Saturday Sketch #4 May

So for this Saturday Sketch I have used the new 'Timeless' papers. I also tipped the sketch once to the left. This was such a lovely layout to make, I take a great deal of pleasure in scrapping my friends as well as my family so this wedding shot of our close friends was a joy to work with! For me nothing screams Wedding quite like lace and ribbon ... and that wooden flourish is my favourite of all time! LOL. The flower is the only 'other' product on the page as it's a Manor House Bloom.
Thanks for looking... smiles from Kel.

The sketch this layout was based on:

Rockpool Cards

 Just a few cards made using the Rockpool collection. This is such a fun and bright set of papers and the new papers that have all these saying on them already make card making easy peasy!! As you can see I'm still having an affair with Droplets ...LOL .... they just work soooo well with this whole range!

Saturday Sketch #3 May

For this weeks sketch I have used the Magnolia Grove paper collection again, but this time I just focused in on all the soft blues and greens in the paper range. This photo was always going to be difficult to scrap with all those colours going on in there ( maybe I should have printed it in black and white?!!) so I focused on a soft page to highlight and frame the photo itself.
And here is the sketch it was all based on...

As you can see I flipped the image over for my sketch and also added an enormous amount of extra everything ... just the way I like my scrapbooking pages!!! LOL If you would like to give the sketch a try, THIS is the link to the Kaisercraft Blog where you can find the challenge ...Good Luck.

Rockpool Layout

Well I'm still plugging away with the new 'Rockpool' paper & embellishments collection ... this time I thought I would try something a tad different ... while the photo does have a water theme it's not actually another beach shot ... this was somewhat a of a challenge as this paper range REALLY is all about the beach and ocean ... but thanks to one of the great quotes that adorne the papers I was able to tie it all in nicely! 
Once again you can see I've got a little excited with the droplets ... this time I used a WHOLE PAKET of them on this one page ... what can I say... I have an obsessive personality!! LOL & smiles from Kel.

Saturday Sketch #2 May

Well here we are with another Saturday Sketch ... This time I've used the new 'Rockpool' collection from Kaisercraft, I adore all the earthy tones in this paper collection, they even tie in with all the bright beach photos I have of all my kids ... in fact they seem to compliment the colours rather than compete for attention ... I think that is my favourite thing about the Rockpool papers. I have again fallen in love with Droplets it seems, after forgetting that they existed for a couple of years (LOL)... droplets are the little blue epoxy drops you can see all over this page .... rhinestones and pearls might be perfect for girly pages, but droplets are just the thing for boy pages!!
This is also my favourite Saturday Sketch by Kaisercraft so far ... I love that there wasn't too much on the sketch which ment I had more scope for making things up myself!! 
And here is a copy of the sketch:

 As you can see for my layout I flipped this sketch once to the right.
If anyone else would like to try out this Sketch and enter the Saturday Sketch comp over on the Kaisercraft Blog, then just follow THIS link. Good Luck and have a great week.

Magnolia Grove Cards

Here are some cards made from the lovely new 'Magnolia Grove' paper collection... they were so simple to make by just using different back grounds from the paper pad and this wonder bit of paper...

As you can see all I had to do was cut up the 12x12 sheet to get 12 perfect little fronts to my cards ... a few bits and bobs (such as ribbon, flowers and bling) and the cards practically made themselves!! LOL
I love the 6 1/2" square paper pads, they just make cards soooo easy to pull together... and then there are the classic little finishing touches like the Martha Stuart Butterfly Punch ... when I die from too much scrapbooking I want that punch placed in the coffin beside me ... as I simple cannot part with it ...ever!

A Timeless male card

Kaisercraft have released a heap of new papers in their 'Timeless' collection that are so wel suited to heritage and male themes that it was a pleasure to knock up this card for my design team application. I often find it REALLY hard to come with stuff for the older male demographic, but these new papers are making this much easier! LOL

Saturday Sketch #1 May

How wonderful it was to play with the new Magnolia Grove paper collection... oh these papers are soooo divine, I just adore all the colours! I've also used some 'Shrinky Dinks' to create the little butterflies you can see in this LO, that stuff is so much fun to play with, but I almost lost the wee little butterflies 100 times before I got them finally stuck on the page!! LOL I also hailed back to my flower making days with this sketch, the three roses at the bottom were made from a 5 petal flower punch!
So below you can see the sketch that this page was based on ... lucky it's an interpretation eh! LOL
