A set of masculine cards with Kaisercraft

Today, it is my turn to blog for Kaisercraft.

The first set of cards is created with #Me collection. I always find it difficult to create masculine cards, so I decided to create a set of masculine cards, using the small 6x6 paperpad and the collectables.

We remember moments

The first card is created using bazzill, and embossing parts of the bazzill. 

The quotes are from The Collectables.

You are you

The background is created using papers from the paperpad, spilling some Kaisermist and stamping with one of the text stamps from the collection.

The quotes are from the Collectables.

The jacket and bow tie

This is a simple folded card, using papers from the Paper Pad. The text is stamped with one of the stamps from the stamp set. The flower is from the Collectables.

Blessing in everything

This is a card, that is quite similar to one of the cards above. I have used Kaisermist and a text stamp from the stampset on the background.

The quotes are from the Collectables.

You are you

I have used gesso and Kaisermist on the background. The quotes are from the Collectables.

The difference between try and triumph

Kaisercraft's designteam has created layouts with #Me collection and the stickers that come with the collection. I created a layout with one of the photos from CHA. I have had CHA on my list of things to do for some years, and this year was my first time at CHA.

The photo was taken on the Saturday, just before CHA opened. I have used gesso on a cloth and gesso over a home made stencil to create the pattern on the background. The papers in the background has been added in layers with 3D foam tape and cardboard in between.

Planner inspiration

This blogpost is a design team post for Hobbykunst. You can read the post in Norwegian in Hobbykunst's blog.

It is January, and the beginning of a new year. This year, I have decided to start with a planner. This is one of the things that is the "big trend" in the scrapping community around the world. I have had a planner for many years, but it is a long time since I have used it in this way. 

My planner is going to be used, to organise my everyday life. This includes work, activities, design team responsibilities and DT posts. This is also the place where I write down ideas. I get a lot of inspiration from things around me. That could be colours, a photo, a saying or inspiration from other artists. I need to write this inspiration down, so I will remember it. This is why a planner is a fantastic tool. 

There is a large amount of planners to choose from. There is a difference in the material of the planner and colours. I have chosen a planner from Simple Stories. 

The metal binding is also different for the different brands. This is something to think about if you are getting new inserts for the planner. 

Several of the planners has days and months, but not dates. This makes it easier to use. If you like last years edition, you can use that, and just add the dates. You can get the dates as stickers, stamps or write the numbers in the diary yourself. 

Hobbykunst has several different planner solutions and thing that can be used for the planner. Stickers, PL cards, washi tape, "post it" notes and left overs. 

I use the SMASH pen for my planner. This has a thin, black pen and glue in one. 

What you need to start with a planner

Simple Stories: Aqua - Carpe Diem A5 PlannerHeidi Swapp: Large Memory Planner

The planners has a insert for each year. I changed the inserts in my planner. I wanted a page per day. To have enough space, I only have the inserts in the planner, for half a year at the time. Hobbykunst has a large selection of planners. 

Heidi Swapp: Memory Planner Stickers 6/Sheets

Me & My Big Ideas: Take Note Gold Foil - Create 365 StickersMe & My Big Ideas: Love This Neutral - Create 365 Stickers

Hobbykunst has a large selection of stickers. 

SMASH: Black Stick - pen & glue stick

Rayher: Blå blad - Washitape, 1/Pkg

Washi tape is super to use in the planner. It is quick and easy to decorate.  

Me & My Big Ideas: Important - Create 365 Post Stickers 10/P

Post it notes are always usefull in the planner. These post it notes are made to fit the 365 planner. I ahve made some extra holes in the side of mine, so it will fit inside my planner. Hobbykunst has a large selection of different post it notes. 

Planner inspiration from CHA

One of the trends this year, from all over the world, seems to be planners. These photos is just an inspiration to show some of the new products that is going to be for sale this spring.

I have added the butterflies on the top of the butterflies on the paper, to create a 3D effect.

Heartfelt creations at CHA

Heartfelt creations had a fantastic stand at CHA this year. I thought it was great because it showed a diverse set of creations. They also have someone on the design team with a cutting machine eg. a Silhouette (since a lot of the 3D creations are known cutting files), and I find it interesting to see what other people can create with a Silhouette.

They showed a fantastic set of  new products, cards, layouts and 3D creations.

The pirate ship and the violin is a cutting file I have seen at the SVG hut, the light house is a cutting file from SVG cuts. (I probably a bit revealing, that I know where the cutting files are from, but there you go. I always like to follow some of cutting file brands)

I always like to see nice paper dresses and albums. I really appreciate the work that go into creations like these.

There is s large amout of svg files for different tea and coffie pots. Lots of them are very similar. Svg cuts has a kit for a tea set which has a very similar to the tea pot shown here.

The cutting file and assembly instructions for the wine glass can be found at Needles'n knowledge. The wine bottle is an svg file from the set: New Years eve from SVG cuts
