September DT work for 2 Crafty Chipboard Pt 1.

 Hello & HAPPY Monday!
Today I share this fun bright with a hint of grunge layout, as part my September DT work for 2 Crafty Chipboard
 When receiving the newly August 2018 Mini released Chipboard title  my Niece...
 I was instantly inspired & knew straight away what photo I wanted to scrapbook....

'♥ my Niece'
 2 Crafty Chipboard used:
Tangled lamp post (March 2018 release)
Brooke's swirl
Fine word set 3 (August 2018 release)
♥ my Niece (August 2018 release)
ATC - branches

Starting with ♥ my Niece title I gave it a coat of gesso, once it dried then inked the  with teal & the words my niece with a fuchsia pink...
Another gorgeous August 2018 release chipboard piece I used was 'Memories' from the Fine word set 3..  I wanted the fine word Memories sitting on the ♥ to stand out a little more AND what better way than using black...

To bring some focus back to the B & W photo, I decided to use a leftover/ negative circle chipboard piece from the 6" Circle revolution frame... First giving it a couple of coats of gesso, once dried inking with a pastel Apricot colour...

Here to the right side of photo is a (March 2018 release) Tangled lamp post also coated with gesso.. 

AND this 2017 chippy piece has been inked with black.... 

That's it from me today! THANKS for stopping by & have a great week!!

Anna's Craft Cupbaord - Kaisercraft - Wonderland Christmas Cards & layout

Hello everyone! 
Today I share my final creations some Christmas Cards & 'Tis the Season' layout for my September DT work for Anna's Craft Cupboard using beautiful  Kaisercraft - 'Wonderland'

First up are these 4 Cards....

With all the beautiful papers & Die cuts in the 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 paper pad was a great way to whip some Christmas cards to have ready for Christmas this yr... I am tickled pink & a bit proud of my self to have created these beauties as you can see NO mixed media for Meee! LOL!!!!!  Don't get me wrong I have a love for mixed media, but I also just adore simple (well simple for me) Cards...

The Kaisercraft Crochet Doilie die is a new favourite of mine atm... And you may have remembered seeing it on my previous layout, which included a video tutorial... pop by HERE  to check that out if you haven't already... 😀😉  
WELL I just had to feature this on the cards....
I have kept with the same basic set up!!

AND next up is this layout.....
This layout featuring my son photo taken back in 2012 (when he was still keen for his mum taking photos.. lol!)

'Tis the Season' 

I started with the 'Chilled' paper as my background piece, adding some stamping using the Kaisercraft triangle stamp & white gesso...  then tearing the top & bottom of the 'Snowfall (the circle) paper and attaching this onto Chilled paper, and just having just the top & bottom of the Chilled paper exposing some of that stamping...  Then added some more stamping onto the 'Snowfall (the circle) paper with Kaisercraft triangle stamp, but this time with black ink....

The Speciality paper snowflake was super cute & I just had to find a way to incorporate it into my page, So I cut away the tips of the snowflake & attach this, before adding my matted photo.....
Inspired by those circles I decided to cut out a few of the circles from the left over pieces & with foam tape attach the circles.... The quote strip is from the also from the 'Snowfall paper' 

The finishing it off with some of the Prima - Art Stones & adding just little bit of teal colour to some of these stones...
I hope I have inspired you in some way working with the beautiful Kaisercraft - Wonderland Collection..
The Kaisercraft - Wonderland Collection is avalaible in Anna's Craft Cupboard store now HERE

Thank you for stopping by

Anna's Craft Cupboard Kaisercraft - Wonderland 'Love being together' layout by Rachael Funnell

This month for Anna's Craft Cupboard I got the  Kaisercraft - 'Wonderland' to play with...

Now this beautiful collection may not be your traditional Christmas red, green colour scheme... I personally enjoyed working with lovely greens, teal, dark blue, a hint of tan & white.... AND hopefully after seeing what I have created you are keen too....
For my first page featuring a black & white photo of us on Christmas day 2017!!!

'Love being together' 

With the stars at the top right & the cute tree images at the bottom left on the 'Frost' paper I thought were great background/base to have..... AND for a bit more of a interesting background, I then added a bit of colour, stamping & splatters....

One thing I really like about Kaisercraft papers, is that strip at the bottom of the pages that we cut off, which can have some cool designs and I have incorporated that strip from the 'Frost' paper into my page.....The 'Snow Crystals' have a great range of quotes... I went with 'The most wonderful time of the year' .... from the sticker sheet i have used the green & part of the blue heart strips, I cut away a few of the blue hearts, added some foam tape for a bit more dimension & placing them randomly...

The couple of circles layers, sitting underneath my photo, created using a couple papers from the 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 Wonderland paper pad, The arrows I have used are also from the paper pad..  Another great quote this one from the sticker sheet...

I am really happy with the end result! I do have more to share & will soon... So be sure to stop again real SOON!  The Kaisercraft - 'Wonderland' Collection is available now from Anna’s Craft Cupboard ---> HERE
