Chase Rainbows - Kaisercraft

Hi everyone… thanks for taking the time
to stop by my blog today, and today I am sharing my projects
that I have created for my Design Team work for Kaisercraft 
using one of the latest April collections.

"Chase rainbows" paper collections,

These are such bright and fun coloured papers.
I love the stamp set in this collection too.

Go to the Kaisercraft blog for more inspirational ideas and projects from
the rest of the Design Team.

I created two layouts and a card…

"Special Times" 
This photo was taken in St Mark Square - Venice, very recently.

"Making Memories"
Burano Island  - just a 45 min boat ride from Venice, every house on the island is painted in a very bright colour, each different to the next one.
The reason being is that when the fisherman came home a little drunk
at night, they would know which house was their house. :)

and a simple card   --  "Love this LIFE"

Until next time, thanks for looking and leaving your comments
I truly appreciate them so much :)
Have a good week.

Cheers xx :) Adriana

Opera Garnier in Paris

Hi everyone
thanks for stopping by today
just a very quick post, of my latest
 projects for Kaisercraft which were 
on the Kaisercraft blog this week,
  along with many other talented Designers.

Showcasing the latest paper collection called
"On Stage".
These papers have a very vintage feel to them,
Great for all your concert memories and school plays.
Here are my 2 layouts, I decided to scrap
the "Opera Garnier" in Paris. This theatre is such a magical place.
Inside is so amazing, so glorious and rich in colour, with reds and golds.
Charles Garnier designed it in 1861.

 I have posted some other photos here at the
end of this post, if you are interested.

This place was the setting for the film and book of
 "Phantom of the Opera", do you recognise it?

I bit of a project life type page, great for multi photos.

Here are some more photos of this amazing place.

the inside staircase 

In side the top foyer

That's my daughter, as you can see it is
rather huge.

Foyer outside the auditorium.

Velvet boxes inside the auditorium.
I love the red and golds, so rich
and luxurious.

Until next time, have a good weekend.

Cheers xx :) Adriana

Layout & Card for Couture Creations

Hi there everyone, today I am sharing 
a layout and card using 
the brand new release diecut collection called

Here is my layout….."Treasure the Time"
Using the papers from Couture Creations - Vintage Rose collection

The photograph is from our recent trip to Paris - hmm sigh!!!(yes, I still
keep dreaming about this place, so many memories)

1. I started with some Kraft card stock for the background and stamped and inked the edges then added some papers from the  Vintage Rose collection in the centre of the page,  I also inked the edges of the papers, now I will be focusing in particular the
small cluster of branch with leaves that I created and placed on the bottom left of
my page.


2. Cut several leaves with the "STRAWBERRY LEAF" C0724115 
and corrugated card board. I love how all the leaves have
the bubbled textures on them. Also cut 4 or 5 thin strips from the corrugated card.

3. With the Couture Creations 2 Way Glue Pen, glue
down and create a branch or twig like effect with the thin strips of card.
Then glue on leaves at each end. The Couture Creations Glue pen
are fabulous for small tiny area in which you need a bit of glue.

4. Dab some white gesso or white paint over the leaves and leave to dry.

Now you branch and leaves are ready to use for your project.

4. Adhered your photo with 2 layers of Vintage Rose collection papers and a bit of texture paste and stencil around the edges of the layout.
Also decorate some Imaginairum Designs chipboard, adding some Gltizing Glamour Glitter Glue - Gold  and Burgundy on top of these chipboards.

Also cut some  "AUTUMN LEAF"   C072411 die cut with
Vintage Rose collection paper  and inked the edges and
place them in the centre of my branch/leaf twigs, a bit of twine in the centre
and add your flower.

add the quote from theVintage Rose collection
 "Treasure the Time love the Moments"

Couture Creation products 

Now also using the same method with the leaves and corrugated card stock 
I also created a card "Best Wishes"
