Hello! I've had a busy week and feel like it has been awhile since I blogged...but today I'm happy to be sharing some Cards, Beyond the Page Projects and a Layout using the two gorgeous Kaisercraft collections for the month of July, Mademoiselle and Bon Appetite.
Project One - "Awesome Little Helper" Layout
I had a lovely time making this fresh and modern layout using the Bon Appetit collection. It is featuring my little helper in the Kitchen.
I pin so many gorgeous layouts on Pinterest (Follow me here if you love pinning cards and layouts too!) and I realised just recently that so many of them have white backgrounds. I haven't done a Layout with a white background in ages so I thought I would give it a go with this collection. I chose a monochromatic colour scheme with bright red highlights.
I filmed a process video for this Layout that you might be interested in watching.

The Mademoiselle collection really inspired the card maker inside of me and I had a lovely time making cards with these gorgeous papers. This collection is full of beautiful flowers and butterflies, just perfect for making some lovely cards for your card stash.
Project Two - Friendship Card
I had a lovely time arranging a big cluster of flowers in the centre of this card. I'm saving this card to send to a special friend.

Project Three - A Trio of Mini Note Cards
I made a little trio of small note cards. These would be perfect for a little gift tag to decorate a present. This collection has a lovely vintage feel to it. The Kaisercraft cream lace goes perfectly with the colours in the papers and I have teamed it with some Kaisercraft organza ribbon and mini paper blooms.

Project Four - Butterfly Birthday Card
For a more modern look I cut a large butterfly from the collection and stamped the Butterfly background stamp a couple of times to make some more butterflies. I used corrugated card as the background paper with some strips of paper and swirls layered over the top.
I placed some mounting tape in between the three layers of the butterfly to keep the wings nicely elevated.
I added some twine and ribbon and mini paper blooms on the top of the layered butterfly.

Project Five - Decorated Birthday Frame
I have made several of these little frames in the past, using different collections of Kaisercraft papers, and I just love how quickly and easily they go together to make a nice gift for someone. This one I have made as a birthday gift for my Aunty who is celebrating a significant milestone this month.
