Silly Jumpers – Home for Christmas

Hi Everyone,

Linda here with another layout using the Kaisercraft Home for Christmas collection.IMG_9108 smallI began this one with Laurel inking around the edge with Black Soot Distress ink.

Three strips of Season 3″ were cut following the woodgrain pattern, 1 at 11 1/2″ and 2 at 9 1/2″ into which I cut a tail. These were place vertically onto the base evenly with the outside edges 1″ from the side.

A strip from Mistletoe was cut approximately 2 1/2 ” deep using the crossword squares as a guide and ensuring the word “love” was included. I trimmed around this with a craft knife to allow it to sit over my photograph and place onto the base 4″ from the top. Next a strip 2″ wide of Eggnog was placed underneath. My main photograph is 5 1/4″ x 4″ and is matted onto Forest Kaisercard. I placed this to the left hand side allowing enough boxes for me to write “Jumpers”.  I also cut enough boxes for “Silly” and added this above. It’s very versatile as you can create any text you like.

IMG_9112 smallI cut two other photographs to 1 3/4″ square, stuck them onto the some tags from the Tag Pack and placed these to the right along with another tag to which I added some Natural Lace and a hessian heart from The Collectibles.

IMG_9111 smallOn the sticker sheet in this collection is a fabulous spray of Poinsettias which I placed under the photos which I layered with lots of blooms and leaves from Poinsettia paper and some mounting foam – ideal for cutting to size.

IMG_9110 smallA couple of foliage stickers from the sheet were also added and Gold Stickles to the flower centres.  A cut-off strip was added to the top right raised with mounting foam too plus some Red Pearls on the corner of the photograph to finish.

Pop back later in the week for some more fabulous designs from the team.

Take care
