Hi There!
I have 2 more layouts to share today as part of my October DT work for Anna's Craft Cupboard

my 3rd layout using the gorgeous Kaisercraft - Mint Wishes  featuring my boy photo taken in 2010, back in the day when he would HAPPILY allow me to get photo’s like these….These days he is in his teenager years… I’ve got little chance getting a photo of him, let alone festive photos like this… LOL!  SO! I’m VERY grateful to have these photos & these are now priceless, precious…
‘Christmas Magic’ 

I have created a step by step video tutorial for this page… So sit back & ENJOY!!!!

And for my 4th & final layout....
 Here I’ve created a non Christmas themed, even though this photo was taken in December….. Adding purple… YES! PURPLE into the mix…. This is what I came up with…

‘Love Joy’

My background created using Tim Holtz – Distress Oxide..
This time with seedless preserves & just in case you may have missed it I
did go with the same process  I did on ‘Joy to the world’ layout.......

Kaisercraft 'Mint Wishes' part 2

Hi There!
I'm back with another layout using the Kaisercraft Mint Wishes part of my October design team work for Anna's Craft Cupboard
This one featuring my girl, this photo was taken back in 2012…..
‘Joy to my World’
Lots of layers using the Mint Wishes – Sticker SheetDie cuts & Kaisercraft flowers…..

I couldn’t resist on purchasing some of the new Tim Holtz – Distress Oxide
You can view all of the Distress Oxides ——-> HERE
Decided to have a bit of a play creating this layout…..
I’ve used the ‘frayed burlap’ & ‘lucky clover’
Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink Pad - Frayed Burlap                Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink Pad - Lucky Clover
To achieve this look, I applied the inks using the Tim Holtz/Ranger
Mini Foam Ink Blending Tool, onto the white cardstock….. Then sprayed with water….
let that dried, then repeat by reapplying the inks in some areas only
because I wanted more of an oxide finish…. I did reapply about 3 times in some areas…
One thing I did found was, allowing some bigger drips of water to fall onto
the inks to get a bigger circle/oxide finish…..
REALLY HAPPY on how this has turned O.U.T….. Honestly! At first I was thinking I already have distress inks, why do I need/WANT these, BUT! I am SO very glad I did!
I hope you liked my my Kaisercraft Mint Wishes layout Joy to my world,
