Gatefold Album

This is a ‘take’ on the card that I made for my design team application. This time I added photos to make it into a small album that opens and stands impressively to display its beautiful photos. Below you will find one of the videos I made for my Design Team Application; it explains how to make this, go on, give it a go, it is super impressive and not that hard! So here is the album fully, opened!

Below, you can see the front is closed with a simple belly band adorned with beautiful Kaisercraft Blooms.

The first opening reveals some beautiful papers and photos. Notice that I have limited my embellishments, anything too bulky and the album will not close nicely!

The story continues with more beautiful photos as you turn the pages.

When the album is opened and standing proud ….. it looks so impressive!

I hope you want to make one of these gorgeous gatefold albums; to help you I have made a step by step video, click on the video link below and see how I made the card base. I have de…

Wedding Step Card

For this card, I simply rotated a traditional three step card that I made…kind of looks like half a wedding cake! The little water droplets on the gorgeous flowers were drops of glossy accents, left to dry overnight.

Mothers Day Card

Sharing a beautiful Mothers Day card using Kasiercrafts 'Always & Forever'  Collection. I just love the new  Rose stamp from Kasiercraft and used Copic Markers to colour it.

Cutting Tips: After colouring, get into the fiddly ‘inside’  areas and cut them out with a craft knife (T318).Once this is done rough cut around your image.Use your craft knife for the fine areas.Cut remainder with either fine scissors (T316) or your craft knife.If you find fussy cutting with a craft knife hard, invest in a glass cutting board, your knife glides rather than drags in the self healing mat!

2016/17 Kaisercraft Design Team Application

Hi fellow papercrafters!
I am super excited to have made the final round of the 2016/17 Kaisercraft Design Team. 
I have had the privilege of being on the team for the past two years and have loved creating with Kasiercraft Products and making so many new friends.  How could I not try again this year! We were sent a very generous amount of products to create ONEproject that shows our unique creative style. 
I chose to do a card...I guess you will not be surprised at that lol!

It is a BIG card .....

....... which means more areas to play with! 
I have made a video that shows you my creative thought process, (how I selected my project) and then I reveal my very exciting!

As you know, I always love to share, so I have made a second video that will show you how I made the card ....... that way, you get to play too! 

The video shows you clearly how to make the card foundation, so I thought I would tell you how I decorated it.
