Silver Bells Advent Calendar

As a Design Team member, I got the Advent Block calendar (SB2316). I decided to use the Silver Bells collection, to decorate the advent calendar. Silver Bells collection is a great vintage collection, perfect with the soft colours.

The numbers are Kaisercrafts chipboard Alphabet 3 (CD109). I have colourd the numbers with KaiserMist, Glitter or cracle paint.

I have used gesso on the flowers, to create a snow effect.

The lamp is a diecut made with one of Kaisercraft's dies (Street Light DD513).

The gnome, is a photo of my frosty garden gnome.

A Christmas card with the Silver Bells Collection

Cherished - a mixed media layout

Today, I have got a new blogpost over at Kaisercraft's blog. 

I have used the brand new Generation collection, and created a layout with a photo of my best friend and me.  The photo was taken this summer, and it is showing the view out of the Oslo fjord in the background. The Generations Paper Pad has a super set of papers in soft colours, perfect for layouts.

I have used a mix of flowers and KaiserMists. I have also used a lot of the collectables in between all the layers.

Several people has asked for a tutorial, to build the car from the templates or from the cutouts made by the Silhouette.

Merry and bright, a candle in a box

Today, Kaisercraft Design Team is showing Home decor items with the Home for Christmas Collection.  I wanted to create something that can be used as a small Christmas gift. I decorated a candle, and made a gift box for it.

I have used the paper "Eggnog" to cover the box and for the "belt" for the candle,

Flowers are from Wild Orchid and Kaisercraft.

The text is a sticker, and texture has been added to the box. 

If you create something similar - remember to remove the paper around the candle before you light the candle.

A mixed media altered mask

Last night, I created this mixed media mask as a different "card " for young girl, that was celebrated today. 

This is a mask from Panduro, and I have mounted a wooden stick to one side of it. The mask is covered with paper from Prima. 

I have used metal embellishments and flowers from Prima and Wild Orchid. Then I sprayed with Prima's Color Bloom spray mists and KaiserMists and added different other mediums, Finnabair's glitter and microbeads.

The tag -A Touch of Gold - EM423 is from Kaisercraft

The night before Christmas, a mixed media Christmas layout

Today, Kaisercraft's design team are showing you white, shabby chic Christmas layouts with the Silver Bells collection in Kaisercraft's blog.

I made a layout with a photo of my Jack Russell, taken the first Christmas we had her. For her, it was quite natural to see the Christmas tree foot with water, as her water bowl.

The layout has been layered. I have used layers of 3D tape to create some depth to the layout.

Simple Christmas shaker card with Kaisercraft's Silver Bells Collection

Silver Bells collection is one of Kaisercraft's wonderful September collections. Today, the Design Team is showing cards with the paper pad and stamp set in Kaisercraft's blog.

I have created a shaker cards, with small silver beads inside.

I have stamped a Christmas ornament onto acetate, and glued the acetate behind a circular hole. Then I added some space for the beads, just by adding 3D foam tape at the edge of the inside of the hole, before I glued the top panel onto some of the blue patterned paper from the paper pad.

I have used a stencil to create the embossing in the white bazzill. This was done by sending the stencil through a Big shot with the embossing mats (Silicone Rubber Mat and Texturz Impressions Pad)  and the bazzill.

Kaisercraft Products: Paper Pad, CT837 | Collectables, CS700 | Clear Stamp-Silver Bells, IP719 | Black, RS403 | Coconut Weave Cardstock CD 101 | Template T623 Christmas Quarters (used as embossing folder).

Craft Wall Storage - IKEA hacks (with a list of what you need to create it)

 During the summer holiday, I got my first Kaisercraft parcel, as a part of the Design Team. Kaisercraft really spoil us with collections and stash. I wanted to keep my Kaisercraft things separate from my other craft stuff to make it easier to work with the DT tasks. For a few months now, I have stored the stash in card board boxes until I found a good storage solution. I wanted something mounted on the wall, where I can see all the products. I thought about getting some interior from a shop, but didn't find any suitable.

So I decided to wonder around IKEA, to see what I could find.This is what I came up with. 

IKEA - ALGOT shelves (60x58 and 60x38) (mounted directly onto the wall). These shelves are magnetic. The screws used are from Clas Ohlson and are for their tool board (but the tool board have the same size holes as these shelves) I have also used the hooks for these tool boards (although the spacing of the holes are different than the tool board, therefore I only used one screw to fix the hooks) 

I have also added BYGEL Rail from IKEA. The screw holes on the rails fits exactly into the holes on the shelves, with the same spacing between the holes. 

I have also added BYGEL wire basket and S hooks, I also got a set of RIKTIG curtain hooks from IKEA with clips and hooks for tool storage. These curtain hooks will slot onto the rail, if you bend/open the hook slightly at the top.

Kaisercraft dies come with magnetic boards. These boards can go straight onto the shelves, as they are magnetic. This is an easy way of storing the dies. . 

The flowers are sorted and hung from S hooks from the BYGEL Rail.

You will need:

Hope you liked this :)
