Hello  - here is a project created for Artfull Crafts ....

Aw - isn't this just the cutest, cutest range .... Kaisercraft Peek A Boo  (even the name of the range is cute!) Sadly my children are all grown up and most of my baby photos are all scrapped - but I have managed to find a few to add to my exploding box and tell a little story of my gorgeous boy (who turns 24 in April)  ....

I used the papers - Kid, Precious, Cherub, and Bambino to decorate the box and each of the box's page. The Cherub paper is perfect for mini albums and pocket pages - as one can cut up the page for pockets and tags.

The bunny on the bottom left picture above was fussy cut from the Specialty Paper - Our baby boy (varnish) - it's quite an awesome paper this, as it quite thick like cardstock and allow you to complete details of your baby (the girl range has one too) - perfect for a 12 x 12 album.

I decorated the pages and the box using the collectables and stickers from the sticker sheet. 

Thanks for popping over to look - have a great week!

Hello Beautiful - Kaisercraft PS I Love you range

Today I have added a layout t the Artfull Crafts blog using the lovely "PS I Love You" range from Kaisercraft - how beautiful. soft and romantic this stunning range? I love the soft pastels in pinks and greys - and the lovely butterflies.

I have used some of the papers from the 6 x 6 paper pad and cut to various sizes and distressed these, and others I have punched the edges. The papers have then been layered randomly. I have masked two butterflies with gesso using some pink ink to give it the pink tinge and I have used the same paste mixture on the chipboard flourish. The chipboard has also been covered in glossy accents. I also used the same paste mixture on the wooden hearts. The layout is finished off with some of the collectables available in this gorgeous range.

Thanks for popping over and wishing you all a wonderful week!

Beautiful - White ... with 1 Creative Team January 2017

My first month on the creative team for White ... with 1 and we get the gorgeous "Princess Pink" to create with - along with the a mood board - so appropriate to my style. Pretty and flowery .... right up my alley :)
Click on the logo and it will take you along to the blog page. Come and play along :)

And here is my take on the challenge for the month:

First off, I stenciled some flowers with white gesso behind the top left and bottom right corner of the photos, and then stamped with pink ink using the Gabrielle Pollaco stamps and lightly coloured this in with chalk. I inked the chipboard frame and the title in pink and then applied glossy accents before adhering to my page.

I layered the flowers and above the chipboard frame and around the flowers. I pulled out some muslin and tucked these under the flowers. I also added some sequins and dribbled some pink ink on the background.
The butterfly is a punch out from a punch - using the same punch - pink cardstock and some patterned paper.

 Have a fabulous month - and please play along. I look forward to seeing those lovely creations!
