Hi everyone, Sonia here with the gorgeous new collection for April – High Tea. This collection will make anyone who loves shabby chic very happy indeed! It is a collection that has a beautiful white-washed colour palette with stunning floral images. The colours and softness of the images make it so easy to use for many occasions. I loved the floral images and the soft pinks / reds and immediately wanted to use some baby pictures of my daughter with a floral crown on her head.

I choose the gorgeous ‘Cup & Saucer’ (P2284) as my main background as it already has the most stunning, distressed look to it. I wanted to add a little more texture so I tore vertically down the paper between the white and green distressed parts and added in a strip of the Corrugated Cardstock (CB153)
To add extra dimension I also added in the stunning floral strip from the High Tea Sticker Sheet (SS336). The floral image can be used as one whole piece as I have here, or you can trim it to suit your page. By layering in these different textures you have a page that you just want to touch!
With this gorgeous paper I just had to use some of the Paper Blooms! The Olive and Dusty Pink Paper Blooms picked up the colour palette of High Tea perfectly! I fussy cut some of the Floral images from the ‘Devonshire’ paper (P2277) and mixed these in with the Paper Blooms
One of my favourite Dies is the Nesting Tag Die (DD518). For this layout I cut out a tag using the Die and the ‘Biscuit’ paper (P2278) and added a grommet and some Natural Twine (LDB1059)
One of my other favourite Kaisercraft products are the Clear Stickers. These are so versatile and if you love mixed media then you’ll be happy to know that they can be stuck over the top of all sorts of layers of mediums!!! Here I have used a quote from the ‘Life’ pack (ST928). These stickers can be trimmed to fit or mixed and matched to suit your project
I hope you love the High Tea collection as much as I do – it makes my shabby chic heart so happy to play with these fabulous papers and matching embellishments!
