My Mind's Eye - Winter Wonderland

Hi all, this week I've been playing with a new collection, Winter Wonderland by My Mind's Eye.  Its been fun playing with the cute litte 6x6 paper pad. 

I love that these papers are double sided and the colour combinations are just lovely and modern! 

I think they've turned out really cute.  I can't wait to use the rest of the paper pad!!

This collection as well as many other crafting supplies can be purchased from

Thanks, Sandra :)

Perwinkle Cards

Alanna here today to share a couple of cards I've made this week with the Periwinkle collection. It was nicely timed as I had a few birthday cards to make for my grandmother and my auntie, so this collection was perfect for some nice, elegant cards :)

I've used the paper pad and collectables from the Periwinkle collection as well as some basic lace to add a little something extra. I've also inked the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink and backed each piece with cardstock. I love adding subtle depth to my cards, especially when they have to be posted!

Thanks for looking :)

Christmas Layout....

This week's project for me was a layout using the Just Believe collection so I decided to use a photo of my niece and nephew that was taken last year. 

Aren't they adorable! I'm sure my sister doesn't think so all the time. I really enjoyed making this layout as the collection has so many papers that work well together.

If you want to use this as inspiration to make your own layouts head on over to Kerry's store and grab some bargains so you can start work!

Butterfly Kisses - Foldable Gift Bag

Just dropping in to say hi (its Sandra here)!!  I also wanted to share a cute little bag I made using Kaisercrafts Butterfly Kisses Collection.

I found this bag/box on pinterest and just had to make it....the instructions are a bit difficult to explain in writing but I'll give it a go.

Take a 12 x 12 double sided paper (I used Butterfly Kisses - Daisy Chain).  Score in 3" from one side and then again 3" from the other.  Fold at the score lines and then fold out.

Turn your paper 90 degrees then score at 4" from one side and then again at 4" from the other. Fold at the score lines.

Now turn paper back again and fold in the two sides that are at 3".  You should have a rectangle in the center which measures 3"x6".  For each place where the two fold lines intersect, you need to fold it back like above.  (its tricky to explain but if you are really interested in seeing where I got the idea from please let me know and I can forward you the link!!)

Once folded it should look like the above.  I punched out a decorative strip (Kaisercrafts Cardstock - Bubblegum) to add to the top and also punched out holes for the ribbon.

Then I decorated the front of the bag/box.  I used papers and embellishments from the collection.  I die cut a cute tag and attached it as well.  You can really go crazy with the embellishing!

I think its really sweet and will definitely be using this for my little one's future birthday party favours.

I really love the little birds and butterflies in this collection!  And the bright, happy colours are just so sweet.

If you love this collection as much as I do, or you are looking for other gorgeous papers and papercrafting supplies, please head over to where the lovely Kerry will be only to happy to help you!

I hope you like my little project!

Butterfly Kisses - Layout

Hi everyone!

The design team so lovingly let me play with the very girlie and cute collection, Kaisercraft's Butterfly Kisses this month and I couldn't be happier!!  I love the bright and bold colours.  At first they can seem a bit in your face but as you start playing with them they are very easy to use. 

I had seen a similar layout in a Australian Scrapbook Creation Magazine by Maria Featon, so I decided to use it for inspiration.  I really like the different strips of patterned paper and the how the layout is layered with different types of papers from the collection.

For this layout, I used a beautiful photograph of my little Miss, which was taken last year.  I think the black and white photograph looks great with the colourful background and embellishments.

Its difficult to tell, but in this photograph, my little Miss is fascinated by a fabric flower, so I thought it fitting to add flowers as an embellishment.

I have finally started using distressing techniques in my first I found it quite difficult to do, but now I'm loving how it all looks and how easy it is to fix any little mishaps!!

So if I have inspired you to use this beautiful collection, then please head over to

for all of your scrapbooking and papercrafting supplies!!

Just Believe Cards....

It's a new month which means a new collection to play with! I chose Just Believe for my projects as it has lots of real reds and greens which to me are the colours that represent christmas the best! I have made 4 cards for this week's project, 2 of which are basic cards and with the others I tried out some card designs that I hadn't made before. I'm amazed at how easy they were! I also decided to use some of the images I had coloured with my Copic Markers. They definitely brighten up any card!

How are you going with your christmas cards? Have you made a start on them yet? If so we'd love to see them, if not then head over to the store to check out all the christmas goodies that Kerry has.
