January Saturday Sketch #4 from Kaisercraft

Have you ever started a layout or project, not too sure the exact direction, but ended up LOVING it when you were done? That is exactly what happened for me this this layout. I was on Facebook the other day and my friend, Lori Williams, had shared Kaisercraft's link to the January Saturday Sketch. Soooo, I thought it would be fun to play along. Here's a peek at the sketch...
I went right to work digging through my Kaiser stash and stumbled upon the Merry & Bright collection. I had some pics of my littlest ones and my niece with Santa and thought it would be fun to work with them.
I started with a 12x12 sheet of Twinkling as my background page. I wanted to keep with the square layers so I grabbed my new Grand Decorative Labels One and cut it out using the cream side of a 12x12 sheet of Luminous. Once that was done I started picking out various die cuts from the 6 1/2" Merry & Bright paper pad. I really like how they add some embellishments in with the paper pads!! I LOVED the Twigs & Berries and knew right away it HAD to go on my page. I felt it needed a little something more and since I didn't have any Kaiser Christmas flowers, I decided to use one of the foil pages in the paper pack to cut some poinsettias with my Spellbinders Poinsettia Creations dies. Here's a close-up view of the Twigs & Berries...
Isn't that just gorgeous?! Lucky me, I have a small one left to add to a future project. ;) After I got all the flower pieces cut and assembled I arranged all the elements then set to work on my title. I hand cut a banner piece from the paper pad then added some bling using some Kaisercraft Rhinestone Strips. The title was die cut using an old font and the wood grained paper from the pad. A little tag for the date tied up with some twine finished it off. Here's a closer look at some of the title details...
I love the added detail of the foil paper on the flowers. Like I said, I am extremely happy with how this layout turned out. Be sure to check out the Kaisercraft Blog for some amazing inspiration! And who knows, maybe I'll see you in one of the February challenges. :) Photobucket
