Le Chateau – Home Decor-BTP clock and a layout

June 24, 2010

Isn’t the Le Chateau collection just soooo fabulous?! I just love the rich textures and patterns in this line. Definitely a fave of mine for home decor projects. The contrast of the light blue with the black is a surprisingly different color combo, but with the addition of the rich golds to tie it all together, it just creates such a warm, homey feel, which I simply LOVE. I know I say this every time KaiserCraft comes out with a new collection, but this is my all-time fave collection! No, really!

So of course, it was an easy decision to use the Le Chateau collection for my BTP clock. And this clock is especially fun, with all the little windows to fill in with bits, baubles, photos, and other treasures. And BTW, this looks absolutely FAB hanging on my wall if I do say so myself. :)

“Le Chateau BTP clock” by Nancy Burke. Le Chateau collection papers, 6×6 paper pad, stamps, BTP clock, alpha stickers, wood flourishes, die cut elements, pearls, paper flowers, embellishment pack, black and brown ink, embossing powder, ribbon.  

And next up we have a simple design for a layout by Fran. Here’s what she says

“I love this photo of my Mum and my son reading together and knew I was a very sedate, calm sort of layout. The fresh white in the Le Chateau is a big favourite of mine, with the other colours of the collection looking so cute against it – the black and the pale blue giving the exact look I was after. And I must mention how much I LOVE the new wood flourishes – I think I’ve used nearly 3 complete packets so far!

And just for a little added interest to the page, I’ve applied a rub-on from the Le Chateau Collection and added some rhinestones to add some ‘sweetness’ to it. It is hard to tell in the top photo, so I’ve given you a close up.”
