Lesley said, “These cute little Christmas themed stamps are perfect for creating unique Xmas cards. I have stamped the smaller Holly stamp around the edge of the card and then coloured with water colour pencils and red kindy glitz. I have cut out the middle. I stamped the ‘A very merry Christmas’ stamp onto red transparency, cut it out and hung it in the middle of the card.”

Layouts

Do the Christmas twist

September 24, 2010

One of the things that really captured my attention with the Be Merry range were the great neutral colours used throughout the collection.  I began to wonder whether it was possible to create a non-Christmas themed layout using this range.

I concentrated on the neutral colours in the range and added a few touches of red to liven things up.

Carefully chosen embellishments complete the layout.

**************************

Karen says ” Like Kerryn, I too saw the potential for non-Christmas themed layouts with both of these ranges. I chose to use the “Tis the season ” range for my layout. These photos of my youngest son are so funny. Every time he sees the camera he does this awful “smile”. I have so many photos of him doing it.We now tell him “No Harry, dont smile, just look” I wanted to do this layout to remember this gorgeous age…..

Making minis

September 22, 2010

The “BER” season is here and it means Christmas is just around the corner. So today we are here sharing with you 2 mini albums using the Stocking Garland.

Kerryn : I love the new Kaisercraft Stocking Garland but really lack a suitable place to display it.  When I had another look at it though, I realised it would make a great mini album.  I have taken out one of the stockings so that it wasn’t too thick for the album rings and have only used a cuff on the front and back of the album.

The Be Merry collection was perfect for these photos of my daughter’s first Christmas.

I kept the embellishments to a minimum and have included plenty of journalling.

Mini albums are a great way of capturing those precious memories that enables you to use lots of photos to tell the story.

*****************************************************

LG: Like Kerryn, I thought that the Stocking Garland would make a perfect Mini Album for some photos that my family took last Christmas. Our christmas color theme was almost the same colour as the ‘Tis the Season line so I decided to work with that.

I just love the vintage feel of the ‘Tis the Season collection. I added a lot of crackle paint on this project to add texture.

Here are the inside pages of my mini album:
