Debi- Ubud Dream pocket page

I don't know about you, but I have a mammoth pile of photos waiting to be scrapped into layouts. When my stash of photos gets like this; I tend to go to pocket scrapbooking - its quick and effective.

I love the Kaisercraft Ubud Collection, slightly ethnic and perfect blues for photos with Kiwi skies.

Have a great week

To Party or Not to Party? - Megan

Hi Everyone :)

In my Dt kit I received the new - or maybe not so new now! - Kaisercraft collection, Party Time.  After flicking through what there was I divided it into two sections, the pink and the aqua/blue, and for this post Im showing you what I created with the aqua/blue papers in this collection.

Ive used a simple recipe for all three layouts - paint splatters and stamping for my backgrounds and layered embellishments.  For this layout I dry brushed white gesso over the background and splattered paint around, before adding random stamping.

The chipboard stars I altered using white ink and while still wet randomly sprinkled embossing powder on.  A few enamel stars from my stash and some thread finished it off, and by popping the photo and the title up on chipboard it gave the whole layout dimension instead of leaving it all flat.

The second layout uses the same recipe, although this green base page is from Mister Fox ;) not Party Time but it tied in beautifully!  The speciality paper for this collection was a 12 x12 sheet of die cut circles - I didn't want all of them on my page so I trimmed around the ones I wanted, separating some of them from the main section.

Again as with the first layout I used paint splatters and random stamping, after first priming the paper with clear gesso.

This layout was pretty simple and believe it or not actually took the longest of the three of them!  The sprays I used are Lindys Stamp gang and theres a selection of these in the shop.

The final layout to show you today used what I had left over.  So the base is just plain white cardstock, more paint splatters and more random stamping.

I love this layout :) its my favourite of the three, possibly because of that cute little great nephew of mine :) :)  and its a very clean and simple page, not like me at all! ;)

So, Party Time?
You wouldn't have guessed it from these pages would you??  and thats one thing I love about scrapbooking, taking something and making it your own.

See you next time with the pink selection!

Christine - Cherry Tree Lane Cards

Hi Christine here today with some cards I have made using the Kaisercraft Cherry Tree Lane Perforated Letters...

The 3 cards show case the Kaisercraft Arched Window die - love it! I cut out some patterned paper to put behind each window and cut 2 lots of kraft for each window and layered them together, this raises them up a bit to give some dimension. Using my green tombow glue in one of the new fine tip bottles works so well in doing this!

The backgrounds have been dry embossed with a brick wall pattern and below a lattice design.
Each card has a floral grouping of a Cherry Tree Lane letter and my handmade foamiran flowers - these have been awesome to make and I just love the effect of them.


Happy Creating!

Michelle - Peek a Boo (Boy) - Exploding Box

Aw - isn't this just the cutest, cutest range .... Kaisercraft Peek A Boo  (even the name of the range is cute!) Sadly my children are all grown up and most of my baby photos are all scrapped - but I have managed to find a few to add to my exploding box and tell a little story of my gorgeous boy (who turns 24 in April)  ....

I used the papers - Kid, Precious, Cherub, and Bambino to decorate the box and each of the box's page. The Cherub paper is perfect for mini albums and pocket pages - as one can cut up the page for pockets and tags.

The bunny on the bottom left picture above was fussy cut from the Specialty Paper - Our baby boy (varnish) - it's quite an awesome paper this, as it quite thick like cardstock and allow you to complete details of your baby (the girl range has one too) - perfect for a 12 x 12 album.

I decorated the pages and the box using the collectables and stickers from the sticker sheet. 

Thanks for popping over to look - have a great week!

Vonni - Kaisercraft Peek A Boo Mini

Hi all. I hope that some of you are enjoying some sunshine. Here in Levin, we're still waiting for summer to make an appearance. The good thing about bad weather is time indoors to do a little crafting. I am attempting to finish a few projects that I started at the end of 2016.

Below is a sweet Baby Girl Mini that I started back in November. I used the Peek A Boo range by Kaisercraft. 

The tutorial I used to make this mini came from My Sister's Scrapper. To make the album itself, you only need 1 sheet of 12x12 cardstock. I used an extra sheet of cardstock for photo matting and the belly band. All patterned papers and die cuts came from the 6.5" Peek A Boo paper pad.

Well, I'm off to freshen up my cuppa and finish a few cards while the weather is terrible. Thanks for stopping by :)

Christine - High Tide Cards

Hi Christine here today with some cards I have made from the Kaisercraft High Tide Collection...

I have used papers from the Paper pad, some Collectables  and Artfull Metal Embellies to embellish. For this card I have used the Kaisercraft Scribble die with kraft card.

These two cards are the same design but I used different papers from the pad for the background.  The strips of paper left over I swapped and used on the other card. So it meant I didn't end up with leftover pieces of paper!


Happy Creating!

Michelle - Kaisercraft PS I Love you

It is a little into January now but wishing you all a Happy New Year for 2017!

Here is a layout using the lovely "PS I Love You" range from Kaisercraft - how beautiful. soft and romantic this stunning range? I love the soft pastels in pinks and greys - and the lovely butterflies.

I have used some of the papers from the 6 x 6 paper pad and cut to various sizes and distressed these, and others I have punched the edges. The papers have then been layered randomly. I have masked two butterflies with gesso using some pink ink to give it the pink tinge and I have used the same paste mixture on the chipboard flourish. The chipboard has also been covered in glossy accents. I also used the same paste mixture on the wooden hearts. The layout is finished off with some of the collectables available in this gorgeous range.

Thanks for popping over and wishing you all a wonderful week!
