The final Ooh La la card…

img_8043-mediumToday 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….

Ooh La La 11 and 12.

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…)…

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….

Kaisercraft Ooh La La number 4..

img_8028-mediumSorry 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….
