Hi Happy Arty Fans!

Welcome back for more Kaisercraft delciousness!
 I am so delighted to be sharing my DT Finalist creations with you! 
I LOVE being on this team and I hope that I can continue with Kaisercraft - they truly rock!!!
But enough of my nervous chatter - you know how much I want this!
* Love my Kaisercraft *
Let's get straight into the good stuff.....

So Kaisercraft has sent all the finalists 2 brand spanking new, STUNNING & not yet released collections to create a minimum one layout & one card with. 
OMGoodness - you're going to fall in love with them!

The first collection that I am sharing with you is ....

Ma Cherie

Here's my mixed media layout, "Friends Forever"

I did warn you this collection is DIVINE!!!
(& how lovely are those two in the pic?)

Such pretty, pretty papers & works so very well with all of Kaisercraft's mixed media products.
Fabulous templates, cool stamps and my fave new product, KAISERmists!
But there's more...

Awesome clear stickers, paper blooms & wooden flourishes......

& a few fussy cut butterflies adorn this beauty too!
Prettiness is Ma Cherie!

So precious. 
Captures the beauty and innocence of my gorgeous subject too well.
I love this layout - more of those fussy cut butterflies but also, more of those far too pretty papers!

My final layout with the Ma Cherie collection has a more contemporary style.... 
"Remember This Moment"

Aren't those patterned papers so elegant?!
These papers truly make 'shades of grey' something classy to talk about!
I love those bouquets too!

Belle indeed! On her way to visit Santa - she was sooooo excited!
And how exciting is this paper?!!!
I love the non-conventional colours - so pretty and so Northern Hemisphere!

I absolutely fell in love with this paper - 
it is just the most feminine and pretty Christmas paper I have ever seen!
And the grey woodgrain patterned paper is a perfect balance to all those vintage roses.

A couple of coconut paper blooms, lace and a pearl brad add to this simple but oh so lovely Christmas page.

My final layout with Silver Bells has a super fun and cute feel to it....

"Love Life"

I love how playful and fun this page turned out! Because afterall, Christmas in our family is all about these two crazy kids & the joy they share.
How cool is that teal snowflake paper?!

Here's a little look at my Christmas cards too......

  8. Wow! Gorgeous!!! You have showcased these collections beautifully! (As usual - your projects are always so inspiring.) I love all the butterflies in the first collection (am such a sucker for butterflies). I admire how effortlessly you can switch between mixed media and clean & simple styles. I am not usually a fan of Christmas collections, but this one looks so pretty! I love the pink & blue in it. I adore the layout where you have mounted the pic on the doiley like a frame - so cute!
    I wish you all the best of luck with your application, but I don't think you will need it, I think Kaisercraft would be nuts not to keep you on!
