Kaisercraft Design Team 2015 Entry

It has been an AMAZING year on the Kaisercraft Contributing Design Team 2014/ is seriously THE best fun for anyone who LOVES Kaisercraft - that is ME!!
I find that the deadlines to create projects for the blog, the Workshop magazine and for CHA 2015 made me think outside the square, and to show how versatile each and every collection can be...
...but now the call has gone out for some new ladies to join the team and also for some of us who'd like to continue our journey...

The requirements are to create "a Layout, a Beyond the Page/Altered Item and a Mixed Media item or Card."

So this is what I've created -

TYSON memorial frame
My Brother-in-law lost his pet dog last year and I've procrastinated about creating a frame for him - I just wanted to do their relationship justice and provide him with a lasting memory - I was going to use the photo with last months "Furry Friends" collection but then the 'call' came and I hoped it would be a simple but respectful frame to hang in his home (he hasn't seen it yet, so fingers crossed he likes it?) I was able to include Tyson's collar and tags and my favourite photo printed in black & white as well as one when he was a puppy.

Kaisercraft products - Large Frame, CB150 Uppercase alpha chipboard, CB153 Corrugated card, CB152 Cork sheet, FL305 Wood flourish 'Frames', SS277 Sticker sheet 'dog'.
Other - store bought photo frame simply covered with crackle paint. 

"Remember this Moment, Forever" Layout

This photo of our two Daughters a couple of years ago is still one of my favourites!
It would of been easy to use any of the patterned papers to create a beautiful layout BUT I have only used a little black & white cardstock to die cut some doilies, the title and leaves!
Kaisercraft has the most fabulous designs of DIES being released that co-ordinate with the collections AND April has the release of TEN NEW MISTS...they are so shimmery and such lovely colours, that I thought I'd just use them...with some paper blooms and a little wood (as I think everything needs a little Wood Flourish!)

Kaisercraft products - CB154 Chipboard, T608 Honeycomb, KM110 Pink, KM109 Red, KM106 Orange, KM103 Yellow, KM104 Lime Green, KM105 Turquoise, KM106 Denim, CD102 Licorice, CD101 Coconut, FL406 Vines, DD504 DOlies, DD500 Script Words, F667 Mini blooms 'Coral', F648 'Sea Breeze, F650 'Green' F663 'Hot PInk' F627 'Coconut', CS890 Dictionary Meanings, CS154 Film Edges, FL474 Bees, EM926 Lace pack 'White', ST916 Delicate words, DD516 'Vines'.
Other - Derivan 'Gesso' to cover and seal the chipboard, Modelling paste with the Honeycomb template & edges and some Ink for stamping.

White and Gold Tag

Yes, I could have created a card - easy! But when I was going through my stash of Wood Flourishes, I came across the 'Door Frame' and thought it would be perfect as a big tag...which could then be added to a layout? Then I limited myself to just "White and Gold"... and this is what I created...

Kaisercraft products - FL528 Door frame, PS398 Polka dot Glitter, EM926 Lace pack 'white', KM102 Antique Gold, DD102 Mannequin, DD306 Keys & Locks, F627 Paper Blooms 'White', All that Glitters, FL434 Bows, DD522 Berry Vine.
Other - Gold embossing powder for the key and lock, and Gold Kindyglitz for all those dots!

I just want to wish everyone who has poured their hearts into creating some beautiful projects for a chance to be chosen on the Kaisercraft Design Team all the very best...and of course, we are adding pages to our albums for the generations to come, so we all win!!
