Hello, Karen here with my third project using Kaisercraft’s Starry Night collection. This range has a navy and creamy grey pallet with gold foil highlights and is just perfect for a Christmas Album. At the moment, I am totally besotted with Travellers Notebooks and decided that I would use that size for my album. I cut 16 pieces of card measuring 4.5 x 8 and punched them with a two hole punch – just an ordinary office one, nothing fancy. I have an A5 ringbinder, from The Range, which I am going to cut down to fit my pages.
I have used the Metallic Number Sheet for the numbers and a parcel tag (also from The Range), cut to 4ins tall on each page. All patterned paper added to the tags measures 2in x 3in.
I cut a piece of Radiant, 7.5ins x 3.5ins and added to one of my black pages. Onto my tag I added a piece of music paper measuring 2in x 3in and one of the phrases, from the 6.5 x 6.5 pad. To the right of this I placed a flower cut from Daring, a holly leaf from the Collectables and two pieces of gold bling strip.
This time I cut a piece of Magic 7.5 ins x 3.5 ins and added to the adjoining page. I added a piece from the 6.5 x 6.5 pad to a tag along with a number two pieces from the Collectables and a sticker from the Sticker Book.
Again I cut a piece of paper 7.5in x 3.5in and this time I used Glowing, after adding a piece of paper to my tag, form the 6.5 x 6.5 pad I used the Starry Night stamp set and gold ink to stamp the holly, added two stickers from the Sticker Book and the gold lines, also from the Sticker Book.
After adding a piece of Glowing to my page I stamped a Poinsettia using the same stamp set and ink as I used above, adding Deep Yellow gems to the centre of the flower, added a phrase and sticker from the Sticker Book and die cut two flourishes using a sheet from the Gold and Silver Foil Paper pad.
I started by cutting a piece of paper from the 6.5 x 6.5 pad and added to the centre of my page. In the top left and bottom right I added a flower which I fussy cut from Daring paper. I topped my tag with a tag from the Collectables pack and a sticker from the Sticker Book. I added Deep Yellow gems to the centre of the flowers.
Again I used a piece from the 6.5 x 6.5 pad cut to 3.5 ins wide. My tag was embellished with a star and Circle from the Collectables pack, a scalloped square from the 6.5 x 6.5 pad and a border sticker from the Sticker Book.
This time I used a piece of Modern as the base of my page with a border sticker from the Sticker Book at the top and bottom. To my tag I added a large holly leaf from the Collectables pack and a couple of phrase stickers from the Sticker Book.
The base of this page was Magic with a border from the Sticker Book at the bottom. My tag was embellished with two poinsettias made using the Starry Night stamp set and gold ink . I added a pennant from the Collectables pack and a small phrase from the 6.5 x 6.5 pad. I added Deep Yellow gems to the centre of the flowers.
I started by using a piece of Striking as my base and then to my tag I added three strips and a banner from the Sticker Book and three little trees from the Wooden Flourish pack. The number was backed by a circle sticker.
A piece of Modern was used as the base with a border of poinsettias cut from a page from the 6.5 x 6.5 pad. I added a small piece of Magic to my tag with a phrase cut from one of the pages from the 6.5 x 6.5 pad, the circle underneath the number was also from this pad. I used a Decorative Die to cut my poinsettia from the Gold and Silver Foil Paper pad and added a Deep Yellow gem to the centre.
I love my little Christmas mini and can’t wait to make some more pages. Keep an eye on the Merly Crop Facebook page for the next set of pages. I may even make a little ‘walk through’ video once I have finished it.
