Simple Stories Christmas Cards

Hi all, some Christmas Cards to show you.....




I have used the Simple Stories DIY Christmas Collection. From the 6x6 paper pad I chose 3 different papers and cut them up to make a colour block for the base of the card. ( This would be great to do with scraps!) I diecut some doilies from gold card to put behind the sayings from the Card Layers pack. added some gold ribbon  and some of the DIY stickers.
I have tried to keep these cards fairly flat so it makes for easy posting, but a few foam dots were used in the process!

Rustic Harmony Cards

Hi there,  a couple of cards using Kaisercraft's Rustic Harmony.....




This Collection is beautiful with lovely colours and papers.  The patterned papers I have used are from the paper pad, the patterns are smaller which is great for cards and also there are 3 or 4 specialty papers in the pad. I cut out the frames from cream cardstock with a favourite die of mine - Spellbinders A2 Filigree Delight. Then I layered up various Butterfly dies with the patterned paper - I used Spellbinders die -Wonderful Wings and the MFT dienamics -Butterflies.  Easy to add in some pieces from the Collectables pack which I find great to use, and a bit of bling and you are done!

Basecoat Pocket Page

Hi there - a Pocket page I have made using Kaisercraft's Basecoat Collection....



I have used a We R Memories 12x12 page with 9 x 4" pockets.  I made my 4" squares from the Basecoat paper pad and rounded the corners. The Collectables were used to embellish each pocket . I also used some wooden stars and banner pieces from Studio Calico found here.

Simple Stories Baby Cards

Hi there - Here are some baby cards I have made....






I made 4 of them all up as my daughter requested 3 Baby cards for friends having babies and so I thought I would make an extra to have as a spare. Sometimes I love to mass produce cards and just individualize them by changing  a colour, and or the embellishing. For these cards I used 4x6 Simple Stories Snap cards to make these 5 3/4" square cards. I added some Studio Calico wood veneer people/hearts and some Brads . A bit of stamping and I was done! So easy using the 6x4 mix and match cards.

Male Cards

Hi there - some cards using Kaisercraft's Outdoor Trail Collection......





This collection is great for male cards especially those who love the outdoors and are into hunting and fishing! The collectables that come with the collection make it easy to embellish the cards.  I have also used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out, of black cardstock, the deer, fishing rod and the gone fishing title.

Websters Strawberry Fields

Hi there, here are a couple of pocket pages I have done using the gorgeous Strawberry Fields papers from Websters...



These pages are of photos taken over a year ago at SENZ 2013!   I just love these Strawberry Field papers from Websters, especially the Little Views one with the small squares.  I have cut up the Imagine paper into 4x6 pieces to place my bottom photos on. Then I have cut up the 3x4s from the Quote Me and Storyteller Card sheet 2 to put in the other pockets. I added in my journalling and then it was onto embellishing!! I used some of my Flair circles which I printed out and then used my Epiphany 1" circle  to punch them out. I also used some of the word sentiment stickers from Strawberry Fields, some enamel dots and hearts and a couple of punched out butterflies!
The first page uses Design A page protector from Project Life and the 2nd one is from We R Memory Keepers with the 3 4x4 square pockets in the middle row.

Be-YOU-tiful Cards

Hi there, some cards using the Be-YOU-tiful Collection from Kaisercraft....





This is certainly a beautiful Collection! I just love the papers I have used for the backgrounds, these ones are from the paper pad and have lots of detail. Seems a shame to cover them up! But they are great for a background behind your main embellishments. I really like how Kaisercraft have some lovely sayings and their Collectables make it quite easy to add to these groupings. I have used the MFT postage die on each one and the bike and birdcage are also from MFT. The butterfly has been cut out with the Memory Box dies.
