Kaiser New Release Projects.

Here are a couple of projects I have completed using the 2 new ranges in store from Kaisercraft and more to follow.
The first is an anniversary card I have made for my in-laws using the Paper Pad from Madam Boutique and the little vintage button is Prima in the Printery release.  I love the teal and gold colours in their range, it really suits shabby/vintage styles.  The theme throughout the range is vintage/sewing.  The ephemera pack includes lots of die cut doilies, tape measures, scissors and seamstress themed shapes.
I have cut out a doily shape using one of my favourite Cheery Lynn Doily Dies – English Tea Party.  The corners are punched using the Vintage Floral Martha Stewart Punch and delicate yellow trim is Webster’s.
The second project is a layout using the new Cock-a-doodle-doo release.
Whilst the main theme of the range is farm there are lots of cloud & tree shapes which would suit all kinds of outdoor themes.  I have used the die cut Paddock and cut a circle out of Baa!.  I have used a combination of the Stickers and Collectables in my embellishment clusters plus some of the rubons on the top right and bottom right edges.  The Alphas are also from the collection and of course the cute Dimensional Chipboard cow.  I have addedGlossy Accents to the clouds and some rain drops.

Candles - Pink Paislee Soiree

Hi there, here is another collection of papers I have been wanting to use for ages but just didn't quite know when or how.  I love the feminine bright colours and the glittered embellies were too easy to use!

Have used Pink Paislee Soiree papers and embellies and some sanded Coredinations Weathered Tin card in the centre of the layout.

It was my youngest's 4th Birthday today so hubby and I were up late making a Pirate Ship cake so have included a pic of this too - well done husband for a fantastic cake making effort once again!

My Boy - My Mind's Eye Lime Twist - Out of the Blue

Back again, things are a little quiet today so I had some time for another layout.  This time I couldn't resist the adorable papers and embellies from Lime Twist - Out of the Blue.  I have added Glossy Accents to the Balloon and Train die cuts.  TFL

Change of Career - Cosmo Cricket Upcycle

I have been eyeing off these papers for a while now but felt a bit challenged by bright colours particularly girly colours.  So decided to tackle them over the weekend and here is the result.

This a photo taken of me when I was in labour with our 1st son - early stages of course since I was smiling and of course I had an epidural in!  If only I knew just how much of a career change having a baby would be!  TFL !

Scrappy Weekend

Have been very productive this weekend.  Had a scrapping day at my house with some of my gal pals and scrapped up a storm (for me!).  Spent the time playing with techniques and papers which I have been eyeing off - so nice to have some me time!  TFL

Still fiddling with scraps . . .

I have the Kaiser Hunt & Gather paper pad so I have made a little card using a layering style I saw whilst blog surfing last night.   The doily is the Cheery Lynn French Pastry die.  I have some gal pal coming over for a scrappy day tomorrow whilst hubby has taken the little lads away for a trip to the farm - Bliss!

Playing with leftovers. . .

making some cards and passing the time.  I know I am not the most prolific crafter or blogger but every now and then I find a few minutes to play!  TFL( and any comments you leave!)
