Product Showcase: Kaiser Craft Pennyroyale and Offshore lines with a GIVEAWAY!










{Reported by Ashley Harris}

G'day Mates! This was said in my best Australian accent, which isn't great by the way. Today we have Kaiser Craft that is based out of Australia. I have to say that it is a pure delight going to their booth at CHA just to listen to them talk. I know, crazy Yankee that I am. However, I have been a huge fan of their rhinestones from the moment I found them. Since then, I have found their paper lines and additional embellishments a delight!

So let's get started. I love their packaging. The embellishments, stamps, and rub ons come in these great resealable folders. They have hole punches on the side so that you can store them in a small binder. FABULOUS! What a great idea, especially for the stamps and rub ons. I really like the versatility their paper provides. I am a card maker by trade, and I love small tight patterns for that reason. However, they have big and bold patterns for layouts and other projects as well.

Lastly, I want to comment on their stamps and rub obs. I love them! The stamps have a real clean image and I get the same even image every time. Who doesn't love that?! The rubons are fabulous. They go on very well. Some rub ons are sticky and collect the debris that floats around your scrap room. These don't! To me that is a huge bonus!

What I liked:
Versatility of product.
Great rub ons that go on perfectly.
On the bottom of each patterned paper it lists the Bazzill cardstock matches!!

What I disliked:
The brads are pretty flimsy.

What I made:

Pennyroyale:




All products are Kaiser Craft except much appreciated stamp and ticket on layout is Tim Holtz.


Offshore:


All products Kaiser Craft except Thank You Very Much stamp.

Where and how much?
Product: Pennyroyale and Offshore Line
Manufacturer: Kaiser Craft
MSRP: $1.99-14.99

What do you think? Are you a fan of Kaiser? What are your likes or dislikes? Leave a comment by tomorrow at noon to be entered to win a great prize pack of the Pennyroyale line. Cheers!!

Thanks for the review!

Theresa said...

I love Kaisercraft products, and these have raised their always high level! I have to say that Pennyroyale is just gorgeous!

Kathy said...

Love the colors and gotta love the bling!

Vel said...

I like these lines but what I really like about Kaiser is that their bling is not over-the-top. Bling-lite, you might say. :)

I have been a fan of Kaiser for about a year now. Glad I encouraged my LSS to carry the line. It has been very popular.

lisa g. said...

I'm really not familiar with their products...that will have to change :) Would looove to win some!

I must say Kaiser Craft has become one of my favorite brands. I have found paper after paper of theirs that are just must haves. I love the bright but not TOO bright colors. They have so many designs that are versatile but, also carry themed papers as well.

Their papers are heavy weight but still very workable and overall I think they are one of the stars of the current scrapbook world.

Robin W. said...

I like what I see :) This is a great giveaway--thanks!!

debg said...

Please pick me! I love this collection!

Holly said...

You know, I have Kaiser Craft paper and I never noticed that it lists colors of Bazzill!! I gotta go check that out. Thanks!

Gabi said...

I've never used any of their papers, but I have envied them from afar. However I LOVE and own SOME of their rhinestones and other bling. I think the brads look adorable. I would use those puppies up!
Thanks gals for all you do! I love this BLOG :D

Thanks for the review, I love your projects. I love Kaisercraft gems and pearls, but I've never had a chance to play with their papers. Thanks for the giveaway!

Blessings, Janine said...

Your cards and layouts show off the Kaiser lines very well! Great review. I am a big fan of Kaiser. I like their simple designs and fun details in all their products. I do not prefer lots of white backgound designs, (but do love it in the Offshore line). The Pennyroyale line is gorgeous and I would LOVE to be the winner of that GREAT prize pack. Thanks for the chance! Cheers!!

I love Kaisercraft! I only wish their products were easier to find. My most favorite paper right now is the most beautiful shades of purple and blue with fairies. I've been hording them since they came out and waiting for a really special way to make them into a project. I don't want to waste a scrap they're so beautiful.
Love KaiserCraft :)

I haven't seen a lot of their products and have never used them, but I love what you show here and what you did with it :) Their stuff usually reminds me of the more subtle Basic Grey patterns, which is a GOOD thing. ~Erika

I loved Kaisercraft pearls for a long time, I didnt know they made stamps too, but I'll definitely be checking those out. And thanks for the review of the rub ons. I dont buy rub ons unless someone says they're good because I have found so many duds.

I love kaisercraft especially their off the page range.

I loved the cards you have made with the PennyRoayle paper, it has given me inspiration to make some of my own :)

Looking forward to future posts:)

Mary F said...

Have to say-I LOVE this company-I just wish more of my local stores carried more than the bling-I've seen that they have started with the stamps anad rub ons both of which I'm also addicted too-but I haven;t gotten to try them yet!

Shelley in Wyndham Vale Victoria Australia said...

I too love Kaiser craft products and would you believe I live about half an hours drive from their factory and outlet store and yet I have never been there! It's on my to do list with a million other things. I especially love their bling which is so reasonably priced and have even used it on my 6yo daughters shoes!!!

Vicki said...

Sadly I haven't seen any of their lines at the LSS. I think they are awesome. I love how they have so many pieces that match.
