A Page I have actually scrapped!!!

This page I have scraplifted!!!...What did you expect??...I haven't actually scrapped a page that wasn't a class since I needed a little help...scrapbooking memories vol 11 no 8, page 37. The layout design is by Hetty Hall...I just loved it!!

I haven't changed it a real lot as I said I loved it the way it was!!!...excellent page Hetty.

I have used embossed bazzil cardstock, bella! Sarah Jane collection pattern papers, making memories flowers (they are 3D I cant remember their name), the butterflies are cut out with the cuttlebug and embossed.

This photo was taken of Tania and I at the Q1 Kaiser launch...these two lovley ladies in the middle are Nikki Antonello and Christine Rumley, they are apart of Kaisers new design team.

Yes I know a photo taken at the Kaiser launch and I have used Bella! pattern paper!!...Shhh!

Margaret's page of Milla

Margaret did this page at Midnight Madness (Saturday 19th). I can't believe she (Milla that is) is 7 weeks old already. Margaret has used the new Abby Road range from my minds eye....these papers are beautiful, just perfect for the beautiful picture...I am allowed to say this!!!! hehe

Christmas Bauble

This Christmas Bauble was inspired by yet another Kaiser creation...In their Q2 magazine which is due out October 1st, (for some a little earlier) they had three baubles made up with the Kaiser pearls....further into the magazine (and I can't quote page numbers as I left the mag at work)...they have done a bauble with gold and silver brads...I have done a combination of both.
I have used a foam ball, painted it green. I started with the Kaiser green pearls and half way up the ball I decided I needed to look for something that would fill up space...thus the christmas ribbon. I wanted to go for something different for the top and after many circuits of the shop decided on the gold brads...I thought I was so clever until I stumbled upon the bauble with gold and silver brads in the magazine...Hmmm...wasn't my idea after all!.
I think that these would make a special gift to give to someone, your children, grandchildren etc to hang on their tree.

second shoe

For this shoe I have used Kaiser Ukon pattern paper, well the back to it. (Sakura Park). I have torn the paper into small peices and modge podge it to the shoe. I have used a Hambly rub-on up the side with kaiser black rhinestones (of course). I have ruffled tule, folded a large black flower (FTI) in half layered a white and red the white flower (kaiser) then using the matching Sakura Park epoxy brad for the centre.
I hope there is not too much of a glare on these pics and I don't know how to get writing under each photo without making them separate posts???...I will work on it!!!

Here is a close up of the rhinestone shoe. I brought this pair of shoes from the second hand shop. I painted them red (obviously) and the inside and sole black. painting them black just made the shoe look clean and fresh as they were originally cream. I painted over the paint with

modge podge and used a mixture of the large to small rhinestones....I should have used a bit of pritt glue on the rhinestones as they are always falling off and not necessarily being put back in the right spot...thus the gaps!!

Ruby red shoes

My shoes were inspired by a pair of beautiful rhinestone shoes in the Kaiser Craft Magazine Quarter1 (first edition)...Page 138. I am not sure who made these BUT I loved them. I also got a chance to see them first the Kaiser outlet in Geelong Victoria. As you can see only one was Bling!... I couldn't do that the other shoe is my idea.
