I'm back with some more exciting happy, scrappy news!
If you've visited my blog recently you may have noticed my application for the 2014/15 Kaisercraft DT.
Well guess what? I made it through to the second round! I was so excited to receive the email and kept checking my inbox over and over and over...I noticed I had an email in my junk folder and there it was! LOL
Kaisercraft sent the second rounders two, not even released yet, paper collections and they are both absolutely GORGEOUS!
Both totally right up my alley.
We were to create a minimum of 2 layouts, one with each collection.
The first collection is just so, so pretty. In fact, it's just stunning and definitely on the top of my new favourite list.
I can't tell you the name of it yet but by looking at this layout I'm sure you'll agree that it's just divine:
Isn't it beautiful? I just adore it.
So I decided to make a step card with it as well. I love these cards but had never made one before but this paper collection is just perfect for what I had in mind.
This is the side view of my card:
I'll definitely be using these papers again to create more beautiful things.
The other paper collection I was sent is Christmas themed and again, just gorgeous.
The colours are just beautiful and perfect for my style of Christmas creating.
Here's my layout:
Such lovely, vintage hues in this range. The photo is of my husband and our first grandchild just after he was born.
For something a little different I had a play with this collection and a mini canvas and created something a little whimsical:
Something cute to put on my mantelpiece at Xmas time...or perhaps a handmade gift for a loved one.
I also made a Xmas tag but I forgot to take a photo before I packed it in the box ready to send off to Kaisercraft as part of my finished application. Oops!
I was in such a hurry to get my entry packed and sent off in anticipation of being one of the lucky ones chosen for the 2014/15 DT!
I just know I'll be sitting on top of my inbox for the next couple of weeks and I'll be sure to check each and every email including my junk mail!
I have everything crossed, fingers and toes, that my entries wow the judges enough to be selected for the new design team.
Wish me luck!
I'll be back soon to let you know how I went.
