Christmas Envelope Mini Album Tutorial

Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a great week viewing the new collections from Kaisercraft. As you have seen, Kaisercraft have released some beautiful Christmas collections this year and the Mint Wishes Collection certainly doesn't disappoint. Today I am sharing an envelope mini album that I created using this collection. This album is a gift for a dear friend of mine who is a proud 'poppy.' He enjoys sharing pictures of his grandson from his phone, so my gift to him is this album. As he is a non crafter, the album is straight forward therefore it is easy to construct.

I have two videos to share with you. One is a walk through of the completed album and the second is the tutorial. So grab a cuppa and enjoy!

The Video Walk Through

The next video is the tutorial. This is a lengthy video as it was filmed in real time. To assist you in your viewing, you can fast forward to the following sections:
33m matting the covers
39min hinges
51min pages and inserts
57min matting pages and inserts
1hr 1min attaching pages to album
1hr 3 min creating the pocket and belly band

The format of the album was deliberate. I didn't want it to be too difficult for my friend, as some mini albums have a lot of interactions. However there are still lots of spaces for photos.
Mini books are great inserts into mini albums. You can journal and add small photos. The sentiments from the cut a part sheet are great for creating these.
The papers in the collection coordinate beautifully! You can mix and match so all of the components of your album effortlessly. By limiting the colour palet, it makes the designing the album less complicated and it makes the whole experience enjoyable.

I hope you'll try and create an envelope mini album with one of the Kaisercraft Collections.
With one pack of envelopes, you can make two mini albums. These are great as gifts and also Christmas is coming!
Happy crafting!

Christmas Village

Hello everyone! I have a Christmas village project to share with you today. It's part of the October blog challenge at Kaisercraft. The challenge is to create something using the following moodboard as your inspiration.

Immediately I thought of a winter village. I have several of the Tim Holtz village dies and soon began creating with them.

I found a traceable template on the internet to create the sleigh and the packages. They use papers from the Mint Wishes collection. The reindeers are created using a die.

To create your own reindeer, fold a piece of kraft cardstock in half and place your reindeer die over it lining up the head (don't worry about the antlers) to be just below the met which cuts the die. Run this through your machine and it should fold open. Cut your die as it was internded using your patterned paper. Glue your die cut onto your kraft base and decorate. Your reindeer should be able to stand up on its own.

I used some Kaisercraft dies in my design. I also altered one of the paper blooms by removing the centre and adding a flat back pearl.

Christmas Tags

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing some Christmas tages that I have created using Kaisercraft's Christmas Edition Collection. I have loved creating with both of the releases this month and I cannot say which one I prefer as they both are vintage and gorgeous!!! I have two styles of tages to share today...a bauble shaped tag and regular size 8 tag.

To embellish this tag, I used some of the wooden flourishes to create a mini scene. I painted them white and then inked them with a brown ink. I used elements from the Lantern Scene Decorative die set to complete the floral cluster. I also flicked some white mist from a spray bottle to create the illusion of snow and to also add interest to the background.

Christmas Wishes Tag

I enjoyed creating wthis tag. The collection has some beautiful pieces in the collectables pack which each collection offers. I also used the Decorative Die which was released as well.

I created a rosette using a Sizzix die and used a sentiment from the collectables to add stability and to also complete the bauble. I have used two bauble dies, layering each and distressing them using a brown ink.
