Kaisercraft Hippy Girl

Australian company Kaisercraft has a proud history. Their aim is to inspire the craft world with their products by making these products innovative. So does it do what it says on the box? Well, the range that I am reviewing today is the Hippy Girl collection. Have we seen spots and lines and florals before? Of course we have. However, the collection as a whole presents them in fresh, bold colours with a richness that will enhance any layout or card.

In the paper pad there are 36 sheets of high quality (160gsm) in 19 different and varied designs from plain papers to florals, spots and lines. In addition to all that there are four pages of tags/borders and journaling spots. These are also pretty and varied. 6” paper packs from Kaisercraft retail for approximately £6.99 GB pounds and $8.99 US dollars. This is in line with the cost of similar products from other manufacturers. What is different about this product is that of those 36 sheets of patterned paper eight of them have glitter detail (four designs), which are gorgeous, and four of them have flocking (two designs).

In the Journal Tags pack from the same collection there are 24 tags in the same high quality paper. There are six designs and these are again varied and well matched with the papers. Half of them have a scalloped edge and the others straight edges with rounded corners.

Kaisercraft is a Worldwide brand as blogs from America, Australia and the UK are testament to. They even have stockists in Israel. The company have a website with projects and a gallery showcasing ideas for using their products and additional inspiration can be found on their blog These products are of very high standard and manufactured with a great finish. The glitter didn’t even come off on my fingers! In my opinion scrapbookers, card maker and other paper crafters would find these products good value for money and enjoy using them on their projects thanks to the vibrant colours and variety of patterns in the collection.

Part of what makes Kaisercraft proud is its commitment to people. The people that work for the company, the people who buy from the company and the community and world further afield. They have helped to raise almost $227, 160 for worthwhile causes both in Australia and further afield. It’s heart warming to read of the work that Kaisercrafts help to support in Thailand and if you have a moment I would urge you to have a read. http://www.kaisercraft.net/kaisercraft-info/charity/news.html
