Home Again by Carta Bella - October Scrapshotz Kit

The colours of this kit are amazing. I loved the blue and the minty greens with all the white florals. Comfortable, cozy and homey. On this first layout, I showcased a black and white photo that co-ordinates really well with the patterns. A chipboard banner from the collection and a floral sticker along with a strip of washi balances the page.
This panoramic photo showcases our home and our family at play, I love that we can entertain ourselves at home! The pattern on the background paper is fun and playful and the large van sticker is  popped up and the mini florals are fussy cut and embellished with glossy accents.

To enhance the wooden embellishments, I used a white gel pen to highlight the blooms and a bit of gold Nuvo Midas touch. They took the gel really well and really stand out on my project.
This is the wall hanging that I created with a photo of my granddaughter for my entrance hall. I covered an ecterera tag with patterned paper and double matted the photo on it. The gold thickers and the wooden flowers from the kit are the perfect accent.
This layout was inspired by the Creative Scrapbooker Sketchy Challenge for October 2019. I loved the circular frames on the patterned paper, but some of the sayings weren't what I needed for this page, so I fussy cut some of the blank frames and used them for my journaling. The beautiful solid coloured paper included with the kit was the perfect backdrop. Once again, the gold thickers were great for the title.

Thanks for having a look at my kit projects.

Kaisercraft "Let It Snow" Christmas Cards

I picked up a few sheets of this beautiful paper and made an abundance of Christmas cards, with NO STAMPING!  Just a bunch of layers of the beautiful foiled papers with some silver foil cardstock and the sentiments from the All is Calm sheet and from the Cardstock Die Cuts. The only other supplies I added were some ribbon, twine, a few stickles and a lot of foam dots. Here are my cards.

The entire collection is amazing. It sparkles and shines and makes a very elegant Christmas card collection. Get yours at Scrapshotz today! Here's a link for you! Kaisercraft Let It Snow
