“Joy to the World” Layout by Sandie Edwards

Saturday Sketch - Sandie Edwards - LO #1

Kaisercraft Materials Used: P1283 Santa Claus, P1287 Christ Kindle, P1290 Babbo Natale, P1285 Kris Kringle, P1284 Grandfather Frost, PS305 Sinterklass, CS876 Crackle Clear Stamp, SS196 Sticker Sheet Numbers, CT767 Collectables, PP913 Paper Pad, FL560 Banners, F633 Olive Paper Blooms, F650 Olive Mini Blooms.

Other: Punches, Paper Lace Doily, Ribbon and Mist.

Sandie Says: “I adapted the sketch a little, by incorporating two larger photographs instead of the 3 smaller within the sketch. Ribbon with long tendrils was used in place of the Christmas banner at the top, and the postcard was added as a hidden journaling pocket”.

“Live, Love, Laugh” by Lori Williams



Kaisercraft Materials Used: FL481 Live, Love, Laugh Wooden Flourishes, P1305 Plum Pudding, P1303 Jolly man, P1304 Reindeer, PP915 Paper Pad, P1302 BonBon, SS199 Sticker Sheet, CT769 Collectables

Other Products : Bakers Twine, Ink, Embossing Powder

Lori says: “I did a bit of a different take on my picture also, instead of three different pictures I did one picture 4 x 6 and cut it into three equal strips.  Between Sandi’s, the sample and my take it gives you a lot of inspiration for picture placement. “

We cannot wait to see your interpretations xx
