Hi there everyone :)
This week I will be up on the Kaisercraft blog with 3 of this month's new collections.
The first collection that was featured today, is Basecoat Christmas!
If you're like the rest of the population, and loved all 3 previous Kaisercraft Basecoat collections....this one will be no different! It is just as fabulous as all the previous Basecoat releases, and I'm sure you will love it as much as the others :)
My first project is a layout....
"I believe in Santa Claus"
I've used the reverse side of the gorgeous "Flora" paper for my background with a touch of mixed media in under my layers of paper strips. How cool is the red timber decking on this paper?!
I absolutely love it!
I've created a cluster with a few different coloured paper blooms...and pieces from the Collectables pack. There's also some strips of Kaisercraft lace in amongst the paper strips as well.
The stencil work is using the new release template - Moroccon Lattice & the stamping is a new release stamp - Morocco. Love them both!
Here you can see the lace a bit better....as well as some punched border strips, border sticker from the sticker sheet, and also some cut off strips from various papers.
More collectables pieces...and a close up shot of the main area of the page....which has some of the Captured Moments 3x4 cards layered in under the photo.
Pic is of my kids some 20 years ago!! yikes...makes me feel old!
Next up is another layout...
I've kept the background nice & clean with this one....using the Christmas Bells paper - I love the old weathered look & feel to the timbers on this paper <3
And.....Oh how I love the christmas decorations at the top of the page...they look so real & 3D!!
I have, however, added a bit of stencil work on the green piece under the photo...using the new Stars template.
Another cluster of Paper Blooms, stickers & Collectables pieces
I've added a strip of cream lace along the bottom of the papers for some added texture....and some stamping using the Basecoat Christmas clear stamps. Oh, and there's also some of the new release washi tape in there too....Chevron - Mint <3
I've also used one of the Basecoat Christmas - Captured Moments 3x4 cards at the side of the photo.
Pic is of my DS a few Christmas' ago! Well, more than a few....more like 6! LOL
