Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. I am sharing a layout that I have created using the Flowering Natives Collection from Kaisercraft. It has beautiful native florals in this collection. I decided to take it in a vintage direction with my layout.

I distressed the edges of my papers and inked them with vintage photo distress ink. I also used stamping and stencils to add textures in my background. I applied some of the vintage photo distress ink to my paper to dull it. When I did this, it reminded me of faded wallpaper.

I cut up a sentiment from the base of a paper and inked the edges and used it on my layout. I felt it complimented the sentiment. To add more vintage feel to my layout, I added some ink splatters once complete.

Birthday Wishes

 Hello everyone! It's been a very long while but I am very happy to be able to share a birthday card with you today. It's using paper from Kaisercraft's new release Lilac Mist.

To create my card, I wanted to showcase lots of the papers as I had a difficult time deciding which ones I wanted to use as I liked them all. To help me in my design decision, I pulled out of the paper pad some papers that were my first choice - which were four! Next I went to Pinterest and had a look at the card sketches. I often do this to kick start my ideas and then I found a sketch that appealed to me. This sketch would enable me to showcase the papers I selected plus provide me with some options in my composition.

My take on the sketch....

To get the dimensions of the smaller squares, I just cut out scrap paper and played around with them until I was happy with everything. 

Once my papers were positioned, I embellished with flowers and dies from previous releases.

Mini Quilt


Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. As Kaisercraft is having shipping delays with their products, it has given me the opportunity to dabble in some of my other crafting hobbies that I haven't had the time to do in which is quilting! I have been a fan of Lori Holt for a while and she has a Youtube channel where she shares tutorials for various crafts. She has a series called #sewyourstashseries where she shares quilt blocks that enable you to do just that. This block was a way back into quilting for me...nothing too big and something I could finish.

This is my completed quilt. This is from the Sew Your Stash Series #6 and it was so much fun! I only had to purchase some background fabric (only a little bit..the rest I already had) and I could mix and match as I went.

To complete my quilt, I did some straight line quilting in a grid pattern to finish it off.

Stay safe and well

With Sympathy Card


Happy New Year! This is my first post of the new year but sadly I am posting a sympathy card. These are the cards I find hardest to make. I try to consider the recipients and how they will receive the card. I went with an elegant style as I felt it would be would be appropriate.

I used Spellbinder frames and layered flowers to compliment my papers. I also added a butterfly as a symbol of hope.
I did some stamping on the inside of the card. I had a sympathy stamp set that had some sentiments.

Layered Christmas Card


Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. Today I am catching up on a blog post to share two cards that I made a little while ago for my friends (they already have their cards!) Now that I am on holidays and am starting to feel semi-normal, I have the energy to do more things that now and a bit of mojo to share things again!! I am wanting to use some things in my stash and I pulled out my beautiful Maja Design papers and a Tim Holtz colorize die that I ordered this year and created two cards.

I used a slimline card format as my card base and I created my own envelope using patterned paper. I used Kaisercraft cardstock to die cut the elements from the die. Having muted colours assisted in created the vintage look that I love.

For my second card, I used patterned paper from the collection to die cut the elements to create the scene. 

For both cards, I used a Tim Holtz seasons greeting die set to create my sentiment.

Supplies: Maja Design A Gift For You Collection, Tim Holtz Seasons Greetings 660058 and Colorize Holiday Village 664737 

For my friends in NSW take good care during these next few days. If we follow the health advice, this outbreak will be contained and we will be able to enjoy the festive season (hopefully!!)

To everyone else, take very good care.

Bon Joyage ~ Explorer Collection


Hello everyone! What a crazy time it has been. I have finished my school year and am now enjoying school holidays with a severe case of teacher tired. Hopefully it will pass and I will actually start to enjoy my break! Today I am sharing a layout which uses products and papers from Kaisercraft's December release called Voyage. I think this is something we are all craving...some travel to have a break or even to reconnect with people and loved ones physically. I think the digital connections we have learnt to use have been a blessing but it isn't the same as the real thing.

The photo I have chosen has tones which compliment the papers but also tell a story. The girl is looking forward and to me maybe searching. In 2021, we could be searching for new things, a fresh start, new adventures, hope. I added the calendar beside the photo to indicate this as well.

The collectables have so many great elements that can be used to compliment the page. I used them as some layers and used mounting foam to add dimension.

I also added a doily and some flowers to add a vintage feel to my layout.

Kaisercraft Products: P2949 Roam, P2948 Postmarks, P2952 Globetrotter, CT984 Explorer Collectables, Paper Blooms: F630 Iceberg and F628 Honey, CS802 Postmarks Texture Clear Stamp, IP757 Permanent Black Ink Pad

Christmas Greetings ~Maja Design


Hello everyone! I hope that you have had a greet weekend. Today I am sharing a Christmas card with you. I had bought a Tim Holtz die a while ago and have been wanting to use it and now that I had a tiny window of time, had the chance to create a card with it. It took a while and I love it.

I used the Snowglobe#2 die set. It has LOTS of tiny pieces. I also used Maja Design papers to create my vintage card.

To finish my card, I discovered a poinsettia die set in my stash that I forgot I had and made some white foamiran poinsettias. I also die cut some foliage and inked them up using distress inks.
