Butterflies & Fairies in the Garden - Kaisercraft

Hi there everyone 
Thanks so much for stopping by here, today.
I am very excited about this month's latest release products from Kaisercraft.

This months' paper collection has
3 great new release paper yummies.
Today I have created with 
"Ma Cherie" 
a very shabby and rustic collection of papers.
"Fairy Dust" 
these are great papers for any little fairy Birthdays celebration.

So let's start with a stroll in the Garden, with my first project, I created with the "Ma Cherie" Paper collection, I created a Butterfly Pop-Up box card.
This is my take on it, using the Stamp set and Die set from Kaisercraft to create the fluttering butterflies. Decorating the box also with Ma Cherie collectables.

 "BUTTERFLIES in my GARDEN" Pop up box card.

The box folds completely flat, ready to pop inside a large envelope and send to someone special.

Now, these Butterflies are so easy to create with the following Kaiser products and some watercolour pencils and brush.

Step-by-step To create your very own - Butterfly Pop-up Box card.


Kaisercraft Materials required:
Kraft cardstock cut to A4 size of paper 21cm x 29.7cm
Ma Cherie Collectables CT841
Ma Cherie  P1958 Fancy paper
Ma Cherie - Clear stamp CS241
Kaisercraft Dekorative die DD544 Butterfly die
Ma Cherie PP982 Paper Pad
Vintage Ink pad IP723
Other materials:
Clear Acetate sheet
Foam Tape
Double sided tape
Score tool
Other: Watercolour pencils and brush.

Here is another card that I have created, 
an Easel card, with the same butterflies attached on some clear acetate pieces.

"Dreams come true" card 

They look like they are flying away in a flutter. :)

Fairy Dust 
is another great paper collection for any little Fairy who will be celebrating a special occasion. This paper collection, is just fabulous for creating Birthday invitations, Birthday cards and then once you have some photos of your special day, create a wonderful layout or mini album.
Take a stroll now in my Fairy little Garden…...

I created a card with a different twist,
it's more like a mini Card Booklet. I have been making these for many years. Firstly, they can be given as a card with a special pocket for a gift voucher, 
It makes a great little album for placing some photos on the back or inside, a little fairy booklet to treasure.

"Happy Birthday Little Fairy" Card Booklet.

Front Page
Using the Paper P1969 Fairy Wishes and P1968 Star Dust paper sheets,
you can cut the panels out and they fit perfectly in my little booklet.

Inside Page 2  & 3
I decorated this page with some Fairy Dust collectables and
Paper flowers and blooms.
 I created a little pocket and made some
tags with the of the papers and collectables from this collection.

Here is a closer look at the tags inside the pocket page 3 - You can write little messages of love or wishes on the back of these tags or adhere photos on them later.

Page 4 - Here I added the Fairy Dust Collectables butterflies to the page.
and words from the Fairy Dust sticker sheet.

Page 5 - Here I added the Kaiser Flat paper flowers, paper blooms and punched leaves. The last page, the back I left it plain, so there is an opportunity to add some photos on the back.

Products used for the Fairy Dust - Mini Card/Album

After your fairy party I am sure that you will have some very special photos for creating a layout. Using the paper P1965 Enchanted, I did some fussy cutting of the flowers from the created a unique stamping background, with the CS242 Clear stamp set from the Fairy Dust collection.

"Dream & Believe" layout.

After stamping some of the images on my very plain white background, I then coloured some of the flowers and butterflies with watercolour pencils, gently blending them in with some clean water and brush. I love to create unique backgrounds and using clear stamps and some inks is a great way to achieve this.
Then, I gently inked the edges and splattered some colour ink sprays.

I arranged all my cut out flowers around the base of my layout and 
added my matted photos and also some little fairies from the Collectables pack.


Also Now there is a special competition to enter
to win some Kaiser Colouring Books

Go to the Kaiser blog  HERE

Good Luck

Happy Kaiser-Crafting everyone :) Cheers Adriana XX

Vintage Lace Pockets Cards - Couture Creations

Hi there everyone, today I am sharing my three Vintage inspired cards, that I have created using the wonderful new collection of dies from Couture Creations. 

Lace Pockets Die Cuts

and the

Secret Garden DIe
Chirp Chirp  C0724268

These are so easy to create, each die set in the collection come with little flowers or bows or pockets tags.

I have mixed the dies up a little, and cut out the details in some of the dies, just to show you how versatile these dies are. Once you see how I created these cards, I am sure that you will want the whole die collection,
There are 5 different sets to collect. Order them now from your local scrapbooking store, I think these are going to be quite popular.

So, lets begin with the paper, I chose a pink Damask page of the beautiful and wonderful 
Christmas Emporium Collection - Papers  and teamed it up with black , white and rose coloured card stock.

Here are my three cards

Please note the that Vintage images are from my private collection.
I purchased these when I went to Paris last year, but you can use any vintage images.

In this gorgeous set of Christmas papers there are 2 of each design. 
I totally love this vintage paper collection.
Some of the pages could be used not just for Christmas themed
projects. So, today I have created 3 Vintage Cards using the Pink Damask
paper from this collection.

Vintage Card no 1

I have used the
Lace Pockets Die Cuts in different ways, to show you all how versatile they are.

Here is the list of dies for this card, 

as you can see I cut 2 of the delicate design from The Dorsetshire Die cut pillow die, and placed the white flourish in the centre of each panel. Framed my image inside The Blandford die cut and decorated with the bow from The Chantilly die cut  The background is black square card stock.
Then I added a bit of sparkle with Vintage Gemstones around the lacework.

Vintage Card no 2

The background is black square card stock, covered with the

Then I cut Chirp Chirp die cut from the Secret Garden DIe and adhered it to the bottom on my vintage image with Couture Creations 3D dots.

Creative Christmas Kaisercraft Ideas

Hello everyone, thanks for stopping by here today.
 Adriana here today sharing some ideas for 
Creative Christmas Projects

The countdown is on, and I can't believe it but did you know that there only 3 months to Christmas!!!!!! Are you ready????   


Today, I will be sharing some Christmas festive fun. I have created some Christmas Cards, an advent calendar and some Paper Decorations for decorating your Christmas tree.

 I love Christmas, it's a great time of the year, I love the colour and the brightness of Christmas. It’s a time to celebrate with family and friends. Decorating Christmas trees, walls and tabletops of your home, can be so much fun and so easy to do, especially with the wonderful Kaisercraft paper and products.  It’s definitely a great way to get the children involved too, 
in so many ways.

Christmas craft creating doesn’t have to go over the top and can save you a little bit of money too. I think everyone appreciates a handmade card or gift, more now, than ever before.
So, here are some suggestions to get you started.
Also, why not get the children or grandchildren to help you and get
 involved as well.

Christmas Cards for everyone to create.

Firstly, Handmade cards are so lovely to receive. 
Sending Christmas cards in the mail these days is a dying art, so I am going to show you how easy and affordable they are to make.
You can create very simple Christmas cards or very intricate ones, for that very special family member or friend. The possibilities are endless and so easy with Kaisercraft Christmas papers and products.

Here are just a few ideas for Christmas cards, I also created some cards using a snowflake stamp, these Christmas cards are very simple to create and you could get your children or grandchildren to create them. They are so much fun. 

Anyone can create simple christmas cards with the Kaisercraft papers and Collectables pieces. Advanced card makers, use die cuts with a manual die cut machines, and sometimes these cards are so very 3 Dimensional cards, that you can have them on display in the home.

Here, I have created some christmas cards. 
Using the same die cut, but in different ways, and with different christmas papers.
Each card looks different and the possibilities are endless.

Using the Kaiser Decorative die  DD530 Nativity Scene and Home for Christmas papers.

Here are some other cards - Using the same Die DD530 Nativity Scene but with the Silver Bells paper Christmas collection. 

and finally a Tri fold card for display on a bookcase or table.

Here are some very simple cards with the "Home for Christmas' Collection
paper pad and Collectables, very easy to do. Just add some double sided foam tape under each collectable piece for added dimension.

Now for a very simple card, that you could get your children to create. Using the Stampset from the Silver Bells collection, some ink pads, and some glitter glue, you could create these simple bauble cards.

Here is a quick step-by-step on how create this very simple christmas card.

Advent Calendars

Kaisercraft have the best range of DIY advent calendars.
These are a great hit with the little people.
You can put messages, jokes or chocolates inside each little box.
Counting down the days to Christmas Day can be such a treat and lots of fun with the family. These also make great gifts, as they can be put away after each year and used again and again.

Here is my Advent Calendar using the Kaisercraft SB2066 Advent Calendar
and the Silver Bells paper collection.
Lots of soft pastels and touches of glitter on this advent calendar.

You might notice the Wooden Flourish Sleigh Scene FL573 Flourish Sleigh Scene, this is another new release product, and it just fits in perfectly inside this advent calendar. The little boxes and numbers are included with the advent calendar pack.

I die cut some Poinsettia's flowers and added some glitter flourish bling, adhering them on the top of the advent calendar.

There are so many other Kaiser new advent calendars available - 
check them all HERE

The advent Calendars all come with these little boxes,but you have
to glue together, yourself. It's very easy to do.

THEN to cover these little cute boxes, Kaisercraft have released
a new product to help you cover each of these little boxes.
DD721 Advent Box Diecut
How fabulous!!!! these die cut pieces cover the little boxes perfectly.

Just fold all the flaps, glue to outside of chipboard boxes, decorate as required. 

Die cut DD721 Advent Box & all my cut out pieces ready to be covered on the little boxes.

Tree ornaments  Ideas

Dressing up the christmas tree can be so much fun and a great way for all the family to be involved. Christmas paper ornaments are so easy to make especially with the different themed Kaisercraft Christmas papers. I am sure there is one that will match your home theme. Best of all, they are all co-ordinated to match together.

Here I created some tree hanging ornaments, these are very quick and easy to do. Kaisercraft new Christmas die cuts make it so easy to create these little cute Ornaments.

To create these very simple ornaments.
Materials you will need. 

Home for Christmas papers - P1938 Eggnog, P1943 Laurel.
Glue, Green ribbon, Red cardstock.
Kaisercraft clear stickers - ST921 Season's Greeting
Kaisercraft diecuts - DD324 Dove, DD530 Nativity Scene, DD536 Snowflake.
also DD509 Nesting Rectangle.

Using your manual die cut machine, cut the Rectangle from the rectangle die cut and red card stock. Using the next size of the rectangle die cut, cut the inside of the red card stock.
Now you have a rectangle frame.

Cut your snowflake, Nativity scene or Dove and adhere with glue on the edges.

Decorate with kaisercraft Clear stickers. Attached a ribbon bow to the front of ornament and a hooped ribbon piece on the back of the paper ornament.

Now,  here is one ornament using a small 4 x4 canvas board
(you can buy these from most art and craft supplier or retailer). I covered the top with some christmas paper and cut out the Nativity scene diecut and paper, glued a ribbon on the back and ribbon bow on the front.

Here are some more ideas…..using the Kaisercraft Holly leaf diecut DD327 
I created one with Silver Bells paper collection and the other with Home for Christmas papers, Just you show you all that any coloured theme can work wonderfully.

Well, that all from me today, I hope that I have given you all some inspiration to start creating some wonderful decorations, projects and cards for Christmas……

Happy Christmas Creating with Kaisercraft :)
