Diane - Just Landed

Hi there, Diane here again. A few months ago I learnt how to make a never ending card. There are many videos with instructions on You Tube if you want to make one. My kids are hooked and make then too. After making quite a few of these cards I decided to try make a large one as a mini travel album with the idea of making a few from my travels and then creating a suitcase at some stage to store them in.
 Once I had the base of the never ending card I matted each space with black card stock to strengthen the card and to make the photos/paper pop a little.
 The Just Landed paper collect was perfect for this project. I used a Gelato to colour the Kaisercraft Specialty Paper - Postmarks to match the blue cardstock.
I made little pockets on one page of the card to insert tags of which I journaled on. It was great to see that I could display a number of photos over 3 panels to show off the panorama of Hong Kong. 
 Even though there were little squares which where too small for the photos I could use them for embellishments and titles.
All I have to do now is to get motivated and make the rest of the cards and the suitcase to fit them all in. Hope you enjoyed this post. Happy scrapping, Diane

Christine - Barber Shoppe Cards

Hi there - Christine here with a couple of cards to show you using Kaisercraft's Barber Shoppe Collection...
This collection is great to make masculine cards for the men in your life with! The ones I always find the hardest to make! For this card I made it an easel card out of black cardstock and added a selection of papers from the paper pad and some of the Artfull Embellies - the bronze metal cogs.

This next card is a screen card- Tutorial here on Splitcoast Stampers. The screen base is made with kraft cardstock and the panels are various papers from the paper pad and outlined on black cardstock.
For the edging on top of the screen I used my Martha Stewart punch - layered arches. For the bottom of the screen I used my Spellbinders Label one die.

Each of the four panels was embellished using some of the Collectables and some metal clocks.
Using these collections makes it so easy for cards to come together, especially ones suitable for males!!


Happy Creating!

Diane - Bon Appetit

Hi everyone, It has been such a long time since I blogged. I had great intentions of coming back from a 2 week break after the school holidays and getting straight back into it. Hmmm that didn't quiet pan out as I had liked it too. Nevermind.

I want to share with you this little recipe book box from Kaisercraft 'Bon Appetit' I thought of her.
I made about a dozen card with places to write her favourite recipes on as you can see below. The papers and the die cuts had lots of utensils to use on these cards. I wish I could display all of them.
Using some of the Kaisercraft 'Story Book' paper I had left over from another project I made the spine of the box to try make it look like a book. It was more of a timber look but I think it worked out ok.
I hope you have found this little project useful. I enjoyed making it and cant wait to taste some of the goodies that Maddy makes.   Happy scrapping, Diane

Debi Ryan: Vintage Barber Shop

Hi everyone, today I'm back with a vintage inspired layout, using Kaisercraft Barber Shop; this collection is perfect for those masculine vintage projects. The colours work so well with sepia and black and white photos.

12 x 12 Vintage LO

All the bits and bobs from the collections always with Kaisercraft work seamlessly together, so I quickly had my Layout. I added some stencilling and sponging, as well as some splattered and we are all done.

Have a great week everyone.

Michelle - Kaisercraft Ooh La La

Ooh La La - definitely the right way of describing this gorgeous range! So pretty and feminine......

I have used a lovely peach cardstock for my base. I have then cut down the reverse side of the Belle Paper , inked and distressed the edges. I have matted the photo of my gorgeous niece on the reverse side of the Je T'Aime paper and the C'est La Vie paper. The brick wall on the left is cut from the specialty die cut windows paper, and the piece of paper on the right is from the Oui Oui paper.

I have added quite a number of lovely pieces from the Collectables  - the clock, the doilies, the butterfly and the frame feature to the right of the photo.  "You're so lovely" title in the frame is taken from the sticker sheet.

Have a super week!


Michelle - Kaisercraft Frosted

Hello there!

When I saw the Kaisercraft Frosted range - I loved it. I love the blue and grey hues .... and I think of Christmas and snow and and bling and sparkles .... so pretty!

I used a plain blue cardstock to start off with.  Cut a rectangular strip from the reverse side of the Icicles paper, distressing the edges and curling up the opposite corners - place this down first. The white cut out - is from a die I borrowed, which I covered in stickles, cut in half and lay this down to line up with the Icicles paper. Then cut about half of the reverse side of the Frozen paper (use the blue), again distressing the edges and layering this on top of the the other Icicle paper. I then cut two smaller pieces - one from the reverse side of the Frozen paper (white bit)  and the other from the cones from the Glacial paper - distressed the edges of these too. From the Icy paper, cut out the Grey frame in the top right hand corner, distress and turn it sideways as part of the matt for the photo. The "photo" - matted on the music part of the Icicle paper is taken from the Correspondence paper - so effective, everyone keeps asking me who is that in the photo!

One of the flourishes is from the Collectables and the other is cut from the Icicles paper. The balance of the words and embellishments are taken from the sticker sheet and the Collectables.

I finished off with a lightly rubbing some darker blue and grey chalk around the papers.

Thanks for popping over!

Vonni - Christmas Wishes

Did you know that there are only 80 days until Christmas?

Every year I swear I'm going to get in early, purchase a few gifts, make a few cards and I never seem to get there. Well, not in 2016!! I have just purchased and wrapped my first gift. Go me!!

Today, I am sharing a bottle tag that I've made using Christmas Wishes by Kaisercraft.

This is such a pretty Christmas collection. Pastel pinks, blues, purples and greens, with a bit of antique gold thrown in. Beautiful baubles, gold doilies and the sweetest little sentiments.

The bottle tag, which comes with it's own little pocket, was cut on my Silhouette Cameo with a file from the Silhouette Online store. I used the Christmas Wishes 6x6 Paper Pad and a few flowers from my stash.

Much nicer than a wine bag from the dollar store. Don't you think?

Thanks for stopping by. Happy crafting.
