Sweet Nothings & Lilly...

I just couldn't resist one more Sweet Nothings LO!! This one is of Lilly's first day at school. with 6 kids I'm totally over the bright blue school layouts that I aways end up turning out ... so this time I decided to stick with the beloved shabby chic style and do the school photo anyway ... it was a bit risky, but I love the results .... they all look like they are standing in a garden ...which they were!!
This different stye of scrapbooking is exciting ... where you set the context with your page rather than just coordinate with your subject ... I'm keen to do more of this kind of scrapbooking... stay posted to see how it all works out!! Smiles from Kel.

Sweet Nothing Cards

A simple set of cards made using the 'Sweet Nothings' collection from Kaisercraft. To make these cards I used papers from the 6 1/2" paper pad and a bunch of die cuts from the collectable pack, beside this there are just a few flowers, bits of organza ribbon and small sayings stamps - all of which are also from Kasiercraft.

Sweet Nothings LO

Here is another LO made using the Sweet Nothings collection from Kaisercraft. I mostly used the die cut 'collectable' shapes to pull this lay out together and some gorgeous soft material flowers. The photo is one of my favourites from this time last year ... it's almost IMPOSSIBLE to get a good photo of the whole family with 8 people to try and get to all smile at the same time ... we almost there with this one ... and then Abby had to go and stick her finger up her nose just as the photo was taken!!! KIDS!

Sweet Nothings & Resin Flowers

Here is my first Layout done using the DIVINE new 'Sweet Nothings' Collection from Kaisercraft ... I can tell I'm going to sell LOTS of this collection ( mostly to myself) as it is truly beautiful and my new all time Favourite! The collection actually reminds me of some of the gorgeous Websters pages that are out there. And in the spirt of that I designed this layout in the very romantic 'shabby chic' style ... everything I have learnt about this style came from the very talented Gabrielle Pollacco, she is an amazing artist ... if you haven't seen her work yet you should head on over and have a look ... it's quite a treat! Here's the link...

Manor house & Kaisercraft Bird House

I made this Kaisercraft Bird house using Manor House Creations flowers and papers, as well as a few other Kaisercraft products. It's very cute and was a fair bit of fun to make ... sometimes it's nice to make a project just for the sheer joy of it!

Hunt & Gather + 13th Hour

With this layout I have combined elements from the '13th Hour'  collection with paper from the 'Hunt and Gather' collection. The wheel barrow and garden tools were painted with silver precious metal paint and the bird on the swing is actually a stamping up stamp and punch set. The photo is of my naughty children caught in the act of trying to haul the baby up to the top of the cubby house in a milk crate!!!? It's a wonder that child even made it to 2 being the youngest of 6 kids!!! LOL

Blue Bonjour Layout!

This is a beautiful photo taken over looking my front driveway, I LOVE the colours in the sunset ... the Bonjour paper collection was just perfect to show off the divine out door feel of this photo. The blue flowers are actually cut from satin material... for some reason this LO really speaks to me, I find myself staring at it for ages ... it has captured the feel of the day perfectly!

Chanteuse Layout

This LO was created using the 'Chanteuse' paper collection from Kaisercraft, there are also a few Prima flowers in there .... one of my new favourite things to use on a LO is lace and material flowers ... material flowers flatten so well for storage. I know a lot of people are designing with the lumpy and bumpy these days, but I must confess I'm still drawn to the practical side of embellishing, I really want my pages to 'fit' into my albums in the long run and these material flowers seem to be the perfect compromise!

Another 13th Hour LO

Another LO made using the versatile '13th Hour' collection ... it's hard to believe that this page and my last distinctly girl LO both originate from the same paper collection! This time I've capitalised on the browns and blacks in the paper range and has a ball with all those acetate clocks. I also used the 'wire' stamp that came with the range to create the 'leathery' look around the photo matt. They were the most perfect colours for creating this heritage LO.

13th Hour Layout

I made this LO last month and it is most lumpy and bumpy scrapbooking I've ever done ... This is OK though as I'm going to pop this page in a shadow frame and hang in the house ... the new 13th Hour paper collection is aimed at catching the Halloween theme, but it's so versatile you can really do anything with it ... the purple tones were just perfect for my girls!!

Bonjuor Lay Out

Made using the 'Bonjour' collection from kaisercraft, this layout was the most fun to make ... my beautiful daughter found out at school that there is a restraunt  located on one of the levels of the Eiffel Tower, after that she would come home every day and ask me to take her there for lunch or even dinner??? How precious!!! And how exciting it was to see these papers and know EXACTLY how I was going to scrap them!! This is the most beautiful paper collection Kaisercraft have released in quite a while :)
