    Hi Kaisercrafters!

    Amanda here, & I am super excited to be sharing more Kaisercraft inspiration with the 2 new collections for February;

    Old Mac Header

    &

    Coastal Escape Header

    Two very location themed collections – farm and beach – but both perfect for memory keeping!

    Let’s get straight into my creations with Old Mac!

    This collection is a lil rustic and farmyard shabby, and has some gorgeous hues of red and blue too!

    Perfect for those sepia toned photos too…..

    “Farm, Sweet Farm”

    2016-01-17 11.13.43

    I know, how good is that corrugated fence patterned paper?!!

    A perfect background paper that  works so well with sepia photographs – LOVE it!

    And those red hues! So warming!

    Kaisercraft Products: P2048 | Rusty, P2050 | Homegrown, PP990 | Paper Pad, SS306 | Sticker Sheet, CT849 | Collectables, T303 | Foam Tape. Other: Staples

    But I mentioned blues too, right?

    Well check out this flanelette inspired pattern paper….

    “You Are The Best”

    2016-01-18 09.00.33

    Isn’t this paper awesome?!! I love a great tartan print… ;)

    Some super cute collectables too! Loving those lucky horseshoes!!!

    And here’s a page I created that combines those fabulous reds and blues together…..

    “Made On The Farm”

    2016-01-22 11.58.12

    Isn’t this darling? I mean, seriously, that rabbit is just too cute for words!!!

    I also wanted to share a quick birthday card I created for a friend of mine who has chickens ;)

    “Happy Birthday” card

    2016-01-22 11.17.44

    She loved it! & I might just add, those collectables make it so easy to whip up a card!

    Kaisercraft Products: CD101 | Coconut, PP990 | Paper Pad, CT849 | Collectables, ST913 | Steel, T302 | Mounting Foam Dots.

    Okay, now I have something super sweet to share;

    “Country Quilt Girl” Off The Page Mixed Media Art

    Meet my Country Quilt Girl…..

    2016-01-22 14.55.29

    Isn’t she the sweetest?!!

    I just love her ‘quilted’ skirt to no end!!!

    I must declare though – she is not ‘really’ mine – I have been taking artist, Christy Campbell Tomlinson, online art classes & learnt how to create her here.

    But I am still able to say she was made from my vision, my hands and the fabulous 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 inch paper pad papers!

    A really cute mixed media project that I will definitely be repeating!

    Next up, I am sharing a layout where I am not behind the camera!

    I made a commitment this year to make sure that my children also had memories of me beside them, so here’s a pic of me and my Mr A for Awesome at the beach….

    “Beautiful Memory” 

    IMG_20160202_133545

    I love this! It really is a beautiful memory for both of us – I am so glad I gave the camera to someone else for a change! I urge you to do the same!

    And aren’t those pattern papers divine?!! The Sea Grass paper is my favourite!!!

    And now to move away from the coastal blues,

    and look at the raw, rustic colours in this collection….

    “Explore”

    IMG_20160203_103913

    This paper is divine!!! Let’s take a closer look….

    Gorgeousness!

    Coastal Escape is without a doubt my favourite collection for the month (but then we do live by the beach!) :)

    Oh, and I’d better not forget to mention those collectables & tiny flourishes that complete the look too! Perfect embellishments to my super sweet photo!

    IMG_20160203_130251

    How cute is that stamp set!!! There are coordinating dies in the set too – but I’ll share them on another post later this month ;) Just a bit of a sneaky peak for you really!

    I hope you feel inspired by my creations today!
