Kaisercraft Wildflower Cards

Kaisercraft Wildflower Card by Alicia McNamara

Hello Crafty Friends,

I'm not sure where the weeks are going! Each time there is a Kaisercraft Group Post, which is every week, I say I promise to be more organised and then all of a sudden it is the night before and I'm whipping up another crafty project in a hurry! Crafting with a little six month old is certainly a challenge! Any of you crafting with little ones reading this? How do you manage it?

Kaisercraft Pawfect Card ~ "A Dog is a Man's Best Friend"


Kaisercraft Pawfect Card by Alicia McNamara
Hello Crafty Friends,

Thank you for stopping by : )
Just a quick little card I'm sharing today using the new "Pawfect" Collection by Kaisercraft and the matching "Pet" Flourishes.


These little wooden flourishes are just awesome for adding the finishing touches to projects.  I chose a very simple design for my card (because I left it to the very last minute to make it).  This is a well-used sketch I fall back on in times of rushed card-making, the three panels behind the focus image.  

I wanted the wooden flourishes be the centrepiece of the card as that was what we were asked to feature.  I simply divided the top square into four parts with a sticker from the sticker sheet, added a sentiment in the middle and then the four flourishes in each corner.  I inked them in Dark Bark ink.

Kaisercraft Embossed Wildflower Cards

Kaisercraft Wildflower Embossed Cards by Alicia McNamara
Hi Crafty Friends,

I'm just popping in today to share these two very quick and easy cards I made using Kaisercraft's new Embossing Folder

  It can help you whip up some easy and pretty cards for the people in your life who are "amazing" and deserve a little "thank you".  

Kaisercraft Wildflower Embossed Cards by Alicia McNamara




I used paper from the Wildflower Paper Pad and sprayed it with Pink and Blackberry Kaiser Mists.  Then I wiped the paper over with a Baby Wipe.  The little white blossoms resist the mist and stand through as white.  These cards were super simple to make.  I used a silver Kaisercraft Doily and a couple of paper blooms.  I love a quick and easy card that can be whipped up when you need it.

Hope you like it too xx

Kaisercraft Wildflower Mini Album


Hello Blogging Friends,

 Today I am sharing a Mini Album I have made with the gorgeous new Kaisercraft Wildflower collection.

Kaisercraft Wildflower Mini Album by Alicia McNamara

It has been awhile since I have made a Mini Album Project and because this collection is so beautiful I felt inspired to create one!

I started with a Kaisercraft Chipboard Album and painted it black.

Then I began decorating with the gorgeous Wildflower papers.

I chose some photos to fill my album.  You could really use any photos with these papers.

I simply printed mine out in black and white to  coordinate them with the papers.

On some pages in my album I chose not use a photo, I used a quote instead.

 The photos I used are some of my two gorgeous nieces taken about seven years ago.

There are lots of lovely positive quotes to use in the Wildflower collection.
