White with One - Grape

Last day of the month, so just squeezing this one in...


I started with a couple of sheets of cardstock - tore the purple and adhered the paper doiley on the right - The fabulous Janet Bott of The Resin Rainbow had this bag full of GRAPE resin pieces included this sheet of lattice with the inner shape too, so I used this as a layer and added some at the side of the photo and another cluster to the top left to balance the page  - there is also a bunch of buttons, leaves, flowers and even a cute paperclip to choose from ... how good is that!!
Finished embellishing with a bunch of Manor House Creations flowers, some beaded twigs and some lace from Bella Paperie - the title is a Family Charming word from Tracy's My2Angels website - so easy to order!!

This is the gorgeous Natalie.... who will become a big sister in the New Year!!

Kaisercraft - MY DAY - Friday's are Fantastic..

I wont mention the date if you don't....
But I will mention how Fantastic these TWO collections released this month are!!
With the Red, White and Navy of
All of the Nautical imagery of ships, fancy knots and Anchors... it was perfect to create a layout for this photo from a few years ago - from fussy cutting the ship, to the rope paper which matched the seats to 'recycling' the red heart... makes me smile!

Did you see that big red heart - keep scrolling and you will see where I've recycled it from..
I always like a little challenge, so when I saw all the RED nautical images in the collectables I figured I could layer them into a triangular shape to represent a Christmas Tree - I have someone in mind for this card!

The Red Heart was cut from the paper after adhering to the front of the heart... bit of a bonus, I thought! So, I chose this photo from a Family Wedding to incorporate into the heart... hope the happy couple will like this one?

And then the delicate beauty of
By covering each plank in a different pattern, and choosing all the 'blues' it has made this Wall Art neutral but girly... a great gift!! I even used the Embossing folder and stamped with it into the modelling paste (be sure to wash any paste out from the grooves before it dries!!)

I really liked the navy blue accents of this collection, and although there is quite a few feminine papers, I thought by choosing the darker prints I would have a good base of a card for a man. I think the touch of torn cork sheet adds to the masculinity.

Green is one of my most favourite colours, so it was easy to pick them all out and match them with the whites for this photo of my Grandparents.
