Tresors de Luxe January Challenge

Hi Everyone,

I came across this gorgeous mood board for Tresors de Luxe January Challenge  and thought I would give it a go.  Tresors de Luxe are an Etsy shop which sell to die for laces, trinkets embellishments and flowers.

This LO of my nephew's beautiful wife was created a few months back and I hadn't gotten around to sharing it.  The colours were a perfect match for this mood board, so I decided to tweak it by adding various pieces of gorgeous lace from my stash, a bit of bling and a few embellishments.

Kaisercraft DT - Blue Bay Collection

Hi Everyone,

What a fabulous way to start the new year by sharing Kaisercraft's gorgeous new Blue Bay Collection!!  There are so many beautiful papers in this shabby chic range, that it was difficult to choose which ones to use.  I think you will have to get in quick at your local scrap store with this stunning collection, as it will be flying out the door!!

“Beautiful Moments” Layout 
For my 1st layout I combined the weatherboard side of the "Sea Breeze" pp with the reverse side of the "Sapphire" pp using the lacy edge of the weatherboard paper to create a border, which I layered with the torn corrugated cardstock and a floral sticker border from the matching 12x12 sticker sheet.
I arranged some of the matching collectables around my photo with a few mini paper blooms, sea breeze sparklets and a wooden vine flourish.  The white section of the background was altered with the honeycomb texture stamp with the sea breeze ink pad, then randomly mistied over the top.

Other Products:   mists, flowers

“Smile” Layout
  On my second layout, I framed the floral side of the "Sea Breeze" pp with the creamy white reverse side of the "Placid" pp  and the black reservse side of the "Misty" pp.  I altered the background by coating the centre section randomly with gesso, then masked over this using the Lattice template with texture paste, and applying aqua mist over the top to make the masked lattice more pronounced.  The last step to create my background was randomly stamping with one of the stamps from the matching Blue Bay clear stamp set and the vintage fence texture stamp in black.

  To frame my photo I layered fussy cut the frames and the flowers  from the "Azure" gloss speciality pp and the "Sapphire" pp, combined with sections from both sides of the  "Misty" pp and a sticker border from the 12x12 sticker sheet.  I also used one of the new Decorative Dies to cut out the lacy floral border tucked under my photo, then finished off with one of the new "Delicate Words" clear stickers as my title... absolutely love these!!

Kaisercraft DT - Pop Collection

Hi All,


Today I am sharing my creations using the new Kaisercraft "Pop" Collection.  This range is jam-packed with vibrant colours and is just the thing for your celebration and birthday LO's.

"Live Every Moment" Layout
With this range there are so many colour combinations you can play with.  For this LO I went with the blue and green tones to compliment my photo and created a bubble background by masking the background with the "Bubble" template and glass bead medium, misting over the top with lime green and aqua mists, then die-cutting open circles from the reverse side of the "Popcorn" pp to layer over the top.
To create some contrast I have used hints of black by stamping and adding some of the new "Distressed and "Party Time" Photo Overlays to my layers.

Other Product:  Mists, Glass Bead Gel Medium, Circle Die

"Enjoy Every Moment" Layout
For my second LO I chose to use pinks and blues with a hint of yellow.  How cute is the reverse side of the "Frosting" pp with the yummy sprinkles.  I was inspired by this paper and the photo of my adorable niece to create my background with flicks of brightly coloured mists and the glass gel medium masked with the small dot stencil from the "Quarters" template.
