Kaisercraft projects for December

Hi there everyone, in case you missed my blog post at the Kaisercraft Blog here it is….I am super excited about this month's Kaisecraft paper collection, so let's kick off today with some of my creations with 
"My Year, My story" & "Treasured Moments"
At the end of this post,  I have another tutorial
using some new products from Kaisercraft and Treasured Moments paper collection.

"My Year My story"

I am just loving all the wonderful Design team creations, using this wonderful and unique paper collections. 
They go so fabulously well with the new Kaisercraft Planners.
I decided to do something a little different to show you how versatile these papers are. I created a cover page, which will go so nicely in the front of a Scrapbook album and also I have created a project life pocket page.

In this "My Year, My story" PP986 paper pad are some white embossed papers together with some added spraying and misting with awesome Kaiser MISTS.
You can create a variety of unique papers to compliment 
your projects.

I sprayed a little blue and yellow Kaiser mists in the centre
paper "live every moment"
and sprayed misted the honeycomb design paper with Orange & yellow Kaiser mists.
Adding some fun and funky paper collectables CT845 around the edges.
This is the first page cover for my next scrapbook album

"live every moment love everyday"

Kaisercraft materials used : My Year, My story PP986 paper pad, CT845 Collectables, Kaisercraft Mists KM108 Orange, KM103 Yellow, KM106 Denim.

My next creation is a Project Life type page using the same paper collection. This is a little bit out of my comfort zone, I don't do project life, but I thought I go it a go. Using also the new Glitter Tape
Wow, I am in love with this glitter tape!!!!

Here is my project life type page - reflecting on our family holiday - a week in Paris
 Everyday we saw something different.

"Monday to Sunday - A week in Paris"

Using the glitter tape underneath the Days of week - Diecut - DD734 Day Tabs

Kaisercraft materials : DD734 Day Tabs, Glitter tape - PT230 Lilac, PT228 Mint, P2002 Lilac paper, P1998 Minty, P1200 Cactus, P2001 Shine. CT845 Collectables, SS301 sticker sheet, SS302 sticker sheet.

I hope you like my projects with this collection. Now, on to the next awesome collection. I love "Treasured Moments", a very vintage themed collection of papers, with butterflies and flowers. I think it is a very romantic paper collection.

Here is a page I created.
I love the gold frame - it's a great way to place a photo inside the frame and place it on the page.

Couture Creations - Travel Snap Photo

Hi there everyone,welcome back to my blog,  today I am sharing my layout that I have created using the latest Couture Creations products. These die cuts are all now available from your local scrapbooking store and if they don't have them
in store, get them to order them in for you. 

"Travel Snap Photo" by Adriana Bolzon

Yes, I have created another layout using one of my many many photos of beautiful VENICE, besides Paris, I think this is my 2nd favourite place in the world.

The photo was taken in outside San Marco Square, looking up at the Campanile which towers 98 metres (nearly 322 feet). We went to the top of this Bell Tower which houses 4 very big iron bells. It was an awesome view from the top, you can see all of Venice… 
I have some more photos later in this post, of the fantastic views of Venice landscape…. clusters of buildings in between water.

Using the dies
Everyday Essentials - Autumn Leaf C0723112
for all the leaves under the die cut flowers, and
Kalini Intricutz dies - Falling Blossoms C0724251

Background Savvy die cut
Honeypot C0724088

Papers are from the Heart's Ease paper collection.

Using the Background Savvy die cut - Honeypot C0724088
as a stencil and decorating the background with a ink pad.

Adding Imaginarium Designs chipboard words at the bottom on the page and
Couture Creations Gemstones Seaspray C0721989 around the centre of the flowers, 

I love the colours of the Heart Ease papers - purple with green and then adding some blues and yellow, just makes an awesome combination of colours:)

As promised some more photos of Venice from the top
of the Campanile

Until next time, Thanks for looking, Cheers Adriana XXX   :)
