Countdown till Christmas *A FREE Kaisercraft mini album online class*

November 23, 2009


In this FREE online class you will learn how to make your very own ‘Countdown till Christmas’ mini album.

Join in the fun with us to make a mini album and 25 pages to get in the festive spirit this ‘Silly Season’.

Today we’re showing you how to make three different mini albums  using our three latest Christmas collections – Christmas Carnival, Belle or Dear Santa!

Class materials:
* 1x mini album (we used our Hanging Calendar, SB2018).

* 1 x Kaisercraft 6x6inch Specialty Paper Pad (in your choice; Christmas Carnival, Belle or Dear Santa).

* 6 x sheets cardstock to coordinate with your patterned paper.

* EXCLUSIVE Countdown Numbers (Your selected paper collection) created especially for this class. To download and print yours (in either Dear Santa, Christmas Carnival, Belle) click here.

Total cost: Approx $21.70

Throughout December we will be showing you ALL the decorated pages, and how we decorate and add to our very own pages! Make sure you check back each day to see what’s happening!

It’s totally up to you HOW you decorate your album, what paper collection you choose and how you use it!

You can choose to leave your pages completely blank ready for whatever you decide to put in them later, scrap them ready for photos to be popped straight in or semi scrapped like I have done.

Afterall, Mel’s own quote is,

“There are no such things as mistakes, only unique creations”

So be inspired byKaisercraft’s most amazing in-house designers, Melissa Kennedy and Alison Hannah, along with Product Development Manager, Richelle Barker and myself!

If you have any questions, just jot them down below and we’ll respond ASAP!

Materials you’ll also need to re-create Mel’s album: Belle colour rub-ons, embellishment pack (ribbon & flowers), freebies from Kaiser Q2 magazine, chipboard alphas, kindy glitz.
