Travel Album This album was created using the Kaisercraft Camera Album and their June Check-In Collection.

Now onto the really cool parts of this collection – the acetate sheet and acetate shapes. In the picture above I have layered a cut circle of acetate over the same size circle of paper for added dimension In this picture (above) I used one of the small acetate pieces over the paper to form a frame for the stickers. They make a great, easy to use alternative […]
Hi Everyone Today I am sharing a couple more projects I created for Kaisercraft using their April Collection – Charlotte’s Dream.

To see the products at amazon.com click here. Blessing Album This blank album is a great gift idea – the cover is already decorated and the recipient just has to add their own pictures. You could use this for any number of occasions. Vintage AlbumA super-simple album created using the technique shown here. This is also blank inside Simple Note Books These are simply cheap notebooks covered in paper and decorated with a couple of stickers.

Hi Everyone It’s the last day of April so I thought I would share some projects I created for Kaisercraft using their April Collection – Fine and Sunny. To see the full Collections on Kaisercraft’s website – click here. To see the products at amazon.com click here. The Letter “C” I created this for my daughter’s room. It’s fun and just a tiny bit girly – just like her! Baby Mini Album I wish I had some photos of the inside of this album but I sent it off in such a rush that I didn’t get a chance to take any! Treat Containers These little treat containers are a great way to use up scraps. I have a full tutorial on my blog here. This really is a fun collection – and tomorrow I have a couple to share using the other April Collection – Charlotte’s Dream. Please post a comment with any questions – Lowri 🙂 I am linking up this post to these websites here.
Hi Everyone I recently created this set of drawers using the Kaisercraft Fine and Sunny Collection – it was even on display at CHA earlier in the year which made me pretty pleased! At the end of this post I have also announced the winner of my recent Kaisercraft Giveaway. Fine and Sunny Mini Drawers To make these I sanded then painted all the pieces before assembling using a strong wood-glue. Each drawer is decorated with paper from the collection and some resin blooms. The sides of the drawers are decorated using the stickers and chipboard. These mini drawers are really easy to put together. Kaisercraft seem to have really ironed out any technical problems they had in the past which meant you had to file some pieces to fit – these fit like a glove! Kaisercraft Giveaway Now to announce the winner of my recent Kaisercraft Technologic Giveaway. The randomly picked winner is Ruth G from Winfield, IL who left the 128th comment. Congratulations Ruth – please email me here so I can arrange to send your prize. I had over 200 entries to this giveaway and I would like to thank each and every person for commenting and […]
Hi Everyone The last of my Technologic posts today and a tutorial to share too! Please note that the contest previously detailed here has closed. You can see who won here. Magnets I LOVE these bright magnets! I have made a few sets and it is always fun to pick out small details in the paper patterns to make them. You can see a quick tutorial on how to make them below. Magnets Tutorial Cut or punch circles of paper slightly smaller than the flat side of the glass dome Apply Mod Podge to the surface of the paper you want visible through the magnet and glue onto flat side of magnet When dry, apply a layer of Mod Podge to the other side o the paper (outside) Using a super-strong craft glue, stick a magnet to the underside and leave to dry Magnet Board This board was simply a cheap metal kitchen sign from the dollar store which I covered in paper and sealed with Mod-Podge. I then used various elements from the collection to decorate. You can see all my posts using this collection here: 1) Do the Robot 2) Fun Family Frame 3) Rocket Door Hanger 4) […]
Hi Everyone Another Technologic post today – and this is a super quick post for a super quick project – cheap, easy, fun and one the kids could get involved in too. Please note that the contest previously detailed here has closed. You can see who won here.

Hi Everyone The second of my Kaisercraft Technologic projects to share today and it’s one of my all-time favorites! Please note that the contest previously detailed here has closed. You can see who won here. Family Frame This project shows that this collection doesn’t have to all be about boys projects and robots! The bright colors in this collection made a great base for this family photo frame project. This project was also published in the Kaisercraft March Magazine so I have instructions too! Instructions Paint all edges and the base with 2 coats of deep turquoise paint. Print photos to fit the three largest of the stand-up pieces. Back all four stands with paper of your choosing and adhere the photos to the front. Create borders along the top edge with pieces from the sticker sheet. Apply chosen rubons to strips of paper or elements from the paper pad and mount onto photos using dimensional tape. Plaint some plain chipboard stars in co-ordinating colours and attach a sparklet into the centre for extra shine. Decorate the front (smallest) piece of your display using elements from the collection and a die-cut shipboard frame. Using more stickers and rhinestones – decorate […]
Hi Everyone Another exciting first for me this month as I had 4 projects published in the Kaisercraft Workshop magazine and today I am sharing the first of them. You can also see details on the Kaisercraft website here and link to the magazine here. Robots Banner This banner would be perfect for a party or even just to decorate a room. The colors are so bright and these robots are just so cool! To get started, paint all edges of the pennants album with two coats of red paint. Cut contrasting triangles from patterned papers. Glue the larger triangle to the album page and then use dimensional tape to adhere the smaller one on top for added dimension. Hand or die-cut (I used this die)cogs from the patterned paper and then use smaller circles of paper to back them with a contrasting color. Find the robots from the collectables pack and use dimensional tape to mount them, tucking them behind the cogs. Use large alphas to spell out the name you would like. Use additional items from the collectables pack as well as more die-cut cogs to decorate the first pennant if desired. Thread a ribbon through the holes […]
Hi Everyone A few weeks ago my kids were invited to a fun birthday party at the local Aero Club. This Kaisercraft “On the Move” range was perfect for creating a card for a plane-mad 5 year old! I have used a combination of the “Take-Off” paper and “Descent” acetate sheet to create the base of the card – which measures 5 inches square. I then used a combination of the Collectables, Stickers and Rubons to decorate the front of the card. The stickers are ideal to both add a little decoration and hide the join between the paper and the acetate I am not usually a big fan of small alphas as they don’t usually line up – but for a small name-tag like this – it doesn’t matter! Please leave a comment with any questions. Lowri 🙂 I am linking up this post to these websites here.
Hi Everyone Another Pink Paislee project to share today – this time using the Hometown Summer Collection. At the end of this post I have also announced the winner of my Echo Park giveaway. This bright and fun collection was perfect for decorating these Mini Drawers from Kaisercraft. I have used the printed tissue from the Pink Paislee Daily Junque Collection to cover the sides and edges of the project before covering the top and sides with patterned paper from the collection. This was easily done by cutting the tissue to size and using mod-podge to stick it to the mdf project. The baubles make wonderful handles for the drawers and small elements cut from the borders stickers make these great little flags on which to mount them. These gorgeous little girls from the chipboard pops add such a fun feel to the sides of the drawers and even the back of the project gets a fun and funky feel with this alphabet printed paper from the 6×6 paper pack. Hopefully my sister doesn’t see this post before Christmas as I am going to give her these for her little daughter! Please post a comment with any questions. Lowri 🙂 […]
