Layered Christmas Card


Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. Today I am catching up on a blog post to share two cards that I made a little while ago for my friends (they already have their cards!) Now that I am on holidays and am starting to feel semi-normal, I have the energy to do more things that now and a bit of mojo to share things again!! I am wanting to use some things in my stash and I pulled out my beautiful Maja Design papers and a Tim Holtz colorize die that I ordered this year and created two cards.

I used a slimline card format as my card base and I created my own envelope using patterned paper. I used Kaisercraft cardstock to die cut the elements from the die. Having muted colours assisted in created the vintage look that I love.

For my second card, I used patterned paper from the collection to die cut the elements to create the scene. 

For both cards, I used a Tim Holtz seasons greeting die set to create my sentiment.

Supplies: Maja Design A Gift For You Collection, Tim Holtz Seasons Greetings 660058 and Colorize Holiday Village 664737 

For my friends in NSW take good care during these next few days. If we follow the health advice, this outbreak will be contained and we will be able to enjoy the festive season (hopefully!!)

To everyone else, take very good care.

Bon Joyage ~ Explorer Collection


Hello everyone! What a crazy time it has been. I have finished my school year and am now enjoying school holidays with a severe case of teacher tired. Hopefully it will pass and I will actually start to enjoy my break! Today I am sharing a layout which uses products and papers from Kaisercraft's December release called Voyage. I think this is something we are all craving...some travel to have a break or even to reconnect with people and loved ones physically. I think the digital connections we have learnt to use have been a blessing but it isn't the same as the real thing.

The photo I have chosen has tones which compliment the papers but also tell a story. The girl is looking forward and to me maybe searching. In 2021, we could be searching for new things, a fresh start, new adventures, hope. I added the calendar beside the photo to indicate this as well.

The collectables have so many great elements that can be used to compliment the page. I used them as some layers and used mounting foam to add dimension.

I also added a doily and some flowers to add a vintage feel to my layout.

Kaisercraft Products: P2949 Roam, P2948 Postmarks, P2952 Globetrotter, CT984 Explorer Collectables, Paper Blooms: F630 Iceberg and F628 Honey, CS802 Postmarks Texture Clear Stamp, IP757 Permanent Black Ink Pad

Christmas Greetings ~Maja Design


Hello everyone! I hope that you have had a greet weekend. Today I am sharing a Christmas card with you. I had bought a Tim Holtz die a while ago and have been wanting to use it and now that I had a tiny window of time, had the chance to create a card with it. It took a while and I love it.

I used the Snowglobe#2 die set. It has LOTS of tiny pieces. I also used Maja Design papers to create my vintage card.

To finish my card, I discovered a poinsettia die set in my stash that I forgot I had and made some white foamiran poinsettias. I also die cut some foliage and inked them up using distress inks.


Paper: Maja Design Vintage Frost Basics, Kaisercraft Cardstock Snow CS301, Chocolate CD109, Buttercup CD126, Blue Haze CD156, Olive CD117

Pretty Floral Slimline Cards


Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. Today I am sharing two slimline cards using papers and products from the gorgeous Flower Shoppe Collection by Kaisercraft. Slimline cards are very on trend at the moment and I wanted to have a try at creating this type of card.

In this card, I wanted to use lots of flowers and the butterflies. I stacked the flowers over some die cut cuts, plus some collectable pieces. I also used some fish tails, to take advantage of the length of this card design.

To create the base of my cards, I used a strong A4 cardstock. I trimmed it down to 8" x 9". On a scoreboard, with the 8" side facing the top, I scored it down the centre at 4", creating a 4" x 9" card.

For my second card, I created the same cardbase as above and utilised the pretty collectables to decorate my card.

To create a shabby chic look, I used some decorative dies as accents.

Vintage Pop and Twist Christmas Card


Hello everyone! I hope that You are well. I cannot believe how quickly the time has gone but I am excited to share with you an interactive Christmas card that looks impressive and is not difficult to make. 

I am using products from Kaisercraft's Christmas Miracle kit. This collection is traditional, vintage and gorgeous. That was my inspiration for my design choices but I wanted to do something a little bit different which is why I chose to make the pop and twist design.

I have a video tutorial for you if you would like to make this card.

Christmas Greetings


Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. Today I am so happy to share a Christmas card with you from a stunning collection called Whimsy Wishes. It has beautiful blue tones, accompanied by soft pastel illustrations featured in the collectables and also in the papers. When I have more time and I need to make more cards for my family and friends, I am coming back to this collection to create more!

I wanted to create a vintage styled card, so I selected some complimentary papers and a kraft base. I used neutral flowers, doilies and then I could select any greeting from the paper pad to complete my card.

Merry Christmas | Kaisercraft


Hello everyone! I hope that you have had a great week. Today I am sharing another Christmas card with you. This time it is with Kaisercraft's second Christmas release which is called Emerald Eve. This has a more traditional feel, which I do like in Christmas cards.



I love foliage on cards.  I added dimension by using layers of cardstock leaves to create fullness and texture. The gold swirl also contributes to the traditional feel that I also like as well.

Kaisercraft Christmas Kit ~ Native Noel


Hello everyone! I hope that you are safe and well. Today I am sharing my first Christmas card of the year which features papers and products from Kaisercraft's Native Noel Kit. Scrapbook kits are new to Kaisercraft and this Aussie themed Christmas collection is beautiful.

Here is a link to the original blog post.
