Memory Lane Inspiration with Kylie Kingham

May 8, 2018

With an inviting colour palette and lovely floral undertones, the new Memory Lane collection is a must.

I really wanted to take hold of the floral theme and create a layout which was soft and full of dimension.

I couldn’t resist incorporating the die cut page ‘Shutters’ into the background.I cut it down to size and found it gave a nice balance to the overall finish.

There are many lovely flowers included in the collectables. I decided I wanted a few more and fussy cut some from the Misty Rose paper.

I kept layering the flowers with foam tape to build a cluster supporting the shutter frame. I kept going until I was happy with the balance. The wooden flourishes also added a lovely detail to the clusters.

Using the Jade Jewel paper and Spring Breeze (reversed),  I cut lots of vines,leaves and flourishes. These are great space fillers and the darker tone of them made my layout really pop.

I have also filmed my process for you all to take a look at-

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my layout today. Don’t forget to join the Kaisercraft Corner Facebook group HERE. It”s a great place for sharing your work and gaining lots of inspiration too.

Kylie.

Tutorial Tuesday- “Love Blooms” layout with Kylie. Video included.

February 20, 2018

The lovely colour palette and paper prints of Miss Betty had me totally swooning this month. A truly lovely collection! Today I will share how I created my layout featuring lots of paper layers and some die cut flowers. I’ve prepared a process video for you all but before we begin though, let me show you my completed work-

There were so many pretty papers to choose from with the choice of floral,wood grain and fabric print just to name a few.It made my background paper choice hard to decide on!

To begin my layout I cut some length from my backing paper THREAD (reversed). This is probably the only element of my layout that I used precise measurements. I began by cutting 1″ (2.5cm) from top and bottom of my page.Keep both strips, and proceed to cut another 1cm (10mm) from both top and bottom again.Both these smaller strips can be discarded.

Next I cut two 2″ (5cm) strips from ‘SEWN’ .

From here it was a matter of reconstructing my backing paper. I had distressed some edges a little to give texture before doing so.

As you will see in my video I have incorporated three different papers through the middle of my layout. I did not use specific measurements for these and preferred to go by cutting by eye and what fitted best. Once I had backed my photo and laid everything in place I lightly marked everything with pencil so I could get it back in place after using some stamps in the background.This can be a really helpful tip for work where you include mixed media of some form.

Here is a look at my full process video.I hope you enjoy.

I was super happy with the layered element my paper flowers added to my layout, and the wooden flourish button were perfect as a cute centre. The extra leaves I punched also give a nice extra texture too.

A close up of the stamps I used in my background. I think these will become a favourite as I just love the design of them.

I hope you have enjoyed my project today and it inspires you in your own scrapbooking. Don’t forget to join the Kaisercraft Facebook group HERE to share your work and find lots more inspiration.

Until next time,

Kylie.

“Moment Captured” Scrapbook Layout by Donna Espiritu

January 23, 2018

Hello, everyone! It’s Donna here sharing a scrapbook layout I created using the Documented collection

I also incorporated a few Wooden Flourish pieces from different packs to embellish my scrapbooking project today

Provincial

Bouquet

Garden

Here is my finished layout

I splattered a water-diluted white acrylic paint, some brown mists and watercolor to create the background

I first splattered the white acrylic paint followed by the brown watercolor. I let it sit for a few minutes before splattering the brown mist. I repeated this several times until I achieved the look I wanted

I preferred to leave the wooden flourishes bare/as is. I just added some pearls in the center.

The title is several layers of file I cut using an electronic cutting machine. A fine-tipped glue applicator is great to help for easy application of adhesive to small/tiny or intricate details.

To finish off the look, I scattered a mix of rhinestones and pearls all over the layout

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you liked my project using the Documented collection.

Happy crafting, xoDonnaxo

Frosted Snowflake layout~ A tutorial with Kylie Kingham

September 6, 2016

Hello everyone, it’s Kylie with you all today with a tutorial of my ‘Frosted Snowflake’ layout. I’m using the new ‘Frosted’ Christmas collection which is absolutely beautiful.Lots of blue and silver hues! Thanks to the lovely paper prints and collectables in this range, I really wanted to create a special “Snowflake’ theme, with lots of texture and layers.Before I show you the process, here is a photo of the completed layout.IMG_8484_opt

I really love how it all came together, and found it quite hard to narrow down to what papers to use as they are all so beautiful!

IMG_8310_opt (1)

I selected P2168 Polar as my top paper and P2163 Chilly as my border piece.The first thing I always do is take a pencil and mark in whereabouts I will sit my photo.

IMG_8312_opt

Next, I remove 1cm (3/8″) off each side of my top sheet.I also remove an inner square from my border piece, leaving a little over an inch.(Don’t throw away the inner square, you can save it for something else!)

IMG_8322_opt

Next, I glued the border piece to plain cardstock CD101 Coconut.

You can set this aside to dry, whilst you work on your top layer piece.

Next, I painted the top sheet with clear Gesso and allowed it to dry.

IMG_8333_opt

I then proceeded to start adding some Kaisermist in Denim KM106. I diluted mine with a little water before spraying directly onto my page and then blending with some paper towel.This helps soften the effect.

(Kaisermists are some of my most favourite products.The possibilities with them are endless,so versatile!)

IMG_8344_opt

Once the Kaisermist had dried I then very sparingly, sponged some white Gesso over the top.This gave a marbled effect.

IMG_8355_opt

Next I set to work using the Designer Template Holly IT916. I chose the flower design as I thought it looked like little snowflakes.I just wanted them to look soft and randomly placed.I was mindful of where I had outlined my photo placement as well with this process and evenly applied some texture paste to the template.

IMG_8377_opt

Whilst the texture paste was still wet I went ahead and applied some silver glitter, embossing powder and heat.

IMG_8379_opt

I really loved the effect this gave!

IMG_8409_opt

Next I started tearing a piece from the corner behind where my photo will be positioned.I made it in the shape of a number seven, and proceeded to do some mountain folds and pinch them into place.So it looked like an accordian.

TIP: It’s easy to do this process if you very lightly mist the area with water first.

IMG_8429_opt

 I also made a small triangle tear on the bottom left hand side.I then distressed the edges a little of the entire page and added diluted Kaisermist Coffee KM113 with a sponge to the edges.Next I added some ink splots by gently tapping the applicator of Kaisermists White KM111,Denim KM106 and Winter Grey KM112.

IMG_8439_opt

IMG_8442_opt

Using the papers from the 6″ x 6″ paper pad PP1005 I created a backing piece for my photo as well as in behind the torn sections of my page.This adds a nice contrast.

Using pieces of Corrugated cardboard CB153 glued together, I added some packing for height to just one side of my photo.I didn’t need do the other side as the accordian fold on the top sheet will support it.

IMG_8443_opt

IMG_8446_opt

Now I begin the fun of layering mixed elements to my page.I have used the below listed products-

White lace EM926 | Snowflake flourish pack FL584 | Iceberg paper blooms F630 | Coconut paper blooms F627 | Iceberg mini blooms F647 | Coconut mini blooms F644 | Collectables CT864 | 

Other- Pearl string | Netting | Seed beads

IMG_8456_opt

The final step was to adhere the top page to its border.I also gently folded in small sections, here and there of the outside edge of my top sheet to give a more shabby chic appearance.

I hope you have enjoyed my project today and that it may inspire you to go create your own masterpiece!

Until next time,
