Little Toot Wall Plaque

Little Toot is another one of KaiserCraft new collections for July and it's perfect for little it was perfect for my household.  This is a wall plaque I created using the Little Toot paper, chipboard and new frame.  This really wasn't a hard project at all and though my little boys will end up with it, it really would have made a great baby or birthday gift.

Hi Everybody. With the heat of the season in full gear it's hard not to think of summer fun. Outdoor parties, afternoon pinics and breezy nights at an amusement park. So Scrapping Cottage's  new carnival collection is so awesome, in fact I couldn't stop creating so I have two cards for you today.

My first card uses the Carousel Horse Die .  I used Mcgill paper bloom tools to curve the body out and make it 3-D then I added all of his detail.  The tickets from the Ticket Booth Die were perfect for adding sentiments

My second card I fell in love with the Airplane Ride Die. How stinkin cute is it?...LOVE IT!  The paper collection I used is from Echo Park / Country Drive where you can pick it up from The Beary Scrap. I also used one of the chipboards clouds from the Country Drive collection to mask for inked/sponged clouds in the background.  The sketch for this card is Beary Scrap's latest need to jump in an particpate if you haven't already.

For the leaves of the rosette cluster I used the Orchid Flower Leaves and it really finished off the cluster perfect. The Carnival collection is just so much fun and I know you'll have fun playing with them yourself.


Hope you enjoyed my fun!!! 


See ya next week,

Oh The Places You Will Go

Today I have a KaiserCraft project I created using the Blae and Ivy Collection and the new Train Frame.  All I could think when I saw this frame was one of my son's favorite books by Dr. Seuss "Oh The Places You Will Go" .  It's a great book if you have never read or child. 
The mountain backing of the frame has been stamped with Kaiser's new font stamps...and it says " You will succeed, yes you will indeed. 98 and 3/4 percent guarantee"  Which is one of the final quotes in the book and for sure my favorite. 
This is going to go in my boys new bedroom and the colors are just going to be perfect.

First Day of School!

I can't believe my youngest has actually started school...GOOD GRIEF! He is growing like a weed right before my eyes.  This layout is of his first day of school and of course we had to include Brutus his favorite stuffed doggie. 
The collection is from KaiserCraft's Blae and Ivy..which I adore.  Plus you guys all know how much I love their pearls and no layout would be complete without some thrown in. 

Their paper bloom flowers are totally yummy too! I have to admit Kaiser's collections are wonderful because they have everything you could need to create...matching tags, stamps, paper,stickers, chipboard, name it.  So any project you can come up with is complete.  It's great!!!

Hugs, Lori
