Kaisercraft cherry Blossom..the last few..

IMG_7742 (Medium)IMG_7743 (Medium)IMG_7745 (Medium)The last few cards I made with Kaisercraft Cherry Blossom paper collection ( and matching collectables) were these ..lets call them screen cards!I used an a4 piece of cardstock, punched a border along one long edge, folded it into 3 equal panels, used a spellbinders label die on the bottom to mimic legs, and decorated!I had to do it because the paper reminded me so much of those chinese dressing screens you see.thank you all so much for your kind comments about my craft room. it’s a delight to sit in there now, and every now and again I tackle the little pockets of bits still remaining so by the time I go back to work next week it should be completely overhauled!Til tomorrow….

My craft room is back in working order,just a few hidden pockets to sort out at aanother time, because for the next day or so i am taking a break from cleaning and i am going to sit down and create. i taught a class this morning, and that always gets me in the mood for crafting! til tomorrow…..

Kaisercraft Cherry Blossom (4)

IMG_7746 (Medium)Kaiserrcraft cherrry Blossom paper collection and matching collectables. I cut a piece of white cardstock smaller than the card front, and die cut a circle from it, mounted it on top of the patterned paper, and added some collectables, sequins and a ribbon to finish.Day 2 of my holidays and it has been all action in the craft room. I have emptied my table and bookshelf, removed said bookshelf and put in two new ones. I am still in the process of shelving my stamp sets, and tomorrow the new desk will go in. Hopefully I will have a bit more room to move around in there, I have also nearly filled my wheelie bin with lots of older bits and pieces that are past their use by date and no good for passing on to like minded crafters!Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft card in a box Cherry Blossom cards

IMG_7741 (Medium)Here are 3 box cards I made for my stall at the fair. I used Kaisercraft Cherry Blossom papers from the 6″ pad and the matching collectables. I added some die cut flourishes ( kaisercraft die) and butterrflies 9 memory box die), leaves punched with martha stewart punch and a bit of bling and sequins. I have spent a little time in the craft room this weekend, trying to get to grips with the cas style of card making. Cas is clean and simple..lots of white space, and minimal embellishment. I have decided this style is not for me! I can do it, I just don’ t stop when I should, and before I know it I have maximum embellishment and my white space has a strategically placed ribbon, sequin or other sort of embellishment that would be frowned upon in CAS circles. I will persevere as I like a challenge! til tomorrow….
