Kaisercraft ribbon box for a crafty friend. Love the Class of 87 papers. Easy 1 hour project.

door plaque

I absolutely love the Party Animals range by Kaisercraft. I have 16 different kids in my world (my own, friends, family, neighbours) so there is always opportunities to do kid friendly stuff. Wolfgang turns One next week and at the same time is moving into a room of his own. So of course a door plaque was in order!

More Tags

Enjoyed making my Christmas tags so much I went ahead and did another set, this time using the very pretty Chanteuse collection by Kaisercraft. I'm not so sure, but do those rosy blooms look a little like spooky eyes with the pearls in the centre?

Origami Box

Had fun learning how to make origami boxes this weekend. I used the very beautiful Chapter One papers by Kaisercraft (hmm what a surprise). I used the instructional video by scrap designer her Kristina Werner:

pencil box

The k-bots Kaisercraft papers are pretty old now but still look great on BTP projects for older boys. This is for my 7 year old friend Silas who is just way to big for baby boy papers and yet still wants something fun. I was so pleased with how it turned out. I'm finding the kaisercraft glue is really good for getting papers down onto wood - it doesn't dry to fast and cleans off the edges nicely. This was for Christmas but since i made the cool birthday card I think he's going to get this sooner rather than later!

Christmas in May?

Little things
Yes I have started on my Christmas presents - well the wrapping at least! Because I still had so much left from my Tis the Season and Dear Santa pads following my Christmas album I thought Id be a little industrious this weekend and transform some basic papier mache boxes into Christmas packages (ready for a pretty mug, a brooch, some earrings perhaps?) the smallest one I made a tag gift set to send to friends in London. So cold here in Melbourne it may as well be snowing so I can pretend I'm in a Northern Christmas!

Bug Boy Mini

Mothers Day Project
What can be a better treat for mothers day than for the whole family let me just scrapbook all afternoon? And that's exactly what I did. Last week Thom and I found a caterpillar in the garden and decided to give it a little home in the cubby. He was fascinated by it, feeding it leaves, putting some dirt in a container for his new pet to roam around.
I used Kaisercraft Jungle bug papers, mini leaf album, green paint and rub ons. A lovely memory and a lovely way to spend mothers day.

Happy Days

a gift for Max
Well I have recovered from not making the Kaisercraft cut after a whole 12 hours of sulking. I did pull out my new October Afternoon Campfire papers and chipboard stickers today to make this little present for my good friend Max (age 3) and I just LOVE the way it turned out. This is such a great range - beautiful and fun papers, cute embellishments. 30 minute project - voila!

Card Making

For Christmas this year (you know you are already thinking about it crafty ladies) I'm giving some overseas friends sets of cards that they can use throughout the year. Some birthday, generic, get well soon, bon voyage and baby cards. They are for non crafters who love receiving hand made gifts especially useful ones.
I've used Up Up and Away for the more masculine and Secret Bird Society (both by Kaisercraft) for the feminine cards and I just love them. I call this my TV crafting - Masterchef is perfect for that! I also used Basic Grey card stock, it's lovely and matte and takes glue and tape really well.

Kaisercraft Haul

Ok so I promised no more Kaisercraft for at least a fortnight but what's a girl to do when she drives right past the outlet store???? And Id be a fool to not get started on my Christmas crafting right? I really did need those 6x6 pads, pearls, cards, sentiment stamps, holly wreath, paint, birdsong papers and GORGEOUS ribbon packs ( I swear no one does ribbon better). good grief. I think I may have an addiction...
