Christmas Carnival


Hello Everyone!

I would just like to show you some things I made yesterday using Kaisers Q2 Christmas Carnival Collection.

I was a bit stuck with what to give my daughters school teacher as a Thank You for this year, so I started playing around with the Carnival papers and this is what I came up with: (comments will be appreciated!!)
Its a little tote made from 1 sheet of 12″ papers, 2 brads and a strip of paper for the handle. For inside I made a little box out of pink cardstock which will be filled with either chocolates or toffees.
I then made a magnetic shopping list for on the fridge. (using some more of the pink cardstock, piece of ribbon, a couple of rhinestones and a small pad from king kong)

And I made a cover for a packet of post it notes. It has a little loop up the top for a small pencil or pen and I used the Carnival puffy stickers as an embellishment.
With a scrap of the cardstock I had left I made a little holder for either a gift voucher or lottery ticket.

I then decided I needed to make a table center piece for Christmas. Finding nothing else suitable I used the smaller square tissue box cover from Kaiser, turned it upside down, put a bit of cardboard in the bottom to seal the hole and painted it red. After I finished embellishing it, I filled it with florist foam and pushed a candle in. To cover the rest of the green I used some silvery tinselly stuff (sorry forgot the name!!).

Then I made a couple of quick cards:

Tomorrow I will show you what I have been making with the Lilac Avenue Collection.

Hope you have a great day!


Christmas Presents


Hello Everyone!

For the past week I have been making Christmas Presents for my daughters teachers and some people who are very hard to buy for and have everything already anyway, so I thought to share them with you.
These are fabric covered 6 x 6″ note books I picked up at Target at a clearance price. I’ve had them for over a year always meaning to do something with them and now I finally have.

For the above note book I used the new Kaiser Christmas Carnival paper pad. These paper pads are great! Each pad includes 10 specialty papers (2 x flocked, 2 x spot varnish, 2 x foil and 4 die cuts) as well as 24 sheets of designed paper. I have also used Prima Flowers, our brand of crystal brads and AC Thickers.

For the purple note book I used the Lilac Avenue paper pad from Kaiser, Lilac Avenue Alpha Stickers (with matching chipboard) as well as Prima Flowers, Crystal Brads and Kaiser Adhesive Pearls and Ranger Ice Stickles.

Tomorrow I will show you the candle holder I made using the New Kaiser Christmas Carnival Range of papers.

Hope you have a great day!
