Kaisercraft DT - Hello Today

Hi everyone, and welcome to my blog :)
I am up on the Kaisercraft Blog this week, sharing my creations with this months 3 new AMAZING collections! - Hello Today, Off the Wall & Close Up!  All 3 are just WOW.....I can't think of any other words, but I do know that you are going to want & NEED these collections :)))) 
And just one of the things that I LOVE about all 3 collections this month?  Is that they all come with papers that are suitable for cutting out shapes, to then create your own background with - I love doing this & it's so much fun.  Ok, how about I just let the collections speak for themselves?....
So first up for today is the gorgeous "Hello Today"
"Silo Magic"

Don't have a hexagon punch or die?  No worries...they come ready printed on the "Everyday" paper, and all you need to do is cut them out - and they are all sorts of colours & patterns too.  Or if you like the paper as is, even easier.  Hexagons are such a cool trend in the scraping world atm, so these are just perfect.  I've cut them out & distressed the edges slightly, then arranged them in a flowing motion across & down the page.

Paper Blooms, stickers & Collectables pieces....they are my go-to's for creating my clusters :)

I've used one of the 3x4 "Right Now" Captured Moments cards for my  journaling...and also layered in under the photo as well.  I find these little gems make layering & arranging things on the page so easy & simple! No need to measure, cut etc....it's all done for you.  It's just a matter of shuffling them around until you're happy with the arrangement....so just one other use for these cards besides PL style scrapping.

I've also used a few other new release products from Kaisercraft....Corrugated Cardboard & Cork sheets!!!  Oh how I LOVE these :))))  They give such a great rustic feel & add such awesome texture!

I've used some of the cool stamps from the Hello Today clear stamp set randomly on the background, as well as the Tiny Dots stamp.

I soooo love the golden browns in this collection...they are so me :)
And another great thing about the colours in this collection, is that they are neutral, which makes them so adaptable to adding pops other colours to the palette....such as the blue in my photo & the few little embellishments I've added, plus there's a slight hint of blue in the background work.  But any other colour would go well with this palette as well.

Lots of the stickers & Collectables pieces in this collection are day/month/year related, so I can see they are going to be popular for next years calendars and the like.
There are 3 sticker sheets with this collection, and one of them are clear acetate months of the year, so this is what prompted me to create a little desk calendar for 2015....
"2015 Desk Calendar"
I started it all from scratch, by first cutting out some chipboard pieces 6"x6" and then had a heap of fun covering & embellishing them for each month.
It is a flip type calendar, and each month backs against the previou month,
so I only needed 6 pieces of chipboard.....which is another new release from Kaisercraft this month - 12x12 chipboard sheets!

Each month I've tried to vary the design, papers & embellishments used, but each month I've basically used pieces from the paper pad, sticker sheets, Collectables pack, some "Right Now" Captured Moments cards, the clear stamp set & some paper blooms....as well as a minimal amount of embellies from my stash,
plus a few different diecut pieces.

I also tried to vary the placement of each months clear acetate sticker - apologies for the glare on some of the acetate stickers, it was a bit tricky to photograph them in good lighting, without getting some glare.

The little calendar pieces are from the "Mod" paper, and are so perfect for a calendar or even pocket type calendar.  I simply cut them all out, taking off the top part with the name of the month and then rounded the corners with a corner punch.  And underneath that, a few of the Captured Moments cards layered on top of each other....which makes things so much quicker, as I mentioned earlier.

I found that the Film printed tape went so well with this collection :)


Some 2Crafty chevron bits - love my 2Crafty chipboard!
And the 3 little circles down the side are stamped impages using the Hello Today clear stamp set.


Papers from the paper pad are perfect for this type of thing as it saves cutting up
full sized 12x12 papers!

Layering of a paper doily, some Captured Memories cards, the cut calendar paper, stickers & diecuts from the Collectables pack.

I've even used some of the cut off strips on a few of the months pages.

 The paper pad also has, as it always does, a few pages of little diecut pieces, such as the scalloped border piece at the top of the page, as well as many others, and these are so so versatile for either cardmaking or scrapbooking layouts.  Love them!

Lovely layout and such a cool photo. Lots of fussy cutting or do you have a punch. I love the corrugated card.
That calendar is just stunning. Even with all the techie stuff I still like to see and use a PROPER calendar. This is just so pretty.
