    Mothers day gift box

    The day we celebrate Mother’s day differ around the world. Mother’s day in Norway, is the second Sunday in February, and this coming weekend Australia. When I give small gifts, I often like to create a little box for the present. This is s small mothers day gift box created with the always and forever collection.

    The hexagonal box has been created from scratch with cardstock, and covered with patterned paper. The hearts has been created, using a flower die and Kaisercraft’s glitter cardstock.

    “Little moments” – layout

    I often go for walks with my camera, just in case I see the “perfect” photo scene. This photo, of a little bird family, was taken on a walk through a safari park in England. The layout has been created, using the paper P2096 Devotion. I used two pages of the same paper. I cut of the lace at the edge of the page, used that as a layered decoration behind the photo. The rest of the page has been used as a base for the layout.

    I used a background stamp, CS257 Background Script clear stamps and gesso on the background.  I have also used flowers and leaves from the collectables, as decoration.

    There is also diecuts with a lace boarder in between the paper lace. Some of the left overs from the diecut has been used to the left of the page. I have also added pink Rhinestone to the page at the end.

    Mermaid tails

    Not all cards need to be complicated. I decided to create some simple cards with this collection. I also wanted to feature some of Kaisercraft’s new dies. I often decorate all the sides of a card, when I create cards, I wanted to show you how this can be done clean and simple.

    “Leave a litte sparke card”

    On this card, I wanted to use the lace boarder (DD755) at the edge of the card.

    This card locks with thin magnets, glued between the patterned paper. I have also created some banners with Kaisercraft’s new white glitter cardstock and banner dies (DD914). The texts are from the collectables.

    The card opens at the side. I have cut two laces with the die and added patterned paper between the two pieces of lace, for stability.

    The card is simply decorated inside with space for a message.

    On the back of the card, I have used the text “leave a little sparkle, wherever you go and the mermaid from the sticker sheet. I have also sprinkled some glitter.

    Shaker card

    Shaker cards are always popular. This is a simple shaker card with one of the card creation dies (DD739) from Kaisercraft.

    The die has a circular piece at bottom right corner, so I wanted to create a shaker card in the corner.

    I have used small plastic beads inside, together with small shell shaped sequins.
