Here is the sketch for you <3 (sorry about the extra colour box)Sketch 4 June

‘Love’ Layout by Hetty Hall

Kaisercraft Materials Used: Miss Empire Collection – Dynasty (P1206), Domain (P1205), Ancestry (P1208), Provincial (P1207), Collectables (CT759), Rub Ons (RB992), Rub Ons – Love (RB122), Wooden Flourishes – Word Flags Unique (FL493).

Hetty says: “Great sketch, loved working with it. I usually only use one photo on a layout so what really great to be able to use multiple photo’s. These are of my one and only nephew, he is so darn cute, love scrapping his pictures. Even though the Miss Empire range is very feminine you will find plenty of papers and embellishments suitable for boy layouts as you can see.”

True Romance with the Michelle’s.

June 14, 2013

Gulp … have to say this collection is beyond gorgeous.  Honestly it truly is! This collection is dreamy.  Think teals, pinks, greens and a little burgundy … ooh-la-la and aptly named “True Romance”.

Easel card by Michelle Frisby

Kaisercraft Materials Used : PP906 paper pad, CT760 collectables, foam adhesive

Extras : dies.

Michelle says: “With this stunning collection there was always going to be an easel card, if not more than one.

Happiness by Michelle Frisby

Kaisercraft Materials used : P1213 Day Dream, P1212 Adore, FL439 wooden flourishes – flourish hearts, CT760 collectables, PP906 paper pad

Extras :  book, muslin, flowers, modelling paste, paint, strings of pearls, punch, gesso, mini tags, doilies.

Michelle says: “ I’ve played and played with paint, gesso, modelling paste and the papers in the True Romance collection to get this final product.  Ages ago I found some lidded books at our local Spotlight and I saved them for a rainy day and just the right collection … well the rainy day has been and the right collection was True Romance.  I wanted to make something special for a very cute couple who will be celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary next month.  The mini album fits nice and snug in the book and the idea is to have this gift sitting on their shelf at home. Hopefully it will be a special keepsake for them treasure for many years to come.”
