Crafting with Kaisercraft

Ever since I wandered into the Kaisercraft booth at CHA, I've been dying to play around with some of their products. And I finally got the chance this week. There's a lot to share, so I won't waste time with a bunch of chit-chat. Let's get to the photos!

Here's a wall collage I made for my grandmother for Mother's Day. (Since she doesn't own a computer, I'm pretty sure there's no chance she will see it here and ruin the surprise.) I used the Nan's Favorites 6x6 Paper Pad, which was perfect for giving a variety of patterns and textures, and the Nine Frame Photo Display.


I used a red chalk ink pad and some green acrylic paint to color these wooden cherry embellishments. Then I finished with some i-rock bling.


That's a vintage book page in the background that I topped with a handmade flower and some die-cut embellishments from the paper pad.


I had plenty of papers left over, so I created this card:


Next, I played with the Seaside collection. I altered a 6x6 canvas by spraying mists to create the sky and the sea. Then I used sandpaper (which I tore into "dunes") as the bottom border.


And yes, I made the umbrellas and the sun from the patterned papers. They were super easy, and I will post a tutorial for both next week.

While I was in the "beach" mood, I created this layout with lots of layers. Check out that canvas tag that I journaled on...it worked perfectly!


Now I know this is a beach line, but the little beach huts really reminded me of doghouses. And it's been a while since I did a dog layout. So...


I cut the heart outline with my Cricut, but it seemed a little plain, so I wrapped some baker's twine around it and, all of a sudden, it became a lot more fun!

But wait...there's more!

As my followers know, I have a thing for butterflies, so this next project is right down my alley. I painted the Kaisercraft Table Tidy blue, added some embellishments and turned it into a bouquet holder for some spring butterflies.

I cut the butterflies with my Slice, then I made the bodies by cutting a long strip of paper at a slight angle, then rolling it up (starting with the longer edge).


These papers and chipboard embellishments are from the Bubblegum Hills collection. Here's a quick and easy layout I did with the same range.


As I was cleaning up from the layout, I realized that the backing of the chipboard flowers had this wonderful image printed on the back of it. I'm all for recycling, so I turned it into a card. I added a ribbon and a little "bling" and it was done!


Hope you enjoyed the projects. Thanks for stopping by!
