Kaisercraft "Factory 42" Collection and Kit

Good morning, everyone. Last week, I mentioned these new papers from Kaiser Craft called "Factory 42". This is a great collection for any masculine layouts or cards that you would like to do. Here is a photo of the papers included in the collection.

I used some of the brown papers in this kit which I called "dad". I had some chipboard gears which I coloured with the Creative Expressions Chocolate Bronze Gilding Polish and included some Tim Holtz metal gears on the layout as well. The Polish is hard to see in the layout but it gives a nice copper finish to the chipboard.

As always, I love the border strips that Kaiser Craft uses and thought that this strip "A Father's Love..." was so appropriate for the layout.

Here is the kit:

Have a great week!

Snowman and Art Journal

Good Morning Everyone,

I want to share with you my next 2 classes that I will be teaching at our next Pop Up Shop. This will be on Friday August the 25th. My first project will be my Make N Take card, this is a shaker card. I used a die from Creative Expressions called Snowman Snow Globe. There is a snow globe die to go with this die but I didn't use it. The sentiment is new from KaiserCraft called Sentiments Traditional.
The background designer paper is also just new from Crate Paper called Falala.

The second project I will be teaching is for Lori's and mine Art Journaling class. I used acrylic paints, dylusion paints and a lot of stencils. With the stencils I used the Distress Oxide Inks. You can't see the verse very well in the picture but it says: Art is not a measure of skill but of passion. Love it. Please register here for space is limited. You will need to bring your brushes, craft mat, make up sponge and blending tools. 

Hope to see you this Friday. Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Good morning and Happy Monday! Today, I wanted to share with you a kit that I created using Kaisercraft's "Keepsake" Collection. I love the vintage look of the papers in this collection. I used some of the Word Strips from the bottom of the papers. Kaisercraft is so good at including these "words of wisdom" on their papers. I added some flowers from the Prima "Wild and Free" collection and a chipboard butterfly that I had in my stash. To give the butterfly a metallic finish, I covered it with Metallic Gilding Polish in Chocolate Bronze and added a couple of dots using Ranger's Enamel Accents. Have a look at the website to see the different colours of the Gilding Polish. They cover wood and chipboard and other surfaces, with a nice glittery finish. I can see more of these colours in my future!

I hope you like the kit. While I was at the Pop Up Store yesterday, I picked up some of Kaisercraft's new collection "Factory 42". You will love these papers if you need to create a masculine card or layout. Hopefully, I will have something ready for you next week.

Have a great week!

Watercolor Frames

Good Morning Everyone,

Want to share with you my card for this up coming Pop Up Shop this Friday August 18. This will be a Make-N-Take Card. I had a hard time coming up with a card using the Watercolor Frames stamp set from Altenew. I bought this stamp to use more with my Art Journaling but I thought the one stamp looked like a wreath. So I stamped the image 3 times with 3 distress oxide inks. I started with Vintage Photo then Fossilized Amber and then Faded Jeans. With the last 2 colours I just tapped in different areas I didn't cover the whole stamp. I stamped the sentiment with Faded Jeans. The background paper is from BoBunny called Serendipity Aviary. Love it. I then used some bling to put on my wreath because I didn't have the right colour of Nuvo Drops or Enamel Drops, go figure.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.
Hope to see you out on Aug 18.
