Kaisercraft March DT Post - Finders Keepers and Story Book Collections

Hi Everyone,

This month Kaisercraft have released two gorgeous new collections.

First up is 'Finders Keepers', which is fresh, fun and has a mix of vibrant colours and pretty pastels with a fabulous array of modern designs mixed with pretty florals, which makes this range so versatile.  Of course I made a bee line for the gorgeous floral papers which inspired my fresh and pretty projects.  Absolutely loved creating with this collection!

 “Hello There Lovely” 
Normally, I would pull out my trusty scissors and start fussy cutting, but the gorgeous floral sticker border from the matching 12x12 sticker sheet, made creating this layout so quick and easy.  I cut the sticker in half lengthways to create the top and bottom borders.

You will probably all know that I love using stencils on my backgrounds, so when I saw the new Designer Templates, I was in heaven!!  I have used the Fading Dots template here and outlined the dots with a Souffle Pen to make them pop.
To soften the background and create a dreamy look, I sponged over the masking with white Kaisermist.

“Young, Wild and Free”
This time around I pulled out my scissors to fussy cut the gorgeous floral design from the 'Curio' pp.  Aren't those flower clusters just divine!!
I created clusters to surround my photo by layering the fussy cut flowers with the pretty matching Collectables.
Another of the gorgeous new Designer Templates, this time I have used the Script Template with modeling paste.

The second collection for this month is 'Story Book' a beautiful vintage inspired range with a library from yesteryear feel, lovely art deco type designs and faded book page and script patterns, just the thing for all book lovers!

”Life’s a Book We Fill the Pages”
I dug up this photo of Brittany from a few years ago, which went perfectly with this book themed collection  She was so totally engrossed in her book, that she didn't even notice that I had pulled out the camera!!
I have a soft spot for background stamps, so was overjoyed to see Kaisercraft's new larger background stamps, which are a staple for creating mixed media backgrounds.  I have used the new script background stamp here, and I know this will become a firm favourite!!
