Kaisercraft Cherry Tree lane..revisited..

_MG_1195 (Medium)_MG_1196 (Medium)_MG_1197 (Medium)As regulars to my blog all know, I have been having a huge tidy up of the craft room. I have done my best to stay on task, and I have three tubs of assorted paper collections that have to go. Now and again I have been distracted with some collections that I am ready to give up but just wanted to create with one last time. This is one of those collections that I stopped the work and sat and created with just what was to hand, so quite simple, just a ribbon bow, and a little lace added. The collection is a couple of years old…Kaisercraft Cherry Tree Lane. the top card is a double z fold card, and I know I have said it before..I am going to film a youtube video on how to do this fold. I have no excuse as we are pretty much confined to home just now, and aren”t we lucky that we are crafters and have lots of projects to keep us busy!Til next time, stay safe…..

The Last Cherry Tree Lane card ( 15)

IMG_7085 (Medium) I can’t promise this card ( made with kaisercraft Cherry Tree Lane 6″paper pad) won’t be the last, but it is for quite a while!The image in the centre is from the 12 x 12 cut apart sheet from the same collection, and I trimmed the sides with lace, and cut a banner shape to frame it. A light pink ribbon bow to finish. Yesterday i bought some new Kaisercraft High Tea papers, so beautiful, and I can’t wait to start making with it but first this week I have to make some wedding cards to fill my box, The June long weekend craft fair is not far away, and I have to start preparing for it! Til tomorrow….

Cherry Tree lane 14..

IMG_7084 (Medium)Very quick post today as I am off to work shortly. This is the third lesson card that I did with Kaisercraft Cherry Tree Lane 12 x 12 papers.One piece as a backgound,one of the “card fronts” from another 12 x 12 piece, a bit of fussy cutting, ribbon, lace and a flower.Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Cherry Tree lane 12 and 13…

IMG_7081 (Medium)IMG_7083 (Medium)Yes we are back to Kaisercraft Cherry Tree lane and these are two cards that I did for a lesson. The top card has and oval die cut from the front of the card, and the back ( or inner panel) is decorated so that the bird panel ( from a piece of the 12 x 12 paper) shows through the die cut hole. The front panel is decorated with some fussy cut flowers and ribbon. The second card uses the oval we die cut from the first card – no waste here..with a stamped sentiment, some more fussy cutting and another ribbon bow. The backgroung layer was trimmed from a sheet of 12 x 12 paper, making sure I had the bird positioned where I wanted him. Nathan and I have spent this morning photo-ing my recent makes, and now I have to go and put inserts in all of them, a most tediuos job but it has to be done! til tomorrow…..

The last two Kaisercraft Cherry tree Lane cards

img_2736-mediumimg_2737-mediumThis is my last blog for a couple a weeks while I go on my Cruise. We leave tomorrow so today has been a mad rush to finish packing, and do some shopping for the menfolk ( they have their menu plan written out so they are quite organised!). Today is a good day to finish up with my Kaisercraft Cherry Tree Lane collection. I have enjoyed making with this collection and I do still have some left, so we will revisit it at some stage.The top card is layers of papers from the 6″ pad,with a collectable , lace, ribbon and a hat pin ( by Prima). the lower card  has a die cut Ornate circle ( paper rose) and a collectable.That’s all from me for now, see you all in 2 weeks!

Kaisercraft Cherry Tree Lane number 9…

img_2735-mediumMost of the previous cards made with this collection ( Kaisercraft Cherry Tree Lane) were made with the blue tones of paper, now we have a few made with the green tones. The cardstock is Stampin Up, as is the pleated ribbon, and the background paper is from the 6″ pad. The focus is on a card from the pull apart sheet, and I added a prima and green tara flower and some punched leaves.Oh, and some lace! I am officially on holidays, and have spent today stewing pears, we have an abundance of them so the freezer will be quite full. Pear crumble all winter! Til tomorrow…..

Kaisercraft Cherry Tree Lane number 8

img_2733-medium-2Todays Kaisercraft Cherry Tree Lane card is a side stepper card. I have done a You-tube clip on how to measure and cut/fold this style of card, on the right hand side bar of the blog you will see You-tube…click on that and you will see my you-tube channel with this and many other little clips I have done.Meanwhile for this one I have used… one of the pull apart cards  from the 12 x 12 sheet,a couple of the matching collectable, prima and green tara flowers, kaisercraft leaf die,a small piece of a border from the sticker sheet, and a small piece of the dotty paper ( 12 x 12). I also did some fussy cutting for the stepper part of the card. The big news here is that I have left my job at kmart Aust.Yesterday was my last day after 36 years,and my workmates gave me a lovely send off.When I return from the cruise I will be working at Paper Flourish, the store where I have been teaching for 6 1/2 years. I will be surounded with crafty goodness! How will I contain myself? I am so looking forward to this new chapter! Til tomorrow…

Kaisercraft Cherry Tree Lane number 7..

img_2732-mediumWorking with the blue shades from the Kaisercraft Cherry Tree Lane collection,I came up with this one which uses some dies and punches to make the flower, and a very old button from my collection to highlight the tag. The papers are from the 6″ pad,and I have layered a couple of the pull apart tags inking around all the edges with Tea Dye distress ink.I spent a lovely hour over at Paper Flourish today, browsing,chatting and buying, I bought a few more copic markers as I am trying to build my collection, and picked up some lovely papers from Bo Bunny called Petal Lane ( gorgeous papers in shades of soft pink  and yellow with pops of black) and a new Kaisercraft 6″ paper pad called Hanami Garden which is a Japanese inspired collection.Now I am off to the craft room to create! Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Cherry Tree lane number 5

img_2731-mediumI love the simplicity of this one! Kaisercraft Cherry Tree Lane 6″ pad and the 12 x 12 pull apart sheet from the same collection. That’s it ( except a ribbon bow and some inking around the edges).Even the shaped bracket and the sentiment came from the 6″ pad.Quick post today, as I am off to put my feet up for a minute after a busy day at work, and then think about what to cook for tea! Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Cherry Tree Lane number 4..

img_2730-mediumThe fourth card in my Cherry Tree lane series . Still working with the blue tones , this one has a collectable, and a piece from the pull apart sheet ( A little image in the left hand corner ) and a layering piece from the 6″ pad. The cardstock is from Stampin Up, and I used some very dainty lace, ribbon and a few pearls.Another lovely cool day here, and after our roast lunch am packing all the cruise crafty stuff to make sure my suitcase is big enough! til tomorrow….
