A Merry Christmas Share...

Hi there everyone! :)

This week, I have had the absolute pleasure in using the totally gorgeous Kaisercraft's Merry Medley line of patterned paper and embellishments from Scrapbookit. I've created three layouts, and I'd like to share them with you today...


First up, is "It's Santa!!". This is my DT sample for the challenge blog, "Get Picky".

This layout is laden with "Merry Medley's" goodness! Just look at those colours! I love that combination! Here's a couple of closies...

and...


I made my background with Kaisercraft Gloss Varnish Paint and Tattered Angels Glimmermist in "Coffee Shop". :)

The second layout I created with this line has been picked up for publication by Scrapbooking Memories magazine for a Three-Step Technique Feature. It will be in Vol 16 Issue 8. :)

I can show you a couple of sneaks though...


and...


Now for my third layout...


Which has been featured this week at The Colour Room!



This is my 2nd feature at TCR. :)

So for this layout, "Christmas Morning Kiss", the colour palette was PERFECT for this collection!!! So that was super handy! I've also used the sketch provided at TCR too.


Because I was literally down to scraps for this layout - I found that I had to become more inventive - I'm really pleased with my Christmas trees; I made some templates with scrap paper by freehand drawing triangles, then I cut some strippy bits (alot were already strips!) and glued them horizontally across the "trees", then snipping them down to size once turned over (to see the template).

I put little "x's" on the top of two of my trees as stars - but they are really "Christmas Kisses" ;)...


One of the really awesome things about this Kaisercraft pp, is the fact that the bottom strip with the barcode etc. actually has a unique pattern on the other side which goes so well with the other papers. So that fact also helped my Christmas trees to "shine"! :D

Well I hope you've enjoyed my Christmassy share today! I hope I've inspired you to give this collection a go - I can't rave about it enough!!!

Plus don't forget about our monthly challenges here, or simply scroll down to check out the fantastic examples set by the design team, or you can just check out the deets on the right sidebar!

Cheers,
Chantal :)
