Kaisercraft DT - North Pole

Hello everyone...I hope you are having a great start to the week!
I am up on the Kaisercraft blog this week with 3 new paper collections.
Todays post is using another Christmas collection....North Pole!
It is a fun collection, with quite a few non-traditional colours...which I love!
I have created 2 layouts....one is Christmas themed and the other is from our holiday to Ireland last year, so this is quite a versatile collection and would be suited for other layouts besides Christmas :))
"Dreaming of a White Christmas"

As the North Pole name suggests - the colours are well suited for snow themed Christmas layouts.
The photo I've used is not actually a photo....it is an image from an e-card, so was not taken by me.
I have always dreamt of having a White Christmas, so I thought this paper collection was perfect to document that dream :)
I've used the gorgeous Snowflakes paper for the background, with those
awesome faux stitched chevrons!

My cluster has a few paperblooms, Collectables pieces & also some stickers from the sticker sheet.
I've also added a few spirals from the stems of the paper blooms

I have layered a variety of papers in under the photo & also some Collectables pieces as well.

These baubles are gorgeous pieces from the Collectables pack.
I love delving into each paper collections Collectables pack...it is quite literally, just like Chrismtas!
They are always filled with a HEAP of fabulous pieces....in all different shapes & sizes.

I have added my journaling to the back of a tag & it slips just in under the photo.

There is also some mesh tape around the edges of my paper layers for a bit of added texture.

"Kinsale Harbour"

I thought the colours in this collection well suited the colours of the amazing Kinsale Harbour.
So again, a few simple layers in under the photo, using papers & collectables pieces...plust some Kaisercraft printed tape.

Another cluster with paper blooms, Collectables & some 2Crafty Chipboard - Summer Leaf Stems

I have this collection to make a mini album for December but I love how you've used the papers for a non-Christmas layout.

I just love these papers... We are the same as you hot as hell for Christmas. In 2010 we went to Ireland for Christmas and Scotland for Hogmanay.. it was amazing and I want to do it again. The snow was so beautiful. :) Kinsale harbour is fabulous. That is where my brother lived when he first went to Ireland.. really beautiful there. The cards are lovely. Crisp and clean and I love the insert into the envelope. So special. xx
