Kavitha Layouts Tutorial Tuesday

Enjoy the little things – Layout + photo tutorial by Kavitha

October 24, 2017

Hello everyone!!

Kavitha here today sharing a layout using “Rose avenue” collection.This collection must be one of my all time favorites,if you are a shabby chic lover like me then this collection is a must have.

To begin with i cut out the circle shape from the die cut paper and distressed the edges using sand block.

Sponged some ink on the edges using “Orchid” ink pad

I glued the circle to the paper “Suite” and applied “Orchid” ink through “Tile pattern” template

Next i applied some  modelling paste through mini designer template “Blossom”

I used some floral borders from the sticker sheet,cut them into few pieces and arranged them around one half of the circle

Next step is to fussy cut some flowers from papers “Patio” and “Courtyard”

Now keeping the photo as focal point i arranged the florals in such a way everything lies on one half  of the circle to balance the layout.

Here is my completed layout,i also added some die cuts flowers and leaves from the collectables.To match the purple in the photo i added some flourish die cuts using the gorgeous glitter cardstock “Blossom”

I added some pearls and rhinestones randomly and finished off the layout with the title from the sticker sheet.

Some close ups…

Christmas Mini Album Tutorial Tuesday Videos

Christmas Envelope Mini Album Tutorial

October 17, 2017

Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a great week viewing the new collections from Kaisercraft. As you have seen, Kaisercraft have released some beautiful Christmas collections this year and the Mint Wishes Collection certainly doesn’t disappoint. Today I am sharing an envelope mini album that I created using this collection. This album is a gift for a dear friend of mine who is a proud ‘poppy.’ He enjoys sharing pictures of his grandson from his phone, so my gift to him is this album. As he is a non crafter, the album is straight forward therefore it is easy to construct.

I have two videos to share with you. One is a walk through of the completed album and the second is the tutorial. So grab a cuppa and enjoy!

 

The Video Walk Through

The next video is the tutorial. This is a lengthy video as it was filmed in real time. To assist you in your viewing, you can fast forward to the following sections:

33m matting the covers

39min hinges

51min pages and inserts

57min matting pages and inserts

1hr 1min attaching pages to album

1hr 3 min creating the pocket and belly band

 

 

<

 

The format of the album was deliberate. I didn’t want it to be too difficult for my friend, as some mini albums have a lot of interactions. However there are still lots of spaces for photos.

 

Mini books are great inserts into mini albums. You can journal and add small photos. The sentiments from the cut a part sheet are great for creating these.

The papers in the collection coordinate beautifully! You can mix and match so all of the components of your album effortlessly. By limiting the colour palet, it makes the designing the album less complicated and it makes the whole experience enjoyable.

I hope you’ll try and create an envelope mini album with one of the Kaisercraft Collections.

With one pack of envelopes, you can make two mini albums. These are great as gifts and also Christmas is coming!

Happy crafting!

Hugs from Cathy

Donna Espiritu Rose Avenue Scrapbooking layout Tuesday Tutorials Tutorial Tuesday Tutorials

Live with a full heart ~ Rose Avenue Layout Photo Tutorial by Donna Espiritu

October 10, 2017

 

Hello!  Donna here sharing a scrapbook layout I created using the Rose Avenue collection.

I think this is my favorite from the new collections so far. Primarily because of the florals and pastel colors! I love this combination and there’s a ton of patterns to fussy cut as well. Heaven!

I usually print 2 sizes of photos and since I didn’t want one to go to waste or left unused, I decided to place the photos side by side as I did here with my page. I used a doily to add visual interest.

I did a bit of mixed media to my background first and added some colors using metallique acrylic paints and ink pads.

I mixed different shades of pink and turquoise to achieve the background

I love how the strips of paper looked like after! I used foam tapes to lift the scalloped edges instead of leaving it flat. Then I went into town embellishing the whole page. I love this particular quote (which is in the product strip! So don’t throw those away, you can still use them like I did here!) and I think it matched the mood and angle of my daughter’s photo like she’s facing or looking towards something bright.

Rose Avenue is such a beautiful collection!

Here is a short tutorial I prepared for you.

Check out How to Create a Shabby Chic Rose Avenue Layout by Donna Espiritu on Snapguide.

That’s all from me today. I hope you liked my page!
Enjoy and Happy crafting,

~ Donna ~

Beck Beattie Christmas Christmas Edition Collections Design Team DIY Layouts Scrapbooking layout step by step Tuesday Tutorials Tutorial Tuesday Tutorials

Celebrating Christmas in July with Beck Beattie

September 5, 2017

Hi everyone, Beck Beattie here today with ‘Tutorial Tuesday’. I can’t wait to share with you a fun technique incorporated into my project today

I wanted to take you through how I created the beautiful but subtle Poinsetta and Holly background on my page today.

Step 1:  Stamp the images from the Christmas Edition stamp set featuring the Poinsetta and Holly leaves onto the backgound using a white ink pad.  I have stamped in the areas that would see the effect peeking out from behind the script pattern paper I chose to go over the top on my page.

Step 2:  Add clear or white Embossing Powder while the ink is still wet.

Step3:  Remove the excess embossing powder and using a heat gun, heat to melt the embossing powder.

Step 4:  Take a distress ink or oxides in a brown tone and gently add colour over the top of all the areas where the embossing is featured.  Work in a circular motion to softly build up the colour.

Step 5:  Using  a dry old towel rub over the embossed areas to remove the ink colour that will be resisted by the embossed images.  This adds a beautiful soft element to the page.

Step 6:  Add droplets of water to activate the ink and then blot off with some paper towel

To finish your layout, add a torn piece of the ‘Snowcapped’ paper as well as some of the collectibles and elements from the sticker sheet.  Enhance these with some florals and pearl strip as pictured as well as your journalling.

Here are some more pictures to help you get up close to all the details.

 

 

 

 

Here is the full scrapbook page for you to enjoy of a great family time we had when we recently visited Soverign Hill in Ballarat Victoria Australia.  It is a place set back in the gold mining times.  Each year they put on a wonderful Christmas in July celebration.  I just knew this collection would be perfect for my photos captured that day!

Sparkly Christmas card video tutorial by Tatiana Yemelyanenko

Hello!

Today I have a new video tutorial to share. I created card featuring new Kaisercraft collection ‘Christmas Jewel’.

Fir-tree was cut from 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 paper, then I added poinsettia cut from the other paper from 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 paper pad.

Glitter adhered on Kaisercraft glaze. For the final touches I used pearls and rhinestones and flicked randomly white mist.

Here is the process. Have fun!
