Kaisercraft DT - Teddy Bears Picnic

Hello again everyone, and happy Friday....the weekend is almost here - yay!
I am back today to share my creations using Kaisercraft's 3rd release for
this month -Teddy Bears Picnic....and I have to say it is a "beary" cute one!
As always, the collection comes with a variety of papers, collectables, stickers, paper pad & a stamp set.  Most of the papers have one side that is not bear related & could be used for any type of layout...... I have created 2 layouts, 1 that is Teddy Bear related & 1 that's not.
First up....
"Teddy Love"
I've used the gorgeous "Furry" paper for my background...just love the colours & design of this paper ..... & the white dots have a fairly light text on them, which looks great. 

I have cut a rosette flower using a strip of paper from the "Parade" paper & added a paper bloom, punched butterflies & some collectables pieces to form my cluster :)

The collectables pack has quite a few super cute teddy bears in it, plus there's also a few words, such as the words Teddy & Love that I've used for my title.
The cute little banner stickers are from the sticker sheet....and I've attached them in under a few strips of PP.

The photo is one of my little bear collection <3

Other: Butterfly, Rosette & Border punches
Next up is a non teddy bear layout :)
"Cherish the little moments"

The patchwork looking floral squares are cut from the gorgeous "Cuddles" paper & then mounted onto slightly bigger squares cut from the "patch work" paper.  This is such a pretty patterned paper & I wanted to try to showcase it a bit differently.....against the burgundy colour of the "Teddy" paper, it makes them really stand out, which is what I was aiming to achieve :) 

Another cluster of blooms, stickers, collectables....and a Flair button

The hearts are from both the Collectables pack & Sticker sheet....and I've mounted them up on some KC foam dots to add a bit of height to them.

More stickers & some strip journaling :)

Other: Flair Button, Brown Distress Ink
Next up is a couple of cute little gift bags....perfect for both male or female

I've simply added some of the cute bears & the trolley from the Collectables pack, and more heart stickers onto a few layers of paper.  This is such a quick & easy idea to turn a plain gift bag into something a little more personal :)

with a few strips of paper at the top, with a bunch of collectables pieces pinned to the bag with a brad.

I also added a bit of a textured background using modelling paste & Kaisercraft stencil - Quarters

Another bag with basically the same layout as the previous one, just using
different collectables pieces

Kaisercraft DT - Yuletide

Hi again fellow scrappers
As promised, I am back again to share some more of my Kaisercraft DT work for September.
This time using the gorgeous "Yuletide" Christmas collection.
I really love the colours & patterns in this colletion and it would have to be one of my fav Christmas collections :)  It has a bit of a vintage feel to it with traditional Christmas colours & patterns....and if you remember my Kaisercraft finalist post from back in June..., you might remember that this is one of the collections that I got to play with back then too <3
First up is a layout
"Cheeky Santa"

I've used a variety of papers in red, green & gold, and embellished with pieces from the fab Collectables pack & sticker sheet.

I've also embellished using a few of my Die's, both the leaves.... & the flower that is sitting under the Red KC Paper Bloom - all cut from papers in this collection.

Here is another shot from a different angle.

Some layered up collectables, stickers & scrap pieces of pp...... and some
green alpha stickers for the title.

Another diecut flower using the "Garland" paper that has a gorgeous news print on it.

More stickers & Collectables - there are soooo many pieces in each of these, which makes them such great value & there's always something to suit just about everyone,
no matter what your style of scrapping is :)

Pics are of my hubby wearing a santa hat & being rather cheeky!

"Believe in the Magic of Christmas"

For this layout I've cut out a few of the squares on the Miracle paper & arranged them in a patchwork effect across the page.... and I have added a bit of stamping to the background using the Numbers stamp with KC white ink.

I've used some paper blooms, stickers & collectables pieces to create a cluster...I just
love these pieces!

And more stickers, collectables & strip pieces of pp

Pic is of one of our fav santa decorations that comes out each year to decorate our home :)

Next I have decorated a few plain white candles...very quick & easy & is a great idea for some cheap christmas decorating for the home.
 "Christmas Candles"

Just a few strips of paper - some with punched edges & others left plain....with some added collectables & some twine....very quick & easy :)

And lastly....a couple of Christmas cards...

Both are fairly basic, simple cards, yet still look quite unique.
These type of cards are very achievable for any skill level of paper crafter.

The first one is just a few layers of patterned paper, with a diecut .... finished off with some twine tied in a bow & one of the Yuletide clear stamps stamped on the top plain piece of paper.

The 2nd one is using more squares cut from the Miracle paper, with a collectables diecut in the centre, and again, one of the Yuletide clear stamps at the bottom with Kaisercraft white ink.

Kaisercraft DT - Basecoat Christmas

 Hi there everyone :)
This week I will be up on the Kaisercraft blog with 3 of this month's new collections.

The first collection that was featured today, is Basecoat Christmas!
If you're like the rest of the population, and loved all 3 previous Kaisercraft Basecoat collections....this one will be no different!  It is just as fabulous as all the previous Basecoat releases, and I'm sure you will love it as much as the others :)
My first project is a layout....
"I believe in Santa Claus"
I've used the reverse side of the gorgeous "Flora" paper for my background with a touch of mixed media in under my layers of paper strips.  How cool is the red timber decking on this paper?! 
I absolutely love it!

I've created a cluster with a few different coloured paper blooms...and pieces from the Collectables pack.  There's also some strips of Kaisercraft lace in amongst the paper strips as well.

The stencil work is using the new release template - Moroccon Lattice & the stamping is a new release stamp - Morocco.  Love them both!

Here you can see the lace a bit well as some punched border strips, border sticker from the sticker sheet, and also some cut off strips from various papers.

More collectables pieces...and a close up shot of the main area of the page....which has some of the Captured Moments 3x4 cards layered in under the photo.
Pic is of my kids some 20 years ago!!  yikes...makes me feel old!

Next up is another layout...
"Christmas Eve"

I've kept the background nice & clean with this one....using the Christmas Bells paper - I love the old weathered look & feel to the timbers on this paper <3
And.....Oh how I love the christmas decorations at the top of the page...they look so real & 3D!!
I have, however, added a bit of stencil work on the green piece under the photo...using the new Stars template.

Another cluster of Paper Blooms, stickers & Collectables pieces

I've added a strip of cream lace along the bottom of the papers for some added texture....and some stamping using the Basecoat Christmas clear stamps.  Oh, and there's also some of the new release washi tape in there too....Chevron - Mint <3

I've also used one of the Basecoat Christmas - Captured Moments 3x4 cards at the side of the photo.
Pic is of my DS a few Christmas' ago!  Well, more than a few....more like 6! LOL

October Afternoon "Public Library" for All About Scrapbooks / Scrap The Girls Sept Challenge

Hi everyone....happy weekend to you all :)

I am back to share another October Afternoon - Public Library layout for All About Scrapbooks!
As I mentioned last week, I planned to try to get some layouts from this collection that were not in any way related to the collection name...Library - books - school - reading etc etc

So here is a fun layout of my DD & a friend at a wedding....taking selfies & being a tad silly :)

My layout is based on the September sketch at Scrap The Girls 
(Gosh, I haven't played along at STG in like...forever! - Huge thanks to Fiona Johnstone for inspiring me to play along :) ) 

"Funny Faces"

oh I just love that spotty background paper!  It is actually the reverse side of the same paper that I used for the background on last weeks "Longroom" layout...I just had to have 2 of them! lol
And that is something that I seem to do a LOT - use my fav papers as my background - maybe it's because I can't bear to cut it up?!?!

Here is this months STG sketch...

And a few close ups....

Cluster of Green Tara & Petaloo flowers....with a gorgeous 2Crafty flourish swirl <3

Love the cute little 2Crafty Doily!

For full details on techniques & products used....pop on over to the AAS blog HERE

Thanks so much for dropping by....I hope you have been inspired by this fabulous collection!
