I have used papers from the Silent Night paper pad, the ornament has been diecut from a Spellbinders ornament die and I have diecut out the centre and added another Spellbinders- Medallion One- diecut behind.
For these last 2 cards I haven't used any patterned paper except for the bow. I have used silver paper and diecut and embossed white cardstock. The wreath diecut is from a Kaisercraft die and the bottom one uses a Sue Wilson die-The Australian Background.
This collection is so cute and sweet. I love to make albums as a gift for a new baby.
I have kept it quite simple as the papers are so beautiful, so have embellished with a few silver trinkets and made good use of the strip along the bottom of the 12x12 papers. I made my own tags to go in the pockets and used some washi tape to decorate them.
I have found this year to have gone incredibly fast - I cannot believe Christmas is just around the corner - in fact, I think I saw somewhere that we have 4 more Sundays to Christmas?? So why not get right into the Christmas spirit, using the gorgeous Kaisercraft Glisten range. Silver, gold .. all that glitters ... just love it!
The album was created using papers all from the 6x6 Glisten paper - these were used for background papers and creating pockets. Die cuts are from the Collectables range as well as from some of the pages in the 6x6 paper pad. Below are just a few photos of some of the pages in the mini album.
The flap in the picture in the left here was created using washi tape - I laid strips of washi tape across the piece of cardstock to create the back ground (great way to use up washi tape too). The star is a wooden embellishment which is painted with silver paint. The word love is just one of the lovely pieces from the Collectables of this range.
Why not pop over and have a look at the other lovely Kaisercraft Christmas ranges available at Artfull Crafts - Silent Night and Christmas Wishes. I will post something on the blog using these gorgeous ranges soon.
Enjoy the rest of the week - and the glorious sunny weather!
Betsy here this morning - yes, I am still part of Artfull Crafts design team! For how much longer I don't know, as I haven't been pulling my weight very well lately. Anyway, my conscience has got the better of me, so here we are.
Today I thought I would share a couple of cards made with the lovely "ooh la la" collection from Kaisercraft, which came out for October. It is stunning and the colour palette is my favourite.
This is a very popular shaped card just now - it is called a Twist and Pop Card and many tutorial can be found on the web. For this one I have added a belly band as it holds it together very nicely. The cabochon is beautiful and was one of my buys at SENZ.
This is the open version of the card and you can see, a lot of the collectables from the collection have been used. It is a fun card to make and of course "ooh la la" is just perfect for it.
Another simple card, made again with "ooh la la". The lovely lady is a chipboard image and to be honest, I can't remember where it was procured. One's memory is not as good as it used to be!!
That's it today, sorry for my tardiness but I will try and do better. By the way Artfull Crafts have this super collection in stock, I know you won't be disappointed.
Hello, hello! Long time, no posts from me- I have recently got a second job (besides working in the shop at Artfull Crafts) and time is always seeming to get away on me. However, I'm here now with some time to spare, so I thought I'd share a few layouts that I have made recently. (Because no matter what, I always make sure I find the time to play with crafting goodies. Priorities, y'know!)
First up, a couple of layouts using a Kaisercraft release from a few months back: Barber Shoppe. It's a lovely masculine-themed range in shades of blue, pale green and black & white, featuring great vintage imagery. I used a favourite picture of my husband (taken at Lake Tekapo) and put together this page.
It's pretty quick and easy- a piece of 12x12 kraft cardstock, which I misted with a light brown Lindy's Stamp Gang spray, before adding my photo on top. I then clustered a selection of the Collectables to the side, and added a couple of wooden embellishments amongst them (cogs and a clock.) To finish, some strips of washi, and a couple of flicks of black indian ink.
My second layout was a challenge to myself: to use the same range to make a more feminine-style layout.
I layered some of the papers on top of a sheet of 12x12 black cardstock, distressing the edges to add some dimension. I placed my photo on the right, and built up layers of texture using embellishments such as Collectables, paper flowers, metal charms, some hessian, buttons, and a few pieces of bling, sticking to the same tones as in the papers. Some torn washi tape and a spatter of white ink finishes it all off. :) Not overly girly, but a good showcase of just how versatile this range is, I think. You can find the Barber Shoppe goodies here.
And that's it! I'll be back again later with a couple more layouts using some of the many Christmas papers currently in the shop. Thanks for looking! :)
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.
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!!
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
