Kaiser sketch

The new sketch is up on the Kaisercraft blog and this week was mine and Christine's turn - and I had to laugh when I saw Christine's as we did pretty similar pages!LOL. We must both love Devonshire!

If you do a LO based on any of the sketches and upload to the Kaisercraft gallery you can win a fabulous prize pack!

just a couple..

Just one for Claire's album of her and my mum on New Year's Eve - using Webster's Pages, Jenni Bowlin Butterflies (LURVE these!!LOL), Cosmo alphabet and some more Kaisercraft Devonshire embellishment pack.(all available at Anna's Craft too - with exception of that exact piece of Websters' - but there's some really similar stuff in the store.)

Here's one using some Jillibean Soup - available at Anna's Craft Cupboard

Honest to god, you have to check out the store at the moment as she has got so much new CHA stuff it - I myself am avoiding it - I'm supposed to be saving for a house!LOL

Kaisercraft LO's

Here's my LO's from the January Q3 releases - the "Made With Love" and "Shaken Not Stirred" ranges.
This is using the Made with Love papers, die-cuts, alphabet stickers, chipboard alphabet, embellishment pack (felt thingies and ribbon)and stamps ("love")

And this is my "Shaken Not Stirred" LO using the papers, die-cuts, embellishment pack (brads), alphabet stickers, chipboard alphabet from that range.

And remember - Anna's Craft Cupboard sells everything in both these ranges as well as the new Feb releases "Devonshire" and "La Di Da".
And can I just say that Devonshire is my ALL TIME fave release from Kaisercraft - absolutely beautiful and I'm completely in love with the embellishment pack. But you are not allowed to go and buy them all before I put in another order at Anna's! LOL

One last LO...

from the "Afterthoughts" kit I was sent from Scrapbooking From Scratch which you can find HERE.
I just love how versatile this kit is!

Kaisercraft Drawers

Now I must say - I was pleasantly surprised by these drawers - I thought the actually drawers were small-ish from the pictures I'd seen on the internet, but let me tell you - they are a decent size.
As you can see I've labelled them and honestly I would not fill the drawers with the butterflies and hearts EVER. And if measurements mean nothing to you (like me - I need 'visuals') - for example I have 3 rolls of 7Gypsies gaffer tape in one drawer and could fit 3 more - so one drawer can fit 6 rolls of gaffer tape!
My mother-in-law and sister-in-law were there when I was making them and they were just as impressed with them and are going to buy some. The cool thing too - is that they would stack on top on one really easily and I want more so I can do this!

I've decorated mine with the Shaken Not Stirred Kaisercraft range - I love the deep red in this range and also the grey graphy type papers.

A new month, a new kit from SFS

This month Peta from Scrapbooking From Scratch was kind enough to let me play with her latest kit which you can find HERE.
These are a couple of the pages I've done with it - I created 5 pages with the kit with heaps to spare so it's excellent value for just $30.
