Kaisercraft P.S I Love You Layout with Video


Kaisercraft P.S I Love You Layout by Alicia McNamara

Today I am sharing a Layout and Process Video using the gorgeous new P.S I Love You Collection.  This is the Layout I made and below is the video of how I made it...

This collection is such a pretty one...I'm a big fan of the colours grey and pink, they go so well together.  These papers really are a joy to create with.

All of these little scrappy bits of paper were actually off cuts from other layouts and cards I have already made with this collection.  I didn't cut anything specifically for this layout I just used scraps!  Scraps are perfect for building layers behind a photo.

The Collectables in this collection worked so well with the scrappy layers.

I painted the wooden butterfly with some white paint to match it in to the collection.

The silver gel pen and splats of paint give a very subtle detail to the background paper.

Kaisercraft "Peek-a-Boo" Layout with Video Tutorial

Kaisercraft Peek-a-Boo Layout and Video Tutorial by Alicia McNamara

On the 1st of September 2016 we welcomed a second beautiful boy into our family  - Billy Blake McNamara.  So you can understand how excited I was when I found out that Kaisercraft was releasing a new set of baby papers called the Peek-a-Boo Collection.  Today I am sharing a Layout with Process Video using the blue baby papers from "Peek-a-Boo".  It was nice to have the opportunity to scrap this recent photo of Baby Billy.
Here is the video of how I made the Layout:


This Layout features the gorgeous new Decorative Die released this month called Carousel.  It is just beautiful and will be perfect for your Baby cards, Baby layouts and other Baby projects.

I have been loving using the Kaisercolour Gel Pens with the Kaisercraft Templates.  It gives a very accurate pattern, much neater and clearer than paint, Kaiser Mists or texture paste.  Plus there is no mess to clean up!!

  I have the original 24 pack of Gel Pens, but now you can also purchase 12 packs, a 48 pack and each colour can also be purchased singularly.  Check out the full range of gel pens here and the full range of Kaisercraft templates here.  There are endless possibilities combining these two amazing Kaisercraft products!

Kaisercraft "Party Time" Birthday Cards

Kaisercraft Party Time Birthday Cards by Alicia McNamara

I received this lovely "Happy Birthday" Decorative Die in my DT box and I thought wont this be useful! How often do we need a Happy birthday Sentiment for those hundreds of birthday cards we make!  I chose to make two cards with the new "Party Time" Collection.

I love this Peacock Foil Cardstock.  I chose colours from the Paper Pad to match it.  I used the specialty paper from the collection which is the White Circles a 12x12 Die Cut.  I cut it down to fit onto my cards.  Then chose paper to fill the circles.

Then I went with Fuchsia Foil Card Stock and matching papers.  I also used a Balloon die to make the balloons and tied the strings to a little wooden flourish.

These cards will be great for my birthday card stash.

Kaisercraft Baby Mobile and a photo of Baby Billy

Kaisercraft Peek-a-Boo Baby Mobile by Alicia McNamara

In my DT Pack this term I received a Baby Mobile which was exciting, as we have been in full-on baby mode here since Billy Blake was born on September 1st.

It was a simple project to create.  The trickiest part was getting the strings to balance evenly so the mobile would hang balanced.

I decorated each piece simply with papers, some cheesecloth material, a white ribbon and a paper bloom.

I decided to go with a mix of pink and blue papers because then the Baby Mobile can be suitable for both baby girls and boys.

This mobile was very tricky to photograph which is why I have so many photos to share.

Our little Baby Billy is growing up.  He is three months old now and a ray of sunshine when he is happy! We can see he is working on sitting up, and it looks like a tooth might be on the way!  Here is a little photo taken one night not so long ago...
