Scrapbooking Process for #ME Kaisercraft Collection

Hi all,

 I decided to do a scrapbooking process video using Kaisercraft's new collection #ME.

Thanks for watching..

Prima Hybrids- Off with their heads!

Hi Everyone,
Im back again to show you what Ive been doing during the not so lazy summer holidays.
This is a project I shared as a Team designer on AuntyVera Scrap and Craft blog. You can check it out here.
Im one of those people who gets a bit bored with using the same stamps over and over again so I got this GREAT IDEA!!!
What would each Julie Nutting Doll look like if her head was placed on another body??
Lets test it out!!!
So to start off with, I only have the following Julie Nutting Doll Stamps:
Sea Sallie Mermaid

Nikki with the Peasant Dress:

And Aidan (the only boy stamp I have):

So the first thing I did was stamp them all out!! This took lots of time and in my fervour, I didn't not take pictures at this stage. But you know what that stage looks like !!
Let me just say that I use Archival Ink for all my stamping!!
Then, the next stage is the one that takes the most time!!
Colouring in (I use Kaiser Fusion Markers) or paper piecing (with scrapbooking paper …

Faux Woodgrain Background

Dear Readers,
I just LOVE the look of wood grain paper. I think it looks exactly like weathered wood and sometimes I feel like if I reach out and touch, it might just feel like real wood. But of course, it is just the illusion - faux wood- if you will.
Here are 2 pieces of 12 x 12 paper I got from the recent Coastal Escape Collection by Kaisercraft

Look at all the details in these papers. The knots, the wood grain, the NAILS!!  I love it SOOO much.
So I wondered if it was possible to find a technique that would allow you to take normal white card stock and turn it into a faux wood background.
I looked on the YT and found a few tutorials and pooled all the techniques to come up with my own way of making faux wood backgrounds:
Stamp TV's tutorial MayMay's tutorial Kimi Orton's tutorial

Step 1:

Coastal Escape Cards and ATCs

Dear All,
Today I am making cards and ATCs to fit a summer beach theme for a group I am swapping with.
First, I used water color paper and produced a lovely layout using this color palette.

Next, I sued this anchors embossing folder by KaiserCraft to create some dimension to the paper.

Here I layered the paper with a "rope" speciality paper from the Coastal Escape collection.
I used pieces from the ephemera pack and some hessian from my own stash to create this card below

A second card I made:

My third card:

So here are all the cards in one view:

Now for the ATC's:
No 1:

No 2:

No 3:

Here they are all together:

Here they all are:

Now, I need to decide which card is going with which ATC to which swap partner. Decisions! Decisions :)
Thank you so much for stopping by..
Until we meet again.. Happy Crafting. xxAmiraInOz
