Kaisercraft: Antique Bazaar

Hi my creatives!
A super quick post from me today, just sharing some of my Kaisercraft DT creations 
using the eclectic new collection;

Antique Bazaar

Here's my first layout, 
"Family Moments" 

Antique indeed! 
Such a beautiful collection of timeless patterns, clocks and vintage ephemera.
Here's a close up....

How divine! I can't decide if I love the paper or the collectables more?!!
Lots of details with a really pretty keepsake feel about it.
Speaking of pretty keepsakes, here's a gorgeous lil tag I created too....

I know - just beautiful! This really is a lovely collection.

And just to demonstrate how versatile it is too; 
a very contemporary layout.....


How cool is this?! Hard to believe that it's been created from the same collection, 
but just proof that Antique Bazaar is sooooo versatile!

Hope you liked my quick lil post, but for loads more ideas using Antique Bazaar

Kaisercraft: Chase Rainbows

Hi everyone!
Welcome back for more Kaisercraft inspiration with their STUNNING arty new collection;

Chase Rainbows

This collection will have your inner artist simply gasping - it is that fantastic!!!
 I created 4 layouts with this gorgeous paper in one night! 
Yep, I actually had to stop myself from using it...lol!
But enough chatter, here's my DT creations with Chase Rainbows......

"Grateful" layout

Isn't this just the prettiest?! This is so feminine and girly - I just love it!
Let's take a closer look at that embellie cluster.....

Sooooo pretty! 
Paper blooms, pearls, rhinestones, doilies and the cutest stickers - what's not to love?
But I did say this collection was arty - so check out the patterned paper in my next layout;


How cool is this paper?!!! Paint splatters over and white hessian! 
Too awesome!
And LOVING those collectables!
 Doilies & butterflies in fun and funky colours - OH yeah!!!
Here's a closer look.......

Those black doilies are Kaisercraft RubOns -
One of my fave products right now! They are so easy to apply and look incredible!
Speaking of incredible - here's another incredibly different page created with this collection....

"Hello Happiness" layout

Another really cool page & I love how 'boy' this feels despite the doilies and the butterfly. 
Orange is such a masculine colour for me, and the Kaisercraft Templates used on this layout really create interest and strength!

My final layout today is so vibrant and I just adore the patterned paper;

"This is the Life"

 Create a faux mixed media page with this awesome patterned paper!
No having to wait for paint drying - a lil too convenient not to take advantage of! :)
Soooooo cool!

And last up, a quick card......

I know, Chase Rainbows is just STELLAR! 
I am already purchasing more of it - creating an entire album with this collection!
Anyway, no secret that Kaisercraft have got it oh-so-right!!!
Loving Chase Rainbows!

Hope you liked my creations,

Cocoa Vanilla Studio: My Boy: So Much Fun!

Hi everyone!
Welcome back for more Cocoa Vanilla Studio deliciousness!
Today I am sharing another way too cute boy layout using the awesome
This is such a fun and happy range for your cheeky monkeys....lol!
Seriously though, Flying High is playful, fun and just oh-so-happy!
With vibrant reds, subdued blues, clouds, stars & airplanes alike who wouldn't LOVE creating with this collection!
But enough talk, let's have a look at my latest layout,
"My Boy: So Much Fun!"
2015-03-04 10.20.21
Told you it was fun and playful! (Just like Mister A for Awesome in the picture)
He is by far the happiest, most fun lil guy around & photographing him is such a joy!
I often call Mister A my superstar, so naturally, I was drawn to all the fabulous star patterned papers and elements.
Even the journal card and stickers feature the stars...Perfecto!!!
I know - these stickers rock!!!
And to complete my layout, the cork and wooden veneer stars are just sensational!
So very cool! I am so addicted to these embellies!!!
*Note: Title "My Boy" was created using wooden alphas from Typo*
Let's take a closer look.......
2015-03-04 11.58.50
Sometimes it really is all about the details.....
How cool is that veneer arrow with the star feature?
& how about those flair buttons?!!!
To show how fabulous those flair are, I framed them with a fussy cut journal card - adding just enough interest to my page without over-embellishing it.
Here's another close-up highlighting those fantastic stickers and star veneers.....
2015-03-04 11.59.54
Yep, seriously cool!
I love how this layout looks - it's all about my fun lil superstar!
I hope you enjoyed having a closer look at some of the awesome embellishments for this collection!
When it comes to scrapping the boys, Flying High has got you covered!
Thanks for joining me today,
I hope I have inspired you to get creating!

Kaisercraft : Furry Friends Collection

Hi Happy Arty Days Fans! 

Welcome back for more Kaisercraft inspiration with the brand new pets collection; 

Now I've got to be honest here - I am not a pet scrapper, 
(we have a very unphotogenic turtle, lol!)
 but truly, this collection is so cool it might just get me hooked!

Here's my creations using this fun new range.....

"My Best Friend" layout

Told you it was fun ! How cute is that fishbone patterned paper?!
& I love the Paper Blooms and Natural Epoxy Stickers - 
they really embellish the page perfectly!

Here's another cute cat one.....

"Love is a four-legged word" layout

A totally different look and feel to this page - but again, how cute?!
Those ticket stubs are the coolest stickers too!

Note: The cat photographs in the above layouts were courtesy of Facebook Group, "And My Cat" and are not my own.
(I've got the unphotogenic turtle, yeah!)

Next up, a couple cute dog pages....

"Paw Prints" layout

Oh! Another oh-too-cute page! 
Again, not my photo - this one came from an unknown source on Pinterest - but such a great image to create with!
Perhaps my most favourite item in this enitre collection - the paw print clear stamp!
That stamp is just totally awesome!
Infact, I've used it again on my next layout too.....

"It's a Dog's Life" 8.5 x 11" layout

How fun are these pages?! If you have a pet, you need this collection!

More stamp awesomeness, fun stickers and a cool decorative die too! 
Oh, & this photo is one of mine - a super happy friend of ours at school pick up, lol!

And just because I do actually love cats, one last creation.....

"Cats Rule" Frame

Purrrfect indeed!

Even though I had very limited photos to showcase this fabulously fun new collection,
I hope I have inspired you to capture your favourite
Furry Friends
and scrap them too!
