Christmas Wreath – Home for Christmas

Hi Everyone,

Another layout today using the Home for Christmas range.

The die cut element with this collection is a lovely Holly Wreath  which I used as a base for this layout. IMG_8954smallI began with Decoration using the hessian effect side and raised the die cut on mounting foam. My photo is 4″ square, backed with Forest Kaisercard to create a small border, placed into the centre at a “jaunty” angle.

There are lots of lovely elements in The Collectables so I picked lots of foliage, decorative elements and round messages, inked some of the edges with Black Soot Distress ink, and set about added them to the wreath creating lots of dimension and interest with mounting foam.

IMG_8959 smallYou can see lots of layers below.

IMG_8958smallI added a large bow to the bottom right along with the die cut Poinsettias and gave them a liberal dusting of Stickles.

IMG_8956 smallI frosted lots of the berries and foliage with Diamond Stickles too.

IMG_8957smallTop right I added a message from the clear sticker sheet – Seasons Greetings.

And to finish a selection of Red Pearls dotted around.

Check back soon for more inspiration from the DT.

Take care,

Joy to the World using Home for Christmas.

Hi there!

This is the last layout using the lovely Home for Christmas Kaisercraft collection.

IMG_1960For a bright Christmassy look I used a sheet of Kaisercraft cardstock in Scarlet.   On top of the card I cut down a sheet of Pinecones paper and distressed the edges. A strip torn and distressed was added from a sheet of Season paper. I added the gorgeous Poinsettia sticker from the sticker sheet, and placed it at the top of the card and paper.  Cut in half and placed just under the Season strip is the Holly Wreath die -cut.

IMG_1966Around the sides of the  photo of my daughter and her presents, I placed two tags from the Home for Christmas Tag PackCollectables were mounted on to Mounting foam Tape to give the layout a dimensional look.  And for the final finish a lovely sprinkle of Pearls in Green and Red.

Hope you enjoy my post!

Christmas Feast – Home for Christmas.

Hello Everyone,

Linda here with some festive cheer!

I had the pleasure of working with the fabulous Kaisercraft Home for Christmas Collection this month.

IMG_8933smallI began with some Cookie Kaisercard and inked around the edges with Black Soot Distress ink.  I then took Pinecones and cut the strip from the top which is like a news headline, this was inked and put to one side for later. Using the text lines as a guide I cut 2 x 6cm strips. Eggnog, Sugar Plum and Season were trimmed the same. The lengths have been cut as 29.5, 25.5, 21.5, 17.5 & 13.5 to give the gradient. They were then stuck down left to right. My photo’s are 6x8cm and placed 3.5cm from the bottom of each strip.

The Tree from the Christmas Quarters Stencil was then placed bottom right, masked with some low tack tape with Texture paste scraped over. Once dried I replaced the mask then dusted the top with some Mowed Lawn Distress ink. Mustard Seed for the star. Pearls were added (the smallest size) as Baubles from Pearl,  Red & Copper.

IMG_8934smallI also added some Stickers from The Seasons Greetings clear sticker sheet.

IMG_8936smallAt the bottom of each strip I added a sentiment from either the Sticker Sheet or the Collectables, plus a couple above too.  Mounting foam adds the dimension. The strip I retained at the beginning from Pinecones was added the to top of the page.

IMG_8935smallA banner from The Collectables was placed top left with some ribbon hanging underneath. To these I attached more stickers from the Sticker Sheet which were mounted onto some punched mirri card circles like baubles. A tiny bow added at the top of each too.

Pop back soon for another fabulous project by the Design Team.

Take Care,

Holly jolly Fun – Home for Christmas

Hi there!

Debs here with another Home for Christmas layout.

IMG_1956For this layout I used a sheet of Forest weave cardstock.   From the Paper Pad I cut five 3×3 squares.  I then put them side by side.  By the side of the photo is a decorative square cut  from the Warm wishes paper.  Again from the Paper Pad, from a sheet of the lovely paper I used the Modern Doily Decorative Die.  The die cut was cut in half and placed top and bottom of my layout.  A boarder from the Sticker sheet was placed across the top of my photo.  Collectables were used and given an added lift with Mounting foam Tape.  From left over Forest Cardstock, I cut out three Vines from the Vines Decorative Die.  To give the layout a little sparkle on the Vines, Ranger Ice Stickles in Gold Ice, was used.

IMG_1958By the side of the photo is a decorative square cut from the Warm wishes paper, and on this my photo was dated using Black Dymo Alpha Stickers. As usual a lovely scattering of Pearls in Green.  I love the way all the greens, reds and gold of the papers and collectables, add a beautiful Christmas compliment to the photo of my daughter on Christmas Day.

Hope you enjoy my post!

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

Christmas Moments

Hi there!

This month I got to use the lovely Christmas collection Home for Christmas. I had some lovely photos of my daughter as a baby on her first Christmas to use.

IMG_1969I used Kaisercraft Kraft card, this was sprayed with KaiserMist Antique Gold and Red.

IMG_1894I then spread using a palette knife, Texture Paste through the  Christmas Quarters  stencil, I spread a thickish amount and left it to air dry.  The effect from using the sprays first is that you can see it through the Texture Paste, so it doesn’t just look flat and white.

IMG_1896A circle was cut and distresses from a sheet of Sugar Plum.  I inked the edges in Kaisercraft mini ink pad-Vine.  A smaller circle was also cut and inked from the Laurel paper, I   Distressed and inked the edges with Tim Holtz Mini Distress in Aged Mahogany.  Further circles were cut out using paper from the Paper Pad.  The photo of my daughter was also cut into a circle and added to the layers of circles.  The Christmas Trees were cut out from the Decoration paper, inked and raised with Mounting foam Tape.

IMG_1953Stars were inked from the Sticker sheet and added to the Christmas trees.  The garland was also from the sticker sheet.  The strip at the top of the layout is cut from the papers and the quote is also a strip cut down.  As usual a lovely sprinkle of Pearls in Green and Red were added to finish the layout.

Hope you enjoy my post!
