Kaisercraft Enchanted Garden Collection

Hi all! It's Kerry here today! It's been a while :). I have given the Design Team girls a month off with everything that is happening around here (in fact they didnt get any goodies this month, but be prepared for next month as lots will be on the way to them next week!)

So I thought I would jump on and do a post myself!. I finally got to sit down last night and make some cards using the Kaisercraft Enchanted Garden Collection. To complete the cards i used one of my kits which includes a paper pad, sticker sheet, collectables and 2 12x12 journal card sheet. The collection pieces can be found HERE in my store.

First card...Using my sticker sheet and paper pad, and a couple of butterflies from the collectables...such a simple card but I loved how it turned out! The saying Cherish- to treat with affection and tenderness; hold dear is just beautiful!
The next card I used the 6x6 sheet of glitter fairy paper and a frame from the collectables to create a picture frame on the front of the card..I cut a section of the fairy paper to match the frame and then popped it off the page with foam dots. I also cut out the petals in the flowers from the collectables and bent a fraction to make it pop of the page!

Next up the fairy,again the flowers and the fairy i trimmed from the collectables as i didnt like the white space around it :)...added some glitter to the flowers.

Believe....I just adore the butterflies in this collection!

The Glitter paper in thic collection is just so beautiful and very very glittery (in fact this paper has no cardstock showing) so its good to show it off and keep plain. The sticker dots on the left hand side are Freckled Fawn, a NEW brand that has just entered the store in the past few weeks! I am loving the dots and the wood veneers are to die for! Check them out HERE
I hope you enjoyed my ceations and it gives you a little inspiration to use the Kaisercraft Enchanted Garden collection for that special little girl in your life
Until next time
Happy Scrapping

Tigerlilly Book Ends

Alanna here today, taking a step back from the brand new collections and forging on with my goal to use up my old ones! I made some butterfly book ends recently with the Tigerlilly collection from Kaisercraft. The book ends themselves aren't kaisercraft, but they do have butterfly book ends as well (that I actually prefer better, but needed to use up these ones!).

I combined the pink butterfly paper from the Tigerlilly collection with pink and white paint, flowers, pearls and butterflies for the super girlie look I was wanting. I love how feminine they've turned out.

I especially love the little white butterflies sticking out of the flowers. I coated the wooden flourishes with opaque white enamel accents and glued them into place with glossy accents - hope they last!

The back piece is printed words from another Tigerlilly paper - just something plain for the back as they won't really be seen. A nice little "secret" bit of inspiration :)

Thanks for stopping by today :)

Kaisercraft True Romance Collection Card

 Hi,  I hope you like my simple but I feel elegant Kaisercraft True Romance Card.  I started off with Kaisercraft card stock, I used the Kaisercraft Doily Stencil which I placed on the cardstock. I then used Tim Holtz Distress Ink pad and blending tool, in a swirling motion all over the Kaisercraft Doily template. I was very happy with the result!

I then teamed it with the die cuts from the Kaisercraft true romance collection ie the butterflies, and the Love title.  The flower border on the side of the card is from the 6 x 6 Kaisercraft paper stack.
I feel the whole Kaisercraft True Romance Collection is so versatile for any projects you have in mind. The flowers are also Kaisercraft.
The lace I used on the card is a bo bunny lace.  All these supplies can be purchased on Kerry's Crafty Cards and Cuts.  Thank you Paula

I am in love with this card!!! I spent half the night awake designing it. As it turns out I didn't have the pink Kaisercraft flowers I thought I had but the purple ones work just as well.

Materials used for this card:

Kaisercraft Enchanted Garden paper collection

Kaisercraft card stock in Ballet

Kaisercraft paper flowers in assorted colours

Kaisercraft Pearls

Metal Tag I found at my local post office. 

Hope you all enjoy as much as I do :)

12 X 12 Kaisercraft True Romance Collection

I really love the Kaisercraft True Romance Collection.  I started by using the 6 by 6 Kaisercraft paper pad and mounted my  photo on this paper.  I then inked around the edges of the matting paper. I used a distressing tool around the 12 x 12 Kaisercraft paper. 
 The finished product. This page will be going into close friends 50th birthday present for her sister.
The Title was done using the Kaisercraft True Romance Sticker Sheet.  I love how the individual words are one sticker.  The small flowers are Kaisercraft flowers.  The bird cage is part of the Kaisercraft True Romance Collection.  The butterflies are made from coloured burlap.

 The embellishments are from the Kaisercraft True Romance Collection. These are so versatile, that they can be used for pages, cards and off the page creations.
I love the Kaisercraft Doily that I used to finish off the corner of my layout.
All of these supplies can be purchased from
I hope you enjoy the Kaisercraft True Romance Collection as much as I have.  Paula.

Sweet Pea Wall Art

Hey everyone, it's Alanna here today. Sorry it's been a bit quiet on the blog front this month - we're all had some unexpected things pop up in our lives over the last couple of weeks. But I'm here today to share a beyond the page project I started a week ago, and finally finished today. Rushing to get it up on the blog (the glue hasn't even dried yet!) so I can go have a nap before my night shift tonight!

As some of you might know from the facebook page, Kerry and I went over to Geelong, Victoria, for Kaisercraft's annual retailers day. While there, we got to shop in the warehouse. And by shop, I mean, I walked around picking things off the shelves and convincing Kerry to get them for me ;) These BTP 3D wall arts were one of them - I got them in butterfly, heart, and today's project - bird. I can't beleive how easy this was to make - don't let the fact it took me a week to get it done fool you...

I used this month's Sweet Pea collection from Kaisercraft - papers (dandy and sassy), sticker sheet and collectables. I also used KaiserColour paint (pale beige) and a pearl (latte) for the birds eye. And I inked the edges with Tim Holtz antique linen distress ink.

I cut a quote from the sticker sheet in thirds and also added a subtle heart that blends in perfectly with the background paper. I raised both of these up on foam tape. For those of you who don't like using stickers (like me) I have two little tips for you. One, is what I do more often than not - adhere foam tape to the sticker and then you can play around with positioning a lot easier. The second tip is from Melissa Kennedy herself - talcalm powder on the sticker and it looses its stick.

All the flowers and leaves in this bottom corner are from the collectables pack. Again, I raised a couple up with foam tape. Love adding dimension, especially to beyond the page projects!

And that's it. Thanks for stopping by the blog today :)

Sweet Pea Card Tutorial

Hi everyone, it's Alanna here today to share with you a card I made with the new Sweet Pea collection from Kaisercraft (available here in Kerry's store). I've put together a little tutorial as well for you.

First of all... the card we will be making:

 Please note, the finished card is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" in size.

And now for the tutorial:

  • 2 pieces of cardstock - 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"
  • Papers of your choice (I've used the Sweet Pea paper pad)
  • Paper cutter and scoring tool (I've used the score blade that came with my trimmer)
  • Adhesive
  • Coordinating embellishments/stamps/etc to decorate your card
  • Bone folder
  • Craft knife and ruler
  • Ink for edges

Step One - Making the Card Base

Score the first piece of cardstock at 4 1/4" and fold in half. On the side that is the front, cut a window, 1” from all 4 sides.

Step Two - Making the Lever Insert

Score the second piece of cardstock at 4 1/4" and 6 3/8”. Go in 2 1/8” from the left edge and score down to 1” from the top and up to 1” from the bottom.

To cut the “lever” that will fit through the card front “window”, go in 1” from the left edge and cut a slit that starts 1” from the top and goes down to 1” from the bottom.

Cut from the top and bottom ends of that slit over to the 2 1/8” score line. This produces the “lever” that will fit through the front window.
 Fold on all score lines. Folds should be valley/mountain/valley folded.

Step Three - Putting them Together
Add adhesive to the “backside” of the left and right panels of the cardstock you just scored and glue it inside the card. The “lever” tucks inside of the front “window”. If this is a tight fit, trim a sliver off the top and bottom of the lever so that it will move freely through the window.

Step Four - Decorating and Embellishing
Front of the card -
Cut a 4” x 5 1/4” piece of patterned paper. Cut in 3/4” from all 4 sides to allow for the window. Ink edges if you wish and adhere to the front of your card.

Inside of the card -
Cut three strips of patterned paper 1 7/8" x 5 1/4".
Cut two small pieces 1 7/8" x 3/4".
Cut one long strip 7/8" x 3 3/8"

Ink and adhere two of the thin strips to the right hand panels on in the inside of the card.

Take the 3rd thin strip, cut in 1” from the right side, 3/4” from the top and 3/4” from the bottom. Cut vertically between those two cuts to make a C shaped piece for the left hand panel of your card. Ink and adhere.

Adhere smaller pieces as shown in picture below to remaining panel.

Front panel -
Cut a rectangle 3 3/8" x 2" to fit on front panel. I used a different paper to what I was using for the fronts and insides of the card.
Decorate remainder of card as desired.

Thanks for stopping by today! I would love to see your creations from this tutorial so please post on the facebook page, or in the comment section of this blog post.

PS. This tutorial was adapted from one on SplitCoastStampers which you can find here, along with a video by Laura Lipe.

Project Life is in store now!

Hello everyone, Alanna here today to share with you my new scrapbooking love - project life! Or "pocket page scrapbooking"...

The original Project Life concept was founded by Becky Higgins and you can read all about it on her blog over here. Basically, it is a "simplified" version of scrapbooking and you can make it as quick and easy as you want. The basic concept is to get a core kit, or papers from your stash (so many companies are making "pocket page" style items now), photos, page protectors and a pen. Put the photos and the cards in, do some journaling and you're done.

Project Life is now available to buy FROM AUSTRALIAN STORES! Up until this month, Australians had to purchase from a NZ company as they were the only retailer this side of the United States. It's a huge thing for anyone who loves this concept and so many people are getting into it now it is more available. The Becky Higgins Project Life products are available in Kerry's store right now!

I wanted to jump on today and show you a bit more about what it all is. I have a couple of pages to show you using the new Midnight and Blush collections. I'm yet to do my journaling but this shows you a bit about how the pocket pages are designed and what some of the cards look like. Midnight is my definite favourite so far!

Thanks for stopping by! If anyone has any questions about this style of scrapbooking please ask Kerry or myself! It's a great way to get lots of years into an album without the fuss! Memories into albums... that's what this is all about isn't it?

A Retreat achieves so much more!

Hi all!

I have just returned from a retreat, run by a fellow SA scrapbooking business Seaside Scrapping on the weekend with Alanna. It was a great weekend and i was amazed at how much i achieved!

The first is the NEW release from kaisercraft Blast off! I love this boys range and it was so much fun to work with, the cute monsters in the collectables made me smile and i cant wait to make more cards from this collection, and i also have a project in mind!

This collection has been very popular and can be found over on my website HERE.

I also decided to give the NEW Kaisercraft True Romance Collection a go! Lots of girly pink in this one!

Lastly, I have been in desperate need of some new baby cards both boy and girl and took along some Echo Park Bundle of Joy Boy supplies! I am totally in love with this collection and could have easily have scrapped some more! I have so far managed to make 11 cards from a paper pad, 12x12 journal cards, and a sticker sheet. There is stil plenty to keep me going! The collection can be found in my store HERE. I still have some 12x12 papers and sticker sheets to add as well!

I also managed to get some gift tags from the Kaisercraft collection summer breeze completed as well! So all up it was a successful weekend and hopefully another one is on its way again soon as it was great to get some more cards to add to my selling stash!

Happy Scrappin'
