My Kraft plus pink layout for this months challenge at Kraft plus challenge.

I have used the Blossom template from Kaisercraft with texture paste and some Heidi Swapp pink colorshine. Lots of pink papers from my stash including a piece of pink flocked vellum I have had for quite a few years.

finalist @ papercraft expo

Yay! I just received an email to say I am a finalist in the Metallic Layout Challenge at the Papercraft Expo. I blogged my layout a little while back, but here it is…

It has gold leaf smudged around, metallic card cut into tiny squares on pop dots down the right hand side, also metallic washi tape top and bottom, its just not showing up well in the photo, but its pretty shiny! The title is actually metallic also, its pink metallic card cut on the silhouette cameo. Gold german scrap just poking out on the right side, and more pink metallic card used with a Kaisercraft die (very fine) on the left, gold sequins and gold leaf on the cabochon rose above the flower. I also used texture paste coloured with pink ink and a Kaisercraft mini template (Blossom which is yet to be released ) to get the cute blossom effect on the left. This is all Bo Bunny papers except the Kaisercraft die release paper with the black script on it, I love this stuff, its great for an extra layer. There is also 3 layers of gold vellum.

Thanks for visiting my blog, and I hope you get to the Expo this weekend if you’re in Brisbane.

Hi there, sharing a card today. I love these cute camper vans and have made loads of cards using them. I use a silhouette cut file, I have manipulated it a bit to suit my cards. They are so fun to make! A sheet from an old dictionary from the op shop, paper doily, buttons for the wheel and the little banner was cut on the silhouette also. Finished with some ribbon and some black hand drawn doodling.

2017/2018 Kaisercraft Design Team Application

Hi there, I’m very excited to be sharing this post today. I have been lucky enough to go through to the 2nd round in the Kaisercraft Design Team Application process.


I was so stunned when I received an email from Kaisercraft, and really excited that they were sending me a package of goodness to make a project with for the 2nd round.

Wish me lots of luck!

We were given the yet to be released “Lilac Whisper” collection. It’s a gorgeous collection with florals in lilac and spearmint tones. I spread it out on my big table and enjoyed just looking at all the lovely papers. I wanted to stay true to my style and make a layout, although I had so many ideas in my head of things I could make, I went with what I love best and that is to create layouts.

After much deliberation, I decided to make a couple of layouts and choose the best one for my entry. I wanted to use everything! I made 4 layouts and a card. Now the task to choose the ONE…

This is my one project


My inspiration was seeing only snippets of the patterned papers left after making 3 other layouts and immediately I knew inchies would showcase this beautiful collection of papers. I love making inchies and this project was seriously fun to do. I also wanted to use as much of the pretty product I could. I used texture paste with the mini designer template and some kaiser mist on some of the patterned paper to incorporate into my layout and added some stamped detail on a few random inchies. The dark background seemed to make the colours pop and I love how this turned out.

I started by punching out a whole bunch of squares with my 1 inch paper punch. Then I also punched out the same amount of squares of white cardstock. IMG_1542IMG_1549

I used texture paste coloured with Kaiser mist and the cute Mini designer template “blossom” on some of the patterned paper and set aside to dry. I like how the texture paste turned out ombre as I didn’t mix the mist in thoroughly.


Then I set the inchies out around my photo to get the order looking varied.


I chose some random inchies to stamp with black ink to add extra interest.


Using a glue stick, I adhered the patterned paper inchies to the white cardstock inchies and set aside to dry. I find this gives the inchies some extra dimension and height.


Keeping them in the same formation working from the bottom to the top. I added foam squares to each inchie.


I then inked each one with black ink and a sponge to make them stand out even more.


Starting at the bottom with my ruler, I lined up the first row of inchies and stuck them down. The following rows I just carried on using the first row as a guide.


To finish off I used my machine to sew around the edge of the layout.


and finally a few cut out scallops, rhinestones and butterflies. Done!





Wish me luck with my application for the Kaisercraft Design Team 2017/2018!

I hope you love Kaisercrafts new Lilac Whisper collection as much as I do.
