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!!
