Madam Boutique

Thought I'd better drop in and share my projects for Madame Boutique...

This is a gorgeous vintage range, what works perfectly for a lot of projects.

Being such a heritage range, I really couldn't resist scrapbooking a photo of my Grandmother.
And here are some details...

I've teamed the papers with the new diecut Collectables and then added some of the roses and crochet flowers. Really Kaisercraft produce everything you could possibly want to create a layout like this!

My other project is a heritage box. This was an old tea box a friend sent me quite a while ago. I've created mini albums to go in the box that will hold details of dh's and my family trees as a permanent record for the kids.

Now those of you who went to Hyden, might have seen me playing with this box, trying to get a crackle finish. Well, let me just say the crackle finish just would not work for me... and neither did the paint!
So as a solution, I covered the sides with texture paste so I had a lovely textured finish, and added vine detail to the corners. Truely I love the way it turned out.

The albums have all been made of chipboard, and the divider pages will be printed out on the computer so I can add them to the book.

It's been a busy month for me this month, so hopefully I will be back soon with a few more shares and hopefully a tutorial!
Have a great weekend...

Merry Melody

This month Kaiser has brought out a third range... just papers and stickers, and even though at first look they are Christmas themed, the possibilities really are endless.

For example, I used the music notes side of the papers and created a mini album that is attached to a CD to showcase all of my favourite music.

This type of thing happens when you start sorting out your iPod playlist for your favourites... there's over a 1000 songs on my favourites list, so that got me to wondering which songs were special to me. Even then I found it very hard to narrow it down which means that there'll be more than 1 CD in the case... lol

But onto the album...

and the inside...

Why not duck over to the Kaisercraft blog and check out what the other girls have made!

I can say it's been a very very busy couple of weeks!

Kaiser projects... work... the internet going down... and to top it off I got the flu!

But here I am to share my projects for this month for one of the new ranges at Kaisercraft... Cock-A-Doodle-Doo!

This really is a fun range, great for lots of different things, especially farm projects and also layouts on our furry friends like I did!

This first layout is of Jonathan with mum and dad's old blue heeler Radar! I've had these photos sitting here for ages and these papers were perfect!

And with their new ranges, Kaiser have released diecuts. These are great value and are so easy to work with too! I couldn't resist using them on this page of Sally.

And for my off-the-page project with this range I decided to have some fun and create a 3D picture with papers and diecuts.

The diecuts are so cute it makes it so easy to create this bit of artwork!

I'll be back this weekend to share my Madame Boutique projects and also Merry Melody!
