Happy Snaps is HERE!!!!

This month is the premiere of Happy Snaps by KaiserCraft.  It's a great collection for journaling, capturing those precious photos and just having plain fun.  This is a layout I created using the Happy Snaps and honestly I think it speaks for itself. 

I love the detail shot that really shows all the layering and levels....it really helps a layout to pop!  I'll see you Wednesday with Heartfelt Creations collection release for April.  I know you won't be disappointed.

My Boy Frame with KaiserCraft

This cute little frame was one I made for KaiserCraft using the Limelight collection from March 2013.  I love the way the pop of color really comes out along the edge of the frame.  It's just a bit of color but it seems so balanced to me....just a little.  

I hope you have a creative weekend of fun and I'll see you on Monday.

A Time to Remember Layout with Heartfelt Creations

Today's Heartfelt Creations layout is using the latest collection, Once Upon a Time.  This is a picture of me as a little girl with my Great Grandmother, whom I adored.  The older I get the more I cherish little pictures snaps like this...it's priceless to me.

Clustering is a key in layouts to add interest and depth to your projects.  

The vintage feel of Heartfelt blends perfectly with the look of the picture.  If you would like complete directions for creating this layout or the flowers be sure to hop over to Heartfelt Creations Blog and check it out.

Paper, Flour, Sugar...Really????

Today's project is one that I dragged the kitchen into my work, LOL.  Really.  Did you know flour, sugar and water will make a homemade paper mache base for your projects.  I was able to create this 3-D bowl using a balloon and the paste along with some beautiful papers from KaiserCrafts Blubelle collection.

Once you've created the form you're happy with, be sure to do a final spray of some type of sealer/clear matte finish.
