Kaisercraft St. Nicholas number 1- christmas 2013

IMG_3001 (Medium)This months release from kaisercraft includes this collection of papers – Sty. Nicholas. My favourite as it’s vintage themed. Here I have used the 6″ paper pad, and the frame is from a piece of the 12 x 12 paper. The image is from the matching collectables pack. I have been very  on and off with my christmas making this year – not too inspired by the christmas releases so far, but have just realised we are nearly into october and I need to make approximately 400 cards , with one order for 50 already, so over the next couple of weeks it’s all about christmas for me! Now to find that christmas spirit…. Til tomorrow….

Christmas card with window die

IMG_5348 (Medium)I found some wallpaper sample books in the bottom of my cupboard,some gorgeous papers in there! and so I have used a few to make some christmas cards .So the papers here are from my wallpaper sample book, and I used my madison window die, and a stampin up stamp set for the view from the window – A wish for peace – added a little glitter to the stamped image for interest.I have been scrapbooking today – not something I normally do, but it’s back to cardmaking now! Til tomorrow….

Holly Bright 7 and 8

IMG_5366 (Medium)IMG_5367 (Medium)Our internet outage is over for now, so I thought I would post 2 cards today, we have had so many outages lately that I have a backlog of cards to post and I feel we have been on this series for long enough – so here are the last two cards in my Kaisercraft Holly Bright series. The card at the bottom uses a piece of paper from the 6″ pad for the background, a tag from the matching pack of collectables, and a greeting cut from the 12 x 12 paper that has greetings printed all over it. I just added a cream ribbon bow. The card on the top also has a sheet from the paper pad for the background, and I fussy cut the pine garland from  a sheet of 12 x 12 paper, and also the flowers. the greeting is from the pack of collectables.Today in the craft room I have been jumping around from one project to another – too many ideas and not enough time! til tomorrow….

Holly Bright number 5

IMG_5364 (Medium)A square card today, and I covered the base with a dark beige piece of kaisercard – I can’t remember the name of the colour , but it works well with this range of kaisercraft Holly Bright paper. I used a push out and a piecs of patterned paper from the 6″ pad, popped a mistletoe collectable behind, and cut a greeting from the 12 x 12 paper that has 36 different greetings on it( Great value). Some ribbon across the join, and a bow and we are done. Terrific class today, creating with this range of paper,and now I am off to the craft room to sit down and see what happens! Til tomorrow….

Holly Bright number 2

IMG_5356 (Medium)Here is number 2, made with kaisercraft Holly Bright – 6″paper pad, and the 12 x 12 sheet in the same collection that has all the greetings on it. I did a little bit of matting, and added a cream ribbon for this simple card. Another cold night here, so once again it’s just a night in front of the heater and TV! Til tomorrow…..

Holly Bright – christmas 2013

IMG_5355 (Medium)Well, we have the net back – lets hope it’s for more than a couple of days this time! This month Kaisercraft released the first of their christmas papers for this year, and my classes this month have been using this collection. I made a few different ones at home, so I thought I would post a few of them over the next few days.the collection is called Holly Bright, and it’s a very homespun feel of design, with a lovely jewel green colour and a beige that would go well with kraft cardstock. Here i have used papers from the 6″ pad for the background and the scallop edging, and fussy cut some of the flowers from a 12 x 12 piece of paper. There is a whole sheet full of greetings which I have used here, and I also used a tag from the collectables pack.For now I am off to clear my in box which may be full to bursting after so many days! Til tomorrow….

Prima Lyric number 6

IMG_7714 (Medium)Although this Prima Lyric paper isn’t Christmas paper, I did make a few xmas cards from it – the colours and the word Joy just jumped out at me – so I will show them and then we will move on to something else in the next couple of days. Just a bit of fussy cutting on this one – no ribbon or flowers for this card .This beautiful paper doesn’t need any embellishing.Tonight I am off to the craft room to organise my August classes – I have been very lazy this week and haven’t done any crafting in the craft room, but that is set to change! Til tomorrow….
