Here is my last ( I promise…maybe) Kaisercraft Ooh La La card. 17 cards with this paper!This one is the easiest one yet.A piece of 12 x 12 cut apart paper with a bow made from some of the 6″ pad paper. The bow was done with my Stampin Up bow punch. Most of the cards in this series were made when I had injured my shoulder and couldn’t use my die cutting machine,so I really relied on the papers, it was an interesting exercise. Tomorrow i start my new job at Paper Flourish. So looking forward to it, I can’t wait, surrounded by temptation all day!But for today, it’s grocery shopping and quite a hot day so a quiet day inside. Til tomorrow…..
Two cards today, made with kaisercraft Ooh La La, and some white space.I don’t often leave white space on my cards, but I like these and will experiment with more white space cards in the future. There is a mixture of fussy cut images, and collectables on both cards, with a little ribbon, a lace flower and just a couple of flowers.I spent a lovely afternoon in the craft room yesterday, I did miss crafting while I was away.This afternoon I am popping in there to make Mum and Dad a 61st wedding anniversary card and I have been doing a little tidying as I go too.Til tomorrow….
It appears we are back to some Kaisercraft Ooh La La makes!I drew out a tea cup template and cut it out of some of the patterned paper from the 6″ pad,and decorated with orange ric-rac,ribbon, Green Tara flowers lace and a collectable butterfly from the matching set.The sentiment was from the 6″ pad, and I mounted it on some blue cardstock. Things are back to normal here, all unpacking and washing done, caught up with Mum and Dad, inspected the garden, and today I am looking forward to sitting in the craft room after nearly 2 weeks away from it! Til tomorrow….
Today is the final Kaisercraft ooh La La card for now, and I used a card base that I had picked up from a craft fair quite some time ago. My mantra for this year is to use some of the items that I have been hoarding and this is the first! The card is a gatefold design with the extra panel with the trellis design. I guess we could recreate this if we had a trellis die..might have to look into that as I quite like the effect…The papers are from the 6″ pad, and some collectables and fussy cutting there too! I have spent the weekend decluttering my craft room and have quite a bit in a corner of the sitting room ready for some sort of sale sometime soon.Although my craft room looks much tidier you really can’t see where I have taken things from. I have the top few shelves of my paper shelving dedicated to ” use it this year or lose it” papers so you will see some new ideas for older papers throughout the year.Til tomorrow….
Kaisercraft Ooh La La , 12 x 12 paper,and matching collectables.These are still the cards i have been making while I haven’t been able to do any die cutting, but on the top card i used my Stampin Up bow builder punch, love it and will be using it a lot more!Otherwise a very simple card. The bottom card has lots of texture – lace, ribbon, pearls,sequins and even a flower! the greeting is a vertical stamp from Stampin Up, another item I will be using a lot this coming year! Til tomorrow ( with our last card in this series…for now…)…
Kaisercraft ooh La La again today, the top card has a doily and a wooden word from Kaisercraft as well as a bit of ric rac,and sequins.the bottom card has some fussy cutting and both cards use some of the collectables from the same range. The main images are cut from a 12 x 12 paper. i hope every one had an enjoyable Christmas break, mine was very relaxing, although Christmas day itself was very hot 40C so cold meat and salads and lots of lazing around! It has cooled down a lot in the meantime and we have rain today, so extreme weather conditions here! Til tomorrow….

No die cutting or stamping on this card – just all paper!I used a bit of everything in the collection – some papers from the 6″ pad, collectables, and one of the card front rectangles from a 12 x 12 paper.Did some fussy cutting, and added some bling. Got to love this paper! Til tomorrow….
Kaisercraft Ooh La La 6″ pad and collectables for this one with a bit of fussy cutting!I did cut a frame using Kaisercraft rectangle dies,and layered up a doily and some collectables with sequins and a ribbon bow to finish. I have spent a lovely relaxing time in the craft room this weekend gathering my strength for this last week of retail before Christmas – really looking forward to my 4 day break at the end of it! til tomorrow….
Sorry I have been missing a little bit this week, but I have been working extra hours due to the Christmas rush at work.Over the next couple of weeks I may be posting a little less due to the same reason. We are going back to my Ooh La La cards made with Kaisercraft Ooh La La paper collection and matching collectables. This is the paper I reached for when I damaged my shoulder and couldn’t do any die cutting – things have improved only a little but I have become adept at die cutting with my left hand, but still avoid it when I can! For this card I used papers from the 6″ pad., and layered them up, fussy cutting around the tops of the flower paper layer, and a tag from the pad. A collectables butterfly ,ribbon bow, kaisercraft pearls and green Tara flower all added texture. Til tomorow….
