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.

Kaiser Materials used:  Base Coat Christmas paper  – P1605 Bells, P1608 Baking, P1611 Glitter, PP947 Paper Pad, CT804 Collectables, SS254 12x12 Sticker Sheet,  FL364 Wooden Flourish Pack - Reindeer, FL546 Wooden Flourish Pack - ribbon bows, RS416 Sparklets - rouge, PT211 Printed Tape - polka dot red, T302 Mounting Foam Dots

"Christmas Memories" Layout
ADORE the woodgrain papers in this range! Here I have used the eye-catching red woodgrain pp "Flora" as my  background.

"Joys of the Season" Card
This range comes with a lovely coordinating Christmas stamp set and a Captured Moments pack.  I have used one of the stamps from the set to create a border around my card, and the green and white spotted Captured Moments card as the background for my greeting.
