My Year, My Story – March Birthday.


Hi Everyone, Happy New Year!

I’ve had the pleasure of playing with Kaisercraft’s My Year, My Story collection this month, the colours are beautiful and fresh – a joy to use.

I chose to these photos of my daughters birthday last year so began with the calendar section from Lilac. Six of the papers have these calendars on them so with the Paper Collection you could easily create a complete year.

IMG_9837 smallThe sticker sheet has the months so March was added to the top along with “2015” stamped. I then cut elements from Minty and Raspberry, roughly arranging them onto a piece of Coconut Kaisercard.

IMG_9838 smallI inked all the edges with either Black Soot or Seedless Preserve Distress inks, matted the photographs onto Lilac Weave Kaisercard, and began sticking them down with a tape pen.

IMG_9843 smallElements from the Collectables were then added – you can see that I placed on over my original stamped date here, so, I just re-stamped it 🙂   I used a  round sticker from the Sticker Sheet to add “birthday” to the 9th and then die cut a scribble from a Sizzix set (trimmed out the middle) to look like I had circled the date.

IMG_9845 smallI also decided to add the word “Hello” from the stamp set so placed it after the papers were stuck in place. Another sticker was added here too.  Tabs are from The Captured Moments range – pocket stickers in Black.

IMG_9842 smallThe thin strips are the cut-offs from the 12×12″ sheets to which I added banners from the Collectables, along with the “just perfect” banner, message, hearts and camera die-cuts.

Check back later in the week for some more inspiration from the DT, until then,

Take care,
