Christmas Lantern Card

Hello everyone! I have a Christmas card to share with will be here before you know it! Kaisercraft have released some stunning Christmas collections and I have enjoyed creating with them. Today my card features a lantern scene die which is being released.

To create the lantern, I die it onto manilla card and used distress paints to alter it. I then used clear vellum to create the windows and then adhered it to my mat. I die cut the candle onto gold foil paper and glued it onto the front.

Audrey Doll Tag

Hello everyone! Today I have a tag to share with you. I bought a few of the Julie Nutting doll stamps a while ago, and I haven't used them for ages. As I had some left over papers from some Meg's Garden projects, I thought it would be a great way to use both!

Firstly, I stamped the image twice and die cut them out using the coordinating dies. I stamped the dress onto left over Lavande paper and the face and legs section onto text paper. To colour the face and arms I used copic markers E000, E000, E11 and R20. To colour her hair I used E50, E55, E57 and E59.

To accent areas of her dress, I used copic markers BV000, BV11 and V17. I did some random stamping of butterflies and script over her dress to add some texture. I coloured her waist band in using some clear wink of stella. These flowers are from my stash, and they complement the doll and the papers.

I used the same skin tones to colour her legs. I used a black copic marker and the clear wink of stella to colour her shoes.

Some ribbon, seam binding and butterflies complete the tag.

Shabby Chic File Folder Mini Album

Hello everyone! Today I have a file folder album to share with you, using the journal papers from the Watercolour Garden Collection. These papers have various beautiful prints, which you will see during this blog post. When I first viewed these papers I was going to create a planner or pages for a planner.....but then I came across these beautiful file folders and loved the concept more. There are several tutorials on Youtube at the moment but the one I liked the most is found here.

I really wanted to showcase the papers in this album, so the pages are very simple. I utilised the ephemera to create journalling spots. Left over manilla card was used to create tags and flips in the album.

I used my We 'R Memories Keepers envelope punch board to create tabs in the album, to define each section of the album.

Extra pockets enable spaces for mini books, tags and other photos.

Adding lace, ribbon and washi tape adds to shabby chic/vintage feel.

Enjoy the video below of the walkthrough of the completed album.

Memory ~ Kaisercraft ~

Hello everyone! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Today I am going to share a layout that I have created using the Factory 42 Collection. This collection has so many wonderful elements to create with. I have used the papers to create a layout of my cousin’s twin boys. As you can see, the grungy feel of the papers works well with for boys of any age. As I look at different collections, I often hear myself saying ‘ooh I love this paper’ and end up with too many papers on my table and feeling overwhelmed with how to move forward in my design. Limit yourself to approximately 2-3 pages and you will be right to go!

Trim 1.3cm (1/2”) of IRONWORKS and then apply clear gesso. Ink and distress the edges. To save paper, cut the centre out of MACHINE, leaving a 5cm (2”) border around the edge. This paper can be used as mats and embellishments.

Mat your photo using left over MACHINE and dimensional foam tape. Distress and ink the edges for a grungy look. Use GEARS and COGS to create other mats and embellishments. Use a pencil to mark their placement on the background paper.

Use sprays to create extra interest to the background. Once dry, use an archival ink and stamp a texture stamp randomly around the page.

Use both the front and the reverse of the selected papers to complete the layout. Use parts and pieces of left over papers, dimensional foam to assist in the tucking in of embellishments. Even use flowers!

The title was created by die cutting one of the Decorative Dies word dies onto chipboard. It was altered simply by using one of Kaiser ink pads and inking the edges in a brown ink.
