And Another One - Pina Colada Collection

I want to say that this is my favourite collection but every time I see a new one my mind changes, so for today this is my favourite and here are a few things llittle projects I've used this collection for. This range is so bright and fun you could use it for sooooo many things from holidays snaps, to birthdays even beach photos, really whatever you like.

PINA COLADA
The following layout was one that I couldn't resist doing in this range just for the fact the colours of girls bathers matched perfectly with the papers. I have added a few elements form the free EXTRAs section in the Kaisercraft magazine.. The big swirl (has been put through the cuttlebug and embossed), along with the flowers cut out from the mag and used. Its always nice to get a little something for nothing and even better when it all matches the ranges that are out there.
I guess your all know how much I love Beyond the Page and its so exciting when you see your sketches evolve into real products. If you are like me you have small mini albums all over the place and I was beginning to wonder how to display them all, so the reason for the album stand. These albums are small enough that you can give one to your child to complete over the school holidays with some of their photos - that would keep them out of you way so you could have a little scrapping time for yourself - not likely right?... hmmmm me neither...... as my girls want to just to whatever I am. I really do love this little stand and looks really effective when covered in paper to match your albumsThe following photos have been sitting in a pile begging to be scrapped for sooooo long now I hate to think. The Freestyle Album has always been one of my favourites and have completed a few of them now. As with all old favourites it came to the rescue once again.
And lastly here is a card created with some of the left overs.
If you do something special with this range send me a copy and I can put it up on my blog or better still post it in the Kaisercraft gallery for all to see.
Thanks for coming past
Have a great day.

Wow I luuurve your Freestyle Album! What a fantastic job - really like the fozz felt and popping the rhinestones in the centres. Way cool! I've done a LO using Pina Colada (it's not perfect though), and our friend Liz reminded me you want to see pics of what we do. I've also done a tribute to you in my most recent post *smiles* as I really do feel honoured to have you visit my blog.
Kindest regards
Hilary

Mmm Love the Freestyle too! I've only been a tiny bit creative since our trip to Aussie. It's been a bit crazy getting these new goods organised and online - but wow! They look amazing! So I've made a card with the Pina Collection. It's simple - but easy with these beautiful papers and a bit of dimensional magic... Not sure how to send it to you (a bit thick that way!) but it's on my blog today... www.artfullcrafts.blogspot.com
Enjoy the weekend!
