Kaisercraft DT - Be-YOU-tiful Collection

Hi Everyone,
I am sharing my 2nd posting for this week at Kaisercraft using the gorgeous new Be-YOU-tiful  range.  Totally fell in love with this nature inspired range, which has some delicious papers that cry out to be fussy cut.

"Life is Full of Wonderful Memories" - Layout
Our family has wonderful memories of holidays spent on the farm in Forster.  Love that the kids were able to get a taste of what it's really like to help out with everyday chores,  like moving the cows to fresher pastures.  Loved the nature themed feel of these pp's which are perfect for those outdoorsey photos.

I love to fussy cut my papers to create depth to my LO's, so when I opened up my parcel of goodies and saw this range, I was in heaven.  So of course the first thing I did when I started my projects for this range was grab my scissors.   For this LO I fussy cut the leaves from the Graceful pp and adhered them with foam tape to the cream side of the Delightful pp to make them pop.
The background was altered with the Kaiercraft Lattice stencil using Viva Inka Gold paste, then stamped with the texture and script stamps as well as stamping around the edges with a woodgrain edges stamp.
The Kaisercraft fancy corners and fancy border wooden flourishes are becoming one of my favs.  I have left them natural to blend in with the outdoor feel to my LO.

"Loving Life"-  Layout
 Couldn't resist a little more fussy cutting for this LO.

This time I cut out the gorgeous roses and added a couple of the paper blooms, which I flattened out, so that I could tuck them in amongst the fussy cut roses.
I altered the wooden fancy heart flourish with pink embossing powder to match in with the colour scheme.
Loved the Diecut and Specialty Gloss papers that co-ordinate with this range.  Here I have used the speciality gloss paper as a resist by blending in some pink ink in both corners.  I then cut out the centre square and sandwiched the Diecut frame in between the 2 pieces of the altered gloss paper.

"Chase Your Dreams" - Card
 A quick and easy card using the Paper Pad and Collectables and a couple of punches.

"Time" - OTP Tag
You receive so many beautiful diecuts in the Collectables pack, so I decided to layer them up with the papers from the Paper Pad to create a pretty tag which I accented with a couple of Sparklets and touch of Lace.
