This month’s Inspirational Challenge, is a Mood Board Challenge.
Inspired by the July paper collection "BOTANICA"

See the Kaisercraft Blog for all the details.
Here is my take on the mood board using Kaisercraft Botanica Collection. I love this collection. As the name suggests it is full of plants, flowers and leaves! I love the natural feel to it. I found this wedding photo of Benny and I. We got married in 2002...its getting longer and longer ago haha!
I went for a clean and simple Layout layering some papers behind the photo and some collectables on top. I wanted some lavender pops of colour so I used paper blooms, printed tape and Lavender pearls. I love the elegance of the blooms and pearls.
I chose the title "Our Journey" because marriage is really a journey. When you think back to the day you got married, it is certainly a significant step in your journey together with your life partner. Then you think about all the times you have had since...and all the memories you have created...and all the experiences you are yet to have together.
I added some stitching to the Alpha chipboard that I inked with Vintage Ink. I wanted the letters to be a bit distressed looking - not evenly covered with ink, but a bit blotchy.

It has been awhile since my last post.
Life has been busy!
We've been settling into a new routine and it has taken me a few days to get myself sorted.
Plus, I am really trying to knock off a few things on my to-do list...you know those things you never seem to get around to finishing? I am determined to finish them.
One of these jobs is my kitchen bench stools I am painting them in chalkboard white. There is five of them...and I cant seem to devote enough time to getting this job done! I am about half-way through. You would think staring at this unfinished job every day would be motivation enough...but apparently not!
Maybe you would like to see some photos when I am done?
That might give me a bit more motivation lol!
Today I wanted to share some quick and easy cards I made using Project Life 3x4 and 4x6 cards.
Are you like me and do you have a big stash of these?
Well, they really are perfect for making some quick and easy cards.
I combined the 3x4 cards with some Close to My Heart stamped sentiments and I fussy-cut around some pictures on the cards.
I added some ribbons and little die cut shapes I had left over.
A bit of washi tape and some gemstones.
I made these while crafting with a friend.
They were fun to put together.
Do you make Greeting cards out of Project Life cards?
Do you have any unfinished jobs lying around your home that you would LOVE to be complete?
Have a good week,

Everyone in my family and friendship circle this year is having babies! And they all seem to be little girls! This year it feels like I have made more baby girl cards than ever before.
These sweet little vintage baby cards were made with Kaisercraft Pitter Patter 6 1/2 inch Paper Pad and the matching Collectables. Then I just added a little Kaisercraft cream lace and a few ribbons from my stash.
To make the cards I simply layered the Collectable onto a frame and popped them up with mounting tape. I layered some pretty pink paper to the background of the card and added some lace and ribbon.
