Off the page projects - CHRISTMAS

Just a quick post showing a few "Off the Page" projects for Christmas using Kaisercraft products.

Kylie, the manager from the ETC - Kaisercraft shop here in Adelaide has asked to
me create a few "Off the page" Projects, which I want to show you.
I created a Christmas Wreath using the latest christmas range of "Dec25 Collection"
and MDF Products.

Over at "White with 1" this month challenge is

White (as per usual) + Bright colour + Flowers

I had these blue coloured flowers -
patina, sea breeze and soft blue,
in my stash of supplies in a box.
It is not a colour I use at all, but thought it would look good
doing this challenge with this palette of
bright blues and white background.
here is a link to White with 1 blog
have a look at the other design teams layouts.
here is my take on the challenge titled  -  YOU

White + Bright (blue) + Flowers challenge - November 2011
YOU - are simply ONE of a KIND.
Imaginarium designs chipboards - picket fence and alphas

I used a small flower stamp and distress stain (broken china) to create that stamped effect .
Some of the flowers look a bit green in the photo but they are definitely blue.
Thanks for looking
have a good day

"Each night I wish upon a star,
and hope my dreams come true,
Although I wish for many things,
I mostly wish for you".

Over at "The Color room"  - the new Palette #85 has been posted.
The Colours are Raspberry, Fushia, White and Sunflower.
These colours are not my usual colours that I use in my scrapbooking,
so it was a real challenge for me.
I guess that is why I love doing these challenges, when I can,
it pushes you to do more that just scrap a page or card.
You have to challenge yourself and do things outside your comfort zone.
The sketch was very inspirational as well.
Thanks to  "The Color Room" designers and team,
for all your inspirational colour palettes and sketches.
The Word for the title was inspired by
"The Bird is the Word blog - WISH"
Their blogs are here - please visit them

I used texture paste, inks and paint to create a bit of dimension, on the page.
The photos of DD at the age of 3 years, very adorable at that age.
The yummy Flourishes and Alpha chipboards are from "Imaginarium Designs"

Bird is the word / TCR#84

I decided to combine two online challenges this week.
Loved the colour combination / palette on "The Color Room" #84
and I also used the word and sketch form "Bird is the Word"
challenge this month.  "ADORE"
check out their blogs here
The chipboards are from "Imaginarium Designs".

Bird is the word - ADORE
Imaginarium Designs Chipboards
My daughter & I have this little silly game we play, How much do I Love you,
when I saw the little chipboard of the little girl with her arms spread out wide,
it reminded me of her, saying those words
"I Love u this much, mummy".
But I love and adore her double as much .
Have a great week everyone
Thanks for looking.

Just adding this to this post on 12th Dec 2011, This layout which has the word  "ADORE" just won the feature of this challenge.  Thanks to the DT of "Bird is the word" for choosing my layout.
I am quietly excited about winning this challenge.... thanks for all your lovely comments.
