Craft studio tour

Today, the design team are showing our craft studio's in Kaisercraft's blog.  I have never really shown my studio before, except one wall with my Kaisercraft storage. So this is were I create.

The room is a bright and light room, with three windows along one wall. I live almost in the forest, so we have a lot of wildlife in the garden outside the windows.

This photo was taken last winter, from my craft studio. This is deer family, who frequently visits us.

I have mounted cupboards from IKEA on the walls. The studio also has a large table, that can be expanded.  

All my Kaisercraft designteam dies, stencils and embellishments are mounted on the wall easy access. I use these all the time, so it is important for me to have them easy accessible.

The cubbords are filled with different things, and I only showing some of them here. Here I have got beads, buttons and embellishments, sorted after type, size and colour.

I also use a lot of mists, paint, embossing powder and glitter. 

I use a lot of rust pastes and mediums, and love the colour and texture they give

Some acrylic paints and glue, I get in larger quantities. 

I use a lot of Kaisermists and 13art's mists. I choose to have these on the bench and not in the cupboard for practical reasons.

I have tried to use all the storage spaces I can in the studio. Here is a few of the art pieces I have got from friends - a mixed media coffin from Aida Domisiewicz (13arts),  A card an a fantastic minialbum by Anne Elisabeth Rostad and a mixed media tin from Laurie Moore

I have also got a few book shelves in my studio, together with home made shelves for paper and cardstock.

This is a chest of drawers from IKEA, storing wooden chipboard and bling....

Zutter wires and the most used punches.

Older Kaisercraft collections with papers, stamps and collectables are stored, but frequently used.

Silhouette, Bigshot and Zutter, stored where they are used. 

Storage of dies for the Big shot, foil sheets, knives for the Silhouette and vinyl. I don't have a large storage of vinyl, since I don't use it so much. 

On one wall, I have got PAX wardrobes from IKEA. These are filled with drawers and craft materials. I am only showing a few drawers here.

Lace storage.

Quilt material storage. The materials are sorted after colour.

Mixed media bits and bobs. This is metal gears, parts from old computers, typewriters and sewing machines.

I also have some of my art on display in the studio.


Different 3D art and albums.

Happy crafting :)

A masculine clock shaker card

I have created a shaker card with Kaisercraft's  Barber shoppe collection.

This card is created with Kaisercraft's clock die, and I have added beads and gears inside the clock. To create room for the shaker box, the inside og the clock was cut out.

I often decorate the cards clean and simple inside. Here, the card has got panels, wooden cogs and some of the collectables.

The back of the card has been decorated with panels and a "made by stamp".

The canvas has been covered with paper and sealed with multimedium. Then I have added paper squares, small tiles, metal bits and beads. Then, I have covered everything with black paint and drypainted it. You can find the video tutorial at the end of the post.

A Christmas pop up panel card

The Christmas crafting season has started, and so has the creation of Christmas cards. This pop up panel card, is something I have seen online a while ago, and I wanted to have a go at it.

The Christmas Wishes collection from Kaisercraft, is a fantastic collection with soft pastel colours, and gold. It is fantastic for Christmas projects.

For the pop up panel card, the inside fold open as you open the card. This shows better in the short film added to the end of the blog post.

The ornaments are from the Collectables and thetext at the bottom is from the Sticker sheet.

I always decorate the back of my cards simply, with a penel and my my name.
