Some Kaisercraft goodness
Hi my friends,
A warning... This is a looooong post...... Ive been busy creating lately, and wanted to share with you a few more Kaisercraft projects Ive done.
First is a layout I did of my Grandparents wedding, using my all time favorite collection 'Chanteuse', with a little 'Lush' thrown in. ( these 2 collections work perfectly together) The journalling reads " My Grandparents on their wedding day. My Grandpop was sent away to WW2 just days later, and was taken prisoner by the Japanese, and sent to Changi, where he was forced to worked on the Burmese railway. My Grandpaperents wouldnt see eachother for 4 years."
My Grandfather was a wonderful Man, who died way too young, from medical problems related to him being a pisoner of war. We are very proud of him for the sacrifices he made. The brown rose is handmade, as is the punched circle.
Next is one I did for a friend, using 'Up, up and away' and a little bit of 'Timeless' for the background. I totally love these new rub on sentiments from Kaisercraft, they make finding just the right words sooo easy.
Next, Ive made a photo frame, with a gorgeous photo of my 5 kids. Ive used Kaisercrafts new 'ornate frame' and distressed it using crackle paint, ink and some sandpaper, to reveal some of the wood underneath. Ive also used some of the gorgeous Kaisercraft wooden flourishes to decorate the frame.
And another layout, this time Ive used 'Class of 87'. This is such a bright, fun range, which is perfect for all your school layouts, but, as Ive shown, can be used for other layouts as well. I wanted to remember a funny little thing my DS used to say a couple of years ago. He used to get mixed up with 'almost finished' and 'nearly finished' and used to say 'nearlymost siffing' sooo cute!!
Next up is something Im really quite proud of ;) Recently Kaisercraft bought out a range of fabulous paper blooms. I love Prima flower vines, and one day, started wondering how I could encorperate these gorgeous vines into my Kaisercraft Design team layouts. I came up with these! My very own Kaisercraft flower vines !! he he, told you Iwas clever...
Ive gone a bit mad on gift tags just lately. This one I made today, using the newest realease from Kaisercraft called 'Lullaby'.
The next 2 double layouts are ones I did for 'Australian scrapbook ideas' magazine a little while back. Ive used the 'homemade' collection and lots of distressing for both. All the flowers on these layouts are handmade.
