention.

To create more effects, I had used IP725 Petal Pink inkpad as my stamping ink on my layout base as Inspiring is dark coloured. I will need to select light pastel base ink in order for my stamping to show.

As I don’t require precise stamping, I would tend to prefer inking my stamp directly instead of pulling them from their plastic sheet. It does save me the convenience of looking for my acrylic stamping pad.

After I am satisfied with the result, I went ahead to cut my photo mat to a size slightly bigger than my photo. I had used the reverse side of Quirky.

To add some special texture to my layout, I decided to layer cheesecloth under my photo mat.

The trick to using cheesecloth would be to cut them into your desired size, and gently pull them apart so as to create a more natural effect.

Generally, the structure of my layout is completed! After adhering embellishments, my layout would be officially completed.

Ta-da! Here are some close up shots.

Kaisercraft Products: Gypsy Rose – PP1048 Paper Pad | CT941 Collectables | SS367 Sticker Sheet | P2568 Inspiring | P2573 Thatching | P2574 Quirky | CS331 Clear Stamps | IP725 Ink Pad – Petal Pink | F635 Paper Blooms – Terracotta | F658 Mini Paper Blooms – Dusty Pink

Other: Cheese cloth | Glue | Scissors

That’s all for me.

Hope you had liked what I created for the past 1 year with Kaisercraft.
