Kaisercraft DT - Basecoat Christmas Collection

Hi everyone,  
How gorgeous is Kaisercraft's new "Basecoat Christmas" Collection!!  Absolutely loved working with this beautiful rustic Christmas range. I created 4 Christmas projects with this collection, but check out the blog link HERE to look at Michelle Grant's stunning "Special Moments" Layout and see how she was inspired to use this Christmas range in a non-Christmas layout.

"Ho Ho Ho" Layout
Kaisercraft has some new washi tapes available from this month.  I have used the cute red polka dot washi tape on this layout to create a border. To tie in with the shiny bauble accents in the "Bells" pp I altered the wooden reindeer with red and gold glitter glass and inked his antlers in gold.

Manor House Creations - Country Estate LO

Hi Everyone,

Today I am sharing a LO created for Manor House Creations using the vibrant Country Estate Collection.  This collection is perfect for those outdoor photos and comes with a set of matching diecuts, flowers and chipboard pack.

Your Sweet Smile
To create this LO I used both sides of the New Day pp and punched some strips of the green side of the Birdsong pp, then layered them to create my background.

I have framed the photograph with a mix of flowers combined with the black rosette ornate frame which I cut up and tucked in amongst the flowers.

 
The midnight frilly roses were altered by pulling out the centre bud and replacing with a fabric brad.


Manor House Product:
Country Estate papers:  Birdsong, New Day, 12x12 Elements Sheet,
Flowers:  Country Estate - red, Frilly Roses -midnight, Belle floral, teeny weenies, Leaves - light green small
Embellishments: Beautiful You chipboard pack, Ornate Frames - rosette black

Other Product:
MME pp, Carolee's Creations mini alpha stickers, Martha Stewart deep edge punch, Kaisercraft weatherboard stamp, Prima stitched stamps, Vintologie stencil, glimmer mist-scarlet, texture paste, archival ink, fabric brad

Thanks so much for stopping by.
