Hey Crafters:)
This week I wanted to share with you a Junk Journal that I created using papers from Kaisercraft - Confetti Collection.  I love to make journals and using all the elements that come with this collection's just so easy.
These papers are bright and fun and with the die-cuts from the collectables and the cut outs and punch outs it came out fun and summery. 

Throughout the journal I put this gorgeous floral washi tape which I am starting to use more and more.  So9 useful for many projects and really adds a little something to your creations.
I bound my Journal with the Zutter bind-it-all one of my favourite tools and you can find these along with the o-wires at Scottie Crafts
with all the elements in the paper collection it was easy to embellish this journal as well as add interest to every page.
I added tabs throughout this journal and I made them using my We R Memory Keepers
 Envelope punch board.  There are so many different things that you can create with this awesome tool. 
 I have a vid click here to show you how I made the Tabs.
I hope you enjoyed this project share.  I have really been enjoying designing for Scottie Crafts and playing with all the awesome craft supplies and tools they have to offer.
I want to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and hope the New Year brings heaps of crafting and good times :)

Gift tag

Hey crafty friends :)
This month I got the Confetti Collection from Kaisercraft.  It's a bright, fun collection with some great chevron patterns, geometric, some wood grain and florals.  The paper lends to heaps of styles that would be great for so many projects.  This week it's my daughter Teja's 15th birthday and I thought I would make this tag to add to her gifts.  Where has the time gone??
The Tag base I used the packaging that the Prima Doll Stamp came in.

I layered the tag up with papers from the collection and embellished with some Prima flowers and a couple of these gorgeous Prima Doilies that I love to use in so many of my creations.

Popped the Prima doll up to add some dimension and used some of the cut-outs and  stickers from the collection.

Being that I am not a stamper I was a bit perplexed at how I was going to colour this cutie pie up so I thought I would try my hand at paper piecing.  I must say it was a bit of a challenge as stamping and fussy cutting are definatly not my favourite thing to do at all.  I gave it my best shot and was pleased at how it came out though I am sure al you clever stampers will do a much better job, at least now I can say I have done it :)

So that's my Tag guys just a quick project this week.  I'm working on a Mini album for next week so be sure to check that out.
