Kaisercraft Design Team 2015 Entry

Time flies when your having fun, especially when it is creative fun.  I can hardly believe that it has been nearly a year since I applied to be on the 2014 Kaisercraft Design Team, when I was lucky enough to get through to the second round.

DT_blog_heading

So here I am again with my 2015 Design Team application post and some of my favourite recent Kaisercraft projects.  I have to admit that it was really difficult to narrow down the list of favourites so I have included a little gallery at the end of this post showcasing some additional favourites.

I don’t just love the fact that Kaisercraft Collections are perfectly co-ordinated, there are also the most wonderful dies, templates, embellishments and stamps in the range too.  I am particularly fond of mixing products from different Collections together, as I have done on my Altered Journal project.

Therefore my first project to share is an Altered Journal which I am going to use for my Morning Pages.  Those of you who have read “The Artist Way” by Julia Cameron will know what I mean, and for the rest of you these pages are filled with a spill of thoughts and feelings that help with the creative process – and self love.  I felt that I needed a pretty place to keep them and this journal just needed a facelift, so a project just for me was born.

My second creation is a layout that I truly love using the fabulous XO Collection.  I really enjoyed creating this layout, especially since it uses a lot of white space and just a touch of Mixed Media allowing my family in the photograph to shine.  This layout also inspired a class I taught in January, which is pictured at the end of this post.

My final project is a set of cards created using the Off The Wall Collection, which is one of my favourites from this past year.  The cards have a real Grungy Mixed Media feel, and I think they would be perfect for any teenage boys Birthday.

Well that is it for a very long post that helped to remind me how varied my style really is, and just how much I love to create – whether it is a scrapbook layout, a card, a set of invitations/placecards, a mixed media canvas or an altered something-or-rather.

Happy Creating and have a wonderful day

Altered Paintbrush

Altered Paintbrush by Alicia Redshaw

A little while ago I liked an Altered Paintbrush Swap on Facebook, and somehow I also signed-up for it too.  So to cut a long story short I made my Altered Paintbrush, sent it away and then forgot all about it – moving along to last week I thought I had better check if it had arrived safely and it did….so now I am here to share some images of my Altered Paintbrush.  I love how it turned out and will definitely be making one for my new Studio (when I get the time of course).Altered Paintbrush by Alicia Redshaw Altered Paintbrush by Alicia Redshaw Altered Paintbrush by Alicia Redshaw Altered Paintbrush by Alicia Redshaw

Kaisercraft Design Team 2014 Entry

This evening I wanted to share with you all a great opportunity (or challenge), that I thought I’d give a go this year.  It is the one and only Design Team Call for Kaisercraft here in Australia.  I have been working on this post for a little while now, trying to keep it at a reasonable length – what to include and what not to include.  I am very happy with so many of my projects created with Kaiser products, that it is a very hard call.  I am especially happy with some of my recent classes using Kaiser products, so they obviously made the cut.

I am going to start with two of my most recent Cardmaking Classes, one of which isn’t until next week.  Both are using Kaiser products and are sets of three cards – in completely different styles – and yes I couldn’t decide which one to leave out so here they both are.

Next I have two of my most recent Scrapbooking Classes (both made with Kaiser products and once again too hard to choose between), and both with a Mixed Media twist.  You can view posts for each with more images here and here.

Now I have a couple of other layouts (and a card) that I am very happy with, all also using Kaiser products.  {The images link to their original posts with more images and details}

My Man by Alicia Redshaw Grows by Alicia Redshaw

And now last but definitely not least is an Off the Page project that I have completed this week, and am very proud to share.  I embellished/altered this book for a very special Bride-to-be to use as her Wedding Guestbook.  I feel very honored to have been asked to create this book.  It isn’t 100% Kaiser, however the majority of it is – especially the papers and resin flowers which set the mood and decided the colour scheme direction.  I will post additional images and a materials list for this book over the weekend.

Well that is it for my Application Post and I look forward to having a hunt about the web in the coming days to see what everyone else has shared for this great Design Team Call.

Copic Story Writing Journal

I created this journal last year and just never got around to sharing it with you all.  The stamp and dies are from La-La Land and the patterned papers are from a Glitz Uncharted Waters paper pad.  I bound the journal using my Cinch, made the covers with chipboard and the inside pages with butchered Botany Books.

A Candle of Hope & Love

I created this lovely candle for Naomi-Jon’s best friends Confirmation Ceremony this past Sunday.  It was a very early start after a very late night, and sooo worth every moment to be a part of such a momentous and beautiful occasion. 

For this particular Candle I have used Prima flowers and Leaves, along with a couple of my favourite stamps.

Confirmation Candle

I love creating these candles and making each one unique, just like the person it is for.
