Charlotte's Dream & Wood Flourishes

I couldn't resist doing one more layout with the beautiful Charlotte's Dream Paper collection ... this time I also used some of the lovely wood flourishes that Kaisercraft are becoming famous for, a bit of stitching, stamping and a few stickers and here we are. Oh how this photo makes me laugh ... how young I was once!! Another thing that makes me laugh with this layout is the distinct missing 'r' from the word formal ... this is sooooo typical of me, I charge straight into it and completely miss important bits of the process ... usually I fix everything before I photograph or blog, but this one I didn't want to ... this one felt more honestly like me! LOL
Cheers from Kel.

Saturday Sketch #4 April 2012

 Well for this Saturday Sketch I've gone right off the map... LOL ... I started with the basic layout of the sketch, but as I worked out my photos and the 'feel' of the page it kind of took off on a life for it's own and evolved as such! This is my 6th baby so I'm kind of over the 'water splash's' of my first few baby bath layouts, and also being the 4th girl I'm keen to use different colours in this album rather than the avalanche of pink that I traditionally have ... so I settled on Blue for bath time. The stamp I have used for the flourishes is an oldie but a goldie ... from the 'Rewind' collection ... I adore this flourish stamp!

And here is the original Sketch:

And below you will find a few close ups....

Saturday Sketch #3 April 2012

 Here is my latest Saturday Sketch entry for the Kaisercraft Blog comp. This time I have used the 'Party Animals' Collection ... how cute are those glitter animals from the paper pad!!! I found this a really difficult Sketch to follow as there was just so much involved in the original sketch, but I was quite happy with fun page I ended up with. And here is the original sketch...

And here are the close ups...

Fine & Sunny Easter Layout

Well this Easter Layout is just a couple of weeks late but I must confess I had a ball using the fun new 'Fine and Sunny' papers ... they are sooooo cute!! LOL I've also had a good go at the new ribbon roses that Kaisercraft have just released ... they are AWESOME as they add so much dimension to a page yet still sit quite flat in an album ( thats a dream embellishment for me!!)
I was sticking to a classic pyramid design with this page which was something a bit different for me, but I think I like it, so I'll have to give it another go in the future. I love Easter ... probably because I LOVE chocolate!!! LOL Smiles from Kel.

Fine & Sunny Cards

So I'm kicking of my introductions of the new 'Fine & Sunny' collection from Kaisercraft with a card collection. These papers are so bright and fun to play with ... I had no trouble at all nocking up a dozen cards in a few short hours ... it makes ALL the difference to play time when you are REALLY enjoying your toys!! LOL 
I've also done stitching on all these cards this time, I think I'm in love with the effect on everything. The cards are pretty simple besides that, just paper from the paper pad and dies from the coordinating collectables pack, dd to that a couple of ribbons and some liquid pearls and there you have it...
Have a great day folks. 
Smiles from Kel.

Charoltte's Dream Cards

A few cards made from the lovely Charlotte's Dream Collection ... I just adore all the gloss varnish papers in this collection  especially the paper pad that is packed full of them! Also for the first time ever I actually cracked out the sewing machine and used it on some cards ... sewing just looks on ANYTHING!! LOL

Saturday Sketch #2 April 2012

It's that time of the week again ... Kaisercraft Saturday Sketch!! This week I've used the 'Candy Lane' collection to put together this fun layout of my daughter Lilly enjoying a bit of a tea party with her sisters ... I know there was ment to be a bit white space on this sketch, but I'm allergic to white space so this is about as close to the original sketch as I was able to get LOL! And here is the original sketch...
