New Releases for JUNE 2013

 Whats one day early right? 

Well I certainly couldn't wait one more day to show off these fabulous new collections from Kaisercraft... all due on the shelves as of the 1st of June.

Dont ask me how June got here so quickly.... I'm afraid I must have blinked and missed half this year already!?? LOL

Anyway ... here they are ... the one above is the BLAST OFF collection ... it's Off-the-charts cute! Wait until you see some of the aliens in the collectables pack of this range! Perfect for Boys of all ages.

This one below is the TRUE ROMANCE collection. It is soooo sweet ... I'm not too sure about the romance side of things but so far I'm loving it for my little girls with the whole collection packed full of pretty pink roses, birds and butterflies!

And last but not least we have the MISS EMPIRE collection. This is a vintage/heritage range that will have something for everyone in it. I have already tried it out with some of my mum and dads old photos and it's just perfect with the colours blending seamlessly!

So there you have them folks .... the new collections I'll be sporting about this blog for the next month!

Now which one will I feature first? 

I love the burden of such decisions! LOL

Have an awesome day....
Cheers from Kel.

Saturday Sketch #4 May 2013

 Once again this week for the Saturday Sketch I have used the On This Day Collection
I just love it and can't seem to put it down! LOL

For todays sketch I decided to go with a beachy photo so I dragged out my old 'Off Shore' stamp set... who remembers that one? 

It was one of the first collections that Kaisercraft started releasing in actual collections .... it is still one of my favourites to this day! Every time I need to make something that resembles the beach, out comes this particular wave stamp... nothing says surf to me more than this stamp!

The shell at the bottom is a more recent stamp from the 'Rockpool Collection'. The rest of the page is a lot of ink and scribble!!

It kind of resembles the Sketch ... I was following it, but got quite carried away.... It does look like it if you turn the sketch upside down and squint your eyes!? LOL

So here is the original Sketch from Kaisercraft...

Thanks for stopping by for a look.
Cheers from Kel.

Porcelain Rose Cards

Hi all.... I'm back today with just a couple of cards from the Porcelain Rose Collection.

I'm still bumping along with my 'Love' theme here as I really need more cards for weddings/engagement etc as well as Romantic ones. 
Birthday ones come easy, but this kind are bit less common!

Anyway, as always I kept them quite simple but I'm still really enjoying working with these papers. I love all the soft pinks, and the collectables pack have  heaps of frames and journaling squares in it that are perfect for layering things up like on the card below.

Layering has certainly come into it's own element in the last few years and I must confess I could probably do with some more instruction on the technique myself.

The Brisbane Paper Craft Expo is coming up soon, I might book myself into a class or two there to gain some more experience in this area! LOL

Have a great day, Smiles from Kel.

Saturday Sketch #3 May 2013

For this weeks Sketch I've used the On This Day Collection.

This was quite a simple sketch and I couldn't help tizzing it up a bit! LOL

After doing this layout I now firmly believe I'm completely addicted to frames .. I was looking back over all my layouts for the year and sure enough they all have a frame or boarder around the edge of the page ... as it turns out I just can't live without a page frame! I've decided this is just going to have to be my thing now as I love pages done this way.

Anyway... theres not a lot of product on this page at all so it was a nice quick one to pull together.

I actually really like sketches like this that we can dress up ourselves... simple bases with unlimited potential! LOL

Thanks for stopping by for a look.
Cheers from Kelly-ann

On This Day Cards

Just popping in Quickly today to share a couple of cards I've made using the On This Day Collection.

There's nothing fancy going on here folks, just quick easy cards!

I used papers from the paper pad and the coordinating collectable die cut pack... a few Rhinestones and pearls latter and there you have it.

I love the arty side of scrapbooking, but sometime you just have to get stuff done! LOL

Thanks for stopping by for a look.
Cheers from Kel.

Summer Breeze Layout

Continuing on with my Summer Breeze Collection adventure today I'm sharing a simple layout I made using the good old serendipity squares technique ... there is brilliant bit of paper in the collection that has these all over it!

This is such a simple technique to use and you can get as involved or keep it as simple as you like... I remember in my early days of scrapbooking with Creative Memories this was a favourite technique of mine. 

This bright fun collection is easy to work with and fun to play with ... i especially recommend it if you have loads of girly photos to get through ... this collection is PERFECT for girls!

Thanks for popping on over for a look.
have a great day.

Cheers from Kel.

Hello, I'm back today with this weekends saturday sketch... this time I have used the

The bright colours are sooooo easy to layer up as well, working with this collection is plain old FUN.
Although I'm not sure what happened to the butterflies .... how could I possibly forget to butterflies on a layout???? LOL

So here is the sketch it's all based on...

 Thanks for stopping by for a look.
Have a great week

On This Day Layout

Ahhhh... Romance! The On This Day Collection is awesome. 
 I'm a sucker for all things to do with romance and I just couldn't resist doing the great big heart thing with this page!!

I have really gone to town with the inking on this layout and I must confess I think it's the element that really makes it ... giving it a more shaded and romantic feel than just the stark paper would if left alone.

Of course the pearl flourishes and soft muslin in the back ground help to create the romantic feel as well. I really love this quote and it suits the people in this photo perfectly which always helps!

All the flowery elements in this layout are from the collectables pack and the wood flourishes are all from Kaisercraft. Only that very cool harlequin background stamp is not from Kaisercraft... I got that from a friend who does Kazzazz ... it's so gorgeous! I find myself wanting to use it on every page I do!! LOL
Well thanks for stopping by for a look.
Have a great day.
Cheers from Kel.

Saturday Sketch #1 May 2013

 Todays Saturday Sketch is a busy one! I've used the Porcelain Rose Collection again this time.
I rarely do pages with this many photos on it and it was a bit of fun to put together this arrangement!!

I stuck with the busy theme and kept lots of movement on the page as well as keeping as closely to the original sketch as I could. I also gladly took up the journaling challenge ... I think it's important to do this kind of page every now and then, and really tell the story.

Anyway, this is the sketch it's all based on...

Thanks for stopping by for a look.
Cheers from Kelly-ann.

Porcelain Rose Layout

Today I'm introducing the beautiful new Porcelain Rose Collection from Kaisercraft.

This is a divinely beautiful collection that is full of delightful bird images... this sort of thing is HUGELY popular at the moment all over the world in scrapbooking circles of course and I'm really happy to see Kaisercraft is quite able to follow suit! LOL

On this page I have used the speciality Die cut paper sheet as my main feature, and this this paper is nothing if not special!! Apart from the gorgeous frame the original paper has the gorgeous flowers and bird already printed on it and highlighted with rich gloss varnish  The music notes and other floral background images are also already printed on the paper.... how beautiful it is and how easy it was to work with. I basically just added the photo, a journaling pannel and some 3D flowers.

I love it when paper makes your job so easy because sometime when it comes to scrapping I just want to kick back and enjoy instead of working for every element on a page.

Thanks for popping by for a look.
Cheers from Kel.
