Kaisercraft Base Coat IV Layout

Kaisercraft Base Coat Layout by Alicia McNamara

Hi Blogging Friends,

I'm sharing a Kaisercraft Layout today made with the new Basecoat IV Collection.  This is a photo of Nicky and I at the park.  Nicky has had two eye operations in his short little life and this was a few days after his second one so he is not wearing his glasses.  He doesn't have binocular vision which means his eyes work separately and therefore don't appear straight.  The second operation has made a big improvement.  He still needs his glasses, but now they look much straighter while he wears them.

The new Basecoat IV collection is a bonus collection this month.  Perfect for Masculine Layouts and Beyond the Page Projects.

Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day.

Kaisercraft Sage and Grace Card

Kaisercraft Sage and Grace Card by Alicia McNamara

Hello Crafty Friends,

You wouldn't believe this card took me about 15 minutes to make would you?  Well its true.  This was a last minute rush card that came together so well... isn't it nice when that happens.  I was running late on a Kaisercraft deadline and I was happy to make it quickly one night while the boys were in bed amongst my mess in the craft room ; )

The Sage and Grace collection is a real beauty...I love this style of collection by Kaisercraft...so feminine, pretty.  This card has a lot of dimension and will certainly need a big envelope.

Thanks for stopping by...

Kaisercraft High Tea Baby Mini Album with Video Tutorial

Kaisercraft High Tea Mini Album by Alicia McNamara

Hello Blogging Friends,

Today I am sharing a Baby Girl Mini Album with Video Tutorial.



I made this Album for a friend.  The little girl in the photos is only three months old so there are only photos for the first three months.  The album is designed to hold a photo for every month for the first 12 months.

Kaisercraft High Tea Mini Album by Alicia McNamara

The Album is made using Kaisercraft's new "High Tea" Collection.

For the pages without a photo I just used a blank square cut from PS485 Floral Wallpaper Embossed.

Kaisercraft Indigo Skies Beyond the Page with Process Video


Kaisercraft Indigo Skies Photo Frame by Alicia McNamara

Are you loving the new Kaisercraft Indigo Skies Collection as much as I am?  It is such a versatile collection that can be used to scrap the boys or the girls.  Today I am sharing a Photo Frame with photos of my nieces and nephew from a photo shoot they had taken a few years ago now.  This is a present for my sister for her birthday.  Because she has three children these photos were a perfect fit for the Three Panel Frame.


I started with a Beyond The Page 3 Piece Panel Frame by Kaisercraft and the beautiful Indigo Skies Collection.

I filmed a Process Video of how I made this frame.




Kaisercraft Indigo Skies Photo Frame by Alicia McNamara

I used one of Kaisercraft's new 6x6 Templates - Abstract Triangles to add some texture to the frame.



I also added some background stamping with my all time favourite stamp CS257 Background Script.



You can see in the video how I just ink up little bits of this stamp for the effect of a few words stamped here and there on the frame.

I tied the frame together with some Kaisercraft blue Organza Ribbon.

I fussy-cut some of the beautiful butterflies to decorate the frame.  I love butterflies as an embellishment.  I popped a little Kaisercraft Decorative Die vine (DD516) underneath the butterflies to fill in the gaps.

I added a little bit of navy sewing thread and a couple Kaisercraft white Mini Paper Blooms.
