Hummingbird LO

The Hummingbird paper collection from Kaisercraft is a difficult one to work with for me ... the colours are so bold and strong that found I really had to soften it as I went to get some balance in my layouts... but in the end I was really happy with how this page in particular came together ... it wasn't anything too difficult, but it is delishiously tactile which I adore!! The added paper booms give the page real height and the wood flourish bird cage reflects this beautifully. I'll pop this layout in a shadow box to go in my house somewhere as even I can't fit a page this lumpy and bumpy in my albums!! LOL

Hummingbird Cards

Some cards made using the 'Hummingbird' paper collection. This is a very bright and beautiful collection, although it does have it's subtle moments, and it can certainly boast a lot of versatility. The wonderful collectable die cuts from this range also make embellishing any thing from cards to pages a breeze!

Lil' Primrose Cards

A few cards made using the 'lil' Primrose' collection ... I LOVED making these cards the little girls are the cutest embellishments ever!! The whole collection is quite pastel so I found using a strong background colour like the burgundy was really uplifting to the cards. You honestly can't go wrong with this collection ... all you need to is to add lace ribbons and flowers and you have a winner!!

Lil' Primrose Layout

Another Layout using the Lil' Primrose collection ... this is such a beautiful and soft paper range, I couldn't resist doing this photo of Daisy with my Father ... such a topic needs a soft touch!! 
I mostly used a lot of elements from the sticker sheet on this layout so it was a simple and quick layout to pull together. I must say I'm surprised at how good the title letters look ... when I first saw them i thought them just awful ( they reminded me of barbed wire!!), but now that I have seen them used, I love them ...some times you just have to get your hands on a product to truly appreciate it!! LOL

Lil' Primrose

Introducing the 'Lil' Primrose' paper collection from kaisercraft... this is such a gorgeous range with the cutest little girls scattered throughout it ... I'm loving using it!! This is also the first ever baby photo of myself that I have ever scrapped, which was really wired as I look just like my own kids ...or at least they look just like me!!?? I've also added a pair of the fabulous iron gates from the Kaisercraft wood flourish collection, I just adore all these wood flourishes :)

Sweet Nothings Memo Block

This is a VERY practical little BTP project from kaisercraft, I've decorated the memo holder you see here with collectable die cuts and stickers from the 'Sweet Nothings' collection. It's finished off with a few resin flowers and silver rhinestones. It was a very simple and easy project to knock together and these memo blocks make the perfect gifts!!

BTP with On The Move

This is a film strip photo frame from the Kaisercraft BTP collection and here I've made it up for my husband for his 40th birthday ... he and his dad just love anything to do with bicycles ... the older the better ... mind you I feel the same way about him!!! LOL
It is embellished with collectable dies cuts from the 'On the Move' collection and a Pennyfarthing wood flourish.

On The Move Layout

FINALLY a boyish layout ... Made using the 'On the Move' paper collection from kaisercraft. What a lot of fun this was to make ...I simply LOVE all those flying banners and the new die cut collectables make embellishments sooooo easy ( no more cutting!!). I'm sure I'll be using this collection more in the future as it suits my husband perfectly :) LOL
 I've nothing much else to say about this LO .. very easy to do with this collection and very fun to boot! :) Smiles from Kel.

On the move cards

Three groovy cards were made using the 'On the Move' paper collection from Kaisercraft ... they were all VERY simple and quick to create. This is such a fantastic collection for the men in your life, I have already given one away to my father-in-law!! This is one of those collections that I didn't like at all in the catalogue, but has turned out to be awesome in real life ... because of this my new years resolution is to reserve judgement on any collection until I have seen it for myself!! Smiles from Kel.
