We all love Kaisercraft Decorative Dies and with more dies being released each month it is difficult not to keep changing the name of your “favourite” die! Two of the latest dies released for this month are Texture dies. These dies make adding a little texture to your projects simple and effective.

The design team has a stunning showcase of projects for you today. It is amazing how versatile a simple die can be. These projects demonstrate how each crafter can use a die and create a totally different layout or card expressing their individual crafting style.

“Remember” Layout with Texture Die by Jowilna Nolte
For my layout, I used a piece of scrap cardstock that had some left-over ink marks on it to die-cut my bricks out of. The ink marks leave a beautiful and interesting effect.
To further add interest I scattered some of the inner brick portions around the layout.
The April collections and Texture Dies have been showcased beautifully today. Don’t forget we love to see your creative projects. Share with us on social media by tagging #kaisergallery and by uploading into Kaisercraft Corner, our own private Facebook group. We love to see your work.
It’s Donna here with you today sharing a scrapbooking layout tutorial using the Pen and Ink collection. I’ve debated between making a card and layout. Of course, the layout won!
So, let’s start with the short step-by-step tutorial:
I started with a white cardstock as the base. I will be trimming an inch off of this white cardstock later as you will see in the next steps. I mounted my photos with some foam tape for a bit of height.
2. To add texture and a bit of color, I used a mixture of black, brown and white metallic mists. I kept on adding white glimmer mist until it mixed beautifully with the brown and black mists. Using a heat tool, I dried the splatters before adding modeling paste with a spatula and stencil.
3. I placed a doily underneath the photo before adhering with glue.
4. I fussy cut a lot of images from one of the Pen & Ink specialty paper. I love how vibrant the black images are against the soft sepia tones of the papers in the collection.
5. As mentioned earlier, I trimmed an inch off the white cardstock. Then, I adhered it on the Lacey patterned paper.
6. I started embellishing after this with the Collectables and the rest of the fussy cut images from the specialty paper, Antiques.
7. For the final touch, I scattered black rhinestones following the diagonal flow of the page design.
Here are more detailed shots of the finished layout
I tucked in some wood flourishes and left them as is for a bit of color contrast.
I mounted some of the ephemera pieces with foam tape for dimension.
That’s all for now. I hope you liked my project! Do leave a comment if you have any questions regarding today’s project.
Thank you so much for dropping by and see you with a new project in a few days.
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.

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!
