Card and Layout| Prima July Challenges

Today I was looking for inspiration and thought I needed to just do some 
Fun challenges over on the Prima blog as their are only a few days left
So I started with the card sketch challenge 

Here is what I ended up with I think it turned out pretty cute 

I used a border punch and punched a border top and bottom of my first layer of patterned paper 
Then adding a second striping the center and another strip that I cut in a banner for the center element

Then I added all my flowers,leaves,paper clay embellishment and a bit of a paper straw

And for my next one I done the BAP challenge 

And here is my layout 

My idea for this one was aether cut the star out of patterned paper or the background 
And add the patterned paper behind the cardstock so I chose the behind and
Machine stitched around it and distressed the edges 

Then using a stencil I added the texture over the area where the star and around the star
Then i mounted my photo on some patterned paper and added some patterned paper strips 
Behind my mounted photo and a glassline paper cut Doily and added some more paper straws on top of the patterned paper strips

As I only had a few flowers I pulled some apart to make more and adding bling in the middle 
And some cotton threads to add extra texture to my layout 

I had fun playing with this sketch

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my creations

When I opened the new collections for this month I was excited to start playing with it all
For my first layout I done lots of fussy cutting, those flowers are absolutely lovely 
I've also created a process video for this layout..

here is my Video Process

As you can see I layered lots of little things from the collectables ,fussy cut flowers to added a few stickers

This collection is perfect for those who love vintage and fussy cutting 

I really adore this collection I absolutely love all the florals and colours

I absolutely love that paper lace curtain I just had to use it on my layout

My next creation is a card that I popped together using mostly the paper pad and collectables

For my next layout I used the Bon appetite collection 
I created a envelope as my main layer for a pocket for my recipe cards

For my background I used one of the patterned papers
As I love that it looks like a big chopping board and to bring more colour
Into the layout I used a stencil with texture paste to help my patterned paper layers to pop

I fussy cut around some of the leafy collectables to tuck underneath my flowers 
My photo is of some fresh herbs I picked to add to a dish I was cooking 
I love added fresh herbs they always have more flavour 

I added a collectable to the end of the recipe card so I could easily pull it out
And pop it back in the pocket I've also used a collectable for my title

For my next project I decorated a hexagon shelf using the ever so lovely timepiece patterned paper

I did lots of layering on the card , not only did I use the paper pad but I added so of the bits of the 12x12 patterned paper too

I used some pop dots behind the dressform to pop it forward and tucked one of the flower collectables just under the edge of it I also added some of the mini blooms with a bit of twine

Recipe Book | Kaisercraft

Today I'm sharing a recipe book created for our DT post featuring the recipe cards
I pulled out my bind it all that has been sitting on my scrap shelf for awhile just waiting to be used
And I also used my envelope tool to create the pages

So inside each page I've added a few recipe cards

I've embelished all the pages with collectables and bits of patterned paper 

So each page could be used as a different categorie 

I added some brads with punched circles that I can wind the twine around to close the pockets 

This would be a great gift to someone moving into a new home

Or for a daughter moving out with her favourite recipes
