Hi, read-on to see the projects I created for Kaisercraft in January.
Hello and welcome to the Kaisercraft blog. Leonie Neal-Dawson here with you today and by the time this post goes live I’ll be somewhere in central Victoria camping with my family. Fun! It’s Australia Day today so may I wish a Happy Day to those that observe it, and hope you are finding a way to relax and enjoy the day with family and friends. I have loads to share with you today including an off the page item, several scrapbook pages and a process video sharing some different techniques with our fabulous Kaisermists.
First up is this ‘#Me’ collection and an album I created. My daughter had her 11th birthday a week ago and I made this album as a gift for her. I thought she could use it as a diary/journal, or a place to keep her favourite quotes ( I know she likes to collect those), perhaps to draw or doodle in- well for anything she wants really, the possibilities are limitless.
I used the plain Journal pages that come in the Kaisercraft Journal Planner. They are the same size as the ‘ME’ album cover with holes punched already so no trimming or hole punching involved!
Because this was a gift to my daughter as a Journal/diary I kept most of the pages blank and just decorated the first 10 or so pages with quotes, stamps and stickers from the #Me paper collection. The intention being that she would follow on from where I had left off with her own additions to the Journal in whatever form she desired. Happily, since I gave her the Journal she has been cutting and pasting and adding some drawings of her own, so I think this present was a success!
Happy Birthday Maggie!

My next page features the #Me collection and especially the sticker sheet from that collection. I teamed it up with some of Kaisercrafts paper doilies and created a page celebrating my goals – setting and achieving them. The #Me collection is perfect for this type of page with its strong focus on life affirming quotes and achieving your goals or telling your story.
I added some texture to the background with the Kaisercraft ‘Stars’ Template and texture paste. Then some splashes of colour with Kaisermists.

Well it is called the #Me collection and here is another page about me. Some selfies I took recently. I think after this I will have fulfilled my quota of pages and photos of myself for a little while!
Don’t the glitter tapes look so pretty with these colours. Adds just a perfect touch of shimmer and shine.

The true love collection is so pretty with some lovely florals. My attention was caught by this script paper in black and white. I really like these type of black and white patterned papers. There’s lots of room to add your own mark on them in the form of any colour you wish really. I chose some of our pink Kaisermists and created an ombre style background.

You can watch a process video to see how I put together the background on the Love page. These also a short clip on the video showing how I painted the background on the ‘Live Laugh Love’ page below. Watch and enjoy.
Another black and white patterned paper that grabbed my attention was this one called Achievement from the #Me collection. I just adore all those fun hand drawn doodles and had to add lots of different colours to it. I chose black and white papers from the #Me collection to layer under my photo which had a fair bit of colour on it like the background I had created. The black and white layering and embellishing helped separate the photo from the colourful background so that it wasn’t ‘lost’ on the the page. You can see how I painted the background with Kaisermists in the video above.

Thanks so much for stopping by the Kaisercraft blog today. I hope you’ve been inspired you to do something a little different today with our Kaisermists. Do you have any other fun techniques or ways to use spray inks on your pages? If you do get creative with some Kaisermists why not share it with us on our Facebook page.
Happy Crafting, Leonie Neal-Dawson.
