I'm so happy to be back with you again for a fresh new month of Kaisercraft Inspiration! Its been a week since my last post and in that time I have been very busy making projects with Kaisercraft's gorgeous two December ranges "Treasured Moments" and "My Year, My Story", two totally different collections. First up I'm talking "Treasured Moments" with some Heritage Layouts for my Family Tree Album and a Beyond the Page Trinket Box. Then I'm switching to "My Year, My Story" and Planner preparation for 2016! It is December! We are onto our last weeks for 2015...before long we will be making resolutions, starting our new planners and getting ready for a fresh year full of wonderful things : )
Layout One - Cherished Memories Always
Firstly, I'd like to share some Heritage Layouts. The layout above is a photo of my Grandmother and Grandfather on their wedding day. You may remember my Heritage Album project I have been working on for a few months now. These two pages are going into the Album. I made them very similar because I want them to be a double spread layout in the album. Both photos are from the wedding day.
In the first Layout I used the beautiful paper P2009 Wonder. I spritzed the page with some Antique Gold Kaiser Mist and layered papers from the 6 1/2 Paper Pad and little bits cut from P2012 Timeless.
I embellished the layouts with Collectables, die cuts and pearl brads. I added some stamps to the background page peeking out from under the layers.
I spritzed some Butterfly Wooden Flourishes with Antique Gold Kaisermist and popped them in as well. The wooden texture adds a little variety.

Layout Two - Time is Precious
In my second Layout, the photo is a lot lighter in colour tones than the first. This photo is of my Grandmother and her bridesmaid.
I followed the same style as the first layout with lots of layering of papers underneath the photo and a mixture of embellishments.
This is my favourite die of the month:

Have you seen it or have you purchased it yet? Its a must-have. Track it down...you will love it. Can you spot it in all my creations this month?

Beyond the Page - Small Trinket Box
My third project is this gorgeous Small Trinket Box. I had a lovely time painting this in gold and decorating it with the lovely papers in the Treasured Moments Collection.
I added some gorgeous Kaisercraft Blooms to highlight the pink tones in this collection.
I inked the edges of the butterfly with gold paint.
This is a lovely and easy Beyond the Page Project. It would make a perfect Christmas gift.

Calendar pages - My Year My Story
Finally today I am sharing some Calendar Pages I have made for my 2016 Planner using the My Year My Story Collection.
I used 12 calendar rectangles and layered them onto some of the blank pages in the Planner. I decorated each background page with different papers from the collection.
I added the word (January, February etc) stickers on top of the new and gorgeous Kaisercraft Glitter Tape! Have you seen it yet? It is oh so sparkly and comes in a huge range of colours!! The glitter tape matches in perfectly with the colours of the My Year My Story papers.
I used the My Year, My Story Clear stamp set to stamp out all the numbers and the "hello" sentiment in black ink. I do LOVE the "hello" sentiment!
I spent lots of time doodling around the borders of the pages, the tape, the collectables and the stickers. I was trying to create a whimsical feel to the pages.
I made some little tabs to help me find the start of each month easily. I wrote the names of the months on the little tab stickers and attached them to folded over papers. I really love the modern, bright colours in this collection.
I didn't photograph every month as I thought it would get a little too repetitive, but here is December...the last month of the year.
These pages are just a starting point for the planner and I do hope to add bits and pieces to these calendar pages as the year progresses. Also I might even colour in those cute little collectables! This was a time consuming project I must admit...12 months of the year...there is a lot of them lol! But once you have the basics are done you have a whole year to embellish as you please. The wonderful thing about the Kaisercraft Planner a is that it is totally customisable. With the My Year My Story collection you can make your planner as simple or as decorated as you like and it will be totally original!
