A week of Kaisercraft. Loire Valley

Now for a little of what's new and what I have been up to in the past month. If you have a copy of the new Kaisercraft mag you will have seen for yourself but if not - i think you seriously need to go out and get yourself a copy as there is lots of eye candy and projects included along with instructions for you all to have a go at yourselves.
As for the layouts, you may not like everything that is pictured but we have included the sketches so you can get an idea and change things around to make the layouts your own.
Here is one of the new ranges featured in the new Q1 Release.
Loire Valley - Q1 Range
From the moment i saw the first samples of this collection I fell in love with it . Then seeing my birdhouse sketches all fitting in with the paper was exciting. Both Al and I worked on this project together. We both loved it and as we ouldn't decide who to do it, we both did and it was so much working on it together. It turned out so cute. The little shelf is big enough to hold the plaque included but if you wanted to you could sit up one of the little mini albums for something a little different. It comes with hooks that you can add to the bottom to turn it into a key rack. As for layouts, there are so many elements on the papers that can be cut out and then there are the diecuts that can be used. Your layouts will fall together. What was more cooincidental was that i had recently been on a day trip and the girls happened to be wearing colours that suited this paper perfectly so it wasn't a hard decision to decide what photos to use and they all worked. I promise i didn't choose the paper colours to match the photos.
The new scallop album worked well to showcase all the other photos and although its minus the journalling I think you get the picture.
And lastly there are a few cards that have been made out of some of the scraps. There is nothing fancy about these cards but great examples of what you can do with your left over bits and pieces.
Just love this range and hope you do to.
Come back and visit tomorrow when i bring you another one of the new ranges.
