still revisiting kaisercraft secret garden

IMG_7577 (Medium)IMG_7578 (Medium)Kaisercraft secret garden,paper collection and matching collectables. Here I layered some of the doily collectables on top of one another with foam pads, and just went to town with ribbon,lace and flowers,and punched leaves.The pretty lace on the bottom card was a brilliant find in a second hand shop in a country town outside of Adelaide . I visited there with my sister last time I was on holidays’ and found lots of interesting buttons and lace! Today is so much cooler here, it’s lovely, so I am enjoying some relaxing time in the craft room. Til tomorrow….

revisiting Kaisercraft secret garden..

IMG_7574 (Medium)IMG_7575 (Medium)True to my new years resolution I pulled out some old paper the other day, first up is Kaisercraft secret garden. I loved this paper collection when it came out so I have a lot of it , and I still love it, so it didn’t make the lose it pile – I made a few cards which I will show over the next couple days and the rest has gone back into the shelves.The interesting thibng about this exercise is that since buying the paper I have new dies, stamps etc, so the cards I am making now with the old paper look nothing like the cards I made originally! The top card has some butterflies that I stamped onto patterned paper and fussy cut out, the bottom card has a die cut butterfly ( a memory box die), and I added a doily and sequins to that one. Super hot day here, I jumped into a cold shower as soon as I got home – feel so overheated.salads again for tea, this feels like a long summer this year – looking forward to a pot of soup as soon as we get some cold weather. Til tomorrow….

kaisercraft secret garden 9 and 10

IMG_2435 (Medium)IMG_2436 (Medium)Kaisercrat secret garden. The top card has a piece 0f the 6″ pad as the background, and a piece from one of the 12 x 12 card fronts¬† trimmed down. I used a kaisercraft mannequin die and hand cut a dress from a piece of the 6″ pad.Added a collectable and some sequins to finish this one. For the bottom card – so simple – a piece of the 6″ pad and a collectable is all this one needed!punched butterfly, and sentiment and done. Freezing day here today, far too cold in the craft room,¬† so after a visit to Mum and dad’s this afternoon, it will be tea in front of the heater and Tv! til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft secret garden 7 and 8

IMG_2433 (Medium)IMG_2434 (Medium)I have taken a short break from the craft room, where I am planning out August/september lessons, to post a couple of new cards. We are back to my Kaisercraft secret garden series, and for both of these cards I have used lots of lovely lace and ribbon, along with some dies , mainly kaisercraft – they are my new favourite brand of die as they cut through so easily, and both cards use paper from the 6″ pad.Of course I have also used the matching’s very cold here today – I am not sure we have even reached double digits, so I don’t know how much longer I will be in the craft room before I retire to the seat closest to the heater!Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft secret garden 4….

IMG_2429 (Medium)This one is a piece of the 12 x 12 papers ( kaisercraft secret garden) cut to fit my card base ( stampin up cardstock) and I die cut the flowers and leave branch with kaisercraft dies.There is a little doily collectable tucked at the back and i added a couple of extra flowers. A lazy day today, trying to get used to the idea that my holidays are over and it is back to work tomorrow,…where did those two weeks go? Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Secret garden 3….

IMG_2428 (Medium)Kaisercraft secret garden 6′ paper pad and matching collectables. Stampin up cardstck and ribbon. Mum gave me the die cut label, so I am not sure what brand it is, and I added some bling. love pink and blue together! I have spent a little time in the craft room today, the last couple of days I have been concentrating on lessons and some customer orders, but today I just sat and created. I pulled out some very old graphic 45 papers ( a ladies diary, baby to bride and le romantique) . I had bits and pieces of each one, but the colours are very similar so I combined them all and made a few cards. I had promised myself I would start using up some of these older papers, so feel good that I have started! til tomorrow..

Kaisercraft Secret garden 2….

IMG_2427 (Medium)Another Kaisercraft secret garden card where the words on the collectable are hidden by me..this time with a well placed flower and leaf collectable.The papers used on this card are from the 6″ pad and I added some lace and ribbon. Today has been spent in the craft room fulfilling orders, I am all caught up now, so it is time to turn my thoughts to August lessons. where is the year going? til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft secret garden 1

IMG_2426 (Medium)This months Kaisercraft release of Secret Garden is absolutely gorgeous, and I couldn’t help myself – I bought the 6″pad, all the 12 x 12 papers and 2 packets of the collectables. It has been a great distraction when I have been meant to be cleaning out the craft room! I have had to force myself to pack it away for now, but not before I made a multitude of cards. We will split this group into 2 or 3 otherwise you will all be sick of seeing them all! This is the first one – Stampin Up blushing bride cardstock,layers of papers from the pad and a few collectables. the flower trim is also from stampin up. the collectable flowers wre hiding the words “to me’ on the label which I didn’t want on this card. There’s a handy hint – flowers can hi9de a multitude of errors!Til tomorrow….
