Kaisercraft Design Team 2011 Call blog post

Welcome to my application for the Kaisercraft Design Team. I have a selection of paper crafting projects to show you.

First section = OFF THE PAGE.

I have created a handbag for my front lobby. I love the new Chanteuse collection. This is the first off the page item I have kept as I usually give them as gifts, but I purposely created this one for our home.

Second Section = CARDS

Life Is a Beach
 I've used the Seaside papers here and raised them with foam dots to give dimension. I've also created a shaker box using beads in the same colourway.

One of a Kind
 Here I've done some punching, added some ribbon and flowers for a pretty, girly card.

U are One of a Kind
 I've started with white cardstock. I've punched out lots of little flowers, bent up each petal to add dimension and added one green one with a Kaiser ice green pearl to make it stand out as "One of a Kind".

Section 3 - LAYOUTS

Grade Six
 I've created this School layout using Class of '87. Here is my son on his first day of Grade Six. I chose a play on ABC blocks for the accents.

Central Park
 I've used a variety of different Kaisercraft collections for this layout, just so long as they had the same colour scheme. I got the idea for this layout from a car advertisment in our local TV guide. I've just cut different strips of PP, faux stitched in different ways on them with coloured pens and added them randomly to the page. I like the effect.

Indoor Karting
 I though the Shaken Not Stirred collection was so cool. We all love James Bond in this family. We even made some family movies called Bames Jond. Instead of uber-cool and successful, Bames was a bumbling spy code-named 0007. The collection was perfeThisct for my son's birthday party layout.

Xmas 2010
 Here is a double I made for our family tradition of Kris Kringle gift-giving. The guys page is on the left and the girls page is on the right. They are subtley different but still matching. I've used some wooden frames as journal boxes.

Empire State Building
I love to make travel albums. Recently we went to the US and I've been doing lots of pages on that trip. Here is a double I made for one of the recent Saturday sketches over at Kaiser. It was a double with a pocket page on the right. I made my own pocket and have slipped in the tourist guide map for the view from the top (which is incredible btw).

So, there you have it. I'm hoping the selection panel over at Kaisercraft love my creations. I certainly love their products and love scrapbooking to bits. I'd be honoured to be on their team and would feel blessed to be chosen.

Thanks for looking.
